Petrie?

Written by Motts on February 22 2011

Drew Petrie has just accepted a one match ban from the MRP meaning he’ll be out of the first game of the season. Will this affect your decision to draft him into your team?

What to do with Daniel Wells (NTH)?

  1. The ‘final’ decision in my side for the last few weeks has been the battle between Petrie and Knights for a spot in the 33 (I have never really considered Petrie as a starting ruckman). Now, with no game in round 1, no game in round 3 and missing the first week of the finals series with another bye, Petrie is out for sure

  2. Initially, yes. But after thought I think not. Petrie for me is just a relatively cheap back up option for me throughout year – to cover ruck bye’s, likely injuries and dpp for forwards as well. If I was relying on him in my starting lineup then yes I’d go with someone else but for his price, we know he’s likely to be on the field most weeks (not always true for rookies) and will/should make a good back up and depth for finals when trades run thin

  3. Bartel just had his tonsils out and won’t play footy for a couple of weeks. But surely this isn’t a worry, if anything it is a bonus. Tonsils get in the way of air intake meaning that he will have increased air flow and therefore more power. Brmm Brmm!!

  4. I think I will probably keep him as he was probably in as my 3rd ruck… based on the fact that he will hopefully score well and increase in value significantly so by the time week 1 of the finals come around I’ll reaping the rewards of all the cash he made for me.
    A long time to decide however….

  6. Petrie worries me given he missed a lot of footy with a bad injury for a big man…. And he’s a little injury prone…. Not to mention form is a little up and down at the best of times…. So, never had him.

  7. Makes it easier for me. Had both Knights and Petrie, but was considering a bit of team structure change with one of these to be upgraded to a prem. Will now be Petrie. Now have the insurance of Petrie’s price not changing to after round 4. So, therefore can see how Knights is going, and switch if he’s going rubbish, or can offload a cashcow that has gone gangbusters and then gets injured! ha.

  8. I couldn’t fit him in my team and his performance in the NAB cup didn’t fill me with confidence.
    There is a positive however, we get to have a look at him in rds 2 & 4 before his price goes up. If he has two blinders you can pick him up in rd five as a straight swap for one of your rookies that have gained in value over wks 3/4 but is losing there spot in the team/injured etc…. Just a thought.
    Ps – R Gamble could be a fair replacement, will get plenty of opportunities if he gets a regular game. Keep an eye on him…

  10. He’s a lock for me despite the suspension. Prior to last year he averaged over 90 over four years whilst missing just one game so at that price if he stays fit he will be as good a cash cow as any rookie and may even be a keeper at F7. There are good enough rookies to cover for him in Rds 1&3 and remember its a test match – there’s no prizes issued in April.

  11. My thinking is this. With a suspension in Rnd 1 and a bye in Rnd 3 it means Petrie’s price won’t start rising until Rnd 4 into Rnd 5. By that time Petrie could be a handy target as a replacement for a long term injury in the fwd or ruck stocks.
