    Def – Led Mills Crisp Whit Lloyd Houston (Connolly Walker)
    Mid – Wines Titch Merrett TT Lyons Crae Bianco West (Newcombe Valente)
    Ruck – Grundy Gawn (Hunter)
    Fwd – Hall Jelly Danger Pendles Bolton Madden (Amartey Briggs)
    Utl – (Mead)

    Best trade out of the 2 or open for another suggestion

    1. pendles & newc to oliver & m parker
    2. pendles & amartey to marshall & schoenberg


  2. Troy

    July 25, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    Marshall in for Pendlebury and then either try and upgrade Haynes to anyone not Haynes, or downgrade amartey on the bench so that I have enough cash to take Haynes to Whitfield the following week. Will still leave me with either west or Finlay on the field.

  3. Jason

    July 25, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    Do I give Kennedy (Carlton) another week to do something or rage trade him out after just trading him in ?

    • Brian Smith

      July 25, 2021 at 11:29 pm

      Wait and see if McKay is playing. If Harry is back, Kennedy won’t have to run forward, so will be ok back in the mid. If Harry’s not back – dump Kennedy asap!

  4. Campbell

    July 25, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    Best midfield option under 691 k thinking gaff ?

    Def- hall, whit, ziebell, Lloyd, short, Daniel
    ( Bianco, madden )

    Mid- tourk, Merritt, parish, Taranto, Walsh, mccrea, sharp, west
    ( Newcombe, ginnivan )

    Rucks- Gawn, Grundy
    ( lynch)

    FWDS- Kelly, hunter, pendals, Zorko, danger, bramble
    ( tohill, Williams)

    Ult- meek

    Bank- 703k

    Need help on next moves? Obviously need to trade out pendals

    • Brian Smith

      July 26, 2021 at 1:29 am

      Pendles to Mills /Laird, Hall forward. Put the rest on West to get to a premium (Oliver). Bramble / Sharp good for another week.

      • Musca

        July 26, 2021 at 7:44 am

        Playing first final finished on top of league.

        1- Going pendals to laird and Newcombe leaves me with 753k for mid?

        2- pendals to mills and Newcombe leaves me with 811k for mid?

        3- pendals to crisp and Newcombe leaves me with 860k for a mid?

        4- pendals to laird/crisp/ mills then 170k rook for Steele or best mid next week?

        5- pendals to laird/crisp/ mills and madden to best fwd or def leaves 848k?

        Really stuck this week?

        • Cam

          July 27, 2021 at 7:38 am

          If 1 go with Fiorini, if 2 go for Oliver, if 3 Oliver/Petracca, don’t do 4, if 5 Laird and crisp/mills

          • Aby Benny

            July 27, 2021 at 12:39 pm

            1 looks good with fiorinis pod and scoring ability.

    • Musca

      July 28, 2021 at 8:10 am

      Thinking pendals and meek and move a few dpps around and go with laird and Marshall, then hopefully win first final and have the week off and do 4 downgrades and then upgrade my last 2 mids? Thoughts

    • Musca

      July 28, 2021 at 8:14 am

      So this week my only 2 playing rooks will be bramble and sharp at M5 and M6.

  7. Gavin

    July 25, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    Taranto full time fwd in today’s game?

  8. jeremy sharp

    July 25, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    DEF: Laird, Mills, Stewart, Rich, Daniel, Ridley (Walker, Bianco)
    MID: Wines, Merrett, Walsh, Taranto, Macrae, Oliver, Guthrie, Sharp (Rantall, Newcombe)
    RUC: Grundy, Gawn (Reeves)
    FWD: Hall, Danger, De Goat, Hunter, Kelly, Bramble (Briggs, Ginnivan)
    UTL Wilson
    Bank 12k

    unsure what to do, only focussing on league win

    • BzG

      July 26, 2021 at 3:23 pm

      Which players are you targeting?
      Will your POD players perform better than your league matchup opponent’s POD players?

      • jeremy sharp

        July 26, 2021 at 6:35 pm

        Uniques are currently Mills, Rich, Daniel, Ridley, Wines, Walsh, Guthrie, De Goey, Hunter V Lloyd, Dahlhaus, Ziebell, Petracca, Bowes, Titch, Haynes, Pendles*, Tim Kelly. Targeting Whitfield as unique for either Ridley or Daniel most likely.

        • BzG

          July 26, 2021 at 6:48 pm

          Whitfield is a solid choice. I’d prefer to keep Daniel over Ridley…. but I don’t have a crystal ball.

  9. Brian Smith

    July 26, 2021 at 1:31 am

    Cash out Newcombe / Bianco, ready for upgrading Sharp / Bramble next week?

    • Aby Benny

      July 26, 2021 at 1:59 pm

      you can hold sharp and bramble for another 2 weeks if it helps getting someone like haynes off the ground, and good cash gen as well. Depends on who else you have.

  10. Anthony

    July 26, 2021 at 1:32 am

    Laird Stewart Short (Bianco) 7k remaining
    Lloyd Rich Cumming (170k)

    Merrett Taranto Titch Bont N/A
    Mills Degoat Kelly Houston

    Grundy Gawn Treacy

    Kelly Hall Hunter
    Danger Zorko Bramble Ginnavan

    I’m thinking of doing a double downgrade this week, with treacy going to a 170k spud & Bianco going to either durham or clavarino, leaving me roughly 350k

    Or I could go much more on the attack, turn Houston into Parker (Rich) and Cumming to a Uber premo via mills, leaving only bramble and parker as ‘rookies’ onfield

    Let me know if you have any other ideas

  11. Paul

    July 26, 2021 at 4:06 am

    Best def to bring in from Crisp, Mills or Whitfield?

  12. James

    July 26, 2021 at 8:09 am

    Best trade.

    1. Crouch to Guthrie
    2. Boak to Fiorini?

    • Aby Benny

      July 26, 2021 at 9:06 am


  13. Harmes

    July 26, 2021 at 8:14 am

    Sidebottom or Marshall?

    • Dave

      July 26, 2021 at 8:27 am

      Pendles inured and Adams hurt atm so Sidebottom will be having a few more CBA’s

  14. Dave

    July 26, 2021 at 8:26 am

    Hey guys – Does anyone have any early trade suggestions? would be much appreciated!

    DEF: Laird, Mills, Stewart, Daniel, Bowes, Haynes (Connolly, Walker)

    MID: Steele, Wines, Merrett, Lyons, Macrae, Taranto, Houston, Bianco (West, O’Connor)

    RUCK: Grundy, Gawn (Meek)

    FWD: Hall, Kelly, Dangerfield, De Goat, Smith, Poulter (Amartey, Briggs)

    Bank: 24K

    • Brian Smith

      July 26, 2021 at 8:32 pm

      Poulter & Haynes seem to be your biggest issues. Does trading out Amartey get enough cash to get either of those up to a decent player? eg Rich/Tuohy from Haynes?

      • Brian Smith

        July 26, 2021 at 8:33 pm

        Or maybe Bianco to Parker (RIC)?

  15. Aby Benny

    July 26, 2021 at 9:06 am

    Fiorini or oliver? save cash and ownership

    • The Kid

      July 26, 2021 at 9:11 am

      Fiorini as POD

    • Paul

      July 26, 2021 at 11:43 am

      Fiorini for points, cash and POD

      • Aby Benny

        July 26, 2021 at 1:59 pm


    • AJ

      July 27, 2021 at 4:48 pm

      Fiorini would be my choice….

  16. The Kid

    July 26, 2021 at 9:14 am

    Hold or trade Matt Kennedy?

    • Dave

      July 26, 2021 at 9:16 am

      hold unless you have nothing else to fix

    • Albo

      July 26, 2021 at 12:54 pm

      Your team must be killer if Kennedy is your biggest problem.

    • Aby Benny

      July 26, 2021 at 2:00 pm

      mackai was out so if he comes bcak this week kennedy should be fine. Played oto m uch forward this week thats all

      • The Kid

        July 26, 2021 at 7:39 pm

        ok good to know

  17. DRP

    July 26, 2021 at 10:10 am

    Pendles & Robertson to
    Marshall & M Parker

    • Aby Benny

      July 26, 2021 at 2:00 pm

      nice, parker looks to have a good role, and cheap.

  18. Carts

    July 26, 2021 at 10:23 am

    DEF: Laird, Lloyd, Tuohy, Cumming, Houston, Bowes (Bianco, Briggs)
    MID: Wines, Mitchell, Walsh, Taranto, Neale, B.Smith, Cripps, Sharp (Rowell, H.Sharp)
    RUC: Grundy, Gawn (Treacy)
    FWD: Hall, Zorko, Kelly, Hunter, Pendlebury, Kennedy (Xerri, D.Williams)
    UTL: E.Smith

    Cash: $23k

    So far going Pendles > Sidebottom & Kennedy > Marshall

    The only other option i’m looking at is keeping Kennedy and trading Cripps. Thoughts?

  19. Lec

    July 26, 2021 at 10:55 am

    Haynes to Whitfield or Fiorini?
    If I don’t get Whitfield this week I will get him next week

    • Aby Benny

      July 26, 2021 at 2:05 pm

      yeah doing the same fiorini first (low BE) and whitfield next. Whitfield should stay around that price shouldn’t go up much next week.

  20. Cody

    July 26, 2021 at 11:15 am

    can either go
    1. bramble->clavarino, amartey->marshall (no rooks left on field)
    2. Bramble ->Clavarino Harmes->Macrae (or someone cheaper)
    3.Reeves->fullarton Harmes->cerra/thomas/serong(let bramble gen more cash)

    • Aby Benny

      July 26, 2021 at 2:06 pm

      1 gets a rook off. 2 is a more aggressive play but any of those 2 are good. But id go 1 gets amartey out

  21. Joe

    July 26, 2021 at 11:43 am

    Get Dangerfield or Grundy?

    • ozzie

      July 26, 2021 at 2:20 pm

      Dangerfield with Selwood out

  22. Jacko

    July 26, 2021 at 12:50 pm

    1. Oliver and Marshall
    2. Fiorini and Marshall
    3. Gaff and Stewart

    • Aby Benny

      July 26, 2021 at 2:07 pm

      2 pod

    July 26, 2021 at 1:37 pm

    DEF: Laird, Hall, Whit, Short, Newman, Ridley (Bianco, conolly)
    MID: Mitchell, TT, Macrae, Zerett, Brouch, Oliver, Kelly, Serong (West, Newcombe)
    RUCK: Gawn, ROB (Meek)
    FWD: Kelly, Danger, degoat, pendles, hunter, bramble (Macrae, briggs)

    • Brian Smith

      July 27, 2021 at 4:06 pm

      Cash out Bianco, Pendles to Zorko

  24. Oscar Pino

    Houston to who
    Have 680k any position

    • Aby Benny

      July 26, 2021 at 2:07 pm

      hunter, rich, gaff, marshall good options

  25. Bill

    July 26, 2021 at 2:15 pm

    Weightman: to Dunkley, Hall, or Stephenson ($194 cash left)?

    • Bill

      July 26, 2021 at 2:23 pm

      Alternatively, I could switch Kelly to fwds, and bring in either: Lyons, Bont, Petracca, or Oliver?

      • Brian Smith

        July 26, 2021 at 8:37 pm

        Any one of these 4 mids is better than your fwd options, so pick the best mid from here according to POD/run home.

      • AJ

        July 27, 2021 at 2:38 pm

        Have you considered Fiorini….

    • ozzie

      July 26, 2021 at 2:24 pm

      Hall safe tonne for the rest of year, Dunkley can be very good or turn to crap. Probs avoid stepho

  26. Josh

    July 26, 2021 at 2:21 pm

    trade Haynes to Fiorini and hold Poulter + Bianco


    Trade Either Poulter or Bianco and hold Haynes

    • Brian Smith

      July 26, 2021 at 8:38 pm

      Assuming you trade the other one next round, trade out the one with the highest be – Haynes or Poulter,, Bianco seems ok for another round.

  27. Hugh

    July 26, 2021 at 6:59 pm

    Taranto for Touk or Whitfield for harmes and Marshall for pendles or Pendleton for Darcy and toranto for Guthrie

    Will Taranto bounce back after his forward role this week

  28. Stan

    July 26, 2021 at 7:53 pm

    Which option is better ?

    1. Pendles and Harmes to Clayton and Finlay Macrae ( save 170k for next week)
    2. Pendles and Harmes to Whitfield and Bramble ( save 45k for next week)
    3. Pendles and Harmes to Touk and Finlay Macrae ( leaves me with almost no cash)
    Thank you

    • AJ

      July 27, 2021 at 4:44 pm

      I like option 2 but have you considered Fiorini….

  29. AJ

    July 27, 2021 at 2:34 pm

    Hi All

    Currently playing Amartey as R2 and wondering whether to go:
    1 Leave Amartey (no back up) trade Alec Waterman & James Rowe to Matt Parker & Dunkley / Fiorini
    2 Trade Waterman move Amartey to Fwd pickup Reeves and then Rowe to Dunkley / Fiorini

    Need to win

    Thank you

    • Albo

      Bianco stands out as a massive red flag, you need to move him to the bench and get a premo in his spot.

    July 27, 2021 at 6:17 pm


    • Josh

      July 30, 2021 at 8:10 am

      Whitfield for consistency – Fiorini for massive POD

  32. Phil

    Miller or Steele

  33. Stimpy

    July 30, 2021 at 3:47 pm

    Hi all, any help would be appreciated. Dunno which 2 to trade, especially with Sharp going so well.

    Def – Hall, Mills, Laird, Short ,Ridley, Lloyd (Frederick Walker)
    Mid – Macrae, Taranto, Lyons, Oliver, Merrett, Titch Neale, Sharp (O’Connor, West)
    Ruck – Grundy Gawn (Ryan)

    Utl – (Briggs)

    + 68K


    • Robbo.

      July 30, 2021 at 3:53 pm

      Maybe: Taranto to Whitfield and Briggs to Honey = 236K for next week?

  36. Stimpy

    July 31, 2021 at 7:26 pm

    Mitchell or Gawn as Captain

  37. Cooper

    August 1, 2021 at 7:01 am
