    Will a 50k buffer be enough though? Suspect

    According to my predictions and calculations it should be more than enough.

    Doing Grant > Koro and Matterson > Moses this week leaving 505K in the bank to fund Lucy + Butcher > Tedesco + Fifita in R14 and then Young > Matterson in R15.

    Will play it by week though because the way NRL is going those plans will be out the window before the end of the week.

    Bring on footy! Today is going too slow.

    Wither Butcher's BE of 30 and Bateman's BE of 71 and 291k I really do need some luck to be able to afford Butcher --> Bateman next week. But it's a risk worth taking

    Is that ITB total a typo, or do you really have over half a million left?

    I have that money left. I built it up with the intention of trading out Butcher and Young this week for guns (by trading out Api a couple of weeks ago, wasn't that inspired). Might keep Young if he nails down the lock role though.

    I really think Young keeps that lock role. Ricky loves him and he's been great the last two weeks. If he takes that Horse role for the year out, then he's a perfect to keep, if he keeps hitting 50's that is.

    I've gone from lacking 2rfs to a plethora in a matter of weeks (which means I really should be bringing in a gun Hooker rather than Bateman this week I guess).

    Lolo, Bateman, Fifita, Carrigan, Brown & Lucy suiting up this week.

    I'd like to see where CHN fits into the rotation in a normal week where he doesn't sub on for a winger

    I would expect he spends some time in second row with Bateman into the middle, but who knows with Ricky

    All I know at the moment is Robson gets a reprieve and Grant traded instead. Still not sure whether to get two guns and play with 16 or another CTR to play 17 this week.

    FARK MOI. Can't these players just follow rules...


    Mind you… I wonder how ambiguous this rules actually are.

    Would you upgrade Fogarty to a gun if you had the chance this week or be happy he's actually playing and take slightly less points

    I'm currently thinking: Grant + Fogarty to Bateman + Moses

    Team after trades (3 trades, 36k)
    Robson
    Haas JFH
    Taumalolo Yeo Bateman
    Cleary Moses
    McIntyre Niu
    Teddy Ponga Crichton

    Carrigan Hunt Tevaga Starling
    Talau Averillo Flanagan Papenhuyzen

    Kind of do and don't want this to happen. Ruins my trade plans but I would also be a cheap 50 points scorer I picked up earlier in the season Smile. Not sure he has the minutes to do it though. only played 46 on the weekend.

    I think you've got good coverage but personally I'd probably wait a week and see what pans out with Robson and Flanagan

    Fog not an urgent trade and should beat his BE

    8 weeks to go, if Moses scores 65 and Fog 45, then that 20 pts is not huge in the scheme of things.

    That's the thing. What can they and can't they do? I'm guessing it's been explained to them but there would always be some sort of grey areas. They can't go and get food? Not even take away? They have to uber in everything or something?
