Who are the other option in those positions? If you don’t go brimson who is the alternate fullback? Same with 5/8

At the moment I have Watson and Schuster at 5/8 with Teddy and Brimson at FLB, if i go with Munster Watson will be backup and I will have to find a cheap FLB.

Schuster might be a bench utility. Definitely talented and if foran goes down will work well for those who took him. Munster has better base than Brimmo and brimmo is coming back from injury.

Is T. Pangai worth a gamble with Haas out for the first 3 rounds, he should play big minutes and be the dominant forward. He has been in and out of my side, just looking for arguments for and against.
Thanks.

Peaked my interest. Just not sure where to get the extra cash for him, the way things are changing with injuries might be first tlt that I look to bring him in seriously.

Think he would be 60 plus minutes at 13, just not sure how Asiata will be used.

I’m pretty sure I’ll take the gamble on him. If (and it’s a big if) he can stay out of trouble I think he will be a handy pod. Dual flexibility also makes him very handy.

Thumbs down assuming you don’t have to play Leniu

Based on first trial list Welch is looking like coming off the bench. Might rule him out entirely

You can’t read to much into a trial but who knows, Welch is an off loader he could cause some damage coming on when the opposition is tiring.

Good point, still a watch for me though. If he does end up on the bench 450 is too much, but definitely see his upside. I’ve had him in my team a few times.

Fingers crossed the white rhino gets the gig. He’s the kind of player you need in that position.. work rate and offloads. Mmmmmm

No back-up hooker named for Dragons in Charity Shield. McCullough for 80min?

Also, Merrin looks to be training with the starting team on some of the videos on the dragons website. Any chance he could jag 40 mins?

Good spotting, Mr. Hairy.

It looks like:

  • Vaughn and Lawrie in the frontrow
  • Sims (left) and Ford (right) on the edges
  • Merrin at lock
  • Bird (left) and Lomax (right) as the centres.

To answer your question, yes, I can definitely see him getting 40 mins if he’s named in the no.13.

It’s an interesting prospect because he’s always been a PPM beast even when he averaged 70mins in his prime. Last few years he has had his minutes whittled down unfortunately but if can grab 40+ a game in the middle he will easily average 10 points above his BE. Just the question whether he still has the legs for it and what kind of bench dragons have (Kerr, Fui, Alvaro all fighting for forward minutes).

If merrin starts, gets 40min and gets a license to offload (which the dragons need) could be very handy at his price. Others at that price are generally on an edge and less consistent.

Just feel that unless we get some better cheapies in the CTWs people are really gonna get hurt by going so cheap. I like the POD picks of TPJ and RSmith however think they will do well in the opening rounds, although you may want to weaken the 2RF and grab a backup half instead of Walker.

Like it. Good balance as long as Kolo and Laurie get picked round 1.
