    It's a roll of the dice. I only went Kikau to Fifi cause I like watching JFH play.

    I like your trades this week Welshy, Doueihi next week gives you 3 players for round 13 that potentially could be handy going forward.

    Given the size of squads it only takes a couple to go down with a short term injury along with say a couple red dots and you are struggling.
    They can mount up fast
    I will weigh him up next week mate, potentially some concrete AJ info is released soon and stick with my current trades this week

    So TMM over Brimson based on the early bye/player/previous years form or do you already have him?

    15 is crazy high, unless you are planning on burning through heaps of trades before R17, or will be sacrificing R17 scores

    How close does this look to a final team? I'm worried that I won't have the funds or trades as I may be trying to assemble my strongest 17 ASAP. Someone please reassure me?

    14 trades 35k cash

    Cook
    Fifita TPJ
    Taumalolo Arrow Harris
    DCE ARey
    Mitchell Isaako
    Tedesco Ponga Mbye

    Smith
    Matterson
    Murray
    Sua

    Martin
    Lane
    Brimson

    Purely based on an extra R13 body with potential mate, went okay at the Panthers with Cleary averaged around 35, and is same type of player as Brimson where he wont get nothing KM wise but will rely on tackles, low error rate and the odd few attacking stats to go well

    I see him as the same risk as Brimson for cheaper

    Johnston is only meant to be out this week, he only has a minor hamstring strain with no tearing or anything so should be back next week or the week after.

    Douehihi has a BE this week of 37 so his price shouldn't skyrocket, and with a few Rabbitohs playing origin there will be a spot for him in the 13 somewhere
    Doueihi played Hooker in the WC so Cook could be gone and he might spend some time there perhaps?
    Gagai and Inglis gone and 2 more backline spots open up even if Johnson/Kenner return..
    Worst case you bring in someone else next week

    My biggest decision is Havili or Maloney to remain one more week.
    Rein is definitely gone so have to decide between who remains and is potentially is played in the 17

    Pretty sure Douehi played centre at the World Cup? Lebs had Lichaa and Farah at hooker. Souths also have Farah who'll come in for Cook.

    Douehi for me is only useful if ARey goes down again. At centre he'll score as a centre but without the CTR against his name which would make him ok for cover.

    15 might be a bit much but I think 14 is doable. I've got 22 trades left, so I'm happy to burn a few around the bye rounds to make up some ground.

    I thought everyone had problems with the site tonight but nobody said anything when I mentioned it earlier so thought it was just me. *Shrug*

    Ahh fair point re Doueihi, had a weird feeling he played a little time there, didn't do too much thinking into it haha.
    Either way, will know where he is playing next week.

    TPJ with the high ceiling I'd keep until McGuire is back, so Su'a before the others I reckon
