If there’s one thing we learnt from Round 2 of the AFL season, it’s that the big 3 at Geelong are going to be a serious force to reckon with. Dangerfield, Ablett and Selwood combined for 95 disposals, 47 contested possessions, 21 clearances and 4 goals.

In the words of the great Brian Taylor – wowee! Hawthorn just got over the line, but Geelong fans will be salivating as they cheer on their cats in September. The 4th member of the dangerous Geelong midfield, Mitch Duncan, was a late out, which was pretty disappointing for the 1.8% of us that have him.

Tom Lynch decided he could do whatever Buddy could do, and booted 8 goals to destroy Carlton in a very one-sided affair. Clayton Oliver is only in 6% of teams and is an absolute jet, I will be watching him closely as an upgrade target, and Rocky decided he would take a nap on the bench, and has fallen so far from grace it’s almost hard to remember what it was like when he was averaging 110+. This week coming is the first round of league games, which signifies the start of the Supercoach season for those of you who don’t really care about rank, and just want to get one up on your annoying co-worker Robbo who swears that ‘Jack Redden is going to be the next big thing.’

 

Apart from having a Mitch Duncan shaped doughnut in my midfield, the rest of the round was a successful one for me. I turned things around from last week – last week I was the lowest scoring player in our cash league, this week I improved by 400 points and was the highest scoring player. Is that a good thing? All I’m feeling is that this season is going to be an absolute rollercoaster ride, which is concerning considering I’m already going grey!

Top 10 Supercoach Scores:

  1. Tom J Lynch – 180 (10 points)
  2. Dustin Martin – 160 (9 points)

  4. Jeff Garlett – 152 (8 points)
  5. Tom Mitchell – 148 (6 points)

  7. Ollie Wines – 147 (4 points)
  8. Clayton Oliver – 146 (3 points)
  9. Jesse Hogan – 145 (2 points)
  10. Gary Ablett – 144 (1 point)

Leaderboard

  1. Tom Mitchell – 15
  2. Dustin Martin – 12
  3. Lance Franklin – 10
  4. Tom J Lynch – 10

  6. Jarrod Lyons – 8
  7. Jeff Garlett – 8
  8. Luke Parker – 7
  9. Blake Acres – 6
  10. Ed Curnow – 6

Tom Mitchell and Dustin Martin have stormed ahead on the leaderboard and have proven that they should be in 100% of sides come round 23. They are the only 2 players appearing on this list in both rounds, so the rest of the leaderboard is filled with players who scored big one week and didn’t replicate. Those of us who didn’t start with either Dusty or Titch will be seriously kicking ourselves and those who started with both will be kicking back with an icy cold beer and laughing in our faces. Screw you, Damo!

Captain Choices with Post MaSloane

Carlton vs Collingwood

Friday 6 April 7:50PM – MCG

Last time they met: Carlton 12.7.79 def. Collingwood 8.8.56

Top 5 Scores: S Petrevski-Seton 134, B Reid 130, M Kreuzer 127, M Murphy 118, T Adams 114

Matthew Kreuzer was a late out on the weekend, so obviously he’s not 100% fit. Even if he gets up for this Friday, I think you’d best avoid VC’ing him. Patty Cripps has never dropped below 84 against the pies, and seems to have taken the next step in 2018, but the main man I’d be considering for this game is Scott Pendlebury. Scored 109 on the weekend, has a 3 round average against the blues of 131.7 and a career average against them of 123.5. Carlton got done by Gold Coast on the weekend, and aren’t looking very good, so Collingwood would be hoping to steamroll them this week. Back in Pendlebury if you have him.

Port Adelaide vs Brisbane

Saturday 7 April 1:15PM – Adelaide Oval

Last time they met: St Kilda 18.13.121 def. Brisbane 12.9.81

Top 5 Scores: D Zorko 143, R Gray 129, R Lester 127, R Bastinac 122, P Ryder 119

Robbie Gray scored 111 and 129 in his two matches against Port Adelaide last year, and scored 111 on the weekend, after a week off enjoying the last of the Adelaide sun for the year. He could be a VC option. I wouldn’t pick Dayne Zorko, I’d wait to see a few more weeks to see how the tag is really going to affect him, but someone I would consider is Stefan Martin. Charlie Dixon got beaten by Callum Sinclair in the ruck last week, and anyone who thinks Sinclair is as good as Martin needs to get a reality check. Martin will jump all over Dixon this week, and while he only averages 80.3 against Port Adelaide, the absence of Ryder could be Martin’s opportunity to score 130+.

Melbourne vs North Melbourne

Saturday 7 April 2:10PM – MCG

Last time they met: North Melbourne 11.10.76 def. Melbourne 10.12.72

Top 5 Scores: C Oliver 170, A Swallow 131, J Lewis 119, J Ziebell 116, M Gawn 111

Remember that game where Max Gawn and Todd Goldstein scored 172 apiece? That was so god-damn titillating. If either can replicate that, that’s a really solid captain’s score. Chances are that won’t happen, but if you were going to choose one of them for captain, I’d go Gawn, as he racked up 39 hitouts, versus Goldstein’s 26, in their last encounter in the JLT. Melbourne also have a much stronger midfield to tap it to than North Melbourne – and on that note, young gun Clayton Oliver shows no sign of slowing down and should also be considered as a VC option.

Gold Coast vs Fremantle

Saturday 7 April 2:35PM – Optus Stadium

Last time they met: Fremantle 12.18.90 def. Gold Coast 10.7.67

Top 5 Scores: L Neale 156, N Fyfe 140, L Ryan 116, C McCarthy 109, S Hill 104

Nat Fyfe averages 136.4 against the suns. They literally can’t stop him. Who do you get to tag Fyfe? Bowes? Possibly May if he goes forward? It’s impossible. Don’t over think it, just give Fyfe captaincy duties and watch him gallivant around and do whatever the bloody hell he wants.

Sydney vs Greater Western Sydney

Saturday 7 April 7:25PM – SCG

Last time they met: Sydney 14.12.96 def. GWS 12.11.83

Top 5 Scores: S Mumford 120, L Franklin 118, J Patton 109, D Hannebery 105, K Jack 104

Lance Franklin averages 103.2 at the SCG, and last week continued his incredible stat of kicking at least 4 goals in every opening match at the SCG since 2014. He is every chance to kick a bag and go big in typical Buddy fashion. Luke Parker, Josh Kelly and Josh Kennedy all don’t have exceptional records against each other, so I’d probably give this game a miss for captaincy picks if you’re not brave enough to pick Buddy.

St Kilda vs Adelaide

Saturday 7 April 7:25PM – Etihad Stadium

Last time they met: Adelaide 16.15.111 def. St Kilda 7.12.54

Top 5 Scores: R Laird 134, T Lynch 116, B Smith 114, J Billings 106, J Newnes 105

In round 12 last year, Koby Stevens made Rory Sloane look silly, keeping him to only 14 possessions and 66 Supercoach points, despite Sloane racking up 5 Frees for. If Sloane gets tagged again this week, there’s no way you would put the C on him. Rory Laird has had an impressive start to the season, but I wouldn’t trust him to go 130+ because let’s be honest, the ball probably won’t be in Adelaide’s defensive half all that much.

Richmond vs Hawthorn

Sunday 8 April 1:10PM – MCG

Last time they met: Richmond 13.15.93 def. Hawthorn 9.10.64

Top 5 Scores: J Caddy 137, J Sicily 130, T Mitchell 128, D Prestia 124, D Martin 119

Points pig vs points pig. Untaggable vs untouchable. Tom Mitchell vs Dustin Martin. Who do you pick? Obviously if you pick a captaincy option from this round, it’s going to be one of these two. But which one? Martin has consistently scored in the 110’s against Hawthorn, but Mitchell has scored 126 and 128 in his last two outings against Richmond. I don’t have either (please don’t ask why) but if I did I think I’d choose Martin. Actually no, Mitchell. Wait no, Martin. Oh for god’s sake, just flip a coin, this is too hard to pick.

Western Bulldogs vs Essendon

Sunday 8 April 3:20PM – Etihad Stadium

Last time they met: Western Bulldogs 19.13.127 def. Essendon 13.19.97

Top 5 Scores: J Roughead 127, M Bontempelli 123, M Hurley 118, S Biggs 115, J Daniher 113

You have to go back to his rookie year to find the last time Marcus Bontempelli didn’t ton up against the dons. He loves Etihad, and Woosha refuses to tag. The Bont could be a good pick for Captain, however his extended stints up forward is a little bit worrying. A high risk/high reward POD pick could be to whack the C on Tom Bellchambers if you have him. Against the Eagles on Sunday arvo, the entire Bulldogs team combined for 13 hitouts. Yep, you read that right, 13. Trengove got 4, English 6 and Roughead 3. That really is second class. Bellchambers is looking really fit this season, the best I’ve ever seen him. He hasn’t had a good record historically against the Bulldogs (like I said, high risk) but I’d almost be banking on a massive score from the big fella. Lock him in and don’t check the scores until Monday morning.

West Coast vs Geelong

Sunday 8 April 4:40PM – Optus Stadium

Last time they met: West Coast 11.17.83 def. Geelong 10.10.70

Top 5 Scores: P Dangerfield 141, D Sheed 127, N Vardy 125, S Mitchell 122, A Gaff 120

Patrick Dangerfield proved that not even coming off an injury could stop him tonning up. He’s just a deadset superstar. He’s only in 17% of teams, but if you have him, you seriously can’t go wrong. Gary Ablett is the other one I’d consider for this game. He averages 129.1 against the Eagles, and played 91% game time in the midfield last week, squashing all rumours about him playing as a mid-forward, so he’s one to captain as well if you don’t have Danger. (Though I wish he would play forward so that Duncan could play purely mid!)

Post MaSloane’s Top 8 (Non-Dangerfield) Captain Picks 

  • Marcus Bontempelli
  • Clayton Oliver
  • Max Gawn
  • Stefan Martin
  • Tom Bellchambers
  • Scott Pendlebury
  • Gary Ablett
  • Nat Fyfe

Hey Community,
Now ive confronted an obstacle in my team and am struggling in the process of overcoming it. I have Beams at M7 at this point in time, and i am hesitant to sideways trade, these are my options:
1. Hold on to him and hope he offers some sort of premo value
2. Trade Beams down to Coniglio to make 100k so i have some extra $$$
3. Trade Beams to another big mid (keep in mind i only have 20k in the bank)

Let me know your thoughts!

    EasyMoneySniper · 04/04/2018 at 18:57

    Hey SMBB,
    I think it's a failed experiment and you need to offload him. Don't blame you for picking because beams is a baller but he is going through a hard time at the moment.

    My suggestion is that you move beams to a player like cripps…. same price range and cripps has a very good bye
    Or if you want the extra cash, go coniglio as he looks very good.

    Both have had their share of injuries so it should come down to bye round structure and a little bit of personal preference.

    Good Luck

    Adsy · 04/04/2018 at 20:17

    Straight up Beams down to Coniglio. I personally think corrective trades before the prices change are fine. Like Steve Miller said "Abracadabra!" (Note: he also said "take the money and run" which probably works better in this scenario)

    JohnDJ59 · 04/04/2018 at 22:13

    You must have a deep midfield if you have Beams at M7,Five premos and Coniglio would have been the way to go.I would be trading Beams out for either a rookie on the bubble you don't have,for cash generation or Coniglio who is a must at M6 or for you M7.

    DacZawson · 05/04/2018 at 11:40

    I’d trade down to a rookie because Kelly and Holman are doing too well to not field both. Use the cash to upgrade in one of your other lines

    Flaccid Jaff · 05/04/2018 at 16:47

    Definitely 2

Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 18:54

I’m currently choosing Gawn for VC. Against North Melbourne? He’ll thrive around the ground and might even beat Goldstein in the ruck

    Krups · 04/04/2018 at 19:10

    Good option

Krups · 04/04/2018 at 19:00

Fyfe VC
Danger C

    hedski · 04/04/2018 at 19:13

    Same

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 19:20

    I had that but I have a gut feel about Gawn

Harry To · 04/04/2018 at 19:07

Thoughts community?
Hibberd to Luke Ryan
Naughton to Bonner

    Krups · 04/04/2018 at 19:09

    Id go Simpson over Ryan.

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 19:21

    Yeah, that’s good. I don’t know much about Ryan but…. sure

Derek · 04/04/2018 at 19:07

You would expect Oliver will get a hard tag this week.

    Krups · 04/04/2018 at 19:10

    How does he handle tags in the past?

      Derek · 04/04/2018 at 19:13

      Not worth VC

      Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 19:21

      Poorly

        Wattsy · 06/04/2018 at 09:01

        Which tag were you talking about he went over the hundred 16 times last year which was about the best in the comp. when he missed out he just missed the hundred. All he lacked to the absolute top end like Danger was ability to regularly get really big hundreds.

        He's a first possession player and they are notoriously hard to tag. Add to that he basically didn't have a ruckman to work with last season and now Gawn is back and going alright

        Is it possible you are confusing him with somebody else

    hedski · 04/04/2018 at 19:13

    Jacobs will be all over him.

      Derek · 04/04/2018 at 19:28

      Might even bench him

        hedski · 04/04/2018 at 19:56

        Ha ha.

        Keenbutclueless · 04/04/2018 at 20:03

        I was going to bring him in for Crouch. Making me doubt that now!

          Russty_ · 04/04/2018 at 21:37

          He's worth having Keen, he's evolving as a player, a tag last year might not be as effective this year.

        Daniel Z · 06/04/2018 at 11:08

        Probably better to just trade him out and then once his price bottoms out, bring him back in.

    SC_Kev7 · 04/04/2018 at 21:10

    Jacobs went to him first half of JLT2 and suit him down completely. Wouldn’t go near Oliver for VC. Fyfe into Titch/Danger for me

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 05/04/2018 at 09:43

    Cripps into Fyfe…maybe.

    JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2018 at 12:16

    He scored 170 against North last year so yes you would,but I still expect a 100+ from Clarry.

iLoveNMFC · 04/04/2018 at 19:09

VC Fyfe, at home against a weaker Gold Coast midfield. Surely bangs out 140+

    Pecks1970 · 05/04/2018 at 01:41

    Away game for Fyfe. Still VCing him

      iLoveNMFC · 05/04/2018 at 01:44

      Playing home at Optus Stadium.

      Shake_n_Bake_ · 05/04/2018 at 09:45

      Away game but playing home because if commonwealth games.

StevoRivo · 04/04/2018 at 19:12

Mixed thoughts on this being a Tiger supporter. Thought Lambert would be a nice POD, but he’s about to drop $30k & seems to be playing a different role early on…

Naughton & Lambert to Bonner & Gray?

I’ve asked this before but seeking more feedback as it winds me down to 27 trades & low cash, but do have the right rook and premo mix otherwise.

Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 19:13

AT the moment it looks like my trades will be:
Hibberd —> Simpson (Role change, also considering Cripps, E. Curnow, Gibbs and Selwood)
Z. Langdon —> Bonner (Have the extra cash from trading Kreuzer, will bring in Langdon as an upgrade target

Krups · 04/04/2018 at 19:16

Gday Blokes looking for some advice.

Not sure on Sicily….

Should i go up to Franklin or Greene now or wait. Have $190,000 in bank

    Krups · 04/04/2018 at 19:18

    Should add i already have Heeney Billings Smith

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 19:24

    Wait. He’s going to be out a few times so just prepare your forward line early

      Russty_ · 04/04/2018 at 21:18

      The best way to prepare is to get rid of the idiot.

    hedski · 04/04/2018 at 20:14

    Greene in doubt for this week too Krups

    Russty_ · 04/04/2018 at 21:10

    Buddy or Curnow..not flogs.

    Ja191 · 04/04/2018 at 21:51

    Mclean or maybe tarranto

    Defying_Madness · 04/04/2018 at 23:49

    Hold

    Ryan · 05/04/2018 at 11:52

    I really like the look of McLean personally

The Wizard · 04/04/2018 at 19:18

Helll Community,

Really stressing on the whole Hibberd dilemma. It’s a really long season and I’ve never been one for sideways trading but is it worth parting with Hibberd? If so, then who to pick up? Or just persist with him and hope for better scores to start showing up?

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 19:25

    A good sideways trade pulls off!
    I’d choose Simpson, Hurn, Hurley or Savage

LUKE · 04/04/2018 at 19:33

Hello Community. I'm in two minds as what trades to do this week. First option: Merrett -> T Mitchell. Naughton -> L Murphy. Second option: Sicily -> Liam Ryan. Andrew Brayshaw -> L Murphy ???? 2nd option leave's 384k in the bank for next week upgrades possibly Laird and T Mitchell. I know the 2nd option sounds silly but if I do this ill have the top 9 scoring rookies in my team. Thoughts?

    LUKE · 04/04/2018 at 19:45

    Team before trades. 30 trades. $3000 in kitty. DEF: Lloyd, Shaw, Sicily, Marchbank, Doedee, Finlayson (Murray, Naughton) MID: Danger, Martin, Oliver, Merrett, Whitfield, Brayshaw, Kelly, Holman (Banfield, L Fogarty, Barry) RUC: Kreuzer, Gawn (English) FWD: Franklin, Greene, Heeney, D Smith, D Fogarty, Fritsch (Waterman, Venables)

Krups · 04/04/2018 at 19:43

Do you leave Naughton on the bench if you have all the other rookie options already? Just not keen he isnt going to make cash but dont want a dead wait on the bench not making me coin.

    Pecks1970 · 05/04/2018 at 01:46

    Just hold mate. He has good JS so just let him sit. That trade will be so useful later in the season.

Harry · 04/04/2018 at 19:58

What do u guys think of Cripps VC?
Big stage against the pies, without kreuz scored 115 against the suns…
If the Big Kreuz is back, what does the community think of Cripps VC?

    Noah · 04/04/2018 at 22:26

    I'm thinking the same thin too.

      Noah · 04/04/2018 at 22:26

      thing*

Chris · 04/04/2018 at 19:59

Views on trading out Sicily? Average score in round 2 and already suspended.

    MAcboi · 04/04/2018 at 20:36

    firm hold

    KSinny · 04/04/2018 at 20:57

    HOLD

    Russty_ · 04/04/2018 at 21:08

    Trade the Flog, maybe get a better player in Curnow, who isn't a dickhead.
    Sicily will get suspended again this season, maybe multiple times.
    He's a Flogicydal Maniac lol

      BadgerHoney7 · 05/04/2018 at 14:49

      HOLDDDDDDDD!!!!

        Russty_ · 05/04/2018 at 17:30

        You hold, I'll trade..and loving it!

    Northerner · 05/04/2018 at 17:44

    It’s way more fun barracking for him to spud up than having him in your team and hoping he performs.

    pod · 05/04/2018 at 17:55

    Flog.. dump him

    Defying_Madness · 05/04/2018 at 18:02

    Huge waste of a trade

      Russty_ · 06/04/2018 at 00:12

      No it isn't, it's an intelligent trade, intelligent, unlike him.

Wood · 04/04/2018 at 20:05

Speak to me people… What am I going to do with this Hibberd bloke ?

    Wood · 04/04/2018 at 20:08

    Defence is currently:

    Hurley Laird Hibberd
    Bonner Doedee Finlayson
    (Murray Murphy)

      JohnDJ59 · 04/04/2018 at 22:21

      I'm keeping him for now,since I have other players I have to deal with,Crouch for one,but if Hibbo is the only worry in your team I would be trading him out for Simmo.

        The Ranger · 05/04/2018 at 11:39

        What he said

      Steeeve · 04/04/2018 at 23:11

      You have everyone you need, hold

    CalebCripps922 · 05/04/2018 at 10:33

    I am seriously considering Hibberd down to Bonner which will allow me to get Brayshaw up to Dusty in a few weeks

      BadgerHoney7 · 05/04/2018 at 14:50

      Always start with Dusty, champ

Clarky · 04/04/2018 at 20:13

Which of these trades should I do? New to SuperCoach. Used 1 trade last week which was Olango – English

1. Keeffe – Murphy
2. Dow – Ryan (garlett into mids)
3 ZGL – Ryan
4 sicily – curnow
5 Mills – Ryan

    Clarky · 04/04/2018 at 20:14

    FYI, 5 is Luke Ryan. 2 and 3 is Liam ryan

      johnno2908 · 04/04/2018 at 21:39

      3. ZGL will not be making you any money being out injured. Ryan keeps that 115 in his average for a few weeks. Can’t even really use ZGL as a loophole either, as GWS play mainly early games each week until round 11.
      That, or maybe 4. Curnow looking impressive, Sicily still a flog.

Dennis · 04/04/2018 at 20:18

Thoughts on going Clark to Bonnar but moving Finlayson into the mids and then Giles-Langdon to Ryan? Will only have 10k left and would have Brayshaw, Kelly, Barry, Holman, Finlayson, Banfield, Garlett from M5-M11. Would most likely go Naughton to O'Connor next week just to get the kitty looking a little better. Anyway, that's my dilemma, would really appreciate thoughts.

    PeteB · 04/04/2018 at 20:24

    Any trade to get rid of Clark is a good one

Adsy · 04/04/2018 at 20:24

Opinions pls:
1. Merrett to Dusty (locked in)
and
2. Trade Keeffe OR Giles-Langdon for another forward (Ryan from WCE?)
OR
3. Hibberd to Simpson

If I go 2 I'll play Ryan on field, or Darcy Fog. If I go 3, I definately have to play Fog with no rookie $ generation up forward. I want to do the second corrective trade but unsure whether to go fix forward or back.

    KSinny · 04/04/2018 at 20:58

    Don't trade zerrett

Jim_bob321 · 04/04/2018 at 20:45

What do u guys think of Cripps VC?
Interesting option if Kreuzer comes back

    Paul · 04/04/2018 at 21:30

    Doesn't even need Kreuzer. Buckley doesn't tag, and Cripps doesn't stop hunting the ball. Will go forward, take contested marks and kick a goal or 3. That to go along with his 30 touches with 2/3rds being contested, 10+ clearances and a bunch of tackles….he'll score big.

      Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 22:36

      Or 5

My VC C option this week

Fyfe showed his brilliance in the air, on the ground and through pack last week. I know i said I need to see a couple of games for me to even consider him as VC or C option. Last weeks game was the Fyfe of 2015 i saw, against GC this week he might go huge. Very high option VC for me this week

Gawn had the better of Goldy in JLT, i believe he'll do it again and will kick 1 or 2 goals against my Roos outfit. Flipping a coin atm between him and Fyfe as my VC.

Oliver he will do well against North, I don't think he'll score enough to be my VC option this week. He will be tag by Jacobs who did an awesome job with Steven and Ross.

Kelly has never scored well against the Swans with Scully out and Cogs is slightly hurting his point scoring. I'll pass this week.

Titch is just a freak 54 in Rd 1 and 40 possessions last week hard to not put the big C on him each week. His whole team protects this freak, unlike Sloanes team last season poor guy struggled with the tag. Safe to say he'll be my Captain this week.

Danger is just magnificent with 130 last week playing with quality midfielders along side him the like of Gaz, Jelwood and that rookie Kelly. He's still the main man for your Captain choice through the season. Flipping the coin between him and Titch at this stage.

    VC Titch, C Danger, with Olango in the last game of the round… shame I don’t have Danger.

    I VDd Fyfe last week, and he looked bloody good for 120. Just hope he can push that to 135+ this week against the Suns.

      SCdonkey · 04/04/2018 at 22:00

      Wish i had Olango, my loophole this week will be Langdon GWS plays on Saturday night. Good option for those who has Olango to put VC on Titch and C on Danger.

      Russty_ · 04/04/2018 at 22:03

      You VD'd Fyfe last week Johnno?..does that mean you had sex with him? 🙂

        johnno2908 · 04/04/2018 at 22:12

        Apologies mate, VC’d him.

      Tyruddanaut · 05/04/2018 at 07:42

      The problem with that is you need to be available with minutes to spare, so if something happens….

        johnno2908 · 05/04/2018 at 08:11

        The game will be over before the other one starts by about 30 minutes. Even then, you will probably know around 3/4 time which gives you an hour. I won’t have to worry about it because I don’t have any of Ablett, Danger or Selwood. I will be putting the VC on Fyfe.

Sam · 04/04/2018 at 21:20

Question for the community: took a risk and started Ryder as ruck alongside Gawn, now his achilles is gone any picks to replace him?

    Russty_ · 04/04/2018 at 21:23

    Nank, Nicnat, Witts, Goldy, Grundy…Kreuzer if he's ok.

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 22:34

    I’d pick in order
    Nank, Nic Nat, Witts, Kreuzer,

    Derek · 04/04/2018 at 23:46

    I would say Big Boy is playing as good as any of them. Dominated on the weekend.

    Only problem is Ceglar is only a few weeks away

      Tyruddanaut · 05/04/2018 at 07:43

      He’s not in the best 22 though

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 04/04/2018 at 21:30

Will have to wait on teams as might not have a looper this week.

If thats the case dont think you can go past titch as capt.

    Russty_ · 04/04/2018 at 21:35

    Hey Trig, you reckon Keefe will get a game this week?

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 04/04/2018 at 21:40

      May bring him in for ZGL.

        Russty_ · 04/04/2018 at 21:44

        I only kept him for a loophole but I still have Bingobangobongo lol

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 22:33

    I’m going past him and choosing Danger. Olango with the Loophole playing late on Sunday

L G · 04/04/2018 at 21:33

Is Fisher a thing ?

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 22:31

    He’s looks like he is assuming a new role in the midfield. Could be the goods, but you are taking a risk

      Rick Grimes · 05/04/2018 at 08:26

      I'm thinking it's a risk worth taking.

SC_18 · 04/04/2018 at 22:07

I don't have Coniglio and have been less than excited with JOM's scoring. So, I'm thinking:

Sicily > Bonner
JOM > Coniglio

Thoughts?

    Nick · 04/04/2018 at 22:20

    I would hold Sicily

      Russty_ · 04/04/2018 at 22:23

      I wouldn't, Bonner, if he goes nuts this week and or next could keep Broadbent out from ever getting back in, Pittard not back for 3 weeks or so, Houston or Clurey could be out before Bonner…could even be a keeper, time will tell.
      JOM to Cogs is a good trade.

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 22:31

    Sicily should be held, but do look to downgrade JOM

Nick · 04/04/2018 at 22:20

I know this is a sideways trade but what are everyone’s thoughts on Hibberd to Simpson and Naughton to Bonner?

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 22:30

    Pretty much what I’m doing but replace Naughton with Langdon

    Russty_ · 04/04/2018 at 22:31

    Hi Nick, 758 people have already asked the exact same question in the last few days, maybe read through the forums first?
    Trust your own gut feeling / Choice.

      SC_Sixty6 · 04/04/2018 at 23:25

      Hahahhaha Russty! yesssss! Gold. I see alot of nuffies come on here and go straight to the comment section and start typing their problems without reading thinking that they are the ONLY one with a dilemma.

      That's why I've taken a back seat with answering questions. Waste of time. Although I could copy and paste the same response.

      Derek · 04/04/2018 at 23:57

      Only 758?

        Russty_ · 05/04/2018 at 00:01

        Maybe 1758…lol

    Derek · 04/04/2018 at 23:59

    Hibbo is going to be very high on my watch list in coming weeks. If his role changes and starts doing the kick ins and he is $400k welcome.

      Nick · 05/04/2018 at 05:44

      sorry boys

        pod · 05/04/2018 at 07:02

        Dont be sorry Nick they are old and boring nuffs who believe they have a right to insult people because they've been on this site since the dinosaurs. Keep asking whatever you like buddy and good luck with your decisions.

        The trades you highlighted are solid and with merit.

          Rick Grimes · 05/04/2018 at 08:28

          Yep, ask away and ignore the cranky sods. This is still a welcoming community.

            Sc_Wow · 05/04/2018 at 09:29

            Give him some advice then Rick if you’re so keen on blokes asking the same question all the time

          Sampson · 05/04/2018 at 22:37

          then why don't you leave mate if its boring, don't insult nick for asking a question. Ive seen you on here before judging peoples comments, think you were quoted as being the ''çomments police''

          pod · 06/04/2018 at 05:36

          So now you yhink you deserve respect? I'll respect who I want and it isn't someone like you the way you carry on.

          Most of the community doesn't want to hear your negative stuff just the constructive talk is welcome.

        Defying_Madness · 06/04/2018 at 04:23

        Yeah using control F and then searching in the players name can go a mile

    Blaknight · 05/04/2018 at 21:16

    Purple Monkey Dishwasher.

    That is all..

      Russty_ · 06/04/2018 at 01:54

      I'd like to own one of those!

Freddy · 04/04/2018 at 22:24

Keep or trade Mills? His role worries me a bit, only scores well when he is used as a lose man and the swans look to McVeigh and Lloyd out of defence.

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 22:30

    I’d trade.
    He’s not worth the money

    Derek · 05/04/2018 at 00:24

    I have a cognitive bias towards Mills. Watched him play for years in the swans academy with my son, absolute gun and always played in the midfield. Went to the Swans and they put him in defence. Never had played there before. I’m just waiting for the day he goes into the midfield because I’ve seen what he can do.

    I started him again.

    Week one he scored ok as the loose player in defence. If he plays that role, only expect 80-90.

    Last week McVeigh took the role of the loose man and Mills was given a defensive role. I hardly saw him touch the ball.

    He isn’t playing midfield and looks unlikely.

    I’ll probsbly be moving him on, get Simpson. Sorry to say

    Rick Grimes · 05/04/2018 at 08:30

    Trade I reckon. There's too much competition for those points. Even if McVeigh was sidelined, I don't see Mills tacking up tons. Maybe in future years he'll get a decent run and be SC relevant.

Jeff · 04/04/2018 at 22:24

Coniglio or Oliver?

    Russty_ · 04/04/2018 at 22:28

    Oliver

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 22:29

    It depends.
    If you want value, Coniglio
    If you are purely looking for a high score, Oliver

    Rick Grimes · 05/04/2018 at 08:33

    Very different price points. Clary is a gun and a vc option every week. Cogs going great and will make cash but do you intend keeping? If not, you're burning am extra trade. Also, Cogs a tad brittle in the past. I feel if you didn't start with him best not to bother chasing.

      Derek · 05/04/2018 at 09:22

      Agree. If you started him well done. If you didn’t, you need to be waiting for the Merritt’s, Kelly’s, Dusty’s, Danger, crouch, Zorko, tMitch, Sloane types to get cheaper and snap ‘em up.

      Don’t think Coniglio is quite top 10.

Aqua · 04/04/2018 at 22:25

lachy fogarty a decent downgrade option for will brodie?

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 22:28

    No. He isn’t projected to raise in price highly and with his role, he might not surpass 200k.
    Look towards Barry, Garlett, Banfield, Fogarty and potentially O’Connor

Mervtheperv · 04/04/2018 at 22:30

Hi community.
A few hours ago I asked Barron or anyone who has an informed opinion about my plan to get Dusty Martin in my team which is struggling after two ordinary weeks, however I didn’t get a response.
I have enough to get Martin if I do ONE of these trades.
Dow, (I have learnt not to buy expensive rookies) to Barry, or
Naughton to Murphy.
Who out of Barry and Murphy has the best job security as they are both in strong sides?

    JohnDJ59 · 04/04/2018 at 22:40

    Dow to Barry,but really either would do.

    TommyC99 · 04/04/2018 at 23:04

    Barry’s JS is much better than Murphy, so I’d do that

      Derek · 04/04/2018 at 23:55

      Agree. Barry looked good

        Mervtheperv · 05/04/2018 at 05:05

        Thanks guys. Barry for me.

      Sc_Wow · 05/04/2018 at 08:56

      Who are you trading for dusty

    Mos' Grossest · 05/04/2018 at 14:20

    Dow to Barry

Clint · 04/04/2018 at 23:00

What’s more important, trading ZGL – Ryan or trading Mills

Mark · 04/04/2018 at 23:01

Is it worth trading Keeffe – Murphy (gives me the funds to make another trade but means I lose link with Sicily in fwds and won’t hand non playing loophole in def

    StevoRivo · 05/04/2018 at 09:04

    I have Keefe also for the same purpose Mark. With Langdon out he may come into the team this week as he’s been emergency for 2 weeks. Wait for selections tonight. I have Murphy already so the trade temptation isn’t as strong. Decide from there.

    Derek · 05/04/2018 at 09:17

    Murphy is a big risk. Even if he plays this week he might miss next.

Andrew · 04/04/2018 at 23:08

Hey guys after some advice. Really happy with my team. Only real issue is Beams. I dont have Ryan or Murphy but have all the other main rookies. Have 3 options for my trades this week and interested to hear thoughts.

A) Beams to Cripps & Zgl to ryan/keefe to murphy- Leaves me with round 185k

B) Beams to Ryan via dpp & Keefe to Simpson- Leaves me with 193k

C) Beams to Ryan & Keefe to Murphy- Leaves me with 607k

Leaning A however with b and c it only means playing Kelly in the mid which is fine with brayshaw and holman. I only have 2 premos in defence w bonner so Simmo would be playing instead of Murray. C is risky but allows me to have another look at players/take advantage of price drops and potentially go 2 up in one week.

    Tyruddanaut · 05/04/2018 at 07:25

    I’d choose B) Strengthening defense

    Derek · 05/04/2018 at 09:15

    Do you know what is wrong with Beams?

    Is he getting more attention? Is he injured?

    I think that is your question. You need to decide if Beams can bounce back and back him to do that. I haven’t seen his games and don’t have him. Find someone who does know. You try and keep your premiums if you can.

    Also try and buy your premiums cheaper than their starting price.

      Andrew · 05/04/2018 at 13:08

      I know Beams hasnt had much of a preseason I think he'll have a big second half of the year but cant have 70s from one of my premos till then.

      Cripps and simpson both have low B/E. I think Cripps price is basement right now and hes the only mid prem I'm comsidering this week if I go that way.

SC_Sixty6 · 04/04/2018 at 23:32

Will be putting a big peice of advice in my memory bank for next year. NO FLOGS POLICY! in my team. Giving me a headache 2 weeks in a row not to mention injuries to take care of.

Fyfe or titch for VC and Danger C. Danger sat a full qtr up fwd against hawks because Scott is a dud. He has the best player in the comp sitting up fwd and couldn't get it to him. Leave him in the guts Scott!!!! Too busy living in the past when danger kicked 5.6 last year.

    Russty_ · 04/04/2018 at 23:36

    Actually played 42% forward 66!….too damn much, if he was midfielding the whole game would've scored 160+ and Geelong would've won, guess Scott could be forgiven for being cautious but Danger isn't some ordinary player, play him where he belongs!…getting clearances out of the middle.

      SC_Sixty6 · 04/04/2018 at 23:47

      Danger will pull a 150 this week minimum. Make sure your VC owns if you loophole.

      Any plans on getting Martin in Russty? You've scored well without him so far though.

        Russty_ · 04/04/2018 at 23:52

        Just gonna let it unfold Sixty6, I do want him in there, but think he'll drop heaps at some point and then I'll pounce.
        Latest post is part of the plan.
        Latest post now deleted haha

    Northerner · 05/04/2018 at 09:06

    It’s even better when you don’t have a flog like Sicily and you can cheer on his 50m senseless frees, his kneeing antics and low scoring.

    I might make an exception for Greene later in the year as he’s a special talent in a team that looks like dominating, but only if I’ve got spare trades to correct when he fronts the mrp.

    Keeping a close watch on Ryan(Freo). If there was a player showing Docherty like traits of clean hands, ball winner, uses by foot and immaculate DE, he’s looking likely. Think he’s showing some great signs of really breaking out to next level.

      SC_Sixty6 · 05/04/2018 at 09:34

      I started with Ryan as I feel he is D6-D8.

Derek · 04/04/2018 at 23:52

Does anyone know why Barlow isn’t playing?

    David C · 05/04/2018 at 07:15

    They are giving the younger guys 1st crack in the mids. Plus too many inside mids at GC. Brodie cant get a games either at the moment.

NoLanguage · 05/04/2018 at 00:37

Remind me why the bloke without Dusty or Titch is giving captaincy advice?

    Tyruddanaut · 05/04/2018 at 07:22

    Just compare the scores of players with his recommendations. It’s more for inexperienced or undecided players

    Headley · 05/04/2018 at 08:59

    Probably a 14 year old keyboard Warrior.

Ethan · 05/04/2018 at 06:38

I’ve got 30 trades left and all the correct rookies, Ranked currently 35k. I’ve finished top 1000 3 Years in a row but I’m always open to advice so I’m wondering what you guys think of a bold move in trading Merrett to coniglio bank some cash then bring Merrett back into my side in a few weeks to try hit full premium side as fast as possible to make up for lost ground

    David C · 05/04/2018 at 07:16

    Just burning trades.

    TOPHAWK1 · 05/04/2018 at 09:03

    Hi Ethan. I would not do it. You are much better off saving your trades, and having crucial trades at the back end of the season. It is then you can rocket up the rankings as others run out of trades. Just my take. Good luck!

    Derek · 05/04/2018 at 09:06

    You don’t get a Coniglio to make cash. That is what Holman and Murphy are for.

    I would love to bring him in, but I have no room, would come in as my M7.

    Merrett will be top 10. Keep him all year and don’t give a stuff about his price

ChewyOnYa · 05/04/2018 at 07:56

Is naughton to bonner worth it? My team has had no injuries (other than ZGL) and only other corrective trade I am considering is Hibberd to Simpson.

Do i pull the trigger?

    Derek · 05/04/2018 at 08:14

    759

      Moosehead · 05/04/2018 at 08:57

      What does 759 mean Derek?

      Russty_ · 05/04/2018 at 17:43

      Haha

      Defying_Madness · 05/04/2018 at 17:48

      hehe

    Rick Grimes · 05/04/2018 at 08:37

    On evidence to date Naugton is up to naught, but equally, Bonner could be a trap. Neither is a keeper so comes down to value of a trade. If Naught can rack up a couple of 70s, he'll start making money. Maybe not as quick as Bonner, but you'll save a trade.

      Derek · 05/04/2018 at 09:03

      Bonnar is bit expensive. Will make some cash, maybe $60k more than Naughton, but that not worth a trade.

    CalebCripps922 · 05/04/2018 at 18:54

    I think that's what i'm doing Hibberd to Simpson.

Tyruddanaut · 05/04/2018 at 08:17

I’m looking ahead a bit, but Buddy Franklin in R7?
Will have already played Giants, Adelaide and Cats in the previous 4 rounds and didn’t score great against Port.

Then he has, in order: North, Hawks, Freo, Brisbane, Carlton, St. Kilda, Eagles (who he has already belted).

In the next 9 games, he has 3 hard teams (GWS, Cats, Richmond), two of which are immediately after their easy streak. Then Essendon and Melbourne and the rest are very easy.

In addition, he has Hawthorn – a medium tier team – for the Supercoach grand final.

The main issue is his R14 bye. I already have Walters, Heeney and Billings playing, although I am highly considering bringing in a secondary DPP in the midfield, for this situation, and potentially bringing him in for F7, if I choose a premium. Otherwise, by then, Higgins and Ahern should be ready and Garlett and Barry should be plump as a plum.

Thoughts?

    Rick Grimes · 05/04/2018 at 08:40

    Buddy always gonna be cheap at some pointf in the year. I'll likely go for him post byes unless he gets ridiculously cheap. Paying top dollar noe and my wallet has too many months in it to be in the buying mood.

    DacZawson · 05/04/2018 at 11:48

    I saw this in the pre-season and is my exact thinking. I didn’t start him but promised myself that I’d get him R7 and watch him average 120+ in the next 7 games

Captain Risky · 05/04/2018 at 08:46

Jack Higgins to make his debut this week for the Tigs. Looking forward to seeing him play. Should be a good fwd/mid downgrade option in a few weeks!

    TOPHAWK1 · 05/04/2018 at 09:06

    Very handy!! A really good young player by all reports. Hopefully if he scores OK at has decent JS, he could be perfect to snap up in place of ZGL or Naughton via DDP in two weeks. On the watch list he goes!

    Tyruddanaut · 05/04/2018 at 09:29

    I’m disappointed! Hoping he would come in around R5 or R6

      Sc_Wow · 05/04/2018 at 12:25

      Could be a decent swap for a Liam Ryan, make some quick cash

StevoRivo · 05/04/2018 at 08:58

Some help please – trade or hold? Have 29 trades & $125k

D: Laird, Hibberd, Doedee, Murray, Finlayson, Murray (Sicily, Naughton)
M: Danger, Titch, Dusty, Fyfe, Cripps, Cogs, Kelly, Holman (Brayshaw, Banfield, Garlett)
R: Gawn, NicNat (Olango)
F: Heeney, Lambert, Smith, Petraca, Fritsch, Ryan (Langdon, Keefe).

A couple of obvious trades but injuries aside, is it really that necessary? I think Lambert, Naughton and Hibberd will come good & Langdon is the only injury with a 4 week wait. Keeping Keefe as a swing with Sicily.

Thoughts please?

    TOPHAWK1 · 05/04/2018 at 09:16

    For me its a hold, purely because you used an early trade last week. Had you still had 30 trades, you may have been able to do something about Lambert. Perhaps straight switch to McLean for example. But conserving your trades at the moment is IMO much more crucial. And like you say, Lambert and Hibbo could easily tonne up this week. They are good enough players. I still have 30 trades, and am planning not to trade again this round. Just no need, and I have Hibbo and ZGL too. Good luck mate!

      StevoRivo · 05/04/2018 at 12:48

      Thanks TopHawk. Think I will hold. Lambert may drop cash but I still think he can get to 90 avg once the Tigers have a few back from injury & get rolling again.

    Sully321 · 05/04/2018 at 09:34

    You've got 2 Murray's in your backline

      CJudd3Votes · 05/04/2018 at 09:46

      Lachie (Adel), Sam (Coll)

        Sully321 · 05/04/2018 at 09:59

        Lachie Murphy?

          StevoRivo · 05/04/2018 at 12:44

          Yes correct – I have Murray and Murphy. Spell check next time!

Rick Grimes · 05/04/2018 at 09:18

I was strong on holding Lambert but Gray looks so much better sitting in my forward line. I could wait a week on both I suppose. Hmmmm, this game can be a real mind f$#k sometimes.

    Crowboy94 · 05/04/2018 at 10:28

    I have changed my mind. Got rid of Lambert to Mclean who was the other one I was going to pick in pre season. And have downgraded Clark to Higgins.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 05/04/2018 at 11:50

    As long as he doesnt sit in ports fwd line for too long.
    Happy with his early bye?

      Derek · 05/04/2018 at 12:16

      everyone thought that RGray back last week he would play forward and Rocky would be in the guts. opposite happenend.

      If it wasn't for him missing round 1 and the round 10 bye, he would have been a lock in my starting team.

      Gray that is, not Rocky

        Sc_Wow · 05/04/2018 at 13:14

        Still could be worth looking at, they play a lot of weak teams before that round 10 bye. And by that stage we should have solid cover.

        SCdonkey · 05/04/2018 at 13:44

        That's what i thought, when Robbie returns Rocky will be in the guts. Saw the line up and Rocky was named at HF, pulled the trigger and brought Danger in early.

        Gray will be spending more time in midfield, Rocky's knee still not right for him to be running up and down the ground.

    Maverick_ · 05/04/2018 at 13:26

    Flirted with Taranto, curnow & even Down to ryan to bank a big kitty for dusty in a few rounds time but now have decided I’ll hold (for now).
    Bloke works harder than anyone else I know around the ground. Hoping the scores come. Selected him as a keeper to average 90+, it’ll come I hope RG

Hi Community,
Thinking about trading Hibberd (255K in the bank)
I have 3 Options
1. Hold Hibberd upgrade Naughton to Bonner
2. Trade Hibberd for Simpson, Then upgrade Clark to Coniglio
3. Trade Hibberd for Bonner (leaving me with Savage and Laird as my only two premiums) and trade Clark to Dusty Martin

Which option is best?

    Sully321 · 05/04/2018 at 09:48

    if you have titch and Danger then go option 2. if you only have one or none of those two then go with 3

      Corza · 05/04/2018 at 09:55

      Yeah I have Titch and danger

Northerner · 05/04/2018 at 09:23

Was contemplating moving on Lobb. However, playing Sydney this week, who are largely ruckless and will find going a lot easier. If he fails again and is not looking up to it, still have a week to target Taranto, Christensen etc. if needed.

Some discussion about Smith in for scans. Anyone have intel?

    Derek · 05/04/2018 at 12:13

    Lobb will do well against the weaker ruckmen. Scored 97 against English round 1, but struggled against Grundy last week.

    Have to remember he had an intereupted pre-season and it showed on the weekend, scored 12 points in the second half.

    has Sinclair this week, should do ok.

Adam · 05/04/2018 at 09:28

Lookn at downgrading hibbo to savage or Ryan ?
Then upgrade bell to a keeper any thoughts or ideas

    Sully321 · 05/04/2018 at 09:40

    depends on who you can get when upgrading Bell, but if I was just choosing between savage and ryan i'd go sav

Sully321 · 05/04/2018 at 09:33

someone help please:
D: Laird, JJ, Mills, doedee, Finlayson, Murray (naughton, Keefe)
M: Dusty, Titch, Ablett, Merret, Fyfe, Cripps, Kelly, Holman (Brayshaw, Banfield, Barry)
R: Gawn, NicNat (Olango)
F: Walters, Smith, Petracca, Fogarty, Waterman, Fritsch (Garlett, Sicily)

with $260k in the bank I feel i've got a lot of options,
before round 1 I brought in merret to cover for Danger for the first couple of weeks to allow me to evaluate a few things. After watching the first few rounds, I realise I need to strengthen my FWD and Back lines. I could do this in a number of ways like:
1) Merrett – Danger and Naughton – Bonner
2) Merrett – Danger and Fogarty – Fisher
3) Merrett – Coniglio and Fogarty – any FWD (probably between Franklin, Heeney, Mclean and charlie curnow if I wanted to keep some cash in the bank
4) Merret – Coniglio and Naughton – any Def (most likely Kade Simpson)
5) Merret – Danger and Mills – Curnow
I'm also not too happy with Mills in my side but I feel like I need to hold him for a few more weeks to allow me to patch up a few things in other areas.
I think I should play it safe and bring in danger this week as it is only going to get harder and harder to bring him in
what are your thoughts?
thanks in advance

    GAZ · 05/04/2018 at 10:05

    options 1 buddy

    CalebCripps922 · 05/04/2018 at 10:41

    I'd say Merret to Coniglio {Who is looking like a top 10 mid} and Fogarty to Heeney. Good Luck Man.

    TheGreatBozza · 05/04/2018 at 11:38

    As good as Danger is, I'd look at option 3. You already have the big dawgs in Dusty, Titch & Ablett. FWD line could use more fire power so I'd look at Heeney

    The Ranger · 05/04/2018 at 11:39

    Option 1 for mine

    Derek · 05/04/2018 at 12:11

    none of those.

    Hold Merrett.

    team looks good. Forward line will be very thin this week. i doubt Fogarty will get named and i hear that Fritsch is struggling to be fit after getting a kick in the side on the weekend. i think he was off all the third quarter but came back on.

Derek · 05/04/2018 at 09:33

Higgins is playing. The rumours were correct

TommyC99 · 05/04/2018 at 09:33

Which set of trades should I go with?

1. Mills – curnow (via Sicily) and ZGL – Ryan
2. Mills – Luke Ryan and Keeffe – Murphy

    Sully321 · 05/04/2018 at 09:36

    I reckon Curnow will score better than ryan throughout the year, although ryan may be a little more consistent

    GAZ · 05/04/2018 at 10:04

    Luke Ryan fort me

      Derek · 05/04/2018 at 12:02

      Ryan is too sideways for me.

        TommyC99 · 05/04/2018 at 12:06

        So you would go curnow Derek? Or just hold Mills?

CJudd3Votes · 05/04/2018 at 09:45

What were we told all preseason? NO FLOGS! And I chose to ignore it and picked old Hot Head Sicily who after attending Monday's game i was going to drop even if he wasn't suspended. Got overly fired up early and it ruined his decision making process for the day, and I'm not getting sucked in by that again.
HENCE time to get a bit of a POD going Mr. Taranto, after seeing how many centre bounces you attended with no Scully, I would like to extend a formal invitation to join my forward line

    Derek · 05/04/2018 at 12:02

    its a pity Sicily isn't playing. Defenders have been doing very well against Richmond this year, especially the intercept marking type. Richmond's kicking has not been good

      Tibor · 06/04/2018 at 09:08

      Come on Derek, it's not a pity at all. There is no luck or lack of luck here. Can't question that the boy can play but we can't cop any if he wasn't a flog he'd be……. The bottom line is HE IS A FLOG. When he comes back he will still be a flog and even if he has a few good games his next flog tantrum is just around the corner and will bite when you can least afford it.

GAZ · 05/04/2018 at 10:03

Zorko out or hold

plus

Hibberd to Ryan considering the scores i think hibberd will come goo but Ryan cheap now or HOLD Hibberd

    Rick Grimes · 05/04/2018 at 10:19

    Definitely hold Zorko. Forget round 1, he's a gun. Hibberd looks like hes in different role so could be worth a trade. Personally I'm holding another week on him.

      GAZ · 05/04/2018 at 11:01

      Cheers Rick

MyDi · 05/04/2018 at 10:07

What’s best please?
Gray who is a definite keeper but $500K or Taranto @$365K but will he be a keeper?

    Rick Grimes · 05/04/2018 at 10:21

    Think you answered your own question. But by same token sometimes you have to risk it for the biscuit. Could Timmy T be this year's Oliver?

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 05/04/2018 at 11:42

      Timmy time for mine

        Derek · 05/04/2018 at 12:00

        there is a lot of love for taranto this week.

        Taranto and Bonnar are the flavors of this week

          MiDi · 05/04/2018 at 14:07

          Thanks Derek, but do YOU think Taranto,
          based on the promise he showed last year before he was injured and
          this year’s form with his additional time at centre bounces because Scully is out,,
          Is going to be a keeper or
          play safe and get Gray?

            Derek · 05/04/2018 at 15:54

            to be honest i hadn't really followed taranto. i've had my eye on SPS, looks really good but $371k is just a bit high to take a punt. Is FWD/MID.

            Taranto is almost same price and also DPP.

            big difference is their TOG. taranto is very high at around 90%. that might have been because of the Scully injury, where SPP is still in the low 70%

            I didn't take much notice of taranto because of the star studded GWS midfield.

            I'm ok for forwards. have Lobb at F5 so only one rookie of field. Only have $165k cash so can't upgrade any rookies. have no problems with my mids, will be watching both this weekend with interest.

              Northerner · 05/04/2018 at 16:02

              Likewise Derek. I think Lobb against Sinclair this week should deliver, but if he doesn’t and Taranto does, it’s still a one trade proposition for me. I had Taranto in my team with Dusty pre season, but swapped Dusty to Kelly to afford Lobb over Taranto when he was named, so probably lost out on that call. Still might prove solid in time.

                Northerner · 05/04/2018 at 16:05

                I do keep coming back to the draft year allstars game they had in the lead up to the GF where Taranto looked the clear talent out of that group. He’s been on my radar ever since.

                  The Ranger · 05/04/2018 at 16:41

                  I wrote down his name and Hoppers at the end of last season as ones to have a look at as mid-price break out players.Northerner. Still think Hopper might be even better when he gets going.

                    Derek · 05/04/2018 at 16:50

                    Hoppers will be a star. but he will need to find his place in the GWS midfield.

                    Talk that he will play this week to fill Scullys injury.

                    Northerner · 05/04/2018 at 18:23

                    I thought Hopper was mid only. Therefore doesn’t have the relevance for me at the moment. GWS sure has some talent coming through, don’t they

              Truck · 05/04/2018 at 16:21

              $365,800 Taranto ave 106 @ 1.0 PPM – DPP is handy as he could be a FWD keeper
              $356,000 SPP ave 69 @ 0.7 PPM – NOT a keeper
              $263,600 Fisher ave 101 @ 1.2 PPM – Best FWD cash-cow and potential fwd keeper

                Derek · 05/04/2018 at 16:48

                SPS = Sam Petrevski-Seton

                $371,900 ave 74 @ 0.9 PPM

                averages don't mean anything this time of year with only 2 games. i like watching the lads play, and SPS can really play.

    MiDi · 05/04/2018 at 16:40

    Thanks fellas

The Ranger · 05/04/2018 at 10:19

Thanks Post and damo.
Fyfe into Titch for me this week.

Need help community…
Got Crouch, Kreuzer, Langdon and Menegola all bothering me.
If Kreuzer plays, which of the other two would you move on and why?
I'm leaning toward Crouch – Cogs and Langdon – Ryan which means I just have to hold bloody Menegola.

    neil demons delight · 05/04/2018 at 10:51

    Hi Ranger Couch is a definite top10 and kreuz a keeper too.. If you can see your way thru I would keep both .depends how long couch is out for really Menegola must go

      The Ranger · 05/04/2018 at 11:27

      Crouch is just on that awkward spot Neil, 3wks according to the AFL injury list.
      If I'd had a good start I might look to keep him but I haven't so I think he has to go.
      Kreuzer I'll prob keep no matter what, I have English as cover so at least it's not a donut.
      Choosing between Langdon and Menegola is a tricky one…
      Menegola will lose money but if I don't pull the Langdon trade I miss out on Ryan who I think might make some fast cash.

    Captain Risky · 05/04/2018 at 11:28

    If you can keep Crouch for a week or 2, you can trade in Merret or Zorko cheap. Or you could downgrade Menegola to Ryan and save the dollars for Merret/Zorko if you wanted? Menegola for me looks like a trade first regardless.

    I'd be holding ZGL, loophole Garlett/ Fritsch or whoever else you have.

      The Ranger · 05/04/2018 at 13:05

      I did think of going Menegola to Cogs via Higgins (who I have on my mid bench) but that leaves my fwd line a bit thin with Heeney, Walters and Smith and then three rookies.
      Plus I lose the mid/fwd swing.

        Captain Risky · 05/04/2018 at 13:55

        Mclean is going ok, otherwise Taranto if you want to take the risk. Cogs would be OK too. Mid/fwd swing will be more important later, won't hurt (hopefully!) not to have one for a few weeks.

          The Ranger · 05/04/2018 at 14:16

          I just did Crouch to Cogs and Menegola to Taranto and it leaves me with 356K in the kitty.
          Very tempted by that.
          Taranto can become my F7/M9 at worst and Langdon can be looped until he comes back.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 05/04/2018 at 11:43

    I would trade the injured player unless u have ample coverage.

      The Ranger · 05/04/2018 at 13:03

      Yeah my instinct says to trade the LTI's first Trigga but with Higgins being named Langdon becomes my only non-playing rookie and that makes him more tempting to keep and loop for a few weeks until he's back.
      Plus I'm really annoyed that I put Menegola in at the last minute and it would make me feel much better to rage trade him!

CalebCripps922 · 05/04/2018 at 10:35

I am seriously considering Hibberd down to Bonner which will allow me to get Brayshaw up to Dusty in a few weeks. Don't have any other issues with my side and i need Dusty as soon as possible. Any help appreciated community!

    CJudd3Votes · 05/04/2018 at 10:52

    If you think Bonner is a keeper there is probably a bit of merit to this however if not you're just extending the time it'll take until full premo. That said getting in Dusty and Danger ASAP is also something we have to very aware of, I just think that you're better off holding for the time being as injuries could force your hand any week

    TheGreatBozza · 05/04/2018 at 11:36

    I'd only do a trade like that if the funds open up to bring in another premo. Chances are you will want to upgrade Bonner later on, unless you think he's a keeper

Rookie Dilemma · 05/04/2018 at 10:53

Hey Team,

I'm thinking of ditching L. Keefe for L. Murphy & Ryan for Giles-Langdon.

My only concern is burning two trades for two rookies? Is this overkill? I haven't used any trades so far FYI & I've pretty much sorted all the other must-gets.

Thanks!

    Derek · 05/04/2018 at 11:57

    two non-playing rookies for two playing rookies seems a nice way to make plenty of cash.

    rule #1: get the right rookies

neil demons delight · 05/04/2018 at 11:05

I kept Lambert even tho he will bleed but FLOG has to depart my team Problem occurs later when I want to trade LAMBERT.He has that 14 bye and I want one trade to a keeper forward not in R 14 Candidates are PETRACCA CURNOW HOGAN SMITH and TARANTO My choice is petracca as a forward keeper Other method is to keep FLOG and dice LAMBERT NOW Any thoughts

    The Ranger · 05/04/2018 at 11:30

    Tough one Neil but I'd move on the flog and get Petracca or Smith.
    Players will be lining up to get into Sicily now and I'll be surprised if he can handle that.

      neil demonsdelight · 05/04/2018 at 12:25

      yeah thanks mate and they will get to him Only thing is his good bye but tracca or smith are not flogs .the other things is a doughnut this week if I take sicily and that's not on for sure cheers ranger

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 05/04/2018 at 11:44

    Hogan. Pod.

      neil demonsdelight · 05/04/2018 at 12:20

      thanks mate trouble is Hogan is a junior flog but looks good gets injured quick also RANGER is probably right As i look at the forwards BUDDY TOBY MClean Billings Heeney are all top 6 and maybe smith walters or tracca cheers

Dan · 05/04/2018 at 11:07

Hi all,
First dilemma for the year…..
I have Clarke (Stk) who hasn't produced. I also have hibberd who is looking very average.
My thoughts are:
1. Trade Clarke to Bonner. This will be achieved by moving Finlayson to the midfield.
2. Trade Hibberd to Simpson.

What are your thoughts? Option 1, option 1 & 2 or other option?
Appreciate your comments.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 05/04/2018 at 11:45

    Nope unless you r starting finlayson on ground.
    He is worthy of a starting position

Mike · 05/04/2018 at 11:13

Is it crazy thinking to trade Hibberd out for Simpson?

    Lazza · 05/04/2018 at 11:49

    Nuh

deleted5925480 · 05/04/2018 at 11:34

Done!! Thrown the key Hibbo is officially out of my team. Now i have $248K in bank and 3 trades used so far. Might just hold on to Cox for a while, i can't seem to pick someone in the Ruck to replace Ryder. Witts is the only one that stands out atm, but his Rd10 by is awkward or I can just with run Cox until Witts and Ryder when he comes back and had their bye, then bring one them in. Next in my radar is NicNat and then Kreuzer when he comes back and hope his price drops.

    TheGreatBozza · 05/04/2018 at 11:35

    I think Cox could punch out 70's. Round 1 was the worst he could possibly play and he pushed out a 40 (i was expecting a 12)

      SCdonkey · 05/04/2018 at 11:40

      I think he can too, he just needs to improve on his marking. Pies looks for him everytime, if he can improve on that he'll score really well. Most of the time will be contested marks and inside 50s.

    GAZ · 05/04/2018 at 11:44

    Who did u get for hibberd

      SCdonkey · 05/04/2018 at 11:49

      Simmo, is an ideal replacement. Don't replace him for someone who you think is gonna be keeper. Just gonna be wasting trades if it doesn't turn out to be a keeper.

        Sc_Wow · 05/04/2018 at 12:16

        Worried simo might run out of legs eventually, has had an amazing start but don’t want to chase point. I agree getting hibbo out of team makes me feel much better, Lewis has taken 25 points off of hibbo. Just picking the right defender to replace him is key

          SCdonkey · 05/04/2018 at 12:24

          Not wrong there Sc_Wow getting the right replacement is the key. Simmos legs are getting old, as long he keeps doing the kick-ins, kick in to himself and a few one two out of defense along with few marks in defensive 50s he'll still average 95+ for the year. He doesn't have to run much through the guts from the half back.

            GAZ · 05/04/2018 at 12:29

            What about Luke Ryan or nah

              SCdonkey · 05/04/2018 at 12:37

              Not for me, not taking any chance for a might be a keeper for replacement. If i had the extra cash. I would pick Ryan and trade naughton out, the cash i have stashed is for culling rookies when they are ripe as well for Cox when it's time to move him on.

                Sc_Wow · 05/04/2018 at 13:13

                Luke Ryan is doing all the right things early. In the team to take marks and rebound out, has a pretty handy midfeild to kick to aswell. Risk reward with him

            Derek · 05/04/2018 at 14:03

            still think you can get him cheaper later in year, see if he is still going ok or if O'Shea has effected him

              SW Roosters XXX · 05/04/2018 at 20:29

              Hard for O'Shea to effect him when he's playing VFL

                Russty_ · 05/04/2018 at 20:46

                He wouldn't have known O'Shea was omitted when he made that comment.

    B.Bolton · 05/04/2018 at 13:17

    Cox could kick 10 against Carlton. Blues tallest defender had a role in Snow White during the off season so Coxy should have a field day. He doesn't need to mark against Carlton they're all spuds when the ball hits the deck

    Russty_ · 05/04/2018 at 20:46

    Why did you delete your account SCDonkey?

Lazza · 05/04/2018 at 11:48

Has anybody actually noticed that Bonner only scored 76 this week … similar to Hibberd.. that score has him ranked at 177th this week..and 20th of all players under $300k… . the garbage going on that he is a ‘must have’ or could be ‘a keeper’ … two more 76’s and his R1 score will count for nothing..

    Ja191 · 05/04/2018 at 11:51

    Ball wasn’t down back much. Check the other defenders scores. This won’t always be the case

    Derek · 05/04/2018 at 11:54

    i did some maths in an earlier post and showed that if bonnar scored 72 for the next 3 weeks, and naughton scored 50 for the next 3 weeks, the difference in cash would only be about $45k.

    Bonnars BE will be about 78 and naughtons about 42.

    the hope is that he will score another 100+

    The reason everyone is getting excited is their current BE. Bonnar's BE includes his 110 from round 1 and Naughtons includes his 25 from round 1. Next week both those numbers disappear from the BE and boy oh boy the BE will look alot different next week.

      Dave G · 05/04/2018 at 12:57

      Yes BUT Bonner's score output potential is much higher and the SCG is a small ground, he didn't get as much chance to use space to rebound. Power have the lions this week and at home. Expect 90-100 from Bonner this week.

        pod · 05/04/2018 at 13:48

        Finally some sensible feedback, well said Dave.

        Derek · 05/04/2018 at 14:58

        he certainly has the ability to score 100 this week.

        On SC Gold they project he will score 86. if he continues to score 86's over the next 3 weeks his price would have gone up $114k with BE of 29.

        you would take 86 each week.

        SC Gold projects Naughton will score 37's. i think he will do better, there score factors in the 25 first round in a small sample. If he scores 50 each week, he will increase in price by $38k with a BE of 23

        price difference in three weeks of $76k. is that worth a trade?

          Defying_Madness · 05/04/2018 at 16:32

          If you are forced to field one of them at D6 I think it is worth the trade for sure, maybe not otherwise

      The Grout · 05/04/2018 at 13:59

      Oh well Derek. It is obvious you haven’t got Bonner.
      I selected Bonner before round 1 based on last year’s games and this year’s practice matches.
      Now it looks like I’m stuck with him!!!

        Valens_FC · 05/04/2018 at 14:46

        Derek has him! Think the point he is making is that starting with him – good move. Trading for him now, probably not unless you think hold for the season. Cash generation argument not really there especially as it will cost two trades.

        Derek · 05/04/2018 at 14:47

        nice. For those who have him, well done. he will be good.

        My comments were more directed to people who don't have him and were thinking of getting him now just for the cash

MRmoMAN · 05/04/2018 at 12:36

Who would you pick out of hurn, shaw or ryan?? Leaning towards hurn by would love everyones input. Cheers MO

    MRmoMAN · 05/04/2018 at 12:39

    Hurn never avg 95+ has me worried though..

dontblushbaby · 05/04/2018 at 12:47

I don't have – Bonner & Murphy or any injuries
I do have – Mills,Naughton and 30 trades
Unless anything serious changes at selection I won't be trading, too many times over the years I've made early trades when I still have players on the field only to be burnt,just my gut feeling

    Derek · 05/04/2018 at 12:53

    All looking good. You’ve probably got $600k in the bank as well.

      dontblushbaby · 05/04/2018 at 13:03

      Have 61k ,scored 2358 last week, just trying a different approach, eg Mills role might change as the Swans need to make some changes with their set up

        Derek · 05/04/2018 at 14:01

        my first reaction was to trade Mills to Simpson.

        I'll hold him and see what he can do. lots of moving parts at the Swans with hannaberry coming back, newman might play this week.

        getting Simpson feels a bit like chasing points, should be looking at bringing in premiums at fallen prices.

The underdogs · 05/04/2018 at 12:54

Option 1:
Hibberd to savage
Rayner to taranto
25k left
Option 2:
Hibbers to simpson
Rayner to giles-langdon
237k left

    Sc_Wow · 05/04/2018 at 13:10

    Giles Langdon is injured

      The underdogs · 05/04/2018 at 13:33

      Who else is better option then i have 122k in the bank

        MRmoMAN · 05/04/2018 at 15:13

        maybe higgins making his debut this weekend

Fitzy · 05/04/2018 at 13:12

We sitting tight on Langdon? He will miss 4 but will walk go into the side. Or we have to move him on and burn a trade. I could go to ryan. But worried I’d need ZGL back down the track

    seen_burns · 05/04/2018 at 13:50

    Might be trading him for Ryan, but still unsure.

    Geronimo · 05/04/2018 at 13:54

    I’m keeping him.

    Derek · 05/04/2018 at 13:58

    he is a tough fella. apparently he broke his hand in the first quarter and played the whole game

    cal_houn12 · 05/04/2018 at 14:00

    Going to keep him for a week and look to trading to o'connor next week if he performs and holds his spot, but will watch closely

    NoLanguage · 05/04/2018 at 16:52

    I'm going to Ryan. No point having a 117k rookie on your bench for month

    Northerner · 05/04/2018 at 18:09

    Cash generation this time of year is too important. You can’t afford a dead bench space if for example you don’t have Ryan. Only scenario would be if you currently don’t have a floating donut, then making him that until he’s back could be an option.

B.Bolton · 05/04/2018 at 13:29

The little fish is sneaking through the net with supercoaches.
He's filling the Gibbs midfield role kids and he's a 263k FWD in supercoach! Scores of 93 and 110 in teams that were thrashed. Touted during his TAC days as the 'best from the west' (same year as SPP) but slipped in the draft due to an injury.
Massive cash generation, tipped rise by more than $50k this week if he scores 69 so if he tons up again he'll make more in 1-week than some will make for the year.

    Truck · 05/04/2018 at 16:05

    Yeah Bolts he looks to be a safer bet than any rookie and, is a similar price but probably a higher ceiling and better JS than Bonner. He was a standout in his TAC year dominating clearances against the best in the country but he was under 70kg and the injury turned a few off. I was looking at Hogan as F5 but I reckon Fisher will ave 90-105 and he's 120k cheaper

Mark · 05/04/2018 at 13:35

Charlie Curnow or Luke Ryan?

Clarky · 05/04/2018 at 13:37

Should we be holding or trading Mills? Really tossing up. Only got 30k in the bank tho

    Derek · 05/04/2018 at 14:19

    i've been tossing up as well. Decided to keep him and wait for the premiums to get cheaper.

Mystic Mac · 05/04/2018 at 13:57

Any news on Mitch Duncan's hamstring?

cal_houn12 · 05/04/2018 at 13:59

Hate the idea of a sideways trade but leaning towards getting rid of beams, I have 190k spare after offloading kreuzer last minute and am also looking at upgrading naughton to bonner
Should I:
a) Keep beams
b) Trade to dusty and spend my bank
c) Trade to cripps/whitfield and save my money for another upgrade later?

    Derek · 05/04/2018 at 14:18

    do you know why Beams is scoring poorly?

      cal_houn12 · 05/04/2018 at 14:39

      Disposal efficiency has been poor, 50% on the weekend and seems a bit under done. Will probably come good later but with the start I've had can't afford to wait

    The Ranger · 05/04/2018 at 14:47

    I hate sideways trading too Cal but if you're going to do corrective trades then IMO it has to be before the price changes kick in.
    Cripps, Whitfield or Cogs will all give you similar to Beams and allow you to keep some bank.
    Check your bye structure too.

Northerner · 05/04/2018 at 14:10

Cripps is value. Danger is points, but paying overs. Neither bad calls.

Bonner [email protected] · 05/04/2018 at 15:27

Hello Community,

Is it worth trading Naughton to Bonner & leaving Keefe as donut on bench? Or upgrading Keefe to Bonner to ensure there's cover? (Have cash to do this)

Will Bonner be a main-stay in the side? Is he even worth it?

Cheers fam!

SirSamuel016 · 05/04/2018 at 15:46

G'day Community,

Think I might need to make a couple of corrective trades this week in regards to rookies. With 27k in the bank and 30 trades left, the trades I'm considering making are:
– Naughton to O'Connor
– Dow to Gowers (swinging Garlett into the Midfield to do so).
Any thoughts on this?

As for Captain, I'm leaning towards Mitchell or Dangerfield. Mitchell has had the C these first two weeks for me and hasn't let me down yet so I might keep it on him.

    INPieman · 05/04/2018 at 16:40

    I think your trading 2 rookies with JS to 2 without. Perhaps wait & have a look at Jack Higgins who will debut this week

      SirSamuel016 · 05/04/2018 at 16:59

      Yeah, fair call INP. I suppose I was focusing too much on cash generation haha and making a trade for the sake of making one. I'd already settled on holding Sandilands and Sicily so it was just whether or not to make a trade elsewhere. Thanks for the suggestion!

        INPieman · 05/04/2018 at 17:17

        No worries. Only need a decent game for Dow & Naughton to make some money. LDU did it last week & relieved his owners

          Northerner · 05/04/2018 at 17:57

          Some have still had LDU as a trade out target. Madness. That 77 will deliver cash and his improvement week to week has been clear – even if you include the JLT games. They are going to keep playing him and a mid season string of 80s from him looks probable IMO.

          I don’t have him.

          I have a similar view on Venables. His game on the weekend was solid. He is only a fraction away from hitting those handball targets rather than coughing it up with a Clanger or being caught holding the ball. Once he fixes that he’ll score well and be entrenched for significant minutes in the Eagles midfield. Try and tell me they’ll keep playing that crab Redden or even Masten when they have the option of putting experience into Venables. He’s their future.

Stupid Coach · 05/04/2018 at 16:57

Greetings community. Great work with the captaincy options and cheat sheet. I have 30 trades and 83k in the bank. Generally happy with my team except for a couple of POD – Mc Grath (defence) and Townsend (Forward) that are not performing as well as expected. Both have high BE and are likely to lose cash. Should I perserve with them. Which one should I trade. I also want to bring in either Dusty or titch (yes, should have both been in my team from the start) so thinking of bringing one of them in for Merrett or Zorko. Team is:

B: Laird, Savage, Ryan, McGrath, Deedee, Finlayson, S Murray, Naughton
Mid: Danger, Kelly, Zorro, Merrett, Parker, Cogniglio, Brayshaw, T Kelly, J Garlett.
Ruck: Gawn, Bank, Olongo
Fwd: Buddy, Smith, Petracca, Townsend, L Ryan, ZGL, Gowers

Any thoughts on which trades to make are much appreciated.

    INPieman · 05/04/2018 at 17:28

    McGrath to Bonner & Townsend to Christensen banks money & gives you 2 players going up in price

      Stupid Coach · 05/04/2018 at 21:46

      Thanks INPieman. Sound advice. Was thinking about McGrath to Bonner but the majority of advice I have read seems to say stay clear of him unless you already started with him. I really want to bring in titch or martin for Merett so that means I need to keep McGrath or Townsend. Thoughts on Charlie Cameron (BL) instead of Christensen.

Mr.Brightside · 05/04/2018 at 17:00

Has anyone heard that Devin ’Might’ be an out for this week ? A Bombrr supporter just told me but doesn’t know what the injury is

    INPieman · 05/04/2018 at 17:29

    I know he & Hurley went for scans. Cant find anything on why

      Derek · 05/04/2018 at 17:31

      i read that Hurley just ran a few laps at training and devon did light work

pod · 05/04/2018 at 17:00

Dangerfield only 17% of teams? wtf? If SC predictions are around the mark, and he stays fit, you aren't going to see him for less than $680k odd and that's not till round 11 vs Suns. Round 5-7 are when some punters on this site are hoping to trade him in, for low $700k. And some of the predictions are imo unders. Good luck to those who don't have him yet.

    Derek · 05/04/2018 at 17:28

    that is pretty amazing only 17%. all through the pre-season he was only in the low 20-25%, so not that many jumped off him. alot had already made up their minds he was too expensive, unsure of his role in the team, especially if he plays forward alot.

    i guess the hope for non-owners is he has ONE bad game! that stays in his average for 3 weeks. hits his price hard.

    I was one of them who jumped off him at the last minute and went with Dusty instead. so far so good, 108 pts ahead and still have the $165k in the bank. more luck than anything.

    i had to watch the cats vs hawks game from behind the lounge hoping danger wouldn't make me pay. i can't do that every week and the sooner he is in the bunnies team the better. My backup plan was i had the cash to go straight to danger if there were any injuries to any of my premiums, touch wood, i have missed that so far but it is still one of my options if someone goes down like crouch did.

    looking at the draw. the cats have a few tough games weeks 5-7 (port, Syd & GWS) followed by Col, Ess, Car, Suns, Norf. Ideally he comes in round 8 when his price is expected to be $706k, just in time for the easier games.

    the culling of the cows should have started by round 5, the warchest should be ready for danger. it is still another 6 weeks of high danger alert.

      pod · 05/04/2018 at 17:46

      Was a good move grabbing Dusty, he has smashed it. He's gone to Danger level as has Titch just wondering if they can keep it going. Had a chuckle picturing you behind the lounge, Hawks v Cats always a ripper game.

      I don't think Scotty will persist with keeping Danger in fwd line unless resting him so should see some huge scores in the coming weeks.

        Derek · 05/04/2018 at 18:10

        as a hawks fan, i was rolled up in the rug behind the lounge watching it

      Russty_ · 05/04/2018 at 17:47

      I started with Danger but now Dusty is my Danger other guys left out, now I need to get Dusty in but don't have the funds.

        JohnDJ59 · 05/04/2018 at 17:59

        Hey Russty,I don't have either but not that worried,Titch & Clarry should go alright for me till I get Danger & Dusty in, having said that,I'm giving Bont one more week,if he gets under 100 will be trading him out for either Danger or Dusty next week,depending on how they both go,will just have enough funds to do the Bont to Danger trade if I wish.

          Russty_ · 05/04/2018 at 20:48

          Hey John, I'd be looking to get one or the other in pretty soon though…too much hurt without them.

          Sc_Wow · 05/04/2018 at 20:48

          I’ve got danger dusty tich and Oliver

            SW Roosters XXX · 05/04/2018 at 22:06

            Rank is??

              Sc_Wow · 05/04/2018 at 22:42

              Top 2% atm top 1% score last week, and I’m sure that will continue having the big 3

      INPieman · 05/04/2018 at 17:53

      I like the long term strategy Derek. The problem is bush fires & problems popping up when you just don't need them. In the end I decided Danger wasn't a problem I wanted to have when I might & probably will want to be doing other things. Getting a player in at 650+ is very hard. Those are the sort of players that if you don't have them they leave you tearing your hair out. Trying to get 1 in means missing out on doing 2 upgrades so you get a player in who is killing you. Locking away Danger Dusty & Titch early I think is very important & first priority. Those 3 boys have played 5 games collectively for the season. The Av score from them is 148.8 points per game so far. They won't keep that up. But that's what they are capable of

        Derek · 05/04/2018 at 18:13

        i think you have said before, you can't have them all.

        Started with: Dusty, TMitch, Kelly, Oliver, Fyfe, Parker, TKelly & Holman in the guts.

        waiting with my fire extinguisher at the ready

          INPieman · 05/04/2018 at 18:17

          You need to tell Holman to pull his socks up. Only one of your squad who didn't ton up!

      Mongoose · 05/04/2018 at 19:19

      So glad I have him as he is Captain nearly every week. And, if he isn’t captain he still pumps out a good SC score. And he will get better. Good luck to those trying to get the best player in the AFL at a cheaper price.

      Daniel Z · 06/04/2018 at 11:12

      i guess the hope for non-owners is he has ONE bad game! that stays in his average for 3 weeks. hits his price hard.

      – Problem with this is that a bad game for Danger is still around the 100 mark. So while he'll go down, I don't think it will be much outside the regular premium price drop that occurs after price changes start.

      – Dusty was the right move if you went no Danger; so far, so good.

    Florentino · 05/04/2018 at 19:28

    Anyone who didn’t start with the best three players in the AFL – Danger, Dusty and Titch are so far behind the 8 ball it isn’t funny. If you included Oliver you got the quadrella.

      pod · 05/04/2018 at 20:01

      Think you'll find a lot of the leaders of SC haven't got Danger yet. See how that pans out, might see a rush to get him in over next few weeks.

Will · 05/04/2018 at 17:01

Community I'm getting rid of Hibberd,

Should I, A: Hibberd to Bonner and Brayshaw to McLean
or B: Hibberd to Simpson

Cheers

    Northerner · 05/04/2018 at 18:07

    Brayshaw will make money, so if you must, corrective trade to Simmo is way to go. Hibberd could pump out 130 this week and Simmo an 80. 3 week rolling averages would look very different. However I get the concern around role. I suspect at some stage he’ll be back scoring again and we’ll all be looking at getting him in.

      Will · 05/04/2018 at 18:33

      Ok cheers mate

juddy · 05/04/2018 at 17:16

lambert to:
A) L.ryan
B) Taranto
C) Hold
D)hold lambert trade lobb instead

FWDS: Heeney, Lambert**, Mclean, Sicily, Smith, Lobb (fritsch ZGL)

cheers guys

    Northerner · 05/04/2018 at 18:03

    Lobb is up against Sinclair. If he fails this week he has no excuses. But definitely keep for now.

    I’ve concerns on Lambert. As to whether it’s Ryan or Taranto will depend on your forward structure. If you can say put Fritsch on your field for Lambert and then get Ryan, that’s what I’d do. If you are running Ryan on your field, I’d suggest go Taranto if you think he’s top 15 forwards or alternatively go for a player who will rise in price, but is safer on field than Ryan, such as Christensen or Fisher.

    Given your scenario, go with Ryan and field Fritsch.

      dazzler · 05/04/2018 at 18:11

      L.Ryans JS and cash rise is a real winner and the 350k u bank is handy no doubt if u dont have say danger.
      If u think taranto is a top 8 fwd come seasons end grab him though. if not go liam ryan

    nathan · 05/04/2018 at 18:04

    A) huge cash save & still only 1 rookie on field (play fritsch) ryan will get a good cash generation and solid JS

juddy · 05/04/2018 at 17:25

I am deadset against trading premiums usually but hibberd has an obvious change of role now an has lost those important kick ins.
He is going to be the 2017 heater who i held all year watched him leak cash and hated my self all post season for it.
So i do not want to make the mistake two years straight
Can I be forgiven and right for looking to offload him to a Shaw or Simpson??

thoughts.

    Northerner · 05/04/2018 at 17:49

    IMO pre rd 3 trading is the only week where exceptions to the don’t trade your premium rule are tolerated. You go from a player losing cash to one on the rise. Just gives your side added flexibility. But I’d only entertain the concept, certainly not recommending it.

      Mike · 05/04/2018 at 17:57

      HIBBERDS SHIT . wont be top 6 or 10 defenders. Trade him . Dont waste your time hangi g on to him and praying when he continues to push out 70s . I dont understand when ppl say thay will pick him up later when he is cheap . If he is scoring 70s and 80s hes not a premium. The whole idea of supercoach is to have a team of premiums not players scoring 70 , 80

        juddy · 05/04/2018 at 18:00

        simpson the obvious solution but is it the right answer…
        Could i go the 2017 burn man shaw?
        Or a Luke Ryan even.

          INPieman · 05/04/2018 at 18:07

          If Luke Ryan suits your byes then he's looking great. I have too many round 14 players. Otherwise I'd get him in in a heartbeat for Hibberd. Simmo & Shaw looking better than last year

            Northerner · 05/04/2018 at 18:13

            Agreed. Got a SC scoring profile that has Docherty characteristics. Good hands. Doesn’t make clangers. Kicks and hits targets. Lots of rebound 50s. Think he’s a chance to go another level again this year

          Lazza · 05/04/2018 at 19:22

          I had Ryan to start .. was him vs Sicily .. have huge Hibberd concerns too ….. right now I’m considering upgrading to Simpson even though he is cheaper 🙂 but which would I do right now if I didn’t have Ryan?
          Probably Simmo … has a long premo history … which Hibberd doesn’t.. Ryan may this year, but not a premo YET.

Goanna · 05/04/2018 at 18:23

I’ll pick up Hibberd after his bye when h3 is nice and cheap.

Defying_Madness · 05/04/2018 at 18:27

Fogarty omitted as people predicted. In other news looks like Mirra might get a game. Greene not playing again as well

    INPieman · 05/04/2018 at 18:46

    No Sicily or Greene. Round 3 will now be known as No Flogs round

      Finnius · 05/04/2018 at 19:00

      Looking at a doughnut in the fwd line if I don't trade one of them.

        INPieman · 05/04/2018 at 19:12

        Probably more sensible to move bad Toby on. Not much info on his injury & high price, Sicily is a suspension

Morzaaa · 05/04/2018 at 18:30

Whats the go with Duncan? Can't find any info on him besides not being picked for the weekend.

    Daniel Z · 06/04/2018 at 11:27

    Mitch Duncan? Was a late out last week due to hamstring tightness, if I recall correctly.

Harry · 05/04/2018 at 18:33

Having a feeling Armo will get more midfield time after all the omissions .
What does the community think?

    The underdogs · 05/04/2018 at 19:00

    I was going to trade him then i saw there changes and i have kept him

Andrew · 05/04/2018 at 18:40

I don’t usually sideways trade so early in the season but Bont isn’t filling me with any great confidence don’t think he’ll be a top 10 mid, Cripps a better option?

    The underdogs · 05/04/2018 at 18:59

    Cripps is just going to keep get better i have him

Northerner · 05/04/2018 at 18:42

Fisher named on ball for tomorrow night’s game. Interesting. Will suck a few more in. Question is will it be a good trade in or a bad one. If I had a failing mid pricer such as a Lambert type I’d be interested.

Blaknight · 05/04/2018 at 18:46

Ahh what to do community what to do.

I've had to trade Crouch for Martin. Now Greene has not been selected. I've also got Sicily. Do I hold Greene or trade him?

Thinking Green to on of Menzel / Curnow / Smith / Lynch.

What should I do.

GAZ · 05/04/2018 at 18:55

Hibberd Hold or not

John · 05/04/2018 at 18:58

Do we let go of hibberd or hold him i just see him going backwards from here

Finnius · 05/04/2018 at 18:59

ABOUT HIBBERD – Saw this on another site and found it interesting.

Been looking at the JLT games and in the first game against North he scored 121 but in the next 3 games he went 65, 74, 72
That first North game included Lewis, Lever and Vince and there was only 5 behinds from North that game.
Looking at the stats He has gone 27,23,20,20 disposals with 3 tackles over 4 games. His game against Geelong he had 3 contested possessions but against Brisbane he had 7 but went at 65% efficiency. He is getting about 4 rebound 50s a game.
Comparing to his last 4 games last year he got 30,22,23,22 disposals but more were kicks. He also had 10 tackles in the 4 game with 0 in his final game. He had scores of 103,107,126,67. He was getting more rebound 50s and had 21 marks compared to 12 in total this year. He was also getting more contested possessions.
That 67 he had 6 clangers 7cp 15up 0 tackles.

So i feel it isnt the Kick ins that are making him lose points. I feel he may be down 1 or 2 possessions a game but he is really lacking in his contested possessions and marks.

Also look at the scoring he did last year, 18 games 8 games 110+, 6 games below 85, 3 were below 70. The 4 other games was 90,91,103,107. It shows he is an inconsistent scorer.

He went on a run of games after the bye of 83,82,91,110,64 then went 124,140,81,103,107,126. He seems to play better against the better teams as he scored from 8 games all above 90 and 5 were 110+ his other 3 110+ games came against North,GC and Brisbane.
Looking at these i feel i will keep him as i dont want to run out of trades like i always do

    Maverick_ · 05/04/2018 at 19:04

    Fantastic find Finnius!
    can already hear the hundreds of clicks on the 'reverse changes' button.
    Im still umm-ing and arghhh-ing on what to do.
    I think he will come good though, it's more a question of WHEN not IF.
    cheers finnius

    Neverweaken · 05/04/2018 at 19:11

    how does he score with or without TMac?

    Jock · 05/04/2018 at 21:53

    I will get him cheaply in 3-4 weeks. Can play.

    Nice work Finn…lots of research has gone into your findings, I don't have him but I'm sure it will benefit those that do.

Mike · 05/04/2018 at 19:18

Hibbered wont be classified a premo def at seasons end . Trade him

Joe T · 05/04/2018 at 19:22

Great write up as usual, very interested to see if McLean can keep this up with the Dogs playing so poorly.

Got 2 trade options this week:
1. Crouch > Premo MID (means I miss out on Liam Ryan from Eagles)
2. Crouch > Liam Ryan via DPP (get Ryan's rise but lose a premo and will have to upgrade Dow to a MID premo next week)

My issue with Option 1 is I'm not exactly set on what premo MID I want, I'd rather bring in a POD because that's what Crouch was in my team but the only mids that appeal to me are Cripps and Dusty (both high ownership), Danger (overpriced at the moment) and Gibbs (really like him as a smokie POD but 2 games is a small sample size). Any other PODS that are worth looking at?

Option 2 obviously gives me another week to assess with a stack of cash in the bank, but means I'm giving up 50-60 points at best this week.

Cheers in advance.

    Maverick_ · 05/04/2018 at 19:28

    I like Gibbs. your keeping a rd14 bye player if that suits your structure and banking 40k.
    Bryce looks at home in the adelaide outfit a nice POD.
    Don't go down to ryan from crouch his price rise isn't that important he may stink it up with a 30 this w/e and you will be kicking yaself.

      Joe T · 05/04/2018 at 20:39

      Yeah I'm leaning towards going with a premo now. Though I've just seen that J. Selwood is the same price as Gibbs and might be a tastier option.

      So either get Danger to get a perma captain choice or save 180k and go for Selwood?

        Sc_Wow · 05/04/2018 at 20:50

        Get danger or dusty. They will be top 2

    Daniel Z · 06/04/2018 at 11:22

    A POD is only a benefit if they are scoring higher than everyone else.

    Not having Dusty or Danger puts you at a disadvantage because every round, they will outscore your POD by 10-20 points (or more). Look for the PODs later, they will be available.

    murray · 06/04/2018 at 11:54

    you could look at POD in McCrae or Wines

    redherringfc · 06/04/2018 at 13:48

    If you have the money for Danger get him immediately.

    If you don’t have enough for Danger then get Dusty.

    Try to work out who the best 8 mids are and fill your midfield with them. Good value players end up costing trades or finals.

    I love a good POD, such as when you have Taranto and I have Danger.

    Joe T · 06/04/2018 at 18:21

    Cheers guys, locked and loaded with Danger

Caleb · 05/04/2018 at 19:35

Luke Ryan’s very SC friendly. Freo look for him.
Kicks 90% of the time, intercept marks ALOT, elite DE% and tackles.
Hibberd >> L.Ryan

Hibbo just isn’t cuttin it

Adam · 05/04/2018 at 19:39

Lookn at downgrading hibbo to savage or Hurn

    Adam · 05/04/2018 at 20:49

    Hibberd to Savage or Hurn ?

    Defying_Madness · 05/04/2018 at 21:08

    I don't mind trading out Hibbo but both of those picks are bad imo

      Adam · 05/04/2018 at 21:24

      What about Ryan ?

        Russty_ · 05/04/2018 at 22:01

        Yeah Ryan's a good choice, Savage is a spud, or will be soon.

          Maverick_ · 05/04/2018 at 22:32

          i wanna go hibberd to ryan but struggling to confirm it. I just think hibberd will punish us for doing so with a few 100s+.

Sammy_14 · 05/04/2018 at 19:44

Help would be greatly appreciated:

Weak forward with Toby Greene out and weak rookies but thinking about whether i should go Bonner or Zac Fisher. Bonner only strengthens my strong backline due to stronger rookies and requires one trade – Naughton to Bonner or use two trades to get fisher and get stronger forward line – Naughton to Murphy & Garlett to Fisher?

    Multi_ · 05/04/2018 at 22:00

    Hold. Basically a trade is worth 150k minimum so Bonner would have to increase in value that amount more than Naughton at least. Bonner we have seen 1 good game out of

Matho · 05/04/2018 at 19:45

How does Dow keep getting a game? He was voted by the AFL captains as the rookie who had the best chance of doing well but to date his two performances have been underwhelming.
Surely the most expensive rookie is on his last chance. If he can survive another two games, he may be a good trade to Higgins.

    dontblushbaby · 05/04/2018 at 21:45

    One good score is all he needs and it might be tomorrow night, remember he is playing for Carlton ,be patient, I am

      Matho · 05/04/2018 at 21:47

      Fair enough.

Tommo · 05/04/2018 at 20:25

Rayner and Dow/LDU/Naughton to Liam Ryan and Bonner??

Trade or Hold?

    Multi_ · 05/04/2018 at 21:56

    Hold

    Multi_ · 05/04/2018 at 21:56

    Next year don’t put that many high priced rookies in though

    Finnius · 05/04/2018 at 22:06

    Must trade Rayner to Liam Ryan. You will make at least 200k from that trade so definitely worth it.

Jam · 05/04/2018 at 21:38

Only way to get liam ryan is by trading out Coffield who is named, sending sicily back and bringin in ryan.

Problem is it means i have to field 2 forward rookies and the sicily is stuck down back.

other forward rookies are Fritsch, Garlett and Stephenson all about to make price jumps.

Is Ryan's price hike worth it?

    dontblushbaby · 05/04/2018 at 21:43

    Hold Jam,a waste of a trade, if you didn't start with him suggest you don't chase points , be confident with who selected , only trade this early if you have injuries imo

      Jam · 05/04/2018 at 22:39

      Agree, but if ryan pumps out another high score that price rise is going to be huge! It does mess my structure big time though.

        redherringfc · 05/04/2018 at 22:52

        Didn’t he only get 30 something in round 1? can’t see him consistently scoring hundreds.

        Maverick_ · 05/04/2018 at 22:55

        I'm going Lambert to Ryan his JS is rock solid and has a low BE.
        But more importantly it fits my structure i have Lobb F6 so doing that freed up 350k & fritsch F6 which 95% of teams have min. 1 rookie onfield anyway. But wouldnt have done this if it meant having to field rookies at F5&6.
        so basically structure is more important than chasing a few dollars. coffield was #8 pick and looked comfortable enough in JLT so he can play he may end up being a better cash cow than ryan? Like Dontblushbaby said back in who u selected. HOLD mate.

JJJ · 05/04/2018 at 21:39

Have Tabener, he won't lose me money, will gain me some. But, do i
1. go down to Christensen
2. Sideways to tarranto
3. Toby Mclean
4. Hold ( i think Tabs could avg 90)

    JJJ · 05/04/2018 at 21:43

    I have 220k in the bank so could go to a full premo too, but i traded out Kreuzer and don't have danger so feeling like a value selection is the way to go. Have hit 2300's both weeks so scoring well.

      Multi_ · 05/04/2018 at 21:55

      Put a keeper in what amount do you have to spend?

        JJJ · 05/04/2018 at 22:43

        547K but i think now is the time to make money, anything could happen to a keeper between now and when i really need them. I think cash generation or value picks is the way to go thus the risk with Tabener. I don't have L ryan though so I could downgrade. just seems a waste to trade someone not in the red.

    Russty_ · 05/04/2018 at 21:59

    If you want to make some big bank this week you could go from Taberner to Higgins…big risk though, but then again, so was Taberner.

Porpoise · 05/04/2018 at 21:49

The footy show tonight is the most enjoyable to watch for ages. Well done Eddie and Co.

    Multi_ · 05/04/2018 at 21:53

    I agree Porp good to see some young players on the panel to

    Mambo# · 05/04/2018 at 22:02

    Yes Porpiose. I am enjoying it more than normal. One reason is the absence of one of my favourite players. The mighty Dayne Swan. I cannot understand him. He mumbles, talks too fast, doesn’t seem confident. On the other hand, Fev, who I thought was a dill is quite articulate.

      Daniel Z · 06/04/2018 at 11:18

      I got to meet Fev after a Blues training session when I was in Melbourne in 2008. Stand up bloke, a teammate of mine asked if he could trade Fev for his practice jumper (for one of our Canada guernseys) and Fev was all over it.

Alby · 05/04/2018 at 22:24

Any danger of Simpson dropping points when Docherty comes back? Toying with idea of bringing him in for Hibberd.

    Russty_ · 05/04/2018 at 22:26

    You and 1879 other people…Docherty won't be back this season.

      Maverick_ · 05/04/2018 at 22:29

      docherty will be lucky to break back into the best 22 with simpson playing like this alby

        Alby · 05/04/2018 at 22:46

        Makes sense – big tick for Simpson. Still hate the idea of the sideways trade though.

          Maverick_ · 05/04/2018 at 22:58

          heath shaw?
          he is as proven as simpson and looks a good selection again this year. will both score similar come seasons end but 60k cheaper

            JuddWarneloveChild · 06/04/2018 at 10:13

            Agree w Maverick on this one and that's despite not believing Carlton would risk bringing Doch back this season. Not only is Shaw cheaper, he's averaged over 100 six times in his career VS Simpson just once.

Caleb · 05/04/2018 at 23:36

If L.Fogarty survives the extended bench this weekend whose the best value rookie to grab?

Ryan or Fogarty?

    HammerTime · 06/04/2018 at 00:26

    ryan

Caleb · 05/04/2018 at 23:39

Isn’t hibberd going to be a fantastic pod when everybody jumps off and he pumps out back to back to back 100s. Need to keep the faith in him & hold ya trades. He will finish a premium.

    Daniel Z · 06/04/2018 at 11:09

    Pretty sure a few said that about Heath Shaw last year too, so…

sean · 06/04/2018 at 05:15

I have my forward line set
with

buddy,t. mcclean, d smith, christiansen, fritsch, fogarty with toby greene and langdon on my bench. i have 30 trades and 324K in the bank. i know giles-langdon is out for four week but not sure on toby. is it worth it to bring in liam ryan or should i wait it out?

    Northerner · 06/04/2018 at 06:29

    I think you need to bring in Ryan for Langdon. I’d also be looking at Fogarty to Higgins when he’s on the bubble. Cash generation this time of year is key.

      Sean · 06/04/2018 at 07:13

      I will probably bring higgins in later. i think i'll hold toby for now and dump langdon for ryan.

    JuddWarneloveChild · 06/04/2018 at 09:44

    Ryan looks like the safest of the forward rookies but if you already had him and were looking for another option, albeit more expensive Todd Marshall from Port looks to have good js. You could always wait too see what Higgins or Coffield (via swinging a mid/fwrd if you have one sitting in the midfield) look like as well. Regardless, think we eed to move Langdon out as it's so early in the game and cash generation is king

Claire · 06/04/2018 at 07:55

Derek or someone who knows and not a learner like me.
What is the value of a trade? Is it worth trading Dow for Barry who looks like he is going to make some decent dosh?

    JuddWarneloveChild · 06/04/2018 at 10:06

    At this early stage of the game you want to maximise cashola generation so it's not at all a bad idea to burn a trade on an expensive rookie whose under performing. Then again look at LDU, he scored just 25 in R1 but pumped out a 77 in R2, so you'd be kicking yourself if Dow did similar this week or soon. I'm presuming you've got all the must have rookies and all are playing save for say Langdon and Olango. If you also had Brayshaw I'd probably axe Dow whose BE is 33 and forecast to go up just $3k vs Barry BE -37 and forecast to go up $40K. You do have the luxury of waiting another week or two and seeing how Coffield and Higgins go, after all Barry has only scored a 44 and 62.

murray · 06/04/2018 at 12:17

what is everyone doing with M Crouch, hold or sell?

adam · 06/04/2018 at 12:55

Rightio guys I’ve done it
Hibberd to Ryan
Bell to Westhoff
109k in kitty

Tiger · 06/04/2018 at 12:58

Hi community, long time reader who rarely posts but in need of some advice. Playing for league win which began round 2 with a win. Fwd line my issue. Heaney, Walters,D.Smith, Garlett, Frits, Ryan, Rayner& Fogarty.374k in bank. As Rayner not looking to make money any time soon, need to flick him, but who? Looking at Gowers from dogs and know nothing about him and not sure about his job security? Also thinking of fisher as he I saw him in a jlt game and thought gee he has built himself up and improved, so fast. Noticed he is named on the ball and this could be a changing of the guard as Gibbs is gone and Murphy I think is slowly being moved out of the midfield.I have used 2 trades already due to libba and tom bell. So my question is go for one of the above or other rookies or spend the money and buy a premo that way only 1 trade but no bank or rookie, have extra cash but needing 2 trade again later.

    redherringfc · 06/04/2018 at 13:38

    Will your money get you Buddy?

    That’s what I’d do. Or take your pick of whoever you can afford.

      Tiger · 06/04/2018 at 14:28

      Yes but leaves me only 36 k in the bank. Must admit I do favour trading Rayner down that way it's a trade that at least gives me extra cash and hopefully that rookie I pick keeps his spot for awhile makes me more cash but just feel uneasy with the rookies available with their job security. Thanks for your advice.

        redherringfc · 06/04/2018 at 15:30

        If you get Buddy this week, Fritsch or Ryan go to your bench. Buddy should get 100, could get 150. You may get 60 to 80 out of either of the other 2 (wc aren’t playing the dogs this week).

        If you put the premium in it’s one less rookie to be worried about. Sit back, watch the points roll in and then cash in your rookies when they are ripe.

          Tiger · 06/04/2018 at 18:10

          Thanks for your thoughts, Cheers

Saalih631 · 06/04/2018 at 16:20

267k and 29 trades.

DEF: laird, hibberd, houli, doedee, murray, finlayson (o'shea, ballenden)
MID: Martin, mitchell, kelly, fyfe, cripps, whitfield, kelly, holman (brayshaw, garlett, Brodie)
RUC: Gawn, Naitanui (lavender)
FWD: heeney, mclean, smith, higgins, ryan, fritsch (keeffe, rioli)

I want to get my rookies right so im thinking either ballenden or keeffe to lachlan murphy and potentially the other one to either zac fisher or riley bonner (via finalyson and garlett dpp). thoughts?

Josh · 07/04/2018 at 00:28

Planning on trading out crouch and bell for coniglio and either devon smith or taranto, or any other forward
Currently have heeney, billings, mclean, bell, fritsch, ryan, (garlett, langdon) up forward
What is the best option to take here?
