I promised you this week I would look at Gold Coast players, and I am not one to break my promise. So I have dived into the depths that is Gold Coast’s list and unearthed some players who could help guide you through the bye rounds.
I shouldn’t have to say this, but don’t trade out Nat Fyfe.
Max Gawn and Brodie Grundy go head to head in the Queen’s Birthday clash between Melbourne and Collingwood, and it also represents a great cause. All donations are tax deductible and a donation as little as $1 helps, so get around the campaign and laugh with us all as we watch all 18 coaches go down the slide into an ice bath.
I’ve put my money where my mouth is, and I’ll be donating $100.
Back to the cheat sheet though, I’d like to hear from you!
​Should I continue to recommend ruckmen, or what else should I put there?

    I’m considering trading Dusty this week if the carnage is as bad as I’m expecting. Should I consider Lyons? Or just pick up a Buddy/Gray/Menegola?

  2. hedski says:

    Billings finally omitted!!!
    And Tim Smith (boo).
    Good on ya Damo, great cause.

  3. neil Dees 4 premiers says:

    Great st time offuff Damo and wonderful cause too.Dusty to Selwood for me just think Dusty will take more Cheers NDD

  4. neil Dees 4 premiers says:

    Bloody laptop GREAT Stuff damo and wonderful cause too Dusty to Selwood for me NDD

  5. Defying_Madness says:

    2 donuts for me yummy. about 7 players out this week who I thought would be playing come last week

  6. iLoveNMFC says:

    Thoughts Community?
    Play 18:
    Option A- Triple downgrade Ridley, Cumming and Dom Barry to Ahern, Heron and Mihochek?
    Option B- Downgrade Cumming and Barry to Ahern and Heron and upgrade Dusty to Oliver/Kelly/Westhoff?
    Play 17:
    Option C- Downgrade Cumming and Barry and upgrade Fritsch to Walters/Buddy?


  7. Marty says:

    Carnage…Fyfe Laird Cogs Dusty T Smith …how many players do we all have on field now?

    • Defying_Madness says:

      I have Ridley as well so am left with 16. Spread out my premos across all the rounds so now the weak coaches who didn't prepare for byes and have a tonne of round 14 players will be laughing. Oh well this game is all luck anyway

    • BlueBaggerJosh says:

      17, could trade Martin to make it 18 but not sure if i should or if its necessary. Fyfe, Laird, Cogs should all be short term (not sure about Laird) but apparently martin might be out until round 15.

    • Ohh dear says:


    • Steeeve says:

      I can get to 18 if I trade out two players with negative breakevens. Sigh.

    • Ahmad rubas says:

      17 before trades should be able to field 18 this week I'm already short for rounds 13 and 14 which is a good sign

  8. neil Dees 4 premiers says:

    Billings has been dropped

  9. The King says:

    Thought this was meant to be the easy bye round. Laird, Fyfe, Martin, Coniglio all out will hurt almost everyone.

    • fono says:

      …and rookies Tim Smith and Jordan Ridley…ouch!

      I'm officially screwed :/

    • theRealPod says:

      Think of it this way. Just about all teams will suffer in at least one of the bye rounds, maybe all of them. Try to lessen the damage as much as you can even if all previous plans are scrapped. You might need to burn maximum trades but remember the other guy is in the same boat.

  10. TommyC99 says:

    So no Fyfe, cogs, Laird, Ridley, Tim Smith, Dusty and billings, plus all the rounds 12 bye players. Completely ruined my trade plans and thought I was alright at the start of the week when I counted 20 playing players. Now doubt I’ll get 18 on the park. God I love SuperCoach,

  11. SCWars94 says:

    Dont know about all you guys but im not even bothering with round 12 😂. What a f#cking disaster!!!

  12. johnno2908 says:

    Well…What a c*nt of a round this has turned out to be.

    • Griggsy says:

      Have 13 before trades. Carefully plotted but didn’t count on no Fyfe, cogs, Dusty, Laird, Smith, Ridley! Absolutely rooted

  13. JEL says:

    T Smith listed as omitted, not injured?

    Scraping to put 18 on the park this week with 3 premo holes in the team

    • Steeeve says:

      Think I'm going to have to flick him. It hurts but he ain't playing for at least the next two weeks. I'd planned to move Spargo on but I need warm bodies. Smith out R Gray in.

  14. seen_burns says:


  15. Russty_ says:

    You'd have to think Dusty would be telling Coach he'll be staying in NZ for 2 weeks to 'heal up his calf soreness' right?..and then the bye.
    I'm sure he could still get to all the Bikie parties in a wheelchair.

  16. MEK says:

    Billings to Westhoff or should i do Henry or Ronke instead

    • The King says:

      Billings to Hoff, or any Port FWD is a good trade

    • redherringfc says:

      I was holding Billings for the Suns game, but I doubt he’ll only be out for 1 week.

      If Richo has lost patience with him, so have I.

      Kept trying to avoid the Hoff, but this week has been brutal. I think I need him now.

  17. Neverweaken says:

    Every year I plan my byes. Hold players to cover byes. Accept some losses knowing I have good bye cover.
    And then the SC Gods punish me for daring to plan for the byes. Lesson learned I think. F*ck the byes. Get who you want when you want.

    • Russty_ says:

      Agree mate, you can try to plan ahead for this game but then this happens, worst case scenario is you lose all 3 but still finish ok in your Leagues cause you have the team you want, not with 3 or 4 guys you didn't really want.

  18. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    any idea on how long dusty will be out for? Above, shake and bake said he wont be back until rd 15, but on an article i read the coach seems to think it'll be a one week injury. If he's out for a while i might go to phillips

    • The King says:

      I'd still hold him if he's going to be back round 15, especially if you can field 18 this week and next.
      For me, it would only be worth the trade if there was a 110 av GC or Port mid to bring in and you avoid a donut

    • Russty_ says:

      I reckon the real question is Aurora…how long does he need off to be able to get his head back in the game, his desire to do his best, which includes tackling etc.

    • Shake_n_Bake_ says:

      Did hear an interview saying if it is a calf the most likely scenario we wont see him till after his bye. But maybe its just like others are saying needs a break.

  19. George S says:

    Given that the Saints expect to have Carlisle, Gilbert and perhaps Brown all available in 1 week, does that mean Logan should be steered clear off- particularly given the negative appraisal given by his coach this week.
    There are similarities between T. Smith and Logan- rookies who scored really well in the first 2 games and were considered "must-haves". We all know how that worked with Smith- a lowly 26 points and then dropped the week after.

  20. BrownlowBoy says:

    I now have an excuse to trade Jack [email protected]#$%^& Billings

  21. George S says:

    From the AFL website……..
    The Tigers expect Martin to return to Australia on Sunday or Monday and start preparing for the game against the Cats.

    • George S says:

      Although (playing devils advocate, and dabbling in conspiracy theories) who recovers from a calf injury by taking a 3 hr each way flight, allowing the hamstring and calf to tighten up further? It does sound suspicious- perhaps he just needed a mental break

  22. Havin a crack says:

    I’m fielding 6 so-called premo’s
    and a had full of blokes I don’t even know how to pronounce their name correctly.
    I’m now thinking stuff my rank
    stuff my league wins
    Keep my 3 precious trades
    And have a punt on the pony’s for 3 weeks

  23. Rocksta_ says:

    OMG, before trades I have 13 eligible players down from 20 forecast last week.
    SC Gods, I give up. You have well and trully fkd me!

  24. MEK says:

    Should keep Ronke or tarde him and should i get rid of Murphy this week

  25. Shake_n_Bake_ says:

    Had 8 players playing in my fwd line now with Billings and Smith out makes it easy who to bench!

  26. Doc_1 says:

    Need 3 forwards to round out my forward line.
    (Already have Walters, Sicily, Dev Smith).

    Best 3 to complete it with (irrespective of bye week)?
    Gray, Heeney, Buddy, JJK, McLean, TMac

    Have Taranto as my M9/F7 swing.

    • Havin a crack says:

      Heeney, McLean then toss of a coin, jjk and gray have the easier games come sc finals if that helps

    • Lazza says:

      I think you need 3.5… under my system DSmith is sub-premo..
      I’d suggest McLean, TMac, Heeney and consider The Hoff as a replacement for DSmith.

    • Sc_Wow says:

      D Smith is fine as f6 mate

      • Doc_1 says:

        Agreed, particularly if I can loop Taranto’s score with him. (Assuming all mid premos playing).

      • Lazza says:

        I’d rather have Buddy .. DSmith ok at F7 instead of Taranto.. if ya gonna loop IMO you need a player with a high ceiling.. neither Smith or Taranto fit that mould..

      • Lazza says:

        Your earlier discussion (other threads during the week) around JJK also would play to this scenario.. and provide some cash for the upgrades.. I’m Thinking seriously about JJK as my F7, having him and Buddy as my loop options. (I already have Buddy).

        • CaptainObvious says:

          With Darling gone for 6-weeks JJK is now the go to fwd at west coast again. He's still a bargain for next week and everybody should get him.

      • Jack says:

        I agree Wow, I'd almost back him to outscore Hoff from here on in. Even if he doesn't it will be such a small amount it won't justify a trade and cash

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      Out of that lot I like McLean, Heeney who I have and Buddy. I'm trading in Hogan this week as a value pick, since I think he will end up in the top six fwds. That will leave me with Buddy still to get after the byes.

  27. WTFoxtrot_58 says:

    3 trades this week and still 5 non players on field. ..
    Think I might go and sandpaper my balls in readiness for the next cricket season…gotta be more fun!!
    Anyone know where I can get some cheap 120 grit??

  28. Marty says:

    I would appreciate some thoughts from our wonderful community.

    Weighing up worth v risk for this round. Ranked in the 900's I'm thinking of Martin to Menegola and Ridley to Austin. Both sideways trades which are against my SC rules but this round will catch many people out and the thought of a much higher ranking is tempting. Allows me to have 18 players in field. Gives me 3 players still for full premo but after trading I will have 12 trades left. Plenty of cash generation though with Holman, Guelfi, Higgins, Spargo, Langdon.


  29. Connor says:

    My list of INS vs OUTS (non-bye players):
    IN – M. Crowden

    OUT – D. Martin, S. Coniglio, N. Fyfe, R. Laird, J. Billings, J. Ridley, T. Smith

    And this was meant to be the easy one…

  30. BrownlowBoy says:

    With some of those onfield being Murphy, Spargo, Langdon – doesn't fill me with confidence!

  31. Rivo says:

    Dodged a bullet this week but trading to lock in 19 playing..

    Out: Keefe, Spargo & Murray;
    In: Austin, Ahern & T-Mac.

    Murray on extended bench and taking the punt on Ahern.
    Good luck community. It’s going to be a bumpy ride!

  32. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    Thats it im moving into a cave till the byes r over!
    What a whitewash!
    And @ARK ESSENDON [email protected]@@@!!!!
    Mutch and now Ridley. Bye planning so thought would select 2 rd 13 rooks rather than Ronke and Rice.
    Lesson learnt select the best rookie and the byes can get stuffed. 🖕

    Gr8 bye planning so had 18-20 each 3 rds just gone completely out the window.

    R we trading Crusty? Ahhhhhj 😱

    • Russty_ says:

      I'm thinking about trading Dusty Trigga, stuff him, not even trying and dropping so much from what I paid, and now we find out he's injured?…stuff him!, he can go to his NZ Bikie parties and I'll get someone in who does care about their Footy.

    • Shake_n_Bake_ says:

      I play you Trigga l think in Rat pack. Fielding 18 myself l hope without anymore late surprises!

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      I didn't worry about the byes, traded in Ronke and Rice on the bubble, didn't get either of Mutch or Ridley.

  33. Sam says:

    Pick two out of westhoff, boak and walters!! I already have gray

  34. Swans2012 says:

    thats it I'm doing it one last time, for old times sake and for what he's done for me in the past,

    Welcome aboard Gary, Gary bloody ablett welcome to the team

    (And my season is pretty well shot anyway so might as well throw a bit of Gary into the mix!)

    • theRealPod says:

      With the negative opinions of some in the media he could easily hit some old Gaz form. Might be a brilliant move. I'm just hoping he stays fit for the rest of the year and helps get the Cats to the finals.

    • Russty_ says:

      Good luck mate, don't think he's been this cheap for quite a few years, hopefully he holds together for ya!

    • redherringfc says:

      Don’t do it.

      The gods will punish you.

    • FotherMuckers says:

      The little Master is really starting to hit form. Meters gained means his hammies seem ok, overhead marks says his shoulder is ok and higher number of tackles backs that up. I'm with you. He is worth the risk of 2 trades to get him in and then replace him if necessary through injury. His price will justify the trades if he holds up for a few weeks.

  35. KSinny says:

    Flicking Dusty this week, thinking of getting either Treloar, Phillip's or Duncan. Who should I get out of these 3 or should I get someone else?

    • Russty_ says:

      Treloar's been very solid, Phillips too, Menegola's been good too and is cheaper but with a couple of spuddy scores chucked in there.
      Phillips is looking like a gun lately though playing on the wing. Treloar probably the safest choice.

    • Sunshine says:

      I’m flicking Dusty too. I can see him having a longish rest with a ‘calf twinge’.
      Is Josh Kelly out of the question? He is two games back, lots of possessions but efficiency down thus his high BE (135) but so was T. Kelly and look what a good score last week did to that.
      I am assuming he is over his injury!

    • Swans2012 says:

      Duncan is a cracking pod, rarely plays bad,but I like gary, but that's more just so I can say Gary is in the team one last time. Only so many points to go around at feeling though…..

  36. Kanga says:

    11 premos out this week and currently fielding 14 before any trades.
    Time to pack this SH!+ in.

    Might let things role until Monday and if in a position to win the league matches I might trade in Oliver and Hogan.

  37. Ahmad rubas says:

    17 playing this week before trades feeling kinda lucky
    4 defenders
    5 midfielders
    2 rucks
    6 forwards
    Is midfield the weakest spot for most teams this week?

  38. Jack says:

    Imagine at the start of the year someone told you the planned on 'upgrading' dusty to Phillips.

  39. Gem says:

    166K – 16 Trades – Really appreciating your trade advice this week. Much appreciated
    DEF: Laird, Simpson, Shaw, L Murphy, Doedee, Sicily, (Cole, Yeo)
    MID: Rockliff, Danger, Spargo, E Phillips, Cogs, Petracca, Brayshaw, Holman (Fyfe, Titch, Dusty)
    RUC: Gawn, NicNat (Olango)
    FWD: Heeney, Maclean, Buddy, D Smith, Guelfi, Fritsch (Billings, T Smith)

  40. Rick Grimes says:

    This is the time to stay calm community. Looks like everyone is In a similar position, so don't make any rash trades you'll regret in a couple of weeks. A good captain choice or a clever upgrade will be the key this week. Not sure sideways trading of premos is the strategy to employ. Just my opinion.

  41. HumanBob says:

    Gosh damn poo!
    Even after trading in 3-500k+ players I've only got 17 on field this week.
    Thanks Messrs Fyffe, Laird, Coniglio

  42. Sharknado says:

    Do I trade Spargo or Tim Smith out, was initially going to trade spargo but after carnage that'll only leave me with 17. Have 18 if I get rid of Smith, do we see Smith returning for r14?

  43. Hobart says:

    Someone mentioned earlier that he was trading Dusty for Kelly, GWS. He is certainly a POD being in only 7% of teams. Surely he is over his injury. He could go berserk against GCS this week. My only concern is how much did he depend on Mummy last year although his games before injury were good.

  44. Murray says:

    Absolute carnage this week. I went from 21 players on field to 13. I am also now needing to burn a couple of extra trades than I wanted. With my 277k cash I was thinking :
    Out coniglio, Garlett (carl) and Ridley
    In T McDonald, Austin and rance ( I am 2k short of getting Walters)

    If I wanted Walters I would need to trade L Murphy but low and behold he is playing. I suppose the question I have is Murphy ia warm body on the field and is Murphy and rance points going to be more than Walters?
    What would you do?

    • Randomcliche2 says:

      Sacrifice a weeks score and get your team right. May not be double up with only $277. Perhaps consider building a bigger bank for next week with a rookie over Rance. There will be some better post bye players to pick up. Gray cheaper than Tmac, allow rance up to walters? just a thought without seeing team.

    • Sc_Wow says:

      If you’re up there for rank trade your ass off. If not then hold I guess

  45. JugHead says:

    Need a quick reality check. Is it crazy to brong T kelly back in?

  46. Russty_ says:

    PATIENCE, can be a virtue fellas, those of you with less that 15 trades left, thinking about burning 4 to 6 trades in the next 3 weeks to get through the byes, and win a couple of games instead of losing them, I'd say, unless you are in with a real shot of winning the whole thing, try to be conservative.
    If you have accepted the reality of your situation, (that Leagues are all you have left to play for) then maybe try to last the season by not overtrading.
    You can't win any League Finals if you have no trades left, in fact, you will slide way down the ladder fast and have no chance of winning if you run out of trades…and then you will be in a world of shit, and not like Supercoach very much towards the end of the season.
    So, Patience is my advice…cause it is a marathon, not a sprint, and patience can pay dividends, if you're prepared to wear a few losses along the way of your journey to number one in your League. 🙂
    If you can exercise abstinence,from trading, when everyone else is, and have some in reserve for when 2 of your premos go down before your grand final, you could end up winning it all in your League and getting the ultimate bragging rights.

    I tried this strategy last year and won 6 out of 10 Leagues and also ended up ranked 1500 or so…good enough for me. 🙂

  47. Tommo says:

    What to do? What to do?

    Def: Laird Simpson Hurley Sicily Lloyd Doedee (Mirra Ridley)
    Mid: Fyfe Danger Cripps Bont Dusty McLean Dow Brayshaw (Clark Phillips O’Connor)
    Ruc: Gawn NicNat (Cameron)
    Fwd: Buddy Heeney Gray Fritsch Ronke Guelfi (Smith Spargo)

    15 trades 619k left

    Yes I know I am way behind in upgrading but am not sure what to do this week and am completely stuck after team announcements

    • Randomcliche2 says:

      I'm not counting many green lights. Try get some more while building/upgrading s.t. cash in hand. I'd go Austin, Rocky and Walters/Hogan/Boak s.t. other byes haven't counted. Outs perhaps Mirra, not going to get a game, Tim Smith, dropped and Dow? Haven't added it up…see if works. Cheers

  48. Josh says:

    I officially Quit supercoach

    N. Fyfe
    J. Macrae
    T. Mitchell
    P. Cripps
    A. Gaff
    S. Coniglio
    Z. Merrett
    D. Martin

    1 out of my 8 out i could cover for 4 of them but not 7!!!!!!!!!

  49. TommyC99 says:

    So finally trading billings this week. Grab Buddy, Gray or Hoff?

  50. SC_Sixty6 says:

    18 on field this week. 6 rookies 12 premos. Laird and Fyfe out that weren't going to be for Rd 12.

    10 trades left and Dusty I goneski! 17 premos next week on field and week after 14 premos on field. Looking good and even after this week's carnage still managing to field enough players.

    • Russty_ says:

      I wish you luck mate getting through the rest of the year with 10 trades left now. Hope it works out for ya, but if it doesn't, make sure you hang around, cause there's a lot of blokes who'll want a piece of you haha.
      Best of luck going forward! 🙂

      • SC_Sixty6 says:

        Haha. You worry too much Russty! Plenty of trades mate. Do this year in year out.

        I'm sure people want a piece! My plan is to walk the walk. Confident on how my team is shaping. Goodluck to you in the byes.

    • Marty says:

      Similar numbers with 11 premos. Captain choice will make a huge difference.

    • Derek says:

      I’m getting rid of Coniglio before Dusty.

      Coniglio was always a sub-premium. Where Dusty is still top 8 mid.

      Tossing up between Crouch and Kelly, prob go Crouch.

      • SC_Sixty6 says:

        Although cogs has scored better than Dusty overall thus far…..each year is different.

      • Defying_Madness says:

        Last two weeks Cogs looked very good with Kelly in the side. He was going huge last week until the concussion. I hope it doesn't come back to bite you

        • JohnDJ59 says:

          I'm keeping both, but I guess Derek could be thinking about how players coming back from concussion have gone, thinking Lloyd last year and Merrett this year.

  51. Marcus says:

    Im thinking I might just hold Dusty this week, then if not named next week just trade him to a mid thats already had their bye
    Gives me another week to assess and wont lose any points out of it

  52. Jeffrey says:

    McDonald or Menogola? Byes no factor in decision just long term best keeper as a lock in forward top 6

  53. James says:

    Any suggestions for trades got 15 left and & $91k. Got no clue who to trade this week pls help. Already done Murphy to Austin so far.

    DEF: Laird Yeo Sicily Hurley Simpson
    Doedee (Cole Murphy)

    MID: Fyfe Cripps Titch Danger Martin Cogs Zorko Holman (Spargo Brayshaw Phillips)

    RUCK: Gawn Martin (Cameron)

    FWD: McLean Heeney Menegola Fritsch Henry Guelfi (Smith Keefe)

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      Your team looks alright, since you don't have a lot of cash, you can't really upgrade and the best rookies don't get to the bubble until after this round, I would sit tight till the next round, the trade you have done, is good enough. PS if you don't want to hold Dusty, you could get Oliver or Crouch in.

  54. Trades says:

    Is rockliff going to be tagging ROS?
    If so I can get in Ablett, Zorko or menagola

  55. George S says:

    May I ask what people think of Callum Moore's & Heron's job security? Sick of bringing in rookies who make a bit of money then get dropped well before they ripen

  56. noah says:

    Is Henry and Barry for Austin and Hogan a good trade?.

  57. SCWars94 says:

    Hey guys not sure what to do atm:

    Laird, Yeo, Simpson, McGovern, Crisp, Duman (Murphy, Keefe)

    MaCrae, Fyfe, Dangerfield, Cripps, Merrett, Crouch, Mitchell, Holman ( Spargo, Barry, Phillips)

    Gawn, Nankervis

    Heeney, McLean, Westhoff, Sicily, Billings, Fritsch (Guelfi, Smith)

    14 trades and 179k

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

      Looks like you may need to triple down or at least dbl down to generate the war chest into half a million ready for next week to inject premium quality into your side.

      • SCWars94 says:

        Who would you downgrade and who would you bring in?

        • SC_Sixty6 says:

          Judging by your side rd 13 is a walk in the park for you so I'd downgrade billings and duman to playing rookies or just downgrade duman to heron and upgrade billings to a rd 13 premo.

          You're pretty light in defence this week. Could even trade billings. Swing Sicily up fwd and get premo back and heron in.

          Edit… Sicily already fwd. Just get some backs in.

          • SCWars94 says:

            I am thinking Murphy to Heron and Billings to JJk for next week. Leaves me with 205k and 15 playing this week. In all honesty I am not even bothering this week haha just to much carnage

  58. Daniel says:

    Who should i trade out for gray this week out of mirra and billings?

  59. Whitey says:

    I think my plan for the rest of the year is to be out of trades in 5 weeks, have a mint looking side and then watch everyone get injured. What a year it has been. Still love SC though.

  60. HoffGolas says:

    Hoff or Menegola to average higher for the remainder of the year?

  61. Jesse says:

    I have 540k & 16 trades.
    My team is as follows. Would love any advice!

    Def: laird, Hurley, Sicily Webster hibberd rice (naughton murphy)

    Mid: danger dusty mitchell Fyfe oliver cogs westhoff Holman (Phillips spargo brayshaw)

    Ruck: Gawn & nicnat (olango)

    Fwd: heeney McLean D.smith fritsch ronke guelfi (T.smith Henry)

    Fwd line is light but will swing hoff fwd when the times right & grab two premo mids… feel like I am sittting okay with cash and trades. Everyone put ya two bob in please.

      Nice looking team. I counted 20 for this week which is very solid. After this week I'd go Murphy to Yeo, Guelfi to Kennedy and maybe target Macrae when he comes down a bit

  62. Murray says:

    Horan or Walters ?

  63. Murray says:

    Hogan or Walters?

  64. BadgerHoney7 says:

    well… dusty, laird, billings, smith, fyfe. all 5 of them i expected to play

  65. tommy the dees man says:

    up the dees, tom mcdonald for brownlow

  66. SCrhino says:

    bringing in walters or menengola this week to cover for this round… walters is a bit injury prone but cheaper.
    who should i bring in to my side considering i will be good for rnd 14 bye?

  67. ATLfan says:

    I need a premo defender or forward that’s less than 491k and is playing this round.

    Any suggestions? Was thinking Franklin (injury risk but proven), Hurley (High BE and will be cheaper round 14 or 15) or Boak (Good for byes but lower average)

    What do people think?

  68. Josh says:

    Mihocek ($102,400)
    Olango ($102,400)
    Austin ($159,700)
    English ($287,400)
    Cole ($279,100)
    Murphy ($208,000)

    leaves me with 450k to get two premos and JJk next week

  69. Ben says:

    Boys Smith is expected to come back yea

  70. John says:

    Anyone got any thoughts on Apeness's JS?

  71. aaron says:

    thoughts on :

    out: ed Richards and Charlie curnow
    in: heron and menagola

    was sitting comfortable this round with 20+ players, now have 14/15.. other rounds are looking a bit better..
    was hoping to keep richards through the byes but can't afford to this round, and curnow isn't delivering as much as I was hoping for in a poor carlton outfit

    • Steeeve says:

      Wait on Curnow and trade out a rookie who's not playing this week

      • aaron says:

        richards is my only non-playing rookie, the others Keefe (provides swing for Sicily), McInerney (not advantageous trading out at this stage as only ruck position), t smith (not enough cash generation)

        might be a good time to cull an underperforming player who realistically probably won't be a keeper at the end. im looking at curnow, Nic nat, coniglio or dusty..
        im probably going to trade Nic nat after grundys bye at some stage, and I think dusty will come good at the back end of the season, and coniglio, well he is averaging pretty good this season so I think he can stay for bit

    • prizza says:

      move curnow on, great player but not sc relevant just yet , swing in boak or something similar,

      • aaron says:

        fwd line currently: Heeney, gray, Boak, Sicily, Devon smith, curnow fritsch and Tim smith
        this week curnow to menegola
        next week fritsch to mcclean

  72. Shake_n_Bake says:

    Is there a risk of Laird being out till after his bye???

  73. Claire says:

    Is trading Dusty to J. Kelly a sideways trade?
    It gives me 18 on the field this week and suits my round 14 round bye.

  74. Sauso says:

    it was mentioned that Gray has a poor record against the Tigers. Who has tagged him in the past. I am thinking of VCing him into Danger. I usually go to Gawn or Grundy but they may nullify each other to 110.
    It is the worst SC week for VC/C IMO.
    Good luck because we will need it.

  75. Steve says:

    Who to get for Billings?

    Can get any Forward?

    Already have Heeney, Walters and Mclean

  76. Jack says:

    Heron vs Mihocek, who do we like?
    It would be for d8 with rice @d7 if that makes a difference

    • seen_burns says:

      Mihocek probably gets dropped Rd14. Not sure about Herons JS

    • Doc_1 says:

      I would take heron.
      If you’re looking at D8 it doesn’t really matter if they don’t play – can’t see either playing enough to make enough cash to warrant a trade.
      Gold Coast generally play later on the round for the rest of the season so Heron can possibly used as a loop option (or even D6 with rice in case of emergency).

  77. Steve says:

    Is Robbie Gray a must have forward?

  78. Josh says:

    Currently have 15 players out for the so called "easy" bye round and I'm very stuck with what trades to do
    I have 109 K in the bank
    Def: Laird, Yeo, Richards, Keeffe
    Mid: Fyfe, Cripps, Titch, Coniglio, Barry
    Ruck: Nic Nat, Olango
    Fwd: Sicily, McLean, Billings, T.Smith

    If I want to field a full 18 I would need to trade out 3 of these players but apart from Billings I'm struggling to justify trading any of them

    The rest of the team is:
    Def: Webster, Hurley, Savage, Hibberd
    Mid: Parker, Merrett, Walters, Holman, Brayshaw, Phillips
    Ruck: Gawn
    Fwd: Heeney, Higgins, Guelfi, Spargo

    • prizza says:

      Start with arseholing billings and barry ,, followed by keeffe who is doing nothing for you, the inn comment around here is warm bodies so maybe try , go early on ahern-dpp , boak dpp, or gray, and maybe someone like heron , two have had byes and the kid from north looks a likely type. f… the byes good luck.

  79. Defying_Madness says:

    Hey community not sure what to do this week, selections really hurt me

    DEF: Laird, Simpson, Yeo, Sicily, Ryan, Ridley (Murphy, Keefe)

    MID: Fyfe, Oliver, Cripps, Coniglio, Martin, Titch, Merret, Walters (Barry, Phillips, Holman)

    RUC: Grundy, Gawn (Olango)

    FWD: Heeney, McLean, Menegola, D Smith, Fritsch, Guelfi (Spargo, T Smith)

    I have 68,100 in the bank and 12 trades


  80. Stupid Coach says:

    Great work Damo. Another great cheat sheet. I have 22 on the field playing this week. I am thinking of not trading this week and saving them for next week when I am likely to have only 17 or 18 on the field. Would appreciate any advice on whether this is the right strategy as I have 14 trades and $169k in the bank. Team is:

    B: Laird, Ryan, Hurley, Savage, Doedee, Dunman, Yeo, Keefe
    M: Danger, Heeney, Parker, Martin, Cogs, Holman, Spargo, Phillips, Barry, Titch, Cripps
    R: Gawn, Nank, Olongo
    F: Buddy, Smith, Petracca, Henry, Guelfi, ZGL, Smith, Sicily.

    Planning to trade Doedee and Henry next week. Appreciate any thoughts/advice.

  81. prizza says:

    Surely guelfi or murray play to give me 18 .
    I pity the bye planners that thought they were sitting pretty.
    Only certainty is collingwood to give the demons another packet of tissues

  82. Saundo says:

    C on Franklin, Oliver or Gawn?
