    If Kennar gets the score you want you will need to swap Thompson with Croker, so that Kennar will AE sub into your team at the end of the round rather than Thompson.
    You will have to make any necessary changes as soon as the Rabbitohs vs Raiders match finishes so your Tigers players don't get locked into their positions when the Tigers vs Knights match begins at 5.30 pm.


    If you see Havilli scoring 50 points as an acceptable score to activate his part of your double loop then you will be wanting Kennar to score that (or better) to make his loop worthwhile. You'd be duding yourself 10 points if you chose Kennar's 40 over Havilli's 50.

    If it was me I'd want 55 or better from Kennar to use this part of the double loop

    This part is all good. Just bear in mind the lockout for the Tigers vs Knights match at 5.30 pm again.

    Good luck

    Ah yep, I knew Ive forgotten something. Good point on the Kennar scoring higher than Havili. Thanks mate.

    Bench setup for this week:

    Smith
    Havili
    Maloney
    Murray

    Isaako
    JMK
    Thompson
    Gos

    Who should be 18 out of Isaako/JMK

    If whoever I choose shits the bed I either hope Murray is in or I replace him with Thompson or Gos

    Thoughts loopholers?

    G'day mate

    This sounds like more of a player advice question rather than a loopholing question. If you want to take advice from a guy with double digit posts who has had Takarangi, Ramien, Katoa and Maloney in his team, I'll give it a go.

    Of Isaako and JMK, I would say Isaako has the best potential to post a massive score (even though they are playing the Storm) so I would leave him in Position 18.

    Assuming that Murray's hamstring is good to go, I don't think he will have lost too much match fitness and he could well get close to his regular minutes and his regular score. Ideally, you would want him to be named and you just take his score and not worry about doing any looping.

    If Murray is named, but Seibold tells the media that he is going to be eased back in with reduced minutes, then wait until Isaako posts his score. If his score is below 40, I would probably take a punt on Thompson outscoring that and would therefore swap Thompson into Murray's position.

    I hope this makes sense. I don't want to give bad advice to a fellow Bulldogs supporter.

    Cheers

    No worries mate. Makes complete sense and pretty much along the lines of what I'm going to do this week. Appreciate the input.

    Hope your week is progressing well

    If you still need help with this, just post your full team and I'll see what can be done.

    Sorry mate. It looks like I've screwed you already.

    Who would have thought that JMK would score 57.

    No worries mate. I had a last minute change of heart and put JMK in the 18 Laughing

    If Arrow is out (only heard rumours) will this setup work.

    Cook
    Havili
    Arrow
    Murray

    JMK
    Isaako
    Maloney
    Thompson

    In my eyes I get JMKs score regardless now, then if Issako goes big again I leave as is.
    If he goes average I can choose Maloney/Thompson to take Arrows place??

    Or on second thought move Thompson to Issakos spot, have more confidence in Thompson doing well against the Knights

    Hey mate,

    I think the best scenario for you given the circumstances would be:

    #17 Katoa
    #18 Isaako
    #19 Havali
    #20 Murray
    #21 Doughy

    If Issako does really well (i reckon set the target for 40+), leave as is. If not, swap Havali with Katoa.

    Doughy too risky to loop. If he does play, he prob only get <10 points and screw up the loop. So best to just leave in EMG

    Doughy Murray Isaako Katoa


    Since SJ is your red flag, Doughy will be brought into the squad due to being the only HLF on your bench. If he scores terribly you have to take it. Even if he gets a DNP then I'm site you still get a 0 due to there not being another HLF on your bench.
    I don't see why bringing Katoa into your squad is useful as you already have 3 perfectly fine WFBs

    Yes, this is correct assuming that Arrow and Murray are scratched

    This one will work as well and I like it a whole lot better than the one above. IMO Thompson will score better than Isaako and you would be better off using him in a loop with Maloney (Disclaimer: my previous post regarding Isaako and JMK)

    Your emg line-up would be:

    JMK
    Thompson
    Maloney
    Isaako

    If Thompson scores well do nothing
    If Thompson gets a poor score swap Maloney with Arrow.

    As the Tigers vs Knights match will finish at about the same time as the lockout for the Cowboys vs Titans match begins you will need to make any necessary swap before the end of the Tigers vs Knights match. This will involve keeping tabs on Thompson's score for 60-70 minutes and estimating what his final score will be. If it's a bad score make the swap before 6.55 pm AEST. In the UK I guess that would be 9.55 am

    Good luck

    With SJ out, Doueihi will be scoring for you, as your only other half.
    If you want to loop will have to be using Murray or Katoa

    So can someone just confirm. I get JMK's score, and then if Lodge/Su'a (Unsure who to play) go huge. I also get theres, if they bust I can move Griffin up for one of the guys out and get his score instead.
