    So bringing in Mam would be... a Gamble?

    Depends how many trades you have, I would say it’s too risky for most

    Given Gamble was training at 6 yesterday and Man was with the reserves until Gamble picked up an injury, what do you think?

    I would be happy for Mam to gun it and keep the spot however as he is the future. I was just of the opinion he wouldn't replace gamble unless an injury occurred which has happened but plenty of players have come in and kept the position on merit this year.

    Cody Walker did just fine next to Reynolds. Mam isn't relying on kick meters to score well, is a strong runner of the ball and creates opportunities, very much in the Cody mold.

    Mam is not Cody though, still very green behind the ears and I don’t think he has Cody’s temperament to demand opportunities the way Cody did

    Looking like now or never. I think he is worth (more than) the Gamble.

    Having owned Cody over many seasons, he was typically lazy and uninvolved most of the game, occasionally showed up to score well for a few minutes each game. Mam has a much higher ceiling of who he could be.

    If only Turner played the second bye I’d probably be keen

    Very few playable players in that price range that play round 17. Averaging 51.

    Worth the risk for me to pick up a bargain 17th / 18th man if it works out.

    Kevvy talks about Mam being his future 6, was all just a matter of when. He is finally getting his chance to cement the spot.

    I agree Mam looks the goods. If I had loads of trades I would take the Gamble.

    Seems Gamble training at 6 is the preferred option until injured.

    You know Payten mentioned a few weeks ago apparently that he preferred origin players did back up. So it isn't set in stone they won't. See how banged up they are

    I've probably made worse trade-ins than Mam but it's because I've made worse trade-ins than Mam that I can't justify trading in Mam.

    Way my team is structured and trades have been blown can probably afford to bring in one low-price player before the bye, and he'd have to stay in the squad as 20/21 cover all season. Also half is where I have most depth. Better off waiting for Kennedy to bottom, at least I know he'll keep his spot.

    I have 15 trades and still don't feel confident in Mam.

    Mam is a very decent bet but you got to hope they win next match or Gamble probably back in.

    Don't expect a 51 average playing with Reynolds either, just doesn't have the base to maintain that scoring long term.
