      3. Cos Simpson has a pretty tough run home and Clark has fairly easy run home. Surely you got other options too though?

    GWS have got there Midfield back (Kelly and De Boer) I would be bringing in Simpson. Houli has got the Lion’s in the last Round.

    I’m trading Marshall out of my Rucks but that’s only to get Gawn in so as he can be my Captain. As Calvin said Gawn will go big tonight and then next week I’ll be bringing Marshall back in as he will be Rucking against the Swans and I’ll probably trade out Green with the GWS Mids back

    Cripps and bench cover



    I’m either trading Cripps to Merrett which will leave me with no bench cover or just leave Cripps and trade Snelling to Noble for an emergency.

    Very unsure.

    Hey Lads,
    Would love your opinion for the captain in my ultimate footy draft, my three captain options.

    A) Oliver with a potential Hewett tag
    B) Brad Crouch against Collingwood
    C) Tim Taranto to bounce back with Josh Kelly back in

    Hey legends. Been away for a bit, need some help. Currently lowest players are:

    D: B.Smith, T.Stewart
    M: Yeo Rocky Cripps
    F: Telly Ziebell

    Have Zac Clarke/Hanrahan to cull this week and next for coin to go up/down. Who should go this week? Opponent has Greene and Macrae as uniques but I feel OK against the rest. Early this week was thinking Ziebell > Greene but dont know whether that is still strong with GWS mids back (Toby still named on ball though?). Other thought is maybe Ziebell to Rowan Marshall/Jack Billings, leaning Marshall for 2 easier ruck games (Carlton then Sydney).

      No news on Toranto. He is still enough life legend. Tim TARANTO is either a late out or Roy from the traders is being an absolute dickhead for starting a rumour with zero substance.

          Good to see the Gabba filled up! Lions supporters have been ‘fair weather’ fans for far too long – low numbers going to the games and those that do being piss-poor at cheering their players on (imho)

    Still uncertain with a couple of games to come, but Laird might just lose me my prelim. After a terrific junk-time performance that got me over the line in my semi last week, despite a Dusty Donut, the tide turned and he’s let me down.
    Gotta love footy hey!!!

    Just like to chuck in a formal protest at a missed Witt’s hit out in the dying stages after a fantasy prelim loss by 1 point. Gutted.
