My H2H opponent has McInnes and with him expected to play 80 mins at hooker, I’m thinking Harris to McInnes?

TU Yes
TD No

Clune is out, so assuming Hunt goes back to halfback and McInnes back to hooker. It could only be for one week though.

Would be waiting on what the Eels decide to do with Matto re his previous head injuries. Tofu’s teammate Tevaga, RFM and Tapine are some PODs I’d recommend

Big blow at @Cronulla_Sharks Chad Townsend out for 4-6 weeks with a grade 2 calf strain. Jesse Ramien’s worst case scenario is a week out, still hopeful he could play Broncos on Friday @NRLcom

To Mr Dan Walsh,
It is a big blow for the Townsend household but that is about it. For all SC players I suspect it is an absolute blessing. Watching Townsend butcher red zone opportunities over and over again is horrible for SJ, Ramien, Kennedy and Katoa owners. ScoMo allegedly seen doing cartwheels around Parliament House after hearing this news.

Scomo may have caused a tsunami around Lake Burley Griffin if he did cartwheels around Parliament House – that gut would cause shockwaves that could knock out a whole herd of Sharks! But yeah you’re right as it gives SJ a free reign now over ball control. Any ideas about Ramien – it sounds minor:

I’m in the same boat with Coates, would think it’d be best to move on from him while his nuffing value is still pretty high. Hell, you could even move to a POD CTW like Kennedy, Rapana or whoever storm throws in this weekend to replace Brenko and Momo with his value

Nofo is coming in for me for sure this week …. just gotta decide which 2 of the 3 are highest priority trade outs …. currently leaning toward coates & brailey ( before as u say coates loses and value of a trade down & both were almost gone last week b4 the api news then decided to hold coates another week in favour of bringing in papalii for crichton) even with the highest b/e of the 3 i think iku biggest chance of getting closest ??

Anyone having a look at GJennings? As crazy as that is to say..

Should be locked in for a wing spot at the Warriors for the remainder of the season, has a score of 71 in his rolling average, costs about $290K.

Genuinely thinking about it as a downgrade for Coates. Surely makes some coin.

Really tough draw would be what puts me off. Had really good B+P in his one game and could be a great POD but getting on the scoresheet would be the worry

As soon as i heard over the wkend he was getting loaned out i thought hmmmm …. but like jettio says – theres alot of risk involved. So long as u dont need ro play him MAYBE but even after their great effort last week will be interesting to watch them moving foward now another 4 players have left

Nofo the obvious choice but I do think Chricton looks like a very good player and Panthers have a good draw.

I can get Teddy in this week. But it absolutely bankrupts me. Would require me to nuff Api and upgrade RTS. Leaving $600 in the bank. This would obviously make upgrading the nuff hooker to CS9/Cook extremely difficult in coming weeks, not to mention other upgrades.

TU: Do it.
TD: Don’t watch Roosters games ever again.

You don’t have to necessarily nuff out.
Randall likely to get named for Knights but could in the 14?
Starling 201k with -35 BE.
Both of these guys might make 100k in the next month?

You’d have to think he will be eased back in. My guess would be 55-60 minutes.

Probably depends on the makeup of the bench. As a Broncos fan I hope we start him and flog him for 80 mins every week.
