    Nope! Have a feeling Bird eventually finds his way into 13, or Ford comes into the squad, or they lose against the Cows and Hook changes things up (Lawrie to 13 for example).

    Yeah I agree. Everything just feels uneasy with the whole Dragons pack so far. It's hard to see Fui as the long term 13 truthfully. If he puts up another good score and retains the jumper next week, then I'll probably strongly consider him. Lawrie I see is a much better lock.

    I'm coming back to thinking about 2 trades even though I don't need to just so I can get better players (Lam + Gosiewski out). Even though I had a damn good score, my cash generation is still fairly low (total 294k increase in team value)

    Earlier idea about holding Gosiewski even though he sucks and will bleed cash could potentially just be best move and hope for better cheap cow

    The way the game is going it is crying out for hard, ball playing locks... Like your Watsons, Radleys, Murrays, Yeos, Harris, Tinos and Birds (to an extent)... Guys that are built like a brick shit house and have a little bit of footwork and a nice pass in their arsenal. I am unsure on Lawrie's passing skills, so maybe Fui has that in him. I tend to think of your Jurbo's and Lolo's whose games have really diminished over the last couple seasons. Not saying these players aren't good but they just aren't super effective anymore as their game doesn't suit the way NRL is played at the moment - JUST IN MY OPINION

    Fun Fact: Was listening to Bloke in Bar (Denan Kemp, Finchy, JWow and Reni Matua) watching the dragons v sharks game over the weekend and Jwow and Kempy said Bird originally went to the Bronco's because he wanted to play five-eighth.

    Lawrie just seems like a Twal 0.5 remake

    Good at racking up tackles and RM but doesn't really provide spark through offloads, breaking tackles (not a single offload in his lock starts)

    Gos would be my exception as he has reverted to the bench and genuinely sucks. So glad my head was screwed on and he never made my team.... Host on the other hand.

    I kept saying he sucked and I still picked him for EDG coverage

    Stupidly I didn't even need him as I had 2 DPP MID/EDG in Fui & Crichton so could have just got another MID

    Gosiewski out only highly limited options at 301k, so tempted to ditch Lam. We were always dealing with low sample sizes and Keary has switched to right side which is easier for right foot kicker. Clearly they targeted left Manly edge and it'll probably even out slightly, but 2020 games could be misleading

    I think he's still growing as a player. ST maybe right with the type of locks these days but I think he can go another level. Fui has been around a while now and never really cemented any positions long term. Not sure what's different now.

    “James Roberts was on light duties at training on Wednesday with Tommy Talau training in his place at centre...The Tigers said he will train properly on Thursday.”

    Roberts was replaced towards the end of Sunday’s game with what appeared to be a shoulder issue

    This is pretty accurate.

    The Lock position has seen a rise in being played by dynamic, mobile forwards rather than bash and bargers of the past.

    The Dragons may shake up their forward rotation at some point but there's a risk worth taking there as frankly it's not like they've got great depth waiting in the reserves.

    Leaves me with enough cash to do Capewell to Angus in round 3. If Capewell didn't score that try he wouldn't of scored 30's plus he didn't play 80 mins.

    If I keep Angus I might do:
    Lodge & L. Croker to Leniu & Alvaro

    Seems like a wasted trade. Gaining 20-30 points this round at the cost of a trade doesn't seem worth it. The only reason I would be getting rid of Crichton would be if you get in Cleary then it 'may' be worth it, even then it'll be close.

    The one thing I am considering when playing FRF Roulette.

    Leniu is an absolute weapon, no way he doesn't barge over for a few tries this season. The rest being mentioned and I know a few of them scored on the weekend but they are genuine plodders.

    I'm thinking I'll go Leniu and ride the price rise after he barges over for a few weeks then bugger him off when he peaks.

    Surprised how much chat there is about trading Angus when he's only out one week and it's not even for an injury.

    You picked him for a reason, that reason being he's an absolute boss, a dpp boss at that. Most players, especially forwards, will be lucky to make it through the season without an injury or suspension at some point.

    Would rather get Verrills than Lussick, so if Friend will be out for a while, would be nice to be able to time it so can bring him in as a straight swap

    Thinking Croker and Lodge for Alvaro and Davey.

    Would be keen on Leniu instead of Alvaro but can't afford that without swapping Croker to someone else.

    I'm going with a gut call on Koala, but if I wasn't, I'd pick Leniu over the others I think.
