    Or can anyone suggest something else? I'm worried about paying premium for A, but equally concerned I miss theirs scores and price rises. JAC looks like Munster's preferred option so tries will be there for the next few weeks

    I like A :-)

    Is Thompson > Capewell a fair trade. Don't have confidence in Thompson.

    His only use is Rd13

    Had a shocker this week, lot of low scoring players but a lot of people seem to be in the same boat. My trade out list is starting to pile up which is worrying. Advice on what to do this week?

    Cook
    Arrow TPJ
    JFH RFM Lolo
    Maloney DCE
    GI Isaako
    Teddy Ponga Thompson

    CS9 Griffin Rein Kikau
    Havili Cogger Nicholls Soro

    Have 466k ITB. Should I be worrying about bringing a cow in or focus on building keepers. Keen for Fifita. Arrow is worrying and I might cut him. Was thinking of doing Thompson to RTS but RTS stats without Johnson concern me. And im avoiding the centre situation, Dugan screwed me over so not to sure what to do on that front. Thoughts fellas? Too much going on lol.

    Just for pleasure of the next few days looking at them in your team.

    yeah im letting go of him this week. he has done his dash and performed above expectations, particularly the two weeks prior with tries. cant see myself carrying him 4 weeks and potentially losing 50-100k for some points in rnd 13.

    im either bringing in capewell or a keeper (rts/turbo). problem with capewell is running with isaako/jmk in that 3rd wfb spot for a bit.. but he fits the bill 100% when it comes to cheapie cow who plays the bye rnd

    I'm lucky I don't have to worry about that problem. Capewells one job is to provide 40s at centre and make some cash. Hopefully he can do those things.

    Is anyone thinking Friend may be worth a pickup?
    Want to get DCE in also, but with his BE will prob wait another week.
    Arrow’s injury complicates things a bit...

    Smith
    Fifita TPJ
    Murray Arrow RFM
    DCE Matterson
    Mitchell Isaako
    Tedesco Ponga Mbye

    Cook
    Kikau
    JFH
    Sua

    Lane
    JMK
    Cogger
    Gosi

    Am I crazy for thinking Arrow(if he's iffy) to Martin and Isaako to Capewell? No CTR cover but that would leave me with about 580k to upgrade my cows when they peak. Not having any bank scares me. Thoughts please fellas?

    I had him from the start, and dropped him by rd 5 or 6 I think. He started well, but Radley started cutting into his game time, and he isn't playing 80....and I think he's scored more than 30 only once since round 4. I would avoid, at least for a few more rounds. Has another 50-100k to lose I think.

    Renegades was an interesting read. I don't agree with the trading Smith out but as stated, there is merit behind the idea.

    Very tempted to go cronk to Arey, arrow to burgess.

    Strengthens my rd13 prospects. Give arrow a few weeks to ‘shake it off’.

    I'm tempted to go

    Thompson > Capewell
    Arrow > ARey, leaves me with 19 trades, 270k and this team:

    Cook
    Fifita, Kikau
    Matterson, Murray, RFM
    DCE, ARey
    Aitken, Capewell
    Teddy, Ponga, Walker

    Smith, Maloney, JFH, Havili
    JMK, Hiku, Martin, Sorenson

    Next week can grab Taumalolo for Maloney

    Thoughts guys?

    I hope the people who bring Surgess in don't get too upset when he gets suspended again.

    Yeah, that will happen if I pick him up. Might go Taumalolo instead

    Over a 200 round score drop between round 8 and 9. I could really use some advice, I'm absolutely lost...

    Current Team
    Smith
    Surgess, Kikau
    RFM, Arrow, JTurbo
    JMK, Maloney
    Mitchell, Ramien
    Tedesco, TTurbo, Thompson

    INT:
    Havili, Rein, TPJ, JFH

    EMG:
    Sorenson, Cogger, Hiku, Gosi

    Trade thoughts:
    A: Arrow, Thompson --> Fifita, RTS ($58k remaining)
    B: Arrow, Sorenson --> Fifita, Martin ($228k remaining)
    C: Arrow, Gosi --> Fifita, Martin ($196k remaining)
    D: Arrow, Hiku --> Fifita, RTS ($5k remaining)

    $168k itb. 20 trades remaining.

    I currently have shit halves that need upgrading. Maloney --> Cleary with maybe DCE or SJ pairing with him is my ideal end state, but I have no clear path there and I don't know how to get there from where I am at the moment....

    Or do I keep Arrow and play Kikau. And go Havili/Maloney to ARey instead.

    Or just pass on ARey?

    You know the answer. We all do. The question is, are you willing to gamble on the ARey or not?

    @kalynponga Neither. I'd wait a week on Rapana and I'm not confident RTS scores well without SJ
