    Anyone know if the following could be done with only 1 trade?

    If I started with:

    Kruezer in the Ruck
    Hale as a Forward
    Smedts as a Defender

    Could I swap Kruezer with Hale in the Ruck, switch Smedts to a Forward & Trade Kruezer for a Defender with 1 trade?

      Yes you can swap Kruezer & Hale around, both have dpp R/F, so no probs there.
      Now with 1 trade, it is IMPOSSIBLE to TRADE OUT 2 players!!!

      What you can do is trade out Kruezer, and swing Smedts into the forward line with his B/F dpp, which now leaves you with a vacant spot in your backline, where you trade in a defender.

      So basically, you can trade out Kruezer for a Defender, but Smedts stays in your team, just goes from def to fwds.

        Kruezer isn’t a DPP R/F.

          Sorry mate, my bad, (wtf was I thinking?!!!) Answer still the same though.

          OK, so you trade out Kruezer, swing Hale to Ruck, Smedts to the fwd line trade in Defender.

      1st off put the player you want to trade up for trade…this then leaves his spot on the roster vacant….Now you can move any eligible players to that spot…

      eg: put kruezer up for trade…opening a spot on in the ruck . Move any eligible player to the ruck spot ie: Hale..this now opens a spot in the forwards that any eligble player can be moved to ie: Smedts.
      Now draft a defender and your done…1 Trade no problemo.

      Im pretty sure you can only move one player around per trade. So if you trade out Kreuzer, you can move Hale to the Ruck but then you wont be able to move smedts to the forward line. Thats hows it works in the NRL dreamteam so I assume it will be the same here.

    Yes you could trade Kreuzer for a defender using that strategy. Just to clarify – the DT Talk boys probably explain this more clearly than I can!! Copy and pasted from a FAQ article:

    “I’m a bit confused, how does the new DPP trading rules work?”

    This has been mentioned a couple of times before, but here’s a recap. We can now trade a player out from one position and using Dual Position Players (DPP), can trade a player into a totally different position with only one trade.

    Let’s look at an example using a 2011 scenario. I trade out a DEFENDER (eg. Jack Grimes) and am left with an empty slot. I substitute a DEF/MID who is currently in my midfield (eg. Dyson Heppell) into Grimes’ empty slot and how trade in a new MIDFIELDER (eg. Dane Swan) into Heppell’s empty slot. So basically I have been able to trade Grimes (DEF) out for Swan (MID) using only the one trade.

      I think you may have missed the point.
      His question, can I switch Smedts to a forward and Kruezer to a defender with one trade?
      IF he asked can I switch Smedts to the forward line and Kruezer to a defender with one trade, then YES.

      I’ve gone Heppell … A little wary of Broughtons midfield time with Mundy Barlow Morabito and co. still to return.

      Not buying into the “2nd year blues” with this fella .. should gun it

        As stated by member yesterday.

        If you are considering playing a rookie in front of a mid-pricer why have the mid-pricer in the first place.
