    haha exactly, though at least the Dragons are playing well and that is good for attacking stats as a half.
    Rapana has only scored one try as well, only a matter of time before he goes huge

    Vaughan and Dugan out for A. Reynolds and L. Mitchell sound like ok trades?

    Or I could do Dufty and Dugan out and S. Johnson and P. Haas in?

    He has mate almost all base stats as well! shed load of minus points last week as well and was the only player to kick a ball for Souths last week  Rolling Laugh

    nothing worse than watch him score well and go down after every wack he takes after punting the ball a mile, then praying to god he gets back up

    His spiral bombs are something else

    Pete only reason I'm saying no to ARey is injury concern, he is a great fantasy player when he isn't taking 5 minutes to get up after every late hit

    Do you think Haas is worth a trade? I don't see him getting the minutes to add worthwhile value.

    Have had Walker since the start. Just waiting for him to actually try for 80 minutes and blitz it.

    Paseka would probably better a better punt if you want a FRF or tomorrow with late mail we may have Martin as a solid option too

    Esan Marsters, $574k (38 points)
    Averaging 39 points a game this year, despite not scoring a try.
    Lolohea's return to the Tigers team, should it happen, would see him lose goal kicking  - he is currently getting 5 points a game from goal kicks.
    Last year he averaged 38 points from 11 games at Tigers (5 tries in these games)
    Personally, without reliable goal kicking I feel he falls a bit below keeper status.

    Does not scoring a try come into play? I know you've mentioned it but a try here or there immediately boosts his average. The loss of goal kicking would hurt but there's nothing saying he doesn't retain it even if Lolohea returns. If he's getting 5 points from kicking that makes his average 34. That's not bad for a centre that hasn't had a meat pie yet.


    (Yes, I'm talking myself into trading him in.)

    Bump: Being in Europe means I sometimes have limited time to take advantage of your advice. I'd love to get a couple of ideas before my Ozzie mates go to sleep

    Hey all

    I found this forum before the start of this season and have been a lurker ever since. With the help of the forum, I'm currently sitting at 120 overall.

    Little about me...I'm an American that lives in Portugal but spent a summer down under and fell in love w/ NRL.

    I hope to begin contributing to the forum, as much as an American can. Haha. I'd appreciate a little advice for this week if anyone would be so willing

    Teddy Ponga Thompson

    Griffin
    Cam
    Rein
    NBrown

    Su'a
    JMK
    Sorenson
    Dugan

    Option A: Dugan>Walker/Ramien & Brown>Lolo
    Option B: Dugan>Walker/Ramien, next week Brown>Surgess
    Option C: Nothing this week
    Option D: Any other option

    Thanks all!

    You'd have to wait and see on Martin you'd think, but if the changes to the team works then could be a perfect downgrade option for next week.

    Thanks mate, I don’t think I could afford Walker and Mitchell together, maybe Marsters instead?
    Do you like the S. Johnson option instead? I can then get Haas as well or another cash cow?

    Possibly, he did look good to watch but I see your point.

    Welcome mate. Great team depth first of all. You don't really need to trade but I think Nathan Brown needs to go. Hiku and Isaako aren't the best options, but saying that, considering the options for the positions, they are fine for now. I like option A, but I'd go Ramien over Walker personally. If you are happy to run those centres downgrade Dugan to maybe a Coggar so you can do another upgrade next week perhaps.

    Does Johnson and his recent weeks out with a groin injury scare you at all?

    Manly supposedly in breach of Barrett's contract around staffing/ support. 

    First reaction was wow more manly drama, but after reading the article this seems like  another non-story/media blowing more stuff up given club apparently addressing his resourcing issues?
