    Arrow's back issues are very concerning. I'd almost prefer him to sit out now and get it sorted, rather than sustain a significant injury down the line. Does anybody know the nature of the injury?

    Reference Welch, will he keep big minutes with those injuries? He'll be over $500k next week so he'll be a risk

    As someone who's had ongoing lower back injuries since high-school, my experience is that it's just one of those things you have to deal with. You can do all the stretching and exercises in the world, but it seems that if you're prone to it, it will happen (and often in really innocuous situations).

    Having second thoughts on trading in RTS. Trades probably going to be Croker>Cogger and Edwards>Friend. Gives me 2 extra round 13 players and I can look to move Rein to a keeper half with Mbye going to WFB when Peats gets back. Anything obvious I'm missing with this group after trades? Keepers in bold

    Smith
    Arrow Fifita

    Murray JFH, RFM
    Maloney Mbye
    Croker Hiku
    Ponga Dufty, JMK

    Rein, Cook, Brown, Friend

    Su'a, Cogger, Gosiewski, Havili

    If Gelling is picked ahead of Kata, I'm bringing him in. Much stronger in all aspects of play

    Even if he is picked( a big IF), one bad game and he will be dropped for Kata or Beale.

    @sajjos I need to trade out Doueihi as he's leaking cash. Gelling will also make $150k in 3 games now so as long as his dud game is in 4 games time, that's fine haha

    I cashed out Kennar to Gelling last week, considered playing him over Isaako for a moment, but laughed it off.. think I'll take the punt on him if he does get another week.

    I think it's too much of a risk too mate, but go with your gut.

    Kata is the established ctr. He's been injured before & walked straight back into the team. I'd say Gelling will go back to the bench when Kata is gtg.

    Croker to Aubbs and pray, He just might get a meat pie against Manly. I know, I know but there it is.

    I am a virgin trading in Aubbs. The alternative is Ramien for Kennar. Your thoughts?

    I'm burning through trades but I'm not keen on carrying jetski through to 13 on the small chance he plays, so he is Goneski

    Goneski to Cogger and Kennar to Ramien a go-er? I could take Aubbs over Ramien for a ~100k discount and DPP but it would also bring great shame upon me and my family

    Fonua worth considering? Tigers had some interesting stats about his offloads tacklbusts etc. looked juicy.

    He's a unit. Job security? Was MWZ injured or dropped?

    The only negative for Aubusson is that he'll go back to the bench when Tupou returns (I don't know his expected return date).

    It's down to Ramien or Marsters for me mate. I think I will spend the coin on Marsters though. Aubbs did cross my mind. Just worry when Tupou comes back what happens, I don't want to waste another trade getting him out. Would rather get someone now that will stay there all year.

    Thanks Wolfie, I am aware of the stigma of the Aubbs pick. How long is Kennar expected to be out. I cannot afford Masters so it would be Ramien if Kennar is out for 4 weeks or more.

    Being around the top twenty means I have to address the centre issue unfortunately as I will get a zero if not fixed. Sold Isaako for Soro and still have Gossy and Croker issues. Poor me lol.
