    Even though Wests prices/positions haven't been revealed to us, they would have been set ages ago, before any articles about Mbye playing hooker.

    I'd expect him to be CTR, or CTR/WFB based on last year.
    From a fantasy point if view that is preferable. He'd be a dud pick at hooker, but might provide some value in the backline

    MBye playing hooker available in the centres sounds like a pretty sweet deal. Not sure his defence would be up to it however. I could see him doing some scooting though so could be worth a punt.

    Mbya will likely be priced close to his historical average at hooker (a few games several years ago) so he won't be an autopick. If priced strictly to his average he'll be under priced by 3-4 points

    I mean it’s be great if he did start at lock but I don’t know why Offa wouldn’t be starting he has a big motor and they still have TPJ for impact

    Its all just our opinions at this stage, but I reckon Ofa will come off the bench.

    Re the other questions, about who starts on the edges, its literally all just guess work from us at the moment. There's been no solid info. I posted a few days ago the 'depth chart' that was spotted in Siebolds office, but really, that could change at any time. He could easily be challenging certain players to work harder to earn their positions.

    Fair enough then!

    Good position for finding some cheapies who have so many ways to score points mind, but have to nail the right ones as said.

    I love George Williams but I think....he is priced too high for the risk

    Think I'll have to start with Moses after the reward he provided me with last year, might of been my favourite ever trade in, going from turnstyle middie to uber half GUN
    Whelp, wasn't going to go Williams but looks like this cements it. Can't go against a tried and tested fomula, though my head says he won't score well enough with Wighton

    Leilani Latu has been released by the Titans to move to Warrington.

    Great news for the Titans, will free up some spending money. They need a couple of outside backs pretty desperately, AJ or Douehi would be good pick ups.

    Pretty interesting that Jesse Arthurs left a starting position at the Titan to be about 3rd string back up at the Broncos.

    It's a long time ago and as Matt said would be a different role this time around/ captain etc. If he's available at centre, that changes everything. The question becomes, can he score 40?

    Don't think i noticed this in years gone by but this is actually a decent page from NRL.com 2020 Squads
    Haven't checked how accurate it is (shouldn't be too hard to be, so i assume it is).

    Anyone suppose Haas gets rested rd 13 less than 48 hours after origin one (in NZ from Adelaide)? I thought for sure Cook would last year and didn't.

    They've been running that page for about 12 months now, and from what I've seen, they keep it very up to date. Its handy

    I think this got him into a bit of trouble at the Knights previously, but I actually like hearing a player speak like this for a change.

    Danny Levi: “Not to be cocky but I’ve always thought I was better than a lot of the hookers in the NRL but I thought I was never given a fair chance to show it. This fresh start will give me a chance.”

    He an interesting one then. I agree he's not an autopick, but as a subsequent poster noted, if he could eek out a couple more points above that historical ave, he then is up there in the keeper class of C, just.... so a slightly undervalued keeper at C, in a year where so far there aren't any obvious Nikora type players....yet. mmmm - on my watch list for sure (as long as he has C DPP)

    Saw something the other day that Arthurs was a smokey to start at fullback round 1 and has been getting some reps with the first team squad
