    I expect a few rookies to debut this week

    Couch, L.Neale, M.Newman and maybe K.Stevens/Brennan as well depending on how many the eagles rest this week.

    Thoughts on milera? thinking about a sideways trade from dickson. He has the best breakeven in the forwardline of players i don't have.

    Im most likely doing the same.

    Hoping one of Hall/Dickson isn't named to make my decision easier.

    1. Kennedy's Rd1 score. My other Fwd bench rook is Hampton who was playing. Couch will play soon so nothing lost. It's just another trade other teams who don't already have him will have to use sooner or later. I still have heaps of cash, so meh if I don't make 10k from Hall or Dickson's first price change.

    2. D Smith is not a wasted midfield BENCH spot, since I can DP him with Chapman, Goodes, Fyfe, Sidebottom, Kennedy, Hampton or Couch or use him for a fwd bench spot or even F7 if required.

    I started with
    Mids: Magner, McDonald, Shiel, D Smith
    Fwds: Kennedy, Hampton, Couch

    Couch will be great value IMHO same as D Smith
    Hampton isn't my best pick, but still better than Hall & Dickson, for his DP if nothing else.

    The way I see it, the only gun rookie I missed was Greene and possibly Clay Smith. Getting Greene in this week. Will pass on Clay. Can't fit all the best rooks into 30 spots. FWIW I think Devon Smith will outscore Clay Smith this year.

    Yer same. If Dicksons dropped im definitely trading him. Im hoping milera will keep his spot. I don't know too much about him tbh but stkilda has poor depth so im hoping this gives him good job security.

    Neale definitely won't play, he pulled up pretty sore from the weekend with a corky apparently, and his stats weren't all that prolific. It's his 1st game of the season proper so he'll play a few more before any chances come his way.

    They need to play him.

    Surely he is better than half their list.

    If Couch plays, I'm definitely starting him ahead of Kennedy this week. He could end up being an F7 keeper if he can come close to replicating his VFL numbers. I'm not expecting 30 possies a game at AFL level, but 21+ with a decent tackle count would go a long way towards an 80+ DT average. Does anyone know what he's like as far as tackling goes?

    Hmm not sure, vest comes into calculation with Couch but not really with Kennedy.

    Also over 21 posses is a fair effort for any melbourne player. Only two players have done it so far this year. Magner and Jones last week with 27.

    Good to see Kerridge, Treloar, Stevens and Shaw all named.

    Disappointed Dickson is out though....might need to trade him out now.

    Paine -out

    Longer (bris)- in

    Giles names at FF.

    Brodie Martin may get a start with Crows. Kerridge and Sam Shaw likely emergencies.

    Smedts named on extended bench.

    Given Stevens is on the extended bench does that make him any more or less likely to be emergency?

    Didnt take long for you to be second guessing whether Dickson is in the best 22 and also that Clay Smith wouldnt be a sub (2 weeks running):D

    Shame to see Dickson dropped before at least getting a chance to make a little $.. I think Im gonna keep him around and wait for another trade option later (Couch, Treloar, Kerridge, etc).

    No other rookies really putting their hand up and Im not convinced with Milera.

    C.Smith last on the I/C is worrying..vest candidate there, could trade him for Greene but I like young Clay, has an awesome PPM and Ill back him in to score well soon enough.

    Didn't expect Dickson to be dropped.

    He played well when he came on.

    I think Cordy may now be green vested, which is good news for Smith :thumbsu:

    Was considering sliding down to Marty Clarke this week but it looks like he's skating on thin ice


    B: Heritier O'Brien, Lachlan Keeffe, Heath Shaw
    HB: Nick Maxwell, Ben Reid, Tyson Goldsack
    C: Dane Swan, Luke Ball, Sharrod Wellingham
    HF: Dale Thomas, Chris Dawes, Ben Sinclair
    F: Dayne Beams, Travis Cloke, Alex Fasolo
    Foll: Darren Jolly, Scott Pendlebury, Steele Sidebottom
    I/C: Alan Toovey, Martin Clarke, Cameron Wood, Jarryd Blair

    In: Nick Maxwell, Sharrod Wellingham, Cameron Wood


    Can't see much room in that back 6 or midfield for him. Didak, Johnson and Taz to come back in.

    Didak > Sinclair
    Taz > Keefe
    Johnson > ??

    Plus he then has to avoid 2 vests

    It all depends on how well Cameron Wood performs. I am sure that Bucks would prefer to keep Dawes in the forward line rather than pinch hitting in the ruck.

    Having said this, I still rate Marty Clarke and I am bringing him in this week.

    Im considering Golby > Clarke...

    I think he should be safe in terms of being in best 22... Johnson isn't best 22... Plus they won't play wood all the time...
    But looking at that line up, the only candidates for the vests are Sinclair, Blair & Clarke... maybe Fasolo...
    And with 2 vests up for grab, chance of him being vested is higher than what I would like it to be...

    Thing is, I need Clarke playing in my backline until the bye at the very least, I can't afford him scoring less than 50... Otherwise might as well keep Golby...

    Make no mistake when Johnson is fit, which should be next week, he will play. He will certainly make things a bit harder for Marty Clarke, having said that, I think Golby>Clarke is still a good move. Get in early I say, I think by the time you'll want to trade him to an upgrade/downgrade target he will have a similar avg. to Golby.
