Got a TA LBA in the last two minutes after switching to fullback for last five. Looked a lot better in attack there, wouldn’t be surprised to see him shifted back there, Crichton looks knackered and couldn’t add anything in terms of sweeping plays late in sets

6/588 C Cleary. Glad Cleary came home strong cos I really wanted to chuck the C on Luai or Kikau but talked myself out of it!

Cleary or Luai for VC?

Logic dictates Cleary so I go Luai.
Of course Laluai goes massive.

I am still not sure Luai has gone large enough to make the loophole an obvious play anyway. Saab stunk it up, and Broncs playing Storm (leading to some uncertainty about many cheapies) means I think the tipping point for looping this week is probably closer to 150

If rikki scores 54 (dropped player) Luai updates to 132 and an ae of Saab
Then Teddy needs to score 85 to match points

Interested to know if you are looping. I did the same with Luai, but with so much trash in NPR’s that could all score sub 30, just not convinced the loop is a goer???

3/246 C Cleary

The good:
– solid enough captain score (especially given his 1st half). A late try to Capes- pheww! Nice dividend from
Schuster.. Selling 6-pack Saab (to Olam) 2mins before lockout feels like a win.

The bad:
– Staines struggled again (shame he didn’t get the FB job over Critter). A worry that plenty out could be riding Pappy as C to a 100+ V’s Broncs.

The ugly:
– fell 9K short of planned trade to get To’o. Rikki or Tino were only options in the end so had to pass. It was a painful deathride tonight!!!

Anyone concerned that Hynes has moved onto the bench for Storm? I have C on Papy and concerned he goes off early.

Smoothy dropped out so Hynes in as he has more impact and versatility
I dont see him as a threat to Papi………………………..yet

Ok so Capewell scored 47 with a try?

So he would’ve scored 30points in 64 minutes of footy without the try against a terrible Manly team.

Could soon be on the chopping block…

Most of the attack went down the left

That’s what some genius said a day before he scored 95. He’ll update in the 50s which leaves him with 68,36,95,47+ to average in the 60s…. he’ll bounce around a bit but attacking stats will always be there for him in that side. He’s a sure thing in a chaotic CTW line

Creighton out of his depth at FLB was lost and added nothing in attack. Looked like he had know idea of when inject himself into the play. Only runs kick returns and a couple of hit-ups Staines looks clearly the better option at FLB or Burton at FLB. Unfortunately I have both Staines & Creighton not enough cash for Too’
Panthers are smashing sides solely on the basis of left side attack..

i think pennies get back a couple of wingers this week. Could see staines go to fullback, momo to wing if they end up with naden or just play jennings on the wing.

if kenny is out maybe may to hooker, critter back to left centre and burton the no.14, they have plenty of back up and options to do as they please

Agree. It’s going to be a difficult few days until next TLT for owners of most of the Penrith backline. Critter was awful at FB, but surely has enough credit points to stay in the team, while Staines either plays FB or gets dropped. Burton fitted like a glove, so he stays in, somewhere.

There is no reason to change that side coming off that scoreline. Critter got better as the game went on and will be better for the run. If anything they might swap Staines into fullback a bit earlier as he showed he could carve up tired edge defenders.

Cleary mentioned about organising the defensive line and how underrated edwards is in that regard.

Perhaps Crichton is preferred at FB as he is better than Staines in that area, and there attack is humming

Luai definitely looks like a keeper this year. Glad I took him round 1. Gives that origin cover and looks to have so much confidence.

Could be the year walker/luai are the top choices over Munster/walker for the first time in a while
