With Surgess, Brown and Harris on the bench and NOT FOR SALE, I’m going Sami to Marsters and Sao to Sorenson. Can just field a forward pack – Fafita, Lodge, Kikau, Arrow, Jurbo and Sorenson but my backs are set for the year with Marsters, Matterson, Hiku, Aitkens and Isaako plus Katoa if he ever gets a go so I am still optimistic though I have dropped 4000 places in the last 2 weeks due to Jurbo being captain and injured 2nd rowers.

Keep calm and hold them. They’ll be big PODs when they come back

Post-trade shape

Cook (CS9)
Kikau – Fifita (Surgess / Tatola)
Arrow – Jurbo – Matto (Murray / Gos / Milne)
JT (Croker)
Maloney (SJ)
Gagai – Aubo – Kennar – Croker (Gennings / Dui / Katoa)
TTurbo (Teddy)

I’m reasonably happy with it, 2-3 weaker players in my 17 due to injury but I can’t afford to get better replacements in the mean time without dropping SJ or Surgess, who I need to hold.

Going to lose some money on Dui this week, have to live with that.

Who would you trade in for Mansour (350k itb)? For reference I already have Rapana and Matterson. Cheers.

Mansour to Jennings (Thumbs Up)
Mansour to Aubo (Thumbs Down)

Will fund Rochow to Fifi

Given both play round 13, similar prices and BE’s (1/24 respectively), I am interested in any justification as to why 1 over the other. Was hoping Mansour to Katoa this week was on the cards but that hasn’t played out.

I think Aubbo has more job security than Gennings for R13. It was a relief that he held his spot but when Hayne comes back, Gennings and French will be fighting for that wing spot and Gennings may not even be around if everyone is fit. Aubbo is cheap (comparatively) is dpp which may be useful and will play R13 due to Tupou being out (potentially still out with pec injury) and Cordner with origin duty. Both should make similar money.

2nd thoughts think Sorenson will get at least a few more weeks but what is Kota from Panthers like. Who would be better

Hearing through mutual friends and teammates of Payne Haas that he will most likely debut for Broncos this week. One to keep an eye on that’s for sure. Will update when I know more.

I know a fair few of the Wynnum players personally. This is all word to mouth. Wouldn’t bother putting it out there if I wasn’t mildly confident.

Yeah i know he’s not named and that’s why the scoop isn’t crazy news unfortunately. If anything gives me more confidence in it being reality. Boy I’m excited to see his SC potential.

Rank these guys in order of priority to get in this week:
Rfm – low be, will make money with 60+ avg
Hess- 70 avg but plays origin
Lolo- still questioning his minutes and output

Cheers

Lolo – if overall, price wont be any cheaper between now and R13 when they play Manly minus the Trbojevic bros. Could go massive.
RFM – if overall, is a purchase post R13 on the basis he looks a keeper but you should be trying to reserve spots in your 2RF with gun/keeper players that play 13.
Hess – if H2H only, playing 80min, dpp a gun in that position on exposed form to date.
all 3 could conceivably be in your final team come years end.

Is Cotric to Sio a wasted trade? Started with Cotric thinking he could be a good POD but his decent form hasn’t meant good SC scores. My heart wants to keep Cotric but head says Sio v a horrible manly outfit could be the go
