    Was it here or on FB was posted people with same grade injury back to 2006 and longest out was 8 weeks

    Yeah NRL Physio reported on FB its a 6-12 week injury, and yet had a table in the post where no NRL player in recent memory has spent longer than 8 weeks out. Still, that means out until R4-R6

    So what do people think about starting with Friend and Koro (who are in my team already) as the HRKs and start playing around with trading McInnes to some one cheap to upgrade elsewhere?
    I'm inclined to just trade McInnes to CS9?

    I think if you really wanted a gun hooker, moving to CS9 is the obvious call.

    If no 246k or 228k centres are named plus none of Stimson or Carrigan starting then I’ll be pissed off.

    There’d better be a rookie winger or 2 named as well.

    Anyway still more trials to come and there is bound to be injuries.

    Depends if you still want a gun hooker. If you do, then makes sense to pivot to CS9.

    Sharks with 4 of the top 20 centres, not too shabby at all

    Ahh Joey Manu. Wasn’t he talked up big around here? His name certainly has disappeared over the last couple of parts

    Manu one of the best real life centres in the game, just doesn't translate to fantasy points.

    Aside from D Fifita and Lomax, he just picked his mates from the Raiders (10 of them!), then he remembered he also still has mates from the Warriors, and also he knows some other Kiwis. Then some random 228/246k-ers when he'd blown his salary cap. I really enjoyed it.

    @The Bludger wrote:Been tinkering around with The Bludgers, here's the latest iteration.

    Unmade Bed – Friend (Injury prone, but too juicy at his price and potential upside)
    FRF – Haas / Merrin (Wanted Big-Haas for set and forget Capt. 2nd FRF could be Knight / Mofo / Lawrie, I worry about Krispy-Kreme, he’s burned me twice before…)
    2RF – Tolo / DFifi / Stimson (TL dependent on Stimson)
    Hlf – Croft / Luai (weak Halves, but I wanted Tolo)
    Cnt – Suli / Moga (Got nuthin. POD pick, gut feeling based on Suli’s efforts late 2019 and faith in Des to keep working him.)
    WFB – Pappy / Brimson / Drinky (Rabbits convinced me to pick up Drinky over Isaako
    etc., DPP helps cover any Half injuries)

    14 – 17 – Brailey / Williams / Tetavano / Koro
    18 – 21 – Magoo / S. Crichton / Smith-Shields / G. Leleisiuao (or another $228k)

    Feel free to carve it up - the regular crew on here have waaaay more Fantasy cred than I do.
    Nice team
    I think your 18-21 is a little bit weak (e.g. low job security) but I guess it’s all dependent on TLT

    I’m not the biggest fan of Williams and Tetevano tbh
    Moga could be a really good pick if he gets the centre spot (although he does have a bit of competition)
    I’m not 100% sold on Drinkwater yet but he’s not the worst option
    I prefer JMK over Croft but that’s just me
    Merrin is a good pick to change things up - he should average high 40’s which is pretty decent
    Everything else is good!!

    To be fair I looked at Beale a little bit ago because of his price and the amount of tile he spent on the bench last year. If he starts I’ll probably pick him up

    You're better than that mate.

    Yep, McInnes was my #1 dude. Very bummed that of all the possible big name chaps to get injured in the pre-season, he was the one (Fantasy-wise). In light of today's news I switched over to Dr J. Taumalolo.

    Reason why he over Smith is that although I want Smith in my team at some point, I think Smith will definitely lose a fair chunk of cash. Dr J. Taumalolo very likely loses some value too, but only significant value loss would be result of injury, which we all hope he can avoid.

    Thoughts on Wayde Egan? Would nikorima eat into his minutes with CHT on bench and Karl Lawton looming. Is it worth getting him or too risky.

    On Crichton at centre, it wouldn't be the first time Robbo has pulled some WCC shenanigans to get fantasy coaches interested. They have included Remi Casty starting at prop to never be seen again, Kane Evans starting at prop, putting up a huge PPM and slowly having his minutes/points drop once the season started and even last year Brett Morris at centre before spending the entire season on the wing

    From a football perspective, Crichton would be damaging offensively but would leave a lot to be desired with his lateral movement in defense.

    From a fantasy perspective it would make Aubbo a serious option in centres and would make Crichton a DPP option for the back end of the year
