THE CHEAT SHEET Round 12

Published by Damo on

I promised you this week I would look at Gold Coast players, and I am not one to break my promise. So I have dived into the depths that is Gold Coast’s list and unearthed some players who could help guide you through the bye rounds.
I shouldn’t have to say this, but don’t trade out Nat Fyfe.
Max Gawn and Brodie Grundy go head to head in the Queen’s Birthday clash between Melbourne and Collingwood, and it also represents a great cause. All donations are tax deductible and a donation as little as $1 helps, so get around the campaign and laugh with us all as we watch all 18 coaches go down the slide into an ice bath.
I’ve put my money where my mouth is, and I’ll be donating $100.
Back to the cheat sheet though, I’d like to hear from you!
​Should I continue to recommend ruckmen, or what else should I put there?

I’m considering trading Dusty this week if the carnage is as bad as I’m expecting. Should I consider Lyons? Or just pick up a Buddy/Gray/Menegola?

SC_Sixty6

Offload Dusty good choice. Get in a nice pod. So Menegola!

TBone_9

Cheers Sixty, don’t think Menegola will get much cheaper either

Shake_n_Bake_

The talk is wont be back till rd 15.

TBone_9

Wow if that’s the case Shake then I feel much better about it

The King

GC Lyons? Not named in the 22

Undypuncher

Ive traded hin to beams

hedski

Billings finally omitted!!!
And Tim Smith (boo).
Good on ya Damo, great cause.

Steeeve

Any hope of Tim Smith returning?

hedski

I hope so after his bye Steeeve, hopefully resting him, copped a knock last week.

Defying_Madness

2 donuts for me yummy. about 7 players out this week who I thought would be playing come last week

iLoveNMFC

Thoughts Community?
Play 18:
Option A- Triple downgrade Ridley, Cumming and Dom Barry to Ahern, Heron and Mihochek?
Option B- Downgrade Cumming and Barry to Ahern and Heron and upgrade Dusty to Oliver/Kelly/Westhoff?
Play 17:
Option C- Downgrade Cumming and Barry and upgrade Fritsch to Walters/Buddy?

Thanks!

The King

Option A

Marty

Carnage…Fyfe Laird Cogs Dusty T Smith …how many players do we all have on field now?

Defying_Madness

I have Ridley as well so am left with 16. Spread out my premos across all the rounds so now the weak coaches who didn't prepare for byes and have a tonne of round 14 players will be laughing. Oh well this game is all luck anyway

BlueBaggerJosh

17, could trade Martin to make it 18 but not sure if i should or if its necessary. Fyfe, Laird, Cogs should all be short term (not sure about Laird) but apparently martin might be out until round 15.

Ohh dear

14…….

Steeeve

I can get to 18 if I trade out two players with negative breakevens. Sigh.

Ahmad rubas

17 before trades should be able to field 18 this week I'm already short for rounds 13 and 14 which is a good sign

The King

Thought this was meant to be the easy bye round. Laird, Fyfe, Martin, Coniglio all out will hurt almost everyone.

fono

…and rookies Tim Smith and Jordan Ridley…ouch!

I'm officially screwed :/

theRealPod

Think of it this way. Just about all teams will suffer in at least one of the bye rounds, maybe all of them. Try to lessen the damage as much as you can even if all previous plans are scrapped. You might need to burn maximum trades but remember the other guy is in the same boat.

The King

At least my league opponents are worse off then I am, one positive

TommyC99

So no Fyfe, cogs, Laird, Ridley, Tim Smith, Dusty and billings, plus all the rounds 12 bye players. Completely ruined my trade plans and thought I was alright at the start of the week when I counted 20 playing players. Now doubt I’ll get 18 on the park. God I love SuperCoach,

SCWars94

Dont know about all you guys but im not even bothering with round 12 😂. What a f#cking disaster!!!

johnno2908

Well…What a c*nt of a round this has turned out to be.

Griggsy

Have 13 before trades. Carefully plotted but didn’t count on no Fyfe, cogs, Dusty, Laird, Smith, Ridley! Absolutely rooted

JEL

T Smith listed as omitted, not injured?

Scraping to put 18 on the park this week with 3 premo holes in the team

Steeeve

Think I'm going to have to flick him. It hurts but he ain't playing for at least the next two weeks. I'd planned to move Spargo on but I need warm bodies. Smith out R Gray in.

seen_burns

rip.

Russty_

You'd have to think Dusty would be telling Coach he'll be staying in NZ for 2 weeks to 'heal up his calf soreness' right?..and then the bye.
I'm sure he could still get to all the Bikie parties in a wheelchair.

DEES NUTS R BIG

Haven't people heard Dusty has a clause or two in his contract – perfect timing and excuse to do as he pleases.

MEK

Billings to Westhoff or should i do Henry or Ronke instead

The King

Billings to Hoff, or any Port FWD is a good trade

redherringfc

I was holding Billings for the Suns game, but I doubt he’ll only be out for 1 week.

If Richo has lost patience with him, so have I.

Kept trying to avoid the Hoff, but this week has been brutal. I think I need him now.

Neverweaken

Every year I plan my byes. Hold players to cover byes. Accept some losses knowing I have good bye cover.
And then the SC Gods punish me for daring to plan for the byes. Lesson learned I think. F*ck the byes. Get who you want when you want.

Russty_

Agree mate, you can try to plan ahead for this game but then this happens, worst case scenario is you lose all 3 but still finish ok in your Leagues cause you have the team you want, not with 3 or 4 guys you didn't really want.

AuroraBorealis?!

any idea on how long dusty will be out for? Above, shake and bake said he wont be back until rd 15, but on an article i read the coach seems to think it'll be a one week injury. If he's out for a while i might go to phillips

The King

I'd still hold him if he's going to be back round 15, especially if you can field 18 this week and next.
For me, it would only be worth the trade if there was a 110 av GC or Port mid to bring in and you avoid a donut

Russty_

I reckon the real question is Aurora…how long does he need off to be able to get his head back in the game, his desire to do his best, which includes tackling etc.

redherringfc

I’m hoping the answer to your question Russty is 3 weeks.

A perfect final upgrade in round 15.

Shake_n_Bake_

Did hear an interview saying if it is a calf the most likely scenario we wont see him till after his bye. But maybe its just like others are saying needs a break.

George S

Given that the Saints expect to have Carlisle, Gilbert and perhaps Brown all available in 1 week, does that mean Logan should be steered clear off- particularly given the negative appraisal given by his coach this week.
There are similarities between T. Smith and Logan- rookies who scored really well in the first 2 games and were considered "must-haves". We all know how that worked with Smith- a lowly 26 points and then dropped the week after.

seen_burns

I am staying away from Austin.

The King

Agree

CazzaRazza

Should we be worried about Ahern. (Apart from his knee history) I was planning to get him after the byes and his second game, but what is his JS like? Better than T. Smith and Logan I hope! I might have to trade him in this week.

seen_burns

What I've heard from Scott talking about him is that he wants to play him and thinks he'll be a star, it's just about whether his body was ready playing AFL.

Marcus

All Austin needs to do is hold his spot this week and next week and he would have gained 100k+, think he is worth it for the fast cash generation

redherringfc

I’ve thought the same thing. But I’m too worried about next week, so I’m going to hold off and wait for Mihocek to get on the bubble.

BrownlowBoy

I now have an excuse to trade Jack [email protected]#$%^& Billings

Russty_

Hey BB, you should be able to get a decent rookie with what Billings is worth now.

BrownlowBoy

Yeah I'm stuffed Rusty for this week. Fielding 18 at the moment, with 7 of them being rookies.

George S

From the AFL website……..
The Tigers expect Martin to return to Australia on Sunday or Monday and start preparing for the game against the Cats.

George S

Although (playing devils advocate, and dabbling in conspiracy theories) who recovers from a calf injury by taking a 3 hr each way flight, allowing the hamstring and calf to tighten up further? It does sound suspicious- perhaps he just needed a mental break
?

Marty

Excuse to visit his dad for a few weeks without media scrutiny?

Havin a crack

HELL
I’m fielding 6 so-called premo’s
and a had full of blokes I don’t even know how to pronounce their name correctly.
I’m now thinking stuff my rank
stuff my league wins
Keep my 3 precious trades
And have a punt on the pony’s for 3 weeks

MEK

Should keep Ronke or tarde him and should i get rid of Murphy this week

Russty_

Both are named onfield this week, depends on how many you have on the park I guess and who you're thinking of getting?

MEK

Billings to Hoff then not sure i have 16 trades and 390k

Russty_

Could be risky but Billings to Ahern would make you some nice cash for future upgrades, Ahern looks like a good player.

The Ranger

I got 17 playing. Only 10 (sort of) premos.
Think I'm gonna just award myself a bye.

Shake_n_Bake_

Had 8 players playing in my fwd line now with Billings and Smith out makes it easy who to bench!

Doc_1

Need 3 forwards to round out my forward line.
(Already have Walters, Sicily, Dev Smith).

Best 3 to complete it with (irrespective of bye week)?
Gray, Heeney, Buddy, JJK, McLean, TMac

Have Taranto as my M9/F7 swing.

Havin a crack

Heeney, McLean then toss of a coin, jjk and gray have the easier games come sc finals if that helps

Lazza

I think you need 3.5… under my system DSmith is sub-premo..
I’d suggest McLean, TMac, Heeney and consider The Hoff as a replacement for DSmith.

Sc_Wow

D Smith is fine as f6 mate

Doc_1

Agreed, particularly if I can loop Taranto’s score with him. (Assuming all mid premos playing).

Lazza

I’d rather have Buddy .. DSmith ok at F7 instead of Taranto.. if ya gonna loop IMO you need a player with a high ceiling.. neither Smith or Taranto fit that mould..

Lazza

Your earlier discussion (other threads during the week) around JJK also would play to this scenario.. and provide some cash for the upgrades.. I’m Thinking seriously about JJK as my F7, having him and Buddy as my loop options. (I already have Buddy).

CaptainObvious

With Darling gone for 6-weeks JJK is now the go to fwd at west coast again. He's still a bargain for next week and everybody should get him.

Jack

I agree Wow, I'd almost back him to outscore Hoff from here on in. Even if he doesn't it will be such a small amount it won't justify a trade and cash

JohnDJ59

Out of that lot I like McLean, Heeney who I have and Buddy. I'm trading in Hogan this week as a value pick, since I think he will end up in the top six fwds. That will leave me with Buddy still to get after the byes.

WTFoxtrot_58

3 trades this week and still 5 non players on field. ..
Think I might go and sandpaper my balls in readiness for the next cricket season…gotta be more fun!!
Anyone know where I can get some cheap 120 grit??

Marty

I would appreciate some thoughts from our wonderful community.

Weighing up worth v risk for this round. Ranked in the 900's I'm thinking of Martin to Menegola and Ridley to Austin. Both sideways trades which are against my SC rules but this round will catch many people out and the thought of a much higher ranking is tempting. Allows me to have 18 players in field. Gives me 3 players still for full premo but after trading I will have 12 trades left. Plenty of cash generation though with Holman, Guelfi, Higgins, Spargo, Langdon.

Thoughts?

Swans2012

I'd go hard now Marty, I'd rather use them now than wish I had…..

theRealPod

I would forget the old rules and go with ya gut. This is THE test of the season so far and how you act now will decide your SC fate. You're within striking distance of a very good finish so imo go for it.

Marty

Thanks guys. Have to also think about not running out of trades. Will go for glory and wait for the SC Gods to bend me one more time.

Swans2012

Good decision, I'd do the same, but might as well assume the position now lol

Marty

Haha!

Connor

My list of INS vs OUTS (non-bye players):
IN – M. Crowden

OUT – D. Martin, S. Coniglio, N. Fyfe, R. Laird, J. Billings, J. Ridley, T. Smith

And this was meant to be the easy one…

BrownlowBoy

With some of those onfield being Murphy, Spargo, Langdon – doesn't fill me with confidence!

Russty_

Warm bodies are better than dead bodies though lol, which is what many will have on field this week.

BrownlowBoy

That's very true.

hedski

What if you traded Charlie Dixon in???
Dead or alive….

BrownlowBoy

I'd rather cop a donut than bring in Charlie Dixon

hedski

Same BB, just wasn't sure if he was a warm body or not since he is dead.

BrownlowBoy

Can confirm man is dead

Rivo

Dodged a bullet this week but trading to lock in 19 playing..

Out: Keefe, Spargo & Murray;
In: Austin, Ahern & T-Mac.

Murray on extended bench and taking the punt on Ahern.
Good luck community. It’s going to be a bumpy ride!

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Thats it im moving into a cave till the byes r over!
What a whitewash!
And @ARK ESSENDON [email protected]@@@!!!!
Mutch and now Ridley. Bye planning so thought would select 2 rd 13 rooks rather than Ronke and Rice.
Lesson learnt select the best rookie and the byes can get stuffed. 🖕

Gr8 bye planning so had 18-20 each 3 rds just gone completely out the window.

R we trading Crusty? Ahhhhhj 😱

Russty_

I'm thinking about trading Dusty Trigga, stuff him, not even trying and dropping so much from what I paid, and now we find out he's injured?…stuff him!, he can go to his NZ Bikie parties and I'll get someone in who does care about their Footy.

Shake_n_Bake_

I play you Trigga l think in Rat pack. Fielding 18 myself l hope without anymore late surprises!

JohnDJ59

I didn't worry about the byes, traded in Ronke and Rice on the bubble, didn't get either of Mutch or Ridley.

Sam

Pick two out of westhoff, boak and walters!! I already have gray

Rivo

Walters & Hoff for me.

joe

Boak for me. Westhoff's scoring is probably going to dip now that Ryder is back. Walters has a bye upcoming and a chequered injury history. Boak hardly misses a game and is having his best season for years.

Swans2012

thats it I'm doing it one last time, for old times sake and for what he's done for me in the past,

Welcome aboard Gary, Gary bloody ablett welcome to the team

(And my season is pretty well shot anyway so might as well throw a bit of Gary into the mix!)

theRealPod

With the negative opinions of some in the media he could easily hit some old Gaz form. Might be a brilliant move. I'm just hoping he stays fit for the rest of the year and helps get the Cats to the finals.

Russty_

Good luck mate, don't think he's been this cheap for quite a few years, hopefully he holds together for ya!

Swans2012

That was the tipping point rusty $487k

redherringfc

Don’t do it.

The gods will punish you.

FotherMuckers

The little Master is really starting to hit form. Meters gained means his hammies seem ok, overhead marks says his shoulder is ok and higher number of tackles backs that up. I'm with you. He is worth the risk of 2 trades to get him in and then replace him if necessary through injury. His price will justify the trades if he holds up for a few weeks.

KSinny

Flicking Dusty this week, thinking of getting either Treloar, Phillip's or Duncan. Who should I get out of these 3 or should I get someone else?

Russty_

Treloar's been very solid, Phillips too, Menegola's been good too and is cheaper but with a couple of spuddy scores chucked in there.
Phillips is looking like a gun lately though playing on the wing. Treloar probably the safest choice.

Sunshine

I’m flicking Dusty too. I can see him having a longish rest with a ‘calf twinge’.
Is Josh Kelly out of the question? He is two games back, lots of possessions but efficiency down thus his high BE (135) but so was T. Kelly and look what a good score last week did to that.
I am assuming he is over his injury!

Ja191

watched him the past few weeks. will finish 110-115 for rest of season imo injuries aside he's a jet

Swans2012

Duncan is a cracking pod, rarely plays bad,but I like gary, but that's more just so I can say Gary is in the team one last time. Only so many points to go around at feeling though…..

Kanga

11 premos out this week and currently fielding 14 before any trades.
Time to pack this SH!+ in.

Might let things role until Monday and if in a position to win the league matches I might trade in Oliver and Hogan.

Ahmad rubas

17 playing this week before trades feeling kinda lucky
4 defenders
5 midfielders
2 rucks
6 forwards
Is midfield the weakest spot for most teams this week?

Jack

Imagine at the start of the year someone told you the planned on 'upgrading' dusty to Phillips.

Rick Grimes

This is the time to stay calm community. Looks like everyone is In a similar position, so don't make any rash trades you'll regret in a couple of weeks. A good captain choice or a clever upgrade will be the key this week. Not sure sideways trading of premos is the strategy to employ. Just my opinion.

Russty_

Fair enough Rick…is trading Dusty out this week a rash trade though?…or do we stick with him and hope he'll turn his form around after his break?

The Ranger

Spot on Rick.
Drinking heavily is also a sensible strategy over the byes.
Just my opinion.

Russty_

I agree Ranger..Whiskey with ice and many of them lol…and holding your head in your hands until it all goes away hahah

Rick Grimes

That's actually the best advice. And it's not just applicable to this week. Works the whole year.

Sc_Wow

My opinion is Dusty’s cooked.

Russty_

How long do you think he'll be hitting the Bongs in New Zealand Wow?

Sc_Wow

He will be smashing them all byes

Rick Grimes

I'll hold Dusty. After he gets his fill of the good Northland green, he'll come back with a vengeance. Will be a nice POD when he clocks up 160s.

Sc_Wow

Will be a nice pod avoiding his 70-80s

SC_Sixty6

When he is back for rd 15 he might AVG 105. In the finals (real finals) SC will be over.

Shake_n_Bake

Hey Rick playing in Triggs league looks like you have been hit really hard with 16 outs!

HumanBob

Gosh damn poo!
Even after trading in 3-500k+ players I've only got 17 on field this week.
Thanks Messrs Fyffe, Laird, Coniglio

Sc_Wow

You’re back!
Yep I’m missing those blokes too, managing to feild 18.
What are you doing with darling bud?

HumanBob

Back early, I don't normally appear until friday night.
6 weeks is too long, I'll take the cash and get JJK next week, now that he's the #1 fwd for a genuine contender.

Sc_Wow

Welcome to the JJK side

SC_Sixty6

#2 rank can only field 17 max too. Happens to the best of us.

Grapes

Go through Damo’s cheat sheet the last few weeks and not everything Damo suggests is correct. You can do better than Miller surely.

SCDamien

If you look on Twitter the last few weeks, I actually post a checklist once a round is done ticking and crossing the ones I got right and wrong. Last week's was a shocker.

Sharknado

Do I trade Spargo or Tim Smith out, was initially going to trade spargo but after carnage that'll only leave me with 17. Have 18 if I get rid of Smith, do we see Smith returning for r14?

Jack

I'd also like to know this. Smith out gets me 18, Spargo out gets me more cash….I'm leaning towards Smith out

FearTheBeard

Questioning the same thing 😐

Sharknado

Ended up doing neither and saving a trade for next week, will upgrade spargo to a mid who's had their bye already

Murray

Absolute carnage this week. I went from 21 players on field to 13. I am also now needing to burn a couple of extra trades than I wanted. With my 277k cash I was thinking :
Out coniglio, Garlett (carl) and Ridley
In T McDonald, Austin and rance ( I am 2k short of getting Walters)

If I wanted Walters I would need to trade L Murphy but low and behold he is playing. I suppose the question I have is Murphy ia warm body on the field and is Murphy and rance points going to be more than Walters?
What would you do?

Randomcliche2

Sacrifice a weeks score and get your team right. May not be double up with only $277. Perhaps consider building a bigger bank for next week with a rookie over Rance. There will be some better post bye players to pick up. Gray cheaper than Tmac, allow rance up to walters? just a thought without seeing team.

Murray

Thanks for the advice RC

Sc_Wow

If you’re up there for rank trade your ass off. If not then hold I guess

JugHead

Need a quick reality check. Is it crazy to brong T kelly back in?

BlueBaggerJosh

yes

Russty_

PATIENCE, can be a virtue fellas, those of you with less that 15 trades left, thinking about burning 4 to 6 trades in the next 3 weeks to get through the byes, and win a couple of games instead of losing them, I'd say, unless you are in with a real shot of winning the whole thing, try to be conservative.
If you have accepted the reality of your situation, (that Leagues are all you have left to play for) then maybe try to last the season by not overtrading.
You can't win any League Finals if you have no trades left, in fact, you will slide way down the ladder fast and have no chance of winning if you run out of trades…and then you will be in a world of shit, and not like Supercoach very much towards the end of the season.
So, Patience is my advice…cause it is a marathon, not a sprint, and patience can pay dividends, if you're prepared to wear a few losses along the way of your journey to number one in your League. 🙂
If you can exercise abstinence,from trading, when everyone else is, and have some in reserve for when 2 of your premos go down before your grand final, you could end up winning it all in your League and getting the ultimate bragging rights.

I tried this strategy last year and won 6 out of 10 Leagues and also ended up ranked 1500 or so…good enough for me. 🙂

Sc_Wow

But also trade dusty like there’s no tomorrow

Russty_

Or will he be a pod in a few weeks if you don't trade him out?..:)

Sc_Wow

If 50% ownership is pod then maybe, he won’t even get that low though

JohnDJ59

I'm with you Russty, I'm not even worrying about the byes, just trading for the best of my team, I'll be alright for this round, but round 13 and 14 no good and I'm not about to waste trades just to get a few more players on the field. A word of warning to J.Hogan owners, I just traded him in.

Redpill5

You bastard!

JohnDJ59

With my record over the last month, he's bound to get a low score and then withdraw injured for the next game.

Russty_

Hoges will be fine mate!…bloody GUN!

JohnDJ59

I hope so,I was hesitant about bringing Jesse in since we are playing the Pies and I didn't want to put the mozz on him, but after Smithy was dropped it seemed the right trade.

SC_Sixty6

Yesssssss. I love you xx 😘

Tommo

Panicking
What to do? What to do?

Def: Laird Simpson Hurley Sicily Lloyd Doedee (Mirra Ridley)
Mid: Fyfe Danger Cripps Bont Dusty McLean Dow Brayshaw (Clark Phillips O’Connor)
Ruc: Gawn NicNat (Cameron)
Fwd: Buddy Heeney Gray Fritsch Ronke Guelfi (Smith Spargo)

15 trades 619k left

Yes I know I am way behind in upgrading but am not sure what to do this week and am completely stuck after team announcements

Randomcliche2

I'm not counting many green lights. Try get some more while building/upgrading s.t. cash in hand. I'd go Austin, Rocky and Walters/Hogan/Boak s.t. other byes haven't counted. Outs perhaps Mirra, not going to get a game, Tim Smith, dropped and Dow? Haven't added it up…see if works. Cheers

TommyC99

So finally trading billings this week. Grab Buddy, Gray or Hoff?

The King

Buddy

DacZawson

If you check the Swans run home, I'm not sure if Buddy is the best idea

SC_Sixty6

18 on field this week. 6 rookies 12 premos. Laird and Fyfe out that weren't going to be for Rd 12.

10 trades left and Dusty I goneski! 17 premos next week on field and week after 14 premos on field. Looking good and even after this week's carnage still managing to field enough players.

Russty_

I wish you luck mate getting through the rest of the year with 10 trades left now. Hope it works out for ya, but if it doesn't, make sure you hang around, cause there's a lot of blokes who'll want a piece of you haha.
Best of luck going forward! 🙂

SC_Sixty6

Haha. You worry too much Russty! Plenty of trades mate. Do this year in year out.

I'm sure people want a piece! My plan is to walk the walk. Confident on how my team is shaping. Goodluck to you in the byes.

Marty

Similar numbers with 11 premos. Captain choice will make a huge difference.

Derek

I’m getting rid of Coniglio before Dusty.

Coniglio was always a sub-premium. Where Dusty is still top 8 mid.

Tossing up between Crouch and Kelly, prob go Crouch.

SC_Sixty6

Although cogs has scored better than Dusty overall thus far…..each year is different.

Defying_Madness

Last two weeks Cogs looked very good with Kelly in the side. He was going huge last week until the concussion. I hope it doesn't come back to bite you

JohnDJ59

I'm keeping both, but I guess Derek could be thinking about how players coming back from concussion have gone, thinking Lloyd last year and Merrett this year.

Defying_Madness

Thinking both of those didn't have much to do with the concussion. Lloyd had his role stolen and Merret was tagged and played in a terrible team

SC_Sixty6

Wouldn't go off being in a terrible team as a major factor……Zorko……

Jack

Cripps, Macrae, Gaz at Gold Coast. Being in a terrible team can help, less points to share around, not that Essendon are that terrible anyway

Marcus

Im thinking I might just hold Dusty this week, then if not named next week just trade him to a mid thats already had their bye
Gives me another week to assess and wont lose any points out of it

Jeffrey

McDonald or Menogola? Byes no factor in decision just long term best keeper as a lock in forward top 6

The King

Menegola

Jack

Splitting McDonald, Menegola is difficult as I have them both around a 95-100 Ave player…throw buddy in there too

James

Any suggestions for trades got 15 left and & $91k. Got no clue who to trade this week pls help. Already done Murphy to Austin so far.

DEF: Laird Yeo Sicily Hurley Simpson
Doedee (Cole Murphy)

MID: Fyfe Cripps Titch Danger Martin Cogs Zorko Holman (Spargo Brayshaw Phillips)

RUCK: Gawn Martin (Cameron)

FWD: McLean Heeney Menegola Fritsch Henry Guelfi (Smith Keefe)

JohnDJ59

Your team looks alright, since you don't have a lot of cash, you can't really upgrade and the best rookies don't get to the bubble until after this round, I would sit tight till the next round, the trade you have done, is good enough. PS if you don't want to hold Dusty, you could get Oliver or Crouch in.

James

Alright thanks John, guess I’ll just wait till next week.

Trades

Is rockliff going to be tagging ROS?
If so I can get in Ablett, Zorko or menagola

Sc_Wow

Right now that looks like his only effective role in the team

Maverick_

I think that’s most probably the case.
I like either of them 3 options menegola fwd though!
Ablett at 485k is serious value if he can get going like we know he can.

ATeam12345

Zorko in red hot form, Ablett could get going or could take a break. Menegola handy to swing in the fwds

DavidC

Port said that Rocky is not the designated tagger. They just made the decision for him to tag at quarter time as he wasn't finding the pill enough.

George S

May I ask what people think of Callum Moore's & Heron's job security? Sick of bringing in rookies who make a bit of money then get dropped well before they ripen
