      Mitchell’s really consistent, always manages to get 90+ (got 89 this week) Boak’s last 5 scores are pretty good, and Steele’s another good option. If you wanna play it safe go Steele or Mitchell. Worpel’s also out of the side so Mitchell might get more of the ball.

    Hey team anyone have any idea when Brisbane and gold coast teams are released? I still have Witherden would like to hold him but not sure if he will play and running out of time to if I have to jump over to Haynes .

      September 8, 2020 at 11:06 am

      Bris v GC teams should be announced around 6.20pm AEST. Unless you hear an earlier update from say one of the Bris coaching staff re Witherden, you’ll have to make the Haynes trade before 5.40pm AEST.

    lol, I thought the exact same thing Andy, Dew has gotten slimmer this season but still doesn’t set a good example.
    what do peeps think about Doc for this week, calf strain is a worry

    Andy, you reckon vegemite, do u like vegemite or have u tried it yourself?

    from the foot fetish girl

    mmmmmmm feet in vegemite and anything else?

      September 10, 2020 at 12:05 am

      Didn’t know about Doc- might keep a trade spare, though was thinking of parting with Gaff. Prob. not now.
      I’m not a big fan of vegemite. Consider it would be better off on your feet,
