    Anyone know the severity of Hunter Clark’s groin injury?

    • Killingholme Clay

      May 28, 2021 at 4:26 am

      It’s very swollen.

    Bianco or Weightman

    • Aby Benny

      May 28, 2021 at 11:19 am

      Bianco, save 100k and should score well unless bucks plays him fwd or something.

  5. Matteo

    have rucks – gawn, o’brien & flynn – should I trade o’brien for a cheap ruck, play flynn and upgrade heath chapman to callum mills……

    • Big Bustling

      May 28, 2021 at 8:18 am

      Yes. Traded out ROB for Darcy a couple of weeks ago and I sleep much better now

    • Aby Benny

      May 28, 2021 at 11:19 am

      yeah darcy or grundy only good trade options for o’brien.

  7. Lucas

    May 27, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    I feel Bianco is going to bein the fwd pocket as he’s replacing McCreery. Therefore the question should be; Is Binco going to be another spud who makes $100k and then clogs your bench, like Macrae, Henry and others. Poulter will be there and prob hit $500k. Can that be said of the others?

  9. Gawn to the dogs

    May 27, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    Hey Lads, love the podcast and you give some good tips on value but also set some good trends to avoid. *cough* Dusty.

    One comment, I really don’t like the addition of Sportsbet as a sponsor. I get it footy and betting go hand in hand but, adverts in your podcast doesn’t feel right to me.

    Just an opinion, but please consider it.

  10. Jezza Singleton

    May 28, 2021 at 5:04 am

    Trading out Treloar and Powell for Tom Green and Hall or I can get Titch and Dusty?

    • Aby Benny

      May 28, 2021 at 11:20 am

      Titch and dusty, dusty has good matchups coming up. Titch over hall.

      • JeZza

        May 28, 2021 at 1:43 pm

        Thanks aby benny

    May 28, 2021 at 8:30 am

    Dustys scores have been crap lately

  12. Anton

    May 28, 2021 at 1:13 pm

    Lads, need a R14 mid for treloar. Steele vs petracca?

    • Hugh Mungus-Peniz

      May 28, 2021 at 9:41 pm

      Steele for me

    • Aby Benny

      May 29, 2021 at 9:20 am

      Both can get 115 or 85. Tough call. Steele probs.

  13. The Fog

    May 28, 2021 at 1:13 pm

    Hey lads, Dusty + Cripps or Bailey Smith + Hunter

  14. Fie

    May 28, 2021 at 1:14 pm

    Hunter or Darcy

  15. Dangertroy

    May 28, 2021 at 2:36 pm

    Thanks for all the great tips legends. Have been back and forward pondering which way to go with Powell. Do I go down to Poulter and have 280k for next week, or up to Hunter and have exactly nothing left in the bank? I have a pretty good round 12 bye, with 16 players from my usual 22 on the field.

  16. Kate

    May 28, 2021 at 2:43 pm

    I’m copping a red dot this round (H. Jones.. who I need to get off the field admittedly) but I’m chasing a few medium to big fish this round, so can’t let lower-priced rookies go until next weekend. Oh well! Cheers guys for the poddy.

    • Bec

      May 28, 2021 at 6:28 pm

      thats sux Kate, hopefully those u bring in will cover the 40-50 Jones would have got

      Nice to see another girl on here :)

          May 28, 2021 at 8:23 pm

          lol us girls have too stick together

          but i bet u don’t like getting ur feet slimed like me lol

          from the girl who like her feet slimed

          • Charlie

            May 29, 2021 at 1:24 am

            You’re clearly not a girl. Most likely a teenage boy trying to be funny.

            • Bec

              May 29, 2021 at 11:14 am

              lol Charlie, not not a teenage boy a 20 something girl actually. :)

              …….and charlie, u r probably a 60 something man I’m guessing

              from the girl who loves her feet slimed

          • Kate

            May 29, 2021 at 9:27 pm

            No I don’t like that, in fact I’m quite confused by your feet sliming I won’t lie haha

  17. James

    May 28, 2021 at 3:50 pm

    Trading Bianco in for Brockman then upgrading treloar for a R14 mid…

    Oliver or
    Petracca with a bonus 60k.
    Or…any others?

  18. Bill Minson

    May 28, 2021 at 4:12 pm

    Cripps, B. Crouch or Hunter?

  19. Maddog

    May 28, 2021 at 5:12 pm

    Who scores higher this week, Phillips or McEvoy?
    Trading one out.

  20. Bec

    May 29, 2021 at 12:03 am

    who to field out of

    Kozi or Highmore

    from the girl who loves her feet slimed

    • Scott

      May 29, 2021 at 9:29 am

      Kozi. I’m fielding him hoping for a handful of goals against a weak Suns defence. Would be very happy with 60-70

      • Bec

        May 29, 2021 at 11:18 am

        yeah I was thinking that aswell Scott,

        but the Saints are playing the Roos, It’s the same, same isnt it lol.

        I’m trying to do a loop hole where I can see Highmore score, and put in Kosi if under 50
        but also keep Macrae VC as loop hole depends on players which are an emergency at the moment

        from the girl who loves her feet slimed

        • Dulcify

          May 29, 2021 at 1:35 pm

          Hi Bec, Finlay is the medical sub so maybe you should reconsider your choice of VC. Good luck.

          • Bec

            May 29, 2021 at 2:28 pm

            thx Dulcify went Sharp for C loop hole, so all good cheers

            from the girl who loves her feet slimed

  21. Ando the brain dead barfly

    May 29, 2021 at 6:41 am

    Please don’t be medical sub Tyler Brockman. I’ve held u this long to be useful for looping

  22. Mad Fish

    May 29, 2021 at 10:26 am

    Poulter or Byrnes (will be on ground)?

    • fod

      May 29, 2021 at 10:53 am

      Byrnes vs North i’d say.

  23. fod

    May 29, 2021 at 10:51 am

    Who to bench out of Poulter, Byrnes, RCD or Warner?

  24. Tim

    May 29, 2021 at 5:09 pm

    Should I take biancos bench score of 71 over RCD on field? Pending brockmans not medi sub

  25. Bec

    May 29, 2021 at 6:15 pm

    I’d be taking the 71 Tim.

    Yes RCD is playing the Crows, but 71 is a pretty good score,

    from the girl who loves her feet slimed

    • Tim

      May 29, 2021 at 6:33 pm

      Thanks bec I was thinking a 71 for a rookie is takeable

  26. Bec

    May 29, 2021 at 6:52 pm

    yep, glad I was here to help :)

    from the girl who loves her feet slimed

  27. Bec

    May 29, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    lol I saw your message Kate ,
    I love putting my feet in a bucket of bake beans or mud

    u should try it girl

    Did anyone watch the GWS game yesterday & know why Mummy got red vested.
    I’m still a crazy Flynn at R2 kind of guy, and was planning to trade him up to Gawn in Rd12, but now thinking of upgrading McEvoy instead, holding Flynn at R2, bringing in Reeves for Meek for ruck cover and riding my luck as far as it will take me…
    Question is how long Mummy will be out for, and what the Giants do with Pruess now he’s pretty much available (I think Briggs is out of the equation).

  29. fod

    May 30, 2021 at 11:37 am

    Mummy never got vested in the end, just looked like he did with Brown warming up. Mummy has bye this week so will probably play the following, as for Preuss, he had a nother set back, so I’d say they will continue with the Mummy, Flynn forward combo.

  30. Bill

    May 30, 2021 at 11:44 am

    I know his role has probably changed, but Ridley’s output has been ordinary since he came back from concussion. He’s worse than Short, and I’m thinking of pulling the plug on him.

  31. Bec

    May 30, 2021 at 2:01 pm

    hey blood brothers, I watched the game, Go Lions :), sorry for that plug.

    He did go off and commentators said he’s done for the day, and they also said Mummy was agueing with
    Cameron, that He (mummy) wanted to go back on.
    So not sure what was going on

    He did look like he had a little limp in the last few minutes.

    Wow Flynn was doing nothing till he went off, saved his BE and hopefully saved him from being dropped, Need him for the byes
