    I've got 354k bank. Who would you sell to get Arrow = Kikau or JFH

    Kikau = b/e 50 & starting on the bench now but can go boom or bust. If he's on the bench he may not achieve his b/e this week.
    JFH = b/e 40 which seems about his scoring limit when he only plays 55-60 minutes. He is more consistent than Kikau but lacks attacking stats.

    Thanks.

    Surely JFH is due a try soon. Well that's what I'm hoping for anyway

    I am bringing in Fifita. Like I have to right? He did an interview saying he will play Origin 1 for free, but I don't think they pick him anyway. Any chance we find out concrete proof before next week?

    Also I am looking at cashout options. Who are the top long term cashout options? Preferably I want to cash out to a CTR/WFB.

    Yeah I'm leaning towards selling Kikau. Now mate the most important game of the season is coming up this week when our beloved Liverpool win the Champions League.

    What is he like longterm security wise. I could grab him, and he covers a decent amount. However I am thinking Matthew Wright. I save a bit more cash, and he is more versatile with the CTR/WFB and should have his position locked down in the team.

    Well he wont be playing Game 2 no matter what because he wants to play for Tonga and has declared that. So it makes sense they stick to their guns in that respect.

    I'll be doing 1 trade for sure:
    Kikau out - Arrow

    Leaves me with 225k bank:

    Cook (c)
    Fifita, Arrow
    Jurbo, Taumalolo, Crichton
    DCE, Maloney
    Mitchell, Isaako
    Tedesco, Ponga, Thompson

    C. Smith, Martin, JFH, Murray
    Su'a, Cogger, Capewell, Kennar

    I will use a 2nd trade if either:
    Maloney loses gk - will trade in Watson
    Capewell loses starting spot - will trade in Turbo

    I'm thinking Holland for the Doggies might be a decent option, has looked good off the bench and depends on how buggered Morris is. If he's named at centre and Morris is out for a couple months, I'll probably the punt.

    Gutted about Lamb, was my gap filler for SJ. Just found the news on here. But, luckily I also have Cogger lol. So could be worse. Might keep both for now.

    It's really depressing looking at WFB/CTR replacements right now. I have Holmes, Hiku and Thompson playing, and have $$ to upgrade them. Thompson is a trade but might as well hold for the bye now pale

    Going to post up my squad for this week and assume a best case scenario type deal. (Basically that Brown finally fucking returns to my team because Scott is out longterm now.) Post Trades.

    D. Cook
    J. Arrow, A. Fifita
    N. Brown, S. Burgess, R. Fataila-Mariner
    A. Reynolds, D. Cherry-Evans
    L. Mitchell, J. Dugan
    J. Tedesco, K. Ponga, M. Mbye

    C. Smith, C. Murray, R. Martin, J. Su'A

    V. Kikau, A. Brimson, J. Segeyaro, M. Wright

    My trades this week will be P. Hiku -> M. Wright & J. Fisher-Harris/V. Kikau -> A. Fifita. (Leaning towards JFH out).

    If 1 of Brown/RFM are out then I play Kikau. If both are out then I play Brimson as well.

    Didn't know Morris was out, with that the case I would definitely look at him over Wright. However Wright could play out the year which is more valuable to me, because I just want a guy who can plug in for a week when Dugan is injured.

    That backline isn't great but it is manageable to be honest. I have Hiku and I am trading him only because I have Dugan & Latrell and need to get Fifita. But from the start of the season Hiku has been a pseudo keeper for me in the CTR's as he does enough to warrant it.

    Wouldn't be surprised to see Hiku dropped this week BTW. Gerard Beale was pretty good last week, and I can't see Kata being dropped. He might be benched.

    Looking at your team makes me feel sad about my own. You have Fifita, Taumalolo and J. Trbojevic. All guys I desperately want in my squad. Then Crichton someone else I really wouldn't mind having.

    Maloney's BE is 39 so he could start losing cash any day now and you will need another HLF to help minimise the points loss (However I am bad and said to trade him last week). I am not sold on Watson as a long term option, but he is scoring well at the moment so is worth running with.

    Capewell has a lower BE but as you said could be on the bench and could lose some cash. Either way it looks like you may take a cash hit.

    So the real question is, how much more does T. Trbojevic score than Thompson and how much more does Watson score than Maloney. (Which I have no idea how to predict because I totally ballsed up the Maloney thing last week.)

    Maloneys average with Cleary 19 (The -4 in Round 1 hurts. Removing that it is 29)
    Watson's average without Pearce 56
    Thompson's average is 37
    T. Trbojevic's average is 46.

    The Maloney to Watson trade looks a lot better on paper, but I was completely wrong about Maloney scoring 35 points or less last week.

    They had Gelling on the bench for the longest time and Beale was on the bench often for the Sharks. I could see him ending up there again.
