Well I’ve got Galvin and S Fainu, and am thinking seriously of a (drum roll please….):
Lussick > Api
Angus > DFifi

even tho’ Fifita isn’t a Tiger, I know, but he is a high-performing Titan!

Yep I have been targetting Knights and Tigers players for virtually the same reason – they play (almost) all of the major and minor (3 team) byes…the only exception being Tigers last week

Round 14
 
The Magic Number for Round 14 is 9518, down from 9601 for Round 13.
 
To calculate a player’s Break Even (BE) use the following formula:-
 
BE = ((Player’s current salary ÷ magic number) x 3) – sum (last score + 2nd last score)
 
e.g. Hynes = ((984,100 ÷ 9518) x 3) – sum (3 + 114) = 193

Hynes down to Hughes and Smithies to either DFifi or Carty? Use a boost and trade up Sam Hughes to S Fainu?

Just some considerations matie.

Good luck with it, but don’t do anything before Origin. 🙂

Why is no one buying matuma from tigers. Am I doing an error trading a nuff to him over Crichton to fifi?

Job security is iffy. But he seems to pass the eye test for me, so I don’t mind it.

It could work I suspect many want to see more. Tigers have tried 6 players at 13 it is hard to trust his job security. If he keeps it he would be good and looking at his stats he scores at about 1 per minute on a small sample size. Am thinking of it myself If it turns out that he keeps going at a PPM of 1 and plays every game during the bye period it looks a good enough deal depending on trades. Putting out fires I would need to boost to do it this week. My trades… Read more »

Hands will make you some money so you can eventually upgrade if you want to sell him. If he stays as the only hooker for Parramatta you may be able to run him as hooker 2 for the rest of the season.

I just done it as a boost still thinking fairly possible that I reverse to save the trade – Wouldn’t do it over Fifita. Qld win likely Keeps Fifita out of Origin 2 unless there are injuries. Didn’t notice any of the Qld backrowers playing poorly.

I would keep Hynes as he may not play game 2 after the loss. Mosses could be ahead of him. Even if he moves to Bench utility he likely backs up from there. Think it will be tough for Cricten to play 80 in Origin and backup for big minutes. Its about 50% gamble and 50% guess.

My plan with Hynes it to play him R15 and then reassess after O-2 selections.

Thinking about using my last boost to go Walsh to Latrell. Bunnies are terrible but he is scoring well despite their form.

Chance Latrell makes Origin in place of Sua’ali’i. Walsh is a sell nevertheless.

Short to 17 this week and Trying to bring in fifita however need to downgrade someone. What can I do? Need to do both trades

Also in the consideration of AFB (which is more affordable) ?

You could downgrade Hughes to Matamua and bring JDB up to FRF

Hynes + Hughes to Fifita and Hughes is probably the way to go for sure.

What are the chance Josiah Karapani plays with Reece Walsh ruled out?
Would Cobbo move to FB or would it be Tristan Sailor that getst he nod?

My two bob is he is pretty reasonable chance. The 2 reasons/issues are #1. Is Sailor fit? He was meant to be a week or 2 away. If he is then i think he gets the start at fullback. #2 Cobbo – played 70+ mins 4 days prior + the extra kms at fullback + his recent hammy issue + Karapani doing ok = i would give Cobbo this weekend off. Broncos mysteriously always play on weekends over origin means he gets a bit of chance to recover though. Kev probably planned on him playing. How bad will Kev need… Read more »

I’m thinking of backflipping on trades. Going to leave the tiger lads out of trade ins, and get dfifi and latrell in, for crighton and Walsh. I am leaving a boost and lane, Hughes and smitties in the team. Have 17. Maybe there’s a chance the trade ins make more points than the byes anyway. Wonder if it’s another mistake
