    I can’t see Rein playing 80mins, the Titans will have a utility in the 14 maybe Tanah Boyd.

    I won't be starting with a Liddle/Egan/Croker but they are decent options for bench for sure

    Can't risk having a 1 spot being taken up by a potential dud because the price differential to fix is massive

    The plus side of starting with Liddle if he gets crocked is that it might just be a straight swap to Simpkin.

    Thoughts on David Fifita? Is he gonna he able to average between 55-60 or is he gonna be on that next level down from Angus Crichton?

    Predictions?....

    Sit and see for me with Fifita at a new club with a host of new forwards. Crichton is get what you pay for.

    If there is a pure second rower who can rival Crichton its Fifita though

    I think Fifita is too lazy to be a consistent fantasy scorer. I dont doubt his ability  but defenses will be all over him this year, so it will be interesting to see how he goes. Not a punt i want to start the year.

    I have a big call for the big calls thread that features fifita.

    Anyone starting with Papy at his much higher price?

    Teddy? last 3 year first 2 games well below his seasonal average

    2020- 40.5
    2019 - 30.5
    2018 - 49.5

    incredibly small first 2 game samples and a big upgrade needed to get him in, so likely not worth not starting with him and waiting a few games to get him at a discount

    I can’t see Liddle playing 80, we don’t want him breaking in the first game.

    Dont think ive ever started with teddy and I cant see that changing. I wouldnt say i have a set formula or anything but i usually steer clear of spending many $$$ at wfb to start the year. Generally hurts a few weeks in when im stuck with guys like dedwards, but ill stick to it (subtle brag ho ho ho)

    I guess it all depends on what other value is out there but id hope its not so easy to put together a squad that im able to throw Teddy in too

    Don't think there is any science behind the average starts, it's an awful lot to invest in a wfb at the start of the season when really all it comes down to who scores and its a crap shoot obviously.

    Tommy is great value if you can get enough games from him at the start of the season if you are looking to start with a gun.

    Who is the next Papy in the wfb?

    What does Pappy have to do with it?

    The main debate last season was Papy wasn't a good fantasy pick, and Latrell would turn Gun after getting used to position. I thought it worked

    If he is starting at fullback for round 1 Isaako will be in my side. I think there is value there at 399k it is a good price and I’ll take the gamble that he can hold that spot.

    Thoughts on Latrell heading in to this season mate?

    I expect much more of the same but do you think he can be more consistent?

    In fairness Rabbits he couldn't be any less consistent.

    I think I’m gonna do what I did last year again and that’s start quite cheap at centre.

    What I need to do this year is ignore trial form. That’s part of why I didn’t own Lomax last season....

    Unless he has transformed his game completely and has decided to not be a lazy cunt then more of the same.

    His 2 season samples at fullback are 37 and 38 averages. Granted he was young in first season (which was basis he would get better last year) It's a no from me.#

    Plenty of room for an uptick in try scoring. Only 4 last season, but unless he moves to CTR again or ARey busts early and he gets GK i'll avoid. If he kicks on, he'll come into consideration, but easy to wait and see on Latrell

    As a non-Lomax owner all season it was hard to pick him up mid season as well because it seemed unsustainable to me. I was wrong. Agreed, trial form is more than not shite.

    We all moan about CTR every year but inevitably there are always a few options that pop up. The difficult decision is picking the consistent ones

    Lomax was all early season, shite. Lucky tries boosting scores to just about acceptable. Then they morphed into a cracking option some morons (myself) refused to bring in haha

    Averillo was decent but his inconsistent play and in and of team was a nightmare, Capewell was a gun for all of 2 games. We just need to pick the Lomax Smile
