It’s BARGAIN time, community.

Forget Boxing Day, forget closing down sales, forget that time Foxtel tried to make EOFYS a thing (Gretchen, stop trying to make EOFYS happen, it’s never going to happen), this week is where all the bargains you need to care about are.

Lekdog and Patch spend a whole 40 minutes scratching round the bargain bin of Supercoach this week, and we also poke around in the backline to find true love – well, actually it’s just a defensive premium option but that’s basically the same thing, right? Right?

We also have a chat to Hedge from Fantasy Insider who gives us an insight into all things daily fantasy and how Fantasy Insider works – including talking about a whole bunch of their free features.

While we don’t cover rookies this week – here’s the quick 4-1-1 folks, or at least as I see it.

Down back, Naughton has to go with a donut in his rolling average. Finlayson is next on the chopping block, while Murray and Doedee are surviving this week in Patch’s Potatoes.

There are no rookies really on the bubble worth bringing in – Keefe probably the top of that list, but as we’ve said in weeks past, going early on a rookie can spell absolute disaster. We’re looking at you, Ed Phillips.

Also – if you’ve missed the boat on Ronke, you’ve missed the boat. Don’t swim after the boat. As Crouching would say, man who run behind car get exhausted. Man who swim behind boat get wet and cold and left behind in the wet and cold water.

For everything else you could possibly need this week – it’s in the podcast. Chuck the headphones on and give it a listen, folks.

Hey everyone!
Any suggestions on what to do this week?

Laird, Simpson, McGovern, Doedee, Murray, Duman (Naughton, Murphy)

Dangerfield, Mitchell, MaCrae, Fyfe, Cripps, Merrett, Kelly ( Holman, Spargo, Barry)

Gawn, Nank

Heeney, McLean, Sicily, Billings, Fritsch, Higgins (Henry, Guelfi)

20 trades and 119k

    Whatyasmokin · 15/05/2018 at 02:16

    Could go Doedee to Ryan in defence? If you see him in your premo squad of course. Id put him above Hibberd as potential top defender. Hurley and Howe having injury concerns is a real spanner in the works.

    Jake Lloyd worth a look. Tmac a bit of a maybe.

      Finnius · 15/05/2018 at 11:28

      Howe has an injury concern????? Pls no. I have no defensive cover this week.

    r_calve · 15/05/2018 at 09:48

    naughton to keefe
    billings to menegola

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 15/05/2018 at 13:35

    Naughton to Keeffe
    Doedee to Yeo

      Crowboy94 · 15/05/2018 at 14:10

      That's what I was thinking Samurai

        Davo · 15/05/2018 at 14:36

        That's the best move, start beefing up the backline.

        BVB21 · 16/05/2018 at 14:23

        Best move for sure

    james thomas · 17/05/2018 at 11:51

    get rid of naughton

throttlefinger · 15/05/2018 at 00:41

A big ol' yankee grin across my bloated, tired ass face. Thanks for the shout out, gents!

    The Ranger · 15/05/2018 at 07:38

    How's ya season TF?
    Not seen you posting this year.

      INPieman · 15/05/2018 at 11:40

      He's ranked 300th. Career best

        The Ranger · 15/05/2018 at 12:01

        Thanks Pieman,
        And congrats to you TF, keep it up mate.

    Lekdog · 15/05/2018 at 18:13

    You bloody gun mate! Getting off Twitter seems to be the answer

Ken · 15/05/2018 at 01:27

Is hogan the real deal?

    Whatyasmokin · 15/05/2018 at 02:08

    I started with him at 380k for me he's the real deal πŸ˜‰

    Low BE right now so get him in if you have faith.

    Mike · 15/05/2018 at 14:52


    Yeahnahyeah · 15/05/2018 at 15:51

    I didnt think so but now am warming to him… might be one of my last upgrades

      Petracconaldo · 16/05/2018 at 10:14

      Yes, has an average of 106 this year if you take out the stinker he had against the Dons

Monty · 15/05/2018 at 01:28

Should I swap billings to Rockliff after ports bye? I can't wait to get rid of billings

    Whatyasmokin · 15/05/2018 at 02:06

    Worth a shot, if you can spare another trade later if rocky gets injured, which is probably 50/50, no exaggeration.

    Derek · 15/05/2018 at 09:30

    Billing’s needs Saints to win to score well.

    Can you see any wins coming?

    Collingwood, Richmond, WCE, Swans and Suns before their bye.

      Shake_n_Bake · 15/05/2018 at 11:17

      Will push the Pies this week Derek. Got that feeling it will be close.

DANGER1VDUSTY2 · 15/05/2018 at 02:13

Lekdog/Patch how about (you're special saying – he's good at football!) a new category titled – He Sucks Footballs!
Billings and Petracca top the list.

    Whatyasmokin · 15/05/2018 at 02:19

    Yeah but come on who would start with them? Petracca a slight possibility sure….but jeez Billings was overpriced bigtime! (Braces for impact of tomatoes being thrown by the community…..)

      Doc · 15/05/2018 at 08:51

      *Throws tomato on behalf of community*

      Derek · 15/05/2018 at 09:27

      There was just no-one else at the start. Gray not playing, Menagola overpriced, buddy get cheaper, Greene injury concern, JJK injured…

        DavidSA · 15/05/2018 at 11:32

        There was no love for Mundy either no one here talking him up before the season.

          Derek · 15/05/2018 at 13:41

          I had Barlow in my preseason team!

          Didn’t pick McLean because I didn’t even know what he looked like

    Lekdog · 15/05/2018 at 18:14

    I love/hate this

ronkeydonkey · 15/05/2018 at 04:12

Ronke is a likely F1 with that mammoth average. Tim Kelly or David Mundy 2.0 with a ceiling of '17 Dangerfield going forward.

    Lekdog · 15/05/2018 at 18:14

    Spot on here

Adam · 15/05/2018 at 06:25

I need a Mid rookie for Finlayson???
Anyone please

    StevoRivo · 15/05/2018 at 08:03

    Phillips & Ainsworth, comes with the 1 game risk though.
    Otherwise Worpell (if he plays), Ballard or Scheer.

      Adam · 15/05/2018 at 09:20

      Think I’m leaning towards Ainsworth

    Yeahnahyeah · 15/05/2018 at 16:07

    Phillips easy

    Lekdog · 15/05/2018 at 18:14

    Phillips if I had to pick someone

    chicken · 17/05/2018 at 11:55


BadgerHoney7 · 15/05/2018 at 09:04

Phillips is nice, probably will not get dropped either, had the most touches for the Saints on the weekend in his first game.

    Rippo · 15/05/2018 at 10:19

    no he didn't

    SC_Sixty6 · 15/05/2018 at 11:39

    Had most touches since the 90's I they were saying. Not sure who it was. But was highest possies 'since' then.

Corey · 15/05/2018 at 09:20

Tim Kelly to Dayne Zorko?

    dontblushbaby · 15/05/2018 at 09:24

    Surely you have other concerns ? Well done if you don’t Corey

      Corey · 15/05/2018 at 10:00

      I have Billings Hahaha fml

    r_calve · 15/05/2018 at 09:50

    kelly will grow another 50k or so an dis scoring better than Zorko, Zorko will also gett tagged by howe next week so hold off tll you can be sure

Hchachenko · 15/05/2018 at 09:46

Thoughts on cunnington and m crouch community? Really want Oliver but he’s a bit too exy and it means I can’t upgrade Naughton to anyone decent in the back line. The extra 60 odd grand would be handy.

    Yeahnahyeah · 15/05/2018 at 16:06

    Wouldn't touch cunnington personally, if you wanted a north pod id go higgins. then again, can you see them both ranking in the top 10-15 mids end of year?

      Hchachenko · 15/05/2018 at 21:45

      Thanks mate, ended up swinging it and got the bont and Jake Lloyd for doedee and Petracca (yep, had Petracca in the fwd line, moved him to the mid to trade him out) still dunno if it’s the right decision. Pressed the reverse button 300 times today FML.

      r_calve · 16/05/2018 at 21:27

      Cunnington would get huge scores but his efficiency is horrible so I would suggest maybe picking up dusty next week cos he will be sub 500k

blakeyboi · 15/05/2018 at 09:47

finlayson to sicil or yeo

    r_calve · 15/05/2018 at 10:00


    Derek · 15/05/2018 at 13:38

    No doubt Yeo will be top 6 defender from here on.

    Not sure about Sicily.

    Price very similar now

      cheap · 15/05/2018 at 15:28

      whoever est cheaper

r_calve · 15/05/2018 at 09:50

what forward or defender should i trade in, can do either, i have 530k and i have Heeney, McGovern, Sicily, McLean, laird, Simpson and d smith

thoughts please?!?!?!?!

Sc_Wow · 15/05/2018 at 10:00

Think guest appearances from community members could be a good idea. Perhaps those that are traveling well, see what they’ve done to achieve it.

    Narcissist · 15/05/2018 at 10:54

    i.e. you.

      Sc_Wow · 15/05/2018 at 10:58

      I guess I could be one.
      There are many high performing community memebers this year and the boys asked for suggestions. Would be good to get input from members

        BVB21 · 15/05/2018 at 11:59

        I think it’s a great idea.

        The guys do a great job at the entertainment aspect but would a few of us see this as work rather than fun.

        Would like some advanced concepts discussed

        Russty_ · 15/05/2018 at 18:11

        I reckon it'd be great if this site was registered Intense Debate accounts only, I know it's been said before but these name changing every 2 seconds trolls really are just the lowest form of life….probably lying on their couches eating crap all day and would have to be removed from their house with a Crane.

          Sc_Wow · 15/05/2018 at 18:14

          I agree Russty

      Doc · 15/05/2018 at 11:07

      While I agree that Wow most likely was referring to himself I don't think you need to be so salty about it. He clearly has half an idea of what he's doing being ranked inside the top 50 (not sure on actual rank) which means he quite possibly has some pretty decent ideas in regards to trades, how to plan for the byes etc.

        DavidSA · 15/05/2018 at 11:21

        He said members and yes he has asked to be on the podcast sometime during the 3 byes. He has some info he wishes to share… what's wrong with that?

    SC_Sixty6 · 15/05/2018 at 11:38

    We've done nothing to achieve it Wow. It's all Luck remember!

      Derek · 15/05/2018 at 13:36

      Even if it is just an article with the same questions given to a few fellas and they respond.

      Who were your starting PODs?

      What was your Ruck set-up?

      Did you start Danger?

      Do you look at upcoming fixtures before getting a player?

        Sc_Wow · 15/05/2018 at 13:51

        Yeah I think there is a lot of community member that could offer some great material

    Cpt · 15/05/2018 at 13:49

    Define criteria for doing well?

    Eg: Top 1%, +24 Trades,

      SC_Sixty6 · 15/05/2018 at 16:01

      So #3 ranked bloke has 19 trades there for does not meet criteria? Dreaming mate. People who are aggressive and go full premo asap are on top. You don't get to keep the trades for next year!

        BVB21 · 15/05/2018 at 17:51

        Totally agree sixty6.

        Still seeing people with Murray, finlayson and Doedee in defence.

        What are people waiting for?

        I’ll be full premo in 3 weeks

          SC_Sixty6 · 15/05/2018 at 17:54

          Exactly BVB! I am 4 away from full premo due to Nic Nat being rubbed out. Couldn't stand the thought of a donut so went to Grundy. Happier with Grundy now though.

          Also had Kruezer, Crouch, Greene, Walters.

            BVB21 · 15/05/2018 at 18:05

            That’s some seriously bad luck.

            Impressive to still have such a good ranking!

            I think upgrading to Grundy was Correct though.

            It sucks when you can’t paint the fence but a one week delay is better then a donut.

            Wow will have the same dilemma this week. Has Hurley and Naughton out with Mirra and Murphy on the pine and can’t take two donuts with his ranking.

            The good news is that we can do these injury trades and still get to full premo easily this year thanks to some great rookies this year.

              SC_Sixty6 · 15/05/2018 at 18:49

              Yeh abit unlucky but have to roll with the punches! Yeh Wow will sort himself out he has a good plan!

              I only mentioned the premo injuries as most also had the injured rookies.

              Gonna keep Kelly BVB?

                BVB21 · 15/05/2018 at 19:49

                That’s the million dollar question this week.

                Option 1) I am thinking about running the E on Doedee if mirra doesn’t get named.

                Then If he scores ok will trade Kelly to Danger.

                Then Keefe in for Fogarty and move coffield to Mid.

                Option 2) is Doedee out for Webster (risky I know) or Hurn and then Keefe in for Fogarty and move coffield to mid. Kelly would then go out next week for Phillips or Ainsworth and that would allow me to drop Henry who’s 114 would drop out for Heeney who 75 will drop out. Selling Henry high, buying Heeney low. I need Heeney next week because I have gray who won’t play next week.

                The problem with option 2 is no Dangerfield and he plays Essendon, Carlton and Gold Coast next 3 weeks.

                But the good news with option 2 is I can loophole week 10 with Barry for M8 spot (o can do that right?, he’s not locked out) so not having Kelly then isn’t such a bad problem.

                The final midfield spot would then go to Rockliff after the bye as I won’t be able to afford danger.

                With option 1 I would just run Doedee through till Hurley has his bye and then pick him up as will have enough money then with spargo, ronke, coffield etc max out

                Decisions decisions

                I am leaning towards option 1 because Hurley and Danger are safe bets and if Danger goes huge will be left behind.

                Also I not confident picking Webster or Rockliff. Too risky. If I was further behind then it’s a risk I would take.

                If I don’t get Danger now I won’t get him till after his bye when I upgrade an underperforming premo.

                  SC_Sixty6 · 15/05/2018 at 20:05

                  Yeh get Danger mate. Beware of the 'ill trade if he scores badly'…..that cost me getting macrae the week of his 189 because Kelly got a 115 so I thought why do I need to trade…..now Macrae is gone haha. Out of reach.

                    BVB21 · 15/05/2018 at 20:13

                    Yeah I was leaning towards that.

                    Glad to hear someone like yourself thinks so too.

    prizza · 15/05/2018 at 22:38

    Hang on to those trades,, you aint got many left , had all the luck, and luck is 80% sc especially when 90% have the same squad of 40 from the begining .
    If you are inside 500 after round 16 you have the right to discount luck.
    Btw all the very best, but leave the trumpet behind for a bit.

      Sc_Wow · 16/05/2018 at 07:58

      Had my fair share to deal with
      Greene, Kruse, Zerrett, Hibberd, Hurley
      But my teams got through it with smart selections and replacements
      Eg starting with McLean, bringing in Gray early, Ditching Zerrett for oliver.
      Sick of hearing about all this luck

        BVB21 · 16/05/2018 at 10:56

        Me too.

        You make your own luck.

        I play poker for a living and all the bad players always complain about their luck.

        SuperCoach is basically maths + strategy

          Sc_Wow · 16/05/2018 at 11:12

          Yep I think a lot of people struggle with the math. Or looking at it critically.

          JOHN DWYER · 20/05/2018 at 10:28

          Great analogy. Id say its the same discussion. You can play sc well and not have it fall your way at times but luck is only one aspect of the game.

Matt English · 15/05/2018 at 10:03

Leaves me with 50k and 19 trades and 5 off full premo, what does everyone think??

    NoLanguage · 16/05/2018 at 00:57

    Doing similar trades mate, Doedee to Yeo and Naughton to Keefe. Leaving me with 19 trades and 5 off not counting Hibberd. I think you're in a good spot, as long as we have about 10 for injuries post byes!

    BVB21 · 16/05/2018 at 14:24

    Good trades but hard without full team to see if it’s the best trades

Help!!!!! · 15/05/2018 at 10:20

Laird, Slicy, Yeo, Mirra, Appleby, Duman (Buckley, Murphy)

Oliver, Mitchell, Macrae, Fyfe, Cripps, Conigilo, Spargo, Mutch ( o' Connor, brown, Barry)

Gawn, Grundy, ( olango)

Heeney, Smith, Henry, Ronke, Zac Giles Langdon, Guelfi (Ahern, Keeffe)

28 trades and 76k need help

    Andrew · 15/05/2018 at 10:49

    You’ve only used 2 trades so far?!?!

    sc tragic · 15/05/2018 at 10:49

    If you have 28 trades the world is your oyster.

    Shake_n_Bake · 15/05/2018 at 11:26

    I think ur telling porkys! Why would you why have Mirra Appleby Duman Spargo Mutch Ronke Guelfi & Keefe ? none of these players were named rd1.

      DavidSA · 15/05/2018 at 11:40

      probably started r6
      Only 13 premiums in a guns rookies is the give away. Needs to upgrade 9 rookies "πŸ˜‚ That won't be finished all season long.

        Shake_n_Bake · 15/05/2018 at 11:52

        Thats what l was thinking came in rd 6.

[email protected] · 15/05/2018 at 10:25

Worth getting Ballard (if named) and keep Holman to play through the byes potentially?

    DavidC · 15/05/2018 at 10:38

    I'll be holding Holman unless he is dropped. Not sure of Ballard's JS.

      INPieman · 15/05/2018 at 11:44

      Nick Holdman

    Yeahnahyeah · 15/05/2018 at 16:01

    No idea why people would trade Holman now. Will be very useful through the byes and can score decently. One big score and could jump another 50k

    prizza · 15/05/2018 at 22:41

    ballard looked comfortable i thought, sc relevant? not sure but may be a 150 gamer i rekon

blakeyboi · 15/05/2018 at 10:45

out finlayson – in ??

out Coffield or dodee -??

I will have 1,037,000k (cof) or 1,153,000k (Dodee)

1 mid 1 defender or 2 defenders

defence: Laird, Hurley, Dodee, Murry, Finlayson, Cole (Duman, Murphy)

Mid: T-mich, dusty, cripps, congilio, Z-merret, t kelly, Spargo (Cof,Fogarty,Barry)

Who should i trade in 1 mid 1 defender or 2 defenders and which ones.
thinking of (sicily and yeo if 2 defenders) or (sicil and Crouch or oliver)

    Matt English · 15/05/2018 at 12:24

    I personally would go

    Out Finlayson & Swing Coffield into defence
    Out Doedee
    In Sicily (if he’s not already in your fwd line) otherwise Yeo
    In Dangerfield

    Sicily will be a top 6 fwd and def, or Yeo who’ll be a top 6 def

    Dangerfield? Well it’s Dangerfield.. and I doubt he’ll get any cheaper

      blakeyboi · 15/05/2018 at 12:43

      cool thanks

sc tragic · 15/05/2018 at 10:48

After saying thanks for nothing to Naughton, I have 3 back rookies to unload but I'm not really enamoured with any of the new blood at the moment, maybe Keeffe has to come in but !!!! . I also need to off load Holman/Banfield in the mids, don't like bringing in 1 gamers tho. Decisions,decisions.

    Simo036 · 15/05/2018 at 10:57

    How much cash in the bank? why not upgrade instead of downgrading?

      sc tragic · 15/05/2018 at 11:48

      70K thinking down & up have Sicily on back line with Laird, Ryan, then Dooda, Murray Naughton Bonner Henry.

    Northernsoul74 · 15/05/2018 at 10:59

    Keefe is worth considering if you have Sicily up forward. If you don’t have Sicily I don’t think there are enough positives.

    The Ranger · 15/05/2018 at 11:02

    It's that time of year eh tragic? I always think that this little period before the byes when your first round of rookies are reaching the end of their lifespan is the trickiest time. It can make or break your season.
    Do you cull early and get a bank for the byes? If so what do you downgrade them to?
    Do you hold them and hope they can either hold or increase in value?
    Do you take a punt on a Zorko/Rockliff type that might come good or hold for the premo you really want?
    Do you take the premo that fits your bye structure or grab the one that doesn't but will score better?
    Lots to think about this week.

      NEIL demons delight · 15/05/2018 at 13:40

      Absolutely sums me up Ranger.Going early on PHILLIPS and opting for McDonald over YEO so plenty happening driving me nuts cheers NDD

        The Ranger · 15/05/2018 at 15:55

        I think I'm gonna take Yeo this week to help my bye structure Neil so I'm looking to paint the fence but I started with Keefe so the rookie cupboard is pretty bare for me.
        Great score last week, you whupped me in the Magnificent 7.

Finnius · 15/05/2018 at 11:21

Thoughts on English -> Crossley?

    HarryH · 15/05/2018 at 11:41

    I'm doing it, particularly considering Crossley is bye coverage. My only concern is Peter Wright coming back. Does that affect his JS?

    INPieman · 15/05/2018 at 11:43

    Don't mind it. If Crossley plays through the byes that would be ideal

      Finnius · 15/05/2018 at 17:10

      that was the plan.

      Steeeve · 15/05/2018 at 17:22

      I really wanted English to keep playing and use him as a swinging bench option. Any chance he gets back in the team?

    Lekdog · 15/05/2018 at 18:17

    For cash it's not terrible, hurts flexibility for bye coverage though.

      Finnius · 16/05/2018 at 22:23

      I mean not if Crossley keeps his spot though. Or do you mean DPP?

BlueBalls · 15/05/2018 at 11:35

Laird, Simpson, Sicily, Ryan, Doedee, Murray, (Mirra, Murphy)

Mitchell, MaCrae, Fyfe, Cripps, Neale, Coniglio, Kelly ( Holman, Spargo, Barry)

Gawn, Naitanui

Heeney, McLean, Walters, Smith, Petracchole, Fritsch, (Henry, Guelfi)

Petracchole and Doedee on the chopping block this week. Should I go

Oliver and def rookie or Yeo and mid rookie (Early on Phillips?)

Oliver is better for bye structure but leaves me light down back.

Yeo helps my back line and gives me more options rookie-wise but I'll have to pay more for Oliver who's price will increase more than Yeo's this week (most likely).

Does anyone have advice?

    BlueBalls · 15/05/2018 at 11:37

    Also, I'm aware that it's Macrae and not MaCrae. I copy/pasted a team and edited that because I'm a lazy man.

      DavidSA · 15/05/2018 at 11:58

      i thought it was ahh McCain you've done it again

    JohnDJ59 · 15/05/2018 at 14:03

    I would prefer Oliver over Yeo. You only named seven of your eight on field mids by the way, I assume you will be swinging Spargo and Tracca to get Oliver, my only worry is not sure what def rookies are coming through, so like you said it is probably easier to do the Yeo trade.

      BlueBalls · 15/05/2018 at 14:54

      Ah crap! I have Hogan where Walters is and Walters in the midfield at the moment.

      So I'll be swinging Walters and Tracca. Quite the head scratcher…

INPieman · 15/05/2018 at 11:41

The Curnow family can car pool to the tribunal tonight

    Lekdog · 15/05/2018 at 18:17

    Mum drove them I hear

      Russty_ · 15/05/2018 at 18:21

      Hope eddy gets off too!

SC_Sixty6 · 15/05/2018 at 11:54

Great podcast guys. Can hear the growing confidence oozing out of you two!

As said in the podcast the JR community is really good at SC…..(this year anyway). Is it by coincidence that a couple of consistent top 100 finishers have helped with some advice….oh I mean 'opinions' for community members SC teams?

Veteran and beginner opinions are hard to decipher. Looks like most people have filtered through the nonsense and found the gold!

    prizza · 15/05/2018 at 22:45

    bullshit ,, you wont finish inside 5000 and i will bet on it

      Russty_ · 16/05/2018 at 02:05

      I bet..he'll take that bet..I'll bet you he'll finish in the top 500 at least.

        DavidSA · 16/05/2018 at 02:20

        agree with that my margin line on on him will be 750 $1.10
        He is trading with aggression which is always better than sitting on rooks for an extra 20k that may never happen or takes 3 or more rounds

          Russty_ · 16/05/2018 at 02:28

          True dat Dave, gotta pull in the reins sometime soon though, or best laid plans can all go to crap if one is too aggressive.
          Lots of unexpected events still to come..as always.

        SC_Sixty6 · 16/05/2018 at 07:58

        You know me too sell Russty! 5000 is an insult lol.

      SC_Sixty6 · 16/05/2018 at 08:00

      Deal! Question is how much are you willing to lose?

        prizza · 16/05/2018 at 09:17

        you can tell rusty that il take a grand that you wont finish inside 1000 , and i will bet you a slab about the 5000 line

          SC_Sixty6 · 16/05/2018 at 09:49

          Why didn't you just reply to his comment?

          I've already had 2 blokes pull out on bets pre SC season. One was rooster, he has magically disappeared because he's ranked 51k and another nuffie stopped posting after I wagered 1000.

          So I'll take you up on $1k I finish top 1000.

            DavidSA · 16/05/2018 at 10:27

            My Datsun will place 24th out of 24 cars <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="πŸ‘" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.4/svg/1f44d.svg"&gt;
            The premiums 66 owns are top 30 players all year long so would be surprised if he falls out of top 750 let alone 1k

              SC_Sixty6 · 16/05/2018 at 10:44

              Thanks David! I have 7 of the top 8 overall scorers atm. About to bring some PODs in to finish off the team. Let's hope they perform!

                DavidSA · 16/05/2018 at 10:56

                nice mate. You going for 1 Pod per line? excluding rucks of course

                  SC_Sixty6 · 16/05/2018 at 11:26

                  I'll have 2 in D. 2 in Mid. 1 up fwd.

                    DavidSA · 16/05/2018 at 11:33

                    thats all -15% ownership? Man 5 Pods your going for it "hope they get you to top 10"

                    SC_Sixty6 · 16/05/2018 at 13:32

                    I started with pods…..but they aren't pods anymore because they have gone so well. Changes through the season.

Mystic_Mac · 15/05/2018 at 12:04

What are Buddy owners doing with him?

    DavidSA · 15/05/2018 at 12:05

    i think he will miss a 5th possibly a 6th game so reckon getting Hogan would be the best swap for pts and cash
    Will make 75k for the swap

    Holty01 · 15/05/2018 at 13:22

    He will be my final upgrade so the longer he is out the better for me.
    Honestly dont think Sydney will play him unless he is 100%. With Sydney sitting in the top 8 there is no real need to rush him back. Ill attempt to get him just after his bye

    Dry · 15/05/2018 at 16:42

    Holding Buddy, surely he will play soon it is only a bruised heel.
    If I'd known he was going to miss so many weeks I would of traded him out when he first missed.
    You don't waste a trade on a player who is going to miss 1 week.

      LUKE · 15/05/2018 at 17:33

      Buddy will be back this week

        Russty_ · 15/05/2018 at 18:20

        Doubt it.

          Troy · 18/05/2018 at 16:25

          You doubted wrong!

            Russty_ · 18/05/2018 at 18:38

            I did Troy..Happy days for Buddy's owners πŸ™‚

    Sandyf62 · 15/05/2018 at 18:17

    I just rage traded him to Bont, moved Fogarty to the fwd bench.

      Lazza · 15/05/2018 at 19:14

      Yep, thinking same. Bont BE is 58, and his last 2 games very SC'ish..

    Lekdog · 15/05/2018 at 18:18

    Crying myself

    Scouser · 16/05/2018 at 22:40

    I think if you've held him this long then surely you have to hold unless of course you've survived the premo carnage this year and got a stack of spare trades. Expecting him to be close this week but planning to cover for him and hope Walters is back. Holding them at the same time as our defensive rookies went into freefall has been a big challenge for me and my ranking fallen away from top 500 to 3000 still feel it's the right decision though as too many sideways trades will come back to haunt a lot of people when we get to the pointy end.

Jambo · 15/05/2018 at 12:40

I agree with Ronke. The mad dash for him or Macrae is a manifestation of “FOMO”. Who cares if you miss out anyway. Like Coach Carter said in response to losing his highest scorers last season, “We’ll have new high scorers this season.” Adapt and thrive!

    INPieman · 15/05/2018 at 12:49

    Agreed Jambo. To my surprise Ronke is the 3rd most traded in player. Crazy. It's too late. Just made most of his money. But if your upgrading Billings to Ronke I don't mind it. And it's wait on MacRae. Too expensive now

      DavidSA · 15/05/2018 at 13:19

      People will not see it now but only at seasons end 670k for Macrae and won't average over 120 for rest of season.

      Holty01 · 15/05/2018 at 13:26

      It is a tough one with Macrae though. I think with most you either bring him in now or you may not get him as most midfields are now full premo or 1 short and i would think that last upgrade would be made next 2 weeks.

        DavidSA · 15/05/2018 at 13:59

        Agree Holty only can get him in after the dogs bye as last mid upgrade for those who are needing It with that sort timing.

Ricardo · 15/05/2018 at 13:09

If you don't have Macrae now you'll never have him. If his price were to drop low enough to be able to afford him he's had a massive form slump and you don't want that sort of player.

    DavidSA · 15/05/2018 at 13:16

    thats not how it works mate. He is sky high now and probably peaks with a 690k price tag. Only needs to have 2 weeks in a row of under 115 and his BE will sky rocket for 2-3 weeks and thus go back down to 600k

    INPieman · 15/05/2018 at 13:22

    He has a date with Jacobs in a few weeks. He will be cheapish again

      DavidSA · 15/05/2018 at 13:25

      yeah and then there is teams who have mid depth like Port and Richmond. They play NthMelb twice Port twice Richmond once in final 14 games

      Derek · 15/05/2018 at 13:27

      Has had 6 of the first 8 games under roof at home.

Laird Lad Donuts · 15/05/2018 at 13:26

Jimmy bloody Webster
Been pretty unlucky with Naughton and Hurley and one of them have to go, Yesterday it was Naughton-Webster but i've been reading through the comments and a LOT of people are trading in Webster so I decided to do a little research
Webster is almost 25 and the break out age is usually 23-25 going off by memory, but for the past 5 years he has never averaged over 71
In the past 5 years he has only scored 1 TON, 1, and only ton he scored was a 100 in 2015

Is he finally breaking out or is it a role change OR is it both
Simmo has been consistently good for the past 10+ years
Community does anyone have more of an insight of Webster they could let me know?
And also after all of this… Simmo or Webster

    DavidSA · 15/05/2018 at 13:34

    Not much to do with Webster form or role change. He has games under his belt now and Saints are like soldiers meeting against machine gun bunkers on the beach. Lots of bullets flying in Saints defence

      Laird Lad Donuts · 15/05/2018 at 13:37

      Would you take Webster or Simmo David?

        DavidSA · 15/05/2018 at 13:42

        depends what your final 6 will be mate. a POD on def and fwd line is always better

          DavidSA · 15/05/2018 at 13:45

          Can't possibly make up ground in rank without 2-3 solid PODs in your team. Rest of the Premiums need to be in the top 30 scoring players

          Laird Lad Donuts · 15/05/2018 at 13:47

          Yeo, Sicily, Hurley, Savage, Laird are all locked in just the final spot for taking.
          Scared he is a trap with only 1 ton in 5 years and it only being a 100 in 2015 its pretty scary

            DavidSA · 15/05/2018 at 13:52

            Simmo then for sure

              DavidSA · 15/05/2018 at 13:55

              Savage btw is scoring less last 3 games because he is not getting the freedom to kick. His kick to handball ratio has done a 180

                Laird Lad Donuts · 15/05/2018 at 13:59

                Thanks man ill have a think

Laird Lad Donuts · 15/05/2018 at 13:27

Sorry typo, Yesterday my trade was going to be Naughton-Simmo

Dave · 15/05/2018 at 13:47

Laird, Simpson, Yeo, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray, (Naughton, C,o shea )

Mitchell, crouch, Fyfe, Cripps, Holman, Coniglio, Kelly, Martin ( Coffield, Brodie, Barry)

Gawn, Naitanui ( Cameron)

Heeney, McLean, Spargo, Smith, Petracca, Fritsch, (Crowden, Ahern)

    Doc · 15/05/2018 at 14:20

    Would you be able to afford petracca and finlayson to Webster and sicily?

      Dave · 15/05/2018 at 14:26


        Dave · 15/05/2018 at 14:26

        only 1 of them

    BadgerHoney7 · 15/05/2018 at 15:57

    naughton to rookie and finlayson/murray/doedee to sicily, next week go the again finlayson/murray/doedee to premo def (heath shaw, webster) then the week after that it shall allow you to go trac or fritsch to robbie gray and if not you can just downgrade crowden/coffield.

    redherringfc · 15/05/2018 at 17:09

    Just an idea, but you could get Keefe and Sicily, one as a fwd the other as a def. This gives you a swing that may come in handy.

    Keeffe is on the bubble this week, but I don’t know if he’ll play too many more games.

    Without looking at breakevens I’d probably offload Crowden and Finlayson, but you could easily make a case for half a dozen others.

Warblegarble · 15/05/2018 at 14:28

DEF – Laird, Yeo, Simpson, Doedee, FInlayson, Murray (Murphy, Keeffe)

MID – Macrae, Fyfe, Dangerfield, Cripps, Mitchell, M Crouch, Martin, Kelly (Dow, Coffield, Barry)

RUC – Gawn, Naitanui (Olango)

FWD – McLean, Sicily, Heeney, Fritsch, Giles-Langdon, Spargo (Henry, Guelfi)

19 trades and $52,900 in the bank.

Having Doedee, Finlayson and Murray all on field is making me nervous. Finlayson will be the first one to go, but how can I best set up my defensive line? One up, one down?

    NoLanguage · 16/05/2018 at 01:01

    I'd punt Doedee first. Finlayson looked a bit better last week, the Dodo looks tired

Mike · 15/05/2018 at 14:50


    AFC1886 · 15/05/2018 at 15:00

    Macrae is tempting you’ve missed the boat tho he’s finally up against tougher opponents from here on in so sit and wait (hopefully) for a price drop. Gray has the bye next week so Yeo is probably your best option

    Yeahnahyeah · 15/05/2018 at 15:47

    Yeo 100%

    BadgerHoney7 · 15/05/2018 at 15:53

      I wouldn't trade Coffield yet. Still has cash to make and I assume he will keep getting games as st kilda are terrible.

        blakeyboi · 15/05/2018 at 15:50

          They look like solid trades.

          I’d probably go Danger over Oliver although his be is 119 compared to 75 and he is 30k more.

smart as s · 15/05/2018 at 15:14

danger, fyfe, oliver + doedee, finlayson, murray

What are peoples thoughts on THE RECRUIT Matt Eagles?

Will he hold his spot?

    BadgerHoney7 · 15/05/2018 at 15:52

    if u desperately need a downgrade defender, go for him, but he won't score much and might not hold his spot.

    seen_burns · 15/05/2018 at 16:24

    If you need a back rookie I'd be going with Keeffe has the DPP so a benefit for Sicily owners

need help asap

Cpt · 15/05/2018 at 16:05

With GAJ back, Kelly holding his own and Danger having spells in Fwd’s. Menengola comes straight in!

6.2% ownership and easy games coming up.

Holman and Finlayson culled for Men’s..

    Defying_Madness · 15/05/2018 at 16:28

    Same trades for me except Brayshaw and Doedee. Will be holding Finlay until his bye and swapping him to Hurley. Holman should do well with a weeks rest after so much travelling and will play through the byes. You going early on Phillips?

      Cpt · 15/05/2018 at 17:15

      Yep. At 26 Trades, no injuries and rank of 1700ish I’m shopping early.

      If he ends up on the pine he becomes my full time loophole, though I doubt it given saints performances.

    Dry · 15/05/2018 at 16:54

    Your comment makes no sense, Menegola scored poorly the first few rounds with GAJ back in the team. Round 3 he scored a heap of points in the last quarter when GAJ was sitting on the bench and he got midfield minutes.
    Admittingly he did score well on the weekend with GAJ playing, but to me he appears to be the player most negatively impacted by GAJ's return to Geelong.

      Cpt · 15/05/2018 at 17:30

      Maybe but he’s going to get third defender at best. His avg is good enough for me. Give me a FWD that’s 100+ each week? Started with McLean, Lambert, Heeney, Smith, Sicily (now in Def). And he’s DPP.

      Gray in after bye.

      THE SALTSHAKER · 17/05/2018 at 04:59

20 trades and $450k to upgrade players, any suggestions?

    Cpt · 15/05/2018 at 17:11

    Trade Naughton, Switch Sicily to defence. Get Menengola or Gray or Lambert.

      John · 15/05/2018 at 17:14

      Trade Naughton to who, Webster?

        Cpt · 15/05/2018 at 17:39

        Lambert is my first pick then Menengola the Gray after his bye.

    SC_Sixty6 · 15/05/2018 at 22:33

    Naughton to Simpson
    Christensen to Menegola

Shake_n_Bake_ · 15/05/2018 at 16:21

M McGovern out for an extended period. Big loss to the crows.

    Defying_Madness · 15/05/2018 at 16:25

    Does this mean Murphy gets a chance?

      hedski · 15/05/2018 at 16:46

      Hopefully him or D.Fog.

        BadgerHoney7 · 15/05/2018 at 17:11

        Walker injured as well potentially.

    Crowboy94 · 15/05/2018 at 17:35

    Murphy will be back. We need his pressure.

      SC_Sixty6 · 15/05/2018 at 17:47

      Yup he's in. Poholke out.

    Beezneez · 16/05/2018 at 15:00

    I'm thinking D Fogarty like for like replacement. Hartigan should be back this week and, possibly, Riley Knight who I would expect to be picked before Murphy unless Gallucci gets dropped – although being their no. 1 pick last year , the Crows would want to get games into him. Murphy would also be behind Milera when he's over his injury. Crows will also have Alex Keath, Sam Gibson and Curtley Hampton back from injury this week.

      Beezneez · 16/05/2018 at 15:01

      PS agree Poholke would be first to go atm.

TommyC99 · 15/05/2018 at 16:31

Do I trade out Billings for Crouch/Oliver. Which means i would keep findlayson, Doedee and Murray. Or Keep Billings, and trade one of those 3 to Simmo

    redherringfc · 15/05/2018 at 17:38

    While everyone was watching the best showdown of all time on Saturday, I was torturing myself by watching the Saints. They actually looked good for a quarter and Billings showed glimpses of form (not that you’d know from his 50 points)

    I’ve held him this long, I don’t think it’s worth trading him now. For me, It’s a case of hold and wait.

    Can you get one of the mids by trading out one of the other 3?

      TommyC99 · 15/05/2018 at 17:47

      i could but that would mean going early on a Cummings (already have keeffe) instead of Phillips. I know i am breaking the golden rule with rookies, but i had an absolute shocker last week and need to upgrade this week

    Sandyf62 · 15/05/2018 at 18:05

    I traded out Billings round four for about 150k more than what he is worth now, if I was still holding him, I would look upon him as a rookie, he's scoring like one so might as well, if you had a rookie who wasn't going to make you any more cash and his scoring had dried up, what would you do, let me think for a moment, uprade, so Billings > Oliver looks like a good move.

Simon · 15/05/2018 at 16:57

Finlayson, murray, doedee, e.phillips, fritsch

    Doedee and Murray

    I like the look of Fritsch.

Steeeve · 15/05/2018 at 17:18

Who is best at m6 when all is said and done.
I am assuming the top five defenders are Laird, Yeo, Simpson, Hurley and Sicily.

    redherringfc · 15/05/2018 at 17:43

    Danger might not be this cheap again. I’d get him this week and then Fyfe as soon as possible. Almost identical breakevens.

    Sandyf62 · 15/05/2018 at 18:09

    You should have started with Fyfe, Danger not so much.

Going to do these trades this week.

Naughton to Keefe to have that swing with Sicily.
Doedee to Yeo

Play 3 rookies on field in FWD line this week and swing Sicily back.

Leaves me with 18 trades and 110k in bank, with 5 rookies on field to upgrade

        smart as s · 15/05/2018 at 18:11

        averaging 107.7 for a sub 500k, cant be greedy, could have been worse!

          Defying_Madness · 15/05/2018 at 18:25

          Look at what he has averaged since you brought him in thats all that matter

            smart as s · 15/05/2018 at 18:29

            doesn't matter dude, he is the ninth best mid at the moment in the comp, wouldnt surprise me if he is top scorer for next round. Except for the geelong match, hes been fantastic.

              Defying_Madness · 15/05/2018 at 18:31

              What do you mean 'doesn't matter'? The average is insignificant the only thing that matters is their total points since you brought them into your team. That's why chasing points doesn't work and is a bad strategy.

                smart as s · 15/05/2018 at 18:39

                i reckon the average is a good indication of how well a player is going this season. I dont care what you think, coniglio will be top 5 mid by season's end imho. Good luck to you and your unnecessary arguments. Must be tough to be your friend or family.

                  Holty01 · 15/05/2018 at 20:11

                  i think you have misunderstood what DF is saying. He is averaging 107.9 for anyone who had him since round 1. If you picked him up in round 5, he is averaging 93.25 for you.

                    Captain Risky · 15/05/2018 at 20:22

                    Might have the Jacobs tag this week as well, so that isn't going to improve his scoring..

                    Holty01 · 15/05/2018 at 20:29

                    True. Would think it is him or Shiels

                    Defying_Madness · 15/05/2018 at 20:34

                    Yeah thats exactly what I was trying to say thanks Holty

                    smart as s · 15/05/2018 at 20:51

                    it seems i cant convince you how good a pick coniglio has been. That 64 he scored has made him a bad pick in your book, but not in mine, saw plenty of positives from him.

                    smart as s · 15/05/2018 at 20:39

                    If we take out the geelong game, where he scored 64 with 28 possies at an unheard 27 DE, he is averaging 106.25 pts for my team, dnt know wat the fuss was about. He certainly passes the 'eye' test and i will happily include him in my most disposal multis most week.

                    Daniel Z · 17/05/2018 at 13:27

                    You don't get to "take out" a game though.
                    As far as what D_M and Holty are trying to say, I don't think the argument is that Coniglio was a terrible pick but it largely depends on when you brought him in (especially if it was for Kelly). If you brought him in when Kelly was announced as a late out ahead of round 4, you're doing alright (he's scored 489 points since then) but if you brought him in after giving Kelly 1-2 weeks to get right, then you're probably not too happy. I can see him top 8, but cannot see him improving his average to 115 (which is what you need to end up top-5 mid most years).

                    Interestingly enough, two other mids that were priced almost identically to Coniglio after round 3 have outperformed him by quite a bit: Ed Curnow, 592 points over that period; and Toby McLean, 558 points.

        smart as s · 15/05/2018 at 18:14

        out of curiosity, who r the 8 mids u would hav ahead of coniglio

          TommyC99 · 16/05/2018 at 22:02

          Danger, Fyfe, Oliver, titch, Dusty, crouch, Macrae, Cripps, Ablett, Jelwood should all average higher than cogs

      Ahmad rubas · 15/05/2018 at 18:30

      yeah good trade seems to be slowing down after the easier draw at the start of the season but seems to be slowing down should still be a solid m8

        smart as s · 15/05/2018 at 18:53

        I remember that geelong game, gws had a poor game, coniglio was let down by his team mates, but he still got 28 disposals and 5 tackles for a 64!

          Sc_Wow · 15/05/2018 at 18:56

          Cog was terrible in the Geelong game, every time he touched it he turned it over. Can’t blame his teammates for that

            smart as s · 15/05/2018 at 19:02

            yeah i think his disposal efficiency was around 30%, it was a bad game, but he still got 28 disposals, cant be too bothered about that game, he is still a fantastic proposition going forward im sure.

          Ahmad rubas · 15/05/2018 at 18:59

          his DE was terrible that game

I think o'meara was hard done by sc scoring on the weekend, given he scored almost twice in DT

Sandyf62 · 15/05/2018 at 17:56

I just did two rage trades, I'm sick of holding injured players, having them sitting on the bench not knowing when they will be back. So Walters > Oliver and Buddy > Bont, moved Fogarty to the fwd bench, my mids look way better now, with only one rookie left ( Kelly ) and he could be a keeper at M8 or M9. My defence will just have to cope for another week without any upgrades. Is this a good move or should I uprade my defence first which has four rookies onfield, plus Hurley under a injury cloud, I would probably get in Yeo and Simpson, or do that next week like I planned.

    Ja191 · 15/05/2018 at 18:14

    Walters will be back this week if not next, wasted trade. I see more warrant to the buddy trade but still would hold

      Russty_ · 16/05/2018 at 01:45

      Yeah I read he "wants" to come back in this week so he feels he's ready.
      Fogarty might have some good short term Job security too with McGovern and Walker injured.

    NoLanguage · 16/05/2018 at 01:19

    I have Walters too Sandy. Hold him for sure

    paul · 16/05/2018 at 09:58

    I am sticking with Buddy as I feel he and Sydney will have a really good second half to the season. Plus buddy at the end of last got a 160 & 180 his big is big.

    Sandyf62 · 16/05/2018 at 17:04

    Thanks for all the advice guys, I ended up going Naughton > Yeo and Walters > Oliver. Getting in Yeo covers Hurley and I really needed another premo mid as I still had three rookies on field in the mids, now two and trading out Walters meant I could still afford to upgrade next week as well. I was also worried that Walters might not get as much midfield time when he does come back, thinking they will ease him back into it.

BlueBaggerJosh · 15/05/2018 at 17:57

Doedee or Finlayson out is a topic almost all of us will be dealing with, I'm thinking Finlayson out this week as they have a harder game and Doedees spot is much more secure hopefully giving us an 80 or so

James · 15/05/2018 at 17:58

    Defying_Madness · 15/05/2018 at 18:34

    Depends on who you want to fill those slots with and how they are priced

    Russty_ · 15/05/2018 at 18:38

    The way the defensive rookies are going , I'd say fill up your defence, Yeo and Simmo or T-Mac.

Simon · 15/05/2018 at 18:40

Who’s better out of darling and hogan and why?

    RobDog · 15/05/2018 at 18:50

    Hogan, is running through the middle. Darling won't keep up the scoring when Kennedy hits form.

      Tyruddanaut · 15/05/2018 at 20:40

      Darling is the one that they are delivering to. It doesn’t have as much to do with form as you think. But I agree with Hogan anyway.

    seen_burns · 15/05/2018 at 20:23

    Hogan is 60k cheaper

StevoRivo · 15/05/2018 at 18:58

Nice podcast gents. Liked the guest from Fantasy Insider too. Liked the Rose Ceremony. If it came down to one defender choice, who gets the rose? Yeo or Webster?

And did I not hear that future “special guests” may be coming? 🀫

hedski · 15/05/2018 at 19:00

My trades were gonna be Finlayson and the Dood to Simmo and Howe (couple $k short of Yeo).
Been scared off Howe now with his hammy scans.
I think it might be time to smash Billings out of my team (finally).
Fin to Simmo √
Shittings to Hogan? (Keeps some $ in the kitty, could swap Simmo to Yeo) or Shittings to Menegola?
Cheers lads.

    INPieman · 15/05/2018 at 20:30

    I don't think you can run the risk of bringing in a bloke that went for scans on his hammy. If it was GWS he'd be named, then a late out, & then out for 6 months. Don't take that risk

      hedski · 15/05/2018 at 20:56

      Yeah reversed trades quick sticks when I heard that mate.
      Another option is Lukey R. Would allow me to get Yeo before Simmo.
      Had Hurley, Yeo and Simmo as my targets, bit worried about Hurley now.
      Been trying to punt Billings for weeks, not sure I can hold back this week, don't care how much he's lost, he's just so shit.

    Tyruddanaut · 15/05/2018 at 20:39

    Consider Webster. He looks the goods and has a high scoring role. Slightly cheaper than Simmo, which means you can also get in Yeo. Simmo has a BE of 100+ anyway. He’ll be underneath 500k next week. Hopefully another shocker.
    If you don’t have Hurley, he’ll probably be better anyway for a future option

      hedski · 15/05/2018 at 20:48

      I think I'll leave Webster alone Ty, have Savage already and have been trying to offload Billings for a while, shit just keeps poppin up. Will no doubt get Phillips next week, that'll do me for saints this year I reckon.

Lazza · 15/05/2018 at 19:09

    Tyruddanaut · 15/05/2018 at 20:37

      GO CROWS! top 12 here we come lol
      Just a shocking year

        Beezneez · 16/05/2018 at 15:13

        Means opportunity for other players to step up. I really rate Alex Keath who will be back from injury – although a defender he can play forward and take a grab. Gibson, Riley Knight, Cheney and Curtly Hampton also off injury list soon. Hopefully Brad Crouch and Rory Sloane can get back on the park sooner rather than later.

PizzaSafety · 15/05/2018 at 19:13

What are peoples thought on Robbie Gray if he spends more time forward? I picked him up cheap last year but his time in the forward line impacted his scoring potential, although that would also have been due to his groin issues. I still think he'll play 40% midfield if Rockliff keeps up his form so a 100+ avg should still happen, might mean you can pick him up cheaper though.

    SC_Sixty6 · 15/05/2018 at 19:15

    People that got him rd 2 won't be concerned because they are Infront with his big scores. If you got him in now I'd be alittle concerned with rocky performing well in the mid against crows. Time will tell. Will still AVG over 95.

      PizzaSafety · 15/05/2018 at 19:26

      I agree, people who picked him instead of Billings at the start of the year (worst pick I think I'll ever make) would be incredibly happy, the reason I didn't pick him was because of my concern he'd play predominantly forward. Looks to be moving a lot better this year though and averaged 91 last year playing less than 35% midfield so you'd think he'd be pretty close to 100. Not sure who the second player to jump on will be after Dangerfield when it's time for Fritsch and Higgins to leave my side in the next few weeks (already started Sicily, Heeney and McLean) but time will tell with a few others looking good.

    smart as s · 15/05/2018 at 19:33

    Don't worry about where he will play, will be top forward this year, very good form and a fantastic player to have in your team.

      PizzaSafety · 15/05/2018 at 19:38

      The only problem is he plays pretty deep in the forward line when forward, meaning that he will have lower games when he faces a defender such as Grimes or Jetta.

        DavidSA · 15/05/2018 at 20:12

        Got Gray rd2 as well and will look into picking up 2 more Port players after their bye to cure the 3 bye rounds especially that R14 disaster. 1 of the 2 new Port boys will be for cash gen if Hinkley got a clue and he bloody plays like he should.

    Tyruddanaut · 15/05/2018 at 20:35

    Nah. Now way. Even with a 100 avg from now on, he will drop in price plenty. Wait and assess

      INPieman · 15/05/2018 at 21:10

      4 scores last year of 45 or under. 50 shades played as a Fwd this week. And if he didn't kick a goal he'd have another sub 45 to his name. Yet Rocky had 31 touches in the guts. If you don't own Gray then wait & see. What 50 shades did last week was extraordinary. Hope he keeps it up

StevoRivo · 15/05/2018 at 19:58

22 trades & $80k. Have the Sicily/Keefe swing and have Petracca sitting at F4, doing my head in. So is it…

1. Naughton & Petracca to Yeo & Phillips;
2. Naughton & Doedee to Yeo & ? Cumming?

Both rooks carry the 1 game risk though will be bench only for now.

    PizzaSafety · 15/05/2018 at 20:29

    I'd vote 1, better to get rid of Petracca and use that money going forward than risk him losing more cash.

    Tyruddanaut · 15/05/2018 at 20:34

    You don’t have to trade Naughton this week if you have bench cover. Going a week early is often not a good idea.
    If you do have to trade, Phillips is the only one worth trading in

      StevoRivo · 15/05/2018 at 20:54

      Defence bench cover for Naughton is Murray & Duman. F5& F6 are Spargo & Higgins.
      Also have 3 defender rooks on field.

      Could hold also but see Yeo as a real opportunity now and need the 2 trades to get him in.

2 Premo deffenders or 1 premo defender and 1 premo mid?

    Tyruddanaut · 15/05/2018 at 20:32

    Depends on your structures. Try to equalize them so you have the same amount of spare spaces, but keep more spare in defense if there is only one spot difference.
    Eg. If you have 4 premium defenders and 6/7 premium mids, go 1 each. If you have 3 premium defenders and 7 premium mids. Go a double in def

    r_calve · 16/05/2018 at 09:23

    he is a key position player that can play in the ruck and the midfield and his lowest score is 86 and Weidman will get dropped this week so he will play more ruck

Hurn has been going at an unsustainably ridiculous kicking efficiency that came grounding to a halt last week and was the main reason for his scoring since R16 last year. His kick to handball ratio might also be unsustainable. Webster could be a fantastic pick but could you trust him?

    Defying_Madness · 15/05/2018 at 21:50

    I'd put Sicily down back and get a forward instead

      TOPHAWK1 · 15/05/2018 at 21:55


        Sam_01 · 16/05/2018 at 08:37

        I was considering doing that I have fristch and Spargo to flick out of my fwd line, will bring in gray after his bye, and probably Walters when he gets back from injury who is the last person I bring in up fwd? I be had my eye on Mundy

          Sc_Wow · 16/05/2018 at 08:56

          Do you have heeney?
          Heeney Mundy Walters will make round 14 very tough.
          Especially since you have savage in defence and are considering Webster. I’m also sure you would have a few rd14 bye guys in the midfield too.

            Sam_01 · 16/05/2018 at 09:24

            Heeny will be my only fwd to miss rnd 14, so bringing in Mundy isn’t to bad as I can bench cover Atleast one of them.
            Do we know when Walters will be back?
            I just want to jump on a premo this week!
            Danger, dusty and Fyfe to miss rnd 14 will trade ftkelly by then!

              Sc_Wow · 16/05/2018 at 09:29

              Walters back this week or next.
              Yeah so with all the trades you’ve mentioned you will have
              Laird Savage Webster
              Danger Dusty Fyfe
              Heeney Walters Mundy
              Not sure how well you’ll be able to cover that.
              I’ve only got laird those three in the mid and heeney and I’ll struggle

                Sam_01 · 16/05/2018 at 09:36

                Sorry I wasn’t being clear wow! It was a toss up of who to bring in, I don’t have Webster or Mundy yet! So just laird and sav to miss rd 14, mids as mentioned and currently just heeny up fwd.
                with Walters coming back I’ll wait to jump on him after his price drop. Will only need 100k to upgrade fristch to him. That being said I can do one up one down both weeks and maximise my premo output. Might have to just run the injury cloud risk with Howe if I want a premo this week all things considered

Simon · 15/05/2018 at 22:35

I still have Toby Greene and he is expected to be back in 2-3 weeks… I don’t want to trade because then it sets me back a week with The trades I had originally planned.. thoughts?

    Browncow · 15/05/2018 at 23:59

    The dilemma Simon is that if he misses rounds 9-11 the doc may say “do I let him play against Gold Coast or give him another 2 weeks rest including the round 13 bye”. Possibility you don’t see Toby until round 14. If you can trade him up to whoever you are missing out of Oliver, Danger etc then at least you salvage an extra 20ppg for less than 100K even if he comes back in. You can paint the fence with forwards but much harder to find cash for premo mids.

    FFC · 16/05/2018 at 11:27

    How many trades do you have? I got rid of him a while back. Consideration is needed for getting team premo/scoring.

Pauly · 15/05/2018 at 22:43

R.gray or T.mclean or J.darling can afford all or do i move sicliy dpp and bring yeo or simmo

    Derek · 16/05/2018 at 00:30

    gray Has a bye next week, wait

      r_calve · 16/05/2018 at 09:21


Tristan · 15/05/2018 at 23:35

Going doodee to yeo. Leaves me 18 trades do i use another one and trade out petracca now as i dont see him in my top 6 fwds at the end of season and thinkn of getting r.gray in after his bye. He spent a lot of time fwd though in the showdown. Is his role changed back to the fwd line now that rocky and spp and back in the middle?

3lostboys · 16/05/2018 at 00:22

DEF: Laird, Yeo, Lloyd, Witherden, Doedee, Murray (Coff, O'connor)

MID: Fyfe, Danger, Titch, Cripps, Cogs, Gibbs, TKelly, Banfield (Brayshaw, Crowden, Barry)

RUCK: Grundy, Gawn (McIerny)

FWD: Gray, Mclean, Sicily, Heeny, Fritsch, Waterman (Spargo, Guelfi)

50k and 16 trades left. Help me please lads! Was thinking of going banfield to phillips and then doedee to a mid or def premo like at 550k or under via sicily or crowden.

    NoLanguage · 16/05/2018 at 01:12

    Doedee to Simmo or you could go to Keeffe opening up the FWD/DEF swing with Sicily and upgrade Banfield to a fallen premo (JPK, Crouch etc)

    Russty_ · 16/05/2018 at 01:57

    NL's options are good but I'd be tempted to hold off on trading, otherwise you'll have 14 trades left for 14 rounds of SC, dangerous.
    Phillips has another game to play yet to see if it was a fluke or not.
    If Doodoo spuds it again, maybe do it next week?

    Sc_Wow · 16/05/2018 at 09:04

    Still a fair way off full premo with that amount of trades left.
    You will be left with 4 trades if you go 1up 1down to get that full premo team

NoLanguage · 16/05/2018 at 01:09

Hey legends, that time of week again πŸ™‚

B – Laird, Savage, Hibberd, Doedee, Finlayson, Naughton (Richards, Mirra)
M – Fyfe, Cripps, Touch, Dusty, Coniglio, Merrett, Parker, Kelly (Walters INJ, Barry, Mutch)
R – Gawn, Martin (Cameron)
F – McLean, Sicily, Heeney, Smith, Fritsch, Spargo (Henry, Guelfi)

21 trades, $182k in the bank.

Thinking Naughton to Keeffe and Doedee to Yeo. Still leaves me with $170k and if Walters comes back next week only 4-5 off full premo.

Any thoughts or suggestions appreciated as always πŸ™‚

    Russty_ · 16/05/2018 at 02:01

    Pull the trigger mate sounds good, I did a backline double upgrade this week, cause I saved a da money, good side, are you planning to get Dangermouse in anytime soon?
    Hope Walters gets back for you this week..

      NoLanguage · 16/05/2018 at 18:53

      Thanks Russty πŸ™‚ Yeah obviously wanna get Danger in but been holding off due to his form, if Zerrett and Parker come good I'm hoping to upgrade Kelly to Danger as my last mid upgrade! How you going trades wise?

    BadgerHoney7 · 16/05/2018 at 10:13

    downgrade naughton down to cumming, doedee up to yeo, week after richards down to a rookie and then finlayson up to simmo, week after that henry down to maybe ahern if he starts playing and than fritsch to robbie gray, will leave you with a nice side before byes and only one rookie, cumming.

      NoLanguage · 16/05/2018 at 18:56

      Thanks Badger! Reason I'm leaning towards Keeffe is to open up the FWD/DEF swing with Sicily, plus I hate bringing in blokes after one game. What's your reasoning behind Cumming, better player? Aside from that great advice pretty much the plan I had πŸ™‚

        BadgerHoney7 · 16/05/2018 at 19:06

        sorry mate, forgot about keeffe, thats the right option, this will then allow allow you to go cumming/ridley next week for richards. your team is looking very nice.

NoLanguage · 16/05/2018 at 01:16

Doedee or Finlayson for Yeo? Reasons for and against either??

    Russty_ · 16/05/2018 at 02:08

    Probs Doodoo first, looks like he needs a rest..and scoring has dived, Finlayson's has too though.

    r_calve · 16/05/2018 at 09:21

    get webster or tmac, yeo is at max price so wait a bit more

      r_calve · 16/05/2018 at 09:21

      but Finlayson

      Defying_Madness · 16/05/2018 at 15:20

      Webster and tmac wont be top 6 but yeo will be. Go for the top 6 lock

        NoLanguage · 16/05/2018 at 18:50

        Yeah definitely going Yeo

    BadgerHoney7 · 16/05/2018 at 10:10

    doedee, higher b/e

    Beezneez · 16/05/2018 at 15:22

    Doedee has higher B/E and set to lose money. However, last week I believe he played a shutdown role on R Gray which didn't help the intercept points he usually accumulates.- should have been Luke Brown on Gray. I got rid of Finlayson last week to effect a trade to Crouch. Thinking of trading Murray before Doedee this week cos I also have Appleby (think can score similar to Murray if he holds his spot which I believe he should although he copped couple of nasty knocks).

HammerTime · 16/05/2018 at 02:10

completely irrlevant community, but Cam Ellis-Yolmen is a pick i was really happy with, was like 270k or something and is now going to rise to 500 odd πŸ™‚ cheers

    Russty_ · 16/05/2018 at 02:23

    Not irrelevant if you have him Hammertime :), I picked him up for 265K too when Armitage spudded and then got dropped, he's done well for us but it might be time to move him on soon, doubt he will make much more cash unless he busts out a few more 120's.
    Like the way he goes about his Footy though.

      Crowboy94 · 16/05/2018 at 14:33

      Wish I had of jumped on him. Knew he would be a decent scorer as he loves getting in for the contested ball.

Kezj13 · 16/05/2018 at 06:20

then petracca to menegola or Westoff? 181k odd left itb

    FFC · 16/05/2018 at 10:03

    I think you have a few options.
    -Swing Heeney FWD – correct weakness in FWD line, put premo MID in
    -Flick Naughton to Yeo/Simpson or other Premo Option

    What are you doing with Billings?

Finnius · 16/05/2018 at 09:02

Should I consider Crossley this week for ruck cover and potential future cash?

    Sam_01 · 16/05/2018 at 11:15

    Since you have Gawn nicnat same as me, you can look for other better rookies as we don’t have them both out in the same bye. Don’t think of the cover just think would you bring him in as a rookie for cash generation, for me it’s a no unless I could downgrade English to him, but I don’t have english

Steeeve · 16/05/2018 at 10:09

Wanting to bring in Crossley but two important questions have to be answered first.
1. How long is Lynch out for?
2. Any chance English returns for the Dogs?

    Sam_01 · 16/05/2018 at 11:13

    I’d say English will return at some point and they put boyd up fwd, English played well for them. Lot of new kids getting a run at suns and I think they like Crossley over there I’d say he hangs around for a bit longer might get dropped off their bye though that’s the only problem

      Steeeve · 16/05/2018 at 14:13

      Yeah I'd imagine with Day, Wright and Lynch available there is no room for Crossley.

Anyone have any advice?


    Sam_01 · 16/05/2018 at 11:12

    As said in the pod, naughton won’t drop in cash, if you have cover don’t worry, cull the rookies that have peaked to get the most cash generation out of them look for upgrade targets/down
    How much cash you got who you looking at getting in? Doedee and finlay have to go soon if you want the most out of them!

            Yeah nothing really you can do man! If your playing for leagues which you would have to be now, I’d probably recommend trading Holman down and Stephenson up?

              Goat · 16/05/2018 at 16:15

              Holman is likely to play this week and has an early bye. Trade him out when he is about to have his bye. Get rid of Naughton because his "0" will hinder cash generation even when he returns in 3 weeks. Unless you are happy to hold him for 4-5 weeks he has to go this week.

    Goat · 16/05/2018 at 13:20

    As I don't agree there is no point, I will offer – all focus on holding the cash gained by your defensive rookies (by trading out before they drop or a.s.a.p. if they score at present levels) and upgrading your forwards and that Spargo mid spot. I would look at Stephenson down to Ronke (I would not usually recommend him but he will gain $$ in short time more than anyone else at that price point) Naughton down to (say) Keeffe and play Coffield. Gains you about $300K for a $350K bank into next week. Trade out the highest rookies and go 1 up and 1 down every week until the end of the byes. Burn trades and try and get some balance in your side for value – there are a lot of fallen premiums atm and you have more trades than most left.

blakeyboi · 16/05/2018 at 11:17

    simpson is probably best value

        One then the other.

        Danger is 30k more and has a be of 119. Oliver be is about 75.

        So Oliver this week, Danger next week.

        But don’t be surprised if Danger scores well over 150 this week, there were promising signs last game.

        If your plan is only to get 1, then Danger.

    Lazza · 16/05/2018 at 11:32

    You don't need to trade Naughton this week … his price wont change whereas Finlayson probably will drop with a BE of 85. .. best to wait a week for Phillips, or if you must trade, trade out Finlayson instead.

      Trades · 16/05/2018 at 11:52

      I'd rather have Finlayson on and coffield bench rather than coffield on field.
      Finlayson just needs to clean up his play a bit for a big score

      Are you suggesting downgrade Holman to Philips & upgrade to Yeo?

Havin a crack · 16/05/2018 at 13:14

Long time reader, second time with a question for the community.
I’m am lucky enough to be able to do a double upgrade this week but I’m really struggling to confirm my to targets.
Yeo and simmo or danger and simmo.
I don’t have enough for danger and yeo.
But my actual question to ya’s is,
Is danger a must have this year?

    Sam_01 · 16/05/2018 at 13:24

    Very hard to call if danger is a must this year, has spent a lot of time fwd and has still notched up good scores. That being said he has been battling a few niggles and looks set to go bang, but we have been saying this from the start haha! Can’t go wrong with yeo and simmo if you want a safe bet, nothing wrong with that at all. More a question of if you think danger will take his game to the highs of last year? Even if he sits around this 115 av mark I’ll still be relatively happy with him I’ve had him since the start

      DacZawson · 16/05/2018 at 14:45

      Danger averaging 115 would put him close to the top 5 scorers anyway, surely he'll boost that average as the season goes on.
      He's a must have for mine.

    INPieman · 16/05/2018 at 13:30

    Have a look at the Cats upcoming fixtures. Danger will dine out

    NEIL demons delight · 16/05/2018 at 16:39

    Definitely a must have The next few weeks will go nuts Undoubtably no. 1 but can't say that about Dusty in fact probably wont get him now. cheers NDD

    Sandyf62 · 16/05/2018 at 16:44

    Danger hasn't been a must so far, but he is now good value, if I hadn't started with him I would be getting him in this week or next at the latest. So Danger and Simmo for me.

Havin a crack · 16/05/2018 at 13:49

Thanks guys
Yea I am aware of the cats next few games and that’s one of the reasons I’m thinking is this the week to pounce?
I’ve kept my last two mid posies for both danger and dusty to be included at their basement price which i se danger is at now but with the inclusion of Kelly and Ablett into a already strong midfield I feel he will continue floating between the forward line and the guts.
Yes a 115av is nuffin to complain about but is he still a captain opportunity?

    Sam_01 · 16/05/2018 at 13:57

    Be shaky on captaining him I’ve vice captained him this week hasn’t shown enough yet to give me faith to captain him each week just chuck the captain on Gawn i should’ve done so the last few weeks hahah!

      Havin a crack · 16/05/2018 at 14:19

      Is something wrong with me?
      I woulda thought I’d make the trade Sunday night and had the first week off since January not worrying about my team and what I should do.
      And it’s danger of all people, why am I like this?
      Surely it’s not because I hate Geelong so much?or is it

    Dodoio · 16/05/2018 at 15:09

    Danger will go berserk against a weak non tagging Essendon. Sometimes however, following the sacling of a coach, the players put in a little more.

      Defying_Madness · 16/05/2018 at 15:15

      People said the same thing against the Saints lmao

    JugHead · 16/05/2018 at 15:29

    There are a few things to consider when choosing a captain, but I place a lot of weight on current form. On that basis, Gawn and Fyfe are ahead of Danger as captains at the moment. But it doesnt mean it will stay that way.
    Also, just my opinion, but I think Danger and Dusty will spend more time in the guts at the business end of the season.

    Havin a crack · 16/05/2018 at 17:55

    Thanks again fellas

DacZawson · 16/05/2018 at 14:36

Tough decision to make this week regarding upgrades.
First trade I'll go Naughton to Yeo.
Second trade I'll upgrade Finlayson to any forward or midfielder.

I have Danger, Mitchell, Fyfe, Oliver, Coniglio, Whitfield, Heeney, McLean, Taranto, Billings.

Was thinking of going to Cripps for a mid or Menegola for a forward.
Anyone I should heavily consider? Byes aren't too much of a problem given I have a decent spread.

Rick · 16/05/2018 at 15:57

What are the best moves to make this round? 21 Trades and $300K. Cheers
DEF: Laird, Simpson, Shaw, Doedee, Murray, Cole (Naughton, L Murphy)
MID: Fyfe, Danger, Titch, Dusty, Cogs, T Kelly, Petracca, Holman (Barry, Brayshaw, Spargo)
RUC: Gawn, NicNat (Olango)
FWD: Heeney, Maclean, Sicily, D Smith, Billings, Henry (Guelfi, Fritsch)

    ErrolBurns · 16/05/2018 at 22:30

RUCK: Gawn Nicnat (Organo)

FWD: Mundy D Smith Billings Ronke Fritsch Henry (Giles Langdon, Guelfi)
450k in Bank what should i do Naughton to who and might get doedee out as well what two defs in tho

    ErrolBurns · 16/05/2018 at 22:29

    Billings for McLean doedee to yeo you should have enough money for that

Big V · 16/05/2018 at 16:27

Hurley out for around 2 weeks with hammy..
Stick or Twist ?

    Sandyf62 · 16/05/2018 at 16:47

    Stick,I have enough problems with rookies maxing out, Hurley is a defence premo, put him on the bench till he comes back.

NEIL demons delight · 16/05/2018 at 16:29

Tracca will never be a relevant supercoach player though will emerge as a quality member of our premiership side. why? Hasn't got a tank and doesn't kick goals and a poor shot at that.. It remains to be seen if he can develop but chances are he is doomed to a JACK WATTS role only my opinion cheers NDD

John · 16/05/2018 at 16:33

DEF: Laird Hurley Finlayson Doedee Murrary Naughton (Duman Murphy)

MID: Fyfe Cripps Titch Danger Zerret Oliver T.Kelly Brayshaw (Walters O'connor Barry)

RUCK: Gawn Nic Nat (Mcinerney)

FWD: McLean Sicily Heeney Billings Fritsch Garlett (Spargo Guelfi)

With 21 trades and 281k, What is the best way to upgrade naughton to yeo?

Campbell · 16/05/2018 at 17:00

I need some help with my team. I have 24k in the bank and 21 trades left.
This is my team and i have some serious problems.

Laird, Sicily, Simpson, Hibberd, Doedee, Murray – Naughton, Keefe
Martin, Fyfe, Oliver, Cripps, Mitchell, Coniglio, T Kelly, Holman – Brayshaw, Spargo, Barry
Gawn, Jacobs – D Cameron
Heeney, Hogan, D Smith, Billings, Fristch, Higgins – Henry, Waterman

Was thinking about trading two out of Doedee, Murray, Billings or Holman. Also worried about the underperformance of Sam Jacobs. Who to trade and who should i get for them. I need some help!

    ErrolBurns · 16/05/2018 at 22:27

    Jacobs not playing this week I also have him I’m either upgrading to Sinclair or Sandilands

BadgerHoney7 · 16/05/2018 at 17:17

Clarke and Ridley playing on the weekend for the Dons, lets hope Guelfi is their as well

Macca · 16/05/2018 at 18:24

How about the mad Irishman and/or Johnny Bruyen over the next couple of weeks for the ideas on things so far…..

blakeyboi · 16/05/2018 at 19:11

OUT Hurley ($519,700) INMacrae ($676,400)
OUT Finlayson ($345,300) IN Simpson ($501,000)

    r_calve · 16/05/2018 at 21:23

    man, Hurley is only out for a week so hold off

John · 16/05/2018 at 19:11

Whats keeffe's JS like?

    r_calve · 16/05/2018 at 21:24

    should be okay for now while Patton is playing crap but once all the injured players come back he is gone

taylor · 16/05/2018 at 19:30

OUT Doedee ($355,300) IN Yeo ($531,300)
OUT Finlayson ($345,300) IN Simpson ($501,000)
have to go double defenders because hurley isnt playing

should i get sicily over one of the two?

    r_calve · 16/05/2018 at 21:24


    Russty_ · 16/05/2018 at 22:02

    Hi Taylor, I'd go Yeo and Sicily, Simmo is still good but he is 47 years old.

    Defying_Madness · 16/05/2018 at 22:19

    Whichever ones you think are at their cheapest price for a while. You will need all 3 come the end of the season.

Ando · 16/05/2018 at 21:49

Can Tuohy be a decent option for the rest of the season? Started the season solidly but has been average recently.

Would be a straight swap with Finlayson. Has dropped $123K since the start of the season and is very durable.


    Blueth · 16/05/2018 at 22:28

    Boy was raised on potato turnovers. Pass

ErrolBurns · 16/05/2018 at 22:26

Well I had this great trade that would bring me Elliot yeah but Sam Jacobs just been out in bout to play the only team in the league without a ruckman (the bulldogs who I barrack for) so thinking Finlayson out for Cummings or Ed Phillips or Keefe whoever but then trading Jacobs out for Sinclair Or Sandilands can’t go Grundy since I have Gawn and they have the same bye round.
So Sinclair or Sandilands?

Sean · 17/05/2018 at 05:42

Need suggestions? Slammed at work and don't have much time to research things before lockout. Naughton out, Hurley hurt Nank???

21 Trades Left

John · 17/05/2018 at 06:02

Hi community
I have a conundrum – which cheapie mid to pick at around 450K?
Adams, Parker or Mundy (M/F).
Any advice would be hugely appreciated.

    TheResurrection · 17/05/2018 at 08:14

    Don’t really want any “cheap premiums” in the mids John. If you absolutely have to, I’d go Mundy, then swing him forward & get a stronger mid in when you’ve got the $$

Rocket · 17/05/2018 at 08:40

Thoughts on Hurley > Webster and O'Meara to Oliver… Only leaves 6K in bank with 18 trades…

    Taylor · 17/05/2018 at 09:18

    Don't trade Hurley he will only be out a week or two

Chicken · 17/05/2018 at 12:00

Clayton Oliver or Matt Crouch?

Ben · 17/05/2018 at 17:30

Those who have Hurley are you holding or trading? I'm holding on to him…

BVB21 · 17/05/2018 at 20:17

Wow – Good week for Murphy and Mirra to come back in 😊

Placey · 17/05/2018 at 20:55

Hey Guys,
Just wondering if should I get Sicily or Yeo and why?

NoLanguage · 17/05/2018 at 21:16

Will Mirra be in the 22 Hawk fans? Kinda hoping he won't so I can loop Richards tomorrow night

Garryowen · 18/05/2018 at 16:41

Any thoughts on Kane Lambert. Very tempted as a POD

Will · 20/05/2018 at 15:10

To everyone who started Whitfield over Cripps because you wanted a pod. Sucked in!

Filth Wizard · 22/05/2018 at 02:01

I have plenty of trades left (24) and would like thoughts on

1. Brayshaw (freo) to Phillips and Sauce (Has to go) to Naitanui leaves $145k or McKernan leaves $310k in the bank.

Naitanui yes a keeper or $310 cash to upgrade next few weeks to Dusty, Walters, Cripps etc. McKernan seems destined to play while Daniher is out which could be a while.

Abdul_Haquef · 26/12/2018 at 21:46

I genuinely enjoyed this. It was incredibly educational as well as useful. I will return to look at on upcoming posts. bestbatterypoweredleafblower
