    Have submitted a team. Was going to bring in Chris heighington after seeing his scores in the previous two weeks but it looks like he's mispelt in the spreadsheet, got no scores against him and is a paltry $495k.

    Traded out Webster, Hazem and Louis but I aint telling who I brought in. But one's a centre and ones a full back and the other is in the second row.

    Whereas I am telling everyone who I brought in, as I seem pretty locked into mid table mediocrity of 12th

    OUTS: Nathan Merritt, Michael Gordon, Kirk Reynoldson
    INS: Craig Fitzgibbon, Corey Parker, Tom Haberecht

    Literally bringing in the two best players I don't have who are playing both weeks (sorry JT and Gal), and a cashout.

    TEAM FOR R25 & R26
    Greg Inglis
    Justin Hodges
    Jarryd Hayne
    Mark Gasnier
    Steven Bell
    Trent Barrett
    Brent McConnell
    Craig Fitzgibbon
    Nathan Hindmarsh
    Lance Thompson
    Corey Parker
    Shane Webcke
    Cameron Smith
    Alan Tongue
    Sonny Bill Williams
    Dallas Johnson
    Awen Guttenbeil
    Iosia Soliola
    Brett Morris
    Chris Lawrence
    Tom Haberecht

    Soliola loops for McConnell. 3k left in the bank

    Tempted to play Morris, because Quicksand is trading him in and starting him over some other decent options, and he's been picking everything right. But I'll stick to my guns.

    my reasons for bringing in Morris;

    1. Scored 77 last week,
    2. Good price at $391K (extra 100K itb)
    3. Burt not selected for R26
    4. Collis has a bye
    5 B.Carney has a bye

    I agree re, Morris being a good pickup. Burt is playing round 26 though just off the bench so could have poor minutes.

    As someone that has owned Brett Morris since his debut(and played him for the first 6 weeks) I wouldn't feel confident selecting a bloke that score 2 points in 80 minutes round 22 just because he happened to score 2 tries round 24

    I kind of agree as a Morris owner; however given he has previously been a fantasy gun you have to consider his previous scores differently to a debutant in 2020 who we don't know their future.

    I think I’ve picked a good trade in that seems to be under the radar. But it might just end up Williamson who I thought Was a shrewd buy only to have 2 others bring in and get sub 30 scores.
    Actually Louis Anderson did the same...

    You are correct. I didn't look for him on the bench cause who puts a wing on the bench ?
    He must be there covering injury and as such he has to go !!

    What an odd looking bench for the eels Widders (fine), PJ Marsh (ok as half/hooker), Delaney (usually a centre), Burt (wing/fullback)

    Soooooo, H2H finals time........

    R23 in The CUP went on form, EasyTiger, Welshy and Moanaman all beat their opponents, the upset of the round was Camo123 tipping over HerefortheBE.

    R24 saw Ryan Hoffman screw Moanaman for the second time in this competition as Clack Bocks and White lightening take the wins.

    The Semifinals are EasyTiger vs White Lightening and Welshy vs Clack Bocks.

    Good Luck everyone!

    The Cup:
    NRLFF 2006 Fantasy thread - Round 25+26 - Championship time - Page 2 Cup11

    R23 in The Plate also went on form with this Favorites all winning.

    R24, Filth and TeethEater prevail leaving Wolfking vs TeethEater and Filthridden vs Quicksand in the semis

    The Plate:
    NRLFF 2006 Fantasy thread - Round 25+26 - Championship time - Page 2 Plate11


    In the Bowl, I felt it was a little unfair to have two Ghosts getting the chance of a Bye and going straight through to the Final by not actually contributing. So I've made an executive decision and I've "Billy Slatered" their asses and suspended them from the competition. The four remaining players, Multiple Scoregasms, Green Machine, Empty Reel and Code Delta, all had Byes and The Bowl resets from R25.

    Good Luck Lads!

    Thanks mate, that's awesome. Wow, how'd I manage to win both those match-ups?? Madness. Although, I think I am about to get thoroughly wolfed.

    Good luck, Wolfking. Please trade poorly this round. You know I will. Wink

    MoanaMan may have only had two PODs, but he picked the right one's for R23:
