Cash Cows

Fry’s Cash Cows – Rd. 5

Fry looks at the must-have rookies as coaches look to nail their cash cow picks following Round 4.

Four down, 19 to go!

There are a lot of coaches who need a pick-me-up this week. From benching the likes of O’Driscoll and Rachele, to some offloading Max Gawn and of course, Captain Cripps going down, Round 3 gave us a reminder of how things can quickly turn pear-shaped for fantasy coaches. With multiple suspension and injury issues swirling around the league, it’s still important to make sure you invest in the right rookies so you have cash to help you when these problems surface.

If you missed out on my AAMI Series cash cow watchlist be sure to check it out here.

Rookie/cash cows picks are players who start the season at $350,000 or lower


Power Ranking Cash Cows – Round 4

After four weeks of action, these are the top-10 cash cow performers in season 2022!

Cash Cow King – Round 4

HUGE scores were back on full display from the rookies in Round 4, with Jason Horne-Francis (94) coming oh so close to the first triple-figure outing of his fantasy career. The fun didn’t stop there with another Nick Daicos (126) masterclass, followed by Nathan O’Driscoll’s (109) coming out party on Saturday night. Josh Rachele (101) finished the show with his heroics against the Bombers, although my vote is going to JHF for his eye-catching performance.

Who's gets your vote as the Cash Cow King for Round 4?

Round 5 Rookie Rankings

DEFENCE

Do we finally have a safe defensive rookie we can play on the field?! Nathan O’Driscoll ($275K, 109, BE -32) is coming off the game of his life against the Giants, erupting for 20 touches and two goals while virtually doubling every other DEF cash cow score. There were previous concerns over NOD’s job security, but if you have to play a rook in your backline, O’Driscoll is the one I’d recommend. Keeping those rookies on our bench would help coaches sleep easier with the likes of Josh Gibcus ($294K, 42, BE 30) and/or Paddy McCartin ($359K, 36, BE 41) still clogging up a roster spot down back for a big chunk of coaches. McCartin in particular is feeling the wrath right now, currently being flicked out by over 8,000 coaches.

Some teams won’t have the luxury to chop out the underperforming cash cows in their backline yet, and the impending arrival of Nick Daicos should make things easier. Those who invested in Nasiah Wanganeen-Milera ($330K, 68, BE 14) could have done worse as the Saints young gun starts to find his feet at AFL level, with more injuries at Port opening the door for a potential Sam Skinner ($208K, DNP, BE 16) return. It’s slim pickings once again outside of the top handful, so if you’re still eyeballing a pair of rookies on your field in defence, I’d make ditching them a priority.

Top-5

  1. Nathan O’Driscoll (Dockers)
  2. Nasiah Wanganeen-Milera (Saints)
  3. Paddy McCartin (Swans)
  4. Sam Skinner (Power)*
  5. Josh Gibcus (Tigers)

* if named

Some may argue that Tom Wilson ($293K, 69, BE 11) deserves to be higher up after his 16 touches on the weekend, but let’s wait and see him replicate it first. Jordan Boyd ($217K, 41, BE 10) and Ben Miller ($203K, 39, BE 14) came into their respective sides only to remain fantasy irrelevant with Jake Stein ($229K, 25, BE 15) disappointing a few coaches who pounced on the GWS defender. Joel Smith ($289K, DNP, BE 14) remains on the outs at Melbourne and Sam De Koning ($204K, 35, BE 15) should make some $$$ moving forward, but first-year Power backman Josh Sinn ($270K, DNP, BE 32) is facing a 3-4 week stint on the sidelines with a groin complaint.

Darcy Wilmot ($260K, DNP, BE 34) may be our saviour down back if he maintains his VFL form, scoring 81 points from 20 touches last weekend. He’s not the only one stringing together solid performances with forgotten Swans backman Will Gould ($190K, DNP, BE 25) finding plenty of the footy with 18 touches (17 kicks) and 80 points. 2021 draftee Garrett McDonagh ($192K, DNP, BE 25) was Essendon’s leading possession winner vs. Frankston, gathering 23 touches for his 91 points to keep himself in the selection frame.

Best of the Rest

These players may or may not be in the selection mix this week, but be sure to keep them on your 2022 watchlist in case they burst onto the scene. In no particular order:
Darcy Wilmot (Lions, $260K)
Josh Fahey (Giants, $208K)
Isaac Chugg (Magpies, $190K)
Rory Thompson (Suns, $190K)
Garrett McDonagh (Bombers, $192K)
Bodhi Uwland (Suns, $190K)

MIDFIELD

By this time next week, our top-2 midfielder cash cows will hopefully be the proud owners of a second position, although there’s no certainty that happens. It seems like Nick Daicos ($545K, 126, BE -2) will get the nod with DEF status, making for a handy addition to our backlines following his game-high 126 points on the weekend. However, Jason Horne-Francis ($455K, 94, BE 10) may shoot himself in the foot if he keeps playing so well. His percentage of CBA’s have increased every week and you can’t blame North for trying to get him closer to the footy with the first-year Roo leading the team in clearances vs. Sydney.

Sitting just behind the two rookie mainstays you can find No. 10 overall pick Neil Erasmus ($333K, 68, BE 5), who played his way into a spot with his second consecutive decent score. Scores in the high 60’s aren’t going to turn too many heads, but Erasmus has made the most of the chance Freo handed him, making it tougher for them to replace him when their list is healthy. The same can’t be said for Josh Ward ($381K, 27, BE 40) who is no certainty to line up for Hawthorn on Easter Monday following another dud score and just 9 touches. Jackson Mead ($280K, 57, BE 4) held onto his spot in the MID rankings after another decent score against the Dees, which should see him continue to chug along as a serviceable cash cow.

Top-5

  1. Nick Daicos (Magpies)
  2. Jason Horne-Francis (Kangaroos)
  3. Neil Erasmus (Dockers)
  4. Josh Ward (Hawks) 
  5. Jackson Mead (Power)

The biggest slide came from Connor MacDonald ($346K, 25, BE 34) who, like his rookie peer Ward, could be rested from the senior side over the weekend. We were treated to another debutant in Marcus Windhager ($218K, 54, BE 6) with the young Saint bound to generate interest if he holds his spot along with the likes of Brady Hough ($273K, 51, BE 16), Jed McEntee ($227K, 36, BE 10) and/or Reef McInnes ($228K, 19, BE 17). McInnes especially flopped for a healthy portion of coaches, but as long as these players clogging up a bench spot keep playing and rising in value, they can stay.

There weren’t too many noteworthy performers at the state league level with Cooper Stephens ($190K, DNP, BE 25) gathering 26 touches for 91 points and Finn Callaghan ($286K, DNP, BE 37) scoring 84 from his 17 disposals and a goal. Tyler Sonsie ($236K, DNP, BE 31) could be in line for a debut soon at Richmond after another solid outing with 77 points fuelled by 17 disposals and Ben Hobbs ($266K, DNP, BE 35) was held out VFL action last weekend and may be announced as a debutant by the time you’re reading this, or if not, in the ensuing weeks *cough*Anzac Day*cough*.

 Best of the Rest

These players may or may not be in the selection mix this week, but be sure to keep them on your 2022 watchlist in case they burst onto the scene. In no particular order:
Greg Clark (Eagles, $190K)
Arlo Draper (Magpies, $202K)
Matty Roberts (Swans, $224K)
Matthew Johnson (Dockers, $250K)
James Tsitas (Suns, $190K)
Robbie McComb (Bulldogs, $190K)
Josh Goater (Kangaroos, $248K)
Finn Callaghan (Giants, $286K)
Hugh Jackson (Power, $190K)
Tom Joyce (Eagles, $190K)

RUCK

We could soon be spoilt for choice in the rookie ruck department with suspension and injury setting the scene for a trio of cash cows to matter. Most notably, the absence of Paddy Ryder for St Kilda means Jack Hayes ($394K, DNP, BE 10) should slot back into the rotation to keep his price ticking upwards and the performance of Hugh Dixon ($278K, 75, BE -12) will give West Coast fans encouragement after another reported Nic Nat knee issue. Dixon scored a career-best 75 thanks to his ability to fill up the box score and he could loom as a trustworthy R3; much like Sam Hayes ($190K, DNP, BE 25) who may get his chance in Round 4 if Scott Lycett’s shoulder is still an issue. Hayes compiled 32 hitouts and a goal for his score of 91 last week in the SANFL and his debut would come at a near ideal time for fantasy coaches.

Top-5

  1. Jack Hayes (Saints)*
  2. Hugh Dixon (Eagles) 
  3. Sam Hayes (Power)*

*if named

Best of the Rest

These players may or may not be in the selection mix this week, but be sure to keep them on your 2022 watchlist in case they burst onto the scene. In no particular order:
Paul Tsapatolis (Cats, $190K)
Jacob Edwards (Kangaroos, $190K)
Luke Strnadica (Eagles, $190K)
Mac Andrew (Suns, $282K)
Max Heath (Saints, $190K)
Alex Mirkov (Blues, $190K)

FORWARD

While a lot of credit is being given to the MID rookies for their hot start, there are a few FWD’s performing just as well. One month into Josh Rachele’s ($467K, 101, BE 19) career the Adelaide phenom has 10 goals and two fantasy 100’s on his resume, with another huge score coming against the Bombers. He’s already shaping up as a cult hero for the Crows and fantasy coaches will join the bandwagon if he keeps scoring at this rate. In that same contest, Nic Martin ($422K, 73, BE -7) maintained his hot start thanks to 22 disposals; proving that we can hold onto this pair for at least the next few rounds and play them without too many worries.

Tristan Xerri ($457K, 59, BE 26) was unlucky to not be mentioned above with the top forward cash cows, although his first score under 60 is a sore spot for some coaches – especially those who left Rachele on the pine. Xerri still outpaced Goldstein for ruck contests and hitouts, meaning the Kangaroos tall still possesses an impressive fantasy floor. For the 3rd consecutive week, Hugo Ralphsmith ($351K, 66, BE 9) topped 60 and seems to be carving out a role in Richmond’s senior outfit and the return of Corey Durdin ($268K, DNP, BE 2) is bound to boost the forward line for both Carlton and fantasy benches around the globe.

Top-5

  1. Josh Rachele (Crows)
  2. Nic Martin (Bombers)
  3. Tristan Xerri (Kangaroos) 
  4. Hugo Ralphsmith (Tigers)
  5. Corey Durdin (Blues)

There aren’t too many challengers up forward with smalls like Malcolm Rosas ($228K, 58, BE 6) and Tyson Stengle ($388K, 59, BE 41) hard to trust. Those who are rocking with Stengle can probably cash him in and I’d be cautious before pursuing a Rosas trade. A season ago, the Gold Coast talent produced scores of 22, 44 and 27 and he needed three goals on the weekend just to get to 50+.

If you’re going to invest in a small Willie Rioli ($407K, 70, BE 9) was probably the one to pounce on, with his price tag making it hard to justify selecting him now. Coaches still have an eager eye on Elijah Hollands ($190K, DNP, BE 25) and despite 89 points from 21 touches on the weekend, I think we’ll have to keep waiting. I’ve heard/read more than one person praising Ollie Dempsey ($190K, DNP, BE 25) for his recent play in Geelong’s VFL side and after four goals and 58 points, he could be a sniff to surprise in the next few rounds.

Best of the Rest

These players may or may not be in the selection mix this week, but be sure to keep them on your 2022 watchlist in case they burst onto the scene. In no particular order:
Ely Smith (Lions, $190K)
Jai Serong (Hawks, $190K)
Sam Darcy (Bulldogs, $288K)
Ned Long (Hawks, $190K)
Joel Jeffrey (Suns, $196K)
Sam Philp (Blues, $205K)
Arthur Jones (Bulldogs, $206K)
Jackson Callow (Hawks, $190K)
Ash Johnson (Magpies, $190K)

Maurice Rioli (Tigers, $190K)

    G’day Fry. A couple of ‘Who to field’ questions for you.
    JHF or Rowell?
    Dixon or Jack Hayes (if named)?
    Thanks Legend

    • Fry

      April 13, 2022 at 12:30 pm

      Good questions mate! He’s been average lately, but I’d still back Rowell in over JHF and I’d side with Hayes if St Kilda brings him back too

  2. Teamfight Tactics

    April 13, 2022 at 9:31 am

    Who goes first?
    Patrick Cripps, M.Crouch, Rowell, Ward, PMac, De Koning, McDonald, Hough, Mcentee or McInnes.
    Currently only Cripps, Crouch, Rowell and Ward are on my field

    • Ben

      April 13, 2022 at 11:58 am

      Hold Cripps. Trade Rowell, and Ward

    • Fry

      April 13, 2022 at 12:31 pm

      In a perfect world you’d chop out Cripps and Ward and get two decent players in return. Might be tricky if you don’t have $$$ stored as well. I’m still in the trade basket with Cripps and would love the chance to swap him for a big MID

    • JungleMuffin

      April 13, 2022 at 6:34 pm

      Crippa, Crouch, Ward have to go based on the numbers. Guys like SDK aren’t worth the trade at this stage and will hopefully be a slow burn +20k each week. Hough much the same. The others I’ve not been watching really.

  3. Damo

    April 13, 2022 at 10:08 am

    1. Who to field out of Ward and Ralphsmith?

    2. Who to buy out of: Heeney, Treloar, English, Sinclair, Simpkin, De Goey, Green, Lloyd, Dawson?

    Thanks heaps Fry!

    • Fry

      April 13, 2022 at 12:32 pm

      No. 1 – Ralphsmith
      No. 2 – Heeney

    • JungleMuffin

      April 13, 2022 at 9:11 pm

      1} Coin flip depending on the week. I’d go with Ward if you asked me any week other than this one, given his performance last week. But I think that’s an outlier, and will back him in this week personally..

      2] Depends on structure. Heeney, Treloar, de Goey, Lloyd are bonafide premiums that don’t need to be justified or explained. Others have question marks. Some I didn’t know were top tier players until signing up to DT this year.

    Hey Fry, thoughts on Windhager’s job security?

    • Mike.

      April 13, 2022 at 11:59 am

      Thanks Fry, appreciate your work.
      I’ve been very fortunate with my Rookies all year.
      I’d been wondering why Hobbs didn’t play anywhere last weekend. It was like he vanished.
      Hopefully he gets a debut soon. I believe he will score in a similar fashion to Daicos and JHF, if not possibly better. I want to get him in asap if named.

      • Fry

        April 13, 2022 at 12:37 pm

        Cheers mate!
        From what I can gather, I think he was a late emergency for the Bombers and hopefully he lines up somewhere this weekend! I don’t know if I’d get my hopes up for scores like Daicos or JHF, I expect him to score similar to Erasmus, which would still be a win!

    • Fry

      April 13, 2022 at 12:34 pm

      I’m a bit worried he’ll lose his spot when Higgins returns, but he should hold his spot for Round 5

  5. Victorbrolling

    April 13, 2022 at 12:17 pm

    Who to downgrade to out of Erasmus or Dixon? DPP not a problem, with Nic Nat out Dixon seems to have the better JS but Erasmus probably has better scoring potential…

    • Fry

      April 13, 2022 at 12:37 pm

      If they’re both on your bench I’d side with Dixon – he’ll make you more money. On field though, Erasmus

      • JungleMuffin

        April 13, 2022 at 9:26 pm

        Not sure about Dixon making more money. Ceiling is much lower. Only question is does Erasmus have enough immediate JS to make bank, and given Fyfe is out for another month or so, plus the talent and development investment required from Freo to fast track him. He’s got to be even money to hold his spot until Fyfe is back. This week will be a really good sign, if he’s in, he’s probably in for a month, by which time he might be undroppable.

        Only reason he might not get a game this week is because of a couple of clangers he made in r4, and whether or not JL/Match committee are timid about biting the bullet. I’d pick him, and have him to stay.

    • JungleMuffin

      April 13, 2022 at 9:20 pm

      Depends what you’re looking for.

      Erasmus a better scorer, higher upside/potential profits. JS not 100% at the moment. Could play the rest of the season, could be out this week. Need more data/ some evidence of where match committee stands.

      Dixon should play the next 6 weeks given Nic Nats injury, which should allow him to max out according to his potential. His ceiling wont be as high as Erasmus, so it’s a tradeoff.

      I have both, prefer Ras head to head, but it’s apples and oranges given positions and positional options. Can’t lose out with either selection, both will make you some cash.

  6. poweyyy

    April 13, 2022 at 12:24 pm

    Not sure what to do here, trade Cripps for Bailey Smith or Ben Keays. If I got Bailey Smith I would have cash left over to spend next round to possibly buy back Cripps and trade out Rowell next round too. If I got Ben I wouldn’t really be able to get Cripps back unless Tom Green scored big and his price went up enough for me to swap him out for Cripps, therefore not leaving much money left to get rid of Rowell. Or do I hold Cripps and get someone like Heeney instead of Coniglio?? Or trade out Rowell for someone like Angus Brayshaw?? In a bit of a predicament here. Any help will be appreciated.

    • poweyyy

      April 13, 2022 at 12:25 pm

      Travis Boak is also an option as a replacement for Cripps

      • poweyyy

        April 13, 2022 at 12:48 pm

        My team is as following

        Sicily Hewett crisp
        McCartin O’Driscoll Whitfield

        JHF Steele Cripps Macrae
        Green Daicos Ward Rowell

        Grundy English

        Coniglio Dunkley Butters
        Rachele Brodie Treloar

    • Fry

      April 13, 2022 at 12:43 pm

      I think trading Cripps is the smart decision with all three of those guys good targets. I feel like Keays is the best of the bunch though

  7. Anthony

    April 13, 2022 at 12:40 pm

    Just looking with some help to brainstorm some trades, currently thinking Rowell & Ward/Macdonald to Lyons & Windhager

    166k in Bank

    Crisp Whit Hew Gib
    Sic Bowey Drisc Stein

    Steele Crae Kelly Crouch Mead
    Rowell JHF Daicos Naish Ward

    Grundy Gawn Hayes

    Dunkley Butters Cogs SDK
    Brodie Martin Xerri Durdin

    • Fry

      April 13, 2022 at 12:46 pm

      I like those trades mate, although I’d probably grab Walsh or Parish over Lyons

  8. Jacko

    April 13, 2022 at 12:42 pm

    Love your work Fry.

    I know he’s not a rookie but what are your thoughts on Zac Williams. Is he back?

    At this stage I might go:

    Ward > Sam Hayes (dpp) or Windhager
    McCartin > Williams.

    Means I get McCartin off my field which is a huge bonus. Thoughts? Otherwise I could go McInerney but I started with him and I’m unsure if going back to him is a good idea, lel.

    • Fry

      April 13, 2022 at 12:48 pm

      Cheers man, appreciate it!
      I’m sceptical after he burnt me last year, but he does seem to have found his mojo. Swapping him for McCartin is worth the dice roll, you can always flick him to a premo for $100K-$150K

  9. Hammer

    April 13, 2022 at 12:48 pm

    G’day Fry! Thoughts on Kai Lohmann? Taken at pick 20 and debuting for Brisbane this weekend.

    • Fry

      April 13, 2022 at 6:28 pm

      He’s got some ripper numbers in the VFL, but I don’t mind waiting a week to see how he looks. Could be a target if he can hit the scoreboard this weekend

  10. Ben

    April 13, 2022 at 1:14 pm

    Afternoon Fry! Should I play Ward or Windhager on the field?

    • Fry

      April 13, 2022 at 6:35 pm

      I’d almost look at looping Windhager if you can, but if Ward holds I’d back him in

  11. sam

    April 13, 2022 at 1:17 pm

    B.Keays or B.Smith, tempted to get Smith as then I’ll have cash in the bank for trades next round.

    • Andy

      April 13, 2022 at 3:39 pm

      Similar here. I have Touk, Macca and Crippa. Can’t decide between Keays, Steele (probs him, such a must have) or Smith (for cash, potential DPP).

      • sam

        April 13, 2022 at 5:20 pm

        I went with Smith for the cash so I have more flexibility to change things if I need to

    • Fry

      April 13, 2022 at 6:35 pm

      Keays for me – got all the traits of a fantasy superstar

  12. Troy

    April 13, 2022 at 3:35 pm

    Callum Mills or Bailey Smith?

    • Fry

      April 13, 2022 at 6:36 pm

      Mills for me

  13. Smithy

    April 13, 2022 at 3:47 pm

    Which order do you rank these 5 based on points and there price
    Mills, Keays, Bailey Smith, Walsh, Lachie Neale

    • Straight shooter

      April 13, 2022 at 6:06 pm

      Neale, Keays, Walsh, Mills an Smith

    • Fry

      April 13, 2022 at 6:41 pm

      I’d go Neale, Keays, Walsh, Mills, Smith – might be disrespecting Bazlenka, but there are a lot of mouths to feed in that Bulldogs midfield

  14. Patrick

    April 13, 2022 at 5:29 pm

    Would you trade in Sam Hayes or Windhager?

    If i go Windhager I can then go Rachele to cover Crippa this week rather than Mead or Hough.

    But then I think I would rather Hayes for the longer run?

    Help would be appreciated

    • Fry

      April 13, 2022 at 6:42 pm

      See if Hayes is picked first, that might make the decision for you! If he’s in, I’d grab him first though

  15. Straight shooter

    April 13, 2022 at 6:09 pm

    Not sure windhager holds his spot Higgins should be back this week an Billings/Clark not far away

    • Fry

      April 13, 2022 at 6:42 pm

      Agreed, I’m a bit sceptical about trading him in

  16. JungleMuffin

    April 13, 2022 at 6:30 pm

    Ward stinking it up last week really hurts early upgrades. if he hit a medicore score he’d be cullable, with many of the other rooks finally showing a bit of life for us. As it stands now, he’ll not make anything for another fortnight at the least.

    He’s probably out for me next week barring a miracle to get his cash gen back on track. Only problem is he doesn’t really give us much to work with.

    • Fry

      April 13, 2022 at 6:43 pm

      Yeah he’s a fine trade out candidate this week for those reasons. Hopefully he gets another life, but it’s no guarantee

  17. Lues

    April 13, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    Which trades r better?
    1.foley and Cripps to Short and Hayes 300k in bank
    2. Cripps and Mccartin to Tom Green and Hayes 100k in the bank
    Will get Crippa back in next week for ward (option 1) and for crouch(option 2)

    • Fry

      April 13, 2022 at 7:53 pm

      If you’re planning on getting Cripps straight back, I’d rather hold the $300k and go No. 1

  18. Russell Pindick

    April 13, 2022 at 9:35 pm

    Hey Fry, Would you trade out Cerra?
    Also, which order would you rate Rosas, Windhager and Lohmann?
    Thanks mate

    • Fry

      April 14, 2022 at 3:32 pm

      Probably not mate, especially now Cripps is out!
      Also, I’d go Windhager, Lohmann then Rosas

  19. texantexan

    April 13, 2022 at 11:52 pm

    Great research as always Fry!

    I have to play one of Durdin, Dixon or Windhager at F6 this week, thoughts?

    • Fry

      April 14, 2022 at 3:33 pm

      Cheers mate!
      I’d probably go Windhager out of that group

      Nice team Choozler. Stengle is a lot of cash on your bench. Maybe downgrade him to Lohmann and use your cash to upgrade Wanganeen or Bowey.

        Thanks. Just waiting on team reveals for an appealing rookie. This Lohmann could be an option, Plus Bowey is ready to go!

      I’d want to add a bit more firepower in the MID’s. Maybe downgrade Ward, then throw the cash on top of Wanganeen-Milera (or Bowey and put WM in your DEF) and see who you can reach

        Thanks Fry. A $190k debutant on any line this week would be handy.

    hey fry, do i trade Skinner if it lets me bring in Bazalenka or do I trade McCartin and get Keays/Steele. Thanks

      If they’re on your field it’s more of a priority to ditch Skinner over McCartin

    Hi Fry, love your work mate. Would you go for Callaghan or Windhager as a downgrade for Ward? Thanks!

    • Fry

      April 14, 2022 at 5:33 pm

      If Windhager holds I’d rather have him

    G’day Fry. Finn Callaghan or Windhager? Thanks man

    • Fry

      April 14, 2022 at 11:27 pm

      I think I’d rather the extra $$$ and DPP with Windhager

    Is it a priority to ditch rookies who are not playing like Hough and McEntee or trade out fattened cash cows such as Ward, PMac and McDonald?

    • Fry

      April 14, 2022 at 11:27 pm

      I think you ditch the non-playing dudes first

    Which trade is best?
    1. Cripps to Macrae and Rowell to Brodie
    2. Hough to Windhanger and Ward to Brodie (field Windhanger or McDonald on field in place of Cripps)

      I prefer No. 1 mate

    Who do you play out of Ward, Durdin, Dixon or Mead?

    • Fry

      April 15, 2022 at 2:35 pm

      Oooo tough one, I think I’d side with Mead. Just

    Who goes first out of MacDonald and Ward?

    • MK

      April 15, 2022 at 1:08 pm

      That’s my dilemma too.

    • Fry

      April 15, 2022 at 2:36 pm

      Ward for me, he’s priced higher so you can maximise $$$ plus Macdonald may add handy FWD status next round.
