    Isn't Piakura expected back next week? Should be good value for his price still and not taking up loads of cap on the pine. What would be the point of trading him out now?

    He's still not training I heard so how back next week for sure?

    That is such a huge signing.
    Made even more impressive by absolutely no leakage to the media from anyone involved...

    Quite a different style prop to AFB, but doesn't seem in any way like a downgrade in quality (which probably all of us thought would have to happen)
    Well done Warriors!

    Adding 2 Golden Boot winners and a Dally M winner in 3 consecutive seasons, incredible recruiting.

    FWIW

    SJ didn't train today, Egan on a "Modified Program" - Both expected to play though

    Maybe I'll just hold Cook this week. Can use him to loop a couple shittos.

    Who knows what JD is thinking could be back to 80min hooker next week.

    Can trade Levi instead of Cook and still afford my trades if I get Iro.

    Or can trade Hutch instead of Cook and still afford my trades if I get Chester.

    Think I'm leaning Iro. BHU and Rudolf back and he still has the spot, seems good enough at this point.

    Iro with a -2 BE. Looks like he may hold that centre position moving forward. Pretty tempted to bite the bullet and may just do a straight swap with Talagi (which pains me as I only brought him in the other week).

    Same boat, and it was very disappointing. Hoping Hynes steps up this week

    Worth doing Chan->Iro? Don't need the positional cover, just chasing cash TU/TD

    I'm going to get Iro in this week for that reason, but for Burbo instead. Talagi can sit in EMG for another week in the hope he makes his way back in to the starting side. If he doesn't by next week, maybe he gets traded then

    I've got that option as well. Probably makes more sense. If Talagi is on the bench you'd think it's a sign BA is looking to bring him in to the 13. Russell may be the one on notice.

    Appreciate that mate Clap

    If a rookie gun half in every fantasy team isn't blockbuster worthy, I dunno what is.

    Which is stranger

    Ignoring round 8, or including Piakura with Haas and Reynolds as a key "trio"

    I'm holding him because I have other fires to put out this week but also because, like you say, he could be back next week. My plan is to trade Cook to Haas if Cook isn't back next week. I just need to make sure I keep the extra aside to afford the trade.

    Iro at worst makes some cash short term. If he stays in the team he ends up a $600k CTR that scores well. Upside is too good to ignore.

    Will be interesting to see which Cook we see playing when he returns - beach sprint champ, or pass the ball to the halves guy.

    Traded Piakura. Will get him again if he can string a few games together without being injured, stuck in the ctrs or concussed.
