Panic Room | Round 14

Published by Fozdaddy on

It’s finally here, community. The big, bad, scary bye round that we’ve all been waiting for and hoping to avoid. Personally, at the start of the week I was looking at having 20, but rookie carnage has left me with 17. So panicking with you feels appropriate.

Newz you can Uze

Cam Guthrie will make a welcomed return for many SuperCoaches on Friday night, with Shaun Higgins managed. Quinton Narkle stays out of the side, and I for one can’t wait to pick him for the Hawks next season. The Bulldogs will make no changes.

Gold Coast Suns will bring in a pair of Sams, with Sam Collins and Sam Day returning to the line up. Caleb Graham and Malcolm Rosas were dropped, which is annoying if you were relying on Rosas as a rookie on field. Scott Lycett returns from his four game suspension alongside Jarrod Lienert, with Riley Bonner and Todd Marshall left out of the side.

North Melbourne has brought back Luke McDonald, which may effect some popular SuperCoach selections. Jack Ziebell and Aaron Hall may have kick-in duties relaxed, but both players love to mop up possessions out the back of contests so hopefully the damage is minimal. Taylor Garner was injured and will miss. James Madden returns at the perfect time for owners, with Dayne Zorko cancelling that out for some people.

Kieran Briggs has been brought in for his second game with Shane Mumford out. If you don’t have him I wouldn’t look to bring him in, it’s been months between games. Harry Perryman and Phil Davis both return to the Giants lineup after extended absences, which may positively affect Josh Kelly and Nick Haynes, as Perryman will play a wing role and Davis a lockdown job. Lachie Ash was dropped, along with Xavier O’Halloran. Lachie Fogarty, Matthew Kennedy and Luke Parks come into the Carlton side, with Matthew Cottrell, Marc Murphy and Will Setterfield all dropped.

Hawthorn has named Lachie Bramble ($102k MID) to debut on Sunday, while Tyler Brockman, James Cousins, Emerson Jeka and Connor Nash have come into the extended squad. Harry Morrison has been dropped, and James Worpel will miss through suspension. Essendon has swung five changes at this stage, with Pat Ambrose, Aaron Francis, Andrew McGrath, Alec Waterman and David Zaharakis all out for a variety of reasons. Ned Cahill, Tom Cutler, Sam Draper, Zach Reid, Devon Smith, Peter Wright, Brandon Zerk-Thatch and Sam Durham have been brought into the extended squad.

When a price breaks, it don’t Breakeven

What am I s’posed to do, when Imma lose some cash from holding you:

  • 237 – Matt Rowell
  • 221 – Matt Kennedy
  • 210 – Luke McDonald
  • 191 – Pat Dangerfield
  • 180 – Mitch Duncan

What am I s’posed to say, when you’re making coin by scoring okay:

  • -40 – Max Holmes
  • -40 – James Madden
  • -33 – Jai Newcombe
  • 4 – Connor Stone
  • 8 – Quinton Narkle

Oh Captain my Captain

Friday night will play host to a number of big names in the SuperCoach community. Jack Macrae averages 112 over his last three encounters with the Cats, while Marcus Bontempelli averages 121.3 across the three contests too. Both Dogs are averaging over 144 across their three-round average before their byes. Tom Stewart averages 107 over his last three against Western Bulldogs, and is averaging 112 over his last three games this season.

Jarryd Lyons is playing North Melbourne this week and has the potential to go big. His last three scores against North averages out at 123 points per contest, with a high score of 165. Lachie Neale averages 124 points per contest over his last three against the Kangaroos, but averages 139 over his last two. He’s recently back from injury, so would be a POD captaincy choice but a risky one at that.

Darcy Parish doesn’t have a great career average against Hawthorn, with a 91 and 110 in his last two. But he is averaging over 150 points in his last three games this season, and Hawthorn can’t win a clearance, so he should go huge. Zach Merrett has scored a 145 and a 138 in his last two games against Hawthorn, and is coming off a 137 before the Bombers bye, so he’s also a great option.

Bont, macrae, Miller, jelly
Who do I go for vc and c?

Lazza

I’m Bont’ing into Jelly

Hugh

Jelly into Titch

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Bont into Merrett for me.

FearTheBeard

Same for me with only Titch thinking?

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Titch or Merrett for C in the last game works I think.

derek

the Dogs are playing Geelong at geelong. How do you think they will go?

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Not great, but that’s why I have a C.

Rick Grimes

Titch last 5 scores v Bombers 135, 122, 153, 127, 116.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

If I do one trade it will be getting Titch in.

Rick Grimes

Is Macrae worth the $100k over say Walsh? I’m tempted to save cash and hope Sammy boy can come home with a wet sail.

Russty_

Hey mate, I reckon Macrae is worth whatever his price tag is, but Walshy’s going great guns this year, if he keeps averaging 115 it’s a win, you could possibly make up the other 10 or so points with your 100k somewhere else.

Russty_

Wines into Kelly for me Fozzy, never thought I’d say those words lol.

Russty_

Has anyone dissected Newcombe’s score as to what it would’ve been without the 14 tackles?…Just don’t wanna bring in a dud at this stage with bugger all trades left.
Cheers guys

Lekdog

Roughly 50 points less

Big G

he is only bench cover – as long as he gets 50-70 each week he does his job.

derek

i was at the game. he played better than his score suggested. He worked really hard off the ball, The other hawks didn’t look for him, but that might change if he gets a few more games.

Hugh

Russty, the point is the other way around. Newcombe averages 10 tackles at VFL level (so 14 was no fluke). He also averages 23 possessions (30 in his last 5 VFL games). If his possessions go up rather than his tackle numbers go down, The Duke becomes a $102k player worthy of fielding in your best 22 for Rounds 15+.

Russty_

cheers lads much appreciated.

Lazza

Russty, I think you should wait another week to see how he goes… 🤥
Can’t have you getting another player on the ground… 😜

Russty_

Sorry bud too late, Hugh talked me into it. 🙂

Cheat Sheet Supreme

What is L. Edwards (WCE) chance of continuing to get a game? downgrading Waterman into him this week lets me afford Mitchell and Dale and I can’t see any other good rookie options. Already have Newcombe and trading in Briggs

Last edited 3 months ago by Cheat Sheet Supreme
Lekdog

Don’t think it’s great. They have a few players to come back in West Coast. WOuldn;t be going early on Edwards

Cheat Sheet Supreme

yeah thought he might get pushed out. It’s probably a choice between him (lowish chance of making me some coin, I can cover with newcombe/bianco) or bringing in a cheapo mid/fwd dpp so I can cover a bit easier if required

Hugh

I’d wait on Round 15 teams. If no L. Edwards but Bramble gets a 2nd game. Go Bramble, arguably better JS as Hawks now playing kids not chasing a Finals berth.

Hugh

or just go Bramble $102k now, Hawks rarely give a kid only 1 game & Morrison is injured.

Greendale

Using the four trades this week and will have 18 on field. Daniher will be my last non premo, with Coleman Jones as my 23rd man. Bont will come in for Daniher some time in the next few weeks and my final team will be as follows:
DEF: Laird, Lloyd, Docherty, Short, Ridley, May
MID: Bont, Oliver, Macrae, Lyons, Kelly, Wines, Merrett, Walsh
RUC: Gawn, Grundy
FWD: Hall, Hawkins, Ziebell, Langford, Dusty, Impey
Wish I had Parish over Merrett like I considered earlier in the year, but otherwise looking at a strong run home.

Wtf

Glad you’re not in any of my leagues.
That’s a great looking unit.
How’s the ranking??

Greendale

About 6000. Started the year slowly and have climbed almost every week. I’m expecting a big jump this week with 18 playing including 14 premos

Rick Grimes

I’ll field 17 this week. Be touch and go if I get full premium. I have Jiath at d6 who may have to stay. Mids are full uber. Coleman-Jones/Weightman are my f6. Priority is rucks where I have Flynn r2. Was going to trade back to Grundy if/when he’s back scoring well. But who knows, if Flynny can knock out 110s every week he might stay!

derek

Who are you bringing in this week?

Greendale

Lyons, Langford, Briggs and Bramble. Briggs won’t offer much aside from his score this week, but that’s fine with me. Langford I see big value in and the other two are fairly self explanatory.
Also Derek what’s the go for the survivor league? Was that related to the mid season draft league or is that seperate? I haven’t seen a league code.

Denham

Okay without naming everyone, post bye I will have this in terms of non-premos with 8 trades left:
DEF: Aliir D6 & Idun Bench
MID: Brayshaw (Fre) M7 & Jordon M8
FWD: Heeney, Weightman & CCJ as F4/5/6 with Waterman Bench
Is it remotely possible to get close to full premo with that level of stench in the forward line !!

Rick Grimes

If CCJ hangs around he’ll be a decent f6. But he may only get another 2-3 weeks if Lynch recovers. Lets hope he stays in regardless. Aliir can stay d6. Back Brayshaw and Heeney in. Both capable of premium output. I’d try to get Jordan and Weightman to premo and then pick off the others if possible.

Denham

Thanks Rick. Was thinking Heeney to Greene or Langford to get warm bodies on field this week – no cash needed but would need a downgrade if I went to a Dale or Merrett/Wines/Kelly/Walsh via DPP. Thoughts on that – will get me to 17 on field?

Rick Grimes

Im trading Heeney, so it’s hard to tell you to do otherwise. I’m scared he’ll ton up next week mind you. Either Greene or Langford seem an upgrade based on recent efforts.

Teague Train

Only have 5 trades left after this week

Def – Saad D6 (Madden on the bench)
Titch M8 (Bianco/Newcombe on the bench)
Flynn R2 (Reeves)
Weightman/Poulter/CCJ F5/6

Struggled with injuries this year only 5 trades left but hopefully i can survive (doubt it)

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

My thinking for this round has gone from doing just the one trade to all four allowed, which I really can’t afford regarding trades, it would be like maxing out on a credit card, which I have never done, to not giving a damn about this round and just not trading at all.

Kat

I keep changing my mind about this round as well John and not sure what to do. Could just do the one or two trades of Impey to Greene and maybe Rowe to Newcombe or
could do 4 and get in a Walsh/Mitchell type as well and have $100,00 leftover or Macrae and no cash left to put towards my 2 final upgrades in the forward line (if I get to do them which I doubt as would then only have 6 trades left)
Doing the 4 trades means I need to get rid of Jordon who may make me more cash and only leaves Bianco, Newcombe and Sharp??? which is a dodgy mid-bench but do have Laird who I can swing back in to cover one out as Jones is on the bench in D7.
Decisions decisions. Just get the upgrades done or be patient and hope some of the fallen premos in the mids don’t go up by too much over the next few weeks. Also, doing the 4 trades may give me a very slight chance to win a few leagues. I really am in 2 minds

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Hi Kat, well done on your win last week, I’m keeping both Jordon and Poulter as my M8/M9, since I’m so low on trades, I need good bench cover in case of more injuries down the track.I was going Impey to Greene, but decided to hold Impey, if I had more trades I would do it. If I do any trades it will be Green (M7) to Titch, since that’s the only way I can get him using one trade.

Kat

Thanks John Only just scraped in though. Might have dodged a bullet deciding against Macrae. Has been very disappointing tonight so far and might be able to get him in much cheaper in the future if I wish. Sure he will bounce back though

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Yes it was a close one, but you were in a winning position most of the round. I’ve never had Macrae in my side in the seven years I’ve been playing, not sure why, just prefer other players. Happy I had the VC on Bont. Won’t win any games this round due to the amount of players on field, but nice to get the C score out of the way early.

Hugh

Do only the 1, John. Post-surgery & full of opiates last weekend I went from 1 planned trade to 4 & brought in Powell-Pepper!!!

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Ended up doing three in the end Hugh with mixed results. Green to Titch, very good, F.Macrae to Briggs, happy to have the fwd/def swing with Madden and Byrnes to Newcombe for a cash grab, that I’m starting to feel was a waste of a trade.

derek

i’m looking at 4 trades.

it will leave me with only Grundy to bring back in to finish my team

but it means RGray and JCameron in this week, instead of waiting a couple more weeks for Dangerfield and Rowell’s prices to fall

i can use 4 trades and field a strong 18 this week and hopefully get a nice jump in ranks and win a few games that i really need to.

ST1974

Time to panic or perhaps just take the week off.
Rowe to Newcombe (via Brockman DPP) and Warner to Hawkins or Langford.
or
Rowe to Newcombe (via Brockman DPP), Warner to Greene and Jordon to Langford.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Rowe to Newcombe and Warner to Langford or Greene.

derek

Greene is a gun

Teague Train

Hawkins or Langford dont stand out to me and Greene can have a massive brain fade at any stage in any game

ST1974

Thanks John and Teague Train. I appreciate your advice. These are the only options I could come up with the money I have. I was leaning towards Hawkins as he has been scoring better and is more consistent. Langford appeals to me on the back of his past three games and is very cheap but not sure if he can continue this form. I don’t trust Greene for the reasons that you have outlined. Other option would be to bring in Hall.

Hugh

Gonna watch Fri & Sat games 1st but do I drop Waterman via Poulter DPP for Newcombe or do I just trade out Poulter? It makes $100 k difference immediately but Poulter is a better F7 for my flaky Forward Line. Any thoughts?

PS Harry Morrison wasn’t (as reported above) dropped: he’ll miss 2 to 3 weeks with a hamstring strain. Which increases Newcombe & Bramble’s job security.

Hugh

Is Poulter safe for a Round 15 spot?

holty01

Good luck everyone for the round

dontblushbaby

You too mate, will mark this round as a building round for the future

Russty_

Ditto Holty, go well mate 🙂

Hugh

Does anyone know how many weeks Alec Waterman (calf) is expected to be unavailable for selection for Essendon?

dontblushbaby

Was trying to find out the same thing, theres nothing on the AFL or Essendon Injury List

Hugh

Thanks for looking. They do say it’s a calf, so I guess he’ll likely miss 2-3 weeks (though whether it happened pre-Bye or not, we know not). When Dylan Shiel & Devon Smith are both back, he likely loses his spot anyway. Trade out for mine.

gareth

tossing up on a couple of options would love some input:
B.Dale & Boak
Toby Greene / Langford with & J.Kelly/ Wines/ Merret
cheers

Russty_

Greene and Wines for a nice mid pod 🙂

FearTheBeard

Lads I’m in panic mode.

I probably lose this week but MIGHT be in with a chance.

Would you take Daniels or Maynard for Moore. I feel with Moore gone maybe Maynard goes nuts for the end of the year? Probably losing this week so thinking long term for final in my comp thats all? Daniels has been going well as per the cheat sheet but just unsure 😐

Hugh

Look at Scrimshaw $470k or Andrews $484k or Stewart $532k

FearTheBeard

Got Stewart. Scrimshaw,Andrews,Daniels, Maynard???

Russty_

Yo Beardy…I like Maynard with other defenders missing but also think Andrews has been solid this year.

FearTheBeard

Maynard over Daniels?

Russty_

For me yeah mate, Daniel gets swapped around the field too much for my liking.

Hugh

Maynard will have to play a much more lockdown role in the absence of Moore. Steer clear.

One Touch Wonder

I know I’m having a rough season with injuries but I put the VC on Duncan tonight, that has to be a low point

Russty_

Rough break mate, at least he wasn’t your C I guess.

PeteB

Damn. Forgot to check my captains and have Macrae. 🤦

holty01

What a cracking game. But how has Stewart been out scored by players in this game? He was unbelievable tonight

JugHead

For pure influence on the game, I don’t know how Bont outscored Selwood.

JugHead

Sooooooooo…. the trade reversal loophole used to remove Reeves last week. Did anyone use it?
Thinking about trying it this week. You use another trade to reverse the first one, but it doesn’t actually take another trade off you trade balance….correct?

Hugh

no idea

Lazza

Are you trying to reverse Reeves from last week or someone else this week? I doubt it would work from last week because the trades have been reset.
Shake n bake knows how to do it, so does John.
I’ve not tried it, but apparently you need a trade in hand to do it, From what I understand you trade out the player and trade in the replacement as normal but your trade count doesn’t deplete.
I’m not game to try it..

JugHead

I want to reverse Oliver to Lyons, which I did this week. I’ve done a bit of research since the last post. It should work.

holty01

It will work Jug.

Lazza

I have a forced trade to make with Moore. So looking at getting Titch, but will also need to trade out a Berry or Wakeman to make up the $$ which means I can then bring in Newcombe as well. However, if I trade Jordon and Poulter instead I can get Hall as well. But I’m tossing around saving trades and keeping those two to loop as my M8. Thoughts?
Also, wondering whether Jordon is more a keeper than Heeney..

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I’d be keeping Jordon and Poulter as a loop for your M8. That’s what I’m doing.

ST1974

I am feeling numb this morning and would just like to apologise to everyone for bringing Hawkins into my team last night and jinxing everyone else who already had him or brought him in. I must admit that I thought he would still score all right with the amount of ruck work he was doing, however, getting injured late in the game probably didn’t help. I would also like to apologise to everyone for ignoring the advice I was given and for falling for the old ‘pick a key forward trick’. I will sit and watch for the rest of the round as Langford, Hall and Greene all pump out huge scores and I proceed to get annihilated in all of my league games unless Wines and J Kelly are able to produce some ridiculously high scores.

Good luck to everyone this weekend.

Derek

I went with the poor mans Hawkins and got JCameron. He wasn’t that much better

they should go ok against weaker teams

JugHead

Lots of us will be looking closely at bringing Danger back in the next week or two as his price bottoms.
Is he still a must have? Or is he now like Fyfe…..still a great scorer, but too much of an injury risk?

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

If he goes alright next round, I’ll be looking at getting him in round 16.

Maverick

whose moving on brayshaw?
I think i’m moving him onto Lyons or neale

Kat

I have to keep him and Taranto as I don’t have the luxury trades. Still have to get 2 decebt forwards if there is such a thing

Maverick

yeah i also own taranto kat.
I do have the trades which is nice.

Bobby

who is the better F6 for the remainder of the season?
Heeney or Impey.
Impey looks to be 3rd or 4th option down back and heeney is not 100% the week off may help him

Corey

Looking at upgrading Poulter and Jordon to Merrett and Walsh or Lyons just thinking maybe spending the extra 50K might be better knowing Lyons will be top 8? What do we think?
also downgrading Collier-Dawkins to Briggs via dpp

Derek

Last minute I bought in Robbie Gray.

I see he is subbed out.

how bad?

Lazza

😮😬

Russty_

Wow that it just typical of my whole season so far, brought him in this week too.
FanFooty says knee medial ligament.

Kat

Russty can you please post each week who you bring in so we can avoid them.

Russty_

I know right?…it’s like I’m friggin cursed this year, pretty soon I won’t be bringing in anyone cause I’ll be out of trades LOL

Kat

Now Jones has done his hammy. Is he one of yours as well.

Kat

Left knee strain

Kat

That’s bad luck

derek

thanks fellas. has been a rough year. thought i would throw caution to the wind and get Gray in, even though i know he can be an injury concern

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

L.Jones going down has helped me decide my trade plans for this round, was thinking of trading Byrnes out for Newcombe, but now I’ll just wait until next week and move Bianco to defence for Jones and bring Newcombe in on the bubble if he is playing. Might not do any trades this round, most have way more players on field than me, so wouldn’t make any difference if I did. Still interested in Titch, though having to trade out Green to get him makes me feel uneasy.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Traded Green to Titch.

Hugh

good move

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Only way I could afford to get Titch in. Was thinking about waiting till next week for Neale at about the same price, but Green would have dropped too much in price to do it in a single trade.

Derek

If you told me I would would have a forward line of:

Dusty, Ziebell, Toby, JCameron, RGray & Daniher

by round 14, I would have just not started this year.

kyle

which combination out of Jelly, Walsh, Greene and Langford? can choose one mid and 1 fwd

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Walsh and Greene.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

OK, maybe not Walsh.

K.Sinny

Ended up getting Greene, Kelly and Briggs so neither did too well but chose the best I guess.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

At least Greene worked out alright for you.

holty01

How we going this week community? I’ve had some positives and negatives this week. Positives have been bringing in Neale and Briggs this week. Negatives is putting the vc on Hall instead of Neale and my inability to navigate the round 14 bye. Only have 15 onfield and probably won’t waste another trade just to get a Bramble or someone else in.

TOPHAWK

Hi Holty. TH is just spluttering along. Hanging in there during this crazy season. Sitting on 1032 with Zerrett Kapitan, Ridley, Newcombe, Langford, Bramble, and Impey to come. Hoping to get around 1700 to get these byes out of the way. Then 9 trades left for the run home. Cheers. TH

holty01

9 trades will be nice. How many more to upgrade? I was going well for overall so went harder on trades then I should have especially trying to navigate the byes but after the Richmond game was moved, that was the end for me. 6 trades left and 2 upgrades to go. Only playing for leagues now so will hold onto trades until I can get my final 2 I need.

TOPHAWK

I am going to need those 9 trades too. I need two more forwards and one more midfielder to upgrade with 250K in the bank. Next week I have to pull a corrective to get rid of Duncan before I even look to upgrade the remaining three. Duncan will turn to Neale. Then I will cash in Flynn to Dusty (Via Coleman Jones DPP). I will then have 7 trades left with one more forward and midfielder to get. I might just get to full premo if injuries stay away. Its gonna be tight. Cheers. TH

Derek

I traded aggressively over the bye, 3,4 & 3 trades. Only have 7 left.

Still have to get Grundy back.

have Daniher at F6 who can become Danger, and Robbie Gray’s injury to deal with

holty01

I traded aggressively before the bye (to aggressively). Went with the assumption no games would be moved. In hindsight it was a bit silly considering we all know the risks of this in the world we live in today. This inturn has meant using 8 trades in the bye rounds just to be somewhat competitive in round 14.

Derek

I managed to get 17 on field this week, was hoping Reeves would have played.

Even with my 17, Holty looks to have me covered with his 15, thanks to Neale almost out scoring my Gray/Crips/Cameron combination

Derek

The Neale move was inspiring mate.

TOPHAWK

That was an epic move by Holt. What a play. Neale instant POD too.

JugHead

1506 with 5 to go. Hoping for 1850 – 1880. Traded out Oliver, brought in Lyons and put the C on him, which helped.

holty01

Awesome Jug. Any plans to get Oliver back in?

JugHead

Maybe. The 50k I got stepping down to Lyons will help me get Grundy and Danger.
After that, its a matter of whether Olivers price drops enough, or whether I take a punt on Neale instead.

Last edited 3 months ago by JugHead
Lazza

14 players on field, 1095 with 5 to play.. Mitchell, Impey, Newcombe, Merret and Ridley. Made 2 trades this week only to ensure I can get one of my targets next week.. 8 trades left.

Kat

Positives: bringing in Greene and Briggs a serviceable score. At last got my VC right and got Bont score as C. Neutral: choosing Wines over Walsh, Macrae and Neale. Dodged 2 bad scores but missed out on Neales. Negative Green getting reported and after last weeks debacle trading in Reeves for Flynn, Reeves not being picked again. May cost me some wins this week. Will be a disaster if Grundy is out next week. I have 14 on field this week but may be lucky and get 5 wins Some depend on how Mitchell goes today.

TRIGGA HAPPY

Putrid this week. I was expecting a low score but the ones playing sheesh. Shocker. Write off this week move on.

But the “catching” fire sale team havent added up the scores but may have scored around 2000. Stewart and lyons gr8 ins.

Shake n bake

Pretty ordinary rd but to come away from thebyes with 11 left probably not so bad

S C tragic

Did anyone else get out of wrong side of the bed at the start of this season? My one trade this week, to conserve same, but boost my forward line welcome to my world ROBBIE GREY !!!!! Bugger.

Derek

Yep. I got Gray as well. When will we learn?

JugHead

Wouldn’t say the wrong side of the bed, but it ticks me off that by the end of the season I will likely have burnt multiple trades rotating premos.
Gotta look at how to get Danger, Neale and Grundy back in after trading them out.
Trading Oliver out may also come back to bite me, but it was a calculated risk.

tbone19

Gday guys, worth using a trade today to go Impey to Langford? Have 8 trades left with 2 upgrades still to do and 200k itb

Plans for this week are Flynn and L. Jones to 102k ruc/fwd swing and Steele or Neale in then just need one fwd premo to bring in. Cheers

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I really hope you didn’t go ahead with this trade TBone.

holty01

Merrett or Titch as Captain 🤔

TOPHAWK

I am running with Zerrett. Time to toss the coin Holty!

holty01

Same. Zerrett for consistency. Titch has the bigger ceiling but been inconsistent

Russty_

Zac’s copped a tag fellas but he’s still going ok…good luck

Swans2012

Well heeney to stringer was a short term success. I’m sure it’ll be a long term fail like the rest of my season but still, I’m alllowed to bask in the glory this week, surely, aren’t I?

JugHead

Absolutely, and not necessarily a long term fail. As we saw today, he is a potential matchwinner.

TRIGGA HAPPY

Yep gloat away bud. 😉

demonsdelight

good move Swannie

PeteB

So is the love for Jai Newcombe over ?

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Very much, but he should make a good C loophole for the rest of the season.

Lazza

Clarkson has announced already that Newcombe will play this week .. R15.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Yes I saw that Lazza, only traded him in to get some cash in the bank anyway, so not to bothered, looks like I’ll have L.Jones as my C loop now.

JugHead

Not really. Rookies are inconsistent. Now the byes are gone, he is only a benchie anyway. The Hawks were really keen on him at the mid season draft, so hopefully he holds his spot and they try to get games into him.

PeteB

Actually a bit relieved in one way. If he produced another good score I’d feel like he is a must have rookie and burn up another trade which I really can’t afford. What about Luke Edwards ? – average of 79.5 points from his two games and should generate cash pretty quickly if he can keep scoring 60 plus.

David C

Shuey and Kelly to come back in next game. I can’t see how he keeps his spot.

TRIGGA HAPPY

So it got the better of me. My team was putrid this week, only had a few and most of those had a shocker but…
The fire sale team that is a different story! After adding Stewart and Lyon (awesome ins) the team scored
1958!!
After that may have to change name to “catching” fire team. 😉

demonsdelight

Teams going great Trac Where could the Fire Sale team be now? interesting. I had my own mom ent of glory beating Shake twice,not as good as him beating me twice last week but this year a win is a win as Barassi said I will take it Shake got to get to one final hopefully NDD

Shake n bake

had my finger on the trade brayshaw to Neale but last second decided not waste the trade hope hope to get into a couple of finals to. Good luck champ

demonsdelight

Duncan to Short should never got rid of him

demonsdelight

would have done it Shake on my radar

TRIGGA HAPPY

Climbed 5000 spots to sit just outside 2k.

Kat

I didn’t realise we got extra trades for Round 15. I currently can use 4 this round. Is this right

JugHead

Nope. That’ll be a glitch. 2 trades only for rd 15.

Kat

Thanks Jughead. I didn’t think it was right. Wonder what happens if someone uses the 4 trades before they fix it up ?

JugHead

Im sure the code wouldnt let them carry 4 completed trades into the rd 15 start.

Lazza

I have 4 as well

Lazza

Anyone notice that SC is currently showing 4 trades available for R15 🤔

dontblushbaby

only for 2 me Lazza

Lazza

I just checked again, still showing 4 for me .. I wonder if it has anything to do with the number of trades used in the byes.. did you use all yours? (I didn’t)

Lazza

Just for fun, I tried to use the 4 trades.. it only allowed two.. but still showed 2 used and 2 available .. weird..

Lazza

So, who for my last MID.. Neale or Lyons?
Lyons is so good and reliable..
Neale is so cheap and with a high ceiling, but will he last?, and after this week will he be tagged for the rest of the year 🤔

Hugh

After O’Connor Round 15, who may go to Zorko/Lyons, Neale faces no more noted taggers all year.

Lazza

Cheers Hugh 👍

How did Ceglar play this week? Any chance Reeves returns?

Lazza

I only saw 2 1/2 qtrs Holty, of what I saw he was towelled up by Draper..

Kat

I have my fingers crossed he does. Was my cover in case Grundy doesn’t get up this week

Hugh

Cegs was beaten by Draper but still played OK. Reeves has 11cm over all 3 GWS Ruckmen so there’s a good argument to pick him on match-up/

Rick Grimes

Danger anyone? Thought he looked ok 2nd half. With Duncan out he needs to lift.

Keenbutclueless

Toss up for me, Rick. I have 8 trades left. I have no rookies on field, but a bit of a sub-premo team. My plan was to upgrade Impey to Danger this week, but after his ton last week, I am having second thoughts. Impey is my F5. Heeney is my F6 (have had him since the start). Unfortunately it’s two trades to upgrade Heeney to Danger. So, as much as I would fancy having Danger in my side, I am weighing up how many trades is enough.

Lazza

Given his price I’m considering him to complete my FWD line.. but I’ll wait another round or so. Mind you, having Heeney and Impey at F5 & F6 could be considered being incomplete..

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Round 16, if he goes alright (100+) this week.

Lazza

Jelly is a potential out for R15 .. 🙄😵‍💫
Swollen ankle…

Derek

He was limping quite badly in last quarter

Lazza

There’s no end to this merry-go-round Derek..

A bit gob-smacked that my measly 14 man R14 squad only won 3 of 8 but was good enough to move me up 933 places .. must have been a s-load of hurt out there ..

Russty_

Yeah I was a bit surprised Laz, I scored 1361 and only dropped 20 spots lol, then again, I am ranked 25000 haha

dontblushbaby

Does anyone have any intel on Grundy , will he play this week ?

Russty_

Not much mate, just that Grundy and Adams have to prove their fitness to play at training this week.

David C

He has been cleared to play by the doctors.

Russty_

Looks like Geary won’t play again this year and with H.Clark out for awhile probably means Highmore might play out the rest of the year, the way I’ve been attracting injuries this year I can use all the cover I can get!

Great fact hunt

Hi guys what’s the scoop on jr survivors league. Do we have to enter a new code or does it just happen
