    This, I have been waiting for this day to come.. Ha! He's looked good this year, I can't understand why he's on the bench. I guess he offers spark, but not sure why he isn't there instead of Olive. Hoppa could be an option I guess. Holland could even play Fullback.

    Farah to the Tigers is LOL, makes sense on paper but little else. Would 100% buy though Surprised

    Source says that Cowboys have offered Val Holmes a big money contract that Sharks may not be able to match

    I also would love to think its two brothers or father son that are battling it out.
    Did my best @SI impression and it looks like they're both from Newcastle so fair chance.

    Impressive young Padwan Very Happy

    Pete's Punishers has been around for about a decade I reckon. Was right up in the rankings a couple of years in the old DT.

    I also wonder if Shakes Crushers is Shakes Crusaders from the old DT days? That team was almost always ranked very high as well.

    Or are they pushing the Sharks to stretch so they can't afford the forward that the Cowboys are actually after.

    I suppose you poolhop as well?

    I'm just being facetious. I'm running only one team and really cant be bothered to do anything more than that Very Happy

    BUT, I'm not seeing in the rules where it says you cant run more than one team. Shrug

    Edit, I've just emailed the 'contact us' to check if I can run 100 teams next season. Might troll them a bit with some email ping pong

    I don't think the Sharks would stretch much if at all for him. Flanno doesn't seem to rate him as much as others.

    It might not be there anymore. It's not a rule that ever bothered me but I'd be devasted if I won only to have it taken off me later.

    I'm with Flanno. But it's all a game when it omes to the cap

    Thinking of taking Murray 28pts instead of Olive or Katoa. Titans not giving up lot of points to CTRs and Broncos not giving away many points to wingers

    I wouldn't consider it. Anyone can go 50+ on their day and I'd rather risk a 16 from Katoa or Olive than lock in a 28.

    I'm not saying he should but I banked a 26 last week when I had a chance of poolhoping Olive, so in that instance it worked for me

    Id still risk it. Katoa got 24 last week anyway and did nothing, and Olive could do turn up against his old club.

    I have more of an issue with people running multiple teams than poolhopping to be honest.

    Fair enough if second team is an experiment in some way eg all cows.

    I would also risk it. Chance of a great score vs losing a few points.
