I am assuming you either already have Angus or think he will play SOO this year.

I wouldn’t call Radley a gun. I would prefer someone that can get some attacking stats like Nikora, Wilton, D Lucas or Kikau.

Like Radley as a player but he spends his time only one brain snap out of the sin bin or long term suspension. It could be a genius POD move or just as likely a train wreck.

Taking the punt with May myself (surely Leniu is a bit underdone).

something still ‘off’ with Turbo. not performing well. yes he scored a try, but still…. Garrick pushed to wing and doesnt get the ball enough. Isaako the same….everything thru the middle or intercepts !- written with 20 to go

He probably had to be traded out soon anyway, as I couldn’t see him backing up during origin.

thumbs up DCE – and by the way, can Manly get rid of Waddell??? … please!! and Brooks is just getting nothing … Cheery playing like Nathan does and even runs plays to Brooks side of the field and ignores him … Brooks not being allowed to do anything creative himself it seems …

DCE was in classic headless chook mode tonight. Turbo not quite the player he once was (now injured). Waddell isn’t the most talented player, but seems to have a go. Koula at FLB next week might actually be a good thing. Ola back too! Broncos by 12+ 😉

From the SMH:

“Reuben Garrick has previously filled in admirably when Trbojevic is unavailable, but the Sea Eagles are poised to hand the fullback jersey to speedster Tolutau Koula for the Magic Round clash with Brisbane next Friday.

Koula has played much of his junior football at No.1 and the Sea Eagles believe he can be an X-factor at the back.”

From memory, Koula trained there as the backup in the offseason. Agree that Garrick at FLB would be good for SC!

Yep I’m afraid you might be right – and it’s probably classed as a Sea Eagles’ home game too. They always do that – then they realize that the away fixture is at …..Suncorp! Dumb bastards – why give up the opportunity to have a maximum of games at Brookie??? (Yeah I know it’s all about money!) . Sorry mate, I just feel so bad that the Dolphins’ game spells the end of Manly’s chances for 2024 – Poor Jake, I’m sure he’s so cut up about the whole thing too!

The last 2 weeks as a Manly fan have been a little depressing, haven’t they, AJW. Time to ditch Siebold and bring in Wayne Bennett next year (one can dream).

I think Turbo has been managed. He plays till they get in front and then takes a back seat avoid risking injury. He was averaging close to 80.

Also many of Brooks point came from working with Turbo and Burbo. Will see if Brooks goes any better but I doubt it. He is still stuk in my team because of other fires have been more urgent. I was going to turn him into Brown next week but now it looks like it will be Nathan to Brown instead.

Bennett hooked PLath tonight after that intercept too … we crimped his scoring and then the HIA at the end capped off a bad night for him and those of us that own him

May up against Crichton though. I think Panthers-Bulldogs will be a close one in the wet.

it’s either SJ or May.. I can’t see RTS carving up the roosters defence even tho he is solid. Iro is equally solid putting up decent scores atm.

Would you play Koro or lussick? If koro plays, will share minutes with simpkin. Also Da silva a reserve so koro might not play. I assume the call will be made after captains run today. Hopefully we know before Eels game tonight.

Knights average most points vs hooker (thanks to the Saifitis never tying in behind the ruck).

Have been tossing up between Armstrong ( lower cost bigger profit ) and Faalogo (more likely scores less profit risky base). Armstrong gives $200K for bank but I suspect Faalogo could churn out some better numbers. Both look like struggling in the rain and Risk of Faalogo injury.

Need a trade down to finance Pappy to Drinks or would happily wait for Faalogo next week.

not a must necessarily, but a decent cash grab – he should hold his place and play – hopefully scores some attacking points and keeps earning cash …
