    No Lomax all season. Refused to bring him in after fluking tries early season and using that as an excuse. Would of saved 5+ trades getting him in CTR

    Trading Tolman out for Klemmer after his first game on the bench and seeing him on the bench again. He scored like 50 odd off the bench then averaged above well above 50 and easily outscored Klemmer

    No Lomax all season

    "Upgrading" Leilua to Angus Crichton the week Leilua got 100 and Crichton got injured - should have held 2 trades to not make move

    Starting with no WFB cover which led to me getting Watkins who left during COVID break

    Plus the price Klemmer probably was over Tolman. Will give you the mistake on that one

    Taking JTB and Katoa out of my starting squad because I thought borders would close and Warriors would be out of the competition for a year.

    Picking Moses over Cleary because of Parra's piss easy early schedule, which after round two became a difficult schedule.

    Not sure what I can learn from those mistakes (or starting with Kallum Watkins) unless there's another pandemic, but made plenty more mistakes trying to correct them and burnt through trades in a damaging way.

    Picking DWZ as third WFB for some reason I can't remember.

    Danny Levi. Trading Lucy too soon.

    Started with NBrown. Traded after the 2 low scores and he got injured. Traded him back in for round six which he then got suspended or injured again, so I traded him out again and he beasted it the rest of the year

    tbh I was handicapped from the start as for my first season I had NO idea what I was doing, and didn't understand I had trade limits for the season (thought it was just for each round so I max traded sideways for the first 5 rounds lol).

    With all that said:

    - Trying to get every single cash cow
    - Not getting on certain players just because "everyone else was doing it" i.e. Ben Hunt
    - Overvaluing players I like in real life

    I think a fair few of my errors last year were maybe 65% bad luck and 35% bad decision making

    2 times I bought someone and they got injured that week (Crichton & Arrow)

    I think my actual biggest mistakes were chasing fixtures when I knew it was wrong move (Flanagan, JFH, Bateman)

    I can beat that. I also traded Leilua to Crichton the week Leilua tonned up and Crichton got injured. The other half of the trade was Mann to Wakeham who was dropped. You could argue that the first half was unlucky. Leilua had seemingly peaked and Angus, a genuine gun, was genuinely gunning it. Mann looked to be peaked. And Wakeham was a punt which didn't pay off. No one could really foresee a Leilua tonne and many were trading him out. And you can't help injuries with Crichton. No one expected Mann to do well as he was doing and it seemed temporary and seemed set to start losing money. Obviously I knew Wakeham had poor job security.

    So yeah I was unlucky, Crichton being injured led to me being short when Matterson was a late out etc etc.

    But it's ultimately not bad luck. My trades were poor. ALL trades need to be considered on their merits. With ALL trades, you need to consider both sides of the trade: do I need to trade this guy? Is the guy I'm trading in really necessary? Do I need to trade at all?

    Yea that is just gross luck mate. I never chase fixtures, never worth it

    Was on Manu to start season years ago with a wild Roosters opening draw, absolute dud and sure he struggled to get over 30. was shit until mid season then morphed into the beast he is now
