    In my 45 years I have never seen a bloke fall asleep standing up after a bender-enter Krumpet, MASSIVE effort mate, you're a dead-set machine.  It is not surprising that you can't spell Krump without "rum".  I'd almost forgotten how good looking Honeysett is, and of course you can't spell Honeysett without "hot".  Last but not least, it was a pleasure finally meeting Random, he is an all round good bloke and you can't spell Random without "rad".  Although I thought it was a bit much us having to surrender our phones to your security detail before you would even enter the room mate...



    For those a bit worried about getting to a meet up, and it's human nature to be, just try to work through the anxiety of meeting complete strangers from the Internet who may or may not be fixing to harvest your organs.  We all know how awesome the posters in this Community are, and there is certainly a lot more on here I would love the chance to have a beer with one day  Very Happy

    I’m just anxious that some of you older blokes on the internet might in fact be 14yr old school girls catfishing us

    This is the first round in the whole season where ive been hesitating on the trades and smashing the reverse trade button.

    So far I have milf to SJ, brittain to kerr, and to'o to RTS. None of which fills me with great confidence. This leaves me with 6 trades. Its also the only round where I can capitalize on other teams misfortunes (SST and Pearce owners) and get into the top 100. Have 9 this round.

    Sort of sounds like Billy is keeping the 6. Bellyache saying he just wants him to go out their and play his role and don't try to be Cam Munster but be Billy Walters. Still nothing concrete but I don't see him changing.

    Welcome mate cheer

    Nice rise up the rankings this season. Isn't as easy as it looks finishing top 5k or 2k, but you're on track.

    Halves definitely a priority with Ponga out next week and Watson back at FB is a bit of a concern (though apparently he might get some HK time).

    I'm not too keen on trading Murray. Next week might have limited minutes or potentially rested, but expect him to kill it from Rd18 on.

    I'm focused on Supercoach this season, so can't really offer much worthwhile advice unfortunately.

    Fotuaika and Martin to Johnson and Tevaga

    Or

    Fotuaika, Martin, Kenny to McInnes, Johnson, Kerr

    The bottom option would leave you with only 3 trades left which will be extremely tight

    Don't have much time to crunch any numbers but don't trade murray. Kenny and Mofo could be a cashout to one of Coates/Farnworth/Walters/Kerr. You could then upgrace Hutch/Clark to pretty much anyone? Cam McInnes

    Cook
    Fifi Haas
    Taupau Lolo Murray
    Watson Ponga
    Nikora Bateman
    Teddy RTS Turbo
    CS9 Matterson Martin CM9
    Kerr, Clark/Hutch, Coates, Xerri

    Then after Origin you could go Martin or Xerri to anyone around 650-700 - Could go Drinkwater for a POD HLF, if not you should be able to afford Arey, Wighton, Cleary, DCE

    that would leave 2 trades and this team.**

    Cook
    fifi Haas
    Taupau Lolo Murray
    Ponga (Drink/Arey/Wighton/DCE/Cleary)
    Nikora Bateman
    Teddy RTS Turbo
    CS9 Matterson Martin/Xerri CM9
    Kerr, Clark/Hutch, Coates, Watson

    **If you want you can use a trade to go Xerri/Martin (whichever you didnt sell for your HLF) to Burns after Origin to cover for WFB/CTR.

    Just my thoughts.

    I get so jealous of you people with trades left. I have 4 trades left after this week. Will be using 1 in R17, 2 in R18 and 1 in R21 and spending R's 22-25 with no trades. At least I will have no headaches about who to trade in. Team will look like this though with plenty of cover.

    Welcome

    Personally I'd look at keeping Murray and trading Mofo, Martin and Kenny to McInnes, SJ and your choice of cheapie. Next week Xerri to Burns if you want him. 2 trades for the run home. Leaves you thin in the reserves but a pretty awesome 18.

    I assume the Brittain trade is the only way to get the other two? If so, solid I reckon.

    You could trade Martin to a cheapie and punt Mofo for McInnes. Perhaps enough after that to turn Kenny into SJ??

    If I go with my 3 trades I think I've settled on man I'm tempted to use a 4th and trade Lomax to Fus but would only leave me with 5. I keep coming back to him. I'm wondering if he can pick up a bit at the back end of the year. Someone talk me out of it.

    This is true, I just went from 332 to 326 ranking. SJ up to 73.

    I'm getting the Fus, but my situation is different. If I had Lomax I'd probably hold as cover for the run home and he'd likely be better cover than Fus.
