    Unfortunately, it doesn't look like there is much that will turn the ship around quickly. Pretty much what you've suggested, look to downgrade one to upgrade another. Even if youre not aiming too high, instead of Tolo look at players like Harris or Jurbo/McGuire. Your team doesn't look to dissimilar to many around her, unfortunately it seems you've just backed the wrong horse a few times.

    I think I've gone one or two too many of the value picks. Should have started aiming higher instead of filling up on money makers. Wouldn't have been a problem but most of them have shit themselves at the same time.

    Had a look and complied a shortlist of the fantasy relevant players available for R13. Honestly, feels like slim pickings. A lot of these guys aren't worth getting, but I've listed them because they're in some teams already and people might be looking to hold them for R13.

    The Origin Possibles are players talked about for Origin but will be available for R13 if they aren't picked. Some of them are more likely than others to get selected (I can't see TTurbo not getting picked, for example). Origin certainties (JTurbo, etc) I didn't bother to list.

    R13 Shortlist
    Surgess
    Matterson
    Ponga
    Crichton
    N.Brown
    Fifita
    Taumalolo
    Murray
    E. Taylor
    Fitzgibbon
    Taupau
    Alvaro
    C. Walker
    Friend
    L. Mitchell
    C. Thompson
    Ese'ese
    Gutherson
    Kennar
    Thurston
    SST
    Gosiewski
    L. Croker
    M. Nicholls
    R. Robinson
    Rochow
    Gallen

    Origin Possibles
    Cook
    DCE
    Koroisau
    TTubro
    Pearce
    Ferguson
    Inglis
    Guerra

    You don't think Guerra has a chance of getting back into the QLD side mate? Would have him back the way he's currently playing. Knows the system, fits the mold...

    I feel like I am super stuck. I have no idea who to trade out, who to trade in. I would love to get Surgess in he has been a part of my plans since pre-season. I just have no idea who to downgrade and to who. Then who to upgrade Sad

    Trade Outs?-
    1. Kennar
    2. Doughy
    3. Lodge
    4. Griffin / Rochow
    5. Hiku
    6. LCroker
    7. Inglis

    Lets get some reasons behind this guys and I'll do some homework on whether I thin they're sells or holds.

    Fair point. I'll move him to the possibles section. It certainly wouldn't be the worst selection in QLD history.

    Look, if GI and Matt Scott are "certainties" to come back into the team then I'll take Guerra for sure!

    Lodge to Gosiewski
    Rochow to Sua

    These are my planned trades this week(more for cash flow than anything) is the second one too sideways and should I just bring in Surgess/Taupau? which would wipe out my bank again.Alternatively I could go Kennar to Sua instead?

    Walters must be regretting his comments on those two. Neither are in form or warrant selection imo. Although as a Blues supporter I certainly hope he meant what he said and they both push better players out of the side Razz.

    Of course Wolfy, plenty of time for you mate! Sorry, must've missed it prior. Will get to it as soon as I've sussed out ST's.

    1. Kennar - Relies on tries. Peaked. Don't attack down his edge much.
    2. Doughy - needs an injury to be relevant
    3. Lodge - Peaked. Injured??
    4. Griffin / Rochow - Rochow - if tigers aren't defending there is not much for him to do
    5. Hiku
    6. LCroker - Priced around his average now. DCE taking over the show, didn't realise Croker was playing half the time
    7. Inglis
    8. TPJ - Minutes are all over the place. With the win against Warriors Bennett could stick to same game plan
    9. Thompson - Seems to be dieing down week by week. Looks dangerous but not scoring tries anymore.

      Current date/time is Wed Sep 26, 2018 9:48 pm
