    Brailey first to go preseason if a better option comes along.

    Currently don't have Lomax, do have Papy but they will be first to be traded out 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.

    I was considering Flegler with the Ofa news yesterday, but I don't think 3 weeks will be worth it

    Last week's trial nearly cemented Lomax for me. Slotting goals from the sideline. Highly involved in the attack as I'd predicted. And cheap. And available at centre. And should he score well enough, rd 12 also.

    It definitely feels weird spending $1.52m on WFB to kick off the year but I'm keen to focus my early trades elsewhere in my team, rather than trying to get sub-20 scorers out e.g. Ravalawa. Could end up blowing up in my face though

    I don't really trust anything out of the Raiders given their recent history with early returns, but...

    I've been warming on Haas the past couple of weeks.

    If I get him though, likely means missing Knight or Carrigan, and I've been warming on them too.

    Fifita and Merrin (if they are fit) the only other options I'm really considering starting

    He isnt named in the trial which suggests the warriors rumour has some weight (or he is well down the pecking order).

    Horsbough is going to play edge, apparently this was confirmed at the raiders fan day

    Do you think he can still have a good PPM on the edge or could he be like Ryan James who doesn’t score as well on the edge?

    If he is gonna play 70-80mins though surely he scores at least 40 and maybe 45.....

    I guess we'll see how they line up this weekend, in any case, 6 weeks 2RF/Lock for someone priced around 465k-485k (Horsy and Tapine) may not give enough ROI fantasy wise. If they were a bit cheaper I would be all over it
