    Well, wasn’t sure who I would be trading out of Haynes, McEvoy and Kelly, looks like my hand will be forced anyway.
    Hunter has to go – who know what role Bevo will give him this week. Likely take him to Butters and then flick Whitfield to the midfield and move Kelly back to Lloyd if he is back from injury.

    First grand final awaits!

    Bramble to Kelly/Wingard
    Ridley to Crisp/Rich
    Crouch to Touk
    F Macrae to Butters/McStay

      Out of the options coming in, Kelly v CAR looks the most likely to score well. Kelly+Crouch is better than Touk+Bramble. But if FMac is still on field, he could give you a 40 and has to go first.

    Bramble to Dangerfield
    Sharp to Parish (vs Pies)

    • Brian Smith

      August 15, 2021 at 10:33 pm

      Danger has 3 game average of 102 (ignoring last week), while Parish’s is 96. Danger is v MEL rated as Easy for Mids. So I would prefer Danger over Parish. But Sharp is up against SYD so could struggle, Bramble may do better v RIC.

        Maybe Sharp to Dangerfield then?

    Do I keep Bramble/Sharp/Newcombe on field (one on field & one looped), and upgrade Taranto/Parish/Merrett to Steele/Touk.
    Or upgrade Bramble/Sharp/Newcombe to Lyons?

    Despite 4 goals and 91 points, I’ll be discarding Timmy Taranto for Tom Mitchell if TT is named at Full Forward again.

    I’m a bit stuck on what to do: I need to trade out stewart and bianco and I’ve got about 25k. Any suggestions?

    • Brian Smith

      August 16, 2021 at 4:08 pm

      POR def v WBD should be good. Maybe Byrne-Jones or Burton?

  10. Blood Brothers

    Hasn’t been my greatest season, and sitting just outside the top 5k.

    One last up-grade for the season. After down-grading Durham, I can pretty much afford anyone I want.

    The question being who to dump & up-grade, and on which line.

    Def: Hall, Laird, Lloyd, Whitfield, Cummings, Ridley
    Mid: Titch, Walsh, Merrett, Bont, Oliver, Adams, TT, Neale
    Rucks: Grundy & Gawn
    Fwd: Zorko, Kelly, De Goey, Sidebottom, Hunter, Bramble

    Even though Bramble is a rookie, I don’t think he’s my weakest link.

    Thinking either Ridley for Mills if he plays, or TT (I expect he’ll play forward again and no guarantee he’ll kick 4 goals again) to Touk (I fall just short of Steele).

    I don’t think there’s any Fwd’s that are worth burning my final up-grade on.

    Could love your opinions gang.

    • Brian Smith

      August 16, 2021 at 4:15 pm

      Who could hurt you with a low score? Hunter, TT (if FWD), Bramble could all go 70. Ridley/Cummings/Neale/Oliver should all be safe for more than that. One option is Hunter to Rich & Hall to FWDs, But if poss I would keep a FWD rookie to loop with Bramble.

    I got a big draft grand final decision to be made out of scrimshaw and vlastuin; I lost Stewart so one of these 2 are my replacement. Who’s the better go?

    My last Trade for the year was going to be to Trade out either Sharp for a top Midfielder but now seeing Newcombe has had scores over 100 more than once I’m thinking of bringing Newcombe onto ground as 8th Midfielder and upgrading Hunter to Titch so as I can have Titch as Captain last game. Is that a wise choose?

    Laird, Short, Cumming
    Harmes, Houston, Haynes (Federick, Bianco)

    Zorko, Merrett, McRae, Dangerfield
    Whitfield, Sidebottom, Treloar, Sharp (Newcombe, Scott)

    Grundy, Gawn (Meek)

    Hall. Darcy, Hunter
    Marshall, Wingard, Hind, (Ginnivan, Ford) MacRae

      Yeh do it!

  13. Brian Smith

    August 16, 2021 at 4:18 pm

    Yes, Sharp/Newc – if you can loop them, one of them will get at least a 90. If you can’t get Hunter to Lyons, Titch is next best.

  14. Thomas

    August 16, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    My Draft Team – Laird/Vlastuin/Scrimshaw
    The Big O
    Bench – Shuey/B.Smith/English/H.Young

    Last time GWS play Blues, Walsh scored 55 (tagged by De Boer). With more to play for, I think I might have to dropped Walsh which is crazy to think. Smith is scoring poor since Treloar & Dunkley being added and Enlish will suffer with Martins inclusion.


  15. The Kid

    August 17, 2021 at 10:08 am

    Which is better: sharp–>redden, bianco–>byrne jones/bailey/butters etc

    Anyone thinking of looping players like Taranto on Sat night.

    I have Bramble as a FWD emergency.

    My thought is that I put Taranto on the MID bench with an E. I have a non player (MID/FWD) who’s team (ESS) plays late in the round on field in the MID.

    If Taranto goes well, then happy days. If he puts up a 50 (likely playing forward), then swap someone like De Goey/Sidebottom into the MID for my non player and take Brambles E score (if decent).

    Honestly not sure if the above is really smart or really stupid.
