    Who would you trade out for Xerri out of Aekins from Penrith who currently isn’t getting a game or Allan from Souths who has the Fullback role at the moment but is still churning out poor scores.. leaning towards trading Aekins but just want a second opinion thanks.

    tough one, but probably Aekins for mine. doesn’t look like he’ll be coming back any time soon and Allan may hold that spot for a couple more weeks. we can only pray he gets more involved!

    Thanks Benny that’s the way I’ll go. Corey Allan has been trying to get some attacking stats from fullback but just hasn’t had much luck, Cody Walker back this week will do him some good and I hope they play Douehi over Tracey.

    Xerri has learnt to use his hands so hands on Xerri I say.

    Man if Gray’s pass was infront of him instead of behind! Geez what could have been another three try performance!

    I’d probably part ways with Aekins too. Although I got rid of Allan last week, at least he’s in a regularly scoring side.

    morning gents. long-ish post, but after some advice on my team and trades for this week with 170k itb:

    Cook (Smith)
    Fifi, Haas (Taupau, Tatola)
    Lolo, Murray, Jurbo (JFH, Surg, Staggs)
    Morgan (Brown)
    Ponga (DWalker)
    Bateman, Marsters, CNK, Nikora (Xerri, Herb, Allan)
    Teddy (RTS)

    thinking of keeping it simple with Surg to TKO or possible Morgan to Johnson, and then a possible second of Tatola/Allan for Aitken. any ideas appreciated smile

    I don’t mind the Surgess upgrade. Morgan to Johnson is solid too, and it might sound crazy but have you tossed up Milf as an option? Is looking good now he’s back at the reigns for the Broncs.

    Hope everyone’s weeks went well. After some suggestions on who I should move in my team:

    H2H Player – 15 Trades, $279,800 ITB

    Cook (Brittain)
    Fifita, AFB (Hass, Lane)
    Arrow, Jurbo, Taumalolo (Murray, Ofahengue, Young)
    Cleary (Cust)
    Ponga (Morgan)
    Ma’u, Nikora, CNK, Xerri (Oates, Burns, Herbert)
    Turbo (Teddy)

    A bit stuck on whether to prioritise backs or forwards so any help is appreciated.

    Backs are pretty solid so don’t worry.

    I would do some forward upgrades,
    1- Ofa —> TKO or JFH
    2- Cleary —> SJ

    Milf Hunter

    Do you think JFH remains at lock for the majority of the remaining season? I’m hesitant to pull the trigger with the constant shuffling at the Panthers where his points can be impacted from it.

    I would aim to bring in Bateman this week, if it was Jo>Bateman or Young>Bateman even at 2rf for a week is the go.

    HvH

    Is it over kill with a FRF/2rf pack of:

    Fifi/AFB – Hass/Tatola
    Lolo/Murray/Tapow – Surgess/CHN/Staggs

    to bring in TKO? Was looking at JFH but playing prop will wait a week before locking him in. I rather like what I saw from Kikau (running freely and looking dangerous, although I sold him rd12! But keen to bring back as his scoring potential is crazy!)

    Someone will go for Jurbo likely next week as should be at his cheapest, but would that be a decent forward pack?

    Fifi/Hass – AFB/Tapow
    Lolo/Jurbo/Murray – Kikau/Sam??

    If you’re strictly H2H, I don’t think there’s much point bringing in TKO, as he’s more of an option for overall players. I’d be looking to bring in players with higher upsides, and only bringing them in when you need to (meaning, try to conserve your trades for the run home as much as you possibly can).

    TurkeySnow
    Member

    Kikau a good shout though Flock?

    Team is:

    Cook – Mcinnes
    Fifi/HAss – AFB/Tatola
    Lolo/Murray/Tapow – Sam/CHN/Staggs
    Cleary – Dearden
    Ponga – Cwalker
    Maumalo/Nikora/BAteman/CNK – Xerri/Herbert/Allan
    Turbo – RTS

    Probably sell CHN, unless he is named to start this week (still holding out for hope! surely elliot goes he is terrible, but Pay’s illegitimate love child or something!) Or Tatola but I think would have to sell Allan as well. Dearden is also a concern moving forward.

    A Flock Of Sea Eagles

    Kikau’s a good option, and would be the better player to bring in. He’s certainly a player you’d want to bring in this week considering his price has bottomed out. Tatola has made his money and is the perfect week to move him on. If you’ve held CHN for this long, I’d continue to hold him, as he’s potentially an invaluable H2H POD if he returns.

    I’d look to nuff out Allan for a FRF/2RF by bringing down CHN around R16.

    TurkeySnow
    Member
    Gun

    yeah I am tempted to hold CHN due to his potential, Kikau in for Tatola, even though he will likely start isn’t that great and has done his job. I also like Graham as a POD option but will depend on funds. then like you said hold trades for HvH but my team will be pretty stacked.

    TS I would also hold CHN as a h2h option, but if he comes back and Pay plays him in the centres I think he is still a sell

    TurkeySnow
    Member
    Gun

    Yeah I agree, am set that anything bar 80min on an edge he is a sell, willing to risk him being named and playing a game for him to only lay 60min or so, who knows with Pay, just his attacking potential in that side is needed ASAP! Dogs are dreadful! Elliot how many turn overs does he make? Jackson/Tolman getting tackled on the 4th allowing no play for the 5th?

    17 trades left 120k itb

    Cook hodgo
    Fifi haas afb taupau
    Lolo jurbo murray tko lane young
    Cleary brown
    Walker milf
    Bateman nikora maumalo cnk To’o Herbert Simonsson
    Ponga rts

    Hodgo young and brown my trade out options, is it crazy to go hodgo to Turpin rather than Smith? Don’t think there’s any good downgrades for young or brown to fund smith, and Turpin could get the starting half gig now? Would probably only play him in 16 anyway… if money works out could possibly go young to staggs and hodgo to smith but I think I’ll be short.

    any trade suggestions fellas

    I feel staggs was last week, not worth this week after his rise. Could just go down to the hok who played for roosters the other day?

    Is Staggs the only “cheapie” (not that cheap anymore) who is safe to be playing rd 16?

    I need to downgrade someone to a cheaper rd 16 player, so I can upgrade another player to a gun this week. I don’t see many safe options.

    Host is an option around a similar price.

    Are you forced to make the trade this week, or can you hold off until R16? If you’re forced to, I’d be looking to take the gamble on someone who you’ll believe will come in for that round only (the likes of Kerr or Earl).

    Yes I’m thinking of holding off and doing no trades this week instead. I kind of want C Smith though. But if we wait one more week, it’s the super 5 trades next right?

    Yep…and CS will have a BE of around 68 after this week, so it’s not like he is going to be out of reach the week after
