    Wright plays before Cotric locks out, so if he does end up playing you could just swap Cotric in and get whatever Cotric scores (which is probably what you would be doing anyway if not looping)

    Just means you have to make sure you log on sometime between 1 and 2pm on Sunday afternoon to check teams.

    I would probably agree with the cow though and loop either Brimson or Manu with Wright in your WFB and if they suck then play Cotric.

    The other option is to leave Wright at 17 and play someone with potential to go large and who plays early say, Lewis at 18 and if he scores well keep it, if not, sub your 19th player in for Wright.

    Thanks for the input there boys. Plenty to consider, but I’m likely to stay a cleanskin and not putrify myself Coffee

    I think I’m going to sully myself.

    17. Wright
    18. Lewis
    19. The Huth
    20. Brimson
    21. Manu

    If Lewis scores well tonight, which I think he will, leave him. If he sucks I will swap the Huth in. He’s good for 40 off the bench. Then again, Brimson only has the Eels. Farked if I know. Toss a coin.

    I'd go Brimson too. Maybe slightly higher risk but more reward.

    So I can move Tlolo out for a red dot and pick up RTS 61.

    Thoughts?
    Other options are Taupau or JTurbo

    Tell me this Loop Lords:

    CTR = red dot

    WFB = Latrell (wfb/ctr)

    EMG1 = Dufty
    EMG2 = Isaako

    Does Dufty's score count - bumping Latrell to CTR,
    or
    Does Isaako's score count - being only CTR in EMG?

    You'd get Isaako's score.

    This week I'm setting up as follows:

    CTR: Olive

    18: Brimson
    19. Waqa
    20. Holland

    so if Waqa scores well, I leave it. If not, switch Holland to #18.

    Problem is its a quick decision and I have a tourney on Saturday and don't know if I'll be playing at the time or not. Have to find out game times.

    EDIT: Final game is either at 2pm or 3pm. Should be able to check and switch after the first NRL game!

    Ive always been against this utterly vial behaviour. But, im willing to corrupt my morals in order to desperately hang on to a top 50 finish.

    Can someone please explain what my loop options are, if any.

    Cook
    Fifita, James
    Jurbo, Martin, Tolo
    Dce, Sj
    Aitken, Cotric
    Tturbo, Ponga, Teddy

    Smith, Farah, Mcinnes, Fainu
    Rapana, Lewis, Alvaro, Perrrt.

    My only red dots are, Alvaro and Perret. It seems like I don't have many options right?

    You can potentially do a couple of different loops, although I don't know if any of them are really worth it.

    You could loop SJ with whoever you think will be your lowest scoring hooker (probably Farah or Fainu.) This requires you to take Lewis's score, so is probably not worthwhile.

    You could also loop either Ponga or Tedesco with whoever you think will be your lowest scoring hooker (probably Farah or Fainu.) This requires you to take Rapana's score, so is a bit more acceptable than the above loop. To use this loop (assuming that you are using Ponga rather than Tedesco) set your team as follows;


    Cook
    Perrrt, James
    Jurbo, Martin, Tolo
    Dce, Sj
    Aitken, Cotric
    Tturbo, Rapana, Teddy

    Smith
    Mcinnes
    Farah / Fainu
    Fifita
    Ponga
    Farah / Fainu
    Lewis
    Alvaro


    If Ponga goes massive on Friday make no changes. At the end of the round Fifita will AE sub into the front row for Perrett and Ponga will move into position 17

    If Ponga is crap, swap Fifita with whichever one of Farah or Fainu that you have in position 19. At the end of the round Fifita will AE sub into the front row for Perrett

    Any benefit you see from this loop may be wiped out by Rapana getting a crap score, so you will be taking a risk if you decide to go ahead with it.


    Good Luck

    The Panthers game should finish at about 4.30pm and the lockout for the Bulldogs game should be at about 5.00pm. If you're available between these times I say go for it

    Yeah looks like our last game is 2pm-330pm so might be most of the way back to Melbourne, can pull over on the highway to make the switch before 530pm.

    You mean 5.00 pm don't you? The game starts at 5.30 pm but the lockout is at 5.00 pm



    Hey hey. I've hit triple figures for posts. At this rate I should hit the 1K in about 25 years

    I thought lockout was half an hour before each match started. I could be wrong though


    Just looked at their rules page and it does say that the lockout is at the start of the match. I've been panicking myself all season when it comes to my looping unnecessarily. What an idiot I am!

    "You can Trade and Substitute players, and change Interchange and Emergency selections right through each round, up until the time of the start of a player’s Team's actual match. Players are locked into your Team only at the time that their actual NRL match has started."

    So why would one game each round lockout 30mins early? Surely you're pulling my leg.

      Current date/time is Wed Oct 24, 2018 3:06 pm
