    I am quit interested in Hipgrave. Kid is a beast and is great to watch him play. Score was hampered by a lot of negatives (-18) last week, but he could well be a keeper if he tones that down. Or at least a great DPP 18th man. All assuming he keeps the edge spot that is.
    So cheap still that I think I can afford to give him one more week and pickup round 14 if he guns it. Shouldn't miss a game from then on.

    @Liverpool_Bulldog so would you not bring Fifita in this week? If I don't get him now, I probably won't until his price settles back to 900ish

    Im an MBye owner but I fully expect him to lose his goal kicking.

    I have Fifita already so my view is slightly different.

    I think he may be an exception to the rule though

    Cook
    Fifita, JFH
    Taumalolo, Murray, RFM
    DCE, Reynolds
    Mitchell, Dugan
    Teddy, Ponga, Fonua

    Smith, Su'a, Martin, Kikau


    Maloney, Havili, Thompson, Isaako.

    Any advice on starting 17 would be appreciated.

    My 2 cents, see edits above ^^

    Havili > Harris is a pretty tempting little trade this week.

    Initially, I had traded out JFH (to Taupau).

    Now that I'm mulling over my 17 for the week, I'm considering playing Fonua instead of Maloney (moving Mbye up into halves).

    Now, If I'm going to leave him out of my 17 anyway, shouldn't I just trade him out now, instead of JFH?

    I'm thinking Maloney verse the Dragons may struggle while at the same time Cleary takes on more of the ball. Fonua could rack up some TB's verse the Doggies.
