    Levi is also eager to increase his minutes under Hasler.
    He averaged a career-high 64 minutes in 2017 at the Knights when they went through a three-year period of finishing last.
    Interesting article on nrl.com about Levi. Here is a quote about him wanting to become an 80 minute player - makes him really tempting in my opinion "I definitely feel like I can do it, I've always said I want to be an 80-minute player but sometimes they thought giving me a spell was the best thing too," Levi said.
    "But I've always thought the best way to be that is to do it consistently."

    All football players think they are better than they actually are. Levi has been quoted saying he should be the NZ test hooker. I would be shocked if a player said they didn't want to play 80 minutes.

    I'd like to have Levi, but I rather run with Leilua at a similar price. I don't have enough cash to fit him into the team atm

    They don't have any other hookers. Unless Levi is struggling with fitness or is having an absolute shocker, he isn't getting pulled off to give Croker or Cust significant time at 9

    Yeah, I agree - I'm more sold on Api than Brailey or Levi... (I only have Friend and Api currently)

    God, I agree and it’s not even close. I will probably have Brailey now that King is gone for the season, but hardly excited about it

    No doubt about it Levi is going to be playing big minutes by necessity, any other year he would probably be in my team. But I rate Friend, Koroisau and Brailey above him.

    Brailey is one of those auto picks that I'm not excited about. First chance I have to ditch him I'll be moving him on

    Others include Lomax and Papenhuyzen

    Brailey being a whole bunch cheaper than Levi is the main reason I prefer him.

    Agree 100% on Friend and Koro. Not sure on Brailey vs Levi. I think Levi averages higher, whether or not that is enough to justify an extra 100k is a dif question.

    Hahahahaha

    Like to see some pre-season interview with Sam Lisone

    “I had a good summer, got right on the beers with the family and had some massive BBQs. I didn’t do any of my own training before pre-season so Kearns made me play 9s even though I have no agility or speed. Fact is I’m the size of 2 houses at the moment, so when I added 20 nuggs to my meal at the maccas Drive thru in Perth, the boss said he’s fucking me off to the Gold Coast and I can have all the McDonald’s and BBQs I like”

    Maybe Lisone can generate a cult following down at the Gold Coast, a bit of a George Rose esque vibe. He's usually good for two big runs per game. Line him up to take the kick off return/first carry off the drop out, then sub him off. Would love to see him skittle some blokes. The GC actually need to find a few characters in their team to get the fans to warm to them.. They are so bland.

    I don’t have a great deal of faith in Brailley, but it’s him or Su’A. I can’t decide. I already have 3 other HOK and Su’A plays round 12.

    Is having both Val and Papy a bad idea (3rd WFB is Aekin)? Still got Lolo and Defeater in my team

    1.2m bit tasty for me for 2 WFBs but nice backline and Val should be a great POD due to his lack of perceived value on paper, like G Williams, he’s hard to own from the off, at those odds but could boom!

    So Lodge and Offa are out and they gonna run a 2nd hooker. Extra mins for Haas? He could potentially play 80. Surely the chance of playing 80 means he has to be everyones captain round 1. Also Taumalolo's recent record vs Broncos must be a concern?

    Do you mean first to go in preseason if a better option comes along, or first to go when they peak?

    We were always going to run a utility, and Macca has been #2 on the depth chart all pre-season. Missing Lodge and Ofa just secures him on the bench over Paix since he can come on and defend strongly if needed.

    I do agree, Haas could play 80. Carrigan will probably get 60 to 65 mins. Our bench forward are looking like being Flegler, Kennedy, and Hopoate. Kennedy is a 20 min man and Hoppa hasn't played NRL.

    Surprisingly Holmes is in 19% of teams. Not a POD at all.
