    Plan was Butcher to Haas next week, but I need a FRF this week with Mofo out.

    Currently considering:

    A: McIntyre to Wallace this week and Butcher to Haas next week per original plan.

    B: McIntyre to AFB and Butcher to Barnett both this week.

    Will have 1 trade left.

    Which do you guys prefer? Team def looks more solid with option B once Mofo comes back as I don't have to play Luai in my 17. With option A I would need to play either Luai or Wallace in the 17, but obviously Haas is a big boost for the last few rounds especially as captain...

    Grant
    Fotuaika Carrigan
    Taumalolo Tevaga Fifita
    Cleary Johnson
    Talau Croker
    Ponga Tedesco Brimson

    Hunt NBrown Papenhuyzen Starling

    Sironen Haas Niu Wiliame

    2 trades + 13k

    I am currently more focused on H2H and my opponent this week has 14 players with one trade left so i am happy running with 16 this week and will get Haas and Fotuaika back next week for finals. So I just need to trade Taumalolo to any second row other than McInnes. I could get someone who isn't a SRF but that would leave me with only Carrigan to cover SRF and FRF

    my options are:

    Taumalolo -> Bateman, probably wont with better options IMO

    Lolo -> Matterson, cheapest he will be and good scoring

    lolo -> Twal, gives me 100k for final upgrade as well as DPP

    I definitely like Matterson out of those three options.

    59k in bank. i was thinking lolo to either grant or matterson? then holding one trade for remainder....

    For those that held Grant, the times are good. But no way I'd be bringing him in with Liddle on the bench.

    I expect Grant will still score very well, but for peace of mind I'd be going with Matterson as he doesn't have a Liddle on the bench that might affect his scoring.

    It might just be a GK thing, Ponga's GK has left a lot to be desired recently and F/A will be crucial for Knights in run to finals

    Oh I understand I just don’t think it’s the right call

    Yeah doesn’t matter if you don’t score and/or let in more as a result

    The wind was ridiculous on Sunday arvo at the game

    Carnage all round. Hope they've saved some trades.

    Not in the top 20, but a decent TLT for me, still 17 green dots, but this week includes (hopefully) SJ rather than HTF.

    Hopefully this is a similar trend across the top couple of hundred.

    On form probably Matterson, similar players in that they both have a good floor and big ceiling. I still suspect Cook has a big score in him before the end of the regular season though....only because I don’t have him

    I’m tossing up the same trades, with Klemmer and Papalii also in the mix.
    I think I’m leaning towards Matterson at present, just ahead of Twal.

    TLT wasn't kind with Hamiso and Averillo being "rested" on top of popular players like Tolo, Mofo, Koro & Haas on the sidelines.
    Definitely testing the depth of teams and still 5 rounds to go affraid

    Had look through trade history to see extent of how season has panned out as I'm down to 0 trades:

    Forced trade (injury/dropping/compassionate leave): 19 trades (13 injuries, 2 leave, 4 dropping)
    Trading perceived peaked cow/upgrade to gun: 8 trades
    Luxury trade (trading fit player still scoring well): 3 trades

    Hannay says Drinkwater will go back into the halves and Holmes fullback in coming weeks. HTF has a slight hamstring strain so is being rested. Opacic dropped due to form.
