    Do the bunnies have any cash left? Its would be foolish to assume arrow jumps ship. What happens if lowe or Sua go down? Something has got to give. Who could you see them swapping AJ for? RFM isnt getting much game time... Or even a depth signing like McQueen from the tigers.

    I won’t be surprised if Murray moves to second row but in attack he floats around in the middle, all his juniors Murray played second row I’m pretty sure, then when Arrow needs a rest Murray would then defend in the middle at lock.

    8. Tom
    9. Cook
    10. Knight
    11. Murray
    12. Lowe
    13. Arrow

    14. Doueihi/Amone (Doueihi may start at fullback still)
    15. Tatola
    16. Su’a
    17. Nicholls

    18. Sironen


    Depends if we get Arrow early, talk is that is 50/50

    You want to play the 2nd or 3rd best lock in the world in the second row?

    Alright lads! Hope everyone in here from Aus is okay with all these fires! Stay safe boys!

    What’s this about Cook? First picked for me, Potentially 161,000 underpriced. No brainer

    Thanks guys!
    If Arrow does move to Souths early like you were suggesting, what does that mean for the Titans pack? Who will pick up the extra minutes?

    Wait he doesn’t start the season on or around the price he finished on?

    Nope based on average with a few other discounts that don't apply to cook (Less than 10 games or ownership under 12.5%)

    Will start on 940k

    That’s what I get for spending too much time away from the game ha

    Will still start the season with the Cookie Monster

    Matt Lodge is an interesting one. Due to pricing discount he starts 40k under valued at 711k, cheaper than Twal who averaged 3 points less

    No
    I’m pretty sure his price is his average multiplied by the magic number (roughly 15000) with an adjustment factor

    Hey Welshy. I read this yesterday on NRL.com (casualty ward) about J.Turbo so keep track of his progress;

    Manly Sea Eagles
    Sea Eagles forwards Jake Trbojevic and Addin Fonua-Blake will sit out the entire summer with shoulder surgery expected to rule them out of the opening rounds of 2020. Trbojevic told AAP in early January that he was hopeful of being right to play for the first match of the season.

    Well he’s priced about 48 so he would need to be scoring at least 55 per week to be worth it imo. He probably won’t be a keeper in the front row (unlike Haas, AFB, Taupau, Arrow, Fifita etc) and won’t generate enough cash compared to somebody like James.

    I like the look of Liam Knight as starting prop at the bunnies, slightly undervalued if you look at his 2019 games when he started on the field in that position. (Another slightly undervalued mid range option would be Fotuaika at the Titans)

    He has a little upside but probably not enough to be worth it. From round 10 on wards Lodge averaged 54.4 and looked much better by the "eye test"

    Before round 10 Lodge averaged 139 metres per game in 54 minutes. After round 10 he averaged 163 metres in 57.6 minutes. From watching the games I would say most of that is due to "running harder". He also saw an uptick in offloads (2 before round 10 and 15 afterwards) and tackle busts (11 before round 10 and 62 afterwards)

    Is he likely to come out starting the season that strong? We will have to wait and see
