The Final Weekend

Score Round / Overall Rank Trades (0) Team Value
Round 26 1265 18829 / 1 $            9,351,500

So this was it, the final round.  The culmination of an offseason of planning, and hours upon hours of research, planning, and crucial decisions.  It was really down to Costas and me, and I knew I just had to make a few sensible decisions and I was going to be staring at $50k in my bank account.

Trades/Score Breakdown

Score Round / Overall Rank Trades (11) Team Value
Round 16 1352 1114 / 1 OUT – Lolohea
IN – Rapana
$            9,085,000

So the start of round 16 brought with it the news that I would have no hooker, with Parcell injured and JFriend on the bye.  I was kicking myself for my last minute trade of Granville to JFriend at this point, but the silver lining was that I would only have 18 players available and most of my AE nighmares (like French) were on the bye, so it was effectively a free VC loop week.

Trades/Scores Breakdown

Score Round / Overall Rank Trades (40) Team Value
Round 1 953 24257 / 24257 OUT – Woods, Aloiai, Copley
IN – JTurbo, JFH, Lafai
$            6,493,800

It took all of 1 round for me to start going away from my original game plan of playing the percentages, not trying to go too out of the box in my early season team choices (i.e. play the common players since everyone else would, play safer forwards like Carter as reserves).  Of course that resulted in me playing ATay (36) over Hastings (70) and Rankin (31) over Carter (77); by the end of round 1, I had already left 80 “no-brainer points” on the pine.

Traders Anonymous – 2016 Season in Review

Wow, what a year 2016 was.  I think I speak for all of us when I say 2016 has been of the most unpredictable NRL seasons on record, which in turn has delivered what I consider to be the toughest year of SC I have taken part in.  I think we saw an unprecedented amount of controversy (and suspensions for bringing the game into disrepute), numerous SC-relevant players leaving the NRL throughout the year and/or suffering season-ending injuries, an unexpected late-season cameo from one of the most SC-relevant players ever, and the constant and recurring threat of high ankle sprains (a.k.a. syndesmosis a.k.a. inevitable final team list shenanigans being more guaranteed than a 78th minute Kenny Edwards cramp when the Eels are up by less than 4 #munstergate #tturbogate).
