    Yeah I think Doui's a good chance of getting CTR (provided he is actually named there next week and again the following).

    After Rd 18 they should update positions, and assuming he's named CTR next week, he'll have played 3 and be named there again for Rd 19.

    Seems likely he'd rack up a few games there if named twice given GI's injury length.

    Oh shit, I thought they get updated before round 18.

    Actually I think I'll get Lewis instead of Luci Leilua as with 5 trades left after Farah in next week would be good to have 1 last cash builder

    Had to double check.. not to rely on FailHub's official rules/whats new section, but..

    "Updating Player Positions
    In 2018 there will be three set periods when player positions are added: End R6, end R12 and end R18. As usual new players will be added prior to launch and after they are named in official team lists."

    Should be after the round has completed. Pretty sure it was after Rds 6 and 12.

    Trying to figure out if Ponga is worth trading out. Lets say he is back in Rd20.

    Ponga AVG 53 x 6 = 318, Holland AVG 30* x 3 = 90, Total = 408 points and a trade saved.
    Cotric AVG 40 x 9 = 360 and a trade used.
    RTS AVG 42 x 9 = 378 and a trade used.

    Seems smart to hold Ponga and cover with Holland (used a rough avg score for a CTR)

    Even if the averages are up and down by 5 points then it still seems a good idea to keep Ponga on the bench and cover him.

    I'd rather save and look at final 2 trade play of turning a 17th man into a Fifi, Crichton or similar upgrade

    If enough people lobby Lone Scout I'm sure Doueihi will get DPP. The reason why they backed away from the strict '3 game naming in position X = DPP' thinking was to account for all of past, current and future prospects/factors. I personally think this is a prime example of all 3 of those applying and he should get dual position (I don't own him)

    They should start removing DPP from players as well. If you have DPP but are never (mostly) named in that position. Remove it.

    Cotric is a good example.

    I wouldn't waste 2 trades on Ponga in and out when there's better strategies. Ponga is worth having when back so no sell

    The only hiccup is as I said if Hunt gets the centre spot over Doueihi.

    Would cause too many issues.
    What happens for teams that have him in the centres and have no centre back-up?
    The system just isn't set up to deal with it.

    What happens when they remove it and then a week later he plays in the centres? Does he not get it back for another six rounds?

    I think Doueihi will get DPP (assuming he actually plays centre with Inglis out)
    He's played there before and is clearly someone considered for selection at centre and not just a stop gap fill-in

    If Inglis is out for 6 weeks that will only help Doueihi's cause.

    I don't know if you are serious or not, but if somebody only has 2 CTRs, and no trades left, you can't then reduce them to 1 CTR and an invalid team

    RTS or Cotric. I think Cotric with only Latrell Holland (Doueihi if gets DPP after 18) at CTR and Mbye Teddy (Ponga) at WFB
