    yes that's the trade-off of pushing the envelope. It was a stupid thing to do alright.

    Carrigan = 60 mins (beast)
    Ese'ese = 25 mins (wtf O'Brien taking the piss)
    I. Papalii = 42 mins (the sooner Tevaga is back the better)
    Knight = 48 mins (great 2nd stint)
    J. Williams = 61 mins (60 mins is great for him)
    Yeo = 80 mins (injuries to Tetevano & Kikau helped)
    Radley = 55 mins (he is so over-hyped)
    I thought Tapine was starting lock for Canberra

    Agree with everything else

    Would you guys trade out one of Musgrove or Kerr to get Walters and if so, which one?

    The 3 "edge" options played big minutes (Murray 70, Su'a 70, Lowe 55). Add in 50 for Tatola and 50 for Turgess and there isn't much left to spread around
    Fair enough, thanks for that

    Do you think this will continue throughout the season or will Knight get more minutes?

    Definitely Kerr

    Musgrove will be amazing this year for both Tigers and Fantasy

    Walters looks like a great option with Reynolds not being on the bench

    What do you think Horsburgh’s role and minutes will be when Bateman gets back?

    Well if he continues to play like that he might keep his starting spot & Bateman will replace Tapine in the 13 & Tapine back to bench. It's as if Ricky had Horsburgh in his fantasy team & he named him in the 2nd row to stop people buying him & nek minute Horsburgh starts at lock. If Horsburgh keeps the lock position when Bateman returns I expect 55-60 mins.

    Is Beale fit or injured? I assume he would be one of the two picked.

    Tapine was named at lock & Horsburgh 2fr but once the game started they swapped positions.

    I was thinking this as well
    Does anybody know why he didn’t get the minutes we all hoped for?

    Because people had unrealistic expectations of how long he'd play.

    Murray is the Souths lock, so you had to assume Knight would sub off to let Murray go there and then have a second stint later at prop.


    As MS said, he beat his BE by 6 points, I don't know why people are panicking. I would rather have had Haas, but the extra funds let me get a stronger team elsewhere, and I am happy enough with 45 from a player priced under 40.

    Thanks to the excellent advice on this forum (one was Milchy advising me to swap a couple of players resulting in me dumping Stimson), I'm on 797 with Pappy and Walters to go - even 80 form the 2 of them and I'll get to 880.

    Better than last year's train wreck.Beer

    Pompey, Perham, Milne, Beale, Berry are the likely options in that order. I think Beale is injured though?

    Tossing up between Musgrove and Walters for that last spot in the 17.

    Also, one car-crash was trading Lucy to Hess just before the Cows played... affraid so, who do I kick the big spud out for? $105k ITB so can go anyone up to $570k

    Su'a didn't exactly set the world on fire.
    Yeo, if I can still afford him?
    Lucy? We'll see after the Tigers game...

    I suspect Bennett will come to his sense and move Murray back to permanent lock within a few weeks. Getting 25 ineffective minutes on the edge just so he is on the field longer doesn't seem worth it for me. I would also suspect the two starting edges to play 80 most weeks.

    With Su'a, Lowe and Cook getting 80 and Murray 60 that leaves 180 minutes to split between Tatola, Knight, Turgess, Sele and Nicholls most weeks. How that actually gets split is anyones guess

    I agree Murray is such a waste on an edge, looked like he wasn’t comfortable at all. Bennett is a stubborn bugger though he’ll probably persist just out of spite
