Team News, Scores & Chat – Round 4

Happy Bad Friday everyone

This weekend I have solicited some help from a dear friend, the Easter Bunny (he’s actually a very bad bunny), and we have one target in mind.

He’s magic trick will be to turn David Fifita into Andrew Fifita. Haha – get it?

Yours in despair,

How did Teddy land on only 74pts?

Just adding up the stats from the game

  • 21 runs: 21-42pts
  • 2 LB: 20pts
  • 1 LBA: 8pts
  • 1 TA: 12 pts
  • 1 T: 17pts
  • 5 TB: 10pts
  • 5 TK: 5pts
  • 3 ERR: -3pts
  • 1 PEN: -2pts

So his score should have finished somewhere between 88 to 109?

How does he end up being 14 points below this range? (even worse considering he made 250+ metres so most of those runs would be 2pts not 1pt)

How can their stats be so wildly different between nrl and fox?

Like you can understand subjective things like TA/TC being different from one to the other, but how can he have 4 less runs and 2 less tackles etc, like those things aren’t subjective lol

NRL i believe counts runs where they do run but dont play the ball? or they may count runs where its happened off a linebreak of another player who passes into someone to score. Like how Paps scored all his tries the other night.

Tackles are solely because of 3rd man in. NRL counts them where as Fox doesn’t

Cheers,

How bizarre that a player could score an extra 40pts or so based on different view of the stats between nrl/fox, you’d think they’d communicate to have their data sets as close as possible

Matto > Cricthon
Tupouiau > Paulo

Good trades or sideways? I did want to hold Matto but being last game of week again not going to take the risk of him being a late out.

I like Matto out. I would prioritise Dfif if you dont have him – if you do, go Crichton.

2nd trade I understand but im not sure its a priority. Sitili is playable all the way until Cordner comes back imo and the 4 is only in his rolling avg for 2 weeks.

Based on your logic I think matto to Angus is a good trade gun for gun. Assuming you have no other issues 2nd trade is solid as well

Wasted chance to jump up from 10k with c papy
1307 & small red arrow down 100 odd places

Would it be stupid to go teddy to paps and keep latrell. I’d make 100k rather then have to spend 150k and the bunnies next few games look like good chances for latrell to go big. Plus with rookie halves and hooker, teddys points may potentially drop? Would love to hear your opinions boys

Wouldn’t do it. If your gut says Latrell could go big with the draw, I’d just stick with Teddy/latrell and deathride paps every week

This is correct. Teddy had a Try disallowed, a TA disallowed, and also blew another TA on a break where he went himself instead of setting up Crichton. Honestly couldve easily gone 120-150…

Got laughed at for suggesting this trade last week. Alas I pulled the trigger.

Trades v points v cash raise

Teddy BE153
Papy BE-1
Latrell BE66

Hard to look past the upcoming rise with Papy
Latrell’s draw is good
Teddy could be the one to go big this coming round.

Go with your gut – never die wondering

Is a big dilemma , but can see papy and Ted being the two keeper flbs this year, with Ponga being the only threat and latrell will be definitely be up there, guess it comes down to as you said weighing up the cost benefit and trades as trades will become so important between rounds 17-25

Picking two of the no.1, no.3 and no.9 highest averaging players. If anything Teddy will have more touches and playmaking responsibility.

Who knows tbh, and only time will tell, but it’s not the % play. However it wasn’t the % play last week either and look what happened.
But I also remember commandments about not selling guns and not chasing last weeks points.
Confusing times 🙂

Have a look at Wilton, Condon, Topine. All look like potential options. Bunty and Musgrove looked fantastic on the weekend.

So a question on Saab. Is it possible for a player to become cheaper then a cheapie? As in can his price drop below 173,700?

Season average of 16 and looks absolutely horrible in real life as well.

No players can’t drop below basement price. He looks terrible unfortunately unless you got a big cash reserve there’s not many options to upgrade him to.

I was just curious, I can trade him up to Fergo or Kellie who are the ones I’m interested in. The other trade I’m looking at is Staines to Tohu which also gets Capewell down to CTW.

I would trade Saab 100x before I traded Staines. At least Staines plays in a good team and can fall over anytime.

I was originally trying to go Saab & Capewell to To’o & another CTW but was just short of anyone I really wanted, would have had to drop my expectation and go with two 450k wingers which I didn’t want. Figured I can just move Niu & Capewell for two strong wingers so now CTW sits, B.moz/To’o/Fergo/Laurie-Saab/Fusi/Simmo.
