Barron Von Crow - inner sanctum

Howdy folks, Barron Von Crow here with our Round 8 Supercoach Scouting Report. Well, Round 8 looked to be another shocker for many in Supercoach, with the late withdrawals of many players.

Players such as; Patrick Cripps, Shane Edwards, Tom Lynch, Jeremy McGovern, Tom Hawkins, Jesse Hogan, Isaac Smith, Jake Carlisle and Jarryn Geary. Not to mention injury effected scores from Jack Lonie, Christian Salem, Nick Riewoldt and Brodie Smith as well as losing Andrew Swallow, Matthew Jaensch and Mitch Duncan to injuries.

But we have to keep moving in Supercoach, lest we fall too far behind the pack, so lets get out of pads and penclils and get down to doing some Supercoach homework as we take a look at what’s in store for us in Round 8.

Also, remember to look out for the red and green Supercoach scores, RED = bad, GREEN = good which may help you out when it comes to picking your captains for the week

captainCaptain Pick(s): Normally you’d look at this game and whack a VC on Joel Selwood without any hesitation, but his 3 round average of 92 Supercoach Points will add a pause into that idea. You just know he’s too good to be held down this long though and there’s bound to be a huge score just waiting to be let out and playing against a struggling Carlton side could just be what Selwood needs. But as Mick the Mad Irishman pointed out on Twitter, we must not forget the negating tactics of Ed Curnrow and Andrew Carrazzo. Steven Johnson has also been scoring better with an increased midfield role, so there’s another potential VC pick too. From Carlton’s side, I’d most likely stay completely away from them.

captainCaptain Pick(s): An interesting matchup, with two great midfielders in Matt Priddis and David Armitage and two big forwards in Josh Kennedy (1st on the Coleman count with 27) and Josh Bruce (4th with 24 goals) facing each other. This game will have to go to one man however, and that’s Matt Priddis. If you own him, you just can’t pass him up based on his current form. Whack a VC or C on him and hope he continues his terrific scoring for another week.

captainCaptain Pick(s): Patrick Dangerfield has had some of his best career scores against the Giants, highlighted by a 2014 AFL-wide high of 192 Supercoach Points last year in Round 5. This years Giants are much better than last year’s however, so it remains to be seen if Danger can repeat the effort. And you all know the usual suspects by now for the Giants, with plenty of guys like Ward, Shiel, Treloar and Greene all capable of putting up C scores on their day. One Giant who looks to be heading into some really good form is Shane Mumford, he scored 138 last week, though he’ll have some much tougher competition this week against Sam Jacobs. And as we pointed out last week, don’t forget the big forwards against Adelaide. Josh Bruce had 120 last week, which means Jeremy Cameron would be looking at this game and maybe pencilling in more than a few sausage rolls.

captainCaptain Pick(s): Pendles had a bad week, but that happens so infrequently that I cannot see any way that happens for a 2nd week in a row. If you were burnt with him last week, forget about it and jump right back onto that horse. He’ll look to pump out a very good score here. Same with Dane Swan, he could go very large against a struggling Suns side.

captainCaptain Pick(s): It’s getting quite hard to pick which Sydney player to pick week to week nowadays. They had 9 players who scored 100+ Supercoach Points last week and we’ve seen players like Hannebery, Kennedy, Parker and Mitchell all put up Captain worthy scores on different weeks. For the Hawks, Sam Mitchell has been great while Hodge and Lewis were out, Lewis will be returning this week, so I’m sure he’ll be looking to make amends. We also can’t forget the potential goal scoring potential of Jarryd Roughead and Lance Franklin. I’m finding it quite hard to make a pick from this one, not on talent levels, but just because there’s so many guys who could belt out huge scores.

captainCaptain Pick(s): Looking at the previous scores, Jobe Watson would be the man to lock in here, with increasing scores, all above 130, in his past 3 games against the Lions. He did seem to spend quite a bit of time in the forward half for the Bombers last week, so that might be something to take into consideration again here. Dyson Heppell has also done well against the Lions, he had a 150 agains the Pies in Rd 4 and a score of 121 last week, but hasn’t really looked like being a consistent Captain threat yet. For Brisbane. Dayne Beams would be the man to seriously look at here while Rockliff slowly regains form. He was fantastic last week with a score of 141 and I think he’s capable of duplicating that effort here.

Key scores: Mark Jamar 131, Marcus Bontempelli 129, Matthew Boyd 119, Jeremy Howe 118

HotLiam Picken continues he’s hot streak. After averaging 67 over the first 3 weeks, he’s been averaging 125 Supercoach Points over his last 4 games.

coldDom Tyson is probably one of the more disappointing players for 2015. After averaging 94 Supercoach Points in a breakout 2014 season, he’s only managed to average 70.5 Supercoach Points this year and has a high score of 86.

captainCaptain Pick(s): Marcus Bontempelli has been somewhat subdued after lighting the place on fire in Rounds 1 and 2, his high score since then being 113 Supercoach Points, but he’s a valid option here, he scored 129 last time they played and he’s a better player now. I’ve been steering clear of most Melbourne players lately, with Tom McDonald the only one who’s looking like a Supercoach threat, but he’s usually topping out at a 125 point player at best, so there’s some safety in that, but you should probably have better options available to you.

HotTrent Cotchin finished off a up and down month with a fantastic score of 162 Supercoach Points last week against Collingwood. That’s his 2nd score of 144+ this year, so hopefully he can continue to pump out those massive scores.

captainCaptain Pick(s): There appears to be an absolute ton of Supercoach potential here if last week was anything to go by. Trent Cotchin, Brett Deledio, Shaun Grigg, Ivan Maric and Robbie Gray all put up terrific scores in Round 7 and we’ll have to hope they continue it into Round 8. Another interesting matchup, Port annihilated Richmond in the Elimination Final at AO last year, but Port are coming off a very disappointing loss and looking to re-energize their struggling side, while Richmond are coming off a great win last week and will be looking to continue their winning ways. Trent Cotchin is probably the one I’ll have my eyes on the most, he’s continued to show flashes of getting back to the superstar he was in 2012, but doesn’t look to have been able to keep it up on a continual basis. For the Power, Robbie Gray carried an enormous load in the middle for them last week, he’ll still be needing to put in a big effort here, and he’s proven he’s one of the best Supercoach players again in 2015.

VC on fyfe and captain on Robbie Gray. Loop hole is on the cards if Fyfe puuls out a 130 +

    BarronVonCrow · 21/05/2015 at 19:10

    Nice! I don't think Fyfe will have any issues with that this week.

    Charlesy · 21/05/2015 at 20:39

    Same Nicky. Great minds think alike. (Fools rarely differ) lol

Timmy · 21/05/2015 at 18:02

Yep VC on Fyfe and C on Robbie Gray.

    BarronVonCrow · 21/05/2015 at 19:10

    Good combo, Timmy.

AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 18:06

Good report VON! I have Fyfe Pendels Priddis Gray Lewis Treloar and JPK & Tmitch in my Mid who do you think I should C and VC?

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 21/05/2015 at 18:44

    I’m going vc priddus and then c fyfe

      AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 18:50

      Probably follow your lead!! Thanks Mate!

        BarronVonCrow · 21/05/2015 at 19:10

        Good picks, AM. Gotta have Priddis in there in some form!

          AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 19:48

          Yes thats what Im thinking as well!!! Thanks VON!!!

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 21/05/2015 at 19:10

      Heeney will be a nice c loophole if priddus goes large again which is on the cards against the saints.

        AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 19:47

        Hmmm yeah I have Heeney too!!!

What are your thoughts on these trades community?

Andrew Swallow to Selwood

Vandenberg to Rockliff.

Thoughts??

    AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 18:39

    Selwood a great pick! I'm one who wants to wait on Rocky even though everyone says bring him in? Read article on AFL.com about Rocky!

      Keenbutclueless · 21/05/2015 at 19:02

      I agree. Not even in full training yet. Reckon he might be around the same price after his bye. Will take the chance to fix other things this week and wait until then

        AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 19:03

        I agree Keen!!!

          AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 20:36

          Go swallow to Selwood

          and

          Van to Priddis

          if you can afford it???

      Timmy · 21/05/2015 at 20:33

      Wow. Yeah changes my opinion.

      The 25-year-old said he was still enduring significant pain from the injury and would have to manage it until the bye.

      "I feel it after the game, the next two days are the worst," Rockliff said.

      "I don't do a lot of training, so that's probably hard at the moment. I'm sure in the coming weeks that'll get better and I'll be able to train with the main group and get the main sessions completed.

      Great article by the way mate

I notice Sinclair has been picked for St Kilda. Been reading all week how is time is up as an elevated rookie. ?????

AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 19:03

    BarronVonCrow · 21/05/2015 at 19:12

    I can get behind that!

      Andy · 21/05/2015 at 19:41

      Betts or Goddard a better upgrade for M.Clarke

        AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 19:51

        Betts!!! He's cheaper!!! I want Goddard as well with his DPP but dang Bettts is just huge right now and like 50K cheaper than Goddard gotta go Betts!!!

Ashley J · 21/05/2015 at 19:10

Should I trade out Lumumba, Oxley or Ibbo for Tmac??

    AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 19:53

    hmmmm ……seriously??? LUMBA!!!!! DUMP HIM NOW!!!!

michael · 21/05/2015 at 19:11

Any idea when Goddard from the Saints will be getting a run (if at all?)

    CJ · 21/05/2015 at 21:43

    I wanted to know this too. His stats in the VFL haven’t been great and he didn’t play last weekend

CashCows · 21/05/2015 at 19:13

Cripps named up forward. Is this going to play bad on his scoring?

Cripps to rocky? or griffen out instead?

    Gordo D Magnificent · 21/05/2015 at 20:40

    naming a player on field somewhere literally means nothing…he will play mid

Dan · 21/05/2015 at 19:19

Oxley or Ibbotson to McDonald or not? will leave me with 159K in the chest

    BarronVonCrow · 22/05/2015 at 00:47

    I'd probably for Oxley to McDonald. Ox BE at about 90 odd, if he isn't scoring well he'll start to lose $.

Adzy · 21/05/2015 at 19:21

Do players lose cash if it there first week injured?

    Donavan · 21/05/2015 at 21:46

    Players that dont play dont loss cash.

Ross · 21/05/2015 at 19:24

Van Den Berg or Griffen to Rocky? Only $101k in the bank?

    AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 19:54

    VDB….can ride Griff a week or 2???

@Rem_Wah · 21/05/2015 at 19:33

Nice write-up Barron. Love the use of analytics!
Thinking VC Selwood, Fyfe captain (not taking any risks this week!)

    AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 19:55

    LOL did you do what I did??? Fyfe hands down!!!! He is the Ablett this yr!

      AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 19:56

      yes to your answer VC Selwod C Fyfe!!!!!

        @Rem_Wah · 21/05/2015 at 20:46

        Yep. He should be a captain lock every week.

    BarronVonCrow · 22/05/2015 at 00:48

    goddard

    AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 19:57

    Betts!!!! He's cheaper and scores more!!!!!! Love Goddard and DPP but price wise go Betts!!!!!!

    John_Q_Smith · 22/05/2015 at 02:07

    Depends on how many rd 12 bye players you have, at this point we have to start thinking about the weeks ahead… If both work for you then I'd go Goddard as he is a proven gun.

Tophawk · 21/05/2015 at 19:41

Hi community,

Hi have decided to give Griffen the flick this week.
Lumumba will be spared and carried for another 2-3 weeks until Brodie Smith's price bottoms.

Trading out Griffin gives me 620K. Who do I trade in? My preferred pick at #1, etc.

1- Luke Parker.
2- Matt Priddis.
3- Scott Selwood.
4- Tom Rockliff (Was my favourite pick during the week but thinking picking him now may be a little early)
5- Adam Treloar
6- Or someone else

Thoughts greatly appreciated.

    AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 19:59

    Priddis Mate !!!! Priddis!!!!

    Rocky can wait he wont make that much!!!! I feel your pain but wait on Rocky till 12 its not that far off!!!! He wont raise that much and will be a good price!!!!

      AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 20:00

      OK Selwood is a good option too seeing he's playing Carlton….so it's up to you Priddis or Selwood its up to you!!!!

        AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 20:02

        I already have Treloar try to pick him up next week??? I like him!!!!!!!

        Donavan · 21/05/2015 at 21:56

        But Joel Selwood would be a better option than Scott Selwood…..lol

Jarrod · 21/05/2015 at 19:49

I can afford any player under 605k in the midfield. I already have Fyfe, Selwood, Beams, Parker, JPK. Don't want Rocky, going Cripps to him next week. Thinking Lewis, Treloar or Priddis. Any other players I should look at?

    Liam · 21/05/2015 at 20:53

    priddis

    BarronVonCrow · 22/05/2015 at 00:49

    If that's your budget, then pick the guy who scores the best. As Liam said, that's likely Priddis.

Leon · 21/05/2015 at 19:58

Trading Griffen – Rocky this week.
Still have Clark, Oxley and K Mac.
Should I trade one or hold all?
Thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 20:10

    Hold all!!!! I would wait on Rocky too….but that's just me!!! I think Rocky is a week 12 trade!!!

      Downgrade to Bailey Dale (WB), he is named this week after scoring 50 (sub effected) points on debut.

Cripps into Fyfe

RIP loophole options

    AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 20:08

    Really? Cripps has been named??? Why trade him???? He's done well!!!! Still can make money I think??? Trade someone not worthy for Fyfe!!!!!

      KJU FC · 21/05/2015 at 20:16

      I agree about Cripps still having a bit of money to make but it most likely wont be much more.

      If Cripps is the only person you can get rid of for Fyfe then I'd do it.

      Fyfe is a must have this year.

    KJU FC · 21/05/2015 at 20:26

    Priddis and Beams a guns mate, cant go wrong with them.

    Rockliff is great value though and Sloane will be aswell when he comes back but if I had too choose one I'd go Priddis.

    this all depends on your structure and warchest though.
    Your choice Alex!

Is T.mitchell the real deal this year and can we seriously expect him to be a top 6 forward this year?

    Ryan · 21/05/2015 at 21:04

    in other words should i trade him in for griffen this week?

      Donavan · 21/05/2015 at 22:02

      His not foward eligible, pure mid this year.

        Ryan · 21/05/2015 at 22:10

        who is griffen? im usuing krak dpp to swap forward and trade mitch in if people think its a good idea

        Grizzles · 21/05/2015 at 22:12

        incorrect.

          Grizzles · 21/05/2015 at 22:13

          sideways trade but not the worst. Mitchell has DPP though so look to get him in as a forward

            Ryan · 22/05/2015 at 12:00

            yeah swung him down forward afraid of being burnt though

        Donavan · 21/05/2015 at 22:30

        stand corrected, was thinking Parker….for god knows what reason

matt · 21/05/2015 at 20:26

why are people saying that t mitchells job security isn't great..
i mean.. who's going to take it..
surely lloyd, bird, goods, towers, rohan are all players that will miss before him..
am i not seeing something

    KJU FC · 21/05/2015 at 20:33

    Most of those players play different roles.
    Mitchell is a tough inside mid which Sydney already have a few of which makes Mitchells spot harder to keep.

    He is a gun though and deserves to keep his spot

Community I am faced with a dilemma this week. I believe this is the time of the year that we should be looking to upgrade our sides, however i still have Swallow and Sloane kicking around in the midfield. I can trade from Goodes down to Lever adn Vandenberg up to Rockliff with virtually no left over cash, or I could sideways one of either Swallow or Sloane. Is it worth holding these two for the long term or sould I be focusing on short term cash generation?

    Paul Walnuts · 21/05/2015 at 20:47

    You must always stay in the game despite injury,suspension ect, Do the the Goodes – Lever & Vander – Rocky trades and your side will look a lot better —-whilst Swallow n Sloane aren't playing theres no damage unless ypu dont have bench coverage – look towards next week where you can maybe go 2 up or 1 up and 1 down, Good Luck x

      AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 21:13

      go swallow to Tmitch or Ziebell

      Van to Priddis

      if you have the cash?

      Rocky can wait…..Swallow is not worth the long term but I will say Sloane is! He might be back net week???

@KingWinter7 · 21/05/2015 at 20:36

Fyfe VC & Gray C seem like the best captain options this week but I have a bit of a problem…..

If Fyfe scores well i can put in Lambert for The Bont but i have Mitch Clark in my forward line as an emergency for the emergency loophole i was gonna use with Tarrant (For example if Clarke scores well presumably he will against the Blues…. substitute Lambert in for Tarrant) My other not playing players games are all on Saturday so pretty useless…..

Is it possible to use both loopholes or will i have to choose between the one?

    Donavan · 21/05/2015 at 22:09

    The only way you could use it is-

    Clark is your fwd emerg, and scores well.
    Bring on Lambert for Tarrant.
    See what Fyfe scores, if your happy witrh it as a captains score, then put the captaincy on Lambert, if not leave the captaincy on Gray.

    You wont have the captains loophole if Clark fails to score well, and you go with Tarrant on-field, but then you could move the captaincy straight onto Fyfe, after Friday nights match.

Murray · 21/05/2015 at 20:39

I only wish to make one trade this week and that has to be is vandenberg. Who is th best downgrade option? Can be any line. Need help please community

    lol · 21/05/2015 at 20:40

    Lever

      Donavan · 21/05/2015 at 22:12

      I would prefer Bailey Dale from the Bulldogs, but he has only played the 1 game (sub effected), but is named for his 2nd.

KKP · 21/05/2015 at 20:41

Thoughts on Corey Ellis as a downgrade on bubble????

    @Rem_Wah · 21/05/2015 at 20:51

    I was thinking either him or Stretch. Both options aren't all that exciting though :/

    @Rem_Wah · 21/05/2015 at 20:52

    Job security a worry too

    Francis · 21/05/2015 at 20:56

    Don't see him getting big scores, probably 50-60 each week. Not sure about Job Security either, as a Richmond fan someone will have to make way for Conca soon. At 160k I think he's a bit much, wait a week and bring in Dumont/Dale.

Liam · 21/05/2015 at 20:44

Oxley has a break even of 95
Do we trade or hold community.
Cheers

    AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 20:50

    I say hold!!! That's just my opinion!

    @Rem_Wah · 21/05/2015 at 20:50

    Hold him for at least 1 more week. No need to trade unless he's your only week link in your team.

      AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 21:16

      It's (weak) not (week)……..(link in your team!)

        AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 21:20

        Sunday through Saturday means week!

        My knee is weak means having trouble standing!

    BarronVonCrow · 22/05/2015 at 00:50

    I'm trading him, but I have Burgoyne in my MIDs, so I'm swinging him back as a replacement and bringing in Rockliff.

Francis · 21/05/2015 at 20:51

Who's the best downgrade option this week?

And who to trade in for VDB out of Rockliff and Selwood?

    AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 21:17

    There is no really good down grade this week with really no players on the bubble now!

    Donavan · 21/05/2015 at 22:18

    Downgrade targets – Lever or Dale

    I would go Rocky over Selwood, I am targetting both over the next few weeks, but Selwood will get cheaper, whereas I dont think Rocky will.

Murray · 21/05/2015 at 21:28

Is it still worth getting in titch

    AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 21:58

    Yeah but get him now if you do!

    BarronVonCrow · 22/05/2015 at 00:51

    Probably the last week to get in on him cheap. Another big game and he'll blow past 500K.

Oskar S · 21/05/2015 at 21:29

Brilliant Report!!! I do believe there is no point having anyone as captain besides fyfe. I mean he is just that much better then everyone.

    AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 21:58

    I agree!

    BarronVonCrow · 22/05/2015 at 00:51

    Indeed Oskar, he's the new ABlett for Supercoach.

Murray · 21/05/2015 at 21:29

Is Reilly Obrien from Adelaide been upgraded and one rookie listed by the club. Does this mean he can now play

    BarronVonCrow · 22/05/2015 at 00:55

    That's right Murray, but the Crows are currently running with Josh Jenkins as the backup ruck. They see O'Brien as pure ruck, despite him playing a large part of 2014 playing CHB. So if Jacobs is playing, O'Brien likely won't be as they have said they don't want to go in with two pure rucks.

    Part of upgrading him was also because it meant they could list him as an emergency, and the Crows were running pretty deep with injuries for a few weeks, so they did it to have a fresh body they could use if the worst happened.

      murray · 22/05/2015 at 10:32

      thanks Von for the great update

Jay · 21/05/2015 at 21:32

Lance Franklin? When should we get him??

    AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 21:59

    Get Franklin next week!!!!

Murray · 21/05/2015 at 21:33

I want make just one trade this week in vandenberg. Who is the best downgrade option?

    AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 21/05/2015 at 22:01

    There is no good downgrade ….if you trade Van……its a upgrade!!!!

      John_Q_Smith · 22/05/2015 at 01:55

      Not everyone has the cash in the bank to upgrade Vanders and he definitely needs to go this week. I'd look at Lever (Adel) via DPP down back as probably the best option with C. Ellis (Rich) or B. Stretch (Melb) as the only other real bubble options. I'm not sold on either of them but sometimes desperate times call for desperate trades…

      The other option is the risky Vanders to B. Dale (WBD) or K. Amon (Port) – pending him being named of course – trade via DPP in the forward line but with only one game under both of their belts waiting a week seems optimal. I really wish Vanders would be a late out this week so I could hold off trading him until I see another game from Dale or Amon.

        murray · 22/05/2015 at 10:31

        i agree john

        Timmmy · 22/05/2015 at 10:31

        I feel your pain John. Same position I'm in. Was 7k short Vanders to Rocky. Thinking of going to Dale or maybe Dawson who is named for his first game but currently on the extended bench.

Donavan · 21/05/2015 at 22:22

Who would you play on-field, out of-

Ellis-Yolmen & Touk Miller?

No loop-hole available.

Thanks.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 21/05/2015 at 22:38

    Touk has the runs on the board recently I’m starting him.

    AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 22/05/2015 at 17:48

    Hmmm…thats tough…..flip a coin

Jimmy · 21/05/2015 at 22:45

Vandenberg > Rocky
Oxley > Lever
Hold Sloane until next week (to get more info on injury)

or

Sloane > Rockliff
Vandenberg > Lever through DPP

or any other options?

    BarronVonCrow · 22/05/2015 at 00:56

    I've been planning the first one, Jimmy. Worst comes to the worst, you can still upgrade Sloane later and not lose any $ on him.

throttlefinger · 21/05/2015 at 23:43

Sparkling as always, Barron.

Would like to put the VC on JPK or Buddy but Fyfe plays at the same time. So going to roll the dice with Pendles again.

Good luck to your Crows. I sent the GWS boys the first two Die Hards to motivate them against your squad. Get ready to hear a lot of this…

    BarronVonCrow · 22/05/2015 at 00:57

    Haha, it's actually the first time I've been worried about the Crows playing GWS. Normally it's 80 point thrashings, Tom Lynch kicking 10 goals and Danger putting up awesome Supercoach scores. It's a weird feeling, let me tell you.

      throttlefinger · 22/05/2015 at 01:10

      Think if the game was at the Oval you'd clearly win. But playing at Spotless and Crows missing key players will give GWS a much better chance to pull it off. Think Betts could go off, though.

Tofor · 22/05/2015 at 14:35

I've reversed trades about 47 times ha ha.
I have 209k in the bank. 22 Trades Remaining.

Possible trade out players in priority: Vandenberg, Lumumbra, Lonie, Oxley, McIntosh, Cripps, Whitecross
Players I'm keen on getting in: Tom McDonald, Rockliff.

What to do; my trade was just the standard vandenberg to Rockcliff.
My midfield is fairly stocked though: Fyfe, Pendlebury, Kennedy, Parket, Griffen, Lewis, Cripps, Ellis Yolmen. (Bench vandenberg, sheed, mcKenzie). I feel like I'd benefit more (get a higher score boost) from getting McDonald into my defence. Oxley, Lumumbra, McIntosh, these guys are likely to get a bad score. Cripps and Ellis Yolmen are much more likely to get 80-100+ Imo.

I'd love to hear your advice on what move I should make. One, two, or hold.

    Tofor · 22/05/2015 at 16:06

    Vandenberg -> Rockcliff

    OR

    Oxley -> McDonald

Jimmy Joe · 22/05/2015 at 14:36

Should I put Selwood or Rocky into my mid this week community?

    AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 22/05/2015 at 17:47

    Selwood

Dr.Kelso · 22/05/2015 at 14:52

if you could have 2, who would you choose?
Priddis, L.Parker. T.Mitchell, Rocky?

    Coxeroni · 22/05/2015 at 15:04

    Mitchell and Priddis

      AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 22/05/2015 at 17:35

      Priddis and Mitchell

AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 23/05/2015 at 00:35

Loser skippies!!!
