    Fainu still due a trade?

    Still a few weeks I think. He was still on crutches last week.

    Thanks mate

    I would go Mybe - Cook but I'm wary about losing Ponga and having Mann as back up

    so currently Stimson - Fainu and giving Arrow a rest

    Just saw something on FB saying Watson and Ponga both failed the captains run. Not sure if source was credible

    For those asking about Api Koroisau, pictured here on Saturday night still using crutches 5 weeks post foot fracture surgery. Still likely 3-4 weeks away at least from a return, some foot bones have poor blood supply so recovery can be prolonged

    This was 9 days ago, so not sure if I'd bring Fainu in tbh. The DT said he was out for the season...

    Who knows though, the Physio did say it could be longer.

    MBye to Fainu is tempting.  He will be as expensive as MBye in a couple of weeks.

    Thought process was Fainu provides a great interchange option and still allows me the cash to upgrade Mbye/kikau to anyone when Ponga is fully back and I don't need Mbye to cover

    Will you trade Fainu back out if you only get 2-3 games out of him? I'm guessing no.

    No but Koro might never return, only 5 rounds left in season bud

    Why risk bringing Api back or rushing him back when their season is done?

    Given you have 4 times the trades I do, and the other blokes team isn’t that fantastic, reckon you’re in with a shout

    Has there been any word on how TPJs hammy is progressing? Gambling him over MBye or Hopoate (currently playing Hopo) right now.

    6 games left. But yeah like NRLPhysio said his injury could keep him out longer, so he could miss the season, or he could be back in a few weeks, who knows.

    Presumably if he fails the captains run he's out right? if thats the case it appears to be not credible, well part of it anyway. Watson's out but Ponga remains in the 19.
