    If you don't Captain, it gives you a chance to reverse your trade if you get cold feet.... or that could be a good thing

    Yeah thinking this way too mate, would be hoping for a 60+ from him easy

    The only issue is that it locks him in, but I would consider making an exception for him.

    Even with almost 300k in the kitty, only player I can realistically let go for Cleary is Cook.

    and Cookie looked like he was going back to his running best

    I would have Randall and Starling still, but not keen on letting him go

    My team looks so good, but as of this week it will only look good for a Clearyless team- and everyone knows that doesn't count! Going to vindictively deathride this pointy chinned motherfucker harder than I have ever deathrided any other fantasy player, cranking the pettiness all the way up to 11.

    In some ways it's going to be harder for teams who've started well to get Cleary straight in because by definition they're less likely to have high-value players they want to trade (and it's too early for non-keeper cows like Randall or the Kings to have peaked).

    Should I be happy to own Mahoney and Crichton?

    I don’t really know who to bring in for him.

    Already have the kings and Leo.

    Tempted to go left field and get rapana. Just love watching him play and rack up bullshit points.

    Will generate a bit of Cleary. I’ve got no obvious route to Cleary at this stage, I’ll get him as soon as I can, sensibly. Need a good cheapie to come for maximum cash out.

    If Angus is benched again then it's a no brainer to get rid of him. However I do think there's a chance he'll be back in a starting spot this week. Sitili defending next to Walker has been a bit of a weak point and Angus is a better defender so might see some team tinkering. Roosters haven't really got it right so far.

    Even if he is named on bench, every chance they start him. Because fuck it why not.

    I’m tempted to go Crichton to rapana. Move L.Thompson to starting line up, rapana to ctr and bench penisy.

    I was lucky to start with Mahoney, Tolo and Uto... so now I can afford to bring Cleary in without sacrificing someone like Haas or Fifita

    Angus went last week for Starling and Mahoney will be straight swapped for Cleary (maybe). I’m usually quite conservative but tbh very few fucks have been given about trading them out. Plus I really need a decent Captain

    The decision was easy because of how they are scoring….if I had Haas and Ipap it would be much, much harder

    I don't mind a bit of a pivot in the early rounds of the season. It's a crucial time to set your team up well.

    I've gone from "absolutely no trades. Be sensible, be patient" to "fuck it Fifi/Clifford to Cleary/Jones, I'm gonna have to trade him in at some point why not now" in the space of 30 minutes. Will probably change team 50 times before Tuesday, coinflip as to where it ends up.

    My ONLY worry is looking at this years halves with dominant KM, and not scoring as well as previous, but that has all ben factored into the cost hasn't it?

    They've factored in the change in scoring to kicks metres and TBs

    They haven't factored in any changes to NRL rules around 6-agains/penalties and the resulting slowing down of the game. Cleary may or may not be effected by the new NRL rules interpretations, but overall fantasy scoring has dropped across the board this year.

    Rolling Laugh

    It’s Cleary Fever!
    The most practical way for me to get Fifita>Cleary is by Sexton>Starling, but that is just too damn annoying as I may as well have just straight up thrown a trade in the bin, and I think that would hurt more than not owning Cleary.
