    When you set an alarm it’s turned on. When an alarm sounds it goes off. You’re welcome.

    DEF: Lloyd, Short, Ziebell, Cumming, Kozi, Burgess (Mansell, Gould)
    MID: Oliver, Mills, Merrett, Crouch, Taranto, Macrae, Mitchell, RCD (Bruhn, Downie)
    R: Gawn, Grundy (Hunter)
    F: Kelly, Zorko, Rowe, Poulter, Jones, Weightman (Ralphsmith, Brockman)
    U: Phillips
    Any thoughts for a useless team :)? Thinking of bringing in Hunter or Cripps for Powell and downgrading a red bench spot.. which they all are ha ha. I wanted to bring in Harmes/Byrnes (for Powell/Koz) but fall 1k short!

    Any chance of the Bont getting Fwd status? 11 goals 5 in the last 6 games

    Lloyd or Doch?

    • Aby Benny

      May 25, 2021 at 6:26 pm

      doch, playing wing now

  6. Aby Benny

    May 24, 2021 at 4:09 pm

    Wait doesn’t a smothered kick count as a kick stat?

    • Aby Benny

      May 24, 2021 at 4:10 pm

      and what about kicking off the ground?

  7. Lachlan Weeeni

    May 24, 2021 at 4:18 pm

    Sholl and Jiath out for either Docherty and Heeney or Rich and Newman/ Harmes
    Or
    Sholl and Phillips for either Docherty and Newman/Harmes or L Hunter/ P. Cripps and Sidebottom

    • Aby Benny

      May 25, 2021 at 6:28 pm

      Option 2, I’d rather hold jiath than phillips. Jiath could actually hit a 90, i can’t see phillips do that. Out of the defenders, dochertys obviously the best pick, and harmes probs is not as risky as newman. If you already have some good defenders, I’d go harms and sidebottom/cripps.

      • Aby Benny

        May 25, 2021 at 6:29 pm

        Actually the best option for the second option would be docherty and hunter if you can afford, since trelaors injury.

    May 24, 2021 at 4:42 pm

    Taylor adams or Brad Crouch? Leaning towards Crouch cause of his fixtures

    • Aby Benny

      May 24, 2021 at 8:51 pm

      adams, very underpriced and can average 110. Crouch plays bad if saints play bad, which they’ve been doing recently. Adams definitely.

    May 24, 2021 at 6:01 pm

    Lachie Hunter or Patrick Cripps???

    • JMD012

      May 24, 2021 at 10:38 pm

      This is literally the question I am asking myself. Ranked just outside top 100. Need to get it right.
      I am leaning towards Cripps just worried Hunter might be pushed to forward again even thought Treloar is out.
      My dilemma looks like this
      Cripps (Trade in) and then Waterman (on field)
      Hunter (Trade in) and then Byrnes (on field)
      Am not sure which combination will be most beneficial for the next 2 weeks especially because that is when Waterman will be traded out. Then beyond after the byes.

      • Big Bustling Balls

        May 25, 2021 at 1:04 am

        Byrnes and Hunter

      • Aby Benny

        May 25, 2021 at 6:26 pm

        i’d much rather field byrnes over waterman. And his js is safe after their horrific performance.

  10. Bill

    May 24, 2021 at 7:18 pm

    I had Brayshaw on the bench this week. If he’s back this week, I’m thinking of putting Duncan on the bench for the next two rounds and concentrate on other trades.

    Could bring in Dusty for Warner.

    What do you think?

    • Big Bustling Balls

      May 24, 2021 at 7:39 pm

      Yeah, do it! Although, I’m a no re Dusty, surely there’s better options?

      • Bill

        May 24, 2021 at 7:49 pm

        Cheers, Big Balls.

        Like who for the same price as unreliable Dusty? (I’m not a big fan of his either)

        • Big Bustling Balls

          May 24, 2021 at 9:47 pm

          If you could swing a midfield forwarder (in place of Warner), I really like the look of Tom Green (GWS). If not, maybe Lachie Hunter now that Treloar is out for a while

          • Bill

            May 24, 2021 at 10:57 pm

            Thanks!
            I like Hunter more than Green, but am just short of affording either of them.

            Back to the drawing board…
            Might have to do two downgrades this week instead.

    May 24, 2021 at 7:46 pm

    Who is the best option:
    Macrae + 163K
    Oliver + 203K
    Merrett + 239K
    Mitchell + 233K

    • dyn@mike

      May 24, 2021 at 7:52 pm

      Macrae. That being said, at this moment it’s best to check your structure for the bye rounds before making any trades.

      • Adrian

        May 24, 2021 at 9:59 pm

        Yep Jiath is going out for Byrnes and Treloar out for Macrae.

    • Bill

      May 24, 2021 at 8:25 pm

      Macrae by a mile.

      Merrett rates last in my book- doesn’t like a tag, even though I have both of them.

    • Aby Benny

      May 24, 2021 at 8:52 pm

      macrae must have, but look at byes and if one of the other ones gets you a better second player, consider them. Out of the rest I’d get oliver or mitchell.

  12. Blues

    May 24, 2021 at 8:04 pm

    Jiath to Poulter
    Powell to Lachie Hunter
    Thoughts?

    • Bill

      May 24, 2021 at 8:27 pm

      Sounds good, even though you may be unlikely to get that score from Poulter again.

    • Aby Benny

      May 24, 2021 at 8:53 pm

      poulter good js and cash gen, good moves.

      • Bec

        nice advice aswell

        • Bill

          May 24, 2021 at 11:32 pm

          Are we sure that’s a girl? They haven’t mentioned anything about feet yet.

          • Aby Benny

            May 25, 2021 at 6:30 pm

            haha

    I missed the Treloar bullet, but I did bring in Guthrie in, any1 know an injury update on his shoulder.
    I know he played the rest of the game, and was flying till his injury.

    And why r so many people worried about the RND 12 buy, its the first isnt that the easiest??

    from the girl who loves her feet slimed

    • JMD012

      May 24, 2021 at 11:27 pm

      Hey Bec! Seen you on here quite often, always like your insights.
      From what I have heard he will be fine. Looked a bit self conscious of the shoulder after he injured it. But I think he will be fine for next week.
      What do you think of Cripps and Waterman (on field) Versus Hunter and Byrnes (on field)

      • Jezza

        May 25, 2021 at 1:38 pm

        Hunter and Byrnes every day of the week!!

      • Bec

        May 25, 2021 at 7:47 pm

        thx you JMD012, I am a hack lol

        Thx u for the update on Guthrie.
        I have Waterman on my bench and am only getting Byrne this week :(
        which I will be fielding.
        Hunter should go better with Treloar out for 6-8 weeks, his CBA’s went up after he went off.
        So def Hunter and Byrne on field.

    What does everyone think?

    • Squid

      May 24, 2021 at 11:45 pm

      Hunter Byrnes for me but mate, if you’re ranked around the 100 mark I feel you should probably just keep doing whatever you feel is best because it’s clearly working so far.

      • JMD012

        May 24, 2021 at 11:48 pm

        Thankyou my friend.
        Always love the discussion, appreciate all thoughts and I like to give my own 2 cents worth as well haha.

    • Jezza

      May 25, 2021 at 1:39 pm

      Hunter and Byrnes every day of the week
      Although Cripps is picking up his game
      I don’t rate waterman at all in terms of fantasy

  15. Josh K

    May 24, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    1. McEvoy and Jordon to Gawn and Byrnes

    2. Rozee and Flynn R3 to L Hunter and Poulter.

    3. Flynn and Meek to Byrnes and Poulter.

    1 2 or 3

    • Aby Benny

      May 25, 2021 at 6:32 pm

      2 or 3 if you can get gawn the week after. I’d try to hold jordon until his byes, ulnless you have no other priorities in front of that. Hard choice.

  16. Cody

    May 24, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    laird, stewart, daniel, ridley, cumming, harmes (bergman, highmore)
    taranto, walsh, merret, brayshaw, treloar, jordon, sholl, byrnes (rcd, mead)
    grundy gawn (flynn)
    kelly, hind, phillips, kosi, jones, treacy (farrar, cahill)
    macrae
    Not sure what to do with this atm
    gonna go treloar ->hunter but im unsure of who to trade for poulter
    any thoughts?

    • Aby Benny

      May 25, 2021 at 6:34 pm

      damn thats a nice team, I’d try to offload farrar or bergman for cash, but if you have cash at the moment I’d delay that by a week and do something with the guys who are at max price like jones or kosi. Farrar should come back this week.

      • Bec

        May 25, 2021 at 7:50 pm

        I’m really sorry Aby for calling u a chick, hope I didnt offend u.

        …….looks like I’m back to being the only girl here
