    Arrow played brilliant, hit the ball up hard, tackled and worked hard...can see him getting the full time prop gig

    Bartwright in patches was ok, his defence is a worry, and with 2 minutes to go he does the strangest flick pass, what was going through his brain.

    That looks to be the trade StormTrooper96. I might just do the boring Thompson trade but it makes sense

    and poor old Katoa, even if he recovers will get pneumonia from playing outside that hog and bad ball passer Dugan.

    I didn't see the Roosters game - is Liu a bust, or should I give him another week?

    I ended up going williams over croker as my backup half. Should have played him over carty though. I hate owning players that miss heaps of tackles!

    He is borderline SoylentGreen ( great depressing movie ) because of the Roosters back row of Aubbs, Cordner,

    Matterson and Liu. Cordner started on the bench this round but after the Tigers performance he is bound to start

    next round. Something has to give and Matterson was solid so there is a big question mark over Liu. Tough call mate.

    I’m in the same position with Liu. I think he’s the odd one out as Aubbs played the most minutes. I don’t know his contract situation either - im assuming they are moving him on for Crichton.

    A friend of mine picked their team 2 days before kickoff and jagged 805 and inside the top 900.

    Last time I show them my cookie cutter list..

    Correction, friend is top 450..

    Good point mickspicks I haven't thought of that but I bet Politis has.

    Collectively, the Roosters forwards were terrible on the weekend. They amassed only 5 TBs and 4 offloads between them

    Blake Ferguson was the only Roosters to register a linebreak.

    They will certainly improve on those stats. Whether Liu specifically can improve is another question.

    As an SST owner I'm pretty sure I'll give him another week. In the past 3 years, his lowest score playing 40 minutes or more was 35. So his 27 on the weekend was a record low.
    I expect him to maintain his minutes, so I'm pretty sure they only way is up.

    It feels as though there aren't that many cheap must haves that have emerged after round 1 as usual. Or perhaps i have the few there is already.

    Ones i have:
    Kikau - looked great and probably would have played more mins if not for injury, should be good to go next week
    Havili - well, didnt really play many mins, score saved by try.
    Griffin - boom score but also nabbed a try..plenty tackles though, good buy.
    Rochow - 80 mins, unbelievable. Looks like he'll hold that role. Good buy.
    Katoa - the unlucky injury and has to go.
    Isaako - did well fantasy wise in a woeful team, good signs. Prob not worth grabbig if you dont have him?
    Nicholls - was ok but may already be at his ceiling. May lose starting spot.


    Ones i dont have-
    L croker - i didnt really watch this game, but only 25 isnt terribly exciting.
    Thompson - boom score but bolstered by late try. Should be good for 30s rhough, but is he worth buying if you missed him? Perhaps.
    Kennar - 2 tries for 49. Actually looked strong but what does he score if he isnt scoring tries. Do you buy him after week 1? Im very hesitant.
    Leilua - very few mins
    Hiku - hikWHO? He may not be too bad if he doesnt miss 1000 tackles. May lose his spot to beale soon too

    Anyone else?

    The rankings page only has individual rankings, not league rankings.

    I know stats and match centre are more important, but I want me some league rankings

    whats peoples thoughts on lichaa?

    I'm an SST owner myself, would probably hold for another week but from my team he seems the best option to downgrade to a good option and gain enough money to replace katoa

    What about Tanginoa for Manly. He seemed lively and Lussick is bound to stuff up in some way or form. Borderline I know.

    True, i didnt see alot of him, but 38 in 41 mins is good going. Can he keep it up?
