    I reckon he still has an eye on the Dally M points.

    Finding it really hard to decide between Haas and DCE for Captain under the new rules. Both could go huge. Part of me wants to just go Haas as he's capable of a banner just in base and couple of attacking runs if he gets good mins

    Cleary was definitely playing within himself last week. Didnt take on the line and just looked to sit back and organise the play. Got that break away in open field that boosted his score.

    If he plays well within himself again then probably another "average" score around 55 imo

    Looking forward to tonights game because its the last time I have to watch this embarassment of a team go round for the year!

    Might have a chance to l**p with Fui, but might not know until quite late?

    Any ideas here fellas? I should also mention that I'm starting Hudson Young, incase you think he should drop out.

    The rules trials are going to be interesting, although not convinced two matches is enough to make an assessment. On the other hand it is two more than rugby league normally bothers assessing changes in.

    Obviously having the ball in play more is great (vid reviews while kicks being taken, taps replacing scrums), but I'm starting to wonder if the game can get too fast with restarts vs penalties. Especially when there is wildly inconsistent interpretations of restarts not only between games but often within the same games.

    And I don't really get the scrum one. They're already uncontested. The trend in rule changes has been to find situations where a tap restart can replace them, including one of the rules being trialled this weekend. And yet we're going to make sure only forwards get into them. Why?

    Anyway, rant over and I'm sure those two players I don't have (Haas and DCE) will score 120 each.

    I think it's right as is - your top 4 starts and your bottom 4 is the emg.

    If you are confident Fui doesn't play I would loop Lucy or Jazz with Biro. You could do this either using INT 4 or starting 2RF positions, not sure whether one allows you an escape if Fui is named, depending on timing of games.

    Just anything the ref thinks is a try are getting reviewed while the kicks sets up. Means half the current bunker decisions are happening in game time rather than stopping the game. Also means they will review all tries awarded to avoid the Jaxson Paulo situation a few rounds ago.

    I thought that last week and I thought that Ivan may have had a game plan for him to sit back and let Luai take more control. Cleary may do the same this week.

    Counterpoint: Cleary is most likely within reach of the Dally M, so might want to do more to have a crack at it

    Thanks mate

    Currently have To’o coming in but am eyeing up Capewell instead. Anyone prefer one over the other?

    Hmm not sure, Kikau who Capewell is replacing doesn't always play 80 mins and gets short rest from Tetevano/May (but May is starting) but Kikau is more explosive

    I would lean towards yes Capewell plays 80 as Panthers may be more likely to rest JFH & Yeo (just to screw my 14 players over even more) but I'd probably just take Staggs for the upside given it's 1 game and Staggs will have higher base than he does at CTR playing 6

    Awesome, Im alittle worried about making the wrong choice (being the last round) but Staggs at 6 could be a monster Smile Cheers Camo Smile legend.

    Staggs at 6 is a massive trap for me. Luckily it'll only last a week.

    He's a centre who relies very heavily on skipping outside his opponent one on one or using his strength in those situations. He'll be defending further in which means he won't be well rested to make those plays. I think he struggles to score 20
