Looks like it was a tough week for everyone, so I was absolutely stoked to see a green arrow on the rankings for me after a solid 970 points.
From what I've been able to gather, looks like everyone is panicking on Manu, Miller and Hosking. I own all three and have burned through my trades so they'll all be holds for me. Can trade Hosking to Tohu next week. No other raging fires means I likely miss out on HEdwards and Burbo, and probably too late (and sideways) for me to trade in Luki. Are there any other obvious buys after last round and TLT?
Leaves me with the following (bold play Round 13):
Haas, Horse, Sele
Miller, Drinkwater, Bula
I.Katoa, Difita, Cheese, Oloapu
Manu, Ford, SJ, Billy Smith
I'm fairly confident that holding on Trades for the week is the right move but please feel free to point out anything glaringly obvious. I'm sore, tired and have had next to no preparation for this round.
Love you all
N.B. If any Kiwis every get the chance to go fishing at the Three Kings Islands north of NZ, do it! Absolutely incredible fishing and completely untouched. Very fortunate the weather held out to finally let us get out there.
I would look at selling Hosking for H Edwards (looks the goods and Ciraldo's said he's playing the rookies for performance reasons, so he's probably safe). You would still have 11/13 for round 13 which is fine. Then use the money you've banked to trade Ikat or Sele to a R14 gun (Ipap, Nikora, D Edwards etc.)
H Edwards also has the benefit of playing both R16 and R19, which likely will be harder bye rounds than R13.
