Summary of last trades prior to round start.
Making way for Carrigan (52) was huge as he was great. Unfortunately Aekins (14) far underperformed both Shibasaki (33) and Watkins (40) so ended up picking the wrong one of the 3.
Finally traded Saifiti (32) to Rudolf (30) to free up the cash to swap Mann (41) to Stimson (24). 50/50 on the first trade, didn't really make any difference by disappointed in Stimson given he played 70 minutes, hope for better this week as I doubt I'll be getting rid of him.
Koroiasu (84) - Amazing no change needed
Haas (73) Knight (45) - Haas was excellent as usual. Expected Knight to get more minutes but nearly 1Pt/min is nothing to complain about, will continue to monitor over the next weeks.
Kikau (32) Tapine (40) D Fifita (76) - Kikau started off the bench but named to start this week so not much concern there for me. Would have liked more from Tapine for 80minutes but not looking to change yet. Nothing to say about Fifita, exceeded expectations.
Moses (43) Drinkwater (45) - Slow start from Moses but ended with an ok score in a low scoring game. Drinkwater was great for his price.
Staggs (30) Lomax (43) - Staggs only played 50 minutes, hopefully gets more this week and then should be solid. Disappointed that Lomax is moving from full back, need to keep an eye on his pt/min.
Pap (40) Aekins (14) Ferguson (29) - Pap on par, Aekins was terrrible looking to move him on. Ferguson below par but also a low scoring game, want to persist with him for another week due to their weak draw but I think I'm leaning towards moving him on; likely for Issako.
Stimson (24) Walters (50) B Brailey (45) Carrigan (52) - Disappointed in Stimson given him game time but might stick with him another week given his low price. All 3 others were amazing.
Luai (33) Rudolf (30) Keppie (19) Taunoa-Brown (35) - Keppie the only "disappointment" with my cash-cows, not looking for changes here either.
Edit: Rd1 score: 838, rank: 9147, cash change: +250k
Will post my Wk2 change plans later but am thinking of getting in Isaako as he looks like a possible early keeper given he will be taking the kicking duties and won't be playing origin.
