    Considering playing Tass over Tago this week, the Rabbits love being flat track bullies and I feel like there’s going to be a lot of tries on offer for him to be a part of, also considering Ilias over Tuilagi on the bench for the same reason.

    Tago himself might not be a bad play given he'll be running at either Howarth or Seve, so either a debutant back rower or a dogshit centre that I can't fucking stand seeing in the 17.

    The Fog returning by rd13 is good news for the Raiders.
    I would have liked to keep Schneider for rd13, would the Raiders play both Fog & Schneider with Wighton at origin?

    I would imagine the Raiders will do that as Wighton will be away - but I still may sell him this week if Edrick gets ruled out (and thus won't lose me any more money)

    Given that Papy is now out 4-6 weeks, I'm considering going Meaney over Manu as long as he's named at FB in 2 hours time.

    Thoughts on which one is better?

    Benefits of Meaney:

    * 100k cheaper
    * Will be kicking goals
    * Playing fullback instead of centre for the next 3-5 games
    * Better attacking team and slightly better draw

    Benefits of Manu:

    * CTR dual and genuine keeper at CTR if slightly below the top tier of dual position guys
    * Plays round 13
    * Isn't on a time limit due to an injury
    * Likely to play 2-3 games at FB (R13 + either R14, R18 or both) where he historically averages a lot

    Manu is up against Eels, Panthers, and Sharks the next 3 games, I would not be keen to pick him up until after rd12

    I was looking to limp into R13 with Schneider, but I think if Fog is close I'll look to sell.

    Really tempted by Manu but the money game for him is R13 when he plays FB, and he’ll likely be cheaper then.

    Meaney going to go big but it might only be 3 games (but could also be 5). Depends on your risk appetite there.

    What’s your budget and does it have to be a WFB?

    Could really do with one of those four trade rounds right about now.

    Probably need to get rid of Pap, Hunt, Schneider, and Jones (and probably Tuilagi, Taaffe, and Thompson too).

    Volkman and Lussick also into the reserves. Didn't even realise those deals had gone through.

    Probably not too fantasy relevant, although Volkman might be a cashout at some point if he's as talented as the hype suggests?

    Offloading Nikorima gave them the cap space to get Volkman and Lussick now.

    Tohu named actually clears up my trades.

    Will stick with Jones/Tuilagi (depending on where Jones is named) to Elliott and Hunt to McInness this week. Pap at least won't lose money while Hunt will and Elliott/McInness will get out of reach. Can also use Pap for a loop at least since all my likely loop options (Jones/Ilias/Taaffe/Koula/Thompson) play before him.

    Can see if Tohu looks straight back to Mr Consistent 61-64. If he is, he's straight in for Pap as a R13 captain and POD. If not can reassess and Ted/Turbo etc should still be in reach.
