    If you want McInnes, get him now. Otherwise you'll be paying a shitload more, or waiting ages for a price drop that might take a long time to come.

    Cleary is not as urgent, and there are more halves who score at an equivalent level that can be picked instead

    A lot of teams won't have the cash to do so, at least not without killing their team balance in the process.

    I picked Tedesco last week, so McInnes was a no go this week for me, even if Capewell was still fit and firing. Hopefully Teddy works out in the long run.

    Does anyone have all of Haas, Taumalolo, McInnes and Teddy right now? The're probably in a good position (assuming the rest of their team isn't total garbage)

    Different coach too and some may argue a better, stronger, tougher, well performing team.

    I'm not feeling Cleary much this year. Would love Giraffe Neck, but I'll take a punt on Pearce. Mann next to him helps his kick metres too. Just want to sure up my halves and not worry about Paix/Luai.

    US sports analytics is so far ahead of what we see here. Doesn't always mean it's right (the beauty of sport is that it can defy logic) but WAR, VORP and other Sabermetrics really bring another level to how players and teams are evaluated

    That's the big 4 really isn't it?

    I'm missing Ted from those. As mentioned I got Pearce, but inside I'm still wondering if finding coin to turn Nofo into Ted is the best move, and running with a spud half.

    Last year his big scores came from a massive try scoring run

    He's getting 50s mainly through base (KM & tackles) so it looks sustainable

    Also doesn't have threat of Origin this year, and was under injury cloud last year during Origin period

    Agreed, with the base stats looking good I think(hope) he can keep up a 50 average which makes him good value at this current price. Compared to spending another $200k on a DCE/Cleary who are priced around 60 and unlikely to average higher than that. I'll take Pearce to partner Moses and take the cash to upgrade other areas (WFB)

    it will be interesting to see if McInnes will continue to score as high as he does.

    Nope - Haas, Taumalolo, Teddy and Ponga. McInnes would require trading another solid scorer and leaving me thin in 2rf. If he were DPP HOK/2rf I would have considered it this week.

    He showed in the first half last week that he will have lower scores this season.

    I would like Cookie in at some point.

    Lol well I was jealous when Teddy pumped out that ton on Monday. I guess I’m just banking on being able to pick up both he and Ponga once my cows have peaked and their prices dropping possibly but it might backfire on me

    Did get a try last week which was about 18 points.

    Guess he still would have scored around 68 without it.. think he's priced about 70 now anyway.

    As a non owner i'll just be happy for him to score sub 70's.. as long as my other guys continue to put up good scores (yeo/mofo/etc)

    I don't have Ponga and Teddy either, so I am probably hoping for a bit much to go my way now...

    Is Clune worth the extra 33k over HTF? 30 base stat average last 2. Job security?? Could he be dropped and Hunt move back to half etc?

    In the Jai Arrow presser he talked a fair bit about the halves and to me there is no suggestion Fogarty isn't their man going forward.

    I called him out on this in a FB group and he admitted that he hadn't considered Roberts as utility. As always "late mail" is just someone elses opinon

    If he didn't get that try his score would have been right down. Although in a Haas way where even his low scores are good.

    I don't think any player that isn't Haas can sustain 80's.

    Worth noting that with Mann as his halves partner, Pearce averaged 420 kick metres per game vs 340 in games with a different partner. Excluding injury he averaged 423 per game with Mann as halves partner this year. An extra 4 points per game in base makes him a little safer, although tackle numbers are probably unsustainable

    Lino was a terrible halves partner for Pearce.

    Bring in as many of the big $ guns as you can (Teddy, McInnes etc) and likely not have so much cash to bring in keepers elsewhere.

    Try and aim for cut-price potential keepers when they appear.

    I'm not sure there's enough wiggle room to do both quickly.

    In second camp for me. I see a lot in the first camp that appear to be getting too many cash out type players which will leave dead spots very early. Running short on trades and not having a decent 18-21 is a recipe for disaster. It doesn't matter how good your team looks if you are running out 14 players for the last 4 weeks

    I feel Robson proved he can play 80 last week. If they are planning to give him a spell Cotter would still be at 14. Hampton is there as injury cover. If Robson does blow out and need a rest then sure Hampton can sub him but I dont feel that would be a planned move

    I think Hampton is there in case either of the rookie backs falter. They know he can be plugged in and do a job at the back. If things work well and they aren't a concern he has spent time off the bench at hooker before

    Agree. That #14 spot is pretty much where Hampton is best suited. He can cover everywhere, but he's not really good enough at any one position to start there and play 80.
