Who do you guys rate as the best value out of LoLo, Manners and Jurbo?

I have the cash for either but can only choose one.

Cheers

I think they all have question marks about them,so for that coin I say no to all….lolo re mins,manners 2nd row? and Jurbo with his pec injury.

I reckon there is better value below in say papaali gilette harris merrin.

they too have questions but 100k less.

I have spent all off-season with the same train of thought simonthetiger

But i’m starting to doubt it – its likely you’ll need them all at the end of the season. Why not save the trade, bank the extra points and scrimp elsewhere?

fair points but I wanna explode out of the gates……and if the afore mentioned three start slower than there price u are behind in points and coin.

i cant pay that much for Gall and co when blokes u know are gonna delover at least 60’s are soooo much cheaper..

If they start to perfrom it should be a straight swap.

But i cant admonish u for wanting those guns……they are proven,i just feel they all have little question marks that stop me from paying the absolute premium.

Lets talk about Gal (hes the one im most interested in of the 4) The guy has consistently averaged 75PPG over the last two seasons. And has been good out of the gates too. You talk about “At least 60s” and “exploding out of the gate” Give me Gallen – who will score ~75 points more than the field in the first five weeks, and do it without the risk / question marks that say Merrin / Tofu have. Im playing Devils advocate – you can scroll back to page 114 – and see some nice points made by bulldogs808… Read more »

ive had gallen in and out of my side and I cant fault yer logic.

one I’m worried that due to his age he might get a little less time and secondly his price just ruins the balance of my side.

ive gone with guys like merrin harris papali surgess as they can really pump out a big one with the attacking stats and they are all at bargain price,

Without seeing your team..

Turn one of your CTW guns into Hiku.
And upgrade Mez / Tohu to Gallen

Let me know if you like it better

I actually don’t have to….I have gone cheapo in the front row/hooker and I have 160 in my kick.

I just turned merrin into gallen and it does like nice.

but I’m going to go with my gut and stick with merrin who I think is going to have a big one this year and against gallen who will still go very well but I think a little down on previous.

Gal has been at the top of the points charts for 10 years…
Why would you not want to pay that much for him..
He is the only proven 70 average guy in the back row….
Mannering and lolo had so called “Carrer year” so be wary if your a follower of that ..
Exact same conversation came up about gal last year and he still came out on top…
No brainer if you ask me with the make up of the sharks bench .
Very inexperienced

Tinkered wit the team but fairly happy until TLT – any advice?

Smith – Garvey
Surgess, Lodge – Kikau, Latu
Papalii, Merrin, Brown – Arrow*, Murray*, Carty*
Moses – Croker
MILF – Watson
Rapana, Croker, Milne, Hiku – Katoa, J. Cartwright, Doueihli

* Reserves

Interesting no JT
2rf is strong w/o any genuine guns
just have to prepare for life with out Arrow i think

Was just plotting along interchanging players willy nilly that had come up in artickes/podcasts etc. and subsequently have a team 80% of “could go nuts, could tank” types.

To much risk?

Smith | Garvey
JBrom, Ese’ese | NAS*, Lodge
Gal, Merrin, Murray | Elliot*, Arrow*, Leilua
Nikorima | Croker
Carty | Watson
Inglis, Mansour, Hayne, Leilua | Isaako, Milne, Katoa
Turbo | Teddy*

That CTW is the definition of risky! Also need a gun half, but I don’t mind it otherwise.

Qldian

If Carty goes pair shape and/or shares minutes with Arrow, you will lose a great opportunity when you could of started with Milf, Munster or co.

The First XIII

You must have a Mil in the bank still.
Pro- This allows probably 4 upgrades when you see who fires.
Con – Downside is it takes you 4-5 rounds to complete all those trades while grabbing the cows and replacing the inevitable injuries/ suspensions. You’ll lose whatever points for the right guns would have put into your overall total, and cost you 4 trades.

It’s nice to think we can pick the right middy’s, but I think just do the upgrades now while the trades are free.

Not too much left over, but had enough that I could go Inglis > Latrell and Leilua > Croker for more stability in CTW after Arrow > Latu for extra 30k.

Think gives a good 4 man bench too (Latu, NAS, Elliot, Teddy with Lodge/Watson close backups) which I have seen go missing in a lot of heavy starting 13 teams.

I wonder what price Carney will start at – I’m hoping no more than 200k, as I only have 43k left to make an easy transition from Croker to Carney.

last time i change before TLT, any advice is welcome. My only issue is ctw i believe, but could change depending on cheapies, positional changes come TLT. Lomax is there for loophole

Smith (Cook)*
Surgess, Lodge (Latu, Uele)
Gillet, Brown, Tohu (Murray, Carty, Butcher)
JT (Croker)
Munster (Moses*)
Mitchell, Croker, Milne, Hiku (Isaako, Katao Lomax)
Teddy (Watson)

I understand the appeal in having someone there for the loophole but I think it’s much better to have all 25 bodies on your roster either scoring points for you or making money for you from round 1.

Lomax aint a bad choice if your going that way with Mitchell ,Hiku in your squad but the Saints play quite a few early mid round games . If your primary purpose is loophole i would fish amongst teams like Parra for a dual who plays later in the early rounds , ie Sunday late Sat.

Best pick out of JDB – Tmez – Brown – Papa – Surgess ???
fyi; Already going w/ Gal, Jrbo (Carty, Murray)

or if someone can sell me tofu’s case

chooksm8

I would go brown, however ive also gone for a punt with tofu – new club, more responsibility, locked in at one position (hopefully), decent minutes, running off SJ, and at decent discount. at worst he gets decent base stats at best he jags a couple LB and tries.

dilligafug

dilligafug

Tohu is likely to start on the left with Green (not SJ) but for what it’s worth I still think he is going to have a huge season.

Brown every day of the week and twice on Sundays

Parra are playing an aweful lot of Sunday games to kick off the season.

Only thing I dont like about Brown is that last season was the the most minutes he has played in his life by a long shot, then he had the WC. I actually thought he looked quite tired in the WC.

dilligafug

His minutes increased from 46 per game in 2016 to 67 per game in 2017. All good forwards make that leap at some point in their career. He’s only 24, is a work horse and was the engine room of the parra pack last season. I’m tipping him to pick up right where he left off… is under-priced and plays the first bye. Was my 1st picked this year!

Yeah, he’s a set and forget. One of 3 players, including CS9 and Turbo, that have been in every iteration of my team so far.

Hey Guys,

Would love some feedback on my team:

Cook (Havili)
JBrom/Lodge (Latu/Kikau)
Merrin/Finucane/TKO (Murray/Carty/Leilua)
JT (Croker)
Milf (Watson)
Rapana/Croker/Mitchell/Mansour (Milne/Isaako/Katoa)
Teddy (Turbo)
2.2k ITB

Mick
Member

Or I was thinking about bringing in Gal and Hiku for Finucane and Mitchell:

Cook (Havili)
JBrom/Lodge (Latu/Kikau)
Gallen/Merrin/TKO (Murray/Carty/Leilua)
JT (Croker)
Milf (Watson)
Rapana/Croker/Mansour/Hiku (Milne/Isaako/Katoa)
Teddy (Turbo)
20.6k ITB

Not sure which team is better or if there is any other improvements?

Team 2 gets my vote.

dilligafug

Much better than your first one imo. TKO only if he’s starting at lock and kicking. Otherwise there are better mid-priced options in the same price range.

If Cook doesn’t get the nod or ends up splitting with Farah I think Lichaa deserves serious consideration at a similar price if you choose to stick with the Smith-less strategy.

HOK Smith [Havili]

Fourth reserve will depend on TLT otherwise I think I’m set. I won’t be fiddling with my team for at least the next 5 minutes.
