      I’d love to trade Neale, if only I didn’t have to get rid of Houston Bolton or Ridley first hahah

      Really awesome team! Wish I was in a similar situation to you but I have a few stinkers still…

      I’m considering holding Sharp and Bramble for the final cash gen this week. I think they still have one more rounds worth of good scores…
      Was considering offloading Bramble but instead will offload HInd as they score pretty similar anyways.

      Going to bring in Howe for HInd and Honey for one of my non playing rooks this week and hopefully upgrade Sharp/ Bramble next week to a premo.

      Cheers :D

      Bianco + Bramble to Marshall / Sidebottom + rookie

    Lloyd, mills, Ridley,
    Laird, Bianco, Connolly
    ( Foley, Frederick )

    Steele, Mitchell,Oliver,
    Petracca, TT, Merrett,
    Macrae, West
    ( Honey, H.Sharp)

    Gawn, Grundy

    Hall, Kelly, danger,
    Hunter, Marshall, Degoey
    ( Briggs, Wilson)


    411k in the bank and
    I won my qualifying finals.
    I don’t know if I should upgrade
    a rookie this week or double
    downgrade for next week?

    • Stimpy

      August 1, 2021 at 11:31 pm

      If you have won your 1st final..def double downgrade ready for next week

    • The Cricket

      August 2, 2021 at 12:03 am

      For finals you really must have Emergency cover on every line, so focus on that imo. Then you can do whammo upgrades for your next final. Good luck

    Who goes first out of Phillips, Harmes, Cumming, Ridley and Haynes? I can only get a FWD for Phillips but any MID or DEF for the others

  6. Joe

    August 1, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    Houston to Crisp
    Sharp to Fiorini/Adams
    Bramble to Marshall/Sidebottom

    What is the best trade out of these? Thanks

    • Brian Smith

      August 1, 2021 at 11:49 pm

      I think the biggest difference in potential points for the rest of the season is Bramble to Marshall. I’m strongly considering that trade myself.

  7. Stimpy

    August 1, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    Hi everyone…Need some help..Any suggestions would be great just looking to win and progress in my league

    DEF Laird, Whit, Lloyd, Rich, Ridley, Bianco (Mansell,Walker)

    MIDS Mitchell, Walsh, Merrett, Macrae, Taranto, Oliver,Bramble (West,Connolly)

    RUCKS Gawn, Grundy( Meek)

    FWDS Hall, Zorko, Danger,DeGoey, Sidebottom, Parker (Jeka,Worrell)

    Utl Gould

    CASH $108

    Thinking Ridley and Bramble to trade

    • BzG

      August 2, 2021 at 11:52 am

      I’m moving on Taranto after successive games deep forward. Then, moving Parker to MID and trading in English to the FWD spot (also providing decent cover should Grundy or Gawn get injured).
      In your set-up, you could also sell Ridley, move Hall DEF and bring in J Kelly FWD

  8. Brian Smith

    August 1, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Agreed – those two look like your weakest on field, but if you’ve only got $108, it’s prob not enough to upgrade both. With Ridley v WBD next, maybe he has to go first – bring Marshall in and Hall to Def?

  9. Matt

    August 2, 2021 at 9:03 am

    Hey guys – desperately need to win my final this week and any help would be much appreciated!

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

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

    RUCK: Grundy, Gawn (Meek)

    FWD: Hall, Kelly, De Goey, Dangerfield, Smith, Parker (Amartey, Briggs)

    BANK: 0K

    • BzG

      August 2, 2021 at 11:58 am

      Trading out Taranto (changed role) and Houston would provide good cash to upgrade your MID line. You could consider a rook E as well for the FWDs, eg. Nash or Ruscoe

  10. The Kid

    August 2, 2021 at 10:12 am


    Bazlenka or o meara saves more cash

  11. Bill

    August 2, 2021 at 10:28 am

    Time for Taranto to go?

    Also, Richmond without Dusty are rudderless. They will be lucky to beat North.

    • BzG

      August 2, 2021 at 12:09 pm

      Imo, playing deep forward, YES

  12. Cody O'Brien

    August 2, 2021 at 10:57 am

    either trading out ridley cumming or neale. trading out ridley or cumming i can get to anyone 827k
    if i trade out neale i can get to anyone in the game apart from steele

    • Albo

      August 2, 2021 at 11:01 am

          gawn and marshall sorry^

    • Lewy

      August 2, 2021 at 11:29 am

      Hey team. Is there a decent target under $400k to play anywhere onfield? Yes, it’s desperate times!

  13. BzG

    August 2, 2021 at 12:07 pm

    FWDs: Nash & Ruscoe
    MIDs: Maybe Z Guthrie (D/M) but only 2 games of note
    DEFs: J Payne & J Peatling (D/M)

    • Lewy

      August 2, 2021 at 2:06 pm

      Thanks mate :)

  14. Mighty Puds

    August 2, 2021 at 12:38 pm

    Choosing to hold guys like Taranto, Neale, Ridley so I can move on Bianco and Bramble to a rookie and Marshall. Makes team better overall and with Hopper out Taranto should get more midfield clock.

  15. Jake

    August 2, 2021 at 1:17 pm

    O’Meara, Cerra, B. Smith or Gaff and why?

  16. David C

    August 2, 2021 at 1:34 pm

    Cerra getting more mid time with Fyfe gone for the season would be my pick of those. Wouldn’t touch any WC players at the moment. Dunkley might get more mid time over the next few weeks which might effect Smith.

  17. Jackkyy

    August 2, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    Need some assistance in choosing trades this week.
    Option 1 – Taranto + Sharp to Cerra and Side – 34k
    Option 2 – Weightman + Sharp to Peatling (on bench) and C Guthrie – 8k left

    Both leave just bramble on field, thanks.

  18. Robbo.

    August 3, 2021 at 3:51 pm


    I’ve the week off, just scraped in with the win last week.

    Option 1 – Sharp and Ridley to Touk and Peatling (on field) + 165K
    Option 2 – Sharp and West to Crisp and Peatling (bench) + 32K

    Def – Hall, Mills, Laird, Short ,Ridley, Lloyd (Frederick Walker)
    Mid – Macrae, Whitfield, Lyons, Oliver, Merrett, Titch Neale, Sharp (Honey, West)
    Ruck – Grundy Gawn (Ryan)
    Fwd – Zorko, Kelly, DeGoey, Ziebell, Stringer, Danger (Ginnivan, Macrae)
    Utl – (O’Connor)

    • MK

      August 4, 2021 at 11:10 am

      or bramble and taranto to marshal and any mid under 880

  21. Cam

    August 4, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    2 to go out of Taranto, Kelly, Bramble and Bianco

  22. Jay

    August 4, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    Elimination final – have 148k in bank before trades
    Team differences with mind on left and we both have Neale and Taranto

    Crisp vs Lloyd
    Houston vs Hill
    Keays vs Titch
    Hunter vs Wines
    Stephenson vs Harmes
    Sharp vs Bergman
    Marshall vs I Smith

    Was thinking Houston and Taranto out
    Options for in’s
    1) Whitfield and Cerra
    2) Dale and Oliver/ Fiorini
    3) Fiorini and Ryan
    4) Lyons and 554k def ??
    5) open to other in and out trades

  23. Den

    August 6, 2021 at 4:27 pm

    Which combo scores more:

    1. Hunter and Marshall
    2. S Darcy and Taranto

  24. Tony

    August 6, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    Imagine you got rid of Taranto this week

    • Creepy Brucey from ClownTown

      August 7, 2021 at 9:41 am

      I had Taranto traded out till Jelly was a late out so reverse traded luckily

  25. Ben

    August 7, 2021 at 12:52 am


    Kelly’s late out burnt me. Set my team, went to work and came back to that mess.

    Who’s my best option as emergency cover. I have
    Honey, F. Macrae, or Ginnivan?
