A decent score of 2230 saw the TEAM win 8/10 League games and rise slightly in the Rankings (by 2343 spots).  With Fyfe, Cousins, Myers & Fisher out, I followed last weeks poll and traded out Myers & Fisher (top two choices!) for Lloyd & Ryan.  It does leave us with Adams & Lloyd in the midfield however (DPP status).  We just might have to trade in a non-playing dpp option at some stage.  TEAM is as follows……..

Happy that Harbrow came good for us after our Bye Rounds fiasco.  Lynch has slaughtered us over the last two weeks but luckily for him, we have bigger fish to fry.  Tom Stewart looks like he’s done for a while so he’s probably out of the TEAM this week.  Personally I’d suggest trading OUT T.Stewart (via dpp) & Barrett for Callum Brown (if named) & completing our midfield with The Bont.  Or we strengthen our forward line with Yeo or Heeney (via dpp)?  We’d be paying top dollar but they seem like Top6 FWDs judging the form till now.

As always I’m not the only one who decides.  Enter your trade suggestions into the Forum below and our Coaching Staff will approve/disapprove using the Thumbs UP/DOWN function.  Thanks, Coaches!


** UPDATE at 4pm on 29/6/17 **

Something a little different this week……I’m bringing the TEAM changes forward before team selections.  For two reasons: 1. I’m fairly confident which way they’ll go considering the comments below & 2. I don’t think there will be too many surprises in team selections (with our upgrades/downgrades anyway).  After trading out Fisher & Myers last week, T.Stewart & Barrett make way this Round (unless there are any major objections?).  It’s just a question of which direction we should be heading.  Please answer the following polls for the TEAM……….

  1. Would love to get the Bont this week, but we really need to strengthen that forward line! Paint the fence over the next two weeks.

    Stewart for Brown
    Barrett for Heeney / Yeo

    Next week look at trading out Stewart and Parsons for Witherden and Yeo / Heeny / Neale /Gawn etc…


    1. Agree with above. T Stewart will be out injured, so trade him out, move Lloyd to Def, still leaves Adams as a Mid/Def DPP. Trade in either C Brown – bit of a worry with his JS , or go early on Witherden, who is also a handy DPP. The trade out Barrett, move Bolton up to the Mids, giving us a Mid/Fwd DPP, and trade in either Yeo, Heeney or consider Greene, to save some cash.


    2. Solid.

      Stewart (injured) and Barrett (BE 114) this week. This gets Lloyd back onto the field (assuming Fyfe is named). Adams can hold the last premo spot in the mids in the short term, 105 average is passable.

      Nank will need to come out of the ruck sooner than later, seems to be losing points quite quicker to what others are putting up now. Gawn the obvious choice for Rd16.


    1. With Stewart injured and Barrett with a big BE, the rookies are the priority at this stage. If Lynch continues to stink things up then we’ll look at it when the TEAM is complete…….
