I wish I had good HLFs.. or good WFBs.. or good Forwards.. or premier HOKs, or CTRs in general... I HAVE FUCKING NOTHING!
P. Haas, J. Taumalolo, J. Tedesco, I. Yeo
Keepers because I wont have a choice:
A. Koroisau, H. Grant, P. Carrigan, L. Mitchell, B. Best, R. Papenhyuzen, L. Leilua, E. Katoa
Players to upgrade:
J. Friend (Last Upgrade/Potential Keeper), K. Mann (Upgrade)
Broncos who need to go:
B. Croft (Upgrade), J. Isaako (Upgrade), C. Paix (Cashout)
J. Taunoa-Brown (Cashout), T. Rudolf (Cashout), J. Luai (Cashout), J. Averillo (Wont trade unless he makes bulk cash)
D. Cherry-Evans, N. Cleary, M. Moses (Would like 2)
A. Twal/C. McInnes/C. Smith/D. Cook (Twal makes sense cover wise, McInnes looks better)
All of this planning, and I still wont have a strong 17th player. I have outlined 8 trades I will need to make and I want 4 trades once my team is sorted. That means I can bring in 3 more cashcows and trade them out this year.
My 8 trade outs value roughly 3.8 million. Me wanting to trade in Ponga/McInnes/Cleary/Cherry-Evans + 4x 240k players will cost 4.5 million. So I need 3 cashcows that will earn me roughly 700k... Fuck.
Of course I can still wait on my current cows to peak which should shorten that by some margin and I dont need to buy someone like McInnes at such a premium. Guys like Pearce, Fotuaika, T. Trbojevic, Twal, J. Trbojevic, M. Taupau are on my list to look at and even keeping Friend over McInnes saves $300k. My first priority is my HLFs, which sucks cause I would like to dump Isaako first. Oh an all thid beautiful planning and I still wont have a decent 17th man. So I could forgo one of those trade outs and opt for an extra Cash cow trade and hope I make up the difference.
