  1. Finished on 2419 for the weekend. Lost in PA’s league by 100 but through to 3 grand finals out of 5.

    Gibbs back in next week should bolster the Kelsos’ backline just nicely.

    Now just to see who gets rested next weekend!

  2. Im in the SCT1 GF, and lost (well Heppel needs to score 61+ for me to lose) another….even though I scored 2512…

    Im secretly praying for heppel to break his leg after he turned every possession of his over which resulted in a port goal…haha

  3. Wishful thinking maybe for me beloved Power, haven’t seen them play this good for a long time, but does get me thinking, is Essendon going to throw this game. Have 8th spot wrapped up, Carlton have 5th spot wrapped up, therefore 1st Elimination final, Bombers would play in Melbourne. Win today and maybe a possibility they could play Sydney in Sydney in a sudden death final. One wonders…

  4. 2330. Black Sunday for The Phat Side. Bundled out of all 3 Prelims, again! ( also crashed out of SCT 2 in DT). Bound to fall outside top 1k though. Clinging on to 2nd spot in my cash league total points race. Might make some dosh there. That’s my only solace.

    Waited till the Prelim to smash out my 2nd best ever score & win 4/5 to progress into 4 Grand Finals……..lost the 5th one by 16 to complete a clean sweep! ps; changed my (C) 5 minutes before the game from Swan too!!

    7/8 tips only missing on the tiges at AAMI today……made up the difference on the No 1 tipper in the work comp & we both start fresh on 140 each next week!

    With the final top 4 & 8 pretty much sorted before r24, there could be some absolute SC carnage next week with the well published “GENERAL” being a huge factor in heaps of SC Grand Final’s week!!!!!!

    What do you think SCT coaches?

    Got beat in 3 of my 4 leagues including cash one.
    Huge potential score from GAJ was only thing giving me hope after Mitchell pulled out & had to take Mzunga’s fifty odd.
    Mad Monday tomorrow then cannot wait to start researching for next season!! Thanks again to all at SCT for assistance with my 2222 season average.

    Next year I am not using any trades until halfway through the season! Sylvia and Pav not being traded …. BECAUSE I HAVE NO TRADES LEFT!!! Now waiting for Cyril to be rested next week, with Hurley out as well, Cox probably being rested as well – IM STUFFED!!

    Anyway, this week:
    Let down by the smae names – Broughton, Hurn, Cyril – and adding to that group is Fisher, Pederson, Cox and Didak.

    Won 3 out of 4 matches so in to 3 grannies …. something to be happy about. But thinking about it, if Micky ‘bloody’ Malthouse had kept NEONLEON on then i could have won my other league. But anyway, hoping everyone else went well!

    GOOD LUCK NEXT WEEK EVERYONE!

  17. 2333 / GAJ.

    Into the GF in my league with my Cricket mates (makes it three GFs in a row in that league … dynasty!!)

    Score could’ve been so much more:
    Puopolo (emerg) >> Broughton +81
    N Riewoldt (emerg) >> Smith +109
    GAJ (c) >> N Riewoldt (c) +76

    And i only scored 129 from my two rucks (Cos and Jolly).

    Of the five leagues that I am in I have made 3 Grand Finals Including my main league which is against my best bud. He still has two trades left because he didn’t get a chance to do anything before lockout. Oh Crap.

  19. thinking about my trade already for Sylvia-

    Mid options: Daniel Rich, Embley, Bolton, D.Swallow, P. Dangerfield (fwd), J. Steven (fwd), J. Gram or major roughie Brett Peake. Rich is looking SO tempting out of this lot, BL might bring out another big effort for Lukey Power, and play for pride. They do have Sydney which really puts me off though. Maybe Embley then? they have Adelaide at home.

    Fwd options: Podsiadly- looks good but only got 79 against the pies earlier in the year and also has friday night hoodoo game, Grundy, Stevie Milne would be an awesome POD but only got 82 against Carlton last time when I decided it was time to hit the bar with Motts at half time we were going ‘that well’ :/ , Also LOVING the look of Kozi he looks amazing. Not sure how he goes SC wise but he has really transformed himself over the last month or so.

    There’s my completely biased thoughts.

    Lost by 64 points, have finished 3rd for the season in my league, which is the best yet, the previous 3 years have been 3rd last or worse. Big thanks to SCT and all involved couldn’t have done it without you. Look forward to next year and aiming to ease off on the trade finger so I’ve got some for the finals!

    Only in one league and made it to the GF against the Brother-In-Law!
    Ranking up 234 to 1190 overall. Will be absolutely stoked if I crack top 1K.
    Average up to 2261.52. Hoping to qualify in an SCT league next year.

    Thinking the General will have a big impact this week so holding off until last minute for trade scenarios. Amazingly, I still have 2 trades left but only $24,100 in the coffers.

    Backline needs some work. Thinking Broughton > Scotland but need another 80K from somewhere. Pavlich or Heppell could become Muppet (91K) which frees up plenty of cash. Alternatively, take a risk and downgrade Boyd to Cotchin/Sewell.

    Rucks are a worry. Currently I have Cox/Hale/Petrie v Cox/Mumford. Hale v GCS could be good enough but not if Mumford continues his stellar performance. Saw a thread that suggested Mummy was limping off at the end of the Cats game. Anyone know more?

    Season over in the League, would like to finish the year off with a little luck and a nice score. It has been a brutal season, but I’ve nevertheless enjoyed playing the game and frequenting this site.
    Cheers to Duck, BS & Motts for creating and maintaining an excellent site.
    Cheers to all the regular and the irregular contributors.
    Sincere Apologies to those who actually followed any advice that I presented this year. If it is any consolation, I believed it myself at the time I offered it. ๐Ÿ˜€
    Well played Dragenblade. Too good for me this time.
    Good luck to you Masterstroke, my esteemed opponent in the SCT 2 DT GF.
    1 V 2 seems fair & reasonable to me. I’ll need to be on my game to have a chance of defeating you this week.

  25. I just want to say thanks to everyone who suggested awhile back to bring in Mumford into the Ruck to cover Petrie for the first week of the finals. WOW – he has been amazing! It’s hard to describe the feeling, but it’s a bit like when you hook up with a girl and for the first few weeks the sex is amazing and your doing it 10 time a week in all sorts of places – well that’s what it feels like having the big Mummy in the team! Anyway, thanks guys ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. 2210/Buddy

    Made one grand final out of 3. Won in my main league by 44 points thanks to Bellchambers being a no-show on Sunday, and lost by 28 and 35 points in the others. Just imagine if Buddy could kick straight!!! Nearly copped a donut with Mitchell a late withdrawal, but was prepared for that and had good cover on the bench.
    Not happy my team will be missing Daisy for the big one, but with all the hawks in my team, I’m sure they’ll thump Gazza and Suns one last time for a big hurrah and hopefully salute.

  28. Into 2 out of 5 grand finals. Haven’t been on here at all for a couple of weeks, due to work and bit of nerves too. I don’t know if that’s been a good thing or a bad thing as sometimes I think too many varying valid opinions can cloud your decision making.

    Made the GF that I least likely thought I would make during the season, which happens to be the main cash league I’m in. Stand to win $500 for a win this weekend. Giggetty!!!
