Patch’s Panic Room – Round 13

Published by Patch on

Patch - Supercoach Panic Room Master“Play Supercoach,” they said. “It will be fun,” they said.

I tweeted this last weekend and it is just as true now with me fumbling through trades as it was peeking at my score last weekend.

I didn’t have too bad a week score-wise, but plenty did. Few scraped 1800. Many passed the 1700 mark. Some missed 1600. I won’t lie to you community, this is up there with Round 23 2014 – the round of death where all our premiums pulled out – as the worst Supercoach round I have seen.

I take some of the blame. I said we had been spared. I was wrong. The Supercoach Gods did not take lightly to being challenged. I apologise. I will not challenge them this week.


THE NEWS

*first, to our eye in the sky on #GazWatch*

Gary Ablett, our Lord and Saviour, will not return this weekend, despite apparently training the house down. He has retreated to his den of scented candles and ancient scriptures to relearn the Ways of the Football.

Kane Lambert – the Lamb of God – has returned to us. For those of us who held him, for all these rounds, there is a just reward. However, Hugh Goddard STILL HASN’T BEEN PICKED. [muffled screaming]

Dayne Beams is clear of any injury to his shoulder this week and is fine to play for Brisbane. If he missed, I was going to hurt someone.

Bad news for Essendon, as Travis Colyer and Tom Bellchambers are out for the season and 10 weeks respectively. While Colyer isn’t Supercoach relevant himself, the hole he leaves may have to be filled by Shawn Edwards, increasing his job security. Tom Potato – hang on, I seem to have misspelled Bellchambers there… oh well) now must leave your teams. Bid him farewell.

Speaking of Essendon, Shaun McKernan has been elevated off the rookie list and is straight into the Bomber’s side. Keep an eye on him, this kid has been averaging 120 in the VFL. While the AFL is a huge step up, he might make decent coverage.

Furthermore, both Orazio Fantasia and Paul Chapman have groin complaints and will miss, while Hirdy dropped Ben Howlett, leaving a hole in my draft side. Thanks Hirdy.

Collingwood speedster Ben Kennedy has been dropped from the side this week.

Despite spending a week trudging through the wilderness to find Josh Glenn, he is still evading the Gold Coast spotters out on the surf coast. Admittedly, the spotters are all drunk because the second I let them out of my sight they cover themselves in alcohol, so Glenn could be at home watching Netflix and eating Nachos and no-one would be the wiser. Actually, I sent Clay Cameron to Glenn’s house and now he’s been dropped… hmmm…

Geelong ruckmen Mitch Clark and Rhys Stanley will continue to miss. Obviously, they have their bye, but Clark is listed at two weeks away, while Stanley will miss the season after playing the game of his life against Port.

Finally, Grant Birchall is back, for the few that have him and have held him.


THE PATCH-UP

Max Gawn? I pulled him up two weeks ago. I looked at him and I said, “maybe this kid can do something.” He did 146 somethings on the weekend against Geelong and boy did he look like the real deal. But he hasn’t played a decent ruckman. He hasn’t struggled. He will have bad games. But he might do what he did against Geelong again. I will wait until next week to make a final verdict, but tackles, contested marks and hitouts are combining well. But wait on him.


TRADING PLACES

EDDIE’S

231 – G. Ablett
183 – S. Sidebottom
171 – I. Maric
169 – J. Lewis
168 – R. Gray

-40 – A. Boston
-39 – E. Kavanagh
-31 – H. Beasley
-17 – A. Neal-Bullen
-16 – T. McLean
-6 – Dylan Buckley


THE ROOKIE RUMBLE

PLAY THEM.


Godspeed, community. At least it can’t be worse than last wee-

I mean, let’s hope we have a good week this week, and hope the supercoach gods don’t smite me. Please. please… please…

Is Heppell a good option or is it worth waiting a week for Ward?

Marcus

Heppels a gun

Youngy

Bring in Heppell

Patch

I really like Heppell. Will likely start in my side next year, and I reckon he'll come home with 115 average.

jarrad

Great stuff

Liam

Community I need your help.
Who should I bring in, ignoring the byes.
Gawn
Zorko or
Ziebell
Thanks in advance

David

Zorko

BCHawks

Zorko

Youngy

Agree with the 2 above Zorko for sure

Gibbo

Hey everyone do i trade tarrant for edwardes or the bont ? Or another forward under 495 k

I already have gray, goddard, mitchell, franklin, and martin

Thanks in advance !!

randomcliche

PA say mild concussion. I didn't think so. So be wary of Gray turds. I think you need lids and one of swan/dahlhouse. So its edwardes for mine.

Dean

I brought in Edwards last week and he let me down big time, your bonus is you'll get him $30k cheaper then I did.

However that being said your forward line isn't very strong and I agree with Steve, You would be much better off bringing in Swan next week as he will drop to about $493k after his 107 score last night.

Steve

My midfield is this: Fyfe, Pendles, JPK, Sloane, Lewis, Selwood, Rocky Griffen, Motlop Boston and Stretch
I think this is the week to trade griffen out, i will have 670k so can get anyone in, who should i get out of these players to complete my midfield:
Hannebery, Dangerfield, Priddis, Armitage, Beams, Mundy or Montagna?

randomcliche

In reverse order. Mundy (2nd string to fyfe, worse than others), Montagna (Stk will get belted occasionally, plays outside), Hannebery (plenty of comp from Kennedy et al). The next 4 are close, but Beams Armitage and Danger can all share with 1/2 other point hogs, so I'd pick Priddis. But if I was going on form right now, I'd choose Danger. Now watch Griff outscore em all. 😛

Dean

Priddis with out a doubt

Tyler

great article patch! It's a shame about Hugh Goddard.

Youngy

Agreed he has been in my team since the start of the year

@Judep0wer

Give thanks for the Lambert of god.

Oh,and you spelled Aykroyd wrong mate.

Patch

The one week I don't google it… was very time pressed last night which is why I forgot to put up news of Lever, Walker and Gibbs (who are all out this week)

tom

is mckenzie to kavanagh a decent trade?

gives me enough money to get deledio next week and I dont think mckenzie will play much more for the rest of the year

@AusSports84

I turfed him a few weeks ago and haven't looked back – lock and load

motsy

Is it possible to do a 3 way sub?

I want to move mckenzie to def, higgins fwd, and lambert to mids….I have 7 fwds this week.
I can do it while trading, but dont want to trade next week to reverse it..

Donavan

Unfortunately no, unless you are trading at the same time in which case you can move players one at a time into the empty position before bringing in your trade-in player.

Tulendeena

Who to Bring in out of…..

Picken, Hodge, Titch, Lids, Danger, Beams?

All in their respective lines
help will be appreciated 😀

Mac

Hodge, Titch, and Beams

Tulendeena

I meant to say one of the six ;p

Tyler

Beams

Patch

Picking one player or three?

Danger, Beams, Hodge, Lids, Picken, Titch for mine.

Jordan

Shane Edwards or Alex Pearce, who is the better downgrade option in defence

Patch

Edwards.

Jordan

Cheers

Mac

What's Neal-Bullen and McLean's JS like?

Youngy

both of them have pretty bad JS

TOM

Thoughts on Tarrent, McKenzie, Lever to McLean, Lambert, Bob Murphy?

Youngy

Don't like McLean's JS

Georgezzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Need some money this week, would it be worth trading in Sam Colquhoun even though he has a bye???
P.S. I'm willing to cop a donut

randomcliche

Sounds like you're stuffed mate. Why not Pearce and Edwards?

Patch

Not sure on Colquhoun yet. I'd go for a Steele or Kavanagh

sloaney28

Trade Griffen or Yolmen out? Got 18 playing if I trade yolmen. Will griffen perform and be a keeper?

@AusSports84

His 100 was against North Melbourne who let every midfielder crack the ton. I know this because I support them. Griffen is gone for me this week!

Youngy

Great right up Patch it always is!

Here are my trades this week Community
Clark to Steele and Hogan to Smith. Leaving me with 250k in the bank to play with next week?

Or do I just trade Hogan to Smith? and just have one trade this week?

14 trades 6k in bank here is my team http://gyazo.com/df90eada400c9b0e06b37199ff5f1dba
Would appreciate everyone's thoughts!

Patch

I'd hold Clark for one more week; if he's back he'll make cash while Steele has another week on the bubble

Doc2Drej

This round I went CEY, Rich and Dmac to Sloane, BSmith and Colquhoun. I know Colquhoun has the bye this round but I needed the cash for the other upgrades and he will be a reasonable scorer in the future. In the next few weeks I will look to bring in some fallen premiums, and here is my team as it stands:
D: Shaw, Higgins, Newnes, Oxley, Smith, Brown (Colquhoun, Marchbank)
M: Fyfe, Pendles, Neale, Shiel, Parker, Sloane, Jelwood, Rocky (Saad, Heeney, Lambert)
R: Goldy, Maric (Obrien)
F: Martin, Dahlhaus, Swan, Buddy, Mitchell, Tarrant (Krak, Steele)

Thoughts??

TOM

You could of traded Heeney…. he is injured. Why you still have him is a question only you can answer. I think Tarrent should go before Rich and Dmac

Paul Walnuts

SC points almost 1/2 time -PIES – Pendles – 71,Swan – 54, Cloke – 32, Oxley – 32, Fasolo – 65, – DOCKERS – Fyfe – 71, Sandi – 68, Mundy – 58, Neale – 56

Derek

Cloke 32SC at 1/2 time. 50Sc at 3/4 time and finishes with 46SC. Lol

Derek

At least he made his 35 BE

Blake

G’day community,

I’m currently ranked 231 and am genuinely looking at giving the 50k a run for it’s money. Do you reckon this team can take me right to the pinnacle??

Def: Laird, Gibson, Newnes, Saad, B.Smith, Shaw (Hamling, Beasley)

Mid: Fyfe, Pendlebury, Steven, Kennedy, Parker, Sloane, Selwood, Priddis (Wallis, Lambert, Steele)

Rucks: Goldstein, Jacobs (O’Brien)

Fwd: Swan, Dahlhaus, Martin, Franklin, Edwards, Gray (Motlop, Read)

8 Trades Remaining

10k Remaining

randomcliche

Blake, great effort and don't give up. I think you need Hodge DEF and Lids FWD asap to be in with a chance. Look up my team 'randomcliche'

randomcliche

I think I need a bit stronger MID and Kade Simpson.

Glorin

Great looking team. One of the best all round , with depth I have seen.
Best of luck.

Phil

Great team buddy. I wouldn't get Delidio, your best chance of winning is not getting him. His Achilles could play up and hurt all the teams above you. Infact I wouldn't do anything to your FWD line or RUCKS ( unless injuries occur)

Backline I reckon Hodge or Simpson in soon. Obviously it would be much better if you could keep Saad at D7 for depth if possible.

Keep Lambert & Steele all year. Trade your most under performing MID premium for Rockcliff when he returns, probably Wallis. Good luck

@AusSports84

Great side mate. I'm 163 overall with the same trades and here are our matchups.
Hodge vs Laird
Higgins vs Gibson
Oxley vs B.Smith
Beams vs Steven
Dangerfield vs Parker
Cripps vs Priddis
Maric vs Jacobs
Goddard vs Dahlhaus
Deledio vs Edwards

Pretty good contest, I love your DPP with Motlop and Wallis on the bench too is huge. Good luck mate!

Dogs

Great looking team , great depth. Could use a loophole player for the mids tho to use between Wallis /selwood. Still plenty of time to strengthen the backline.

Bridget

How does the VC loophole work for the bye rounds?

SammyBoy

Same as always, except you can also put the captaincy on a player who has the bye this week, such as gray, it just makes it easier!

Youngy

As it normally does. Bye players get locked out when the last game of the round starts I think

hedski

Robbie Gray out Jessie White in.

Derek

I was hoping at least one of Lever, McKenzie or HGoddard got named this week.

Will be lucky to get 18 on field this week, and one of them is Cloke who managed 46 (after being on 52 at 3/4 time)

Can trade in Lambert, but he will probably get the vest

Derek

I have a bad feeling about this week.

Derek

Had Ibbotson from the start. Traded him out last week. 132SC as a farewell gift

Youngy

Bad luck Derek, If you have to trade in Lambert to field 18 I would. He might give you some extra points maybe 50. And 50 points is a lot when your ranked close to the prize!

Donavan

Highest score ever for a player that didn't get a kick – Sandilands – 132 points (provisional score)

SCaddict

HTA baby!

dognino

Why are people jumping off Gray?
Anyways, here's my nearly complete team , next week I'm turning labumba into shaw , other than that gonna have to hold off trades until finals as I've been hit hard by injury sideways trades like everyone else this year. Just 8 left.

Hodge, Simpson, yeo, saad,smith, labumba (a. Pearce , lever)
Fyfe, Pendles, Parker, beams,wines, ward, Wallis, Cripps ( Boston, Mckenzie, lambert)
Jacobs, Nic Nat ( cox)
Gray, dusty, titch, buddy, swan,Bont (Steele,lonie)

hedski

I’m getttin off gray cos Jesse White is too good to refuse.
Thats a crackin team slaughter the prince.

dognino

Why Jesse White? Surely that's a joke? Gray is the 3rd most traded out of my team , do people think he's gonna start playing like b smith because of his head knock?

hedski

Joke mate. Jesse White is the best shot at goal in the comp.

Derek

He really should have been given -20SC for that miss

hedski

Nothing better than watching the maggots implode. JW will get lynched.

Don

Need Kamdyn gone, got $190k in the salary cap(so $500k when trading him) and a DPP option! Would love get some advice! cheers

Derek

Can you wait until next week and get McGovern. He will be rested after his bye and hopefully over his niggly injuries

Spifflicator

Im in the same boat Don. Tossing up b/w Hodge, Houli, Laird & Simpson, going to be a long day.

@AusSports84

I feel your pain mate. However, last week I had the same problem in deciding between Deledio, Dahlhaus, Edwards and Smith. In the end I paid the big bucks and took Lids because in the end he's the best. Did the same again with Hodge this week. With trades running out, I'm just getting the best of what I don't have.

Spifflicator

I like that reasoning AP84! Hodge this week, then one of the other 3 for Oxley next week.

BundyBear

The Fremantle and Colingwood game didnt make Fremantle a better team then Collingwood. They were lucky they didnt get beaten. No im not a Collywobble supporter. Am an Eagles supporter.

hedski

Freo cant kick a big score. No good in shootout have to play shitty lock down rossy style.

Chris

Hi community! Thoughts on my team pls? Have $144,700 in the bank with 10 trades left.
Shaw, Simpson, Gibson Newnes, Lever, McIntosh, Hamling, Pearce
Fyfe, Pendles, Beams, Wines, JPK, Parker, Cripps, Jelwood, CEY, Boston, Dumont
Goldstein, Nic Nat, Read
Martin, Mitchell, Gray, Dahlhaus, Swan, Tarrant, Krakouer, Dale

Maybe thinking of McIntosh to B.Smith, CEY to Sloane cause his value at his price but I'll then have 9 premo midfielders and Tarrant to maybe Lambert?
Not sure what trades to make, so open for any suggestions. Thanks!

Stickman

Thinking of going 2 down 1 up this week.
These downgrades should give me the cash to make my last upgrade next week to hit full premo.
I'm thinking Hogan down to McLean
McKenzie down to Beasley
and McInosh up to Hibberd.
Thoughts community?

Dann

I like Hibbard with Essendon's draw after this week,

Personally like Edwards more than Beasley but he's not on the bubble.

Stickman

What do you see Edwards JS like, because if he doesnt get to three games it could be a problem

OldOcker

MY SINCERE APPOLOGIES TO JESSE HOGAN: After witnessing you play on ANZAC day I said to myself here we have a real football player and you would be the last rookie that I would trade out of my team.
Unfortunate circumstances have arisen and I have found it necessary to go back on my word.
Sorry mate.
You are becoming Nick Riewoldt this week to bring me up to full premo for round 14.
Thank you for your services you are a great footballer and I shed a tear as we part but I need a score this week Buddy.

I am sure you will understand

Cheers Bloke.

carlashirley90

Yep I wanted to keep him too but downgraded him to Lahahahambert.

Rick Grimes

What’s the JS like for Edwards and Kavanagh? Don’t want to get stuck with another Glenn. Am I better to take a donut then touch these blokes?

Dann

Edwards JS is solid

Rick Grimes

Well, I was messing around with trades and pushed go, somehow forgetting that less than 12 hours ago round 13 kicked off. So I’m stuck with them now regardless. Hope they play a few games… Sooo many rookie mistakes this year!

Dann

What do people think of Tarrent to McKernan as ruck forward cover?

Mckernan looked good in his only game and that was as a 2nd Ruck.

derek

please don't

carlashirley90

As ruck cover on your fwd bench yes will be a smart inclusion but wait and see how he is used
Getting your fwd line completed is more important if you have not already

@AusSports84

Your idea could be genius Dann. I'd hold on it for a week and get a better look this round. Always best to decide on the bubble!

Patch

Next week that could be a very neat trade. For now, watch and wait.

Mitch

Strapped for ideas what to do this week. COMMUNITY HELP!

Team is
Backs – shaw, newnes, kolojasni, hodge, mcintosh, lever, hamling, mckenzie
MIds – fyfe, pendles, selwood, parker, griffen, beams, shiel, cripps, dumont, steele
Rucks – goldy, maric, cox
Forwards – gray, dahlhause, goddard, d.martin, edwards, swan, tarrant, lambert

14 trades and 252k in the bank
Have 18 playing this week

To trade griffen to sloane/jpk or hold?
mcintosh to smith?
then possibly bring in another rookie?

Thanks for your help community in advance

carlashirley90

Do those 2 trades will bolster your team massively
Also look into getting Burgoyne in your midfield bench for swing bench cover later on if you can

Mitch

Thoughts on Burgoyne? Looks inconsistent

carlashirley90

That he is this year but is super cheap and if you can use him in your midfield bench will prove very useful to cover you backline once you complete those last 2 spots there

derek

Having Good DPP swings sets is the key to the second half of the season, as trades become scarce, players become injured or rested (looking at you Ross Lyon) and there are the inevitable Late Outs, you need to be able to swing players around for cover.

remember the classic 3-way cover that SMartin offered last year.

There are many options for FWD/MID swings.

There are very few good DEF/MID DPP players (last year there were heaps). Hodge is the standout, but you already have him, plus he is a perfect reason to have good cover, he will be rested!

The player who I have my eye on is McGovern. However he has DEF/FWD DPP. I already have HGoddard in my Forward line to swing him with.

Spifflicator

I wouldn't touch Brodie Smith with a 20' barge pole until he turns in a half decent game.

Rick Grimes

Smith found plenty of ball last week, just poor execution. Reckon he’ll be better with that game under his belt. Expecting a 90+ for shizzle.

TOM

Is it time to trade Lonie?

SCaddict

He's a likely season long keeper on my bench given his solid JS and my low trade count.

Mac

Are these good trades?

Lever to Edwards
Lonie to Lambert
Tarrent to Mitchell with $131,000 in the bank?

Youngy

It would be better if you could wait a week on Lambert but other than that good trades!

Youngy

Never seen this before. Herald sun live HQ OFFLINE!
http://gyazo.com/688dc147e394644d2c82d98d74bc8886

carlashirley90

Got 6 trades left with 157k in the bank.
Have done my trades last night
Hogan to Lambert
Griffen to Pendlebury
Leaver to Hodge

Now I need to try sit on this starting 22 for 4-5 weeks (fingers crossed)

Hodge, Shaw, Higgins, Rance, Pittard, Smith
Fyfe, Pendlebury, Hannebery, Dangerfield, Beams, Ebert, Trelaor, Sloane
Goldstein, NicNat
Gray, Swan, Dahlhaus, Franklin, D.Smith, Zorko

Good enough team I am ranked little more than 1200 but this team won't get me much higher sadly.

derek

I like that you have a number of POD players. If there is a disaster week where all the big names fail or there are injuries to widely held players, and you avoid the train wreck, you might fly up the rankings with that team.

carlashirley90

never looked at it from that perspective 😀
I just can't wait till I can look into trading Pittard to premium and Boston to Burgoyne in a month from now

Phil

I can see how you've got a good ranking, very solid team. Good luck for the rest of the year

carlashirley90

thanks Phil good luck to you as well

@AusSports84

I'd hold the fort. 6 trades will run out soon and your season will be over.

carlashirley90

Agree yep I need no drama for the next month to make most of the 6 trades I have I want 3-4 trades for finals

Mitchell

Griffen to Sloane or JPK?

OldOcker

Definite Sloane for mine. JPK with the inclusion of Mitchell seems to have a slightly different role.

Tommy

Thoughts on my team? 80k in the bank. 13 trades. Feedback is appreciated.

Simpson, Shaw, Gibson, Hodge, Newnes, Hamling, Pearce, Lever
Fyfe,JPK, Beams, Selwood, Parker, Treloar, Priddis, Rocky, Steele, McKenzie, Dumont
Goldy, Maric, Read
Gray, Swan, Martin,Franklin, Dahlhaus, Tarrent, Lonie, Goddard

My thoughts are going:
Tarrent to Lambert, Lever to Edwards and Lonie to Mitchell. That will leave me with over 100k in the bank.

Thoughts? Or any other suggestions will be much appreciated.

carlashirley90

Sound trades but you will struggle to get D6 after these trades won't you

Tommy

What do you suggest then Carla? Would love to hear from you!

carlashirley90

Hard one to work out for you 🙁
But I like the 3 trades you are doing
Dogs have a great run home from now on and Bont will save you 100k over Mitch but huge call on scoring output by comparison…. But that 100k extra will help you upgrade one of those def rookies to a fallen premium defender hmmmm your team Tommy just do mock trading via calculator ok

Tommy

I could go Tarrent to McLean, McKenzie to Lambert, Lever to Bob Murphy?

carlashirley90

stick with your gut feelings whilst being mindful of how you will reach full premo
Your team looks very solid especially with the trades you thought of doing by getting Mitch in (gun)

Tommy

Becuase I was thinking, with the first trades and that 100k in the bank, I could end up subbing McKenzie into the backline and upgrading him. Or just holding firm until rookies fatten up

Ryan

Ricky Henderson still not back.

Should I bring in B. Smith?
OR go for a Houli/Yeo?
OR hold for and get a Picken/Shaw in the coming weeks?

@AusSports84

Hold for Shaw, he's clearly the best.

NateCrows

I see what you did there

Phil

Trust me, I have both and barrack for neither….Sloane by a mile

Mac

Take Fyfe's score?

Flozza

Of course

Spifflicator

Hell yes!

carlashirley90

not many can crack 140 with the premiums we have left this round so yeah take it

Youngy

FyfeIsLife!

@AusSports84

What are coaches thoughts on job security of McLean Edwards and Kavanagh

Patch

Pretty good. McLean looks composed and a good player, Essendon need Kavanagh's run now Colyer is down and Edwards looks a player. Could change in the blink of an eye, but right now I'd be happy with any of them.

Patchoo

Hey everyone

Who should i get as my 6th forward

Bontempelli, or shane edwardes or nick riwoldt

( without injury affected game riewoldt is averaging 103)

Help needed !! Thanks !

OldOcker

Due to affordability I am bringing in Nick this week to bring me to full premo for round 14.

Patch

With Ocker here. Dex wrote him up wonderfully.

Cliffy

Great stuff as always Patch.

Pendles, Fyfe, Swan, and even Ibbotson were awesome! A.Pearce, oh well I’m 18+ in terms of players playing this week so think he will drop out of the scoring system for my squad when the weekend is over.

Just wanted to ask guys, I ideally wanted to have at least 10 trades come the end of Bye rounds purely for injuries only, but if I do these moves this week I’ll have significant cash generation in my bank (Tarrant – Steele) and possibly save myself from future mental issues (Griffen – Sloane), cause Griffen’s 116 last week I think based on his season is fools gold for me:

Griffen – Sloane
Tarrant – Steele

I’d ultimately be left with 9 trades after making these moves… I could possibly wait on the Steele trade though since he still needs a few more games before he goes up in price, plus Tarrant and Steele share the Bye this week so maybe just the Griffen trade looks the most ideal?

Cheers guys 🙂

Patch

If you're at full premo with 9, go for it. I would hold on Steele for a week, however. Don't want him to pull a Josh Glenn on us.

Cliffy

Cheers Patch, yeah wouldn't think that would happen with Steele, but between weeks its a fair bit of time.

shemm

hi guys should we be trading mckensie? will he come back into the side

Patch

I'm hoping he will, but even if not he is valuable swinging with Newnes. But if you need cash he can certainly go; no timeframe on return as he's been dropped, not injured.

Tulendeena

Picken or Hodge

Heavily leaning towards hodge, so someone convince me that Picken is the bees knees

@AusSports84

Death Taxes Hodge.

Youngy

Hodge in a blink of an eye

cozza

I went both Hodge and Picken in the last 2 weeks. Picken had a terrible 3 first weeks, but been a revelation since then – still a bit of a POD and if he keeps this up he is well worth it. Hodge is less risk, Picken has more upside in my view.

derek

Hodge is just too expensive.

Roccosmodernlife

My mids, Fyfe, Pendles, JPK, Parker, Wines, Selwood, Wallis, Cripps.

Pretty sick of Selwood too early to be sidewaysing?

Gareth

Should I spend serious coin to get in Dahl for my F5 or save some coin and get Roo?

Youngy

Agree with Pieman Dalhouse more likely to play more games and I believe he will average more than Roo

Gareth

Thanks for the advice. I hear you, but Dahl will leave me broke, so he better perform.

derek

pay the price!

You must have heard Yabby's half time speech during the 1989 GF

"Pay the price today, because you can't come back tomorrow."

I would love to find a full transcript of that speech

Youngy

Oxley 50, and Pearce 30. Not good

@AusSports84

Please don't undersell Ox, it was 51 😉

Youngy

To be fair I undersold both of them. Pearce scored 34.

I'd edit it for ya but for some reason I can't edit that comment

Jobe

Just going for Premiership in cash league – 16 trades left 256k in the kitty.
Simpson, Houli, Shaw , Ibbo, Newnes, Saad, Hamling, McIntosh
Fyfe, Pendles, Rocky, S. Mitchell, Sheil, Barlow, Rich, Yoleman, Miller, Boston, Lamb of God
Goldy, Nic Nat, O'Brien
Gray, Swan, Franklin, Dahlhaus, TMitch, Tarrent, TBC, Krak

Option 1
Rich to Sloane, McIntosh to Smith, Yoleman to Steele – 400k left for next week TBC to Lids

Option 2
Rich to Soane, Yoleman to Parker, Miller to Steele, Miller to Parker (or any player) 226k TBC and Tarrant for Lids next week.

Love some community wisdom

derek

you have to be happy with Ibbotson last night!

derek

TBC must go first. You can't live a proper life with him still in your supercoach team.

Dean

Option 2 mate by a long shot because its all about bringing elite premiums now. I don't consider Smith a elite premium this year due to his two concussion.
