    convinced that TPJ and Curran are now both sells. Curran’s value is diminshed now he’s missing 17 and TPJ – while he’s a clear second best FRF option – is out for too long.

    So two questions:
    1. Is Garrick worth it at 720
    2. Who would you sell to get him out of Peach/Laurie

    Leaning towards Laurie despite his good run home due to DPP and Peach being a better play week to week.

    In two minds with Hynes. Trade out and his cash helps me get to my final ideal side quicker including Fifita this week. Otherwise keep him, take his points but loses a ton of cash. Head to head player.

    Gents, its great to be back trading after a week off!
    Have not saved a trade all season, but in the top 1k so happy with that effort. I will do my best to limit myself to 2 trades max, and my thoughts are as follows:
    Option 1: TPJ to CHN and possibly Gutho to Garrick (could hold fire on the second trade and miss a potential yuuge score from Garrick)
    Option 2: TPJ to CHN and Hynes to Garrick

      Update: Post the Cleary news that he is to miss atleast 4 weeks, I have a 3rd option:
      Cleary to Hughes, TPJ to CHN/AFB, and Barnett to Garrick.
      Would only leave me with 6 trades for the run home, but would be pretty stacked, and only need Fifi and Cleary back.

    Hi guys, thinking of trading out hynes, TPJ and Curran for Fifita, ramien and Tohu Harris.

    Do you think getting rid of hynes now is a good idea? and thoughts on getting Fifita early? I will have 10 for the bye round with these trades

  5. Hey fellas,

    Going to trade Cleary (unfortunately) but to who? Hughes seems like the obvious choice, but Nikorima plays the bye. What are your thoughts on the two? I already have SJ and my reserve half.

    I brought in Hazza Grant for Brailey in Rnd 9 and held since. The down side is that Watson has been my backup since. It’s hurt but I’ve stuck it out. Am I crazy to stick with this combo for the rest of the year? or burn a trade and offload Watson to I-dont-know-who?
    Love your work guys.

    Gday lads,
    Cleary is the biggest conundrum, whether to sell or not. Playing more H2H and sitting in 2nd in my cash league. Trades without selling Cleary are tpj to afb and matto to Tohu. However if I sell Cleary can go cleary to nikorima, sualli to fiftita, matto to Tohu and tpj to afb, so essentially getting in fifita for the run home, however only leaves 8 trades left. Should I stick with option 1 and have 10 trades left or option 2? Cheers
