    The Allies extended squad is listed by average at

    http://tooserious.net/forum/stats.p...os=&salary=0&name=&up_code=&tsLeagueTeamId=97

    For those of you who can login this looks like:-
    Allies.png

    The Allies need to name a team of 15 - 4 Def - 4 Mid - 4 Fwd - 1 Ruck - 2 IC (next best 2 players of any position) - plus 1 Emergency for every line by 2pm on Friday.

    I will leave @FreoDockers to lead the discussion, but it would be great to hear from @That KI Guy and any of the non aligned coaches who have decided to join the Allies camp (@stripey, @Len, @anthak).

    Cheers TTH

    I definitely consider myself a Victorian, but I’m gonna put my hand up for the Allies given I live in NSW now and my ORFFW team Pomona is in Qld.

    @TheTassieHawk what are the orange and blue dots in the pictures near certain players?

    Orange = dpp F/M players (I would expect players to be picked as Forwards first)
    Blue = subject to being released from the Mystix 16 player squad for All Stars duties (should have also put Blue against Bec Beeson)

    Going by this season’s averages to date,
    This would be the team:

    Def - Brazil, Lutkins, Pound, SL Thompson (Koenan);
    Mid - Bowers, Anderson, Stanton, O’Dea (Parker);
    Fwd - Phillips, Hatchard, Cramey, Brennan (Harris);
    Ruck - J Foley (Houghton);
    IC - Bates, King (Yorston).

    I guess the question is whether we want to make any changes to this?

    Cramey has been out for a cpl weeks with a hamstring, but I believe she’s in contention for selection with Adelaide this week.

    Hello fellow Allies coaches.
    Thanks for the input Anthak - I think the team pretty much picks itself for the main players so don't have a lot of changes from your selections.
    However I'm thinking the following:
    Def - Brazill, Lutkins, Pound, Thompson (A Foley)
    Mid - Bowers, Anderson, Stanton, O'Dea (Parker)
    Fwd - Phillips, Hatchard, Brennan, Harris (Walker)
    Ruck - J Foley (Houghton)
    I/C - Bates, King (Beeson)
    My 3 changes are Ang Foley interchange for the defenders, replace Cramey with Tayla Harris and add Brooke Walker to the bench. Not sure whether Cramey will play and how the hammy holds up, and finally replace Yorston with Beeson (depending on availability).
    Look forward to thoughts and opinions before the final team is picked!

    Cool, good work @FreoDockers

    Just to clarify, they weren’t my selections, I was just simply listing highest averages as a base to work from.

    I’m happy with your changes. The only thing I wonder is if we can fit SFT in there somewhere because she’s got the ability to take over the game any given week, and she’s averaged around 60 fpts in both of the last two seasons. Even if it’s just in place of Walker.

    I agree that we ignore Cramey.

    I also think that we should consider SFT over Brennan/Harris/Walker. In particular Walker whose RD 6 score was boosted by a couple of goals in a big win.

    My opinion is that we also should consider Parker as IC2 with King/Houghton fighting out Ruck Emergency.

    @FreoDockers would know better than I but Houghton is most likely playing forward with Laurie and Janz rucking, so factor in whether she kicks many goals against NM with players like Duffin intercepting as well.

    Likewise does King kick many goals as a Foward this week ? I would think she could struggle a little if it is a close game or Freo wins even though she scored well in early season blowouts.

    We have good options in any case !

    Happy to put SFT in instead of Walker as Emergency - as Brisbane play the pies she might have a day out...
    The Freo/Kangas game is interesting as with Alex Williams doing an ACL Ebony Antonio will probably move into defence, leaving Houghton as the main forward for Freo sharing "key forward" duties with Laurie/Janz. Then again, I might be overthinking it - however I will be attending the Dockers/Kangaroos game on Saturday afternoon so will get to see it all live... Should be an absolute cracker of a match.

    I am clearly an Allies man, but also clearly a shocking selector :)

    Hello fellow coaches. As time is ticking down, I present the team unless someone has a compelling argument to include a certain player at the last minute..
    .
    Def - Ash Brazill, Kate Lutkins, Gab Pound, Stevie-Lee Thompson (Ang Foley)
    Mid - Kiara Bowers, Ally Anderson, Jamie Stanton, Elise O'Dea (Bec Beeson)
    Fwd - Erin Phillips, Anne Hatchard, Katie Brennan, Tayla Harris (Sabrina Frederick-Traub)
    Ruck - Jess Foley ( Emma King)
    I/C - Emily Bates, Alyce Parker (Gemma Houghton)

    Now all I've got to work out is how/where to load the team.... This is what happens when you put a West Australian in charge...
    TTH your assistance would be fantastic here!

    The team won't be loaded in the same way as the weekly teams. I will asume that this is the final lineup and delete the nonselected players from the extended squad in TSleagues.

    If there are no further objections by 3pm can you please post this team in the Grand Final thread and give a bit of stick to the Vics while you are at it !

    yeah sorry all, flat out with too much fantasy (and a bit of RL thrown in there for S&G's)
    i'm certainly a better fan than an analyst in this format so will back in the judgement of @FreoDockers and @anthak

    go the non-aligners!
