    Speaking of attacking stats.
    I wonder which will happen first (assuming they at some point happen)

    - Twal gets a try
    - Carrigan gets a line break

    Must be Twal.  Sheensy wouldn't lie...

    “One of the first times I saw ‘Sheensy’ he looked me in the eyes and said ‘mate we’re going to get you a try’ and he meant it from his heart,” Twal told foxsports.com.au.

    I toyed with omitting Smith but couldn't justify possessing other 500-600k players that do not offer the same level of safety as Smith (good scoring history + ownership). Good luck to those who bucked the tide - who did you take or prioritise over Smith?

    Cheese is too highly owned to anti-pod IMO. Its not like a dicey Garner/Loiero edge pick. At hooker he has a career average of 52.6 playing 64.7 minutes and 55.9 playing 69 minutes- priced at 40. With hooker stocks slim for value, the chance of one averaging 10-15 points above his average is gold. Sometimes the popular players are popular for good reason.

    Edit- I also think the new rule changes really help crafty hookers like Smith that bulldose for the line. His nickname should have been Wombat.

    I went with welch in a round-a-bout way.

    Welch score good but i did hope he'd play around 60. I didnt think Bellamy would use King for the huge min role with Welch back.

    Smith might be a trade in for me after their bye. We'll see. I sort of hope he starts slow and Robbo gives him a fair rest. Risky though.

    I have Garner who is an obvious problem it appears.

    He said neither of his props are getting extra minutes, when they have a MID crisis.

    No Smith for me meant I was able to start the season with 6 guns, compared to what was looking like 5 otherwise

    Storm had lots of injuries they needed to cover as well. King picked up the extra minutes.

    Yeah that's fair enough, in all honesty not picking Smith is a mistake, but ehhh Beer

    Wishart covering injuries to munster and coates doesnt really impact the mids though, unless bellamy intended to use wishart at lock

    Speculation because Preston is edge and Brown at lock doesn't make sense and been chatter about RFM playing some middle this season and Sutton prop with Thompson out

    It seems I've left myself in a position where I:

    a) play Preston in my 17
    b) play I Katoa in my 17
    c) Put someone like BMM at 17 and take Warbrick's 29
    d) Play my final undecided cheapie at 17. Will be Talau if I want centre cover, but I'm thinking of passing and going without centre cover and targeting Bird in the next couple of weeks. Otherwise final guy could be Blore, Stone, Haas if named, AKP, Moale, Pele.

    Obviously if Preston is promoted in two hours, that's my decision. Otherwise leaning towards playing Katoa/waiting for Sunday team lists. Grateful for any thoughts.

    After Ciraldo prop comments what do people think Dogs forwards minutes will be?
