Haas AFB A.Fifita M.King
D.Fifita B.Smith Lolo Luki Momoisea b.turbo
Aitken lomax Tago Penisini Vailea Amone Koula
Let’s start this off!
Well balanced team mate – wouldn’t touch A Fif myself and prefer S Walker over Keary with goal kicking duties
Appreciate the feedback mate, my biggest worry with S walker is that he was almost unplayable against tougher opposition last year, and if he’s improved enough to become your starting HFB.
Goodluck mate… gotta love the Teddy/Papi duo at FB… I’ve bite the bullet and rolling with Turbo.. let’s go!
THE PIMP is BACK… Hallelujah to that
I think I’m set…
AFB, JTB, Bullemor, King
Fifita, Matto, Lolo, Katoa, Olakau’atu, Tuilagi
Aitken, Fermor, Tago, Penesini, Russell, Vailea, Koula
$17,300 in the kitty…
How exciting! 2 sleeps till season starts! Goodluck everyone!
2nd Row is money mate – great team
Appreciate the feedback legend!
Teddy and Pappy is probably the same cost as Turbo and Cobbo if not less, Id look into that! but other than that 5/8 is a bit dicey but other than that all good
Yea cheers brother!
which king did you go with
Grant / Randall
Haas Bully / King King
Fifita Crichton Fermor / Tago Tuilagi Momoisea
Hynes / Schneider
Hastings / Ilias
Bird Aitken Coates Penisini / Russell Amone Vailea
Teddy / Papy
Plan is to take a look at Hynes and if he doesn’t look good in the first two weeks, an easy swap to Munster with Hastings as duals. Tried to load up on CTWs that can play 2RF given the current conditions but could backfire if the game is played as fast early on.
Love the Hynes pick… Goodluck!
Haas Uto M.King Momoisea
D.Fifita Aitken Fermor Luki Nanai Tuilagi
Staggs Amone Tago Mann Penisini Gildart Koula
Would you sell DCE for Hastings so I can move Aitken/Fermor down and strengthen my 2RF?
Bit of a different make up… I like it! Nice work!
Thank you, I also liked your side with Turbo and a few good pods in it
Haas JTB King King
Fifita Lolo Bullemor Tuilagi Momo Burbo
Mann Coates Tago Amone Penisini Vailea Koula
How’s the balance of this team look with Turbo in the side? Obviously short in the 2RF’s and CTW’s. Thanks.
Nothin wrong with this team.. love seeing Grant and Munster in there… now I want them lol.. Goodluck on the year ahead!
Great team but it’s a ballsy move starting with both Grant & Munster (who will both miss R1). But WOW! I love the look of those fullbacks in the same team. Well done
Haas Tino (King Thompson)
Fifita Crichton Taumalolo Martin* Bullemor*(Tuilagi)
S Walker (Schneider)
Sloan Coates Tago Penisini (Cobbo Amone Vailea)
Im not a fan of Ponga for anything more than pod value, dont see the knights doing heaps
Good team with a very strong 2nd row. I personally couldn’t start without Teddy or Turbo but it’s certainly a POD move. Good luck
AFB JTB king Afif
Fifi Angus Lolo EKat Nanai Kelma
Sloan Smith Penisini Russell Tago Amone Vailea
Feels pretty balanced, main areas would be FRF2, 2RF Bench and CTWs. Any suggestions?
I like it. I haven’t seen too many teams without Haas (but I think your FRF is solid enough). Good luck
Good side mate, FRF will sort it outself out in a month or so.
Trying to fit the last 4 players under the salary cap, which would be my best option?
TU: Aitken, Nanai, Gildart and Koula
TD: Taumalolo, Bullemor, Billy Smith and Vailea
i’d go 4 starters vs 3 and a possible bench so TD for me also TD gives you 4 for rd 13
TU – Staggs + Matto
TD – Momi + Olakau’atu
TU: Angus & cheapie )(probably the Knights guy)
TD: Lolo & Katoa (NZ)
Haas, AFB, (Cheap, Cheap)
Fifi, Arrow, Fermor, Tuilagi, XX, XX
I’m high on Crichton and feel very ordinary about Katoa…
Got a lot going on this year so won’t have the time or head space to deal with overall so going to focus on H2H as I still crave those mate2mate bragging rights haha. With that said, it’s a different strategy initially and more about cash generation. So, the big questions are;
1. Not if you’re in a quality comp
2. Vailea, Schiller has rapana and kris to return
3. I’ve gone bullemore as he should get a decent run and is dual. But not confident on him. King will be a storm bench forward- generally don’t make too much cash. Go with your gut
Hope I’ve helped
Haas, Tino, JTB, King
Fifita, Bsmith, aitken, Fermor, tuilagi, momo
Mann, tago, penisini, Russell, amone, vailea, koula
Hello and good luck all!
It’s a big call running Grant & Munster (both of whom will miss R1). It’s a well balanced team but probs a little bit weak in CTW. Good luck
Hey gang, can’t wait for tomorrow!!!
Any help or suggestions would be most appreciated.
Grant / Randall
Haas, Bullemor / JKing, MKing
DFifi, Curran, Luki / Tago, Nanai, Tuilagi
Hynes / Schneider
Munster / Ilias
Aitkin, Cobbo, Smith, Penisini / Russell, Vailea, Schiller
Solid team mate, good structure. My only concern is having Bullemor and J.King as #2 /#3 FRFs but hey we have to make sacrifices somewhere.
Agree, if you want cheap in the fr maybe add jtb
This is a very well balanced team. As stated above it’s a big call running both Grant & Munster in R1. My only other concern is a lack of depth in FRF. Good luck
Haas AFB Momo M.King
Angus Matto Young Luki Bull Tuilagi
Aitken Fermor Coates Penisini Vailea Amone Tago
20k in the bank, thoughts?
That’s a great looking team!
TU – Sam Walker
TD – Mitch Moses
Remaining: 61K Grant, Randall Haas, AFB, JTB, MKing Tino, Nikora, Luki, Bully, Tuilagi, Momoi Ilias, Schneider Calker, Hastings Hammer, BSmith, Tago, Amone, Penisini, Vailea, Koula Turbo, Teddy Had been fairly set on this team with small changes here and there until TLT. After reading through a lot of insight on this site, feeling very iffy about my 2RF. I’ve selected based on the theory that the likes of Turbo, Teddy, Calker and Haas will cover up the lack of scoring but seems like I’m banking on too much. Am I better off downgrading the likes of Calker, Grant and Teddy… Read more »
Wow! that’s a different & ballsy team & I LIKE IT! I think your team well & truly covers any deficiencies in the 2nd row but I’m worried about your half backs & having to start Ilias. Then again those fullbacks do look fantastic. Good luck
Cheers TK, think I’m taking the chance of starting him this week against the Broncos but see how things pan out.
TU: Hynes & JTB
TD: S Walker & Fermor
Stuck in my halves now that cleary is out !
Randall – Grant
Haas AFB – M King J King
D Fifi, Crichton, Murray – Luki* Tago* Piakura
Hastings – Schneider
Amone – Ilias *
Lomax Staggs Fermor Penisini – Sualli Koula Vailea
Teddy – Pappy*
let me know your thoughts !
Good side with a gun 2nd row & CTW’s but yeah I agree that u need to upgrade one of your starting halves.
Thinking of dropping luki to Tuilagi to free up cash for SJ. Will use SJ as a stepping stone to cleary when he returns. Hopefully scores well with an easy draw
I don’t think you can have those 3 guns in the 2RF and run 4 cheap halves. Might need to downgrade and spread your cash.
Who would your pick in the halves be now that cleary is gone?
Munster is my call for the guy to hold your halves together. If you cant find the cash for him, then your next options are the parra or roosters halves, but I cannot tell you which one of those is the best option.
Any concerns having grant Munster and pappy tho?
Don’t mind Dylan brown as a consistent scorer or S walker
I dont think so, all 3 are likely to be in the top 2-3 in their position come seasons end. Last year I had Smith, Munster and Pap + JAC at various points.
