    My current trades = Gawn to McEvoy and Rowell to Walsh, leaving me some cash for a splash next round, most likely targeting Z. Williams and dealing with an under-performing Rookie like Meek (unless there’s more forced trades thrusted upon us…

    Current team:
    DEF – Llyod, Laird, Stewart, Clark, Fantasia, Young (Highmore & Koschitzke)
    MIDS – Merrett, Mitchell, Bontempelli, Walsh, Taranto, Powell, Gulden, Bruhn (Jordan & Brockman)
    RUCKS – McEvoy, Flynn (Meek & Hunter as Utility)
    FWS – Dunkley, Phillips, Caldwell, Campbell, Rowe, Warner (Jones & Bergman)

    Is the rolling lockout all weekend?

    With the Rolling Lockouts if the VC score is good do you have to select a captain. If the C is not put on a player will the VC score double. Thoughts ?

      The C has to be on a non playing player to get VC loophole score.

        It’s impossible NOT to put the C on someone.
        So to use the loophole put a non-playing player on the field with the C, and make sure you have a playing player on the bench as an Emergency (in the same position).
        The VC’s score will count over the non-playing C player.
        And the Emergency player’s score will count over the non-playing player’s zero.
        To be clear there’s an order of events here – you need to select you VC player to try their score before your non-player or alternative (real C option) is locked out.
        If you want to keep the VC score do as I’ve explained above, but if you’re not happy with it, put the C on your preferred option (on-field).
        But don’t let the rolling lock-outs snooker you with players locked in positions you didn’t intend them to be .

          Who would have thought the loophole was so difficult to explain simply & succinctly until you try to do it yourself! haha

            Yeah you get used to it though haha. Hey mate, do you know if rolling lockout goes for the whole weekend so you can sub players in and out?

              Yep, rolling lockouts as games start.
              Once a game starts all players from those clubs are locked out

    You have to deal with Danger & Rowell, of course
    I think deciding who to trade Danger for first, maybe Dusty or Dunkley, or even Stephenson (if want more cash and happy to have another mid-pricer in your forward line), will give you the budget to then decide who you can up-grade Rowell to. A premo like Titch that looks ready to explode?
    Then next week you can focus on getting Laird into the backline and bolster that line.

    Thanks for the comments on C and VC. Have to trade in a non playing player onto the Bench.

      NO!! You don’t want to be doing that!
      You want as many players playing, improving their scores & averages, increasing their value & generating cash growth for you to use in future trades!
      Having no non-playing players is a far better option than the hypothetically or potential better VC score.
      Don’t worry, you’ll soon have non-playing guys on your team and will be able to use the loophole in future rounds. (In fact, that’s going to become our future head-ache – no need to accelerate in by trading in a non playing player)

        Agreed, don’t trade in a non-player deliberately!
        But if you happen to have one ( by accident!) who’s definitely not playing this round, and you don’t absolutely need to get rid of him this round (cos you’ve other issues to deal with) – THEN you could use him for a non-playing-captain this round

    DEF: R. Laird, T. Stewart, J. Short, C. Daniels, O. Markov, H. Young (T. Highmore & J. Koschitzke)
    MID: Z. Merrett, J. Macrae, A. Brayshaw, T. Taranto, M. Rowell, J. Clark, W. Drew, T. Powell (E. Gulden & A. Scott)

    Thinking M. Rowell to J. Jordon and then J. De Goey to J. Stephenson or should I look to bring in J. Rowe?

    March 25, 2021 at 1:40 pm

    First trade Rowell to Macrae

    Should my second trade be DeGoey into Stephenson?
    Or because that will be locked after first game, do I wait and fix a rook like meek, or if someone isn’t named?

    Didn’t do too well in the first round. Premos failed me and fielded the wrong rookies.
    Score: 1728
    Rank: 32,985

    Thoughts on this team and trades? I should bounce back in Rd2, surely?

    IN – Oleg Markov, Zach Merrett
    OUT – Matt Rowell, Patrick Dangerfield
    Remaining Salary: $46k

    DEF: Lloyd, Laird, Doch, Howe, Markov, Young [Highmore, Koschitzke]
    MID: Neale, Zezz (VC), Serong, Sloane, J.Clark, Powell, Gulden, Jordon [Berry, McNeil]
    RUC: Gawn, Flynn [Meek]
    FWD: Dusty, Phillips, Stephenson, Dow, Rowe, H.Jones [Campbell, A.Scott]
    UTL: [Brockman]

    Best in luck ahead of Round 2, guys!

    Def: Laird Short Clark Young Highmore Sharp (Koschitzke Briggs)
    Mid: Neale Pendlebury Taranto Sloane Caldwell Gulden Campbell Jordan (Powell Bruhn)
    Ruck: Grundy Gawn (Flynn)
    Fwd: Stephenson Philips Dow Hind Warner Rowe (Scott Brockman)
    Utility: Cox (Bombers)

    I made two very ordinary trades ahead of Rd 2 of Danger to Stephenson and Daicos to Caldwell. I need to fix that.
    Rd 3 trades I’m considering Caldwell to Dusty to correct that move. Also thinking Bruhn out and either Markov or Fantasia in to boost defence. Also considering Howe (Hawks).
    Any other decent and reasonable thoughts and suggestions?
