    Overall player. After trading Tatola to TKO, have 15 trades left and 7 players for round 16. Thoughts on the second trade:

    TU: Sivo to Xerri
    TD: Allan to Aitken
    Comment: hold trade

    Cheers!

    Personally I wouldn’t sell Sivo & I sold Allan myself this week. Probs didn’t answer your question but I think your too late for Xerri & I’ve put Aitken in the never again basket. Good luck

    I’d find another option to trade Allan to, as a dragons fan Aitken was the weakest link in a team that included Host and might not even play 16

    Depends if you see xerri as a Keeper. He is 500k but has a negative be, it’s now or never and plays round 16

    Wait a week or two and you could have Gutho for not much more than Allan.

    Who to sell for TKO;
    Surgess
    Tolman
    CHN
    At the moment that’s my order as I’m still hopeful CNH will return to the starting side & be a POD. But I’ve changed my mind a dozen times tonight. HELP!

    Haha I think you need to sell CHN. Even if he does get the starting gig he will almost definitely be sharing minutes with RFM or Martin potentially

    Very good point Kane. Thinking about it logically, they’ll probably all be sold over the coming weeks & CHN will probs loose the most cash. Thanks

    I am in the same belief! CHN returns from his short exchnage in reggies to come out and score a double, set up a try and lb! Ha who knows. I am watching this week to see, If he comes off the bench and scores 40 he looses 21K, scored 32 (30min), 78 in 54min rd1 and 2. If then he doesnt get the starting spot or look like he will get decent min next week then I will happily accept defeat and sell. But also gives me a second look at graham (sharks). I feel he could be a… Read more »

    Def hold, plays 16 & very consistent CTW (& will def benefit from SJ returning)

    If there were 5-6 ctw killing it I could see some reasoning to consider selling him to create a pod.

    But I’d struggle to name 4 ctw you’d want instead.

    If SJ is in you play Nikora.

    74av with SJ inside – 65, 92, 56, 80, 77
    vs
    55av with Flanno jr – 62, 62, 51, 51, 63, 41

    Who is better in the long run as a keeper out of TKO and Matterson if you can only have one?

    Matterson.

    Obviously no certainty that he plays rd 16 but I can see him scoring more over the rest of the year even if he doesn’t play.

    Looking at a final downgrade to get in CS9 before Fainu gets back to basement price.
    Staggs is tempting but thinking about Carrigan or (gasp) Aubo
    Carrigan should see big minutes in 16 with the entire broncos pack seemingly playing origin and likely then nuff out, make more money from the trade.
    Aubo is cheap, will play 80 in 16 and is this option every year.
    Am I being a bit cute or is there merit in either option?

    I’m interested in all 3 now. Not that that’s any help. For what it’s worth I don’t mind the point you make about Carrigan just freeing up more cash. Could become an AE though, he’s been hovering around the 21 with a few starts here and there hasn’t he?

    Aubo’s averaging 27 points in 75 minutes over his last five games. Just no.

    So a clear question of the week has been:

    Which 2/3 of nikora, Xerri, cnk and Gutho.

    I’m sure we will see plenty of it tomorrow but good luck with it everyone! Some of us surely get it right!

    If I’m spending 500k on Xerri, you bet your arse I’m playing him.

    Xerri, Nikora, CNK, Gutho in that order for me.

    Xerri hitting form with SJ back inside him is making me moist.

    Xerri is playing left centre this game, not right centre. But just as excited to have Graham play inside him.

    I’m ranked inside the top 200, and also in the pointy end of a $5k H2H cashie.

    21 trades left, $152k ITB

    Cook, Brittain
    Fifita, Haas, Tapau, Tatola
    Jurbo, Lolo, Murray, Arrow, Burgess Carty
    Cleary, Deardon
    Ponga, Moylan
    Bateman, CNK, Nikora, Mau, Marsters, Simmonson, Too
    Teddy, RTS

    Got stung last week with Ponga forcing a trade to Moylan who I’ll have to carry for a bit longer, that trade has kind of de-railed me a little.

    Thinking this week just the one trade: Tatola > TKO

    Anything else stand out for a potential second trade, or hold?

    Im holding Carty this week and out next.
    Low BE and starting in the second row against the Warriors.
    Also no Hipgreave (the pleb) to steal minutes either.

    Still in the 19. John Morris talked up his chances of playing tomorrow, but has no problem keeping him out a week earlier. If I had to put money on it, i’d back him to play but lucky Sharks play first game this week, so we will find out then.

    I’m sure John Morris knows better than me but to be honest I’d leave him out for now, he’s always had little niggling injuries and young Flanno is playing really well and they’re winning games, give SJ this week then the bye to make sure he’s 100%
