    You have had a good start Beth, was the pretty standard calm going Hopgood, will be with the majority

    Yeah I'm not too fussed about my captaincy pick this week, I've learned from last year that playing a straight bat with captaincy picks (especially early in the year) is generally the best way to go.

    I went another way because after a shit start I wanted to play gut captain roulette and go against the grain. I figured Hopgood would be the number choice after his red hot start and pivoted

    Was still expecting him to get 55-60 as well mate, just know my guy is going LARGE this week

    Yeah, I think most players who didn't Captain Hopgood would still have been expecting to see around a 60 mark (hoping a little less, but probably expecting a little more).

    Its an easy thing to say in hindsight that Hopgood was a bad C call but it looked pretty good regardless of hyperbola. Tbh I definitely did not expect another 80 but figured a 60ish score was a reasonable ask in 65-70 mins given the way he'd been playing.

    After the first two rounds, it was pretty obvious he was playing too many minutes under fatigue but I didn't think Arthur would cut him back so much this week.

    I got a bit spooked about Cook against Roosters, just a gut feel that it would be one of those types of games where he only gets around 45-50

    Yeah, non-captainer but my floor for him would've been 45-50, not low 30s. Wasn't a bad decision at all

    I captained Hopgood because of Snatch not Matt. Although I suppose in the end mostly I captained him because of me.

    10am on the coast here, 29 degrees. Is it OK to feel like a beer whilst doing OT ?

    I just checked the odds at PalmerBet - 1.95 for you rage-quitting the forum again before/after R9.

    Given this morning's thread, I'm in for 20 bucks on under at this point (but if you want to PM me a tip then I'll happily add it to the snowflake multi I'm running with WL's concussion post ban and GenderBender turning out to be Rabbits).

    If it's acceptable any day, I'd say St Patrick's Day is it.

    Fwiw, it's 29 and 70% humidity here and I've just mowed the lawn. By the time I get the edges done it will definitely be Guinness o'clock

    Angus Crichton out of rehab, and looks like planning an NRL return

    Sounds promising for Angus, even if the return to footy ends up being longer than planned.

    All I want from fantasy this week is a good score out of Staggs.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Hopgood was battling an illness the way the trainer kept checking on him and the extended stint on the bench that was only broken by Doorey's injury. I'm just grateful he came back and scored another 22 points. Feel like freebies tbh.

    Manly attacking Parra's right edge through Schuster, Trbo and Garrick had a lot of success. Less action from DCE and Haumole than I expected, with the latter's two tries coming off a kick and intercept, so no LBs or TBs.

    Good on him

    Hope this is a new precedent for the media and all issues with footy players stemming from personal issues are treated this carefully and sensitively, even those where it comes to light in the public domain. Nagging feeling they won't be for reasons.
