Latrell Mitchell playing fullback for Souths apparently.

Not sure how they can fit him under the slary cap but there you go.

My maths indicates that someone has to go in the Souths backline.

Adam Dhouli seemed to be doing very well. Dane Gagai and Alex Johnstone are good players.

Can't play 'em all.

Josh Addo-Carr wants to be a Rooster.

I'm looking for the requisite pre-season "Paramatta will win this year" article but apart from a prediction by Zero Tackle this will happen cannot find anything else.

Maybe....... :chin:

PP, can you put the starting odds on your initial post. Just pick anyone. This way people can see the fluctuations over the year.

PP, that could become an iconic opening photo image

As to souths salary cap, please enlighten us why Souths need to get rid of anyone to get Mitchell

Bennett no longer English coach.

Souths will be happy. No other distractions. They do have a very good team but need their halves to fire and go to another level if they want to be premiers. I still think they need one more solid forward to be competitive.

The big smokey are the knights. We have the players. Top 8 is the goal for us. I still think we are a quality back and forward to be a top 4 side. I am not sold on our halves and hooker combinations. I just think there is too much pressure on Ponga. We have too many journeymen for the past few years. We should bought more youngsters a few years ago.

They have a great looking backline and the best hooker.

Just wondering how the forwards will stand up against (say) Canberra's pack.

Very hard for a side to bounce back after a GF loss if no regular GF experience for a while. The Raiders do have a good side though.

I am more intrigued how Brisbane, Parra, Sharks, Panthers and Dragons go. The expectations will be high for them.

I was talking about your mob who have had to let Dhouli go (told ya they had cap problems signing Mitchell)

He was all ready to go to The Roosters but at the last minute Wests Tigers upped their offer and he will be there in 2020

I have it on good authority that Easts will be chasing Bronson Xerri when his contract is up at The Sharks and have made their interest known. He is worth far more than $500k per year on the open market.

Doueihi didnít leave due to cap problems.
He spat the dummy and didnít back himself. Iím glad heís gone but in saying that, stick him in your supercoach team if you do those things

You only get 2 picks for fullback. Thus you have Tommy T, Tedesco, Ponga, Papenhausen, Holmes, Tuivasa Scheck, Nicoll Klokstad etc to choose from.

It is hard as some named are very expensive too.

I came back to SuperCoach last year after a 10 year absence and I regretted even though I went fairly well.

You end up supporting players instead of bets and your teams. So no more this year.   :lol:

The key to everything is injuries, if you can stay injury free you'll go ok.

The Eels have got a settled line up, another pre-season under the belt of a few young blokes & have arguably traded up with RCG & Matterson coming into the pack.

I've got us pegged as a 4 to 6 side behind Easts, Storm & Souffs.

The Josh Reynolds saga has taken a very strange turn involving catfishing, fake pregnancies etc.
