    Congrats and commiserations Trajan!

    I had a shit start to the year -= was away on holiday and no time to sort anything. Then the things I did do didnt get saved. The only saving grace was that somehow I ended up with the Captain on Bridge....

    Anyway, hoping to rectify things from here....

    Don’t quite get the hurt feelings as my only question was around the site for news, but thanks for that.

    I’m sticking strong with him for another game but he doesn’t have a great match up to bounce back on it seems.

    Blues seem to have a good fixture this week, would you play any of the halves over tj and moounga?

    I’ll respond to any advice given

    Does seem like an attractive move but would it be too early? I guess that neg 6 will kill his price

    Yep, I'm chasing points vs the Suns plus dodging a potential price drop. There seems to be lots of trades available for the season. Plenty of time to bank a few.

    My plan will change if I have a heap of red dots....

    I'll spend a bit of time looking at the rookies this week. My picks were a bit hit and hope. Missed a couple of big ones I think

    So, trades likely to be (pending team lists etc)

    Mo to Fo
    2 x rookie fixes

    Thanks Rippin and Tearin. They leave the start of this comp. to the last minute. I'm amazed there are two thousand playing, thats twice last years total. Good luck this round.

    Umanga Jensen dropped, hope it’s not a revolving door centre policy

    The NZ teams will all rotate players this year - a product of the world cup (ABs being rested), deep squads (way deeper than teams from other countries), and the Highlanders in particular change teams a lot anyway.

    Re Umanga Jensen, I suspect he was being Walden in the pecking order anyway.

    They are at it already. Hurricanes are not playing Ardie Savea and no reason given. Perenara and Laumape on the bench. Pocock out injured but Damien Mckenzie returns.

    As you stated the New Zealand teams are going to test our reserves bench all season. I did not expect them to start changing their squads so early and this puts a dampener on

    the moves to bring in the moneymakers. Hurricanes not using B.Barrett either so it appears there letting the Crusaders have this round.

    Yeah now I think the moounga trade is a waste given I lost a backrower, centre, and whoever the lions drop...

    If I have enough green dots I'll still do it I think. It'll be tight

    Apparently Ardie Savea had a knee " twinge " in the last game and they are being cautious with him.

    Decent start, Hemepo only real disappointment

    I’m
    So
    Out of touch with things so not sure if this is true but I think all ABs may need to sit 4 games this season. If so fantasy will be near impossible. Woulda been better to stack with non NZ players...

    Folau gets points for turning up but I'll take it. The problem with going kickers as captains versus the Sunwolves is that teams get greedy going for a try instead of penalty points.
