    He is behind Tedesco and Kangaroo Edwards then.

    And yet he was still 18th man with both healthy, if he plays well enough and the incoming coach decides the game 3 win was enough to make minimal changes to the squad, being 18th man is all it takes to be rubbed out of club fixture.

    Grew up in my local area between Sydney and Newcastle

    Was picked up back when Storm had a feeder side in the area

    EDIT:
    I think he is behind Turbo, Latrell and Papy as well if any of them are fit at origin time

    Yeh, as a fullback he’s way back in the queue, his value at rep level would be as an ‘x factor’ utility, in which case the queue becomes a fair bit shorter

    i think i'll start with cheap hookers in 2024 due to how the hookers finished the 2023 season with grant the highest averaging hooker but overall he's 14th so a high priced half instead of grant with hynes, cleary, dce, sj & moses & walker being the options instead of grant.

    Cheap hookers are rarely keepers

    I have no idea what I will start with in the HOK department (or any really, except maybe Cleary), but I would suggest;

    Cheap [anything] are rarely keepers.

    Depending on what your definition of cheap is, but I think we're lucky if even two sub $400k players become keepers.
    From last year, only J'maine Hopgood at ~$450k springs to mind as a cheapish keeper - and he was arguably midrange.

    You're also doing well (or maybe not well) if you have any starting player become a full season keeper.
    I know last year I had jettisoned my entire starting 21 by the time round 16 started.

    TLDR: At this point in time, all ideas are viable? maybe even the one's with the super-inflated tyres Very Happy

    I hear Jojo Fifita has added lots of muscle weight and is ready to become the next Marzhew... haha - maybe with better time keeping (so no missing team buses)

    Preston was a base price season starting keeper last year, if it hadn't been for his late suspension. So was Carty, and who could have predicted that? People probably jumped off both too early as they were keepers without being top two in their position. But, yeah, there's not usually many of them.

    Will be interesting to see if they mess with Brailey's price. If they don't, then Brailey/Cheese might be the route.

    I kept Preston, and then the bastard was rested in the last round when his suspension was over, because why not.

    Also if someone is a top 2 scorer in their position, then they are a keeper, even if people in other positions are scoring better

    I must admit that Preston had skipped my mind (probably suppressed due to being guilty as charged for jumping off too early).
    But yeah, once he had the start in R2 he averaged a healthy 53.

    Carty was averaging 43 heading into the first bye with questions over his role security (3 recent bench starts), was slightly better for a bit, before going on a 4 week hot streak before averaging 41 over the final 4 rounds (one being a bye). A 48-season average is workable but maybe falls into that borderline-keeper tier, but not really a compelling hold.

    Every year we hope for the breakout keeper (that feels good, but is meaningless because everyone owns).. the Grants, Haas, the DCE's & Reynolds if you go back far enough.

    This year I hope to be a bit more patient with the right borderline keeper (e.g. Hopgood, Preston), and jump off the wrong one early (e.g. Miller).

    From what I can gather round 1 with it being a split round it’s gonna be the same as any other round so you must have Captain and VC locked in by kick off for the Las Vegas 1st game. I’ll be starting with Cleary first guy picked for me. Set and forget Captain.

    It’s gonna be utter chaos. How many Rabbitohs, Rorters, Manly and Broncos players do you pick…… how many cheapies do you pick considering you won’t know team lists for the other 6 games til the following Tuesday arvo…….

    Maybe it’s gonna mean people pick a more mid range kind of squad with less cheapies to start with. Probs gonna be important to leave yourself a reasonable bank as well. Certainly how you start as we know can make or break your season. Like a slow start can have you chasing your tail. No doubt when it comes around I will panic and most likely overthink what I’m doing…..

    But certainly a strong strong C and VC you’ll need.

    Tbh I might go cheap in the backs. Do you risk going Turbo will be the question I did to start season 2023 and he burned me badly…….. for like the 6th time now can I go back for a 7th is the question…….

    I’m not too fussed. Let’s say you have 3-5 guys from Vegas, plus(C)Leary. Even if you get 4-5 wrong of the remaining 16 on TLT, there’s like 48 hours to rejig your squad. Honestly don’t think it’s that chaotic. Unless I’m missing something?

    Only going to be a problem if you lock in too much cash in the Vegas bunch, funded by base price players that aren't named on TLT. The solution (as always) is not to try to overload your squad with too many base price players that don't get named so you don't have to make too many changes

    Mate I’ve already planned my squad with 7 220k rookies that play well in the 1st trial where all the regulars are rested. That is the way

    Matt Moylan is confirmed as leaving the Sharks to head to the Superleague (Man of Steal incoming).

    Jake Clifford is back with the Cowboys. Assumedly the heir to Chad.

    Rumours doing the rounds:
    - STT apparently will not be heading to the Bulldogs.
    - Matt Burton may find himself as a starting centre (go figure).
    - Justin Olam has possibly signed a 3 year deal with the Wests Tigers.
    - Tigers might look to Luai to solve their problems Laughing
