    Who are the best HFB options this year in order? DCE, SJ, Cleary, Moses, Pearce (anyone else)

    Nah I don’t see one good score and think gun. DCE only got 19 in base. Staying away if he doesn’t have the goalkicking.

    IMO Moses cleary SJ DCE Pearce Pearce not in the same league IMO but could be a good pod to play on matchups DCE would be close to 1st if he had the goal kicking SJ if fit and running the ball every week is the number 1 but atm we don’t know which weeks he wants to run and it may depend on the gameplan week to week Cleary is the safest because of his base Moses is my pick he is slightly podish has a good run and a dual 5/8 if needed. Also has the goal-kicking which… Read more »

    Mikaele –> Nuff, RTS –> TTurbo. Pretty straight forward this week, I’ll worry about Nikora & Marsters next week.

    IMO RTS-turbo should still be done
    RTS turbo I think you should wait for a week as teddy high BE and RTS won’t have a big Be either

    Warriors vs sharks
    Roosters vs knights

    Tough call but I think I’ll bring Ted in and be done with it. Rts seems to yoyo at the moment.

    I am holding RTS another week, Yes Teddy has Knights and scored 90 against them in rd11. Although Knights beat them, even after loosing Ponga who hopefully is back this week. I think Knights after 2 losses – Warriors and Dogs, should be up for the challenge.

    RTS against a shraks side, who can put it together, but missing Dugan/Moylan/Morris most likely with inclusions of Katoa and Renaldo (playing FLb) Can see RTS and even Mamaulo scoring well, Hopefully.

    preliminary thoughts are Marsters, Brown > Munster, Nuff pending TLT.

    tossing up throwing one of Marsters/Nikora out the door, but thinking Marsters before as Nikora has a much better base, dual flexibility and is also on the outside of SJ so could string some scores together. thoughts?

    Agreed, marsters is out for me unless I nuff D brown instead

    I was also looking at Marsters out this week (despite losing heaps of cash on him). But his upcoming opponents made me have a second look. Parra, Knights x2, Bulldogs and Saints all give up points to ctw (according to NRL Supercoach Stats).

    I would go nikora ma’u. I think ma’u top 3 ctw atm with Bateman and Mitchell. He was close to some attacking stats today as well.

    Does his signing with super league for next year not worry you?
    I’m worried BA might cut his minutes to blood some of the guys that will be there long term?

    I was looking around for potential pods to sell Nikora to and came upon Shane Wright from the Cowboys. At first glance, he doesn’t seem SC relevant but taking a closer look, I noticed that he’s had 80 mins the last 2 games and scored 67 and 66 in those games, almost entirely in base. I know 2 games is a small sample size but he seems like a huge POD at 295k (according to ScStats’s projection after this game is taken into account) Does anyone know if he’s likely to lose his starting spot? I don’t think there’s any… Read more »

    Hess could take the starting spot as it was his first game returning from injury yesterday. If Shane Wright is named to start this week I think your safe picking him up

    Wrighty is a ripper player. He’s got a real strong work ethic and has been pulling these type of numbers all year in QCup. Unfortunately with Hess on the bench, Wright won’t be SC relevant. I think he would have came on to replace Wrighty at some point, but instead came on to replace Kahu who was rubbed out of the game with a HIA. I want Wright’s price as low as possible for next year, because with another pre season under his belt I think he’ll nail down an 80 minute spot, especially if Cooper doesn’t get offered a… Read more »
