    Yeah, its possible. Not interested in creating a debate over what happens in a few weeks time there, as really, who fuckin knows. Manly's form might have a lot to do with how things pan out.

    I am actually tipping* a Manly win this afternoon Twisted Evil


    *my tipping is going poorly

    Oh yeah nothing to fret over, I’ve got manly 13+ haha. I’m a horrible gambler

    Think he can improve but he is still capable of a big score and is a decent placeholder until he becomes a Haas/Harris
    Wosrt case he might be a straight swap with Taumalolo in a few weeks if we get lucky and their prices meet

    So whats the consensus? Are we a bit iffy on Lussick now? That extra $90k over SOS could mean BS9 to round 13 gun

    Feel Lussick very much falls into that category. Started the season 3rd string behind Friend, Verills. Enough injury doubt around Lam/Keighran/Verrils returning & Hutchison changing role that his mins aren't safe. Purely getting his stats in tackles - nothing in terms of RM/KM/attacking stats makes his ceiling 40 at best. Robinson has already shown that even when starting he's happy to sub him after 30.

    Easy pass I reckon.

    Starling did pretty well last year as a 3rd choice hooker.

    I think if you have someone like Simmo, Croker or Leniu then a gamble on Lussick is not the worst option. Assuming you already have Walker, SOS, etc

    I think Starling's ability and skill as a dummy half far exceeds Lussick, but I can see what you are saying.

    Starts over Schuster maybe? He is a half playing 2nd row to be fair

    Schuster is their 3rd half, that deserves to be in the 13 that they are trying to find a spot for. He is also the only 107 kg half in the comp, that is the size of a 2nd rower and has played 2nd row before in lower grades.

    Gosi is the 2nd rower that Des would rather not play in the team and has already dropped on form this season.

    One has played well this season, the other hasn't, not even close.

    Been pretty impressed with Milf's efforts in defense the last two weeks truthfully.  Been sticking to tackles and the misses he's had weren't for the lack of effort.

    He was pretty vocal under the posts a couple of times too, trying to get the boys heads up and give them some direction. He has been putting in a better effort the last couple of weeks.

    I also agree with others, the second half on the bench is no way to insprire half number 1 on the paddock. Pick 1 and stick for a few weeks. I don't even care which one anymore.

    If you didn't bring him in the first week, at the moment there's nothing that makes him more attractive.

    I have SOS already so it's a tough one to say which player makes more.
    With SOS you know his role and have a better idea going forward so would rank him higher
    I am having slight doubts because I have seen several people mention Lussick is out for 2-3 weeks

    What does the 90k get you in comparison as an upgrade?

    Schuster appears to be one of the shining lights in that Manly team. Literally nothing going on with their attack at the moment they get within the 20m then piss away all sets afterwards. To be fair though they have been up against the heavyweights. He's not playing poorly in the 2nd row at all.

    EDIT: I had Manly to win or come close as well but then saw Cust was out and Croker's gonna have to play big mins. Not going to guess the game that the doggies/manly/broncos/cowboys come good again so staying away from any tips or bets supporting those teams

    When Sironen returns, they can either drop Gosi or Schuster, so yes we are talking about Gosi.

    Player in discussion was Haumole, and simply a suggestion that he could be a good cow, depending on what Des does.

    My 18-21 NPR this week currently is Liddle,Kenny,Niu,Ah Mau

    13-17 Bench is JBrailey,Egan,SOS,Walker

    My plan is to sell BSmith and play Ah Mau setting me up for the next couple weeks
    I was thinking might as well make some cash this week in Lussick and reduce my NPR cost
    Not a bad situation to be in with everyone doing well and all these playable halves appearing, but they could all become trade outs at similar times and need cash ready

    Should be able to do one trade from a Kenny/Liddle into Haas pushing Ah Mau back to NPR (To eventually be sold off)

    It's all a bit of a shuffle really timing trades and you never know if you get forced trades (Injuries) where you can't do what you had planned

    From fox: Jamal Fogarty is unlikely to play against the Knights according to Titans coach Justin Holbrook. Ash Taylor is expected to feature as a No.6 alongside halfback Tannah Boyd.

    With Cust out Croker doesn't become Lussick this week. Save the trade, cross the fingers.
