    932 for the round, 6,474th overall. Couldn’t cover Roberts being a late out, so ended up playing 16.

    22 trades left, $3k in the bank

    Brailey
    Haas, Crichton, Watson
    Fifita, Harris
    Cleary, Moses
    Bird, Roberts
    Teddy, Turbo, Papy

    Schuster, Simpkin, Utoikamanu, Alvaro
    Laurie, Walker, Walsh, Niu

    If Roberts or Niu don’t suit up, we’ll need another centre this week...

    Could take a punt on Cini to fill the CTR spot if wanting a cheap option and he sticks around.

    Uto's BE is his average at 37 this week.
    Alvaro pretty close with a 41 BE and 40 avg.

    If people want to convert someone into a definite keeper option. Annoyingly they both play Rd 13, but still a ways off yet.

    JRob to Cini is my initial thought though. Niu frees up more cash, but feel like he turns back up the minute he's traded Laughing

    Roberts to Cini makes sense to me. No other trades needed at this point.

    Going through the team

    All these playersd are keepers, at least for the medium term

    Brailey
    Haas, Crichton, Watson
    Fifita, Harris
    Cleary, Moses
    Bird
    Teddy, Turbo, Papy

    Schuster, Laurie, Walker, Walsh
    Simpkin

    That's 12 of our starting 13 sorted to take us to the byes. Unless they get injured I don't think its worth spending a trade upgrading any of them.

    Walker, Schuster, Walsh are definitely playable in the 17. Walsh and Simpkin are maybes. But even if we don't play them we want them in our 21

    Remaining guys who we may want to think about playing with
    Roberts, Stefano, Alvaro, Niu

    Niu and Roberts aren't playing so can be passed on whenever someone decent turns up to replace them.
    Stefano and Alvaro are just about maxxed in price. We can hold them for the byes, but IMO we shouldn't do so at the expense of a good pickup. If a good cheapie appears they will make up for the 35 points we lose come bye rounds.

    Obviously we want a CTR this week.
    Wait for team lists before seeing who is around, but Cini looks like he could be an option. With the Roosters injuries Suaalii might even make an appearance.

    So Roberts or Niu -> Cini is one option. What’s Feagai’s job security like? how long are Lomax, Pereira and Ravalawa out for?

    the other option i can see is Papy -> Peachey. With Laurie and Walsh, we have a bit of depth at WFB. Might make sense if you assume Papy plays Origin and Peachey doesn’t.

    Pereira out for 2 more. Rava just this week. Both suspensions.

    Lomax still unconfirmed, but an NRL.com article says "expected to face about a month".

    Annoying about Pap, but I'm hopeful it's just 1 more week.
