    Team score of 928 and placed at 186 overall

    A) Stimson and Musgrove > Flegler and Guler - 9K remaining
    B) Stimson > Flegler - 76K remaining
    C) Stimson > Guler - 172K remaining
    D) Musgrove > Guler - 26K remaining
    E) Hold trades - 93K remaining

    Want Isaako but can't afford it. Hopefully Drinkwater pulls out a 60+ score this week against the doggies.

    Do hope Aekins gets dropped for Crichton. Kid looked electric. And also good for my fantasy. If gets the nod, a straight swap for me

    My considered trade since last game is Williams>Isaako. Williams I had taken out last day for first time since original draft but found his way back in

    Edwards due back in R3... If anything I wouldn't be surprised to see Crichton take Whare's spot. He was atrocious on the weekend. 2 runs, 14mg, 11tck with 2 missed. In a winning side he did ntohing....

    Yeah not sure in Williams myself. I feel he might float around the 35-40 average. Looking at stats he looks as though he has those missed tackles and errors in his game and it's not like the missed tackles go unnoticed. I think Stevie Wonder would've been able to see his missed tackles. The minutes are there which is nice but are there too many errors? I don't think he is a big concern at the moment but will definitely need some improvement around the ruck.

    COVID-19 UPDATES:

    The Sydney Roosters have implemented body temperature testing for every player and staff member that enters its Moore Park offices in their bid to combat coronavirus fears.

    Roosters veteran Mitchell Aubusson confirmed the club had put tight plans around the access of visitors and staff.

    Any person who tests more than the average body temperature of 36-37 degrees will be turned away.

    Aubusson said any talk around the possibility of shifting the entire competition to North Queensland had not been discussed with the players.

    Warriors CEO details loan discussion
    New Zealand Warriors CEO Cameron George confirmed on Tuesday afternoon that he is in discussions with multiple clubs about the idea of bringing in players on loan to bolster their squad in Australia.

    While he wouldn't confirm which clubs or players had been involved in talks so far, George said there was little chance rival clubs would part with frontline talent and that any loanees would likely be players who don't feature regularly at first-grade level right now.

    As it stands the Warriors have 24 fit players with them on the Gold Coast, but only 20 of them are on NRL contracts.

    He confirmed the NRL has granted the club permission to play development players Rocco Berry, Paul Turner, Tom Ale and Adam Tuimavave-Gerrard this weekend despite them sitting outside their top 30 squad.

    It is kind of bullshit. They kind of get guilt tripped into staying otherwise the side is out of the comp or they get replaced by other random players. A shitty situation.

    Yeah its pretty shitty, although at the same time, perhaps they dint understand the implications of leaving.

    Initially there were a number of players that said they wanted to go home after their round 2 commitment, now it looks like they will stay for as long as it takes.

    It is a tough one though, the NRL have fucked this up so badly they are now in a spot where they have to compromise the lives of a whole bunch of people and the Warriors are worst affected. Most of these guys have to look after and support far more than most too, so the financial pressure will be massive, but at the same time, the pressure to be home will also be massive - Rock and a hard place huh!!

    I agree it is a shitty situation but I've changed my tune a little. While schools/unis/shops/restaurants/public transport are open, I think the NRL has to press on. The NRL is making their health a priority so I don't see that as a big concern. They're avoiding the public, taking chartered flights, isolating themselves, everything that is necessary. The players will be in a worse situation if the game goes broke. Many of them get paid more than we do so are in a much better financial situation to work around their short term difficulties, sure there are players that aren't paid well but they can band together as a community and look after each other. (just as people in the local community are helping out the elderly/etc right now)

    There will be far, far more people in worse situations because they've been left without work/etc.

    Things will probably be much different in two weeks time anyway.

    Warriors owner Mark Robinson says the club will remain in Australia for as long as it takes to ensure it remains involved in this year’s NRL competition.
