    Ilias season

    Is this nobody partnering Walker a buy? Or do we just assume Wighton or Latrell is playing halves at some stage?

    Walker never seems to step up when there is an opportunity. I started with him the season that he had Ilias as his rookie halfback, he played really shit instead of stepping up.

    Absolute steal if anyone got him near R1

    It's not an inspiring choice and I may still go the Matto route for the lols but I do need someone I can play over (but probably in addition to Very Happy) Cheese/Piakura/Salmon who get minutes every week and plods along to a 40. imagine that, a lovely 40 sitting on your bench......

    Interesting choices to replace Pappy this week, compounded by the fact I'm already starting Atkinson. Don't love the look of Armstrong, he will be a better winger. I do like the chat about Young and May as options. Simonson or Russel could be worth a shout too. There is always AJ (and RTS to a lesser extent) but they miss 13. Tago will be bleeding cash too but means you have to wait. Kiraz seems the best with byes, but I'm not coughing up 600 for him. Teddy probably does outscore May in less games, but if May can jag a try or two it'll be alright. Fa'alogo looked decent last week but geez he seems small and doesn't play 13.

    ALL that said, might just do Papy>May/Young and flip flop on a second Strange/Salmon>Fa'alogo trade to get Atkinson out of the starting lineup. Although Strange/Salmon>Weekes next week (provided he's named) is a goer.

    BCT05 wrote:Unsure on Papy replacement between Fa'a, Kiraz, TayMay or Drinkwater.

    Fa'a would be nice for cash plus points if he can average 40 but also requires a trade back out in ~6 weeks(?) (Initial talk was 6-8wks from nrlphysio but storm have said 4-6 I think? Get the feeling it's certainly going to be longer than 4).

    Kiraz and May could hopefully hang around in CTR all the way if needed. Particularly like Kiraz playing both 13+16.

    Might be worth paying up for Drinky but only plays one of the major byes which becomes less ideal when paying 700k, and limits my second trade to Fainu instead of Matto.

    I started with Kiraz and May this season.

    Kiraz has a knee injury, went for scans this week.
    Panthers are right side dominant, except for the crash ball play to the left EDG, Luai cutting back inside, or passing the cut out ball to Too on the wing. May gets no quality ball in attack.
    If Pap is back R14-15 as reported, Faalogo only gets 4-5 games at fullback and doesn't play R13.
    Drinkwater looks to be the solid, but expensive keeper play.

    At my rank I need to take a punt on somebody. If he can score anything like he has historically then happy days.

    That's my logic LB.
    My rank has tanked (20000+) so any risk is worth it in the long run.
    I took the early punt on Angus (Robbo's notoriously fickle forward rotations and all) and it paid dividends.
    If Matto gets a half decent run over the Origin rounds he should make coin and provide much needed points.

    N.B. there may be other issues at play we (the fans) know nothing about that's holding him back.

    If I did go the Matto route I would not be as confident as some of the opinions expressed on the last few pages....It would definitely be based more on hope than any solid views on his potential minutes going forward.

    Matto has had more false dawns than Armageddon. Also Brad Arthur....

    Too late to get Fuller? HTF due back rd 11 right? Though HTF would likely make the origin side?

    BA is too erratic. I want to see the role and see him named there next week. Carty has been good, what's suddenly changed. Perhaps BA has just realised Matto is a superior football player but talk about shuffling the deck chairs.

    I actually think Carty is a superior football player on the edge (don't get me wrong Matto is also a good football player and is a bigger body). Carty adds a bit of extra creativity, which the eels sorely need.

    Matto is probably better in the middle but again Hopgood is busier.

    BCT05 wrote:Would like Matterson a lot more if he didn't get such poor minutes off the bench so far this year. Previous couple years his scoring off the bench was still very good so would be nice to have that to fall back to if Carty gets his spot back. If he keeps the starting edge spot he's a must have but we all know BA shenanigans and hard to trust him staying there. Will probably take the punt over Fainu.

    I'm going all MattNZ and grabbing him then creating a narrative to suit my agenda. Fringe origin level talent is way too good to be on the bench over journeyman Cartwright. Will play 80 at lock while Hopgood is at origin while simultaneously coming off the bench to cover Paulo with another 50 at prop

    Should average atleast 90 points over this period

    That again begs my question, what's Carty done then. BA just lost the plot maybe? If anything Lane should be benched over Carty.

    Just think Carty is coming back from a rib cartilage injury and they are easing him back in. Wouldn't be shocked if there was a game day switch.

    I'm still contemplating picking up Matto though Very Happy

    I don't think it's anything Carty, or any specific Parra player has done per se.
    It's pretty clear that BA is under the pump. This team went close to a premiership not so long ago, they have under performed and it's getting hot in the kitchen. BA is shifting chairs on the Titanic because he needs to be seen to be doing something.
    The main problem is their attack is built around Moses. Moses > Dylbags and then either an Edge (Lane / Carty) or out to the wing (Sivo). The only other play is Gutho sliding into the backline play for an extra man o/lap.
    Moses & Gutho injured = Eels attack stalls.
    This means more loses than wins and boom, coach starts to freak out and switch players around.

    Yep, if looking to change things up, Lane looks to be the way to do it. Carty started the season on fire.

    I just want to take a moment away from complaining to do a public appreciation post for Kayal Iro. Since coming into (most of) our sides, he's not scored a try, and yet averaged 43. The cash cow we all craved AND filled a notoriously challenging centre spot.

    Tempting but I'll probably resist heading into the bye period. Can see more restings through the series. Will be watching from behind the couch though.

    I had him in last week so I guess it's still an option but will more than likely hold off.

    a very select few will be happy with a poor score from Kayal
