    No centre cover?

    I am finding WFB hard now probs can’t take Walsh or Savage round 1

    I have Holmes Thompson in the Centre with Alomoti in my 18-21.

    The WFB lineup i have hopefully at least 3/4 play every week. Have paid up for 1 solid C as im worried if you go to cheap there you have non players.

    Yep the Storm realised a pre season injury report an hour ago.

    Justin Olam (fractured forearm)

    After undergoing surgery on the arm injury he sustained in the pre-season match against the Roosters on Sunday, the PNG centre is expected to be sidelined for around six weeks.

    Ryan Papenhuyzen (knee)

    Paps continues to work hard on his rehab program, building strength in his right leg. If he continues to progress well, it’s hoped he will return to the field around rounds 6-8.

    George Jennings (knee)

    A medical illness in the new year has delayed the winger’s final stages of recovery from his ACL. He should be available by round four.

    Tariq Sims (calf)

    A calf injury has kept the former NSW Origin forward out of the trials. He is building towards a return to full training and should be available in the early rounds of the season.

    Marion Seve (knee)

    A cartilage issue has prevented Marion from training with the main group and playing in pre-season. His return date is TBC.

    I hope this means Warbrick gets a run on that left wing, we'll need a big winger to start sets well and he looked good in that trial. Knowing Bellamy though he'll put Ieremia in there and Anderson at centre and then wonder why our edge leaks points.

    As for the edge, I'm hoping this means that Sims doesn't get an edge spot at all (with Loiero and Katoa starting) and that he comes back in the middle.

    With TPJ playing middle along with M. King, Thompson and Sutton is it a concern they now cannonablise each other because of the mins? I was keen on Sutton

    I was already assuming they would do that, remember that Jackson was playing 70-80 minutes a game last year and someone has to get those minutes.

    Oh I know he knows what he's doing, I'm just biased because I want Warbrick as a cheapie, and just don't get the appeal of Ieremia. I was wrong about Seve and I hope I'm wrong about Ieremia too.

    Hmmm yeah Sutton should still get about 50mins you’d think.

    If G. Jennings is back round 4 though is it really worth getting Warbick?

    How has Warbick scored in reserve grade?

    Tonumaipea at centre would be the obvious solution, no?

    I think everyone here wants coaches to pick their round 1 squads based on fantasy prices.

    Every NRL team should be forced by law to have a $250k Fantasy CTR starting in their forward pack every year.

    He averaged 38.3 points per game, and in that scored 10 tries in his 14 games. Averaged 169 run metres a game in that sample, the main appeal of him is that he's a big winger who starts sets well and is good in the air.

    Only real issue I noticed with him in the trial is that he's a little bit slow to turn around (similar to Maika Sivo in that regard) since he's a big fella but I think the team would benefit a lot with him doing kick returns.

    Yeah I would think he'll play there, with either Warbrick or Ieremia on the wing (I hope it's Warbrick but we'll see who Bellamy picks)

    It's not even that with him, it's more so that Warbrick is a big winger who starts sets well and is good in the air, whereas Ieremia is smaller, not any faster and not that good in the air.

    My bold prediction is that the Bulldogs middle forwards are not going to start feasting on each others flesh (or cannonablise each other either).

    Love ya Rabs!!!

    With a bit of cash allows for some changes watching Bird’s role, E Butcher role

    Appreciate any comments
    Isn’t Alamoti that cheap TLT centre? Don’t get greedy! Who are you expecting?

    CNK’s future with Metcalf’s rise might not be so great.

    What about Suaali’i over Holmes? He’ll be DPP if named at Left centre.

    Just wondering if anyone could tell me if Warbrick is a big winger who can start sets off well? Beer
