    SJ and Cleary my main candidates.

    Cleary for me. I want SJ to play at least 3 games to prove his fitness.

    I am VERY strongly considering taking the punt on him, instead of getting Cleary this week.

    Are we in this together?


    I can't even work out who to trade out for him. Murray was the one, but now he's bloody starting, with Cook and Crichton on my bench.. I don't really want to trade out Martin already, but he's really my only other trade out option.

    I'm playing Martin & Cook in my emg. If Souths are dominating the Titans & have a comfortable lead then Cook could only get 15-20 minutes.

    I’m not sure either will play. Wouldn’t surprise me to see Nicholls and/or Fuimaono come in late.

    Yep. Laughing He’s like AIDS. I can’t shake him. I’d love him to start and punt him when Matterson’s back.

    Assuming he does play, I probably will. Remember when he was first getting game time from the bench, and busting good scores. Could come on fresh and rack up some tb's against the Titans..

    I own Surgess Crichton and Murray at the moment so I seem to have every base covered, if i can pick the right two to play.... ha


    Also, FWIW, WACKO reckons that Martin will start at 2RF...... tbh, it doesn't make a lot of sense to bench him.

    Martin possibly starting complicates things.

    What do you mean @rabbit that you aren't sure either will play??

    Bringing in a player that misses a game (Cleary) really irks me for some reason.

    Could ring in McInnes and just hope Watson doesn't shit the bed

    Far out, had a late thought.

    Cut my losses and trade Dugan out now for Smith, and keep Lane for 1 more week? Lane has a BE of 20 odd, so should make about $20k if he gets a standard 40.

    Following week;

    Lane -> Aitken

    Then once Holmes tops out/gets moved to wing, use my $50k to jump on RTS or flavour of the month.

    I only have 10 trades, so this effectively costs me an extra trade. Worth it? Basically it's Dugan to Aitken, with $20-$40k extra in my pocket.

    A trade is worth a hell of a lot more than 40k Blain

    I assumed this would be the case. Didn't make a lot of sense Elliot ahead of him. Thinking I want to put Cook at EMG loop and maybe promote Martin to 17

    I would consider trading Cook if all 3 Origins were midweek games but since the second Origin is on a weekend then Cook will have a weeks break between all games up until after Origin 3 so I am comfortable keeping him for the time being.

    Really torn on the Matterson/Cleary trade. I have 13 trades left and have 3 non-keepers left in my squad to upgrade but I am concerned I am going to need trades later on.
