  1. Need to replace Wallis and Cripps. Hard to go past Armitage and Steele this week. Looking at GAJ in 1-2 weeks.

    Monitoring Ablett and Daniel this week.

  4. Need to downgrade Clark for a fwd playing rookie as bench cover (already got Steele & too many dogs in my fwd line to choose Caleb Daniel) suggestions?

  5. Oxley & Sloan out for Rance & Steele this week. Leaving 9 trades & 456K to get Daniel (for Read) in Rnd 16 & GAJ & B.Goddard in Rnd 17.

  6. Should I trade in a Mid Premo this week to complete my team or wait a couple of weeks for Ablett’s price to go down and then get him in. By waiting for Ablett I will have to play either Hamling or Lever.

    TU: Get a Mid Premo

    TD: Wait for Ablett

  7. Opted to trade Bennell to Bonts, which wasn’t great, but better than going for goddard. Hopefully it will work out long term and with Mckernan/Bontempeli at F6/7, i think i will be okay.

    Now have 650k+ to Upgrade a defender (unsure who tho) and CEY to a mid premo (again unsure who). Then Cripps to Gaz next week.

  8. Unfortunately burnt what should have been unnecessary trades covering 5 x Crow/Cat Premos(?) plus Lever to attempt staying in the finals race. Just failed in that so out of the hunt in LoEC1 and still in the 8 in Tech 3. Looks like Maric back to Blitz after one week leaving 5 to somehow engineer GAJ in and hope for the best if I play finals. Gotta love this game!!

  9. With 8 trades remaining, I’m really inclined to bunker down since I’ve already managed 10+ W’s in just about all 5 of my leagues (probably 4 when I last checked in some hard fought H2Hds all season), and ideally I wanted to leave Cripps as my M8 for a few more weeks in order to go simply from him to Ablett for my last Midfield Premo, but now that Cripps’s BE is over in the 120s and carrying a bit of an injury when I last checked, hmm…

    T/U – Hold Cripps and wait for Ablett in a few more weeks
    T/D – Time for Cripps to go

  10. My score hasn’t been added up correctly this week! I loopholed tom read as my captain and had todd goldstein as my vc. Goldstein had a good game with 149 so i left it as is. I’ve added up my score 3 times with a calculator and I scored 1999. Goldys vc didnt count as double! my score ended up being 2008 though what the f@#$?

  11. Good Morning SCT,

    Looking at my last defender & it’s come down to these 2

    T/U…Rance $418k ave 93.23 & BE: 16
    T/D…Simpson $470k ave 92.73 & BE: 100

    I’m thinking the $52k will come in handy at a later date, what’s your thoughts?

    Cheers Catta

  12. Looking to build funds to get Ablett, but I am OBSESSED with being the smartest guy in the room and getting ahead of the game so I might burn 2 (!) trades to get him next week.

    Just Brown to Steele at this stage but I’m pretty sure I’ll do something stupid before Thursday night.

  13. I’m most likely going Sloane -> Rockliff – $1K difference and am confident Rocky will be back to his best come league finals time.

    2nd trade, probably Oxley or Saad (if he’s injured) to Houli.

    That will leave about $190K in the bank for later changes with all premos on the field but Ox/Saad

    8 trades left after those two this week

  14. Anyone able to shed some light on McGovern?

    Haven’t been able to watch much of West Coast recently but this bloke is really doing my head in.

  15. Same BB. Last few weeks was carrying a corkie, but no excuse on the weekend. That goal towards the end made his score a little less shite.

  17. I’d just like to apologise to everyone who had Fyfe as captain this week. Just add him to the long list of first week in players I’ve cursed this season.

    Haven’t thought of trades this week yet but feel free to check in with me first so you can avoid the curse.

  18. Hi all.
    Need one midfielder to complete the team. If I trade Boston then I have just under $600k to spend which basically means anybody except (at this stage) Ablett and Beams

    If you had the choice and money was no object who would you pick out of Hannebery, Priddis and Montagna.

    I am leaning towards Hannebery for consistency (i.e. no spud scores). Whilst I am not convinced of Montagna’s ability to play every game. Priddis is the hard one. He has the one huge game which has inflated his average a bit.

    Or is it a better option to wait a couple for Gary Jnr.

  19. T/u Trade lever down to Goddard/Maynard and then upgrade Alex Pearce to Rance (Completing premiums in back line)

    T/D Trade Lever down to Goddard/Maynard and Cripps to Ablett (Go week early but still get him in)

    Comment if I should hold and not trade and wait one more week for a little increase in prices from like lever if he gets a game and alex pearce who has b/e 30, and wait also to wait for ablett to drop a little more and get him next week or week after

  20. Cripps out for Steele this week, then Boston out for Stef Martin via Krak (to mid bench) and McKernan (into fwd bench) next week?

    Saad, Krak seem a little too good as DPP’s to trade out this early… Hamling, Steele, even Lambert could provide the springboard to Ablett via weakest mid (A.Swallow currently) in a few weeks.

    T/U: Sounds like a plan, Stan.
    T/D: too cautious – get saad and krak out at the top of their game.

    Thanks for your always valuable input – am 10th in my money league but only 1 win out of 8th.

  21. Ditto like Pogue Mahone, was going to sit tight and not make any trades, but with Maric suspended for 1 week, is it worth going Amon – McKernan so I have Ruck cover for Maric this week, or to just eat the donut?

    T/U – Go for it
    T/D – Eat the donut

  22. Can do a direct swap N Brown to Brodie Smith and lock my backs but not sure B Smith will return to form? Option two is burn trades to get someone more expensive but less risk?

    TU Brodie Smith
    TD He’s no where near a top 6 FWD

  23. I can assure Brodie Smith won’t be even remotely close to the top 6 forwards 🙂
    They’re very high expectations you’ve set the man

  24. Thinking of going:

    Boston > Steele
    then
    B.Smith > Rockliff by throwing Yeo in the backline

    T/U – Looks pretty solid
    T/D – Don’t risk rockliff

  25. Have one spot in my MIDs but also have Selwood. Saving last spot for GAJ but should I move Selwood on for Rocky now? Have 10 trades left…

    Yes – T/Up

    No – T/Down

  26. Another dilemma… Which DEF player out for Steele (through McGov swap)?

    N.Brown, making $170k, keep Saad as a solid bench back up – T / Up

    A.Saad, making $283k, keep Brown as OK back up – T / Down

  27. I feel for the people that rage traded Jack Newnes at about round 5..
    Has only scored under 80 once and a three round average of 113.3
    103,133,105 #3peat

  28. Who should I trade out for Steele?

    T/U: Boston, making me $141k and leaving my mids bench Steele, Kavanagh, and Freeman

    T/D: Lonie, making me $189k and leaving my fwd bench Steele and Fantasia

    Mids and Fwds are all premiums now, only spot left to upgrade is D6.

  29. Morning SCT coaches,

    Catta’s Clan / 218th overall & 706 points off the leader

    Def…Shaw, Rance, Gibson, Newnes, Saad, Smith ( Hamling/Lever )
    Mid…Fyfe, Pendles, Hannebery, Dangerfield, JPK, Selwood, Wines, Wallis
    ( McKenzie/Steele/Lambert )
    Ruc…Goldy/Maric ( Read )
    Fwd…Martin, Gray, Swan, Goddard, Franklin, Bontempelli (Krakouer/Goddard)

    Now I’m sitting on 9 trades & $235k in the bank, but I’m thinking of trading Maric to Blicavs to keep momentum going. I feel Maric has started to look tired in the ruck lately as he shoulders most of the ruck work for the Tiges & Blicavs is a fitness machine that keeps impressing me!

    T/U….Worth the trade, go for it Catta
    T/D….Eat the donut this week & forget about overall as it’s just to far away

    Cheers SCT

  30. With all the buzz on Ablett, just wondering if anyone is considering Jimmy Bartel as a forward upgrade? Back this week, will be about 430K in two weeks time. Anyone? Bueller?

  31. Just went Hogan – Gray with full premo fwd line

    Want to trade on Oxley to Premo but only have 450k to play with

    worth holding till Krak downgrade or upgrade Oxley to macmillion/Rance now

  32. Anyone with Jobe Watson still in their team will need to trade him, if they haven’t already. Shoulder surgery will see him out for the rest of the year & explains a bit about his form.

  33. At the moment I’m thinking Lonie > Steele and Sloane > Armitage/Rockliff

    Wallis > Ablett next week

    TU: good
    TD: bad

  34. Have traded Rockliff out twice this year and with Watson out, do I trade in Rockliff again?!
    TD – You’re crazy man, don’t get burnt a third time
    TU – Surely he’s 100% and will go large again!

  35. Howdy SCT’ers

    I have mad 2 trades thus week

    Saad > Picken
    &
    Cripps > JPK

    That leaves me 1 trade left to do Sloane > Gaz next week as long as Gaz doesn’t cost more than 647800.

    My benches are Lever, Edwards :(, Boston, Steele, C.Ellis :(, Brooksby, Mclean 🙁 and Lambert. Full premo team but will have ZERO trades.

    My question : T/U – You will crash and burn and eat many dohnuts later in the year,

    Or

    T/D – Should go well with any luck

  36. 15 Trades so no room to let up now.
    Oxley -> Houli – Certainty this week

    T/U Cripps -> Sidebottom w/ Rich -> Ablett next week
    T/D Cripps -> Dangerfield w/ Rich -> Ablett in 2 weeks + extra trade

    Comment: Are there better options than Sidebottom. Armitage or Hannebery?
    Will still be able to sneak either in if Ablett doesn’t score 150+

    DEF: Shaw, Higgins, Newnes, Hibberd, Hodge, Oxley (Lever, Hamling)
    MID: Fyfe, Pendlebury, Beams, Griffen, Rich, Cripps, JPK, Rockliff (McKenzie, Dumont, Steele)
    RUCK: Goldstein, Naitanui (Read)
    FWD: Martin, Gray, Swan, Goddard, Bontempelli, Mitchell (Lonie, Clark)

  37. Still holding Sloane, with two options on the table:

    TU: trade this week to Sidebottom and then upgrade Boston to GAJ next week, leaving me 8 trades and a full team
    TD: trade Mitch Clark to Bullen-Neale this week then next week go Sloane to Danger/Priddis/Hannebery and Boston to GAJ, leaving 7 trades and a full team

    Trades are obviously not a huge issue, but could sway as Sidebottom has potential of going 110+ for the rest of the year whereas the alternatives have proven form doing it this year
