    Sternum injuries have lingered for other players in recent seasons, have they not?

    Why do I have a gut feel Lomax is going sub 20 again tonight?

    Until the 70th minute where he will score 30 in the last 10 minutes

    If he's going the big minutes I'm interested, but don't want to watch him ride the pine for half the game.

    This is why I am waiting a week. Just not sure... With Te’o, TPJ, Offa, Oates (soon), Hopo, Bullemor all hanging around it’s hard to see both 2RF going the full 80 week in week out

    Don't talk me out of Fifita. I am already conflicted on if I should get D. Fifita, Tevega, Murray, or wait a week and get Twal

    Coz he's playing the Roosters? Or because the Rabbits stopped his scoring streak? Nah actually he'll be fine! 2 or 3 times he nearly went in last week but for an intercept

    He'll be in a loop for me tonight. If he bombs, it's Hammer Time. Would love to go through with my toughts on trading him out, but the way it's going, probably will bite me in the ass down the line.

    In games not effected by injury since the restart, Munster averages 61, Moses 55

    Both have a high ceiling and have potential banners in them. Moses seems to have a slightly lower floor though.

    I've had Moses all week , but thinking of switching to Munster.

    I think it depends on whether you think Parra will go on a run in the last 2 months. Moses got a lot of his big scores last year on the back of big Parra wins at a packed Bankwest stadium - can they repeat that?

    Munster more likely to get rested - although having just missed 2 weeks due to injury he's less likely to get a rest than some of the other big names.

    short term I'd rate Munster in the absence of Cam Smith to put up some good scores.

    Moses has been lacking a bit of spark... Munster might be better value.
    But saying that, Moses can easily find a purple patch.

    Mate had one and had to get needled up every game for rugby for about 18 months. Depending on severity it could stick around all year

    Carrigan
    Munster

    83k itb and 3 trades left

    Don't love the protection I've got from 18-21 but rolling the dice and hoping Randell gets back into contention at some point

    Depends whether you want to keep Sironen in 17 long term

    You could use bank and get Cook/McInnes for Grant but would be left with Sironen in 17 or could do something like Grant to Tevaga which would leave enough to upgrade Randall to cheap gun (Moses/Munster) in future weeks and then take Sironen out of 17
    Mate I’m thinking maybe going Grant to Taumalolo still leaving me with 6 trades and 179k spare. I can then look to move Lucy on to a McInnes kind of player next week possibly can just make that happen. If not Koro is another option. So I can bring in a second hooker next week. I just can’t pass up Lolo at just under 850k and can still run this out this week:

    Hunt
    Haas MoFo
    Murray Taumalolo Yeo
    Cleary Pearce
    Aubusson Crichton
    Teddy Latrell Ponga

    Carrigan Taupau Lucy Sironen
    Hammer Pap Randall Niu

    I was keen on getting Starling but Knights hooker position is cursed so who knows Randall may be back in a week or 2 like Bethany says. My depth isn’t the best but I think I’m running out a solid side this week amongst the carnage.

    Some will be down to 2-3 trades after this week or less to and every trade is crucial. Randall to Starling would’ve been a luxury trade for depth but I guess I can worry about that in the coming weeks carnage.

    Thoughts on all this?

    Also Haas I think I’ll captain but I’m mighty tempted by Lolo

    Whichever way I go, wouldn't be surprised to be wrong

    @Rabbits21 Those trade plans look fine.

    Grant to Lolo is a winner, and then look to boost hooking stocks next week

    Depth is fine, there's not a lot of people better, and there are plenty who are worse off.

    With Rabbits short a forward and in the headlines this week, plus Broncos NEEDING this win I am backing Haas for a big win. Fifita back will pump the boys up and I reckon Haas will be raring to go. Haas captain for a solid 91 this week

    Funny, I'm considering captaining Fifita for the same reason.

    Luai/Talau are currently my 17th/18th man, and i only have 3 trades left after trading out Havili & Grant

    This week, should i get Tevaga + have 230k next week to upgrade Luai

    or go straight to cook, and then just hold luai for several weeks

    My face is exploding. I have 18 fit dudes, for now, for this week, so I'm just going to hold Grant week and see what Fifita, Tevaga, Moses, Brooks, Bateman, Munster, and probably others I can't think of do.

    I think, that's what I'll do. Maybe.
