    'because we don't have the balls to just drop someone, we'll put a half on the bench and hook the worst performer mid game'.

    I just realised the last Broncos win was against the Dogs, at Suncorp, on a Saturday afternoon. haha

    Stupid. Surely you'd think bringing Turps off and leaving both Croft and Milf out there wiht Dearden would be laughable.

    I realise C Garry has said it, and he's usually spot on, but i'll believe it when i see it.

    Means he gets a rest which I guess he might enjoy... but terrible for fantasy owners

    This could be good for Turpin owners. Allows Turpin to put in his all in the time he has. Seems like he's sacrificing a lot in terms of effort just to get through 80 mins.

    Catching up while on my lunch break. By the sound of things, I could be playing Brooks and Averillo in my halves, captain choice s this round could be anyone, and time is up for Turpin? Have I missed anything?

    Under new scoring rules Turpin has 4 games of around 60 mins at hooker where he averages 45

    Small sample size but it wouldn't necessarily mean an urgent trade out

    Sounds like there is a heavy amount of expectation being placed on J-baely, hope it doesn't break him as is tradition and all of a sudden he's missing 16 tackles.

    If I have to keep Lam wiht Cleary out, I might just hold Tino for one more week too. Get to see both plus Turpin one more week. Might just be a case of holding trades for a week. Annoying because I want to start building some cash.

    Raymond Faitala-Mariner looking at up to 4 months on the sideline due to a foot injury (via @FOXNRL). Scan results to be confirmed, but once again innocuous foot injuries are worrisome. Most likely a fracture/midfoot ligament injury, will await confirmation from the Bulldogs

    Hearing that Cleary could be rested, is it too much to hope Schuster is named for Manly. I could possibly go Turpin/Averillo out, Schuster/Alvaro in, +173K itb.

    Anyone going to buy Parker if he's named to start at 2fr....he's only 307k but of course if he has a bad game he could be back at ctr next week.

    Perhaps as a straight swap for Averillo

    Should score enough for a cheap CTR, but a bit concerned about job security
