    Nah, I need players this week.  Wanted to punt Uto and APK but don't have that luxury.  Early thoughts;

    ITT - Niko
    CNK - Cheese

    Moves APK to 18th man,  I'm not sure I want to sell Grant now.  I was going to but really don't want to.  Gives me;

    Smith
    Uto Ford Murray
    Hosking Fifita
    Cleary Katoa
    Alamoti Bird
    Ted Bula Miller

    Boyd Preston Manu Niko

    APK Grant Haas Loiero

    22 trades left and 55K.  I think I'm happy with that for this week.  Granville the only other one I'm interested in.  Will mull over Grant.  Could get Robson but might take a chance him dropping some more coin.


    Yeah I’m in a pickle now. ITT is my only cover for ctr/wfb

    Maybe go to Bula and upgrade CNK to Null? Not sure, don’t trust Tigers players

    Granville and Sipley options too, though their prices are awkward

    Who would you keep out of Loiero and Katoa?

    Loiero is looking really good lately. I'd keep him.

    Is there any official word (from NRL, Warriors) on whether CNK misses R10 too? I think it's yes, but guidelines/exemptions are very vague (almost contradictory).

    That’s an easy desicion for mine, Loeiro trending up, Katoa trending down, if you don’t have plans for Katoa as a keeper, it’ll be a while before he’s making money again

    I got Bula last week. I think he's safe for a few weeks at least. I'd be wary now though for sure. Maybe look at Ponga for WFB? Not sure on your team.

    Yeah that's fair. Also apologies, it wasn't meant to be a demand, anytime between now and my scheduled shower at 715pm Thursday is good. Appreciate the work you put into it and share

    Looking at trading:
    Katoa, Talau, Alamoti > Smith, Drinkwater, Granville

    Should be some decent upgrades.

    Haven't checked prices/BE but on face value like Lane because of the 13/16/19 availability. Can be a R14 trap though (but so is Haumole). I think Young is a tier below.

    How many knights, eels and manly players do you have / plan to have at round 13. Can only have 3-4 max of them in round 14.

    Team from last round is

    Boyd
    Haas Murray JDB
    Hosking Host
    Cleary SJ
    Bird Manu
    Ted Miller CNK

    Moses Preston Loiero Ford
    Niko IKat Luke ITT

    Ford can cover Haas so I don’t necessarily need a mid. Host was a mistake and intend to correct it immediately

    Main need though is a WFB, and no CTR cover as well

    I think the fact it’s his second means he misses both weeks.

    With the Couch getting big minutes again and carrying DPP into the bye rounds, would you HOLD or trade for Sipley (as part of a multi player trade).

    I feel like trading for Sipley may lead to a repeat of the couch trap and I’m better off being patient.

    Turbo & AKP > Young & Bula?

    Or go big balls with Turbo & Hosking > Hynes & Bula?

    Yeah that's my read

    I look at the exemption list that's been posted before and my take is getting an exemption if you fail Cat 2 is very difficult. Going to be very rare to backup.
