    Seeing we don’t have much time to think about our Trades I been thinking about what to do.
    94k in Bank
    Doch, Maynard, Crisp
    Houston. Noble, E-Smith (Starevich, Williams)

    Macrae, Titch, Coniglio, D Smith
    Wingard, Tucker, Pickett, Simpson (Bennell, McHenry)

    Grundy, Jacobs (Cameron)

    Patracca, Simpkin, B Smith
    Brayshaw, Taylor, Rankin (King, Buderick)


    I know I have a few POD’s but I just thought because of this funny year it may work, but its backfired a bit. If I could have some suggestions that would be appreciated.
    1. Out Stars,Tucker, D Smith
    In Ling/McPherson, Zorko, Whitfield (Providing Jacobs plays)

    2. Out Buderick, Stars, Tucker
    In Federick, McPherson, Zorko

    3. Out Stars, Tucker, Jacobs
    In Z Baily, Zorko, Witts

    4. Out D Smith, Tucker, Jacobs
    In Bailey, Whitfield, Witts

    To loop Bailey Williams without risk, you’d have to have at least one ruck left to swap him with. This week that would be Grundy for most, but if you have Gawn and Goldy, you’d have to lock Williams onto the ground on Saturday afternoon… Would suck to lose Goldy’s score (and a mega Gawn VC score perhaps) due to a late Williams inclusion.

    Im bloody hopeless my Trades for this week were going to be Baily for Maynard. Witts for Jacobs and Libba for Tucker but now I’ve just changed. I’m still bringing in Baily and Witts but now instead of Libba I’ll be bringing in either Constable or Steven. More than likely Steven if he is added to the team which leaves me with 59k
