    Help lads-which choice of these 3? 2 rooks still on field (Ahern and Lienert) but not enough cashola to upgrade either this week…so:
    1-Up Stef to Grundy, dg bench rook
    2-Up E.Curnow to anyone, dg bench rook
    3-Double bench dg to bring bank up to around 250k

    In a top4 final in AF! Cheers!

      Don’t much like your options Shags, but I reckon the first sounds better. Whitfield’s a must-have and while it’s hard to predict rookies on debut Freeman could play a blinder (terrific recent form in vfl and has a point to prove)

    How much is McInerney hurting Martin’s score? At work and following on the app. Seems like Martin’s losing a lot like he did last season when Smith was rucking with him. had other fish to fry this weekend such as Taranto out, otherwise would have gone Martin to Grundy.

          Already got Kelly, Merrett and Macrae. I’m thinking of Oliver.
          Cripps goes so hard at the ball he’s likely to be injured, and Crouch has a couple of tough games coming up.

            Oliver was awesome in the first half today (over 100!), but swans, eagles, giants to come is tough as well. I wouldn’t say Cripps is “likely” to be injured and really like his draw (hence top spot), but I’ve had him since Rd 1. On reflection, I might put Crouch a bit lower (GWS away is a tough game) and get Oliver instead. Really hard to rank those 6.
