    I captained DCE, I fucked up the loop with Siro and Aubo AND I was only playing with 16 this week.

    I went up 3 places from 221 to 218. I'm somehow failing upwards.

    They play the Roosters and they’ve lost Munster.
    I’ll be very surprised if he doesn’t play.

    FEEL GOOD STORY TO END THE WEEKEND

    Cronulla Sharks star Siosifa Talakai on being sacked by the Rabbitohs


    Story:
    Siosifa Talakai slowly pulled up to his parents’ Mascot home and turned off the car engine.
    With the keys still in the ignition, he leaned his head back into the driver’s head-rest, closed his eyes and began to cry.

    “What am I going to tell my parents,” the Sharks forward still remembers.
    Waiting on the other side of his front door were his family – his mother and father, three sisters and two brothers.
    These were the people he played rugby league for.
    Every month, a portion of his South Sydney contract money would go to them.
    But now, parked out the front of his family home halfway through the 2018 season, Talakai had to walk inside and tell the faces staring back at him that the final year of his contract at South Sydney had been shredded.

    “I just didn’t know what to tell them,’’ Talakai said.
    “I’d just been sacked by the South Sydney board.
    “I was coached by Michael Maguire and trained alongside Sam Burgess, Greg Inglis, John Sutton and Adam Reynolds.
    “Then it was like my whole world in front me ... just disappeared.
    “I never thought I’d play first grade ever again.”

    On Sunday afternoon for Cronulla, Talakai will run out against Parramatta at Kogarah’s Jubilee Oval.
    The 23-year-old former Junior Kiwi has only played eight previous games for the black, white and blue, but already his fearless and barreling charges with the football have transformed him into a fan favourite.
    With 18 tackle busts so far this season, Talakai has been tagged by league immortal Andrew Johns, as the clone of former Tongan international Konrad Hurrell.
    “I can see the resemblance — not too tall, a bit wide,” Talakai smiles.

    But Talakai’s journey back to the NRL is superior to that of any wrap from a rugby league legend.
    “I was a South Sydney junior rugby league player, I went through the system and made my NRL debut back in 2016,” Talakai said.
    “I played 11 games for Souths in the NRL.
    “But I started the 2018 pre-season and I had quite a bit going on.
    “I think I was still too young, I didn’t know how to handle the pressure from footy and pressure from being the main income earner for home.
    “I was turning up too late to meetings, I wasn’t in the right headspace and just really didn’t want to play footy any more.
    “I only really stayed in footy because that was my main income.
    “I don’t really drink much, but in 2018 I would drink quite often. I found myself drowning myself in alcohol to escape. It wasn’t good for myself at all.

    “It all came to an end when I had to go front the South Sydney board, who ended up sacking me.
    “I remember them telling me and I was still in shock. It didn’t quite hit me until I had to go home and tell my family.
    “Mum and Dad, they were not disappointed, but they weren’t happy either.
    “All they wanted for me really was just to have a good life, better than what they did in Tonga.
    “I wasn‘t sure what I was going to do. I had no club, I had nothing. I needed to get help for the state of depression I was in.’’

    After being cut by Souths, Talakai met with former Penrith general manager Phil Gould in June 2018, which resulted in Talakai playing the remainder of the year with the Panthers reserve grade.

    “But I got to the end of 2018 and with no firm offers, I was ready to hang the boots up, I turned to waste management company URM and became a ‘garbo’ to earn an income,’’ he said.
    “We’d get up at 4am and meet at the yard to get everything ready and I’d run the streets of Leichhardt and Balmain flipping bins.
    “You know what, I enjoyed it. I started to focus on the little things, I was alive, I was well. I was able to make a bit of income.
    “I kept quite fit running up the hills.
    “The last thing I was thinking about was footy.”

    Then came a call at the beginning of last year that sparked the fire that remained burning within for Talakai and allowed him to fall back in love with the game he first began playing as a junior with the Mascot Jets.
    His cousin, Wesley Lolo, a former forward playing with Newtown in the NSW Canterbury Cup, asked Talakai if he wanted to come and train and play with the famous old Jets.

    “At Newtown they’ve got a great system, the coaching staff and CEO were great and just allowed you to enjoy your football,’’ Talakai said.
    “I started to enjoy my footy again and my manager called me and said the Sharks were willing to give me a train-and-trial contract for the 2020 pre-season.
    “I wasn’t too sure about it, to be honest. I was a bit scared and embarrassed because I had given up on my dream of playing first grade and making it back.
    “But I changed my mindset and that was just to win everything and to do my best to secure a contract as a top-30 player.


    “After receiving a contract to join the Sharks top-30 in March, my next goal was to get an contract extension beyond this season and a starting spot.”
    Last month, Talakai extended his future with the Sharks until the end of 2021 and this afternoon he‘s starting in first grade after forcing Kiwi Test backrower Briton Nikora out of the side.
    “They (Sharks) offered a two year deal and I said no, because knowing myself, I think I work harder if I’ve only got a one year deal,’ Talakai said.
    “I didn’t want to get complacent like I did at Souths. It will keep me on my toes.”

    So what‘s next on Talakai’s list of goals for 2020?
    “Win the premiership,” he said.

    I have 6 trades left which I’m happy about. I only have 1 hooker though in Hunt and I’ve got Pearce who I am concerned about. The only having 1 hooker thing is worrying me a bit more than Pearce though.

    I can trade 1 of Murray, Yeo or Lucy out to Cook or McInnes just wanted some advice please on if it’s worth it? Or should I wait another week? Issue is if I want McInnes I probs can’t afford him after next week.

    I have 179k spare and 6 trades left:

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

    I think Storm would be confident in finishing top 4 regardless of the result vs. Roosters.

    Would be pretty shortsighted to rush Cam back after 1 week if they believe it's a 2-3 week recovery. Losing Munster shouldn't change the diagnosis.

    They don't mind bullshitting about injuries though, so I'd suspect that is the case if Cam does play this week. I hope he does, but I'm planning around him being out.

    Wait a week, they’ll be injuries, rather than moving on a keeper. I’d guess McInnes is still going to be around 890-900k this week and Cook’s price is going to fall for a couple of weeks as well. You’re in a great spot.

    Can you 1 trade Lucy to McInnes? Lucy has been going great but he needs tries to produce the type of same scores as McInnes.

    This will also let you move Hunt down to your 14-17 who will cover both HLF and HOK, something that could save you trades moving forward.

    The foxsports panel on Saturday said he could have played the Dogs game but they essentially just rested him.

    Yes I can afford Lucy to McInnes and have around 25k left over. I also have some concern re Yeo though and that he could go back to playing 60mins and recently his scores have been a bit inflated with 2-3 tries. Especially with Penrith so well placed I can’t see them keeping on flogging Yeo playing 80mins as they’ll want him fresh for finals. Penrith have a top 4 spot locked up already as well.

    Does anyone know in the top 1000 teams how many own McInnes and how many own Cook? @ my tv broke may know?....

    Just looking from last week at our top 60 in FOG league 25 owned McInnes compared with 18 of the top 60 owning Cook, I found that interesting....

    So roughly 60percent in the top 60 of our FOG league don’t own McInnes and 70percent do not own Cookie.

    Whilst 14 of our top 30 own McInnes and 12 of our top 30 own Cook.

    I think these numbers will increase a bit this week and the week after as I’m sure I’m not the only one looking at Cookie or McInnes.

    And just like that, its updated for round 13 numbers. cheer

    Grant still owned by 335 teams in the top 1000. Only owned by 12 in the top 100 though.

    Cook 366
    McInnes 462

    Moses not as heavily traded in as I thought, only 132 owners, and 10 in the top 100.


    Among the top 100, you aren't really going anywhere with these players (unless you C a less popular option for a really high or really low score):

    Nathan Cleary 99 owners
    Payne Haas 99
    Kalyn Ponga 99
    Patrick Carrigan 96
    Jason Taumalolo 92
    James Tedesco 92
    Ben Hunt 89
    Ryan Papenhuyzen 72

    Hunt the most interesting one for me, since I don't own him.... other interesting one for me, among the top 100, Aubbs my biggest POD with only 8 owners.. fingers crossed he gets a couple more weeks.

    41 people in the top 1000 without Ponga. Me being one of them. Shocked

      Current date/time is Mon Sep 21, 2020 3:27 am
