    Hell no. Turbo puts up great scores even when they're getting pummeled.

    Might have to sit on bringing Ponga back in till we hear more news

    I read a few comments last night directed at Danseels that I thought were a bit unfair. Basically criticizing him because he posts a lot & changes his mind quite a bit. I used to be exactly the same as him when I would post 100 trade combinations a day when I first started playing fantasy. If you read this Danseels I think you should post as much as you like & don't worry if people don't like it.

    That was regarding his hammy though.

    He wasn't 100% last week and still played. He'll be closer to 100% this week than he was last week.

    Even as a ponga owner, I wouldn’t mind if he was out, just to shake things up a bit. Him being in, helps everyone, him being out fucks a lot of people, and provides more POD options.

    Didn’t look like there was much in it to be fair. I wish I had the luxury of even thinking about trade options.

    Surgess
    Kikau
    Macca
    Gallen
    Vaughn
    Matterson
    Friend
    JDB
    Alvaro
    Harris

    So many options plus more I havent listed. I think Ive narrowed it down to Surgess or Gal.

    Surgess or Tohu. I have Surgess as my 18th man but i brought him in while Tohu was injured. With both available to you its a coin flip but i would probably still pick Surgess.

    With 4 trades left and h2h becoming close battles i'm leaning towards trading cotric to Ferguson or Marsters. Would you do it and if so which one? Or should i look to upgrade elsewhere?

    Current team:
    Cook(c)
    Fifita Taupau
    Taumalolo Jurbo Martin
    DCE Arey
    Mitchell Cotric
    Ponga Teddy Turbo

    Smith Farah Surgess SJ

    Arrow Lewis Isaako Olive

    Now that i've written it down maybe i should hold in case arrow doesnt come good so i then have spare trade for other injuries.

    3 trades left, looking to make 1 this week to get rid of people I can see going downhill over the next few weeks and saving 2 for injuries.

    Thinking of going Papali'i > Cleary, T.Turbo or Hess. Leaning towards Cleary now that he has the goal-kicking back, but tough to look past Tommy. Any thoughts on this? Also open to getting rid of Isaako but that leaves my CTR backup non-existent.

    Current team:
    Smith (c)
    Surgess James
    Taumalolo Papalii Martin
    Moses SJ
    Cotric Marsters
    Teddy RTS Isaako

    Farah Guerra Papali'i Niukore

    I would definitely rather people posting here a lot rather than not at all!

    As long as you're not being abusive or discriminating against anyone or any group, post for your life!

    It was nothing major & the posts weren't mean or anything but I've noticed Danseels hasn't posted anything today so I wouldn't want him scared away.

    I apologise to him and everyone if my comment contributed to this.  I think the point was asking multiple times is fine, but sometimes helping others out with their own questions goes a long way too.
