Thought I'd kick off the NRL Fantasy thread for 2021 as I couldn't see if one had been made. Apologies if it has.

Well, Reservoir Dogs have had quite the off-season. You think the Warriors have been busy? Folks, POS has been a lazy arse compared to me, I've signed a player, released that player to get some other player, next day resigned him etc. Must have done 30+ transfers so far, after doing an AutoFill to start things off. All in the name of trying to get that perfect 13. At the moment my strategy has been to have my eight man bench full of $228 players - some of which have been picked on the basis of some Aussie rag's "21 NRL Rookie's To Watch In 2021" article (which, you'll be floored and disgusted to know, didn't include any Warriors!), so they'll probably suck or go well for one game, then do an ACL or shoulder and be no Cash Cow. As I understand it, picks stop being UNL on Thursday night, so over the next few days I'll have to have that hard conversation with a few kids and tell a couple of "Marquee" players that they ain't all that so I have the dosh to pick some decent bench players and not be caught totally short.

As regards the Warriors, I've got Harris, Fonua-Blake, Maumalo and Frei, who might be one of those sacrifices as I can't honestly see him getting on the field soon. But you never know with Rd1 lineups...

Already booked the open-topped bus for the victory parade up and down my street.

Which fantasy comp is this? Sounds rather intriguing.

Would people be interested in nearly nrl comp? We used to have that ages ago on here.

An NRL Fantasy comp kabkram set up. There's 5 slots left out of 20.

nearly nrl looks interesting, but given my lack of ability at NRL Fantasy, which looks more simple, I might just watch any competition from the sidelines.

WOW!! Looks like it's going to be pretty competitive a couple of lads with scores over 900 in the first fricking week. No easing into this one peoples, I'd better get my act together.

Already debating whether to kick Angus Chricton to the kerb and transfer him out for a cheaper Middle/Edge MPP or just bench him as an Emergency and promote Butcher to his spot in the 13. No doubt the boys from NRL 360 will breathlessly report to you my decision at 8:30PM tonight. I expect Kenty to call me a peanut whichever way I go. :)
