Hands up who’s already locked Naitanui, Franklin, Burton and the youngster Banner into their teams?

  1. I had Naitanui last year and was moderately impressed …… just not consistent at all. Based on his first game this year he’s improved and certainly worth consideration. Will have a good look at him in the next game and it’s consistancy i’m hoping to see.

  2. Franklin – Not yet

    The trouble for Franklin is, he will be missing for the Round 1 clash against Melbourne, serving the final match of that controversial two-match suspension for making high contact to Ben Cousins.

    WiIll be opt someone who will actually score some points and earn some and trade Franklin in for Round 4

    Burton – Is in but no lock. His age injury is a big worry. Doubt he’ll make a whole 22 games. And he is yet to be tested against a quicker opponent of a comparable skill set. Of the Crow I would say Dangerfield impressed me most.

    Naitanui – had no real ruck competition, won’t be playing the entire games in the ruck with Dean Cox comes back. In a match against say the Collingwood at the G with him rotating through the ruck and coming against guys like Jolly and Fraiser I can’t see him having many games about 50 dream team points. Will wait and see how Mumford and Seaby go before committing.

    Banner – looks great but with Jetta, Martin, Morabito, and Trengrove have to ask the question just how many rookies can start in the midfield.

    1. Some fair points there Dave. I will give Buddy a miss this year … as i will many Hawks players that gave me nothing on so many occasions last season and cost me a few wins.

      1. Beware of the grudge, Duck. Some players and teams have off seasons only to bounce back and you could miss out on a bargain due to an irrational emotion. Now, if I could only swallow my own medicine…………..

    2. Beware of the burnt trade, Dave. a) R1 doesn’t really count for much and you can cover with your bench, b) you will only get one round’s price rise if you trade someone out to get Buddy for R4, c) you will have burnt a trade which you may later regret.

    1. Agreed. He’s the only one of my cheaper players that have impressed so far. I had (“had” being the operative word) Davis, Hentschel and Trengrove (PA) but all were disappointing. The search goes on…………
