    I’m in mate, sad state of affairs, just spent 2 hours looking at the upcoming meets which we always do but not this far out. Ironically I won a 4 pass race day to the first round at Rosehill, drinks, food etc, will ask the Mods if we can set up a chat page???? Happy to add weekly intro comments

    keen to join

    Just having a quick look at the grouop racing and how its scored

    looks like there are 2 Group 1s, 3 group 2s and 3 3s and 10 listed/handicapped

    It will be interesting to see which races teams target , personally i preferred it as winning $$ rather than pts

    Yeah 18 races the first day, name a captain for double, same a NRL.

    Depends what horses are named for listed/other. Might be easier getting points from those, anyway with $25k I’m having a crack

    For $25k il have to bring my tipping A game lol

    G1 4th will get you the same amount of pts as a listed winner , i guess the $$$ available will be a big factor .

    Also wondering why there is no AE in case of a late scratching , it would be very rare but it should be available imo

    Just dropping by to offer my congratulations to Dezz, Walson and the rest of the top 10. My commiserations to POD Hunter/Concrete Hands and Flock for missing out on the cash – the top 10 finish is nice and all but the $1k would have been all the better! Having said that, the T&Cs were pretty explicit about it and I thought it would was actually common knowledge that you have to be living in Australia during the NRL season to win. . Honestly I think the reason they have only limited it to Australian residents only (and this is… Read more »

    Yeah – I’m living on the ‘old continent’ and have found SC has reignited my love and following of the greatest game of all. Resigned to not being eligible for cash prizes – not that that was ever likely anyway, given my crappy cappo choices this year! My season mirrored Dean Pay’s – and like the Dogs, I just improved my position moderately at the end! Just realized in last few weeks that I was doin’ ok in 2 H2H leagues – and got through to the GF (1 outta 2), so international rules didn’t apply to the dinky little… Read more »

    With Billy Britain told he’s not needed at souths next year, if he lands a contract at say Dogs or Tigers, what’s the chances of a BBrittain / BBrailey hooking combo to start next year? Will possibly allow 4 gun halves to start…too early?

    Liddle was first choice I always thought at the tigers?

    Yeah he is atm and is a solid player, I dont think he’s the attacking threat that Brittain is. Will be interesting to see where Brittain ends up one to watch, if he lands a staring role somewhere (he deserves one) then dual rookie hookers to start could be an interesting option

    Liddles more of a runner and Billys the ball player. Pretty sure Liddles gone for the first half of the season but Koro might be the replacement.

    If Brittain lands a starting job at any other club, that hooker duo will be almost a no-brainer for R1. It’d be hard to pass up two starting hookers at their respective prices – you’ll be unlikely to get that type of value in any other position.

    100%. If you look at your side as 17 players instead of 1 HKR/2 FRF etc then having 2 of your 17 be almost bottom priced playing 80 minutes for a 50+ average means you can splurge the rest elsewhere and maximize value for money.

    The Myth

    The Myth

    I think it would depend on the benches imo. If they are both starting but only playing 50-60min, then they’d be decent cows but not too 17 worthy.

    If eagles play Fainu for 80 he will probably be a keeper so will hard to go against as he will be priced well.

    perrin_07

    perrin_07

    When he played 80 his stamina was an issue. Either that goes up or there’s a utility on the bench.

    Manly have done exceptionally well so wouldn’t be surprised if they try something similar again next year

    A Flock Of Sea Eagles

    A Flock Of Sea Eagles

    While the makeup of benches will be needed to be taken into account, it’ll be hard to pass either of them up, as both will be potentially underpriced by 30+ points. Whereas Fainu will be priced at a 53-point average, and yes, while he may have keeper potential, I don’t think that outweighs the value that Brailey and Brittain will provide, especially since the price differential could allow you to grab a keeper in another position (rather than settling for a midranger). We’ll probably all need to have at least 1-2 players in our starting 17 early on that we’re… Read more »

    1 80 min game he scored 37 , how do you know B Brailey avg 50s in a team with pearce and ponga and players like mann and watson there? Sold option but not really a lock in imo

    First of all, you’re mistaking Jayden for Blayke – Jayden is the one going to the Knights, and Blayke will be staying with the Sharks. Second of all, a one-game sample doesn’t indicate anything about his potential, especially since it was literally his first full-game of his career, and it was against the Raiders – not exactly the greatest circumstances for him to put up a strong SC performance. Although we are a season away, it sounds like he’ll be the starting hooker next year, and I’d imagine he’ll get considerable game-time, given how the club views him (after all,… Read more »

    Yeah if manly carry a bench hooker then that means he’s not really an option.

    Obviously we have no idea on the landscape for next season. If we have a lack of good cheapies then it would be silly to pass on any good ones.

    Plenty of time to decide. Hooker is showing signs of potentially having 4+ good options. I’d love to see that situation come to fruition.

    i’m with you myth , fainu is a lock in at hooker at that price imo , would be at least 100K underpriced so your rookie hookers needs to make at least 300k imo . il be happy to pick 1 and hope he is the right one. Even starting with cook and fainu could well be an option pending cheapies in othe positions , with jurbo and co not producing numbers it might be better to sacrifice in that position imo Stimson Sua Ford H Young could well be the way to go along with Lolo Interesting options next… Read more »

    So in the end my call for a top 6 was and still is a better finals system , both sharks broncs and tigers all didnt desreve to have a sniff . Top 2 should have had the week off as i said before , how is coming first and winning 20 games then losing your first final a reward of consistency? I still reckon the finals should be top 6 with top 2 off and that would have left manly vs eels and raiders vs bunnies , waste of a week all for the $$ but sacrificing quality footy… Read more »
