Currently on 1010 which looks around/below par.

After 2 poor weeks with captaincy selections scoring below 50, Fifita provided a serviceable 58. Hopefully J Friend returns as I'll start leaking too many points playing B Smith whereas others will have D Cook/C Smith/etc. Thanks to a differential of less than 70 I will be able to afford J Host to B Xerri and A Keighran to K Ponga this round and then operation Cook will be underway which could potentially mean I sacrifice A Tolman to fund it quickly so it only takes 1-2 rounds.

8 players below 50: B Smith, A Tolman, C Gutherson, J Arrow, C Murray, M Taupau, J Okunbor and CNK
7 between 50-79: E Marsters, J Tedesco, S Lane, M Morgan, J Trbojevic, A Fifita (C) and J Bateman
2 80+: B Nikora and N Cleary
So Cook is the number 1 man in this game?

1199 to push me up to 4598th, continuing to be aggressive with my trades.

Garrick -> Xerri
Sivo -> Kikau/Martin (via. Nikora)

Leaves my starting 17 at-
Cook
Fifita- Fonua Blake (Taupau)
Trbojevic- Burgess- Arrow (Kikau/Martin- Murray)
Cleary
Morgan
Bateman- CNK- Nikora- Okonbur
Tedesco (Ponga)

Apparently Fifita could miss a couple weeks but I’m holding and Arrow is under a cloud but feel he is too good to trade.
Got Harris Tavita already and good cash from Ravalawa and Garner to cash out in a couple weeks. Only really want Marsters and Latrell to complete my team which I’ll be able to do easily when/if CNK and Nikora drop off. And T Trbojevic, Taumalolo, Friend when they return from injury.

Score: 1043
Rd Rank: 62,251
Overall Rank: 11,624

Current RD6 trades:
Out: A Keighran, J Host
In: K Ponga, B Xerri

Current RD6 team post trades:


1555305941974.png
1555305984436.png

3 serviceable rounds (avg of 1054.33) with average/poor captains scores below 60 in conjunction with Friend missing has led to a drop in the rankings from a height of 1879 in RD2 to be currently positioned at 11624.

P Haas will come in for one of Tatola/Tolman and B Smith will likely make way for M Rein/C Smith next week or I can make another downgrade to allow B Smith to be turned into D Cook in RD8.

Back down to 7763 with a score of 1126. Upgrade time this week with 310k in the bank. Thinking maybe Host to Crichton but open to any View attachment 8232 suggestions. View attachment 8233
FB's, HFB'S and HOK are great so no need to trade in or out there but I would be looking to trade some of the FRF/2RF players.

List of players to target in no particular order would be
S Burgess
S Lane
V Kikau
D Klemmer
R Martin
A Crichton

Not named again this week so maybe young gun is onto something. Haven’t read anything about it though, which is concerning.
In hindsight I should have kept K Holland instead of trading him but ah well. Will D Cook be playing in RD12? If not and Friend misses next week I will likely keep Friend and trade B Smith and J Tatola to M Rein and P Haas.

I’m assuming cook won’t play round 12 as origin is the Wednesday after.

I can’t remember how long until Peats is back, so I’d look at that just in case he’s back to replace rein before round 12.
