    Wont be rested much unless he is injured. If you have Barlow in your team you'll be fine!

    Yes, if he gets injured.

    Otherwise he will have a post season surgery like last year.

    A lot of crystal balling required to predict future injuries but both have the tank to play out the full year.

    He did yes, and he battled through it last season. Club is willing to rest him and take it easy on him compared to last season.

    He loves a tackle and does seem to play the outsider type role ie. 4th mid. He is keen to prove people wrong, so with GC and Port coming up after Blues, could be a bargain pick up

    Guys who do you think will be your sub tonight?

    I have Barlow in my team and am worried sick that he is going to start as the sub. :eek::thumbsdown::thumbsdown::thumbsdown:

    Contemplating bringing in Peerce, do you guys think he'll maintain his current form and position in the midfield?

    Much chance of Fyfe playing out the year without being rested for safety or is he worth trading?

    I've got Sandilands and am happy to cop the zero providing he plays next week. I don't know what sort of injuries Sandi has had in the past (apart from something about a degenerative foot?) so on a scale of 1-10 how confident are you guys he'll line up next week?

    Not very. We are playing Gold Coast who are probably going to be without Ablett. Not much point playing him against them.

    For a couple of weeks now Broughton has only been playing around 64% game time. Is there a reason for this or is Lyon just using him in bursts?

    Not sure on that one, he is getting the midfield rotations which is helping his scores though. He had a full preseason and fitness wise he looks okay.
    If he started getting more TOG he could be capable of 120+ scores!!

    Yeah that would be nice. At the moment only the subs are getting less ground time than him.

    Bringing in a big gun with my first legitimate rookie cull of the season.

    Picked up Micky B + Kennedy for Didak (MIA) and Pfeiffer (jewed) a couple of weeks back, via a bit of a downgrade/sideways/rookie pick up, so this is my first big move of the season.

    Reckon this is one of the weeks to pull the trigger, what about you kids?

    I noticed that too, I have no idea what is going on.

    I traded Barlow in last week and he got 100 straight away. I had too use another trade to offload Carazzo.

    My DT is a write off this year, after just missing out on the top 1K last year i've given up already this year, haha.

    Just too busy to do all the analytical shit this year to be honest.

    Just to clarify, I know this is an incredibly ridiculous question but there isnt any chance of Barlow being sub is there. I havent seen him play that much.

    Should Pearce stay consistent with his scoring, especially now that Fyfe has an extended layoff?

    Not much chance of starting as sub, but a small chance of coming off if he copes a knock to the leg.

    Simply put, If your thinking about trading him in... DO IT!

    Thoughts on the long term job security of Neale, especially now with Fyfe out?

    Should only improve, however with his 2 scores as sub it might pay to dig up his break even for this week if he plays, if he goes in as sub again he might actually decrease in value? In which case it'd be better to pick him up the following week.
