    So who are the most financially vulnerable clubs? Sharks have been on the brink for a few years and everyone is aware of that... who else is in the bottom four or five?

    One of the scenarios I foresee is some clubs folding or merging.
    12 team comp is a real possibility out of this though I really, really, really hope it doesn't come to that :/

    I think the same for Yeo and JFH. I’m keen to jump on Yeo and Tatola. I have to get rid of big Herman

    Not yet. The question was if he continues to play under 50 minutes. It’s too soon for that!

    I gave Herman big wraps on here, so my apologies for the bum steer. I don't know why he didn't get minutes in the 2nd half. I thought he was low risk as I was expecting him to reach his BE at least, but all we got was sour grapes.
    The only redeemable thing about it is that there is about $500k to play with.

    Definitely Perham. Played the trial when Hiku injured and shadowed RTS all week. Milne was also in the 21 this week.

    I work for a medium sized multinational and they just announced over the weekend that all staff that can work from home will work from home globally.

Low ownership players stinking it up (and seconds from EZY being my only flop Sad ). I know it’s only round 1 and the consensus will be to play it calm, but I am thinking of doing the unspeakable by pulling funds from my team for corrections. If I didn’t have two gun centres (also have Aubbs Love  ). I probably wouldn’t, but at this point it’s looking pretty frivolous when I need to put cash elsewhere. I have BJ Leilua set to play today but I could swap him for Musgrove and play Wiliame instead (currently in my NPRs). This frees up cash so that essentially instead of doing Wakeham>Mann (just about my only move atm), I can do Wakeham>Isaako (via Drinkwater). Leaves no WFB/CTR cover on my bench but my team looks a great deal stronger and I pick up the only real “must-haves” for my mind for the round (also doing Ezy>Horse).

    Tl;dr
    BJ Leilua + Mann upvote
    Wiliame + Isaako downvote

    Is your score that poor?  I'm 50 points under par from just about every other poster that's posted scores and now thinking of downgrading Lomax to Walters and play Wiliame for some funds.  Dunno if that's wise.  I have Stimson, Hess and Williams stinking it up.

    Sharks own their ground, recently purchased a golf club and have money coming in from the development so should be ok
    They would have budgeted for the next 2 years not having a 'home' ground and leagues club etc anyways (Which they are compensated by the developers), so this probably effects them less than some others
    Though once the dominoes begin to fall who knows what will be left once this is over

    Curious to see how Walters goes today. He's got 40% ownership, but may not be in everyone's 17.

    I agree Murray should say to Wayne unless I play lock I'm off to another club.

    Same for me, was told to work home on friday and have never even worked at home before this.
    Work in a trade sales role for a large door hardware company
    Guessing they want to squeeze as much cash out of the door before the worksites close as someone rocking up with corona's would mean complete shutdown
    Given its sickpay or annual leave then not going to argue here.

    Bascially if you have a computer/mobile then they don't want you there, leaving the warehouse to itself and work shifts to avoid contact with each other.
    Its purely about cash and not welfare but it is what it is

    Cancelled my foxtel sports yesterday which ends in 2 weeks, might as well save some $$$ when nothing to watch

    Well just going to enjoy the last couple games for a while, feel a little empty inside watching the other games,
    Probably shouldn't have gone ahead but at least we got some fun in building our fantasy teams and seeing them get one week

    Do players see lock as a 'better' position than edge back row? Or is that just a fantasy projection

    I would they get paid more at lock. Imo locks the better position because you're always involved in the game whereas on the edge sometimes you are doing nothing because the flow of the game is on the other edge.
