    I’m very disappointed in how Lomax, Luai and Aekins went today.


    I'm not too concerned about Lomax and Aekins, they should be ok. Luai on the other hand...

    Mary said Lomax is struggling to assert himself into the dragons attack. The fact Mary said that is a bit concerning. A lot of drop ball today but it kind of seemed accurate.

    Lomax has put down bombs two weeks in a row now and kicked out on the full off kick off yet again.

    Lomax and Aekins big disappointments today for sure.

    Torn between the 3 for centre pos pending TLT

    Bird at fb could produce some decent scores imo

    Burns (if fit) could definitely be playing where he left off last season... lets hope its nothing a bit of RICER cant fix!

    Not much talk about ramien but liked the way he played in the all stars game 👀 how does he score playing on Sjs side? TB machine from what I've seen

    Throw Staggs into that mix. Broncos attack seems to be going his side.

    Turpin was going right all game, and Croft doing ALL the kicking. Staggs with GK worth considering. A little concerning for Difita - next to no ball and half his points came from a play where the Titans thought the game had stopped.

    I really don't wanna start without Latrel now. Playing fullback I think he averages 50 and could be 800k before you know it. What's everyone else's thoughts?

    Croft looked great, although Milf is a renowned kicker so hard to see Croft taking that larger % of the KMs through the season.  I didn't had him last time so haven't been burned and not gun shy.  That's probably a bad thing.

    If Latrell averages 50 over the first three rounds he will rise 10k.

    I think he's a wait and see.

    Burns, Momirovski (if playing centre), Hopoate, Bird etc. will all score similar and are much cheaper

    I think there's just too many other similarly priced proven fullbacks mate.

    After watching the Bronx trial tonight realising how much they went to the opposite side of Fifita it raises concern for me. Whilst I know he is an absolute freak and almost a must have and will still put up insane numbers, without his attacking stats he doesn't score very well. He's been in almost every single draft of mine. However, after tonights game I have raised a question: Would starting WITHOUT a gun 2RF be a smart idea due to the amount of value in guys like: Williams, Hess, Carty, Leilua, Su'A, Possibly Stimson etc. All these guys will make decent cash and put up good scores if starting, and it will also allow me to upgrade other weaker spots and maybe go a 2 gun half team?

    Honestly I pray everyone has the same mindset as some in here and dumps DFifita after a trial game HALF.

    Leave him for the rest of us

    The thing with DFifita is he’s almost guaranteed a 10+ point play per game.

    I’m still not sure he starts once Ofa is back, though. Seibs has been pretty strong on TPJ as an edge player, but may need to shift him to prop rotation until Ofa returns.

    8. TPJ
    9. Turpin/McCullough
    10. Haas
    11. Glenn
    12. Fifita
    13. Carrigan

    14. Turpin/McCullough
    15. Flegler
    16. Ofahengaue
    17. Kennedy

    Wouldn't this be the Broncos pack?

    Yeah I have no idea what the big deal is, he only played 40 mins and got 38 points

    Only 2 that turned me off were Luai and Lomax but obviously if Burton is named you pick him

    The thing that turned me off Lomax was his unwillingness on kick returns but his defensive positioning was rather good

    Everyone else I was considering was fine. Can't really make anything of Knights game given they were against 3rd string Roosters team but already had Shibasaki in & around my squad due to lack of other CTR options and was good.
