    What $170k Defence rookies is everyone going with on the bench. That’s what I’m finding the hardest. Jones (Haw) Watson (West Coast) Marty Hore (Melb) Chris Burgess (GC)

      Sadly the rookies this year are very ordinary – only the midfield ones worth picking
      Jones and Watson are the picks but both were dropped after one JLT game
      Burgess is bench coverage only as he needs to kick snags to have any scoring potential
      You might need to spend extra $$$ to get to those who will play – Scrimshaw Cumming …..
      As TCW has a trademark on ‘Good Luck’ I’ll say all the best for the coming season?

      Yeah I’ve got J Clarke. But was more looking at $170k bench players

    Listening to these 2 guys talk was interesting. Why did neither guy say it has a lot to do with picking the right Capyain each week.
