Kang Van Der Bang · 24/03/2016 at 09:55

Where is ol Crouching's reveal?

    Lones22 · 24/03/2016 at 11:13


David · 24/03/2016 at 09:57

B or M Crouch?

pros and cons for each please lads!!

    NickV · 24/03/2016 at 10:01

    B Crouch if he plays.
    Is a big risk as he hasn't played in a long time but he has proven he can rack up pill and get 90+ points and his brother hasn't in the real stuff yet.

    derek · 24/03/2016 at 10:06

    if you look at Jocks magazine from last year, they were talking about breakout contenders. there were some numbers for brad comparing him to the past champions of the game, very impressive numbers. However he didn't get to play last year, but he is a year older and stronger. It won't take him long to get back into it.

    although crows early draw is tough, so i'm thinking if he is still in your team at M8 around the byes, that is when we might see the best of him.

    Sarah · 24/03/2016 at 10:07

    B Crouch based on his talent and the fact he was already averaging 90+ in his second year. However Matt has been severley sub-effected and is a ball magnet under the packs. They play different games, Matt is 100% an inside player whereas Brad can do both. If you're worried about Brad's injury history, then pick Matt, otherwise Brad is the better player and will be relied upon more heavily in the crows midfield.

      Pick Me? · 24/03/2016 at 16:59

      Are you single? Sarah you are every Fantasy Football mans dream girl…

        sarah · 24/03/2016 at 21:10

        Haha, no I'm not single, but thanks for the compliment!!

    Southern S · 24/03/2016 at 10:30

    Matt is under rated and like sarah says a ball magnet. Lower risk than brad but also has a slightly lower potential for profit being more expensive. Think matt could surprise some people this year.

    CapTkaOs · 24/03/2016 at 10:41

    Brad for me.There is definitely some injury risk. But he has the potential to make a lot of cash fast. The way he plays, I think he had a high floor too. And if he only holds it together until the byes, he will have more than done his job for my team.

      derek · 24/03/2016 at 11:00

      he will be in my team purely as a cash-cow. When he hits max he will be out.

    Matt · 24/03/2016 at 11:07

    pro – he's a gun, reliable for his price.
    con – possibly low ceiling (wouldnt expect an average above 100), takes up a vital midfield spot.

    I'd be happy to take him in my team but have decided against having both him and Libba

Jimma · 24/03/2016 at 10:08

Really need some good advice here community

out of these choices what u reckon is the best?

Birchall and shiel or Cripps and Gibson

Cheers Everyone and good luck this year, hope u all kill it!

    Southern S · 24/03/2016 at 10:30

    2 for me.

    Matt · 24/03/2016 at 11:08

    Birchall and Shiel.

      Wattsieesq · 24/03/2016 at 13:11

      1 for me

    Benjamima Puddleduck · 24/03/2016 at 14:40

    Cripps + Gibson

derek · 24/03/2016 at 10:23

i don't think i can do it!

Lobbe is not in my starting team.

I've decided to give young Goldstein a go instead, see what he can do.

as a result i've had to downgrade Pendlebury to BCrouch. first year i won't be starting with him, but i do have Gaz!

It came down to Goldy/BCrouch OR Lobbe/Pendlebury.

My starting team will look something like this:

Laird, Bartel, Rich, Smith, Dea, Hartley, (Brown, Collins)

Fyfe, Ablett, dangerfield, Rocky, Libba, BCrouch, Mills, BKennedy (Gresham, Keays, Davis)

Goldstein, NicNat (Wyatt)

Martin, Wingard, Barlow, Wells, Menadue, Kerridge (Adams, Tippa)

just enough cash left for a cuppa coffee.

    Mac · 24/03/2016 at 10:42

    first team i've seen with only 4 premo mids!

      derek · 24/03/2016 at 10:53

      Probably because i don't have Greene/Hall types in the forward line.

      midfield is where we make our cash, can't clog it up with too many premiums.

    SCaddict · 24/03/2016 at 10:46

    I'm mightily disappointed in you Derek. Thought you had bigger aggots to withstand all the Lobbe haters out there.

    Now you have a cookie cutter team just like me. 🙂

      derek · 24/03/2016 at 10:56

      you watch Lobbe be a star now!

      it is the TBC nightmares from last year still haunting me.

      if it wasn't for BCrouch being such a good option in the guts for some cash generation, i probably would have stayed with Lobbe. If BCrouch isn't named…..dunno.

        Southern S · 24/03/2016 at 11:14

        Crows can't afford to be without Crouch if fit. I'm 100% sure he'll be named.

        Pyke said in a press conference he will not be holding anything against Crouch and Atkins during selection for round one.


      Benjamima Puddleduck · 24/03/2016 at 14:42

      Lobbe has fooled everyone and laughing his way to a top 5 ruckman this year….


    Southern S · 24/03/2016 at 10:51

    Eek! That backline.

    Shake n bake · 24/03/2016 at 11:05

    Keep Pendels Derek, chop Ablett.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 24/03/2016 at 11:12

    Peer pressure think it is the right move to pass on lobbe.

      @footy_bec · 24/03/2016 at 12:46

      Agreed and I'm a PAFC fan. He's not up to it right now.

The Weapon · 24/03/2016 at 10:23

Callan Ward or Tom Rockliff?????

    marcus · 24/03/2016 at 10:30

    rocky but ward is a good pod

      Wattsieesq · 24/03/2016 at 13:14

Hey guys, join my community league. Code is 405040. Get in quick!

Southern S · 24/03/2016 at 10:32

Just like to say thanks to everyone involved in this website! There's a tonne of golden information here………

Good luck everybody in 2016.

Andrew · 24/03/2016 at 10:35

Is it too risky having Sheridan and Lonergan at D3 and D4?

    Southern S · 24/03/2016 at 10:49

    I think it is personally, but if it comes off you'll be laughing.

    Risks are what separates us from the pack.

derek · 24/03/2016 at 10:37

Hill is out of the hawks teams for a few weeks with a fractured wrist. Hartung could be a nice POD

    Benjamima Puddleduck · 24/03/2016 at 14:44

    oh shit there goes the POD.

    Billy was a vest man last year too, his numbers without the vest… awe yeah, SEXY

Billy · 24/03/2016 at 10:44

Thoughts please:

Shaw, KK, Rich, Weitering, Dea, Hartley, Adams, Ruggles
Fyfe, Danger, Ablett, Ward, Rockliff, Libba, Mills, Kerridge, Kennedy, Hewett, Davis
Goldstein, Gawn, Loersch
Barlow, Hall, De Goey, Steele, Wells, Menadue, Petracca, AMT

    Marvin · 24/03/2016 at 14:32

    Defense is a bit light on. Suggest a gun there to shore it up

David · 24/03/2016 at 10:44

I have put in Petracca on my bench – why isnt others doing this? you know you will have to get him in eventually – this way it saves you a trade..

he'll only miss maximum 3 weeks.

Am i crazy?


    Southern S · 24/03/2016 at 10:48

    People aren't doing it because someone else could profit in that time.

    If he's not back for three, then it's 5 weeks before you need to trade him in before his price change.

    Plus what happens if his absence is extended for some reason past these rumoured times?

      derek · 24/03/2016 at 10:58

      Goddard was like that last year….didn't get a game until round 16!

    Tim · 24/03/2016 at 10:57

    4 weeks in VFL before being considered for selection

    SCaddict · 24/03/2016 at 11:13

    I really wouldn't start with Petracca if he isn't named as is expected to be the case. Too many variables and uncertainty.

    There are better early loophole options as well.

      Mac · 24/03/2016 at 11:31

      SC addict you made any changes to your team?

        SCaddict · 24/03/2016 at 11:48

        Not yet Mac. It's still pretty much the same as my reveal last weekend other than I think one rookie change.

        Will have to see what happens with the rookies tonight, especially with the ones down back but hoping to keep the identical structure, midpricers and premos if I can.

    Holty · 24/03/2016 at 13:07

    because by the time petracca is about to play his 3rd game, another rookie may have already made 250k. then you can simply swap them if you want.

CapTkaOs · 24/03/2016 at 10:48

For all of us that went with Gaz, what is plan B if he doesnt get named because they dont need him risking injury against the Essendon seconds?
1. Stick fat. He will play rd2.
2. Switch another top liner straight in.

    Southern S · 24/03/2016 at 10:52

    It's an interesting situation, but for me if he doesn't play essendon he's not 100%, I don't want him.

    Brookesy · 24/03/2016 at 10:53

    I think you have to switch.

      Marc · 24/03/2016 at 10:55

      agree with the above, if he's not named he has to go

    derek · 24/03/2016 at 10:59

    2. Pendlebury will step in.

      SCaddict · 24/03/2016 at 11:10

      Yes that will be an option many consider with the prices so similar.

      But I seriously doubt we will need to go there as Gaz has announced he is ready to roll and I would be staggered if Rocket gets in his way.

    Matt · 24/03/2016 at 11:13

    oh boy I dont even want to think about that. I guess I'd probably keep him. He's said he's right to go so even if he does miss Round 1 you'd think he's locked in for Round 2, and unlike previous seasons he's not getting any cheaper than his starting price.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 24/03/2016 at 11:14

    If he doesn't play hannas gets a gig.

    Rick Grimes · 24/03/2016 at 12:11

    Cripps and Shiel were close to selection, so if one of them is killing it I'll be straight on.

    Holty · 24/03/2016 at 13:08

    i have enough spare to straight swap for Danger.

Sam · 24/03/2016 at 10:48

    Wattsieesq · 24/03/2016 at 13:18

    No Fyfe, Rocky and Goldy? You have plums : )

Billy · 24/03/2016 at 10:55

Which option.

Steele, De Goey and Rich


S.Gray, Rookie and Rampe?

    Marc · 24/03/2016 at 10:56

    1st option

murray · 24/03/2016 at 11:00

Hi Community
which option:

Ablett and McGovern OR
RGray and Bartel

Andy · 24/03/2016 at 11:05

Help please I've hav Docherty in my team since the beginning. Should I keep him?

    Holty · 24/03/2016 at 13:13

    who would you swap him for? I dont see this as a bad pick

CoachDamo · 24/03/2016 at 11:09

I've been so focused on my team I haven't thought about the default league I'm in!

Code is 362767.

It'd be great to fill it with members of the JR Community!

Shake n bake · 24/03/2016 at 11:12

So who do we wack vc on??

    SCaddict · 24/03/2016 at 12:05

    Gaz for me assuming he plays of course which I expect to be the case.

    Hanners or Goldy will then be the C if needed.

    Rick Grimes · 24/03/2016 at 12:13

    I'll try and go Gaz. Might only play 70% of the game but he'll have 150 by then.

    Shake n bake · 24/03/2016 at 12:24


      rosy · 24/03/2016 at 12:52

      Crowley has never been able to stop GAJ.
      Since 2010 Garry has played Freo four times in the Home & Away Season – 157, 185, 137, 121 (and a stack of Brownlow votes too!)

Pom · 24/03/2016 at 11:13

KK and B Smith or Laird and J Lonergan? D2 and D3

greg · 24/03/2016 at 11:15

best rookies around 120k mark for each line this will play

    Holty · 24/03/2016 at 13:15

    wait until the teams are named tonight. Too hard to guess this one.

CoachDamo · 24/03/2016 at 11:17

Fyfe and Weitering?


Sidebottom/Duncan/Wines and McKenzie?

    Andy · 24/03/2016 at 11:28


      Wattsieesq · 24/03/2016 at 13:19


    Avzmo · 24/03/2016 at 13:50


    Oh wait I mean 1.

murray · 24/03/2016 at 11:17

Hi Community
thoughts please

option1: Wietering, Dea and 117K rookie OR
option2: BCrouch and 2x 117K rookies

BigHaydos · 24/03/2016 at 11:22

josh kennedy or jack reidwolt??

    Andy · 24/03/2016 at 11:25

    I like the look of jack this year he looks fit but both will be up and down go with hall if you can

    Rick Grimes · 24/03/2016 at 12:14

    I wanted to punt on Jack but couldn't find room/nads. Have a feeling he'll go good. Massive ceiling.

    rosy · 24/03/2016 at 12:58

    Agree with Andy – Go Hall. He'll get midfield time in the first couple of rounds and appreciate nicely.

    However! JR8 looks incredible this year! And he's started running in the midfield more. Massive testicles required for this selection. Could very well be in the top four forwards this year.

Shake n bake · 24/03/2016 at 11:25

Are we starting Menadue on the ground?

    Southern S · 24/03/2016 at 11:32

    If you are happy with a low-ish score in either M8 or F6. Really depends on your structure.

    I will be running him on the mid bench due to lack of midfield rookies under 200k.

    CapTkaOs · 24/03/2016 at 11:42

    Hoping to wait until the next lot of team selections drop tonight and then make a decision before tonights match starts. Will probably start him as F6.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 24/03/2016 at 11:48

    Shaker wacking an E on him on my fwd bench if goes alright will swap wyatt and grimly putting wyatt on the ground if not will give some else a go on field. Get two bites of the cherry this way.

    rosy · 24/03/2016 at 13:07

    He'll be coming up against a fairly useless Carlton unit and will have a large TOG. Very good potential for points.

    Don't forget that he has played a couple of senior games before. He won't be flustered.

    I have him at M8 this round regardless of tonight's selections.

    Holty · 24/03/2016 at 13:17

    have him as emergency in the forward line. if he scores well, ill use my loophole option.

TRIGGER HAPPY · 24/03/2016 at 11:31

With broad not getting a gig got me a little concerned about my weakened Def line.

Team below:

Def: Boyd, laird, weitering, dea, Hartley, adams, (AMT, ruggles)

Mid: Fyfe, god, danger, sheil, rocky, duncan, Hunter, crouch. (Gresham, ?, davis)

Ruck: gawn, dog dog.(wyatt)

Fwd: wingard, Barlow, hall, Wells, kerridge, mendaue. (Brown, Grimley)

But if ruggles and AMT don't get an upgrade or adams doesn't get a gig then Def is stuffed.

So my Def plan B is to downgrade hunter to Kennedy and upgrade adams to longeran.

Really don't wanna do this as I feel hunter is Lachie 2016 and will kill it this year. But may have to play it safe and buckle. Will depends on teams I guess.


    TRIGGER HAPPY · 24/03/2016 at 14:16

    No one?

    Swans2012 · 24/03/2016 at 14:36

    Feeing your pain, I have a similar plan involving downgrading Fyfe to wines to allow for a weitering insertion. It's bloody hard when you use every available dollar to produce something your happy with and then you have to corrupt it at the last second due to bloody rookies….

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 24/03/2016 at 14:54

      Thanks Swans. Yeah put all that time in and rookie selection can change the whole bloody thing.

Kang Van Der Bang · 24/03/2016 at 11:40

Can someone argue why I SHOULDN'T pick Brad Crouch in my side.

I'm trying to toss up between downgrading him to C.Oliver so that I can pump the money elsewhere.

    @footy_bec · 24/03/2016 at 12:50

    He has never played a full season, very injury prone, no idea what type of role he will play in Pyke's team. There are others like his brother, Sloane, Thompson who will all be stealing points from him.

Sam · 24/03/2016 at 11:43

    Jimi · 24/03/2016 at 13:28

    Thing that jumps out at me is you only have 1 POD.

Scsos · 24/03/2016 at 11:52

Just need help picking a M3 out of Ward, Hanneberry, pendles, robbie Gray or even josh p Kennedy!

Leaning towards ward as treloar is gone, he might have a massive season!

Much help appreciated

    MaccasMarvels · 24/03/2016 at 12:05

    All reliable picks there…. pick any with confidence you have a keeper for the season. But that's no help, so Gray or Hanners because they kick goals as well as accumulate and clear.

    @footy_bec · 24/03/2016 at 12:52

    Of those I have 3. My favourite is Gray but can't go wrong I don't think with any of them.

    Holty · 24/03/2016 at 13:26

    pendlebury. Had a terrible year and sti averaged more then the others. But they are all solid and most importantly, durable options

The Beard · 24/03/2016 at 12:13

Ok lads need some last minute thoughts PLEASE :

Running with this squad at present :

Shaw, Simpson, Bartel, Weitering, Dea, Hartley (Brown, Broad)

Fyfe, Danger, Gaz, Rocky, M Crouch, Libba, B Crouch, Mills (Menadue, Petracca, Davis)

Goldy, Nic Nat (Grimley)

Barlow, Greene, Hall, Wells, Kennedy, Kerridge (Adams, AMT)

Thanks lads and have a great Easter!

    rosy · 24/03/2016 at 13:16

    I'd check your rookies. Broad not named and Petracca won't be playing the first three rounds (at least).

MID- danger ablett priddis s.mitchell ward libba mills kennedy (hamiliton clarke davis)

    Sarah · 24/03/2016 at 12:32

    Definitely option 1.

    tophawk · 24/03/2016 at 12:36

    Option 1 by quite a bit.

Ryan · 24/03/2016 at 12:27

Menadue or Corey Ellis

    Marc · 24/03/2016 at 12:48

    Menadue, even though both are starting. Menadue looks to be a stronger player and believe ellis will not fire with the likes of martin surrounding him.

    Flaccid Jaff · 24/03/2016 at 16:04

    Really don't know. Ellis is more inside which is what they need is the higher draft pick and got named on field so I'm thinking him, but he couldn't play NAB whereas Menandue went well.
    With Grigg and LIds coming straight back in, it is likely one is going to get dropped so it's a tricky pick.
    Where they are named on field doesn't matter, but being named on field and not on the bench I think does matter.
    I can afford either, so if only one is confirmed on field at 6:30, I'm picking up whichever one that is, cause there is a spot in that side for one of them to make some serious cash.

tophawk · 24/03/2016 at 12:31

Hi community,

I reckon I have my side for the start of 2016!!

(Subject to no surprises when teams are announced later today)

Feel free to pour scorn over my selections, but the team has been designed to raise cash early, with hopefully enough points still being generated not to fall off the pace. (I do not expect to be one of the top scorers this round, but what I do expect (Hope) is that the rookies start solidly with their break evens plummeting so cash growth momentum starts to build quickly.

I am not starting with Ablett like last year. Too much risk with his ongoing body issues. I agree with you Jock!! Callum Ward is his replacement.

Anyone looking for last minute league…

Come play for the Dennis Cometti Cup


Marc · 24/03/2016 at 12:46

Look's formidable, well done mate. However, big concern in your trust in many unproven rookies. Reconsider your design, today's the big day. Furthermore, tread lightly down forward. Looks a bit too light. Other than those minor hiccups, team looks set for tonights match. Good job billy.

    Billy · 24/03/2016 at 12:48

    Which rookies?

      Marc · 24/03/2016 at 12:51

      Ruggles won't be an insane player this year, might make some coin, but I feel as though it won't be much. These two aren't rookies, but the inclusion of de goey and steele suggests you have big kahoonas. D1 and D2 as premos and D3 and D4 as mid pricers is a far stretch and puts a lot of weight on the shoulders of those men.

        Billy · 24/03/2016 at 12:52

        Rich will play mid time with Beams and Zorko out. Also a great kick. Steele will fill the void left by Treloar and De Goey will play in the middle most of the time.

          Marc · 24/03/2016 at 12:54

          Sorry mate but cannot see your forward line paying off. It's just my opinion

            Billy · 24/03/2016 at 12:58

            no worries, thanks for feedback.

West · 24/03/2016 at 12:49

is it bad that ive hit 'clear team' about 100 times today?

    Holty · 24/03/2016 at 15:24

    only bad if you keep hitting clear and you keep creating the same side.

    pretty strong all over. great looking team mate

    jon · 24/03/2016 at 13:52

    better options down forward, need a deeper midfield. also gawn risky

    @footy_bec · 24/03/2016 at 14:00

    This is a great team. Really like it. Probably one midfielder down but other lines look strong.

Gareth · 24/03/2016 at 13:19

Simpson or Houli?

    Wattsieesq · 24/03/2016 at 13:26


Jeff · 24/03/2016 at 13:21

pendels & ben kennedy
sidebottom & crouch

first option will have ben kennedy at m8 and second one will have mills m8

    jehtt · 24/03/2016 at 13:42

    i reckon 2nd, sidebottom has a low owner % so good pod, but can never go wrong with pendles

Tim · 24/03/2016 at 13:23

is rory atkins a good pick killed it in the nab or will crouch coming in affect his role

    Tret · 24/03/2016 at 13:34

    I actually like him and reckon he could go good this year but at 240k I think youre paying a bit too much. Too hard to fit in for me.

REN · 24/03/2016 at 13:28

Going for a different structure this year.

Shaw, Laird, Harwood, Dea, Brown, Hartley (adams, newman)

Fyfe, Danger, GAZ, Gray, Rocky, Libba, Crouch, Mills (Hewett, Keays, Davis)

Goldy, NicNat (wyatt)

Dusty, Barlow, Hall, Wells, Menadue, Kerridge (McCarthy, Tippa)

Only 5k left.

What do we think? Ive gone light in defence and itll be risky but I reckon those players back there can do the job and allow me to assess the bess defensive options throughout the year rather than trying to pick now.

I could downgrade Hall to Ben Kennedy and Upgrade Dea to Hurn/Smith to add stability to my backline but the way I see it is that Hall is a better option for 400k.

Would really appreciate any feedback!

    marcus · 24/03/2016 at 13:34

    if you were going to downgrade someone id downgrade crouch to kennedy then upgrade harwood.

Sam · 24/03/2016 at 13:29

    Im liking this side mate. I wouldnt be changing too many things. Nice and balanced.

      Locked and Loaded · 24/03/2016 at 14:13

      Cheers Tret… Only thing I'm tinkering with is Fyfe -> Pendles, Laird -> Rance, Suckling-> KK

      All the best this year

Itchy balls · 24/03/2016 at 13:33

Now that Beams is out at least half the year does it make Rich a better option?

    The Frothy One · 24/03/2016 at 13:41

    he will get a tag now and he hates it…. I think it makes him a worse option

      Holty · 24/03/2016 at 15:28

      agree frothy. just need to look back at last years results. And dont kid yourself and think the tag will go to Rocky. Rich's left boot is far to damaging to leave him free.

        Flaccid Jaff · 24/03/2016 at 16:38

        I dunno, can't let rocky loose, then hanley the next likely to tag. Rich is in my team

    tom · 24/03/2016 at 13:43

    im thinking rich as well, great price. i reckon he'll have more mid time this season, so great pick

    Southern S · 24/03/2016 at 13:52

    Not really.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 24/03/2016 at 13:55

    Might mean keays gets a gig?

      i like this call trigger.

BigHix · 24/03/2016 at 13:36

Love some last minute feedback, feel as though something's missing but not sure where. Have $93k in the bank, happy to be a little weaker down back.

DEF: Shaw, KK, JJ, Weitering, Dea, Hartley (Brown, Broad)
MID: Fyfe, Pendlebury, Ablett, Rockliff, Parker, Liberatore, Mills, B. Kennedy (Menadue, Gresham, Davis)
RUC: Jacobs, Nic Nat (Wyatt)
FWD: D. Martin, Barlow, Hall, Wells, McCarthy, Kerridge (Adams, AMT)

Fire away whether it be good or bad, happy to take any criticisms/concerns

Cheers and all the best community!!

    Tret · 24/03/2016 at 13:45

    No Danger? Good looking side though.

    IMO I think Jacobs will start poorly due to the tough fixture so would find the extra 10-30k on top of the 93k you already have to get in goldy.

      BigHix · 24/03/2016 at 13:49

      Wanted Danger but couldn't fit him unfortunately, have a feeling it will bite me.

      I agree, am hoping he can hold enough value and Goldy will drop enough so that my $90k can cover. Might explore another avenue though.

      Cheers for the feedback, greatly appreciated!

        Tret · 24/03/2016 at 13:56

        No worries mate!

Ryan · 24/03/2016 at 13:37

Rance and Cripps or bartel and shiel

    Tret · 24/03/2016 at 13:48

    Very thin midfield. I would downgrade Menzel and Lonergan and use the cash to bring in another premo mid.

    tony · 24/03/2016 at 13:49

    not the greatest i've seen. lots of improvment. better options down back

    jacob · 24/03/2016 at 17:01

    great evenly spread team, really like your POD selections. all the best

The Frothy One · 24/03/2016 at 13:44

With Ellis and Riolli being selected for Richmond should we be thinking bench options for these two now??

    Southern S · 24/03/2016 at 13:51

    If you have faith they'll play enough before bye rounds.

      Itchy balls · 24/03/2016 at 13:55

      I dont think neither of them do. Because of injuries and resting players because its the Blues

    tone · 24/03/2016 at 14:07

    personally wouldn't go anywhere near them

      Southern S · 24/03/2016 at 14:58

    cuzza · 24/03/2016 at 17:36

    what he said, both, too much value to be lost by omitting either

Tret · 24/03/2016 at 14:04

What are people thinking of Franklin this year?

    Jimi · 24/03/2016 at 14:10

    So tempted, especially considering the Swans draw for the first half of the season, but I'm not prepared to risk the inconsistency.

M. Robinson or T. Greene as R2?

    SCaddict · 24/03/2016 at 15:03
