    Jeez another curveball. Martin on the bench now.

    I was resigned to playing Brimson as 17th man, so chucked him at WFB for Rapana and discovered that I could turn Rapa in RFM.

    Now I need to rethink things again.

    Don't get too excited, lads and lasses - one of those links is incorrect, pretty much the only update we were all waiting on... we're still waiting!

    https://www.nrl.com/news/2018/06/12/round-15-nrl-team-lists/

    https://www.nrl.com/draw/nrl-premiership/2018/round-15/bulldogs-vs-titans/

    Again, before people get too excited - here are the two links. One shows Rhys Martin not making the 17, the match centre showing him on the bench and Toomaga cut from the 17.

    I think we're all used to inconsistency from the NRL but hopefully the incorrect one will be fixed soon and we'll know for sure.

    Martin is named for the ISP side and I put more faith in the team lists link than the match centre so I am still assuming he won't play.

    Yeah I always go by the team list article as opposed to the match centre so I’m taking it as he’s out. Hello Jurbo!

    I would bet $100 right now that he is in the 17, and will be a late switch to start on game day.

    Now that Mbye's exit is finalised, they can pay Martin's performance bonus (more than X nrl games clause) without exceeding the cap*.


    *still just a theory.

    I like you, MTB so I am not going to take $100 off you. Very Happy

    Dogs play NSW Cup at 1245pm tomorrow - so you'll know then that he isn't in reserve grade.

    If Martin Plays, I think ill reverse my Martin to McInnes trade.

    Mcinnes might score maybe 15-25 points more. BUt Martin will make 30-40k more I reckon. That cash will come in handy.

    Just do a points projection Radley v Jensen through to round 17 & that might help you with your decision.

    Both being used as cows. Depends how long Scott is out but think Jensen is the right one to keep. Thanks for the input.

    No need to get Mcinnes this week with high 50s be though of course he can go big. I'm getting him next week or 17

    I think I remember someone in the previous thread being pumped on the Mbye news because of this.

    @L-Jimmy wrote:On the basis of nothing at all, I'm going to interpret this as good news for Martin.

    Yeah, that's pretty insightful. Good call. Fap

    I'm fairly confident Martin plays 17 and I've just lost Mbye no way I'm selling my already low 17 stocks. People are going to struggle big time. There's places to be made that round
