Hey community, thoughts on my team

Wolves in Winter… 5 trades remaining … 8k …

DEF: Goddard, Heppell, Duffield, Gibbs, Goodes, Vlastuin (Terlich, Thurlow)

MID: GAJ, Pendles, Watson, JPK, Danger, Selwood, Fyfe, Priddis (Mitchell, Hrovat)

RUC: Nic Nat, Goldstein (Nicholls, Currie)

FWD: Walker, Cox, Johnson, Martin, Rockliff, JJK (Kennedy, Staker)

Trades this round: O'Meara –> Selwood, Jacobs –> Goldstein
Trades next round: Terlich (switching Staker to defense) –> Daniher
In upcoming weeks: Goodes & Vlastuin –> Hanley & Shaw

2 trades left for injuries … set team for the remainder of season + finals …


I like how you have gone all out trades to get your premiums. My thoughts, dont trade this round and keep those trades in the bank for later year and finals.


killer team


SAM you are halucinating,
there is no way you could have afforded the team you have mentioned from the start!!!


Team: Wolves in Winter
Overall Ranking: 3054

Look it up


its called getting money through players, Veg


Well he hasn't replied which means he looked up Sam's team and it was the same… well, enough to make him shut up!


Came 3rd for the round this week Jock. very excited.


roberton to birchall
d pearce to birchall

What do you guys reckon?




Keep Pearce…


Heres my team guys (discarding round 13 bye)
DEF: Goddard, Shaw, Birchell, Gibbs, Hartlett, Vlastuin (Colquhoun, Thurlow)

MID: GAJ, Pendles, Watson, JPK, Danger, Selwood, Swan, Crouch (Martin, Hrovat)

RUC: Cox, Maric (Nicholls, Currie)

FWD: Bartel, Franklin, Johnson, Zorko, JJK, Mcaffer (Rowe, Staker)

Crouch to Mitchell is a must. Which leaves me with 2 trades and $535,500 in the kitty.
My question is, is it worth bringing in players with a high breakevens?

Im thinking about trading
Mcaffer-Nic Nat
Vlastin/Thurlow-Hanly or Heppell
I can trade thurlow but itll put vlastin on the bench (too much coin?) or do i trade vlastin for one of them which will leave me with 200k to spend on my final midfield spot, which will happen when my 3 rookies jump up.


I also have 10 trades left


Younger going to have a bad round this week….. You only have two mids playing haha




No need to worry about this week when my squads set for the rest of the season mate


MaCaffer to Nic Nat is a good one can't argue with that….

I think Vlastuin to Hanley or Heppel is a good one and keep Thurlow as an Emergency mate… you have said above too much of cash sitting on the bench if you keep Vlastuin……IMO…..However I wouldn't be doing this trade this week since, Hanley has got high BE and will reduce bit more in price and Heppell has got a Bye this round…..I would probably wait for one more week for this trade…..



What are you planning when you start getting injuries later in the season? Save your trades!!


Jock, I disagree with your thoughts on chopping young Vlastuin and taking the cash. Now look, Vlastuin has an easy run in the next few weeks with doggies and saints. HOLD for a few more!


Agree, break even is around 60, his consistency should keep him going up in price for the next few weeks.




Might peak when Hanley bottoms out.


Managed 2033 (DT) this week… pretty happy


I managed about 1900 odd, how you going in eliminator?


Got knocked out a couple of rounds back when half of my team decided that under 80 was an acceptable score…


Ellis or Ibbotsen for Hooker? Leaning toward Ellis. Less $ and looked strong.

Or someone else for upgrade?


Hanley will look nice in a few weeks


Have Hanley. Been trying to trade Hooker for a couple rounds. Ugh.


Not convinced with either of them. Has all the trademarks of early season high-performing defenders that faded out & burnt most SC teams (aka Hartlett & Birchall).

Not many choices in defense apart from the usual suspects in Goddard, HepD, Shaw, Gibbs, (the good ol’ Guinness) Hanley & if you have got the cohanos Beau ‘Glass’ Waters or Jake (Smokin’ barrel gun) Carlisle. Most of these players in the same price range as Ibbotson.


Should be number 1 defender for remainder of season baring injury, if richmond form continues. Can't be, Wont be tagged


Birchall … Looked good friday night


I wouldn't say cut any players like O'Meara , Vlastuin or even Terlich , I got rid of O'Meara for Fyfe and since I did that O'Mearas scored 92 , and now 116 while Fyfe had his worst score of 77 + I got rid of Dwyer ages ago , as soon as I got rid of him he scored over 100 , My point is, one's like O'meara , Vlastuin and Terlich who are still scoring well you might as well keep in until they start playing poorly , O'mearas doing better than most of the premiums so why upgrade him and waste money when his doing better? same with Vlastuin a 79 that's better than Duffields 70 was it ? why would I trade out Vlastuin when his scoring better than Duffield ? bit pointless.


I'd only trade O'Meara if you need bye coverage or you're getting in a premium with a low BE.

Otherwise wait another round as he is set to go up next game.


seriously , its time to part with terlich and omeara, give vlastuin a couple more weeks to fatten him up and then slaughter him


Anyways here's my team so far ,
Bk: Goddard , Hanley , Hartlett , Birchall , Vlastuin , Terlich : (Thurlow , Docherty)
Mid: Ablett , Pendlebury , Swan , Deledio , A Swallow , J Selwood , Fyfe , Priddis (Mitchell, Hrovat)
Rk : Maric , Nic Nat (Nicholls, Currie)
Fwd: Cox , Franklin , Rockliff, Zorko , Macaffer , Lecras (Kennedy, Staker)
I have 8 trades left with 135k in the bank ,
thinking about using 2 trades then keep the 6 left for finals ,
Thinking of getting rid of Ben Kennedy for Daniher , why ?because 1 : even though Daniher has the bye , I'm not facing anyone hard this week so I could get away with it , and Joe is highly respected at Essendon and I figured he'd bring more bite then Ben Kennedy + his on the bubble after the bye , and the 2nd would be either getting rid of Lecras or Macaffer and putting in Dustin Martin , was going for Nick from the saints but I thought Martin looks a better pick , thoughts?


231k in the bank. Just Shaw, Swan and one more forward to inject into the team post bye until I’m complete. Who will that forward be? I’m not sure. Already have Walker, Bartel, Martin, Rockliff and Roughead as locks (Natanui in rucks). Who should I bring in?

Options would have to be Stevie J, Cox, Cyril, Tippett or even Goldstein or Minson.


Thinking about Ryder after the bye. Cheap now, and has been pretty consistent since his suspension. Just a thought.


put nic nat in the fwd line and bring in minson in the rucks. bad game last up. he is a monster


Great opening with the Bon Jovi there!

My biggest issue at the moment is my final midfield spot. Upgrading O'Meara, i'll either go Selwood this week for 490K or Watson next week for 550K. I'm leaning towards Watson though. It'll give me a midfield of Ablett, Pendlebury, Dangerfield, Kennedy, Mundy, Cotchin, Priddis and Selwood/Watson with Tom Mitchell and Kyle Martin on the bench.


Jobe seems the more surefire choice. Envious.


Yea, i'm leaning towards him the most. It'll cost me a big extra, but I think in the long run he'll be worth it.


Mos def. He's a proven gun. Sure in the back stretch his numbers will be more consistently 110+.


Whats the community think about Tippet?


Wait and see. Give him two games to see how he fits in. Will take that long to build chemistry.


he is a spud and there are better options out there than that ****


Nope. He's a boom or bust guy, he's capable of putting up huge scores 120+ scores, but he'll only do that once every 3-4 weeks. Otherwise he'll be hovering in the 70-80 range and sometimes down in the 40's as he is capable of going missing at times.

If he was coming in costing 250K-300K, I might warm to him, but at 470K, you'd be better off trying to find the extra $ elsewhere and getting a Roughead, Martin or Walker type.



Birch's Buddy

I have a general policy of staying clear of key position players. And that goes for even Nick Roo, who was very tempting this year.


He is always a wait and see prospect. I would wait for 2 matches and see what the swans midfield does for him. Also we have to wait and see what his break even will be.


Community, I have need of your help again. I have both Neade and Dwyer in the forward line and $253,600 in the bank. My thoughts are to trade Dwyer for Stevie J.
Next, as everyone will be wanting to do this week, that is trade in Mitchell from the swans. I would have to trade out one of my 3 mid/def players. Goodes or Vlastuin. I will not trade Gibbs. Jock and the Community any thoughts and advice?????


Vlastiun has a good run in next few weeks


Either good for Stevie J. I'd go with Dwyer too, as Neade's job security probably better.

Hmmm. Vlaustin still has a very low be so I'd go Goodes. But they both are solid and steady. Anyone else in Mids you can sacrifice?


The rest of my midfield after this weeks bye is : Gaz, gibbs, walker (carlton) kennedy (swans), barlow, omeara, zorko, bartel, rockliff and vlastuin. What's your verdict?
Neald is scoring poorly so he will have to go as well. I was thinking Joe Daniher and that gives me some cash back as well. So after these next 3 trades I will be left with 12 trades.


Very nice team. I'm bringing Daniher for Staker. Kid has been gaining confidence. Think he'll earn a spot. See him hitting a ton here and there. And Neade is a serial 75 pointer.


Maybe move walker into forward?


Yes my thinking as well, after reading many of the posts. Swap dwyer and Walker, sell Dwyer for Mitchell, then swap bartel with neade. Sell neade for Stevie J and then sell Mc Caffer for J Daniher. Or something like that. That will leave me with plenty of cash $300,000 plus and 12 trades. I will neade to make 2 trades this week. Both Collingwood players out for Mitchell and Stevie J.


Great podcast fellas !


Pulled the plug on Sauce Jacobs this week sold him for Mitchell (Blicavs back to ruck), O'Meara to Selwood and Hutchins to Birchall 11 trades left with 350k still have def – Thurlow, Saunders mid – Vlastuin, Crouch fwd – Macaffer, Staker, Kennedy to upgrade.
Goin to trade Vlastuin to Hanley and Macaffer to Danniher what do you think, any tips??


Sitting in the high 2000's ranking wise…Terlich to Birchall this week I'm thinking

Team will be:
Def:Shaw, Goddard, Heppell, Birchall, Goodes, Vlastuin (Webster, Frost)

Mid: Ablett, Pendlebury, Swan, Watson, Deledio, JP Kennedy, Mundy, Priddis (Mitchell, Saunders)

Ruck: Minson, Naitanui (Nicholls, Currie)

Fwd: Walker, Cox, Franklin, Rockliff, Kennedy, Breust (Staker, Paparone)

Pretty happy with where I'm at. Have had Mundy from the start and he's really starting to pay off for me, as are Swan and Shaw, who I picked up at their respective lowest prices throughout the year. My problem lies with Breust – would love to trade him, but all I can afford is Stokes, McEvoy, Maric, Leuenberger etc (the latter two I've already traded out this year at different points). The plan was to get Riewoldt, but Breust's 42 has stuffed that up. Won't be able to get Riewoldt next week either, as Breust will drop just as much in price.

Suggestions community? In a bit of a pickle with this one. Cheers


JJ Kennedy up forward, that is


fellas, i have 5 trades left and need to get rid of sauce jacobs. the best player i can afford to bring in for him this week is leuenberger. the rest of my team is full of premiums and the byes are not an issue for me this week. is there anyone cheaper who i could pick up or should i hold?




yeah maric is a really good choice, bound to storm home


Really stuck this week. Have 11 trades left and my team looks like this:
Goddard, Heppell, Gibbs, Duffield, Hibberd, Vlastuin (Thurlow, Sierakowski)
Ablett, Watson, Danger, Delidio, Fyfe, Kennedy, Priddis, Mitchell.Tom( Blicavs, kennedy.b)
Cox McEvoy (Nicholls, Currie)
Stevie J, NicNat, Martin,Buddy, Rockliff, Kennedy, (Macaffer Staker)
Trades for this week
Macaffer > Daniher
Kennedy.B > Barlow
Vlastuin or Hibberd > Ellis


Can't go wrong with Kennedy to Barlow. I also think the Macaffer trade should earn you some cash. However Ellis is not proven still young and he'll drop off. Recommend looking at Shaw when his price drops, safe reliable and not usually ravaged with injuries. Give Hanley another week to.


Like your 1st 2 trades there mate……agreed completely…

last trade i wouldn't be trading out Hibberd…..I think you can keep him…..Vlastuin to H Shaw would be good trade if you can afford H Shaw…..but I will do Vlastuin to H Shaw next week…….Ellis is not a proven Premium for me as yet……


Tommy Gun

Ellis’ high scores this year have been against the lower placed sides and unfortunately you’ve missed the boat (started at $300k). A better option would be Hanley, next week after he’s dropped in price with any luck will be even cheaper than Ellis is now.


Loving the podcast fellas. Has made my first year in Supercoach a heck of a lot easier!

Community – Need to upgrade Blicavs. I can't decide whether to grab a ruckman or to swing in Naitanui and grab a forward. Should I spend the cash and grab Minson/Goldstein/Bartel or look at Maric or Dusty for value for money?

RUCK – Cox, Blicavs (Nicholls, Hannath)
FWD – Walker, Johnson, Naitanui, Rockliff, Franklin, JJK, (Staker, Macaffer)


Any other than bartell


whats wrong with bartel?


he's projected to go up $40K this week. keep him for 1 more week


Jock, which two forwards do you think will score the most for the remainder of the season?

Looking to trade in two this week, will be full of premiums – but i'm strained for trades, so they need to be perfect.



Who will average more zorko the craptastic or the bearded Hoff can only get rid of one I have a feeling it’s westhoff


Zorko will improve mate


Great podcast funny as great intro had my colleagues looking at me funny sniggering under my breath


Hey guys,
Could use some advice, my team at the moment:

Def: Goddard, Gibbs, Heppell, Birchall, Vlastuin, Goodes (Laird, Thurlow)
Mid: Ablett, Pendlebury, Swan, Watson, JPK, Dangerfield, Barlow, Priddis (T.Mitchell, K. Martin)
Ruck: Naitanui, Jacobs (Nicholls, Currie)
Fwd: Cox, S. Johnson, Rockliff, Franklin, JJK, Macaffer (Neade, Staker)
10 Trades, $157,500 in the bank

Alot of donuts this week, but am not worried as im going for league wins and doing fairly well in them, so can afford 1 loss. My plan going into this week was to go Neade/Laird out for Daniher/Bartel, getting rid of one of my donuts in the process by swapping Staker to def. But Neade's shithouse score has made that $5,400 short.

What Im thinking now, is to also get rid of Macaffer to a rookie, which would lead to having around $200,000-230,000 in the bank, hopefully allowing me to, next week, upgrade JJK/Vlastuin to H.Shaw/A.Walker.

My questions are, should I do this? And if so, are there any other forward rookies other than Daniher that I could grab this week for Macaffer. Or should I do something else entirely.

Any advice is welcome. Thanks guys!


neade laird for daniher hanley


He has a pretty high breakeven and the lions have a tough couple of weeks if I recall correctly, wanted to wait a little before grabbing him.


Here's another dilemma for everyone to consider- Tom Mitchell will score as high as any top 10 mid for the rest of the year…… if you have a full mid with Mitchell on the bench- who's gonna have the ballbag to put Mitchell on the field and leave a Priddis/Danger/Fyfe on the bench? We will see! Because Mitchell is most certainly an M8 player- not a bench player.


let's see in 4-5 weeks, I'm treating him like a rookie, similiar to O'Meara, great now but once he gets a bit tired (as they all do at that stage) he will drop off a little. Not saying he's not a keeper – he's def a keeper for the rest of the year, but not as an M8.

SC Legend.

If you put your 8th midfield premium as the emergency whose playing first every week, who you are not as confident you can do the emergency loophole.
e.g a Priddis who is a consistent 100-110. If he gets under 90 or so, you can leave him as emergency and chuck Mitchell on the field and if he does score over that, if your second midfield bench is not playing you can chuck him on field and get Priddis scores.


got a dilema community have traded crouch for tom mitchell and the jaeger bomb for joel slwood but could have afforded anyone besiddes griffen and pendlebury should i have picked someone else???


now what is wrong with sam Mitchell? he is a bit of POD And is quite cheap at the moment only 520k


Fyfe vs Barlow?
Naitanui vs Bartel?
Hanley vs Shaw?

I'm more looking at finals because my team is going strong as is


Barlow Nic Nat Shaw


Dean Terlich, time to go?

SC Legend.

Cash him in. Should of done it last week with his bye $$$.

Time to cash in and get a full premium team.


need some advice please.. severe mental block.. hit a bit of a brick wall..

def- shaw, goddard gibbs, heppel, goodes, vlastuin, terlich, thurlow
mid- ablett, pendlebury, swan, watson, jpk, swallow, mundy, priddis, crouch, hrovat
ruc- minson, natanui, nicholls, currie
fwd- cox, roughead, rocklife, franklin johnson, macafer, rowe, staker

11 trades left.. thinking of going terlich -> birtchall. crouch -> mitchell. macaffer-> daniher.

after these trades i will have 264k in the bank.. want to go early on daniher because i need cash to set me up for run in + finals.. and i dont want to waste a trade just to bring someone in who finished byes… meaning after round 13 i can go staker -> ultra premium.. and then take it easy making cash till finals…

that is my original plan (lucky i wrote that down) since then i have confused myself


anyone?? please…


those trades sound fine, I don't think you need any advice, you have a pretty solid strategy there , just stick with that.


Debating between Drew Petrie or Brent Harvey as the next FWD upgrade? Any suggestions or preferences for FWD upgrade – not convinced on Buddy and already have 4 WCE players in my team (Cox, Priddis, Shuey, JJK) so would be a risk bringing in Nic Nat?


No way should you bring in Petrie at his current price


Fair point – Any other suggestions for FWD premium?….My current FWD line is:
Cox, Bartel, Rockliff, Walker, Stevie J, JJK, Macaffer, B. Kennedy

I use Rowe to swing Cox between Fwd and Ruc….so looking to upgrade Macaffer this week and use Cox as a FWD


Hi Jay,

Nic Nat / Buddy / Nick Riewoldt / Rioli (If you can wait for him) / Roughead / Dusty……



Thanks mate…..I'm not convinced on Buddy, with Nic Nat – i already have 4 WCE players, so bringing in a 5th is a bit risky, Rioli – I'll wait till he plays a game or two before considering……Dusty has a very high BE – St. Nick is a good choice – just noticed their draw, Mel & Richmond coming up – could be a good POD, seriously considering St. Nick now!!!


Bring in Nic Nat if you can. He'll outscore all of the above mentioned fwd's. Even on a bad day he still gets up around the 100 mark. I wouldn't worry about having both cox and JJK, Nic Nat is easily the best fwd option to bring in.


yes, it would be too risky to have too many players from one team. In terms of FWD premiums, I would go Rockliff over those two as he is significcantly cheaper and has a lot of room for improvement and big scores, but if I had to choose between those two, I would go harvey, as he is cheaper, and has a better average


Had Rocky since the start of the season!! 🙂 just hoping Michael Voss uses his brain a bit more and plays in through the Midfield more, rather than at full-forward – or maybe they are just nursing him through the Quad injury?….hoping for some big returns later on in the year!!

Jason Rose

Any good forward downgrade options this week? Thinking Tom Lee but not sure about his job security.


Wait another week for Joe Daniher


Tom Lee might not play again this year little on score over 30 when he does.


Trading Kerridge out for one of the Geelong maestros, but what one?

Bartel or Stevie J?


Bartel because more consistent


Bartel for consistency Stevie J if you want them big scores occasionally



SC Legend.

Community, here's my team so far!
Hanley, Birchall, Gibbs, Heppell, Duffield, Goodes (Clarke, Wilson)
Ablett, Pendlebury, JPK, Watson, Danger, Priddis, Fyfe, Selwood (Mitchell, Martin)
Minson, Maric (Nicohls, Currie)
Cox, Stevie J, Nic Nat, Franklin, Zorko, Staker (Rowe, Burbury)

I've almost got a full premium team.
I've done Macaffer to MINSON this week with a breakeven of 130 odd but a far easier finals run than Goldstein, right decision?
I've got $109,400 left and hoping a downgrade of Clarke to a defender next week and Rowe up to Riewoldt next week!


Looking at Goldstein's run home, he's got Collingwood and Hawks, but has averaged ~ 120 over the past few games against these teams.


Macarrer to Daniher
Laird to Birch
O'meara to either deledio, hannebery or mundy??
will put me at 20 premiums with 8 trades left


Macaffer that is lol


Got a pretty solid team at the minute and sitting within top 1000 for the first time ever (thanks Jock!)

DEF: Goddard, Heppell, Birchall, Taylor, Shaw, Gibbs (Goodes/Thurlow)
MID: Ablett, Pendles, Swan, Watson, Danger, JP Kennedy, Barlow, Priddis (Viney, T. Mitchell)
RUC: Cox, Leuy, Nicholls, Currie
FWD: Martin, Rockliff, Franklin, JJ Kennedy, Zorko, NicNat (B. Kennedy, Staker)

Had 11 trades at the end of round 12 – Traded out Vlaustin/Mcaffer for T. Mitchell/JPK this week but have 117,100 left and an extra trade up my sleeve this week
What I'd love some feedback on is who's the best upgrade target. I have a team of pretty much premiums now which I'm rapt about but feel there's a couple of chinks in my armour.
Should I upgrade Zorko or Leuy this week or hold on the trade for a week or so and wait til another premium drops in price?


Viney – K Martin
Zorko – Bartel/Stevie J
B Kennedy – Daniher (maybe after bye)

That’s what I’d do. Good team!!


Hi guys, just wondering on some advice.

Def- Goddard, Heppel, Duffield, Birchall, Vlaustin, Goodes, (terlich, coloquhon)

Mid- Ablett, Barlow, Watson, Cotchin, Swallow, Kennedy, Omeara, B.Hill, (Hrovat, K.martin)

Ruc- Minson, nicholls, (Rowe, Daw)

Fwd- Cox, walker, Kennedy, Bartel, Franklin, Black, (macaffer, lee)

This week planning on using 3 trades.


Vlaustin> Ibbotson

Omeara> Mundy.

Some dodgy players in my team I know but they haven’t caused me dramas I’ve been getting good scores.


I would be trading Terlich over Vlaustin. Vlaustin has 2-3 weeks minimum left of price rises especially considering his soft draw.

Think there would be better defensive options than Ibbotson but that’s just my opinion.

Rest of your trades sound good, although I’d be trying to get Pendles/Swan in someone.


definitely agree with Carl…terlich this week Vlastuin later – if at all. Ibbotson would be interesting POD, otherwise Hanley – but most serious backlines will have him also


L ball> j. Selwood??- not sure if Ball is going to go up much more…

and is it worth getting daniher, as I doubt his Job sercurity.

Rick Grimes

There are some pretty dubious interpretations of premiums on here. Plenty sounding off that they have 23 premiums in their team. I'd argue there aren't 23 premiums in the comp. For mine, a premium averages 110+ year on year.


Actually no, a premium is anyone +500K


Is Goodes and Vlaustin keepers for the rest of the season?


Vlastuin maybe… goodes no


Think Vlaustin will tyre, only a young man Goodes has a good tough body. Vlaustin first


Personally I'll be looking to upgrade both. Probably to Gibbs and Heppel.
Then my backs will be: Goddard, Duffield, Birchall (F*ccckkkkk), Hartlett (F*ccckkkkk), Gibbs, Heppel
Feeling pretty uneasy about hartlett and birchall but we'll see…






This week:

1.Crouch –> T.Mitchell
2.Kerridge –> Stevie J

10 trades left and 294k in the kitty, who else should i be looking into to upgrade?
Team looks like this:

DEF: Hartlett, Birchall, Goodes, Goddard, Gibbs (Thurlow, Colquhoun)
MIDS: Ablett, Pendles, Danger, Kennedy, Cotchin, Priddis, Fyfe, T.Mitchell (Rampe, Hrovat)
RUCKS: Minson, Rowe (Nicholls, Currie)
FWDS: Cox, Martin, Rockliff, Franklin, Stevie J, Cloke (Staker, B.Kennedy)

Will be upgrading Rampe next week to possibly a Swan, any feedback would be appreciated.


Missing a def


Here is my team its my first year doing supercoach just wanted peoples thoughts on how im traveling and any suggestions.
7 Trades left 256,100 left in bank





Went all out on getting midfield locked and had way too many silly tades early in the season but looking at downgrading dwyer and upgrading macaffer to walker after bye? (open to suggestions)
and blicvas to minson soon also want to eventually go vlaustin to a hanley or shaw
let us know what you think


Downgrade dwyer to daniher, then upgrade mcaffer to walker


8 Trades left, Trades used this round 3/3, $17,600, Team Value $12,927,300

DEFENDERS: Goddard, Shaw, Gibbs, Hurn, Birchall (traded in this week), Duffield Emergencies: Staker, Webster

MIDFIELDERS: Ablett, Watson, Kennedy J, Selwood J (traded in this week), Mundy, Hannebery, Cotchin, Fyfe
Emergencies: Mitchell T (traded in this week), Mitchell K

RUCKS: Cox, Roughead J
Emergencies: Nicholls, Currie

FORWARDS: Bartel, Naitanui, Rockliff, Cloke, Franklin, Kennedy J
Emergencies: Macaffer, Kennedy B

My only real concern is kennedys injury in the forward line


Hey guys,
Thoughts on starting Tom mitchell for the rest of the year or way too risky?


with his scores so far you would think it wouldnt be too bad of an option


Way too early to decide


I'm definately keeping him as M8 atm. Looks really good, and if his scores start to fade then I can always trade. He's also 1-2 years older than a lot of the other cash cows this year, so he may not tire before seasons end.


Hey guys my team after my 3 trades this round is as follows

Def; Goddard, Birchall, Shaw, Gibbs. Ibbotson, Vlaustin (Terlich, J. Clarke)

Mids: Ablett, Swan, Watson, Dangerfield, JPK, Barlow, Cotchin, S, Mitchell (M Hutchings, T, Mitchell)

Ruck: Goldstein Nic Nat (Nicholls, Rowe)

Fwd: Walker, Rockliff, Zorko, D Martin, JJK, Staker (Daniher b Kennedy)

I just want some thoughts guys do u think i should upgrade players like zorko to say stevie j, or maybe cothin to a pendles?

Also does my team look ok or did i make a bad trade? any thoughts would be apprectiated


Who would be the best premium option, I am trading Terlich so I have 481,800 to spend. I already have Gibbs, Goddard, Hanley, Hartlett.
Any thoughts would be much apprectiated


Definitely Heath shaw or birchall, shaw for mine


If you cannot afford to have H Shaw, then Birchall is a very good option…..



POD are Thompson from Nth Melb and Ibbotson from Freo
Shaw and Birchall very good options but man a lot of people have them.
I have Birchall now traded him in last week and will not get Shaw because Iam now searching for the right POD.


Harry Taylor is another. I.m planning to bring in Shaw next week, but have the exact 4 you named above and cant decide who to bring in this week. Birchall, Taylor, Ibbotson. Even considering Ellis after his recent form, but I'm wary after being burned by hartlett and the Hoff


Im thinking probably Birchell but not sure if he will still get tagged for the rest of the season?


I reckon Birchall. Ibbotson a close second though.


Think im the happiest ive been with any round of trading this season….
Terlich –> Bartel (with Staker swing to backline)
O'meara –> Selwood
McCaffer –> T.Mitchell-son (with J.Lewis swing to fwd line)

completes fwd line and midfield for season im hoping.
Now to just wait on Goodes or Vlastuin to see whether they're keepers.
And whether to stick with Shuey and Sauce Jacobs or not…hmmmm


Hey Jock what about Corey Enright as a POD $472k with a pretty soft draw at the cattery

Rotten Ronny

Keep Shuey or burn a sideways trade to a JPK, Swan or Deledio (bearing in mind I also have Priddis)?


i'm going to get rid of shuey – sick of the boy, go to a bloody elite premium, having priddis has no effect in my opinion.
