    if I chuck togetehr a WAGS team I might have a looper in there somewhere.

    I don't want to risk a precious cash cow spot on a non player for round 1 though. I'm sure someone will get injured/suspended soon enough and present a loop opportunity naturally.

    Yeah mate, still torn myself but there is no reason why he shouldn't get 55 odd minutes.

    Righto, next ballsy question: Anyone captaining Teddy?

    And to expand, if you didn't have Smith would you captain Cook, Fifita, Brown or Teddy?

    A) NAS and DCE
    B) Whitehead and Townsend

    B seems a lot safer

    Actually how about C instead of A + Godinet
    Bromwich Townsend Fualolo 1k remaining

    Don't know enough about Fualolo

    My final dilemma: Do I keep the 255k in the bank, or upgrade one of Arrow or RFM to someone like Merrin....or a 228k like isaako to say a Bevan French

    I would probably run Cook as captain if I didn't have Smith. Has some pedigree for 60's and you basically know he is guaranteed 80 unless he gets injured. Just think Smith will score 65+ most weeks, especially with a young half and then Jacks as the other half.

    I would keep it, but really its a lot of cash to have sitting there.

    I wouldn't upgrade those forwards that are 15 points potentially underpriced. But don't like the French pick either as he relies on tries.

    Bowen legit centre option with Linnett out? I’ve got Cotric as my other CTR right now.

    Having abit of trouble on deciding on who gets the last spot. would appreciate any advice.

    Smith(c)
    Lodge SST
    RFM Merrin Whitehead
    Croft Cartwright
    Isaako (unsure on this centre spot) Inglis
    Ponga Teddy Katoa

    Cook Arrow Griffin Kikau

    Croker Nicholls Havili

    I've got 591k to play with, was thinking moses into the halves- cartwright on the bench.

    Bowen not a viable option. No reason to think he will outscore his average by any reasonable amount.

    Yeah, there isn't many great options but the money is burning a hole in my pocket. I've never started a season with even 100k in the bank, nevermind 250! Maybe I could replace Isaako with someone like Hayne, but I don't think he'll be that great...or risk no CTW/WFB on the bench and buy Ese Ese.....NAS....Elliot....AFB

    Dammit brain.
