    Examples of Strong / Weak halves combinations the last couple of years:
    DCE/any of them next to him have been weak
    Milf/any of them next to him have been weak
    Moses/It took Norman leaving to make him a strong dominant player

    Their strong scoring tends to be because the guys next to them are weaker. Cleary has been scoring at that same level as these guys, despite having a strong halves partner in Maloney next to him. This season he takes full control and takes things to the next level.

    The thing that drew me to Cleary was the fact he only had 9 try assists and 8 line break assists all year. Those are absurd numbers for a "dominant" half

    Do you expect Ese'ese to start? I assume so otherwise what are you expecting from him

    Personally I don't see a lot of value in Nathan Brown. Don't think he is underpriced enough to make decent cash, and don't think he scores well enough to be a season keeper.


    He has a very real chance of starting, had a down year due to Brown dropping him for perceived defensive inefficiencies in a trial, clashed with Brown, and his father also passed away.
    I just think O'Brien will get the best out of him and he will have a good year. Loves a tackle break, just needs 40 minutes and hopefully a little more, should gain a few of Klemmer's minutes I think.
    Has shown before he can score well, just an alternative to Mofo and Knight as not sold on them either.

    Nathan Brown loves an injury but think if he can stay fit its a possibility he averages mid 50s

    Could that be because he scores the tries himself instead? (10 last year vs Moses 2)

    Thanks no worries, ive already given details here for those leagues, it was more a request to enter players own individual leagues. Sorry for the confusion, just thought individual league codes would have been advertised, but havent saw any.

    Cook or McInnes
    Haas + 300-400 FRF
    3 x 400-500 2RF (most options have been posted)
    Moses + Doueihi (cant afford Croft at this point)
    Lomax + Best
    Pap + Isaako + Brimson

    Friend + Koro + Brailey + Grant
    Luai + 3 x 250

    A bit exposed at 2RF, hopefully can score heavy enough anyway. Hmmm

    The Panthers are worse than the Sharks, so that's a reason to think twice about Cleary as much as Johnson. 

    I dunno. There are four potential gun halves (DCE, Moses, SJ, Cleary) as well as a couple who could be (Milford,, Hunt) but have more of a reason to wait and see, and a few (Brooks, Pearce, Munster) who are a notch down but could elevate.

    Of the four, I don't like Moses, who had a career year last year and I would expect Dylan Brown to do a lot more this season than last. SJ and Cleary both solid picks but see above, and Cleary SoO. Safest pick and probably highest scorer is DCE but he's more expensive and Origin as well.
    I still think Moses will get the same amount of kick metres and Brown will be a runner of the footy.

    I can’t split whether to go with Moses or Cleary right now.

    SJ I don’t have enough confidence in.

    I just settled on a team I'm happy with for now only to realise I have 6 hookers in my 17....you can never have too many hookers, right!?

    If you believe the biggest bullshitter in NRL then the Roosters may be considering Dugan.

    Id actually like to see how he went there tbh

    You'll automatically go in the league for the teams you list as supporting. Only the club leagues have prizes - wining the league for NSW/QLD/whatever country gives you nothing.

    Normally Titans are one of the weaker leagues. Canberra and Penrith have been weak in the past too when I've checked.
    Warriors are a tough club to win, a lot of Kiwis play fantasy

    In previous years the club prizes were specific to the club (ie  win the Roosters league and get Roosters season tickets) so there was not necessarily a point in going for an "easy" club.
    These days it looks like its just a straight out $250 voucher for every club, so may as well go for the weak teams.

    While most of us are looking to start with Best, anyone considered Shibasaki? He just couldn't get it right for the Broncos, but may well win the right centre position at the Knights by the sounds of things.

    Averaged 29.6 last year across 9 games where he got 60 or more minutes, without scoring a try, and dropping the ball every time he got near it (well, he dropped it a lot.. averaged 1.2 errors per game).

    Comes at the same price as Best.

    Change of scenery might see him find his feet in the NRL. One of only a couple of players to play U16s, U18s, and U20s origin.

    Don't think Shibasaki will be in first grade tbh. Behind both Best and Moga for mine

    Whoever gets the centre spot at the knights is going to be fairly cheap.

    How keen are you to run 2 Newcastle centres in your team anyway.

    From a fantasy point of view, a fit Moga offers the best value

    I think it will be close. Moga has been rubbish since having 1 good season for the Broncos. Admittedly has had injury problems, but last season his  attitude was poor and he is generally bad defensively.

    Shibasaki is strong defensively and that may be the way O'Brien goes as they aren't short of strike power elsewhere in the backline.

    EDIT: I wouldn't run two Newcastle centres, no chance. Just putting up some different discussion tbh.
