Hmm...not sure how I'm going to do in div II this season given half my squad is declining and I'll be including both my fresh U20s in my starting lineup...

@SmellyStuff I expect Carnage and Hautapu Hopefools to be a step above all and the rest be more or less at the same level. Welcome to II.2, a really difficult league, I am hoping I can manage to do a tad better than last season?

Whoooops!

3 comments for the first weekend:

- I am VERY happy to have won my game against Innocent Dingo's despite playing away from home AND despite having played a weak halfback in Calvin Courtauld

- What a result by @SmellyStuff . Not only a big win against last season finalists, but also shows that but for this "accidental" wnwim Old McDonald would have the best reporter summary stars in the league II.2

- @Activist is back in Aotearoa

And a bonus comment: What a team @Robelix is gathering in his Tongan affiliate. Last season his team was an easy target for my Samoan affiliate first, a tough opponent in the second half and a gallant WCC Plaque Masters loser to my main club at the end... This season his team is much better looking at the stats of their last game

I honestly don't understand how Laughing My team may have a decent average CSR but man is my squad top heavy and with 2 fresh U20s in there too! Also yay at Ranfurly Shield! Hopefully I can make a decent fist of it this time because I don't think I managed a successful defence back in the old days. Although I suspect that your actual grasp of tactics may mean my reign is just as short this time. Sad

Carnage destroyed me twice last season and you outplayed him away from home and wnwim... I don't think I can be the favorite in these conditions :S :S

I just broke Sparker's YA 48 game unbeaten streak. His last loss was S33 R8 (3rd Dec 2017) Shocked Shocked

Not like I did anything special either. My YA lineup is very average and it was on normal intensity away from home.

That winning strike is impressive.

It shows a total different approach to the YA. What does one want the YA for?
- to sell players and make money?
- to feed the seniors with quality players?
- to farm u20 players?

I would say managers like Sparker have their own ideas about how to use the YA but if I am not mistaken he only pulls players at 20 yo and keeps the best ones and TM sells the rest?
That is what makes his YA so strong on the field.
What would be interesting though, is to compare the amount of money he is getting for his youngsters and compare it to the money someone like @simon71 is getting (I admit I am guilty of paying Smile)

I will start fielding most of the youngsters for the second leg. It might mean a lot of games lost and eventually, the top spot lost (and the RS) and even the promotion. But to be honest, promotion is not a target, just yet.

Well my season has turned to shit after starting off with a bang haha.

Hopefully now with an injury free squad I might be able to win a few games this second half.
