    Had my draft this evening and there were a few issues with people not picking live even though I asked them to do, issues with the app and people saying pre-draft selection didn’t follow their order. Anyway here’s what I was able to put together, the plan went out the window first pick but I was able to hit all my targets apart from RTS and Hughes getting snagged before I wanted then (RTS one pick and Hughes a couple of rounds before I was planning on taking him). Anyway… J.Hodgson (VC) S.Burgess, D.Alvaro M.Taupau(C), R.Matterson, I.Papalii A.Reynolds M.Morgan J.Isaako,… Read more »

    Mate i was trying to (sams seals) but it kept stuffing up and going white screen, couldnt select the position for duals either. I think i managed to do half my picks properly.

    I had issues too (ShowNGo). I updated the app a few days ago but it spazzed confirming my selected player so it gave me a random player. I got smashed in the 2nd row but I’ll make do.

    True, my mate had huge issues with it as well. Really disappointing.

    I have a live draft tonight. How do I find out what pick number I have?

    I couldn’t find it on mobile, but on PC go to league and it will be to the right of the ladder.

    Needed FE cover with my last pick and picked up Carry…but I think it was a mistake even if I have the depth to hold him to see if he rekindles his previous success. Other options are:

    K.Foran
    A.Sezer
    J.Reynolds
    T.Roberts
    T.Martin

    Rather the duel of Foran and Reynolds, but Reynolds would need to be playing 80 at FE. So trade out Carry or hold and wait and see???

    Picked up twal out of free agent pool after seeing team lists. Should i look to start him or gillet this week (can move josh papalii to either position) not sure on both their minutes. Thinking twal i feel like hes a safe 50

    Do the four forwards on the Tigers bench worry you at all re Twal?

    Slightly im hoping for 45-50 mins but im not too sure.i think gillets at least gonna get 50 mins but im also worried about how involved he’ll be feel like they’ll score similiar

    Yep, hard to know what is the right call as you are running blind on both counts. Might just have to make the call and learn from round 1.

    I’m in a similar position. Released Eisenhuth and picked up Twal.

    Its Twal vs Mcguire for a spot in my 13 but got no idea about their minutes. Leaning Twal

    I’ve got Holland , Mansour, Bateman , Lafai , CNK , and Fonua in my backline and reserves … cannot for the life of me figure out what combo to use

    Any ideas ??

    Can throw Bateman into 2nd row over finucane if need be to .

    I just picked up fonua cause I think he’ll monster the eagles backline , and Mansour is probably a must for me .

    I’d leave Lafai and CNK on the bench and play the other four in CTW. A fullback v Titans is very tempting, but CNK is a bit of an unknown quantity, so based on what we do know, the other four are superior to me. If in doubt, go with your gut.

    2nd take at a draft league after I realised the first one I went in had no rolling lockout. 10 Man 8th pick
    Farah
    Tapau,Lodge
    Brown,Tohu,Murray
    Bunt,Wighton
    Holland,Nofo,CNK,Kata
    RTS
    Bench Siro,Mbye,Nikora,Salmon
    Really happy with my pack but left with mostly scraps in the backs. Took a bit of a punt with Nikora and Salmon with my last 2 picks.

    I have angus in my second row does he score well still coming off the bench? or do I replace him with Adam Elliott, taka, or Niukore or host who are all free agents? obviously not swapping just benching him and ditching carty… alternatively I can play nikora in second row and grab a ctw? Any suggestions lads?
