    Koro is the best value for anyone under Grants price rag isn’t he? Over 60 average for under 750k.

    For me it’s Koro or Munster, Unless I play the hit and hope trade and go for someone like Arrow

    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.

    Must have my info wrong then.

    If you were getting Lolo, just trade Grant to Lolo, done.

    I am going Tevaga and running Bunt + Tevaga as hookers. Gives me 291k to hopefully upgrade Butcher to Bateman next round

    It may well happen this way but I wouldn’t say it’s confirmed just because Wayne said so in his presser.
    He’s been known to tell plenty of porkies.

    Koro probably better for my squad balance, but not sure I can bring him back in mentally

    Just pre-weekend Jitters. I was hit super hard by TLT this week and first time ever in the top 100 and so close to top spot in Storm league so don't wanna start going backwards.

    I’ve got Jazz but still not confident he can maintain a 55 plus average in current minutes, will be tough but he has the game to do it, stuck with him at this moment. You confident in him mate?

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

    Yeah I got 8 left (6 after this week)

    Originally was playing 16, as trading out one red dot for 16. Then tentively Robson -> Moses.

    Now that it’s 2 red dots out with Grant, more inclined to play 17. Does mean waiting on a second gun but Robson probs good for 40-50 on reduced minutes anyway?

    Basically I have NFI

    I would have been ok for cover if Ponga was out this week, so it might have worked out in my favour...
    but still... it's nicer to have the option to l**p between Herbie, Averilo, and HTF

    Is DCE, Cleary, Hunt, Moses and Pearce overkill ? Laughing

    You dumping Grant? Im more worried about Koro being rested towards back end with Panthers flying and chance of re injury as he’s had a few seasons with multiple.

    Munster the same mind but a fair bit cheaper, if the extra Munster cash doesn’t help me for future trades I’ll just go Koro I think

    Any possibility Granville just shifts Robson to lock as Cotter did in some of the games before split mins

    Probably wishful thinking right??

    Just saying your logic is wrong mate because Moses should easily outpoint Siro.

    Jazz will punch out an 80+ score soon enough to bring his average right up. Might not be this weekend but no doubt it's coming.

    Yeah I'm dumping Grant. Too much cash to be sitting for 3-6 weeks, although it does leave me a little short at hooker

    At this stage I've gone Munster, which funds Bateman/McInnes rather than JTurbo/Fifita for the run home

    Resting a concern with both of them but I'll have a decent 18th man so not a huge concern

    EDIT:

    Can get either Bateman or McInnes rather than either JTurbo or Fifita, not in a position to afford both

    Not at all mate. I would rather Frizell but the idea of potentially being able to trade Butcher to Bateman next round has sold me. Could also not take the gamble and go Frizell and Dfifi next round.

    Jackson Ford a more viable trade with Vaughan out? Surely cements that lock role with lesser players coming in?
