    Goddard Heppell Gibbs Mcenzie Hanley Ibbotson Ellis Clisby

    Which two do I bench. The 1st one is obviously Clisby but who is the other one.

    Please Answer

  • Should i make gibbs M9 and trade mitchell for hartkett/scotland?

  • Trade out Terlich or Grimes? And who should I get McKenzie (Plays Melb), Enright or Hanley?

    Finals Positions: 6,6,5,6
    Eliminator Status: Ha.
    DT Studs: Jack, Cotchin, Beams, Leunberger, Cox, Rockliff, JJK, Johnson
    DT Duds: My whole backline, headed by Malceksi, Gibbs, McKenzie and Grimes
    On the Chopping Block: Grimes, McKenzie, Zorko (I know, don’t laugh…) and potentially Titch, but he’ll still be a good M9.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Decent score, trust the week I bring in Kreuzer is the week he’s slightly off the boil though… McKenzie and Grimes were terrible inclusions in the last two weeks, might just ship them out again. Operation get the Irish Lion in is in full swing.

    DT Duds: Stanton, Ablett, Kreuzer,Gibbs, Heppell
    On the Chopping Block: Stanton, Heath Shaw (poor record against the Swans)
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Stanton to Dayne Beams and Heath to Heath (Scotland) the planned moves this week. Can’t ignore Scotland’s form and the WBD have been easy to score against. Beams against Sydney should still be solid.

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Im going Cornes to either Cotchin, Griffen, Scooter, Jelwood, Montagna. And either stokes or JJK to hansen/ N.Riewoldt. Advice please

    • What’s your beef with JJK? Lowest score of 72 for the year is great consistency to take into finals. Plus he tonned on the weekend…

    On the Chopping Block: Gibbs, Roughead.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Depending on whether Ibbotson is back in or not is the difference between the defence trade. Seriously fuck Gibbs and his damn inconsistency. And Roughead has been nothing but a dead weight since i got him. My team is sitting pretty at the moment though at 1,161 overall. Bring on the finals!
