My first dip into the trading pool last round has made a world of difference, my result this week was 639, almost 100 more points than in Round 5. But that said, looking at the side there were still a couple of players who made no impact - Kalifa FaiFai Loa didn't end up playing for the Cowboys, and Neville Costgan also scored me a big fat zero off the bench. A disappointing score of 8 this week from Daniel Tupou too - although I'm confident he will come good throughout the season. I know I said this last week, but surely at some point soon he will start to shine!
So I'm making a few more trades:
Matt Duffie ($138,700) from the Storm was a good hope for me, but with that shoulder injury forcing him out until Round 13 means I just can't afford to hold onto him without getting any results.
Cronulla's Mark Taufua ($167,400) hasn't been scoring for me either from the Sharks. So I need to get some players who are about to make me an impact.
I'm going with the Bulldogs forward Tim Browne ($120,000) to bolster my bench- he won't get a run this week but he's one of my forwards to watch - and he's so cheap I couldn't say no.
Also, coming straight into my side is David "The Wolfman" Williams ($184,900). He's slowly returning to better form and I'm keen to see him start performing well - and averaging 23.2 points a round isn't too bad either.
On my bench, Neville Costigan is being dropped for Beau Champion to partner with Justin Horo, Nathan Fien and Ben Smith. Champion scored 33 last week and the Rabbitohs play Manly in what will likely be a cracker of a game.
My Eels boys Chris Sandow, Jarryd Hayne and Reni Maitua both stay in the side - and I think this week against the Panthers will see a good victory coming their way.
I think the Storm will go well against the Warriors too - so it's looking like I should be in for a few points this week!
Let's see how this improves this week - see you on the flip side,
