I got a bit excited and I think I broke the Zach Merrett button.

    Candy · 05/02/2016 at 01:02

    Broken like his shadow of a brother

punter · 04/02/2016 at 15:04

hello community need help who do you suggest will be good midfield pods

    Kev · 04/02/2016 at 15:31

    G’day punter, have a look though the RMT: mega thread. Hundreds of teams to look through. Next week or the week after Jock and the boys will concentrate on mids and get a did discussion happening. Let’s stick to fwds for now

    Which forwards are you keen on mate?

      punter · 04/02/2016 at 15:36

      liking the look of buddy, merret, riewoldt and zorko

        Kev · 04/02/2016 at 15:57

        I like Zorko out of that lot. He was magnificent after his bye. Averaged 114 compared to 84 before it. That suggests a role change, I’ll be interested to see where he plays in the nab cup

    Phat Man · 04/02/2016 at 19:31

    Bryce Gibbs Mate

    Candy · 05/02/2016 at 01:03

    James Podsiadily.. Mars Pods aint bad either bruv

Tom · 04/02/2016 at 15:29

Dont think Barlow will get enough mid time

    @emhoy · 04/02/2016 at 16:38

    Ross Lyon today said Barlow was played out of position last year and will be spending more time in the midfield. Lock him away.

      Ryan · 04/02/2016 at 18:24

      source? Id like to see what he said

        Sana · 05/02/2016 at 09:16


        Lyon said the club would tweak the role of midfielder Michael Barlow, whose form tapered away badly towards the end of the season.

        "We want to play him more inside-mid than last year," he said. "We felt we took him away from his strengths."

Kev · 04/02/2016 at 15:36

Tiger boys for me, Lids and Chopsticks. In early versions of my team I had Shane Edwards. He became really important in the guts last year, if he can make those 70 games into 90’s or low 100’s he’ll be in my team come end of the year

mick · 04/02/2016 at 15:49

martin bennell dollhouse simpkin petracca kerridge rook rook

West · 04/02/2016 at 15:56

Ross said in a q&a today that they will play Barlow more inside mid this year. Surely hes a lock now?

    Kev · 04/02/2016 at 15:59

    West, did he give any update on Bennell? He’s a bit of a flog but has talent to burn.

      West · 04/02/2016 at 16:02

      Not sure Kev. The q&a is on the afl facebook page so have a look there if you want

      Stirlsy · 04/02/2016 at 16:57

      Still training alone mostly Kev, not taking any chances with the calf problem he has. 2 to 3 weeks b4 he trains with main group.
      Don't see him playing in first Nab game they have.

      Titan · 04/02/2016 at 20:16

      Yeah robo said on sen bennell struggling

jordanandeddie · 04/02/2016 at 16:03

Poor Shane Edwards: a career best season last year, followed by elevation into the leadership group and people still keep calling him Shaun..
If it's any consolation Shane, you're in my team!

    jockreynolds · 04/02/2016 at 16:55

    Good pickup! Fixed him up – I'll shout you a pot next time mate.

    Canny the Manny · 04/02/2016 at 20:45

    Ahaha! Shane Edwards is a great POD, I just don’t have the guts to pick him. I swear this year I’ll have nightmares for not doing so!

Shane-o · 04/02/2016 at 16:21

Chopsticks, Barlow and Buddy for mine.
Dusty will be a top 3 forward at season end and can't see any reason why Barlow won't get back to his previous seasons averages making him well underpriced and a top 10 forward. Buddy is the interesting one for me, if his head and body is right, he's priced beautifully to negate the dreaded KPF buffalo jump and all but picks himself.
Zorko will be next in should anything happen to my top 3 picks, Merrett missed out due to 2 factors (Buddy's price and the current over abundance of dons in my team already) and I really wanted to pick Bennell too but will definitely need to see what role he will be playing at Freo and what his mindset is like before I commit to him (also Barlow was 40k cheaper!)

TRIGGER HAPPY · 04/02/2016 at 16:23

Going 4 $500k plus lads up forward with two rooks on ground as I feel these guys are pretty much mids so lock in 4 and look for value in r2 and defence. I have dusty, Dahl, wingard and Bennell in my team ( could become Barlow if not ready Rd 1). I have more confidence these guys will finish in the top fwds than mcv and bartel in the back line.

    Canny the Manny · 04/02/2016 at 20:47

    I’m going the same structure I think, but going with Daniel Menzel at 270k at F5 and then a rookie at F6.

Jimmy · 04/02/2016 at 16:42

gotta say Toby Greene is looking very tempting at only 446k, what do u reckon fellas?

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 04/02/2016 at 16:56

    Said it a few times b a gr8 pick up if he can clean up his disposal efficiency lad couldn’t hit water if he was standing on a boat. Avg 23 possies last year but his disposal efficiency killed him severely affecting his SC scores. The Butcher boy of GWS. Start hitting a few more targets instead of turning it over b a gr8 pick.

      Derek · 04/02/2016 at 17:21

      his numbers at the end of 2014 when he averaged 128 for the last 7 games are very impressive. At the end of 2014 he was valued at $588k. that is elite.

      what happened in 2015?

        Ryan · 04/02/2016 at 18:29

        played forward, hopefully with treloar gone he will be used in the middle

          Canny the Manny · 04/02/2016 at 20:51

          That’s a good point, with Treloar gone, Greene could get the opportunity to get back to his best. Very tempting at that price, we’ll have to see how and where he plays in the NAB, but boy that can be an unreliable source of information at times…

          BKW · 05/02/2016 at 07:46

          Spot on, currently in my squad for this reason

          Danny · 06/02/2016 at 10:02

          S Johnson to take his forward role and Greene to revert to midfield.

    SCaddict · 04/02/2016 at 17:37

    Definitely on my radar. Scoring potential is absolutely there if given the right opportunity and he has his head screwed on right.

    Not sure I can squeeze him into my preferred structure right now but if he has an impressive NAB campaign I may have to find a way.

    wombatsfc · 04/02/2016 at 23:02

    First year gun in a team of kids against experienced AFL footballers 19 games averaged 95. He's obviously a tough bugga
    Second year blues 19 games ave 73 – It happens to many
    Third year reaching potential but only 15 games ave 103 – Fit and healthy this is his baseline.
    Fourth year/last year Attitude issues 22 games ave 83.
    I reckon he's a real good bet unless warnie owns the gambling site.

@t_woof · 04/02/2016 at 16:59

Looks as though a lot of people haven't checked the round one fixture.

Can't go near Dustin Martin @ 569K and Carlton round one.

Jackwatt$ · 04/02/2016 at 17:19

Surely Hogan, Watts & Petracca are all locks in the forward line?

    Bg G · 04/02/2016 at 17:23

    Watts a number 1 contender for never ever think about touching…

      Jackwatt$ · 04/02/2016 at 18:19

      Bg G for some maybe but I only have 2 rules in SC and number 1 s always start with Jack. This could be the year he has his second breakout.

        Jb13 · 07/02/2016 at 23:00

        Is this the real Jack Watts writing this? only he could say that 🙂

Bg G · 04/02/2016 at 17:23

Chopsticks or Joey as F2? Thoughts??

    Ryan · 04/02/2016 at 18:28

    chopsticks, hes younger and has been injury free and consistent for awhile now. I cant see him doing worse than last year.

Tom · 04/02/2016 at 17:33

Chopsticks or Lids?

    Ryan · 04/02/2016 at 18:29

    chopsticks will spend more time in the middle so go for him now, lids will come down in price

    jockreynolds · 04/02/2016 at 19:43

    Choppy for me

Slats · 04/02/2016 at 18:22

Will anyone be tempted on Daisey at 308.7, he’s hurt us before but excellent value if he stays on the park

    Kev · 04/02/2016 at 18:41

    Massive gamble, Slats. His average has taken a nosedive ever since he managed 109 in 2011. Can’t stay on the park. Until he can get some consistency in his game I won’t be going near him

    SCaddict · 05/02/2016 at 01:17

    I might have a speculative crack at him in AFL Fantasy where you get the guaranteed double trades each week and he's even cheaper in that form of the game. But I just can't see any real way I would select him in Supercoach.

    He would have to absolutely knock my socks off in the NAB to even consider the possibility.

      Bailey · 05/02/2016 at 07:40

      You get double trades in SuperCoach too?

        Kev · 05/02/2016 at 07:59

        SCaddict means you get two trades a week in fantasy every week, in supercoach we get 30 that need to last the season

West · 04/02/2016 at 18:45

Apparently Nick Malceski is flying through preseason. Tempting but risky

    jockreynolds · 04/02/2016 at 19:42

    Heard the same westy.. i find that very interesting mate

FootyFanatic · 04/02/2016 at 18:49

Does any one know how Jack Trengove from Melbourne is travelling? Will he be fit for round 1?

    Jackwatt$ · 04/02/2016 at 19:17

    He lives in Melbourne so I assume he travels by car to training and matches but not entirely sure. I think he'll be fit by round 1 but probably find his feet at Casey first. #downgradetargetalert

      wombatsfc · 04/02/2016 at 20:36

      Sometimes he gets a ride with his sister.

        BKW · 05/02/2016 at 07:53


Vlasaraptors · 04/02/2016 at 19:47

What’s everyone’s thoughts on Aaron Hall (FWD/MID) from GCS? Feeling he could be a nice little POD at $428k. Averaged just under 80 last year up 20 points with the same amount of games as the year before and with Dixon now gone it opens up a bit more of a spot in the fwd line for him….

However, only thing that’s stopping me is the possibility of perm additions (barring injury) of God and Jager into the mids which potentially means less time for him. OR it could go the other way and he could get thrown in while God rests up forward.

Someone want to talk me in or out of him?? I know Buddy is super cheap if he is fit and ready to go and possibly Barlow as well


    West · 04/02/2016 at 19:53

    I think a lot of his big scores came from when he attended a lot of centre bounces. With the likes of Gaz, O'meara and Swallow back I doubt he'll get to as many which will probably hinder his output. NAB Cup watchlist for sure

    wombatsfc · 04/02/2016 at 20:39

    He's interesting Vlas apparently he came to the game late and was years off senior fitness when picked up by suns but, he's got talent oozing from every hole in his body. If he's fit enough to play wing and does play wing in Nab I might give him a run instead of chopsticks for rnd 1 at least

    Kev · 04/02/2016 at 22:34

    Had a look at his numbers mate and it makes some interesting reading.

    He played 15 games in 2015, in his first 9 he averaged 16.5 touches, 2.6 tackles, 2.3 marks, and 63.7 SC points (that excludes his 2 sub effected games). The final 6 games of the season he averaged 27.8 touches, 4 tackles, 4.5 marks, and 116.8 SC points.

    Obviously the guy has talent but if he's not running around in the middle it's a massive no

    Peter Jedrys · 04/02/2016 at 22:52

    I’m totally with you. I have been doing massive research on the lad. In the second half of the year he possessions were way up and some massive sc scores. I have him in my side but it’s a ballsy move. But no risk no reward. Jaeger will take some time and you are right with Ablett resting forward I feel he will be a solid outside mid rotation that will get absolutely no attention. Mate I highly suggest to you and to me for that matter to pick him and don’t let people change your mind otherwise we will be the very few blokes kicking ourselves for not backing out judgment.

    Vlasaraptors · 04/02/2016 at 23:24

    Cheers guys, yeah I’m with you on him having to be a solid mid to get the consistent scores and with the addition of some highly impressive guys It’ll be interesting to see. But the numbers are quite impressive when you break it down. I think I’m with you Peter, I’m putting him in and seeing what happens in the Nab cup

    medadsson · 05/02/2016 at 00:23

    Absolute lock for me. Granted O'Meara, Swallow and Ablett are back, one must remember O'Meara and possibly Swallow will be underdone by virture of their recoveries from significant injuries and eased back to fulltime midfield roles. This, coupled with the fact that rotations are down and midfielders will more than likely spend time 'resting' in forward line only means one thing to me and that is that Hall will spend time midfield, particularly early in the season. Well, I hope so 🙂

RobDogs · 04/02/2016 at 20:01

Am looking at Mitch Robinson this year. His numbers were really impressive at the end of last season running through the midfield.

    wombatsfc · 04/02/2016 at 20:43

    I agree Rob and with less rotations the Beamer being so fragile and Mitch being so hard, I reckon we should see him continue to spend a lot of time in the middle.

      HOLLA · 04/02/2016 at 23:28

      Beamer with a clear run is a top 10 player in the league in my magnificent undisputable opinion. One of the first picked in my side. Then again maybe i still havent let go since he left the pies.

        wombatsfc · 05/02/2016 at 00:34

        I agree but if I was Leppa I would be trying to protect the Beamer from hoons and shopping trolley impacts in the carpark. For those occasions I'd use the HQ Monaro that is Mitch Robinson

          Cam · 05/02/2016 at 13:07

          Brilliant analogy, Wombatsfc.

    Jambo · 05/02/2016 at 22:06

    With Redden gone, I think he could average 105 plus (touchwood).

Mac · 04/02/2016 at 20:22

Is Francis priced too high if I already have Parish and Hopper?

    wombatsfc · 04/02/2016 at 20:46

    If he plays the first five and aves over 70 he's an absolute bargain but due to all the top-ups that the worlds biggest cheats have been given he might not play a high scoring role and better profits could be made from a 123,900 player who aves 55.

Shaneo · 04/02/2016 at 20:37

Zorko ,dusty ,and dalhaus above 450k

Tom · 04/02/2016 at 20:45

Is it bad to go in to the season without dusty?

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 04/02/2016 at 21:42


      TRIGGER HAPPY · 04/02/2016 at 21:45

      Sorry misred that thought it said daisy! Dusty is up to u but chopstix is in my starting lineup.

    wombatsfc · 04/02/2016 at 22:32

    Could be a game winning move Tom.
    Based on his prior performances he'll be significantly cheaper and only averaging 91.6 after the first 5 rounds.

    Opponent- Ave – Games
    Blues 72.7 – 11 games
    Pies 86.9 – 7 Games
    Crows 110.1 – 7 games
    Eagles 99.8 – 6 Games
    Dees 88.0 – 8 Games
    Ave V the first five is 91.6
    His ave against the 4 after that (Port,Hawks,Freo,Bullys) is only 92.3

      wombatsfc · 04/02/2016 at 22:46

      Statistically the time to get chopsticks is after Tigers V cheaters in round 10 before he plays the hoppers in 11.
      His historical ave against his first 10 opponents is 91.76 his ave against the 3 after round 10 is 108.8, first 5 after rnd 10 ave 105.5

    Peter Jedrys · 04/02/2016 at 22:54

    Screw the sticks mate. He a massive douche and no room for him. Karma will come and kick him in his chopstick and he will sit on the sidelines

    Just joined, thanks

LuskinStar · 04/02/2016 at 21:53

Lids, Wingard, Merritt, Billings, Greene and Jed Anderson on field. Coping a hiding over Billings in other forums. What do you guys think?

    hedski · 04/02/2016 at 22:32

    Overs I reckon. Very risky.

    Kev · 04/02/2016 at 22:42

    Take out his one massive game where he kicked 3 in the last quarter he averaged 76. Pass

    wombatsfc · 04/02/2016 at 22:51

    At least Billings has played good footy at the top level. Jed is the one you should be slapped for

      HOLLA · 04/02/2016 at 23:22

      Haha youre a gentleman and a scholar wombats.

    LuskinStar · 05/02/2016 at 08:52

    Thanks for the feedback guys. Hasnt changed my mind though, still comfortable with Billings.Wombat mentioned that Jed is a dodgy selection.i am less adamant on him and plan to monitor him in Nab Challenge.

wombatsfc · 04/02/2016 at 23:10

Was Laverde Pre or Post Syringe Jim and the chemical Brothers? i.e is he one of the 34?
The lad has talent to burn

    HOLLA · 04/02/2016 at 23:19


    Bender · 04/02/2016 at 23:38

    No, last year was his first year of footy, he was taken in the 2014 draft

      HOLLA · 04/02/2016 at 23:53

      I reckon post bender

        wombatsfc · 05/02/2016 at 00:26

        Thanks guys. Risky price but mountains of upside. Woosha is smart man and I reckon that he'll use the freebies to support the future. Poor Dyson got got buried by a steaming pile of hirds and i reckon this kid could imitate Dyson's initial progression and have a massive increase in SC ave.

HOLLA · 04/02/2016 at 23:21

What a great little vote um thingy to see how one is thinking in comparison to the majority. Lots of love for barlow…what am i missing???

Steeeve · 04/02/2016 at 23:48

Thinking of going with Dahl, Barlow and Buddy then Anderson or Simpkin at f4 to start (plus rookies). Almost 100k in the bank. Worth shaving cash to upgrade f4 to Bird??

    wombatsfc · 05/02/2016 at 00:30

    Hi steeeve, F4 is integral to success you need somebody guaranteed to play 22 games baring injury or suspension at F4.
    I'd add the 100k to Anderson or Simpkin and get something a bit more reliable. Of course nab could show both Jed and Simple to absolute must haves

    Candy · 05/02/2016 at 01:01

    Keep cash bruv or invest elsewhere, I'm not sold on bird. The only dons im sold on are M.Brown and Simkin tbh

      Derek · 05/02/2016 at 10:19

      Simpkin is almost rookie priced, seems a no-brainer if he is going to be in their best 22.

Shaneo · 05/02/2016 at 00:47

Anyone considering bird ? Is bird the word ? Highly considering At f4 from get go

Candy · 05/02/2016 at 00:59

Danger and Selwood, two bloody beautiful thoroughbred specimens reunited at long last. danger happy and home and selwood to relinquish the tag.. thoughts?

    BKW · 05/02/2016 at 07:53

    Yep but Selwoods foot issues mean he could be a slow starter (on top of the fact he is a historically slow starter) – possible mid season trade in for me.

    Danger is a lock though!

      Derek · 05/02/2016 at 10:25

      i have Fyfe, Gaz, Pendles, JPK & Rocky.

      Danger will be an upgrade target, or should i try and squeeze him in, who should make way?

        Derek · 05/02/2016 at 10:45

        i have just enough cash to turn Pendles into Danger.

          Redgumwon · 05/02/2016 at 13:18

          Turn Pendles into Danger and get Pendles later in the year. Danger @ new club and back home will mean big year IMHO

    hedski · 05/02/2016 at 10:39

    Danger was my first lock, at the mo going danger gaz rocky parker libba jom crouch rook rook rook rook

BundyBear · 05/02/2016 at 01:22

Whats wrong with Josh Kennedy from the Eagles ? I had him last year and he is comming back into my team again this year, Proved he was he best. Dustin martin is a dreamer who wont go anywhere this year, Too far up himself

    Candy · 05/02/2016 at 02:23

    The greatest athletes of all time are dreamers who aim big and score big my friend

Grahame Lebroy · 05/02/2016 at 09:02

Dusty is no dreamer, his past SC stats prove that. his last 5 years he av; 98,88,101,99,105. He Is nearly 25 coming into his prime. He has played 6 yrs, games wise; 21,22,20,22,21,22 so he doesn’t go missing injury wise. I think his average of 105 will increase this year. He should finish in at least the top 10 fwd scorers most likely top 5. Does that make him a safe pick to keep all year, thoughts?

    hedski · 05/02/2016 at 10:42

    Absolutely. Lock.

hedski · 05/02/2016 at 10:34

Have him locked f4 for now waiting for nab

    hedski · 05/02/2016 at 10:35

    Sry that was for shaneo above re the bird

      Shaneo · 05/02/2016 at 14:28

      Me too mate

Derek · 05/02/2016 at 10:48

Wingard only received 16% of the vote. Almost makes him a POD.

I have him in my team, but feel that he over-achieved last year and doesn't play enough mid-field to justify his price tag.

I have the cash to have Zorko instead of Wingard. I think he will be in the guts and will be a better option.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 05/02/2016 at 10:56

    Wingard all the way for mine

      Swans2012 · 05/02/2016 at 12:38

      I’m with you trigger although I am considering Barlow instead atm

    Candy · 05/02/2016 at 13:56

    I worry that no monfries may mean more forward dwelling for young chad

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 05/02/2016 at 18:52

      Sam gray will take Monfries role

Pete · 05/02/2016 at 11:52

Sam Gray boys from port. Mature age and coming into his third year. His back end of the year was enormous with the final four games where they found he is most effective pure mid and averaged 32.5 touches and 118 pts per game. I mean at $480k he is a keeper this year for sure. There are times where you do your research and you stumble on a player and you go, BANG BANG BABY!
My fwd this year will start as


Derek · 05/02/2016 at 11:57

I'm trying to stick with the same starting structure as last year.

Defence – 3 premiums
Midfield – 5 premiums
Ruc – 1 premium
Forwrds – 3 premiums

Each line i have identified 1 'fallen premium' who may become a keeper (the Sam Mitchell of last year, but hopefully not the Travis Cloke)

Rookies to fill up the rest of the team, meaning 6 onfield rookies and cash-cows.

Current Team:

KK, Bartel, Yeo – BSmith – Brown, Hibberd (Rice, Collins)

Dangerfield, Pendlebury, Ablett, JPK, Rockliff – Liberatore – Petracca, Cuningham (Keays, Mathieson, VRainbow)

NicNat – Lobbe (Wyatt)

Dusty, Zorko, Barlow – Franklin – Simpkin, Kerridge (Phillips, Long)

Only $2k left

    Redgumwon · 05/02/2016 at 13:31

    I like It Derek and looks a little like my side, with the exceptions my forwards are a little lighter on. I'd like to try and fit in Maxie Gawn if I can

    My side so far

    KK, Bartel, Yeo, Docherty, Yeo, Brown, Adams, Bonner, Broad
    Danger, Pendles, Gazza, Rocky, Wines, Libba, Simkin, Kerridge, Jensen, Cunningham, Menegola
    Martin, Lobbe, Lowden
    Dusty, Zorko, Buddy, Bird, Kennedy (Melb) Patracca, Keough, Sumner

      Redgumwon · 05/02/2016 at 15:04

      I've been tinkering with the side a little what do you think of this

      KK, Bartel, Yeo, Malceski, Brown, Adams, Bonner, Broad
      Danger, Pendles, Gazza, JPK, Rocky, Libba, Simkin, Kerridge, Jensen, Cunningham, Mengola
      Martin, Lobbe, Lowden
      Dusty, Zorko, Buddy, Bird, Kennedy (Melb) Patracca, Sumner
      Bank $24,100 and score 1830 points

    Danny · 06/02/2016 at 10:14

    Risky defence but its a gamble that could pay off for sure

    Tim · 07/02/2016 at 21:27

    would you consider Pearce Hanley as a "Fallen premium?

Grahame Lebroy · 05/02/2016 at 12:16

Like it Derek, so B.Smith , Libba, Lobbe and Buddy r your fallens that u hope to keep? If so all 4 seem very possible.

Does JPK start well or should he be upgrade target?

I think nailing picks D1 – D4 is going to be hard this year

    Derek · 05/02/2016 at 12:44

    last year my "fallen" were Ibbotson, Sam Mitchell, Cloke & Bellchambers. i thinking 2 out of 4 is a good outcome.

    I'm confident Buddy & Smith could stay there all year. Libba will need an upgrade but hopefully will score like a premium until he gets tired. Lobbe is a stepping stone to Goldy.

      Derek · 05/02/2016 at 12:54

      JPK SC score from last year.


        Derek · 05/02/2016 at 12:56

        i'll post again with the round



Grahame Lebroy · 05/02/2016 at 12:17

Sorry read your post wrong

    Grahame Lebroy · 05/02/2016 at 21:33

    Fair call there Derik that’s some solid scoring from JPK

Pete · 05/02/2016 at 12:31

Swans2012 · 05/02/2016 at 12:33

Good option no doubt about it

Grahame Lebroy · 05/02/2016 at 12:41

480k for S.Gray seems risky

    BKW · 05/02/2016 at 17:34

    Yeah agree – overpriced?

TRIGGER HAPPY · 05/02/2016 at 13:05

OK I have listened to the SC community about perhaps being a premo short in my mids so have had a re jig to give me a bit more premo in there. Revamped team.

Def: Laird, yeo, Smith, dureya, collins, hibberd, tippa, Bonner.

Mid: Danger, abs, gray or JPK, rocky, Adams, libba, Gresham, keays, cunington, Mattheson, kerridge.

Rucks: Martin, lobbe, korcheck.

Fwd: dusty, Dahl, wingard, barlow, Simpkin, petrecca, brown, Phillips.

No cash left.

Rookies dependant on nab cup so may change Rd 1.

    Keenbutclueless · 05/02/2016 at 13:49

    Looks good. Just looking at your Defence – running the two Adelaide boys there. Is it a case of their scoring potential being dependent on them doing the same role? Also, they have a tough early draw. On that basis, could I suggest Malceski for Smith? The 20k could go to change Tippa to Hartley. I know all rookies are subject to change, but I think Hartley is almost a lock.

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 05/02/2016 at 14:03

      Fair call. Will have a look at nab see how they go together maybe they may share it around and both go well? Can always go laird- kk or bartel or smith – malceski if one goes better than the other if all good and both go alright can do bonner- hartley again depends on who is smashing it.

    Redgumwon · 05/02/2016 at 13:52

    I don't mind it. I think I'd have JPK over Grey and maybe beef up the midfield at the cost of one of the high priced forwards like Wingard?

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 05/02/2016 at 14:04

      Thanks but going with 4 premo fwd line this year.

Westy · 05/02/2016 at 13:27

Any love for Rhys Stanley or Conca?

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 05/02/2016 at 14:07

    Conca definitely a watch at nab cup to see if still in tiges best 22. Stanley at that awkward price but if he can pick up where he left off b a gr8 pick. Not sure how cats gonna fit all the big boys in?

Mac · 05/02/2016 at 16:23

I'm going 4 deep in my midfield, is that 1 short?

Shaw, KK, Bartel, Yeo, Brown, Hipwood, Hibberd, Skinner
Ablett, Pendles, Gray, Rockliff, Libba, O'Meara, Parish, Hopper, Gresham, Keays, Mathieson
Goldstein, Lobbe, Wyatt
Martin, Dahlhaus, Barlow, Petracca, Kerridge, Kennedy, Sumner, Brown

104k in the bank

Aaron · 05/02/2016 at 19:18

Franklin or Barlow?

    'Don't Blush Babby' · 06/02/2016 at 09:14

    I have both atm , Buddy is flying from all reports , but if i had to choose 1 I'd go Barlow especially now that Lyon has said he will play more Mid this year

'Don't Blush Babby' · 06/02/2016 at 09:17

Anyone considering J.Shache ,looks like he will play round 1 and Rockliff has said he is best 18 year old he has seen for a key position player.

    Danny · 06/02/2016 at 10:17

    Could be this years Hogan

Dan · 06/02/2016 at 10:27

So many options down forward but i do think Cockatoo is close to a definite for my team, was extremely raw last season but had that year in the system with a good amount of senior footy, Geelong very keen to have him in the 22, Been shadowing Dangerfield all pre-season and will look to play midfield minutes.

DirtyMike+TheBoys · 06/02/2016 at 13:05

Where is Tex Walker on this list? 449K bargain surely

Tim · 06/02/2016 at 22:30

My team so far:

Def: KK, Rampe, Yeo, Aish, Hampton, Bonner, Hipwood, Hartley

Mid: Pendles, Ablett, P. Hanley, B. Smith, Sheed, Liba, B. Crouch, JOM, Polkinghorne, Hooper and Gresham

Rucks: Nic Nat, Sinclair, King

Fwd: Dusty, Barlow, Greene, Stanley, Simpkin, Brown, Petracca, Gallucci

Feedback on changes is welcome, got 150k spare would like around 80k-100k in case o f any major injuries occur.

jimmydowland · 07/02/2016 at 13:41


& Shane Edwards as a roughie, big chance

Rusty · 07/02/2016 at 18:48

Haha, 31 votes for Shannon Motlop … good luck with that
