I reckon it would take a brave person to select King in VNRL given that a forward can concede 4 points if they play for more 50 minutes in a game and have 18 or fewer involvements (and I don't think that includes tackles).

I can't remember too many games where King managed 18 hitups!

involvements would have to include tackles surely

hardly any forwards manage 18 hitups regularly, even BK would have fallen short

i would have taken him given that i cant guarentee enough props that will even take the park in any given week

Before bidding ended you could select a players name and it would give you the stats for 2006. Things like MIA (Missing In Action) Penalty, try's ect ect.

It would have been good to see how many MIA's king had last season.

Oops... i assumed that it was like sportal and only points scored mattered... oh well.

I didn't select any Manly players :eek:

I figured that being a manly forum that the players would be hot property hahaha so i steered clear... i would have taken Brett Stewart though and somehow fluffy ended up with him!! Fluff, i'll buy him off you for 900k? :lol:

Do you want to form a joint venture fluff???

I still don't understand how you got Brett Stewart?? There was alot of people bidding on him.... did you come in at the end and bid over the top of them??

I'm of the understanding you only got to pick up what was left and i find it hard to believe that Brett Stewart was left in the pile

He got him from me.

I had 800 000 on him for 2 days. Then when all my players were being taken I dropped him to 600 000 to free up some cash. Fluffy pounced and I had to drop him to keep all my other players.

Just looking over the VNRL teams... I am happy with who i have... but i think Toovs (the units) has down the best in terms of recruiting.

I was happy with my theory of spending nothing up front so i could have good outside backs... but since learning that it's not just about scoring points i might be in for a longer season than expected. In saying that i do have 2 front rowers that should play every week so we'll see.. but if i had of known it was in my best interest to get some hard working forwards i would gone for better ones... i just went for a cheap front row and then a back row that can get over the tryline. Hopefully it works out

Yeah i went a didn't track, i figure a good forward can get you a forward try every week, whilst good halves should ensure playmaker and involvement tries.

Backs are a bit hit a miss for mine

His problem may lye with Lyon not constantly being the teams kicker.

Darren Lockyer is a handy buy (obviously) but more so because last season he was brisbane's top try scorer.. not bad for a 5/8... i was bidding on him early but gave him up and got Benji a sight cheaper and he can score alot of tries too

nutz i made bids for 5 or 6 players, i only managed to log on with 10 minutes to go.

Brett stewart was the only decent bid i made

i was hoping there would be more leftovers i guess, only carney was decent, got gaz at a good price for later on if he makes it back at all.
