  • Ok people. Can you all let me know which trades are best??

    I am getting out McCarthy and Thurlow

    KK/Daniel and $60k

    Mundy/Daniel and $28k

    Picken/Lambert or Knight and $25k

    KK/Lamber or Knight and $110k


  • DEF: Mundy, McVeigh, Boyd, Newnes, Yeo, Hamling (Clurey, Pearce)
    MID: Pendles, Lewis, Parker, Treloar, Hodge, Wallis, Cripps, Amon (Dumont, Harmes)
    RUCK: Goldy, Martin (McKernan, Holmes)
    FWD: Martin, Gray, Swan, Dahlhaus, Franklin, Steele (Krakouer, Cox)

    What are my priorities to improve: Def rookies, Wallis, Cripps, Dumont, Franklin?
    I’m pretty sure I want to bring in Rocky this week but Buddy has been spudding recently as well. Let me know your thoughts! Thanks!

    • I think you need to work on the D6, Hamling is risky to field.
      Just a thought McKernan is a lot safer to field than Amon, Id try DDP Cox to your ruck and move McKernan to your FWD line to field, then try get Steele to MID 8. Maybe downgrade Dumont to Riley Knight then swap him with Steele and bench Amon.
      Wallis or Cripps to Rocky would be a good move to.

  • Thoughts on these trades please:
    3K in the bank
    DEF:Yeo, Simpson, Hibberd, Gibson, Oxley, Smith (Jones / Schade)
    MID:Fyfe, Ebert, Lewis, Parker, Macrae, Wallis, Newnes, Amon (Dumont / Nelson)
    RUCK:Goldy, Jacobs
    FWD:Dusty, Titchell, Swan, Reiwoldt, Dahlhaus, McKernan (Fantasia / McGrath)

    1: Oxley to Z Williams, Wallis to Rocky. $134k in the bank for next week
    2: Oxley to Knight, Wallis to Rocky. DPP newnes to DEF completing it. Fielding Knight and Amon in the Mid. $215k in the bank to upgrade Dumont next week to $525k player


    • Tbh, I don’t like the idea of trading in a rook and putting him straight on field after one game, but in saying that, you can take the punt on it. If I were to choose one, it’d be option 2 since Newnes is in DEF and you got more of extra cash to spend next wk.

      • Thanks for the input, I am not sold on the idea of fielding a rookie either. I figure Knight would score similar to Oxley, but make cash instead of drop cash. Hopefully it pays off!

  • DEF: Mundy, Enright, Kolodjashnij, Newnes, Hibberd, Smith (Colquhoun, Clurey)
    MID: Steven, Pendles, Fyfe, Parker, Wallis, Bont, Cripps, Steele (Dumont, Kav)
    RUC: Martin, Jacobs (McKernan, Holmes)
    FWD: Swan, Martin, Mitchell, Gray, Ziebell, Greene (Lambert, Cox)

    117k in the bank
    Wallis -> Rockliff
    Assuming Colquhoun / Dumont / Kavanagh all aren’t named

    A) Dumont/Kavanagh -> Knight
    B) Colquhoun -> Fields
    C) Something else?

  • Ablett, Rockliff, Dangerfield, Boyd or Lewis?

  • RDT

    Def: Picken, Hodge, KK, Simmo, Yeo, Newnes (Hamling, McKenzie)
    Mid: Lewis, Pendles, Beams, HepD, Parker, Ebert, Titch, Bont (Lambert, Amon, Glenn)
    Ruck: Goldi, Jacobs (Kern)
    Fwd: Goddard, Dusty, Gray, Swan, Ziebell, Steele (Krak, cordy).

    About $170k only 4 trades.

    The team is rockyless. I wanted to 1 trade krak > Rocky in mids this week but rocky scored too high and krak didnt play.

    Is it worth using 2 of my last 4 trades to get Rocky in and completing my team, or sitting and holding?

  • DEF:Mundy,Yeo,Kk,Newnes,Taylor,Smith (Hamling, Byrne)
    MID:Fyfe,Lewis,Treloar, Heppell,Telli,Barlow,Boston,(Dumont,Amon)
    RUC:Goldy,Kreuzer (Mkernan,Cox)
    FWD:Martin,Swan,Titch,Grey,Bont,Steele (Fantasia,Lambert)

    I have reversed my trades multiple times this week and this is what I’v done atm

    Got $50,000 in the bank

    Thinking of going Hamling>Fields and Cripps>Rockliff which would leave me with $79,000 left over

    Then next week I could go two of Telli/Barlow> Ablett and Fantasia>Daniel

    This of course completely goes out the door if Boston doesn’t play

    I was thinking of going Dumont>Knight but went with Hamling>Fields instead. If there’s anything I’m missing please help.


    • I’d go with option 1. Even if Fields gets dropped, it’ll probably be Byrne coming in for him. Riscatelli for Ablett next week for sure.

  • Gaz or rocky?

    • Rocky purely on break evens. If Gaz gets a 120+ he wont go up as much as Rocky would

  • DEF: Boyd, McVeigh, Simpson, Yeo, Newnes, Hibberd (Hamling, Dick)
    MID: Pendlebury, Macrae, Fyfe, JPK, Rockliff, Wallis, Cripps, Kavanagh (Dumont, Amon)
    RUC: Goldstein, Jacobs (McKernan, O’Brien)
    FWD: Martin, Swan, Mitchell, Westhoff, Bontempelli, Steele (Lambert, Clark)

    $10k left

    Really need one of Kav, Dumont or Amon to play this week!

    Am looking at either going:

    Clark to Caleb Daniel and Wallis to Hodge $11k left.


    Wallis to Nick O’Brien and Cripps to Hodge $187k left.

    Any other ideas???

  • ablett or lewis

  • Pick 1 to field out of Krakouer,Lambert or McKernan ?

    • mckernan, krakouer, lambert in that order, mckernan wont be sub others could be

      • Yeah good point but could score like a sub against Goldy

        • who would he get subbed for, who would do the ruck??

          • Nah I meant he will get killed against Goldy possibly leaving him with a score similar to someone that was a sub

    • John Freed

      McKernan, should be good for 65+, a score that Lambert hasn’t even reached yet. Krakoeur isn’t even conformed in the team yet, still only in the squad

  • Who to trade out of Saad and Hamling?? They both aren’t playing this week… NOTE: The other player will be traded out next week..

    • if you’re trading out both may as well go saad as it leaves you more money in case you need it. Can you help below?

    • John Freed

      Both listed as test, but I’d trade Hamling first. If carnage strikes, who would you rather be stuck with? I know for me that I’d rather Saad

  • any one reckon taylor ganrner worth a punt??

    • John Freed

      Not bad, but I’d rather Knight or Daniel or even Lambert. If you already have those 3, then you should be looking to upgrade.

  • Which downgrade should I make?
    Clark to Downie (Mckernan fwd)
    Mccarthy to Knight
    Colquhoon to Fields

    Thoughts on which trade and why?

  • John Freed

    Def: Hodge, Shaw, Roberton, Oxley, Rich, Smith (Pearce, Colq)
    Mid: Lewis, Pendles, Beams, Heppell, Priddis, Blicavs, Sidey, Cripps (Kav, Lambert)
    Ruc: Martin, Jacobs (Griffin, ROB)
    Fwd: Dusty, Gray, Dahlhaus, Smith, Lynch, McKernan (Daniel, McBean)
    $35k in the bank

    Was planning to go Rich-> Fields and Cripps-> Rocky, leaving $211k, but I don’t trust Fields/Pearce on field with Colquhoun not playing.
    So considering
    1: Rich-> Fields and Colq-> Mundy. This leaves just Ox, Cripps and McKernan as rookies onfield
    2: Rich-> Z. Williams and Oxley-> Laird. Only Cripps/McKernan onfield
    3: Kav-> Knight and Rich-> Laird. Ox, Cripps, McK to go
    4. Something else
    Opinions and ideas are greatly appreciated.

  • DEF: Picken, Mundy, Yeo, Oxley, B Smith, Edwards, ( Kelly, Hamling )
    MID: Pendles, Dangerfield, Jelwood, Cripps, Wallis, JPK, Rockliff, Van Berlo (Amon, Boston)
    RUC: Nat, Mckernan, (Cox, Clark)
    FWD: Dusty, Swan, Goddard, Ziebell, Leun, Membrey, (Knight, McIness)

    Bank: $20k

    1- Jelwood & VanB to Ablett & Daniels
    2- Van Berlo & Membrey to Steele & Daniels
    3- Jelwood & Kelly to Steele & Malceski
    Or any other trade thoughts are welcome!

    • 2, jelwood is only out for the week, plus steele and daniels should earn some cash.

  • Current trades are T.Adams > Rockliff and Oxley > Hodge
    Leaves $16,000 in piggy bank for next week

  • need to get rid of some non playing rookies. what order would you trade these guys out in?


    hoping boston and colquhoun get games again soon but i hate seeing that ugh cash sitting on a red dot.

    • Kavanagh, Colquhoun (has cash but not playing), Boston (same as Colq), Schade, Clurey

  • My Team:
    DEF: Boyd, McVeigh, Yeo, Hibberd, Newnes, Oxley (Byrne, Clurey)
    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: $101,000

    I’m thinking of going Oxley to Smith/Malceski/Z.Williams or even Fields (which one???) and Wallis to Rockliff, thoughts on trades or other trades! Thanks

  • Guys, I have saad and Pittard out this week, I originally brought in fields and rocky
    Tex and Pittard out with Jake kolo replacing saad. Now that I’m playing Jake kolo and tom fields, is it worth it going Fields and hodge in and waiting on rocky for another week?

  • trades right for this week?

    McCarthy –> Dahlhaus (no, can’t afford Bartel…)
    Saad –> Fields

    D: Hodge, Boyd, Hibberd, Laird, Newnes, Z. Jones (Colquhoun, Fields)
    M: Fyfe, Pendlebury, Ebert, Lewis, Parker, Heppell, Wallis, Cripps (Glenn, Amon)
    R: Goldstein, Martin (McKernan, Holmes)
    F: Martin, Swan, Dahlhaus, Gray, Riewoldt, Steele (Lambert, Fantasia)

    2k in the bank after trades. will look at upgrading my F6 next week.

    • if i try and get rocky in, will mean having to:
      a) keep and play McCarthy, or b) play buy a rookie like caleb daniel and play him at F6…

      • You could downgrade Colq > Fields and upgrade Cripps > Rocky, leaves 92k

        However, the number one objective is I guess to get rid of rooks now so your trades are the best in this situation.

        Try to get Rocky next wk by upgrading Cripps and downgrading Colq > a 120k rook at D8.

  • Is Daniel a vest risk and does he have good JS

    • Daniels would be a vest risk, but a lot of rooks are so just be wary and only really have on bench. And yes Daniels does have good JS, he is truly a workhorse.

  • Best player under 559k? already have rocky

    • You got Gaz? If you haven’t, really unlucky but I’d try to do anything to get Gaz too.

      But for the best player under 559k, I’d say Priddis, Lewis or even S.Mitchell as a POD.

      • Yeah i was pretty devo about it. What are your thoughts on sidebottom and Hanley and also to get Gaz I could play Fields on the field

        • And then next week I could upgrade Hamling to Malceski leaving Fields back on the bench

          • Sidey and Hanley are interesting PODs as they have shown in past they are top notch premos. Wouldn’t mind getting Sidey but Hanley more likely chance of getting tagged.

            Your trade plan is good, just make sure to include Gaz along the way, he won’t change much in price which will be good.

  • Kolodjashnij, Newnes, or Laird?
    Need to win this week to make finals

  • Hodge, Yeo, Gibson, Newnes, Hibberd, B.Martin, (Schade, Hamling)

    Lewis, Parker, Beams, Heppell, Barlow, Wallis, Dumont, Harmes (Kavanagh Amon)

    Jacobs, Goldy (Nasimith, Holmes)

    Gray, Swan, Dusty, Titchell, D. Smith, Steele (Lambert, Krak)

    Bank 222k.
    Thinking of Kav -> rocky and Krak -> caleb daniel and fielding either Amon or Harmes until next week :(

  • Wallis or cripps to rocky?

  • DEF: Hodge,Mundy,Yeo,Hibberd,Oxley,Smith (Browne,Byrne)
    MID: Beams,Neale,Lewis,Ellis,Ebert,Rockliff,Newnes,Steele (Amon,Glenn)
    RUC: Goldstein,Jacobs (Downie,Holmes)
    FWD: Swan,MArtin,Mitchell,Gray,Dahlhaus,McKernan (Lambert,Fantasia)

    $6k in the bank.

    Oxley needs to go so i was thinking Jacobs-Kreuzer and Oxley-McVeigh. Thoughts?

  • Boston to Knight
    Dumont to Ablett

    Holding Jelwood and it’s nice to again have a mid E.

  • How do these trades sound?
    Wallis/Lumumba to Rockliff/Williams
    Next week:
    Saad/Dumont to Fields/Ablett

  • Thoughts on my team

    Def: Hodge, Mundy, Yeo, Laird, Hibbo, Smith (Scade, J,kolo)
    Mid: JPK, Fyfe, Priddis, Parker, Pendles, Rocky, Cripps, Griffen (Amon, Lambert)
    Ruc: Mckernan, Goldy (Downie, Holmes)
    FWD: Gray, Swan, Martin, Mitchell, Bartel, Bont (Byrne, Fantasia)

    Trades were,
    Adams to Bartel
    Dummont to Griffen.

    • My lowest ranked DEF= YEO (88.1)
      Your lowest ranked DEF= SMITH (70.7)

      My lowest ranked MID= ROCKLIFF (84.1)
      Your lowest ranked MID= GRIFFEN (79.1)

      Ruck and Fwd is the same.

      The only way I can give thoughts on your team is by comparing it to mine… It’s all very similar apart from your midfield and defence. I have a complete mid and backline (Hodge, Mundy, Boyd, McVeigh, Yeo, Simpson) and (Pendles, Parker, Heppell, Ablett, Rocky, Fyfe, Beams, Lewis).

      You still need 3 defenders (get rid of Laird, Hibbo and Smith) and 2 mids (get rid of Cripps and Griffen)

      • That’s silly advice don’t trade Laird

        • You could have Laird in your final team. I personally wouldn’t as I feel like there are better options.

  • Which options better?

    1) Hamling>Fields + Wallis/Cripps >Gaz/Lewis/JPK

    2) Ebert>Griffin + Wallis/Cripps > Gaz/Lewis/JPK

    • 1 for me… Hamling may come back soon, but I doubt he will go past 250k. I would probably trade Wallis before Cripps, and I would bring in Gaz or Lewis

  • who are the best 3 defenders that you need to have

    • I’d say (in order): Hodge, Picken, Boyd

      Then Mundy, Shaw, Kolo, McVeigh, Simpson, Yeo, Newnes…..

      That’s based on recent performances…. I haven’t really looked into future fixtures.

      My backline consists of Hodge, Boyd, Mundy, McVeigh, Simpson and Yeo…. I will probably try and get Picken in for Yeo/Simpson in a couple of weeks time

    • def hodge picken boyd then imo mundy mcveigh then one of yeo shaw laird newnes

  • What does everyone think of going wallis > steele and then upgrading oxley to hodge?

    Defence after it would be hodge, shaw, mundy , newnes, hibberd, smith
    And mids after would be : beams, parker, heppell , neale, ebert, ellis, rocky, steele

  • Trade Dumont or Kavanagh?

    • They both need to go… Probably Kav first! If North gave Dumont a full game, he could easily score a hundred

  • McVeigh, Simmo, Newnes, Hibbo, Eski, Tarrent (Schade, Clurey)
    Beams, Fyfe, Parker, I.Smith, Wines, Barlow, Jelwood, Cripps (Ah Chee, Prudden)
    Goldy, Kreuz (Holmes, Clark)
    Dusty, Swan, Titchell, Gray, Boomer, McCarthy (O’Reily, Lambert)

    Have some options would like to know others opinions

    Option 1)
    Bench Jelwood, play Prudden
    McCarthy > Knight and Tarrent > B.Smith

    Option 2)
    Cash in Clark and upgrade Cripps to Ablett/Rocky (Prudden plays)

    Option 3)
    Jelwood > Daniel/Knight DPP Swan and McCarthy > Goddard

    Option 4)
    Jelwood > Daniel/Knight DPP Swan and Tarrent > Mundy

  • Dom Sheed or Brodie Smith
