Around the Grounds – Round 4 Rookie Scout Report

Hello Community and welcome to Around the Grounds for Round 4. It’s been a bit of a messy round, with some mixed scoring coming, especially from the forward area of our teams. Luckily for us we still have some options coming through that may help us going forward. So let’s go take a look and see what Round 4 provided for us!

Victoria

Collingwood

The pies had a quality win on Friday night, taking care of the Bulldogs 78-64. Darcy Moore finished with 20 disposals, 5 marks and 8 rebound 50’s, but only managed 65 SCPoints from it. Maybe slightly disappointing given it’s his highest disposal count this year, but he also had 8 turnovers, which is about as many as he had in the previous three games combined (9). His BE is 42 this week, which he should comfortably hit, but he’s starting to get towards the upper end of what scores in the 70-80 will price him at. Still a solid piece that you should be able to put as a final upgrade option if he can keep up his average scoring pace though.

The VFL Collingwood side couldn’t replicate the form of the main one, going down to the Footscray Bulldogs 112-40. Rupert Wills (MID, $116,100) had 28 disposals, 5 marks, 6 tackles and 6 inside 50’s and Isaac Quaynor (DEF, $153,300) had 20 disposals, 3 marks, 3 tackles and 4 rebound 50’s.

Carlton

Carlton fell in the last seconds of the game, losing to the Suns 59-57. Sam Walsh continued to be the pace setter among our rookie picks and has probably already taken the mantle as the second best player at the Blues already. He had 28 disposals, 6 marks, 6 tackles, 5 inside 50’s, 7 clearances and a goal for 123 SCPoints. He gained $71,900 with that performance and with a BE of -35 he has the potential to add that much again to his price.

Will Setterfield had 16 disposals, 8 marks, 2 tackles and 8 inside 50’s, but also added 6 clangers which put his score at 54 SCPoints. He very well could be facing a suspension thanks to a dangerous tackle, he has a BE of 22 this week which he should hit if he does play however. Michael Gibbons 16 disposals, 3 marks and 54 SCPoints. Had his chances in front of goal, but kicked 3 behinds. His BE is 16 this week, which he’ll hit, but his cash generation could be coming to an end soon if he doesn’t improve his scoring.

The Northern Blues had a close win against Geelong, defeating them 68-67. Liam Stocker (MID, $126,300) had 15 disposals, 5 marks and 7 rebound 50’s and Angus Schumacher (DEF, $123,900) had 14 disposals, 3 marks and 5 rebound 50’s.

Essendon

The Bombers continued their strong recent form, handing Brisbane their first loss of the year with a 112-65 win. Jordan Ridley had 17 disposals and 9 marks for 73 SCPoints. He’s just had his first price rise and gained $32,800, his BE of 17 this week should see him add another $20K-$25K if he can put up another score in the 70’s. Zac Clarke had 11 disposals, 3 marks and 9 hitouts, but 6 clangers thanks to 4 frees against put his score at 64 SCPoints. He’s on the bubble this week with a BE of -30.

Essendon’s VFL side had a bye this week, they will return on Saturday morning when they take on North Melbourne.

Geelong

It was neck and neck in the second half, but Geelong fell just short at home, losing 79-75 to GWS. Charlie Constable had 16 disposals, 3 marks and 7 tackles for 60 SCPoints. Tom Atkins had 14 disposals, 6 marks, 4 tackles and 68 SCPoints while Jordan Clark had just 7 disposals, 4 marks and 2 rebound 50’s for 53 SCPoints. Gryan Miers added 12 disposals, 5 marks and a goal for 65 SCPoints and Mark O’Connor had 13 disposals, 7 marks and 2 tackles for 56 SCPoints.

Constable still has a BE in the negative territory at -4, so he’ll keep for a bit longer. Atkins BE has risen to 4 this week, Clark has seen his push up to 15 and Miers is at -1, with O’Connor facing a big BE of 64. The first 4 are all safe in their spots for now with no immediate moves being needed for any of them.

Geelong’s VFL side had a narrow 68-67 loss to the Northern Blues on Sunday. Oscar Brownless (MD, $117,300) kicked 2.2 with 20 disposals, 3 marks and 2 inside 50’s, Darcy Fort (RUC, $117,300) also kicked 2.2 with 10 disposals, 5 marks and 7 hitouts.

Hawthorn

Hawthorn lead for the majority of the game, but a slow 4th quarter again cost them, losing to St Kilda 74-69. Jack Scrimshaw had a great game with 23 disposals and 8 marks for 98 SCPoints. That’s pushed his BE to -13, so he should have a good couple of weeks of cash generation while the 98 remains in his rolling average. James Cousins finished with 24 disposals, 9 inside 50’s and 5 clearances for 75 SCPoints. His BE is 37 this week.

The Box Hill Hawks had a big 100-59 win over Sandringham in the VFL. Conor Glass (DEF, $210,100) had 22 disposals, 5 marks and 5 tackles, Harrison Jones (DEF, $123,900) had 22 disposals, 5 tackles and a goal and Jackson Ross (FWD, $123,900) kicked 3.1 with 16 disposals, 5 marks and 3 tackles.

Melbourne

Melbourne recorded their first win of 2019, defeating Sydney 100-78. Marty Hore was a late addition and was solid with 20 disposals, 9 marks and 8 rebound 50’s for 86 SCPoints. Jayden Hunt had a big game with 13 disposals, 2 goals and 7 tackles for 110 SCPOints, Braydon Preuss played his first AFL game for the Demons and had 11 disposals, 13 hitouts and 2 goals for 76 SCPoints. Corey Wagner had 10 disposals, 3 marks and 4 tackles for 59 SCPoints and Sam Weideman finished with 9 disposals, 3 marks and a goal for 75 SCPoints.

Hore is on the bubble this week still priced at $117,300. He has a BE of -75, I would assume he’d keep his spot in the side after that performance, so he could be a viable trade in option this week.

The Casey Demons had a 119-65 win over North Melbourne in the VFL. Tom Sparrow (MID, $117,300) had 19 disposals, 3 marks and 7 tackles and Declan Kielty (DEF, $123,900) kicked 1.1 with 14 disposals, 7 marks and 7 tackles.

North Melbourne

North Melbourne had their first win of the year, with a 71-59 win against Adelaide. Luke Davies-Uniacke finished with 17 disposals, 4 marks and 2 tackles for 60 SCPoints. He’s popped up over $300K now, but had a higher starting price and is facing a BE of 53, with scores of 64 and 60 in his last two games. He should hit his BE this week, but with that Round 2 score of 118 SCPoints rolling out his average soon he’ll need to produce another good game if he’s to make any more real money. Tarryn Thomas also played and he had 8 disposals, 2 marks and 4 tackles for 41 SCPoints. He had a minor price rise of $9,600 and his BE is 30 this week. Doesn’t look like he’ll produce much this year.

North Melbourne’s VFL side had a 119-65 loss to the Casey Demons. Nick Larkey (FWD, $123,900) kicked 3 goals with 8 disposals, 3 marks and 9 hitouts.

Richmond

Richmond had a gutsy win away from home, defeating Port Adelaide 99-92. Liam Baker had his first AFL game of 2019 and produced 17 disposals, 3 marks and a goal for 91 SCPoints. Shai Bolton also played his first AFL game of 2019 and had 11 disposals, 5 tackles and a goal for 75 SCPoints. Sydney Stack had 11 disposals and 5 marks for 40 SCPoints and Jack Ross made his AFL debut with 25 disposals, 4 marks, 5 tackles and 4 clearances for 87 SCPoints. A good debut, but as we just saw with Sydney Stack, don’t trade in a rookie off the back of one good game. Noah Balta also played and had 10 disposals, 3 marks and 5 hitouts for 14 SCPoints. He’s now lost $4,200 on his starting price and has a BE of 25, which you’d think he could hit, but that’s not a guarantee with him unfortunately.

Richmonds VFL side had a 92-49 win against Port Melbourne. Fraser Turner (MID, $117,300) had 22 disposals, 4 marks, 5 inside 50’s and 4 rebound 50’s, Patrick Naish (DEF, $123,900) finished with 19 disposals, 7 marks and 2 behinds and Mabior Chol (FWD, $102,400) kicked 2.2 with 13 disposals, 8 marks and 4 hitouts.

St Kilda

The Saints continue to be a bit of a surprise packet this year, notching up their third win with a 74-69 victory over Hawthorn. Callum Wilkie had 21 disposals, 3 marks and 3 rebound 50’s for 112 SCPoints. He’s still not completely out of touch priced at $214,000 and has a BE of -42 this week, though his scoring has been a bit inconsistent so far. Matthew Parker spent some time in the rooms which limited him to 66% ToG and he had 5 disposals and 4 marks for 32 SCPoints. He has a BE of 46 this week with scores of 47 and 32 over his last two games, if he can score back in the 60’s over the next fortnight that BE will go back down to single digit territory by Round 7. Josh Battle had 16 disposals, 7 marks and 6 rebound 50’s for 59 SCPoints and Ben Paton played his first AFL game of the year and had 15 disposals, 3 marks and 52 SCPoints.

The Sandringham Zebras lost to the Box Hill Hawks 100-59 in the VFL. Nick Hind (MID, $117,300) had 39 disposals, 9 marks, 2 tackles and a goal and Doultan Langlands (MID/FWD, $123,900) had 20 disposals, 5 marks and 7 tackles.

Western Bulldogs

The Bulldogs got in front in the 4th quarter, but just couldn’t hang on, losing to Collingwood 78-64. Bailey Smith had 13 disposals, 3 marks, 2 tackles and a goal for 75 SCPoints. His BE is -9 this week and he’s really started to hit some decent form after a shaky debut, with a 3 round average currently sitting at 76 SCPoints.

Footscray had a big 112-40 win in their VFL match against Collingwood. Lukas Webb (FWD, $249,200) had 28 disposals, 10 marks and kicked 2.3 and Rhylee West (MID, $117,300) kicked 2 goals with 16 disposals, 4 marks and 2 tackles.

South Australia

Adelaide

Adelaide were again largely unimpressive, going down to North Melbourne 71-59 in the Roos first win of the season. Chayce Jones had just 3 disposals, 1 mark and 1 behind, but was benched after the first quarter due to concussion. I think he’ll likely be back in the SANFL this week if he recovers. Reilly O’Brien had 16 disposals, 6 marks, 5 tackles and 14 hitouts, but 4 frees against hit him for a score of 84 SCPoints. He too likely finds himself back in the SANFL with Sam Jacobs return imminent, but currently has a BE of -89. Finally, Myles Poholke had 15 disposals, 6 marks and 2 tackles for 62 SCPoints, also likely back in the SANFL next week.

Things were slightly better for the reserves side, having a 100-77 win over Woodsville West-Torrens. Patrick Wilson (MID, $147,700) had 42 disposals, 11 marks, 5 clearances and 10 inside 50’s, Lachlan Sholl (DEF, $117,300) had 25 disposals, 9 marks and 6 inside 50’s while Tyson Stengle (FWD, $123,900) kicked 2.5 with 15 disposals and 4 marks.  

Port Adelaide

It was a back and forth battle, but the Power just fell short of grabbing the W, losing to Richmond 99-92. Xavier Duursma had 17 disposals, 4 marks and 2 tackles for 73 SCPoints. His BE is 0 this week, so unless he totally stinks up the joint to unprecedented levels he’ll still make some more cash this week. Willem Drew was better this week with 16 disposals, 5 marks and a goal for 61 SCPoints. He had 4 clangers thanks to 4 frees against, but it does look like his scoring is going to take a dip with Wines back in the side. His BE is 36 this week, but that should lower next week once the Round 3 score of 36 rolls out his average. Connor Rozee had 12 disposals, 4 tackles and 4 clangers for 53 SCPoints. His BE is 10 this week, which could jump up to the 60 range next week once the Round 3 score of 116 is out of his rolling average. Finally, Zak Butters had 11 disposals, 6 marks and 4 clangers for 23 SCPoints. His BE is 48, but should lower to the 30 range by Round 7 once this score is out his rolling average provided he can get some scores in the 60-70 range over the next fortnight.

The Port Adelaide Magpies had a 107-86 win against the reigning SANFL premiers North Adelaide. Surprise surprise, Jack Trengove (MID, $235,600) was the main ball winner for Port, collecting 35 disposals, 14 marks and 3 tackles. Kai Pudney (MID, $102,400) had 33 disposals and 9 marks and Peter Ladhams (RUC, $123,900) kicked 2 goals with 21 disposals, 6 marks and 17 hitouts.

Western Australia

Fremantle

1.9 at the end of the half was a hurdle too much to overcome for the Dockers, who won the 2nd half, but fell short to West Coast in the WA derby, losing 69-56. Lachlan Schultz returned to the AFL side and had 8 disposals, 2 marks and 2 tackles for 36 SCPoints. He had a $25,000 price rise, but already has a BE of 13.

The WAFL derby (Sounds like a breakfast disaster or something) also occurred with the Peel Thunder losing to West Coast 77-50. Tom North (MID, $123,900) led the Thunder with 28 disposals, 4 marks and 7 tackles while Mitch Crowden (FWD, $234,000) had 26 disposals, 4 marks and 8 tackles and Luke Valente (MID, $117,300) played his first game of the year and had 19 disposals, 2 marks and 6 tackles.

West Coast

West Coast only managed 4 goals in the 2nd half, but had done enough in the 1st to still take a 69-56 win over Fremantle in the Perth derby. Josh Rotham had 17 disposals and 7 marks for 98 SCPoints. He’s on the bubble this week @ $123,900 in defence with a BE of -82. One score of 50 and one score of 98, makes it hard to judge him at this stage. Oscar Allen finished with 8 disposals, 4 marks and kicked 1.2 for 58 SCPoints and Jack Petruccelle did all his work in the first quarter, with 2 goals

The Eagles one the first WAFL Derby, defeating the Peel Thunder 77-50. Matthew Allen (MID/FWD, $123,900) had 25 disposals, 4 marks and 3 tackles and Hamish Brayshaw (MID, $123,900) had 22 disposals, 4 marks and 8 tackles.

New South Wales

GWS

The Giants had a quality win on Saturday, defeating Geelong in Geelong 79-75. Brent Daniels had 12 disposals, 3 marks and 3 tackles for 63 SCPoints.

The UWS Giants had a big loss in the NEAFL, losing to Brisbane 130-35. Jackson Hately (MID, $148,800) had 27 disposals and 7 maarks and Zach Sproule (MID/FWD, $123,900) kicked 2 goal with 15 disposals and 6 marks.

Sydney

The Swans were competitive in the first half, but Melbourne clamped down on them in the 2nd with Sydney losing to Melbourne 100-78.Nick Blakey had 5 disposals, 1 mark and 1 tackle for 31 SCPoints while Justin McInerney had his AFL debut and finished with 1 disposal and 2 tackles for 21 SCPoints, with only 56% ToG.

Sydney had a 110-72 win over the Gold Coast in their Round 2 NEAFL matchup. James Rowbottom (MID, $117,300) kicked 3 goals with 26 disposals, 4 marks, 3 tackles and 6 inside 50’s. Darcy Cameron (RUC, $135,700) had 17 disposals, 7 marks, 25 hitouts and 2 goals and James Bell (MID/FWD, $123,900) had 26 disposals, 4 marks, 2 tackles and a goal.

Queensland

Brisbane

Brisbane had their first loss of the year, losing to Essendon 112-65. Lincoln McCarthy finished with 12 disposals, 3 marks and a goal for 40 SCPoints. He’s almost doubled his ownership percentage since the start of the season, but has a BE of 58 heading into this week.

Brisbane had a huge 130-35 win over the UWS Giants in their NEAFL match. Corey Lyons (MID, $123,900) led the Lions with 29 disposals, 6 marks and a goal and Toby Wooler (FWD, $123,900) had 25 disposals, 11 marks and 6 inside 50’s.

Gold Coast

It wasn’t pretty, but it was gutsy and the Suns continued to defy expectations, taking their third win in four games, defeating Carlton 59-57. Sam Collins again had some strong intercept play with 12 disposals and 5 marks for 87 SCPoints. He looked like a shaky buy after Round 1, but has produced a 3 round average of 84 since then and has a BE of -3 this week. Charlie Ballard had 16 disposals and 5 marks for 48 SCPoints, Chris Burgess had 6 disposals and 2 marks for 30 SCPoints. His BE is 27, but hasn’t really set the world on fire as a selection and now has Josh Corbett pushing for a spot also. Jack Lukosius finished with 6 disposals, 1 mark and 6 tackles for 29 SCPoints and Wil Powell had just 4 disposals for 11 SCPoints, but only had 34% ToG after being left dazed after a heavy tackle from Will Setterfield.

The Suns reserves side lost to Sydney 110-72 in their NEAFL match. Josh Corbett (FWD, $123,900) kicked 3.3 with 18 disposals and 10 marks and Tom Nicholls (RUC, $224,000) had 19 disposals, 3 marks, 35 hitouts and a goal.

    Nice work Barron, thinking of a double downgrade this week,,

  2. dontblushbaby says:

    Thanks Barron, excellent work, however Stack had 40 points, his projected is 74 points

  3. Jye says:

    Which 2 rookies do we cut first

    • Russty_ says:

      Setterfield and ….any one this week who isn't looking like making much profit.

      • Hawk131415 says:

        I have to bench that spud Russty, gone a double downgrade but could maybe NOT get Stack in, but then will miss his price rise and with Short out he should keep his spot for another few weeks,

        • Russty_ says:

          Can you afford to bench Setterfield for 3 weeks mate?…I was gonna go Scott out but now it can be Setterfield, he's earned his omission.

          • DEE says:

            100% agree with Rusty… Setterfield has to go!

            • Hawk131415 says:

              Yeah its a tough one for me because of what i want to do, but can always trade him next week, just not this week, unless Stack not named then he'll go this week!

  4. D Reckin says:

    Do we jump on Rowan Marshall this week averaging 114? Only has to average 95-100 for the season to be a win. Looks like a top 8 fwd at this rate.

  5. Keenbutclueless says:

    Thanks Barron. Looks like all the key rookies are a hold for another week. Only 3 to really consider – Burgess, Scott and Balta.

    For Burgess – a straight Defence trade would be to bring in Rotham or Hore. With Hore being a late call up, not sure about his job security, despite his good game. Also Rotham’s job security is a little questionable at this stage. I am fielding Duursma and Scrimshaw at the moment, with Clark on the bench. So, if I was bringing either in, it would only be as a bench sitter. Doesn’t feel like enough cash generation upside for those trades.

    Can bring Moore up, but this would put Duursma or Scrimshaw on the bench. Would be playing lesser rookies onfield. Again, doesn’t feel like a strong move.

    For Scott, Stack seems the obvious. But with his big score going out quickly, I am not so sure. Think I might prefer to see Ross for one more week and leave Scott on the bench.

    For Balta, again it’s probably Stack, with Drew moving forward. Again would rather wait a week. I haven’t given up on Balta yet – despite the obvious. Seen him two weeks in a row and I just feel there is something there. Unless he gets dropped, I can see myself leaving him on the bench for a while and back my gut.

    • DEE says:

      @ Richmond…. JS in order of the 3 rookies would be – Ross, Stack then Balta. Agree? Remember…. Dusty is back this week and maybe Cotchin. Something's gotta give…. My advice is get rid of Balta for Stack this week if named or Ross next week. Balta should have never been on anyone's SC team this year, scores poorly every week and does nothing for the team but keeps getting named… very similar to Gibbons I suppose, both lucky to be named every week. Although I reckon Gibbons would have been a better selection than Balta… Just! I think a lot of coaches would have been decieved from that one game Balta had in the JLT, eye catching performance but now looking back…. it was just a flash in the pan, nothing more nothing less. In saying that, I'm having one of my worst SC seasons since I started in 2008…. currently ranked around 58K, so hey what do I know. I haven't done a lot right this year…. but not selecting Balta is one small tick for me! CCAAARNNNN THE CAAATTTSSSS!!!

  6. Shake_n_bake says:

    Wow what a stressful sc weekend for me!! My phone crashed Friday night coming home from the footy. Worked over 20 hrs on the weekend with no phone no sc excess no score updates couldn’t get my emg Atkins score had to play butters lucky l had Grundy as vc Bines as capt brought in Bont for Fyfe before Fridays game. Sund morning before work l checked the scores in my leagues and in two of them, with only the same players left Parker l was losing to Derek and another league by 18 and 15 so l put setterfield on and just seen l won by 3pts and 8pts!!

    • Russty_ says:

      Nice Shake, lucked out there, Setterfield gone for a few weeks now though.

      • Shake_n_bake says:

        Very lucky there Russty!!!!! But would have been spewing if l lost because l couldn’t get Atkins on had him as emg would have took his 68. Had to play butters lost 45pts

    • Derek says:

      That was the only match I lost.

      I looked at the scores Sunday morning and saw that I had you beat by 11 and we had no PODs except I had Setterfield on field and you had Parker.

      I decided to cover your Parker with my Parket and put Setterfield on bench. It was coin toss anyway and I had all my other league games won.

      But I didn’t reckon for the informace SHAKE N BAKE FAKE

      I checked a minute after game and you had switched Setterfield on the field.

      My concern soon turned to laughter when I saw Setterfield was on 22 at half time. But the SC Gods can be cruel and struck Parker down in the first half on 18sc. Setterfield had dragged himself to 29 at 3/4 time, we were tied.

      In a final twist, Parker rose from his hospital bed and took to the field in a desperate bid to win me my match. And at the full time siren, I was 1 point behind, surely CD can give the young fella a scaled point or two. Lost by 3.

      The old shake n bake fake!

      • Shake_n_bake says:

        The only change l could do to win! Parker and Parker of course l lose. Must off just made the change after yours. Couldn’t believe l couldn’t get no excess to sc at all till about lunch time today. And seen it worked. Didn’t watch any match over the weekend but before l went to work Sunday just checked my head to head matches on the laptop and made the switch. Great game thou buddy!!

  7. Russty_ says:

    Danger gets off with a $2000 fine but Setterfield cops a two match ban for rough contact against Will Powell.

  8. JEL says:

    Any news on Oliver? Apart from 1 game, has been quite poor.
    With Gawn doing well I'd expect him to be more involved, but he doesn't appear to be.

    • Russty_ says:

      I can't afford anymore sideways trades JEL, gotta stick with rednut I think, he'll get back to his old self.

      • DEE says:

        Apart from 1 game?
        JEL what do you mean mate?

        • Russty_ says:

          Scored 141 in round 2 DEE.

        • JEL says:

          71, 141, 95 & 87.
          The 141 is the only 100+ score, not the sort of numbers you like to see for a 622k player.
          Current Avg is 98, last year it was 114 so there is a fair drop.

          • DEE says:

            oh okay… I thought you meant he’s out for 1 week through suspension, my bad. I was totally out of context, thanks lads!

  9. JEL says:

    So, how does your team stack up with the the current top scoring players?
    I've currently got:
    DEF – 1 of the top 6
    MID – 3 of the top 8
    RUC – 1 of the top 2 (though my R2 is 4th)
    FWD – 2 of the top 6

    It's going to be a long road. Either some of my "premos" need to step up, or I'll need to find a way to trade in 14 top scorers.

  10. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Trade in Boak or Whitfield this week?
    By the end of the year will want them both. Thinking Whitfield as he plays in the same side as the in form tagger of the competition and boak might be up against hutchings this week

    Apparently Fyfe not likely to get up this week….. brilliant

    • ZzZCalintZzZ says:

      I called it early. Guy got whacked twice in the one motion. Yes he is a beast player but everyone has the same skull. Boxers can build the neck and chin but hit Sweet behind the ear or back of the head and they fall. Fyfe wont be 130+ for a few weeks back too.

      • DEE says:

        Calint you did too…. I remember you pointing this out clearly, so in all honesty. So you think he'll miss next week as well, or just 2 weeks. Surely if he doesn't get up this week he would definitely be back Round 6 right? I also remember you pointing it out as well that hen he does come back…. It's gonna be another 2 – 4 weeks before he gets back to his best cause just like you said mate, he's brain would be fried severely! I traded him out last week after reading what you had to say…. and you made a lot of sense. Talking about this again just made me see the image of the whole impact going through my head, makes me feel sick. Anyways I traded him in to replace Dusty and last week traded out Fyfe for Lloyd…. burned 2 trades there from sideways trading! I've written off Fyfe this year…. As much as I love the bloke, I don't think I'll be bringing him back in later on in the season. In 2020…. I promise I will start you in my team mate! #FyfeLife2020

    Who has the best JS – Rotham or Hore ?

    What to do with Crisp community? Any pies supporters think his role has changed?

    • TelescopicCox says:

      I think the game plan has changed. Crisp last year was great at breaking the lines, however with this possession game we're playing, he's sharing the cheap points with Howe, Moore and Roughy.

      I'm hoping he comes good. He did get a lot of it against the Tigers

    Williams/Simpson OUT. Whitfield IN. Thoughts?

  15. theI_inteam says:

    So my R2 situation is a right old mess currently i have Vardy at R2 and Clarke at R3 and about 32k in the bank. Currently i am thinking of trading out Vardy and bringing in either Mummy, Preuse or English, thoughts?

    Thoughts on Butters down to Stack?? My reasons for this are; Butters has slightly peaked he has be of 48 and he verses the Eagles this week, then North and Collingwood. All three of these teams have good midfielders and I can’t see him scoring that well!!

  17. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    Got a feeling Nick Hind will debut this week…

  18. FearTheBeard says:

    Love a few peoples thoughts if possible if you can spare a minute. I've got the odd opinion but this has been doing my head in!

    Neale IN Leaves my weakest Mid is Constable, weakest D is Clark and weakest F is Parker/Petrucelle.

    Whitfield IN Leaves my weakest Mid is Duurmsa, Hore weakest D and Parker/Petrucelle as my F6

    Heeney/Boak (which 1 if this IN) leaves Butters/Stack/Scott/Atkins as weakest Mid, Hore weakest D , and Drew as my F6

  19. Binga says:

    Thoughts on Goldy down to Mummy and Butters down to Stack?? My reasons for this are; Butters has slightly peaked he has be of 48 and he verses the Eagles this week, then North and Collingwood. All three of these teams have good midfielders and I can’t see him scoring that well!! My thoughts going down to Mummy is he still has a negative breakeven scoring well and upgrade him to Gawn at around the byes!!

    Is Butters to Stack a must this week if Butters isn’t named this round
