    Did Bellyache say something about Chan being more of a middle, Bradley a chance of getting named on the edge or Blore straight in?

    Come on Fantasy gods give us a half decent cheapie on TLT.

    It's 1 game. McIntyre is no superstar. Who knows why that happened, but I'd wait for a trend first. Any trend.

    The question with the weird Cowboys bench that had 1 prop on it was always who benefits from this. It clearly wasn't Cotter or Lolo. At his price point, McIntyre is a bargain buy. Could have easily had a try today too.

    He is much more awkward to buy the following week, if he is suddenly $380k.

    I cant think of any locks who come on at 17 minutes and don't get a decent run.

    You'd assume Taumalolo will normally play more than 20 mins. You'd want to see a couple more games before you could comfortably trade in Mcintyre.
    Someone like Seyfarth could be a better pick

    Can see Lolo becoming somewhat of a burden.with 4 yrs remaining on his contract.

    Being overtaken by younger players doing more work on half his pay.

    He did say that, but it’s anyone’s guess how it plays out from here.
    I’d say NAS coming back in is more of a concern that Blore at this point.

    I can’t stand by and cop this Hutcho at starting half it’ll give me a brain aneurysm! Dogs were terrible he could be dropped by round 5…… think I need to say alright Cookie ya fucked up ya fucking fucked up should’ve got Fog from the start Cotter I don’t think will avg 50 I think I might go…

    Cotter to Fog.

    Only leaves me Sitili Haas Cheese Hughes as mids but if Seyfarth looks good could get him round 3 and piss someone else off.

    I will be amazed if he stays at Cowboys. Expect that rival coaches will start having some informal discussions with him on where he is at and if he wants a bigger role elsewhere. Probably get him for $700k, with Cowboys paying the rest.

    Looking likely that McLean could be low minute prop this season too. Came off at 17 minutes, for 33 total. Definitely at the back end of his career at 32.

    Look at potty mouth Rabbits21 here.

    What suggests Seyfarth is going to be good. His good scores are when he plays big minutes on an edge and they have Bateman and iPap?

    Scores around 0.9 PPM in the MID off the bench.

    Was scoring at that rate in the trials, 35 in 40 minutes as starting lock.

    Blore has gone and was getting 38 minutes off the bench last season.

    Its a punt, but expecting at worst he gets increased minutes off the bench, and ideally 45-50 minutes as starting lock for 40-45 points.

    Definitely has shown he has a great work rate, any time he was given a starting EDG role and easily played the 80 there, while averaging 43 tackles.

    Neame could still be the biggest bench middle mins wise.

    Sometimes clubs do this kind of thing mate I know from my mate who works for NRL not specifically on Terrell but just in general terms. Or they limit how many games they play or mins so the price tag doesn’t sky rocket. Lots goes on behind closed doors.

    You've got it mixed rabbit. It's to introduce them to NRL. Particularly young forwards. They slowly bring them in with "x amount" of games. It's to do with loading and stress. The idea is that when they're 22 they're ready to take on a FT top 17 position.

    Fair one, probably a wait and see for me. It’s very much a wasteland 500k and below. 

    Jealous or your bank I’ve got 3k spare  lol!

    Bennett would have sent him to Q Cup long ago for a stint.

    Yep, trying to rebalance my side to that slightly higher price point, and he is part of that strategy.
