    You recon old stubborn wayno will give up on his great plan this early in the year? Would be a big call but massive game against the chooks and in my opinion the right call. Try telling the old man that though

    There was this tweet after the game (presumably from the press conference) stating Latrell could be moved to CTR

    Yeah, I don't see Wayne giving up this early. Burns out with AJ at the back and Latrell in the centres, plus Murray to lock and Knight to prop and the team I think would really benefit.

    Shitt.... Was going OK until Burns and Croft screwed me. I can probably carry Croft for a couple weeks with Luai and Walters in the EMG's. Hopefully he's not bad. I can't see any other halves I like at a similar value ATM. Maybe Wakeham if Lewis is dropped.

    Burn's has to go. I dropped Lomax over him!!! Wrong call there ha. At least I dumped Stimson. Could go back to Lomax, but a couple easy tries boost his scores. Looked better yesterday on the wing, but Dufty did well too.

    Could possibly go Croft to Wakeham, and then spend up to $600k on a new centre. Trouble is no one is standing out.

    AJ will be solid but he won’t provide more in attack than Latrell.

    Latrell needs time. Latrell showed very good signs in the first half last night and was an improvement on round 1. His second half was trash though.

    I’d dump Burns, move Campbell to centre and AJ to wing. In the game though AJ can shift to the back at times when needed.

    In regards to fantasy I’m sitting on 7/429 C with Knight letting me down.

    Souths supporters just need to realise we don’t have a quality pack this season.

    Souths pack is not the problem. Its leadership, from Bennett down. His rotations are plain stupid, the new captain isnt a great leader, they lost a lot of experience and they all look around waiting for someone else to step up. They will make the 8 based on talent but wont threaten a premiership

    Bennett may need to do the switcheroo between AJ and LM during the game a few times, if he really wants to persist with Latrell.

    I find it funny how Lomax has copped a fair bit of criticism on the forum, but still manages to do well in fantasy

    On Lomax every fantasy season there's always a couple of players that benefit from extreme good luck & Lomax is one with 2 tries out of the blue that were gifted to him. It reminds me of J. Wallace a couple of years ago when at the start of the season he was getting big minutes because the Titans forwards were getting injured early in the game & not returning.
    Haas pulled finger in the 2nd half with 36 points & at least he hit 50 points. We said it last year that his floor seems to be 50 points. There's just so many workers in that pack so the points are more spread out. Flegler out gunned all the big names in the forwards & I'll be looking at Knight to Flegler next week depending on tlt.
    Knight was pretty disappointing so he's on the chopping block.
    Cleary what a gun I've got to find a way to get him into my team.
    My decision today will be whether to sell Aubusson to J. Hughes or save a trade.

    This article is about coronavirus, but it also says a lot about how fantasy coaches view their predictions
