    Round by Round review of the draft so far....

    Round 1

    1. The Half Back - Johnathan Thurston
    2. Hunter - Greg Inglis
    3. Benny - Cameron Smith
    4. Alex - Cooper Cronk
    5. Cloughie - Roger Tuivasa-Sheck
    6. Zakaron - Josh Reynolds
    7. Julian - Shaun Johnson
    8. Tartmaster - Ben Hunt
    9. Boobidy - Daly Cherry-Evans
    10. Rocks - Michael Morgan
    11. Lukic - Kieran Foran
    12. Ged - Todd Carney


    The first few picks were all pretty much on the money IMO top 3/4 went in order of my preference at least so they're all solid picks no one dropping the ball too badly but but no real standout steal as such


    Josh Reynolds at pick 6 :lol: you only have to look at the following picks tbh, other than that picking Carney so early stands out as a huge reach IMO seems to me Ged had himself set on a top class half missed that bunch and panic picked Carney who hasn't been world class as much as I've liked the bloke for a good few years

    Round 2:
    1. Ged - Anthony Milford
    2. Lukic - Aaron Woods
    3. Rocks - Matt Scott
    4. Boobidy - Corey Parker
    5. Tartmaster - Jessie Bromwich
    6. Julian - James Graham
    7. Zakaron - Adam Reynolds
    8. Cloughie - Jared Waerea-Hargreaves
    9. Alex - Jason Taumalolo
    10. Benny - Paul Gallen
    11. Hunter - Simon Manering
    12. The Half Back - Benji Marshall

    Best: standout steal for mine in this bunch was Graham, definitely in the top few props in the world and snagged halfway down the 2nd, I liked my Gallen pick but I'm biased too


    THB picking Benji so early, guys not lit the world on fire for multiple seasons even before his Super Rugby sojourn so that wins (loses?) this round - could be a bit of a recurring theme here but burning the first two picks on the Reynolds is pretty dubious.
  3. Julian BJ Taylor

    Agree so far pretty much. 2nd round was pretty solid the whole way through I think.
  4. Lukic L Popovic

    yeah walking away with Reynolds x2 after two rounds is a train wreck.
  5. Zakaron SDR Laing

    Yeah train wreck for sure.
  6. cloughie09 TJ Clough

    Yeah think both rounds went pretty much by the book
  7. Ged GEC King

    I regret picking the Milf and Carney with my two picks. Definitely needed one of the two but probably should have gone with a middle third gun for the other spot.
  8. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    Can't argue with the review so far.
  9. Rocks DN Boland

    My Dugan pick will be worst of the next round. Or whatever round it was.
  10. Julian BJ Taylor

    I actually reckon Benny's is probably the worst pick in round 3.
  11. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    Worst of round 3 would be Lyon and Dugan, IMO. Best of round 3 is a tough one.
  12. cloughie09 TJ Clough

    I think Moylan and Ferguson can fit into worst category, really early imo for them
  13. Lukic L Popovic

    Its gotta be radradra
  14. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    lolno. Fergo could have gone in round 2.
  15. Hunter AD Hunt

    :laugh: good one.
  16. cloughie09 TJ Clough

    The fact that he went 1 and 2 rounds befor SKD and Jennings is ridiculous imo and that's just guys that are better on his own team
  17. Alex AJ O'Driscoll

    Ferguson > SKD
  18. Julian BJ Taylor

    I'd take Ferguson over both of them if we're talking solely about what they can do on field.
  19. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    FMD you've got no idea.
  20. cloughie09 TJ Clough

    I know enough make my own opinion and I get paid for it so it's all good lol
