We Know SuperCoach!
North Queenslander born and bred, Justin is also very much a Cowboys tragic. Rumours have it that his first born son will be named Thurston.
Need Fifita, Cleary and Grant to back up this week and I can avoid trading or playing Lindsay Smith. I guess Fifita least likely to backup given Grant is off the bench and Cleary backs up last game on Sunday
Latrell’s calf injury is a bit cruel. Doesn’t sound like he will be playing the titans…
I’m with you mate. Except I need Tino carrigan Haas Fifita and Cleary. Might be a good week to just save trades and take my medicine
Looks like Cleary in some doubt now also!
Infected wisdom tooth apparently. You’d think the dentist would pull it out today and he’ll be right to go.
100%. Surely he plays
Chances of Haas, Fifita, Teddy, Cleary, Grant all backing up? Feel the first 2 both less likely than the rest. News of Croker being rested means I need all the play to field 17.
This is of course before any other outs may pop up
Cleary might back up. Unsure on the others.
Haas will be interesting with ankle complaint and broncs beating warriors.
You reckon teddy backs up roosters need a win
I think the only two players that won’t back up are Haas and Fifita. Teddy & Grant should back up. Teddy & the Roosters need a win & Grant limited mins in Origin.
I’m hoping both Cleary and To’o back up since they play on a Sunday and the ladder is pretty tight this year.
As long as they don’t pick up niggles, I reckon both Haas and Fifita back up, but reduced role. Probably start off the bench and maybe play 30-35 minutes each.
Has anyone spotted one-and-done players for round 16?
Maybe Derby from the cowboys. Shouldn’t play again once origin is over
Good option! 39 points in hit ups on the weekend. Could be the ideal R16 player.
Yeah he actually looked busy and who knows if he jagged a try for you could get a nice 60 odd then ride off into the sunset.
why do you want a “one and done player”?but first exactly what does it mean?
One and done means they will play one game and then hopefully never play again. Basically means you won’t get auto-emergency nightmares down the road while also filling a number for a major bye round.
The magic number used to calculate breakevens has dropped to a season low of 9500, down from 9740 last week, making BE’s harder to attain.
To calculate a BE, use the formula
BE = ( ( Players salary / Magic Number ) x 3 ) – last 2 scores
eg Marzhew = ( ( 658000 / 9500 ) x 3 ) – 49 – 138 = 21
Hold Jack bird or jump up to horse with the lower BE?
Bit worried how he didn’t get back on to play, so wondering if that knee might mean less minutes.
Forgot to add
TU: hold bird
TD: trade to horse
John Bateman looks like a good buy. $586K, base average is around the 45-50 mark, and the Tigers are starting to look decent in attack. Plays 16 but not 17, so now would be a great time to buy him.
I think E.Katoa is the better buy
If he overcomes the AC joint injury for Rd16 cover.
Plus he plays vs his old club in the Raiders .imo any time tryscorer looks good as well…
There’s a glitch. Anyone with more than 13 had all players scores counted.
It’s been fixed lad’s
I had 14 play but only got the scores for my top 13
So there’s a chance I can jump higher considering my 14th players score was VTW
i had 15 players ,2 lowest scores were not added into my total score
Fielding a 17 this week seems challenging.
I am struggling too . Considering now I have to deal with latrell being out . So that’s a total of 8 guranteed out. And I don’t want to trade the parra manly and knights players I have because they have been killing it and have low BE
Agree with Latrell out will have to play I.Katoa or Eisenhuth, unless I trade him
Manly, Parra and Knights players are good coverage moving forward. Tough round this one.
J Croker ➡ Kiraz looks really good this week
Agreed. Hopefully with a week off to freshen up kiraz can get back to his early season form.
Trell a trade out now with injury news?
Yes. At that price tag you can buy any player in the game. Dylan Edwards is a great option for Latrell owners.
He will be for me, for two reasons that I suspect will apply to many. Without him I don’t have a fullback, as my other FB is Gutho, who isn’t dual position either. Also, I need to find money from somewhere to upgrade a few spuds, so a swap to Teddy looks on the cards.
Thinking Luemelu + Croker to Bateman & Kiraz.
Had a solid 13 for round 13 but looking at only about 6/7 players leading into the next bye which is concerning! RIP my trades
The only thing is that I see Lemuelu as a potential keeper. It’s personal opinion though of course
Kafusi the worry there. Ive nearly traded him a couple of times but his JS worries me.
He has been great and keeps his spot. If Kbum stays middle he is looking good
You’re not wrong. He does have the potential to be a keeper especially in the CTW. Its either him or Hosking for me however i need Hosking for the bye round coverage and also hoping he goes back to 80 mins during the origin period.
Hosking and Lemuelu actually play the same amount of games between now and round 20 so the bye round in round 16 is not as important
Thinking Trell + Peachey to Isaako/Kennedy (Can’t afford Edwards if upgrade Peachey) + Bateman this week. Not sure how to feel about relying on the Tigers to do well but oh well.
Went Kennedy – only misses 1 game and plays both 16 and 19
Am I crazy to sell Josh Schuster? Keen to get Bateman in my 2RF as I am desperate for a number this week, but don’t want to sell my other guys there. Already have enough numbers for 16 and 19, although 17 is not looking flash.
My current 2RF is Tohu, Preston, Hosking, DFifita, Schuster, Couchman.
If the money can work, I’d be thinking about Couchman first
8K short on Couchman to Bateman unfortunately. Don’t have any other players I could sell in other positions unless I cull an origin player.
What about a 5/8 or FRF?
Brown, Munster, de Belin, Tapine, HEdwards, Greig.
Yeah that’s madness
Madder than some of the plays Schuster ran on Sunday?
Schuster might have played better overall if he’d had a decent halves partner (Johns was a passenger). Agree that his fitness is still an issue.
Man that was tough watching Johns. Total liability
Jake Arthur looks better already!
Yeah your right Shuster looked lost at times, with cherry and turbos he will make some good cash moving forward
With last 2 scores of 106 and 50 his base was 13 and 15. He does play r16 and will still have a low BE. He has made $150k and will make more. Long term he has to go and is not really playable outside of necessity. Not sure what I am doing but I will keep him till R16 if I can get 17 players this week some other way.
Origin players pending, currently have 17 players but no FB thanks to Trell’s injury. Thinking I’ll either take a free go at the VC loop or move someone on for a CTW/FB to switch with Garrick. Think I’m going to have to be flexible with team lists across the weekend.
Trade advice please. Really wanna go Katoa to Cody Walker. $221,700 ITB – anyone see a way?
Tohu, Horsburgh, Sipley, Greig
Fifita, Preston, Ford, Hosking, Peachey, Schuster
Isaako, Manu, Garrick, Katoa, Smith, Warbrick, Burbo
U could sell hynes and katoa to Cody and Hughes
Was thinking Hynes to Moses next week
just read somewhere that latrell may line up against titans this week. Must show how small the injury is. IMO if you own you have to hold you would have waited for these 2 games if he is named
also latrells last 3 scores against GCT are 115 118 and 112
Surely he doesn’t push it. 2 origins to go they will survive the titans without him
Also I have another question for you supercoach nerds. Since coming back from injury kiraz has not gotten above 50, including a try and a couple of linebreaks in these games. Am I crazy to think why are we all jumping on?, he hasnt been great since returning and still some uncertainty around the knee I would be staying well clear
I’ve been thinking the same thing. Doesn’t look close to how he started this year. Knee still looks troublesome perhaps. I’m waiting on him but might just pass altogether.
I would like to bring him back but i agree, he’s shown nothing to suggest he needs to be brought in
Let him have a big score before you consider him. He hasn’t looked good since returning, and it is because of his knee injury.
It’s just about value – he’s a potential keeper at sub-$500k, so if you need to make a trade in CTW this week and and can’t afford any other keepers, then if he bounces back to form you’ve saved a trade down the track.
Personally I have Marzhew, Miller, Garrick, and Croker out this week leaving me one short in CTW, so one of them has to go and Kiraz’s pedigree is definitely enticing.
Relatively cheap for what he can do and plays 16/19…also hasn’t had an LB since the injury
Yeah he’s a no for me doesn’t look 100% the dogs had a winger on the bench last game it was either for him or adocar
I’m calling him out for a big one this week ,
the week off will do wonders 4 the kid. 80+
Hope your right mate
Better trade in option for Latrell
TU: Dylan Edwards
TD: Will Kennedy
Comment to Hold or other FB suggestion
Have Teddy as my other FB
Talaki anyone? (if named)
Got my eye on him
Like everyone else I am struggling for numbers this week, I have $388k itb and I have to deal with some deadwood.
My thoughts this week are
Feagai > Bula ( I will definitely make this trade )
I am tossing up
TU. Hands > Liddle (Byes 16 & 20 )
TD. Burbo > H. Edwards ( Byes 17 & 23 )
