Motts Movers’ – Rucks R10

Written by Motts on 1:22 am, May 27 2009

I bet you thought I’d be running out of ruck options that I hadn’t already talked about by now. Wrong.

  • Darren Jolly ($419,800, 97.33) – sure his average is massively skewed by a 190 explosion in R2 but he’s still in the top 5 rucks in the comp.
  • Matthew Kreuzer ($432,600, 87.56) – no sophmore slump for this bloke. Still learning the game but with an average of a veteran.

Don’t get sucked in by:

  • Will Minson ($315,600, 59.89) – it’s a little known fact that I drive Will Minson’s late dad’s car.

Motts’ Movers – Midfielders R10

Written by Motts on 11:17 pm, May 26 2009

This week’s crop of midfielders. Would love to be looking at them myself but I’ve got a couple of issues named Higgins and Waite that I’ll be attending to front and back ahead of a big game against The Sleek Greek (no Sol, I’m not being racist).

  • Dane Swan ($512,100, 107.22) – looks to be through recent injury concerns with his 149 last week and for his average is pretty darn cheap.
  • Peter Burgoyne ($417,300, 89.71) – has posted 3 tons from 7 games this year but has mingled some shit scores in with them.

Motts’ Movers – Defenders R10

Written by Motts on 8:53 am, May 25 2009

If you, like me, have got a crisis down back with the gut wrenching, season ending injury to Jarrad Waite on the weekend here are your options. As always, I’ll give you three different priced options:

  • Josh Drummond ($557,900, 115.00)
  • Paddy Ryder ($414,200, 89.44)
  • Nathan Grima ($94,200, 65.00)

I won’t go into why you should be picking these guys. I reckon you’ll do your own research before using up 5% of your annual trades picking them up. I’m just pointing your head in their direction. Of course, you can also have a look at any of the other bombers I’ve recommended over the last few weeks.

Worst Trades Thus Far – Traders Remorse

Written by Duck on 12:08 pm, May 21 2009

Ask any SC Coach you know , “How is Your SC team travelling”

Invariably the answer will revolve around one , if not all of the following responses.

1) Injuries
2) Players not performing
3) Players dominating
4)The young kids and the $ increase value they bring to your side
5) Captain Choice
6) Emergencies (See blog 000 Call Emergency)

etc ….etc…..etc

Now I want to ask the important question , the one that SC Coaches hate to talk about .

What is your worst trade thus far ?

Motts’ Movers – Forwards R9

Written by Motts on 5:19 am, May 21 2009

OK so you’ve got a couple of big swinging dicks up forward – maybe a Riewoldt (not of the Jack variety), maybe a Pavlich, or maybe a Neon Leon – and you’re looking for the next big thing to get on. Or maybe you’re looking for a straight trade with not much cash involved for a rookie like Nathan Karakouer that you think has capped out. Either way, these are the blokes I think are this week’s best bets:

Jason Porplyzia ($380,100, 82.50). Remember last year when this guy burst onto the scene? It seemed like every other bloke had him.
