    I was sick of playing the minutes roulette with Ricky. Long term its still a solid trade

    That was my reasoning too. Actually I sold him in round 5 (he actually scored 46 not 50+). After the first 4 rounds where the highest minute game was 56 mins he went on to play 78 & 71 minutes in rounds 5 & 6.

    The thing with Taumalolo is that he's a boom/bust type of player. He could very well come out in round 13 & go large. New buyers got him in a bust week.

    My 2 new recruits play today & against eachother - Arrow & Matterson. I expect a dominant Roosters performance with Matterson getting a try & Arrow to make 40+ tackles.

    Just needs to check his bank account if he wants to smile

    I'll be hoping for the exact same mate. Teddy to push his origin claims with a try aswell.

    While we're giving out tries Brimson can put Arrow through a hole late in the game.

    Round 13 team so far:
    Cook (origin certainty), Fifita (origin maybe), Taumalolo, Crichton (origin maybe), DCE (origin maybe), Matterson, Mitchell (origin maybe), Kennar , Ponga (origin maybe), C. Thompson, C. Murray, Cogger, Capewell, Tedesco (origin certainty)

    So I'll lose Cook & Tedesco & maybe Fifita, Crichton, DCE, Mitchell, Ponga.

    Havili lost two tacklebreaks and downdated by 6 overnight.
    How can they get it so wrong where they think he's made 3 TBs initially but turns out he only made 1?
    Maybe confusing him with another player at the time?

    I was just reading sc addicts & there are some reports that Matterson could be out today. This rumour started as he wasn't spotted at the captains run yesterday. Nothing confirmed so just wait to team lists.

    I think they confused him with another player. Pretty sure during live play he was credited with them in the first couple of mins of the second half but not sure he had a run.

    Was just about to tell you that. Are you able to reverse trade?

    Smith was on 98 before updates. Pretty sure TMM went up and Morgan lost a few.

    Cheers DK but I haven't made any trades yet. I was going to trade before the game.

    I love Fantasy players. If scores don't update we question the thoroughness of the updates. If they update too much we question the accuracy of the scores.

    If Matterson is out then I suppose A-Rey is the next cab off the rank.

    I never question the updates. Only the downdates.

    For anyone here that plays sc you know the true agony of score updates/downgrades. Scores can change very dramatically. At least in fantasy there's not massive score changes like sc.

    Also in SC, scores get updated multiple times over the weekend. The reviewers are very indecisive (or just cave to the complaints of fantasy coaches)

    The Matterson news would be a blow if true, my current HLF cover Brimson won't come close to his potential scores, but I am sure some unlucky players out there have no cover at all.

    Matterson and Taumalolo- The two biggest banes of my fantasy team of late.
    I bought them in close succession too, Matterson round 9 and Lolo round 10- both at peak price
    Say what you will about averages and things evening out, a month of mediocre scores from your two new "guns" feels like a knife in through the cockles of your heart.

    Maybe even below the cockles, maybe in the sub-cockle area.

    If Matterson is out (who I have), does that mean the NRL’s handsomest footballer plays 2nd row? I own him too Beating Heart
