Wow, I hope Leniu is back next week. I’m gonna need him I think. Really paying the price for burning trades early

Garrick will go large at fullback in one of the remaining games. Play Dogs and Cows final 2 games.

I think this year has been particularly bad for injuries and suspensions. I’m just glad I didn’t bother nuffing this year (will still have only 15 for next round).

i was never going to nuff this year after what happened last year. Deliberately held players like Brailey and RJames for depth, even though I don’t play them. Had 5 NPRs this week,and 3 trades left

Id love to say i deliberately held players like brailey & james … but thatd be a lie !
I held them out of necessity/ having higher priority issues (or tbh looking back on it playersbi thought were in tjose categories) hindsight may say otherwise – but im hoping they can repay the faith now if need be

My thinking was why trade them? Not worth any value. I was happy having to play Staines a few weeks, might of cost me 100 points. I will make that back easily with being able to keep a full 17 of guns til the end

As a H2H player I try to have 6 trades left for finals. I usually halve my overall ranking in the last 4 rounds of the season and I pass a number who have maxed out on their trades. I also try and ensure I have a full squad of 25 by not nuffing, although I usually find I have one nuff in my squad by the end of the year. This year I wasn’t able to quite get there with my target of 6 trades for the last 4 weeks. If a player has a reported 2 week injury… Read more »

The trolls are obviously out & about with their TD but totally agree Sally…. Tbh iv never actually really focused on h2h too much since when I 1st started playing way back when. I had some time off and came back and got a keyring then stopped again for a while … came back last yr after a few off and man was it different and a crazy year to come back. Agree though ~ as u said for ‘new players’ it was hard cos for me too a big adjustment to make after having pretty much max trades last… Read more »

Thanks BG. Happy to provide some sort of positive contribution to the site by posting the team list changes and magic number each week.

Overall and H2H are massively different games. I’d love to have a crack at overall one year if they allow you to play 2 teams. Good luck in your quest to climb the rankings in the last 3 weeks.

1644 C Turbo. My highest ever score.
Hoping Pangai and AJ are back next week to make up my 17 with Turbo and Matto gone

1282 C Ponga
Let us never speak of this again… 😛

Will be mulling up whether to use my last trade for a 2RF…

or take the AE at 2RF til Angus is back and bring in a FB or 5/8 (if Turbo is 3 weeks…)

Kudos for having the guts to captain Ponga, especially when you’re positioned at the pointy end.

Hard luck mate. At least you didn’t die wondering. Should be plenty of opportunities to make up ground with Turbo out. Captain choice will be crucial for the last few weeks.

Cheers Hoffa and DCE…
I think watching the knights game was worse than the Sea Eagles… ha ha!

No DPP half. 1 trade
288K ITB so short of DCE to Cleary

Watson / Brailey
Haas AFB / TKO James
Ice Fifi Matto / Angus Tohu Palasia
Hughes / S Walker
Cody / Doueihi
Garrick Tupou Olam Nofo / Hynes Laurie Burbo
Turbo / Ponga

I can either go Matto to any high ceiling gun 2RF (Murray or Curran)
or
trade around Turbo and Hughes if news is grim there (taking an AE at 2RF). Sounds like Turbo may play though….

Well that narrows it down to 3 for the sc season ? ( at least for now)
Tohu, Matto & CHN all gone for the season ~ tough run for 2rf … hopefully have some cover otherwise it’s gotta be at least 1 if not 2 of them? Pending cover in other positions aswell

1430/C Turbo, no trades, rank 91. Should be able to field a decent 17 next week. C choice will be crucial, VC loop back on the table as well

Good work Hoffa! Keep up the good fight!

I would have been the virtually the same score without that bad captaincy gamble. You have been disciplined and it Turbo is out it might help your cause with the captaincy split this week.

Just don’t go Ponga!… he seemed to sit R side today and was very passive . Not sure if carrying minor injury or crazy coaching. Knights nearly lost because they didn’t use him enough…
