TRADING HISTORY

After Rd3 L.Ryan (WCE) & L.Davies-Uniacke (NTH) OUT for E.Richards (WBD) & J.Henry (GEE) IN

Rd4 Josh Kelly (GWS) OUT for Stephen Coniglio (GWS) IN

Rd5Jeff Garlett (CAR) & Michael Hibberd (MEL) OUT for Matt Guelfi (ESS) & Patrick Dangerfield (GEE) IN

Rd6 Riley Bonner (PTA) & Bailey Banfield (FRE) OUT for Taylin Duman (FRE) & Zach Merrett (ESS) IN

Rd7Andrew Brayshaw (FRE) & Jeremy Finlayson (GWS) OUT for Charlie Spargo (MEL) & James Sicily (HAW) IN

Like so many Coaches, we had to cop the zero from Naughton which didn’t help the cause.  Still managed to win four League games but it hasn’t quite clicked yet.  Feels like we’re close to kicking into gear, hopefully it starts happening for us this week.

Billings has got to go.  Eight weeks is more than enough of a ‘trial period’ in Supercoach……it’s just not happening for him this year.  I’d suggest going one up/one down with Billings and Naughton.  I’m hoping that some viable rookie options will present themselves.

As always though, I’m not alone in the decision making.  If you want to make a trade suggestion then enter it into the Forum below.  You’ll have to convince the Coaching Staff (through the Thumbs UP/DOWN) if we’re going to take anything to a vote.

So if this was your personal side, what moves would you be making?  Fire away, Coaches!

 

**UPDATE at 7.30pm on 17/5/18 **

Wi th the absence of Hurley, Naughton & Duman (FURL!), the TEAM is staring at a donut in the back line.  Fortunately that was the focus of most of our trade suggestions so we should still be able to strengthen the TEAM anyway.

First poll for our Coaching Staff involves our trade IN for the injured Naughton (WBD)……..

      1. Looks like the best plan to me. Unless we like Ronke?! Either way R13 and R14, are beginning to look nasty up FWD.
        Plenty of time I guess …

  1. Word is Hurley is out for 1-2 weeks so will need cover there.

    Billings down to Keefe, Naughton to Yeo?? Opens the Swing with Sicily. ‘Scileefe swing’ if you will :P.

  2. I’ve still got Billings myself, and everytime I go to trade him out an injury to another team member saves him.So why not this week? Buckley seems to have this habit of running opposition players into form aka Zorko last week and Danger having his best week this week. I know there’s a lot out there that find it cathartic when they ditched Billings , I’ll just be that guy on the boat waving to y’all as it’s sinking!!

    1. I really rate Ryan.

      I just don’t think we can fit anymore round 14 bye players into this side.

      I will be looking at him round 15 for my D5/6 spot.

  3. Naughton to Keefe
    Billings to Hogan
    No need to worry about too many round 13 bye players in the forward line. The rookies will get traded before then

  4. Two options:

    Up – Henry to Phillips (via Fog), Naughton to Simpson

    Down -Billings to Phillips (via Fog), Naughton to Simpson/Yeo

    Would say Holman before Henry but we’re just short on cash 🙁

  5. Hold trades, double down next week (Philips and Cumming most likely) and look at getting in Gray or Westhoff after their bye?

  6. Laird, Simpson, Yeo, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray, (Naughton, C,o shea )

    Mitchell, crouch, Fyfe, Cripps, Holman, Coniglio, Kelly, Martin ( Coffield, Brodie, Barry)

    Gawn, Naitanui ( Cameron)

    Heeney, McLean, Spargo, Smith, Petracca, Fritsch, (Crowden, Ahern)

    19 trades and 138k left help

  7. Slim pickings, because of Hurley’s injury Billings survives again!!!!

    Naughton < Keefe
    Doedee < Yeo….With Richards bought on to replace Hurley

    Next forward upgrade, move Keefe forward to allow the dpp link with Sicily!

    Cheers Catta

  8. Keep both Hurley and naughton for this week and swing duman and Richards on field….looks to be +40 or so straight away overall and no loss of cash. Henry 114 looks to be a one off so he goes for dpp of Keefe with cash gain, and Sicily swing. Billings then to Menegola…..just look at his numbers !!!. Overall result is higher pts, better flexibility, more cash, Hurley and naughton free to trade next week, and better byes balance.

      1. If it’s truly a 1-2 week injury for Hurley, you can’t trade him out. If you know some other information then please share it with the rest of us 😉
