    Yeah, dumped Griffin last week but was thinking Murray to Surgess for 60k a go if Murray 3+ weeks. However if Fifita ACL then Fifi to Smith/AMac takes precedence. Could always do both and ditch planned Lodge to Mbye trade. Will have close look at Mbye tomorrow.

    If Fifita is out long term I'll be getting Smith.

    Although I can't imagine Fifita not in my final 17 so I'd really prefer to hold him.

    If it is a bad knee injury I think I'm going to get a gun half in, already holding Murray can't hold that much money back

    I would like to get Johnson and Aitken but wouldn’t have any cover in the FR or 2NDRF if I don’t get Fisher Harris.
    Unless I put Gosiewski there hahaha

    Surgess has been playing prop all year so should really get DPP when they hand them out (after this round?), but Fiona so who knows.

    I've got a Lodge -> Smith traded planned for next week, so if Fifita is under 4 weeks I'm gonna hold him. Burning through trades too fast to be sideways trading guns. Sad

    I think the tragedy of his suspension was that he only made three games starting FRF since he was named lock in round 1.
    Which means he will need to wait until after round 12. Was set to get the DPP easily too Sad

    Jesus... Brown, Murray, Kodi and now Fifita. As if these limited bench spots weren't bad enough already.

    Knights just giving away points, but Munster and NAS managed to avoid them. Looking forward to Croker outscoring Munster in my EME just to rub more salt in the wound.

    Rds 10 and 11 for my H2H finals can't come quick enough. Blessing in disguise that FailHub's broken ass league creation kept overriding us to play only once cheer

    Tagatese intetests me coming off the bench.  He's got a lot to play for.

    Thoughts?

    I think because Su'a was a pretty decent cow in limited games over the origin period a couple of years ago, so has some pedigree at least.

    Su'a starting over Taga and playing 72 last week means he should get the bulk of the minutes and opportunities.

    Taga with an average of 21 mins in 12 games last year at Sharks. Most he played was 30 and he's getting on a bit..

    He played 40 mins once in 2016, averaging 28 mins across 20 games.

    PPM is pretty good at .82 and .81, but I think he'd need consistently good minutes, like 40 odd to average over 30 and make ~200k.

    Don't see him getting as many as 30 mins tbh, but could expect a 24.6 average and $369k price tag for a bit over 100k profit if that happened.

    Su'a's (the fuck..?) 4 game sample from 2016:

    51 in 80
    31 in 80
    28 in 57
    45 in 68

    2017:

    36 in 80
    20 in 27
    24 in 33
    5 in 9

    Can use my watertight theory to combine those last 3 into 1.. 49 in 69 looks much better Very Happy

    Enough spamming for now. Only have to put up with me for another ~5 weeks anyway.

    Since I cashed out to Gosie last week and presumably you've written him off entirely Pain, if you're looking at Taga..

    How about a bet that Gosie has a higher 5 game average than Taga starting this weekend?

    Actually, I think you also cashed out to Gosie already... nevermind then, as you were.

    Has there been anything on Line Scout's Q+A's bout who will get DPP after this week?

    I would have thought changing it to every 6 rounds was so that they could make DPP changes whenever they made sense rather than only waiting for the player to be named 4 times. Surgess would be a prime candidate for DPP change I would have thought
