            For what it’s worth (very little) the official Carlton sight says it’s a slight calf strain and they expect it to be one week.

          Or have no cover: Titchell & Priddis become Beams & Jelwood/K-Jack

    Is Rowe worth giving a go on the field? Got 76 last week and with Kreuzer out is bound to get more ruck time? Other option is Roughead, but then I need to play Stanton or Grimes over Barlow and Hanley.

    Any opinions appreciated :)

      Cloke has a poor Sydney record, but he’s been pretty good recently. They’re all going well lately, so it’s a nice problem to have. Tough call.

      I’d play Hansen. Bartell’s form has not been great recently since he has been given a more defensive role.

    Need to raise money to triple upgrade Priddis, Titchell and Deledio in next 4 trades.

    Was gonna go staker > oxley before ruck carnage.

    How does Nicholls > McBean with Cox going back to ruck via DPP?

    Weakens my bench quite a bit until Kreuzer is back, with Staker as f7, while Grundy will become r3 for the rest of the year regardless.

    This hurts!

      Just a thought, with only a few rounds to go…Lets say you downgrade twice this week with the plan to upgrade over the next couple weeks, then you get injuries.

      Then as a result of those injuries you have to sideways trade to cover the injuries, then you end the season with all that spare cash wasted because your plans got ruined by injury.

      I think at this time of the year setting up plans weeks in advance could backfire on you

        Was that in reply to me? I’m only single downgrading, but your point is a good one, cash in hand is worth very little at this stage.

        I’m hoping Nicholls > McBean doesn’t backfire, but I’ve got Staker/McBean on my fwd bench with DPP links to Henderson and Cox respectively, so I hope i’m safe in planning for a double upgrade next week.

    Hey guys, need your help.

    Option 1:
    Buddy -> Hansen
    M.Murphy -> Barlow

    Option 2:
    Buddy -> Hansen
    Z.Clarke -> Minson/Cox

    I would rater do option one, but my ruck stock is looking pretty dodgy with Clarke, Grundy and Nicolls. What do you reckon?

      why buy roughy when you can buy Goldy, Cox or Leuenberger? (Assuming that ppl have enough cash on hand.)

        People already have Cox, Goldy has an awful run home. Leuey’s an option, but Roughead is owned by more people so its the safe trade.

      Only thing i’ve seen is a few comments up about being worried about a late omission, but everybody has him so we’re all in the same boat. Have a good emergency, as we all should already.

    I was thinking of trading Kreuzer for Minson and Grimes for Hibberd/Ellis otherwise I can go Nicholls to Vardy/McBean and then Staker to a Roughead to cover Kreuzer??

    Hi guys I’m absolutely stumped this week, no Kruez & Nicholls means I’m forced to make a ruck trade, was going to go Grimes > L. Johnston and Mayes > Scooter/Griffen

    D: Godd Hepp Gibbs Enright Hibbo, McKenzie (Clisby Grimes)
    M: Swan Gaz Pendles Barlow Jack Cotch Douglas Titch (Mayes Grigg)
    R: Cox Kreuz (Nicholls Currie)
    F: SJ JimBob Dusty Rocky JJK Clokey (Rioli Oxley)
    CASH: 91k

    Have no ideas… thoughts greatly appreciated!

    Thanks :)

      a)Kreuzer – Minson
      Douglas – Griffen

      Loads up on a few Grand Final specialists. Miss out on playing rookie ruck, no money in bank.

      b)

      Nicholls – Grundy
      Douglas/Mayes – Griffen

      Feeling lucky starting Grundy? Leaves you with money next week.

      Off the top of my head.

          No problem. Option B could be about 50 pts less, with Minson facing a Kreuzless Cartlon.
