Where Are You At?

Written by MJ on July 1 2015

The byes for 2015 have run their race. We’re now over that hurdle and ready to face the remainder of the season. The question is: will we have a full team (22 premiums) by season’s end? Or will all these extra trades on injuries (Sloane, Rockliff etc.) cost us in the trading room come SC Finals?

It’s time to stop, sit back, boil the kettle and evaluate where your side is at now that the dust has settled on a whirlwind bye series. Will you make it to a fully loaded 22 with trades to spare come the business end?

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment. Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

  1. Hey guys, would like some advice. Currently ranked at about 1000, I was planning on trading Sloane & Lonie for Hannabery or Priddis & Gawn. Gawn can sit at F7 and provide Demons Of DARCH

    Hibberd, Newes, Simpson,
    Yeo, Smith, McGovern
    Hamling, Lever

    Pendles, Fyfe, D Beams, Parker,
    Dangerfield, Selwood, Kennedy, Sloane
    Heeney, Mackenzie, Boston

    Nic Nat, Goldstien

    Gray, Martin, Swan,
    Dalhouse, Bontempelli, Buddy
    Lonie, Steele

    9 Trades & $226,909K

    Need to trade Sloane and want Hodge down back so probably 2-3 trades till I’m happy


  2. Hey SCT Community

    Thoughts on my team and plan?

    7 trades and 90k in the bank

    Def: Shaw, Gibbo, Ox, Simpson, Hooker, Smith (Lever, Hamling)

    Mid: Fyfe, Pendles, Danger, Beams, Wines, Sloane, JPK, Hodge (Boston, Lambert, Amon)

    Ruc: Goldy, Nic Nat (Cox)

    Fwd: Gray, Swan, Martin, Buddy, Goddard, Bont (Steele, Lamb)

    This week I will look to trade Sloane to Parker so after this week I will have 6 trades and nothing in the bank.

    After this I will look to trade in Ablett for Oxley via Hodge when Ablett’s price goes down and to get the cash to afford this I will downgrade Lever.

    This will leave me with 4 trades for any LTI and for any luxury upgrades if I’m lucky enough.

    TU: Good team and plan

    TD: Bad team and plan



  3. 11 trades left 45k

    Was going to upgrade D6 this week but with sloane going out I’ll hold til next week. Any thoughts in what i should do or who I should get for sloane?

    Def: Hodge, Higgins, Newnes, Hibberd, Simpson, Hamling (Lever, Pearce)

    Mid: Fyfe, Dangerfield, Pendlebury,J Kennedy, Selwood, Lewis, Sloane, Cripps (Boston, mckenzie, anderson)

    Ruc: Goldstein, Natanui

    Fwd: Gray, Martin, Swan, Goddard, Franklin, Bontempelli (Clark, Lonie)


  4. Had to vote for the 4 or more premos to go sadly, as of my 22 trades to date, 13 have been forced. Of my legit upgrade trades, 2 each were to Sloane and Rock
    (that’s being burnt)!! – leaving only Ox and DMac to Danger 2 weeks ago, and Harry O to Brodie Smith last week (which is not really and upgrade).

    Bit hard to pack in the premos with that kind of injury list, but notice out to Andy B this week as I have to win to keep any slim finals hopes alive so I’m looking at salary cap breaches as a last resort.


  5. Like everyone else, need to trade Sloane (chopped JPK 2 weeks ago for him) – do I…….

    T/U Mundy
    T/D JPK


  6. Hey guys, need some advice on trades this week

    my team
    D – H.Shaw, B.Houli, G.Ibbotson, J.Newnes, J.Gibson, A.Oxley (A.Saad, D.McKenzie)

    M – N.Fyfe, S.Pendlebury, D.Heppell, R.Griffen, P.Cripps, R.Sloane, O.Wines, T.Rockliff (C.Ellis-Yolmen, A.Boston, T.Dumont)

    R – T.Goldstein, I.Maric (M.Cox)

    F – D.Martin, D.Swan, R.Gray, T.Mitchell, R.Tarrant, T.Bellchambers (J.Steele, K.Lambart)

    I have 46k in the bank

    Pick 1 of
    a) Oxley to Colquhoun
    b) Tarrant to T.McLean
    c) Bellchambers to McKernan
    a) B.Deledio
    b) S.Thompson
    c) JP.Kennedy

    any other suggestions would help.


  7. Ok, I haven’t done this for a long time, but currently ranked 37,000ish and can’t catch a break this year. So full team:

    D: Shaw, Simpson, Gibson
    McDonald, Taylor, Smith
    (Lever, Hamling)

    M: Fyfe, Pendles, JPK, Lewis
    Wines, Cripps, Newnes, Boston
    (Rockliff, Sloane, McKenzie)

    R: Goldstein, Martin

    F: Gray, Martin, Swan
    Dahlhaus, Bonti, Steele
    (Dale, Reed)

    Plan is if Lambert plays and Lever doesn’t, bring make the trade and send Newnes to D6, then Next week trade Deledio in for Sloane and swap him forward via Steele. Would still need to fill one premium mid slot

    Good plan?
    Comments for any suggestions – really desperate!


  8. Didnt pay too much attention and didnt realise I almost had more trades than rounds left
    17 trades left. 30k in the bank. Sitting 2500k, probably out of it now but looking for a few league wins

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

    Looking forward..
    T/U: Sloane -> Kennedy, CEY -> Steele (Next week, Oxley -> Houli, Cripps -> Premium)
    T/D: Same as above but downgrade Lonie. Hold Cripps for Ablett.

    Comment… Any help would be appreciated.


  9. I have no rookies left on the field and have 10 trades left after the trades this week. I have B. Smith and H. Taylor not peforming down back. Also, Rich, Lewis and Cripps in the midfield. For the next few weeks, who should I get rid of out of these players.


  10. WAS going to use my $341k to upgrade Dmac and CEY to premos, leaving a fulll premo side with Oxley and Cripps on the bench…. WAS.

    But now with Sloane out and uncertainty around Bennell, i think I may need to trade both of them.

    I’m worried that Nic Nat will be given a rest before finals so i’ll either bring in Mckernan this week, or hope that nic nat plays out the year or that a rookie becomes available.

    I’m eyeing of Malcski or Tom McDonald when they bottom out, so Oxley will have to stay on field for a while.

    Unsure who to get for Sloane, but CEY and Cripps will have to loophole on field until Gaz bottoms out and I snap him up for the last 4 rounds.

    This has been a tough year but it’s still fun


  11. Was going to get Dangerfield in to complete the A1 midfield I’ve got going, but then Buddy ran through Titch so I thought I should get versatility in with Deledio, but then Sloane got injured so I thought a like sideways to JPK or someone else would work, but then Stef Martin apparently nearly killed Luke Brown so I was having to get the overrated lab experiment Blicavs in. Now with Bailey Dale sure to be dropped I’m looking wholeheartedly at Shaun McKernan.



  12. 7 trades left, 80K on hand.
    Krakouer to Ryder in a couple of weeks because I can’t see Goldy AND Nic Nat playing every game this year.
    Probably going to have to leave Cripps at M8, have Steele and Lambert as back-up for the DPP swing with my fwds.
    Thinking of going Oxley to BMurphy this week, leaves me with five premos and BSmith, Hamling and Pearce. Up/down trades there to complete the backline.

    All that will leave me with only 3 trades for LTIs and Buddy-style brain fades, which is probably not enough but what can you do?
