    I reckon he was probably guaranteed until Haas' last 2 weeks but it's between him and Haas now for a spot. Apparently he can play hooker so is kind of a utility. He's got an extremely quick PTB as well, would be massive for Origin, with Cook + Teddy + whoever in HLFs running off that

    Fantasy wise it'd be nice if he didn't play Origin, extra R12 player

    Always a spot on the bench or even 18th man. Not sure if 18th man misses out on Rd12 also?

    As far as I can see the incumbent starters in the Forwards, TSims & Crichton are safe so that leaves Peachy & JDB's place  which has to be Walker and Haas/TPJ. Anyone sees it differently?

    TPJ is no chance.
    Sims spot isn't safe imo.
    I think Murray takes JDB's bench spot.

    Was it arrow that really dropped off after origin?? Said he was burnt out?

    KBrom would have been an unreal player to have started with. Everyone gushing on Stimson, ignored KBrom. Group mentality definitely fucked those thinking of starting him

    Im not sure that it was group mentality. The storm themselves continually hinted at Stimson making a return (during the early rounds).

    There were never any articles or quotes to suggest that KBrom would stay on an edge. No "this is his spot to lose" type stuff.

    Tariq is not safe at all. He hasn't been in good form and Murray is absolutely kicking the door off it hinges for Origin selection. You are like the only person I've seen who doesn't think Murray is going to make it.

    It was a well known fact that Stimson would have started if not for the back injury in pre-season.

    KBrom limited opportunities in the past before but he never really took it, so it was totally an unexpected result.

    Sometimes information can be an hindrance as Fantasy has an element of luck so the punters who weren't aware or had more belief in him than us got lucky with KBrom.

    Canberra's Jack Wighton is firming but for a bench spot, not centre.

    Murray over Jtrbo? What has Jtrbo done to get demoted.

    Only way I see Murray playing is if they swap Haas for Sims ( highly unlikely IMO).

    JTurbo didn't start in origin, it was JDB. JTurbo comes into the middle (for one of the props) and play out the remainder of the game after 20 mins which works well

    Me too. Actually one of my better picks this season (avg of 54 since I brought him in), but a large part of why I grabbed him was round 12.

    Jake Trbo will be the blues #13, I don't think there is any doubt about that.

    Murray will be perfect for coming on after 25 mins and ripping into a tired ruck.

    Yeah I agree with this pack and bench except with Jake starting over Murray. I think Jake is the only 80 min LK in the game since JFH moved to SR and has experience on his side.

    Could perhaps see Haas missing out, but looking through our FR options, he's the guy I'd throw a jersey to based on form. Other than Haas, there's like Tamou? No thanks.

    A lot of people saying it would be nice from a fantasy perspective if Murray doesn't play Origin. Does it actually matter though? Doesn't everyone (serious fantasy players) have Murray? I kinda assume everyone's got him.

    Isn't McLean right in the mix?

    I feel like McLean might get the nod, with Haas at 18th.

    Could potentially be a differential captain in R12 (if missing origin which I don't think he will). Though you'd probably be insane not to captain Lolo next week especially if he's likely to get 80 mins against a weak titans pack (without arrow, Wallace in origin and James injured)
