      Hutchings takes sloane surely so Cripps. I got Cripps in this week as bench cover for Zorko myself. I feel like it has been easy to make cash this year, never had complete team and premo bench cover by now, had full premo team from just after byes, been sideways upgrading and making cash since.

    Duursma or Sicily UP TO one of Crisp/Williams/Houli? Conditions a factor.

    Not sure of Duursma in the wet and Sicily is capable but probably will just punce around again without tackling nor getting near the ball…

    I feel I get this trade wrong and I loose my Prelim final…Ahhhh

      Port have something to play for, Hawthorn do not. Plus SicDog shouldn’t be taking many marks given conditions tonight. Get rid of SicDog.

    Dusty’s a late out.

    Fantasy lessons learnt #3,157 – don’t go into a final without Emergency cover (especially in a line where you have a unique player).

    Done and Dusted, pun intended!

      Clever play on words “The Cricket”. Emergency for Dusty (31 points) is better than a donut.

        Sure is. Stupid of me to put myself in this position. My oppo’s an old hand at this caper and he’s probably laughing his head off at my rookie mistake lol

    Rischetelli left the Lions at the time of the ‘Fevola Debacle’….probably pushed.
    Hanley left because of [can’t remember the jargon] something like defeat fatigue[read shell shock]….
    talk about outta the fry pan.
    Both at the Suns and neither would have got a game in Lions 2019 line-up.

      Rischetelli left because he was pissed off with Vossy offering him up in a trade. Just after he won a B&F too.

    I’ve generally mucked up my captains this year.

    Rory Laird, you bloody champion! Just won my semi thanks to his awesome pigging performance in the last quarter. He was the only unique player left in my matchup and he came through. Legend.
    Can’t believe I made it despite a Dusty Donut with no emergency cover lol

      Well done Cricket. Laird & Crouch got me over the line too. Shuey & Gaff went OK
