  1. Def: Doc, Laird, Adams, Howe, Shaw, Newman (Ryan, Scharenberg)
    Mid: Danger, Titch, Bont, JPK, Jelwood, Fyfe, Sloane, Rocky (Witherden, Cousins, Maynard)
    Ruck: Martin, Gawn (Strnadica)
    Fwd: Yeo, Macrae, Franklin, Dahlhaus, Nank, Daniher (Greenwood, Eddy)

    Only have 4 trades left with 84,600 spare.

    If Sloane isnt named I’m trading him for Ebert otherwise I think Rocky is gone. That would leave 2 trades which would allow me to downgrade Ryan and upgrade Rocky and Newman which would leave me with 0 trades left.

    Any thoughts or tips are appreciated.


    1. Hold trades. If you think you can get through finals with zero trades, the Supercoach gods would like a word with you….


    2. If you are battling for a finals spot then go for it. If you’re comfortably in the 8, then hold…..


  2. My team is not that great tbh, definitely learned some things for next year.

    DEF: Docherty, Laird, Adams, Hurley, Hibberd, Newman (Ryan, Witherden)

    MID: Danger, Mitchell, Martin, JPK, Selwood, Hannebery, Treloar, Fyfe (Myers, Pickett, Cousins)

    RUCK: Martin, Witts (Strnadica)

    FWD: Yeo, Dahlhaus, Billings, Nankervis, Lynch, Heeney (Eddy, Young)


    1. Whoops, forgot to say I have 4 trades left, and 4.3k in the bank. Also ranked 6750, my ranking has dropped nearly 3000 spots in the last few weeks due to many premo’s bad form!


    2. That’s not a bad team. Really once you get to full premium it is just aa case of who performs each week.
      Last week for instance I had Newman, Rockliff, Dahlhaus and Lynch whereas others may have had Hurley, Merrett, Dixon and Ryder and scored 200 points more than me. This week though Rockliff may finally get the 160 I’ve been waiting for and Lynch kicks 8 goals and I have the big score.


    3. I’m quite envious of your team ๐Ÿ˜‰ Perhaps open up a link between DEF/MID if you can afford it at some stage?


  3. Laird, Adams, Hurley, Simpson, Lloyd, Howe (Witherden, Ryan)
    Danger, Mitchell, Zorko, Neale, Bont, Selwood, Treloar, Fyfe (Steele, Berry, Cousins)
    Gawn, Witts (Strnadica)
    McRae, Yeo, Buddy, Dahl, Heeney, Nank (Greenwood, Bolton)

    4 trades left, 48k in bank. Not the best team ever but pretty happy. Bench is littered with decent cover and DPP swingers. I’d be much happier if I had Doc, not going to happen now though! Ideally flick a couple of mids for Dusty and Merrett and hoping Gawn pulls his finger out but I’ll just save trades for finals now.


    1. Missed the boat on Doc, I know the feeling ๐Ÿ˜‰ If you’re sitting in the 8 in your Leagues then hold off on trades till Finals………


  4. Def: S Docherty, R Laird, T Adams, K Simpson, J Lloyd, S Burgoyne, (H Shaw, O Junker)

    Mid: P Dangerfield, G Ablett, J Kennedy, M Bontempelli, S Pendlebury, J Selwood, N Fyfe, M Priddis, (A Witherden, J Cousins, J Deluca-Cardillo)

    Ruck: T Goldstein, J Witts, (L Strandica)

    Fwds: J Macrae, L Franklin, L Dahlhaus, T Lynch, J Steele, H Greenwood, (J Parsons, S Bolton)

    Remaining salary: 209,900
    Remaining trades: 4
    Rank: 24,435

    Still unsure whether to upgrade Parsons to Wingard or Heeney this week. If Wingard is selected, Steele will be upgraded to Heeney and if Heeney is selected this week, Steele will be upgraded to E Yeo.


    1. I copped the full force of the AllStars last week, getting better as the season wears on. With the Swans form, I’d take Heeney for the last six weeks but Wingard is a decent POD……


  5. Defenders

    S. Docherty K. Simpson R. Laird T.Adams Hurley Newman (L.Ryan Mcniece)


    P. Dangerfield, Pendles, D. Hannebery, Titch, N. Fyfe, Neale, Treloar, JKelly (Witherdan, Mounford, Nuff)

    Gawn, Witts (Strnadica)

    Macrae, L. Dahlhaus, Buddy, Nankervis, Yeo, Heeney (Eddy, Nuff)

    8 trades, 88K in the bank.

    Obv concerned about Pendles what’s the chances of him playing again this season?
    Ive got two options

    T/U – Hold Pendles (and hope he returns) and trade Mounford/Ryan -> Jelwood & Nyhuis
    T/D – Straight swap Pendles -> Jelwood and work on getting some forward cover!


    1. You’ve got 8 trades!!! Get Pendles and Newman out of your team as quick as you can! And yeah a cheap fwd bench option would help too. Doing well.


  6. Def :
    Doc, Laird, Hibberd, Lloyd, Rance, Adams (Ryan, Scharenberg)
    Danger, Titch, Bont, JPK, Rocky, Martin, Trelor, Greenwood (Scooter, Cousins, Witherden)
    Martin, Witts (Captain Strandica)
    Macrae, Yeo, Buddy, Nank, Lynch, Dahl (WHE, Bolton)

    8 Trades with $69K in bank
    Thinking of Trading
    Scooter to Jelwood and a Def/Mid loophole

    All suggestions welcome


    1. Definitely Selwood to Selwood! I know WHE is still getting a game but I’d look to ‘upgrade’ to a power forward that can go large on occasion. Use as loophole option with Tom Lynch at F6/F7……..someone like Tex Walker maybe? Or Billings as he gets cheaper?


  7. Def. Doch, laird, adams, howe, shaw, lloyd (ryan, perryman)
    Mids. Danger, hanners, jpk, fyfe, jelwood, titch, pendles, dusty (witherden, greenwood, cousins)
    Ruck. Martin, gawn (strnadica)
    Fwd. Buddy, dahl, yeo, walters, lynch, nank (parsons, bolton)

    5 trades and $231k

    Plan was to bring in macrae for parsons so i could shift one of lynch/ nank to bench and hold last 4 trades for finals but not sure what to do with pendles. I would prefer to hold trades but what if he misses 3 or more? I can afford a parsons to heeney, pendles to bont this week but if I wait a week bont will be out of reach and there arent many other options under $520k thatI can afford.


  8. Def: S Docherty, R Laird, T Adams, D Roberton, J Lloyd, M Hibberd (MEL) (Bench -L Ryan, M Scharenberg)
    Mid: P Dangerfield, T Mitchell, Z Merrett, M Bontempelli, J Selwood, C Oliver, A Treloar, N Fyfe (Bench – A Witherden, J Cousin, C Brown)
    Ruck: J Witts, M Gawn (Bench – L Strnadica)
    Fwd: J Macrae, E Yeo, L Dahlhaus, T Nankervis, I Heeney, T Greene (Bench – H Greenwood, E Eddy)

    4 trades left, 50k in bank. Think I’m for the run home but any comments or suggestions welcome


  9. 4 Trades left, $26k left. Did Pendles > Jelwood & Newman > Adams this week

    Def :
    Doc, Laird, Hibberd, Lloyd, Howe, Adams (Witherden, Scharenberg)

    Danger, Zerrett, Bont, JPK, Rocky, Jelwood, Treloar, Fyfe (Greenwood,Bolton,Hibberd)

    Martin, Gawn(Strandica)

    Macrae, Yeo, Dahl , Nank, Lynch, Heeney (C.Brown, Parsons)


  10. 9 Trades, $25, 700 remaining.

    DEF: Docherty, Laird, Adams, Lloyd, Shaw, McDonald, (Witherden, Hibberd)

    MID: Dangerfield, Zorko, Pendlebury, Fyfe, Treloar, Bontempelli, Beams, Rockliff, (Greenwood, Mountford, Deluca-Cardillo)

    RUC: Witts, Gawn, (Cameron)

    FWD: Yeo, Macrae, Heeney, Dahlhaus, Josh J Kennedy, Nankervis (Cox, Eddy)

    Sitting just inside the top 20k, and not having much in the way of leagues to play for, all I want to do is to do as best I can overall.

    I’m seriously considering trading Dangerfield to Selwood, and using the cash to upgrade someone like Mountford, even if Dangerfield plays tomorrow night. It is a huge gamble to even consider, but Dangerfield was hurt earlier in the year which coincided with a dip in form. Of course, as he showed last week, if anyone can score 150 on one leg, it is Dangerfield.

    Alternatively, the seemingly safer option is to trade Pendlebury to Selwood, at the same time, swinging Cox down back, Hibberd into the midfield and Deluca up forward, opening up a good bench coverage system. (As an aside, I wish you could make no-trade trades and rearrange your substitutions.)

    A third option would be to trade Greenwood and Mountford to get Selwood, but at the cost of having a relatively weaker forward line support structure.


  11. Doch, laird, adams, hibberd, lloyd, newman (shaw, perryman)

    Danger, dusty, titchell, neale, treloar, pendles, murphy, steele ( z.fisher, cousins, witherden)

    Grundy, witts (cameron)

    Heeney, macrae, dalhaus, greene, nank, lynch (greenwood, eddy)

    9 trades left, 99.4k in bank, ranked 2000

    This week thinking newman down to nyhuis and fisher up to jelwood. Followed by shaw up to a hurley type next week or maybe steele to zerret


    1. Is that Jack Steele at M8? Need to do something about that ASAP. with 9 trades left you could use 5 in the next 3 weeks (2 down, 3 up) and buy a premo def, mid and fwd and have excellent bench cover!


  12. 4 trades. 6542. $286k.

    Doc / Laird / Simpson / Hibberd / Lloyd / Withers /: (Hibberd/Ryan)

    Danger / Dusty / Sloane / Neale / Fyfe / JPK / Ward / Jellwood /: ( Berry/Pickett/Bolton )

    Ryder / Gawn ( Darcy)

    Doll / Macrea / Greene / Nank / Lynch / Greenwood / (St**!#ca / Parsons)

    Parsons is finally going for Adams to complete my back line.
    This will swing Withers to Mid bench.

    Only 3 trades left (Cripps killed me)but will have $120K for a possible Greenwood upgrade come finals.


  13. DEF: Docherty, Laird, Adams, Lloyd, Hibberd, Williams (L. Ryan, T. Stewart)

    MID: Dangerfield, Merrett, Bontempelli, Pendlebury, J. P. Kennedy, J. Selwood, Hannebery, Parker (Greenwood, Cousins, Hibberd (NM))

    RUC: Jacobs, Witts (Strnadica)

    FWD: Yeo, Heeney, Franklin, Dahlhaus, Nankervis, Steele (Parsons, C. Brown)

    Before anyone asks, the answer is yes, I am aware that I basically have the whole Sydney in my team. This wasn’t intentional, but, given Sydney’s recent form, this may not be such a bad thing! It sure as hell beats having the Collingwood midfield ๐Ÿ˜›

    Trades left: Zero.

    Remaining salary: $18,800 (not that it matters now)

    Plans: Hope for no injuries, and start planning for next year.


  14. DEF: Docherty, Laird, Roberton, Lloyd, Shaw, Newman (Johannisen, Ryan)
    MID: Dangerfield, Martin, Bontempelli, Pendlebury, Adams, Treloar, Fyfe, S.Selwood (Witherden, Bolton, Cousins)
    RUC: Kreuzer, Martin (Strnadica)
    FWD: Macrae, Yeo, Franklin, Dahlhaus, Nankervis, Steele (Greenwood, Parsons)

    7 Trades left, $5k.
    Was going to go Ryan – Junker, Newman/S.Selwood – J.Selwood then look at getting Heeney in for Parsons. But with Pendlebury’s injury I’m not sure whether to trade him or not (I only bought him a week ago!). Thoughts?


    1. Considering: Ryan-Junker & Parsons-Jelwood.
      Gives me the following with 5 trades and 25k:
      DEF: Docherty, Laird, Roberton, Lloyd, Shaw, Newman (Johannisen, Junker)
      MID: Dangerfield, Martin, Bontempelli, Pendlebury, Adams, Jelwood, Treloar, Fyfe (S.Selwood, Witherden, Cousins)
      RUC: Kreuzer, Martin (Strnadica)
      FWD: Macrae, Yeo, Franklin, Dahlhaus, Nankervis, Steele (Greenwood, Bolton)


  15. DEF: Docherty, Laird, Adams, Hibberd, Harbrow, Newman (Ryan, Scharenberg)
    MID: Dangerfield, Titchell, JPK, Pendlebury, Jelwood, Treloar, Fyfe, Neale (Witherden, Balic, Bolton)
    RUC: Martin, Goldy(Strnadica)
    FWD: Macrae, Yeo, Franklin, Dahlhaus, Nankervis, Lynch(Greenwood, Cox)

    7 trades / 40K / Ranked 2541

    This week I have some issues with Pendles, Goldy, Ryan and Cox out.

    Round 18: Downgrade Ryan to Deluca-Cardillo and upgrade Newman to Hurley. If Danger is a late out I will trade Pendles this week instead forcing me to keep Newman.

    Round 19: Assess Pendles and Goldy situations and plan accordingly.

    Really need to strengthen my forward line and defence with Harbrow and Lynch as weak links.


  16. DEF: Docherty, Laird, Adams, Roberton, Hibberd, Rance (Ryan, Witherden)

    MID: Danger, Dusty, Merrett, JPK, Selwood, Bont, Treloar, Fyfe (Sloane, Hibberd, Cousins)

    RUCK: Ryder, Witts (Strnadica)

    FWD: Yeo, Macrae, Dahlhaus, Buddy, Nankervis, Heeney (Bolton, Brown)

    4 trades; $100.1k in the bank reserved for injury/further upgrade. Sitting just inside the top 100. This week I traded Newman into Roberton and Greenwood into Merrett. I’ve got an eye on Kreuzer, and Hurley, but happy where my team is at too loophole through to finals and maybe launch into the top 50. Any suggestions?


  17. DEF: Docherty, Laird, Hibberd, Adams, Shaw, Witherden (L. Ryan, Larkey)
    MID: Dangerfield, T. Mitchell, J. Kennedy, Neale, Fyfe, Treloar, J. Selwood, Lloyd (Pendlebury, Mountford, Cousins)
    RUC: Martin, Nankervis (Darcy)
    FWD: Macrae, Greene, Yeo, Heeney, Dalhaus, Greenwood (Eddy, Strnadica)

    6 Trades | 6.8k | 29,485

    For this week, I’ve traded:
    Newman > Larkey
    Scharenberg > T. Mitchell

    Keeping Pendlebury in my team for now just to see how things go. If he’s fine for the very near future, I’ll have back in my MIDS and move Lloyd in DEF. Witherden can then be my D7. If not, Pendles will be the next to go.

    Then all I would need to upgrade would be Greenwood in my FWD line.

    Please let me know if i need to put my attention elsewhere in my team.



  18. Def: Doch, Adams, Laird, Tuohy, Lloyd, Witherden (Ryan, Scharenberg)

    Mid: Danger, Pendles, Gaz, Dusty, JSelwood, Bont, Fyfe, Ross (Greenwood, Cousins, Brown)

    Ruck: Kreuzer, Gawn (Strnadica)

    Fwd: Macrae, Yeo, Dahl, Lynch, Heeney, Buddy (Bolton, Eddy)

    8 trades, $195,500k

    Completly lost on what to do or if anything. With Gaz out as well it hurts my depth but can get bolton if he plays.

    Any thoughts on what to do would be very helpful and highly appreciated.



  19. Harry.

    You could look at trading Cousins to C Glass $117.300.(Hawks) M/D.

    Then you will have a DPP link with your defence. Allowing you to move Witherden onto Mids bench to cover Gary.

    Then I would upgrade Ryan to a premo Defender.

    You should have about $500K to spend.

    These guys are both great value.

    M. Hibberd (Melb) $474.100

    D. Roberton (Saints) $442.300

    Good luck with the rest of your season.


    1. Thanks Freo Tragic your an absolute genius that would be perfect

      So would you keep both Pendles and Gaz at this stage? (Trading one would mean i get a defender next week instead)

      Thanks heaps


      1. Thats a tough one Harry.

        You know if you trade one they’re likely to come back next week and pump out a big score.

        Unless you really need to win this week I would hold both.

        Saying that you have trades in hand so the options there.

        Go with your gut.


        1. Yeah it is inevitable they will go off next week

          Okay i will have a look, thanks for your help and good luck this week!


  20. Team after this weeks trades:
    Def: Simpson, Laird, Lloyd, Howe, Hibberd, Shaw (Scharenberg, Ryan)
    MID: Danger, Titch, Zerrett, Dusty, Bont, Fyfe, Treloar, Jelwood (Greenwood, Witherden, Cousins)
    Ruck: Witts, Ryder (Strmadica)
    FWD: Yeo, Macrae, Heeney, JJK, Wingard, Dahl (Nank, Florent)

    Will have $165.1k and 6 trades left, comfortably top of my league so only future lock is bringing in Doch for finals, who for is the question..
