    Is he even going to be playing first grade next week.  That's the real question.

    i. thompson no. 19
    lawton no. 20 - if he's not in the 17 will get warbricks 33 points...i could trade lawton to lemuelu & swap boyd

    thoughts & thanks

    Lemuelu will likely lose his spot soon and will be a trade out

    Teeth Eater wrote:Anyway, haven't looked at tonight's scores yet, so I'll take a glance.

    Just a couple of bullet points on what I scrapped last night;

    Carty - don't think I was quite as down on this as others may have been? Far as I can see, as long as Lane is not back next week, the party lives on, does it not? It will for me anyway, and I don't mind dancing alone in the corner of a darkened room to Roxus' 'Midnight Love.'

    And that was about it. Only really commented on Teddy and Carty with any interest. Anyway, let's have a peek at tonight's scores;

    Tago - what a game.

    Cleary - thank you, captain. Nice gauntlet to lay down for Hynes (though I'm sure he'll be up to it).

    Yeo - ridiculously solid.

    Hosking - nice. I'll take that, and how close he was to two tries. Just hope he sticks around.

    L.Smith - what a game. Loved his enthusiasm. Crazy PPM.

    Sorenson - cheeky little one week play in Draft with Barnett and Paulo both out this week. As I pat myself on the back I look back at myself and give myself a positive (and somewhat suggestive, if I do say so myself) smile.  NRL Fantasy 2023 Part 26 - Return of the HosKing - Page 26 Giphy

    Tapine - needed a good score from him this week, but I'll take this in the contest that this was.

    Turuva - just to level things up, and un-pat my back, I brought Sorenson in for this dude in my Draft team. Stacked with WFB options, I am, but maybe this should have been one I kept. Loved that first try. Good going, young man.

    CHN - (37), wasn't he pretty much on that score at half time?

    S. Crichton - lol, 7 with a try.

    Jeez, not surprising given the nature of that game, but that is some terrible Fantasy scoring for pretty much the entire Canberra team. Thank sweet relief the only one close to a pass mark is the only one I have in my team.

    Game two;

    Wow @ all five of those top scorers. Especially Josh King. Is he the best cash cow of the season so far in 2023? Good night for any and all owners of those top 5.

    E.Katoa - bit of a downer that he couldn't get amongst the scoring tonight. Always next week, though.

    Warbrick - as mentioned above, did he really just score 3 points in the second half? Solid to get to 30, but, what could have been. Would still rather not be playing him in my 17.

    And that's about it. Weird night of footy. Just couldn't get into that second match for some reason. Seemed like an engaging enough contest, but just wasn't feeling it. First one was okay, mostly just enjoying (C)leary and Hosking's Fantasy points, and even Tapine's given the nature of the duel.

    Teddy thing got my weekend off to a bad start, but tonight was overall a bit better. Onto tomorrow to see what comes along...  

    TLDR - you had a bad week at fantasy and you want to give your penis a little squeeze to make you feel better

    At the risk of sounding ungrateful or greedy, I wondered if anyone knows when I get my Cleary phantom points?

    When I used my hard earned savings on buying Mr Cleary earlier this week, it said on the packaging that I would get extra points outside game time, but it appears that this was misleading?

    Who do I email? Do I need to contact Geoff Toovey? because something is very very wrong as I only have received 1 point.

    Sincerely
    Concerned citizen

    Very old school but I like smiths original (blue bag, crinkle cut) and I put them in the fridge for a bit before eating….could be psychological trick but swear it makes them taste saltier and crisper

    Can't go wrong with a pack of classic Smiths. I can't get enough Salt'n'Vinegar.

    I like the Red Rock Deli (both plain salted and saltnvinegar) but they're always too expensive now so usually just go for the Smiths version. The Sweet Chili and Sour Cream Red Rock Deli are also amazing, hot tip eat them with avocado dip. Mind blown.

    Chicken chips bottom tier stuff.

    There's a reasonable chance that the live scoring on footystatistics.com will auto update every 10 seconds or so, without having to manually refresh page.

    Unlikely to be in the majority here, but I’m a fan of the Smith’s oven baked chips. I say this as I chow down on a 28g bag of Red Rock Deli sour cream and sweet chili. Hmmm, don’t have any avocado dip in the fridge, must remember for future snack time.
