    I think you’re probably right. Hope he hasn’t outsmarted himself.

    I thought C choice this week was a bit tricky with potential for more resting etc. I put VC on Teddy last night just to be sure I had a backup.

    If the Sharks lose by say 16, then all the Titans have to do is win by 8 right ? It seems to easy.

    I’m looking forward to seeing Pene and Lewis on the edges tonight. Hopefully they see 80 mins

    I wouldn't trust Fanhub to be able to implement that kind of system flawlessly.

    And if they did, every week we would have 5 million questions about how to set a team up properly.

    You are probably right, they will make a mess of it, then we'll have to restart the season from scratch after a couple rounds.
    If only they had the expertise of someone like @SI

    It's taken quite a few months, but MTB and I have finally come to an agreement and signed off on my Consultancy fee for the next 3 years. So I am happy where I am at again.

    FanHub's offer was tempting from a purely financial pov, but part of the decision was knowing I couldn't sleep at night leaving MTB flailing around for a replacement.

    I've been working on some ideas over the past few weeks. Noticed one of them is kind of handy for doing end of season post mortem's. Here is (the current) 1st overall:

    Haha just looks like jumping on flavour of the week every week and it working out long term.
    Will do that next year, no need to use your brain at all might come in handy

    Rank isn't calculating correctly

    Edit: Just realised it is Bank. Rank would be more useful to understand their progress.

    Yeah, it's almost a bit embarrassing really - nothing magical in there for sure.

    At the risk of offending everyone including myself, would it be fair to say that none of us have played that well this year.

    This year Jumping on the flavour of the week has worked well on the whole, next year you'd almost bank on it not working as well...

    This seems like a pretty disingenuous take to me

    He wasn’t playing 4D chess but hardly no use of brain

    Be handy to know his starting squad, that’s probably where you make the most ground, not trading

    Unbelievably he was 3 weeks late on both Cleary and Turbo, the 2 most important players to have this season. Also 7 rounds late on CHN, didnt get iPap until round 18, Curran round 23! Are you sure this was the guy that came 1st?

    The only good things that seemed to work in his favour were ditching guys early when they were injured long term or suspended like Papy and Fifita. Must have got really lucky being able to field 17+ each week.

    Guy in first started with Tauk, No Cleary, traded Croker out after round 1. never got iPap (or did he start with him?)

    Made good trades after the first few rounds. Made a lot of right calls on trading people in/out - a lot of which was a calculated risk at the time, but most of his paid off.
    But key takeaway is that almost no starting team is unsalvageable

    I brought in Hughes but there a rumours that he will get a rest during the game, I wonder if I should reverse.
