    Have considered doing this for both Best and Mitchell this week. And passing on HTF.

    You realise fantasy players are probably more desperate for this information than the clubs themselves.

    I doubt Madge is texting Luciano every hour to see how the ankle is going

    You realise fantasy coaches are coaches too right?  Laughing

    If anyone has Madge's number I'll contact him directly then.

    Yeah I'm assuming he's a late out. I've got Carrigan to take his spot with Rudolf as a starter in the FRF. With Carrigan locking out tonight I can't take the risk.

    On top of that I've got HTF in my starting 17, hopefully he does well this week as I'll be looking at doing some upgrades in the WFB next week

    Yeah, I have Lucy at 17 but need to decide between Rudolf, Paix, Herbie and Luai to put at 18. Not sure if I risk Paix at 18 incase I actually need a decent 18th man.

    I've got my l**p set up as 19th man this week assuming Leilua is out. If Luai posts a decent score he gets 18th man (via red dot to 18), if not Fogarty gets the job

    I've traded RFM in to cover Lucy, with JTB to come in off the bench if he's out

    If Lucy plays I may reverse RFM and bring someone else in. RFM might be too midrangery to spend a trade on as I'll almost certainly have to trade him out at some point - but for now need the 2RF cover and he is a chance at averaging as high as 50 so might pay off.

    haha wow, just had a look, i'm at 12.

    few fairly popular players among those sides so i assume most teams will have a fair chunk go round.

    OK here's a fun point of interest:

    I have 15 trades left after my trades this weekend.
    If I decide to save 5 trades for the run home that means I have 10 trades left to get to my final squad.
    Potentially, I need to be happy with 12 of my current squad sticking around for the season if I am making two trades to bring in a keeper (1x cashout, 1xkeeper).

    My top 14 would currently be:

    Haas
    Taumalolo
    Ponga
    Moses
    Grant
    Koroisau
    Friend
    McCullough
    Fotuaika
    Tommy Turbo
    Katoa
    Lucy
    Carrigan
    Best

    Paix, Crichton, HTF are currently in my 17 and in need of upgrades. I might trade Paix to Pearce next round if that's looking doable.

    Having a closer look at Pearce - he definitely gets through a lot more kicking metres when he's partnered with Kurt Mann in the halves. I'm thinking he'll average in the low 50s this year if Mann can stay on the field. Falls short of the top echelon of guns in the halves but definitely worth consideration given his current price point.

    Have Lucy at 17.
    If Paix goes 40+ and Lucy is out ill leave it like that. If not then ill choose between Drinkwater and HTF to replace Lucy

    Mann to Pearce will be less than 50k next week and very tempting

    If I still had Mann in my team, I would be all over that trade.

    I'll be milking Mann for all I can before upgrading to a gun half.

    Next week Mann is likely to be priced at or around his final price. The bump from the 70 in round 3 will be just about maxxed out and he'll be ideal for a trade out (unless he bumps out another 70, in which case we can just sit back and enjoy the ride)

    Quick shout out to everyone on here.

    I am ranked just outside the top 1000 and there are still 42 coaches ahead of me in the FOG.

    NRLFF is having a great year.

    Most importantly, Welshy is still ranked below me Very Happy

    Meaney will go onto the wing mate for C. Crichton.

    I’m pretty confident Hopoate stays at fullback. My heart was set on Latrell the last day or 2 but now I’m looking at my team and realising that Paix and Luai probs aren’t gonna make quite as much as I’d like and going Hopoate over Latrell does save me 68k as well. Hopoate should average around 40ish as well.
