getting there mate overall structure is good. just a few players with big question marks. Suaalii wont be playing for a while so its best to bring him when he does. should upgrade rudolph is hes not in the starting 13. backline could do with a slight upgrade. like the brown and AFB pick just wonder what the warriors rotation is like.

Thanks Eric… Rudolph has hammy issues which is always a worry
Also can drop Mann and/or Klemmer…. to gain more dollars but I like the POD for now, anyway till the dreaded TLT comes out in 2 weeks

Happy belated 2021 all – can’t wait for the next 2 weeks to spin by!
Here’s my latest lineup:

Cook/Watson
Welch, Lodge, Leniu, Uto
Angus, Matto, JTrb, Tino, Riki, Saddler
Cleary, Sullivan
Munster, Moylan
Staines, Jet, Niu, Laurie, Simo, Haze, Suaalii
Teddy, Pap
88k ITB

For some reason I keep thinking about trying to get the Milf and/or Isaako in, as they can only improve from 2020?!

Any advice appreciated!

I’d look at trading Lodge to Ofa for dual flexibility and better job security. Other than that looks a great team

Not really, Gutho and opacic are definitely PODs, klemmer probably too. Not that many starting with api either

Not really. Approx 60% of any competitive team will be the same. Love the Gutho and Klemmer pods

Thanks all for your feedback. Trying to create balance and opportunities to build cash and points with a few alternate players that may not stand out as much. Best of luck to everyone

Connor Tracey has watched videos of Jack Wighton and Cameron Munster playing fullback at the start of their NRL careers and believes he can have a similar impact in Cronulla’s No.1 jersey.

Hate to break it to Mr. Tracey but I’ve already tried this and it doesn’t work..

The other thing I found interesting is Tracey has spent the pre-season training almost exclusively at fullback with Will Kennedy, while Luke Metcalf has been alternating been fullback and halfback. Does this mean one of Tracey and Kennedy will be in the team and Metcalf will be the utility?

If Tracey wins fullback then Metcalf could be a long shot at utility. They have Billy Magoulis who can fill the utility role also and if they want a bigger body.

Tracey is risky, if SJ comes back early say RD 4 and Moylan is still fit then you would assume Moylan goes to FB and Tracey bench as utility.

SJ won’t come back early returning from an achilies injury. rd8 is already early, Moylan also needs to the make it to rd8.

I believe Metcalf is only a development player at the moment so he’d need to be upgraded to top 30 to be eligible to start the season otherwise I don’t think someone on a development contract can play until after round 10?

Paseka named to start ahead of Aloiai – should means he get above 40 mins – averaged 67 from games above 40 last year.

Hi all, Looking to start a bit of different discussion topic amongst the various pimp my team posts. What player/s will you be watching closely during the trials this weekend? The two obvious choices which will most impact my team are the goal kickers for storm and roosters. I will also be watching Liam Martin (and to a lesser extent Capewell) very closely. With chat that he could be spending time in the middle I think Martin could become a gun this year playing 45ish on an edge plus 35ish in the middle, being similar to what Tohu Harris was… Read more »

Similar to you ill be watching the Bunnies edges and the pack rotations/fitness levels for the Tigers and Titans.
.
Outside of that, Drinkwater’s shift to fullback should be intriguing, hoping Hola has an impressive game to maybe push for an edge spot.

Knights have a decent draw but it is good to know it doesn’t always mean anything, they have lost their last 7 or so against dogs.

Mann inside him who prefers to go himself and Hoy at back who whilst could do well is not Ponga

I don’t know how much you can read into minutes especially since big minute important players won’t play the full game

Thoughts? Anderson and ben trbo are just placeholders at the moment until TLT

Cook, (Liddle)

TKO, Lodge, (uto) (saddler)

Crichton, Brown, Barnett, (Davey*) (Riki) (Anderson)

Cleary, (CHN*)

Brown, (Watson*)

Fergo, Staines, Niu, Fusitua, (Laurie) (Simo) (Trbojevic)

Teddy, (Pap*)
