    He's a very busy player and should also get some solid KMs giving him at least some sort of base. He's a low risk option with his replacement being 228k if he's dropped.

    Pretty much same same as most with a few exceptions. Hey, at least if I'm shit everyone will be!

    Geez @Mearcats, you and I must be eating the same cookies. lol!

    I'm betting every player on here ends up with Crichton, Cleary, Fifita, Watson, Riki, Lam, Teddy, Pappy, Laurie, Turpin, Bird & Roberts.
    Then add: Liddell, Niu and Croker on the bench and you've got 6 positions to fill on your team for a little POD action.

    My current team:
    (for Rabbits21, it's my 5th version)

    Turps
    Crichton / Watson / NAS
    Fifita / Riki
    Cleary / Lam
    Bird / Roberts
    Teddy / Laurie / Pappy

    Brailey
    Liddle
    Lodge
    J. Host
    Croker
    Stefano
    Moylan
    Niu

    my bank is almost all spent, but hey, hookers aplenty, and enough centre cover for whatever stupid injury curse hits.

    Dear Lord I hope not. Dearden makes Croft look average. For Croft to stay he moves to 6, Milford leaves end of this season and Dearden plays 7.

    Please note: I have never liked Croft. Guy gives me and instant soft on

    Just changed Leniu to Roberts and swapped Averillo into my EMG and that fills me with a little more confidence.

    I like it fella, looks like a good starting platform. I like Brailey and would work him into my team at the expense of Fatrell, just wanna give the bloke a few weeks to disappoint me first ya know. Masochist and whatnot. Stefano is of interest to me but at a low enough cost that I'm happy to wait and see.

    Thoughts on NAS? Lock role sans Finucane got you interested?

    Looking at his stats. I don't think that (D)alker is such a bad choice. Averillo always had questionable job security, even more so now if not starting this week. Last years average includes a 1 and a -1 after only playing a few minutes. Priced at 24. Any solid leads on Averillo not starting?

    None honestly, just the talk around the water cooler that he's carrying an injury. I doubt a new coach in a team that is happy to bump coaches as fast as Brisbane in rcecbt years would name a bloke without some semblance of confidence. That being said, we won't know for certain til an hour before I guess. I for one will be running him, certainly over Dildo Walker

    Ouch, I'm missing four of that lot.

    Most notably and one I've never even considered - Roberts. Can someone fill me in what happened with Roberts? I completely missed where he went from moderately interesting in passing but irrelevant to being in literally every team I see. What the balls did we find out that I missed, as I am still left in a lonely corner with no interest in him at all.

    The reason why I am choosing Lam is that he looks a solid defender so rarely misses a tackle compared to say a Brooks, Milf or Townsend. With Keary's hamstring injury and being a left footer the kicking should be at least 50-50 for around 250m per game +. So base looks at least 30 points and then having Crichton around him and just good players will create attacking stats. Draw is Sea Eagles, Tigers, Rabbitohs, Warriors, Sharks so a somewhat favourable start. Like that he can potentially cover hooker if Friend needs a rest maybe if Keighran goes to half??? Not sure.

    Flannagan averaged 43.4 without GK and I believe LAM will get 45-47 points.

    Oh, I'm not in love with he or Bird mate. But.... Ctrs so who gives a F? In short, they're both relatively cheap, have "potential" therefore ability to generate cash and the position HAS to be filled by someone. A lack of decent DPP EDG/CTR players at a reasonable price this year probably plays into it a bit I guess. If Jet can rediscover any form of the Titans try scoring form he'll be an easy cash out upgrade

    I feel like Host is a bit of a trap. May only see 50 minutes. With Knight and Sele out Kolomatangi is needed to beef up the bench middle this week but can see him earning the spot from Host.

    I really want to run the gauntlet and start with Milf as have a gut feeling, but he is really the only player I can downgrade without destroying my team. Hmmm...
