    Haas/Pangai/Uto/Rudolf
    Murray/DFifita/Merrin/Mago/Su’a/BTurbo
    Misses/Williams
    SJ/Luai
    Isaako/Saab/Lomax/Best/HSS/Talau/Coates
    Teddy/Pape

    What do you guys think?

    i like the cook api hooker option , backrow and centre might be a little weak.

    I really think it’s either Cook / Brailey or Api / Brailey this year hey. Your passing up probably close to the best cheapie we have right now. Api isn’t even a lock to play 80.

    Good team but maybe 3 starting forwards from the Broncos is a bit too much I reckon, Knight starting at lock looks a much better option IMO. Also will have to make a couple of changes come TLT with BTurbo and Talau looking unlikely but we still have 4 weeks till the season starts.

    Any reason everyone seems to have jumped off Carrigan? He seemed to be in every team for a while there

    TPJ could potenitally be starting lock. if so carrigan of the bench is a no go.

    Everyone is clueless with what the Broncs backrow will be. Ofa might not be available for rd 1 so even if Carrigan is named to start it could be a trap. There’s even rumours that Glenn will start from the bench. Ofa 13, TPJ and Fifita the edges. Who knows at present. I’d love to start with him.

    Because it looks like he won’t start. If he does start, he’s straight into my team

    Too many big names in the pack and probably won’t start. Ofa is more likely to be 13.

    Yet ofa is named at 8 in the trial and carrigan at 13?

    They are both trialling to be 3rd in the middle forward pecking order behind Haas and Lodge. There really isn’t any difference between prop and lock, at least in the Broncos side, they are just middle forwards.

    not bad mate. reserves are looking a tad thin tho. all your bench forwards are unlikely to be starting.

    Yeah one midrange 2rf short. But that is where you would have got the$$$$ for Turbo.

    First side I have posted for the year

    Api Brailey
    Haas Knight Rudolf Uto
    Lolo Murray DFifi JFH Lucy Kolo
    Cleary Walters
    Milford Luai
    Burns Isaako Mann Best Coates HSS Lele
    Papy Ponga

    I have Milford on the proviso that there will be no Darius outside him. If that happens he will be coming out for someone else

    Currently have JFH over Bateman given injury issues, but again if Bateman starts JFH will disappear

    Looks good enough to roll with until after trials and TLT imo

    Anyone have any other thoughts ?

    Looks good to sit Oc on until we get an idea of team make ups, Milford is a real roll of the dice for me this year, really want to start with him given what we think should be a new set up with croft in there. Its just the price that really makes it tough for me to go all in at this stage

    Yeah like Milford but have been burnt before.

    If the Panthers run with a 4 fwd bench I think JFH is an avoid to the start the year. Something to look out for.

    Good team. I’ve tried to run without Lolo but it just makes me too nervous. Feels better just locking him into my team from round 1.

    I like the Crichton pick if he can get back to his Rabbitohs form. Maybe a bit much money spent in the ctw, but that’s probably not a bad thing as on TLT if the cheapies get named you will have $$ to play with, and if they don’t, you can watch this site go into meltdown haha

    Halves maybe a bit of a concern though.

    OnTheBus

    hoping a few cheapies get named then i can cut 3 of those centre’s and upgrade somwhere else , most likely the halves and backrow.

    Still alot of question marks over these player’s too , 4 more weeks of playing around hahaha

    I don’t really know why I’m posting my team as it’s definitely a work in progress, just wanted some opinions.

    Api / Brailey
    Hass, Knight / Leniu, KKoloa
    Lolo, Matterson, Fifita / Leilua*, Sua*, Magoulias
    Cleary / Williams*

    cant really tear it to shreds since you are basically running THE meta team of all popular players. just sit until trials

    it looks like a solid team that everyone has , sit tight until TLT and see which cheapies get named.

    Strong set of halves. I would run Murray instead of Matto, if cash allows, but that’s just me

    Afternoon Supercoachers,

    After a break from supercoach and footy in general I am in need of an opinion on my squad, I found that just watching dogs games has left me lacking in any knowledge of other clubs

    Side is

    Api/Brailey
    Hass/Mez/Leniu/Rudolf
    Arrow/Kik/Dfifi/Sua/Magoulias/Fa’asuamaleaui
    Cleary/Moses
    SJ/Luai
    Fergo/R.Smith/Lomax/Best/HSS/Leleisiuao/Moga
    Turbo/Pap

    Im sure there are some spuds but have 107k left and spent heavy on halves so can move it around.

    Fotu and Knight are probably better than Mez but that’s up to you.

    I’d drop Moses, Fergo and R Smith to G Williams, Mann and Ramien, then you should have enough $ to upgrade Api to Cook, or Arrow/Kiks to Lolo

    SJ, G Williams*

    Geez that’s one of the better teams with Cook that I’ve seen. Also has Haas, Lolo, Cleary and SJ. Only problem is probably one too many slow burning cheapies in the forwards but I really like it.

    In 2018, Ramien scored 10 tries in 18 games and only averaged 53. Going to be difficult to replicate with Sharks tough draw and some new combos, didn’t play with SJ, Ronaldo, and Nikora last time.
    4 slow burn forwards is too many imo. Magoulias looks like a trap, likely he covers hooker and he’s priced 50k above base.
    Sailor is not playing round 1 according to Wacko.

    Lolo Arrow Brown / Fifita* Jwill* KK
    Moses / Gwill*
    SJ / Luai
    Isaako Lomax Lee Milne / Best Hss Glel

    I think Jwill is worth the extra $$ over Sua with recent news.
