    Who do you bring in and why?

    - the peach to save a trade, good old “set and forget”
    - mono as hopefully a budget keeper
    - opacic as a likely medium term option
    - niu for wing cover so I can ditch simonsson when I’m ready and have WFB covered still
    - the other obvious answer I’m missing

    All conveniently are round 13 players

    So u have to trade right, as no Bird. Wait for Suali if it aligns well.
    Momo is paying premium, maybe Niu ?  It all really stinks doesn't it

    Probably Niu or spend the bank on Peach.  I am in the same boat (Niu my only centre this week) but considering spending up on Peach or even just get Roberts back.

    A few votes for niu

    I couldn’t justify roberts personally. Doesn’t look fit yet. I was live at the game though so might have looked better on TV with the eye test

    Cleary, Haas, Fifita, Moses, Matto, DCE, Cook

    Fifita is the one likely to rise the most in cash, so I would prioritise him. Unless he gets injured he won't be cheaper than he is now.

    Cleary is tough, he's smashing it so much right now you lose a lot not having him as captain, but it costs a lot to bring him in.
    He's not going to get significantly cheaper in the next few weeks though


    Due to the HIA Moses should be great to bring in in a couple of weeks.


    Matto I would avoid until he has played a full game on return from concussion. His history is a little concerning

    Cook, DCE and Haas will all be fine to get in your team, but I don't see any rush to get them in.

    Yeah not stoked about the situation

    Niu makes sense to have cover. Reservation is Broncos won’t win a game for 2 months so odds of attacking stats are low

    Opacic strikes me as someone going completely under the radar with all this CTR talk. Makes a bunch of tackles each game in base (19) and has scored mid 30s each game with one attacking stat (LBA) in a single game. The guy is a single try away from being "omg I should bring in Opacic next week" across the fantasy community. With that said, you've already got two CTRs in Bird/Roberts so replacing one of them with someone who may not score amazingly is kinda weird, something to remember.

    Niu is cheap and covers WFB as well. I've had great peace of mind having him in my EMG this year. Papy being out last week was no biggy at all.

    Peachy will also sit really nicely on your INT, freeing up some positional coverage in MID (for when you eventually wanna trade guys like Leniu, Alvaro, Fui etc).

    Momo is a solid choice.

    Mono on the other hand is mostly available in teenagers and so you might have to wait until Suaalii is in the Roosters team to grab that one.

    Yeah Roberts just a cheap option but I'm leaning towards spending the bank on Peachey personally.

    My answer would be Niu though if I didn't have him.

    Suaali would be perfect in every way but it’s a way off still it seems

I'm generally conservative so thinking to wait (sometimes to my detriment though), but may not be able to afford next week if results don't go my way. Pretty sure Tino is on the right track so leaning towards holding off on the second trade.
    I'm holding Tino this week too. I really do see a monster score on the horizon (he could have had a Fifi score last week had a few more LBs/erros gone his way). Trying to look past the recent fantasy scores and remember why I brought him in the first place. A massive, strong, dynamic forward who loves running good lines at the edges is going to go BOOM at some stage. Yes he'll have those games in the 30s and 40s, but I'm trying to envision a season average in the 50s. Just gotta hope I've made the right call.

    This is a major plus for me. I can run Bird and Niu and Peach can fill in the 14-17. Niu has been solid enough for the centre position and let's Peach roam around.

    @Syzy wrote:Anyone selling either Liddle or Brooks?

    Both are concerns for me.

    Liddle without his tries averages 36. Now his minutes may be reduced.

    What minutes were you expecting from Liddle when you started with him?

    He'd never played 80 minutes in first grade prior to round 1. A 60 minute average should have been around expectations, where he has a historical average of 44. That does include a try every 2 games, which may be hard to sustain. So you might have to sell him a little early, bit there s no rush.

    Reports are he is unlikely to play this week.

    Which is different to definitely not. But can't bank on it with Roosters so late in the round.

    I'm with you though. If we found out before the Dogs game he is playing, he would be in for me without hesitation.

    Best captaincy pick this week?

    Fifita - Backs up his stomping last week?
    Angus - Stands up to protect young Walker and provide the goods?
    Cleary - Gold standard, but will he get 80 if they're 30 ahead of a sh!t manly?
    Paps - Can he roll through the Broncs?

    Thoughts? I'm leaning Angus or Cleary

    U choose every week, you lose. 

    Cleary all the way. Less fun, but historically proven.

    Robinson was on 2GB this morning and mentioned Norths don't play this weekend so using the opportunity to expose Suaalii to the game day experience.
    Sounds like he'll warm up as 18th man and not actually play.

    (have new concussion rules taken effect yet? Maybe he can get a run that way if required. Poor Roosters if they hit 3 concussions again though)

    Angus has scored 67 and 54 this year.
    Cleary has 96 and 82.

    Sure Angus has the potential to go big in him, and Cleary might have a quiet one, but the odds are not in that favour.
    You will lose more often than you win taking that bet.

    Last time Penrith played Manly, they won by 30 and Cleary scored 105
