      Hurn In, Ryan and Stack out. Snelling, McLean and Langlands are all named and a few playing cheapies in or back in this week.

      Do any of the Port fans think Ladhams is likely to play in Rounds 21 to 23 ?
      Is Taylor (GWS) out for long enough to bother bringing in Stein ?
      Elsewhere Dunkley is looking like he may be a possible downgrade for those not requiring mid dpp.

      Anyone know anything about Carter (Freo) and his JS or scoring potential ?

      Hopefully Friday night culling is kind to everyone's teams and trading plans.
    2. TheTassieHawk
      A few late changes earlier in the day

      2 now for the Cats

      Ugh, what happened to Mundy, he get taken for assessment? He was on 9 points when Walters was on 71...

      Brought him in for Stack to partially upgrade M8 and add some DPP flexibility, and he's underperformed my bench!
      Was on track for 2646 before him and Logue.

      Mundy was played as permanent forward all day and didnt get a touch until 15mins into second quarter! Lucky for the 2 goals! Lucky for me as i beat my oppenent by 2 points

      My team managed to win my work league elimination final and my score of 2560 was a season best round ranking and improves my season best overall ranking but still 150 points needed to be caught up for a top 30k finish.

      I have 2 trades and minimal cash left so if there are no Thursday night bullets I will be planning an upgrade of D Clarke using either funds received via a downgrade of either Hind or Z Clarke. Hopefully that is good enough to get me into a good position for another work league win.

      With regard to my "completed team" should I get there, Grundy is the obvious missing star while Houli, Z Wiliams and Walters would be upgrades on my 5th and 6th Defenders and Forwards.


      It is a much better finals lineup than I should have ended up with giving some shockingly bad premo picks in my starting side as well as the fact I only managed to start or trade in 11 of the top 30 rookies - missing ROB, Stack, Marshall when cheap and Shai Bolton - and of those 11 selected 4 were traded out far too early and made another $80-$100k. The trade-off has been carrying injured premos post byes I would rather have traded out quickly to improve my ranking but had too hold to conserve trades.

      Had my best ever week scoring 2726 and a weekly rank of 57. Moved up over 4000 places and now ranked at 6400. Won all 4 leagues and now straight to prelims. Have two trades left so will wait and see what happens next week before I even think of pulling the trigger. As I said last week - it just took me too long to get here but am happy to have made it this far and will try and win a couple of leagues.

      Cost my wife's TG side wins in both leagues, beaten by 10 and 16 points!

      I'd be inclined to try get Walters as M8 if you can, as it allows the DPP to offer various options for cover especially since you have Hill. In my own side I have Hill and Setterfield on mid and fwd bench which gives me the confidence to use up last trades.

      Is it worth bothering trading Rocky for Merrett... or Mundy (at M8) for Shiel, Ross, Mcrouch, Cunnington?.... I'm just not sure I trust any of them anyway so seems like no point, as frustrating as Rocky and Mundy are.
    10. TheTassieHawk
      D Clarke scoring 37 and Walters punching out a 130 plus sees me $5k short of a Clarke to Walters upgrade this week. Bringing in a Forward like Toby Greene would allow me to swing Heeney to M8 and get a similar dpp cover for my 3 M/F premos.

      If there was another F/M I particularly liked I would definitely be keen on that option however at this stage I am leaning to a mid only M8 partly because Greene has the first game of the week and I am not wanting to trade too early due to the lack of DEF cover. If I hold trades until Saturday night 4 defenders would have played and my late withdrawal risk is reduced to Hurn and Laird.
    11. TheTassieHawk
      Rocky is often feast or famine but is playing early enough to be loopholed at M9 this week if your team structure allows. Mundy playing forward for Freo is a terrible role for SC owners and may be worth moving on if you have trades in hand.
    12. ike2112
      Yeah I am leaning towards Mundy out, but I just don't think I trust any of the options to bring in - Mcrouch, Shiel, Cunnington have all been having down weeks.
      I'm thinking since my entire Midfield bench are named (Answerth, Hately, Baker) I might just play Danger as M8 and switch Mundy to forward line and look at what Hayden Maclean scores - if its 70+ take that score, loopholed using Gardner, and leave Mundy on the bench, saving the trade.

      Also for my other team, I can't believe Sam Jacobs has been named on-ground, ROB extended bench. What's going on there?

      With 1 trade left and no ruck cover I can't be doing with this, this isn't why I kept a trade behind!
    14. IPOD
      2 trades left but confident Answerth can pull another 75-90 game as my D6 vs Gold Coast hopefully get through use a trade next week (leave Birchall rot on bench)
