    I think I'm shaping up to join Team Regret. (i.e. not buying Schuster)

    His talent is undeniable, and he may cement a spot because of that, still it's hard to see in the Medium term where he fits.

    At present, he's a half filling in on the edge and seems unlikely to keep the spot over an actual edge who has trained as an edge.

    Turbo sounds likely to be back next week or Round 5.
    When Turbo is back, he's Fullback, Walker -> Centre, Parker possibly to edge (more experience and Des loves him).

    Then Round 6 Olakau'atu returns as well.
    By Round 7 Sironen potentially returns.

    He almost certainly makes some coin in the short-term. It does seem like it needs quite a few things to fall his way.
    Of course, often in Fantasy that happens, I'm not entirely convinced yet...

    Agree with everything you've said tbh. We don't even know yet if he's actually going to start in the back row.

    I'm still pretty tempted to grab him (if he does start), but my only real flip for him is Gosi. Despite how poor Gosi is for fantasy, it still feels pretty sideways to trade a cheap manly edge to a cheap manly edge. I know most will say its a no brainer but most run out of trades by round 10 too.

    He's one of those players that everything may just keep falling into place though..

    From the little I have seen of Schuster he will cement a permanent gig reminds me a bit of a young John Sutton.

    Have to agree really and think anyone trading a fit body to him could potentially wait a week.
    I think the exception to this is those of us looking to move Davey on and want to take a bit of a risk that he turns out a great pick up, with quick money in him

    If Haumole is back in round 5 will he get a spot?

    He wasn't in first choice 17 at start of the season, so even with Davey and Sironen out I am not sure they rush him back into first grade, almost certainly not as a starter at least. Guess it depends on how Schuster/Gosie/Parker are going. He could well be their best fit 2nd rower when he returns.

    Mainly I am just worried about Schuster's job security. Going to be annoying if he gets shunted back to bench after a week or 2.

    yeah hard to tell. they just re-signed him for 3 years so they must like him at the club.

    he had minor injuries in pre-season which is why he missed the trial. at this stage just guessing as to why he didnt make round 1 though, could be lack of fitness or could just not be up to it.

    In previous years I have been hurt by not jumping on players when they appear short term (eg Ponga in his first year)

    My normal move is to trade in a guy with more job security so they can get injured.

    Even with Schuster's talent, he won't be worth it as a 20 minute benchy, but I'll just hope he makes himself undroppable in the short term.

    Think I might just hold Davey for the year and hope his ACL is fake news

    That's the guts of it - grabbed Davey and was promptly broken.
    Needing to move a season red dot and Schuster is cheap and (potentially) a cash making cow.
    Yes Des is "interesting" in his team selections (I mean who ditches an actual hooker, no matter how ploddish for a boring half??), and he may be playing mind-games, but Schuster is a talent and wherever he plays, he's likely to make something happen.
    Also, I've missed cows in the past b y second guessing and waiting too long (I'm looking at you Fog).
    So let's make that trade. Basketball

    Really want to captain Crichton, but think I need to put him on the bench to cover Edge as have no other cover there and the Riki wrist chat has me spooked.
    Brailey or Fifita the logical back up captain, but can't decide who, hmmmm scratch

    @mattnz wrote:Biggest thing to fix is your MIDs. Leniu and Uto as starting MIDs is putting you behind each week with 2 scores in the 30s. Maybe Davey to Alvaro as 1 trade, move Angus to MID, Riki to starting EDG. Makes the team look instantly better and much easier to loop correctly with your weaker players on the bench.

    For 2nd trade, I would bring in Schuster for Simonsson. Those that dont get Schuster now are likely to regret it.

    Play Cleary next to Schuster, loop Lam and Croker. Swap Pap and Laurie, and loop the 18 position with him playing late in the round.

    @easytiger wrote:
    I'm sorry, but that's terrible advice.
    IF Rabbits shifts Angus into the MID position then he literally has no cover for EDG if there are any late withdrawals (which may be unlikely, but obviously some chance).

    The way he currently has it, or if he had Riki at EDG and Crichton at 14, then he's covered in the instance of Fifita/Riki being a late out.
    Shuffling players round simply to give you the warm-fuzzies over your starting 13 is not a great strategy - I'm sure you know that.


    Matt isn't suggesting trading to make hi sstarting 13 look better.

    He's suggesting moves to that rabbits doesn't need to play both Leniu and Stefano in scoring 17.

    Community team is in a similar position. Its not too bad for community team because we have a big bank roll and can fix it up next week. But I think if all 3 of your starting MIDs are bench players for their team , then it is not a great long term strategy. Do it for a week or 2 if you have to, but priority should be getting more reliable scorers there
