    You have spent $1,877k on your NPR’s. I would look to reduce that to at least $1,600k (less if you can). J Williams and J Saab are probably a little to expensive to have sitting in NPR’s at this stage of the season.

    Hey mate, welcome to the second-greatest game on Earth. For a first crack, the team looks good. Big issues I see: your 2RF and FLB are on the weak side, with a lot of investment in your CTW. 2RF is the engine room of your SC team; you want good, consistent scorers. You can rarely choose 6 genuine guns but as a rule, you want 3-4 guns or “borderline guns”. You have 2 currently in Lolo and Dfaf. My advice is to increase the spending you’re doing in this area as a minimum. A gun and a mid-ranger in the… Read more »

    It’s actually a decent team TBH, you have a few sleepers in there (knight, fifi, hess) and some nice pods (edwards/sivo).

    Yeo im not sold on at all, for the same price swap him to Capewell who will score better.

    Otherwise welcome to the site!

    Right so, this is about the 115th version of my team, I have left Haas out which I am not 100% of Hookers – Grant, Braily FRF – Papalii, Taupau, Big Red AKA Horsburgh, Z Musgrove 2FR – Lol, M Barnett, D Fifi, J Williams, T Flegler, J saifiti 1/2’s – Moses, Laui 5/8’s – C Walker, G Williams CTR’s – Ramien, Simonsson, Mann, Saab, Best, Eisenhuth, Leleisiuao FB’s – Ponga and Paps Still got 106k in the kitty which I kinda wanted to hold onto… Ob’s from cheapies in there that may not start so will be subbed out… Read more »

    The Grant trade is reportedly unlikely so you might have to blow it up and start again.
    Barnett is set to play lock, he is only valuable on the edge. Papalii is likely to regress coming off such a crazy run to end the season.

    I’d rejig the forward half TBH. im not sold on papa and taupau since they have no value to be made. Flegler and Saifiti are career plodders who need to be given the flick

    RE: Taupau and value, I think it depends on how you like to play SC (money making vs points early) and the rest of your team. I don’t hate picking an extremely solid FRF option in a year many are going light in the FRF.

    yea thats fair, but instead of papa+tapau he could go Haas+knight and have both points and value

    Yeah can’t argue with that. He could just use his extra 100K to go Pap -> Haas (with a slight downgrade elsewhere) but with the ostensible lack of cheapies, Knight’s potential value is very appealing.

    How anyone can leave Haas out is totally surprising. Apart from fullback vs bottom teams matchuups, Haas will probably be the safest captaincy choice all season.

    Last year if you took the safe captain every week you lost a lot of points. He plays early every week so you’re eliminating a lot of VC options.

    Latest team with the hope of Angus starting and actually getting value from the right side:

    Api / Brailey
    Haas Knight / Rudolf KK
    Lolo Murray Arrow / Crichton* Fifita* Sua*
    Cleary / Walters
    Williams / Luai
    Isaako Capewell Mann Best / Coates HSS Lele
    Ponga / Pap*

    Nice side. Great back row. Only issue is the gamble of starting without Cook or Smith. Like Capewell in ctw with Wacko saying he will start on an edge.

    What’s your logic on Cotric? Never been SC relevant before and poor base. I ask because I also want to see him as an option as I think he’s a realworld gun but I just can’t justify him based on anything he’s done in the past.

    I’m not sure he was fully fit after coming back from injury last year and getting his first crack in the centres. With the departure of Rapana and BJ I’m expecting Cotric to pick up his workload with more dummy half runs. He also plays outside the most creative edge fwd in the comp. I’m expecting this to be his breakout SC season. I’m hoping to start with him but am a little put off by Batemans injury and the possibility of ball hog Tapine getting the spot for a few weeks.

    With his draw he only has to take his priced at the moment average of 39pts to a 50pt average and he quickly makes $100k. Throw in a couple of trys or try assists in his first few games Titans (h), Warriors (a), StGeorge (h), Manly (h) and this could easily achievable.
    If he doesn’t, he shouldn’t lose any coin with his current base hopefully.

    true he might not lose value but you have a sub 40 scorer for almost 4 weeks..

    Couple of NPRs and probably risking it with a few players but happy to change it up. Dumped Kikau for Crichton but keen to bring him back in. Worth punting Turbo or RTS to fund the move?

    No genuine gun half is a bold strategy, WH.

    I enjoy the zagging you’re doing at FLB but if you went Turbo -> Papy you could still take the POD route but turn Stimson into Kikau.

    Or if you wanted to keep Turbo, you could go RTS -> Papy and Doueihi -> Best to fund it.

    I don’t think I have seen a season like this before. So much surprise coaching moves or bullshit from NRL coachs.
    Murray moving to edge a season early, McInness to play some lock with Merrin and Lawrie, Brisbane team self destructing with positional changes eg. Glenn and Boyd in the run team with better players in TPJ/Fifita and Stagg on the bench, Angus Crighton to play in the centres and now Valentine Holmes to start on the wing.
    Crazy pre season

    Never believe a word Green says. He’s likely to name Holmes on the wing for rd 1 but he’ll line up at fb.

    It’s also fueled by the media who are struggling for reportable news so any half baked rumour gets spread around pretty fast. I’d take everything said with a grain of salt until trials are over.
