    There is no way Murray doesnt revert to BAU. He's one of the strongest links in that pack, not the weakest.

    Captain Cook, Murray and Kennar made me sad as well as the Bunnies losing to the Broncos. Only had those 3 plus Smith, Teddy and Mitchell. So mixed bag but definitely not hitting the heights that I did last week, but plenty of games to go mate.

Great for the team not so great for fantasy. Also seemed to be playing a linking role through the middle in attack rather than taking hit ups. Lots of times being one pass off the ruck then hitting Walker or Johnston on the sweep. In defense he was solid as always. Putting Broncos players on their back or turning them for a slow play the ball. As usual he had great ruck control and was one of the reasons South were so dominant early. I'm willing to go for an avatar bet that when Surgess comes back (baring injury) it will be Sutton or one of the twins that miss out not Murray.

    Maybe one of the twins but no way Sutton will be benched.

    I still like Murray. First game back from injury, he’ll be right. Good kid.

    Walker has been pretty consistent all year... just a shame he doesn’t get the big scores alongside his usual 50 or so. You guys see last week he was on 35 points after 12mins?!! 38 at half time, then his eventual 46 I think it was at full time. I thought at 12min he was in for 100 points plus. Not to be.

    He looked good early then the game just got away from them and he went MIA for most of the game. A couple of nice plays at the end saved his score. He needs to run more. I don't think there is any cause for panic just yet.

    Murrays minutes for a lock was concerning but I'm going to put it down to the coach easing him back into the workload.

    Good point, they were ahead on points when Murray was on the field and losing on points when he was off it.

    Same stats provider bro - there's no way these guys put in such a shitty job for their NBA, NFL type contracts. They must just not give a fuck about it aye. Really gutting to not have the game scored properly.

    The only advantage with VSDT is they update their stats faster than NRLF and have a stable platform that very rarely has any problems.

    That is stupid. Really puts you off putting so much effort into this game when players aren't scored properly

    Well given that the fox stats for TPJ are not significantly different (they actually gave him 1 less TB), maybe they are scoring properly?

    Consistently inconsistent is the way I'd describe them. So in the absence of any bias it probably works out about even for all of us.

    The problem is we all watch certain players very closely (in relation to how they are being scored) and others not so much. Therefore it's easy to feel like you are getting a shitty deal, and to be honest regardless of whether it all balances out, I think we are getting a pretty shitty deal. It really is not hard to record these sort of data accurately and consistently; it just take a bit of time and effort. I think organised fantasy sports comps should demand that these data are of a high standard, otherwise it just isn't fair to the people who put a lot of effort into playing the game...

    Amazes me the overwhelming concensus that TPJ was scored too low. I felt lonely in my opinion last night that he was just about right but the weight of different opinions meant i kept my mouth shut as I assumed i must be wrong about it. But since then ive watched the game again I can be more confident (not that I wasnt already watching him the the scrutiny of a jealous ex lover since I traded him out last round) that I think his score is pretty spot on. He was very unlucky in that both his big breaks he still had hands hanging onto his jersey by a thread, so no TB ad no LB, also you dont get points for a strip. He looked good doing it but actually scored very few points.

    So many people need to go to specsavers

    Great week for my trades

    Lodge ---> RyMat
    Dufty ---> Cogger

    If Cogger gets a half decent score, that is!

    Be interesting to hear what happens with Kennar. Thankfully I played Inglis ahead of him last night.
    Also picked Smith over Cook for cap.

    Sitting just insde the top 2,000 on live rank now.

    Champion Data only gave TPJ 1 tackle break as well.

    If anything STATS have overscored him.

    I would not use the people of this forum for proof that players are over/under scored, especially on TBs. Collectively this forum has proven over the years that we have no idea what constitutes a TB for stats purposes (other than that we "know" the stats guys are always wrong)

    Sitting at 23rd but assume there is one or two popular captains to come.

    Was hoping to distance myself from shitty CTR scores by getting rid of Isaako, Kennar and relegating Hiku to EMG. Roll up Aitkens 22, just something unavoidable I guess.

    Moral of the story, don't feel ba bout having to play one or two of them cheaper options. A lesson I will take into next year

    7/369 with RyMatt(c). Middle of the pack I'd guess.

    Could've done with Bird getting a bit more involved. Serious lack of confidence there, but I reckon he'll come good.

    Fair enough

    All my housemates thought he was unlucky not to get a LBA and then we thought we saw plenty of TB's.

    But yeah perhaps his score was pretty much right and I was been a bit biased
