Round 1 Lockout Chat

Rolling blog updating what you need to know to get your team sorted.

Sunday 6:55am

Happy Easter everyone. Some of us will need some Jesus like resurrections to make us happy about our fantasy teams this weekend. Already we will have a few things to think about for next week. Steele Sidebottom is confirmed to miss a “few weeks” with a broken thumb that requires surgery. Roy’s boy Tom Rockliff may have broken his ribs. He spent a night in hospital and we’ll update with news once we know it. It’s positive news for Luke Parker after dominating the first three-quarters and being KO’d by Buddy. All of this with some pretty average scoring. Anything over 1800 looks to be pretty good!

Take us on in our Sunday/Monday league for Moneyball.

Hawthorn vs Geelong 


  • Well first year playing Fantasy, looking at a best possible score of 1700 with newnes, lumumba, kolo, ablett, rocky, parker, martin and salem all performing wonderfully. How do you guys do this to yourself every year.

  • Put Hamling on field to grab McIntosh’s 101
    + thought I’d be clever going unique with Mackie
    = Rd 1 Donut.


    • That’s the danger of trying to use the loophole mate, unlucky

    • There would be a few using Smedts (mackies replacement) as the loophole too.

      Not as bad though.

  • anderson or cockatoo?

  • 1705 with Lewis & Clark to go.
    Ebert (163) kind of made up for Griffen (48).

  • Albert Lloyd mate. Sure you must be loving your Sutcliffe and Taylor selections, if of course you went trolling. Feel sorry for everyone you took under your wing and suggested they get on the GOAT Train too.


  • Everyone SHHHH and don’t jinx Lewis!!

  • Fair to say that Duncan as a POD isn’t working out well this week, but what is? 3 points in the 3rd quarter…

  • Considering his lack of opportunities I have been very impressed with Mitch Clark. Seen him a few times when the ball wasn’t coming forward run to the wing/defence to pick up possessions too.

  • Someone in my league had this team.

    Def: Hodge, Simpson, Kelly, Smith, Hunt, Mcintosh
    Mid: Lewis, Heppel, Ebert, Boak, Wines, Rich, Newton, Heeney
    Ruck: Blicavs, Berger
    Fwd: Gray, Walker, Bontempelli, Mcgovern, Garlett, Clark

  • Hey what are your thoughts on Ablett to Hunt (via Saad) and Sidey to Barlow?
