Oh how they test our faith.

These gods that pull the strings of our game, that torment us so, they test our bloody faith.

They sent us to hell in a handbasket last Thursday night with the news every single premium in our sides would miss.

It was an excuse to toss in the towel. I saw strangers crying on the train last week, community, staring up from their phones, glistening eyes, mouthing “not Gary… please not Gary”.

All of us were staring at a sub-2000 week.

Then WHOOSHKA. Todd Goldstein. Heath Shaw. Dustin Martin. Sam Docherty. Scott Dependlebury. Matty Dea. Georgey boy Hewett. Even Mitch Brown, all those who had failed us in rounds past stood up for us.

It was a gift.

They tested our faith, and they’ve strengthened our resolve.



Relief this week, community. A whole host of big names are back which will assuage most of the pain from last week.

At the top of the list of big names are Gary Ablett and Aaron Hall, who return for a ravaged Gold Coast Suns side. However, Darcy MacPherson leaves having done a knee, which is bugger for all of us that brought him in (including myself, because I didn’t check my bloody trades on Friday night and copped a donut because of it.)

Daniel Wells returns from him, the medicos having decided Mr Burns’ “Three Stooges Syndrome” is in full effect. He’s done ankles, knees, calves, hysterical pregnancy – he is the most injured man in Australia. He also has several new injuries that have just been discovered, in him.

You’d think this would be bad news, but all of his injuries are in perfect balance. If I can explain, this is the door into Daniel Wells’ body, and there are the injuries trying to get in. Isn’t the green one cute? It’s James Kelly’s testicle injury from last year. Naww. Anyway, you see when they all try and impact him at the same time, they can’t get through the door! That’s SCIENCE.

The Panic Room is here for another week

Anywho, moving on…

Michael Barlow has made amends for whatever he did to get on Ross Lyon’s bad side and is back in the Fremantle side. With David Mundy and Clancee Wiggum Pearce out this could see significant midfield time, but he’s been named up forward because Ross Lyon is a… nasty word I’d prefer not to say because Higgo’s mum might read this. (Hi Mrs Higgo!)

Half the Western Bulldogs backline returns, including Marcus Adams, Matthew Boyd and for those bastards like myself who held him, Matthew Suckling. This truly is a relief.

Elliot Yeo is out with a quad, and Andrew Gaff is out with concussion after he was hit from behind from Tom Jonas last week. Jonas have been given six weeks for the hit, but unless you’ve got him draft that won’t be a worry.

Courtenay Dempsey is back from a hamstring injury, for those looking at a tasty, cheap POD in defence he could be a go-to with a 3 round average of 90. However, Dempsey is very injury prone and Essendon’s runners haven’t been great SC options of late – see Orazio Fantasia.

Daniel Menzel has soreness for those with him, Jack Billings will miss a few with an ankle and Hawthorn reinforced our mistrust for their rookies by dropping Kieran Brand for Lekdog’s mate Matt Spangher.

We lose on Collins in Kieran Collins from the Dogs, but gain another in Freo’s Sam Collins. Bailey Williams is also on an extended bench, so proceed with caution this afternoon as Sunday sides are named at 5-ish tonight.


We’ve got a lot of cheaper options floating about this week. Matt Priddis, Brett Deledio and Robbie Gray are all dropping down in price towards their floor (although I’d wait until next week on Robbie), and a few cheaper options like Jeremy Howe, who I had a gander at on Monday and mentioned in the podcast, are flitting around like hummingbirds.

Yet I’m seeing many people chasing cars, looking to bring in uber premiums like Shaw and Pendlebury who are shooting up in price. It’s just too much coin at this time of year. This is the time of year to be plucking fallen premiums.

As for Max Gawn, hold him. I’m firmly team Crouching and Higgo here. Gawn is carrying a niggle, as he’s said himself on the Marngrook Footy Show a few weeks back. He’ll be right after the bye.



Nothing here for rookies beyond Hopper, Williams and Port bubble-boy Doogie Howard, but as Barron von Crow pointed out this week, many of our rookies are back making cash.

Eddie Murphy’s

-66 – Jacob Hopper
-45 – Bailey Williams
-35 – Dougal Howard
-26 – Mason Cox
-25 – Courtenay Dempsey
-7 – Ben Crocker
-4 – Matt Dea
3 – Josh Smith

Dan Aykroyd’s

236 – Max Gawn
198 – Joel Selwood
163 – Paddy Dangerfield
151 – Sam Mitchell
133 – Alex Rance
130 – Callan Ward


Golly gosh my VC and C calls last week went off their bloody tits. Couldn’t believe my luck with Goldstein’s 170, and you don’t think twice about taking them. Might do so in the future, though.

I’m not saying this instantly makes me Captain Chooser Extraordinaire, but I’m feeling the tables have turned. I’m on the up. Between those captaincy choices and Jock Reynolds himself lifting my pre-season pick of Kurt Tippett into the realms of a Top 6 Forward, I’ve had a pretty good week.

Jock Tweet

The betting odds are now firmly for me having jinxed myself now, and I’m out to $5.40 to back it up but to channel my inner Lek, yolo.

Heath Shaw will not be given the space he was last week against the Dogs and will have someone marking him all day. He should still crank out a ton, but my gut says he won’t go big. The VC picks abound in tonight’s game, and I’m looking to Luke Parker or Todd Goldstein to hit 130 for us. At the moment Goldy has the nod.

I’m confident Max Gawn will return to form, but not confident enough to chuck the C on him. Ditto Gary Ablett Jnr.

I am confident in Scott Pendlebury, who is likely to get the C, but the newly acquired Matt Priddis against a depleted Suns side (he scored 196 against them last year!) but if I had him, the C would firmly go to Josh J Kennedy against the Suns. Reckon he could kick 15 and score 300 Supercoach points.

That’s me done this week, community, it’s now time to tinker with my trades all afternoon. I’m hoping I’ll be here and there in the comments, too.

Best of luck you beautiful humans!


Bailey Williams is out of Sunday’s squad, which while not unexpected is really, really irritating. This leaves Jacob Hopper and Dougal Howard as the only guys on the bubble worth discussing. Up and coming rookies include Rhys “Beast Mode” Mathieson who’s played the one and Trent West from the Lions who is a 170k RUC/FWD.

Does this change your trades? Let me know! Thanks to those in the comments who were all over this before I got here!

Awesome write up!!!!

DBJ to rookie (which rookie back??)
Hewett to Priddis


DBJ to rookie
Kerridge to Pendles……


Hewett to Mathieson
DBJ to Docherty


Hewett and Kerridge not really ready to go yet.
Do you have any other rookies.
DBJ is a good one to get rid of.
Do you have Mitch Brown (ess)?


Cheers mate! Bailey Williams the only real one to go to this week down back, which is frustrating. Wouldn't go early on Collins (Freo).


imo you have to go for Priddis this week before he shoots back up.
If you have a bloke like M.Brown in the forward line you could drop him for Dougal Howard he should get a few games with Jonas and Lobbe out.

annoying old lady

Option 3, solid


Patch even with May back you think JJK can score well? Would think May would be covering JJK?


I love you Patch


I love you too mate


Hey community, was a bit unsure of what I could do with my team this week.

With the best case scenario having happened in Adams, Barlow, Ablett, Hall and Wells all returning my team may not really need to make any urgent trades at this stage, especially since I dealt with Houli last week and got in Docherty.

Trades left: 18
Salary left: $90,000

Defense: Shaw, Simpson, Docherty, Bartel, Tippa, Adams (DBJ, Hartley)

Midfield: Danger, Ablett, Pendles, Ward, Hannebery, Wines, Libba, Petracca (J.Smith, MacPherson, Davis)

Ruck: Gawn, Martin (Wyatt)

Forward: Martin, Hall, Barlow, Wells, Kerridge, Kennedy (Brown, Menadue)

Thoughts? Cheers


McPherson to Hopper

Don't think, just do.


True Derek, seems like a no-brainer, loving the look of Hopper.


Martin to Goldy for mine if you can do a straight swap


Unfortunately not the case Tom, would need 2 trades to do that 🙁


DBJto who? Is williams worth getting or not with his job security not looking great now everyones coming back?

Hopper worth the extra coin? got mchperson, menadue, gresham or hewet to swap for him. None making me much cash as a downgrade but he should be a better scorer


Williams' JS isn't great. If you've got a DPP like Smith or Bartel he'd be worth it to swing, but otherwise he won't make more than 140k at best I feel.


May will go to JJK, but they'll have 600 inside 50s a quarter.

Kevin Skywalker

Brown & Gresham -> Priddis & rookie Howard, Mathieson, or possibly S Collins. Help, please

(I already got B Williams last week to cover a donut that didn't actually eventuate 'cause Ruggles played)


Probably Mathieson?


Do I get in Matty Boydd or Simpson?




Been back and forth with this one all week:

Option A: Kennedy and Byrne-Jones to Hopper and Bartel (have Rance and Laird around that price, can't quite afford Doc or Boyd – which is a slight deterence for this one)

Option B: McCarthy to Howard (this is only my F8 position, so not too concerned about Howard's JS, though it is a factor) and Kennedy to Priddis/Gray.

Worth pulling the trigger on either of those two this week?



Think DBJ needs to go, not sure why you would get rid of Kennedy? McCarthy needs to go but not playing and a nice loop hole option.


Only contemplating dropping Kennedy as he's my last on-field rookie (besides Petracca & at this stage DBJ).

The way I play is get to full premo asap and then have injury trades left for the end of the year – So sometimes I go early on players. (FWIW I'm more interested in overall rank – Terrible week last week but still sitting in the top 1000. Cheers


I'd say option 1.
Option 2 Howard doesn't have good JS so what happens if he doesn't play, and you have ap layer on the ground who is injured or rested? Doughnut.
You can get Gray next week who will be cheaper then what he is now. Buying priddis imo isn't that good because he won't be a POD and he only scores around high 90s to 110. Gray has a bigger ceiling Thant Priddis


Or option C, which is bring in Williams if named for Hartley, and then flicking DBJ for Boyd/Docherty


Would it work if you went a week early on Trent West? Better JS than Howard but at 170k could ruin the trade.


Too funny patch man.
Well done.
But surely the squished brown screaming one at the bottom is Kellys nut? 🙂
Though may be green by now!


Hahahaha cheers Trigger. I didn't think it would be put under this level of scrutiny – will take a closer analytical look next time I make a joke about the scrotum. I duly apologise for this lapse in judgement.

Geez that Brown one is hilarious isn't it?


VC Goldy

C Pendles


into Pendles

annoying old lady

Do you mean you're going to trade OUT dusty or callan ward?


annoying old lady

oh im retarded. kill me


No either 1 for VC

annoying old lady

DBJ -> Bailey Williams
Hartley -> Rance
DBJ -> Ol' McDonald
Ben Ken -> Robbie Gray

Concerned about Bailey Williams' JS…


Ol' McDonald is Oscar? Oscar doesn't have great JS either and the lower price is extra cash he'll make over McDonald.


True, But Bailey Williams isnt playing this week. Ol' McDonald is


If you had a choice between Ward and Priddis who wld u pick. Imagine they both were priced the same


Both priced the same? Ward without batting an eyelid.


Yes Patch

Southern S



I'm in a bit of a predicament.

Option 1:
DBJ to Williams

Ben Kennedy to Pendlebury

Positives: Pendlebury

Negatives: – Lose Kennedy who is not quite done making money yet.
– Lose Mid-Fwd swing ability
– Have to play J Smith on the field as my M8

Option 2:
DBJ to Williams

Gresham to Hopper

Positives: – Don't lose mid-fwd swing
– Get to play hopper as M8 instead of J Smith
– 360k in the kitty

Negatives: No Pendlebury

I'm thinking option 2 so I can get Pendlebury next week, he shouldn't go up to much more in price, Hopper will more than offset that cash loss.
I already have Priddis and Gray.


Pendles could rise anywhere from 10 -20 K based on what he scores?


Yeah but that's nothing really, especially when option 2 gives me Hopper who is projected to rise 68k.


I'd take Pendles this week. You can trade the swing set back in over coming weeks.


Cheers Patch


I'm doing something similar except benken to zorko, dbj to hopper.
Sure u loose the swing but hopper is a pretty handy m8 who should make money fast and if like me u r rd14 light on in the bye then gr8 option to get through the byes.
I figure my m8 would probably be petrecca so hopper should score the same or better and as patch said get the swing back in a few weeks.
So unless gawn is a late out that's the way I'm going.
Personally I think it is too much to pay for pendles but he is in rare air at the moment.


Will definitely be chucking the C on JJK this week Patch!
VC on Goldy to see if he can go for another big one tonight as my loophole


Nice work patch!
Looking at Zac williams(gws) this week don't know much about him though, anyone have anything I can use?


Love the boy – should have mentioned him, actually. He is to Throttlefinger what Zach Merrett is to me; and at 420 is a bargain. Good JS, Champion data love him, bring him in mate.


Thanks patch

I N Pieman

Love your articles Patch. Off to the movies tonight to see a new film call "Toegate" starring Rory Laird. It's a doco with an inside look into the lies & deception in the world of rangas. Directed by Ross Lyon. I'll post a review over the weekend


HAHAHA love it I N. Hear Deledio has a cameo at the start of the movie so watch out for him!




I have Martin and Gawn in the goldy worth a sideways trade from Martin at such a low price? Cash is no issue


Patch, decided to get Tippett in this week. About time to take a risk, and he's brilliant fwd/ruck swing. Let's hope it pays off.



I hope it does too mate. Looking very closely at him too.


Surely people aren't convinced that Hopper is best 18 at Giants? With Griffen to come back in a couple, I'm not sure there'll be a spot for him.

The Ranger

I've heard or read Callan Ward say on three different occasions now that GWS are focused on contested ball this season and that's why I think Hopper will keep his spot. Steele will drop out for Griffen before Hopper.
At least that's what I'm hoping…


Steele will be a gun in a few years, for a team that is not GWS


No real good downgrade option for me this week
But i have 190k in the bank
So i can upgrade dbj to pittard
Or i can use 2 trades and get boyd?


do i upgrade brown to docherty or upgrade kerridge to deldio?


Brown out first for mine.


Does anybody know much about Tom Cole who's been name in the back pocket for West Coast?
I've been checking out his stats and he avgs 20 disposals in the wafl this year.
I need a bargain base price rookie this week but I think Bailey Williams might only play the next one or two games before others come back.
Also can't trust Dougal Howard up forward and can't afford Hopper.


Tom's been close to a first game for the past few weeks. He's been good at WAFL level and he is considered a big talent. JS is an issue.


Desperate move to bring him in.


looking at past results Kev he looks to be the better pick out of he, Bailey Williams and Dougal Howard

Southern S

Not a chance I would pull that move.


What do you think about VC on Hannes Wayne? Or do you think he'll cop the tag? Some rumours going around that Sam Gibson might have the job on him..


Not sure what Wayne reckons but he's done the job so far this year and no reason to suspect he won't continue doing so


Due to Laird not being back this week and Brand getting dropped, I have Laird, Tucker and Brand all not playing in the backline which will mean I will cop a bloody donut now. Should I trade one of these guys to avoid the zero or just take it and pray either Brand or Tucker are late ins? Cheers in advance


so whats everyones thoughts on the downgrade option for DBJ?

– even if williams is named one average game and he will soon be pushed aside that is if he makes it to the side this week

– Collins ? word of there being some half decent job security with ross wanting to play rookies and lots of injury (but we have not seen him play yet and most likely wont score very well)

– anyone else thats slipped under the radar?


Tom Cole will play this week. Another def/mid. Can't comment on his js though.

The cupboard is bare for downgrades this week. I'm really not sold on Williams. JS aside his numbers are nothing to get excited about.

We'll have Matheison, Joyce, Schoenfield, SCollins, Cole coming through soon


Williams confirmed out, I've updated the Panic Room with a few, but nothing really in the back line.


Thoughts on putting the big C on Callan Ward, Patch?


Don't mind it mate. He's in stellar form.


Montagna or Goldy for the C?


Can you use the loop on Goldy Jono?


Need some advice please…_Menadue to Hopper and DBJ to Docherty a good idea or have I missed the boat on Docherty? Would only leave me 17 trades and bugger all cash._Any thoughts would be appreciated.


So my conundrum this week is doing my head in to say the least

Team as it stands

Shaw simpson laird hurn dbj adams Byrne Hartley
Danger pendles ablett ward cripps libba kerridge smith Hewett d mac dunkley
Goldy Martin loerch
Dusty Barlow hall wells montagna robbo ben Ken petracca

Dbj will become Williams, leaving me with 18 trades and 257k, considering trading d mac to cheap fwd mid swinger so I can get petracca on field?? Bit stick atm
What to do community


Don't mind that mate, but with Williams missing you might want to go up in the backline to a Docherty or co if you can


Awesome write up!!!!
Which move best suits my team needs?
$60k spare cash

DBJ to rookie (which rookie back??)
Hewett to Priddis


DBJ to rookie
Kerridge to Pendles……


Hewett to Mathieson
DBJ to Docherty

Shaw, laird, Boyd, Dea, Tippa, brown (Ruggles, DBJ )
Danger, Ablett, Selwood, Viney, Cripps, Shiel, Libba, Petracca (Hewett, Smith, Davis)
Goldy, Natanui
Buddy, Lynch, Hall, Zerrett, Motlop, Kerridge (cox, McGovern)


Looks like the third one now Williams is out, JJJ!

Locked and Loaded

Anybody somewhat intrigued by the price and potential of Chad Wingard??


when Rgray wasn't playing he was poor. he needs Gray in guts kicking him the pill. now gray back Chad starts scoring again.

Locked and Loaded

Thoughts on bringing him in as POD Derek?

Southern S

Every forward for Port scores better if Robbie Gray plays well 😉


hey community need help deciding on trades:
thinking of bringing in priddis this week but the only people i can trade are bken (be 50) or hewitt (be 20)
if i trade bken, i lose mid-fwd dpp and have to play jsmith at m8 and kerridge & petracca are stuck on my forward bench
if i trade hewitt, i have wells at m8 and i can play kerridge at f6
what do you guys think? will hewett make more money than bken from here on?


i have exact same problem, want to trade out menadue, but will lose my DPP and have Petracca, BenKen & kerridge all in forward line with one on bench.

oh well, just have to do it.


azza i traded out ben kennedy and hewett for robbie gray and a backline rookie.
those boys are only gonna make another $20 or $30G


Any news on Laird, I thought he was ready for this week? Surely next week then?


Guess so. Haven't seen anything saying he's had a setback in recovery


He trained well during the week
They must of just wanted to make sure


Hoping so, Vinny.


My team (without trades this week)

Shaw, Docherty, AMT, Leo, KK, DBJ (Adams, K.Collins)
Danger, Pendles, Parker, Zaharakis, Motlop, Libba, Wells, Smith (Oliver, Davis, Joyce)
Gawn, Z.Smith (Chol)
Martin, Hall, Kerridge, BenKen, Wingard, Petracca (Cox, Simpkin)

Trade Z.Smith and Oliver to Goldy and Mathieson/Hopper
Z.Smith and Simpkin to Mathieson


I like the first set mate


I have 1 trade and 350k. Do I:

A: Trade out Libba for Pendelbury. This would leave a choice between Hewett and Smith at M8.
B: Trade out Hewett for Dusty Martin. This would put Martin at M8 and allow me to switch him forward with Kerridge so I could turn Kerridge into a new Premo M8 next week?

Seems like Dusty is in pretty good nick, and Richmond look like they're growing some balls and actually trying to win now, rather than trying their hardest not to lose.

This would be me passing on Hopper too, as my other trade was DBJ to Williams.


Kerridge or Petracca on the field?

Gilbo Baggins

Thoughts on bringing in Dougal Howard as a downgrade for Mitch Brown. Will Dougal get good game time now Jonas is out in the ruck?

Southern S

Jonas doesn't do any ruckwork, I'm not a fan of Dougal Howard he hasn't scored too well and is in and out of the team.

Expecting Gawn to give him a ruck lesson this week.


Priddis and Hopper or Williams??

Southern S

Prid and hop, or take mathieson early if you have too.


Who to trade out of Brown and DBJ? I am leaning toward Brown as I need to play one at D6 this week and I think he could provide more consistent output through to his R14 bye … thoughts?

Southern S

I'm keeping Brown over DBJ so I maintain a FWD/DEF swing.

Go with whatever suits your team best.


Who's the better option?
Dougal Howard or Bailey Williams?

Southern S

Bailey Williams if named, then again I wouldn't put either of them in my team, likely donuts.


Howard is named and Williams isn't, but can't see him holding his spot for long regardless.


What to do with DBJ? Want to downgrade but to whom?

Southern S

All trades are risky in the backline, I'd only move on Mathieson early or Hopper both should have good JS.


Has to be a backmen. Whether I go early on Joyce and use his DPP to advantage or not.

Southern S

Wait for teams to be announced for the sunday games, could take Bailey Williams on the bubble if he's named.

Same DPP.


I must be one of the few keeping DBJ. Both Bennedy and Dea both had a couple of down weeks and bounced back. Call me silly but I'm backing DBJ to do that. Plus i don't trust Williams' job security

annoying old lady

Renton Roberts or Zac Dawson for C?


Zac is coming off a 28 last week….might be due for a big one?


Looking forward to seeing Zac with mid egilibility next year. Really ripping it up without Fyfe stealing all the points in the midfield.


If it's Coachkings I'd go Dawson Captain. He is a Coachking Beast. It's as if Higgo tweaked the scoring system just to suit him.

Big M

heya community, any thoughts on this

Got the option to either:
– bring in a premo mid, got the eye on Priddis or
– move Blicavs into the Mid and bring in Goldstein


Option 2

Southern S



Who is everyone VC/C this week?
I got a sneaky feeling Gawn may go big this week.


I think I will put the VC on him, into Danger or NicNat on Sunday. Big turnaround since I traded him out on Sunday … wiser heads prevail!

Southern S

Yep I'm going Gawn>Dangerfield.

Gawn is hopefully over his niggles and should tear up Port.


Shaw into Danger


Goldy into Danger

Mickey P

ARRGGHH – so confused, hardest decision in years – Gawn to Goldy, yes or no?

have even looked at ruck history this year against Port and Swans for the first 9 rounds and rucks average 107 against Port (Gawn) and 75 against Swans (Goldy)

Swans and Port have played 7 teams the same this year so far and the same ruckmen average 79 against Swans while 98 against Port so everything leans towards Gawn …. but ….. Goldy averaging 9ppg more this year, only one poo score compared to Gawns two and really, really bad current form for Gawn.

Gawn does not fill me with the confidence of Goldy and after this week, the price gap will be big and growing bigger so if not this week …. probably wont happen


Southern S

Hold, Gawn was the top scoring ruck up until last weekend.

Mickey P

ps: examples of different scoring include
– Hampson 55 against Swans but 83 against Port
– Kruezer 56 against Swans, but 133 against Port
– Martin 81 against Swans (at home) but 119 against Port (away)

Even Hickey scored 157 against Port!!!

Southern S

Good info, Gawn set for a 180 then!

Mickey P

mate, that would be awesome … was swinging towards Goldy, now you got me thinking even harder. SC is tough this year


trengove is in doubt. Gawn will go massive


Honestly Mickey I don't think you should do it. For you to go to the trouble of doing that analysis you must have had some doubt over whether it was the right thing to do. That analysis (great by the way) points strongly to keeping Gawn. He is not your biggest problem, fix up your lowest averaging best 22 players first. In 2 weeks time Goldys 173 will be out of his price fluctuation so re-assess then.
Thanks for the analysis I'm putting the VC on Gawn now instead of Goldy 😉

Mickey P

cheers Ketut, decided to hold, and also have VC on him …. hope we are right!!!


how many people are going Gawn to Goldstein? and do you think it is a good trade

Southern S

Have faith in your picks, he's scored 160+ three times

Even after his score of 49 the other week he was still on top, it's madness to trade him.

If he has another bad score then that's three in a row and something's wrong.


I'm actually going for it. But i understand people saying madness too. Best advice is to stick by your strategy. I did my numbers and allowing 2 x premo for premo trades this season. 1st was in round 3. The second was I always had a plan to get Goldy in. I positively quake every time my opponent has Goldy. And if I was low on trades I wouldn't contemplate it. My reasoning is:
– You can't go wrong with Goldy. He play 21-22 games every year and is going to avg 120+. You just know it
– Gawn is playing hurt and has never played 22 games in a season
– Gawn may dominate this week but think long term. Goldy will never be cheaper now and Gawn has a massive BE this week. One week score or long term strategy?
– Gawn probably will still have a great season. Goldy definitely will

But how many premos do you still have to get, how many trades do you have. Go with your gut 🙂


Thanks Harry, only need two premo mids and have 19 trades left. I feel I can afford to burn at trade and am thinking long term . I think Goldstein will out perform Gawn for the rest of the season, so I am going for it!!


Goldy looked sore last night, might have a rest instead of going to Tassie next week.




Pick one out of Zorko, docerthy, j Kennedy, buddy, Boyd or Simpson.

Southern S

Buddy, but because West Coast seem to have a good draw for the rest of the season Kennedy could be a great pick.


1. Zorko
2. Simpson
3. Boyd
4. Docherty
5. Buddy
6. Kennedy

Southern S

My picks were based on who I thought was a good value trade this round btw 🙂

Wizard of Ertz

Lot of differences in positions, byes etc. For mine, Zorko.


The Zork, THE ZORK!


Pretty much the order u have them in but Simpson ahead of Boyd. I'm ignoring price/value and just going with point scoring potential


Job security for WILLIAMS? I need a cheap defender ideally but if Bailey isn't gonna maintain a spot then should I look else where for my cash ie not dump DBJ?

Southern S

Yep pretty much, I reckon DBJ could score 80 or so and bleeding won't be too bad. Losing a little bit of cash is better than a poor trade.

If Williams is named tonight on the final interchange then his JS may be better than once thought.


I'm thinking the same way… Maybe it doesn't really matter if DBJ drops in price as I'll be holding him for a few more weeks to come thus his price will likely drop then elevate which will likely be the time where I will be selling him for a similar price.

Still undecided.



have a think about BSmith and KK. they represent great value. Only need $40k to go DBJ to either.
