Motts Movers R13 – The Rucks

Written by Motts on June 30 2010

AKA Motts Movers – Who For Krooz?

D Jolly ($360,200 $+16,600 ($-133,000), 67.15) – Cracked the ton for the first time this year on the weekend – evidence enough for me that he’s acclimatised to Melbourne’s balmy weather and the Collingwood way of doing things* and is back to his form of last year. With a BE of 34 his price WILL rise again next week so even if you’re playing a dud this round, get on him now. As with all trades this time of year you should also be taking into account who and where players are playing between Rounds 19 and 22 (the SC finals series). In Jolly’s case all 4 games are at the MCG against teams that don’t have great rucks. Mmmmmm………

K Tippett ($362,400 $+21,700 ($-63,500), 63.15) – I named K-Tip in Motts Movers R11 and was roundly criticised for doing so. Comments like “sweet lord! are you mental, Tippett is a complete waste of money!” and “Premature on ALL counts here Motts…….I traded K-Tip out after round 2 and have never looked back” literally flooded the website. What’s he done since then? Not much. Other than RACK UP ANOTHER COUPLE OF TONS! With a BE of MINUS 5 its possible he could go up another $80k after taking on a Fletcher-less Essendon at home this week.

* the Collingwood way of doing things usually involves a motorcycle helmet and a knife but not in this instance.

  1. I have enough $ to trade Sandilands in for Kruezer but i’m thinking it may be better to trade in Jolly instead and spend the extra $ elsewhere. Thoughts?

  2. With NicNat’s poor form in the last two rounds (43 & 48) avg 45.5, is it time to lose the faith and go to someone like those two guys above? or do we hang on to him and keep our trades for injuries.

  3. I still think Jolly is a risk. Only one ton. But I will also be trading in Jolly for Kreuz. Having traded out tippett in round 4 I cannot bring myself to reinstate him.

  4. Tippett is definitely a candidate for the Double Burn. Many of us have already been burnt once and refuse to take the risk again – it will be doubly painful, though, if he repays our stubbornness with a string of 100+ scores.
