That's brutal. Although didn't Ponga only miss round 3? Not sure you can bold him when you traded him in round 7.Out of trades for fantasy. Jeez my team went downhill quickly with injuries, poor cash cow selections and the fact that i traded too many mid-pricers who i really should have kept like Mann, Lomax & L.Leilua
EDIT: I was reluctant to blame injuries but i really did get hit hard and did not cope.
Looking at my trade ins, almost all of them got injured/suspended/dropped between rounds 2 and 10 (A fair few others in my starting team got injured/dropped/suspended too)
The bold players got injured/dropped/suspended
Rd 2 - Aubusson & Katoa
Rd 3 - Capewell, Turbo, Grant - Tedesco (Missed a couple rounds)
Rd 4 - Paix - Yeo, MoFo, Murray
Rd 5 - Best, Mitchell
Rd 6 - McInnes, Clune (missed a round or 2)
Rd 7 - Ponga, Talau
Rd 8 - Matterson, Stone, Niu - Johnson
Rd 9 - Maumalo, Edwards
Rd 11 - Ponga*, Ikuvalu
Rd 12 - Jax. Paulo, Moses
Rd 13 - Mansour
Rd 14 - D.Fifita
Rd 15 - Cook, Kelly
*Traded Ponga out and then back in.
So yeah, absolute carnage. Some players i had for a long time before they got injured like Katoa and Grant so thats not too bad but the injuries/other issues tto the likes of Capewell, Turbo, Best, Mitchell, Matterson, Ponga, Maumalo & Edwards hit hard. Then injuries/non selections to Paix, Clune, Niu, Stone really hurt my depth. Luckily my last 4 rounds of trade ins have been fine and ultimately my poor selection of cows hurt a lot so ill cop that...but jeez injuries really damaged my chances!
Im stuck with Luai as I don’t trust Robinson with Hutchinson staying in the halves for the whole gameJohnson out. fu**! I nearly put D.Brown in my 17 for him for this reason but changed my mind and now ill get a shitty auto emergency score...probably about 20 from the Hammer.
At least Rudolph is actually starting tonight.So in order to get a nuff & Cam Smith next week for E.Katoa and Rudolf, i need Rudolf to maintain his price or only lose a maximum of 5.6k
I believe that translates to a score of about 47. If he goes under that, it will completely screw up my trade plans.
