Every year i get sucked into "traps" this year, bloody Dustin Martin, what an over rated, 1 season wonder

COREYSC

Agreed, luckily this year I didn’t fall for the hype

Lazza

But what a season that was … probably never to be repeated…
looks like my two correctives this week will be Martin and Yeo.. to Fyfe and …. don’t know who yet..

kinglear009

Yeo still looks good – got tagged by one of the best and 7 frees against, I repeat, 7. More likely to have been a once off than Dustin 'what's a tackle' Martin

Streaker

Neale if you can or M Crouch or Sloanedog Millionaire

Russty_

I went off Dusty when I heard about his mental health battles he's been having.

Derek

I thought, great he is over them. Maybe he isn’t

He did get a close tag and Richmond got killed

Won’t be getting rid of him yet

Streaker

DRUGS? So over this mental health bullshit. It's a slap in the face who really have mental health issues. The AFL is oiss weak.

Clarkeyy23

How good is Oliver & Gawn 😍

DavidC

What, you didn't trade them out after last week?

Derek

Oliver is a freak

Had C on him last week, just happy to have him this week

Justin

Hoping for a 100 point second half from Coniglio!

Daniel Beales

Think theres a lot of people under estimating how good Geelong are going to be this year. Towled up Collingwood and now Melbourne, and they steam rolled the last 5 games of last season.
Time to be checking out: Tom Stewart, Tim Kelly and Luke Dalhaus

COREYSC

I agree but I’m a Geelong supporter;)

Russty_

Yeah Stewart said before the season started he's looking forward to his best year so far, and Dahl seems to be fitting in really well at the Cats and is re-invigorated, Kelly's just a gun and getting better, Cats could be serious contenders this year. Great rookies too.

Patch

Post MaSlaone did pop in to tell us he'd be an excellent pick… he wasn't even on my radar

Russty_

I think he's an excellent pick, but will wait to see how Touhy gets back affects him, if he gets back.

AuroraBorealis?!

Wouldn't say they "toweled" up Collingwood, they took part in a very close contest and just got the win in the final moment. Either team could've taken the 4 points then

Dave2008

Exactly Pies lost it Geelong didn't win it. Cats very good team though.

Lazza

One unbelievable stat … Melbourne won the FWD 50 entries 72 to 48 and lose by 14 goals … that’s one helluva back line performance..

Derek

Cats do that. They win games they shouldn’t

Imagine what they would do with a decent Ruck

Kelly is now a must have.

Touhy will effect Stewart’s scoring

Dave2008

Pies lost it. Towel up is 4 goals plus surely? Cats look good so far though.

Tommo09

Had Danger as VC but I did not realise this wouldn’t allow me to use his VC score with Grundy and Gawn already playing. Big mistake. Oh well let’s hope Fyfe dominates

Liddicoat Adam

Happened to alot of us me thinks

BlueBaggerJosh

Very tempted to trade hanley to Ballard, Thoughts?

kinglear009

At that price point, consistency looks like Moore and risk is everywhere so good luck, Ballard had the best final quarter I've seen in a while but not sure that translates to SC points

Simon

Should you get rid of heeney? Not really in form and looks to be mainly forward with not much mid time

Tbag86

I’m seriously considering it Simon. I have no doubt he’ll come good eventually and could be worth holding from that regard.. but I think it’s worth capitalising on the cheap mid pricers who are going to go up a crap load in value and produce better output while Heeney falls in price.

For that reason, I’m considering:
Heeney -> Darcy Moore
Mid rookie -> Rockliff or Sheed

Some might say it’s burning trades but even if Rocky or Sheed taper off in form – makes good bench cover later in the season!

Emma

I would hold Henney he is in 50 per cent of teams and is a forward I still think he will be a top 6 forward.

Derek

Rocky and Sheed are unlikely to be top 8, too early to be thinking about bench cover.

Wines and Gaff will effect their scores, not sure how much.

Heeney is a gun and will come good, but if you are trading him, just get Kelly

dashiz

I'm giving serious thought to going Heeney to Boak to save 51K also Heeny expected to drop 30K in value after round 3, Boak set to increase 30K so it would be a double saving.

The only worry i have is that Boak has burned me in the past and with Wines due to come back in could impact his scoring in the near future.

TommyC99

Horse said hes been playing through an ankle injury, which is why he hasn't been running through the guts like we would have hoped. Expect more mid time in the coming weeks, so i will be holding

kinglear009

The reason I'll keep him is that he kicked a goal this week which was disallowed and cost him a 50 meter penalty. That's a 20 point turnaround you'd think, so his output could easily have been 85-90, which is hardly trade worthy. Yet.

Lazza

The problem with that theory is that he didn’t kick a goal.. the 50 mtr was unfortunate .. but you cannot count his non-goal it was a non reality

The Bont

Kade Simpson has got 83 and 72. Trade or hold

imsobrad

A fellow Kade owner here, worried about newmans effect now on his scoring. I know he has always been a top 8 defender, but this year is starting to worry me with newman in the back line possibly taking points.

Starting to think maybe a corrective trade early to jake lloyd who is only slightly more than him atm might be reasonable, but i don't like sideways trading. If he ever does end up averaging even like a D6 then could consider picking him up cheaper at the end of year.

Patch

Been sleeveless two weeks running. That's almost a justification for trading in and of itself, but we'll unpack it on the pod

Russty_

Agree Patch, liken him to the biblical Sampson, lost his Sleeves/ Hair, lost his power, maybe he's just getting old and thinking about playing AFL on PS4

Tofa

Spot on Russty, just like Christian Slater
I'm a Port fan and was at the match, Dad beside me was disparaging our team when the Blues were getting up on us and I repeatedly reminded him to keep faith with the boys… after three quarters I'd finally had enuf and set him straight – "There is not a single sleeve on a single Carlton player, they CANNOT win!!!"

Bells

I'm starting to think picking Ryan Clarke as a POD and a defender who was going to play mostly mid might have been a mistake.

DavidC

Yep, might get dropped after the last performance. I had him in my team at one stage, this game really does come down to a lot of luck.

Sharkmove_King

Just to show how much luck there is in this game.
I didn't VC Grundy (1st mistake)
I then put the VC on Crouch (2nd mistake, should have been Cripps)
I was then a bit scared off by Cripps, So I went with Danger.
Not gloating, and its only a 20 odd point gain from Grundy, just wanna show how much luck is involved in this game

Hawk131415

Spot on Shark, what happens this week could or couldnt happen next week, i didnt vc Grundy either, wasnt happy with his form, so vc"d Cogs, mistake, but not normally, so Fyfe better go big with the C om him.,,,,

kinglear009

Haha we did the same thing except I went for Cripps – so dependable for that 110-130 result while I thought Harmes would lock out Danger but instead he went to Kelly. Can't complain, still better than Oliver as Captain last week!

Derek

Danger is my perma C

My VC is any of Grundy, Oliver, Gawn, Cripps who play before Danger.

I had VC cut off at 139. This week I weakened and stuck with Grundys 137. Gave away 17 points.

Lazza

Thank Ablett snr

Lazza

There is a late out at North.. don’t know who, but Tarryn Thomas is in..

Hawk131415

Thinking of putting the C on Macrae, Ross might decide to rest Fyfe a bit today playing against GC, might even pull him off early in the last,, thoughts???

Derek

The did that last week, sat out most of last quarter, had a bit of a sore hip and they didn’t want to risk him.

Hawk131415

Thats what im afraid of Derek, this is an easier game

Derek

Reminds me of the days having Sam Mitchell in my team. Would be 110 at 3/4 time and finish on 105.

Hawk131415

Yes sir, remember those days, Would you risk it or go Macrae?? leaning towards Macrae,

Derek

A few things standing out:

1) weak rucks are getting heavily scored against. Carlton, GWS, Cats and Fremantle, opposition tuck have scored very well. Lycett, Hickey, Nank, Gawn, Goldy. Might be more relevant for Draft match ups.

2) JLT is over and teams are tagging the opponents best players. Gawn, Cogs, Dusty, Merrett, Laird, Yeo. Expect a couple of poor scores during the year from your premiums, that is why they are premiums.

3) there is still some life in the old brigade. Jelwood, Pendlebury, JPK, Boak, Gray, Rocky. The mammoth curve is alive and happening. One of the greatest articles ever written was on the players who are nearing the end of their career and can see the extinction coming, so they steel themselves for one last crack at it. Massive PODs and great value and very durable.

Anyone else noticing stuff?

AuroraBorealis?!

I've noticed that Bailey Scott seems to be playing in a position that always has him away from the ball. Ball on the left wing? I'll just sit on the opposite side of the ground. Oh the balls coming over to my wing now? Let me switch to the other wing. Ball spending a lot of time in the centre of the ground? Let me stand on the top of our 50 arc. Balls now in my 50? Where am i? oh that's right im somehow running off my defensive 50. Makes for an incredibly frustrating watch

Hawk131415

Hahahahahaha, ive noticed that too, watching his bald head and thinking "get in there" he looks tired, and interested, especialy that contest just outside his defensive 50, kept backing away from the contest that was 1m in front of him!!

Hawk131415

Well that games done for me, over to the Hawks game,,,

Hawk131415

Great observation Derek, definitely noticed the old heads scoring well, Accept Goldy today, spudding it up

NoLanguage96

I've noticed Goldstein is a shadow of his AA form. Crack in FFS!

KSinny

Butters off for Scott isn't looking very good atm

Finnius

Constable and Butters on the bench rip

Hawk131415

Did the same KSin

Derek

Yep. After last week, had to have Scott on field against Lions. Only 64% TOG to half time for Scott. Hopefully he is fresh and run the game out

COREYSC

Yeah so did I shattered i’ve Missed 60 points there. That ruins my chances for 2300 probably struggle to reach 2200

Maverick_

i feel for anyone who went early on bailey scott this week because after today i would have passed.
I have never seen anyone so disinterested and avoid the football as much as he did all day…
i don't know what changed from last week he was a completely different player today.

Hawk131415

Agreed Mav, didnt want to go near it

cash_cows

Well Scott on field doesnt help

Pman

Hi All is the Supercoach coring not working at present? My phone App and website are showing nil SC points in Hawks V Dogs and the North V Lions game seems to have stopped at 3 QTR time? Any ideas what is going on?

LtDraught

Final scores from the North vs Brisbane game on the supercoach website dont seem right

Derek

They only add up to about 2500

cash_cows

okay good, because scott with 26 seems pi$s poor

Maverick_

that's exactly what he was cash cow, piss poor! he will be lucky to have scored 35 if that 26 is incorrect.

Teddy021

They locked in the 3/4 time scores lol

silly

they better adjust that or I'm quitting what a joke

Hawk131415

How do they have DT scores but not SC??

COREYSC

That has me relieved if that’s the case cause 102 SC for Neale after 43 touches was having me tear my hair out!

NoLanguage96

No way thats correct

NoLanguage96

How the f$&K does Neale only score 102. 43 touches at 86% – ???

CaptainObvious

3/4 time score mate. Some Nigerians hacked the scoring system and it crashed.

Hawk131415

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

NoLanguage96

Thank Christ for that, was at the game

Finnius

It's still showing up 102 on my Supercoach??? Surely not.

silly

Yeah I don't understand why that game has not been fixed

COREYSC

I hope that match is fixed soon otherwise I’ll get anxious

Maverick_

dogs v hawks are finalised and still nothing changed with lions or north? surely they are updating them?!

NoLanguage96

They have to it was 3 QTR time scores

COREYSC

Champion Data have had a system overload their hoping it will be fixed soon!

Hawk131415

PAID,

Hawk131415

lIKE IVE BEEN SAYING, ITS NOW TOUCH FOOTY, YOUVE WRECKED THIS GAME!!!!!!

Hawk131415

Umpire threatening to report for swearing???? games a f%$#ing joke

Derek

I really hate Sunday’s

Hawks lose one they should have won

Mundy has no idea how to get the ball

Maverick_

2 words
LIBBBBAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! & sicily….
soft frees yes but he got hot under the collar and couldn't stay cool when the game was in the balance

Hawk131415

Dude, he did what they were doing, how pick him out for a free??? bullshit

Ja191

Na they try and get a reaction out of him which they achieved, he just has to keep his hands to himself

Hawk131415

They were all doing it!! how do you pick him??? be serious!

Hawk131415

If you think that shit is a free kick then youre part of the problem!!!

kinglear009

Sicily's history of foolish hotheaded acts has come back to bite him. Teams now target his rage and umpires are unlikely to be very sympathetic when he loses it.

Mick

The reason they changed the game started with the hawks 5 metre kicks

dontblushbaby

Libba got approx 22 points for his goal

Hawk131415

Seriously how does that work??

Maverick_

no different to constable, bont & westhoff in round 1 they all got 20+ pts for there late goals in tight games…

Hawk131415

Thats ridiculious, like my spelling

TommyC99

Match sealing goal. Macrae also got extra points for his goal.

Patch

DELICIOUS

Maverick_

hey jamal send us through some bank details and i'll deposit $100 straight in now and will give you 80/20 split of the 50k when i win.
cheers

AuroraBorealis?!

Any idea what par is this week? I ended up on 2284 before Bailey Scotts additional points are added, so i feel like 2250-2300 is probably around the mark

Maverick_

i scored 2200 with heeney, dunkley and goldy all under achieving aurora. i think 2250-2300 is a pretty good score

AuroraBorealis?!

Who'd you stick the C on mate?

kinglear009

124 is hardly a stuff up. I picked Oliver last week and Cripps this week: that's a poor captaincy right there!!

Derek

I think Scott lost points in the last quarter

BlueBaggerJosh

Captain Fyfe and Ballard need at least 30 points from both of you

BlueBaggerJosh

Thank God i fielded Libba over scott lol would’ve just deleted my team,
Dunkley thoooo….. do we trade him to a Boak type?
Only made the one trade thus far (Hanley the irish spud to Ballard)

Beezneez

Out of Dunkley or Heeney methinks.

GloryDays94

Do I trade Mundy? 73 and not even looking like going past that this week…..

Derek

He has made the decision very easy

64% TOG and NIL touches in last quarter, the game has gone past him

Will

Thoughts on Worpel?

Sam_01

Liking him a lot, playing pure mid, dunno if he makes the top 6 tho, am considering myself

BrownlowBoy

I was big on him pre season, didn't end up selecting him but seems like a good option.

Danners

Looks to have picked up the pieces from Titch. Not gonna lie, bloody tempted by him

Lazza

Over the season, who do you think will be Top 6… Worpel or Gunston ? Mind you, with the injuries to Shiels and Burgoyne it could be positive for Worpel.. or the whole house might come tumbling down..

2cents

for 20k more you can get a proven player who is averaging 20 points more. Do you think Worpel is a keeper?

Dermin8r

I'm seriously considering turning Heeney (85, 67) into Worpel (110, 92)

Hawk131415

Cmon Supercoach open, im in the mood for some rage trading!!

TOPHAWK1

That makes two of us. Billings and Goldy are two that are in my gun this week mate. Both scheit.

Hawk131415

I feel for the Goldy owners, not so much for Billings owners, hes a burn man, got me last year,,,id give Goldy one more shot, today he was terrible,,,

Vinny

Sam ‘The Interceptor’ Collins will keep his spot on my team after all.

hedski

Collins has just escaped the noose.

AuroraBorealis?!

Was hoping bailey scott would've gone at least up to 50 once the champion data server was back online, turns out he lost 2 points in a whole quarter!

KSinny

Love that I put butters off for him last second

AuroraBorealis?!

Ooh that hurts mate

Shake_n_bake

Mundy definitely gone next week!!!!!! Doesn’t even get the minutes. Nth and suns 1st up, why did l go there.

GloryDays94

Same mate. 73 and 40 are not good enough… Time to get rid of him

Shake_n_bake

100% gone 65 minutes game time cant cover the the ground plonks himself in the middle and just ball watches.

Derek

He has made the decision very easy

Game has moved past old man Mundy

Who to trade him for? Already ave Kelly

Ja191

Worpedo? I’m liking Dunkley to worp freeing up cash to go hore to moore

Sam_01

Dunkley is playing GC next week, bit brave

Ja191

Only way to get moore in, not liking his time in mids way too many wb mids

GloryDays94

Don't trade Dunkley….

KeenButClueless

Lycett Derek? Not because of this week’s points, although that high ceiling is encouraging, but for ruck cover. Bye friendly as well.

Shake_n_bake

Have a few options Derek Mundy to Kelly or might gamble with going down to Moore. Bank the coin then reassess

TOPHAWK1

Travis Boak Derek.

TOPHAWK1

Mundy is done, cooked, and dusted. Move him on mate. Have a look at Travis Boak as a replacement. Cheers mate.

KeenButClueless

I absolutely dodged that bullet. A very near miss. I was close to not starting Grundy, putting Lycett into R2 and having Mundy as F3. If I had been able to put the leftover Grundy money to good use, I would have done it. Instead I ran Lycett as F3. Those 50:50 decisions can really make or break the season, and at different times it might look different. But today I am so happy, that the other blemishes in my team look like nothing.

Dermin8r

Mundy was in and out of my team all pre-season, then just before Round 1 I went with Neale, dodged a bullet there.

AuroraBorealis?!

Could everyone do me a favour and not jump on Kelly this week? We all know that if everyone trades him in he'll have a stinker, it's the first rule of supercoach!

Beezneez

That's the worry.

COREYSC

I agree, he’s my pod haha

Patch

Allow me to be the first to apologise for ruining him

DEE

already in mine…. dark horse for the brownlow I reckon!

AuroraBorealis?!

Could definitely see him poll highly like brayshaw last year, i reckon he got the three points in rd 1

AuroraBorealis?!

How do I sad react on intensedebate?

Russty_

Right!…Jumping on Josh and Tim Kelly LOL

CaptainObvious

2315 could have been much better if I benched spudderfield instead of Parker. But on the other hand if Ridley and Hore hadn't been dropped I wouldn't have fielded Collins. Snakes and Ladders

KSinny

Only scored 2184 🙁 would had an extra 65 points if I hadn't of benched butters for Scott last second. How's everyone else's scores?

Ja191

Got the consistent 2222

Patch

Richie would be proud. Nipped me by one!

Sam_01

2270, was unfortunate to cop the Scott 20 onfield with butters and constable on bench, sucked in by last week

cash_cows

2190 with scott on field, instead of constable.

Yoo

2,227

TOPHAWK1

Ended up with 2188 after 2217 last week. (4405 for 2 rounds) Pretty happy to get a consistent start with 2 solid scores, not great but decent.

Iamme

2289 after 2120 last week Martin, Heeny and Goldstein all spudded up big time this week.

TOPHAWK1

4 points in it between us mate! You just ahead on 4409. We might be on the same screen when we check our rankings.

Holty01

2221. Scott onfield instead of Constable and starting Heeney the biggest disappointments this week

Big G

2358. Inside the top 1000 in my first time in doing sc for six years. Good call leav i by constable on the field and benching Scott.

Russty_

Bloody awesome this week Big G….that's a top-notch score this week, well done fella.

Big G

Thanks Russty.

Russty_

Stop yer whining, 2184 is a good score!…just joshin with ya Sinny, decent score this week, I think we all had Scott on field this week, what a bust!.

KSinny

😂😂 not a great start to the year only got 2086 last well then 2184 this week but I guess I started off last year pretty slow aswell

Russty_

I had 2000 exactly last week, 66000 lol, you're starting ok mate. Bloody Scott though ay?!

KSinny

Ik I wouldn't be as annoyed if it wasn't a last second decision to bring him in 😂 what rank did u end up last year?

NoLanguage96

2141. Heeney, Goldy and Dusty all turds 🙁

BrownlowBoy

Go Catters

COREYSC

Absolutely!

RoyWetard

Is there anyone that sees Dunkley's role as similar to Menegola's?

Sam_01

Ahhh sort of? I don’t think menners gets much centre bounce giggs, that said I didn’t watch the cats game this week
He more rotated through there with bont and Wallis while people rest forward etc

Lekdog

17 Centre Bounces attended, just missed targets on the day

Sam_01

I am an owner of jack Steele and saw him getting the tagger icon on fanfooty, he has been solid but his role has me worried, considering swapping to tkelly and switching kelly forward when the time comes, or even down to worp to free up cash. Any thoughts? I’ll probably just ride iit out but 30pts at half time and finishing on 100+ 2 weeks in a row has me worried

GloryDays94

115 and 100 is fine mate. Nothing to be worried about at all. He only needs a few more touches a game to go with his tackles and he will be flying. Don't waste a trade on him, not worth it trust me.

Sam_01

Probably just gonna back him in and hold if he starts to hard tag and stink it I can chop him up then
Just with sheed and others I don’t have thought I may preemptively avoid a potential decline in his scoring

GloryDays94

He was a tagger last year and played really well. 90-100 will be his flaw this year which is not bad

Russty_

He's alright Sam, maybe not top 8 though, but this game works in strange ways, there are several different ways to end up at a good rank.
Sometimes, sticking with a non top 8 mid, helps you to get em when you need em, at the end of the season.
Gotta make sure you have enough trades left though.

Sam_01

Look if he can just plod along at this average it would of put him right up there last year haha probably too 8 from memory, I’ve nailed all the rookie selections only thing I’ve missed is rocky and sheed and perhaps worpel
Apart from that sitting at top 3% 4400 points, other mids maybe just looking a bit better because it’s early season but already the guns are showing some inconsistencies
I guess the question is how worth is it to bring in sheed/rocky/worp it’s all a downgrade Banking 100k and losing no points

Willymack1234

Bye Mundy

Sam_01

Gee I was glad to go Dunkley over him, although not sold on the dunkman just yet

hedski

Neil how did you crack 6300 points after 2 rounds?
$50k in your skyrocket already!!! 👍🤣

hedski

Holty and Brownlow Boy you're up there too

TOPHAWK1

Holty had a huge score this week. He has left me behind in the rear view mirror. I think he is 132 points ahead of me now. Inside the top 1000 for both I think.

TOPHAWK1

Hehehehehe. Did Neil hack the SC game platform algorithm and flick a few points his way? And he thought we wouldn't notice? LOL

hedski

I think so Topps, the 3 I mentioned were all above 6300 points last I checked

Hawk131415

think they took my points, im on about 1500 after 2 rds

Yoo

dusty- tom Rockliff? or Sheed, Fyfe

NoLanguage96

I'm going Dusty to Fyfe

Finnius

2290 could have been 2350 without switching constable to Scott two minutes before the bounce! Feeling very confident in my team though.

I'm also holding Heeney – the Swans need him around the ball sooner rather than later. In a couple of weeks he'll be over the ankle and back where he belongs. Even as a forward he is still capable of averaging 90+. The forward line is so unpredictable at the moment that that is almost enough for a top 6 spot.

Anyone thinking of making any trades this week?

BlueBaggerJosh

really want Moore but can't seem to find a way to get him in without sacrificing a player i dont want to, oh well cant have them all

Russty_

Hi Finn, I have to wait on Greene's status and if a few rookies are named but I'm definitely looking to trade this week, I just got home from the Beach, wtf happened with Scott and Goldy today?…poxy scores.

BlueBaggerJosh

Kinda hoping Greene isnt named so i have an excuse to trade him down to Moore and setterfield up to Worpel

GloryDays94

Yep Mundy out… not sure who to go with though

AuroraBorealis?!

Travis Boak is the best option i think mate

NoLanguage96

Yep. Ridley to Constable via Duursma swing and Dusty to Fyfe.

hedski

I want to trade but Hore seems like my only problem, I think I should just hold and go into round 3 with 30 trades for the first time ever.

Lazza

Not thinking .. have to

Black Dog

Don’t do it!!

Andy

Boak or Kelly?

Fearthebeard

Thinking this too!

Also Bith heeney and dunkley to consider chopping?

BoltonsBlues

Kelly if i had to pick
Boak, Drew and Rockcliff all could be impacted by the return on Wines

Russty_

Kelly.

Russty_

Just got home, did Goldy's rucktime get reduced by Campbell, and did Scott get injured or was he just shizenhouzer?

NoLanguage96

Yeah his ruck time was reduced but he lacked intensity and didn't get his hands on it enough in general. Scott had a case of the second game blues hard, he'll be ok

Russty_

Cheers NL, disappointing those 2 but at least I got 2228 this week, big improvement on last week.

GloryDays94

Hey Russty. I have Goldy also mate, frustrating watching him not get the ball… thinking we have to hold him? I have to trade out Mundy this week sadly 🙁 73 and 35 are just not good signs at all

Russty_

Yeh think we have to holdy Goldy for now GD…35 is a bit akin to disastrous for Mundy, think he might have to go…..can you go to Worpel?…if you don't have him already ?looks like he could be ok.
I'm gonna back Goldy, could be his worst game for the year I hope.

GloryDays94

Worpel or would Boak/Kelly be better?

Russty_

Kelly best for sure!

GloryDays94

Only problem Is Kelly has a crap Bye and Boak a good one

Russty_

Stuff the byes mate…you'll make 10 trades before then.

Yeahnah

Port fans – anyone know when Hartlett will be back? He's sitting on my bench in my draft team, wondering if it's worth keeping him

DavidC

Not a Port fan but I believe he played in the SAFL on the weekend and should be available for selection. Should come straight in for Watts.

Doc

Hold both. Heeney will get over his niggle and Longmire is sure to realize he is needed for stoppages and center bounces. Dunkley just a down game, will continue to do well in midfield, doesn't look like anything will change that.

Twilightingale

Neither

Russty_

I think Kelly's better than both of them Rocksta.

Holty01

Have u used a trade yet? I’m going Kelly.

Anxious wait for Thursday night, does Balta come back, do Wilkie and Scott keep their spot, does Greene play?

Amon and Watts injuries strengthen the 4 Port rookies job security, Wines and Hartlett close to returning might have resulted in some very unlucky Port players making way for them.

Yeah much as I'd like to trade right now, gonna have to wait for what's happening with the rooks and Greene karate kicking champion flog…lol

Lazza

According to Cameron, Greene is 50/50 to play This week..

Russty_

Reckon I'll pish him off for Kelly, bandaid off quick!

Twilightingale

Very unlikely I’ll trade Dusty but half tempted to go Dusty & Greene for Lloyd & LDU.
Lloyd the only player I’m worried about hurting me that I don’t have. Continuing his form form last year. Also gets rid of two potential headaches.

Justin

Anyone know what happened to Coniglio and Westoff?

cash_cows

Didn't watch but fanfooty said he was tagged.

Yeahnah

Didnt watch either game but fanfooty said Hutchings was tagging Coniglio. Not sure about Westhoff

Twilightingale

Neither player is capable of averaging 150 for a whole season. The negative outliers (this week) balance out the positive outliers (last week) in their scoring

Russty_

Cogs got tagged by Hutchings, and Lycett scored 167 in the Ruck, Westhoff, not 5 goals this week, and not much ball. Maybe he was hungover.

Justin

Thanks guys

DavidC

Cogs tagged by Hutchins. Westoff playing a shitty forward role, he needed 5 goals last week to score well.

Hoff always throws up half a dozen spud games and Coniglio was a trap that sprung shut.

GloryDays94

Mundy to Boak or Kelly?

Russty_

Out of those 2, who are doing quite well, I'd go Kelly. he was a rookie last year and is now a premo, much like Oliver was in his second year, Boak is older and not as exciting.

cash_cows

Kelly for sure

poloko48

Scored 2162 this week after a 2105 last week, bit of a slow start but only 2 rounds in so early days. Using both trades this week to flick a couple of underperforming midpricers and getting the 2 cashcows I haven't already got.

OUT Tobias IN Parker
OUT McGrath IN Constable

Leaves me with a massive $620K in the bank and the following team:

DEF: Lloyd, Williams, Smith, Scrimshaw, Clark, Duursma (Collins, Hore)
MID: Jelwood, Dusty, Brayshaw, Libba, Cousins, Walsh, Drew, Scott (Butters, Constable, Gibbons)
RUC: Grundy, Gawn (Bines)
FWD: Danger, Hoff, Heeney, Dahl, Moore, Petruccelle (Setterfield, Parker)

Hopefully won't be too far back when I'm ready to start upgrading to premo!

Benjiherb

Your doing well if ya scored 2100+ an have 600k in the bank .

NoLanguage96

What if Greene is named this week? Set to only miss one

Benjiherb

Yeap comrads I put two duds in my team which one you think I should trade this week Jack Steven (was hoping for old form) or Sam Jacobs . Can only trade one as I've traded Wilkie for Parker.

poloko48

Jacobs hurt his ankle Friday night so he might be doubtful next week anyway.

AuroraBorealis?!

CHOO CHOO

All aboard the Rocky train fellas, shoulders are better and he's looking far more confident around the ball. Would've cracked 150 if the weather didn't turn to sh*t and he didnt start getting tagged.

It's a big risk but if it pays off it'll put me ahead of the pack. I normally play SC very conservatively but this year i'm gonna just have a crack, here's hoping Wines coming back in doesn't effect him too badly

Doc

He's looking the goods, much fitter than last year, would love to slot him in my midfield but sadly nowhere to put him. Would have upgraded Libba to him if Libba was poor today but turned out to do (really) well. It's a risk, but definitely a risk worth taking.
