    Weren't you like 9000 or something not to long ago?  You've done well making up that ground mate.

    Sitting around 200th. Lost big time on that bye round.
    Will be happy to stay in the top 200 with only 3 trades left.

    Usually finish somewhere around 300-500 so this is a slightly better year than most at this stage.
    No idea what my highest ranking was but I've finished inside the top 100 and outside the top 2000 over the years so it ebbs and flows for sure! Smile

    went back at looked at my starting team, no wonder i found myself in this mess:
    McCullough, Friend
    Vaughan Tolman, Sele
    Arrow, Murray, Lane, Gillet, Garner
    Morgan, Keighran, Brown
    Holland, Capewell, Nikora, Bird
    Edwards, Burns, CNK, Kahu

    outside of Murray, Garner, Nikora & CNK, just a bunch of not-quite-guns that stayed not-quite-guns or went backwards, a bunch of mid-rangers that stayed mid-rangers or went backwards, and a bunch of cash-cows who made 100k at the most, not finding room for Mahoney or Burr immediately stands out as the cherry of top of the shit sandwich.

    I had Holland and Edwards, but Holland only lasted a week, Edwards lasted two. My team wasn't too bad but captain's choice's messed me up a fair bit. I want to start with Cook next year.

    I like to see how my team compares to others sometimes. For anybody who cares, 41 out of the top 100 have Tevaga.

    apologises for not joining any of the forum leagues this season, was a bit late and concentrating on a work cash league instead.  Next year I'll jump on board.

    Thinking of blowing two of my five remaining trades this week

    Watson & Mahoney to Jrbo & DCE/Arey

    Will leave me with this

    Smith
    Fifita Haas
    Tolo Murray Matterson
    SJ DCE
    Nikora Bateman
    TTrbo Teddy RTS

    Cook, Ponga, Jrbo, AFB

    Burns, Carrigan, Walters, Pearson

    Bit nervous about having 3 trades for 7 rounds worth of injuries but trading in and out halves has cost me this year

    Sitting at 450 which would represent my worst finish for a few years so need to make up a few spots.

    Pull the trigger or look at other options?

    By contrast Jurbo only in 19 of top 100 teams. I wonder if this is the week he gets traded in for many, or if limited trades mean he's a bit more PODdy?

    I don't mind them as trades

    Pretty much guaranteed 100+ a week and you don't have to worry about Watsons positional drama

    Great captain choice makes a world of difference early weeks. Unless we get a break or cheap captaincy option like 2017 Crichton, Cook will easily show his worth

    Well she couldn't possibly do worse than the muppets we've had over recent weeks. Or could she?
    Talking about referees, I went through the Tigers game and found at least 11 calls that went against the Tigers (after 14 dud calls last week against the roosters)

    These were the decisions in chronological order:
    1. 8th minute: Moses is chasing his own kick and runs into Thompson. Thompson does not change his line at all and he turns his back to avoid the collision. The referee awards a penalty to Parramatta and they kick the penalty goal
    2. 13th minute: Jennings loses possession of the ball but re-gathers it without it touching a Parramatta player or the ground. The referees rules it to be a knock-on and Parramatta get possession but it should've been Tigers ball attacking Eels line.
    3. 17th minute: I've got no idea what the referee could've possibly given this penalty for. Takairangi tried to milk the penalty and the refs just blew their whistle.
    4. 27th minute: Niukore took the hit up and was tackled by the Tigers players. The referee deemed the Elijah Taylor to  holding on too long. I thought this was extremely soft especially when you compare it to #8. Parramatta then kick the penalty goal.
    5. 31st minute: Robbie Farah offloads the ball backwards and the refs say it's a knock-on
    6. 32nd minute: Blake Ferguson has his foot on the sideline but Parramatta get the scrum and go on to score that set.
    7. 45th minute: Ferguson jumps to catch a kick from Brooks. On his way down, he collides with Jennings' back and then falls to the ground. The referees award a penalty to Parramatta despite Jennings not even being able to see Ferguson with his back turned to avoid collision. Jennings was attempting to tackle Ferguson and did not change his line at all.
    8. 58th minute: Twal take a hit up but the Parramatta players held on just as long as Taylor did in #4 if not longer. Despite this, referees don't give Tigers a penalty
    9: 67th minute: Brooks puts up a kick and Jennings contests with Gutherson. Gutherson knocks the ball forward into Jennings but the referees call it as a knock-on against the Tigers. 
    10. 67th minute: Horrible PTB by Paulo. There were heaps of incorrect PTB’s by parramatta but the list would be too long if I wrote every single one.
    11. 79th minute: Luke Brooks throws the Parramatta player’s boot away. The referee gives a penalty to Parramatta even though Ben Hunt did the exact same thing in Origin 1 and was not penalised. Parramatta then kick the penalty goal.

    Just had a look at my round #1 team

    Fails/Not the finest options include

    Cleary, McCullough, Sironen (?), Host (not Lawrie Very Happy ), Rava (not Sivo), Keighran, Sele (ZZZZ) & Kahu (who I knew would burn me)

    Some of those did alright in the end but having mid priced guns lose money and score meh is not ideal
