    At least it's still a net gain.

    Whats the chance Fainu comes in in the future weeks once they sort something out (ie. Upgrade his contract). For me, having him is the difference between buying McInnes and SJ rather than Harris and the former is so much jucier

    So...I did the obvious Fainu trade like everyone else.

    If I keep it there is the trade still going to work? Or are Failhub going to reverse it on me since he was only added to the system when it was announced he was playing
    I know I won't get any points for him but as a strict max cashout and red dot I'm not too stressed. (As long as it sticks...)

    Unfortunate for those who need the cash out this round.

    I have managed to reshuffle my trades so I can bring him in if he manages to play (straight swap for Gosieski).

    The trade I'm letting go through to the keeper is Thompson ---> Aitken. I fall short by about $40k.
    Thompson back at fullback, should at least hopefully score a bit better between now and round 17.

    Fingers crossed.

    He's in the system, he's not going anywhere even if he never gets near the field.

    I think the fact that they named him to start and then appealed the initial decision means they want him there and will keep pursuing it.
    I honestly think the NRL will cave before match and he'll play.

    On the basis of nothing at all, I'm going to interpret this as good news for Martin.

    Fifa World Cup fantasy league for any last minute fantasy teams

    https://fantasy.fifa.com/en/home

    league code: D1APBAGZ

    Warning for people who hate filthy cheaters: the rules of this game allow loopholing captains (in fact if you want to take it seriously, loopholing is essential)

    someone (Trajan?) set up a league for the VSDT version - if they report the league code I'll join that

    I have the same plan. I've made three trades. The fourth will also be Gosi -> Fainu if he ends up playing.

    Bring SJ in this week for Koroisau using 2 trades to get him or play Cogger the next two weeks and get SJ prior to round 17? I really don't want anyone else besides SJ.

    BUMP

    Think the smart option is to trade Murray and Lane to Hetherington and Brown and then wait to see on Martin as they play before Manly. If he is out he becomes JTurbo. Sound good?

    F it. Ive decided to max trade this week.

    Havili > Fainu
    Arey > SJ
    Murray > Tapine
    Martin > Mcinnes

    If Martin plays, ill reverse the last trade for a juicy pay rise.

    Fainu playing will just be a bonus. leaves me with a bit in the bank to upgrade Taps after rd 17 and then upgrade Fonua to a better 18thman
