    Anyone see a trade I can do to help my team out? I have 3 left with 69k left.

    Cook
    Fifita, Taupau
    Taumalolo, Trbojevic, Arrow
    Milford, DCE
    Aitken, Isaako
    Tedesco, RTS, Hopoate

    Smith, Farah, Martin, SJ
    Fainu, Tolman, Brimson, Mann

    Is Brimson worth downgrading now to someone like Clifford/Garner and banking the 200k for my last two trades?

    "We'll make a decision on those two over the next 24 hours," coach Stephen Kearney said. "We fly tomorrow so it will have to be made before we get on the plane."

    Luke did not take part in training. Tohu no heavy contact.

    Thats how I interpreted the Kearney interview the other day.

    Brimson is a pretty good EMG player, you could go Mann instead but that's only 100K saved. Everything else looks pretty nice mate.

    Just a gut feeling I have been having all day but i feel like Milford is set for a MASSIVE game tonight! I feel as though he will be everywhere tonight, running the ball and putting in a kicking clinic.

    Just a gut feel.

    God fucking damn it. He hurt his leg twice last week so maybe it's still troubling him. That could mean he scores a 30 instead of a 40 Mad

    I feel I can't trade Brimson because he covers two positions, and Mann is someone I do not want to play even though he covers the same positions. I am considering Mann > Garner so hard to get that extra 100k for my last two trades to have 170k ITB.

    It looked pretty nasty. I'm surprised he even finished the game really.

    LATEST - @robbiefarah & @DNofoaluma both trained at @WestsTigers captain’s run today - Robbie missed Wednesday’s session. Ivan Cleary is confident both will be cleared to face @NRL_Bulldogs tomorrow night. Luke Garner has already passed the relevant testing #NRLBulldogsTigers

    Geez Garner is tempting. Surely Rochow and McQueen (if he comes into the side at any stage) don't start over this kid after how good he was last week?

    I think after last week it's his spot to lose. Tempting to get him in for Mann too, but think I'd prefer the red dot.

    Can't see him losing his spot after last week's performance. Only way he does if he gets injured. Lookkng at brining him in for Holland.

    He's on the bench.  He's not playing for me though, would also be a cashout.  But just not sure if I need it or worth the trade.  Still thinking a red dot could be more valuable, but I like potential players also so if he keeps his spot, he's a great EMG.

    I would rather he not be playing. I'm not sure making 100k on Mann > Garner is worth one of my last 3 trades tbh. If it was for Brimson then probably yes but 100k doesn't seem worth it.

    Broncos have jumped into 1.68 (from 1.77) at Sportsbet just recently so I assume Graham is probably out.. they seem to know before the general public. Unless there is another big out..

    I only just read the late mail on the Broncs/Sharks on nrl.com:

    Sharks: Edrick Lee is out for the Sharks, with Sosaia Feki named to start on the wing in jersey No.20. Wade Graham is still in the squad despite battling a groin injury. Graham's partner Karianne is also expecting the birth of their first child over the coming days with the Sharks back-rower monitoring the situation. Luke Lewis has overcome a calf injury and will play. Aaron Gray also drops out of Shane Flanagan's squad along with Lee.

    Makes me think that Wade Graham is just sitting staring between his missus' legs and waiting...

    Same.  If Mann wasn't playing it would be perfect.  I think cashing him out for a 212K red dot would be worth it for the looping possibilities for the last 6 weeks, but I have 4 trades and also don't really think the 100K is worth it to get Garner in perhaps.  Saying that he could become a viable bench player if he continues to score as well as he did last week.

    If you were looking at Brimson, you could even possibly wait a week if need be.  You'd lose a bit of coin but another week and no injuries helps and you can see if he is really worth bringing in. I just think of the likes of Soro. Killed it in his first game was was underwhelming the next few. I'd really like to see if he backs it up, but with potential coin to be saved, it might be too late next week.

    He should just call Barry Hall to come and keep an eye on her while he comes to Brisbane and plays.
