    796 all done, pretty much every gun that decided to have a crap game or take the week off was in my team... thought last years ranking was a return to form, but I think I’m starting to realise that was actually an anomaly and I really am shithouse at this game

    Would Fonua be against Leipana's side? With Rapana out they might be weaker?
    I thought Fonua was good today. Very busy and a decentish score without a try. I think I'd play Fonua.

    Good point mate. I agree Fonua played well. Those hard yards & hit ups he made early in the game were keeping Wests in the game. It was a pity Brooks never gave him any ball but chose to kick instead.

    I'd probably play fonua @ WL. I think there will be plenty of points on offer in that game. He's busy and always doing the hard hit ups coming out our end

    Looking at trade for next week I'm thinking I'll grab SJ. Was waiting for him to go back to dominating kick metres so he has a solid base. Nathan Brown is hard to pass up aswell. Probably do something like Arey>SJ and Fitzgibbon>Brown

    Bad luck mate. You're not shithouse because a lot of this game is luck & timing. There's usually a couple of rounds each season where our teams score shit. But you'll be sweet bro because round 15 will come around soon enough & you'll be right back into it.

    That's a yes from me MS. Both SJ & N. Brown had brilliant games. If R. James stays at prop he'll score 60+ because he plays big minutes & has all the skills.

    Probably no trade for me unless I can find a cashout for Soro.

    Its gotta be like 80% luck/timing. I was 4k short of going barnett to tturbo so I just banked the trade and decide to play tuala, who scores a try with 30 seconds left on the clock while barnett scores 65 because buhrer does his acl. all because of 4k

    @Fortitude how was the fishing?

    Arrow has shown he is not as effective backing up after origin so he'll be a risky option during this period. He's had a dud score so I'm guessing his price will end up low 700s soon which will be a score.

    None of the Rabbitohs Origin players backed up :/

    @Bullbender Not sure if I remember correctly if you're the one that topped out at 800 this week but if you are, thats a decent score considering the trash you got dished up. My trash scores with dud players are low 700s :/

    Fake news, apparently. Someone posted a few pages back a convo someone had with Rhyse where he said he was never late to training. But dropped regardless. Who knows if it was the media or someone from the club who starterd the rumour, but not good news for his long term job security.

    You'll hit 900 easy mate & hopefully the gun Mbye turns up tomorrow.

    Thanks mate.  900 is the goal, but I really hope MBye comes out swinging tomorrow.  been frustrating to own him.  Had no Cook or Crichton either so not bad.

    PS.  I'd play Fonua also.  Tualua would have scored 20 without that junk try at the end.

    ...or potentially Martin himself lying about it, maybe not wanting someone to know he was dropped for being late to training?

    Or that. I would much prefer that he was dropped for a good reason.
