Conditions shouldn’t bother either. 28 degrees is mild for Townsville, and 16 degrees (rain & cold) is normal for a pommie from northern England.

Dear Eliase Katoa, Its time for you to leave my squad. You have been an enigma wrapped in a riddle when it came to choice of playing in my 17. When I did you busted out a plodding score, and when benched you scored so well you frustrated me more. I did work out in the end that when I benched you I should back you to score a try and you funded my wallet twice. Still you have generated a $300k profit and its time to replace with a player who can provide me more certainty in my backrow.… Read more »

That was …. poetic Sal. He will be leaving my team next week. Seeing you have sold him I’m now expecting a ton tonight!

The trick is if you NPR him, back him as an anytime tryscorer.

I have the choice to sell him or TPJ Sally, TPJ will not lose money, and i am selling E.Kat.

Toss a coin. If he scores a try ($5) he beats his breakeven and makes a few more dollars, if he doesn’t he loses $16k worst case scenario.

Was thinking the same thing yesterday Hunter, someone mentioned today Papi will spend more time watching Croker kick goals and scared me, I think i might give Jurbo a go instead.

Jurbo was my next option. Seems like a situation of no clear answer unfortunately.

I have gone for the POD VC Walker and C Ponga play myself. Do not see it as a bad option personally and with the rain about tonight I thought why not zag another direction.

Rain everywhere in Sydney and Central Coast?? Will that impact Cleary significantly as a C??

personally cleary seems to be a field positional player. if the panthers are carrying the ball out of their own half he doesnt have much points coming. its only in the opposition half he gets most of his points. all u need is the panthers to keep play in warriors half & points should come.
weather shouldnt impact him individually, its going to be how much it favours warriors in slowing the game down

TU: C Cleary
TD: C Bateman

Note: looking to climb up the rankings so perhaps a POD captain in Bateman isn’t bad

With this rain around, Cleary probably is a POD captain.
