    Haas, Turbo & AKP > Hynes, Drinky and Bula (+58k extra cash)

    Team would be:

    Cook
    Carrigan, Gilbert, Cheese
    Hosking, Preston,
    Cleary, Hynes
    Manu, Hammer
    Latrell, Drinky, Miller

    SJ, Ford, Boyd, iKatoa
    Alamoti, Couchman, kNik, Bula

    It's certainly tempting.

    Nothing wrong with trading him out if it means you're bringing in Hynes. Ditching Turbo is just an added bonus.

    All of the above plus he misses 3 of 4 between Origin 1 and 2, he was an insta-sell as soon as trades opened for me

    Yeah at least with my 3 trades I shouldn't have to play many complete nuffies:

    Cook
    Murray Horse Ford
    Preston Hosking
    Cleary Johnson
    Manu Null
    Ted Drinky Miller

    BS9 Boyd Crossland (Haas)

    Granville IKatoa Niko Alamoti

    (loop Granville but probably play I Katoa)

    Yeah, I think so. He was always a sell before Origin even if he was playing/scoring well, and there's too much danger of losing money now. Of course, he could still have a couple of huge games and make it look like a bad trade out, but seems unlikely.

    This would be my team for the week if I don’t trade.

    JMK
    Carrigan, Tino, Cheese
    Preston, Ford
    Hynes, Cleary
    Manu, Lemmy
    Teddy, Miller, Perham

    SJ, Boyd, Sele, Niko
    Alamoti, Katoa, Loiero, Warbrick


    It’s definitely seems possible to play one of Niko/Sele and loop the other with Alamoti?

    I should probably be looking at byes, but an alternative would be same trade outs (Loiero, Carty, Turbo) to Bula, Manu and Fifita.

    You could make that decision with or without a brain I reckon. I am not sure which one would be better Laughing

    Banking trades would be a POD move. Most won't be able to. Not a bad play imo.

    Probably depends what position you need, but Teddy a lot cheaper. Roosters looking good again. Probably Ted

    Probably move early on Hosking to free up some funds to turn Turbo into someone more solid and give myself positional balance and another R13 player. Him or Preston would probably go before the byes anyway and Hosking likely at peak value in the low/mid 50s.

    Hosking to Lane
    Turbo to Horsburgh

    Slight risk of Origin for one or both of those, which will screw things up, but just have to cross fingers.

    Set up this week like this:

    Robson
    Hors Ford JDB
    Difita(v) Lane
    Cleary(c) SJ
    Bird Hammer
    Manu Ted Walsh

    Cheese Preston (Haas) (Loiero)
    Miller IKatoa Bula BMM

    It just hard to see Turbo scoring well (if he even plays) and not shedding loads of cash too. And like you said, he was always an eventual sell. I think I have to suck it up and cop the potential 15 from Bula

    Glass half full - Sloan is an absolute liability and keeps pumping out decent fantasy scores, Bula could do the same maybe?

    If I knew that Tohu Harris was going to be out for an extended period I would trade in Curran without a worry....

    But I half expect him to line up in ROUND 10.

    What to do? He is always so cagey about his injury status and I have already held him through a few weeks of knee uncertainty

    This is the most detailed info I can find

    I bought him in this week past when he was named to start. Feels naughty, but like, the good kind of naughty. The hope is he can make his 150k and then be a 35 point hooker round 13.

    With DPP potentially..

    I'm up to 346th overall but need a MID and Hooker to trade in this week with Haas and Grant out..

    Can afford Hosking, Miller and AKP to Latrell, B.Smith and Sipley by 3k..

    But then I saw Manly's bench with Bullemor and Lawton there. Anyone think Sipley's minutes are too iffy at that price range or is it worth the risk? I need more R13 players as I have 4-5 max at this stage and they're all chumps..

    Reckon Loiero has a decent chunk, maybe 100k more, to make?

    definite sell, last two weeks he barely looks like having any impact on the game, meaning he will not score fantasy points
