Do we get two or four trades before the two bye rounds?

Only 2, we do get 5 between rounds 15 and 16 I think it is, when the rep weekend is with origin 2

Little help? Really need to find a downgrade for next week. Maybe sell Angus? Or Walker? But for who? TIA

Brailey – Watson
TPJ JFH – Uto Leniu
Angus Lolo Barnett – Curran Sitili Nuff
Cleary – Walker
Munster – Schuster
To’o Holmes Hynes Nofo – Kelly Staines Nuff
Teddy – Turbo

Depends if you’re looking to cover bye’s or not i guess.
Tohu is going great and won’t play origin but also doesn’t play R13.
Walker could be nuffed and pocket the cash, upgraded, downgraded or held as he is still making good scores but has had a couple of quiet games which is to be expected as well

I’m tempted to grab cheese for 2 weeks if Grant is out still.

would downgrade walker and maybe try upgrade Uto, as it seems hes not in the squad and they dont lose anyone to origin. could maybe go early on A Kelly and use that cash to upgrade uto to someone like klemmer. I dont know how much cash you have ITB. But comes down to whether you want players for the bye or are straight head to head.

I’ve been playing SC a long time, but i think this week might be just about the most difficult week I’ve seen for making the correct decisions. So many guns misfiring, and guys getting suspended with Origin around the corner.

However, predicting the question of the week will be easy. It’ll be on every page – what to do with Sam Walker, and if it is trade him, who to?

Depends how your squads lined up. I can sell him and bring in a half, or move gamble to half and bring in a 5/8th, or move Watson to 5/8th and bring in a 9, or move cheese to 9 and bring in a 2rf, or move tpj to 2rf and bring in a prop.

I was going to wait till origin is announced to bring in 2 from Maloney/Luai and Papilli/Haas but I’m thinking Burton. he’ll get a good price increase and play 13 (probably 14) in the half’s.

Hi Phil, I apologise for the late reply. The fundraiser just kept going and then I skimmed through the Panthers v Rabbitohs game when I got home. My email is hastings_2@bigpond.com. I would be extremely interested to discuss this further as my concern with regard to concussion in rugby league dates back to 2002. At that time, I attended a Sports Medicine conference in Melbourne. One of the speakers was Prof Paul McCrory. He had just completed a three-year study on AFL players. There were 100 players involved in the study and approximately 130 concussions over that three-year period. Obviously, not… Read more »

Hi Watson, thanks for your extremely informative insight into concussions in the NRL. I know I learn a lot from your experience and appreciate your comments. Can I suggest though, that IF a fine system were to be introduced it not be a set amount but a percentage of the players wage. For example a $10k fine to one of the games superstars is nothing but to a development player it’s probably over a tenth of their annual salary. Just a thought. Cheers, tk

Great idea. I must admit I was thinking of the big earning players when I mentioned that number but what you say makes perfect sense. I just feel that there needs to be another way so that we can see teams field a reasonable complement of their players every week.

With Crichton & Murray out,Tohu & IPap is a good start

Matterson, JFH, Barnett, TPJ, LThompson, Frizzell, Leilua all could be worth a mention

If you can afford it, and depending on your team. Bringing in fifita this week is a massive pod move as most players sold him. hard to say without seeing your team but id say, tohu, pap and maybe JFH for dual flexibility

Went off for a HIA (which he passed) then went off a 2nd time for something else. Wouldn’t touch him now, especially with Gus potentially missing the next 2 weeks.

played 33 minutes in the first half and was on at the end of the half so it cant of been a HIA as minimum, has to be 15 minutes

If Walsh is going to continue playing fullback should we be including him in the fullback conversation? Guy is going to be 400k and throwing up big centuries with Cows, Knights, Dragons and Sharks on deck.

Coach has been adamant he’s going to manage his minutes. Only got the start because of pre-match injury.

Massive jump
1352 up to 1447. Cleary with a whopping 190 again.

These 150+ are going to have to be the normal captain scores. The captain your forward days are over.
