Went early on Buku last week and need to take one of Rory Thompson or Luke Cleary this week to free up cash. None of the three players mentioned will be on field (D7, D8).

Weighing up apparent job security (Thompson) vs scoring potential (Cleary), etc. Obviously Thompson is on the bubble and Cleary is not.
Thompson. Going early on Buku was a risk, doing it again with Cleary would be silly.

If in doubt take the bubble boy.

A r13 bye ruck rookie to cash in Hayes too would be the best I reckon.
If we don't get Comben, I reckon we're done for rucks this year

Looks like his knee is screwed but, so doubt we'll see him any time soon

Do we know what is up at all with Violin? He isn't listed as injured or ill?

Charlie Comben missed the clash with Casey due to a persisting knee issue but continues to train. His strong bank of performances at reserve level could see him come in and provide another strong marking target alongside Nick Larkey

Cleary just needs to show enough and he'll hold his spot, you really need to be awful to be dropped by Bevo as a rookie. Ed Richards playing the Duryea role beautifully this year.

Regret trading out richards after the first month, but he just looked supremely average when i watched him. Kudos to those who held.

Same, I moved him on for Bowey who became Zorko last week so not a big loss but would have been good to back myself in.

I did the same sequence of trades, except brought zorko in a month ago haha.

The loss there is one trade, not huge but potentially significant
