SuperCoach RD18: The Heroes, The Villains, The Damned.

Published by Jock on

Heroes-Villians-Damned

With just five rounds to go, the cream is rising to the top in SuperCoach.

The top echelon of players for this season has emerged – the stallions demanding to be picked in our sides through sheer weight of numbers.

If you don’t already have them, Danger, Dusty, Tmitch and Zorko are must-haves in the midfield, while Docherty is an obvious mainstay in defence, Kruezer in the ruck and Yeo and McRae up forward.

Par score for the round was around 2350, with some strong 2400+ totals across the board.

The Heroes

It’s going to be a ding-dong battle on Brownlow Medal night between the competition’s two best players. Dustin Martin (150 SC) and Patrick Dangerfield (142 SC) have been in imperious form this season, with the brute strength of both midfield beasts making them virtually untagable. Dusty had 25 kicks, 6 handballs, 17 contested possessions, 11 clearances and 1 goal on Sunday, while Danger collected 8 kicks, 17 handballs, 10 tackles, 15 contested possessions and a goal on Friday night.

Dayne Zorko (142 SC) and Tom Mitchell (126 SC) were industrious as always for their respective sides. Zorko the Magnificent accumulated 26 disposals, 12 contested possessions and kicked 3.1, while Mitchell notched up another lazy 37-disposal effort.

Defenders Shannon Hurn (149 SC), Michael Hibberd (140 SC) and Zach Williams (139 SC) all produced massive outputs, as did midfielders Dayne Beams (131 SC), Matt Crouch (134 SC) and Joel Selwood (127 SC). Ruck pair Sam Jacobs (133 SC) and Matthew Kruezer (128 SC) were the best-performed big men of the round.

Other significant scores: Callum Sinclair (148 SC), Jack Gunston (146 SC), Ryan Lester (134 SC), Cale Hooker (132 SC), Ben Brown (134 SC), Jordan De Goey (130 SC), Jack Crips (129 SC), Phil Davis (127 SC), Richard Douglas (124 SC).

The Villains

Bryce Gibbs (45 SC) was brilliantly blanketed by Tom Rockliff, which did not bode well for owners of either player. Gibbs was reduced to just 8 possessions, while Rocky gathered only 10 of his own.  Marcus Bontempelli (80 SC) just isn’t impacting on games the same way he did in 2016, but he should come home strong. He’s only produce two tons since Round 7, which is concerning.

Defenders Rory Laird (83 SC), Heath Shaw (82 SC), Jake Lloyd (72 SC), Alex Rance (71 SC) and Zack Jones (36 SC) were all below their best, as were forwards Toby Greene (84 SC), Tom Lynch (77 SC) and Jack Billings (75 SC).  Greene will also miss a number of weeks for yet another brain fade, which is highly inconvenient for his owners at this point in the season.

The Redeemers

Rory Sloane (169 SC) produced the ultimate redeemer performance for his owners on Friday night. The Sloane Ranger was hugely influential in Adelaide’s win, racking up 28 disposals, 7 tackles, 15 contested possessions and 7 clearances as well as kicking 3.2. The most encouraging part of his performance was his ability to work through a tag, with Scott Selwood and Mark Blicavs sitting on him for large periods of the game.

Ruck duo Brodie Grundy (125 SC) and Max Gawn (108 SC) both returned to prominence with dominant outings for their sides. Gawn just shaded Paddy Ryder during the Dees’ win over the Power, while Grundy dominated West Coast’s ruck division.

Mitch Wallis (124 SC), Luke Dahlhaus (115 SC) and Jason Johannisen (104 SC) bounced back from form slumps with exceptional contributions against Gold Coast on Saturday night. Wallis had 26 touches and a goal, Dahl had 23 and 2 while JJ had 22 disposals at 90% efficiency.

The Prodigies

Coaches still holding Hugh Greenwood (103 SC – 23 disposals and 8 clearances) and Alex Witherden (86 SC – 24 touches and 7 marks) continue to be rewarded with their strong output.

Plenty of other rookies are emerging as well:

First gamers: Conor Glass (84 SC), Harry McKay (72 SC), Alex Keath (64 SC), Will Setterfield (63 SC), Josh Williams (58 SC), Rowan Marshall (57 SC), Jack Scrimshaw (44 SC), Nick Larkey (1 SC).

On the bubble: Lewis Young (79 SC), Josh Deluca (40 SC), Cameron Zurhaar (37 SC).

The Damned

There is something seriously wrong behind the scenes with Tom Rockliff (57 SC). Rocky might already know he is leaving the Lions and his role may have been adjusted according. He tagged Bryce  Gibbs yesterday and did an excellent job. The problem is Rocky is supposed to be ball-winning pig, not a tagger. If this sort of rubbish continues, it will be panic stations for his owners. The form line of 92, 59, 83, 68, 90, 57, 57 since his comeback from injury is certainly a cause for concern.

Nic Newman (57 SC) and Toby Nankervis (54 SC) have been excellent contributors this season and have made their owners some nice cash. But it is becoming increasing clear that both players have reached their used-by dates and need to be discarded.

The old war horse Nick Riewoldt (75 SC) just doesn’t look the player he used to be. With doubts over whether he will play again next year, the veteran may have already taken the foot off the pedal this season. Since Round 5, St Nick has only hit triple figures once.

 

How did you go this week?

DacZawson

This happens every year. I'll do some calculations around R15 and it seems like I have a decent amount of trades to get me deep into finals.
First Pendles injured, then Goldy dropped and now Wingard injured and Nank and Lynch serving up poor scores.

TWO TRADES LEFT.

If Goldy comes back I can go Nank straight to Dusty but will have to cover Wingard with a rook.
Still in the top 4 of my cash league but by the way things are going I'm preparing myself for a quick finals exit.

INPieman

Brad Scott said rude words to Majac Daw. He wasn't very pleased with him. And Nick Larkey Had 2 Hit outs 0 disposals & 2 clangers for 1 SC point with 75% TOG. If Goldy doesn't get back in this week he ain't ever coming back

Whatyasmokin

Larkey's stats are the worst I've ever seen. Goldy back this week.

INPieman

Yep. If Larkey plays over Goldy this week that's tanking 101

stove

can trade in any fwd for nank, already have daulhaus, macrae, yeo, higgins, and buddy. Leaning towards heeney?

Rick Grimes

JJK. When he goes big he goes real big. I think even if he's off he'll still get you 70-80. I own Heeney and he's not really setting the world on fire. At best he'll ton up, but the ceiling isn't the 170+ JJK can serve up.

Derek

you can't do any worse than i did, traded in the Chad last week

Josh

I think I can just about top you there: traded yeo in 2 weeks ago- copped a 0 because he was a late out, then traded in Greene this week and he goes and gets suspended for 2 weeks.

Riot act

Had a gutfull (don't know if that's one or two words but I'm too angry to care) rockliff. He's gone. He cost me a couple of wins so Dusty is in this week. 4 trades and $70k left. Hope it's enough to get me through finals.

Rick Grimes

Has to go. Clearly he's playing injured. Beams is an interesting proposition. Cheap as and racked em up on the weekend.

Heath

I'm kicking myself because I cost myself 90 supercoach points. I didn't realize that you were assigned the score of the lowest emergency so with Powell-Pepper and Sloane on the bench I was assigned the score of Powell-Pepper. My final score was 2286.

mzd

money isnt an issue , surely u go dusty over jelwood right ?

Whatyasmokin

Depends on who you think will score more.

Randomcliche

Depends which finals you want Jelwood in Geelong playing for you….

Nic Newman's bro

Zorkonator or Z Merrett this week?

BrownlowBoy

Merrett, Zorko suspended for a week.

B T

Zerrett.

Not only is Zorko suspended this week but he is terrible when tagged. The impact he had in the Brsibane game allowed his team to get over the line. As Brisbane can win on their day, I would expect him to get heavily tagged for the remainder of the season.

Top Gun

It's only Brisbane. No need to tag as they're shite!

StainusHorribilus

The Tom Rockliff stain that is soiling my underpants is no longer… live by die by the Dane Beams sword.

INPieman

Agreed

BrownlowBoy

Beams is a decent option as a M9-10 option. 419k

JohndJames

I've had him from the start,I see his ownership has gone from 44.3% at the start down to 9.7%,I'm happy having him as my M8.

Jimmy

Traded out Sloane last week; if I see him, I'm gonna shave his freaking head and give him some medication for bipolar. Absolutely filthy, was patient for 9 weeks and copped his [email protected] and then as soon as I get rid of him he delivers. Spare me!!! 4 trades left and have Greenwood still playing, Nankervis, Heppel and Goldy on my bench.

BrownlowBoy

Care to share your team? Doing well to have those 3 on the bench with 4 trades left.

Jimmy

Haha no not that good. I meant Goldy on my bench, the other two are on field liabilities in Nank and Heppel. I have to play Darcy and Greenwood. Not sure what moves to make. Hopefully Goldy will be back scoring 100's.

Whatyasmokin

Then you weren't in a position to trade Sloane with that many trades.

Jimmy

The guy hadn't score over 100 in like 8 weeks. At that point I saw it as an opportunity to upgrade to a premium who was scoring like a premium. Also to my defence he was meant to be a late withdrawal. It's just amazing how I held on to that peanut for so long and now he pulls a big score. I still reckon opposition will shut him down most weeks though

ProTravo

Down to one trade, Toby Greene, Nic Newman and Nank still in my side.
All downhill from here.

Whatyasmokin

That's rough good luck.

Jake

I'm in the same boat , just with Rocky also. Boat.full off holes I can't plug

Charles

Is it worth trading rocky to beams if i only have two trades left?

jez_m

I'd save those trades for injuries, Charles.

BrownlowBoy

Zorko suspended for a week.

jez_m

Supercoach relevant suspensions: Greene 2 weeks, Zorko 1 week.

Tommo09

T.Lynch or Greenwood out for J.Kennedy for my last fwd spot?

Whatyasmokin

Lynch I guess.

jez_m

Lynch

Northerner

Lynch to score 170 as my E loophole in GF. He needs to redeem himself and that would be what it would take.

Mike

Do I go Bont to Dusty or Fyfe to Dusty this week??

P.Cripps

neither

B T

I know it seems tempting but don't do it.

wightyswarriors

SC 101 has cruelled many this year…….NEVER sideways trade

Mike

Surely you have to say enough is enough and that dusty is outscoring Fyfe and makes sense to trade!?

JohndJames

Depends on how many trades you have left,I'd still keep Fyfe though,had him from the start,hasn't been that bad,he is av 102pts a game and he's starting to come into a bit of form.

Stirlsy

2372 with 2 50s on ground not to bad, sitting 3rd 4th and 5th in the 3 leagues im playing.

GloryDays90

Greene out for 2 weeks and Zorko out for 1

Joshua

Covering Greene with Lynch, may god soothe my soul

Bald&theBeautiful

4 trades left, $111k in the bank

Doch, Laird, Adams, Roberton, Lloyd, Harbrow (Stewart, Scharen)
Danger, Jelwood, Bont, Oliver, JPK, Pendles, Scooter (Bolton, Fisher, Cousins)
Grundy, Nank (Strn)
Macrae, Yeo, Dahl, Lynch, Heeney, Greene (Greenwood, Brown)

Playing for cash league, guaranteed top 2 finish at this point.

Trade suggestions? A bunch of blokes have to go at this point, Rocky for sure, but who next? Scooter or Pendles? I’m keeping Greenwood as he scores well and DPP, and for that reason I’m also thinking of bringing in Witherden, even if he has risen to $300k.

(Rocky&Scooter OUT / Ebert&Witherden IN) or (Rocky&Pendles OUT / any combination of Dusty, Zerrett & Witherden, Beams) Thoughts?

Dean

You have only 4 trades left and you're wanting to bring Witherden in?

You're crazy mate. Save the trade ffs

Joel

Greene and witherden for Kennedy and roberton-have to trade witherden for the cash and takes me to 2 trades. Surely worth it

Whatyasmokin

Averaging 87.2 and with a negative 7 BE and you're trading. I suppose but don't be mad if he scores as much or more than the premo you trade in.

JohndJames

Keep Witherden,he's a very reliable bench cover.

Whatyasmokin

Ive decided to go into finals with him at D6.

hedski

Yep agreed Smokin, will be looping him with Tuohy/Rance/Lloyd, whoever plays earliest.

JohndJames

That works,I still have Newman as D6,but down to two trades so he will be staying,have Witherden as my bench cover in the mids.

Joel

surely roberton outscores him though

Joel

full premo so no need for his cash gen

Joe

4 trades, $132k

D: Doc Adams Laird Lloyd Rance Hibberd (Ryan Hibberd)
M: Danger Mitchell Zerret Bont Wines JPK Treloar Fyfe (Witherden Cousins Brown)
R: Gawn Grundy (Strandica)
F: Macrae Yeo Dahl Nank Heeney Lynch (Greenwood Bayok)

Leaning towards trading Ryan to Watson so I can loop Rance and Witherden, and going Nank to Ryder. Is Nank the right decision or should I trade Greenwood/Lynch?

JohndJames

Hey Joe,I'd keep Greenwood,he's good enough to have on the field,getting in Ryder is a good idea,then you just have to decide on either Lynch or Nank to trade out,I'd trade out Lynch,since Nank would be good bench cover for Fwd/Ruck cover.

Chief

Pendles to Sloane?

Is it worth it?

B T

Look back at Sloane's scorers prior to his 169 this week.

Don't do it, he will just go back to the same when he cops a proper tag.

Buget

No maybe to selwood

Russty_

Agree with Buget Chief, if you don't have Selwood, get him now, Sloane is too much of a Rollercoaster boy…even Beams maybe.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

cant quite crack it for 10/10 league wins
8/10 this week
My other league Titch to Scratch (you had to start with titch) is a belter.,
Hardly made it onto the winners podium all year in that one (missed the podium again this week), always come up against a team who has a day out.
Good fun but it is also rated 205 so serious competition there.
I guess if you started Titch you are halfway there as been magnificent all year. One game under 30 disposals – ball hog love it.
Gonna give Charlie a shake.

The happy place sits just outside the top 50 leagues in the land hopefully we can sneak inside this week (c'mon patch lift :))
might do a wrap up tomorrow think one is due

SC_Kev7

Yeah sorry Trig, Patch and I are really pulling your league down…

I did 2310 this week, gold star right?!

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Mate you gotta be kidding
Been gr8 fun and fierce competition.
With guys like you, jock, BVC, shake outside the 8 it is certainly a massive challenge every single week
Have to bring your A game every single week
yep gold star or elephant stamp this week mate lol

Russty_

Does Nank have to go?…before the wet game, he had scores of 108, 81 and 94..thoughts?
Was thinking maybe…to Kennedy or Ryder.
I'm only playing for Leagues, and have 5 trades left.

Rick Grimes

See if he's named solo ruck. If not I think he needs to go. I'd prefer to hold, but last weekend hurt.

Russty_

Tell me about it Rick…with Solvol playing (covering for Goldy for me) and the weather, I lost 7 out of 10 league games this week..and dropped 700 places in the ranks.

Buget

I would trade him to Ryder i think he has to go

Ryannn

Nank to JJK. Worth it???
Forwards are: Macrae, Dahl, Yeo, Higgins, Westhoff, Nank (JJK), Greenwood, Miles
Leaves me with 3 trades left for finals. Sitting top in 2 of my leagues and 2nd in the other.
Cheers

TRIGGA_HAPPY

is he your loop into your ruck if a ruck misses?

Ryannn

My rucks are Martin and Witts. If one misses ill just trade to a proven ruck

wightyswarriors

That alien Greene now on my never again list after this year.

Russty_

Gotta agree mate, he does like to let people down with his lack of restraint.

Rick Grimes

He does look like an alien wearing human skin. There's definitely something not working right in that head.

Buget

D: Doc, Adams, Laird, Hurley, Hibberd, Lloyd (Ryan, Nyhuis);
M: Danger, Zorko, JPK, Titchell, Neale, Fyfe, Rockliff, Shuey (Witherden, Maynard, Cousins);
R: Gawn, Grundy (Strnadica);
F: Ryder, Heeney, Macrea, Dahl, Westhoff, Yeo (Brown, Eddy).

I Want to upgraghed Rockliff to C.Blakley or someone good got 90 k now 4 trades might have to down grade as well in to 2 in all my 6 leagues Thoughts

SC_Kev7

You can do Rocky – Selwood for 70k.

GloryDays90

Should I trade Greene out? Pointless having a guy who wont be back until the last 2 rounds…

B T

Yeah probably.

SC_Kev7

Last week before finals start so if you're in a battle for a spot in the 8 I'd trade

GloryDays90

Na im 4th in all my leagues. But think ill get rid of him anyway

Pete

Think I'm gonna trade him for Macrae.

Russty_

Chances are if you wait for him to get back, he'll do it again his next game, he's an impetuous moron lol

Jim_bob321

Brisbane better challenge Zorko's suspension.
If Trent Cotchin and Ben Cunnington can escape suspension, surely Zorko can

GloryDays90

Totally agree. I have him and Greene 🙁

Stefan Valensisi

The force was visible by Zorko though, Plowman was in tears. Vince just flopped but Cotchin did deserve a week.

Jake.B

Brisbane are challenging it. Should get off.

hedski

No challenge, taking the week.

Jake.B

Bloody ridiculous they said they were going to last night. Cotchin is the afl love child

AFLSC17

5 trades left and 31k. Want to get in Kruezer for Nank, Glass in the mid for cover and would like to get Dusty or Titch

DEF: Doch Laird Simpson Rance Lloyd Hibberd (Ryan Witherden)
MID: Danger Zerrett Bont Oliver Jelwood Adams JPK Fyfe (Bolton Cousins Freeman)
RUCK: Martin Nank (Strnadica)
FWD: Macrae Yeo Buddy Dahl Lynch Heeney (Pickett Eddy)

Thoughts are greatly appreciated

SC_Kev7

Maybe sacrifice on of your back 6 (Rance imo) and shift Adams back. Glass in but will be M8. Nank to Kruze

or

Ryan to Glass. Rance out, shift Adams back. Think you'll have the cash for Titch/Dusty.

Randomcliche

People were floating with idea of selling danger….could free up some cash….

The Hoff

Def: Doc, Adams, Laird, Hurley, Hibberd, Lloyd (Ryan, Nyhuis);
Mid: Danger, Zorko, JPK, T.Mitchell, Neale, Fyfe, Rockliff, Shuey (Witherden, Maynard, Cousins);
Ruc: Gawn, Grundy (Strnadica);
Fow: Ryder, Heeney, Macrea, Dahl, Westhoff, Yeo (Brown, Eddy).

Thoughts

GloryDays90

You are similar to me and have to hope Brown comes back for collingwood to have bench cover FWD. You should consider getting rid of Rockliff though..

B T

How many trades have you got left?

Very decent looking team, if you have trades left I would move Rocky on.

Jelwood is still pretty cheap, it would only cost about 70k to make that move.

Paul

Walters Nakervis Hannan on my forward line
Newman and Jones in my defence
Only 3 trades left – ranked 600 and 2nd in my league
Any suggestions

Definition

Ranked 600 with those blokes?????

Paul

Besides Nank all others on my bench
Have Greenwood starting as fwd 6 if I don't replace Walters till final
Fwds Macre, Dal, Heeney, Yeo,
Def Adams , laird, Hurley , Howe , Lloyd, Dock,

ahmad rubas

who is better to loophole at d7 newman or lloyd?
and buddy loophole at f7 as sydney play friday night?

Randomcliche2

Llyod

Tyruddanaut

I am over with this season. So over that I am burning trades at will. Nank to Gawn gets me 1 left but f*** it

Northerner

Hold for one more week if you can. Gawn looked like he picked up a niggle and Nank had one spud effort in bath like conditions.

Tyruddanaut

There, my friend, is where you are wrong. Banks output since R6:
68, 92, 100, 75, 83, 72, 62, 108, 81, 94, 54

Russty_

I reckon re-evaluate your strategy for next season, I think at a minimum, you need either 2 trades and a fully playing bench (barring 1 loopholer) or 4 trades with a few non playing bench players going into the finals, otherwise you could end up with a very sour taste in your mouth at the end of it all..and then all your season's hard work has been for nought.

No offence bud, but you've got to try to save more trades next year for the end game (finals).

Tyruddanaut

If I don't trade then I have 2 trades plus full benches but I can't handle it. Greenwood can take over if a forward/mid goes out so I only need trades for Def or Ruck. So far this season I've only had 3 injuries so I don't think I'll many more

Whatyasmokin

Time of the year to get down to business. Lynch and Newman out, Titch and Ryder in.

Leaves Greenwood at F6 but Nank and Stewart F7/F8

Rocky M9, Myers and Cousins M10/M11.

Witherden D6, McGrath and Ryan D7/D8.

Goldy/Witts Cameron R3 for swing.

jez_m

Sounds like you're pretty well set. How many trades do you have left after bringing in Titch and Ryder?

Whatyasmokin

Only one after these. I am a bit hesitant to do them, but considering my bench depth it's probably the way to go. If Goldy is kept out (which I doubt) I may go to Gawn or Kreuzer, or even Ryder in the ruck. It's either save my three trades for injuries and potentially get knocked out of finals early, or save one and increase my scoring potential by 50+ points.

JohndJames

You improve your team big time,I'd do it and just hope for no injuries in the finals.Ps I'm down to two trades.

Randomcliche2

I'd sell Greenwood over lynch because of the ceiling, but yes titch and ryder and good options to bring in.

Whatyasmokin

Can only get Dusty instead of Titch if I keep Lynch, not sure about it as I feel Greenwood will score just as well as Lynch, and feel Titch is going to finish big, and has been so consistent.

TOPHAWK1

The trade levers are going to be in action this week. These two trades are massive.

Thoughts on these two trades?

OUT- Mitch Hibberd IN- Conor Glass (DEF/MID)
OUT- Toby Nankervis IN- Max Gawn or Matthew Kreuzer

Gawn would obviously need be a certain starter next week. (His current ankle problem must be monitored closely) If he is declared fit, he could get back to some of that majestic 2016 form. At his rock bottom price of $455K, this can simply not go unnoticed.

However, should Gawn not come up next week or there are lingering doubts about his fitness, I can afford to bring in Kreuzer. It obviously means that my warchest is drained.

Cheers

Russty_

Like it…injured guy out, promising rookie in and Nank out for a top 2 Ruckman, hopefully Gawny's ok so you'll have some moola left over.

TOPHAWK1

Thanks Russty.

If Gawn is declared fit, I just have to get him in. The Dees are finals bound, so the motivation levels with big Maxy have got to be really high. Gawnie, like the Dees, want finals action big time.

I have therefore flicked Ryder from R2 to the forward line (via Stradnica) where he will hopefully see out the season. Nank is now at R2 where he will now be replaced by Gawn.

I will then be ultra premo with 2 trades left going into finals. Both these trades will be used as corrective trades only.

Cheers

Russty_

What do you think Glass's JS is like Hawk…and whose spot did he take in the Hawk's lineup?, didn't see him play but his stats looked good.

TOPHAWK1

HopefullyJS is solid after his 84 SC against Freo in the West last Saturday night. Great effort.

He replaced Kurt Heatherley. (Omitted) The prick has done bugger all in defense for the Hawks.

Northerner

I think it's too big a risk going Gawn this week given injury history this year. If you can, give him one more week and you then have him for finals. That's what I'll be doing.

Defying_Madness

Solid trades. Expect glass to possibly be rotated out for Heatherley against taller forward lines. He should score well as bench cover though.

Tyruddanaut

Oooh….. I'm taking a massive risk with Gawn this week because he'll be better for the finals

The Hoff

Would Blakey be a good diffrent player for Rockliff

jez_m

At this stage I'd be leaning more towards a proven premo. Freo are playing terribly which might not help his scoring for the rest of the year.

GloryDays90

I like his game. Very good POD
Get him in if you want a POD

Leeds17

Going to be a gun but might be getting him right at his peak now

Rivo

4 trades and $75k left.

Who goes to help finalise the team?

1. Nank at F5 and DPP swing (have Ryder at F3) and Strnadica at R3;
2. Greenwood (M8 and DPP swing with Bolton (F7);
3. T. Lynch (GC) at F6.

Would love Dusty but need 2 trades to do it.

Tyruddanaut

I'm going with Nank personally. Greenwood seems better and he's a first year lol

Rivo

Yes Nank is all tanked out. Do I roll the dice on 2 x trades or one?

E.g – Mountford & Nank to Dusty & Young?

Or just do the one trade? Nank to ?

Doc

Lads, any suggestions to finalise/pimp my side.
2 trades. 94k. Sitting 2nd in my cash league but have to win last round to get the double chance.

Doch, laird, Adams, hibberd, Shaw, Lloyd (Newman, junker)

Danger, Titch, Jelwood, Zerret, Bont, hanners, Steven, Pendles (Greenwood, Hewett, Bolton)

Witts, Gawn (Strandica)

Yeo, Dahl, JJK, Wallis, Mccrae, Cameron (Nank, Bayok)

Any suggestions welcomed.

Tyruddanaut

Hold

B T

Yep, i agree. Hold trades and use Greenwood and Nank as cover.

Randomcliche

Newman to Sloane or Treloar.. or the safer longterm option of Newman to Howe, Roberton, Williams, Simpson and swinging or Llyod to the mids to cover pendles. I like the Howe move the most.

Cogla13

Only 2 trades left and you are still holding Pendles who had more surgery. Think you are going to run out of trades.

Jake.B

Finally got Docherty into my team this week for newman.

DEF| Docherty, Hurley, Laird, Hibberd, Lloyd & Shaw(ryan,junker)

MID| Danger, Titch, Zorko, Kelly, Merrett, Oliver, Bonti & Selwood (Witherden, Bolton & Miles)

RUCK| Grundy & Nank (Strndica)

FWD| Yeo, Macrae, Franklin, Higgins, Dahlhaus & Greenwood (Young & Deluca)

I have 3 trades left. Looking at doing nank to gawn next week (made my two trades for this week as of yet) then hoping to ride this team all the way to my cash leagues!

Defying_Madness

Will Rance bounce back? Haven't watched many tigers games but has his role changed? Worried about his scoring and with his run home he might not score many points. Having 60 points as D6 every 2 weeks is unacceptable. Considering a risky move of trading Rance to Sloane and put Witherden at D6. Sloane would be loopholed with Treloar/ Hanners who have crappy scores very often. If this trade is successful it could help me bump up the rankings.

Whatyasmokin

I could easily get whoever for my last defensive position but will probably gamble Witherden at D6 so I can move Rocky to M9. 57 isn't good enough for M8 but Witherden's 80+ is for D6. I like the move you are proposing.

Shaun

DEF: Docherty, Adams, Laird, Lloyd, Hibberd, Witherden (Ryan, Nyhuis)

MID: Danger, Martin, Jelwood, Oliver, Bont, JPK, Treloar, Fyfe (Mountford, Bolton, Hibberd

RUC: Kreuzer, Gawn (Strnadica)

FWD: Macrae, Yeo, Dalhaus, Buddy, Ryder, Heeney (Cox, Eddy)

5 trades left, 44k. Do I run with Witherden as D6 for the remainder of the year?
Any trade advice would be appreciated, thanks.

B T

You can run with Witherden for a little longer, seems good for an 80.

Then once he maxes out in cash you can turn him into Roberton, Simpson and the likes.

Jake.B

Pendles has just had a 2nd round of surgery for his finger. Trade him out guys don't bother holding him – for you people that have!

Randomcliche

That sucks but thanks bud..

Pete

Sitting 2nd in my league but could slip as far down as 5th if I lose this week. Have only 4 trades left. Should I trade out Greene for MaCrae ? Or should I hold the trades ? I'd have to play Mountford or Parsons onfield or both if J Cameron doesn't come back this week if I don't trade.
The DPP status will give me extra depth to cover both mids and forwards.

Would be a good idea to trade out Greene.

Macrae is a must have so I would recommend the trade.

Finnius123

Yeah I like it

Pete

Which 2 to play on field out of J Lloyd, Shaw and Witherden ?

Russty_

I'd say Witherden and Shaw on current form, and lack of form from Lloyd.

Bretts Hawks

mcveigh effects Lloyd a lot, id probably bench him

Whatyasmokin

Lloyd had 30 touches vs GCS in round 16. Since then only around 21 touches. Sydney are sharing it round too much.

I have faith he'll bounce back though and Shaw has been garbage I'd bench him.

P.Cripps

would Greenwood to beams be a good trade or is Greenwood a solid keeper

Bruce

Greenwood seems as good as Beams. wouldn't be a bad idea to hold him.

Whatyasmokin

Nowhere near as good as Beams, but then again Beams breaks down.

Northerner

His DPP is valuable this stage of season. Keep him.

Derek

Crouch will miss a few. Greenwood should get more TOG

Russty_

Greenwood's a solid backup..or starter and a dpp so, if you could trade out someone else, maybe do that.

GloryDays90

Keep Greenwood. Very good cover or will fill the last FWD or MID position

Jake.B

Greenwood is a keeper.

Russty_

Goldstein had 52 hit-outs, eight disposals and six tackles for Werribee in the VFL on Sunday in a solid performance after being dropped.

Surely Goldy has to get back in doesn't he?…8 disposals ain't that great though…fingers crossed.

B T

Definitely not as good as I had expected, although Nick Larkey blew his chance and boy it would be a miracle for him to hold his spot.

steve

I have Pendels but i also have 4 trades left.

I only want to use the 1 trade on Pendels which will leave me with 533K to get another Midfielder.

I currently have Danger, Treloar, Merrett, Titch, Selwood, Neale and Bont.

Who would you recommend community?

B T

Yeo, Oliver, Ebert and Parker seem like the main options.

Beams Is good value as is Rocky but both are fairly risky.

RobDog

Ebert. Is a POD and has been very consistent apart from a two week spell. Has a 3 round average of 120+ and BE of 55. Best bet IMO

B T

Dayne Beams or Dylan Roberton?

SC_Kev7

Beams

Whatyasmokin

How many trades left? Full premo? Impossible to answer without seeing the whole picture…..ie your team.

Finnius123

Best ruckman for the run home apart from Kreuzer or Gawn?

Pete

Ryder

Russty_

Mummy?…no secondary spud to stuff up his scores…or Martin if he lone wolfs it

Northerner

Kruezer is doing it week in week out and has been for many weeks now. Could be Gawn, but I think he needs to deliver this week to prove is not still injury or fitness affected. His BE is still 108 so even if he goes super large he'll be lesss than $500k still and that extra data point is worth the extra cash IMO.

Relton

Majak daw

Whatyasmokin

bahaha
