    Nice. Interesting team with a few interesting selections.

    Well balanced and love some of the different selections. I really like a pod that others have sworn off getting back in their team again like Katoa and croft. Could remain a pod the whole season.

    Cheers for the reply.

    McCullough is probably one of the most selected Hookers so no risk there.

    How many minutes are you expecting for Ah Mau? He had 5 games where he played 45+ Minutes and he averaged 50.2 points (I didn't factor the 91 point game he had.) Which is amazing. Honestly if he starts and looks to get 60 minutes he may end up in my team. I may even grab him instead of Bromwich

    I love the Vaughan pick if he returns to form of 2017. My issue is that was an amazing year, and last year he averaged 1 minute more and still scored 11 points less. For me there are too many factors to say he returns to that form with the Dragons having Graham, Frizell, and Sims doing a lot of work. That is before factoring in if Jack de Belin. Unless you are really confident in Vaughan, then I would prefer TPJ.


    You have a really different pairing in the HLFs compared to most. I am not sold on Croft, he has shown he can score well. Particularly back end of the last year. Yet his first 5 games last year he didn't even get over 30 points. That would scare me particularly with Munster, Hughes and Brandon Smith when he comes on wanting to do their best to show up their positions. He could go on to average over 50, but you have guys like M. Morgan who are 100k cheaper with less question marks.

    I also don't see much upside for Munster if he is in the HLF's starting. His scores fluctuate far too erratically. He can post up big scores in the 70+ range, but also just fluctuates too much for my liking. If he goes at scores 70+ points to start the year, that would be amazing, but if he scores less than 40 points for three games then you could end up dropping him, before he returns that value. If you are willing to ride out the bad and the good. Then he could return for his price, but I doubt he will earn much cash.

    I am high on Holland starting at CTR.

    What is the belief regarding Watson? Isn't he moving to Fullback? Meaning he will touch the ball less with Pearce most likely taking the majority of kicks and Ponga having the exciting backfield plays. I mean I could see him getting a few more tries. But his scores when Pearce were in the team aren't amazing. That and Ponga averaged 5 tackles per game last season, while Watson averaged 17 tackles. That is a loss of at least 12 points per game for him. So unless you expect a massive bump in attacking stats I don't see value. He also scored 7 tries in 15 games, where as Ponga scored 6 tries in 20 games. So his strike rate could even go down more.

    You have Morgan in your reserves. With the Eels and Warriors HLF's you really dont need 5. So realistically if there is a player in that $600k mark then you could swap out any of Croft/Munster, or save the cash.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Definitely agree with most of your thinking.

    Vaughan is one of my favourite players which is no reason to pick him. I'm probably going with TPJ but Vaughan is a gut feel. I didn't pick him last year off gut.

    LAM is coming to the Warriors who have had an average forward pack since 2012. I'm expecting him to hit 50s regularly with a bigger role and less quality around him.

    Halves is my biggest gamble but not without consideration. Munster averaged over 60 without Slater in the team. If he can do that then I've got a bargain. Otherwise I'll have to move him quickly. Croft has shown his potential and I'm hoping burning everyone last season will mean I'm one of the few with him. He is a good player and I'd rather believe his end of season form is reflective of future form and the start was just rubbish.

    Watson was rubbish at 6 IMO. Of the few games he's played at FB he's scored well. Plus, reading the article about the Knights, he looks like he's ready to make FB his own. He's beefed up and he's fit. It's a gamble... If not he'll be out for Drinkwater/Hughes. FBs score differently to 6s so not worried about losing tackle points. No FB scores well off tackles except RTS

    Morgan is in my team purely because value dictates he should be. I'm only expecting him to be a 40s player whereas Munster and Croft I'm expecting 50s... Tall order I know. Tbf though, my other option I'm considering is Pearce + Morgan. If I get cold feet that's my combo

    Xerri is a no brainer when he gets picked, but don't see him making the 17 round 1. Better off getting some money out of someone else than waiting for him to be picked. I'm also hearing Brown will start over Salmon, I've swapped them over, so you can probably kick him to the curb in the interim.

    I read on NRL.com that he's in for round 1 at wing.

    I'm okay picking Salmon and Brown if they both start. I heard Salmon is training at centre.
