    Koroisau got jabbed according to an article on SMH.

    Also-

    Asked whether he thought Cleary’s surgery-repaired shoulder would be right for the season opener against Manly, Koroisau said: “Of course he [will be fit].

    “He’s actually really good. Even when he first did his shoulder before the surgery, he was always 100 per cent doing everything. He’ll be there in round one because he knows how to look after himself, he’s a true professional.

    Ignoring everything else the reason they ran a 3 second rower rotation was due to the talent of Capewell, Martin and Kikau. Having 3 rep quality second rowers practically forces you to create a rotation that gives them all game time. Sorenson is a fringe first grader and not even close to the same talent as Capewell

    I think they find Kikau more effective playing in spells rather than staying on for 80, and that's behind most of the 3 2RF policy. But after that, yes, they wanted to give the third second rower (Martin) more than the spare 20 minutes so Capewell's minutes got shaved as well.

    I suppose it's possible that this year Martin does get 80 and Sorensen just comes on for Kikau's rest plus a bit of time in the middle, but it's a wait and see.

    Be interesting if Hopgood gets the last bench spot. Seems like Sorensen and Leniu are definites, last spot is probably up for grabs.

    Stopped raining in brisbane last night, so should be fine to play assuming they are happy with the state of the field.

    It does look like Josh is ahead of Moeroa in the pecking order, so he'll be a good option when there's an injury

    Eisenhuth's 58 minute average was bulked by starting in all but 4 games. So yes, he can play big minutes, but based on last season it appears they don't want him to. Yep he'd get the starting big minute role given an injury, but that's not what I was projecting/hoping for Leniu anyway.

    Martin only averaged 47 mins off the interchange, the 51 mins comes from some starts. So yep you're right I didn't really factor in the "role" a Martin replacement might play, but the minutes were all factored in. But let's say Sorensen is rated as highly as Martin for the edge replacement, that's an extra 9 minutes for Sorensen (or 9 minutes less for Leniu). But then again, that's also 9 minutes that Sorensen isn't playing in the middle, and perhaps that slots straight back into Leniu's role. Perhaps the change simply becomes:

    Martin becomes Capewell.
    Sorensen becomes Martin.
    Leniu becomes Sorensen.

    Bang, 38 minutes average.


    You are including the 3 cameo appearances off the bench in Origin for Martin's minutes, he averaged 51 minutes off the bench for Penrith.

    Tik Tok videos from last lockdown would suggest that isn't necessarily true

    Max was on nobody's radar until a week ago

    He had a decent run of forum in 2018 that would make him a great fantasy pick at min price, but has done nothing for 3 years since then. People are just getting excited about a couple of good runs in a trial match. If he goes well again tonight then even more people will be interested, but dogs still have a lot of forwards so not sure where the first grade role is going to come from

    If that happens, it is even worse for Leniu's minutes.

    To be fair I think he was gonna get a decent run with storm but got a season ending Injury from memory ... Achilles maybe?

    Kenny and Api both being on the field covering middle is also a strong possibility, the way that we have seen other teams doing often recently.

    Mann confirmed as starting lock for RD 1

    Is there much upside to him?

    seriously though, I'm picking him and will probably complain that no one talked me out of it

    TBH, It's not the worst pick - I doubt you lose money on it.

    That being said, what are you really hoping for with him?
    It's seems virtually impossible that he elevates to a 50+ keeper lever, and unlikely to elevate even to a reliable 40+ level - so is he playable, or a fairly costly reserve?

    If it's just a coin cow, then he probably makes $50k, maybe if you're lucky (or really lucky) it's $100-150k?
    Either way, the main cost is an opportunity cost on missing something else, and presumably there are better (starting) options than a bench Mid for a dominant forward pack with a fairly settled, experienced pack

    I think he is probably priced a little too expensive.

    My gut feel is a little bit of value but not enough to be worth it. Potential is there though if he gets a really big minute role.

    It was interesting to see how Barnett was used in the trial.

    Long time lurker, figured I would sign up.

    Does anyone know where I can get some NRLFF NFT's ?

    Do people feel that with the change back to penalties that the game will slow down slightly and the workhorses will become more relevant again with the drop of kick meters and tackle busts ?

    I think so. Especially mids that play big mins that like an offload
