    Oliver and M Parker or Marshall and Sidey. With pendles out could sidey be an option as now under 600k

    • Greenwood

      Try to avoid Sidey if you can mate, old and slow and it seems like the game has gone past him.

      parker seems to have a good role with dusty out.

    Trade pendulbury for Marshall
    With second trade Stringer houston or armatey to a hunter or gaff

      I can get anyone under 693k trading Stringer

    The rumour was that Pendles was already carrying an injury. I wasn’t going to touch him this year.

    • Albo

      That may be true about him carrying an injury, but he wasn’t carrying a broken leg. That is why he isn’t playing again this year, not because of anything he may have been carrying.

        Only a matter of time before he went down with something- saved myself a trade… for once.

        Exactly what I was thanking

    Is Taranto forward role a problem

    Taranto for Touk or harmes for Whitfield

    • Greenwood

      July 26, 2021 at 10:19 pm

      harmes to whitfield, don’t do dumb trades mate

      • Ben

        July 27, 2021 at 8:06 am

        Taranto 21 disposals and 3 behinds, could have easily been another big game. Must keep.

    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)

    Thank you

    I took my captain off laird and put it on merrit at the last minute. I don’t deserve to play this game.

    • Justin Stitchup

      July 27, 2021 at 11:43 am

      I did something similar. Took the C off Lyons hoping to loop VC Hall but he didn’t do as well 3rd Qtr so put the C on Merrett.

    • JEZZA

      July 27, 2021 at 4:19 pm

      Why would you take the C off Laird if he scored 142, you deserve Merretts 64 for your stupidity :)

      • Kurt

        July 27, 2021 at 5:48 pm

        Oh yea stupid for not reading the future… next time he will go back in time and put the C back on Laird..
