I look forward to making a few Supercoach buys of guys I think are a bit leftfield and then watching them not work out so I have to scramble to recover and end up with a good team but too late again. Like every year.

Will I take the Turbo gamble again this year... remains to be seen, but either way it will be the wrong choice.

yeh i will jump in on this, going to go with my nba strategy and see if it works in this league, which it probably wont
At least you should get our boy Nicho in your side buying all the tallest players

anyone keen on a draft league?
Is it still more fiddly than a parish priest? I tried draft a couple of years ago but setting it up was too much of a chore. I'm in if it's improved

I did it first time last season and found it fine. Could make it fiddly by trying to get your board perfect before the draft, worth doing that more if you will be getting an auto draft because you can’t make the draft though

I think Talakai might be priced about right, and he's lost the DP, so I'm going to look for some value elsewhere in the CTW. Might be an upgrade option later on tough, especially if he misses Origin

While centre but pre Wade (which is also pre Talakai shoulder injury, which seemed to be relevant rest of season) Talakai averaged 81
Based on that he is around $215k under price
That includes his three biggest scores but also 36, 50, 34 the three weeks after Manly when he was the most heavily marked man in the league AND Wade started coming off the bench.

Teig is about 150k underpriced from his average in this period, again you could guess/hope a bit more accounting for bench Wade in last three weeks

I'm pretty firmly in camp 'cut Wade' now I think..!

I don't see Talakai hitting that average regardless, but he's definintely a solid option. Whereas you're right, is Tieg gets the starting spot there's a heap of upside early on to get decent points and build value (beside the early bye... geez that's awkward)
