I don't want to hijack your thread, but want to talk Fantasy Draft *players*. Happy for suggestions from others that aren't in the forum draft league.
I am playing in a 20 man league. We are picking 1,1,1,1,1,1 + 6 reserves. We have a league imposed rule of only 1 hooker per team.
I am "lucky" enough to be pick 20 & 21 (snake order). My thoughts: by the time I get to my picks, all good and mediocre hookers will be gone. Whilst this is the smallest pool to pick from, and arguably the most important from a points perspective, because there's a 1 per team cap, I will get the same 'not-very-good' hooker whether they are my first pick or my last. I am thinking I am best of going for a top 3 player in two other positions, which should be on the board. Who do people suggest? I think forwards score more points than backs, on average?

Best bacrower you can get that's left as 1 pick...as for hooker maybe take a punt on Garvey or Havilli from the Raiders by the time your pick comes round..

I'd be happier for a live draft Sunday, as I'm not available at all Saturday.

Tried to do a pre draft, but the thing keeps flicking back to the first page for some reason.
Yes Dave ..I am having the same issue have sent an Error report o fan hub..

I am leaning toward changing it to Sunday if this issue is not resolved...what time suits...?
It would have to be pretty early as I start work at 11.00am and wouldn't be home until around 11.00 pm assuming everything goes well at work
Well i can see that we cant
Please everyone.

I will wait for a few more entrants to respond..the issue accessing the pre draft is unresolved at this stage...that would be unfair to Dave as he hasn't had theopportunity to set up list up.

It would also be unfair to you to select Sunday although
Eb would probably do it better..

Same time on the 24th is fine if that helps , just this particular Sunday I can't arrange a swap

I don't know too much about this , but if all 12 players agreed could we all autofill ..........

Would even things out and probably be fairer in a sense :idea:

Do we know who will be their (Canberra's) starter/favoured, or are they like Souths deciding between Farah and Cook still?

The issue with accessing the Pre-Draft List hasn't been resolved..it keeps going back to the League log in page..is this an issue for others?

therefore the draft has been put off until next weekend most likely Saturday the 24th..time to be decided..

Place your preference below..

Geo. 6pm NSW 5pm QLD
Dave 3pm NSW..

OK NRL fan hub are about as helpful as happy in the kitchen in resolving the pre-draft issue..

As a back up I've created WTF Draft 11...Invite code JDK2DKJ7

Can you join that as well as it appears to be working as normal...All conditions remain the same..

At this stage looking at Sunday the 25th for the draft or the following weekend as Harvey suggested..

Hey champion Geo, just a quick question: if we all join the 2nd WTF Draft comp (as above) what will happen to the first one - will we have 2 comps or will the first one be cancelled?
