    Re. Grant?

    Minor knee surgery apparently. 3-4 weeks.

    Well fuck is anyone holding Grant?

    Looking at Grant + Best for Moses + D. Fifita then. Tevaga is really interesting though.

    Then have to choose 2 of Starling, Mann, and Young.

    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.

    Yeah, I know I'm over optimistic but you never know I guess. At least he's given us an extra week or two really.

    Were there any Munster/Moses TU/TD threads going I could sneak a peak at? I am leaning to Munster, purely because I think almost will go Moses (and also I started the year with Moses so it feels better to grab Munster psychologically, especially since I’ve never had him in my fantasy side before so it’s far more exciting!)

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


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

    I think the rules were relaxed and then have been re-enforced recently - that might be the confusion?

    Like when Best self reported the issue was he went to his parents house - if they’d met at his house or a cafe it was ok. Now cafes are not ok again.

    I could be getting this wrong - piecing it together from stuffed I’ve only skimmed hahaha.

    We can all agree Vaughan using a fake name is another level and probably warrants further punishment than quarantine. I even thought the Dragons were a chance tonight before this Sad

    They can get take away which is why it is implied in Weidlers tweet that there shouldn't be any problem.

    I did one and this morning when I checked it was 10-5 Moses

    Definitely sounding like Murray to an edge with Knight at lock. Johns to come in on the bench.

    If I get Munster instead of DCE I could probably afford Grant+Ikuvalu to McInnes+Ponga and coast with 4 trades left

    Have been sitting here thinking to myself…. Moses as a final 17 bench player is yuck.. but the more I think about, without his injury game he is averaging 57 points per and had 5 scores below 50 this year… I reckon he will average 55+ for the rest of the year and suffice as a great bench/loop option

    At this point my final bench will be Koro Carrigan Sironen Moses.... Hope Sironen locks down the edge roll and goes on to average 45 for the rest of the year

    Has anyone read the crystal ball as to whether D.Fifi is likely to go 80 (or close to), or if they'll likely ease him in over the course of a couple of games?

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

    Incorrect mate, Wayne confirmed at his presser today Johns will start for Su’a.

    Can you help me with your advice for my side please? I have had a busy today and have only just caught up on everything. I have just hit the reverse trades button as well, starting from scratch.

    In the same boat myself but with only 5 trades leaning towards playing 16 rather then trading in a centre for a week only.

    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

    Think I'm going Grant to Tevaga and Luai to Munster. Leaves 423K to upgrade Fog and Young next week. Just feels weird running with no HOK cover for a week.

    Tevaga
    Haas Taupau
    Lolo Jurbo Young
    DCE Moses
    Lomax Mitchell
    Teddy Ponga Talau

    Carrigan Munster Fog Pap

    Siro HTF Randall Niu

    7 trades 423K

    Moses is 100% a final 17 player! Must have rocks in your head boy, you were happy to run Siro there but not Moses?

    @Rabbits21 wrote:Fuck me I have just reversed all trades.

    Any advice would be appreciated please, have 7 trades and 236k spare:

    Team is:

    Grant
    Haas MoFo
    Lucy Murray Yeo
    Cleary Pearce
    Latrell Aubusson
    Teddy Ponga Pap

    Hunt Carrigan Taupau Sironen
    S. Crichton Randall Hammer Niu

    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

    I'm holding Grant but only because I only have four trades left and I can field 17 without trading him.
