    1. Petracca not looking so good with 53.3 % d.e. and 3 clangers. Even more so given that his possessions were mostly uncontested.

    1. No one tags Priddis. Ever. But if they tag Mitchell, Shuey will carve them up. I still think Shuey gets the #1 tag. I’m thinking Mitchell’s worked his way back into my team.

  2. All this talk in Gawn getting rubbed put for R1. If he gets suspended everyone will explode. Hopefully this MRP all play Supercoach…on the flip side if he’s out for R1 he could be a very nice POD.

      1. Not sure about most but I concern myself over my SC leagues before my overall score. If Preuss plays happy to take the point difference for one game and hold onto Gawn, no wasting a trade here.

  4. The more ruck scores I see the more I think a Sandilands/Nankervis ruck setup is a viable alternative until we really know how teams are going to run their rucks, then shift Nankervis forward on the first upgrade.

    1. Bloody hell. Not sure whether this is keen insight, or epic troll.

      It could be both.

      Now I’m so confused about my rucks that I don’t know my own name or where I live.

    1. Both Oliver and Wellingham have had excellent preseasons. Could be good POD options.

      McGovern also is reasonably cheap compared to his capability.

      Pity he presents himself as as big a prat as Rockliff.

      Still I guess that “prat” is not a supercoach stat.

      1. Last year for some comparison, Oliver averaged 70 and hit 90 & 98 as his top two scores..I really like him as a player but can’t get excited about his JLT efforts at that awkward $380k price.

    2. Great work Adam. Jayden Hunt has big raps from the coaches down at Demonland… I wonder how effective he might be off half back as a mid-pricer. Not reading too much into 1 game of course…but certainly raises a few eyebows as a good D3/D4 POD.
