    5 trades and the decision to make regarding how many Rd 16 players do I actually want for the run home? Do I bring in a Rd 16 player over Bateman for example or do I stack up for the big run from 16 onwards?

    Some big decisions this week for my team.

    I didn’t bring in turbo this week because he dosent play round 16, lost me a lot of points. looks like most guys will have Haas and Latrell for round 16, prolly want atleast 12/13 guys for 16 now

    no guarantee that Latrell plays 16. if he shows a big attitude improvement in round 15 and/or there’s any injuries he might be back

    him being dropped is supposed to be a wake-up call – it’s up to him as to how long that lasts

    NSW centre curse will continue so expect them both to change in Game 3.

    No dickheads and new centres every game, that’s Freddy’s policy.

    Matto looks like he wont make it , crighton at 475k will be tempting seem to be my top 2 . maybe a centre might be my 3rd and final trade. cant see myself using all 5 trades but the trade addiction is real so time will tell

    I wouldn’t even entertain bringing in Crichton, at the moment. 48-point average over his last five games, and doesn’t even look threatening, seems like it would be just a waste of a trade.

    he is running at Brooks Momo though so a ton could be on the cards…….. im almost prepared to risk it as he wont lose any money imo.

    Hopefully, I’ll crack the top-20. Top-30 at worst. Still owed about 20-30 points in updates.

    I think Chrichton has potential to hit form on the run home once Roosters get their full squad back. Should hit bottom dollar over next few weeks and may play 16. He’s a watch for mine.

    Latrell should definitely be left until R16. G3 candidate and will play the Storm in R15 with a high BE.

    Planned trades so far will be arrow-tko, cnk-rts, ????-nuff to create funds for Rd 16 afb-matto, deardon-Sj

    These will change 400 times before lockout ends and many more after

    Milne (Storm) and Anderson (Bulldogs) are the most versatile and least likely to play any football, at basement price.

    As for nuffs that play the bye, maybe Kerr, maybe Earl could play.

    Albert Hopoate (ACL injury) gives you a non-playing CTW.

    Any word on Haas’ injury? How many weeks is it worth holding? Assume he will miss 16

    A Flock Of Sea Eagles

    The Broncos’ R16 game is exactly three weeks from today. Unless it’s a significant hamstring strain, he should be okay to play after the rep round, in R15 (two weeks from now).

    He’s a keeper too, so only a long term/season-ending injury would warrant a trade.

    he is challenging, so it’s 3 game suspension if he loses and is found guilty. 2 x NRL plus the international.

    I was reading the SMH article stating
    Fifita landed in hot water for his crusher tackle on Canberra’s Ryan Sutton, but reached out to top silk Nick Ghabar to argue his case.

    The Sharks superstar will plead guilty to the charge, but seek a downgrade from a grade two to a grade one, which would mean escaping a ban.

    i think it’s just the language used which is confusing. challenging the grading… is that the same as challenging the charge or different ? that’s where the confusion has come from, i believe

    Probably spot on Monty. Guess we’ll know by Sunday.
    Either way, I don’t have enough trades left to get him back in although my only dead wood is “cough” Hiroti”cough” and Flegler.
    Hiroti becomes POD this week and Flegler gets culled after he scores a double in R16.

    Challenging the charge = go all out to be exonerated.
    Challenging the grading = downgrade severity (and potential penalty) of charge.

    Either way, a pain in the a*** for owners.
