    Thanks mate

    The trade was a bit forced. I cant have CNK leaking cash and I also need to make a quick 100k. It was borderline I think.

    Cook scoring 60-odd was hard to watch. Something in the 40s would have been LOVELY Very Happy Its ok, at least it wasn't a banner!

    Good luck this week!

    Round 15 score 920, round rank 938. Overall rank 2nd

    Well please to get that score this week. I'm a bit surprised that it is a top 1000 score tbh. Had to rely on Xerri and Martin for numbers - not too bad. Watson covered for Ponga.

    A sad farewell to Havili and Martin this week. I need 2 X cash-outs to set up landing some big fish in r17/r18. I've only got ~$20k of wiggle room based on projections..... I'm also very tempted to sideways trade Murray for an extra r16 body to carry through to the end.

    With Milford gone it looks like I've lost Jurbo... BUT I can bring in SJ & Burns. Burns provides great cover rather than relying on a $212k'er

    this is kind of the silver lining for me as well. I can afford to turn a 212k'er into someone who will be decent cover.

    Just while my spreadsheets are down :*****(

    Team from r18 is looking like:

    Cook (c)
    Fifita Haas
    Taumalolo Taupau Murray/r16er (if I decide to burn another trade)
    Moses SJ
    Nikora Bateman
    RTS Tedesco Turbo

    Smith McInnes Ponga Mahoney
    SST Burns Cashout Brittain

    Not quite what I intended. Far from it haha. Trades up my sleeve and around 50k - for a rainy day. No Jurbo and risky halves are not ideal. That's how it played out. Cover is good, depth also.

    Let's see if it gets there without blowing up over the next couple of rounds. Fuuuuuu

    You're looking pretty good. With the way things have played out with injuries/etc, I'm not sure there were better halves to end up with right now. Obviously extra trades are handy to get guys like JTrbo and whichever half is gunning it at the end of the year.

    Great depth though.

    Tough round but survived. Probably a player short for r16 (darn Milf and SST!!!!!!) - damage wasn't too bad.

    Looks like you are still hanging in there still, pretty compacted up the top and not much movement with all the teams so similar.
    Still a chance to finish in the money or supporters leagues I reckon.
    Would take something crazy to run down 1st now or an injury to a captain to shake it up, but shows how critical the bye rounds were in hindsight to make big moves

    Solid result for you and while you were amongst it for a big part some bad luck and misfortune didn't help you to much in the final run home
    At least you gave it a shake, and on another year could have got close but not to be

    With all the ups and downs of both our teams we finished with only 2 points seperating our teams in the end. So will have to sit behind your 39th until next year haha

    Enjoyed this thread and hope you push forward with it next year
    All the best champ

    :ThumbsUp:
