THE PANIC ROOM – Round 7

Published by Patch on

PatchCoachKingsLogoIt’s the house of our democracy. Inside is a copy of the Magna Carta – the foundation document for our current political system.

Yet the place has blocked SuperCoach on the public WiFi.

Too bloody right. I spent six bloody hours in budget lockup, and when I got out I was suffering serious withdrawals.

It’s been years since I went more than six hours without SuperCoach, and I was feeling it. Flick open the app – nope. Blocked.

Disgraceful.

Malcolm, I know you’ve been following Jock for years, that you look up to him as a leader of men. You told me so yourself when you called me a few weeks ago asking what to do with Matt Suckling. But you’ve got the power to stop this madness, this suppression of freedom.

The nanny state has gone too far.

But enough of this – let’s dig into what we can control – namely, our teams.

4 COACHKINGS CONTESTS THIS WEEKEND – CLICK HERE FOR VENUES

THE NEWS

We dodged a bullet this week. Scott Pendlebury, Tom Liberatore, Todd Goldstein, Sam Kerridge and Marcus Adams were all rumoured to be injured or sore – although Adams was a case of confusion between him and his Collingwood counterpart.

Thankfully, all these men have been named to take to the field this week, and we can sigh in relief. There are still rumours they may be late outs – for Goldstein and Kerridge in particular – but I think we’re safe. I hope.

The big news of course is Rory Laird, who has broken his toe and looks to be out for two, likely three weeks. Hold him, but damn that’s annoying.

Late outs from last week Elliot Yeo and Patrick Cripps are slated to return, and Caleb Daniel has been named. Also – finally – we get a gander at Brad Crouch, who has come into the Adelaide outfit at the expense of Higgo’s man from a few weeks ago Jarryd Lyons.

We have a few debutants this week, with Kaidan Brand coming in for the Hawks, Ben Crocker a confirmed starter for the Pies and pre-season wunderkind Darcy MacPherson finally entering the Gold Coast line-up.

On top of this, Tom Ruggles is back to much rugs for those who started him.

On the flipside, Darcy Tucker, Ryan Davis and Sam Grimely have all left their respective sides, and Jacob Weitering will miss with a shoulder injury. He’s gotta go, as his breakeven indicates he’ll lose price when he’s back next week or the week after.

Taylor Adams is still injured, Trent Cotchin has fractured a cheekbone and will miss two weeks and Kane Lambert has badly knocked his ribs up and will miss an extended period.

And of course, Collingwood’s best player and future Brownlow medallist Jesse White is back, giving much needed comedic relief to everyone who doesn’t go for Collingwood. You watch him lose the Pies the game. You just watch.

Oh it’ll be glorious.

THE TALKING POINT

She’ll be a short one this week community as I’m running on no sleep. But I’m having a gander at the backline because that’s where my upgrades are this week. I’m bringing in Heath Shaw and Matthew Boyd along the backline, simply because all our alternate plans for the year have fallen through.

The mid-brand of 400k players I put so much faith in has failed. Johanissen was crippled by injury, as was Murphy. Suckling is down, Hurn has given me a Burn, McGovern and Yeo haven’t inspired success, Rich has been inconsistent but the closest we’ve got to a good 400k selection.

The stalwarts of defence from years gone by are getting the job done, and I think we need to prioritise getting these gangly old bastards into our sides in the backline.

Also worth noting Dustin Martin and Michael Barlow are both 500k in the forward line, and I think we’ll need both the pricks by the end of the year and this is the cheapest we’ll get them both for some time.

Yes, that does mean we need to suck up our pride for those of us that traded Barlow out. However, I refuse to feel guilt for that trade. If Fyfe hadn’t gone down, Barlow would still be scoring putrid 50s and 60s in the forward line. I feel no shame for that.

Or at least I keep telling myself that.

Both Trading Places and that captain segment are being given a spell this week as parts of my brain swing between states of general soreness and complete and utter agony.

The captaincy corner is possibly out for good, considering my complete and utter inability to pick a captain who can ton up, which for the record are Goldstein (49), Fyfe (53), Gawn (105), Fyfe (115), Dangerfield (77) and my exception that proves the rule in round one Dangerfield (155).

I’m picking Luke Parker as captain this week – so you’ve all been warned.

And on that bombshell, farewell community. Stick up for each other in the comments – I’ll be back refreshed and revitalised next week – and get on down to a CoachKings venue. We’ve got the damn things coming out of the wazoo now!

GOOD LUCK, COMMUNITY.

Love your work Patch, keep it up mate!

Cameron

How many upgrades does everyone have left to make?

Mike

After next week 5 …hopefully

Moz

7 after this week

Luviboy1

5 if you count Libba and Wells as premos.

Leeds17

5 after this round in a perfect world, probably more like 7-8.

HOLLA

8

Derek

Goldy won't be rested…surely. where are these rumors coming from?

Jock

SEN was rolling with it yesterday mate – they've also bout Daw into the extended lineup. Reckon he's a 23% chance of late out

Gord29

I hope so would suit my future trades better him missing one week (non Goldstein owner)

Steeeve

If he is I'm putting up my first donut of the year with Grimley also missing. Could really have used the 15 points he would have provided as Emergency.

Jimi

Que the 14 point loss

Derek

Thanks mate, we don't get any rumours in old Sydney town

Better Luck Nxt Yr

You can always listen to SEN by jumping on their website and listening live.

Jimmy

My last trade on Saturday arvo of Round 1 (during the Essendon game when I realised their BACK rookies weren't so good) was Barlow out for Laird to beef up my backline. Right up until last week I thought it was a genius (with a bit of luck) move, but right now id prefer Barlow……How quickly this game can change.

Jimmy

Last 'free' trade I should add

hedski

Great work patch. If Goldy is a late out I'll be munching on a jam filled bastard not touching Cox!!

Liam

Great work patch. Love your work.

Cliffy

Currently 23 trades left.

Was looking at 'painting the fence' this week with going 1 upgrade, 1 downgrade in terms of trades:

Dea – J.Smith (via DPP)
Weitering – Simpson

These moves will mean I'll lose my MID/FWD swing since I'll have to move Menadue from my Mids into my Fwds, but it may be ok for one week since Petracca will be on the bubble next week, and hence I could quickly re-establish that MID/FWD swing bringing him in.

Go for it, or re-assess my moves community?

Cheers 🙂

Liam

Looks good to me.

Ratitat

i am doing almost the exact same trading this week, so i say it sounds good

Southern S

Popular trades, but popular for a reason. Hard to go wrong there unless Smith is dumped next week, but who else you going to downgrade to anyway? Lock it in.

Liam

Petracca or Hartley on field ?

Jayden

bring in joel selwood or luke parker this week?
if things go my way, can probably bring in the other next week

JamiesNinjas13

The ball spills loose, Parrrrker *orgasm*

Luviboy1

Parker against Essendon. Will probably tear them a new one.

ThatDamnRascal

Totally agree with you on Barlow Patch. If Fyfe was still running through there he'd still be flopping around in the fwd line bleeding cash everywhere. Mundy playing a sweeping half back role now too it would seem.

Onto my dilemma for the week. Do I get Buddy in this week and watch him impale the bombers or add M.Boyd to my backline?

Cheers

Southern S

Buddy, Simmo or Docherty.

yer man

premo in defence this week who do i look at
i already have heater

Charlesy

Go with Simpson mate. Always gives you 85-120 and plays 22 games each year. Very reliable

Southern S

Agreed lock simmo

Luviboy1

Consider Boyd as well, also a good option.

Mister_Spock

Great work as always Patch.

Thoughts on potential options for me this week?

Got Laird, Rance and Weitering down back so feeling like Weits has to go…but also have Dea and Menapause that need to be chopped as well.

My thinking there's three options:

1. Weits and Dea out for Cox and Smith (cash generation)
2. Dea and Menapause out for Cox and Smith (minimise cash loss but Weits on field)
3. Weits and Dea out for Smith and Toby Greene (miss out on the big Cox, but get Greene's scoring potential – he's looking top 6-10 FWD at this stage of the year…)

Thoughts?

Southern S

3

Steve

1 or 3 mate.

Don't take a donut on Weitering.

Menadue won't leak (much) cash with a break even of 41. He could even score a sneaky 80 and start moving up towards $300,000 Mitch Brown style.

Geoff

Tom Campbell worth jumping onto as a 6th FWD or potentially ruck emergency by season end?

Phil

Seriously?

Southern S

Gold.

Luviboy1

Matthew Boyd or Kade Simpson. Doing my head in. On one hand the capability of producing large 120 plus scores on the other consistency and reliability. Help community!

Wattsieesq

Simpson. When JJ and Suckling return later in the year, Boyd's output will drop. Premos are for a season, not just for Christmas : )

Southern S

Agreed, plus Simpson has the durability of the terminator.

Luviboy1

Yeah leaning towards Simpson. Although heavily considering scrapping my plan of Weit and Davis to Simmo and Smith, with rumors circulating that Goldy will be out. May double down and go Smith and Cox instead. Its a harsh game :/

@Matr1x23

Hey guys,

I'm a little stuffed too and there's only one place to turn to and that's my beloved community. So I've got 23 trades left and $361,600 in the war-chest. What to do next guys?!? It's doing my head in.

Defence: Shaw, LAIRD, Adams, WEITERING, Dea, Byrne-Jones (Hartley, Byrne)

Midfield: Dangerfield, Hannebery, Parker, Cripps, Rockliff, Mills, GRAY (Kennedy, Menadue, Davis)

Rucks: Gawn, Nic Nat

Forwards: Hall, Barlow, Wells, Kerridge, McDonald-Tip, Papley (Brown, Cox)

I think I've got all the right rookies but these injuries are just killing me now. Gray, Weitering, Laird. I don't know what area to focus on. Any help would be appreciated community!

Wattsieesq

Get rid of Weitering. His BE is above his average. Hold the other two. You seem to have reasonable bench cover.

Luviboy1

In a similar position mate. Your backline is left very vulnerable this week. I would be inclined to go Weitering straight over to a Simpson/Boyd/Docherty type premo to bolster your defense. You could then drop one of Mcdonald-Tip/Menadue/Davis to J.Smith who is looking to be a very nice cash generating rookie with reasonable JS. Or you could hold off and just go the 1 trade if Smiths JS is too much of a worry for you.

Anth

Do I trade Weitering or Tippa to Shaw? I currently have gone Weitering, but he isn't losing cash anytime soon.

Also, Clayton Oliver or Josh Smith on field?

Southern S

Weits is also not playing, trade him. if you keep him then get hit with more injuries this round you're stuffed

Mick

Oliver… 10 clearance minimum

min0008

Weitering and dea to Smith and Cox or
Weitering and dea to Smith and Simpson.

hedski

2

Jonathan Camac

Dusty or Barlow? Thoughts community?

Southern S

If you want Barlow then now is the time to get him at 33 BE.

Jonathan Camac

Cheers mate, yeah I'm leaning towards him at the moment. Especially with the big names out in Freo.

hedski

Anyone who still has Stain Gray in their underpants (team) he won't be playing sunday according to Hinkley him and big Dougal out.

Derek

I saw Howard won't be playing

Who will ruck

Southern S

Guess they think that Dixon and Westoff can go with martin?

Could have problems against Brisbane I reckon with Rocky, Beams and Zorko around…………………

hedski

Trengove back with a chopout from dixon/westhoff

Marvin

So this may be controversial but I I'm looking to offload Shiel or Cripps this week to bring in Parker. I don't have a warchest saved up and punting dea and tippa leaves me a bit short for a rookie and a gun. Yes shiela and cripps ave around 100 but both haven't gone to the next level like I thought they would when I picked them at the start of the year. I can't see it in happening anytime soon either meaning they are premos but no where near being in the final top 10 mids or warrantted being in my final team. So they have to go eventually.

So dea and Shiela/Cripps out josh smith and Parker in. Probably only lose 30 points playing smith over sheil yet gain 400 with Parker as captain this week on dea-Parker. Then have cash spare for Heath Shaw next week and can focus on bringing in ultra premos selwood, danger, hanners, ward etc al.

Ill admit I got it wrong with Shiel and Cripps.

Thoughts? Comments?

Southern S

It's a tough call I'd probably get rid of Cripps although he has huge potential, doesn't seem to be living up to it this year and already missed a game so might not be 100%.

Shiel got 34 touches and scored well last week so hold him for sure.

Southern S

That saying I'm not sure trading either of these guys is a good idea, but it is for the top player in the league so far…………sometimes gotta break the SC rules I guess.

Marvin

Thanks for the comments champ. Rules getting broken

Benjamima Puddleduck

I wouldn't trade either of them. surely you have better trades to make than chasing a handful of points.
What happens when Cripps and Shiel bang out a 130 ave over the next 5 games while Parker backs off to a 100 for the next 5 games, or gets injured.

I think both those guys have the capacity to push much further and i think they will.

Hold on that trade.

Bowski

I hope you didn't!! Ridiculous trading!!

Marvin

I sure did. Got rid of cripps but wish I got rid of shiel. Yeah I lost 40 points this weekend but il easily make those back up over the course of the season. Bottom line is cripps and shiel won't be in the top ten mids so need to go sooner rather than later. I stand by my decision

Mike

What are people's thoughts on a double down grade this week getting both Smith and Cox in.

northernsoul74

Depends on how many trades you have.

Youngster

Depends on whether you want to double upgrade next week or get in Petracca or others. Trouble with double down grade this week is that you really want to be upgrading the next week. I've chosen to pant the fence and miss out on Smith (need Cox for loophole and ruck coverage) and next week paint the fence again to get Petracca in. Only time will tell if it's the right decision.

Hazey

Ablett in doubt? Saw a HS headline on my FB feed….

Wattsieesq

Had a fitness test this morning away from the main group but then rejoined the group. I think he'll be ok.

Tommy

He is right and expect him to get 130+ after criticism he has copped this week

tom

Tippa and Dea for Smith and Boyd? Leaves me 23 trades?

Billo

Go for it mate.

C-Train

Really stuck guys with these 2 trade options:

Out Weitering & In Barlow or Martin (FWDs) or K. Simpson (BACK)
OR
Out M. Crouch & In Selwood (Mids)

Really interested in anyone’s opinion on what to do with M. Crouch…

wighty36

martin I think best value especially with cotchin out

GoHawks

Weitering to Martin for mine

Nervous Coach

Marvelous work Patch. Absolute gold. Look forward to seeing 'future Brownlow medalist' Jesse White do stuff all again for the Pies tomorrow. Would love your (and the Community's thoughts) on which of the following trades I should do this week.

1) Dea to Ruggles and Weitering to Simpson, Boyd or Pittard (as a POD)
2) Weitering or Dea to Ruggles and Zac Smith to S Jacobs
3) Weitering to Z Williams (GWS)

Wattsieesq

I wouldn't bother bringing Ruggles in. You've missed the boat. I don't think he'll make that much more.

Nervous Coach

Thanks Wattsieesq. I am concerned about Ruggles JS. I could trade Dea to Smith (Coll) via DPP and Weitering to Simpson/Boyd or Pittard. Thoughts?

Wattsieesq

I really like those moves

Southern S

I want what you're on.

Cashcows

Dea + AMT – > Ward and J.Smith
24 trades left after ^
Holding Laird, Weitering (for now) and Gray.
Ranked 52XX

Good moves?

Also for those in cash leagues, do you focus on rank at all?

northernsoul74

Similar to me. Dea and Davis to J Smith and Callan Ward via some DPP action. Upgrading midfield first then will worry about defence and forward in a few weeks. I know the players I want so will wait for them to be at a decent price

GoHawks

Like the moves.

I play a cash league, and still focus on total rank. I figure if I can maximize my score my ranking will be better, and I will have more league wins. I only look at league match-ups during the bye rounds, and in the finals.

Don't Bush Babbie'

Considering putting the VC on Dusty tonight , thoughts anyone ?

wighty36

I will be I only have him or gibson available for loop hole

Harley

No way! Can't see him having a big enough game. Even more attention with no cotchin. Possible 120 would be max he would get and I doubt many would settle for 120 for double points on a VC.

Plus Friday nights this year have been major let downs for VC's.

Surely the smart move is danger VC and then Parker or hannabery capt! Possibly even Franklin as a POD

GoHawks

Fair call. Tigers have a good record against the Hawks, if that did continue Martin would need to be a big part of it.

Harry

Damn I thought I was the only one

Phil

Out of the 2 who would be a better play in the back line on the field….AMT or M. Brown?

GoHawks

amt

wighty36

finally made a decision this week dropped from 46th overall to 78th and have some injuries, I really wanted to bring rocky in this week at a bargain price but injuries to laird,weitering stopped that! I'm taking dusty via dpp with adams who I had fwd and trade weits out, to me dusty at 500k has a lot more scoring potential than some of the premo back who will avg between 90-100k for the same price, hoping rocky doesn't go up to much this week and touch wood no injuries he will be my next target!

Bowski

I hope you didn't! Bloody Rocky, he just cant stay on the park

Wighty36

Gday mate,

Nah thankfully i didn't i tossed it up all week between rocky and martin, the saving grace was the chance to put the vc on martin friday night as this would of been my only loophole option this week due times of games and rookies! Jumped up to 38th so definately made the right call

Coxy

Community! Need your help need to upgrade from weitering! Although Simpson is the logical choice for most of you punters, he doesn't suit my bye structure at all, Daniel rich does! Should I bring Simpson in despite it possibly ruining my bye round, or should I get rich so I have N even spread, rich may be a decent POD aswell!

The Weapon

I've got Rich and its certainly been a bumpy ride so far, I wouldnt worry too much about bye structure so much and just go simpson

Tommy

Any chance that Parker could be tagged by Crowley?

GoHawks

Yes, some chance. Real question is if Crowley can stop Parker, I think the answer is NO.

Benjamima Puddleduck

Crowley is a has been.
I actually thought he might be alright this year.

Dave

What are thoughts on bringing in Tippett in regards to having ruck cover?

GoHawks

Expensive ruck cover, rather bring in Cox.

Dave

But what if cox doesn't play?

Tommo09

Buddy as VC for anyone else???

GoHawks

like it, dont have him, but if I did vc against Ess makes sense

Shake n bake

He's my capt if danger spuds it.

Brook

I am tossing up between Boyd, Pittard and Docherty for my defensive upgrade. Pittard's numbers stack up pretty well from the first six rounds (25.5 disposals, 2:1 kick to handball ratio and 4 inside 50s per game). He has played some decent opposition too (Adelaide, GWS, Geelong). Just not sure on Docherty (already have Simpson) and surely Boyd will be rested at some stage and role may change when JJ and Suckling come back. Thoughts?

GoHawks

I think Boyd. JJ will be another 7-8 weeks away from returning, and Sucklings return wont impact Boyd's role that much.

Flaccid Jaff

Would love to have 4 trades this week. Need to get shaw and dusty in asap, but should I prioritize smith and cox this week and keays and petracca next week? Have lots of plump cows to cull. Are 4 rookie options like these rare enough that we should take all 4 and not risk getting stuck down the track with no good downgrade options?

TRIGGER HAPPY

Thanks Patch. I'm panicking!

What the hell do I do this week?
I am getting shaw in come hell or high water.
Missing:
Def: Laird, Weita
Mids: Gray, davis, parish and Dunkley

So eat a donut in the mids unless I trade again
Options.
A 1. Gray to Shaw via DPP
2. Dea to Smith via DPP
Q. how long is gray out for? Do I trade?

B. 1. Parish to Smith. (made $200k off parish probably still more cash to make? Do I cull early?)
2. Dea to Shaw
Keep Gray in mids.

C.1. Dea to Shaw
2. Weita to Smith
Problem eat a donut in mids for the week.

or
Do nothing – mmn donuts – don’t get shaw or smith, keep gray loose money on Dea, Weita and laird injured.

Tell you what I am looking to forward to having my whole team on the park one day.
With my luck at the moment could fall into a barrel of nipples and come out sucking my thumb!

Thoughts?

Leaning towards B unless someone has any update on Gray?

Thanks lads

Davo

I have the same 4 mids out and I am doing your option B. Will take the punt that not much money left in Parish and I can deal with Weitering next week as he won't lose money this week. Can't handle the doughnuts & falling too far behind.

Barlow_The_Belt

Hey Community one big question for my team who do I down grade to Josh Smith
1. Menadue
2. Davis
3.Ben Kennedy?

Southern S

Davis as he's not playing, and may not come back anytime soon if Darcy MacPherson performs.

Barlow_The_Belt

Good point but if he's not playing he won't be losing any cash though so wouldn't it be smarter to get rid of either menadue or Kennedy?

Southern S

They won't lose cash with their low BE's, plus they have the opportunity to increase their output and profit more, unlike someone not named.

It makes zero sense to trade out the other two over Davis, he may never come back for all we know.

Thomas

Davis

Bomber56

Seeing as there are 6 games on Saturday starting at 1-45, 2-10, 4-35, 5-10, 7-40 and 8-10 will the lockout drop off once these games start?

Or because the games overlap each other will the lock stay in place?

Thinking of using the loophole on either the Geelong or Sydney game but need to take the captaincy off Laird if they fail.

Crowmagnon

each game locks out when it starts.

Bomber56

thanks for the answers guys 🙂

tom

I need help in which trade(s) to make. 25 trades remaining and 13k

Shaw, Laird, Simpson,Rich, Adams, Dea, Brown, DBJ
Danger, Ablett, Pendles, Parker, Gray, Libba, Mills, Kerridge, Davis, Menadue, Hewett
Goldstein, Martin, Wyatt
Hall, Barlow, De Goey, Wells, Kennedy, Tippa, McCarthy, Petracca

Thinking of either going Dea to Smith and banking the coin or Dea and Tippa to Smith and Boyd.

David

Sam Gray omitted

Southern S

Well it should have no impact as Sam Gray should've been dumped by coaches weeks ago!

I N Pieman

Right if Goldy gets pulled before the match I'm going to have to point the finger at Big Carl. He's stirred up the gods for that trade last week

Northernsoul74

Afl site reporting Daws elevation just a reward for his good form. No mention of Goldy being a doubt.

Hazey

Daw was elevated at the start of the season I think. Hoping Goldy is good to go, and Majak is just back up.

Pinidu

Should I play BenKen, Papsmear or McCarthy on field?

Also here are my trades:
Dea –> Simpson
Davis –> J. Smith
25 trades left. 355K in the bank.

Thoughts?

Southern S

Looks fine. I'd play Ben Ken but hey both other guys could score more.

I could also tell you what topping to have on your next pizza.

You Silly

Papley

Nicholas

Have 22 trades left and could go weitering to heater and davis to smith. This would leave me with 20 trades and 5-8 players left till full premo depending on wells, wines, libba and b smith performances. Starting to get worried on my low trades and may need to do 1 down 1 up next week to get Martin.

Southern S

Do it, Weitering is gone and Davis has been dumped, plus he was useless.

james

after a week of termoil i have finally narrowed down my 1000 trade options down to 3

Weitering + Dea = Shaw + Simpson – this trade makes my DEF stronger with laird benched

Dea + Davis = Simpson/Boyd + Rockliff/Mmurphy – all mids who will avg 100+ for rest of season and parish on bench = handy downgrade option in a couple weeks to gain an easy 250k

Dea + Tipungwuti = Shaw + Dusty or Barlow (traded early in the season) or Buddy – can strengthen Both DEF & FWD by getting The best DEF and a FWD Premo

out of the three option i like number 2 as it means i wont have to play hewett as bench cover for Parish this week and wont have to worry about fielding any rookies and long term the downgrade of parish will be big to get some premos in later

Would love some thoughts Community

HERES MY TEAM 460K IN THE WAR CHEST

DEF- LAIRD, Houli, Adams, WEITERING, Dea, DBJ (Byrne, Ruggles)
MID- Dangerfield, Hannebery, Ward, Zieball, Shiel, Priddis, PARISH (Hewett, Davis, Greasham)
Ruck- Gawn, Nic Nat (Lorensch)
FWD- Hall, Wells, Kerridge, De Goey, Benken, Tipungwuiti (Menadue, Petracca)

Cashcows

I like 3rd option. Getting good solid proven ins.
Dont like 1 because Weitering can be held no cash lose.
Dont like 2 because i wanna give rocky 1 more week before thinking about him and murphy not a fan. Simpson/boyd okay but shaw better.

Southern S

1 for me.

Boltons Blues

im to stubborn to trade Barlow back in after trading him out, so 1 or 2 for me haha

Derek

number 3 stands out to me. get Dusty and Shaw in for dea and Tippa – anyway it could be Weitering instead of tippa?

Dusty and Shaw are both $60k cheaper with low BE

Dasha

Dusty or Boyd in this week?

johnno2908

Depends if you have enough cover down back. But Dusty should definitely be top 6 forward this year. As cheap as you will get him. I have gone Dusty anyway

@t_woof

It's time to get Dustin in.

Mac

Chances of Kerridge being a late out?

Dillon Panthers

Has me worried too Mac. Does everyone think Libba will play? I can see him being a late out too …

mark

Community do we think Stefan Martin would be a good pod captain this week. Playing against no genuine Rickman and overdue for a good score

David

I reckon Port will be jumping 3rd man up all day….and the ruck man who rucked against Ports non-existent rucks last week has just been dropped…..big risk

Southern S

Plenty of better options but go with your gut, it's what supercoach is about.

Nick

J smith or m cox or both??

Mac

Smith

@t_woof

Been toying with this same question Nick.

Like Mac and INP, just Smith.

I'm leaning Smith and Dustin Martin.

Bobby Singh

Hello community, need your help with some dilemma's.

Should I go Laird to Simpson? I've got 200k and 23 trades.
OR
Should I keep Laird and hope that Brown/Ruggles provide decent cover?

Cheers.

dannyyboyy

take a deep breath, relax, and hold bobby boy.

Bobby Singh

Cheers boys 😀

Sully321

Who is more of a priority smith or cox?

Mac

Smith. Read above comments

Phil

Probably smith?
