    Thanks mate, I needed that vent Laughing I like the Trb bros, so I'd like to withdraw the overrated comment Laughing

    Frustrating last couple of weeks though when I have 20 guns and even the shit teams have now managed to assemble 17 and that's all that matters.

    8th in my league just put up 1510 this week, so will be a kick in the guts if I can't get back in the top 4 and get rolled by him Week 1 Evil or Very Mad

    All good mate it's good to vent as it can sure be a frustrating game sometimes. I myself was dirty they took JTurbo off so early and TTurbo was not himself joining in on the points. Seemed to have butterfingers on the day but he be back no doubt.

    I think ive now convinced myself that in order to have a chance of making up ground on the top 10 i need to go unique so i think im going to go with a unique who i believe will finish the season very strongly instead of Turbo. It will probably come back to bite me but i think its now or never. I may be able to play for a top 300 or 200 spot but id much rather throw caution to the wind and risk blowing out to outside the top 500-1000 than never give myself a chance of finishing top 10-100. I'll definitely be death riding Turbo which will make me super anxious but oh well there is nothing to lose. If i was in a cash league id probably play it differently.

    Anyway, nice work being in the top 35! 98 points puts you well within reach. Definitely worth taking risks to make up that ground but in your position you dont need to take any stupidly big risks that are more likely to backfire than succeed. You've got the right mindset though, got to go for glory with that top 10 finish and risk dropping hundreds of places rather than finishing top 50 but not giving yourself a realistic top 10 chance. Sounds like you've got a very impressive history of results so you clearly know what you are doing, its my first year so im pretty stoked ive got myself in the position i have.

    Would be awesome if we could both make the top 10 haha. Best of luck!

    Well done on your first year that's impressive for a first outing. You're game death riding Turbo, never know might pay off. Anything can happen hey.

    Yeah I won't go too hard just yet with the big risks just some I think could pay off. Save it for the last 2 rounds to do the really big risks if not thereabouts top 10.

    Certainly would be awesome if we could scrape into that top 10. Even just one year on this Supercoach with the amount of people that play it. Would be a dream to win some year but if we keep being thereabouts every year you just never know hey.

    I want to trade. I have Cleary and Brown at half, and not wanting to play either, so tempted to get rid of Fifita or Matterson, and get SJ back, lol. Is this my best plan? I really need to win my family H2H this week!

    Sorry I didn't hang around this thread throughout the year, my previous thoughts and impressions of this form of the game are hence the same, I hate it. Feels so easy and boring, can't understand how it's popular.

    Cleary's been pretty good most weeks, I'd back him if I still had him. Sticking with Moses over SJ for me.

    Going off last week's crap, I was tempted to fit SJ in for Matto, RTS, Jake or Moses but all 4 are averaging higher.

    Matto's role has changed to 60 min LK, but against Dogs I'm gonna back him.

    Fifita's looking a bit busted though.. I've left him out again.. and Taupau, but wish I could fit him in too haha.

    Yeah it's ridiculously easy to get guns. So funny how Staggs is worth more than Jake, Nikora, Fifita and not far behind other guns with 20-30 point higher averages like Moses, Cook, Klemmer, Matto Laughing

    Doubt I'll bother playing next year and won't be touching NRLF until changes are made (ideally FailHub gets the ass).

    I switched so many times! I really didn't like him in the rain, but all H2H opponents had him so eventually I complied. Looks like anyone would have been better!

    Was 50/50 all week and ended up playing Nikora over Marsters Crying or Very sad Maumalo was good and RTS equalled Turbo (who i dont have) so i cant complain about that. Not sure who to make captain, might go someone a bit unique!

    Turns out I should've played SJ over any of RTS, Jake or Moses Mad At least Matto scored well.

    Haas, Taumalolo or Cook were my captaincy options, stuck with Cook though. Hate playing roulette, hopefully pays off.

    With Lolo out im going unique and playing Dyl Brown over TPJ hoping for a big score against the Titans. Im playing Burns over Nikora and trading in Cody Walker given Souths have a favourable draw to end the season. Hoping these moves pay off!

    Staggs to Wade Graham. Burns over nikora too. Not sure if I'm playing sj or cleary. 4 res are Cook, Taupau, Keary, Teddy.

    With lolo out, I'm thinking Fifita to Wade Graham, not sure tho. I traded Matterson out last week because his scores had dropped, then of course he went well, so maybe I should get him back instead?

    I wanted to play Taupau this week anyway, so don't mind Tauma out.

    Might drop RTS for SJ this week. Not keen on Warriors vs. Roosters.

    Traded Staggs to Maumalo with my 2nd last. Was gonna get a red dot, but I can afford that prick, so hopefully can break him. Might play him over Nikora, but will see.

    VC on Moses, C on Cook, but might end up on Teddy.

    I thought Matterson might go well last week vs. Dogs. Kind of a must win game for us and naturally we sucked. He ended up playing 76 mins, but Mbye's early injury probably helped with MCK moving from SR to CTR.

    Farah gone could help Matto get closer to 80 mins, but unsure if I'll play him next week if he's back to 60.

    I'm thinking of trading in a 2RF. Who to choose from Wade Graham, who is cheaper, and going OK or Fisher-Harris who has dual position and most people in my H2H league have him: 60 000 approx more

    I think wgraham is a good option, looks lively but with a second string front row will he get the time he’s been afforded so far?

    I brought in Vaughan as he’s a gun playing into form so worth a punt (out was Fifita) subbed lolo for nikora

    Thanks, I looked at Vaughan, but thought maybe Graham was better and cheaper, lol. I'll look further, there are a few options. I like the idea of dual position
