Unfortunately the squad has hit a few stumbling blocks this round with injuries to Alex Johnston, Tohu Harris, a HIA to Campbell Graham which has him doubt, and the benching of Taane Milne at South Sydney.
I’ve got the depth to cover it and six trades left to work with, so I’m feeling okay about it and will be holding Johnston.
Unfortunately I was knocked off in the SC Playbook head-to-head league by the Spy and dropped out of the eight, which is my main goal in SuperCoach 2021. A victory this week is needed big time.
Let’s take a look at trades and captains for the coming round.
Normally I make my trades early in the round to avoid forgetting, but this week I’ll hold fire for as long as possible. Being in the NRL bubble on the Gold Coast gives me no real excuse to forget making the trade.
In coming will be David Nofoaluma, one of the game’s best finishers.
He’s very cheap for a prolific try-scorer and gives me far better options to play in my centres.
That’ll be my only trade this week in an attempt to conserve the final five at my disposal.
