    Fanhub will just let it continue with their classic "nothing to see here!" attitude.

    I think it'll depend what NRL do with the first 2 rounds - if they are void, fantasy restarts. If they count, fantasy will include them.

    Indeed. if rounds 1 and 2 count for NRL they'll count for fantasy. they might increase the number of trades we get to make before restart but can't see them making many other changes

    As Filth said based on what fanhub has done previously they will do nothing.

    I see no reason to reset if the first two rounds do count (they will).

    They might give unlimited trades for when it resumes and adjust the total trades based on how many rounds there will be + any origin considerations.

    Tbh I'd be happy if there are only 2 trades allowed for the resumption as if a normal week. The scramble will be interesting. I don't really want everyone to be able to fix their teams before round 3.

    I agree, I would prefer it to be max 2 trades for R3.

    I think if they change the way the comp works, eg introduce conferences, or particularly if they change what happens around byes/origin, then a few extra trades would be fair.

    Just giving people trades because Watkins has gone home or because Bateman is fit again isn't necessary.

    They might make some decisions with the goal of making sure all the casuals come back though, so who knows what will happen. I am not even thinking about preparing for it though until there is something concrete about how the NRL will work.

    Bateman is saying he is unlikely to be ready for Round 3, his rehab didn't go as well as hoped without staff able to work on him daily.

    I still have doubts round 3 will be in May, so not too worried about that at the moment.

    In the past couple weeks I've done literally 0 planning for any fantasy comp that isn't 2006 or MSs's historical shittos

    ARL Commissioner Wayne Pearce has confirmed the NRL has the green light from government to restart on May 28 with teams set to begin training on May 4 to prepare for the return to play. He also reiterated that the Telstra Premiership ladder would remain as it was when the competition was suspended on March 23 with all points carried over to the resumption of play.

    Yeah, even with the latest update in mind - which is essentially confirming all of what's basically already been confirmed - the moment I start looking at my fantasy team again is when it is outlined what is going to happen with Warriors, Storm and Qld teams. I still think that until that's specified its not worth looking into yet... Personally.

    If and when we're up and running again I also hope it's just two trades into round 3 as we're all in the same situation.

    I think 4 trades going into Round 3 is probable. We know the software can cope with 4 trades and I wouldn't expect Fanhub to be able to work out any additional changes. Really doubt bye rounds are going to be a thing this year, so however many rounds there are we're not going to need the extra trades to churn from Rnd12 to Rnd16 to final team.

    I wouldn’t lol, I’ve a few things to see to especially as some of the guys I have were only playing as others were injured.

    I’ll be hoping to get 4 trades.

    Everyone has more than two problems in their team. Four might make sense though.

    Assuming Origin is end of season rather than middle, I would expect them to bring forward a 5 trade round for round 3.

    I think a better and the best approach;

    - Everyone has how many trades they have now (ie 30 if you’ve used max 2 trades in each of first 2 rounds, or 32/33 for the conservative few!

    - Trades are unlimited weekly. Use 21 if you like now, you have roughly 10 left for the season

    - given it will likely be around a 16 round competition, you will still have roughly 2 per week IF you use the previous max (2) trades every week.


    This only works on the assumption there are no byes and origin.

    The above doesn’t require failhub to give any team anything.

    They just have to turn off the limiting of trades.

    So it raises a more interesting question. Of your 30-32 trades you have left now, how many would you invest in round 3?

    I’m thinking about 6;

    -Horse
    -Hess
    -Kennedy
    -Musgrove
    -Watkins


    Plus probably L.Leilua to raise funds (as the above are all pretty cheap), and plus Lucy will likely be the size of 2 houses after a lockdown
