    Hmmm ok

    Friend to Rein - I would 100% do this one if I had Friend. Why do you need that second trade? Sele still has cash to make. Unless TLT forces it.

    Yeah I’ll wait for TLT of course.

    I reckon Yeo and Kikau back this week. Sele bench or out of 17

    Trades this week

    Brown to CHT
    Burns to Rein

    I really wanted Ponga (Bruce Banner alert!!!) but just couldn't go through with trading a borderline keeper to fund it (yet..)

    Team - pending late mail and consideration of looping

    Cook(c)
    Fifita Napa
    Arrow Murray Garner
    Reynolds CHT
    Batman Birdman
    Tedesco CNK Sivo

    Macca Rein Nikora Lawrie

    Things were looking great until a list min switch of Garrick into the 17 and an injury to Napa.

    Round 4 core 851, round rank 6,590 - overall rank 249

    Edited for Reynolds +4

    Early trade thoughts, I want to get away from the rookie WFB3 roulette so Ponga might be on the radar. Will need to throw a few options into a spreadsheet (YES!)

    FRF cover isn't dire yet but I'd be targeting Taupau soon (plays rd 12),
    Ponga is also a good call to avoid WFB roulette.

    Think if you can fit them both in over the next few weeks and get the right cows/tradeouts you are looking great. Napa and Macca are probably my tradeouts of that bunch if it helps. Next week Bird/Garner.

    I'd monitor AFB as an alternative to taupau.

    That would be typical but I like to roll with the punches anyway. Luck usually evens out over the season (jinx) so if I can get through the bad marginally better then I'm going ok.

    Planned trades:

    Macca to Ponga
    Napa to Xerri


    Rookie roulette removed from the starting 13. This leaves cash next week for a FRF upgrade (r12 in mind) or maybe Crichton to push Garner to bench.

    Cook(c)
    Fifita Lawrie
    Arrow Murray Garner
    Reynolds CHT
    Batman Birdman
    Tedesco Ponga CNK

    Rein Nikora then two of Xerri Sele Rava Garrick Sivo (+ Keighran, maybe looping?)

    Edit, gone cold on Okunbor. Just don't trust the Bulldogs not to stink it up. Xerri instead

    Radar

    AFB, Taupau, Moses (keeping an eye), Surgess (he is on the never again list...), Burns (back in?), Lewis (nah), Tolman (needed?), Rapana (18/19 loop), Lolo (pending injury return date)

    Edit Sutton (mid priced cash / unders inj cover), Wighton

    Edit JFH

    Edit Turbo (inj, wont play origin 1), Koro/Fainu (DCE inj news), Waddell (mid cashie), Mahoney (missed him, too late?), Martin, Kikau, McClean

    Depending on injury news etc....

    Trade thoughts:
    Bird to Haas
    Sivo or Rava to Taupau


    Team would be:

    Cook(c)
    Fifita Taupau
    Arrow Murray Garner
    Reynolds CHT
    Batman Nikora
    Tedesco Ponga CNK

    Rein Laurie Haas then one of Xerri Sele Garrick Sivo/Rava (+ Keighran, maybe looping?)

    Edit, Bird to Haas is locked in. The second trade will have to have some serious thought.... Taupau looks like a really great pick but I like Twal or I can afford DCE. James also a big r12 option.

    I'm jealous. Feels like that team covers my team quite comfortably.

    Nah, I don't think so mate.

    Plus I'm likely to fuck my team up over the next couple of weeks as I'll get sucked into chasing r12 mid pricers.....

    Trades were:
    Bird to Haas
    Keighran to Taupau
    150k bank

    With the Sele red dot I didnt want to hold Keighran. Sivo/Rava get another week to get their cash going again.

    Team:
    Cook(c)
    Fifita Taupau
    Arrow Murray Garner
    Reynolds CHT
    Xerri Nikora
    Tedesco Ponga CNK

    Rein Laurie Haas Batman
    Garrick Sivo Rava Sele

    Round 6 score 971, round rank 4,526. Overall rank 267

    Dropped a few spots. Taupau was a bit underwhelming as a trade in. I think overall it was the right move though. We'll see at season's end.

    Trade thoughts

    Out, Rava Sele Garrick... maybe Garner
    In, Whitbread Sutton erm... I need more of a think. R12 mid price madness perhaps

    Hey Vk, any more thoughts on your trades?

    Rava BE19 avg27
    Sele DNP (BE4 avg29)
    Garrick BE30 avg21

    So Garrick is the most urgent but doesn't really free up any noticable cash, Sele can at least let you loop the 17th spot to Fotuaika (Assuming he has been a good boy and hasn't been dropped, or Whitbread if he hasn't)
    All comes down to a bit of a gamble, where has fotu been and will he play 50mins or do you gamble on Whitbread and his jjob security (Which you can afford to do given your strong team)

    Given Manly play late in the round you could sit tight with that trade and pick once final team lists come in.
    Then bank the other trade unless Sele to a bottom price cow appeals like Allan?

    Anyways enjo reading this and seeing your team come together, well placed for a strong finish
