    I'm ready to pop my @mearcats cherry. I think i'll still grab Fainu as a max cashout but not sure which way to go after that.

    Thinking of playing Hiku in my WFB and Tuala in my centres since it's such a crapshoot. Thoughts were Rapana and Martin to Fainu and SJ. This would push DCE to the bench and Murray to 18th man.

    Any help would be great.

    Cook
    Arrow, Fifi
    Turbo, Lolo, Crichton
    Cleary, DCE
    Aitken, Tuala
    Ted, Ponga, hiku

    Smith, Surgess, Tohu, Murray
    Brimson, Hetherington, Rapana, Martin

    CHEERS!


    I been waiting for a chance to get at you no.8! Hahahaha. But for reals, the team looks good mate. Honestly, I don't have a problem with playing Tuala at all, I think he is dece, a solid ctr option and if he can keep the spot permanently he'll go ok. Like you've already said, the position is a crapshot so just play what you have mate. As for Hiku, surprised you still have him but that may very weel work out in your favor this week with the rumours hat RTS ain't yet fit and may miss another week. This would presumably see Hiku shift to the back again and he goes ok there. Also ok with that move for the week.

    I hear what you are saying regarding Fainu as a max cash out but would it not make more sense to bring in Brown (L) who is the same price and probably the more likely candidate? At least he'll play. Of course, if it's for the purposes of loopholing then go for Fainu although I think there's other teams that have better draws for looping than the Sea Eagles.

    As for your team mate, I know you are attached to Murray (rightly so, kid is a gun) but I think your love is detrimental to your team currently. I can get on board with Rapa being ousted with his injury but I would definitely be holding Martin for at least another week or two to see what the program there is at the doggies. He is a keeper basically if back into the side and still has money to make. I can get on board with SJ in at the expense of Murray but Martin makes it a little less black and white.

    The rest of it is gold. Nice bench, good depth and coverage... looking tight IMO mate.

    Think I will just go the 2 trades this week until I get more news on Martin
    Hunt seems a great value swap for and injured Korisau and allows me to bring Brown in for Murray

    Smith (c)
    Fifita Taupau
    Crichton Taumalolo Harris
    DCE Hunt
    Marsters Mitchell
    Tedesco Ponga Fonua

    Cook Brown Arrow Surgess

    So thoughts on the following.

    Murray -> Harris
    Martin -> McInnes
    $14k to upgrade Su'A

    or

    Murray -> RFM
    Martin -> James
    Su'a -> Harris


    or

    Murray -> RFM
    Martin -> Harris
    Su'a -> McInnes

    If Mearcats is doing team reviews, thoughts on this steaming pile of shiii...

    C. Smith
    A. Fifita, J. Arrow
    J. Taumalolo, S. Burgess, N. Brown
    A. Reynolds, D. Cherry-Evans
    L. Mitchell, E. Aitken
    K. Ponga, J. Tedesco, M. Mbye

    C. Cook, J. Su'a, C. Murray, R. Martin

    A. Brimson, T. Hodkinson, J. Segeyaro, L. Brown

    I am thinking the trades I mentioned above and Brimson to a cashout, most likely Wright due to the DPP.

    Two great trades mate, though both could be in danger of missing out after the Denver test (though I highly doubt it). The only other way I would go is to look at James or NuBrown. I assume you have trade plans in mind for Watson? Sitting pretty dece though mate. Nothing to stress about there, that's for sure.

    Hi Mercats, I posted my team back on the last page. Am looking to now go;
    Koro --> SJ
    Cogger --> Mann
    Murray --> NBrown

    Sound? Leaves me with 10 trades, so feel it is worth it. Other option for NBrown is Tohu, can't afford McInner. OR Mahoney instead of Mann. Any thoughts appreciated bud. Thanks in advance

    Banking on either Fainu getting allowed this week or next or just use him as a 212K nuffy loop

    Figured I can cover that RD if both are out. Those guys as opposed to bringing in SJ you reckon?
