      What is the go with McKernan for the saints. Surely he will get some of the ruck in the first few rounds. Will he hold his spot?

        Thank’s Goerge, but there are other ways to get BE’s. Only spend money if you have to

    I mentioned D Tyson last year and remember I got laughed at. Wonder where these people are now after seeing there new coach loves him and might play him in Rnd1

      Those people may still be laughing Dukx. 3 games in 2019 and zero last year. New coach might love him but as you say yourself “might” play him. You shouldn’t pay 410K for someone who might play

    Fair enough Goerge but I like the Player and cannot really understand why he doesn’t get more game time.

    Before I go any further George just check out the Kangaroos sight and see what the Coach has to say about Dom Tyson

    He was good at Melbourne.
    Tyson, Pittard, Polec and Aaron Hall were all fantasy relevant until they joined the Roos.
    Just sayin’

      I’m not disagreeing with you Goerge but I think with Noble comming on as Coach he may make the Roos play a different style and I think a couple of Nth players will be relevant this year

        He’s a good player, high draft pick for foundation giants I think but people were right to laugh the last couple of years because it doesn’t matter how good you are if you’re not getting picked. This year however I reckon he may be an option
