    Arrow to Crichton

    OR

    Cody to Tolman to give better forward depth, possibly play Tolman in 17 ahead of Arrow

    OR

    Stay put, save trade. Possibly bring Lewis into 17 for Arrow

    On your last trade i would hold.

    Thanks to everyone for their trade advice. Think I'll hold, though @StuDogg this year I won't hold until Round 26...

    So I am bringing in T. Trbojevic for Mbye. Is Cotric a better option?

    I got Cotric about 3 rounds ago but I wish I hadn't. In fact I think it was the round Croker got injured. Anyway my answer is no to buying Cotric. At least last week Cotric was back at f/b but I feel it's going to take him a few games to adapt to the new role. There were signs he was getting to grips with it in the last quarter of the game as he got more involved.

    So when I got Cotric I thought well I only have Holland as my ctr/wfb cover so I need 2 backups & really Holland isn't going to score very well so I need a good scorer which will be Cotric because now he's at f/b & he will boss it.
    So in summary what a master stroke that was because now Holland is bossing it & Cotric is scoring crap haha. Instead of buying Cotric I could of got a good scoring forward.

    Ditto, was going to go Latrell, but bye and potential origin resting tipped me towards Cotric because of the extra games. That did not work out.

    I wouldn't rely too much on last week's score when deciding what to do with Cotric though as Canberra got smashed and not many opportunities for points. he should improve for the run home.

    Are you looking for a POD/punt?

    Macca could be a good go, can bust a 70+

    It seems Ponga is having trouble with his ankle as per nrl physio

    "Ponga missed training yesterday & was reportedly walking with a noticeable limp but no moon boot, as he continues to manage the ankle sprain he suffered a week ago at training. He will have to undergo intense treatment again this week to play on Friday."

    Tohu very tempting but Surgess would probably be my pick. Some bias though as I have him and none of the others.

    Thanks for the opinions lads.  I didn't mind the look of Macca last week actually and Vaughn has been awesome last two weeks too.  I don't think I want too much of a punt truthfully so really thinking Surgess or Gal.

    The next 5 games:
    Raiders = panthers (a), wests (h), roosters (h), souths (h), warriors (a) - playing 4 top 8 teams
    Manly = sharks (a), bulldogs (h), titans (h), wests (a), broncos (a) - playing 2 top 8 teams

    I feel Turbo has the better draw.

    Yep. Up against the team they're trying to knock out of the 8, it's a very important game for the Knights.

    If the Warriors get a win, I would not be surprised to see Ponga and his ankle rested a bit more once the Knights chances are gone.

    Turbo def looks better option than cotric. I had croker, aitken and cotric leading into td17. I mean it was good for literally one round, and been a thorn in my side ever since.

    Tturbo looks like he will score more points, raiders are terrible

    Coach N. Brown has publicly stated if Ponga is not 100% they won't play him as they don't want to risk a long term injury to their star player.
