    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

    Yeah I'd totally forgotten about that also, St Pats.
    Think humidity here is just saying 40.
    No lawm will be mowed today, no edging either Excited

    I've got a nagging feeling that Brandon Smith is going to spite me for trading him out this week....but with Doorey and probably Trindall out already next week it's probably sensible not to reverse it

    I also thought that more people didn't captain Hopgood....did everyone change their mind at the last minute?

    Much as it pains me I reckon it's probably BMM out of that lot, mainly because it looks like the Dragons have SFA edge forwards (although you would be better placed to make a judgement on this).

    Uto is a 35 point player who is priced over $400k
    Leo is Leniu
    Cheese if you have him and won't be in trouble with red dots next week is an option
    BMM will get minutes and underwhelming scores but will make money
    I have had Sutton from the start but he isn't going to make enough money to be worth it now....alright if you want 45 points

    Kevin Walters says he expects Pat Carrigan to play tomorrow against the Dragons after completing captain’s run. Brendan Piakura on extended bench as a precaution.

    Not the last one, although wouldn't say no. (my answer for that one would be D by the way. A if I was 25 instead of 40)

    It's for hold/buy, and play at times (in the case of Cheese you'd hope he comes out of the bye with healed ribs and is playable all the time)

    Leaning BMM for cash reserve reasons. Just not inspired by a chonky edge that doesn't have the stamina to play 80

    I bought him for Cheese this week (well technically I bought Preston for Cheese and BMM for Talau) and I'm not loving it but it seems sensible

    He looks like he is hard to hurt and will keep walk/running his way to 30 points most weeks

    Too early to say it's a trend... both teams coming off the byes this year have won.

    Eels played Many coming off a bye last night, and next play Panthers and Roosters who will also both be coming off byes.

    Good news but wasn’t concerned on that one, felt like it was a bit blown up. The Doohickey one is the concerning one. Could be wrong but it feels like it’s a lot of smoke and mirrors at the tigers.
    On that note I’ve got to credit the sharks as well, been no bullshit with having Hynes sitting at 19/20 each week in the team lists, great for fantasy coaches.

    Yeah based on how its gone so far, I think it's tempting fate to have 3 possible non starters after only one game played this round.
