    Geez that's rough. Like WL said you can probably rule out Mann as almost likely back to his bench role. I'd probably say Dearden or Garrick.
    Also had young sorry so might go with him..
    Also i saw some discussion over putting garrick in the centers over xerri this week ..

    If Papenhuysen is named to start he's going to be the most traded in player this week. I'll trade him him if this is the case but it's going to result in a lot of hard decisions on who to play & who to leave out. Of course Papenhuysen will have to be in our 17's up against the Doggies but that will create a bit of a team selection headache. e.g. most of us have 2 of Tedesco/Ponga/RTS & CNK at wfb but with CNK playing the Cowboys at home you'll want to play him so Papenhuysen will be a reserve. So this probably means you'll have to place a good forward in your emg's because 1 of your reserve spots is taken up by Papenhuysen. In my case I'll have to play 3 of Mahoney, JFH, A-Rey, & Taupau. To me JFH will miss out because last week they rotated L. Martin & Ellis at lock & JFH played most of the game on the edge where his scores drop but Cleary could just as easily mix things up again looking for a win so JFH could start at lock again which will lift his score.

    Oh yeah definitely Young then. Easy one.

    Personal preference. I'm glad I don't have the choice anymore. Plenty of examples of players going well in 'bad' matchups, Xerri is a much better player than Garrick so I'm happy with him

    If he starts this week, my only real option would to be to play over Lawrie (with 2 gun HLFs, CNK + 2 gun WFB). I'd then have to forego Taupau for one more week and hope that I could make the funds up next week for Lawrie to Taupau (10k short this week if I get Papenhuyzen) which would be risky

    Kinda hoping for fantasy purposes he doesn't start due to that selection headache

    I like Sivo at home against the very vulnerable Panthers in their new stadium where they lift much more than Cartwright away against the red hot Sea Eagles where I can't see him doing much at all.

    In your case I would prioritise Taupau over Papenhuysen because of round 12 & because Taupau has the pedigree & is a consistent scorer. Of course Papenhuysen has carved the last 2 games up but I'd say opposing teams will be doing plenty of video work on him coming up with ways to nullify him & the Bulldogs may not be the easy beats we are assuming because they played the Storm away in round 4 & the Storm only won 18-16.

    remember ponga is DPP, for the community team that could mean Ponga to half and not play Carty! Im guessing you have two halves that are solid thought.

    I'm expecting a big game from Cleary this week. He'll be the dominant half with Maloney taking the early guilty plea & suspended 1 game so Luai will start as Cleary's half partner & he is just a ball runner. In fact what does coach Cleary do if the Panthers win. They are desperate for a win & if they win will he keep faith with a winning combination meaning Maloney is gone or bring him back in.

    @ nrl physio, a tweet from Tony Webeck - Fotuaika to ignore a broken wrist to help turn the Titans season around....."I wear a cast on it during the day to keep my bones stable & my wrist doesn't move around too much."

    What a machine Fotuaika is & K. Sims is soft compared to him Very Happy (just joking) but I can't help but think the Titans should rest him so my man Whitbread gets a good run of games.

    Certainty - Rabbitohs. Raiders injury toll is not looking too good. Rabbits should eat it up.
    Upset - Broncos. Now not many may think this is an upset but Broncos are so Jekyll and Hide and Roosters are just all class. 11th v 1st so yeah it would be an upset for Broncos to win.
    Smokey Captain (Fantasy) - Haas. Will need to muscle up against Roosters pack and could be the man to get the Broncos on the front foot. "

    So what are your picks for this week Nostradamus ?

    No worries Booster... I'll give it another crack.

    Certainty - Storm. After a narrow win last week Bellyache would be all over the boys to come out firing against the doggies this week who should have their tails up
    Upset - This ones a little hard this week because I'm bagging all the favourites (Broncos - who i have tipped - aren't favourite but probably should be) but if i had to pick and upset it would be the Titans over Manly. Titans need to prove something this week and Manly may be the team to do it against.
    Smokey Captain (Fantasy) - Cleary. No Maloney this week so should take 90% of the all duties and make the game his. Will be his chance to cement his spot in the Origin side.

    Filling in while A. Johnson is out for a month after surgery so he should play round 12 & round 13 then he'll be a nuffy which you could use for poopholing. So they have Allan playing f/b, Hiroti wing & when AJ returns, Allan back to wing & Hiroti dropped.
