Round 7 SuperCoach Panic Room

Published by Jock on

Let’s not sugar coat it, last week was tough…

We kinda knew it was coming though, when teams dropped on the Thursday rookies were dropped, premo’s were dropped, Sunday squads added everyone available on their list. Of course it doesn’t help when “reliable” premo’s have a down game, and rookies like Holman and Finlayson hit a wall. Nor does owning Jack bleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep Billings help the cause.

I always just figured my premo’s would get me through the hard times, but if it’s not these guys then who is it? Where do I begin looking?

This stage of the Supercoach year is a bit like when you’ve lost a few early wickets in a one dayer and you need to rebuild. Play it relatively safe but if there’s an opportunity you pounce on it. Make the right moves now and you’ll set yourself up for a big total. Make panic decisions and you’ll lose more wickets, the byes will hit you and you’ll be all out in the fortieth over. And, umm… I’ve really squeezed a lot of out this analogy but you get the gist right?

Luckily my fellow site contributors are making much more sense than I do this week. Mum and Dad (Patch and Lek) dropped some more zesty takes this week in the podcast. Barron gave us the good oil on the next batch of rookie hopefuls, Lek cleared out the post office box and answered your concerns for the week and Sloane and Damo have again given us their combined powers for captains and the cheat sheet.

THE NEWS

Can we just have one week where everything isn’t awful? Just one?! It feels like every time I welcome back a premo after a week off I lose two more.

Brett Deledio, Tom Lynch, Chad Wingard, Dom Sheed, Tex Walker, Charlie Curnow, and Michael Walters are just some of the names fighting over a massage table in the ever growing SuperCoach injury room. But wait, there’s more! (there’s always more…) read on.

For tonight, Geelong have swapped Rhys Stanley with Zac Smith, and Stu Crameri will play his first game for a while. Scooter Selwood is back in, tag job on Whitfield maybe? GWS have handed club debuts to Lachie Keeffe ($123.9k FWD/DEF) and Dylan Buckley ($158.3k – DEF). ZGL has been named for the clash. Still no Josh Kelly. I believe he’s secretly gone about a complete groin relocation.      

Gold Coast have been hit by the injury bug, making four forced changes and dropping Michael Barlow after one week. There will be debuts for Charlie Ballard ($117.3k MID/FWD) and Brayden Crossley ($117.3k – RUC). Big news for the Essendon v Hawks matchup with popular rookies Matt Guelfi and Dave Mirra DROPPED. James Sicily returns just in time to face a team Hawthorn hate, I reckon he’ll take his boot off and try to stab someone this week. Paddy Ryder is back baby! Jasper Pittard returns as well. Lachie Murphy has again been named an emergency at the Crows, although Darcy Fogarty is back again along with Eddie Betts. Bubble boy Myles Poholke has been dropped. The Blues finally regain Matty Kreuzer for the clash. LDU has been dropped again, this time for the game against Sydney, where Buddy Franklin is still not right. Shaun Higgins’ pretty face is back to its prettiest. Patch will be pleased. He’s been a wreck ever since it was rearranged in that bump.

Richmond have added the four that were dropped last week without any confirmed outs as yet. Freo have added a bunch of fringe players. Blake Acres has been “managed” at the Saints. Hunter Clark and Armo will return, Rowan “My Boat” Marshall has been adequately repaired and declared sea worthy. Christian Petrappa has been named after another case of blaming it on the dog. Winner of The Recruit, Matt Eagles ($123.9k – DEF), has been named for Brisbane on an extended bench. Collingwood will make at least three changes, with Maynard, James Aish, and Ben Reid all out with injury. Fas and Taylor Adams will be two of those ins you’d reckon, and there could be possible debuts for Sam McLarty ($123.9k – DEF) and Brayden Sier ($123.9k – MID). Brodie Grundy has been named but will be “managed”.

THE HOUSE OF EVIL

The rookie cupboard is bare bones this week, only two decent rookies on the bubble in Taylin Duman and Tom Cole. With no fat and juicy downgrade rookies available if you’re downgrading this week it will depend on the role these guys will have in your team. Pay up for Cole if you will be playing him at D6. Duman is a better option on the bench because a) he is 46k less than Cole, and b) he will make some nice coin this week thanks to the 85 in his system. The 50 in week two is enough to make me nervous. Need I remind you of the Nick Coffield debacle?

If you can hold off this week a double downgrade scenario will present itself Ben Ronke, Charlie Spargo, Kobe Mutch, James Worpel and Nick Shipley confirmed second gamers this week. Flynn Appleby and Oscar McInerney are on extended benches.   

These guys come with a free frogurt (that’s good!)

-65 – Taylin Duman*

-64 – Tom Cole*

-7 – Zac Bailey

These premiums contain potassium benzoate (that’s bad!)

JJK – 188

Matt Crouch – 182

Dusty – 182

Kruze – 176

Dayne Zorko – 172

Bryce Gibbs – 168

Sidebum – 166

Titch – 156

Patrick Dangerfield – 151

Note Dusty, Titch, and Danger all have high breakevens this week. Dusty and Titch will be available for under 600k next week and if Danger keeps going the way he is it won’t be long until he drops below this mark either. If you’re missing one of these guys think a few steps ahead about how you’ll pounce on them in the coming weeks.

SMOOTH KEVY’S LOCK OF THE WEEK

There was a few on Twitter applauding themselves for holding Lachie Neale after his lean start to the year. He didn’t top 100SC for the first month, but over the past two games he has scored 100 and 151SC. At 523k and a breakeven of 45, he’s shed almost 76k from his starting price. With his proven ceiling, 16 of his 31 100+ scores for the past two seasons have been 120+, he’s someone that needs to be considered.

Stats wise; Lachie is still finding plenty of the ball. Averaging 31.3 a game (5th in the comp). His d.e%, however, is what is mainly holding him back. It currently sits at 68% whereas last year it was 78% (averaged 109SC). His only other stat to show significant decline has been his clearance stat (-1.5 compared to last year).

If you’re after a value round 14 bye player or not really giving a stuff about them this year, Lachie is a proven SuperCoach gun at bargain price.

Now it’s time for a new segment…

You know what really grinds my gears? This ‘state of the game’ debate and how we fix it. What’s to fix, AFL? YOU created this. YOU change the rules every freakin year to create a “better” product. The players are confused, the fans are confused, the umpires are confused, and the media pile it on. By limiting interchange caps the next athletic freak becomes the next big thing, who cares if he’s a natural footballer or not (probably a basketball background). The natural footballer’s get overlooked because they are too short, or too slow, or run funny and our game suffers because of your incompetence.

And that’s what really grinds my gears.

HEY NOW, YOU’RE A DRAFTSTAR

Strange week this week as Port v Eagles and Sydney v North are the only two games the feature clubs that are both in the top 8. I am still giving lots of money to my therapist trying to erase the mental scars of covering North games in the preseason, so let’s look at West Coast v Port.

As always, will kick things off with the guns and guru’s at Fantasy Insider and their ideal lineup for this game.

My take:

Bit pushed for time this week so I’ll give you the reasoning for my lineup. If you want some Lineup Cruncher goodness head over to the Fantasy Insider website and check ‘em out.

Nic Nat and Ryder will be the popular options for this clash, I’ll fade both and take Scotty Lycett for only $150 more than NN. He’s had a decent fortnight and does enough around the ground.

Tom Cole’s price is a little high for a third gamer but I don’t like any of the selections below him. JGov will do intercepting JGov things, he’s also in the Fantasy Insider ultimate lineup so that’s good enough for me.

I’ll stick with Amon and Boak in my mids, but I’m a sucker for Jack Redden. He’s had a pretty slow start to the year and I like to play the guy in form, he scored 124DS last week. Andrew Gaff is my favourite DS play, he gets so damn much cheap ball it’s ridiculous. He’s scored 120DS three times this year.

I had to save money somewhere so I’ve gone with the Jake’s. Jake Waterman might not be a massive ball winner but he also doesn’t do stupid things to give away points. Jake Neade is in a similar boat, fills up the box stats without giving away free kicks.

Sensing another tough week this week. Luck can quickly turn in this game. Best of luck for the week.

Shake_n_Bake_

Tip teams with Murphy move him on really cant see him coming back in. Why sit there and make no coin 🤔

INPieman

It's frustrating having him. But he provides a loop this week

KSinny

ive been happy just using him as a loop

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Was gonna be a good loop for my defence.
But scratch that now as Mirra is out.

INPieman

Know a few who are going sideways from Mirra to Cole. Not against it personally

Crowboy94

He will come back eventually! Very good pressure player which Is something Pyke likes

Shake_n_Bake_

I could be wrong but l think its unlikely he comes back in.

Brady

Did Murphy to duman personally. Only because I had 25 trades left and need someone to generate some cash (had murphy and mirra)

Dawgonit

Greene has to go so which is better:

Hurley via DPP
or
McLean

Lazza

Hurley has a lower BE … but McLean is cheaper .. either is a good option and you cant go wrong (IMO)… I guess the thing I'd consider is the lack of premo's performing up FWD … DEF has lots more options so if you bomb out by a few dollars getting Hurley later, there are good alternatives.

I already have McLean … and Hurley is in my sights…

Dodge

VC-wise, should I go Danger or Titch?

My blind faith in Danger hasn't really come up trumps yet so thinking maybe I need the safer option. Then again, Danger is due…

Ja191

gotta back danger I reckon, he's shown glimpses of exploding

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Same as last week for me

Danger into gawn

But Scotty do us all a favour ffs.
Play danger in the [email protected]

Brim_Cat

Crameri playing, should mean more time on ball for danger

INPieman

Hope so Brim

Holty01

With Crameri in there should be no excuses not to play Danger in the guts. I think this will be a great indication if he does have a niggle or something troubling him.

Simon

What's going on with Parker? He has been shithouse besides round 1 with buddy in and out of the side. Thinking Parker to Merrett is a no brainer.

NoLanguage

I have him too Simon. Gonna hold him, history suggests he burns in the second half of the year – could easily explode against North this week as well. Frustrating but be patient is my advice!

CJ84

I also started with him, i think Buddy/Reid out hurts him. Pretty sure he has spent more time forward during games since these guys are out. Swans have a few juicy games coming up – North, hawks, freo, lions, saints, blues.
as far as i know he isn't carrying any niggles. i'm not trading he will repay the faith, good thing is he can go big

SC_Kev7

Ahhhh, sorry about the whole posting my Draftstars lineup 4 times thing. I’ll fix that later

Lekdog

Fixed my love

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Kev u r a monty to win draftstars with that team. 4 times the fun. <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="🙈" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.4/svg/1f648.svg"&gt;

SC_Kev7

Still still struggle to crack 800 Trig 😜

Da_Boysh

Kev I assume you are using premium – it seems essential for this site yes? most decent content is blocked behind the pay wall

SC_Kev7

Yeah I am, Da_Boysh. I believe you can sign up with a free account and get basic number cruncher, which is the average of a players 5 most recent games. Premium includes other markers like opponent / ground history.

If you can snag a free trial it’s worth it

HamGrantagonist

Any trade ideas? 510K bank

DEF: Laird, Sicily, Ryan, Murray, Finlayson, Doedee (Naughton, Mirra)
MID: Fyfe, Martin, Cripps, Treloar, Whitfield, Parker, Kelly, Holman (Brayshaw, Banfield, Garlett)
R: Nic Nat, Gawn (English)
F: Gray, Heeney, Cameron, J.Thomas, Fritsch, Giles-Langdon (Henry, Keefe)

Can go any combo of Premo MID/FWD/DEF

At the moment I'm thinking Holman/Thomas out.- Macrae/Yeo in, which helps with loading up R12 bye players.

Any other combos? I've looked at Macrae/Bont/Mitchell for mid inclusions, McLean as FWD PREMO and Hurley/Yeo/Howe are the defender premos i like

BrownlowBoy

The way I see it. You have 2 mid spots left. They should be reserved for Danger and Mitchell, unless you plan on offloading Whitfield or Parker.

If you plan on offloading Whitfield or Parker to get whichever one of Danger and Mitchell you don't bring in – bring in Macrae.

If you plan on holding onto Whitfield and Parker, bring in a forward and a defender. I personally like Hurley and Yeo over Howe, so which ever one suits your bye structure the best, bring them in. Bring McLean in as a forward.

Ayyy

Alright guys. I have a big problem. I have Franklin and Greene in the forward line. Who gets the arse first?

TheGreatBozza

Greene

INPieman

Bad Toby. Giants saying 2-6. Can't risk a 6

Derek

Greene has to go

Lazza

I have both too and Greene is going … make sure you do it before tonight's game !!

INPieman

Zorko 430K with a BE of 172. Good Lord!

TheGreatBozza

did anyone say M9?

INPieman

That's an option to consider Boz. I went to the Pies Lions game last year. Buckley let Zorko run riot & Pies still won easily. Don't be surprised if it happens again

BrownlowBoy

How good is it gonna be downgrading Kelly to Zorko.

INPieman

That's quite possible BB

Lekdog

Oh, should've looked at comments before replying…great minds

Westy

At the moment people should be upgrading Zorko to Kelly! 😉

Blaknight

I'm holding for this exact reason. He's already burnt lots of cash whats another $50k. LOL. I was trading him for Macrea but decided to keep him and upgrade a rookie to Selwood instead at the last minute. That payed off. WOOT. I just hope Zorko can ton up for me this week or even a high 90.

Lekdog

Downgrade Tim Kelly to him next week

Marty

Why would you go to Zorko when he is scoring poorly? Kelly is a keeper and one less player to worry about.

Lekdog

You wouldn't but it's funny

Phil

Who has more job security, Charlie Spargo or Malcolm Turnball?

INPieman

Depends on the sort of bench you like. Malcolm's on the front bench & Charlies on the extended bench

BlueBaggerJosh

Murray to Cole and Banfield to uber premo mid
Or upgrade Murray to Sicily?

Holty01

Id paint the fence mate. Time to move both on.

Da_Boysh

I am concerned about Cole's cash generation. if you need him on field thats the only reason i would consider him.. even then I think its worth getting Dunman

BrownlowBoy

Heard a rumour that Dangerfield could be a late out. Not from any reliable source so could be just BS, but just make sure you have an emergency who is playing just incase it happens.

Da_Boysh

i am pretty content leaving him out of my team this season.. unless he sets the world on fire around his bye

BrownlowBoy

It's a long season. If you didn't have Dangerfield and your opponent did come finals time, I'd be concerned.

Da_Boysh

i think that not having him is the POD because everyone will jump on, if I dont have him in finals it means I might have a better defence/forward line. He seems to have some sort of injury im just not convinced. its a coin flip for me

KSinny

Upgrading Banfiled this week and can afford anyone who should I get? Already got Titch, Dusty, Fyfe, Cripps, Cogs and Zerrett.

Brim_Cat

Oliver or mccrae, leave a spot for danger

KSinny

Was thinking Oliver this week and Danger in 2

Da_Boysh

personally i like Macrae, i like the POD, consistency and i like the bye – for me that bye is crucial

Da_Boysh

Is there a free trial for Fantasy Insider or a promo.. keen to try it but not at 40p/month

INPieman

Is it $40 a month! I'd rather allocate that to 24 cold ones

Dildor

Its just a compilation of free information anyway, you could sit down with those 24 cold ones and enjoy doing your own with the use of fanfooty and footywire. Ez.

Lekdog

Hey mate, if you create a free account you get access to some of the tools. Premium gives you access to more advanced stuff. Have a go and let me know what you think. I have premium but interested to hear about the free experience!

Sana

Neale, Zerrett or Mclean community? Neale/Zerrett would be my 7th premo mid or Mclean my 5th premo fwd.

BrownlowBoy

Neale has the ceiling.

Jimmy

24 trades and $220k, going Murray to Duman and Greene to McLean, thoughts? Next week I’ll have around $425k to spend if I do these trades

Defenders: laird yeo Sicily finlayson doedee Murray (naughton Murphy)

Midfielders: Fyfe Martin Mitchell Cripps Coniglio Zorko Kelly Holman (Banfield Brayshaw Barry)

Rucks: Martin Gawn (Cameron)

Forwards: Heeney Greene Billings Christensen Fristch Guelfi (Henry Keefe)

How many on the right?

KSinny

Lazza

This very minute I have 27. But by Saturday it will be 25. Unless I can buy some from the Pieman.. He is a tricky trader …

Dildor

ill sell you 2 for a 6 pack of jimmy and 4 premiership points

Holty01

21. Will have 15 in 3 rounds. 2 short of full premo hopefully

Patch

Sitting on 22, Corey. You?

Corey

24 I’m Hoping that’s around Par
Walters out for McLean this week just can’t afford to have three onfield rookies to hold Walters

John

Dylan or Cole for sam Murray

John

Duman*

seen_burns

I'm going for Duman

Jim_bob321

Need some help community..
Should I be trading Walters?
I currently have… buddy, gray, smith, Fritsch, Spargo (went Banfield down to spargo), Henry..
Thinking Walters to Sicily but just need some clarification on the trade..
Thanks community

Lazza

I'm foolishly believing the reports Walters will only be a couple of weeks… so holding him… but I am trading Greene, and probably to Scillyflog

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Jimmy that is a pretty light fwd line.
Relying on too rooks me thinks

Jim_bob321

Hence trading walters out to.. Sicily
Tempted to go westhoff but with ryder in… anyways westhoff never got much time in the ruck.. dougal howard was the main ruck

Harry

Hold.

Chris_Judd

Trading Greene to Sicily and Sam murray down to Cole, thoughts?

Lazza

I like the move … but Cole is expensive .. …is Duman an option .. not sure which has better JS .. so Duman would be my choice as it lowers the exposure should either be left stranded on 3 games .. Duman has a better ROI outlook …and Taylin is a good name for a defender… 🙂

Patch

Yeah I like it. Cole will score far more than Duman. If that spot will be onfield, go Cole. If it's just bench cover, go Duman

BlueBaggerJosh

cole or duman at d6?

Holty01

Im grabbing Cole for D7. He is more expensive but recon he will still make more

Tyruddanaut

Does anyone know when Sunday teams are released?

Lazza

5:00 tonight.

Lazza

they dribble out … as late as 6:00pm.

Derek

I'll be loopholing Z-Langdon tonight. If he doesn't do any good, i'll then have the painful decision of choosing between Crowden or Garlett for the onfield position. oh dear, i don't even want to think about it. yet.

Shake_n_Bake_

Im in the same boat with Henry!

The Ranger

How's Henry looking this morning Shake?

Shake_n_Bake

well that does change my plans Ranger! Will leave Guelfi on hope hes not a late in!!
Ill leave it till the last minute see how Naughton goes my emg if he spuds it Murray could become Yeo!

The Ranger

You had Guelfi too eh? The SC Gods are smiling on ya Shake, get a lottery ticket today!

Russty_

Reckon ZGL will go ok tonight Derek, I'm loopholing Keefe, good to finally get some use out of him other than switching with Sicily, hope he goes big in his first game back..if he fails I can use Fritsch.
I reckon I'd go Crowden if ZGL flops, remember Garlett's 5 disposal game.

KSinny

same here Russty!

Defying_Madness

Should I play Keefe over Henry?

KSinny

Yes

Gary Boxall

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

TheGreatBozza

Anyone got some trade suggestions? I’m short of going Holman to a Heeney via DPP or a premo mid other than Gibbs or Zerrett

$256k, 26 trades

B – Laird, Savage, Finlayson, Murray, Doedee, Naughton (Murphy, Richards)
M – Dusty, Titch, Fyfe, Cripps, Pendles, Coniglio, Kelly, Holman (Banfield, Garlett, Higgins)
R – Grundy, Gawn (Hayes)
F – McClean, Billings, Sicily, Smith, Walters, English (Fritsch, Giles-Langdon)

Leaning to holding Walters for now, but it’s tempting to love him on to Bont/Macrae

Defying_Madness

Murray up to a defence premo

TheGreatBozza

I’m ranked 1500 so I’m thinking I could go hard
Murray > Hurley or Yeo? And hold Walters

Could also go Murray > Howe (Collingwood bias), Walters > Heeney or premo mid sub $580k(Crouch, Oliver, Bont, Gibbs)

Defying_Madness

Would probably go Yeo due to his bye and price drop

min0008

Holman and Banfield to Dangerfield and Merrett/JPK or Holman/Banfield to Merrett/JPK and Crowden to McClean. Thoughts?

Lazza

Merret and McLean … wait for Danger until he bottoms out.

BrownlowBoy

Petracca named.

BrownlowBoy

Acres out.

Defying_Madness

Fritsch and Higgins are playing. Many people just let out sighs of relief.

BadgerHoney7

Better job security out of Spargo/Mutch/Worpel don't think I've left any rookie MIDS out. Need to choose one this week, who do I choose.

Pod

Worpel – i am a hawks fan and he has composure and played a excellent game on the weekend and great at tackling wont be dropped for a while. Ready Made also

Pod

Mutch has competition as Essendon and Spargo will get dropped when the likes of Petracca, Viney, McDonald, Salem and Hogan all play

Dan

Neale this week or Crouch next week community?

Lazza

Neale this week cos you can wait 2 weeks for Crouch..

Lazza

Petracca playing ,, ifa nyone cares …

Russty_

I care, thanks Lazza

Joe_T

Which combo scores more this week?

Naughton + Stephenson + JPK (wary of potential Ben Jacobs tag)
vs.
Sam Murray + T Cole + McLean

Crowboy94

Geez I hope Zorko turns it around! Will be such a good player to bring in with his price.

Lazza

If he does I will sh1t purple bricks

Russty_

Needs to deal with taggers before he turns anything around, maybe he needs to be hypnotized or something lol

Lock n Load

is it worth trading JPK (will be M8) in which allows me to do another upgrade in future without using two trades or should i just bite the bullet and get macrae in?

Lock n Load

Mids are Danger, Titch, Dusty, Fyfe, Cripps, Coniglio, Kelly, JPK/Macrae

TOPHAWK1

Go with Macrea. Friendly bye, and in superb consistent form. JPK getting on a bit and likely to be less consistent.

Soothsayer

And a potential Jacobs tag this week

sc tragic

Cotchin late out, saw it in H/S didn't read article tho so no details.

hedski

ZGL or Henry on field tonight community?
The other one will be looped with Fritsch.
Leaning towards fielding ZGL…..

TOPHAWK1

I am going Henry onfield Hedski. Home game for the cats and ZGL still a bit iffy with all his little injury niggles.

hedski

ZGL looked good before half time last week, but that was against Brissy.
Butting heads with you for the first time this year in "Up there Cazaly" this week (I think its that league) TH, good luck mate.
Go cattas.

TOPHAWK1

Should be another tough slugfest as always mate. Good luck and go cats!

Shake_n_Bake_

Who did u end up starting with Hedski?

hedski

ZGL on field Shake, looped Henry tho so might lose 30 points depending how Fritsch goes.
CATTAS!!!

Shake_n_Bake_

Play you next week! Ablett back you must be pretty happy!

BadgerHoney7

You would think Dumans job security is all right now, Johnson comes in for one week, gets managed the next.

seen_burns

Yeah I'm getting Duman, think Ross is backing him in and will play him.

Russty_

Hes over 190cm and playing centre half back, could be the changing of the guard with Johnson time.

Field of Dreams

is Hogan gonna play? if yes I will upgrade a rookie to J McRae or I Heeney…if not can pick up someone even better.

BrownlowBoy

Charlie Constable warming up for Geelong. Danger late out?

TOPHAWK1

You are making me nervous, very nervous…..Dangerfield a late out would throw some serious cats amongst the pidgeons.

AuroraBorealis?!

I have have him and both my opponents in my cash leagues don't, if he plays and goes huge it'd be a massive advantage. Please tell me this isn't the case BB

BrownlowBoy

I think the emergency warms up with the main group every game? Hoping this is the case. They could even play on dropping a tall for a small considering the conditions? I'm praying Danger is not out.

AuroraBorealis?!

All known appendages are currently crossed BB.

BrownlowBoy

Danger plays!

BrownlowBoy

Maybe Menegola will be the late out if we are lucky

Field of Dreams

If Hogan plays I can go banfield to macrae….otherwise its Hogan to Heeney…need help community!

Alby

What to do with Billings?

Krups

Hold he has lost too much cash now

Rick Grimes

Hold, he'll come right. In fact, I'm reasonably confident he'll ton up this weekend.

Defying_Madness

trade him out

KSinny

you gotta hold now lost too much cash

BloodyFranklin

Put some tape on the screen over him and just pretend he isn't there.

Out of sight… out of mind. 👌

Marty

Pot of boiling oil?

Da_Boysh

Whats everyone thoughts on whether Murphy will play i want to use him for captain loophole…

Evo

Thinking just the 1 trade this week. Either Bonner to Hurley or Holman to Cripps/Neale. Chopping and changing between these options.

Any help much appreciated!

TOPHAWK1

Holman to Cripps looks very tasty. That would be what I would be doing. You could go Bonner to Hurley first mind you as Holman still has a BE of 35 whilst Bonner sits at 70 and then go after Cripps next week. Good luck mate!

Evo

Thanks mate, alternatively could go Banfield to Cripps. Only concern with Bonner to Hurley is that Hurley BE is 99 and Cripps is 49 so would probably lose some cash waitin for Cripps.

I think Cripps is the way to go

Rick Grimes

Holman trade I'd say. I'm holding Bonner to see how he goes with Pittard back. It's last chance saloon. Holman is still on my bench and he'll stay there as i can't trust the bugger not to throw in a 35. He may have cash to make but it's questionable.

blueboy

Cole D6 and Bont, or Duman D6 and Macrae?

TOPHAWK1

Option 2 for me. I really like the look of Macrae.

BrownlowBoy

Duman and Macrae

Rick Grimes

Macrae a safer bet than Bont. But you'll hate watching dogs play if Bont rips it up.

Pman

Definitely Option 2 as Macrae far more consistent and POD.

TommyC99

Which option pls guys?
1. Field Naughton and loop Henry and fristch
2. Field Henry and Fristch, and bench Naughton

Marcus

Option 1, gives you a loop option and Naughton should outscore Henry anyway

Rick Grimes

Yep option one. Naughton is building week on week. Looks a decent prospect.

Josh

Should I trade Murray to a def premo or fwd premo (by dpp)?
$305k in the bank
Def: Laird, Savage, Hibberd
Fwd: Heeney, Mclean, Billings, Walters

Russty_

Hi Josh, I'd trade Murray and Walters..Howe is cheap this week.

Josh

Looking to hold Walters given there aren't many fwd premo options.
Would you bring in Howe over Hurley/Simpson?
Aside from last week's 149 he's only tonned up once

JohnDJ59

Hurley for me.

Russty_

I guess if you can afford it, get the best you can, Yeo maybe also..I was gonna get Yeo this week but Howe was a nice price for me and I reckon Pies are going ok and will get better too.
I like Howe's pod-ness also.

TOPHAWK1

Danger playing folks!!

BrownlowBoy

Thank God for that.

What are Geelong doing selecting Stanley again? He is no good.

gator59

Zac Smith is the late out

BrownlowBoy

Yeah what a joke. Geelong been belted in clearances. Bring in the best tap ruckman at the club. Then for him to be a late out.

hedski

Jeez we need another ruck don't we Hedski?

Wonder what Preuss would be on the market for next year?

Doc

I'll give you mason cox for a half sucked mintie?

Russty_

Mason Cox…sucks lol

BloodyFranklin

Make it full sucked and you've got yourself a deal.

TOPHAWK1

Who knows. Maybe Scott can whack Stanley up forward and play Danger in the middle for a change. That would be nice.

BrownlowBoy

You'd think the inclusion of Crameri would allow that to happen.

TOPHAWK1

I agree. Was just kidding around. Want Danger in the midfield. Not fluffing around up forward.

Russty_

What was the doubt with Danger?..didn't check the news today.

BrownlowBoy

Supposedly a late out. Some rumours swirled around.

Russty_

Cheers mate.

BrownlowBoy

Think he's playing sore? Calf corky and sore back I've heard.
