Loving the podcast! Also loving the end of the byes.

I have Libba and Kerridge remaining in my midfield and I'm planning on upgrading them to Selwood and Hanners. Does anyone see any issue with bringing those two in? My midfield at the moment is: Danger, Pendles, Sloane, Gaz, S Mitchell, R Gray, Kerridge, Libba. I am a little worried about Hanners run home and I am also worried about the cover I have on the bench. Should I aim to keep one of Libba or Kerridge as bench cover or go all out and get the guns?
Cheers Guys

Richard

Go Selwood,Hanners.Wouldn't worry about Hanners run home That would give a dam good midfield go for it

Leeds17

Hannerbury tends to play well in all sorts of games, not a flat track bully.

@wheels_1987

Han is a gun
Selwood gun

easy choice

Saalih

Best defender besides shaw docherty Simpson laird and rance? And who is better to trade Ruggles Collins or Bailey Williams?

Steven

depends on how much cash you have if you can ride of williams do it to mcveigh. Boyd, JJ

Saalih

Can afford anyone

Kumarchode

Williams all the way, ruggles and collins provide good bench cover

The Ranger

If you go with McVeigh and keep Williams it open up the Def/Mid swing.
Collins is decent back up.

Saalih

I want the player who will score the most points from here on out. I am thinking maybe bartel pittard or Boyd.

Hawks

Bartel or JJ

Scotty

Plan to Downgrade Rose, Trengove and Collins over the next month and upgrade Cripps > Coniglio, Petracca > Zorko leaving me with Mitch Robinson as Fwd/Mid bench cover and around 250k in the bank for my remaining two trades.
Anyone see any problems with that??

50_Shades

So, you've got seven trades as of now.
Realistically that's two or three upgrades max and then you've got injury cover so you'll be at the SC gods mercy of who you can trade… Good luck.

Steeeve

Current mid premos: Danger, Gaz, Pendles, Hanners, Neale, Selwood, Rockliff. Who would you rank as the next best?

Mac

Sloane

Kev

Good mids! Sloane probably next.

Lachy

Gray

Steeeve

Thanks all. Value doesn't matter but those I had been considering did not actually include Sloane, so that's an interesting one.
I'd looked at:
Luke Parker (can go bang bit inconsistent and not a pod)
Called Ward (easy run home and undervalued)
Dylan Shiel (see above)
Matt Priddis (underperforming without NicNat but proven super premo)
Robbie Gray (best of this whole bunch imo but tough run home)

Derek

Mr consistent, JPK.

Southern S

Great value at 550k, and under 5% ownership even this late in the season is unbelievable.

Moustachio

Would not describe 107.8 av for 554k as great value, just okay. Unless you think he will average significantly more on the run home.

Southern S

Was more thinking of great value for JPK as a player in general who is usually around the 600k mark. He could do anything from here and average 120 for the rest of the season, he's capable.

Shake n bake

Ward here on

pod

yes next best Ward

Tommo09

Is it worth trading Petracca to a premo fwd next week even if it will be F7?

Tommo09

If so, Merrett, Deledio, Montagna, Kennedy or Gunston?

Lachy

I'd probs either get Merrett, Lids or Gunston tbh

Tommo09

I'm thinking Montanga only because of price

The Ranger

Any of those options are good but it depends how many trades you have left and whether you need to keep the DPP

LJB

Thinking I'll trade in selwood and maybe franklin to reach full premo. Im unsure on franklin. Thoughts community

Kev

Grabbed him last week when he was 1k less than Kerridge, was rewarded with a 114.

Swans gunning for top 4 and no Tippett. Go for it!

Hawks

Franklin has been very consistent this year, even scored ok in the wet

50_Shades

Sure, who doesn't love the roller coaster ride of a key fwd… He is playing good footy though.

I don't think I would do it, but understand the attraction

Kev

Rounds 1-10 he had 8 100+ scores and his lowest was 83, so not as up and down as previous years. Some bad games against gc and gws though.

Averaging 18 touches, 6 marks, and 4 goals. At his price I see it as a safe gamble

Rockbanker

I have 9 trades and $84K. I have Dangers, Pendles, Sloane, Abba, Ward, Hanners, as well as Wines and Liba, both of whom I have had from day one. I am thinking of trading the latter two for Parker (Cheap) and Zorko so I can switch to my six quality mid/fwds if need be. Your constructive cricism is most welcome community.

Maestro

Depends which Abba; Benny or Bjorn?

50_Shades

I like your thinking and the mid/fwd swing may be important.

Pinidu

I've got 10 trades this week and 240K in the bank. My only rookies are Mills, as well as Libba and Wells on field and an injured Michael Barlow.

I'm already planning on a Mills > Neale trade.

My second trade this week has me at crossroads; do I play Petracca (FWD bench) until Barlow comes back OR trade Barlow > Zorko OR trade Perracca to S Motlop who will cover for Barlow then become a bench swing man….

Thoughts community?

lolattack

Barlow to Zorko if going for rank, Petracca to Motlop and holding Barlow if going for league wins.

Jimmy

Sounds like you have a great team. Id say given that you have the luxury of trades I would get rid of Barlow for Zorko.

Dont trade in Motlop he will do your head in.

What about trading in Callan Ward instead of Neale; it will give you more money and you can therefore possible upgrade petracca to someone decent and allow barlow to remain on your bench until he gets back.

Pinidu

Thanks for the suggestion Jimmy. I had a think about it. The problem is I already have two GWS players in Shaw and Greene. And, I believe that Zorko is a must have. But cheers anyway.

The Ranger

Looking good Pinidu! With 10 trades I reckon you just go BANG BANG Neale and Zorko.

Jimmy

Use one trade to bring in Ward or two trades to bring in Pendles?

I have 7 trades left.

Getting rid of Zahakakis

Pinidu

Yeh definitely save the trade and get Ward mate. They'll both average about the same from here on out anyway and the pies have a really tough draw.

Southern S

Massive call saying Ward will average the same as Pendles who has averaged around 120 for the last 6 years……………….

@wheels_1987

Ward

good POD and good run home

min0008

Is it worth trading Kerridge this week if my forward line looks like this:
F: Deledio, Martin, Montagna, Hall, Wells, Kerridge (Petracca, Menadue)

I only have 7 trades and 59k in the bank. I could bring in Franklin at 440k or wait for Zorko or Merrett next week after downgrading Menadue?

All other lines are fully premium with Collins at D7 and Libba M8 with Trengove, Phillips and Jansen on the bench.

Dan

Wait a week and flick Menadue for Zorko

50_Shades

Yep, wait a week. I agree Zorko, but keep an eye out for Zerrett, he's been v.good this year and if you think he can keep going, he's a viable alternative.

@wheels_1987

Zorko the Magnificent

Adam

Who's the better option out of S Docherty and Z Williams.

Current backline premiums are Shaw, Boyd, Simpson, Laird, Bartel.

Pinidu

Docherty

Leeds17

Docherty clearing on exposed form, that being said GWS have a soft draw from here and Carlton pretty tough.

Pinidu

The draw is an interesting topic when discussing defenders. Sometimes the harder the draw, the more possessions defenders will get due to the ball being down there more often.

Southern S

Also the draw can have zero impact on a defender's scoring, especially Simpson and Docherty who have scored well all year in wins and losses.

50_Shades

Draw schmaw, trying to predict players scores based on your view of the quality of the opposition is frought with danger.

What about the weather, how many hours sleep they had, did they bring their lucky undies…

Moustachio

Certain teams bleed SC points to the opposition in certain positions tho. Foolish to ignore if one player is playing a bunch of such teams, while another is playing teams that are the opposite.

Southern S

People give the draw too much credit for scoring though, anything can happen.

Rick

Hannerz or Neale??
Already have parker

Dan

Both. Coin toss both will be in top 4 to 6 premos by end of the year. Hanners with lower price would be my option

Saints man

Neale if already got Parker

@wheels_1987

Neale as a POD

Steve

Got 520k to spend on a mid premo, who is the best option? or do i use another trade and upgrade to a more expensive premium like hanners or neale?

Dan

Parker, Ward or Gray

Southern S

Great options in that price range.

Steeeve

Parker, Ward, Robbie Gray all fantastic value.

matt

What about scott Lycett!!!! fwd/ruck, so will cover rucks, only 419,000 and no naitanui for the next 7 weeks……. think about it

Moustachio

Would wait a week, hard to judge from only 1 performance vs essendon. 125 be so will get a bit cheaper.

Danners

As an R3/F7, he is a good option

Andrew

How much long do we expect Dahlhaus to be out for, AFL website says 1-2 weeks but I thought he would be out for longer

Kev

He's been gone for 3. Initially reported as a 4 week injury. I'd expect him back next week

FootyFanatic

Not sure how accurate they are but it was just reported on channel 7 news that he will be 3 weeks away.

Dasha

saw a comment here the other day saying that he'll be out for longer than expected, the bloke has a mate working with the club

Moustachio

Yep the guy reckoned 4-5 weeks. May or may not be reliable but definitely a worry if you're holding.

Parchy

Afl.com said he's returned to running so that's a good sign

The Run Home

Who out of Gibson, Rance, McVeigh or JJ for last def spot
Already have Shaw, Simpson, Doc, Pittard and Laird

Southern S

If you need one right now Rance.

If you can wait for a couple of rounds to see how things pan out maybe McVeigh or JJ.

Hawks

Rance for mine

50_Shades

Rance (geez I feel for him, busts his nuts every week and for what!) but agree with Southern if you can watch a week or two, the others might make the decision harder.

Leeds17

Pendles or Neale? (Assuming I can get 10pts per game elsewhere with money saved)

50_Shades

Pendles for mine, but not sure I can justify it. Neales been great this year… But still Pendles.

Danners

Pendlebury anyday, much more reliable

@wheels_1987

if you need a pod NEALE

Tommo09

Hopper or Petracca out for a non-playing rookie to loophole with?

Hopper out means that Petracca is on field this week but I am limited in who I get in next week
Petracca out means that I have to play Phillips on field this week but I can get any forward next week

Thoughts community??

ToneStar

Get a cheap Ess mid/forward player. They have a lot of Sunday games coming up and perfect loop hole player for VC and swing player… I'm looking at getting one in next few weeks…

Tommo09

Hopper or Petracca out?

Liam

Hopper easily, petracca is still playing.

Tommo09

Even though that limits who I can get next week?
Also, Petracca may lose cash while Hopper will not

Tommo09

I was thinking Petracca

Liam

But could be limiting point scoring with having to play Phillips. Depends how much it effects your choices next week.

@wheels_1987

Hopper

the injuries will come. we all need cover

i think its the worst idea to trade out petracca, he will be needed

pitch72

Good podcast boys, reckon Wayno needs some new material though…

50_Shades

may be he's had a bit too much of his own sp**f drink (even with a nickname like 50 shades, I still did feel a little uncomfortable typing that…)

@wheels_1987

nah mate, he loves the SPOOF

Craig

Who to bring in out of robbie gray and ward?

Dasha

ward i reckon, easier draw

Hawks

Ward

50_Shades

Yeah, probably Ward, but I bought Gray at almost $600k, so I'm probably a little scarred. He'll be right though.

Southern S

Gray, I reckon he'll come good.

I like the Melbourne and crows games at Adelaide rounds 21 and 22, then GCS at metricon in round 23. Has some tough games before that of course.

GWS has a good draw but if looking at finals scoring I'd pick Gray.

@wheels_1987

Flick a coin

Timchief

Need some advice. I have to upgrade my last two forward spots with enough cash to get any two. Currently have Martin, lids, Montagna and hall.
Thoughts? Best pod?

Hawks

Zorko & Franklin

Redgumwon

I've had Mitch Robinson all year. Started slow and was scoring really well until the KO against the tigers early in the game. Should be back this week after the week off for the bye. He's a great POD priced at only $447,200 and DDP mid/fwd

50_Shades

Zorko and Zerrett (though without Zaha this week, Zerrett might cop more attention than he can handle).

SCaddict

I appreciate the shoutout lads. Only two more sleeps until the next play at home CoachKings fixture … can't wait!

Btw Crouching was right first up that the Supercoach GF is back to Rd23 this season after being Rd22 last year.

As Jock mentioned Superfooty keeps switching things up so it's hard to keep track but it's important to note you'll need to go the full distance if you want to take home league silverware this season. So hang on to those trades if league supremacy is of interest as it's 8 long weeks to go.

Hawks

Well done last Thursday SCA, I was keeping an eye on my team, but also cheering yours on.

pete

is jack stevens a keeper or trade 10 trades left

In the Nick of Time

Are you thinking of trading him? Don't.

In the Nick of Time

Surely you've gone more pressing matters than Steven?

pete

i do bit of rage trade probably adams to hall this week and hold ranked 500 odd 9 trades left after this round

pete

ok

Danners

Definitely a keeper for now unless he goes on a long run of not scoring over 100

@wheels_1987

hold

Kev

Smitch or Shiel?

Andrew

Shiel, more consistent and a good run home

poloko48

Smitch $20K cheaper and averages 0.8 per game more.
Question marks over whether he plays all remaining games, but doubt he'll be rested now given how close the top 8 is.

@wheels_1987

agreed

big strong boy from Mooroolbark – get behind him

Southern S

Like Shiel, don't trust Hawks not to rest Mitchell.

ivan

guys have 8 trades left one upgrade to do… plus trade nick nat out of 2
goldstien 150k under orignial price or s.martain who might av within 5 pts of goldy for the rest of yr.. or do u think goldy can go 120 plus from now on

bUCKET__

Love Lycett to bits, but Goldy will dominate him this week. Chuck the C on Goldy and don't take a VC less than 140…

Southern S

large plums.

Southern S

When I say large plums I mean not taking any VC score below 140.

50_Shades

No special rules for Goldy, look what Ablett did to some coaches last week, take 120+ for VC if you get it.

Gord29

Current back line shaw Docherty Simpson Bartel Boyd Collins (lee Austin) thinking of upgrading either lee or austn to JJ or McVeigh or another defender looking for a pod

Danners

McVeigh would be the better option with an easier run home

Gord29

I'm leaning towards him at this stage but may end up going safer and picking liard

Crusty

LIKE THIS IF YOU WANT JOCK , HIGGO , CROUCHING & WAYNO TO POST THERE CURRENT TEAMS IN THE COMING DAYS !!!!! ❤️

Davonaise

Reckon thy should when finals start

Davonaise

They*

50_Shades

I'd like to see them. Don't they like to share?
Regardless of their unlucky or poor decisions, we'll still respect them in the morning…

Danners

Just look their team names up

@wheels_1987

haha
easy answer

jezzahill

How can you not be convinced about Zorko, Jock? Has only had two scores sub-100 for the year and they were a 97 and 86. Will finish as a top six forward if not THE top forward and you don't want him in your team?

Lachy

Some say he's busy with his personal life (recent child) but he's going to be averaging 100+ regardless.

Southern S

Sleepless nights from the baby crying, he'll be lucky to average 50 from here on.

50_Shades

Southern, it's amazing what parents can do in zombie state. He may just play like a man possessed. Let's face it, it's a day outta the house… I reckon he'll be on fire!!!

But I'm going to wait one more week before pulling the trigger, just in case.

Soothsayer

The AFL needs a program to help with family planning and careful management of that pre-season horn. It should NOT be happening at this elite level, no AFL child should be born between March and November.

Southern S

hahaha love it

Southern S

He'll be right!

@wheels_1987

Jock needs an Intervention

Zorko the Magnificent = Must Have

poloko48

Great call on Curnow guys – huge POD (0.5% ownership) but can he keep it going?
Another amazing stat – he's the 6th highest averaging MID in the last 5 rounds – staggering!
Better than Lewis, JPK, Bont, Neale, Titch, Hanners over the last 5 rounds!!!!

Beagz

And Waite was the highest scoring player over the first 5 rounds…. Everyone is late to the party

Davonaise

Haha that takes me back lol after round 6 I remember so many talking him up but I saw the problem with him, he had yet to play against a good defence structure and what do ya know plop he stinks the toilet bowl…..

Ben

Currently ranked just outside top 3000 with 6 trades left. 1 midfielder off full premo across all lines. Can make two trades (one up, one down) in order to get Hannebery, or just the one trade and get Shiel.
Thoughts???

poloko48

I'd prefer Hanners, but in your position prob go with Shiel, gives you one extra trade to play with as injury cover.
In saying that I reckon Shiel's been oversold slightly, gun player no doubt but not quite there as solid mid premo just yet.
Averages about the same as Sammy Mitchell who I don't think we'd class as a top 8 mid this year.
But hey, I've only got 2 trades left so maybe don't listen to me lol!!

Ben

Ideally i don't want to make two trades. I've actually changed my thinking and gone to Coniglio with 6k in the bank.
Only games he has scored below 100 has been against Geelong, Adelaide and Sydney…GWS do not play any of those teams again this year.
He could be the POD that gets me inside the top 1000.

Southern S

Like it, think outside the box he's been great this year. Only 1.7% ownership is amazing.

Hubba

Coniglio in for me too this week … well priced and ready to cash in on an easy run home

Zorko

Can anyone explain to me why jock isn't convinced on Zorko…..

Southern S

Just a gut feeling probably, I never ended up locking him in my forward either, picked dusty, lids and montagna ahead of him.

Don't ask me why though lol.

Moustachio

His scoring since Rockliff came back has left him overpriced. The recent baby is a bit if an unknown too. His BE is high, would upgrade elsewhere if possible and wait a week

Danners

Less midfield time, when he doesn't have much midfield time, he could put up some terrible scores

@wheels_1987

referring to yourself in the 3rd person…

get stuck into him mate

grow some ball

convince jock this week and give me 150 points

Davonaise

Looking back on first selections before the season started Bartel has been the difference in coaches defences. Has been very good so far, hope to grab him before finals and have a Rich as d7

50_Shades

He's certainly been serviceable, but it's understandable the long tooth had people not so sure. I bought him in about 4 weeks ago and I'm happy enough hat he'll be a keeper.

The Ranger

I reckon its Docherty that's been the bolter in defence.
From memory there wasn't a huge price difference between them but I went for Yeo instead and they currently have a 575 point difference….

Chubby McChubby

Conogilio?

Davonaise

Him or Sheil mate I rate both highly for a great run home that's for sure

Danners

A very underrated option, is nearly a top 10 player by average. Would rather him than Shiel

Chubby McChubby

I have Shiel already. I just think Conogilio is great value

@wheels_1987

amazing POD if you need one

MadTiger

Podcast Gold Jock.

Currently top 4% ranking. With 8 trades and &1k cash, is it worth trading Petraca & Cox to McVeigh & Silvagni? That Would take me to near full premo with Libba M8 and Rich D6. Not perfect but 6 trades for injury cover seems ok.

50_Shades

I like mcveigh, don't care for the silva I trade just yet. Can you do just one?

MadTiger

Thanks, unfortunately need the 2 trades to make it happen.

Kat

Keep Tom Mitchell or trade to Pendlebury?

Only have 5 trades and the trade would leave me with only 3. Ranked top 200 so getting pendelbury could be vital.

David

Hold the trades for now. Collingwood have a hard run home so pick your time and make each trade count from here

50_Shades

Yes, I wouldn't feel comfortable with only three trades right now. Bide your time Kat.

Moustachio

Everyone above you has Pendles, but none have the Titch (except for me, mwahaha). If Pendles gets injured or drops off due to Pies draw, and Titch goes on a purple patch, you can make up some ground

Kat

Thanks Moustachio. I know you have been ranked in top five recently. I was at top five not long ago too but had some bye trouble. Hoping for a comeback

@wheels_1987

hold Titch
good coaches show nerve in these times

Joe

Community I have both Kerridge and Petracca atm, who to trade first? I'm already using one trade this week on Nicnat to Goldy/Martin.

50_Shades

Kerridge. Are you going Goldy or Martin? I'm in the same boat and 90% sure I'll go Martin. I'm just not sure Goldys ok and whilst he may get up every week, I'm thinking he's going to limp home…

Joe

Leaning towards Martin too. Pros and cons with both rucks but don't think Goldy will be 100% for the rest of the year, and hence might be rested in the later rounds if North's finals position is secure.

One Touch Wonder

I know there are many people who havn't followed my SHARK MOVES this year. Deep down I know everyone is still cheering for me. But To celebrate the end of the bye rounds and for the final push for glory, I have yet another SHARK MOVE for people to jump on to.

I can't reveal it just yet, I still need to sleep on it another night just to make sure I'm happy with it.

Alex

Aaron Hall just went big, Tex Walker has been serviceable and Dayne Zorko is a star.

David

Is Ward worth trading in to fill my last midfield spot. What do you think community?

50_Shades

They've got a good run home, so he's not a bad choice. Might depend on who else you're missing though.

Danners

Yes he is if you don't have another GWS mid

50_Shades

I've been thinking about these suggestions to sell high. I don't think this makes sense.

In SC only game day performance determine price (whereas with investments, market sentiment, external and irrational factors can affect price), so if Dangers price is high, it's because he's kicking ass – Are you really willing to risk miss out on those potential points (which are proven over a long period of time) because that cash can help fund one or two other moves.

Maybe at the start of the season, maybe (in the hope he'll drop in price), but now we're getting to the business end, I'm not so sure…

Whilst investment people say past performance is no indicator of future performance, I don't think this applies on the SC team sheet – in short hold your healthy elite premos and find another way to fix up your other spots.

Note I'm not licensed to provide SC or financial advice 😉

Derek

one of my pre season rules was to "pay the price". It is still valid.

@wheels_1987

the arguement was you could turn danger into 2 other premos, so in that situation it would be coaches struggling who really needed a shake up

i would assume most people who use this forum wouldnt have been in a position where they needed to trade out danger, but there are some young supercoachs out there who were far from full premo

in which case trading danger to S.Mitchell and L.Parker PLUS pocketing cash may not have been the worst thing in the world

adam

6 trades left 116k full premo
last 2 trades where petracca to boak pod
davis to mitchell
thoughts please

Danners

The entire Port midfield (other than Gray) hasn't fired this season and it seems like it will continue. If you are low on cash, Viney and Sidebum are good options

Tommo09

Which fwd should I get next week?
I have Martin, Wells, Riewoldt, Franklin, Hall, Petracca (Barlow, Phillips)

If I trade Petracca out this week I can get anyone next week, but I have to play Phillips this week
If I trade Hopper out this week I am limited to around $480 000 depending on prices going up and down

Who to get and is it worth going Petracca even though it might cost me 20-30 points this week? I think if I can get anyone the player say Zorko could get 15 more ppg so it makes up for it.
Thoughts???

One Touch Wonder

My SHARK MOVE may help. Stay tuned.

Tommo09

Who is it???

Loop

Can we play a guessing game? I'm thinking that this one will be a midfielder.

Captain Awesome

Trade out Tex?

The Ranger

For Cloke?

Mitch

Hi Community, love your work as always. Pretty happy with my team just after some reassurance. 8 trades with 184k left

Shaw, Docherty, Simpson, Laird, Bartel, Tippa (Collins, Tucker)
Danger, Pendles, Ablett, Shiel, Priddis, Gray, Mitchell, Libba (Stewart, Trengove, Phillips)
Gawn, Goldy (Grimley)
Martin, Lids, Merrett, Montagna, Hall, Wells (Petracca, Howard)

I've got two options this week. Really want both Boyd and Hannebury/Neale but fall short by 20k

1) Tippa out for Boyd. Libba out for Ward/Parker/Treloar

2) Tippa out for JJ/Pittard. Libba out for Neale/Hannebury

Feedback would be much appreciated

Thanks guys!

Grahame Lebroy

Has anyone got any news on when Dahlhaus is expected to return to footy?

Gherkin

Heard a grab from Bevo on the radio this morning. He said 4 weeks, hopeful of 3.

Danners

Great work Jock and crew! Seems like this year the tagger/run with player has averaged pretty well. Curnow, Titch, Coniglio, Gibbs, Barlow and there are probably a few others doing well. One that I think people are overlooking is Coniglio. Is the 9th best midfielder by average and has the easier run home on playing 2 top 8 sides. Owned by only 1.7% of teams…

Cliffy

Love the podcast and love that the byes are over!

Simple question, I have 6 trades coming out of byes, compared to everyone else, is this still a reasonable number to cover off the inevitable late round rests, injuries, etc in the lead up to byes?

My team is almost full premo (just Tippa left at D6 for me as weakest area in the team), and I have alright bench cover across all lines.

Kev

Bit on the low side I think. Tippa needs to go as he's tiring and not someone you can get away with at D6.

Cliffy

*lead up to finals

Grahame Lebroy

I reckon you will come up short. But if your like me then its SC tradition to run out of trades before the year is out. But it comes down to if your lucky to have premo's who don't cop injuries towards the end of the year

Moosehead

Liba to Neale as I have the other main midfielders? My concern is will Neale continue on his merry way in a poor team and that is why I am not keen on Merrett even though I lack a mid-fwd swing. Thoughts.

Manuel

Hello Community! Great posts and advice.
I am a little stuck, going for cash league rather than rank.
Have 6 trades and 350k currently.
Team looks like below. What do you think I should do?

B: Docherty Rance Shaw Bartel Laird Rich (Collins Tucker)

Midfifield & Fwds needs upgrading. Move out Kerridge & Dalhaus, then Petraca/Wines. Look at Pendles, Hannaberry, Coniglio, Sloane. In forwards, consider Deledio, Franklin, JJK.

I was hoping to keep Barlow and Dalhaus as I brought them in as keepers and wanted to save the trade but it all depends on how long they will be out for.

It also means I have to keep Libba and/or Wines potentially.

But thanks for the tip.

Also considered Ward and Neale.

What do you think of Merrett in fwd?

Merrett is a good fwd option too. Some risk he may drop in scores as the season goes on but a very solid option.
