7/703 with AFB to go. No danger to the leaders either 🙂

732 AFB Jazz and SJ to go. Thought I would be stuffed for this round actually looking half decent

New recruit tupou didn’t fire but 48 in B+P for a CTW with no attacking stats, I’ll take every day of the week. Especially when the upgrade is from someone like simonsson and his floor

Agree …. but also think he got quite ‘lucky’ in a sense with one or 2 runs/plays giving him alot of those points …..
Non owner but he’s score was looking pretty dire for a while there ( as we’re the roosters in general ) hence why I wasn’t so keen/ didn’t jump on

Priority for next week / rest of season?
TU: Hughes
TD: Crichton

Hughes second best HFB behind Cleary who either may not return or may not be as effective playing injured whereas Crichton is one of many good 2RFs so Hughes gets my vote.

H2H player only – down 33 this round. I have Lodge, opponent has SJ. I haven’t used my trades opponent has. 11 trades left. Win or lose won’t make much difference in my spot on the ladder.

Thinking of going Gutho to Ramien and Luai to SJ/Niko.

TU: do it (as I get another two player for round 18 carnage)
TD: hold trades as losing won’t matter much.

I would use 1 trade to bring in SJ which will give you the win as surely Lodge scores more than 33 and save the other trade which you can always do next week (Ramien’s BE is 74 so he might even be a little cheaper next week). If Round 18 carnage occurs which is likely not sure I would be trading out Gutho who at least is a live body despite his high BE.

I think Luai out is a good trade. I don’t think he will score as well without Cleary, and wasn’t scoring well with Cleary lately either. SJ or Niko with goal kicking are both solid upgrades.

I would be holding Gutho for R18 against Titans where he possibly also kicks goals. Gutho will play R18, he’s not in the 17 for Origin.

Maybe I could sell Cleary for SJ – get the win. Have another warm body for 18. Cause who knows what Cleary is doing.

Those AC joints in the shoulder are terrible, as Watson has said, don’t be surprised if Cleary doesn’t play again this year, possibly finals

I voted TD …. if the loss this week doesn’t matter anyway u probs better of holding trades for the run home and inevitable injuries, resting and suspensions…..
If u could do a sole trade to trade out luai > sj I’d say yes for sure ( as others have illuded to) but I’m guessing/ assuming the gutho trade is to fund it ?
Which could go either way …..

You would be correct. Can’t get SJ in unless I sell Gutho. I could sell Cleary for SJ and bank the cash and only make one trade.

Cleary>Niko. He has the best draw for H2H finals and will outscore SJ for rest of season imo

That is the other toss up. Also Niko will be playing Panthers without Cleary and Luai definitely and maybe other origin stars.

I don’t mind the play. I think I will do that! Thanks everyone for talking through the options!

Niko has 3×100+ scores this season. SJ has 3×100+ scores in 3 1/2 seasons

TU ~ probs going more with the crowd
TD ~ bit of a POD move (dwz could be a good play from 20 onwards ~ but not so convinced with panthers & rabbits in 80 & 19) I know niko same draw but feel he’s still got better base, js and chances of scoring attacking stats when not limited to mostly one side

Does anyone know when Papz is due back? Is Rd 19 confirmed? Or is it still uncertain?

I heard next round and that he may return from the bench

My gut feel is if he does return from the bench, he only misses the opening exchanges and comes in after around 20 minutes and plays out the game or something close to it depending on scoreline.

I’m ranked 1600 and managed to take the C off Cody walker before the game and as such think I’m way behind now. Expecting a red arrow. Have the C on SJ and also have ronaldo and AFB.

8 trades left. Would you use another trade to pick up another player?Thinking Burton to nikorima.

Would you make the trade or hold and take the red arrow this week?
