Panic Room | Round 19

Published by Dyl on

G’day community, Dyl here, stepping in for the busy Fozdaddy this week.

COVID-19 is wreaking havoc across the nation so I’m sure there’s panic setting in amongst the community. We’ve got players isolating because they’ve visited COVID hotspots, injuries galore and the ongoing rookie roulette continues. Hopefully some of this can be of some help!

Newz you can Uze

Port Adelaide will welcome back their trio of talented youngsters from the 2018 draft – Zak Butters, Connor Rozee and Xavier Duursma. Jarrod Lienert, Martin Frederick and Sam Mayes are out. Collingwood will debut untried pair Jack Ginnivan and Anton Tohill under Friday night lights, whilst popular rookie Finlay Macrae is back for his sixth game of the season. Caleb Poulter is now in the 22 after being the medical sub last week against Carlton. Callum Brown, Chris Mayne, Josh Thomas and Will Hoskin-Elliott have all been struck by injury.

Carlton co-captain Patrick Cripps is back from his one-week layoff and is replacing Harry McKay, who has just been ruled out this afternoon. Seems Ben’s mind games have got to him! In all seriousness though, he has a toe injury. Ben Cunnington, Jed Anderson and Atu Bosenavulagi (medi-sub last week) are the inclusions for North, replacing Jack Mahony, Robbie Tarrant and Charlie Lazzaro.

James Harmes comes in for Aaron vandenBerg for Melbourne. The Bulldogs have lost superstar Josh Dunkley (COVID-19 Isolation) and have dropped Hayden Crozier and Lachlan McNeil. The reinforcements are Tom Liberatore, Mitch Hannan and Josh Schache. Harmes tagged Libba to great effect earlier in the season and I suspect this will happen again given how well it worked.

For the QClash, Callum Ah Chee and Jarrod Berry are in for Jaxon Prior and Keidean Coleman for Brisbane, whilst Oleg Markov and Rory Atkins are into the 22 for Brandon Ellis and Nick Holman for the Suns.

West Coast have made four changes for their match against the Saints. Jake Waterman, Josh J. Kennedy, Xavier O’Neill and Mark Hutchings are in for Bailey J. Williams, Jack Petruccelle, Luke Edwards and Luke Shuey. St Kilda bring in Nick Coffield, Oscar Clavarino and Paul Hunter for Daniel McKenzie, Tom Highmore and Rowan Marshall. Highmore and Marshall are particularly relevant, with 36% and 6% ownership across the league.

Billy Frampton, Tom Doedee and Lachie Sholl replace David Mackay, James Rowe and Nick Murray for Adelaide. The Hawthorn reinforcements are Blake Hardwick, Chad Wingard and Jack Scrimshaw, as Damon Greaves, Emerson Jeka and Shaun Burgoyne make way.

Sydney are set to welcome back the injury-riddled Sam Reid alongside Ben Ronke as Dylan Stephens and Joel Amartey are out. Hayden Young, Lloyd Meek, Brandon Walker and Matt Taberner are the inclusions for Fremantle, who will be without Rory Lobb, Sam Switkowski, Blake Acres and Ethan Hughes.

Experienced duo Gary Rohan and Lachie Henderson are the ins for Geelong, who have omitted Quinton Narkle and managed Brad Close. The Tigers will be without the durable superstar Dustin Martin following a severe kidney injury and have also lost Kamdyn McIntosh to injury. Jack Ross and Shane Edwards are their replacements.

Essendon will be boosted by the return of Dylan Shiel and David Zaharakis, with Alec Waterman and Matt Guelfi the two who make way. GWS’ team news will be interesting to follow all weekend with doubts over Josh Kelly‘s fitness. He has been named but is ‘touch and go’ for the match. Lachie Whitfield, Shane Mumford and Lachie Ash return for the Giants, with Jeremy Finlayson, Callan Ward and Matt Flynn out. Ward being ‘managed’ screams late in for Jelly… watch this space.

When a price breaks, it don’t Breakeven

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

  • 186 – Jack Scrimshaw
  • 183 – Darcy Parish
  • 182 – Lachie Whitfield
  • 180 – Dayne Zorko
  • 178 – Jarrod Berry

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

  • -38 – Rhyan Mansell
  • -36 – Lachlan Bramble
  • -35 – Max Lynch
  • -26 – Trey Ruscoe
  • -26 – Ned Reeves

Oh Captain my Captain

Brodie Grundy

The Pies big man features a lot in captaincy columns on the SuperCoach scene and this week is no different. Grundy scored 138 last time he faced Port Adelaide and is the ideal candidate for the VC in the Friday night game. Scott Lycett has a tendency to leak points to other rucks as well, examples include Rowan Marshall (127), Jonathon Ceglar (113) in recent weeks.

Jack Steele

The MAN OF STEELE should be considered as a captaincy option this week. He scored 150 against the Eagles in Round 4 and is probably the most in-form player of the competition in the last six or so weeks. He has a seven-game average of 142+ and has not dropped below 126 since Round 10.

Marcus Bontempelli

The Bont is my Brownlow fancy at this stage of the season and he can do it all. He doesn’t rely on any one stat category for his scoring, which means his floor is relatively high (only four scores under 100 all year). Those four scores game against sides who are right down the bottom of the ladder – 2 x North, Collingwood and Gold Coast. Does Bont’s output drop off when there’s “less” for him to do? The multiple scoring avenues also means his ceiling is unreal, 76% of the time this season he has scored 107+. I expect the big matchup against Melbourne to result in a return to scoring levels of the Bont of Round 8-15, where he averaged a whopping 145.

Sam Walsh

I felt obliged to include Walshy in this segment following his 193-point effort last week. This kid is really special. Walsh’s monster score wasn’t a once off though, he’s in a rich vein of form with his last four weeks being at an average of 155. My one concern is because he has been SO GOOD, North might utilise a tag on him. He’ll probably still kill it, but just be aware a tag could be on the cards.

Jarryd Lyons

I feel like Lyons always has a point to prove when he faces the Suns, a side who controversially delisted him earlier in his career. I don’t think Lyons is as likely as some of the above players to go huge, but he has been one of the most consistent players in 2021. 138, 114, 113, 142 are his last four scores verses the Gold Coast.

Well just like many, I’m stuffed. Good luck all this round, I think plenty of us will need it

dontblushbaby

Yes, you too mate, I was hoping to do at least 2 upgrade trades this week & next but that went out the window

Derek

Why are you stuffed?

Russty_

He might score less than 2500 this week…. 😉

I was wondering that myself.

holty01

Hi mate. No more trades, didn’t quite have enough to go Grundy (maybe a blessing) or Dunkley for Martin. Ended up going DeGoey. Marshall out, Waterman, Edwards, CCJ and Newcombe not playing could mean unavailable for rest of season which means my 22nd player (if no more injuries, covid reasons) will be Reeves, Parker, Macrae (Collingwood). My season has simply been about durable players and of all people to go down last week was Martin (one of the last people I thought this would happen to). My reason for running out of trades this year has mainly been my own fault with wasting trades on Jordon, Highmore, etc. Rarely have I had to waste a trade on a injured player. This season has been tough for a lot with injuries but if those people sit down and think, who are those who have gone down? I think the majority of those have been players who tend to miss games every year. And yes it sometimes gets frustrating when I see people like Jelly running around smashing out big scores when I refuse to select him because I keep thinking he will snap in 2.

derek

i’m down to my very last trade.

still have Madden/Briggs/Fullerton/Macrae as my swinging F6 (there is no-way known i will pick the correct on field)

i do have $120k to include with my last trade if needed. Brambles is close to $350k if i needed to get my last premium

lol about last premium, when i have Crips at M8 and Daniher at F5

good luck in finals mate and the rest of the season

K.Sinny

My year is pretty stuffed so I’m just gonna go dusty to Butters and hope I get some enjoyment from watching him.

K.Sinny

Welp….

Russty_

He’ll probs be alright next week skinny…just a bit of rust

Lazza

So like last week .. Houston is on 77 at the 10 min mark of 3rd qtr.. @ 3qtr time HES on 69 and 6 team mates have scooted past him .. wtf

Lazza

Houston up to 87 .. has a H/B, a tackle and Kick inside 60 secs .. +1 🙄

Lazza

Doesn’t help when commentators call Amon (15) when Houston has the ball (5)

Russty_

Sounds like BT…he’s always stuffing people’s names up, at least he ain’t mentioning the “arching of guy’s backs”…every 30 seconds

Lazza

Grundy has become a spud.. Glad I didn’t grab him .. May as well have Reeves and use the extra $$ on a true premo .. must sting for his owners

Derek

Went out of my way to get him back 3 weeks ago

Last 2 weeks has just stopped in second half

I don’t think the smack in the head from Lycett helped much, went backwards after that

Kat

I feel like each year there are a few “must have ” players during the year that don’t perform finals times and let you down. Grundy may be one of them this year

Derek

Not a big deal I guess. 9/10 of my opponents have Grundy

Russty_

I might roll the dice-aroo on Darcy and Marshall next year Laz, Darcy’s gotta be pushing towards top 2 next year, and Marshall hasn’t really hit his straps yet.

Derek

Macrae had it 21 times for only 52.

Was looking ok for a decent score to cover Greene.

Don’t think Fullerton can do much better?

dontblushbaby

Macrae had 5 Clangers, Grundy had 11 ffs

Nifty

Hey Derek,

Is the Survivor Group still going?

Derek

JR SURVIVOR CHAMPIONS GROUP

Some people are just better at surviving than others.

Greatfacthunt is very good and finds themselves with immunity this week. 2572 was a ripping score. Well done.

We have two well loved community members who unfortunately have been eliminated this week;

Deans Stars & The Instagator both struggled this week and have paid the price. Bad luck fellas.

Starting to get to the serious end

Thanks fellas

Russty_

Bad luck Col, well played getting this far.

gator59

Injuries hae cracked me wide open now russty

Russty_

Rough year mate injury-wise, this year has beat me into submission but I’ll be back.

Bob Butter

As someone who still has Cripps (I know) how the actual F*** did he just score 75. His stats (DE, contested, marks, tackles, marks etc) are essentially the exact same as Dow except he also kicked 3 goals, yet somehow scores 16 less. It’s times like these I really wish SC has a straightforward scoring system like AF.

Derek

Didn’t watch the game. Does sound like the blues played very well

I have him as well and will be stuck with him rest of year. Almost played brambles in field instead of Cripps, but might need Brambles anyway if Jelly a late out

Bob Butter

Blues were shocking. I have bramble and Kelly and was thinking the exact same thing. SuperCoach scoring system just genuinely baffles me at times, how Dow scored than Cripps is beyond me. Can’t wait to trade him to Bont in the semi finals (assuming I don’t have more than 1 season ending injury from here on).

Lazza

Who to put the ‘C’ on .. 🤔. Macrae, Oliver or Titch .. Walsh was my VC..😬

Bob Butter

I’m going Macrae

Russty_

Bob, I used to like you a lot before I turned Vegan, now I like Nutlex 🙂

dontblushbaby

Rock, Paper, Scissors – Titch won out

dontblushbaby

Looks like I’ll take Fullartons score ,don’t think Brockman will do any better than 70

Derek

He did ok.

I picked Madden in field over Fullerton to cover Greene

Shake n bake

I’m going Titch or Danger as capt..which one 🤔

Hedski

Went Steele captain instead of taking Wines 122, not working out well last I checked.
I’m a trade monkey but struggling on who to use my last one on for Dusty.
Was thinking Dale but I might even hold off and get Marshall next week.

Shake n bake

Take a put on buddy great run home

Hedski

Not sure even I am game enough for that Shake…could work out though

Russty_

Marshall’s your man Hed

PeteB

Well done Sharp. Displaced Jordon to the bench this week and gives me a better trade option next week.

Russty_

Jordon’s last 2 scores have been like a normal rookie, maybe he’s getting tired

Kat

Got my VC and C, WInes into Steele, wrong again. Not terrible but not a big C score. Could have chosen Petracca, Oliver, Gawn or Bont so wIll see how it plays out

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Had the VC on Walsh and the C on Clarry, but moved the C to Steele due to his form the last four weeks, wrong again, not worried about it though, my season is over anyway, just treading water till the end of the season.

Kat

That sucks John. At least mine was a considered choice not a last minute change. Oliver is killing it as well

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I should have learnt by now not to change a VC or C once I have decided on a combo, it never ends well. Haven’t looked at my match ups, but I’m sure it will come back to bite me, would have been a good C POD as well.

Derek

Walsh had my VC

titch had my C, was going good until he disappeared last quarter. Was very odd he started last quarter on bench and came on about 5 mins

dontblushbaby

Same Derek, I can’t nail my VC or C lately , had it on Clarry & Jack but changed to Titch last minute , maybe first thoughts are best thoughts

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I’ve found the VC & C that I pick at the start of the week have been the ones that have gone the best, most of the times that I have changed my mind, it hasn’t ended up as a positive move.

Russty_

Are you still making any finals John?…yeah bummer about Steele, I had the C on him too.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I can only count on one finals series at the moment Russty, in the ”Won’t Back Down” league, where I am currently 4th, but I could drop down to 5th on % if I lose this round. I’m still a chance in ”Up There Cazaly”, but it will be very close and I’m looking at coming 9th by a game or % in two other leagues. I’ve only done one trade in the last 4 weeks, so just been holding on. I should have traded Dusty out this round with my last trade, I was looking at either Hall in the fwd line or Parker in the mids, couldn’t make up my mind, missed my chance for Hall and then moved Jordon on field in the mids, so Dusty will have to wait till next week. I haven’t been on my game this week, wasn’t really interested, set my team at the start of the week and then went and ruined it by changing things around. I can see myself going out in straight sets this season in whatever finals I make, I just have too many rookies on the field compared to other teams.

Russty_

Yeah I’m feeling you on that rookie situation, how did you manage to only do one trade in 4 weeks?…that’s crazy man…and I mean like crazy disciplined.
Even if you do bow out early in your finals John, at least you made one or two, that’s better than a kick in the junk with a sharp boot.
One’s enough mate…finals-wise, good luck with it, I hope you do well.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Hi Russty, not really disciplined, there was a lot I wanted to do, but with only two trades left, I just did what I had to do after R14, so no trades in R15, traded the injured Impey to Danger in R16 and my bench rookies have been covering me ever since. I just looked at my match ups and the league ladders properly and I will be missing out on the finals in Cazaly by % since I won’t be winning that one against Maverick. Thanks for the good luck comment Russty, I will need it.

Russty_

Yeah mate it’s a depressing bloody year unless you managed to avoid a shit ton of injuries. I have zero trades left and its a freakin miracle I was able to field a full team this week but I will lose all league matches haha. I liken this year the way its gone to ….praying for death lol, if you were a warrior and all seemed lost then death quick would be the answer.
Not dragging out the inevitable result.
Shit I’m depressing myself, maybe I should disappear for awhile.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Ha Ha Ha, I like that Russty, a quick death, yes, just put us out of our misery. I enjoyed my scores from R15-R17, even managed to get a win against Holty and Trigga, but then the inevitable happened and I’ve struggled to field a team the last two rounds. If I change my mind about next year and decide to go around again, I might just put my team in, won’t bring my leagues back and won’t join any as well, that way it wouldn’t be such a big deal.

Russty_

I did the same as you Kat, wish I’d whacked it on Laird!…176 wowsers

Derek

You are kicking my but in Draft Prelim Final this week. Thomas, Hall, Oliver, Daniel, Cunnington. I brought in The Cannon this week for only 19, left me a lot of catching up to do

Russty_

It ain’t over till it’s over Derek, that’s unlucky with superboot after his 127 last week to only get 19, what happened to him did he get injured?
I might even get my first win against the Juggernaut Holt in your mid season draft league this week.

Russty_

It’s looking different now Derek, Darcy mostly played fwd apparently, Mundy and Ryan dropped huge turds for me, Danger’s looking like going huge for you after Kennedy performed for you. I have to hope Parish goes large and doesn’t get tagged.

Russty_

Aaaaaaand he got tagged and is on 35 points in the last quarter LOL

Kat

Yeah that would have been a nice C choice

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Laird will be good enough to pick as a mid only next season, a good POD as well.

Lazza

Capt choice has cost me 40+ , but happy with Reeves’ 79 for $188k (only paid $124k) vs Grundy’s 85 for $615k leaves me with a huge smile .. ( Marshall back @ R2 next week). .. 😂

holty01

Me as well Lazza. Went Walsh into Steele.

Derek

Reeves looked good. Has a decent future

Lazza

Don’t ya hate it when SC players just drop out with a few rounds to go … screws the final ladder and team’s chances when percentage counts to make the 4 or 8

Russty_

I wish I could’ve experienced that disappointment, this year for me has felt like a boot stamping on a human face….forever, aka 1984 George Orwell type depressing stuff.
Last 3 or 4 years I’ve played, I was at least competitive in my Leagues, this year I’m the also ran making up numbers. Forgive me fellas and ladies if I don’t run any Leagues next year, maybe I’ll just enter some public ones where I might have a chance …lol

Derek

lol it’s even more depressing playing in Public Leagues

Lazza

Sure is .. which is why I didn’t go in any this year ..

Lazza

yeh, at least I’ll be in 2 final series this year Russty, one a money league and I should get through another week in Derek’s Survivor League .. can’t believe the number of injuries this year – be interesting to see everyone’s tally of injury trades.. which in most cases thwarted any chance to generate cash.

Russty_

Good luck with them Laz and especially in the Survivor league, great stuff still being there, injury-wise…think it’s used 2/3 of my trades, 20-21…ridiculous.

Kat

Just remember Russty that when you have a bad year it makes you appreciate the good years all the more

holty01

I love that Kat.

Russty_

Cheers Kat, wise and kind words 🙂

holty01

It is bad. Especially when it’s people entering leagues in this community. The public leagues are far worse as Derek said. Last year I had a bad season, I lost complete interest in Football with the Covid stuff happening but was never giving up on the SC as it lets down the 17 other players in that league.

Maverick

G’day Shake and bake. it’s an absolute nail biter in the JR mega league I’m 4 pts up and we only have JKelly V TStewart.
This will be close I hope Kelly isn’t a late out for me. Good luck mate

Shake n bake

Martin has to go!

Maverick

Heeney doing great things for you!

Shake n bake

Yeah l might get 130 odd after scaling. Only got him in this week as l tried to see which fwd would hopefully go alright this week. Will only do sideways trades from here on unless inj or suspensions. Good luck Mav.

Pman

Danger, Lloyd or Merrett as Captain today? Probably leaning towards Danger but can be swayed…any thoughts?

holty01

Merrett probably for consistency

Lazza

Danger hasn’t been much of a threat against the Tigers recently Pieman.. and has only had 2 tons this year, however those were in the last 3 games… so maybe he’s warming up.. Guthrie is now playing more in the middle after a couple of quiet weeks following his injury. Risk/reward that one, but he tends to go big once he’s passed that 100 mark. Danger for me is a VC option only these days.
FWIW – I’d probably go Merrett .. but I’m risk adverse. Anyways, good luck whomever you choose.

Pman

Cheers Fella’s appreciate the feedback and they are good arguments for Merrett who I agree is far more consistent.

Lazza

I’m never giving advice again .. 166 😬 .. geez I hope Merrett goes big for you Pieman..

Lazza

Just saw Merrett’s 3/4qtr time score .. looked ok at qtr time .. I’m now looking for a rock to crawl under…

Pman

So am I…I cost myself 200 points by not sticking with Danger and would’ve won the cash for highest H & A score in 3 of my cash leagues. Instead of a decent 2431 I could’ve had a spectacular 2631! My own fault for not backing my gut instinct!

Lazza

It’s not gonna make you feel much better Pieman, but given you had both Merrett & Danger .. you ‘only’ missed out on 94 pts .. Danger 330 + Merrett 71= 401. vs Danger 165 + Merrett 142 = 307. .

I had 11 players score higher than my Capt.. bloody annoyed with myself too.

holty01

I’m wondering if you simply put the C on Macrae every game this year, who would be better off? I should do the maths for myself because the amount of time I said ‘why didn’t I captain Macrae’ is plenty.

Lazza

Yeh I hear Holty, I was happy with Bont most of the time, but toggling between Macrae and Bont drove me nuts .. when I strayed it has generally cost me dearly ..

ST1974

I was thinking the same Holty01 after deciding not to copy my opponent and put the C on Walsh instead of Mcrae and suffering the consequences of my poor decision. However, in my defence, each time I put the C on MacRae this season he always ended up scoring 120 or less. I agree that he and The Bont should be the first considered for the VC/C each week.

ST1974

After putting the C on Walsh and getting my choice of captain horribly wrong for the second straight week (actually I can’t remember the last time I got it right) and consigning myself to any disastrous week in terms of league matches, do I still proceed with trading Dusty to Bolton this week even though most of my opponents have him just to get him in before his price goes back up again or do I leave it and get him or perhaps Marshall next week and save a trade for finals. I currently have five trades left.
Any thoughts or advice much appreciated – as always.

Pman

I’d hold fire for a week and take Marshall who has a much higher ceiling as far as scoring is concerned compared to that of Bolton. That’s my strategy anyway.

ST1974

Thanks Pman. Is Marshall guaranteed to come back in next week in relation to the Covid protocols or will he have to miss another week like Toby Greene.

Pman

Not a 100% sure but think he is good to go for next week and was only missing the one.

holty01

How we going this week community? Neale, Walsh, DeGoey, Zorko a bit disappointing for me this week.

Pman

On track for 2400 – 2500ish but have been let down on plenty of Sunday’s before!

Shake n bake

I got in heeney for dusty leaving myself 6 trades. Not to fussed for this week. Cant wait for next week. Hopefully bramble for Bont

Kat

Going OK and hopefully should win the matches I needed to stay in finals. It has meant however, that to win I had to use 2 trades and so prob not going to get to trade Madden out of F6 as will have to save trades for injuries. Would love to have kept Greene and save one trade but not to be. Not much point saving trades but not making finals. Unfortunately did not have a bench player in the forward line to cover for him

dontblushbaby

Was going ok until Fyfe went down , he looked like he was in for a big one , Heeney making up for it though atm, maybe 2400 ?

JugHead

Looking at just over 2400. Normally I’d be wrapt with that, but this week I have a feeling I’ll need it just to hold my rank. Seeing quite a few 2450-2500+ projections.

john

Looking at around 2450 with a donut, was hoping CCJ might be a late in but not to be, Walsh failed as VC Steele marginally better as C, should hold rank this week. Dodged a bullet of sorts, was going to trade H.Jones to buddy today to consolidate my top4 position in cash league but decided against it with news Pendles is done for the season-next week Pendles/Dusty to Dunkley/Marshall just, if Pendles loses more than 40k I might have to reacess.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Looking at around a 2,200 score and only 2/10 league wins.Will make the finals in one league, currently 4th and looking at just missing out on finals in 3 leagues coming 9th on %, including ”Up There Cazaly” and ”The Rat Pack” leagues.

Russty_

I noticed you finished ninth in a few John,bad luck there bud…… hey when you’re lamenting what could have been, think of this…It was touch and go for me this year to finish in any top 16’s LOL…I ended up finishing 14th and 16th in 2 leagues, for a shot at the minor premiership, the other 8 leagues I finished 17th or 18th….lol, how bad is that?
So…the fact that you made it to one top 8 is good mate, and best of luck to you in that.
I hope something changes next year with trading or something when someone has a ton of injuries….it’s season ruining and impossible to recover from.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Hi Russty, I knew you weren’t going that well, but when you put it like that, it sure puts your season into perspective. You did really well just continuing to fight it out.I can understand why you just wanted the season to end, that’s how I’ve felt the last few weeks mainly, but even before that really, when we were getting all those injuries, week after week, it just put a damper on the whole season. I know Holty said we picked the wrong players, but I actually tried to stay away from injury prone players and ones with a limited pre-season and still got hit, you still have to field 22 players. Yes making one finals series is better than none and having the double chance helps as well, I’ll need it since I played the no1 team this round and lost. Not sure what I will do next season, I still feel they need something in place to account for injuries like we had this year. I might come back, but with no leagues, just my team. Good luck in the minor premierships Russty, if you get a good run anything can happen, I won one of my premierships from 8th spot in 2017.

Hedski

1520 odd with 8 to play and going to cop a donut for Dusty, had Treacey to cover him and didn’t realise he was a late out.
Could have traded him to I.Smith, Bolton or god forbid Stringer but decided to just munch the jam filled bastard and get Marshall next week, will probably only win one league this week now but it’s my cash league so all good, should make finals in 5 or 6 of 8 leagues so not to fussed.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Does anyone know what happens when two teams end up on the same points and % on the league ladder, how do they separate them. I’m looking at this in two of my leagues at the moment, will be the difference between 8th and 9th.

Pman

My guess is that they would separate by For and Against Points, whoever has the Most Points FOR could get the nod in that scenario.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Thanks for that Pman, it’s moving around a bit, we might end up 8th, 9th or 10th on % in one and in the other I’m about 50pts behind on overall points, so will end up 9th there.

Kat

Other scenario is maybe who won the head to head match ???

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Hi Kat, I think Pman is correct, I kind of remember this coming up a few season ago and I think they went on who was the highest ranked team, or something along those lines.

Derek

Did you get into many finals John?

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Hi Derek, just the one where I came 4th, so at least I get the double chance. Missed out on 3 finals by % and 1 by a game, but I probably wouldn’t have gone far if I’d made it anyway.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Was looking at Dusty to L.Parker next week, but will be a few $ short, so I might go Dusty to Rich, move Laird into the mids.

Kat

Need Whitfield to score 45+ to win a crucial head to head. Fingers crossed

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I think you are safe Kat.

Derek

I’ll be happy with Bolton getting 45

Shake n bake

I went heeney thought you might have went that way too great run home.

Russty_

That Heeney mark today was something special.

demonsdelight

Good to see Russty dethrone the king Holty It propels me into the 4 level with holty and Gator. Must thank Gator for Mccluggage enjoy Bailey mate NDD

gator59

You’re welcome mate

demonsdelight

bet we play each other what’s the draw?

gator59

Have no idea mate, Bailey will be the difference lol

gator59

Round 21 is the big dance with Dunkley to get me over the line

demonsdelight

might put luggage in to bring it home

gator59

You may need him mate

Just a heads up Gat I am offering you a once in a lifetime trade reluctantly.. That champion Saint MEMBREY will only cost you Dunkley

gator59

A sleepless week coming up wondering what to do
You’re gunna throw your best players away

Russty_

You play Derek Neil and Col plays Shaker, Holty has a tough one too up against Snake Blisken.

Russty_

Happy to help mate haha, Derek wiped the floor with me in Jungle land league, I was predicted to beat him by 200 and he beat me by 200+ LOL, typical of my year.

demonsdelight

That kind of year mate i really don’t think Derek is a monty .My team in the mid season is not bad either and i recruited luggage Never say never

Russty_

Yeah I get a second chance finishing top of the ladder, just gotta get up over Dion’s tight golden trunks and have another go at Derek…I had some serious underperformers this week, hope next week is better.

Derek

In paper I wasn’t any chance, and after your Kanga boys got you off to a good start and I had The Cannon score 19 and didn’t even want to look at the scores.

But today, My old mates JPK and Dangerfield got me home, while your C couldn’t even manage 50.

Look forward to a RE-match

Russty_

Yeah mate, I hope to get there but Dion could whup my ass just like you did, I always thought yours was the team to beat if you had all your guys fit and on the park. I didn’t expect to do so well because at the start of the season I delisted 10 guys, there was confusion about what we were doing this season…so I lost some pretty good players…had to try and build up a solid team again.

The golden rule for SC finals is dont rely on rookies but there are some real yo yos in the lite premium category this year and Taranto is one of them. 

Team

Laird Daniel Stewart Lloyd Lever Saad (Highmore Connoly)
MaCrae Danger Oliver Merret J Kelly Pendles Taranto Bramble (Bianco F MaCrae Newchurch)
Gawn Grundy (Reeves)
Ziebell DeGoey Heeney Marschall Bolton Sidey (Waterman Henry)

6 trades left and 243 k ITB, was timing full premium until SC league finals in case of injuries but of course Pendles, Martin etc. Bramble has a low BE and more money to make and great backup as M9. Guthrie was my trade target last week but of course Pendles injury changed that as I then needed 4 premos to be full premo.

A
Taranto and Pendles out for Bont and Guthrie (My league opponent in 2 v 3 match C Bont last week Guthrie low BE. This would mean hopefully looping MaCrae and Bramble with Newchurch on the field depending on the fixture then get another mid premo later)
B
Pendles and Bramble out for T Kelly and Bont

Comment: Have I missed another obvious option

Any help greatly appreciated!

I’d swap pendle & Merrett for 2 genuine premos.
Bont is a must have and so is steele (not spudbottom I mean Jack) Steer clear of Parish he craps the bed when given a tag even when the tagger is a novice like ash, Guthrie has been a bit of a yoyo as well

derek

you can only tell who the real premiums are at the end of the year. looking at a week by week basis will do you head in.

Merrett season average 111.7 = Gun
Taranto = 96.8 = Not a Gun

The Ranger

Option A for mine.

Bad news for those of us hoping to see Lachie Jones come back into the Port team soon. New Injury and surgery to his “good” ankle.

TRIGGA HAPPY

Well my goal at the start of the year was to make at least 5 league finals as there are some mighty impressive players and SC guns in these leagues most from jocks flock.
So tick that one off somehow managed to make 10.🙊
Now onto the next goal win a GF
That one is gonna be super TOUGH.
Still I must be on the right TRAC. 👍

Shake n bake

I started scratchy all because l couldn’t get my bench right. I’ve moved up to just over 3000 now and made 10 finals with 6 top 4. I have 6 trades left and will probably look to make 2 sideways trades this week with Bont on my radar. How many trades do you have and am l playing you at all?

demonsdelight

After a poor year made only one and super lucky there Eighth in my own league A GRADERS and guess who I play TRIGG good luck mate

The Ranger

Same here Neil, only made one this year. Still not full premo but might just make it for Rd23!
