    With Maumalo now out need someone for my last CTW spot:

    TU: Gutho
    TD: To’o

    Also need to pick two to start this week from Matto, Taupau, Klemmer or Murray?

    Taupau & Klem.

    Klemmer has the lowest ceiling of the 4 so I’d probably sit him

    Murray seems like a good option to bench but can see a try off Cook for him this week

    Taupau is a lock to play

    Does Matters get shut down by the Raiders?……..potentially

    I’ve gone against the grain here so I’ll explain why. I also am only playing one of these two. I think Murray is going to play good minutes just because souths are down on numbers in there pack. Matto is playing the Raiders who don’t give a lot away to backrowers (altough Matto scored well against them last outing). Nth Qld do conceed more points in both the middle and the edges. Having said that I think Matto will score more in base and Murray will need to rely a bit on his attacking stats. So it was a tough… Read more »

    Murray has put some good scores on the cowboys in the past and South’s need the win so for me Murray should be a lock in imo. Matto imo might have a good base game but I can only see the Raiders running home with this one and a lot of standing under the post. That’s just how I see it playing out, so far I have been 50/50 with my calls so really I have no clue but personally I like South’s Panthers and Manly for big scores this week.

    Matto score well against Canberra partly cos he made 54 tackles against them.

    Maloney could turn out to be a nice POD play imo.

    Is anyone running with Xerri ?
    I am seriously considering it this round but the news of a yet surface scares me.

    Appreciate any feedback, cheers.

    Cheers FT, DF and GA, at the moment Xerri is on my pine and I am running with Bateman, To’o, Burns and Mitchell instead. I still think xerri will score well but not willing to risk it on a yet surface.

    Assume you mean TD for playing Cleary lol

    I’m in the same boat, if weather is bad play Cleary.
    If Cleary is kicking goals than I’m definitely playing Cleary

    Cleary/SJ
    Ponga/Brown
    Mitchell/Bateman/Niko/Too/Aitken/Simo/Herbert
    Turbo/Gutho
    Thinking can go McInnes to Cook and Jazz to Teddy with $1000 left itb. Wanting both but should I wait until next week.
    TU – Wait until next week
    TD – Just do it now
    Thanks for any help

    Sounds crazy but could you wait until next week for COok? with both Mcinnes and Smith? See who performs better then sell the other?

    Same with Jazz, If jazz continues like he is he wont be leaving my side.

    Would sell Simo/Herbert/Aitken before him

    Edit: Why not sell one of them – Simo/Herbert/Aitken or even both to grab Teddy this week, moving Gutho down, then Cook net week?
