    Anyone else running a 4 hooker bench? Was gung ho about it now I'm not so sure it's worth risking running with no cover. Just wondering if anyone else is ballsy enough to do the same.

    Don't see why he would change it on gameday - Papenhuyzen has been playing well in roving lock role and not too sure Walters would offer much utility value

    So early in the week Milford was listed as indefinite, with a possibility of 1-2 weeks out or possibly for much longer.
    Has there been any update on that?

    I'm thinking of holding both Milford and Ponga this week, and trading one of them to Cook in a couple of weeks, hopefully with better info on their Injuries. But if Milford is definitely out long term I'll just ditch him now

    I'll

    DT late mail

    Kerr staring. Lawrie bench.

    Don't be surprised to see Hughes 5/8, Papy Fullback with Walters bench.

    I need to grab 2 cashouts to afford Fifita + TTurbo + Burns for my final 18 in place of Watson, Xerri and Mann

    I've locked in Walters as Munster handcuff (assuming he's starting) but torn between Coates vs bench forwards (Kerr, Kennedy, Saulo, Fa’asuamaleaui). Coates would be needed if Tedesco doesn't back up next week but otherwise would be not needed

    What kind of role do you think Kerr will play if he starts?

    I’m going with two hookers (smith + McInnes), Taukeiaho, and Twal/Tevaga on the loop

    Was just reading that page it says expected to be 1-17 with only potential change of Kerr starting and Lawrie bench rather than explicitly saying Kerr will start

    Guess we'll find out tonight (will be even more torn over switching Coates cashout to Kerr if so because Coates would be useful next week if another FB doesn't back up but Kerr would probably have greater points potential)

    Kerr is a gun. I might reverse my trade of Walter to Kerr. Prefer a cashout with potential to play them on the run home. Walter will only play if there’s injuries/rested

    Knights Mitchell Pearce is expected to be rested from #NRLKnightsBulldogs in Rd 17 due to 2 day turnaround from #Origin - wacko

    I expect a lot of late changes to the teams with so many rookies around. If Walters is benched I'll grab Coates. If teddy and Ponga out next round I can chuck Burns and Watson at the back.

    Yea, just gonna have to wait. I'm only going with one cashout for Havili. Kerr/Coates being the options for me. Caveat on Kerr staring.

    Bellamy eluded to Papy staying on the bench after last week. Saying Hughes would keep the FB spot if fit and he loves Papy as the super sub coming on when the opponents forwards are tired.

    Plus, what is the point in having a half on the bench? Not like Croft and Hughes can't play out a full 80? I honestly don't see the spine changing, but I am happy to be proved otherwise.

    Can't help but think RTS is being left a little high and dry when it comes to a captaincy option. I dont own him but his form the last two has been good and in a Knights team with no Pearce, no Ponga, no Klemmer, no Glasby, no Saifiti Warriors will be pretty high on confidence.

    These are the exact types of games they blow. They do not play well against weakened/lower ranked opposition.

    Problem with RTS is he can have a great game and still only score 30 fantasy points. Its a ballsy pick. Props to anyone that does it.

    Any idea why I can't find Canterbury cup stats for Kerr?
