  1. And remember – you really only need to worry about your Blues and Tigers players you have the rest of the night and tomorrow to worry about the full squad!!


  2. Carlton v Richmond at the MCG, 7.25pm AEDT



    Carlton: McKay, Newman, Gibbons, Setterfield
    Richmond: Weller, Graham, Broad, Balta


      1. Anyone taking Balta, just remember, he either make it and keeps his place or becomes another Menadue: 5 games ans stuck when Caddy and Grigg are back


      1. Already got coniglio. Fyfe has consistently been great even in a terrible Freo Side, Wondering if Yeo can back up another great season


      1. I’ve gone Parker and Balta, I’m thinking they aren’t holding out anyone (in immediate future) for injury reasons so have a good enough JS.

        Also gone Setterfield but thinking he’s just a given!


    1. DEF: Scrimshaw, Hore, Clark, Duursma & Collins (Burgess is named but won’t score well)

      MID: Walsh, Butters, Constable, Scott, Atkins & Gibbons

      RUC: Maybe Zac Clarke

      FWD: Setterfield (DPP), Drew, Petrucelle & Parker


      1. Balta will score better than Parker, no doubt, but does not have concrete job security. Whereas Parker will play every game and end up being a slow burn, probably trade him out at the byes once he’s made some cash.


      2. Thanks to all of you for the reply! I do this every year and I’ll probably do it again next year… Good luck to you all!


      3. Put a line through Clarke, Bombers bench will be Smith, Tippa, Francis and Parish/Guelfi. We look set on going with Brown and McKernan as our tall forwards with Daniher out.


  3. Is the Motts Maneuver on Josh Kelly looking an interesting choice if a rookie gets up a good score???????


  4. Sunday, March 24

    St Kilda v Gold Coast at Marvel Stadium, 1.10pm AEDT


    New: Matthew Parker (South Fremantle), Callum Wilkie (North Adelaide), Dean Kent (Melbourne)
    Notable absentees: Nathan Brown, Jake Carlisle, Dan Hannebery, Billy Longer, Paddy McCartin, Dylan Roberton, Hunter Clark, Rowan Marshall


    New: Sam Collins (Werribee), George Horlin-Smith (Geelong), Jack Lukosius (Woodville West-Torrens), Chris Burgess (West Adelaide), Anthony Miles (Richmond), Jordan Murdoch (Geelong), Jack Hombsch (Port Adelaide)
    Notable absentees: Sean Lemmens, Izak Rankine, Rory Thompson, Harrison Wigg, Aaron Young, Michael Rischitelli, Ben King, Sam Day

    Greater Western Sydney v Essendon at Sydney Showground Stadium, 3.20pm AEDT


    New: Nil
    Notable absentees: Zac Langdon, Jon Patton, Shane Mumford, Callan Ward, Josh Kelly, Matt Buntine


    New: Dylan Shiel (Greater Western Sydney)
    Notable absentees: Joe Daniher, Matt Dea, Cale Hooker, Darcy Parish, Zac Clarke, Jayden Laverde

    Fremantle v North Melbourne at Optus Stadium, 3.20pm AWST


    New: Lachie Schultz (Williamstown), Rory Lobb (Greater Western Sydney), Reece Conca (Richmond), Travis Colyer (Essendon)
    Notable absentees: Harley Bennell, Connor Blakely, Stephen Hill, Aaron Sandilands, Brennan Cox, Brandon Matera, Jesse Hogan


    New: Aaron Hall (Gold Coast), Jared Polec (Port Adelaide), Bailey Scott (Broadbeach), Dom Tyson (Melbourne), Jasper Pittard (Port Adelaide)
    Notable absentees: Ben Jacobs, Scott Thompson, Majak Daw, Jed Anderson, Paul Ahern


  5. Here’s one for ya Allsaints,IF I was to pick one of Joyce or
    Wilkie for a bench spot,which should I choose?


    1. Tough one. With Nathan Brown back next week I’d probably go Wilkie. Not wholly convinced on either’s JS, but think Wilkie will earn $$s quicker.
      Hope that helps, but not sure you need either do you!?


      1. Sainter Is it worth taking Hore (D8) out for Wilkie?

        Wilkie at least seems to be there as ruck cover with longer still a while away.

        Hore could be out the door when Steven May returns.



  6. Anyone know what Jack Scrimshaws job securitys like?
    Currently have Burgess and no cash to turn him into scrimshaw. But if Scrimshaw is worth it, I can downgrade someone to generate the needed cash (don’t really want to but if it means no Burgess….)
    Any ideas on other def or mid rookies worth getting instead of Scrimshaw would be much appreciated
    Already have
    Def: Ridley, Collins, Hore, Clark
    Mid: Walsh, Butters,Constable, Duursma Scott, Aitkins
    Cheers guys
