    Yeah Wilson would be a bit unlucky to miss out. Not sure on Tracey's best position, but I reckon he'd be a good 14, or at least better than Taaffe at FB.

    Something like:

    1. Tracey
    2. Kiraz
    3. Crichton
    4. Xerri
    5. JAC

    14. Wilson, or Tracey with Kiraz/Crichton FB and Wilson starting.

    Just based on where everyone seems to play their best to my eye.

    Seemed unusual they weren't trialling anyone other than Taaffe at fullback. Maybe its because the actual guy is Tracey. I still haven't seen any reports on any injuries that he has been carrying.

    if i was a dog's fan I'd rather have Tracey than Taaffe in my team. Team selections don't always reflect fan wishes though

    Current squad

    Grant
    Haas Sitili SHughes
    Piakura Luki
    Cleary Hutch
    Burbo Cobbo
    Pap RTS Ponga

    Cheese Wong Arthars Salmon
    Schiller Weekes Strange Bradley 56k itb

    Do I have too many Vegas players? I'm also a little worried about running 4 broncos - should I downgrade Haas to a Hopgood just for the team variety?

    Appreciate the advice.

    Yeah surely it’s Tracey when fit. You can tell the Bulldogs were beguiled by Taaffe’s performance against them last year. Even the mediocre players have a blinder in them.

    On this. Brisbane, Roosters and Manly have no byes before origin.

    If you are overloading on any teams, they are some of the better ones

    I don't know exactly how well Fog will do, but I do know this. He'll score much better than Drew Hutchison
    Sure, but FOG is far more expensive and Hutch is probably a 17/18 at best.

    On the Raiders 5/8 worth noting that by R7, they may have an entirely new half in Ethan Sanders. Probably makes no difference to picking up Weekes/Strange but something to look out for

    Imagine being the Raiders
    You had Brad Schneider
    You let him go to Super League
    You end up letting him go
    You lose Wighton
    Schneider comes back to Aus as back up Pamfa

    Did Schneider become a world beater or something? scratch

    I thought he was more Luke Brooks than Mitch Moses.

    I rate him. Decent kicking game etc. Still a bit raw. 2025 he'll probably kill it for pamfa.

    Sitili vs Wongy.


    Think ill just pick both and turf whoever doesnt work out.


    Im feeling like Wongy is the better pick. Hes a beast. He played 50 ish mins per game when starting last year, but its a new year. Things change. Hes on the rise.


    Sitili is a bit of a dud scorer without tries and vegas might not have enough room for edge forwards to stroll over. One game does not make a season though.


    I think its clear that robbo realises things need to be a little different this year.

    where is this Sitii being a dud scorer without tries think coming from

    1/ Sitili knows how to find the try line regularly - so why worry
    2/ He scores mid 40s without tries and is priced close to 30 - again what is the issue

    Sanders looked way off first grade in his trial for Parra imo.

    Would quite like Murray but I'm not getting rid of Haas. Might just have to run them both, it's definitely doable without tearing things apart too much.

    I can see Curran being named in the starting side in R1 and everyone having to totally re-organise their teams to fit him in, or he comes off the bench and plays 60 minutes straight in R1. Going to be an awkward price to fit in.

    Late to the party but sitting on both at this point will adjust either on game day or whenever it becomes apparent there is a winner.

    Why is everyone off Curran anyway? I have not seen him in any teams and i thought he was a must get early on?

    I've got a ~500k option (currently Smithies) that is not settled yet. Open to Curran, Smithies or Lolo depending on how TLT looks.
