    Hey mate... just a heads up if you wanna loop you can swap Lam and Cleary, chuck Stefano at 18 and put go 19. Croker 20. Lam

    Check out Crokers game Friday arvo... if he goes 40+ leave him at 19 and he will go in for Cleary, if he goes below 35 then you can swap Lam with Stefano quickly before the Roosters game and hope he beats 35???

    Really appreciate the tip! I’ll give it some thought. Not much of a looper.

    Im actually away camping this weekend. So limited reception. And will be blotto by the footy. To much pressure

    My reasoning for Fifita over Brailey is more chance for Knights to dominate the Tigers and less chance of Brailer racking up 50 tackles... Could go over for a try again but I would rather back Fifita on a dry track in TSV to break a tonne of tackles and score a couple tries.

    Yeah, very good point re the tackle count.

    Would you have teddy over all of them?

    @StormTrooper96 wrote:I was listening to one of Denan Kemps Podcast episodes yesterday and he made a really good point about Milford. Pretty much long story short (and what my dishevelled brain can remember) yes Milford is on the big bucks, yes Milford “on his day” is an incredible player; however, over the past 2-3 years the Broncos have really tried to make Milford their main man. Main Man in the sense of Milford controls the game, Milford receives first ball 90% of the time and Denan used a really good analogy – If you think of the set play as a spear, Broncos keep trying to make Milford the handle, so to speak, but Milford is the tip of the spear. Broncos need him to be ending those plays or being 2nd or 3rd off the ruck, out wide, keeping the opposition second rower and half guessing will he run, will he kick, will he pass out wide, will he pass inside. Think back to 2015 (arguably Milford’s best year) when they made the GF, Broncos had McCullough at 9, Hunt at 7, Boyd at 1… all players who can control the team, aren’t needed to make lots of runs and all really complementing Milford’s game allowing him to be that tip of the spear player. Milford needs to be the glove and not the hand in the glove – and this is where they need Turpin, Croft, Dearden to step up, start taking control of the game and just allow Milford to swing around, play all over the park.

    TL;DR – Denan Kemp/Bloke In A Bar made some good points about Milford and how the Broncos have changed his game to be the spear handle rather than the spear tip.

    Welcome, I'm not the person to give advice on team setup so won't but I can give you other advice. Don't listen to Welshy (unless its about UK players he likes but won't buy for some amusing reason), he's a turnip.



    Also, don't listen to me.

    Isn't Brailey more likely to pick up attacking stats though to compensate? That Knights pack doesn't mind getting on a roll and I can't see tigers changing that, which should provide a lot of opportunities for him.

    Bit of a concern for Alvaro and Fui if that happens, Kerr back to middle you would think.

    Welcome

    Nice to have you on board!

    So at the moment you are set up to get Simonsson's score above Uto's. Niu will fill for Pappy, Schuster will fill for Cleary.

    Meaning your 18, 19 (Sims, Leniu) are being played.

    Unless you loop, and switch Averillo in for Schuster once Cleary/Paps play etc.

    I wouldn't be trading, and would just adjust my bench to have the forwards play.

    Oh, and I love Cook in reserves!

    I was thinking to C Brailey so Cook has to go to the bench

    I'm a bit lost on bench and emergencies and who I should play

    The article says he will spend some time at 2RF during games to give Williame some game time to get him up to speed

    I’m hoping more of a concern for fui than Alvaro.

    Looking good my dude. Great team, good captain call, and follow the advice above on looping if you have time or swap Simonnson and Stefano if you don't.

    For reference I'm running out like:

    J. Brailey (C)
    Watson, BSmith, Welch
    Riki, D.Fifita
    Cleary, Lam
    Opacic, Averillo
    Teddy, Laurie, Pappy

    Turpin, Liddle, Leniu, Chricton
    LCroker, Niu, Utoikamanu, Simonsson

    So you'll see I don't loop myself and will score about the same as you!

    Captain roulette this week. I have Cherry-Evans, Crichton, Harris, Brailey and Teddy. Making the right pick will make a big difference to overall position I reckon. Tough to decide, but I'm going Crichton (C) and Cherry-Evans (VC). Cherry's game 1 low score in the first half scares me.

    Thoughts on these trades:
    Capewell out - Schuster in
    Leniu out - Egan in (feels wrong selling a cash cow in Leniu who will still make money but I have enough middles & Egan strengthens my depth)

    J. Brailey
    Tino, Watson, Alvaro
    Angus (c), D. Fifita
    Lam, Schuster
    Roberts, Averillo
    Tedesco, Laurie, Niu

    Turpin, Liddle, Egan, Riki
    Utoi, Simonsson, Cleary, Pappy

    Thanks

    If it feels wrong don't do it?

    If you must, why not dump Simonsson? Sure, you'll lack cover but he's gonna give you, what, 15-25 points if you need him? Big deal.
