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

    No doubt about that... was more the mentality of having a HLF on the bench over a mid range 2RF/FRF such as Thompson. I just wasn't feeling fulfilled until I slapped meself in the head.

    The way mary is talking up sailor I think it’s risky, sounds like sailor will come on in the halves, hunt hooker and mciness lock again

    Thoughts on Bateman vs Cook? I have Tevaga to move down to hooker so hooking depth isn't too much of a worry.

    Just trying to weigh up the likely difference in scoring between the two, and whether it's worth going Bateman and saving that extra 54k that I will likely need to upgrade Luai with later.

    Dragons lock is one of the most unstable positions across the whole comp. Its a brave man to bank on any player holding that position down.

    That’s what it sounds like.. they played lower grade together so want to link back up and Mary was saying he wants to get sailor on the fielder sooner

    Mary has also said he likes running his young middles in short bursts.

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!)

    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.

    Wonder if Paul Vaughan will cop a fine from NSW police as well for giving false details - I'm of the understanding its a legal mandate for restaurants to take patrons names and details now rather than just a recommendation?

    I don't mind Hughes for 617K. Been putting up good scores and is more a focus point of the attack lately... plus has HLF/WFB dpp.

    Wish we had more clarity on Matto

    Grant to Jurbo I think, but Munster is very tempting, that extra money could in handy for me when looking to upgrade a Fog or Sironen at the end. Wfb in the bench feels weird but the points are there.

    As someone who had Hughes earlier in the year, just don't do it.

    He doesn't have nearly enough upside to justify the risk you take by buying him. Munster and Moses are only 30k more, surely you'd go one of those two ahead of Hughes.

    2 of those big scores are on the back of him scoring a double. Long term I would back Munster and Moses to both comfortably outscore him.
    And his price is not low enough to make it a decent value play

    If Young doesn't retain his big scores in the middle I'm going to try and swing Aloiai, Butcher and Young to Moses, Bateman and Fifita over the next couple of weeks. (I currently have 543k itb)

    Will give me:

    Cook
    Haas MoFo
    Lolo Bateman Fifita
    Cleary Moses
    Mitchell Lomax
    Papy Teddy Ponga

    Carrigan Pearce Sironen Aubo

    HTF Niu Randall Musgrove

    with 3 trades up my sleeve for the last 5 weeks.

    Official article by Tigers on Grant https://www.weststigers.com.au/news/2020/08/06/chemist-warehouse-injury-report-round-13/

    Hooker Harry Grant will miss the next four matches with a meniscus injury. The 22-year-old will undergo arthroscopic surgery tomorrow and is expected to be available for selection in Round 17.

    Also: Lebanon international Alex Twal is also on track to return next week after picking up a sternum injury against the New Zealand Warriors in Round 12.
