Our team as currently setup is
Murray Tamualolo(c) Taupau
Ponga Tedesco CNK
So for origin backups - pre any trades
Rein is set to play - I assume if we trade him out it will be for someone else who plays.
Havili is 19th man, but currently set to play as Young (suspended) and Brittain (outside top 17 for now) are ahead of him.
Dearden is in our 17. We can swap him for Sivo via Ponga DPP if we wish (and Ponga backs up)
If Brittain plays, we get his score
If Brittain doesn't play we get Havili's score
If Ponga or Teddy doesn't backup we get Sivo
If Ponga and Teddy both skip R13 we play 1 short
If Murray doesn't backup, we get Havili (or if Havili is already in, we get Xerri)
This includes Young as 17th man, we could very well trade Young out, but if Cook doesn't backup we may want to hold him for a week as potential loop for Brittain.
So given that trades may change based on who does/doesn't backup (especially Ponga/Teddy) let's work on an idea of trades
I think we want to trade Rein. Titans play late, so hard to wait on news of if Peats is going to start, bench, miss out altogether. And if we are doing Rein to McInnes as I suspect will be popular then we'll want to do that this week whether Peats plays or not
If we trade out CNK/Sivo then it has to be for another WFB, as otherwise we leave ourselves too exposed.
There will almost certainly be another poll after origin, but we can't afford to wait too long on news for who will backup, so best to get an idea now of what we want
