I'm not at all confident.

Radley was a huge loss his emergency replacement player averages are in the 20's. May earning 16 points would have been better off staying at home.

The Chin will need to score around 160 if I'm any chance.

This fantasy League has taught me I would hate to be a coach. You sign what you believe are quality players who turn out to be duds add injuries and you face a rapid decline towards the bottom of the table.

Still, I am really enjoying it.

It's a good way to increase our knowledge of the modern game.
Some players cost clubs a mint but don't score well in fantasy.
There are attacking sides left and right or up the middle and edges. Depending on the game plan your marquee centre, or fullback may catch a cold.
I still reckon your in a good spot to beat me because we have similar players and you have the chin. He'll score high 100+ depending how he plays after a spell due injury.

I've got this one in the bag Nutz. All that has to happen is for the NRL to cancel the rest of the games and maybe all your players get chicken pox just to be doubly sure.
It was exciting for a while there.

Ha ha, you crack me up mate.
Yeh I gotcha Ned, it was a close struggle but good looks won in the end ;)

@Iamback Gee guys, Hairy Hamburgers is given us a lesson this week, he should get 900+ which is where we all need to be.
Iamback, is Hairy in your Panthers forum? If you know who's who, can you invite them here for a chat and get to know them?

Well done Blueb&lls (1st) Hairy (2nd), good scoring. Maybe you two should marry, combining your nicknames would be interesting;)

Ned's lads are up against Kinghippoz this week and I'm predicting a super close game.

I hope the Lads can lift this weekend. We need a win badly.

Geez Ned, 212pts for Crichton, I think that's the highest for a captain in our comp this year, well done. I had him but not as capt.

Amazing stuff for sure.
I part signed him after seeing how well he was going in your team.

I would have been confident of a win this week but I lost Appi, Radley, Cleary then Arthurs and Grey apart from a decent player or two who where dropped from their team.

I still think I'm a chance of my first win in ages but it will be close.

Well done Ned for winning the round. I hope for your sake and mine that Angus doesn't make the SOO side ;)
I don't know how I'm leading our comp but as the infamous Woods saying goes, "It is what it is" :)

Maybe I have some kind of mental block when it comes to understanding rules.

This is my first year of staying with fantasy league past round four so how many trades and when has never been an issue for me before.

I want to know if you don't use all your trades before round 19 do they carry over for the rest of the season?
I asked the NRL fantasy league for help and they sent me the following which hasn't helped me at all.

"Before your season begins you can make as many Trades as you like when picking your initial squad of 21, but once a lock-out arrives you are then limited to a maximum of two(2) trades per week from R1 to R7, three(3) trades per round from R7 to R12 and four(4) trades maximum for R13 onwards.
You can make a maximum of 44 trades for the entire season, with a maximum of 36 trades available until the end of R19 and eight(8) more available from R20 onwards."

Can someone put this in a simple way I can understand?

Nutz, I asked my Grammar and she said it was a real rigmorale.

Mate I've never seen that info before ha ha. Once you use all your trades that's it I fink. Last year I had none left with a few games to go and I think in the last couple of games I had 13 scoring players left :) I scored 300ish points ha ha.

Good on you Nutz, sitting at the top of the ladder all by yourself. Well done!

I'm hoping the Lads have turned thing around and experience more success leading into the finals.

I had no idea fantasy league would be so much fun. I'm loving it.
