    What do you do if Sitili plays 80 and scores mid 40s? Maybe run through Burbo for some busts?

    Or is he just the most expendable

    Mate how many mins do you think for Smithies?

    The interesting scenario for me is if they play Horse on the EDG again until Whitehead is back, would be great for Smithies to retain his current big minute role.

    Are you anticipating Young or Hosking getting injured too?

    Yeah I think Morg keeps the 13, Hors played EDG last year for a few games but think that was more out of necessity. Shouldn't happen whilst Hosking and Young are available.

    Hosking is out when Whitehead is back anyway, might as well give the Horse a good gallop for 80 minutes.

    I have enough to turn him into May which is tempting but could easily backfire.

    Holding, but I also only have 20k so no one I'd like to flick him to anyway. Seyfarth firmly on minutes watch this week though.

    Going to have to sacrifice a fullback to the gods this week

    Need to bulk out my mid, took the piss with a few too many fullbacks and last minute squeezed in hynes and it bit me in the ass.
    Cheapies going low and the guns not firing and the tunnel looks bleak.
    Anyways I enjoy a challenge from 73k overall and for the first time this year actually excited about fantasy again.

    While I don't have huge faith in Paps/Rapana I need Pongas cash to combine with Cotric to be able to do anything with it beyond trading sideways

    Could run it back with no trades but another red dot or 2 and it would be last drinks without Duncan
    So going to take the lazy mid approace and get a couple this week.
    2 scorers for the price of one

    Out - Ponga+Cotric
    In - Smithies+Duncan and 55k bank

    Brookzy wrote:People seem to think Duncan will be playing on the edge. I’m fairly confident he will be starting lock come game time with Murray on the edge. He will most likely rotate with havili in the lock role. Might get 50 odd minutes.

    Training today they were spotted training in the above positions too.

    Make of it what you wish Smile
    I was at work but I’ve just got home I am just eating dinner and spat out out in laughter. I rarely get the Souths stuff wrong. The guy with the training update is a guy I’ve spoke with at games several times too he nails it.

    So answer me this if JD said pre season that we could push Murray out to an edge if needed at times and play Tallis through the middle why are we shocked about it?….. it’s JD too we are talking about often his team selections make no sense. Duncan has never played edge before did not spend a minute there in pre season why will that change now? Murray edge has been floated around too as a way to ease his workload just a bit too given he’s so bashed up already his shoulders are fucked from being battered in the middle and he’s only 25 years old. Murray is also bloody great on the edge and Tallis is a gun.

    Secondly coaches what they name is not always how they run out sometimes they play mind games. Souths often last year didn’t run out how they were named on the Tuesday.

    Thirdly if Murray was training right edge the whole session today 2 days out from the game what does that tell you and the fact Duncan and Havili were in the middle alternating?

    MattNZ is right too on what he said at 45-50mins at lock Duncan is a wait a week and watch thing. I expect Murray and Keaon to play 80mins and there is 4 middles on the bench. I can’t see Duncan getting 55-60mins intially no way it’s a long year too.



    Anyway people don’t fume when Duncan is not playing big mins on the edge come Thursday and don’t be angry if Havili comes on for him around 24mins into the game.



    Aside from this I’m seeing a lot of panic. People overreacting and rage trading and forgetting it’s a marathon and not a sprint. You know what I think I might just hold both trades this week.

    he once scored over 100 fantasy points in a trial game

    At least, we think it was him - he was listed as "Canberra no 10" or something similar on the team sheet

    Oh and aside for that I do not see more than 45mins for Tatola at most probs more low 40’s mins if I had him I think I would trade him as we have a 4 forward bench with all middles.

    Didn't Brookzy who you quoted say the same thing you just did?

    Also, I loled at the bolded part.
