    After some advice if I may guys?

    At the moment I’ve got Lam to Walker and Averillo to Egan lined up but I’m open to suggestions

    Team post trades(29 trades,0k bank)

    Brailey
    BS9 Angus Watson
    Fifita Riki
    Cleary Milford
    Roberts Niu
    Teddy Papy Laurie

    Turpin
    Liddle
    Egan
    Schuster

    Alvaro
    Walker
    Stefano
    Leniu

    And yes I’m aware that these trades leave me with no CTR/WFB cover but I’m losing patience in Averillo

    My advice is to post in here more than just asking for advice once or twice a week. The more we see of your profile pic the better

    It's proper forum etiquette to wait for danseels to bump his post before you answer it Wink

    Just a quick FYI for anyone panicing:

    There's only 31 points between me ranked ~9300 and someone ranked ~12300 (3000 ranks).

    Literally a incorrect captaincy cost in 1/3 rounds could cost you 3000 ranks this early.

    Yeah, trading middies to middies for bye coverage is less good than having a couple of your Origin players you have scoring for you for twelve rounds who you then trade out and in for actual (near) guns before the byes. Which you can only do if you've saved trades by not trading middies to middies for the first two months.

    That said, Rnd 13 guns Moses and Matterson are going to be discounted over the next few weeks and could be worth targeting.

    Not fully convinced Haas plays Origin either. I mean, I'd pick him if I were NSW but combination of off-field and the fact he wasn't actually very good in SOO last year means it's not a sure thing.

    NSW could be something like Saifiti/Cook/Jurbo/Friz/Crichton/Murray with a Pap/Radley/Paulo/NBrown bench. For Game One, at least. And that's the only game that matters with Haas.

    Crazy to have no cover for two positions and even worse with zero cash. That’s madness.

    Yep, the difference between top 1000 and around 6000 (where im at) is about 100 points

    lot of teams are very similiar this year (probably because everyone owns laurie, watson, brailey, pap, liddle etc in their 17)

    EDIT: also the lack of variety in guns available at the start of the season made team lineups even more homogenous (no ponga, grant, haas or mcinnes)

    Look at all you posers bringing in Walker like a bunch of mainstream sheep.
    I’m going to NOT bring him, and exude an air of hubris as if choosing to go against the grain is somehow a personality. I guess I’m just cool like that, you probably wouldn’t know anything about it

    I’m 307 behind the leader and ranked 6180. We only have 9 similar players, but he’s done it without the likes of Cleary, Crichton, Tedesco. It also appears he would have Fifita as a set and forget captain.

    Also, I had an incorrect captaincy in round 1, which put me well behind from the start.

    Either Walker or Verrills for me and I think long term Verrills is the better option

    Maybe two or three of the top fifty will be in the top fifty by the end of the season, and a lot of them will wind up nearer 5,000th. I wouldn't worry about it

    Is there new news on Verills? Last I heard (last week) he was still a few weeks away. And by then there'll be more clarity on Jake Friend, who I wouldn't write off just yet

    Speaking of origin, I almost feel sorry for the blues. Papa, Welch, Tino, Fifi, Arrow etc. Our pack is just going to bully them from start to end. Can't wait.

    Looking for a cheap cash out that’s all. He’ll play a lot this year whether it’s in a week or 3 weeks. Unfortunately I can’t see Jake returning for an extended period as tough as he is
