    Storm also named 2 more halves on the extended bench - Scott Drinkwater and Lachlan Lam

    Lachlan Lam (son of Adrian) was a Roosters player at the start of the year. has he made a mid-year switch to the Storm or is it a different layer with the same name?

    Ended up (so far) on this team for the round:

    Smith(c)

    Martin
    Johnson, Lewis
    Aitken, Holland
    RTS, Brimson

    McInnes

    5 trades for the remaining rounds. Feel like it's gonna be tight.

    Sua is a tricky one. Could easily be a late omission, ugh. Hoping I can hold though

    Scott Drinkwater looks great in the QRL. Could be a gun in the making in a couple of years.

    Adrian's son still appears in the Rorters team line up on their home page. Could just be a NRL.com howler

    8.Scott
    9.Granville
    10.Maclean
    11.Cooper
    12.Hess
    13.Tolo

    16.Lowe
    17.Hampton/Fensom

    Jensen, Bolty, Maclean and Scott to share forward minutes
    Lowe, Fensom, Tolo to share edge minutes?

    Smith (McInnis)
    Kikau
    Martin
    SJ, Milford (Lewis)
    Holland, Scott
    RTS, Brimson

    Hoping for 500 and a small bump in rank.

    Gambling on 506k being enough to single trade Brimson to Cook next week. AJ would need to score low 30s for this to happen, otherwise would have to burn another of my 3 remaining post-17 trades. Could guarantee getting Cook by cashing out to Luai rather than Lewis but with so few trades think would rather have a reserve who is playing and can fill in for a short injury rather than a non-player.

    That could backfire because if Su'a does play he could easily score 45-50 so you'd be shooting yourself in the foot.

    As someone who likes to read between lines, opacic is named for redcliffe, which is odd. The only outside back in our 14 to 21 is staggs, but then i cant see who else would cover for Turpin, as i doubt he plays 80. Glenn could shift in to hooker i suppose.

    Edit: ignore this. seems its a typo.

    @white lightning that’s true but it allows me to bring in Aitken this week who is a final 17 player whereas Sua is not

      Current date/time is 23/7/2018, 2:03 pm
