Swanny’s 171: Round 5 Review

The ANZAC Round is over for 2012 and after a ripper start on Wednesday with Swanny pumping out a huge 171, making him the most successful Loophole Captain ever, it turned to shit for the rest of the weekend. Massive late withdrawals from Hargrave, Birchall and Porplyzia left many a coach with a donut. Time to get your review on for Round 5.

Before you start preparing for next week, it’s time to review your squad’s effort this weekend in the DT TALK Round Review. Every Sunday night when the last game finishes, jump on here and let the world know how you went!

    I need to do a mid upgrade but none of Magner, Old Mac, Greene or Shiel are close to being ripe.

    Shiel being the only one sort of close.

    Facing a mega strong midfield this week with Swan, Boyd, MM and Pendles.

    My premos are Stanton, Thompson and Ablett but he’s gonna miss of course.

    Upgrade Shiel now?

    DT Studs: Swan, Rockliff, Dangerfield, Pendlebury, Deledio. Good support from the rooks (Bugg, Greene, Magner, Giles)

    DT Duds: Goddard (I could have had Pendles’ VC score but got greedy and put the ‘C’ on BJ…), Cox, Franklin, Stevie J and Birchall/Hargrave for dropping out late. Clarke let me down with his tagging role but he has still been alright this year.

    On the Chopping Block: I’d love to rage trade Coxy to HMac and Goddard to Scotland but I won’t. Another week of fattening the cows.

    Round 5 trades: 21 remaining. All my cash cows are set up and just waiting til they max out.

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Overall ranking of 3,876. Not too shabby, though I did drop down 1,333 spots this round. Still hanging in there.

      Maybe Waters in the backline and don’t discount Christensen in the FWDs. Pretty damn cheap and 95, 110 and 101 in last 3 weeks.

      April 30, 2012 at 4:28 pm

      The question is where are you lacking the most? In your case I’d suggest a DEF however in saying that I think Clarke’s job on Stanton is a one off and I can’t see him being a regular hard tagger.

      He’s projected to earn about $18K next week and has a BE of 26 which he’ll get easily.

      You need to look at Rd 11 & 12 defenders – Waters has been a cracker so far averaging 90, A freo defender like Duffield could be interesting as well.
