    Played a bit of Lock in 2015

    I think you are looking at a low to mid 30s average

    Good option if you trust his job security. As well as Mannering, Paasi might come and take his spot.

    Tough one, toss a coin. Both have upside. DCE far more safe than either of them but feel Rochow could surprise with late 30s, early 40s scores which I don't anticipate Havilli reaching.

    Think I'll stick with my original picking in JT & Rochow.

    I'm in the same boat to be honest.

    https://www.nrlsupercoachtalk.com/wackos-whispers-2/

    Knights vs Sea Eagles

    Knights will be 1-17 with Connor Watson set to start with Mitchell Pearce in halves, it’s expected when Brock Lamb comes on it will be for Slade Griffin with Connor Watson moving to hooker. Mitch Barnett plays his 1st game after failing to play in any trials as he recovers from shoulder surgery. Sea Eagles I am expecting to be 1-17 with only possible change being Lloyd Perrett coming onto bench for Frank Winterstein. Daly Cherry-Evans will become the full time goal kicker for Manly this season.

    Cowboys vs Sharks

    Cowboys will be 1-17 with no late changes expected. Johnathan Thurston it’s expected will resume goal kicking duties after failing to kick in pre season games. Te Marie Martin will spend time at hooker to replace Jake Granville. Sharks have been dealt a massive blow with Luke Lewis failing to finish the captain’s run due to a ankle injury, Kurt Capewell will come into side and either him of Jayson Bukuya would start on right edge alongside Chad Townsend. Kurt Dillion did travel with the squad but I expect him to be 18th man. Paul Gallen will play his 1st game of year after failing to trial.

    Tigers vs Roosters

    Tigers will be 1-17 with Elijah Taylor (hamstring), Alex Twal (hamstring) and Benji Marshall (calf) all set to play in the 1st game of year after all didn’t trial due to injuries. Roosters aren’t expecting any changes but there are reports Cooper Cronk got stung by a stingray this week but he trained with the squad on Wednesday and will need to complete the captains run on Friday to be a confirmed starter. Boyd Cordner will play his 1st game of the year after recovering from knee surgery. Luke Keary won’t play after suffering headaches after he broke his jaw with Mitch Cornish set to fill in at Five Eighth.

    Rabbitohs vs Warriors

    Rabbitohs are tipped to be 1-17 with Adam Reynolds (foot) and Cameron Murray (quad) set to play their 1st games of the year after recovering from injury. Alex Johnston will play with a pain killing injection after picking up a rib injury in the Charity Shield. Warriors are also expected to be 1-17 with Isaiah Papali’I set to play left edge. Sam Cook will make his NRL debut from the bench and will rotate at hooker with Issac Luke.

    Bulldogs vs Storm

    Bulldogs set to be 1-17 with no late changes expected. Aaron Woods will play his 1st game for Bulldogs after not playing in any pre season games due to hamstring. Kerrod Holland has travelled with squad and expected to be 18th man. No changes expected for the Storm.

    Panthers vs Eels

    Panthers are expected to be 1-17 with Dallin Watene-Zelezniak having to pass final fitness test on his ankle injury to play. Waqa Blake and Corey Harawira-Naera will both played limited minutes in the pre-season as they recover from shoulder surgeries. Eels also set to be 1-17 with the only possible change to the starting 13 being potentially Brad Takarangai starting on right edge with Tepai Moeroa dropping back to bench.

    Titans vs Raiders

    Titans are expected to be 1-17 but they do have Anthony Don (shoulder), Jai Arrow (ribs), Kevin Proctor (throat) and Morgan Boyle (shoulder) all playing their 1st game of season after failing to play in any trials. Raiders are also set to be 1-17 with no late changes expected.

    Did a bit of reordering in my squad.

    Just realised how many cheapies I’m running in my 17. Hiku, Nichols, Katoa, Kikau and griffen.

    Last year coming back from ACL. Full pre season this year. In games he started at lock or came off the interchange last year where he played 39 minutes or more he averaged 43 points in 47 minutes. I think he will see around 50 minutes and has obviously earned the starting position regardless of GK. If he can average 4 points per game in goalkicking which is not out of the question then this average can push close to the 47-50 range, not bad for a player priced around 36. He scored 1 try and 3 goals in these 11 games. He is a player that can rack up the attacking stats and alsways gets good metres.

    A couple of interesting points in wackos.
    (1) Keary won't play so how does that affect the Roosters left edge or will it just be business as usual with Cornish starting.
    (2) Takairangi may start instead of Moeroa. Does this bring him back on the radar because Moeroa can play in the middle as well.

    Don't think so. When Macca starts Brisbane will have Lodge, TPJ, Thaiday, Sims and Ofa battling for minutes in the front row, along with McGuire playing up the middle.

    If it's a long term change, I'd want Taka. Don't want things shuffling on a week to week basis

    He is trash but trash can still score decent playing next to SJ and Tofu since that's the side he'll be on.

    1) Latrell may get early ball because ballhog Keary isn't playing.
