I think Cook will be rested this year as he was too burnt out at end of last season. I can see him resting after one of the origins and in another couple of games coming off with 15mins left it we are well ahead.@rhinoceroo wrote:On the "who to trade Brailey to, there are no ubergun hookers" question, the only real possibility is Cook.
Historically doesn't rest between Origin so they should play the same amount of minutes for the rest of the season and Cook does have bigger upside. Still seems very sideways though. Would be worth it if NSW lose on Wednesday and Cook gets dropped, becoming a Round 17 player, but can't see that happening.
On another note just noticed some of the players prices didn’t go up as much as I thought. The magic number must have changed. Alvaro losing 6k more than I anticipated as well not ideal.
Early thoughts are I’ll maybe look to get Shaun Johnson in, thoughts on that? I know he’s injury prone but he should keep getting massive kick metres and he goal kicks. He’s playing for a contract elsewhere as well and plays round 17. To me his job security looks pretty good as well. He looks very good value at 606k.
