Panic Room | Round 9

Published by Fozdaddy on

My god, it’s happening. Everyone stay calm. STAY F**KING CALM! EVERYONE JUST CALM THE F**K DOWN!

Now that I’ve got my Office quote in for the day, let’s get into the panic together. No time to waste.

Newz you can Uze

Luke Cleary will make his debut for the Bulldogs on Friday night. He’s a tallish defender, so don’t expect fireworks in his debut. Marcus Bontempelli will return after being rested, while Jordan Sweet will replace Stefan Martin, meaning Tim English owners will have to wait another week. Jack Ginnivan is out with illness in the clash, with Caleb Poulter replacing him.

Bigoa Nyuon will make his debut for the Tigers in the clash with the Hawks. Fellow rookie-priced defender Josh Gibcus is out with Covid, but Nick Vlastuin has returned to the lineup. Sam Butler will also debut in this clash, and is available as a midfielder and a forward. Tom Mitchell has been managed after an illness-affected 40 last week, while Josh Ward was dropped and Connor MacDonald was managed.

Number one pick Jason Horne-Francis has been given a week off after he put off contract talks. Coincidence? Maybe. Tom Powell replaces him, while Hugh Greenwood has Covid. 

Jack Billings comes in for his first game of the season, with the Saints set to face Geelong at Marvel Stadium. Marcus Windhager and Nasiah Wanganeen-Milera won’t make any money this week after missing selection. Cooper Stephens, who debuted last week, will miss, but Mitch Knevitt will play his second game. Rhys Stanley has returned for Geelong, which may affect Mark Blicavs (HINT: EXCLUSIVE: It will, per Geelong footy reporter me. Dangerfield said he expected Blicavs to fill in gaps where required, and is working on a cloning machine to pump out a few more Blicavses). Speaking of Danger, he doesn’t expect to be managed for the remainder of the season.

Swans ruck Tom Hickey will return against Essendon, while the Bombers will regain Jordan Ridley and Jake Kelly to play in their backline. Hopefully Ridley can score some big points, please. Kaine Baldwin will miss in the only other SuperCoach relevant news out of this game. 

Eric Hipwood will make his return for Brisbane this week. No Daniher, no McStay. Could he be a smoky pick? Definitely not, don’t pick him. Adelaide has swung the axe, with six players to miss. Reilly O’Brien will be replaced by Kieran Strachan, but whether that’s a long-term option I guess we’ll find out.

Charlie Constable and Joel Jeffrey have been brought into the Suns squad. Both are options at a cheap price if they can score okay and hold their spots, if they actually get a game (extended squads). Alex Davies will miss. Nathan O’Driscoll needs to get chopped after news surfaced that the rookie option would miss six weeks.

No changes for the Giants yet, but George Hewett looks like he may return for the Blues, while Jesse Motlop will definitely debut. Paddy Dow is in the extended squad.

Alex Witherden, Greg Clark and Hugh Dixon have been named in the squad to face Melbourne, while the Dees haven’t made a change. 

When a heartbreak it don’t Break Even

What am I sposed to do, when the best part of me is owning you?

-92 Maurice Rioli

-82 Jack Carroll

-72 Luke Strnadica

-64 Tom Lynch

-63 Cooper Hamilton

-58 Greg Clark

-47 Robbie McComb

-46 Aidan Beg

What am I sposed to say, when I’m losing money when I have you stay?

201 Callum Mills

175 Jack Steele

166 Matt Flynn

147 Jack Sinclair

146 Steven May

143 Zach Merrett

141 Zac Bailey

139 Tom Hickey

Oh Captain my Captain

Jack Macrae is fresh off a 144 and Collingwood. His last three (118, 103, 110) haven’t been great, but he’s a gun. Jayden Short has moved into the midfield, where the Hawks are lacking, but even if he plays off half back he could go big. His last three against Hawks (120, 117, 126) are all as a defender. Expect a decent score here. Luke Parker dropped a 151 last time against Essendon, with 111 and 109 the other two scores from his past three. Max Gawn could’ve dropped three sub 20 scores against West Coast in his past three and I’d still captain him against Strnadica and Dixon. Clayton Oliver and Christian Petracca are also great options against a midfield whose best player is a rookie. Pat Cripps also. Don’t need anything else about him.

Hey guys looking at bringing in laord and cameron..shark move?

Derek

I assume you mean Laird (not Ollie Lord from PTA)

I’m looking at Laird after his bye to be my M8. Crows have a great run home, especially during SC finals

Bris, Saints and Cats over next 3 are tough, so hoping he might even drop a few $.

Has been ultra consistent and big POD

I assume you are talking about Darcy Cameron (not Cameron Ellis-Yolmen, who retired because he didn’t want the covid jab) he is a very good pick depending on who does he replace in your forward line? Hard to replace Brodie, Martin or Cogs, but if he is getting rookie off field, great option and should get DPP

Russty_

Hi Derek, I’m assuming you’re the same Derek as from Derek and Clive fame, I used to greatly enjoy listening to the tapes you and Dudley Moore used to make when you were extremely drunk 🙂

Derek

More like Derek & the dominoes

Russty_

This bloke walked up to me……

Peter

Thanks Derek..yeah Cameron is replacing my rotating f6..i never got on the Brodie train..🤦‍♂️..Probably paying abit much for Laird but want to keep m8 open for now..probs Bont down the track

Lazza

Pendlebury a late out tonight

Russty_

Wonderful, time to panic! LOL

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Very happy that I survived another week in Derek’s Survivor Div1, I could be in trouble this round, being ranked 12th out of the 14 that have survived so far. There are 4 left that scored lower than me last week, so it could be a close call.

Lazza

Bit confusing too.. the picture says R8

ST1974

Which 2 (or 3) should I trade out of O’Driscoll, Hough, Gollant and Bowery. Only have $16k in the bank. NOD is on my Def bench and I can’t swing him into the midfield. I could bring in Rioli jnr for Gollant and Carroll or Clark for Hough ( I already have Hamilton) but it doesn’t leave me much cash to upgrade Bowey to anyone decent except Lloyd.

Thoughts?

Russty_

O’driscoll out for 6 weeks, and a non playing rookie

ST1974

Thanks Russty. I am keen to trade O’Driscoll out but there doesn’t seem to be any defensive rookies on the bubble and I don’t have enough cash to upgrade him to a premium defender or even a fallen premium defender.

Russty_

Maybe O’driscoll and Bowey then?…can you swing Dekoning or McCartin back if you bring in Rioli etc?

ST1974

No. I got rid of McCartin a few weeks back so I can’t do a swing with Dekoning. I am tossing up between Gollant to Caroll or Clark via Hamilton DPP and Bowey to Lloyd/ A Brayshaw or Gollant to Rioli jnr and Hough to Carroll. Then I could look at O’Driscoll and Bowey next week.

demonsdelight

Cleary from the dogs looks an absolute walk up player Complete package In my team this week plus he has a good bye

demonsdelight

Nothing wrong with that ST Lloyd will be in the best defenders without doubt and he has that great bye pick him NDD

Dontblushbabbie

Does anyone have any intel on how long O’Driscol will be out for ? The only comment on Freos Web on why he is out is – Foot , Thanks

Russty_

6 weeks mate, hot spot in his foot

Deafness (DM)

Start Carroll or Rioli this week? Cheers

holty01

I chose Rioli. Hopefully you didn’t do the same.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I have both on the bench, brought them in just for the cash generation, though Rioli might not be making as much as I hoped.

Nifty

Hey guys, Macdonald named as sub for Hawks if anyone using him as a loop..

holty01

Gee, putting Rioli onfield over Carroll could come back to haunt me.

Russty_

I feel for you mate, I’ve got the other Rioli onfield and that’s painful enough!
Thought Maurice was a bit better than this

demonsdelight

Yep feel for you Holty I had Maurice in an early team after seeing him at Darwin A magic player who will learn by that but no way is he in front of Carroll Guess it’s a rookie mistake Holty hope it doesn’t affect you too much mate

holty01

I haven’t been able to watch much footy this year so honestly hadn’t seen him play. Did see him play today though and wondered how he had scored so well in the previous 2 matches. I simply went off averages and also thought with Hewitt back that Carroll may have less time around the middle. Looking at my opponents this week and Noone has him onfield or simply didn’t trade him in. They obviously saw something I didn’t and good on them.

TRIGGA HAPPY

Sound logic mate.
Only reason he was on my bench as he played early and I could loop.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

That sad feeling you get when you put off upgrading and the player you were going to get in, is sitting on 94 at half time.

Russty_

Who was that John? I’m sad I brought Rioli in

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Sicily. Just wish I’d started with him like I was going to. Rioli can just sit on the fwd bench until he’s maxed out. Will probably trade him out at his bye.

TRIGGA HAPPY

That’s one I did get right. Sic and Hewett in starting team in def.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Well done Trigga, I didn’t start either, had both in my pre-season teams, but both went in the week before round one, when I restructured my team.

Od

Hey guys looking at trading in either Laird or Parish this week but struggling to make the call on which one. Any advice?

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I like Parish, looking at him, Brayshaw, Petracca as my upgrades in the midfield.

Russty_

Steele down in the rooms with a shoulder injury, hope it’s not too bad

TRIGGA HAPPY

That’s two 70’s in two weeks. front and centre on my radar. Will be ripe for the picking after his bye. 👌

Lazza

Neil (NDD) posed a question recently .. the answer is “seems not” … Stewart killing it ..

demonsdelight

I remember that Laz It was to one of the great coaches on here who didn’t have Stewart in the top 6 defenders where as I rate him no.1 I was worried about his foot injury early but I seem him train one night and he was spot on NDD

Russty_

Where  is your bestie Neil, haven’t seen him for awhile?

demonsdelight

Spoke to him earlier pretty much flat out with the house you gotta remember he isn’t as quick as he was 60 years ago Slowed right down going backwards but not his yours and Kat’s mighty Saints wow great effort that and true contenders

Russty_

Thanks mate wish I’d tipped em but changed my mind at the last minute and it was too late. Was actually talking about your bestie  schittsangers 😉

Kat

Was a great win. Just got to become more consistent now. However nice to be winning more games than losing. We Saints fans are suckers for punishment

ST1974

Should I trade Hough to Carroll or Clark and Bowey to A Brayshaw or Lloyd or should I leave it for next week.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Hough to Carroll and yes time for Bowey to go.

ST1974

Thanks John. Is it worth using a trade boost to trade Bowey. Leaves me 20 trades.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Yes, but it depends how many boosts you have left. I’d save one for the bye rounds.

Pman

JUst logged and saw that Maurice Rioli (who I traded in this week and started) scored a Poxy 7 points! WTF??? Did he get injured, play as the medical sub or just had a stinker? Also I had the VC on Macrae last night and aren’t happy with his 117 so was wondering who is a better choice as Captain out of Neale and Gawn? Any feedback appreciated…

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Rioli played out the game, I thought he must have been injured when his score was going backwards in the second half, but no, just a terrible game from him. I’ll be trading him out come round 12. I’m taking the 117 from Macrae, so can’t really advise on Neale or Max. Just think about what happend to Steele tonight and then make the decision.

Tophawk

Same here John. Rioli will be long gone before round 12. I am still preparing my team for that crucial round 12 bye. That for my team this is the most dangerous round. Currently I have 16 on field so two more needed to field 18. I have it in hand, but now with Steele with a potential shoulder injury it might help the cause if he misses 2-3 weeks. He does not play round 12 so he could be replaced with Oliver, Mills, Miller who I dont have and all play round 12. It is delicately poised, but with a bit of luck will get through the dreaded 3 weeks. Cheers, TH

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

It’s an interesting one, about what we do with Steele if he’s out for more than two weeks. I was going to hold, but I’m tempted to just trade him to Brayshaw or Touk next round, then get him back in after his bye.

Tophawk

If you did not C Neale last night like I did, (Sigh….) just remember that Gawn is still sore and will probably spend a fair chunk of time up forward today. Jackson may well do the bulk of the ruck work. Gawn might not go large as a result. I take it you dont have Oliver, but do you have Crippa, Miller, or Brayshaw? One of these three guys could be a great C option too. Just my two bobs worth. Good luck today. TH

Russty_

Nick Martin reminding us all this half, maybe this week that he is actually a rookie.

Russty_

Actually 60 odd  is perfectly  serviceable for any rookie, 20 in the first half was a bit low for him.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Fairly happy with my on field rookies, McCartin, De Koning, Daicos, Hobbs, all in the 68-75 range, after the way Martin has been playing, I’ll forgive him for the sub 60 (59) score.

Russty_

Got Draper in my Draft team when Grundy went down, he  scored 100 last week, he’s currently on 12 points at the start of the 4th quarter lol, nice win Derek. Gotta  say draft is a bit of a bore this year, can’t get a decent team together, had a great team last year but that all ended coz one guy didn’t show up, maybe keeper leagues aren’t  such a good idea?, maybe better to start from scratch each year?

Tophawk

Hi Russty. I agree 100% with you. Thats the whole point of the draft concept! Each year you must start from scratch. It is about a coaches’ ability to know as many players as possible. Which ones have injuries, which ones had a good preseason, which ones are the break out candidates, and which ones you target first. Draft night is a couple of hours of great fun and will highlight those coaches who secure a great starting team. I thought Derek had the best starting line up this year. He might win it, but its along season, with injuries and free agent trading, as well as trade offers made by one coach to another coach throughout the season. So other coaches can definitely play themselves back into it. So, next year, lets start again from scratch! Cheers,

Derek

I’ll run another mid-season draft after the byes. It’s good little game and drafting is much easier half way through the season.

Derek

My team from last year would have done the 3peat

This year I drafted well, Oliver was my first picked.

Managed to get Mills, Walsh & Docherty very late because of their lack of preseason. Traded good, getting Darcy cheap and Parker & Libba before they got DPP.

Getting Vlautin and recently Bowes off waiver was a bit lucky

TRIGGA HAPPY

Is there a better tackler in the game than Millsy?
Libba maybe. Boy he tackles hard and u just get pinged.
Kid doesn’t have a to weakness and just gonna get better.
He is just good at footy.

Russty_

Nice pick mate, he’s a gun and a half.

Derek

I should have regrets not having him, was super hot all preseason but his injury concern me. I just love watching him play, watched him as a junior when my sons were in the swans academy and for years said he had to play in the midfield, now he is there has gone to superstar

holty01

How we all doing? My round so far can be summed up like this. “I put Rioli onfield over Carroll”.

TRIGGA HAPPY

Yeah I played it safe and took de koninhs score over McCartin
Cost me 6 pts! 😬

holty01

Like it

Tophawk

Gday Holty! I traded Rioli in yesterday and was rewarded with monster 7SC. The good news is that I left him on the bench. The bad news is that after that effort, he will probably get dropped and will become an instant wasted trade. Other than that, had the C on Neale who produced a modest 230SC. By the way, I envy all those coaches who own Oliver. He must be the no brainer C this week against the West Coast Canaries. The outstanding performers in the Tophawks team this week so far are Bazlenka 144SC and Sicily 141SC. Special mentions to Butters who somewhat turned things around with 104 SC and my new recruit Jordan Dawson with his debut 107SC. On track to end up somewhere in the low 2400’s. Good luck today Holt and all other coaches in this awesome SC community. Cheers, TH

JugHead

Tracking for just over 2300 here. Just not working out for me this year.
Can’t get all the rookies off the field and can’t quite get the captaincy right. I’m doing a fair bit of homework on the byes though and hope to jump up the ranks a bit then.

Kat

Got a lot of close games this weekend including against you Holty with a few points in it in quite a few leagues. Predicted around the 2300 mark. Lot will depend of my C choice. I had Rioli on bench though and have Hamilton on field. Went with my heart as he played juniors at my local footy club

Derek

Heading for around 2300. Decided to go Carroll and Hamilton instead of Rioli, Carroll in field instead of taking McComb’s score.

Brought in Petracca this week, now I have a C choice between Gawn, Oliver and Peteaccca. Obvious choice is Gawn up against no-one, but his injury will mean Jacko does most of the rucking today. Most will go Oliver, so thinking put the C on the new recruit

Good to see decent scores from 2 of my amigos Ridley & Daniel, Whitfield to come.

Hayes at R3, Carroll at M8 and Daicos at D6 are my next upgrades.

Butters survives another week just, but might still look at Libba next week

Went to hawks game yesterday, Sicily was amazing to watch.

Derek

Sunday has been aweful. Will struggle to get 2200

Russty_

shocker of a week mate, Gawn should’ve probably been rested, same here will be lucky to get 2200

Derek

I was lucky to get past 2100 in the end. Gawn and C on Oliver. Lost 7 matches by less than 50 this week, Sunday was a disaster

Russty_

Onward and upward from here, so many spud performances this week. Carroll didn’t turn out to much better than Rioli

TRIGGA HAPPY

Kryptonite had floored the man of steel.
Out for 6-8 weeks with bung shoulder. 🙉

Derek

Great effort to keep playing

gator59

Bummer there goes my 25 bucks on having him taking charlie home

demonsdelight

put it on Clarry

holty01

Well my biggest regrets this year was not necessarily not starting Brodie and Sicily, but my refusal not bringing them in after round 2

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Brodie was always in my side, Sicily in and out. Didn’t start Sicily or Hewett and my first correctional trade in the backline was Whitfield to Hewett. Was very tempted to get Sicily in when Hewett was injured, but decided to hold. Nearly every week since round 4 I’ve thought I need to get Sicily, but something else has always come up.

Derek

Didn’t enjoy that game. Had Whitfield, Cogs, Carroll & Cripps

hopefully the Dees can get a few points to make it an ok Sunday

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Looks like Cogs has hit a brick wall, was hoping he could be a F6 at seasons end. Might have to rethink that, only I have no idea who I would get in for him.

Derek

Libba is my next forward. Ultra consistent 103-105 scorer

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

A good POD as well. I might go with Dusty, since I already have Dunkley in the fwd line.

Russty_

That game made mincemeat out of your score today, bad luck Derek. Maybe time to trade Whitty?

The Ranger

Got the trifecta this week.
Brought in Rioli.
Put the C on Cripps.
Tried to loop Butters via H.Dixon who it turns out, was a late in.
You’ve got to laugh…

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I think most of us brought in Rioli Ranger, the main thing was not to have him on field. Having Dixon was always a risk being an emergency. The one I don’t get is Cripps as C when you had Macrae as your VC, 117 wasn’t that bad a score.

The Ranger

My cut off is 120. It works more often than not.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Mine was as well, until I didn’t take the 119 from Oliver in round 7. Moved it down to 115 after that.

demonsdelight

whats that about luck?

The Ranger

The Dixon move was prob tempting fate a bit too much but when you’re having a crap year you sometimes take more risks.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I think people need to start getting real about their VC scores, anything over 115 is a good score, sure you might get on a C that has a big game, but that doen’t happen all that often and you are more likely to just get a score around the same as your VC or worse.

Russty_

Fair call John, I tried for more than Macca’s 117 and lost 2 points with Neale, no harm done but it was a risk.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

It worked out all right for you Russty, just under Macrae’s score, but even after that, you have to ask yourself if it was woth the risk. Some would have had it on Oliver (99) Cripps (83). If you went Touk (130), Petracca (136) you went alright, but for the sake of 13-19 points, I just don’t think the risk v reward is worth it.

Russty_

It isn’t really, it’s just tempting fate, should’ve gone my new player Laird…or just taken Macca

Kat

Think you’re right John. My cut off is 120 but I’ve been terrible at picking my C this year and it’s often lost me games. Didn’t take Macrae VC and had C on Oliver so failed again this week. Think I may take your advice

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I moved my cut off from 120 to 115 after not taking the 119 from Oliver in round 7 and having my Macrae C score 89. Learnt my lesson, 5 points might not seem a lot, but that 115-120 range is a bit of a grey area, so might as well be at the lower end to take out the guess work.

Lazza

You were all warned … I posted my VC and C….

Russty_

Make sure you keep us posted, oh Lazza, ‘The Prophet of Doom, 😉

TRIGGA HAPPY

Did anyone get the name of that semi trailer that just run a red light and smashed into us all head on??
With s couple of exceptions what a shocking Sunday for the SC premos. 🙈

Russty_

Well done to you mate, over 2300 considering your Cap let you down a bit.

TRIGGA HAPPY

Thanks mate
Sic, Millsy, Bbqs, leyton v good
Crippa, gawn, Brayshaw, cogs not so much

Always happens though can’t all perform or score well so take the good with the bad and hope the bad bounce back next week. 😉

Russty_

speaking of bad, what to do with the inspirational Giants captain?…he seems to have gotten very bad very fast

Last edited 2 months ago by Russty_
TRIGGA HAPPY

Was gonna become Steele in a couple of weeks but that is out the window now…

Russty_

I’m thinking maybe Concraplio to Clark via Martin, doesn’t improve my scoring situation a lot but it does make me some nice moolah.

Last edited 2 months ago by Russty_
Tophawk

Tell me about it! It was road train carnage today. I think it was Coniglio driving…..You did very well getting to a 2300+ score. I did not get there in the end. Time to lick the wounds and go again next week.

Russty_

Yeah you bloody failure! LOL, 2299 is close enough mate, well done TH

Derek

Only shining light was I brought Petracca in today. Pity didn’t put C on him.

TRIGGA HAPPY

Nice pick
U are now on the right TRAC. 😉

holty01

2126 for me and lost all my league games. Too many issues this week to mention. I ended up going Clarry instead of taking Neale in the hope i’d stay alive in Derek’s survivor series but that might have cost me. Equal 3rd last so unsure how Derek works that out as 3 are eliminated in our group.

Derek

if its a tie, the team with the highest overall rank will survive. You make it again.

holty01

🥳

Russty_

Lucky Holty well done mate, bad luck to Neil in Div 5 this week, well played bud.

Derek

I saw Shake just edged past Neil.

holty01

Very lucky I must say

Derek

Whitfield, Cogs & Steele are road-kill this week.

demonsdelight

The Saints are a much improved side this year but could be tested with their depth replacing Steele I seen a very talented player at Arden Street Sunday who would have been a handy replacement Luke Dunstan way too good for Vfl Don’t be surprised to see melbourne blood Jacob Van Rooyen a 126 k FWD /def Kicked 6 and looks every inch a player Choco Williams says he is a super talent however Weideman also booted 6 and may have an edge NDD

Russty_

With Billings and jones back I’m hoping that helps, also that sinclair’s scores might even go up a bit too, i think Dunstan’s problems with the coach was his lack of effort

demonsdelight

hi rust at the dees and with the talent already there ,a lack of effort won’t cut it.Effort is what has driven players on the cusp like Jordan to become senior fixtures There is a mini fight for places on every line hence the depth available .i saw 6 players at Arden Street who could seamlessly slot into Melbourne Tomlinson Bedford weideman VanRooyen Dunstan Daw ( don”’t laugh at that one Russty he ragdolled a bigger Monhurst and was arguably BOG) not to mention Mitch Brown (coming off a bag) Melksham and HIbberd a certain starter in the best 22 and that’s what sets us apart where other teams can’t handle a great player like Steele or Bont missing . Billings Jones Sinclair and Ross have improved but the talent below them needs to improve like membrey Highmore Long and Battle Well on the way mate and they have the right coach I hope they make it

Russty_

Long may your lads reign mate, it was a long time coming, our team just doesn’t have enough A grade talent unfortunately, good showing so far but I doubt it’ll last at the business end. When you waste massive money and time on a washed up old spud like Hannebery, you’re just doing your dough, bigtime

demonsdelight

Owens is worth another go and Windhagen looks good a few up and comers there to replace Hannas

Russty_

Owens seems to go great in the 2’s and then looks like a Deer in the headlights when he’s with the big boys lol, Windhager is starting to look ok.

gator59

Rumour has it that Saints are getting Karl Amon next year from Port Adelaide.. I think he’s out of contract at the end of the year and is a passionate Saints supporter.. Also his mother works at the Saints

demonsdelight

You would have to say Crouch is a tick and Amon was in the A A group so they are headed in the right direction .A finals win would be enough for a great year

Russty_

Sounds good mate, hopefully it happens and he thrives at the Saints.

Derek

Oh Dang, GWS play West Coast this week! sigh, will probably hold Whitfield again……

Monday trade plans are:

OUT: Steele & SDK
IN: Mills & Clark

Russty_

Finally Millsy makes his debut! 🙂

Derek

he is expensive, but he is my favourite player, makes watching the swans so much better.

I’m thinking to use a trade boost to go Whitfield to Lloyd, GWS play WCE, so i know what will happen if i trade him out.

Russty_

Whitfield seemed to score alright the last few weeks playing forward until that last game, I got rid of him round 5 for Sinclair so no regrets there.

Lazza

I’d put the VC on him for you Derek if I had him .. 🙃

Matty C

Pretty stoked with a 2410 this week to rise to 182 overall. I’ve been going hard though and only have 19 trades and 1 boost left. Onfield rookies are Daicos and Martin with Cogs also looking like he might need to be upgraded.

Tough decisions to make this week! Steele will need to go with likely Mills or Laird to come in and Clark will need to come in for a rookie. If I boosted, I could possibly upgrade one of Daicos, Martin or Cogs but couldn’t afford an uber premo. Mills might come down in price a bit more too so waiting a little for him might be the smart play, but he could easily put out another big score and hold his price too. My bye profile is a little round 13 heavy so don’t think I could bring in Mills and Laird for my last two positions if I upgraded before the bye. Stuck in two minds about whether my last midfield slot should go to a Brayshaw type and upgrade asap or upgrade defence first and save up for both big guns.

Think this will be a defining week for many!

Lazza

I’ll wait on Mills too.. doubt his price will go much higher… Laird in for Steele and Ward to Clark this week.

Russty_

Great score Matty, seems like you avoided some of that carnage that hit many, nice rank too, I was thereabouts last week, fell back to 456 this week.

Matty C

Yes, got lucky with a few going big like Treloar, Sicily and Trac (who I traded in for Rowell this week) then only copped the bullets that most copped like Martin, Cripps, Steele and Coniglio. Not feeling as confident about my choices this week though. Hope you climb back up the ranks quickly mate!

Lazza

Beware… this week I’m looking at Macrae into Laird (replaces Steele) … sick of the so called Capt locks…

Russty_

Please don’t ruin Lairdy Laz I only got him in last week. 😉

Lazza

😂 .. I might reverse the trade and bring in Trac just to upset Derek for beating me by 2 points .. 😁

Russty_

ouch! 2 points is harsh lol, I beat Gator by 10 last week, sorry about that mate.

demonsdelight

close games might end up with lots of dogs dunkley libba english baz treloar cleary and buka hmm plus dale too many?

Russty_

Nah mate go for it if it works with your byes, I might be bringing a Doggy in this week.
