      Think I have decided that I’m going to double down bonner - keefe and banfield - Spargo cop the NicNat donut and possible double up grade next week
    5. TheTassieHawk
      Fair call there @That KI Guy

      I think the kangas had only used 26 players in the opening 7 rounds and I assume he will get his chance sooner rather than later.

      Brought in Ronke this week and managed to have him on the field!

      The only good thing about not having Ronke is also not having O’Meara
    9. anthak
      Well done Jason, good call!

      My gut was telling me to pick Ronke all week. He’d looked so good as a player, even when he scored low last week. And Spargo’s first two good games came against fairly weak opposition. But in the end I went with Spargo, mainly because of his DPP (and also because I’d suggested preseason “keep an eye out for him because if he breaks into the senior team he could be a natural scorer”, so I also partly wanted to stick to my guns and back my preseason research). I know Spargo is yet to play this round but im already rueing my decision. Hopefully the DPP comes in handy one day.

      Had English all year and the week I need him he gets dropped !
      What's his JS like - will he be back soon or do I trade for Cox McInerney or Crossley to cover the Nic Nat donut

      Or do I go Nic Nat to Grundy ? Thoughts
    11. Jason
      Spargo certainly looked the better overall, but I brought him in the previous week, so I went to Ronke this week.

      He will return, not sure if he gets a 1- or 2-week spell though. Not named as an emergency because he wasn't dropped on form, should have said "managed" like many other weekly changes are listed as.

      I traded Spargo instead of Ronke for the same reasons, thought of a double downgrade then went Oliver instead of Ronke, I did need DPP tho.
    14. TheTassieHawk
      It will be interesting to see how may brought Ronke in either ahead of Spargo in going 1 down 1 up or as a double downgrade.

      120 will see him make a lot of cash by Round 11 assuming he stays on the park.

      The ruck decision is definitely a tough one. Crossley/McInerney gives donut cover this week while we don't know whether to trade English out or to move him to F8 or to ignore the ruck and just take the donut.

      I ended up doing the latter and trading Banfield/Murray ==> Spargo/Sicily (D4).

      Tim Kelly, Doedee, Finlayson, Naughton, English, Holman and Fritsch are still in my side so I plan to bring in my D5, F6 and M7 as these players and Higgins peak between rounds 9 and 11 if the injury gods are kind.
    15. TheTassieHawk
      No late changes for the 435pm Suns vs Demons or the 510pm Showdown matches
    16. port_leschenault
      I don't understand why you'd want to keep English? If you need a playing ruck to cover NicNat donut than downgrading English to McInerey or Crossley seems self evident.

      Dear Matt Crouch, jfc, 5 clangers in the first half! Apologies for the kiss of death, all who brought him in. :(

      Saturday night update:

      17/1809 - Gawn cap

      Got some good scorers and some shite ones - particularly rookies Cole and Spargo, but also Zerrett and Titchell.

      Still got JHiggins, Tuohy, Goldsetin, Dusty and Tim Kelly to come, so hoping for 2300+ but projected for much less...

      How are others doing?
