    Smith
    Lodge, Latu

    Croft, Moses

    Teddy, Ponga, Dufty

    Looking similar to me. Lots of question marks in the 2rf and ctrs.
    The only difference is I have Taupau (Latu 14-17) and no Dufty....considering Teddy, Ponga, 228k. Oh, and Nikorima over Moses

I'd rather play a 228k & use the extra cash elsewhere. In fact there's no certainty that Taka will even crack the starting 13 in round 1. Last year Moeroa would start on the edge & then move to the middle after about 20 minutes & Edwards would come on.

    Yep, I called him as a trap 10 days ago. Cash to be made for sure, just not as much as people expect.

    There is one CTR which I haven't seen many people pick (I have) I'm expecting him to come back into form this year. Should be good for 45 at least per game, 100 isn't out of the question on rare weeks either....

    This is huge news for Rugby League imo - NZ vs POMs in Denver, over the Origin weekend this year. Game will be played at 10am NZ time (so i guess around 8am AU?) on the day of origin game two.

    Hopefully clubs are willing to release their players, that could certainly be an issue...

    I will be happy to chuck in a cheapie in WFB, perhaps Katoa if it means a slightly better class of player in the centres

    Leilua? I don't think any CTR averaged 45 last year. I think he could be someone who bounces back. Crazy to see him priced below the likes of Fuimaono (who I did have in my team for a while last year)....

    Still laugh to myself that Lewis Brown is amongst the top 10 most selected centres.

    BJ priced too low imo. Got to take risks and I'm prepared to do it on him.

    I forgot about Leilua.

    Is a centre pairing of Leilua/Hayne a bad idea?

    I like the Leilua pick, ballsy. It does, in a way, go against my "bold predictions" for the raiders season.. haha. He certainly does look trim.

    Welcome brother. I think a forward dominated team like yours can work but it depends on them scoring enough extra points to prop up the scores of Thompson, Havili & Croker. If you want a more balanced team I would consider downgrading both James & Taumalolo.

    FWIW, I'm expecting R. James to be quite solid this year. Should be 55 average, if he plays 70-80 that is. I'm trying to put him in my team, along with 50 other players.

    Welcome.
