    For reals though, Williams and Hughes both looked good. But maybe their high tackle counts look unsustainable for halves. Williams won’t get two line breaks every week and Hughes won’t get two try assists. I think Hughes looked better of the two because his unexpected component was more kick metres than Munster, and if he continues being the dominant kicker, it’s a +10 point boost. I am going to give them both another week to see if it’s repeatable though, because if those stats dry up and tackle counts reduce, they may still regress to being only slightly below value

    I agree te Hughes. That game was a slug fest which lead to a high tackle count. Those 2 TAs were brilliant but that won't be every game they strip the numbers and kick to Suliasi. But great confidence, good KMs. He's on the watchlist

    I would probably assume that if they were to bow out of the comp the NRL would more than likely impose some form of financial ramificiations* and I think the Warriors head office know they probably can't afford that and would most likely fold from the NRL if that were to happen.... making way for a Perth or Central QLD team to come into the mix.

    *I have no idea what the financial ramifications of them bowing out will be but I assume there would be some. They can't not play and get paid the same amount of money that the teams that are still playing are getting paid.

    No doubt about all of that but what a shitty choice. Either keep your job or see your family. Which one will it be boys?

    7 missed tackles obviously the killer, I didn't watch him closely enough to see how much of that was David Fifita

    I don't have him, but I'd stick with him another week.

    He was defending Haas and Fifita.... Don't care how fit you got over pre-season, stuff having that as your first game lol

    I don't have him but I thinks he's a better bet than the guy I have (Stimson)

    Any Friend owners moving him on? I want to go to Horsy. If they have the same roles as R1 they should score the same but obviously Hors has the more value

    A) overachieved in their scoring and are actually looking worse than everyone else is thinking or
    B) slightly unders for their hoped scoring but you expect they will come right (like Twal last year)

    For me:
    A) Lomax - won’t be getting 2 try saves (12 points) and a gifted try every week. Worst running meters of any fullback in the comp by a mile. Overachieved this week for scoring, a sell despite his reasonable score. Pleased I don’t have him

    B) Hess - got 80 mins, won’t be trying to Mark David Fifita every week, this week plays the bulldogs. Is he against that chump Stimson? Hold for a good score this week.
    Jmk- got 80 minutes, should have had a try assist and lba if Elliott didn’t screw it up. First game back from major surgery and still wasn’t subbed by the coach. Hold

    I agree re: Lomax. He needs to get involved, run the ball son.
    Also Norman doesn't seem to be good at linking with his fullback or ctr. Williame got no early ball

    Thinking of going Musgrove to Guler... Lose 60K but gain hopefully a constant role player off the bench and some great cash gains with a negative BE

    Do you already have Flegler? Feel like these are the type of players I don't grab due to JS and output concerns but end up going well and launching Top teams even further from me :/

    Thinking of bringing in Flegler and Isaako for Levi and Stimson.

    Only problem is that it would bump my bronco count to 5 along with Haas, Carrigan and Fifita.

    Anyone in a similar situation?

    @Shady2K wrote:Those with Su'A and/or Levi. Thoughts on trading or holding at this stage?

    Trade targets would probably be Guler for $ itb + cash generation, or Horsburgh for good points + cash gen. Obviously wary of returning Raiders in the coming weeks - assuming comp continues as normal

    I would be flicking Su'A tbh. Holding Levi myself because he shouldn't lose too much cash and won't be playing Storm every week. But if I don't see improvement in 2 weeks he'll be getting moved on

    Stuck with Wiliame and Lomax as my starting centres. Yuck! Might downgrade Su'A or J.Williams just to get Wiliame off the park. Most likely ill trade Su'A. I dont really want to but Wiliame starting looks terrible and im not confident in Lomax either.

    George WIlliams was just an annoying price in Fantasy

    Had him in VSDT and SC where they priced him cheap, but wasn't willing to gamble in Fantasy.
    Not sure if he'll sustain that scoring, so I think I'll pass, but well done anyone who took the punt

    I'm on 4 broncos after bringing Flegler in for Ese'ese. I was tempted by Horsburgh, but I think Flegler can make a similar amount of $$$ for cheaper.

    I already have Horsburgh. I might actually go Yeo instead of Flegler because of job security if I can be confident on him continuing to play 80 mins.

    No I don't have flegler. Got 928 in R1 and currently sitting at 186 but I feel these are the types of players that will have already kick started their money making journey and will also see good scores, even if it is for limited weeks their coin generation will allow for an easier upgrade when the time comes. I feel these are the times that really filter the front runners from the ones catching up.

    So I feel making a change like this now is better for the long run.

    There's been years where I have had DCE, Taupau, Jurbo, Turbo and Fainu and had no worries as they were always getting the high attacking scores. Broncos played with a tonne of confidence on the weekend and they are a very attack minded team, so no problem holding 4-5 players.
