    Depends on how many trades you have, Kerr and maumolo you would keep, tavega and manu you may need to trade back out

    Are all Turbo owners captaining him? I’m typically the sort of risk averse player that always leaves it on my highest averaging forward, which in this case is Lolo.

    Because of the order of the games, I’m going VC Lolo and C on Turbo… feels like Tommy could sleepwalk his way into 60 points at this point!

    really hard not to C someone who is avg 125 if we look at it in minutes , 1.5+ppm . I love a risk though but not sure this one is a smart one

    Solid side, a lot of simialrities to mine, I would hold too solid base

    Geez i think there will be a few Draw’s after round 18 lol

    So thinking Hass over Mcinnes as one reserve and Nikora (chance of attacking stats) over Bateman, Eels allow 3rd least pts to right 2rf, compared to dogs 5th highest.

    Playing both AFB and Tapow as feel they will play bigger min with Waddell cover to spell Jurbo (backing up), Finu struggling to play 80min at hok, and Turbo (elliot cover).

    Kikau in as he has a pretty decent av against warriors and Maloney will see most of the possession

    So really Bateman or Nikora?

    Other CTW are: Xerri, Latrell and Maumalo

    Mcinness vs cows who give away pts to hooker’s, similar to macca style and macca scored for a 66 , i’m playing him

    I was but consensus on the forum is don’t leave out Hass or Bateman, I see more upside in Nikora this week with match up!

    OnTheBus

    Gun

    i don’t think he is a must have this week, under 60 is a possibility so someone like maumalo/xerri can outscore him imo. These call’s are all touch and go , nikora could score standard also .
    GO with the gut

    EDIT i wouldnt be leaving haas out

    TurkeySnow
    Member
    Gun

    Yeah I feel nikora could score similar to McInnes with an attacking stat, dragons still all over the place.

    Hass could score same as both without attacking stats I guess,

    Maumalo/xerri/latrell just have that ability to crack 100

    I just feel if they are ahead jurbo and turbo will be given an early shower with Waddell and Elliot as cover so more min for tapow and afb.

    Any chance Papy outscores RTS over the next 2 weeks?

    RTS seems to have the better draw of Panthers and Knights, v Papy Roosters and Dragons so I guess the popular opinion will be no.

    as a paper boy I wont be playing him this week

    He would have to be a serious consideration imo, is playing the roosters the only draw back?

    hughes to 5/8 though ?? or fo they bring in Walter’s? Either way papy has played centre and wing hasn’t he? i haven’t followed storm much but there are 2 games where he has 20 tackles so no way thats from the back..

    No munster Chambers JAC mean’s he play’s back 3 and just about odd’s on for round 17 too if chambers gets a rest , one would think he is in front of earl, kata and co surely

    i need to see who he came on for for 20 mins , those tackles seem like forwards even.. anyone out there know?

    Something i’m now looking at , part of me think’s he can keep that fullback spot and hughes to no.7 .
    He or RTS look 2-3 games then upgrade to ted but Papy has that X factor .

    Yeah, that would be the plan… I’m thinking of burning 2 with Teddy-RTS-Teddy anyway, but the storm in me really wants the Papy POD factor!

    Reports today that Cleary could be back ahead of schedule… aiming to be back for Origin 3. (Sorry, no source)… That might effect your Cleary trade?

    Does anyone know how much money a player loses for every point short of their BE? The NRLSCStats calc is broken (it has Matterson making money despite being 30 points short of his BE).

    mato was project to get 76 BE 61 – 15 points to equal +10,600 so 10600/15=706.66
    currently 47 so thats -14 points

    14×706.66=9893.33

    $750 was posted a few weeks back. And Matto missed his BE by 14, it was 61.
