Happy DT coach or Sacked DT coach? Round 19 Review

Are you riding high after this week and sailing into finals loving life? Or has your club sat behind closed doors and realised you are now playing off for the Tit-Ed Cup… or worse still, sitting in 17th or 18th and missing any form of DT finals action? Matty Primus finished 18th in his league and his Dream Team FC delivered him the message that he is no longer head coach. How did you fare in Round 19?

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!

    Team Name: Wolfpack FC
    Round 19 Score: 2216
    League Results/Positions: WWW
    Eliminator Status: Gone
    DT Studs: Ablett, Dangerfield, Deledio, Sidebottom, Maric, Swan, Beams, Watson, Boyd
    DT Duds: Porplyzia (Injury reason but), Suckling, Kreuzer, Birchall
    On the Chopping Block: No one yet
    Trades this week: None

    Was up against the top of the table opponent, who was undefeated all season. Started Kreuzer over Giles, Had Suckling and Porps as uniques.

    All was looking bad. Came down to Watson and Heppell. In the end, after the siren, I was a point behind. A late tackle added onto Watson score but, put me in front by three points. Stoked. (Also, had a three point win in another league as well :S)

      My ruck scores this week add up to Sandi’s height.

      I think that’s pretty cool.

      I’m fairly easily amused.

        Agreed. Just thought more people were losing patience with him.

        To be honest, I was hoping he’d become unique-ish :p

    Scored about 2170 and had sucking captain (wtf) and no emerg for Robinson.

    Should have gotten about 2300.
    Got 3 trades left and not sure where my weakest link is.

      Ok now I don’t feel so bad!

      Shows that luck does play a huge part in this game. I managed to scrape into the 8 by half a percentage point, and I’m 2nd top scorer in my league.

      Nope. I am contemplating playing at least one of Treloar and Devon Smith over Mitch Robinson….they have strubng together 3 good scores in a row and not sure I trust Robbo this week. after a fairly long break.
