  1. I’ll kick things off… Potentially will line up with his lineup for Rd10:

    DEF: Adams, Docherty, Laird, Lloyd, Howe, Newman (Berry, Hibberd)
    MID: T.Mitchell, Dangerfield (VC), Bontempelli, Pendlebury (C), J.Selwood, Fyfe, Treloar, Myers (Fisher, Pickett, Balic)
    RUC: Nankervis, Witts (Sandilands)
    FWD: Yeo, Macrae, Dahlhaus, Franklin, Steele, Parsons (Strnadica, Eddy)

    14 trades, two spots left to upgrade before luxuries and bugger all in the bank. Eying off Roberton and Neale/Sloane/Rocky

    Byes structure before trades this week though is 16, 20 (1 bench) and 17 playing but I will get rid of two of Pickett/Balic/Eddy to field at least 19 players per round and get some cash generating to make the last couple of upgrades.


  2. Def: Laird, Adams, Shaw, Newman, Stewart, McInnes, Melican, Hibberd – North ๐Ÿ™
    Mid: Titchell, Danger, Zerrett, Jelwood, Hannebery, Fyfe, Treloar, Beams (Fisher, Fox, Pickett)
    Ruck: Sandi, Nank (Strndica)
    Fwd: Yeo, Dahl, Buddy, Steele, N. Riewoldt, Heeney (Parsons, Eddy)

    15 trades left with $127k in the bank. No to fussed with overall ranking so i haven’t looked at how i’m placed for the byes.

    Only trade for now was Stewart to Perryman (T/up) / McNiece (T/down) for cash

    Hopefully add 2 premiums into defence and see who i can get closer to finals


    1. Nice team! Sandilands will miss this week through injury so might be worth at looking to upgrade him? Goldy has the nice bye and looks to have turned the corner with is scores.


      1. Thank you!

        Still think Sandi has value come finals so i will cop the donut this week.

        I can go Stewart / Melican to Hibberd / Perryman ($2k left in the bank). Lose the potential value from Melican but hopefully gain a premium for $437k



        1. Nothing wrong with a donut time to time, especially if you have plans as sometimes trying to fix a 0 can ruin your structure.

          You’re Rd11 bye structure remains unchanged so no problem with those trades. Also the sooner you can get a premo onto the park the better. Melican has every potential to lose cash this week before his bye anyway.


  3. Def: Laird, Adams, JJ, Harbrow, Newman, Berry (Stewart, Hibberd)
    Mid: Danger, Pendels, Bont, Joelwood, Fyfe, Murphy, Treloar, Barrett (Fisher, Lloyd, Pickett)
    Ruck: Sandi, Grundy (Strndica)
    Fwd: Macrea, Dahl, Buddy, Nank, Cameron, Heeney (Greenwood, Eddy)

    13 Trades 12k banked. i’m full premo minus Barrett, Newman, Berry. Looking to downgrade Stewart in round 12 to Schanerberg/Ryan hopefully both named then and Upgrading Barrett to a fallen premium

    Bye Structures counting floating Doughnuts Eddy,Pickett, Hibberd, Straccida is 18/26/19 playing


    1. Liking this team with some unique selections in Harbrow and even Cameron. Harbrow will definitely be of great use for you during these byes
      Going to be stretched week 1 of the byes so maybe look to bring in a Rd 12 player to help cover as that week.


  4. Current team (includes this weeks trade of Out: C McCarthy, In: Greenwood)

    Def: R Laird, K Simpson, H Shaw, S Burgoyne, N Newman, C Hampton, (J Berry, T Stewart)
    Mids: P Dangerfield, S Pendlebury, J Selwood, M Priddis, N Fyfe, M Bontempelli, J Kennedy, SPP, (Barrett, Fisher, Myers)
    Rucks: T Goldstein, A Sandilands, (J Witts)
    Fwds: L Franklin, J Steele, W Hoskin-Elliot, T Taranto, K Turner, H Greenwood, (J Parsons, B Eddy)
    Remaining trades: 18
    Remaining salary: 226,500
    Current rank: 66,257

    Bye structure (excludes Eddy and the R3): RD11: 19/28
    RD 12: 20/28
    RD 13: 17/28

    Planned bye trades:
    Out: Newman, Witts, Sandi, WHE, Hampton, Turner, Taranto,
    In: Ryan/Scharenberg, Cameron/Strandica, Gawn, Ainsworth, Docherty, Dahlhaus and Macrae.


    1. Honestly that Forward line looks incredibly thin might want focus building that first but the bye structure looks good, nice and even so hopefully you can field 18 every week without trouble


  5. DEF: Docherty, Laird, Adams, Williams, Otten, Newman (Stewart, McInnes)
    MID: Bont, Dangerfield, Pendlebury, Selwood, Kennedy, Fyfe, Treloar, Powell-Pepper (Barrett, Myers, Fisher)
    RUCK: Sandilands, Witts (Cameron)
    FWD: Macrae, Dahlhaus, Franklin, Steele, Nankervis, Hoskin-Elliot (Parsons, Eddy)

    17 trades left, 45k in the piggybank
    Otten, Newman, WHE, SPP and Barrett should be ripe over the next few weeks.
    4/5 spots to fill, looking at Lloyd, Roberton, Sloane and Yeo/Kennedy in add for full premo

    Byes: 18, 23, 20 in total playing

    Round 11 is looking tight.


  6. prior to trades this week
    Def: Shaw, Adams, Laird, Howe, Mbank, Newman (Berry, Stewart)
    Mids: Danger, Pendles, Titch, Hanners, JPK, Selwood, Fyfe, Barrett (Myers, Ballic, Fisher)
    Ruck: Sandy, Stef martin (Strnadica)
    Fwds: Buddy, Dahl, Steele, Yeo, Nank, WHE (Butler, parsons)

    17 trades, $21,400 in bank
    Before trades this week will have 17 available rd 11 (assuming butler plays, ballic still unavailable)
    20 (plus one on bench) rd 12
    18 rd 13

    Plan is to downgrade three of Mbank, Barrett, Ballic, Butler to rookies playing rd 11 (Greenwood for sure then toss up out of McInnes, Lloyd, Bolton, and to lesser extent Galluci, Perryman, J Stewart, Scharenberg if named) then upgrade WHE and the remaining one of the above cows to Bont and Doch after rd 11 which means I have newman sitting at D6 and one other rookie in Fwd line to upgrade.
    Other trades Im tossing up are to swap Shaw to J lloyd or Roberton after rd 12 and whether to bring in Macrae at F6 or bring in a POD with a bigger ceiling now and upgrade Steele to macrae later in the year.


  7. My team prior to trades this week:

    Sam Docherty, Taylor Adams, Rory Laird, Zach Tuohy, Nic Newman, Andy Otten, Caleb Marchbank, Jarrod Berry
    Marcus Bontempelli, Marc Murphy, Patrick Dangerfield, Tom Mitchell, Joel Selwood, Nat Fyfe, Adam Treloar, David Swallow, Harley Balic, David Myers, Sam Powell-Pepper
    Aaron Sandilands, Todd Goldstein, Braydon Preuss
    Josh J. Kennedy, Luke Dahlhaus, Toby Nankervis, Jack Steele, Will Hoskin-Elliott, Tim Taranto, James Parsons, Brett Eddy

    Would like to get rid of Marchbank and Sandilands this week. Maybe bringing in James Stewart in the forward line via Nankervis DPP. And bring in Jake Lloyd to the back line for Marchbank.

    I have the first couple bye rounds pretty much sorted. I’m a little nervous about round 13 but should be able to scrape through without a 0 so long as my rookies keep playing (although will probs need to trade out Preuss & Eddy).

    I’m sitting at rank 120 overall. Hoping I can crack through to the top 100 through through the byes. Time will tell!


    1. My planned trades:

      Rd. 10 – OUT Sandi, Marchbank | IN J.Lloyd, J.Stewart (pending teams)
      Rd. 11 – OUT Balic, Preuss, Berry (maybe) | IN H.Greenwood, Strnadica ($$$)
      Rd. 12 – OUT Parsons, Swallow/SPP | IN Rocky/Heeney/Buddy/Macrae + Rookie
      Rd. 13- OUT Myers/Taranto/WHE/Otten | IN Martin/Rance/Yeo

      Eddy probably getting the chop somewhere in there pending on available rookies & upgrade targets


      1. Very nice team (naturally with your rank anyway) and I like the planned trades.

        Glad you didn’t post how many trades you have left either, as someone so high ranked it’s good to keep that a little secret!

        Best of luck, we’ll be watching!


  8. Def:Laird,Rance,Simmo,Otten,Marchbank,Newman(Berry,Hibberd)
    Ruck: Nank,T.Boyd(Sandi)
    19 Trades 100kBank that is after trading Hampton for Dusty via Berry
    this week.
    Byes at the moment are 17,20,15 not including doughnuts.Have got a bit of work
    to do on Fwd line particularly.


  9. Current team

    Def: Laird, Docherty, Adams, Otten, N Newman, Marchbank, (J Berry, T Stewart)
    Mids: P Dangerfield, Oliver, Treloar, Beams, Fyfe, Bontempelli, Kennedy, SPP, (Barrett, Fisher, Myers)
    Rucks: Witts, Sandilands, (Strnadica)
    Fwds: Franklin, Dahlhaus, Heeney, Greene, Nankervis, Lynch, (J Parsons, B Eddy)
    Remaining trades: 16
    Remaining salary: 112.4k

    Bye structure:
    RD11: 17/30
    RD 12: 26/30
    RD 13: 22/30

    Planned trades this week:
    Out: Marchbank
    In: McInness


  10. DEF: Adams, Docherty, Laird, Hibberd, Mcgrath, Otten (Stewart, Mcniece)

    MID: T.Mitchell, Dangerfield, Heppel, Beams, J.Selwood, Fyfe, Treloar, Myers (Fisher, SPP, Barrett)

    RUC: Goldy, Soldo (Sandilands)

    FWD: Yeo, Kennedy, Dahlhaus, Franklin, Roughy, Greene (Parsons, T.Smith)

    Trades were this week as it stands Preuss -> Soldo and Balic -> Danger
    left with 3,800
    15 Trades as it stands (had 17 at start of round 10)

    Using the lovely Bye Planner it says 21 – 20 – 16 available assuming only Mcniece and T.Smith is not playing


      1. I won’t be needing to make many through the byes hopefully as i feel i have managed to spread this well and there are many round 11 players i havent got yet that i can target in round 13


  11. Def:
    Docherty Laird Shaw
    Ottens Marchbank Newman
    (Berry, Stewart)

    Danger, Pendles, Adams, JPK
    Fyfe, Treloar, Taranto, Barret
    (Rocky, Myers, Fisher)


    Macrae Dahl Buddy
    Nanks Heeney WHE
    (Balic, Eddy)

    – Looking to downgrade Ottens/Marchbank to a rookie + either getting J Selwood or Dusty for Balic


  12. This site could use an option to upload images for this kind of thing. Could this come in the near future boys?


    1. one of the things I like about this site is that I don’t have to look at the same six-month old meme over and over again. I vote no image uploads.


  13. R10 Dashing Donkeys.

    After 2 upgrades, Hampton to Dusty and SPP to Ryder. 16 trades left.

    D > Doc . Laird . K.Simpson . Shaw . Otton . Berry / Stewart. Hibbard. (NM)

    M > Neale . Danger . Sloane . J.Sellwood . Dusty . JPK . Fyfe . Steele.
    . Barrett. Fisher. Pickett.

    R > Sandi . Nank / Soldo.

    F > Doll . Greene . Ryder . Roughie . WHE . Parsons / Strnadica . Menzel (AD)

    Menzel to Greenwood next week. Leaves me about $100k.

    R11 .19 playing

    R12 .21 playing

    R13 . 17 playing

    I would love to get Bont in for my last Mid spot after his R11 Bye.

    Hibberd (NM) and Pickett although dead weight,have been invaluable in allowing me to DPP shuffle the trades I wanted to make. Hoping to sideways trade them to some decent cows to get extra players available R13.

    I really need a big score this week to make it through the SCT CUP.

    I’m currently trailing by 65 points.

    Thommos Tribe I’m coming for you. ๐Ÿ™‚


  14. So, after Balic -> Greenwood, Marchbank -> Harbrow this week, I’m looking at ->
    D: Docherty, Laird, Adams, Shaw, Harbrow, Newman (Berry, Z Guthrie)
    M: Dangerfield, Pendlebury, Murphy, Oliver, Selwood, Fyfe, SPP, Barrett, (Myers, Pickett, Maynard)
    R: Ryder, Nankervis, (Sandilands)
    F: Yeo, Macrae, Dahlhaus, Franklin, Burton, D. Cameron (Parsons, Greenwood)

    15 Trades, $17.9k, ranked just outside of 20k.

    Currently playing 16, 20, then 17 across the byes. Holding Sandilands this week, but these numbers assume he’ll stay out, along with Guthrie, Pickett, Maynard & Cameron. Sandilands playing makes round 11 much easier – one of Ryder/Nankervis can go forward again.

    Will need a downgrade to make cash. Berry / Newman for Bolton next week (via Burton) then SPP & Barrett for mid or fwd premium (possibly JPK, Riewoldt, Bontempelli) & rookie for round 12.


  15. Ok Coaches… Pimp my forward line !
    @Rnd 10 I’m toying with Hampton> Walters (but he does have a tendency to go walkabout !) or Wallis at rnd 12 ?? I don’t know, need expert guidance here !

    Def: Laird, Lloyd, Williams, Newman, McGrath, Otten ( Hampton, McNeice
    Mid: Danger, Zerrett, Pendles, Rocky, JPK, Fyfe. Menegola, SPP ,
    ( Barrett, Fox, Bolton )
    Ruc: Sandi, Grundy, ( Pruess
    Fwd : Dahlhaus, Green, Steele, Ruffy, McInnes, Parsons > cannot look at him any longer ( Eddy, A Johnson
    Trades 17, Bank 325k
    Rnd 11 -8
    Rnd 12 -6
    rnd 13 – 12

    greatly appreciate any & all ideas !


  16. I think my team is looking alright considering some of the awful premo picks I made at the start of the season.

    DEF: Docherty, Laird, Adams, Hurley, Shaw, Newman (Stewart, Vickers-Willis)

    MID: Dangerfield, Dusty, JPK, Hannebery, Fyfe, Treloar, Fisher, Myers (Rockliff, Pickett, Greenwood)

    RUCK: Nankervis, Witts (Sandilands)

    FWD: Yeo, JJK, Dahlhaus, Taranto, Heeney, Parsons (Eddy, Strnadica)

    15 trades left, so I think I may have been a little trigger happy, but we’ll see.


  17. This is my team based off the t rades Preuss> Strnadica and Marchbank > Mcinnes this week

    Def: Adams, Laird, Howe, Shaw, Otten, newman (Mcinnes, Stewart)

    Mid: Titch, Danger, Bont, JPK, Fyfe, Steele, SPP, Myers, Barrett, Fisher, Balic

    Ruck: Martin, Nank (Sandi)

    Fwd: Yeo, Macrae, Dahl, Buddy, WHE, Parsons (Strnadica, Eddy)

    387k itb to get in Sloane, Jelwood and Greenwood next week.

    planning to get rocky as my final Mid after his bye and then Robertson and Doc as my 2 defender spots.

    15 Trades left currently


  18. Prior to any trades this week.
    $80k in the bank, 18 trades remaining.

    DEF: Docherty, Laird, Adams, Howe, Marchbank, Newman (Stewart, Hibberd)

    MID: Danger, Bont, Pendles, Jelwood, JPK, Fyfe, Treloar, Barrett (Balic, Fisher, Myers)

    RUC: Sandi, Witts (Strnadica)

    FWD: Macrae, Dahl, Lynch, Nank, Heeney, Hannan (Parsons, Eddy)

    Forward rookies are absolutely woeful. Midfield rookies aren’t appreciating fast enough to trade out in the coming 2 weeks.
    My plan was to go Eddy to Lloyd this round. Then next round I want to bring in Greenwood, Bolton, and Sloane. But that would mean trading out Barrett and Hannan, who will both still have cash to make after their good scores this last week.
    Marchbank to Hibberd this week is looking tasty, for only $60k.


    1. An option to minimise the number of playing donuts in the byes could be to trade Balic and Eddy to Lloyd and Greenwood this week.


  19. B: Laird, Adams, Shaw, Tuohy, Hibberd, Newman, Ottens, Hibberd (NM)

    C: Bont, Danger, Oliver, Fyfe, Treloar, Beams, Pepper-Powell, Fisher, Balic, Myers, Pickett

    R: Sandi, Nank, Witts

    F: Dahlhouse, McCrae, Steele, Roughy, Petracca, Houston, Parsons, Eddy

    21 trades left, 424k in the kitty.

    Players available:
    Rd 11: 20, Rd 12: 25 , Rd 13: 22

    I know i need to work a lot on my forward line but I’ve got no idea what I’m going to do in regards to trades so any advice is more than welcome. I’ll be getting Greenwood in before he pops, and I’m also confident that Scharenberg will be playing before seasons end.


    1. Docherty must be the final upgrade in that backline.
      If Houston doesn’t get a game this week, then move him to MID and bring in D.Lloyd then upgrade Balic to Pendles/J.Selwood. Would look at upgrading Roughy & Petracca over the coming weeks. They just fall short of the Top FWDs…….


  20. I’m thinking of Ottens out for Harbrow and Balic out for Jelwood.

    T/U You’re all over it Hutch, go you good thing
    T/D You got rocks in your head? Pass control of your team to your 9yo daughter


  21. Def: Doc, Laird, J.Lloyd, H.Shaw, Hibberd, Newman (McGrath, Marchbank)

    Mid: Danger, Pendles, Murphy, Beams, Steele, Barrett, Myers, (SPP, Fisher, Balic)

    Ruck: Nank, Sandi (Witts)

    Fwd: Dahl, Heeney, Franklin, Greene, Rough, WHE, (Parsons, Eddy)

    Trades left: 19

    Cash in Bank: $323k

    Current bye round outs: 13, 4, 10

    I’ve tried to be a bit more conservative with my trades in the earlier rounds this year, as usually by the time the yes are over I’m well into the single figures.

    Not sure on trades this round
    Was thinking of double downing and going (if selected);

    March > McInnes

    Baltic > Stewart (via Dahl)

    Will leave me with 550k odd to start some upgrades next week.

    Alternatively, I can probably do a 1 down, 1 up, but unsure whether that’s super wise just before the byes.

    Looking forward;
    Fwds: WHE and probably Parsons (after a few more weeks) will make way for Steele and Dahl to move into the FWDs.

    Midfield: I’ll be taking the best fallen perms as they come up at their cheapest price.

    Def: I’ll be waiting on a few of those top 10s to have a crappy game so I can get them a bit cheaper. At the moment tho, it’s probably the least of my concerns.


    1. If it were my team, I’d trade Balic down to D.Lloyd (should be safe for a few weeks with the injuries at GWS) and upgrade SPP to J.Selwood/JPK or Dusty. All around the same price lately and all potential Top10 MIDs. Good luck!


      1. Cheers Schwarz.
        I’ve been back and forth all week with which rookie(s) to downgrade and whether to do an upgrade this week or next as well as whether to hold SPP through at least the first of the bye rounds……
        Thinking I should have made 2 trades last week to open up my options this week, but I guess hindsight is a great thing


  22. SC rank 400
    R11 18 R12 22 R13 16

    1. Might need some luck with upcoming rookie options, otherwise I foresee a shortage of cash in the bank over the next few weeks. Some nice PODs in there. See how Roughy goes until his Bye then re-assess……


  23. DEF: Docherty, Adams, Laird, Shaw, Harbrow, Newman (Vickers-Willis, O’Connor)
    MID: Dangerfield, J.Selwood, Fyfe, Treloar, Beams, Priddis, Kennedy, Powell-Pepper (Barrett,Fisher,Balic)
    RUC: Sandilands, Witts (Soldo)
    FWD: Macrae, Dahlhaus, Nankervis, Heeney, Cameron, Steele, (Parsons,Eddy)

    17 trades + $129,200

    Aiming for LLoyd up back and a Super Premo in middle.
    Should be able to upgrade Witts as well.
    Unlikely, but if things go really well could upgrade Shaw as well (unless he decides to play)

    Bye structures – going to downgrade Balic & Eddy next week to playing rookies (hopefully) which will give me 18/21/20 playing.
    Rd 11 won’t be flash tho.

    If Soldo doesn’t play this week I’ll take the donut.

    Plans have gone way too well so far – it can’t last ;)’


    1. I’d be looking to get Pendles and Bont into that midfield a.s.a.p. Especially at Pendles current price, great value! Otherwise it’s looking solid…….


  24. Docherty, laird, adams, shaw, hibberd, newman (otten, t.stewart)

    T.mitchell, danger, pendles, m.murphy, fyfe, treloar, barrett, taranto (florwnr, z.fisher, myers)

    Sandi, witts (d.cameron)

    Macrae, heeney, greene, nankervis, steele, WHE (balic, eddy)

    Before this weeks trades i have 20 left with 72.1k in the bank.

    Current idea is otten down to perryman, and WHE up to dusty. Leaves me with 127k and hopefully turn taranto into dalhaus after his bye.
    Not sold on dusty though…


    1. Damn! Looks like a decent position to be in with 20 trades still in hand. Your upcoming trades are pretty much what stuck out most as I read through the names. Dahlhaus is a must up forward. As for the next MID position, can’t go wrong with Dusty or J.Selwood (both around the same price right now). Good luck!


  25. DEF
    Laird Howe Shaw Otten Newman Berry (Williamson, Stewart)

    Bontempelli Dangerfield Mitchell Pendlebury Kennedy Fyfe Beams Lloyd (Barrett, Myers, Powell-Pepper)

    Jacobs Sandilands (Strnadica)

    Dahlhaus Steele Nankervis Greene Taranto Heeney
    (Hannan, Parsons)

    Bit slow in regards to getting to Premium but only sitting about 300 points outside of top 2000. Rank 10,000 Total Score 19190

    I had to cop Nank suspended, Greene suspended and Beams out still go 21 trades left and bye structure is looking pretty good plan should have 20-20-21.

    Plan over the bye is triple downgrade round 11 then bring in 5 premiums over round 12 and round 13 which will get me right back in the hunt of top 1000 goal come seasons end.


  26. DEF
    Laird Howe Hibberd Otten Newman Marchbank (Stewart, Hibberd [NTH])

    Bontempelli Dangerfield Treloar Pendlebury Kennedy Fyfe Barrett Steele (Fisher, Myers, Berry)

    Martin Sandilands (Strnadica)

    Yeo Dahlhaus Nankervis Macrae WHE Heeney
    (Balic, Parsons)

    Ranked 18k, have 18 trades left & $133k left. Probably going marchbank > Mcinnes this week and have a kitty for the byes. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated
