    Which team is a good red dot that plays later in the week for the remainder of the season?

    Top of the ladder loop watch.

    Zoras has 21 green dots and can't loop

    Verbal not using Luai to loop (could have had a free look at Farah if he wished)

    3rd took a free look at TPJ (looks like playing Holland instead might have been the better move)

    4th not using Luai to loop

    5th not using Aekins to loop

    Only 1 of top 5 looping this week (albeit Zoras doesn't have a choice)

    From here on out, the Dragons and the Sharks have no Thursday or Friday games. If you want a red dot choose one from these two teams

    if you had 5 trades left, would you sell one of Aitken/Mitchell/RTS to get Holland's 74 into your 17?
    Potentially trade them straight back in next week.

    I think Roosters have the most Sunday games for the last six weeks.

    I don't know if that's worth it. 2 trades for 74 points. Do you have a plodder that you can trade instead? I'm doing mann to red dot and subbing Aitken out with 3 trades left after that. Gets rid of Mann for some cash and can keep Aitken. I wouldn't trade one of them out and then back in truthgully.

    But looping just gained Zoras 15 points.
    And not looping has cost Verbal 78 points.

    Big turn around if situations has been reversed.

    I couldn't be bothered tbh. I have a bit more time next week to perhaps plan something if the situation fits

    It won't even be 74 points, it'll be the difference between 74 and what Aitken scores.
    However, the way I've structured it - it gives me the chance to potentially loop Holland again next week.

    I'll still have the red dot in my centres. Holland plays well and scores another big one, I don't trade Aitken back in.
    Holland scores poorly, I trade Aitken back in and take his score.

    2x trades for 2 looping opportunities. and if Holland scores well, I don't trade Aitken in, I can do it all again the following week and so on and so on until Holland has a poor score or round 23 which is the next time Holland plays after Aitken.

    Can engineer my team so I have either an extra forward (Arrow or Kikau) or an extra WFB (RTS) as my 18th man. Does it make more sense to have the extra fullback to loop given variability of WFB scores or an extra 2RF given the greater prospect of an Arrow or Kikau going boom?

    With Gold Coast playing before Penrith, and Arrow's injury concerns I would be tempted to loop Arrow and play Kikau if he doesn't perform.

    I think that in general looping a WFB has more potential though - if you are confident of Arrow's fitness and/or his kickoff time doesn't suit looping.

    Rabs, I reckon play M Wright in your WFB

    then have

    19. Brimson
    20. Cotric
    21. Manu

    If Brimson goes well, leave as is - you'll get Brimson's score
    If Brimson sucks, then swap Cotric and Wright. This would make you a dirty filthy cheater. hope your cloaca is ready for it.

    You could also do Manu at 19 and Brimson and 21 if you think Manu is more likely to go big.

    You would want to be confident Wright doesn't get a last minute call up.
