    Was all set on Ponga but the weather predictions have me slightly spooked.

    Guth for value. I’d be keen on him if I didn’t have Ted Turbo Pap already. Might even still get next week if I can

    Fog more likely season keeper, or Brown adds to Eels for byes. Depends on your team

    I’m getting neither and watching one more week. Brown still has high BE too

    Note: I’m having a bad year so don’t listen to me

    Gutho, weather wins.

    Also our mate Ponga doesn't score as well with Cry baby in the team.

    Back to hold/avoid.

    I was actually going to do that. NRL has weather recorded for each match.. although whenever it was that i looked into doing it, it wasn't exactly reliable.

    eg it might say "cloudy" but really it pissed down rain all game, which isn't much use.

    I feel Sydney rain is a bit like Groundhog day, except instead of a weird rodent deciding the end of winter its James Tedesco who determines if it's wet.

    If Teddy can run confidently and freely with his short studs, then it's not that wet and outside time is ON (and mandatory)

    If he's slipping and sliding, then everyone needs to go back inside for another weekend of rain and misery.

    Don't think I'll be captaining KPP anymore with the doubts. Tossing up May and Mahoney now

    Does he even own a pair of long studs ?

    Bring back screw ins so when you get to the ground and assess the situation you can change them

    When Mahoney gets mentioned in Captaincy options, you know that there are slim pickings.

    Mahoney captain feels like reason I strayed away from Koroisau captain

    Every chance he just throws out a 6+ MT performance against big pack

    Yeah really not wanting to cop a floor score from Mahoney was the reason I was going KPP. But averaging more than SJ and Grant this year he is well ahead of my other shittos (Cotter? Gutho? Papy? Smithies?)

    I'm seriously looking at captaining him. Miss the bad weather games, very understrength Broncos, against a full strength Storm at home, who are rested after the bye.

    The rookie halves were killing Papy last week, he would pass to them in space and they would drop it.

    You're not getting them for one week, you're getting them for what they will score you long term.

    Too much echo chamber chat about the weather and everyone just takes it as gospel and the end of the world, think long term and act accordingly. You got this.

    Agree, weather impacts captaincy choices for the week, not trade ins.

    I'm locked in, first time in a long time I'm doing a edgy Thursday night captain. Playing 16 this week so prepared to go hard or go ... down....
