I tried to buy it just now but it redirects me for a full digital pass $14 a month. SC aside the HS sucks. I'll wait for the Excel pickers. Cheers!
Yeah, and it's fun to draft the first one and blow the cobwebs out, but we'll have to see which rookies present as round one approaches as well.
The good thing about the Excel ones it's they show byes and they're much easier to update, save different versions and stuff :thumbsu:

Rucks doing my head in

Think Grundy and Pruess with a cheeky swap to Gawn when he crashes in price
At this stage I can’t see Pruess as as being worth it. No way he gets enough ruck time with a fit Gawn. I’d he plays it’ll be majority forward.

Starting Team:

DEF: Z.Williams, Blakely, Milera, L.Weller, B.Smith, Newman

MID: Wines, Viney, B.Crouch, J.Hopper, A.Hall, Hannebery, Liberatore, A.Miles

RUCK: Goldstein, Mumford

FWD: Dunkley, De Goey, Gresham, T.Greene, Daniher, Setterfield
This was just the ultimate mid-price madness team I could come up with.

Bolded are the players I'm actually gonna pick/seriously considering.

I also think it'd make this year more interesting and fun if I went for some POD's and stayed away from guys like Danger, Grundy, Titch etc... that everyone's gonna have in their team.

Viney hasn't been SC relevant so far but I think he went to another level in the finals and will kill it this year. Just one of those gut feelings I wouldn't mind taking a gamble on.

Aaron Hall averaged 95 in 2016 and 92 in 2017. He's capable of some pretty big scores. Could be a solid stepping-stone player.

Miles has a very SC friendly game. One would be foolish not to at-least consider him at the price he's at.

If Brad Crouch looks good and ready to go then I'm definitely starting him. A proven scorer in the past. Capable of averaging over 100.

To the many that have scrimshaw in their team. I can’t see him getting a game. Couldn’t on the gc. Would get 20 first half and 4 second half possessions in the 2s cause his tank was empty.

I’m very biased so take with a grain of salt but can’t see it happening early in the season anyway.

Hibberd, Burton, Aurora Corey Ellis, Scully, Laverde (if he can avoid injury), 2MP some others in that bracket.
Imagine if you could pick all the right midpricers, would be hard but you'd get off to a flyer.

Hmm, I wonder if any other players are planning on working hard over the summer also?:think:
Hard to argue, it's a nothing headline.
Don't think I could bring myself to start the people's grogan after last year's debacle,but then you wonder if it's those cognitive biases that often result in looking a gift horse in the mouth.
Might actually go ok, reckon Saints will rise a bit and he should benefit, to be honest.
