    Hooker is going to be a shit show again next year. Might as well go cheap and spend the cash elsewhere.

    Been offline most of the weekend, managed to catch the Warriors game last night and that was it.

    I seem to be having a good round - 750 + Grant, Horsburgh, Ponga and Gagai

    Any news that I should be aware of? Saw JMK out for the season. Look forward to seeing if he continues into even better form next year. He was a big part of the Dolphins early season results.

    So I need Horse to score over 61 to win my H2H. Will be touch and go. Thought I was done since I had Wayde Egan but luckily he was playing VTW.

    I am toast anyway after this week with no trades left and have Moses and Egan with only Sandon, Luke, Colquhoun and Talau in my emgs, but it will be nice to at least make the final 4. In hindsight I should have just kept Robson and played Luke Laughing

    I have in my notes: start with Grant and worry about Origin later

    You’ll be playing roulette and whinging about low scores going cheap

    Nah, I picked a experienced starting hooker with a good scoring history returning from injury who was cheap at the start of the season and that worked out really well for me. Sad

    Maybe the correct answer is to trade in mahoney in rnd 3 after 2 x 65's, only for him to revert to 30s

    If you mean Hodgson then I started with him too but jumped off quick haha

    History shows that starting with Grant Cook or Robson this year would’ve saved you a headache until at least R13, same with previous years

    In a similar vein I have a note to start with 1 40ish average CTR, or just pick the most obvious with upside. Same logic to avoid roulette starting with cows who will likely misfire

    Tempting

    It was probably only lack of trades that stopped me from going a third time, so next year when I'm flush with trades, you can lock that trap in for me

    Huge difference maker for the few people with trades (I’m not looking like one of them). That are your R27 top buy.

    Why is Cheese getting 35mins a game? I’m baffled what a joke.

    Lemu and Penis have stuffed me I’m 13/696 C so about 15 off par for the top 1k not great.

    Haas bye next week, Lemu HIA, Kris and Colouqhun can’t really play them.

    Can just play Cheese and take the hit but would be playing Cheese, Edwards and Penis not ideal. Maybe take the hit and hold my last trade?

    Other option is sell Lemu to Suaali thoughts? Then wouldn’t have to play Cheese
