    I reckon McInnes will refuse to tackle his own team so he won't score many points.

    Not wrong mate! I think I'll stick with Haas. Massive game and I think Seibs will want the most out of his big men and Haas should see some big minutes, especially if Offa is out. No Brown in the middle and weather clearing before the game should see a game played very much through the middle.

    I've got 3. Fifita, Murray, Nikora.

    I've got the same 3 plus Munster

    I have 4, Murray, Cook, Fifita and Munster. 5 if you count Burns (since I sold and bought him back).

    Also now I'm really torn on captains, but I think I've narrowed it down to three.

    * Haas - Probably the safest pick of the bunch and the Eels suck against props.

    * Tedesco - Pumping out 70+ for fun and the Panthers aren't a good team

    * McInnes - Has a base to rival Haas and can get a handy TA/LBA or some TBs to boost his score.

    At the moment I've got it on McInnes but I know whichever one I pick will give me the lowest score, like Munster did last week.

    Speaking of captaincy, community team captaincy vote tied again between Cook/Haas

    Come and give the deciding vote (or maybe tie the vote again as has happened several times)

    (d) A. Fifita (probably the best option if he starts & he wore no strapping v the Warriors) or
    (e) Garner (a punt can go large if he stays on the field)

    Thoughts & thanks.

    Could always POD up and get Hopoate. He'll be running at Jordan Kahu and then Alex Glenn, and loves some TBs.

    The weight of public opinion has brought about change!

    FINALLY the champ champ has been given his due diligence. I'd like to thank all of you that signed the petition, marched on parliaments steps and went on hunger strikes. This is truly a victory for the people.. and even more so a victory for the Mod Champ Champ.

    To all the people that supported me this is a great moment for us, I'm sure you will remember this moment for a long time to come, ten years from now I would imagine you will be telling family members you remember where you were on this great day. To the other Mods, bow down to your King!

    It depends on your ranking in the NRLFF overall group. Top 16 get L1, next 16 get L2 etc.

    A ~500 rank would put you at about 55th in the group, or L4 (since 1-16 get L1, 17-32 get L2, 33-48 get L3 etc.)

    It also depends on how many people sign up again next year.

    Rank 18 in the FFOG (Fantasy Fanatics overall group) might get you into L1 next year if 2 people above you drop out.

    Also people who came top 50 this year but not in the FFOG might sign up next year. New entrants get excluded from the first few leagues so they won't go straght into L1 or L2. I can't remember what the highest league we put new people into is, but some people might get bumped down a league if some high ranked players join up next year

    The community team really sums it up. Our group think puts a team about 100th overall. No other "celebrity" team is even close.

    I’m in the same position - Nbrown to Kbrom leaves me exactly 0 cash with my last trade. I already have Fifita of the above list and at this stage taking the sign to empty the bank and grab Brom. I’d probably grab Fifita if I didn’t have him over any of the others there.
