    Good to hear! Yeah a few horrific team performances didn’t help! The tigers and panthers games were disgusting to watch.

    Yeah exactly. I would say the constant changes do have me feeling like I’ve analyzed A LOT of players and gradually find the closest thing I can to the best value teamwork [/quote]

    Howdy Ponga You the man,
    as a fellow Knights tragic, I gotta agree, the last couple of games were disgusting.
    No one wanted to be there - I reckon they should have sent the Ressies down for a hit out with the carrot of a potential upgrade to 1sts if they killed it. I watched Barnet get swatted by Kikau and had to laugh...or choke on my beer.

    What's your opinion on Best? Awkward price for a kid whose basically a rookie, especially as there's others in the same boat who are cheaper. I like how he runs but can't bring myself to run him in the centres yet.

    I've had Mann in and out of my team all pre-season, juicy price if he gets the 5/8 gig, but have to admit Drinky was impressive in the 9s; full disclosure I wasn't on him at all before Perth.

    How good did that kid Gidley go, reckon he's a cert for a contract upgrade cheer

    Love your posts RE injuries, offering a professional eye over how many weeks a player may miss.

    Cheers Wolfy,
    I spend too much time mucking around with team iterations, trying not to follow the pack too closely, tend to 'listen' (copy) Milchcow, you, MTB etc. which usually goes well. My team is currently filled with too many middies, need an extra gun.
    I'll post it with my think probs tonight.

    Update on Cameron McInnes via NRL Physio

    Likely 6-12 weeks out with medium to high grade (likely Grade 3) MCL injury

    Also Korbin Sims was cleared of arm fracture

    Interesting, I didnt know they did that. Ups his stakes a bit... Kinda tempted to have him and Merrin in that format Smile

    Just redid my team to try to fit Taumalolo into my side, thoughts?

    Api
    Haas, Knight
    D Fifita, Lolo, L Leilua
    Cleary, Croft
    Lomax, Best
    Drinky, Papy, Sailor/Saab (whoever gets named)

    Hess, Brailey, Luai, Magoulias

    3x246k + 1x228k (atm it's Musgrove, Leniu, Lele and Kolo but depends who gets named on TLT)

    $41k ITB

    Usually McInnes waits to near the end of the season to get injured or knocked out so it's good to see him mixing it up.
    When Knight gets dpp I'm considering putting him in my 14-17 position as cover & picking another prop to start with Haas. The problem though is no one is screaming pick me & a lot of the value 2fr's who would be cheaper than Merrin for example will imo match his score.

    Sucks for McInnes.

    I wouldn't think Luke can play more than 60 minutes effectively? Will need a bench hooker/utility to split the 80 mins at hooker.. may open up slight increase in mins for another middle (since McInnes won't be there to spend time at lock)
