    Not sure how long we can get exited about all this until the inevitable happens. Never thought this bloody virus would cause such an impact on the world. Anyway Cooks out, who to?

    I’m almost thinking api could be a keeper and you get some handy cash to go along with it as well

    The NRL needs to do something now or the govt will just take control and cancel it. It’s all good saying we will go on with players health in mind but their just sidestepping govt regulations atm which only leads to one path. Put all teams in one place, one stadium or just can the season.

    Not sure if I can say this on here as the mods are treading the Murdoch/FOX line on this. But, the NRL are coming across as money hungry pigs. The rest of the world has taken action, why not the NRL? I do love watching the “footy”, but enough is enough.

    How, exactly, are they coming across like money hungry pigs genius? Is it not fair to have a bit of optimism amongst the bleak s**t we are confronted with every day. They are already playing in empty stadiums and taking every possible precaution.
    Maybe they care about the livelihood of the 1000s of people directly and indirectly employed by the code. Kent said on the MJ show, we might be watching 10 teams in the comp next year. Nah, not greed mate, survival.

    The fact the NRL have said they are travelling players in private jets across state borders so they don’t have to comply with borer containment is sidestepping the issue. Bellamy even said it’s not a feasible option, it just creates to much running around. Clubs will probably go under or force to relocate after this anyway. A handful of NRL clubs today won’t survive a recession IF its coming, fans won’t fork their money to go to games, buy merchandise, visit leagues clubs ect. Hopefully the NRL finds a way through this. Not trying to sound like a doomsday clock… Read more »

    Yep, that’s true. I really hope they find a way… it will probably necessitate all moving to the same location and therefore big sacrifices on behalf of the players.
    There are areas that are only minimally affected though, probably just means playing in the heat a bit!!

    Saw on the news that the NRL is considering relocating all teams to an empty mine accommodation village at Calliope (near Gladstone).

    You’d have to get them doing some form of work or online study. Run it like an army base.

    Maybe they are not bending to heard mentality and are just trying to keep their business open like 100,000 of other aussies …
    You will be whinging harder and complaining next year f the NRL has folded and does not exist …
    SC only works with players who play

    They are a worry if you plan to keep him in your 17 for more than 5 weeks. He won’t be getting over 55 often if he continues getting these types of minutes.

    Which two would you prioritize
    1. BJ to Staggs
    2. Blake to Yeo/Issako/Masters
    3. Knight/Musgrove to Flegler
    Context other CTW include Shiba, Watkins, Lomax, Willame, Williame

    Isaako in to play the titans is a solid shout

    1 and 2… and Isaako or Yeo.
    Isaako wins but small risk still that he has to exit for NZ for his Dad.

    Cook, Brailey
    Haas, Knight, Musgrove, Rudolph
    Arrow, Fifita, Lucy, Carrigan, Williams, Katoa
    Clearly, Walters
    Milford, Williams
    BJ, Simonson, Blake, Shibasaki, Williame, Watkins, Averillo,
    Ponga, Pap

    Where to begin! No idea who to trade out. Who do you think my 2 trade outs should be? Hold cook? BJ and Williams out?

    Thanks

    would of thought you need some backs to fix that CTW rabble
    think you need to trust cook OR make big bucks on him and turn him into a BB/Grant type… and bring in Staggs/Isaako/Mansauce type

    Bluegoose

    The bring in Grant or BB play probably better I think but if you keep Cook then consider Blake to Staggs (or Isaako) and J Williams to Horse via Carrigan.

    Agree, I’d trade Blake out ASAP. He’s never been a good SC player, not sure why everybody got excited about him during preseason.

    So the general consensus for this ctw drought is to bring in the likes of
    – Masters
    – Yeo
    – Isaako
    – Staggs

    Who’s priority?
    Masters and Yeo have high base but isaako staggs higher floors

    Leaning towards staggs yeo and grab masters in a few weeks

    Need to get rid of Burns & Blake asap but also I don’t have Flegler.
    Torn up between 2 trade options;

    TU – Musgrove & Burns – Fleg & Yeo

    TD – Burns & Blake – Staggs & Yeo
