What are Hynes + SJ owners doing? Can only have 2 so Hynes to Cleary seems the go. I have 6 trades so can get away with it

Temple Guard

With 6 trades Yes I would do it too, I got 2 Trades so I won’t 😉

stormers

Went Hynes to Cleary last week best thing I ever did

carso64

Yep me too. So happy with that trade , also saved on $$$

BT

I have 2 trades left after trading out Val this week. Still seriously considering Hynes to Cleary

Camerz

I went Hynes to cleary in rnd 21 due to the sharks run. Happy with it so far. Just hope SJ keeps it going.

carso64

Hi legends, 2 Trades left $136K ITB
H2H. 2nd on the ladder in my comp.

Still have Holmes. Waiting to see what my opponent does / have before making decisions on trading him or not this week.

Team is –
Grant (Robson)
Hass Horse (Harris Nuff)
Fifita Ola KK (Bateman* Nikora Nuff)
Cleary (Johnson*)
Munster (Manu*)
Marzhew To’o Garrick Te Whare (Holmes Munro Nuff)
Ponga (Teddy*)

Not to sure if I’ve chosen the best reserves, am open for suggestions

Also what would the best VC and C
for this week be ?

Thanks in advance

Temple Guard

You got a good Team… You will need to trade and if you check some of the earlier postings CNK or Marzhew is heavily recommended…
I would VC SJ and Ponga C if it doesn’t work out… but don’t show your cards early… if you get my drift…
BoL carso64

carso64

Haha I know what you mean…….. I’m good at being sneaky lol

Thanks for your good advice, CNK is certainly having a very good year.

Bol to you as well TG

Temple Guard

Now go and Win that battle Mate 😉

bumbum

Sounds like spot on advice mate.

carso64

Cheers bumbum

Brick Wall

I like the reserves

carso64

Thanks Brick Wall

The Duke

Only one forced trade. Holmes to CNK.

Against the top guy in my H2H.

Temple Guard

BoL Duke… C could be the match breaker and I like Your Trade… fingers crossed for You

The Duke

T.G. if I am killed in battle this weekend I want it know it has been an honour to serve with you. You were the Sancho Panza to my Don Quixote.

Last Reserve
TU- Bateman

H2H or overall?

Kazza

No money h2h. (1st, 4th + 13th in h2h’s I am in). But would also like to get highest score possible. I don’t do the match or better opposition on the day I just do the best I can for the week.

Trav80

Holmes to Brown yes. I’d hold the Meany to CNK trade as you have decent CTW depth and keep the last 2 trades to deal with injuries/suspensions in the final 4 rounds

Kazza

Thank you Trav80. If I do the 1 trade it will be brown or CNK. I can do either.

Trav80

Brown is a great POD at this point in the season.

Kazza

That is what I am thinking.

Bozzin8r

CNK or Marzhew?

Footyhead556

Can only play one of these two CTW

TU – Meaney
TD – Mulitalo

Rabs85

Milne loves to jam in despite not being very good at it. I can definitely see Mulitalo crossing untouched

SD23

I agree, Souths haven’t got their defence quite right yet. I just can’t see Meaney scoring many against Penrith.

Hypebeast19

Last R

TU: Muilitalo
TD: S Crichton

Threepeat

Battling with the Teddy to Latrell trade. Would leave 2 trades and a complete team with plenty of depth.

Only have Cody from Souths currently

I have cover for Round 26 as currently leaving Egan and Horse out of the 17

I am having trouble trusting the Roosters

Thoughts on the trade

TU Good trade
TD Don’t do it

BT

100% do it. Although, does the trade need to be made this week? Could be worth seeing what Teddy can do against Manly

Threepeat

I am considering waiting a week…not a bad shout

LB13

Who’s your other fullback? Think both could prove to be a handy FLB combo if possible

Threepeat

Ponga the other FB. Cody and Munster at 5/8

LB13

If you don’t need to strengthen anywhere else it’s an upgrade for sure

Who do we actually think will score more this week – hynes (v rabits) or cleary (v storm) – that question matters more to some of us than $$ or ROS prospects, being wk 1 of H2h playoffs. I’m thinking hynes might still score higher this week, as bad as he’s been.

Hey Gang,

I’m currently in 6th and I think I might be in a world of trouble to make it out of the first round. Would appreciate the help!

$7200 ITB, 7 trades available, no boosts.

Grant (Mahoney)
Haas, Horse (Pele, Tanner)
Fifita, Nikora, Schuster (Preston, Host, Williame)
Johnson (Cleary*)
Walker (Katoa)
Holmes, Graham, B.Smith, Te Whare (Isaako*, Turuva*, Munro)
Drinky (Gutho*)

I know Holmes will be going, I’m just stuck on the second option.

The Pretender

I think you might be a trade short of an ideal side. 2RF and CTW both a bit weak, I would focus any trade thoughts there.

Temple Guard

I would also swap Drinky with gutho and C him vs Dragons… what do You think TP?

The Pretender

Oh for sure Gutho would be my C, SJ my VC.

ZaftigVein

I think you’re both right, I’m one trade short to get it where I would like it but it’s all good. I thought about Val and Drinky for Ponga and Hopgood? Would Ponga do better than Gutho this week?

corsola

Who is more of a buy?

TU – McInnes
TD – Hopgood

HC92

Hopgood based on pedigree and potential upside. I tell you what though, McInnes is a proven gun and if he comes out getting another 70/80 odd this week, becomes a real contender to bring in for the back end of the season.

Colossal Von Crumpet

Reckon McInnes only play 80 last week due to Kennedy Injury. Hasn’t played more than 60 mins all year.

HC92

Guys am stuck in an awful situation
Who from the below sits on the pine this week out of these:
Cook
AFB
Hynes
Manu
Garrick
Drinkwater
Need to leave 2 out of the squad. Leaning towards Garrick and Manu
Alternatively, I could sit out Horse/Tapine and play AFB then only skip out on having one of the two mentioned above miss out.
Cheers for all your help in advance. Love the community

Temple Guard

I think you logic makes sense HC92… I would sit them 2 out too, if I had to pick from them great options provided
BoL Mate

The Pretender

I would personally only play 2 FRF’s and play the 2 with the most upside (Hors and AFB). Would also leave out Cook who I think generally lacks upside a bit too. Impossible to leave out Hynes and Drinky on any given week, and I think Manu and Garrick should go well.

2bax

cook and garrick

LB13

I’d leave out Cook & Tapine/Horse

trentmark

Out:
Horse
ARey
Manu

In:
Cleary
Gags
CNK

Might as well use my last boost for a big play.
What does the brains trust think?

The Pretender

I personally would keep Hors, but I like the idea its a hell of a move.

trentmark

He has been handy, but it’s his value I need to brink in CNK.
I still have
AFB, Tapine in FRF, and Tohu Fifita, Nikora, Presto and Piakura as 2RF plays.

It is either him or Tapine, and I think he is they keeper of the 2

The Pretender

I personally like Horse more than Tapine, but I dont think you can go wrong either way. Tapine pretty good the last month, though admittedly that was primarily with Horse and Papalii out.

2bax

in that case i’d sell tapine before horse

2bax

good trades, i’d be reluctant to sell manu but if it funds an extra trade it’s fine. Saying that, CNK probably has upside with his draw. Do it

boink

Sc talk legends. Up against first place in my league and I’m in a pickle for trades. Team “seems” ok on paper. Who should I trade in or out? No one really jumps out for me rn. 6 trades 150k itb
Hk- Grant Nikorima
Frf – Tapine Horse nuffs
2rf Dfifi hopgood Nikora tohu Bateman nuff
Halves Cleary hynes Munster ponga
Ctw – Marzhew too Garrick AJ Isaako nuffs
Trell nuff

Trav80

Warriors have an amazing draw to finish so you could consider CNK, DWZ or AFB

The Pretender

One of CNK or DWZ seems a must at this point.

SD23

Which set of pods wins this week? Feels like a ripper match up.

TU- CNK, Cleary, Munster, Latrell, AJ, Hynes, Nikora
TD- SJ, DWZ, Drinky, Cody, Keaon, Cook, Moses.

Temple Guard

Nice Battle SD23… I feel TD…. just… but it’s a guess as you know
SJ Moses combo should outscore Cleary Hynes Combo IMO
BoL Mate

PnoyBronx

The one with trades and cunning in the way they are utilised

Adam

9 trades left in H2H finals.

Hynes > Johnson
I Katoa > Latrell
Holmes > Nuff

TU: Love it
TD: Not a fan

The Pretender

I couldnt like it anymore, honestly.

Dazzling14

Is Lomas a good POD replacement for Val? last trade

Last edited 8 months ago by Dazzling14
SD23

He is too expensive for mine and in an ordinary team. Much prefer DWZ, CNK, Gagai, C.Graham, To’o etc for cheaper.

The Pretender

I agree with this, particularly NZ boys and Gags.

Dazzling14

Money doesn’t matter, as it’s last trade to replace Val

SD23

Fair but still think the others mentioned are better options.

eldinko

I think you have missed the boat should have got on two or three weeks ago. Also depends on your opponent

Bluegoose

The biggest “POD” replacements are Gagai, DWZ and Graham. Can’t go too wrong with any of them looking at the outlook going forward.

CSI

Hey guys who scores more for h to h only during semis
Ponga. S J or. CHN
THANKS

SD23

Ponga

Temple Guard

Lmfao must be a typo Mate… Corey Harawira-Naera shouldn’t even come into the mix with Ponga and SJ… as he has been out for sometime…guessing you either meant Hynes or CNK

Last edited 8 months ago by Temple Guard
CSI

Sorry meant CNK

Temple Guard

Figured all good Mate… can’t really split Ponga and SJ both would be good
Comes down to how many trades you got left too… if that is your last Trade may as well get Ponga… SJ is way cheaper and you could possibly upgrade somebody else with the spare cash if you got 2 or more trades left
