    Putting on my tin foil hat, maybe Barrett is preparing for Fainu to be dealt with regarding the court case. Didn't watch the game, but who did he get subbed for?. Api shouldn't be too far away anyway, right?

    Regardless, Fainu is not far away from being Fantasy irrelevant.
    Pretty sure he got subbed for Hokko. Word is API out for the year and Barrett has publicly said Fainu will play for the rest of the year.

    Yep - brought Tapine in a few weeks ago when fitzgibbon got suspended. nearly trade raged him when he got suspended after that.

    He's had a spot in my 17 for the last couple of weeks after sending Hodgson to 18th man.

    Nice. Good to see a legit pod.

    Went tapine to Farah after he got suspended, again. Can’t complain he did his job for me, but he 100% has the game to be a fantasy beast, just lacks the consistency. Will always be a pod I reckon

    Just a question if anyone saw Brimsons hit on Blake I think it was.

    I thought you had to at least make it look like a tackle rather than just chucking ya body at someone?

    If that was a forward on a forward in the middle of the field would it be viewed differently?

    I thought he used his arms in the tackle. Maybe not in the traditional sense of wrapping his arms around him, but in some level at least.

    At the very lowest level I'd say after watching it.

    I did like the pat on the back he got from Blake after it.

    PONGA MAY BE RESTED

    Nathan Brown is considering resting Kalyn Ponga from Saturday's Round 23 clash against Penrith.

    The fullback has been struggling to overcome an ankle injury and played the previous two games with his ankle heavily strapped.

    Ponga and Taumalolo both out might test some squads this week.

    Its hard to make up ground though at this point in the year. I've been hovering around the 1000-1500 tank for weeks now, having a relatively good week or poor week doesn't make much difference to my rank.

    Taupau was more of a precaution from what I remember.

    I'm thinking ARey to DCE or Turbo. With Ponga and Tolo out though, will have to play Holland. unless I trade Holland to Hayne or RTS. Can't afford Turbo from Holland. I just don't really trust ARey anymore after last week.
