    MIDS: Fyfe, Pendlebury, Lewis, Parker, Heppell, Wallis, Cripps, Saad (Amon, Glenn)
    RUCKS: Blivcas, Kreuzer (Naismith, Downie)
    FWDS: Gray, Swan, Martin, Dahlhaus, Mitchell, McKernan (Lambert, Fantasia)

    Cash: $19,000

    I’m thinking of going Saad to Steele but i’m not to sure on my second trade possibly to downgrade Glenn or Fantasia but i’m not sure who to, thoughts on trades appreciated. Thanks!

    • Id be tempted to rid yourself of glenn, if hes not getting a game by now, hes not likely getting a game for awhile.

      Would that give you enough to upgrade Saad?

  • Ah…that moment you realise you have vc on gray when you were cheering swanny all game cos you thought vc was on him…do’h

    • lmao. If it makes you feel any better i’m taking Swannys 132 all the way to the piggy bank :)

      • Sorry if that came across as rubbing it in though. I do feel your pain mate

    • I feel that pain my friend that was me last week. Thought I’d VC’d ebert and C’d Pendles.. But no

  • DEF: Picken, SHAW, NEWNES, Rich, Saad, Jake Kolo (Kelly, Nelson)
    MID: Fyfe, Pendles, Armo, Macrae, Trelor, Cripps, VBerg, Mcintosh (Dumont, Lambert)
    RUC: Goldy, Sinclair (Downie, King)
    FWD: Dusty, #oink, Gray, Higgins, Hogan, McKernan (Clark, McGuane)

    Trades:
    Dahl > Shaw via Higgins
    CEY > Newnes via KMac

  • My 1 bloody goal is to have all of Hodge, Boyd, Mundy, Picken and Shaw within 2 weeks!

    • I still have none(!) Running with Simpson, Hibberd, Newnes, McVeigh, Smith and Malceski and hoping that durability wins out over scores in the end…

      • That’s the classic “almost premo” backline. Solid 80-100’s but wouldnt like their chances H2H vs Hodge, Boyd etc. Still… would beat a lot of teams defences atm

        Out of that lot I’ve got Hibbo and will be holding him at D5/6. Still have great confidece in him after what he was able to produce last year. Have the Hodge, Boyd, Mundy trifecta as of this week and looking to go Yeo > Picken very soon. Fingers crossed

  • DEF: Mundy, Newnes, Hibberd, Rich, Oxley, Saad (Hambling, Pearce)

    MIDS: Lewis, Barlow, Sidebottom, Beams, Fyfe, Parker, Cripps, Dumont (Acres, Kavanagh)

    RUCKS: Martin, Jacobs, (Mckernan, Downie)

    FWDS: Swan, Gray, Martin, Mitchell, Dahlhaus, Steele (Krakouer, Lambert)

    $51k left. With all the players out my trade plans went out the window.

    Not entirely sure what to do.
    Thinking at the moment acres and saad out for rocky and fields. Leaves me with $15k and playing either Pearce or fields on the field.

    Would appreciate any thoughts or suggestions.

  • Score prediction for Lambert anyone?

  • DEF: Newnes, Laird, Mundy, Boyd, Yeo, A. Pearce (Edwards, Smedts)

    MID: Barlow, Priddis, Rischitelli, Pendlebury, Armitage, Boston, Cripps, Wallis (Anderson, Glenn)

    RUCK: Goldstein, Naitanui (Downie, Holmes)

    FWD: Martin, Gray, Swan, Mitchell, Steele, Dalhaus (Fantasia, Byrne)

    $29k in the kitty
    Any thoughts and ideas appreciated

  • I cant believe it but even after Kolo burnt me at the start of the year i cant look ast him on the run home.

    • Eski returning to form will burn you with Kolo for the 2nd time. DT gods have been extra cruel this season

  • First trade Saad -> Smith
    Should I take Clurey’s 34 and do Cripps/Wallis -> Rocky
    OR upgrade Hamling to Simpson/Kolo and leave Clurey as my E?

    • Easy decision definitely ham to Kolo

    • You dont want a carlton player look at their next 3 games

      • My issue is, if I bring in Kolo this week, I have to do one up one down next week, and Rocky will cost more. If I get Rocky this week, I should have enough money to do Wallis -> Ablett and Colq -> McVeigh if he doesn’t get named. 3 premos vs 2

  • How many is too many premiums from one side, especially if they’re all midfielders?

    Someone on the previous page was looking at bringing in JPK to a side that already has Parker and Mitchell which is exactly what I’m looking at doing this week.

    I think three is fine from a top side who are likely to score well and win the majority of their games, although you’d be pretty happy if you had Steven, Armitage and Montagna from the Saints in your side right now!

    What are people’s thoughts on this?

    • That person may have been me… I dont think it’s a problem tbh. The three Saints have shown they can all get 110+ with all of them playing so like you said, you’d be happy havig them all :)

  • I’m having a bit of trouble deciding on my second trade

    -Saad/Thurlow > Boyd/Picken/Hodge/Mundy/McVeigh
    -Boston > S.Mitchell/JPK/Mundy/Rischitelli/Rocky
    -Maric > Glodstein/Jacobs

    There’s a lot of good options there, but which ones the winner? I like Saad to Boyd, Boston to Rocky, and Maric to Goldy, but the other options are pretty good too. Who should I trade and who should I trade them to? Only one trade.

    Help and/or suggestions appreciated.

  • Anyone know what the go is with Tom Michell? Him nankirvis and Robinson are named as the emergencies according to the app I checked. Surely that can’t be right??

  • when can we move our captain selection from
    our non playing player? vcd ebert last night. Yawn.

    • Should be able to do it now. I changed mine and I’ll be getting swan as captain now

  • Best downgrade option out of Daniel, Knight, Prudden, Harmes, O.Brien, Garner and why? (if possible) Thanks!

  • hey guys, really torn on who to get out of hodge and armo? can see them both going massive this week. don’t have steven so armo will be my only saints player. thoughts on who i should go with?

  • hamling >
    A) J.Kolo
    B) pay a little extra for Browne
