Gday community, welcome back to another ground of Supercoach. This week is our free trial of the byes – ByesLite if you will – with no Gold Coast or Port Adelaide players available this week.

As discussed on the podcast, your Nick Holmans, Robbie Grays and Dom Barrys won’t be locked out until the final game on Sunday, making them the perfect captaincy loopholes. So – who should be those loopholes? Let’s find out.

WESTERN BULLDOGS vs COLLINGWOOD
7.50PM, Etihad Stadium

Jack Macrae. If you’ve got him, you VC him, simple as that. You don’t ignore a bloke who’s averaging 174 over his past three when he comes up against a side that haven’t tagged all season, and let Tom Mitchell rack up 247 possessions in round one. Lock him in.

If you’re one of the 82 per cent of sides without him but have Brodie Grundy, he’s your man. He demolished an underdone Kreuzer in round three and was all over Sam Jacobs against the Crows – I don’t reckon anyone the Dogs throw at this man can stop him and his pristine hair. Smokie for a 140.

Adam Treloar had a quiet weekagainst the Saints last week despite being my pick from that game. Maybe give him a miss this week, likewise with Scott Pendlebury, who despite being an excellent selection at $520k, doesn’t have the ceiling this season to get the Big C.

RICHMOND vs ST KILDA
1.45PM, MCG

If ever there was a side that was going to play Dustin Martin back into form, it’s the hapless Saints. Dusty cracked his first ton in a month last week, ending a four-game dry spell. If you’re bringing him in this week for a bargain-basement $492k, why not throw the VC on him? I’d personally be reticent to throw the captaincy on him considering his five-round average of 86.6, as I’d rather have the backup in case he does play forward.

Elsewhere in this game, Jimmy Webster has a three round average of 114 and could do you well, but I wouldn’t expect much more than a 105 from him. No-one else really on offer for mine, unless you’re very keen on The Nank, which I’m not. Doesn’t average well against the Saints has been rumoured to miss the last few games due to niggles, so pass.

BRISBANE vs SYDNEY
4.35PM, The Gabba

God I love the Lions. They’re plucky, they give it their all, they play a nice brand of footy to watch and they’re bubbly. Also – sidenote – if you missed Dayne Beamspresser on handing the captaincy over, go and give it a watch. I wouldn’t put him down as an option for the captaincy or trade in just yet. The last time he played Sydney he scored 152, but that was three years ago and he’s only tonned up thrice this season.

The man he handed the captaincy over to, Dayne Zorko is a man I’d be looking to hand my side’s captaincy to as well, if I had him. He’s played himself back into form over the past three with an average of 135, and may thrive in a contested game with the Swans. However, he could also drop a 70. Captain at your own risk.

For the bloods, Isaac Heeney‘s last three have netted him an average of just 90, so I’ll pass there. Jake Lloyd is coming off a 170-odd and looks the man in form, but the man all eyes will be on is Lance Franklin. Back in the side and fresh off a 117, Buddy is BACK. How his battle with Harris Andrews goes will shape if he has an 80 or a 180. Could go either way, so hold onto your hats!

GEELONG vs CARLTON
7.25PM, GMHBAPQEZ Stadium

I can’t keep track of the new names for Kardinia Park. Maybe it’s just me getting old, but I don’t know what they call it these days? GMHBA? Aren’t they putting them in vegetables now to turn the frogs gay?

Not that they’re anything wrong with frogs being gay, mind you. They’re entitled to their sexual proviclivites. Let there be a thousand blossoms bloom, but I won’t be spending any more time on it because every two weeks Carlton Football Club get torn to pieces by a club that isn’t Essendon.

Carlton are not playing Essendon this week. Patrick DangerfieldJoel Selwood and Gary Ablett could combine for three scores not seen since the glory days of Swan, Beams and Pendlebury at Collingwood. Throw a dart at any of them and put them as captain, but if you had to hope the dart landed on anyone, you’d want it to be Danger. Mitch Duncan is a smokie as well, if anyone has him.

Hell, Tim Kelly is likely to ton up this week.

Patrick Cripps is a bloody good footballer, and to Lek an Actual Real-Life God, but not even he can stand against the might of the Dangerwoodlettcanlly portmanteu. His last two against the Cats have been an 80-odd and a 60-odd. Give him a miss this week.

ESSENDON vs GWS
7.25PM, Spotless Stadium

This would have been billed as a belter Saturday night game in the drawing room of the AFL fixture HQ back in November, but I wager it could be far less than that. From a fantasy standpoint, Stephen Coniglio is only averaging 92 over his past five, which isn’t quite the enticing fact for captaincy selection.

That said, no-one at the Giants has done well over their past five games, Lachie Whitfield with the highest five round average of active players at 94. Tim Taranto, Dylan Shiel, Heath Shaw, Jeremy Cameron – they’ve all been bad. So pass on them.

Zach Merrett had another decent game against the Cats with 117, but something tells me he’ll be getting more attention this week and might not float your goat. If Michael Hurley is back he could be worth consideration, but at this stage word is he won’t be.

HAWTHORN vs WEST COAST
1.10PM, Etihad Stadium

Midfield gun Tom Mitchell should be all over this one and is currently my captain. Only averages 89 against the Eagles, but last time they clashed he came away with 127. If he plays – and please god let him play – Elliot Yeo – could be an option, but if I’m going an Eagles player it’s Jack Darling. Averaging 146 over his past three, and coming off a 180 if you don’t mind – he was unstoppable against the reigning premiers and flying high.

Nic Naitanui doesn’t love playing the Hawks but could be an interesting one to captain.

MELBOURNE vs ADELAIDE
3.20, The top of Uluru or something

See you in the NT for this one – Melbourne and Adelaide are going north.

There’s not much to see here in terms of captaincy option. Clayton Oliver we know broke his finger last week, so we won’t make the same mistake Lekdog did in captaining him, while Rory Laird hasn’t pumped out a big score in a while. Tom McDonald has had an easy run since his return, but I reckon the Dees’ downhill skiing stops here, and possibly so does his scoring.

Pass.

EDIT: I forgot Max Gawn. How could I forget Max Gawn? Captaincy option. Lock it in.

FREMANTLE vs NORF MELBOURNE
4.40, Optus Stadium

Fyfe is Lyfe, always – except when he’s getting tagged by Ben Jacobs. I won’t be touching him, even as there’s the slight chance he goes to Lachie Neale, but I don’t want a bar of this game in any sense of the word, meaning I’ll probably be watching every minute of it.

Get someone before this one.

PATCH’S TOP FIVE

Jack Macrae
Patrick Dangerfield
Dustin Martin
Tom Mitchell
Lance Franklin

Absolute smokie: Shaun McKernan

(Go on, Lek, you know you want to.)

Who are you captaining, community?

Agree. I'll be VC Macrae into either Mitchell or Gawn as C. Hopefully I don't need either though.

Grundy into Gawn this week. Jacob's is horrendous atm and I follow the crows. Gawn is too dominant and our midfield depending on who comes back in isn't thriving.

Finnius

same for me SC. Lock it in. Grundy against no ruckman is going to hopefully mean a big score on Friday night.

Danger into Gawn for me. Danger must go big sooner or later. I wanted to have a sneaky look at Kreuzer for VC, because in form he would eat whatever Geelong throw st him in the ruck, but I can’t miss the Danger train when it comes in. I know, it’s 2018 not 2017, but it’s hard to let Ho.

Keenbutclueless

Defying_Madness

People have been saying Danger is bound to go big each week and I have told people not to captain him.
Sure he will eventually probably go big but at what cost has that had on your team in previous weeks with quite a few mediocre captain scores.
Put the blind faith to rest and pick the players who are putting out huge captain scores in 2018.

Keenbutclueless

Laird, Sicily, Hurley, Savage, Mirra, Murphy – Keefe, Naughton Macrae, Fyfe, Cripps, Titch, Oliver, Dusty, Cogs, Kelly – Higgins, Garlett, Barry Gawn, NicNat – Crossley McLean, Heeney, Smith, Billings, Fritsch, Spargo – Henry, ZGL Need some advice on my next move. Got plenty of players I reckon is time to move on. Happy to keep Naughton place holding if he misses another week. Keeping Billings out of stubbornness. Which two rookies are most pressing to get rid of? Thinking Kelly to Danger to just finish the mids, and maybe get rid of Henry for Phillips via… Read more »

Or can wait til gaints play them and Greene will knock him one. That's a given

Off topic, and not a captaincy option atm, but is anyone at all considering Josh J Kennedy from West Coast as a trade in option loop hole F6/F7? $366k with a BE of 81.

SC_Sixty6

SC_Sixty6

Under done. Also at this time most people are looking for premos to perform. Maybe after the byes look for bargains as back up.

Hey johnno, could be the bargain of the year as Darling will get more attention from best defenders.

Some are considering Rocky but he's not the old gun we used to know.

Swans2012

He's been on my list for a few weeks now Johnno, just need a bit more of a form reversal and I'll be slipping him in I think….

I am considering it Johnno. I think it is a good spot. Can't jump on until after the byes but I think he will pump out some big scores soon.

He has less to worry about now. After byes he will go huge. Not for me though

SC_Sixty_6
Guest
SC_Sixty_6

His scoring has never been questioned, but has durability concerns. At under 500k, not a bad option.

Marty
Guest
Marty

Mentally doesn't appear to be coping with the death of his father. Surely that would affect his score too. Sad for him.

Everybody looking at bringing in the PIG Tommy Rockliff next week. I need a POD… can somebody please try to dissuade me from bringing in KING AARON HALL

Tyruddanaut

Tyruddanaut

Considering you called a quite inconsistent player, who averages 90 odd KING, you need to do something else

Swans2012
Guest
Swans2012

Consistency the problem but is cheap and PODness appeals, who knows? Could come good in byes, if only he was still m/f

Tyruddanaut

Tyruddanaut

TRADING in Franklin this week so chucking the VC/C in him. Danger, Gawn, mitchell or Fyfe could get the other

Ja191

Would def only be giving him the VC buddy into danger/gawn sounds good

I’m thinking about going a very underdone J Kelly into Mitchell.

Kelly, because no one has him, except for idiots like me.

Mitchell because I’m pretty sure come sunday I’ll be chasing points and everyone else will be on Gawn.

Patch. Might have missed this as it was hidden in the comments in the pod cast. Random came up with a fantastic idea for a segment on the pod cast called "lekdogs bark". Where lek tees off on under performing premos – hibberd and billings would be first in his sights. Could start with a dubbed deep bark "woof woof" then a snarl – welcome to lekdogs bark … Then off you go. Simliar to what they did with higgos quantum mechanics. Cracking idea for a new segment. Patch/lek make it happen. Whaddya reckon community? Thumbs up? <img draggable="false" class="emoji"… Read more »

Evening folks. What do you think of the following option?

Henry > McKernan then at say Gawn's bye round trade Olango out swing McKernan to ruck. After bye round trade out rookie fwd swing McKernan fwd and bring in non playing dpp ruck for cheap. Can either keep McKernan F6/7 and ruck swing or cash him in when his price max's.

Do you think it's a waste of valuable trades or worth the cash generation, bye cover and swing dpp options?

Sc_Wow

Swans2012

Swans2012

McKernan could become genuinely good f6/7 material and provide year long ruck cover, has always shown glimpses, worst case scenario for me has him making 100k over the next month and helping the byes

SageAdvisor
Guest
SageAdvisor

McKernan is only getting a game because Daniher is injured. He was killing it in VFL while Daniher spudding in AFL but couldn't get a game until Daniher's OE flared. Even if he ave 3 goals a week McKernan goes back to VFL as soon as Daniher comes back

Swans2012
Guest
Swans2012

Disagree if he keeps doing what he has done, players playing well keep playing, like I said worst case he provides some ruck cover and makes some cash the next month with joe out. He is a much better 2nd ruck than joe imo

Hey Community

I'm currently ranked in the top 100 and DON'T HAVE MACRAE. I could trade him in this week but the question is do I need him. If I don't trade him in I would be getting Danger instead plus 100k extra cash to use on future upgrades.

This week I'm gonna put the VC on who ever I bring in and the C on Gawn.

Sc_Wow
Guest
Sc_Wow

You got me by a few points brock. We’re both still right up there, 100k is quite a lot at this time of the year and could be the difference between getting a 500k defence upgrade or a 400k so just think about how your upgrades are looking

Brock

Yeah it was a close match. We only had a few different players and I was getting a bit nervous when Higgins was a late out but in the end I just got the win.

Great work on your season, Brock. If i may make a humble suggestion and say bank some cash and get danger. I reckon the Mactrain left the station three or four weeks ago. If you’ve got cash and trades toward the end, and Jmac is still pumping, he may get you over the line. Good luck👍🏻

Would like your best trade moves this week. Any player I should bring in relation to Byes? Thanks

DEF: Laird, Simpson, Shaw, Yeo, Doedee, Murray, (Cole, 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)

Have you considered Murray to Josh Kennedy WCE. Only need $30k.

Gemma

Interesting move. Do you think I need to generate more cash. Is Phillips a must have for a downgrade or could you consider Josh Kennedy a Premo for W/Coast in the FWD line

Mick

20 trades is a lot at this stage of the season, we’ll done. You need to start painting the fence, one up and one down. Move either Brayshaw or Henry this week to Phillips or Smith and then Petracca or T Kelly. Also play fritsch on the field over Billings at the moment.

Maverick_

who'd of dreamt at the start of the season we could be downgrading T.Kelly (420k) to Rocky (375k) at the byes hahaha

TheGreatBozza

Was in my team pre-season prior to his indiscretion, which was a saving grace. He's not getting the mid time since he's been damaging as a forward. As such relying on big bags to boost his score which won't happen every week. Pass for now

Dildor
Guest
Dildor

Keep in mind he kicked 6 goals for 113 points, from only 13 disposals. He aint gonna kick 6 from 13 every week, could have easily been 60. He scores well when collingwood wins. They're not that great IMO so i wouldn't expect him to be a premium forward, likely one of those in between men around 85-90 ave. Just my 2 cents, could be way off.

Maybe cash in one of the mid rookies this week for Phillips and look to strengthen your bye structure with Rocky, Westoff or Boak next week.

Or double downgrade this week (would have to go early on Smith or one of the bomber boys, which is a risk), Swing Sicily into the back and upgrade Murray to Westoff or Boak, then upgrade a midfielder as well.

Have Laird Hurley and Yeo in defence. Can't make my mind up who to bring in out of Simpson Webster Howe or Lloyd. Simmo was original pick but his scoring has dropped off a little with only 3 tons this year. I like Webster who has had only one score under 100 in round one. I've had Lloyd in previous years and can be a little up and down although his last couple are Macrae like. Also, he is expected to rise about $47k. Gone off Howe a little. Lloyd seems to be the flavour of the week. None of… Read more »

I just read that too Russty. I wont be getting him at all this year after this revelation, I still have the scars from Sandi's Turf Toe.
He's only managed 4 games after missing 5 and now in doubt for this week, wont play on the hard Alice Springs deck, and obviously now questionable reliability for the rest of the year. Damn

Off topic but, Do you reckon that Marvel might have a go at updating a few of the mascots to go with their stadium? I'm keen to see what they'd come up with for the Bombers, that winged hypodermic needle is a bit embarrassing nowadays considering their recent history. What do you reckon Marvel would come up with for the Bombers? 6 black and red terrorists with fire crackers would certainly liven things up

Russty I broke my big toe and it has never been the same. I have missed 4-6 games per season for the last 5 years because of it being sore or uncomfortable.

Hey Ranger, I saw that but why would a professional AFL player, who's just returned from a 5 week Toe injury, be wearing ill fitting Boots?…I reckon when there's doubt on a player, for an injury or whatever, best off avoiding them and maybe avoiding trading all-together for the week.

Bont into Cripps for me.
Official request to Madam Luck was
All of the Pies to be concentrating on Macrae as Bont gets 34disp, kicks 6 has 20 hitouts due to Grundy doing a hammy in Q1and scores 200SC
All of the cats mids to be too full of themselves to bother tackling crippler who responds with 40 contested possessions and scores 200SC.
Mitchell and Fyffe to be tagged to 15 disposals each and max to stumble to 105

I sort of need a huge unique Captains score this week

r_calve
Guest
r_calve

(Garlett,Barry,England) Rucks: Gawn and Nic Nat (Cameron) Forwards; McLean,D.Smith,Billings,Franklin,Stephenson,Fritsch. (Rayner and Crowden) Any thoughts for my team?

redherringfc
Guest
redherringfc

Are you sure you want Witherden? You are basically trading Kelly for him and Kelly is probably going to outscore him. It seems like a wasted trade. I’d look for a player with a higher output.

If you have a dpp to use as a swingman then look for a gun mid. Otherwise i’d be considering Simpson, Lloyd or Howe.

If it was my team I’d be keeping Kelly and trading out players who are scoring poorly week in week out, and who have maxed out in value, like Crowden.

Russty_
Guest
Russty_

With your midfield, I'd be keeping Tim Kelly, he's one of your better midfielders, may as well keep Murray (maybe not apparently he's been omitted) with Witherden averaging 64 in the last 3 rounds.
you have 3 rookies and Robinson who should probably be in your forward line in your mids..and you still have Billings.
No point having 515k in the bank with 4 upgrades in your mids needed.
No offence…just observing.

Grundy or Danger into Maxy for me.

Defying_Madness
Guest
Defying_Madness

I think it might help his scoring but when I look at his scores this year a lot of them were average. I think if you had him in previously to his big scores you would be happy but bringing him in now doesn't sound like the best idea as I doubt he will score 170 again. A bit of point chasing for people who buy him now at an increased price.
Go with simpson imo

At least Crouch is back. MIght be better to get a full premo backline before any other line given the defenders going in and out of teams. Means cash generation becomes an issue with so many ins and outs. Fritsch,Cole, Mirra and Spargo not safe yet either until final teams are announced tomorrow. Could be a tough week.

Is it time to turn TKelly into Gaz?
Gaz has already thrown down the gauntlet and announced that we should all watch him this weekend. I've never heard of the little piglett ever being so confident so, TMitch's record and Gaz's 179 b.e could be obliterated by half-time. The week after the Lues he plays Gold Coast for the first time and will be wanting to have another record game.

A rookie + 120k gets you Gaz, that can't be called anything other than a great deal.

Gaz an injury risk in my book but no guts no glory

Only if you are willing to bench him when he misses games or have the trades to trade out when he misses games.

HumanBob
Guest
HumanBob

Yeah, you'd be bringing him in as a permanent replacement for Kelly with Rocky at M9 for the required cover. Riskometer uninstalled itself and left a note saying F.U

Rocky and Gaz could work if they can synchronise their time off, so it’s only 1 at a time.

I like the idea of Rocky and Gaz M8/9 to cover each other, outside of the box thinking good option HB.

Thanks Real. I worry for the sanity of people who agree with me though.

Whatyasmokin

Nah, if I was to pick a risky mid it'd be Rocky. At 374K with a 20 odd BE.

Gaz seems like a bargain if you fail to mention the other players around the 550K mark that not only will be arguably more reliable but won't come with a 180 BE.

Time to hit the reverse trade button.
Hurley injured, now have Naughton, Murray & Keeffe to deal with down back.

New plan is Naughton & Murray for Lloyd & Ridley

Not a fan of bringing in 1 gamers, but appears the best option

Russty_

Hey JEL, Hurley was reported as missing a minimum of 2 weeks, 2 weeks ago, and Ridley named again, might be a good thing to go early. Hurley should be back next week..hopefully!

Any of those 6 on Sundays extended bench? I’ve got 3 out and 2 on extended bench.

How over is your season? I’m ranked at about 70000, have lost every game in one of my leagues, but I’m making a huge charge, starting next week.

JohnDJ59
Guest
JohnDJ59

Murphy on the extended bench. Rank 39,860 getting worse every week, not in the top eight in any of my leagues. Won four GF last year with a rank of 1,501. I like your optimism by the way.

Beezneez

Not liking Murphy's chances with the personnel on the extended bench but, then again, I didn't expect him in last week (Milera didn't pass fitness test).

JohnDJ59

I do agree Beezneez, that's why at the moment I'm counting him as a out, if he plays that will be a bonus.

Can be put down to holding rookies too long too. Doesn’t take much for rookies to be dropped

JohnDJ59

Two of the rookies were going to be upgraded this week anyway, Mills getting injured and having Hurley on the bench injured was the killer.

Sandyf62
Guest
Sandyf62

I agree with you partly Wow, but luck can play a part as well, I also had Finlayson, Murray and Duman, but not Mills or Murphy, I was planning on upgrading Murray and Duman this weekend, so no damage done, but just because I have Yeo and Richards instead of Mills and Murphy doesn't make me a better planner and if Yeo does play this weekend,I will have dogged a bullet, with a bit of luck.

Sandyf62
Guest
Sandyf62

That's funny but at the same time a bit rough hedski, at least that is one game you won't have to check in on over the weekend. By the way JohnJD59 I can no longer trade in Cripps, so your evil plan won't work, due to my non playing players in the backline, at least I only had two, so manageable.

JohnDJ59
Guest
JohnDJ59

No!! Sandy I really needed you to bring in Cripps to sabotage his season for me, so many of my opponents have him and it's killing me, maybe next week then, since this weekend is stuffed anyway.

Sandyf62

Hey JD like everyone has said, all you can do is just keep at it, don't get down and things will turn around in the end. Keep the Faith, go Bon Jovi.

JohnDJ59

Hey Hedski you probably would have won anyway, just makes it a certain win now, that will be three out of three against me this season after wins in the Chatter Boxers in round 6 and the Magnificent 7 in round 7. A bit [email protected]#ed though since we are both on 12 points in the Rat Pack, oh well there's always next week as they say in these situations.

HaHaHa, I like it Gator, I did pat a black cat the other day if that counts, yes I just have to keep the faith, I might even put on the song while I look at my team, just have to stay positive. Bon Jovi Keep The Faith now playing.

Carnage in my back line. 3 omissions along with Cole and Murphy looking in trouble.

If I have 5 outs on a single line I can still cover it.

Sicily swings to cover one spot. Upgrade another and then bring in a one game rookie instead of Phillips.

redherringfc
Guest
redherringfc

No I can’t.

I need Murphy or Cole to make the cut.

do i trade out kelly this week or Murray

if. trade out kelly Murray won't lose any cash and i have bench cover for him

if so what mid premo do i get for him, danger, maybe bont

Yeo in! No danger of him being a late out?

Ja191

after seeing how he came on and played last week and the fact that they are playing in Melbourne they're not gonna fly him here if he's not going to play I wouldn't have thought.

hedski
Guest
hedski

Was tossing up Fin or Murray this week, now they're both out I think Murray goes first, Fins DPP could come in handy if there is shenanigans next week, plan is to punt him also next week, just saves playing the "who makes their B/E? Game"this week.

Rivo
Guest
Rivo

Defence carnage for many. Fortunate enough to have cover after planned trades, and if Yeo still plays.

Finlayson & Naughton to Lloyd & Ridley.

Recommend folks keep Murray on the bench as he is still listed an emergency.

HumanBob
Guest
HumanBob

Fritsch is named in a position on the extended bench that suggest he wont play. Is he just having a rest or is he injured?

redherringfc
Guest
redherringfc

He’ll play. They list their players on the bench by number. He’s been too good lately.

HumanBob
Guest

I never realised that it's not a uniform system. wow who'd have thought that a power crazy entity like the afl would leave that system up to free choice

r_calve

doesn't he usually start on the bench as well

TOPHAWK1
Guest
TOPHAWK1

Murray to Ryan this week, and going Billings to Timothy Smith one week early to raise cash. Smith not even on extended bench! Good JS. That would leave me $255K to punt Kelly to Dusty and Crowden to Rockliff next week. Then Holman and Rocky to provide me with midfield cover during the byes with 15 trades left. Touch wood, let's hope my little shark move plan comes off!!

Derek
Guest
Derek

Making enough cash to get to full premium is my biggest problem.

However, this is my bench.

Murphy, O’conner, Garlett, Crowden, Barry, Olango, Venables, Spargo.

I also have Mills and Finlayson to deal with, so won’t be able to even get Ed Phillips this week.

Looks like baked beans on toast for me.

Mr.Brightside
Guest
Mr.Brightside

I'm sharing your pain , I thought last week to trade out Dooday instead of Finlayson was the way to go , but no Dooday scores 90 and Finlayson is dropped this week . like most this week , ah the joys of Supercoach

Sandyf62

Sandyf62

Not looking very good Derek, Spargo about the only one making any cash, at least your team on the field is looking a lot better.

Who plays next week finaylson or Murray?
Trading one of them this week then the other has to survive till the rd 13 bye.
With hurley back next week be perfect to bring in after his/their bye.

Thinking holding Murray?
Is he more important to the pies than fin to gws?

Watch the giro tyro go this weekend…

Jack

Hard to split them Trigga, but if I was a gambling man (which I'm not) I'd say keep Murray purely because he is named emergency, Finlayson isnt

TommyC99

Bailey Rice is a slightly older rookie from the Saints. Ready made body and looks to have good JS after all the saints outs.

JohnDJ59

JohnDJ59

Both look good, I would be as well, but I just don't bring them in till they are named for their third game, been burnt other seasons, so I've learnt my lesson.

I dont watch a lot of sydney games, so i was wondering if any members of the community could let me know if Lloyd is the real deal this season? In the past he's struggled to score well with McVeigh in the side with him, but he appears to have gotten over that issue. Does Mills out help or hinder him? Cheers in advance guys

Justin
Guest
Justin

I thought about bringing Lloyd in too. He has only scored over 100 3 times this year. Aside from that he’s had 70s and 80s. Last year I had him and that’s all he dished up, minus the big scores.

JohnDJ59
Guest
JohnDJ59

I had him from the start last year, he had 5 100s before he was concussed, it was after he came back that his scoring dropped off.

Last week he was running loose, getting possessions in the back line then he’d be running with the play all the way up to the forward 50 arc where he’d get another possession along the way and not even looking at manning an opposition player. I’d think mills out will hurt either him or mcveigh as one of them will have to be accountable for a man now.

JohnDJ59
Guest
JohnDJ59

A pity he's going up so much in price this week, we really need another week to see how he goes.

Swans2012

Lloyd a good option, just don't expect those massive scores from him every week, opposition coaches would have seen the damage he did prancing around last week and won't let it happen like that again.

Prime example about not culling rookies at the right time or even 1 week early. Especially when your talking about a maximum rise in 10k. Don't get attached to them as they only there for cash gen to get to premo.

JohnDJ59
Guest
JohnDJ59

Agree 66, but we only have two trades a week, so there are only so many we can trade out each week, how much money we have in the kitty, who we are targeting for the upgrade or downgrade are all factors.
