    You should also probably rethink your decision to have children (insincere apologies to those with a Jayden or variant thereof)

    People were dismissive of him, as he'd had purple patches in the past, but ultimately burned a lot of people. What was different this time such that he ascended into gun status?

    Was it Matto being played through the middle? In the past he'd been the edge but was a change of role for Matto the key?

    Related to the above, was it iPap being so dangerous on an edge that BA was forced to bring someone else through the middle to keep him out there?

    Was it the way his "purple patch" was being scored? Lots of minutes and lots of base as opposed to the try scoring of the past?

    Was it the opposite of above where Lane was getting more attacking stats than years past, and the Eels being a better and more consistent side helping that?

    Was it Dylan Brown taking more responsibility in attack, a buy signal for his corresponding back rower?

    What do you guys think, because in the future id like to buy and not miss this kind of opportunity.

    Could have been any of the above to be honest. The key lesson for me is not to rely too much on historical fantasy prowess and focus on more recent form/factors. Like many I defaulted to the tried and trusted like Haas, McInnes, Crichton etc, based more on pedigree than an objective assessment of who was going to score more points in coming weeks. Not to say, proven consistency and performance is not a relevant factor, but I tend to weight it too much in my trade decisions. A risk-averse approach, rather than risk-taking one. And the latter tends to get the biscuits in this game.

    Quite surprised Yeo and Koroisau have remained in the starting side. Would 100% have picked this week to give them a rest. I guess that's why I'm not an NRL coach.

    maybe the decision of having a rest was left up to the players

    Egan out for the Warriors ends any chance we were going to be slightly competitive in this game.

    50+ point win for Panthers here.

    Wonder if Munster gets WFB DPP in 2023

    Would be pretty sweet given CTR likely back to a shitfest with no OOP HLF/forwards. Started the underpriced excel on the weekend and will post soon - half the excel was whoever gets the Storm EDG
