I'm unsure on a few players, mostly all my backs haha.
thanks for the heads uo on Birdie.. i had totally missed that !
Not a problem. I was looking at him as well before I saw that lol
Sione Mau'tautia might be a good replacement or good old BJ Leilua
Looks like Havili is starting, brought him in for Cook and swapped Watson out for Ponga.
Need a pod 2 Nd row
Thinking Tko. Might have goal kicking and guerra s 80 mins??
I'm monitoring both of them atm, too hard to call without round 1 teamlists though.
Most likely Newcastle team-
I think Fitzgibbon will start on an edge, he's a machine. Buhrer and Barnett to fighr it out for lock.
Buhrer should be on the bench to be backup backrower and hooker.
Looks like they will carry both Griffin and Levi so Buhrer at hooker won't be required. Probably just use him to rotate at lock and cover the edges.
I would drop Griffin personally. Brock Lamb should ask for a release.
tko is my team i dont care if he starts or comes off the bench
Yeah I have him as a potential goal kicker. But he ain’t cheap.
Will keep an eye on team lists.
I thinks it’s either him or buhrer
Anyone taking a punt on Ryan James? Is he expected to play 80 on the left edge?
hes someone iv got in end of year as a pod and worked out well for the majority but never started with him as he does have a lot of average games (40-55) in him even playing 80
I just was looking at him but went with Nathan brown instead.
Have tossed between that graham Taupau and even thinking of finding more for Vaughan or Jake trbo.
Hard looking at centres then as either one of kata bmoz or even Hiku would start. Don’t like that
Yh i had him in 2016 when he was killing it, even then he had some average games. I'm just thinking if he plays 80 on the edge he will probably average around 50+ in base stats while improving his attacking output.
Cartwright might throw a big wrench in the Ryan James 80min plan. They have a decent pack now. All these players vying for 8 spots and minutes.
I think Brown is out of my price range, haven't really considered him at this stage. Is he expected to play big minutes again?
