(Crusaders-power is what you needed)

Score last round: 384. That's more like it, a Crusaders-powered team (who feasted on the Bulls as suspected) was always going to do well this week. Obviously not everyone bought into that theory though as I moved up the overall standings hugely (up to 827), but I am still on the outside (looking in) of the top 10 in the RH conference.

In the Tight Forwards, all 3 of my guys got on the Board and scored around their average. Louw [27], Maling [33] and Maxwell [23]. Maxwell only played half a game unfortunately, as the result was out of doubt by half-time, fortunately he still got some work in. I'm selling Maling in favour of Humphries though, just because of $$ really, but also the Highlanders have a bye coming up.

Young AB Loosies Holah [26] and Mccaw [55] both had good games, but the difference was that McCaw got to run with the backs against the Bulls on a few occasions, and was rewarded with a try and some BD stats. They can both stay this week.

As usual the Inside Backs were big producers. Flatley [49] and Mauger [59] had huge games, and Holwell [27] was pretty solid in a relatively quiet game. Holwell and Mauger make way for Aussie superstars Burke and Mortlock this week, and both those guys will be keepers from here on in I suspect.

There was a lot of points to be had in the Outside Backs this week, unfortunately I only hit pay dirt with one of my guys, Leon MacDonald [72]. The other guy is still struggling to find the try line, and played in a game with 9 tries without getting one. Yes, sadly I had Wendell Sailor [13]. I'll keep him though, as the Bulls are coming to town for big Dell, surely he can break the drought. (I have said that before I know...). The other spot goes to Chris Latham, a hat-trick from him against the Bulls will fine thanks.

Let us know what you think!

And if you had a full team of Crusaders you could have scored close to 500 like I did!

You just don't learn do you Jules...
