    Yep, I would be concerned about Niu, with Averillo waiting for an opportunity. Also amazed that Wallace was 18th man, had a great season last year and was great in the trials.

    If it actually came out that there were teams that were limiting the minutes of good prospects to keep their contract value down, I'd imagine those teams would find it a lot harder to get good prospects to sign in the first place, and they'd lose them to teams willing to give them the minutes. It'd be a braindead move to not play your players the minutes they deserve for a very small potential cap benefit.

    The Bludger's post Rd.1 wrap-up:

    Hooker: JMK > 37 Twisted Evil but the entire Phins team looked old, slow and lost out there today. He can have a week off and see if Bennett can work some of that "Master coach" magic on him.
    Middles > Haas cheer regular as sunrise. Leniu > jocolor nuff said. On the block. Goodbye champ. You can become T. May once lockout lifts.
    Toups > unsure of what to do. Barring a serious injury he'll stick around until ye old Bludger gets a look at Robbo's bench rotations.
    Halves: The Chin. Lowest score of the year out of the way. Leaving the C on him.
    SOS > see JMK. Don't know if he just doesn't have it, or if the team was putrid. Was a toss-up between him & Fog. Wish I'd held the Green-man. Didn't see that many kms coming. If teams work this out and pressure him more the Raiders are up the creek. (He's playing behind a scary pack though)
    Centres: Burbo > legend. Basketball we'll all ride this train until it crashes. Kiraz > the Dogs were woeful. Kiraz can have another go. (Wish I'd picked Laybutt though)
    WFB: Teddy > welcome back champ. Taupiki > best fluke selection yet. Pappy > everyone has him. He'll get better.

    Reserves: Salmon > got shifted & shafted to the centres. Will have another week to make up for it.
    Lussick > gave the service & score I was hoping for. Well done son.
    Wong: Not wong, but right. (Sorry - bad pun) afro
    Shoes > everyone has him. Slow burn in a light Dogs pack.
    Chan > I think someone said he had the best seat at the game to watch ... that pretty much says it all. Def on the blocks, just don't know who to pick up for him. Perhaps one of the Tigers young halves.
    Hutcho > can't be disappointed with 34 in base stats in a vomit inducing team performance.
    Starnge > young, will get better. Fog is more dominant than a dominatrix in that team. NPRville for you.
    Kini > ummm nah. NPRs for you son until I can trade you out.

    Honestly surprised 9600 rank after all the carnage and left 350k itb for next round to pivot easier guess at this stage

    Tmay and fog are probably 2 to bring in
    For piakura and someone else

    Something about my brain, I can’t even contemplate moves until I see break evens and prices. I might just be slow.

    Commentators on ABC radio (national broadcaster so less histrionic analysis ) were flagging a few areas of concern, namely centre, halves and impact in the middle. It wasn’t Farnsworth’s edge they were saying might need a change either.

    They really emphasised the lack of creativity at the end of sets

    McIntyre came back on for Mclean at the 67th minute for a second stint, presumably only because it was a blowout. I know Payten is cooked but would be pretty odd to use two interchanges on McIntyre each week.

    If that didn't happen McIntyre is down to 34mins. And that's not even taking into account the whole Lolo 20mins situation.

    When it's a blowout game like that I don't think there's too many conclusions you can solidly draw re minutes.

    Bennett loves his old kents. Nicholls played his 150th today.

    752 points including the big fat 0 from piakura.
    Happy with that for my first season.
    Not sure if I should or even need to make trades - better to try and use some now to pick up some early risers? Or save em for later in the season?

    Flat score of 700. No idea on trades, don't care until Tuesday. Got 154K in the bank for some 'upgrades' or to swap any coin goats that may pop up. If there are any.

    Really depends on squad make up, 752 points in itself is really good, let alone doing that with 16 players essentially? Spending trades now to get the cash cows now is generally the way to play, just have to find that right balance between banking a weekly trade, and going all out


    TLDR: Making trades now is good as you don't know what the end of the season will hold.

    The first team that has no players that weren't named in their starting side this week, is ranked 32nd with 880 points. They are probably the benchmark for the actual top ranked side that has any chance of staying up there. They still had some issues:
    Muhleisen 3
    Chan 18
    Kini 18
    Faamausili 15
    Also Gagai with poor job security

    Not too far ahead of many of us and very catchable. They just missed the carnage of Sitili, Piakura and had a few picks that went well this weekend, like Holmes (he looked really good, was running very strongly), Latrell, Kennar, Captained Haas. Otherwise just had guys that scored reasonably. Actually had a 21, 15 and 18 in their playing 17.

    Generally if I'm not sure that anyone needs trading, I'll bank them. Plenty of obvious ones will come up and saving trades now will help go harder at the byes, or not having to carry red dots into the final round(s). Terrell May is the one I want the most, but all the shine could be knocked off him with a 35-40 next round.
