    I loopholed Havili over Isaako this week, for a beautiful bonus of 1 extra point

    (should have played Hiku or Gosie for 2 and 3 extra points respectively)

    So from four weeks of loopholing I now have a grand total of +4 points.

    Looking forward to my 20 extra points come the end of the season Sad

    Hard luck there Chewie

    Sometimes the match schedule just doesn't fall the right way to make the loop possible

    I'm assuming you are looking at looping Sorensen and Gosiewski

    If so, set up your bench as follows

    JFH
    Kikau
    Ponga
    Brown
    Gosiewski
    Sorensen
    Croker
    Katoa

    If Gosie scores well, do nothing

                       At the end of the round Gosie will AE into Brown's position

    If Gosie scores poorly, swap Sorensen into Brown's position. You will have to make this swap before the Titans vs Sharks match. You will then get Sorensen's score at the end of the round






    If you wont to take a bigger risk, you could loop Sorensen with Croker and perform a double loop with Katoa

    Before you set this one up you have to decide who will score better out of Kennar and Isaako. If you decide that Kennar is going to be the better scorer, set your team as follows (if you choose Isaako instead, just swap their positions in the team below)


    Cook
    Arrow  Lodge
    TPJ  Murray  Tlolo
    Maloney  DCE
    Mitchell  Kennar
    Ponga  Tedesco  Katoa

    JFH
    Kikau
    Gosiewski
    Brown
    Croker
    Sorensen
    Hiku
    Isaako


    After the Storm vs Warriors match check Hiku's score

    If you like his score do nothing with Hiku, Isaako and Katoa

                              At the end of the round Hiku will AE into your starting team in place of Katoa

    If Hiku's score is very poor, swap Isaako into your starting team in place of Katoa

                              At the end of the round you will get Isaako's score

    After the Sea Eagles vs Knights match check Croker's score

    If Croker scores well, do nothing

                       At the end of the round Croker will AE into Brown's position

    If Croker scores poorly, swap Sorensen into Brown's position. You will then get Sorensen's score


    I hope this wasn't confusing

    Good luck

    I'm so happy failhub advertised they got rid of the Captains loophole this year. Something to be really proud of. A+

    They also advertised that they'd gotten rid of the captain's loophole last year, when they'd just replaced it with a different captain's loophole

    Looped Gosiewski over Hiku.

    Another 1 point gain. that is a total of 2 points gained over the past 2 weeks.

    If anyone wants me I'll be rolling in the piles of cash I've made through loophole profiteering.

    I haven't looped all season - but not only will next week be my first, but I'll be double looping Smile

    With injuries to Croker and Gosiewski I'll be able to:
    1) have a look at JMK and then decide whether or not to play Maloney over him at half, and
    2) have a look at Havili for my 4th INT and then decide whether or not to play Thompson over him

    Now watch this space and see it completely unravel Smile

    I'll be looping this week... with Gosie playing the last game, I can see how JMK goes (18th man)
    Cogger to be the back-up.

    I expect JMK to hit 40 odd this week if he plays hooker, no real need to loop, but it's nice to have a backup

    Are you concerned about the possibility that you may want to play both JMK and Maloney?

    I mean, if JMK scores 40, are you going to put a guy with a 3 round average of 52 in your EMG

    There's always a chance/concern you don't get things right obviously but the flip side is you give your self options you otherwise wouldn't have. In short, I think those options provide a greater likelihood of a higher total score than anything else.

    I rank the scoring of the 4 as Maloney>Havili>JMK>Thompson at this stage. So with that in mind the double loop option makes the most sense (I think).

    Also, I think Havili is the sort of player you want to have the chance to loop (the way he's going this year - big role changes week-by-week + the odd try) and with the change in role anticipated for JMK I'd like to have a look at him too. I'd be happier to do that than the alternatives at this stage.

    If I go with my initial strategy I'd keep JMK at 45+ and keep Havili at 40+ and have to suck up the consequences if the other two end up scoring higher.... My gut says I'll end up playing Maloney and Havili.

    Have my team lined up like this

    Ponga, Teddy, Dugan

    Smith
    Maloney
    Havili
    Gossie
    JMK
    CWalker
    Thompson
    Sorenson

    If JMK goes big leave it as is.
    If Walker goes big leave it as is.

    If JMK goes bust can chuck Thompson into 17 for Gossie
    If JMK and Walker go bust can chuck Thompson in for Dugan and trade Gossie to Lane/DWalker

    Make sense to anyone, or trying to be too cute?

    If JMK busts and you swap Thompson with Gosiewski (and no other changes) then Thompson will sub for Dugan, and JMK will come into reserves

    It's more the management of it I enjoy. Don't really care about the points differential since I don't think it will be a huge deal over a season

    Quoting myself here, which I know is bad form, but whatever


    Got sick of averaging just a one point gain each week, so forced the issue last week by looping Sorensen over Doueihi. Netted 22 points.

    This week I have Macca over Sorensen so I'm hoping for an even better result, assuming that Macca plays big minutes. I guess they killed his old clone and got a fresh one out of the tank.
