    May 28 looking more and more like a legitimate resumption of the competition.

    On a side note, go and get your flu shots for winter.

    NRL to return on May 28.

    Can we petition to get more trades for this round? Does anyone know when a revised draw is released?

    Nrl looking to release the revised draw by the end of next week. At the moment we are looking at 17-20 rounds to be played out until the end of September. Finals will be played during October with the grand final likely to be scheduled on November 1st. State of Origin likely to take place 2 weeks later and played over 3-4 weeks so should have some footy till December. Hopefully SC, Fantasy & DT are kind with extra trades and release information shortly after the revised draw. I need an extra trade so I can get my boy Watson… Read more »

    Watson is tempting but he is 600k or so isn’t he? Who are u going to punt to create the freight?

    As a 80/90s nba fanatic it’s amazing to see what went on behind the scenes.

    In Rd 2 I had saved both of my trades and my team is in need of more then 2 trades for Rd 3 but honestly, I would prefer if the trades remained at just 2.

    Just wondering if anyone else feels the same?

    TU: Stay at 2 trades for Rd 3
    TD: 4-6 trades for Rd 3

    I’d prefer the extra trades only because I have guys that are in the team because they were going to get a bunch of games before someone came back from injury and now they might not even get a single price rise. Also guys that were chosen specifically for their start to the season (can cop these ones on the chin though).

    But I can see your point as well. If we get 6 trades almost everyone will bring in a lot of the same players.

    Haven’t even looked at my side since COVID-19 shut down. Saved both trades rd1-2 but probably would be happy with 6 trade week, even though I didn’t start with Watkins etc who are likely out.
    – Watson could be a great trade in
    – Flegler looks like a no go now
    – JWilliams still needs to be likely sold!
    – Burns, unless Bennett changes his mind needs to go

    But who knows what happens

    I prefer trades because i bought some players relying on information about other players, and because some have now had enough time to recover from injury.

    e.g. I wouldnt have started with Yeo if capewell was fit

    I do understand where you are coming from MR Perfect, but say everyone who has those players gets a free trade, when is it too many? – Tapine/Horse – Bateman – Yeo/Kikau/JFH – Capwell – Mccinnes – Fui – Watkins – Flegler/Carrigan – Jo/Lodge – Walters – Brooks/Grant – JTB/Katoa – Tevega/Paasi Then implications if* players don’t agree? Like If all the stories ie Boyd are true? does that make Coates a starter? (Word was he was ahead before groin aggravation) Then How many weeks are the players preparing for before their return? Does someone like Api who was doing… Read more »

    I think we should get maybe 4 or 5 trades, so treat it like the super trade week, so you can fix some issues but not completely redo their team. Since no Origin mid-season, we don’t get the super trade week later. My point of view is that without adding extra trades you are punishing the smart people who did a bunch of research in pre-season to find hidden gems, but who are now bad buys due to various factors (mostly injury returns). You may say this is just bad luck, and it is to a certain degree, but leaves… Read more »

    Circumstances of the competition have changed, the game must allow us to rectify for those changes.

    With a revised draw, origin at the end of the regular season, possibly fewer games played, Calum Watkins situation, SC teams that factored in injured players not returning enabling price rises on cheapies…the list is long to support a clean start to SC imo.
    I got off to a decent start but I am a supporter of the idea to start the SC fresh with all the new information on the table is the only way it can be fair.

    Personally not a supporter of a fresh start, as the first 2 rds are counting towards the NRL 2020 season. I honestly believe 4 trades is the way. I would prefer to settle for 2 but I think between the argument for 2-6 trades, fair would be to meet at 4 trades and just like the NRL with the exception of a few changes, we should just continue on with the season, as it was, before the season was put on hold. It just feels unfair for all this who put in all the pre season research and find them… Read more »

    4 trades and retaining early round scores for mine. That bit of compensation is enough.

    What about those that put the effort in and had a great start but are now in a terrible position, wouldn’t it be unfair to them though? Any teams with players like Fuimaono, kennedy, watkins, guler, flegler, katoa, jtb, walters and horse are now all pretty irrelevant picks/ all will be impacted. Some wont make the 17 so wont make any money, others will lose there starting spot and not be playable when they were before. All these should of made decent coin, but now your wasting the trades to get them out without the benefit. I am sure there… Read more »

    Hey Guys, I keep seeing a lot in the media with the debate still going on competition points. There was a recent chat with Ikin about making the points for a win going forward worth more. Not to open that particular can of worms, but has anyone seen much chat on suspensions? The way I see it those suspensions for 1, 2, 3 weeks etc are now far more significant. Personally I think they should stand e.g. TPJ’s dog shot, but he got 4 weeks for that which will equal 1/4 of the season suspended. Pretty harsh penalty considering most… Read more »

    Even Paul Kent pointed out that isolation is getting to Ikin. At this point the actual length of the season is still being sorted out and we still could possibly have more then 20 games to play. Currently channel Nine want 17 games including the 2 already played but fox want as close to a full length season as possible. I hope Foxtel get their way and we get close to a full season as possible, so that we can avoid any issues such as – suspensions, 2 pts being worth more now etc.

    With the rooster’s complaining about 0-2 start and restarting the comp , what are thoughts of having a table where you get a bonus pt for winning 13+ ? This would give the better team’s an incentive to claw back up the ladder and the weaker team’s a chance to aim up and not give them extra pts. I think panthers worked hard for those 2 pts against the roosters but i also see how the rooster’s approach the season. With a shortened season i believe this would give the better team’s who start slow a reason to come out… Read more »

    Every year the top 8 at the halfway point of the season is the top 8 at the end of the year with the exception of maybe one team dropping out. It’s only 2 games. A team like the roosters should be able to make up the gap. If they don’t it means they aren’t good enough.

    Completely wiping the first 2 rounds would be ridiculous. Look at the Knights. They’ve lost their hooker and won’t have Ponga for the first 2 weeks when the season restarts.

    Think it was catfish who said it on the last page. Why should a team be rewarded for not respecting their opposition. Those early wins are worth more but we also play a top 8 system, the Broncos made it to the final’s last year with a losing record. If they’re good enough they’ll make the 8.

    For me its a no, you have 2 teams both win 10 games, one scores 30 points and the other scores 20 or worse one team wins 10 games for 20 points but is knocked out of the 8 by a team that wins 7 games for 21 points.

    I am for more trades in the first round back. Just too much has changed, for all we know 6 key players in any of our teams may have had the corona virus and will not be fit to play for 2 years. How many players will come back chubby and slow or get hurt in the pre game training or be replaced dropped suspended for being a dumb Fox or dopey cleary ? You could almost justify saying just start again and pick a full new squad – I wouldn’t want to go that far but do see a… Read more »
