    Impossible to predict really.

    Would probably take 2 or 3 serious injuries to really hurt a few teams. Even if a gun sits out a week, most can cover with a loop.

    I've got a mediocre 18th man and I'm still probably going to use my last trade dumping AFB this week. Just to top it off I'm considering replacing him with Fifita

    With 1 trade left I'll be holding for an injury but when I look at my trades this year there were 2 wasted trades where I basically got no return:
    (1) I buy Dearden the week he got injured so I basically got 5 minutes from him &
    (2) I buy Ash Taylor the week before he has a mental breakdown & the game he played he didn't really score much.

    And I got these 2 during the bye period.

    Is Ponga worth using my last trades on to bring in? Or now that the Knights season is effectively done, is he going to hang up the cue?

    Would be trading Corey Thompson and Pearce to Ponga & Verrils (Verrils and Twal would be my 18th/19th men)

    Literally the only two games worth watching. Every other game looks shit in comparison.

    Burns would be my 19th man so im tempted to trade Matterson to someone like jturbo but not sure whether to wait another week to see what happens. Can see jturbo scoring a try against the Warriors though

    He's only scored one try this year. If you think he'll get a try because he's facing a weak team - he didn't score against the Titans (x2), Dragons (x2), Bulldogs or the last time they played the Warriors and averaging 49 in those games mentioned.

    The problem for Burns is no one gives him any ball.

    Blake Ayshford is the 4th most traded in player since lock out.
    Admittedly it hasn't been long but.... what??

    Bottom dollar but he's there for a reason.

    Dear God we need Herbert back. Hope his hamstring is all good by Friday!

    With James Roberts on the other side I'm not surprised Burns is seeing less ball.
    In saying that, a floor of 33 is pretty good for a centre. If we didn't have Bateman and Nikora this season then Burns would be in most teams.

    If I had the balls, I'd be looking at James and Wade Graham for one of my two remaining trades.

    I was considering him for Xerri, but its really a waste of a trade on an 18th man.

    I still don't have Ponga. The obvious trade is RTS, just not sure whether to pull the trigger. Nearly did it last week, funnily enough I was better off with RTS.

    Another alternative is Matterson to Jake Turbo.

    I guess the question is, will Ponga outscore RTS by more than Jake Turbo will outscore Matto?

    Matto 60 mins at lock is a bit uninspiring. Less likely to jag a try now too, it would seem.

    Tevaga is still there, still pumping out big scores too. Lawton injured again, Tevaga will be 9 again this week. Not that it is a bad thing, but I thought Tevaga might move back to the bench with Lawton 9 and Burr staying in the 13 after last week.

    Thanks for bringing this up, as I think James Graham is worth consideration for me. Move to lock maybe moved him from high 40s to low 50s avg?

    I feel like Wade is too risky - might just be Nikora without the dual position.
