    Trouble is he is a supporter not a generator of attacking raids. We desperately need a fullback able to break the D line and act as another half so our attack becomes much more potent. Gutho isn't that sort of fullback.

    Not sure how not signing a $100k player magically fixed their salary cap. They still have to sign a 30th player by 30 June and the min pay is around $100k. Funny how they were not cap compliant for the years before and after their gf but compliant for that year. Gee the NRL are a gullible lot.

    Gutho has 4 try assists so far (4th), top is Keary with 6 (and he has played an extra game and got a TA last night)

    He is leading ALL the fullbacks in the NRL for TA.

    He has 4 line break assists, top is 5. This puts him in the top 3 for LBA.

    BTW he is averaging 190m a game only behind RTS out of the fullbacks

    Yes but he's just not fat enough!

    His beep test score is too high, should be struggling to get to 8

    How can he expect to break any f**ken tackles or make any f**ken line-breaks if he's lean, fit, strong, and fast FFS??

    Realistically how many fullbacks going would you trade Gunco for?
    From round 4 team lists:
    Tedesco - yes but he isn't cheap
    Boyd - has experience but Gunco has him on everything else - maybe could suggest Isaako but he isn't setting the world on fire
    RTS - yes but not cheap plus is it just me or does he appear to be on decline?
    Gordon - no
    Edwards - no
    DWZ - no - weird that he played well for NZ though
    Mbye - no
    Trbgfhjsdflkjevic - yes but really the only difference is size and strength. Speed, ball playing, etc are probably about the same
    Johnston - no
    Martin - no. Who is Cows real fullback?
    Shiny Nickel Clockstand - no
    Bogan - no
    Moylan - better at some things, worse at others
    Hughes - no - realistically Drinkwater is their fullback who's an unknown as well
    Meaney - no
    Hoppa - no
    Ponga - yes
    Dufty - no

    A lot of merkins either severely underrating Gunco, or more likely overrating the fullback stocks in the comp. This isn't 5-10 years ago when half of the top players in the comp were fullbacks

    So Jerrod Condon on talkin sports said a broncos player who didn’t play last night because of injury may actually not have been injured and didn’t play because of some incident that may have happened last week. I’m guessing it’s the same player that is more Teflon than human

    Roberts?
    Condon also was super confident the Broncos would beat the Chooks last night. Second best bet of the round he reckoned.

    Lol.

    I like when people post a rumour, and then other, less intelligent people post a name...thus ensuring that rumour is inevitably deleted
