  1. B: Shaw, Adams, Laird, Hampton, Otten, Vickers-Willis (Stewart, Guthrie)

    M: Dangerfield, Selwood, Treloar, Fyfe, T Mitchell, Beams, O’Meara, Powell-Pepper (Hibberd, Parfitt, Atley)

    R: Gawn, Sandilands (Strnadica)

    F: Riewoldt, Dahlhaus, Roughead, Nankervis, Taranto, Pickett (Cameron, Eddy)


    1. Nice to see there’s still some love for Gawn. If Spencer isn’t named, there’s gonna be panic trying to squeeze him back in.


  2. Current line up any advise would be great
    Def Adams, laird, j loyd, Hampton, marchbank, otten (vickers-Willis, Stewart)
    Mid hanerbry, Selwood, trelour, Fyfe, Stevens, beams, omers, Powell-pepper (Barrett, Pickett, Hibbard)
    Rucks nankervis, Sandilands (English)
    Forwards jjk, dalihouse, franklin, Roughead, Steele, eddy (parfitt, Houstan)

    $74 in the kitty, any thoughts on what I Could do would be great cheers


    1. Is that Jack Steven or Koby Stevens? Steven could be an inspired pick – was an elite a few years ago. Stevens is a spud who is on his third club, because he’s rubbish.


  3. DEF:
    Docherty, Shaw, Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, Vickers-Willis (newman, stewart)

    Dangerfield, Pendlebury, Hannebery, Trealor, Fyfe, JOM, Powell-Pepper (Barrett, Wigg, Bayok)

    Grundy, Nankervis (strnadica)

    FWD: NRoo, J.Kennedy, Dahlhaus, McCarthy, Bowes, Florent, (Pickett, Eddy)

    $10.2k in the bank.

    *Rookies most likely will change*

    Thoughts and suggestions? Thanks!


    1. Interested in people’s comments.
      I like the look of Vickers-Willis and many of us have him on the bench but in all of the Best 22 discussions for North he doesn’t appear.

      How soon will he get a game?


  4. Back again with a new team:

    DEF: S. Docherty, H. Shaw, R. Laird, C. Marchbank, C. Hampton, E. Vickers-Willis (N. Newman, T. Stewart)

    MID: P. Dangerfield, J.P. Kennedy, D. Hannebery, A. Treloar, M. Bontempelli, N. Fyfe, J. Bowes, S. Powell-Pepper (J. Barret, J. Pickett, M. Hibberd)

    RUCK: A. Sandilands, J. Witts (L. Strnadica)

    FWD: N. Riewoldt, J.J Kennedy, L. Dahlhaus, T. Nankerivs, C. McCarthy, D. Butler (D. Houston, B. Eddy)

    As always, any and all advice/criticism is more than welcome 🙂


  5. Shaw Laird Marchbank Hampton Logue Otten (Stewart EVW)

    Danger Hanners Selwood Treloar Ward Fyfe Beams SPP (Pickett Hibberd Barrett)

    Goldy Grundy (Strnadica)

    Reiwoldt Franklin Roughead
    Taranto Parfitt Butler (Eddy Cameron)

    $10k left in the warchest going deep in the mids as there is not many rookies on offer. Thin in the backline but deliberate as I hope to make most of my cash generation back there. Structure not locked in but trying something different.


  6. Def- Doc, Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, Otten, Vickers-W (Hibberd, Stewart)

    Mid- Danger, Pendles, JPK, Treloar, Fyfe, Beams, Taranto, Powell-Pepper (Barrett, Miles, Parfitt)

    Ruck- Goldy, Nank (Witts)

    Fwd- Riewoldt, Dahl, Macrae, Rough, K Turner, Houston (Black, Eddy)

    $44,100 in the bank with the option of putting Dan Butler into the forward somewhere as he has been confirmed to be playing Thursday night

    All thoughts welcome


    1. Good team, like the structure particularly Witts as a cash generator/ruck back up and not a starter. Think you just need to have a back up plan in case Stewart, Vickers-W or Hibberd don’t get picked such as an extra def premo instead of forward.


      1. The thing is there are very little rookies in the forward line that I would put on the field with confidence whereas in the backline all rookies will play games and should score well and Melican could possibly get a game at the Swans R1 if all goes pear-shaped come Thursday night selections


  7. I’ve got 102k cash left over and I don’t know what to do with it pls help! Could downgrade Gawn and try get nankervis in, or I could try get another premo midfielder. Not sure any ideas would be helpful. Thanks.

    Def: Shaw, Adams, Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, Vickers-Willis (Hibberd, Stewart)

    Mid: Danger, JPK, Selwood, Treloar, Fyfe, Beams, JOM, Powell-Pepper (Barrett, Wigg, Deluca-Cardillo)

    Ruck: Gawn, Sandilands (Cameron)

    Fwd: Dahlhaus, Macrae, Roughead, Taranto, Miles ,Eddy (Pickett, Parfitt)


  8. First time poster guys – so go hard but fair!

    DEF: Docherty, Shaw, Laird, Hampton, EVW, Otten, (Stewart, Z. Guthrie)

    MID: Danger, Pendlebury, Hannebery, Fyfe, Beams, O’Meara, Taranto, SPP (Parfitt, Wigg, Bolton)

    RUCKS: Gawn, Goldstein (Cameron)

    FWD: N. Riewoldt, Dahlhaus, Nankervis, Steele, Bowes, Pickett (Houston, Eddy)

    23K in the bank.

    Realise I’ve gone heavy on Rucks and light on in the FWD line – just throwing it out there as an option. Reckon I can survive such a move or am I daft?


    1. Hard to be too critical. You are paying top dollar for most of your premiums other than Fyfe and Beams. I think Bowes and Wigg are questionable selections & that Guthrie and Bolton are 100/1 shots to play rd1.


  9. G’day Community, always enjoy the feedback. Please let me have it.
    Def: Simpson, Laird, Shaw, Marchbank, Hampton, Otten, Emg Vickers Willis, Guthrie

    Mids: Dangerfield, Treloar, Fyfe, Bontempelli, Omeara, Swallow, Powell Pepper, Parfitt, Emg Florent, Pickett, Hibberd

    Ruc: Sandilands, Hickey, Emg Strnadica

    Fwds: Riewoldt, Dalhaus, Franklin, Greene, Hoskin Elliott, Eddy, Emg McCarthy, Simpkin

    Still weighing up Greene, also like Steele for this spot. Think he has potential to score just as well for lower starting price. Taking a punt on the Rucks with new third man up rule. Presently 168,600 left in kitty


    1. Simmo – solid, but coming off a career best season. You’ll be able to get him cheaper.

      Bont – injured during preseason.

      Hickey – not a premium, stepping stone or rookie. Either go up to a prem or down to witts.

      Greene – was B&F and All Aus last year, and still didn’t produce premium numbers. Won’t improve enough to be top 6.


  10. Changed things around a few times – hopefully this will be the final version – pending rookies of course. Would love some feedback…

    DEF – Laird – Adams – Tuoey – Marchbank – Hampton – Vickers-Willis – Otten – Stewart

    MID – Danger – Hanners – Treloar – Fyfe – T.Mitchell – Beams – O’Meara – Powell-Pepper – Barrett – Hibberd – Parfill

    RUCK – Nankervis – Sandi – Strndica

    FWD – Dahlhaus – Green – Ryder – Roughy – Steele – Taranto – Eddy – Butler


  11. Def – Shaw, Adams, Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, Otten (Vickers-Willis, Stewart)

    Mid – Dangerfield, Kennedy, Treloar, Fyfe, Watson, Beams, O’Meara, Powell-Pepper (Hibberd, Picket, Barrett)

    Ruc – Smith, Sandilands (Strnadica)

    Fwd – Riewoldt, Dahlhaus, Roughead, Nankervis, Taranto, McCarthy (Parfitt, Eddy)

    Smith and Watson may become Gawn and Swallow if Gawn named as sole ruck.


    1. Dont see much upside with Smith, and Watson has been mentioned playing forward, so unlikely to score at his previous levels.


      1. Thanks Chips

        Turned Smith to S Martin for now but will probably go Gawn/D Swallow in place of S Martin/Watson. Just concerned about the impact of Gawn sharing ruck duties.


  12. Def- Shaw, Adams, Laird, Lloyd, Hampton, Otten (Stewart, Z.Gutherie)
    Mid- Dangerfield, Treloar, Bontempelli, Fyfe, T.Mitchell, Beams, O’Meara, Powell-Pepper (Barrett, Hibberd, Parfitt)
    Ruck- Sandilands, Witts (Cameron)
    Fwd- Dahlhaus, Macrae, Roughead, Nankervis, Steele, Pickett (Houston, Eddy)

    If either Gawn or Goldy are named as sole ruckman I may try to fit one in by dropping Lloyd and Witts, any suggestions are welcome!


  13. Am I crazy going with this ruck system? Also should I go Swallow to a cheapie then upgrade Mills to a premo DEF?

    Def – Adams, Laird, Mills, Marchbank, Hampton, Otten (Vickers-Willis, Stewart)

    Mid – Dangerfield, Pendles, Treloar, Fyfe, Hanners, Beams, O’Meara, Powell-Pepper (Hibberd, Swallow, Barrett)

    Ruc – Sandilands , Witts (Strnadica)

  14. DEF; Shaw, Vince, Lloyd, Marchbank, Hampton, Otten (EVW, Stewart)

    MID; Danger, Pendles, Kennedy, Bont, Fyfe, Beams, JOM, SPP (Florent, Barrett, Hibberd)

    RUCK; Gawn, Sandi, Strnadica

    FWD; Dahlhaus, Buddy, Nank, Taranto, Bowes, Butler (Parfitt, Eddy)

    $76.9k left over. Will likely use this on finalising rookies and possibly pendles to treloar depending on injury and then upgrade elsewhere will a bit of cash.

    Thoughts are wanted, be harsh 🙂

  16. Any thoughts? I feel like I’m missing something.

    RUC; Gawn, Sandilands (Strnadica)

    FWD; Dahlhaus, Macrae, Caddy, Roughhead, Nankervis, McCarthy (Pickett, Eddy)

    117k left over.


    1. Good side mate. Like the heppell and touhy picks. Depending on rookies I’d try and get Hibberd in your mids so you can have a bit more flexibility. Maybe McCartny down to a Houston or Butler and upgrade caddy to a genuine premo. Caddy hasn’t been great in the pre season.


  17. DEF: Shaw, Laird, Howe, Marchbank, Hampton, Vickers-Willis, (Melican, Stewart)

    MID: Dangerfield, Kennedy, Selwood, Treloar, Fyfe, Beams, Omeara, S.PP (Barrett, Freeman, Atley)

    DEF: Dalhaus, Macrae, Roughhead, Nankervis, Steele, Taranto (Parfitt, Eddy)

    91k spare
    Is my forward line to expensive or are there any other glaring problems?
    Thanks in advance.


    1. Freeman is highly unlikely R1. He hasn’t even played much at VFL level yet and was unsighted in the intra club or JLT games. I very much doubt that the Saints will be rushing him in any time soon.

    Ruck: S Martin, A Sandilands (L Strnadica)

    Fwd: L Dahlhaus, T Greene, J Caddy, J Roughead, J Pickett, D Butler (B Eddy, D Houston)

    Taken Howe over teammate Adams just due to injury and reliability, Howe averaged over 100 when sent back last year and confident he can be a top 6 backman as well as the other two premiums. Liking T Greene as a pod this year and unsure on Caddy, he could be a good pod or I’m able to trade up to Macrae or trade down to Nankervis and then Martin to Goldstein. Any thoughts on the team would be great and much appreciated! Cheers! GL all!

    1. You are pretty heavy of Ruck/Fwds Robdog. Possibly a good POD some weeks, but on the weeks they may score below average, you could end up falling behind. Great team though you’ll be hard to knock off!

    If Spencer doesn’t get names I’ll have to find a way to get Gawn back in, but other than that I’m pretty happy. Any advice would be appreciated.


    1. I wouldn’t rest on your R1 selection laurels of Spencer to determine if Gawn is a lock or not mate…

      If you bring Gawn in after he drops drops in price, yes there’s a $30-60K saving; but it’s a wasted trade and money better used elsewhere to upgrade rookies around mid season. On the flipside, adding Gawn makes your team look more similar than different to others…so there’s a bit of food for thought 😉

    36K in the bank, still tossing between who I want R1 and rookies, honestly think Viney is a gun and could average 100-107 this year and if not his at an okay price to upgrade.

    * Rookies subject to change… in fact everyone is 😉
    * First year ever not starting Pendles, and i’m still not sure about it…
    * I think i can only go 1 of O’meara or Swallow.
    * If Spencer is named rd 1, i’m tempted to downgrade Gawn to Goldy or Grundie… Not sure that Witts is the smartest option as I can see Nicholls sharing the minutes.
    * I like J. Steele as he looks as though he will finally have a chance to play a full season, but is an awkward price

    1. Hey Andrew.

      Your midfield is where you need to score most of your points. Starting three rookies there is pretty risky. I would trade T Lynch out and move Taranto forward. Then maybe consider a fallen premium like Beams to strengthen your mids.

      I will be looking at bringing in T Lynch after his Round 9 bye.

      Best of luck.

    – Chopping and changing over Grundy and Hickey for R1

    1. I had Hickey as the swing ruckman last year, he had 1 or 2 absolute blinders and struggled to ton up with the rest of the season, was worth the money at 330k odd and had DPP but I wouldn’t take him as a sole ruck and 460k , there’s no upside.

    Dahlhaus, Macrae, Roughead, Nankervis, Tarranto, Houston (Butler, Eddy)



    1. Have gone over Byes and i’m pretty happy with it first premo upgrades will be round 11 players

      Round 11: 4
      Round 12: 4
      Round 13: 8


  48. Can someone tell me why no one is picking Kolodjashnij?
    Had a troublesome year due to illness last year and still managed to play the 19 games after coming off an average of 90 in his second year, racking up 30 touches in his last JLT game and potentially getting back to full fitness.
    Bit of a risk, but if people are selecting the likes of Lloyd and Tuohy which are more expensive and equal the risk then i’d just like to know why no one is considering him. Please discuss friends.


  49. Hey guys,
    Not to sure about my team but I’m pretty happy with it. Left some money in bank for changes when teams are announced.

    DEF: Shaw, Laird, Touhy, Marchbank, Hampton, Otten (EVW, Guthrie)

    MID: Danger, Neale, Zorko, Fyfe, Titchell, Beams, Oliver, Swallow (SPP, Barrett, Fox)

    RUCK; Hicky, Nank (Preuss)

    FWD; Green, Lecras, Roughy, Steele, Pickett, Eddy (Parfitt. Houston)

    Remaining salary


  50. DEF: Shaw, Laird, Howe, Marchbank, Hampton, Vickers-Willis (Hibberd, Stewart)
    MID: Danger, Hanners, Treloar, Fyfe, Macrae, Beams, O’Meara, SPP (Barrett, Pickett, Atley)
    RUC: Sandi, Witts (Strandica)
    FWD: Roo, Dahl, Lynch, Roughy, Nankervis, Eddy (Butler, Parfitt)

    $72k leftover

    Rookies are subject to change, I’ve got Macrae in the midfield as it was either him or Heppell that I was tossing up but I figure its better having Macrae and moving him to the forward line (as he likely be top 6-10 fwd) and upgrading a mid at some stage rather than having Heppell who likely wont be a top 10 mid and can’t be moved forward. Hopefully can do the switch in time for round 9 when Lynch will have the bye.


  51. Hey everyone
    Would like some opinions and feedback on my team.cheers
    Changes I’ve made from last team Out:Rance in Tuohy
    Out-Swallow. IN- Josh Kelly. Out-Pendles In-Treloar.

    Ruck: Gawn, Sandilands (Witts)

    Fwd: Dalhaus, Franklin, Roughead, Nankervis, Taranto, Bowes(Eddy, Parfitt)

    Still have $119400 in the bank.


  56. Shaw, Adams, Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, Otten (Vickers-Willis, Guthrie)

    Dangerfield, Hannebery, Treloar, Bontempelli, Fyfe, Beams, Taranto, Powell-Pepper (Hibberd, Atley, Pickett)

    Grundy, Sandilands (Strnadica)

    Dahlhaus, Macrae, Greene, Nankervis, Hoskin-Elliot, Parfitt (Cameron, Eddy)

    $11.5k Remaining


      1. I agree on Eddy, but wouldn’t make the decision of non-selection based on 1 game, let alone the first of the season… Its a wasted trade later to bring him in if you arent trading OUT an injured player. His rock bottom price means he has better scoring potential, and as a mature aged SANFL recruit, he’s too hard to go past (plus, you arent facing anyone for league bragging rights in R1!)


  57. I want to get Cripps (and, to a lesser extent, Treloar) into my team, but I’m not sure who to cut to bring him in.

    My current midfield:
    Dangerfield, Pendlebury, JPK, Selwood, Fyfe, Beams, O’Meara, SPP.

    I have $167K left in the bank (some of which I would like to keep for rookie insurance and/or accelerated upgrades).


    1. I would cut Pendles due to injury likeliness over the JLT series. He is a definite scorer but cripps looks far more fit to score massive over SP


      1. Pendles is under an injury cloud ever other week.

        In the last 6 years, he’s been the competitions 2nd, 4th, 3rd, 2nd, 2nd and 1st highest scorer.

        Do you really want to be dropping that? JPK or Selwood for mine.


          1. Last 5 years
            Selwood: 106 games, 114.8 average, 12166 total points
            JPK: 107 games, 112.6 avaerage, 12047 total points

            I would be holding Jelwood purely based on his more friendly bye but there really isn’t a right or wrong answer on this one I’m afraid.


            1. If I do bring in Cripps, I’ll drop one of Jelwood or JPK. I’m not sure which one… Selwood does have a better bye, but it would feel weird not starting with one of the Sydney mids. I’ll also bring Treloar in if Pendlebury somehow misses round 1.


  58. Def –
    R.Laird Z.Williams C.Mills
    K.Kolodjasshnij C.Hampton A.Otten
    (M.Hibberd T.Stewart)

    Mid –
    The danger A.Treloar N.Fyfe J.Kelly (GWS)
    J.Lloyd D.Beams J.O’Meara D.Swallow
    (S.PP J.Barrett N.Freeman)

    Ruck –
    T.Goldstein A.Sandilands

    Forwards –
    L.Dahlaus T.Lynch D.Smith
    J.Roughead T.Taranto B.Eddy
    (J.Pickett T.Miles)

    Cash cows
    Plenty of breakthrough players

    A few players are Injury prone


  59. I may lost the plot a bit so hoping to get some advice from the community

    DEF: Simpson, Shaw, Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, Otten (Vickers-Willis, Stewart)
    MID: Dangerfield, Selwood, Treloar, Fyfe, Mitchell, Crouch, Taranto, Powell-Pepper (Barrett, Pickett, Parfitt)
    RUC: Grundy, Sandilands (Cameron)
    FWD: Riewoldt, Dalhaus, Roughead, Nankervis, Turner, Butler (Houston, Eddy)
    Bank: $7,800

    Mitchell and Crouch I feel have the potential to increase on their average by 10-15 points. Not sold on Grundy as R1 yet.

    Players who could be in this team are JPK, Priddis Beams, Docherty, Adams, Steele & Witts

    Any thought?





    #Only $4000 left
    My only change would be trading out Steele for Nankervis which would mean I would have to trade down somewhere. Any suggestions?


  61. DEF: Docherty, Shaw, Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, Vickers-Willis (Otten, Stewart)
    MID: Dangerfield, Selwood, Treloar, Fyfe, JPK, O’Meara, D. Swallow, Powell-Pepper (Barrett, Hibberd, Atley)
    RUC: Grundy, Nankervis (Strnadica)
    FWD: Riewoldt, Dalhaus, Roughead, Steele, Pickett, Houston (Butler, Eddy)
    Bank: $79,700


  62. DEF: Shaw, Adams, Laird, Hampton, Otten, VickerW (Hibberd, Stewart)

    FWD: Dahlhaus, Franklin, Petracca, Roughead, Taranto, Eddy (Black, Begley)

    83k left.


  63. Final Team 2017: Ready to go?

    Def: Shaw / Laird / Adams / Marchbank / Hampton / Stewart

    EVW / Otten

    Mids: Danger / Pendles / JPK / Treloar / Fyfe / Beams / JOM / Swallow

    SPP / Barrett / Pickett

    Rucks: Witts / Sandi


    Forwards: Dahl / Macrae / Nank / Roughy / Florent / Turner

    Parfitt / Eddy


    1. rucks are way to risky for my likings: witts yet to prove himself as a decent or even alright player (would be better as a cash cow on bench, if anything), and Sandi being 34 and injury prone.

    Goldstein – Sandilands



    Dahlhouse – T.Lynch – Greene

    Nankervis – McCarthy – Butler

    J.Pickett – B. Eddy

    140k in the bank

    Any suggestions would be well appreciated. I’ve been tossing up on turning Libba in for Jaeger O’meara but I’m still on the fence.


    1. That midfield worries me Lachy.

      Martin could be a handy POD, especially his bye, but Heppell looked underwhelming in JLT shaking out his cobwebs. Won’t hurt you if you don’t start him (chech out Father Dougals Prodical Son article on him). Libba was good last year due to his low starting price, to expensive this year and won’t be a top MID and will need to be traded out.

      Your entire bench will likely not be playing Rd1 either.

      Suggestion – lighten up the defense (1 premo to many IMO) and throw it all onto this line. This should give you a pretty balanced structure.

      Love the T.Lynch pick in the FWDs, think he’ll be awesome this year but just to awkwardly priced for me to start with NRoo and Dahl already in my side.


  66. How did we go? Def, Shaw,Adams, Tuohy, burton, Marchbank, Hampton, Stewart, vickers! Mids, Danger, Treloar, Bontebok, Fyfe, Beams,Steele, omeara, Swallow, Powell pepper, Barrett, Pickett! Rucks, Ryder, Sandi, Cameron! Fwds, Dalhaus, buddy, rough, nankervis, hoskinelliot,, schoenmakers, black, eddy!


  67. Hi all,

    only 2nd year playing and don’t have too much of an idea as I dont follow AFL much. Any help would be great!

    Docherty, Shaw,Laird,Marchbank, Hampton, Guthrie,Otten, Vicker-Willis

  69. Rate my team and feedback would be awesome

    Def: Shaw, Adams, Laird, Tuohy, Hampton, Otten (EVW, Stewart)

    Mid: Dangerfield, Pendlbury, Treloar, Fyfe, Beams, Clayton Oliver, Swallow, SPP (Barrett, Hibberd, Pickett)

    Rucks: Gawn, Sandilands (Witts)

    Fwd: Dahlhaus, Macrae, Roughead, Taranto, Houston, Parfitt (Eddy, Butler)

    Tuohy will have a big year, not many choices in the backline, not much of a risk.

    Clayton Oliver, may be bias as i am a melbourne supporter, but i watched him closely in the last few weeks, he will play in the centre, a big clearance machine, will rack up lots of points. Will get over $500K after first couple of rounds.

    Gawn, surprisedly became more of a pod in the last few weeks, will be top 2 by seasons end, Spencer will not play every game. Gawn is worth a coin.

    Had a few left over money so upgraded a rookie ruckman to Witts. Witts will play all year. Wont score big but will reach over $400K then trade him off later in the season

    $14,400 left in the salary


  70. DEF: t.adams r.laird m.hurley c.marchbank j.thurlow c.hampton (e.vickers-willis t.stewart)

    MID: p.dangerfield j.kennedy n.fyfe n.jones j.watson d.beams j.o’meara d.swallow (s.powell-pepper j.pickett m.hibberd)

    RCK: s.martin a.sandilands (d.cameron)

    FWD: l.dahlhaus j.macrae j.roughead w.hoskin-elliott t.taranto d.butler (l.strnadica b.eddy)

    $210,700 in the bank so there is a lot of tinkering that can happen.
    not confident on many of the rookies so i have gone heavy on mid-pricers who i think can take the next step.

    all feedback welcome


  71. Gone for a ratherleft field team would love some feedback. I’m fairly happy with it but I know its an odd team to look at.
    Defense is pretty stock standard, Midfield has a few players I hope will be POD, Rucks have caused most of my problems with my team, Forwards Pretty standard but hoping LeCras could be a difference. Was really wanted C. Oliver in my team but deciding between him and Steele went with Steele.

    DEF; Shaw, Laird, Tuohy, Marchbank, Hampton, Otten (EVW, Guthrie)
    MID: Danger, Neale, Zorko, Fyfe, Tichell, Beams, Steele, SPP (Barrett, Parfitt, Fox)
    RUCK: Hicky, Sandi (Preuss)
    FWD: Dalhaus, Greene, LeCras, Roughy, Taranto, Pickett (Eddy, Houston)

    Remaining salary


  72. Def: Docherty, Laird, Lloyd, Marchbank, Hampton, EVW (Otten, McGrath)

    Mid: Dangerfield, Treloar, Fyfe, Heppell, Beams, O’meara, Taranto, Florent (SPP, Barrett, Hibberd)

    Ruck: Gawn, Ryder (Strnadica)

    Fwd: Dahlhaus, Gunston, Greene, Nankervis, Ainsworth, Pickett (Butler, Parfitt)

    $33.7k left over. Not long now… what’s everyone’s thoughts – Have I gone too many risky high / mid-pricers? Thinking i’ll swap McGrath and Ainsworth based on who gets named tomorrow.

    Best of luck!


  73. Feedback on the side would be appreciated. Cheers guys. (10k left over)

    Def… Simpson, Shaw, Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, Vickers-Willis EMG Otten, Stewart
