    Assumptions around starting. Obviously its TLT dependent

    If curran starts id probably just flick luki

    Everyone assumed he would be big minute starting lock. In trials all the lock minutes went to Salmon and Mann, he played prop off the bench.

    If it looks like he gets good minutes, I will downgrade someone to fit him in.

    Could punt Cotter or Luki for Curran. Next week's problem though.

    Ended up going off Cheese. Figure Wong is 100k cheaper and hopefully get the same value or better if he can replicate that limited sample. Sitili feels the safer pick being more experienced and derailed by injury, but there's a world where both could be good and I wanna live there.

    Gus did say Curran had the flu which is why he played little minutes. Kind of annoying not knowing his role. thought he was a lock.

    I've been toying with this idea of limiting myself to 1 trade a week (at least until the major bye rounds)
    I'm a hopeless trade junkie and think that saving trades early will help me push for a better finish to the season

    I have played this game long enough to know, as much as I wish I could do that, I will be max trading the first 5 rounds at least.

    I'll be around to slap you in the face with a large trout if you like? No 2nd trade unless absolutely necessary as deemed by a committee that I will form when issues arise.

    I like to say a trade can be worth 50-100 points towards the end of season.. last season it could've been worth a lot more for some.

    Hmm y'all are tempting me to ditch Tatola for Wong and shifting Tupouniua to the front row, Tatola does seem so boring...

    This is exact the move I have just made myself on current draft. Free's up that little bit of needed $$$$

    I don't see how anyone else benefits from that? I prefer the large trout scenario..

    No need to limit the trades if there's good trades to be made, but I'll be sure to remind you if it's really necessary Suspect

    Back for another year, will never ever finish higher than I did last year so now I’ll spend most of my time reminiscing about the glory days. Threw a team together after going through MS and Mattnzs trackers 🤣

    Grant
    Hoppy, Tupouniua, Flegler
    Wong, Luki
    Cleary (c), Fogarty
    Garrick, Burbo
    Papy, Turbo, Weekes

    Lussick, Hutchinson, Piakura, Salmon
    Mikaele, Strange, Hughes, Cotric

    Surely 4 Raiders is grounds for expulsion from all leagues?

    I'm taking a risky approach this year and trying to go purely for guns and base price cashies.

    Grant
    Haas, Murray, Hughes
    Aitken, Salmon
    Cleary, Hynes
    Burbo, Cotric
    Pap, Turbo, RTS

    INT / Bench

    Weeks, Willison, Hutchison, Strange
    Shiller, Gagai, Stewart, Mikaele


    Seems an easier approach than trying to decide between the multitude of mid rangers out there.

    Will likely regret my decision come round 2.

    Mikaele needs 30 minutes to be worth it. How do we see the rotation with Hess out?

    Based loosely on last season:

    McLean 40
    Robson 80
    Lolo 50
    Nanai 80
    Luki 65
    Cotter 60

    Neame 40
    Granville 30
    McIntyre 15

    Leaves Mikaele with 20, unless he grabs some minutes from Neame/Granville.

    If Luki is playing 80, McIntyre steals some minutes too and McIntyre could hop into the middle rotation too.

    Boom! Haas and Hoppo!

    Robbo
    Haas Hoppo Sitili
    Wongy Pia
    Chin Hutch
    Penis Kris
    Paps RTS Bradley

    Lussick Luki Salmon Flanno

    Burbo Cotric Hughes Strange

    Don't like running Flanno and bench is light as fuck but Haas and Hoppo looks amazing.
