    Currently in the top 3 averaging 2fr's & hlf's. What's not to like. I prefer him over Fifita.

    DPP, break even ok, No origin. I researched other options but all (including RMat) are very inconsistent scorers. If Surgess wasn’t out he would be my pick however I like the Rmat option with a high ceiling in a team that on their day can put some points on.

    Thinking of cashing in Lodge and TPJ for Sorenson and Watson

    Banking on Watson taking over main half duties with pearce gone and sorenson to earn some quick cash.

    This will leave 333k in the bank for me to upgrade to a keeper half the next time I need to cash in somebody.

    If you mean effective at missing tackles as the Storm will run down that edge the whole time with no Harris, then possibly.

    I have started using RyMat. I like it. Feel it rolls off the tongue better.

    Hope I can make another LeBrown stick Razz

    Team value a bit of an issue after missing Thompson and Kikau. Will be grabbing a Knights half next week for Croker and probably moving Havili

    I don't think LeBrown, Lewis Brown or any other variation should be allowed to be mentioned with regards to fantasy! I've gotta admit, there was one time in my more foolish fantasy days that I regrettably traded him in.  Sad

    He was one of the top averaging centres around 2010/2011 when he was starting in the second row for the Warriors. Could do no wrong.
    Coincidentally, It might've been the same year that Maloney became a gun half from a basement price.

    After much MUCH deliberation I have decided to go with Rochow/Matterson instead of Fifita. It lets me move Matterson to my halves, JMK to WFB and Isaako to my non-playing reserves. I hope it works out.

    Thanks for the assistance I got yesterday with a question I had, and against my better judgement, but listening to the experts, the trainwreck that has been RTS remains in my team this week. However, I'm having real dilemmas finalising my bench. Thoughts on this would be appreciated;

    My one starter I'm considering putting in the Emergencies is RTS, but then that defeats the purpose of keeping him, doesn't it? But by a long way, he's my lowest scorer over the last 4 rounds.

    Bench (in current order);
    Rein
    JFH
    TPJ
    Terepo

    Emergency;
    S.Griffin
    Chompson
    Kennar
    L.Leilua

    Griffin and Thompson have both been loyal consistent servants, but is it worth taking the risk on TPJ and Terepo, both starting at lock, to give me a hopefully decent score?

    And is it just plain stupid to play Chompson and put RTS in my Emergencies, even though he's been absolutely terrible for 4 weeks running? And I expect that this week against the Storm he will struggle to even crack 10.

    Thoughts? And thanks!
