    Think I'm gonna go Ponga and Hiku > Farah and Hopoate. I'm ranked 431st so may as well get another POD (got Milford last week) and getting rid of a popular player in Ponga. Hoppa has the potential to score 50s at FB so could be a decent shout. Farah should score just as good as Ponga for the rest of the season and is 100k cheaper, while Hoppa >>> Hiku by a mile.

    Smith (c)
    Fifita, Taupau
    Taumalolo, Arrow, Trbojevic
    SJ, DCE
    Hopoate, Aitken
    Tedesco, RTS, Isaako

    Cook, Farah, Martin, Milford
    Tolman, Fainu, Brimson, Mann

    3 trades, 69k left (RIP)

    My team isn't that great and my 18-21 players are a bit shit, probably explains my rank.

    I've noticed 3 things about A. Crichton this year.
    (a) he looks bigger physically &
    (b) he looks slower probably because of the weight gain &
    (c) he's lost his scooting ability due to (a) & (b)

    Am I imagining this.

    I would take a punt if he stays at FB but I think Abbey is only out one week with a concussion, so Oldfield the one to make way?

    Who's a better pick for a 3rd/4th WFB? Nene or Johnston? I already have Ponga, Turbo, RTS and Isaako in my WFB and AJ is the most expensive one I can afford and looks to be killing it

    If I had to pick between those two I would lean towards AJ who is up against the dogs, tigers, eels. And Ponga should be back by then. But if you are only looking for cover for 2/3 weeks I would just run with Isaako and save the trade

    This has been bought up earlier in the year. I haven't really watched Rabbitohs games but it hasn't really affected his work rate.

    Wacko is not the most accurate late mail, but like WL says, he spends a lot of time and effort in helping the fantasy community, and for that he should be commended. I follow Wacko on twitter because its easier than following 100 separate league accounts, and I trust him to retweet the important stuff.

    He used to post on sportal back in the day, but basically got driven off the site because too many posters felt the need to comment on his accuracy literally any time he posted anything

    Which was really unfair, as he is offering free advice: nobody made people pay attention or take any notice. It's like getting a tip for the horses, you're responsible for the risk yourself, aren't you?
