    I want to bring in a good 3rd wfb to play instead of Thompson (already have Teddy & Ponga) but no one is really putting their hand up & saying pick me.
    RTS - no SJ impacts his score
    Turbo - in terrible form/plays origin
    Gutherson - poor form & high b/e will lose cash
    Mbye - poor form
    C. Walker - was keen on him but playing Dragons
    Slater - can see him scoring big v Titans but origin

    I need to work out who to get rid of this week, out of Arrow, Johnson, Thompson and Nicholl's. Could probably throw Hiku in, but I think he has points in him.

    ATM I'm going Thompson and Nicholl's, but injuries of the first 2 could change that. If SJ is a month, I think I need him out. Arrow I can afford to hold for a few weeks with Surgess back.

    Just gotta wait for news I guess.

    Taupau is surely impossible to ignore now. He seems to be putting in new level performances given the injuries to he Manly pack. His minutes are up a bit, but his PPM has gone up heaps. 2 games to work with but if you are interested in him it seems like it is this week or never right? A FRF pairing of Taupau/Fifita is a massive leg up on the opposition at the moment.


    Trapau does this every year.

    Between rounds 8-14 last year he averaged 67 points.
    From 16 - end of year he averaged 47.

    Over the past few seasons his long term average has consistently been around 50 points. If you buy him now, you are paying a premium for scores he is unlikely to maintain long term.

    Not many decent cash out options this week. Capewell seems a week too late for me, Campbell Graham is a 20 point winger without tries. Doesn't look big on tbs or offloads. Martin has questionable job security but a low B/E so is probably best of a bad bunch. Might only be one trade this week

    I am betting on TTrbo coming good.

    Want to wait for the price difference between Thompson and TTrbo to be at its lowest and make the switch then. Ideally after round 13

    Don't want to stuff around trying to predict runs of form, and don't want to waste trades switching players out every time they have a poor couple of games.

    Rapana is one you have mentioned who might be worth a punt though

    No idea what to do this week

    Smith
    Fifita Arrow
    Murray TPJ RFM
    Matterson ARey
    Inglis Mitchell
    Teddy Ponga Mbye
    Cook Kikau Su'a JFH

    Cogger Haas Isaako Martin

    Cogger and Haas feel like wasted trades now. I can poophole with Haas now though. Ima dirty bitch.


    Arrow to Taupau or Taumalolo would be obvious but they could break form just as easily.

    Any thoughts ideas etc?

    Who's worth holding out of this lot (I'm trading 2 of them out to get Fifita and Surgess): Arrow, SJ, Dugan

    Just a quick note on team selection based on fixtures.

    Everyone assumed the Roosters would walk away with the minor premiership.

    They said this because the Roosters had an easy draw where they only have to play the Eels once, but get to play the Dragons and Warriors twice each.

    I'm having a good look at Taupau but he feels a bit too expensive. Are we chasing a bit...? I'll probably regret it but I think I'm going to give him a miss.

    I'm in the same boat, but I'll likely hold all 3. Mainly a H2H player though so that does impact my decision making. If I had to trade one of them though it's whoever will be out the longest.

    I haven't even thought about upgrading him but didn't realise he was over 700K now. Could go straight to Fifita.

    Any interest in Uate? This weekend has probably jump started his cash making but he would need a few more tries to be worth two trades. Might be worth a spot as a final 21 back up at wfb

    Already pencilled in this trade. Had a look at him last week but thought Dragons he's a winger and doesn't play 13. Next 2 Titans and Manly at home and they were going to him every time

    I think most games he’ll play the 80. It’ll be the rare one in between when he gets a bit of a rest. Bird was hooked this week so I think Niko will be back in the halves with Bird at centre.
