Who’s best for the run home?

TU: Smithers
TD: AFB

Probably because it’s more important to have a quality backup hooker.

depends when you’re planning on running out of trades
if you have CS9, are you playing him every week with an R ? If not. that’s 600k / a lot of salary cap sitting there as an insurance policy

and conversely, if you run Cook and Smith; exhaust your trades and Cook gets injured, that’s 700k that is going to be sitting there not scoring points each week

Both are ranked at no. 2 for their positions . I am positive there would be others in your squad not ranked as high

Out – AFB and Gutho

Mainly for overall
TU or TD

AFB and Gutho are very much worth holding as your next in FRF and CTW players. You’d struggle to find better at their positions and it certainly isn’t worth trading them to them find a replacement next man in.

Rinsing trades, this one.

From Stilesy this morning – Michael Morgan has been in some doubt during the week after sustaining a minor shoulder injury in Origin II, however Coach Green has rested him during the week and says he should be available to play with no other changes expected

ESPN: “Is this the grubbiest NRL act ever?”

Honestly, McGuire on Munster was much worse – he actually got a hold of the eye-lid and gave it a stretch.

George was bad but boy they carry on when it’s a pom and not one of Queensland’s finest. I absolutely hate the C-word (and we say it almost every week around here) but CONSISTENCY, please!

I think the problem for George is that it was a Thursday TV game and the camera picked the incident up perfectly. Also his hands had no reason to be there, he wasn’t the main tackler, I do agree McGuire was worse, but neither were good, and with this being a hot topic at the moment George will get punished more.

Am i crazy for holding lane for my back up front or second row? i’m thinking of turning him into kikau or maybe wade graham, you think graham will play 80 minutes?
got fifita, taupow and haas in front row so don’t really need an extra player.
lolo, jurbo, murray, matto and nikora in second row, can move nikora to ctw for kikau or graham.currently last reserve of tevaga, or other option is save trade.

3 in FRF is ample. 4th slot can be a FRF / 2RF nuff (i.e. Kerr) which you can flip someone up if your 2 starting FRFs go down at the same time. Most would have a TKO, Kapow, Surgess, Klem, JFH sitting as a bench 2RF for this purpose.

I think this is the best way to set up the pack for the run home. 4 FRFs is a waste of cap in my opinion.

Just wanted to rant at how pissed I am with myself with not deciding to sell Cook when he was over 800k. To all that were calling me delusional in suggesting Cook to Smith/Mciness then get him back rd 18, a big F(*& you. Hindsight is such a beautiful thing but f*&( me it will cost me points for rd 16 and a shit load of money.

Don’t expect anymore advise then.

Cost you no money either. Also wouldn’t cost you points in R16 if you still traded in the same number of players that play R16. Sounds like you’re more upset about the trades you did make, rather than the ones you didn’t.

How did it not cost me money? Do you not understand what sell high, buy low is? The bloke is going to drop potentially lower than $600k after next week. That’ll be close to $250k that I could have saved had I made the trade in rd 13. I am upset I saved my trade.

i made the call and they went massive that week , everyone thought i was crazy .
it was the wrong decision for that week , it’s good to get others thoughts but you make your own choice. Sometimes they work sometimes they don’t .

Cook is a keeper if you still have him them no point trading out now, to me that decisoin had to be made round 12 , i made it round 11 and copped it but it was my decision .

I asked about selling Cook this week and was told the same thing by 90% of people. I wouldn’t expect anything less either, he is by far the best hooker in SC and would burn me if he Pumped out a big score. But I knew it was the right choice for me so traded him out anyway. He had a huge BE, was always going to struggle with the short turnaround and is likely to miss the next 2 rounds. Sometimes you’ve just got to go with your your gut Instead if trying to justify your trade.

You can say this all in hindsight but if Walker scores when Cook put him through its a 80+ score and we don’t have this conversation. He was always going to lose money if that’s peoples main points. What he still does though is provide consistent opportunity for top points in his position.

I didn’t see the game (was at work so just watched the highlights) but how was that a 30+point play for Cook?

Cook is due a few updates imo. NRL.com has him on a 66 at the minute.

Either way a 20+ point TA/LBA play that would also give Souths momentum as they wouldve took the lead at HT couldve sparked a bigger score. Still a 70+ score is decent. If you sold Cook to fund 2 other necessary trades it was viable. Came with risk that Cook could go 100+ but he didn’t and its a small win for those that sold.

Exactly the same for me. I think i responded last night to Paddy who was feeling bad about his trades by saying i felt worse by trading cook (& tedesco). I copped some light ribbing (fair enough), but for my team and the position i was in i was set on doing it.

Here comes the hero. Yeah because you predicted an injury from him right? The thing is with this page is you all think the logical answer is ALWAYS correct. If a person here suggests a left wing idea he gets scrutinised and is labelled an idiot. Sometimes thinking out of the box is the answer? Backing my gut is what I will do here on in.

You can rant about yourself making the wrong call/following other people’s advice all you want, but to say ‘stuff you’ to everyone who helped you out is a bit out of line. Listen to other people, make your own calls. Do you blame someone else for mistakes you make at work? You learn from it and learn to trust our own instinct. I’m selling Cook this week to Fainu, and I’m sticking with it against popular opinion. Why? Because I (and only I) believe that it offers a potential $150k savings over the next few weeks which would allow me… Read more »
