    He'd be straight into 90% of teams if it happened.

    Would seem a crazy thing for Souths to do. They're going for the whole lot this year and Farah is great insurance for Cook. If Cook goes down and Farah's not there their GF ambitions are fucked.

    Murray, Clarke or Douehie could handle hooker and have done before. Farah is dead wood and will rot away at the Bears. Best move for both parties.

    Traded Murray to Harris, fingers crossed.

    I made that trade like most and would consider it a win already. Can't help bad luck if it happens.

    Expect Harris to score 20+ this week over Murray, another 50+ in Rd 17 and probably 15-20 most other weeks Murray's on the bench.

    No doubt Murray will hit some 50-60s before seasons end, but not worth the gamble of holding any longer.

    Elijah Taylor can "handle" hooker too. Would expect any team would much rather have Farah if they had the choice.

    Still, it makes sense for Robbie.

    I had high hope for the Eels after the first half... then it all went South Sad

    Cook & Brown last night, traded Murray for SJ

    I had planned to make CS9 captain, but with the multiple rollbacks of the team I ended up with the C on Tlolo. Hopefully that will work out ok.

    Cook really is key to their year. Farah played well in his absence but isn't Cook.

    I would say if Cook goes then so do Souths chances. Having Robbie or not wouldn't change that though he would bring a lot of experience in the finals.

    A-Rey standing up to prop up Crichton's pathetic 37 points. I'll be a happier if they give Crichton's ta which is probably a 50/50 call.

    Season low tackle count for Crichton last night with only 20, was averaging 36 prior. 13 tries worth of standing around didn't help.

    Gave him less opportunities to miss tackles too though, only 1 recorded and misses more on average, but in the same vein he only had 1 TB and averages 3.

    Add the extra 16 tackles on and he goes 50+.

    Given that 13 tries were scored and 12 try assists were given, Crichton was pretty screwed to be the only one not given.

    I don't really give that much of a shit about the fantasy points, but I honestly don't know how you couldn't credit Crichton with that as a try assist. It is baffling. He put the bloke through the hole, who basically then just had to put the foot down to score the try.. it is literally the definition of a try assist.

    If they gave it to Gal I would call that one too.  Had a feeling they wouldn't. Would have made his score look a lot more respectable.

    A quick look at hopo's (547k) stats at FB show he averages just under 40, with scores ranging from 11 to 79. Has ctr/wfb status, may be an alternative to aitken and is a genuine pod for now at 2.1% ownership.

    Such a kick in the nuts for round 17.
