    Good work, You look better placed than the guys currently in 2nd/3rd for potential carnage this weekend (don't know if they have any trades left), so staying in first a real possibility

    I'm in 8th, but 0 trades left and don't think I can make a massive jump

    Toafofoa Sipley was the hero this week, injuries meant I had to play him, and he rewarded me with 86 points.

    Yeah I’ve got depth across most positions so I’m hopeful of holding on but hard to know until teamlists come out. Especially without knowing how many trades others have (I used my last ones this round).
    86 from Sipley sounds like a godsend for you, a lot more than expected when you had to plug him in! Good luck for the last round and fingers crossed you stay in the top 10 for a cash prize.

    At least 10 fanatics in the top 25 overall.
    I somehow stumbled into first place for about 6 weeks early in this season. Back then was thinking this can't last and a top 50 finish would be cool. Now coming into the last round I'm 7th. Crazy for me. Reckon I can now finish in the top 10 which is something I've never dreamt about.
    And I hope UKJC can win.

    Congrats to all the highly ranked fanatics.

    Pre-team lists, current PoD match-ups for the eliminator final:

    Me vs Him
    Walsh vs CNK
    Munster vs Olakau'atu
    Cook vs Simpkin
    Lemuelu vs Ramien
    AFB vs Tapine
    Yeo vs Horse
    Tino vs Harris

    Of those PoDs, sounds like Walsh, Munster, and Yeo are in doubt for me, and Horse and Harris for him (does Simpkin come back into the Tigers team?). Plus we've both got Grant, Haas, Manu, Garrick and Ponga, so who knows how many players we end up with. He has a couple of potential reserves in JFH and Timoko who could come in to make up some numbers.

    It's probably less about survival of the fittest and more about survival...

    14 green dots, including Horse.
    That's as many as I have in Fantasy, despite the extra 4 players in the squad.

    No trades left, so just got to let it ride and hope fun things happen.

    I’m down to 16 now Horse is suspended, no trades. Hard to know how that stacks up against others at the top end as no way of knowing how many trades they’ve got left.

    Even assuming they had trades, the other top teams still only have about 12-14 - so you are in a great position mate.

    Don't want to jinx you - but let's just say you might want to reach out to some mates to get an Aussie residential address so you can update your personal details......

    I had already looked at the option of changing the address but looks like can’t change any personal details on the account such as name/address yourself & need to contact them to do it. Unfortunately can’t see them falling for that one with only a week left to go in the comp.

    Worth a shot

    Doesn't cost them anything, they pay the same prize anyway,

    I have had Howarth since round 1 (mainly because of his 2nd/CTW dual) and funnily, when we are scrambling for scorers, he gets a run. I hope he can come on and score a double.
    Good luck Jele.........

    Oof, 79 for Sailor vs 37 for Howarth. Walsh’s absence hit me both ways!

    Round 1 to Corn on the Cobbo. Next up his Olokau’atu and Simpkin.

    94 for Haumole Rip and 29 for Simpkin balanced out by 59 from Cook and 76 from new recruit Cam Murray. So I’m still 30 points behind. We both looped DCE as VC.

    Tomorrow looking like Lemu and Yeo (me) vs JFH and Marzhew (him).

    Slowly clawing back Corn on the Cobbo’s lead in the Eliminator final but it’s been hard work. Marzhew and JFH basically matched Lemu and Yeo. Just grateful Yeo suited up.

    26 points behind, Tino up next for me. Will come down to the last match of the round…

    Looks like you’ve won going off the above? Congrats mate!

    I finished up with 976 from 15 after Manu’s withdrawal. Hoping it’s enough to hold onto that top spot.
