Would really love and appreciate any thoughts/advice on the below squad:
HAAS JTBrown AFIF MaxK
Angus Murray Lolo Tapine Fermor Tualagi
Aitken BSMith Penisini Tago Vailea Tass Schiller
100K in the bank
munster is suspended
And? will play round 2
Mahoney / Randall
AFB JTB / JMomo MKing
DFifi Gus Lolo / Nanai Helium Tuilagi
Sexton / Schneider
Hastings / Ilias
Fermor BSmith Russell Penisini / Tago Amone Vailea
Turbo / Paps
1/2 5/8 is pretty light and have the entire Cowboys back row.
Managed to get 23 starters and 2 bench props.
Hass Tino JTB M.King
Lolo Carrigan Arrow
Tago Bully J.Momo
Lomax Aitken Staggs Penisini
Russell Amone Koula
Really like it especially the CTW.
Beware of Koula, his minutes will be limited and will be out of the side when Walker is back. 1st in line if there is an injury though.
Season’s almost here lads! Can’t wait. Think I’ve got my final team below – I’d appreciate any views.
Haas, AFB, JTB/King
DFifita, Matterson, LMartin, EKatoa/EBullermoe/Tuilagi
Staggs, Cobbo, Tago, Penisini, Amone/Valea/Koula
Personally I’d prefer one of the Cowboys 2nd row over Bully. I’m also not a fan of Cobbo on the wing playing for Broncos. Could you downgrade Hynes to like Keary/Moses then upgrade Bully to Luki and Cobbo to Fermor?
I’d also only look at Koula if he’s starting. Dez does love a late change so could see Koula dropping in late.
Chasing some feedback/thoughts on my current side.
Gone with a cash cow W/C set up and backing FB / Hooker to make up the lack of quality / scoring in the front row.
Mahoney / Grant
I.Papali’i / J.Taunoa-Brown / J.King / M.King
D.Fifita / Matterson / Tupouniua / Tago / Tuilagi / Momoisea
S.Walker / Schneider
Ilias / Munster
B.Smith / S.Russell / T.Amone / W.Penisini / May / Vailea / Koula
Tedesco / Papenhuyzen
Locked and loaded*

Randall | Grant
Arrow Uto | Hetherington M.King

Walker | Schneider
Brown | Ilias
Lomax Coates Smith Tago | Amone Penisini Russell
Teddy | Paps
Wondering how long Hetherington will on the field but as a suffering Bulldogs fan I need to include a couple.
No idea how I will ever get Cleary and Turbo in.
Look a bit too ctw heavy as well as probably spending above average on frf compared to what is necessary this year
Thanks for the feedback – I was aiming for a balance across the park with 2 gun fullbacks. I could go a little cheaper at FRF but don’t want to go any lower at CTW
Hey lads, any and all help is greatly appreciated.
Arrow Uto JTB Momoisea

would love some feedback guys. cheers itb 23,200
Haas, JTB, Fifita, M King
Fifita, Angus, Lolo, Bullemore, Tuilagi, Momo
B Smith, Russell, Tago, Penisi, Amone, Vailea, Koula
I like it. My team is similar except I have S Johnson instead of Munster so I could beef up my CTW a little more.
Liking it but probably because I’m running a similar set up at HOK, FRF, CTW and FLB. Assume you’ve weighed up job security of Bullemore and Momo against keeping/downgrading D Fifita
Hi all , I need help ,

Would appreciate some advice fellas, got 250K ITB not sure where to spend it:
AFB, Haas, King, JTB
Gus, Lolo, Arrow, Katoa, Nanai, Tuilagi
Aitken, Fermor, Tago, Amone, Penisini, Vailea, Koula
TU: D. Brown
hey lads. after some opinions on this mob. 30k ITB
Haas, Arrow (Momoisea, King)
Fifita, Crichton, Lolo (Luki, Bullemor, Tuilagi)
Lomax, Fermor, Smith, Tago (Amone, Penisini, Vailea)
Cook historically starts the year extremely slow, i’d be cautious
Best option for the halves?
TU Munster & Hastings
TD S,Walker & brown.
Pretty happy with how this turned out, 70k ITB
Haas Bull (JTB King)
Angus lolo Aitken (Tago Luki Tuiligi)
Lomax Mann Coates Smith (Amone Penisini Vailea)
Good side. I can see Lomax being better post rd5 but I really like what you have gone for here. Could probably save some more cash if you think Momoisea will go well like most do, but I think you have done pretty bloody well.
Thoughts on this team? Should there be more PODS?
Fifita, A Chriton, Aitken, Fermor*
Lomax, Staggs, Mann, Penisini, Tago*
Tedesco, Latrell (To save a trade next week + POD)
Any reason you havent named your reserves/cheapies? I think there are plenty of pods in there, nice side.
Hi all, here is my first crack at my team this year so have at it. Managed to spend every dollar available
AFB Paulo JTB* King
DFAF Lolo Nikora Luki Tago Tuilagi
Russell Mann BSmith Penisini Fermor* Amone Vailea
Pretty good side, vanilla, but good. Think you will be in the top 10% come end of rd3 which is perfect. If Parra go well, and Nikora starts well, you may even find yourself up the pointy end. Nice side.
Unless anyone thinks this is real bad ill run this for week one. If ola is a late out tomorrow ill get sitili. Would love to go sj to Moses but need to find cash somewhere.
hass bully hunt momo
fifita Lucy ola katoa Luke tuilagi
fermor berry tago penisini amone Bailey koula
Plenty of POD’s mate, nice.
Any advice is much appreciated!!
Hass Arrow Momo MKing

And so the COVID protocol circus / merry-go-round begins… JBrom OUT, Sharks coach Fitz OUT….more to come no doubt. Hope your circus juggling skills are good !!! Checking team announcements even more crucial this year…
JBrom = dud, but great update !
Yeh it’s tough they can swap around the 24 names until an hour before kick off
Don’t think that is actually the case. Seems like tomorrow night’s game has already had 5 players from each team list already chopped. Team lists are now down to 19.
