    Definitely an upgrade as far as Im concerned but I think you should probably hold the trade mate.  A trade like that can be done in like the second last round IMO.

    How many trades did you have? Thought you had one.

    @wolfking I’ve got 2 at the moment mate,at the moment I’m just tossing up whether to go Arrow or Mbye to Ponga. Thinking I’ll go Arrow as Mbye gives me cover for WFB. Only weak point in my team would be choosing between Isaako and Mbye for the last WFB spot every week

    He's marking Kata who likes tackling thin air so Aitken will destroy him on the back of the Dragon's dominating. I think I'll even play Holland over RTS.

    I would go MBye, Isaako I think is fine to run but then yes, it does affect your cover.  Arrow I still think will bounce back but if his price drops more then he might not be as valuable to you in coming weeks.  If going Arrow improves your balance then it might be worth it.

    Also, sorry for mentioning looping.

    Something is drawing me to Gallen.  Besides that one game of 22 where he was ill, he's been pumping out big scores.

    @wolfking yeah I have no doubts that Arrow will turn it around as well,just don’t want him sitting there losing coin when I can use him to bring in Ponga. And then if no injuries strike I will use my last trade with 2 weeks to go to turn Isaako into Turbo or James into Taupau. Thanks for your advice bro

    Was determined to turf RTS for Ponga, but, trading Turbo for Ponga also let's me turn Papalii into McInnes which is very tempting.

    RTS and McInnes

    Or

    Turbo and James/Crichton/Brown

    Think McInnes wins me over.

    Too early to use my last trade to go Arrow to McInnes?

    If it was round 23 instead of Round 21 I would pull the trigger but 4 rounds with 0 trades is a scary prospect.
    I do have backup for every position but none of these are guns.
    I am also considering just waiting for the results of Fainu's court date after this round and picking him up for a Lewis/Brimson type, which allows me to keep Arrow as 18th man in case he improves.

    Shit, 5 new immortals announced tonight. What a twist.

    13 Immortals. Anybody else besides me think that the ever increasing number actually dilutes the achievement?

    I feel the same way about the Wally Lewis statue at Lang Park. It somehow became less special when they started putting other statues in. They ruined it.

    This was my theory last week. I'm not sure I can have the same faith this week, especially when I have Surgess as a pretty decent backup.
    But CK is selling him and telling others to do the same, which is usually the point that players bring back their good scores.
