    From the homepage, if you click on a game to bring up the match centre, the 'matches' bar at the top disappears and the only way to get back to the list of games is to go back to the homepage.

    Yep. For a professional organisation, you'd expect a bit of I dotting and T crossing.

    Do you not give credibility to those that own Lomax? Thinking I might be trying to throw people off before he plays Titans? pirat

    Seriously though, I'd just go for Latrell. Or Best if you reckon he can find the line regularly alongside guys like Ponga, Pearce etc. Entirely possible imo.

    Full credit to those that own and started with him. Us none owners are playing catch up.

    Appreciate the input, will most likely stick with Latrell.

    R6 predictions:

    Drinky: 43
    Latrell: 69

    Edit: Do we think dragons will be doing much tackling against the Titans? haha

    No worries mate. No credit needed for Lomax, he's been a lucky pick considering we got him as a FB and then moved to the dud positions of WG/CTR and feels like a fluke every week he goes 30+. More people would've jumped off after Rd 2 if he didn't jag that gimme on the wing.

    *Or was it Rd 1 he got the gimme? Either way, I'm not that confident in him.

    Only hesitation with Robson is if Val didn't go down last week, could have seen cotter spend time at HKR.

    Looks like Green has shored up his backs with Hampton on bench this week, but wouldn't be entirely surprised if he comes on for ReRo at some point.

    Would be straight on him otherwise

    I started with Lomax but nothing about the way he plays makes me feel confident every time I look at him in my team. I'm just hoping the 40's can continue, but personally, I would even consider bringing him in.

    Fantasy aside - Lomax was one of the Dragons best in their win last week. He and Frizell consistently put pressure on with good kick chase and put the Sharks on the back foot to begin every set. I think he's safe in his position on his defence alone.

    I didn't pick Lomax because I thought he'd suck at fullback. I was right but I didn't see him putting out 40+'s no matter where he plays from there.

    Oh well I stick by what I thought. Okay player, great fantasy scorer.

    The reason he wouldn't go back there is that earlier in the year Saints were shit and, as soon as they stuck Hunt at hooker, they weren't.

    Hunt might not start at hooker, but he's going to be playing 60+ minutes there from now on. McInnis might fill in for 20 but he'll play most of the rest of the game as a small lock, Murray/Radley/Tevaga style. McInnis might get spelled for a bit and there's the 20 minutes when he's at hooker, but whoever "replaces" Graham isn't in for a big role imo.
    Yeah with McInnes moving to lock, Dragons are essentially playing a 4 forward bench. Kerr started last week and got very few minutes.

    Lomax did look good in the game last week, no doubt he'll pick up some tries sooner than later.

    I'm not doing myself any good by talking him up and not owning him. Embarassed

    Holy hell, wasn't aware. Don't look at premixes any more becoz of the exorbitant pricing. Might give in.

    Both rounds. Rd 1 opponent dropped the ball on the goal line, he picked it up and scored. Rd 2 his center instead of scoring himself with an open line, passed to Lomax instead.

    Yep, the navigation on both nrl.com and fantasy nrl is pretty counter intuitive and all round abysmal but pop over and have a look at the afl.com.au website. It's even worse. They don't even have the upcoming fixtures on the homepage. You can either click a link from a dropdown menu or use an annoying pop up on the main page that only shows the next immediate game.

    1 trade for RnT's team atm but I can't see a 2nd trade so might just save a trade because pre round 6 he only has 16 trades:

    Capewell out - L. Mitchell in - leaves 30k bank

    Koroisau
    Haas (c), Carrigan
    Taumalolo, Yeo, L. Leilua
    Cleary, Fogarty
    L. Mitchell, S. Crichton
    Turbo, Pappy, Drinkwater

    Friend, Grant, Robson, E. Katoa
    HTF, Paix, Luai, Wiliame

    Is there any other potential trade that you see. I would like to sell Drinkwater but there are no real options for 509k. I suppose if L. Leilua is out I could sell him to Macca but that would give me 4 hookers on the bench. Cheers.

    Drinkwater having a stinker last week has really messed with my plans. Gonna do capewell to latrell like a lot of people. But not sure about 2nd trade.

    Do we think Drinkwater has to go, or more important to bring in a gun like teddy, ponga, or DCE?
