Welcome back to the TEAM for 2019! Where every Coach on the SCT site can shape the TEAM to their liking………
ROUND SIX SUMMARY
The TEAM came in about par for Rd6 with a score of 2113. We’re still hovering around the 10k mark in overall rankings. A big shout out to all the TEAM Leagues………if memory serves me correctly (and I’ll have ‘League Updates’ ready to go for Friday) there are currently seven TEAM Leagues in the Top500! Not bad considering we’re only allowed one entry per team……well done, Coaches!
OK, Coaches……down to business………I’m a little torn this week. Since we have 28 trades still in hand, I’d love to start upgrading……especially with a question mark over Whitfield. The question is who? And how?
Ideally I’d love to upgrade Collins in DEF but I can’t raise enough cash to get him to Hurn/Lloyd……..
I’d love to upgrade Butters to Fyfe (or another Fallen Premium) but keep falling short with funds.
The only viable trade I can see is Drew(PTA) downgraded to Bolton(RIC) who I expect to come back in this week, which would leave enough cash to upgrade Butters (PTA), via DPP, to a Worpel (HAW) or Caleb Daniel (WBD) type of FWD. Or, dare I say it, Rockliff (PTA) in the midfield?
I’m open to any trade suggestions…….just keep in mind, that we want to bring in keepers, not just any old options. Let me know in the comments below. The Coaching Staff will give us an idea in which direction to move in through the thumbs UP/DOWN function. So what moves would you make with our TEAM?
**SURPRISE – I’ve been doing a little tinkering in my spare time and in future, we might just get the TEAM happening in Video Format starting next week. Stay tuned for that…….**
**UPDATE at 7pm on 2/5/19**
Now that teams have dropped, what trade suggestions have you got for the TEAM? Are we going to fall short in the backline? Polls will be up in the morning……..thank you, Coaches!
**UPDATE at 9am on 3/5/19**
Like I mentioned earlier, I’m bullish about trading this week……especially given we have 28 trades in hand and Whitfield will be missing this week. Just the two polls this week then and I’ll play arond with the left over emergencies with loopholes.
In the first poll, we’re deciding whether to bring in Fyfe & Young OR Sicily & Hayes……….
Option A – OUT Collins & Constable, IN Young (WBD) & Fyfe (FRE)
Option B – OUT Collins & Constable, IN Sicily (HAW) & Hayes (WBD)
So which way are you leaning?
Which trades would be better for the TEAM?
- Option B (66%, 95 Votes)
- Option A (34%, 49 Votes)
Total Voters: 144
And as always, the Captains poll for Rd7………
Best C/VC options for the TEAM in Rd7? (three choices)
- Patrick Cripps (CAR vs North) (25%, 74 Votes)
- Max Gawn (MEL vs Hawks) (23%, 66 Votes)
- Brodie Grundy (COL vs Port) (20%, 57 Votes)
- Lachie Neale (BRL vs Syd) (15%, 44 Votes)
- Patrick Dangerfield (GEE vs Ess) (8%, 23 Votes)
- Jack Macrae (WBD vs Rich) (7%, 19 Votes)
- Clayton Oliver (MEL vs Hawks) (2%, 6 Votes)
- Matt Crouch (ADE vs Freo) (1%, 2 Votes)
Total Voters: 123
Thank you, Coaches!!
