    A lot of action happening at the back this year

    Rapana out for some time and Chevy in.
    CNK missed the start of the season and Tuaupiki also got injured
    Hammer out and Fuller playing
    Now Ponga out

    Was going to ask if the Knights had any cap to sign a decent fullback waiting in the wings but it seems half of them are already playing first grade. Ponga's injury probably just too short to warrant it anyway.

    Ranging from 3-4 months to season ending isn’t really short term

    Got to wonder if Tuaupiki is looking elsewhere...

    RTS won't be around much longer and I'm not sure if many clubs would be interested to be honest. Warriors will keep him and it won't cost them much.

    Pre- TLT trades

    Fogarty ---> Cleary/Hynes
    BSmith ---> Grant
    Lussick ---> JBrailey

    Big upgrades that need to be made but starting to get low on trades already.

    I normally love a late season charge but not sure I'll have the trades for it this year unless I suffer through the byes.

    560k for someone averaging 40 before he goes and scores 2 tries?

    Feels a bit chasy

    Keep in mind that his second game starting at lock he had a sin bin

    Seems most of them are waiting in the centres these days. RTS, Manu, Meaney, Crichton, Garrick, Cobbo, Koula.


    Sorry.

    That's interesting - I've been thinking about Turbo out in the next few weeks. Certainly before Origin.

    Seems to be playing within himself a lot, and unlikely to get the ceiling scores.

    I'm not in a rush, but when counting the rounds to Origin camp he looks like a sell option.

    Looks like a good plathway to Haas in future.

    Kade Dykes easily the best one not playing first grade IMO

    There is a reason Sharks were willing to let Miller go when Knights came knocking the first time

    Getting to the time of year when the trades ins probably have to stay for the season. First two are easily keepers and Brailey could hang around as 17/18th man

    David Armstrong looked like a world-beater the week before last. Not sure anyone played good this week though, they got absolutely towelled up by the dogs.

    absolutely luxury trade to sell him, and i've used way too many trades so far to entertain it.

    if the broncos continue to run sailor and smoothy on the bench then it looks very good for carrigan. i'm convinced he can be an 80 min week in week out player now.

    but fletcher hetho and willison are all going pretty well at the moment, so i'm guessing sailor is told 'sorry mate there's just no room at the moment, heres the 18th man jersey'.

    Had a quick look today and I reckon he might actually be in my team for the long haul. Other than the round 1 Vegas score everything else has been A1.

    It's not like there are many other mids (Yeo and Haas excepted obviously) who are as consistent. Maybe Tohu and I'm thinking about getting him in for Fog this week.

    Similar to how CNK was the HIGHEST AVERAGING FULLBACK!! after playing two (2) games, i reckon you could take about the same from Plath's early games if you're trading him in. he's got the 13 jersey and could be in for 55-60 mins from here on, and he loves getting involved.

    The 2022 cotter.

    not sure if i'll actually get him though.. trades trades trades
