    Getting DPP with centre would just make me burst with excitement.

    Actually, surely he's the first to fill in for Inglis? Seibold might actually put Hunt in first and keep Doueihi as the bench backup. You'd think he's smarter than that though and reward a player like him with the starting gig first. Actually, Doueihi to centre and Hunt on the bench seems likely. Hunt has been that bench utility a couple of times before this year I think.

    Gosi -> Leilua (or other cashout looper)
    Fonua -> Aitken
    Harris -> RTS
    Friend -> Lewis

    Purely on Storm having a field day

    Storm's team is really weak. No Slater, Munster, Kaufusi, JBrom, Finucane, Glasby, Chambers, JAC. Can't see any field day happening.

    Yeah, sure the Dragons are weakened as well but five first-teamers out rather than eight... it's the weakest on-paper Storm team I can remember seeing for years and years. Don't know what it'll all mean for Smith and McInnis, tbh... Smith should go ok no matter what the game texture but half-tempted to captain SJ.

    I'm with Rhino, that Storm team is just as bad as the dragons without all the origin players

    full strength Dragons backline minus Bunt vs Storm missing 4 starters

    Essentially Storm pack vs dragons backs

    FWIW I'm 100% captaining SJ. I think Smith will understandably be the best option but it's a good round to go against the grain I think

    Most of the Storm players missing are Qld'ers anyway, so they're not exactly quality footballers they have to do without.

    Meanwhile Dragons have lost premium players JDB, Vaughan, Frizell and Tariq Sims. Not even Hunt missing can make up for that.

    Not sure what to do with cleary. SJ is coming in this week and it'll leave me with - sj, dce, cleary, Lewis. Think I need to dump one of cleary/dce this week and leaning towards cleary.

    Max trading has got me to 13 for the round.
    5 trades remain and $284K
    13 players are decent with only Brimson and maybe TPJ as the doubtful scorers.

    He said Sua was unavailable for selection. Im not entirely sure of the context. It makes no sense that Sua would have actually been picked though.

    The broncos also usually dont play silly buggers re team list.

    Christchurch - that's in QLD

    Assuming Douiehi gets the full time CTR gig - what do we expect from him moving forward? - scored 22 and 43 (with a try) in Rounds 12 and 14 playing at Centre. Would you play him or hold or cash generation?

    I'm leaning towards cashing him out this round.

    If in doubt do nothing. Trust your gut if you have to make any borderline calls.

    Yes but for a player just go to the qrl site -> players link -> find the player. Has their full match stats there.
