Who would you trade out

Thumbs up Hiku – (to Aubusson, will be in the 17)

Thumbs down Rochow – (to Paseka, will not be in the 17)

Suliasi Vunivalu has been ruled out of tomorrow’s Anzac Day clash for @storm with a low grade hamstring injury. With the long turnaround Storm are hoping he will be fit to return in Round 9

Who is the better downgrade out of Aubo and Gos?

The First XIII

Been thinking on this a bit. For me, Aubo. I’m trading him into 2rf. In a few weeks when a CTW cow is ready for trade out I have the option of trading in pretty much any position with Aubo as a key dual.

Plus all the other arguments from the last 40 pages on Rd 13, steady CTW points, steady cash growth with upside potential etc.

Definitely Aubusson imo. Will play 13 in 2RF too you’d assume so can bank some tidy points then too.

Isn’t Nat Butcher a chance of filling in the 2nd row in rnd 13 too? To early to tell yet.

Butcher plays middle. I dont think they would risk his defence on an edge.

Surely Tturbo goes to ponga to bank the $170k cash

Besides saving cash and the likelihood, but not confirmed chance of Ponga missing origin and playing 13, what other benefits are there. Turbo is in the better team (when Manly get things together), better halves, better pedigree, higher ceiling. Ponga and Knights will imo crumble without Pearce to maintain pressure and posession and will limit Pongas talents and abilities. I’m sure he will still be a gun but can see his scores slipping. Unless this cash grants you a great trade somewhere and you have to get the cash, it should be a no from most people.

I thought that, but then I counted on my fingers how many times he’ll play before SOO and reversed.
The guy can explode at any time, could have two +120s and four 50-70s. Giving up too many points if you cull him.

Pros and cons of Lolo?

devs78

Not sure about Pros or Cons. But he’s minutes & work rate other than last 2 weeks are a worry. And especially last week, which is papered over by that late LB & Try otherwise he was sitting on 15 Points after 55 minutes. The problem is I need a FRF / 2RF Gun & am even less Sold on the other options than Taumalolo! I wanted Brown this week but his not even being named this week has thrown a Spanner in the Works! What I am hoping is a Positive for Taumalolo is the Injuries to McLean &… Read more »

TLT with a twist this week, was settled on trades but alas TPJ named at 13 has me re-thinking. Wayne better play the game and give him the minutes his position suggests!
Pre-TLT: Rochow/TPJ > Fifi/Paseka (thumbs up)
Post-TLT: Rochow/Hiku > Fifi/Aubbo (thumbs down)

HOK: Cook, Havilli
FRF: Surgess,TPJ, Kikau, Rochow
2RF: Jurbo, Lolo, Arrow, Harris, Murray, Leilua
HFB: DCE, Croker
FE: CWalker, Jacks
CTW: Matterson, Mitchell, BJ, Kennar, Hiku, Isaako, Gennings
FLB: Turbo, Teddy.

I think maintaining the points flow is pretty important this week given the number of key players injured. Sammy/Tohu hurts me but SJ/Brown works for me smile
Feedback appreciated.

if you bring in aubo, you will have 3 players from the roosters in your ctw. that’s one reason I’m thinking of avoiding this trade

and Teddy at fullback as well

matterson is 2RF and scoring will not be linked to the backs (i.e. if roosters dont score much like vs bulldogs, matterson still will). but teddy mitchell and aubo is like having croker rapana and BJ – risky if the team doesnt perform. and trickier for byes.

Won’t necessarily play Aubbo each week, maybe not even this week and would have liked to keep Hiku. The upside is I get to keep TPJ this week and hopefully goes 50+ again for next month. 2 years ago, Rapana, BJ and Croker went nuts and were 3 of the top 5 CTW for the year. It’s the exception obviously not the rule.

Thanks Michael, not ideal but better than 3 Manly CTW smile Only have $260k to spend after Fifi. Was hoping Sharks Katoa was named but not to be.

Wow, what a team. I’m envious, have no idea how to fit Lolo and Fifi in currently.

Hiku has to be the one. Good player but his fixtures are brutal. I’m guessing he isn’t in your final team?

marmalade

Ideally would of held him DD, handy dual and i wouldn’t talk anyone out of keeping him through to R18. Other than Matterson, I don’t think there is a certified gun CTW at this point in time although Aitken is a run home target for me (dirty I didn’t start with him). I’m happy with my team, should have good numbers for R13. I’ll be turning young Leilua into Brown at some stage.

Help please!!! !
I am thinking Lodge and Rochow out for LoLo and Tariq Sims… That said i could just do straight lodge to lolo and save a trade… i am also thinking DCE is becoming a liability…. go to Maloney?? or hold DCE??

Rochow to Fifi is locked in

Second trade
A: Lodge to Aubo (thumbs up)
B: Hold trades creating space for Lodge to Sorrenson next week (thumbs down)

The Luke Lewis 4 week news has me thinking!

Appreciate all thoughts? Cheers!

ive traded in paseka but will change to sorrenson and go a week early on him, lewis out for 4 weeks and should play big mins in round 13 as well, and that’s the week u will have him in your 17. I’m avoiding the aubo trade, if I do ill have 4 backs from the roosters, 3 in ctw and teddy

Which team has the best run of games leading up to round 13? I’d think the sharks… Which is why I’ll probably hold Moylan even though his BE is 100 this weekend

Sharks easily
