    Sounds like it's been a really tough recovery. Hoping it goes smoothly and the wait will be worth it. The NRL isn't the same without that glorious mullet tearing up and down the field.

    First month would be great news, I was under the impression he'd be out until round 10 or so.

    Just watched the Titans game, they have a lot of really good young talent coming through Kini, Haas Jr, Tino Jr, Weaver.

    Anyone think Robbo will rest Teddy at some point this season? Massive 2022, backing up again... got a player like Sualli'i and Manu who are both capable of FB... there hasn't been any official word but Robbo does really like to manage workloads.

    Alamoti
    Stone (bench)
    Talau
    Luke (bench but mail is he'll play 50-55 off the bench)
    AKP
    Trbojevic
    Matamua
    Moale (bench but should benefit from Sele's injury)
    George Jennings (could be Warbrick instead)
    Doorey (if he doesn't start it'd likely be Momoisea who is also 250k)
    Paix (bench)
    Colquhon


    My opinion on the list mentioned, there's also Sloan, Perham, Izaac Thompson and Siua Wong if Angus is actually out

    Corey Parker getting 4 points for offloads and turnovers would've been something else #FantasyImmortal

    So my team - feel the balance is okay (although completely sacrificing ctr)

    Robson
    Tapine Elliott Sutton
    Hopgood E Butcher
    Cleary Hynes
    Alamoti TLT Ctr (250k)
    Walsh Miller Perham

    Stone Smith Katoa TMM

    Genning AKP Talau Wong (or best 4 TLT cheapies)

    79k

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

    Appreciate any comments

    I really like the look of him in the trial just had that bit more than the others and some great footwork to get those tackle breaks / line breaks. The Cows have some outstanding young forwards with Dunn coming back Luki to return Leilua out (would be a big loss for most teams) and losing Gilbert and co their pack is still strong with depth.

    Plus whoever gets picked to replace Savage could also be at bottom dollar

    Nice balanced team with both Cleary and Hynes and fiiting Walsh in.
    Some interesting anti-podding too with no Garner or Hammer.

    Depends how the Roosters are travelling. Last year he didn't get the opportunity to rest much because they had too many must-win games.

    If they are well into the top 4, then there will be restings around origin for sure.

    Makes RFM a bit more interesting, assuming he gets the other edge spot.

    Kikau more likely to get rested, meaning more secure minutes for the other edge. RFM 10+ points underpriced as an 80 minute edge player.

    Hmmm... defined, simplified role is good. If he starts and gets approx Vaughan's minutes (50ish) then there's a load of upside (as well as stress)

    Only concern is the emergence of Preston and RFM training in the middle when preston is withs 1sts
