A new record score for the TEAM and what a time to do it!  The TEAM is now inside five Top8s and a chance to sneak into Finals in a further three Leagues.  Well done, Coaches!  The TEAM as it stands now……….

With five trades left, things are getting a little tricky.  Do we go all out and get Grundy into the Ruck for Martin??  Should we upgrade Fritsch after his 102 last week?  Should we bring in a Swingman as cover for M9/F7?  Or is it time to hold trades and keep the faith in the players we have right now?  Let us know what you’d do with this TEAM?


** UPDATE at 5am on 13/7/18 **

The polls are fairly self-explanatory this week, Coaches………..


Should we trade at all?

Should the TEAM use any trades for Rd17?

      1. I agree T.Smith to Powel to open the dpp bench swing with Ahern (Heeny will come into forward line of course).


  1. Hold trades and look for a fallen premium to trade in for Fritsch over the coming weeks (Darling, Greene, Deledio, McDonald). If there are enough spare trades heading into SC finals then Martin to Grundy could be considered.


  2. Maybe Ryan/Smith to Lynch via Sicily.
    It would mean Austin/Lynch at D6/7 and Ahern at F7.
    Has marginal +/- effect on total score, gives us cover in FWDs and a Few Dollars More with 4 trades remaining.


  3. Team is looking good at the right time of year. With 7 weeks to go, its time to take a step back and hold trades. I would limit suggestions to a fall back position if a fwd late out.


  4. Chances to cash in on rookies is drying up, with Austin ruled out for 2 weeks & needing another fwd/mid option I suggest as follows!

    Austin < Lynch for $$$$
    T Smith or L Ryan < Mundy …. keeping Fritsch as he’s been very consistent since his role change.

    This would allow to swap Heeney back forward / Ahern back to mid bench & use Mundy/Fritsch/Ahern to suit best options for loopholing for m9/F6 & F7 as solid options.

    For the record, Mundy in 2018 has played every game & managed 6×100’s, 3 x90’s, 2×80’s, 3×70’s & one average game of 53vTigers in round 7

    Cheers Catta


  5. Ohhhh no, going off the pole above where going to miss on potentially one of the last cash grabs for some weeks!

    Cash for an injured rookie Austin for one on the bubble Lynch -71 & Ryan / T Smith upgrade to mid/fwd Mundy (while Fyfe is injured) & holding Fritsch seems so right in my eyes!

    It’s the sites team, so I’ll always wish it well….especially as I don’t personally play against The Team 😉
