What’s your key Toyota NRL Dream Team trade for the week: 

Robert Bruns - Whatever you do just trade in Jeff Robson, he’s under $200,000 and he is available in hooker and halfback.

John Gibbs - Have traded out Ben Te’o who is currently coming off the interchange bench, and in his place have recruited the skills of Bulldogs second rower Dene Halatau.

Brad Fittler - Have managed to bring in highly consistent forward Josh McGuire after trading out Justin Poore, had enough cash in the tin left over from previous weeks!!

Trent Barrett - Traded out Parramatta’s Cheyse Blair and brought in Rabbitohs winger Andrew Everingham at the bargain price of $77,100.

Joel Caine - Working on my backline, have finally managed to trade out the injured James Tedesco and jump on the Billy Slater bandwagon!

David Middleton - Sticking with Cameron Smith as my skipper. Traded out Scott Geddes and brought in Wests Tigers Matt Groat who is coming off the interchange against the Rabbitohs.

Lone Scout - Reece Robinson's made a great start to his career as Josh Dugan's understudy, and will make plenty of cash in the next month or so. But I've kept it simple and brought in the super-human Paul Gallen.
