    Newnes or Caleb daniel ?

    • Shags

      April 17, 2019 at 8:07 pm

      I like Newnes. Seems pretty consistent and is cheap.

      April 17, 2019 at 8:09 pm

      But I’m holding off on unique fwd pods. DPP changes are happening next week, and I’m expecting a couple of awesome fwd premo options to become available.

      I’m even thinking of a double downgrade this week so I can afford any gems.

    Been pushed back to the last page:

    Stuck for ideas this round. Any help appreciated!

    DEF: Laird, Lloyd, Witho, Williams, Scrimshaw, Duurs (Burgess, Wilkie)
    MID: MaCrae, Brayshaw, Conigs, Rocky, Libba, Walsh, Butters, Constable (Scott, Stack)
    RUC: Grawndy (Smith, Clarke)
    FWD: Worpel, Danger, Rozzee, Setters, Shultz, Drew (Parker, Balta)

    181k in the bank.

    Initial thoughts are betweem:
    Duurs/Burgess -> Hore (traded him out last week FFS)
    Scott -> Ross
    Balta -> a dirty sponge
    Setters -> possibly a premo

    • Shags

      April 17, 2019 at 8:10 pm

      Trade Scott (unless named) and Setters. Balta is a spud. But hes getting a game.
      Also a slight chance Balta gets ruck status next week. Might be able to slot him in as a r3.
      (I’m being super optimistic)

    Yeah. So I’m thinking this.

    Newnes and laird
    Billings and hurn?

    • Chief007

      April 17, 2019 at 6:33 pm

      First Laird will be a keeper ud think not sure on hurn by years end

      • Shags

        April 17, 2019 at 8:24 pm


        I also prefer newnes to billings. Newnes may be scoring less, but he seems consistent. Just waiting for billings to spud.

  4. Sammy B

    Who else is considering Caleb Daniel this week, For me it gets either Parker or Petruccelle off the ground with the opportunity to swing him back come the bye rnds or put him in the line with the weakest rookies coming through in the future. So my question is will he pick up def status next round and can he average 90-95 giving me a flexible F6-D6 come the end of the season?

    • Chief007

      April 17, 2019 at 6:28 pm

      I know he has had a role across the half back but I guess the question is will he continue to play that role, has a be of 67 so a bit of cash left in him if he keeps the scoring up, prob worth the punt especially if he gets the dpp

    • Shags

      April 17, 2019 at 8:14 pm

      I’m waiting till next week for that reason. Also likely some other dpp changes that could change everything.

      • Chief007

        April 17, 2019 at 9:31 pm

        Duncan in defence would be handy he’s pretty consistent

  5. Chief007

    April 17, 2019 at 6:23 pm

    Lloyd Milera Smith Williams duursma scrimshaw ( Clark, wilkie)

    Coniglio Cripps Rockliff sheed crouch Walsh Constable Atkins (stack, gibbons)

    Grundy Nankervis (o’brien Smith)

    Danger Boak Kelly Worpel Rozee drew ( Burgess Parker)
    Got 132 in the bank

    Gibbons to Ross
    Sheed to Libba with +234
    Sheed to Adams with +124
    Sheed to bont with +38

    Which one you think cheers in advance

  6. Ando1

    April 17, 2019 at 6:42 pm

    Newnes or Caleb daniel

      Refer to cripps comment above /\

      • Adam

        April 17, 2019 at 8:23 pm

        Sheed and Clark to Ross and Lloyd + $28k for n/w
        (Keep Setterfield on bench and trade next week)


        Sheed and Setterfield to Ross and Billings + $198 for n/w?

        I know I should have all Rooks playing but am tempted by a Gun half back playing Richmond this week.

          April 17, 2019 at 8:23 pm

          Sorry, replied to wrong section.

    You might be waiting awhile. Billing’s scores this year; 84, 94, 108, 124…

    Any thoughts on trades? Was sitting at 320 last week but blew out to the 2k’s.

    Need to generate some cash which is the theory behind this weeks trades, as my forward line really needs another premium. Cheers.

    Hey lads stuck with trades this week
    Thoughts appreciated Got 149k in bank

    Thoughts of going
    Mummy- Obrian
    Parker- Daniel or Newnes
    Clark- Lockhart

    Whitfield, Lloyd, Smith, Williams, Duursma, Clark( Scrimshaw, Hore)

    Macrae, Cripps, Mcrouch, Brayshaw, Bcrouch, Libba, Walsh, Constable(Stack, Atkins)

    Grundy, Mummy

    Danger, Kelly Worpel, Rozee, Drew, Parker(Petruccelle,Burgess)

    Hey everyone. Just like most other people this week, I have no idea what to do. Any help would be appreciated.

    DEF: Lloyd, Whitfield, Smith, Duursma, Scrimshaw, Hore (Collins, Burgess)
    MID: Coniglio, Cripps, Rocky, Brayshaw, B. Crouch, Libba, Walsh, Constable (Butters, Stack)
    RUC: Grundy, Gawn (Fort, Smith)
    FWD: Dangerfield, Worpel, Dunkley, Drew, Parker, Miers (Schultz, Petruccelle)

    $87,000 in the bank.

    I need to ditch Dunkley as he is just not good enough. So I was thinking of going Butters to J Ross and Dunkley to either Boak or Newnes.

    Is this my best option? As Shags has mentioned, it may be a good idea to wait on FWD’s because the new DPP’s are coming next round, but I really do need to ditch Dunkley I think.

      I wouldn’t trust Shags. He has WAY to much sex to ever focus on fantasy. The only fantasy he knows is the fantasy in the bedroom..

        All shags does is shags


    April 18, 2019 at 5:29 pm

    Who to get in for Smith?
    B Sheppard
    C Daniel (via Rozee DPP)
    T Stewart
    J Billings
    J Newnes
    R Marshall

    Set and forget


    Mini cash grab Gibbons> Ross

    • M8

      April 18, 2019 at 7:28 pm

      I’d go Williams to Laird as you can always go Gibbons to Hayes next week mate

  13. M8

    April 18, 2019 at 7:27 pm

    Which option do we reckon lads?
    1.) Clark to Hore and Setterfield to Newnes which leaves me $4k. I’m not sold on Newnes but it’s the best I can get to that way.
    2.) Williams to Hore and Setterfield to Heeney. Or go
    3.) Clark to Hore and Setterfield down to Baker for cash?
    Thoughts on what trades to do?

    DEF: Lloyd, Whitfield, Smith, Williams, Duursma, Scrimshaw (Clark, McInerney)
    MID: Macrae, Coniglio, Cripps, Rockliff, B.Crouch, Libba, Walsh, Constable (Stack, Gibbons)
    RUCK: Grundy, Witts (Flynn, Fort)
    FWD: Dangerfield, Kelly, Worpel, Setterfield, Drew, Parker (Burgess, Balta)

    Cash: $133k.
