    Need to drop one of Lucy, Esy E or Levi
    I prefer to keep Esy E the most but my money is so tight I need to downgrade Luai to JTB as my cashie
    If not for that it would only be Lucy v Levi

    I never really thought about starting with Lolo but now questioning why I don't have him. Don't want to give up Moses and Nofo though.

    How many miss tackles?

    Drinkwater seems pretty solid at actually tackling, sometimes he can make some bad decisions and be out of position. I'd say around 3 per game

    Has he suddenly turned good in the off-season ? Pearce will be doing all the kicking, Ponga will need plenty of ball. Mann will have the odd run but can see him just being a link man. Not sure where his points are coming from consistently

    How is the level of confidence about the Grant swap these days? Running a makeshift 4th reserve like Walters or Keppie can do wonders for the rest of the team, and if Grant arrives to plug that hole then you are set. But getting caught out with a Walters or Keppie long term could be dangerous

    I don’t see any upside for Easy E. So many unknowns in that pack.

    That's what I'm worried about in picking Walters.

    Well if Grant doesn't arrive then you get Walters playing hooker at bottom dollar
    And if he does arrive you swap them

    For me the issue with Ese'ese isn't how much he'll score this week (I think he'll score well)

    But if he maintains is position when Sione comes back. Based on pre-season he is not first choice lock.
    Will he do enough in the couple of weeks he has to make himself first choice, or will he be bumped as soon as Sione is ready.

    For similar reasons I'm not going with Horsburgh, even though I think he'll score well

    Ese'ese will definitely hit his BE, I'm taking a punt hoping he will do better than that. If he gets back to 2018 stats I'll be happy.

    Not sure why, Brimson actually has a sample of games playing fullback where he has gone well above his price. Drinkwater currently, guesswork

    This is the way.

    The only worry is if Walters has a couple of poor scores and drops in price, and Grant has a big one off the bench for Storm. If you are tight on cash you may not be able to straight swap them, although gap in price shouldn't be too bad.
