    1. I’d go Oliver as he should be cheaper after their scores this week. BEs are not really relevant now, given whoever you’re buying is likely to be a keeper from here, so does it really matter if they go up or down?!
      Oliver likely to be $539k with BE 111
      Pendlebury will be around $548k, BE 59.

      1. I suppose if break even is high then could be cheaper if you wait a week or 2
        I still don’t have Heeney and he will fill my last forward spot but can’t afford him atm

        1. Well Heeney should drop like a stone this week. Pick him up in two weeks after that 18pts has gone through his pricing cycle.

          2

    1. Me too HH. Two left. Decent bench cover and with Simpson and Heeney hopefully back this week should be good until the next piece of sh!te news at least.

      1. Yeah my bench cover is good too.

        Might be loopholing Dusty and Devon Smith such is the strength of the side.

        But 2 trades only for critical injuries now, so gotta hang tough on trades. Too many injuries this year.

        1. What is bench cover? Only have Ahern at the moment and can’t find anyone to bring in that I am confident will still be playing in a couple of weeks.
          All suggestions appreciated !!!

    1. If you’ve got the trades to burn yes. Otherwise I’d wait until one of your back men goes down, or finals, whichever comes sooner.

    1. I’m thinking the same – But I’d have to burn 2 trades to do it. I’m in a good position in my league but would also like to finish top 1000 which I’m just outside of.

      Grundy currently averaging 26 points a week more than Nic Nat

  1. I fell from 106 to 121 but still made slight ground on the top ten

    How important would the fellow SCT community feel a Luke Ryan to Lloyd or the Stefan Martin upgrade to Grundy be at this stage?

    1. Go Ryan to Lloyd this week but wait at least week on Martin to Grundy. Martin is having a charmed run with opposition rucks going down injured and faces the Hawks without McEvoy who broke his cheekbone. Should dominate as he did against Freo.

      1. Agree with Macka about Martin. I’d normally say hold Ryan he’ll come good, but if you’re a chance to win overall you gotta go for it!

  2. No trades this week. Wait one more week for the price drop, then trade one of my spud bench forwards to Jimmy Webster, via McLean and O’Connor. That’ll leave two trades remaining, and time to grab the prayer beads.

    Emergencies will then be set as Webster, Ahern and Fritsch.

  3. Hey guys…
    Running low on trades and cash.
    Only have 480k for a defender and currently have Simmo, Laird, Howe, Savage, Sicily, J. Smith (Redman, random)
    Thinking of Tom McDonald but need some advice.
    Thanks

  4. As the rookies dry up, I liked the look of Lynch ( WB ). It’s a bit of a cash grab to build the bank for T Smith ( via Keeffe dpp ) if he’s not picked this round, he’s making me no money in the magoo’s!

    Will leave me with 5 trades, full premo / Billings as F7, Ahern as M9 & J Smith as D7!

    Looking at the forgotten SC point accumulater Macrae in a few weeks, very high be so after a few games & before SC finals he should be around $500,000k

    1. Nice one Catta. I’m hoping I can wait til finals for the Macrae trade. Timing will be everything. Might be wishful thinking on my part with only two trades left tho!!?

        1. Given I’ve copped every one this year except Treloar, I could do with a bit of luck. You too HH. Here’s hoping 😉

  5. Double down grade this week
    Should have 400k after, 4 trades left 1 fwd upgrade left and may be nank- grundy

    7

        1. Another option if you can wait a week is Webster. Currently 426k and set to drop another 25k if he scores his average.

          1

          1
      1. Or Jayden Short. He looks better every week and it seems like the Tigers are starting to turn the heat up on the home stretch. His 5-Rd ave. = 100 exactly.
        Price? To you, just $467 900.

        0

  6. 3 trades left
    Weak links are…
    Savage Austin at D5 and D6
    Mundy Fritsch F5 and F6
    132k ITB
    I have bench cover in every position
    Is it worth upgrading one of these
    T/U yes
    T/D no

    11

    5
        1. Savage > Lloyd or Yeo or Laird or TMac or Sicily in that order I reckon. ie the best you haven’t got.
          Risky to keep Austin over Savage (JS wise), but I have Savage and he’s doing my head in! I also have Mundy and Fritsch. Both keepers for me.

          1

          1
          1. Do I swap Keefe to forward and Sicily into my backline then trade Austin at D7 to lynch which gives me 300k to go T.Smith to Westhoff which would give me
            Backs
            Simpson Yeo Sicily Laird crisp Savage
            Back cover – lynch

            Forwards
            Westhoff Gray Devon McLean Mundy Fritsch
            Forward cover – battle when he comes back

            8

            1
  7. I’m thinking about Redman to Lynch this week just to get a bit of extra cover.
    Next week Austin to TMAC.
    Will leave me with 3 trades with Lynch at D7 (with the option of swinging Sicily up there with Keefe for cover), Dusty at M9, and JJK at F7.
    Hopefully that will see me through and just use those 3 trades on long term injuries!

  8. Is Jack Trengove a must have M8??
    Do you boys think that he will be dropped anytime?
    Let me know!!!!
    THANKS
    Paddy D

    1. I have him. He is playing well but I traded him in by mistake (don’t ask!)
      Am not convinced of his JS but he should hold his spot for now.
      Would still think Sier (maybe even Narkle) has better JS. Might be worth re-asking later in the week …

      1

      1
  9. Overseas ATM and haven’t had a sight of the rookies on the bubble. How do the following boys look, and how’s their JS looking? All thoughts appreciated. Thx.
    Sier, Narkle, Lynch, Powell. Any others?

    0

    0
    1. Lynch (looks super) and Sier most likely have the best JS.
      Trengove (PTA) is travellin’ well but his JS is uncertain.

      Maybe check out Rookie Review and CowTalk this week for more informed feedback if you get the chance.

  10. What you boys think of Bruessttt from hawks? Massive points lately & a great run coming up!!! His in Brownlow contention too & he knows it. Would be my last upgrade (upgrading Ronke)

    never thought I’d be sayn that I’m glad I took Hurley over Simmo for my last def spot
    PJsays:
    July 7, 2018 at 1:49 pm
    was always gna miss games @ his age , gna need a strong def bench if you have him as the season progresses
    PJsays:
    July 7, 2018 at 1:52 pm
    if you have Simmo you need Brayshaw as a mid def swing as back up I recon ..

    1. yeh
      would take simpson for dahlhouse @ the start of finals without premium bench cover if I still have 4-5 trades left , wont be tradeing in till then , pretty sure that comment was made in responce to someone who had no def bench cover , good to see you recording my comments though champ , write down yr address & ill send you a signed copy ..

  12. Have 4 trades left so will see what sort of carnage awaits at the selection table.Basically full premo but unless O’Connor or Keefe play then I’m little thin down back.The Sicily swing has been a godsend to date.

  13. 7 trades left need to win all 3 games to make finals in a very strong match cash league. Full team. Only rookie cover on the bench:

    Weakest link Shaw

    TU – Shaw & Austin to Lloyd & Lynch

    TD- no point in making finals with no trades

    23

    2
  14. Fritsch is my last upgrade. Who should I target?

    Up – Crouch
    Dn – Gaff

    Comment – JPK or another option

    3

    15
  15. Luxury trade possibly for this week. 5 trades left and thinking of either:

    TU: Parker to Gaff
    TD: Nic Nat to Goldy

    Comment Nic Nat to Grundy using 2 trades.

    Cheers!

    1. I can’t talk as I only have two trades left but, 5 trades are gold.
      NicNat went ok yesterday so should go up in $$s if he can maintain that for a while and Parker will surely come again with Swans’ top 4 finish on the line. He’s a true competitor.
      I’d personally wait for an injury and replace whoever goes down with a fallen premium freeing up enough cash to make the move for Grundy in one. Will give you two premiums (one absolute gun) for two trades.
      If you’re still in the same position when finals come around then trade away.

      All that said, if finals berths are on the line and/or you’re going for overall, just get it done. Just don’t regret it if you do, that’s all.

      Good luck!

      1. Thanks allsaints. Great advice!

        I’m playing in a few leagues but nothing too serious, so overall is probably more of a goal. Only my second ever SC season and just broke into top 10k for the first time so want to see how high I can go.

  16. Have 4 trades left and not wanting to use any more before the finals, BUT, is Guelfi to Shuey a good trade? It would bring me to full premo (if you can call Shuey a premo??) and 3 trades for the finals. Worth the trade??

    3

    2
    1. if Guelfi is on your bench I’d HOLD. his price may go down in the short-term, but it should come back up to over $300k. if he gets dropped, then ignore these thoughts.

      0

      0
      1. Hi Allsaints, Guelfi is on my bench at present. I have not need to play him and I am not confident in his scoring ability. I have Fritsch as D6 at the moment

        1

        0
        1. think you mean F6?!
          I have the same F6 and F7. With Callum Moore at F8. I’m not stressing. Fritsch is a hold for me til season’s end due to lack of trades. Am not worried for now …

          0

          0
          1. sorry, meant F6.
            At the moment I have Guelfi as F7 but would have Ahern as F7 if I traded Guelfi for Shuey. I am a lot more confident in Ahern than Guelfi in terms of JS and scoring potential

            1

            0
    2. I got Shuey last week at M8…going nicely..
      Very pleased… hopefully straight swap for Macrae for finals

  17. So 6 trades left.

    Thumbs Up
    This week, 2 trades (downgrade and upgrade) for $ to trade in Lloyd.

    Thumbs Down
    Wait a week (high b/e) use 1 trade to get Webster.

    9

    3
  18. Already going Fyfe- Oliver and can go Boak-Walters with the leftover cash.

    Is Boak to Walters worth a trade?

    TU – Yes
    TD – No

    4

    18
  19. Which trade/sto make this week…
    TU: Doedee to Lloyd, and Murphy to cheap rookie
    TD: Nank to Grundy, Doedee down to Webster or other defender next week

    3

    13
  20. Looks like this week I can finally get rid of Dahlhaus at long last – can afford pretty much any FWD:

    TU: Heeney
    TD: Westhoff

    Comment: go for the Chad and save some $

    Cheers

    12

    11
    1. If you’re targeting Heeney, you’d want to wait 2 weeks as he’ll be about 45-50k cheaper at that point.

      1

      0
  21. Am full premo now with $230K in the bank and 4 trades left.

    I really want to upgrade Sauce Jacobs to Brodie Grundy.
    This seems like the best time to make the trade given their B/E’s.

    Am tired of seeing a 40-50 pt difference each week!

    T/U: Save the trades
    T/D: Do it and stress less

    Thanks team.

    1. On average, how many pts/week do you reckon you’ll make with Pendles coming in this week? Is waiting for Macrae gonna more than cover those points foregone by season’s end? It’s unlikely you’d think. If you have the trades I’d get Pendles now.

      1

      0
      1. Gonna just wait for Macrae at cheap price for run home

        Not having him may cost me finals wins I rekon. Has a huge ceiling & consistency

        1

        0
    1. On current form I would say no…Goldy is going fine. Over the last 7 weeks Grundy has only outscored him by around 70 points.

      Are there other issues you could fix with this trade to get better than a 10-15 point per game return?

      If of course everything is perfect and you cant see Goldy maintaining current form then yes consider it.

      0

      0
    2. I have the same conundrum.

      Goldy last 5 round average 122.2
      Grundy last 5 round average 127.2

      I am considering keeping Goldy as a finals POD. In the last 4 rounds (SC finals) he comes up against Stef Martin, Tom Boyd, Sauce Jacobs, Tom Hickey.

      Grundy comes up against Sinclair, Stef Martin, Paddy Ryder and Sandilands in what could be his farewell game.

      I will at least hold off for now and keep a close eye on his form.

  22. 5 trades left no cover in the backs and very little cash ($40k) for emergency trades.

    TU – T. Smith for B. Lynch via couple of DPP moves.
    TD – save the trade.

    Would net me an extra $100k and give me some bench cover. Is Lynch JS solid?

    10

    0
  23. Trading out Fyfe with Parker as M9. 5 trades left with a full premo team.

    TU – Selwood with easy run home for finals
    TD – wait for Macrae to bottom out just before finals
    Comment to keep Fyfe until he comes back
    Since he is covered by Parker.

    2

    7
    1. If you can loophole the better of Parker and Selwood each week, it might be worth more points to you than waiting for Macrae. If you can’t, I’d probably wait.
      Good luck

  24. Got a plan.

    Duman for Lynch this week

    Then Webster next week for Tim Smith Swinging Sicily forward. This puts Walters on the bench who I can then loop hole with Dusty/Parker. Leaves me with 2 trades.

    Or I can just Nic Nat to Grundy this week

    4

  25. McGovern out Brashaw in.
    Stupid thing is I traded him out earlier in year oh well better late than never. Also never thought I’d say this but am benching buddy this week..

  26. Will hutchings go to wines this week? I can’t afford another terrible score like that.

    Tu: will have him on a leash
    Tu: free range ollie (the way we like him)

    1

    5
    1. It’s definitely possible but you rarely see Ollie get tagged, the same goes for most of the port players. I feel like Rockliff and Wingard are just as likely to get the tag based on their form. Hutchings’s history suggests he doesn’t tend to tag big bodies but that could merely be a coincidence.

      1

  27. 4 trades left at full premo,
    is it worth trading Guelfi and Spargo to a swinging cover M9/F7 in Menegola/De Goey/Wingard and a 102k rookie?

    6

    1
  28. 17th position need to upgrade Taranto to a premium mid pod any sugestions only 2 trades left already have Duncan as 1 pod or hold

    1

    1
  29. Broke the John Glenn rule and brought in Lynch to cover Simmo, and followed up with Fyfe to Pendles….been a good week. Two games on top, 6 trades, 249k. I’m putting the T que in the rack until finals, unless injuries.

    2

    1
  30. One last midfield spot. Already have Mitchell, cripps, coniglio, parker, oliver, danger, zmerret. With only 500k was thinking of getting in Sloane.

    Tu : good for the cash
    Td : other gems elsewhere

  31. Ive got 6 trades and $70k left and sort of full premo (it includes degoey, rocky and dusty).
    Thinking of bringing in a non playing def/fwd rookie so i can swing sicily/tmac fwd to cover to cover injuries.
    Need to decide which bench rookie to dump. Who is less likely to return out of
    T/u tim smith
    T/d liam ryan

    1

    1
  32. hey guys im thinking of trading nic nat to grundy. my team is full premo and it will leave me with 2 trades. im ranked around 1400
