I can cash out 3 expensive CTRs and WFBs to upgrade other positions.
I could do with a cashout and love a DPP with a negative BE as much as the next guy, but VTW is not without risk, given he's an injury fill-in and the Dolphins don't play for two weeks so there's no visibility on whether he stays in the team.
I mean, he played great BUT the takeaways from Wayne's comments on him afterwards were:
1. Yeah, he's an attacking weapon but has a lot to learn in defence. (unsaid: in reserve grade)
2. He's the sort of personality who's a big game player and the bigger the occasion the better he'll be (unsaid: this was his high point)
3. He did a haka after the game? Good for him, I didn't know had the fitness to do that. (unsaid: he's a lump)
Might have to take the risk on him as think I need an NPR cashout next week, but fgs don't pencil him into your starting back five.
