    If I end up using my last trade on SST, I have $592k to spend.

    David Fifita and Nathan Peats are the short list - anyone else I should consider?

    I think they are a bit better than MoFo.
    James Graham is interesting if he stays at lock.

    I worry about James Graham staying fit and non concussed.

    I'm getting itchy trigger fingers to use my last trade on Matterson if he stays at lock and doesn't get 80 mins but I still feel it's 1-2 rounds too early and it's probably a luxury move that may backfire

    Matterson has one score over 50 since R15 when I brought him in (78 with the 30 point try in R16). The obvious move would be Jurbo but now the carryover points worry me, Arrow returning from injury soon with Brennan no longer coach could be interesting POD

    Depends whether Peats keeps playing 80 mins as well. If he does, then they will probably rotate Arrow. But maybe they are only pushing Peats for 80 right now because they don't have Arrow..

    I am looking at using my last trade on SST also but only have 566K to spend. Looking at Finucane, Garner, Surgess, Granville, Peats, Wright.

    Would probably rank them as;

    Finucane
    Garner (If Starting)
    Peats
    Granville
    Wright (If second row)
    Surgess

    Think SST has done his day in my team, was a good POD but with the injury looming and minutes on the down I am willing to use my last trade.

    Any chance there’s no bench hooker again for the Tigers this week and beyond?

    I have narrowed it down to
    Wright
    Finucane
    Surgess
    Peats

    Wright - Seems a good shout if he can stay at second row and not get moved to CTR. Makes a truck load of tackles and has a decent running game. Don't see a massive ceiling, but see a solid 45 points there.
    Finucane - Workload appears to have dropped off over origin. Minutes seem to be increasing and he needs the minutes for big scores. Solid 50 points scorer if the minutes pick up.
    Surgess - Great looping options. Very boom/bust. Lowe has been getting a tonne of ball on that edge... insert Surgess and the whole teams morale picks up plus he has a big ceiling. Plus that DPP is sweet.
    Peats - Tackles seem pretty high due to the flogging they got from the Storm and Broncos; however, I see these scoring trends continuing. If Mitch Rein is anywhere around the team he is a no go but if he continues to get 80 minutes he is a decent 50+ scorer.

    Garner - Minutes seem too much of a worry. So many second rowers hanging around that team. Played 79 minutes on the weekend and I think he is solid! Would love some concrete info on this blokes as he is a great player who can score well in fantasy.
    Granville - Too inconsistent

    ALL I KNOW IS SST IS GONE FROM MY TEAM THIS WEEK AND I AM RUNNING THE SEASON OUT ON 0 TRADES.

    Tigers seem to change there team list around the other teams pack. Bigger pack of the Knights last week so went a 4 forward bench.

    Someone like Wade Graham could be a cheap smokey from here. Sharks broke their losing streak last week, it was scrappy, but those types of wins are sometimes a big turning point.

    Assuming he is fit/etc.

    - Isaac Luke try, those are typically called a knock on.
    - Pap's clear knock on when on the attack.
    - Tevaga was incredibly lukcy not to be sin binned or even penalised.

    Probably because I had bet on the Eels, and don't own Tevaga. Beauty in the eye of the beholder and all that

    Oh wait. The RTS forward pass call. Yeah that was crap.

    The strip call on CHT and the non-strip call on the Eels were the worst of the day for me. CHT one was especially bad with Blair's arms well away from the tackle.

    James Graham is 566k. That's surely telling you something.

    Madge's decision to bench Twal still seems strange. See what TLT brings.

    W.Graham could be back this week. If Xerri stays on the left edge that could spell great things for Graham. Capewell has been getting plenty of ball on that edge, so Graham should get the same treatment and hopefully grab a few TA's/LBA's with Xerri there. He had 50 on his return game and that was through tackles and MG alone basically. Pending TLT I am looking at Surgess, W.Graham, Finucane, Garner, Wright... probably in that order.

    Anyone see any other players/got any other information to help sway my decision... not a fan of J.Graham.

    Just on Garner, his performance was outstanding on Friday night. He was a threat every time he got ball and was fantastic in defence. I think he is an extremely good chance of starting every game and playing 65+ minutes for the rest of the season.

    Cheers mate! Yeah I have always said he looks dangerous and really liked him from his earlier stint this year. Should be playing 80 minutes!! I am just scared he grabs a HIA and is gone, or Madge changes his mind again. Have a tough choice to make

    I can go SST to NBrown in 1 trade leaving me with 2 left.

    Anyone cheaper than that I should be considering?
