With the large amount of injuries, suspensions, late withdrawals, many of us have been left scraping the bottom of the barrel this weekend.
In most cases, we couldn’t even help it.
So we were forced to cop a doughnut, and call on our lowest scoring reserve. Not an ideal situation, but it’s better than nothing.
Hands up if you have Tautau Moga sitting in your squad? The young Rooster had a shocker against the Titans, finishing with -4. So you thought that instead of simply coping a 0, you’d actually be losing points because of your reserve? WRONG!
I’ve consulted the Book of DT Laws (actually the Help & FAQ tab) and have found this gem.
“Please note, Substitutes that score greater than 0 are only used to replace the score of a non-playing player in your team.”
That means either Jack de Belin or Dale Finucane will earn a call up to my final 17, as both finished on 21 points, replacing Todd Carney (should have listened to NFI).
Thank you Moga for play so badly, you couldn’t even be used. Much better than scoring 1.
For the record, I shed a tear on Friday night when HBK Steve Michaels didn’t finish as the lowest scoring player, powering his way to a tremendous 17. Great effort, Stevie.
Did you need your auto-emergency? Who was it? Happy it’s not Moga? Sound off in the comments below.
