Safety Bay apply for Aaron Naughton to have Permanent KPF added to his already position of KPD
Approved. I have a feeling he plays more key back from this point on but you can't deny he has been full time KPF for the Dogs in the first 6 rounds this season.

Yep...I normally play him down back anyway but definately deserved the KPF addition so that if I require him forward due to injuries etc then i have him.

Cheers mate

fightingfury_88 applying for Nick Haynes to be granted hardship KPD status this week with the non-selection of Nathan Brown, Steven May, and Ryan Garthwaite.

Also applying for Brennan Cox to be granted permanent KPD status and Patrick Ryder permanent KPF status.

Nick Haynes - Hardship KPD approved

Brennan Cox - KPD denied. Has only played one game. Not enough evidence to invoke a permanent KPP change.

Patrick Ryder - KPF approved. Has played enough games this season now to say he is playing as a KPF.

Bloody hell. My ruck situation is getting beyond a joke. Draper was right on the brink of a debut and he goes and gets a season ending injury. Any Liam Jones (who's been my hardship ruck) also goes out with an injury.

I have Keath and Mihocek who look most like they'd probably be ok ruckmen and are already in my 18. I'd need to replace them with kpps from outside my 18 but I have that cover if required.
After that I have Hurley, Hore and Tom McDonald but I don't think they're as good a choice as the other two.
Francis, Marshall and Collins are my other KPPs available for selection.

Who do you think is the best option for a hardship ruck to replace my hardship ruck? Keath? Mihocek? I'll apply for Keath as I have more KPD cover than KPF at the moment.

Tom McDonald is the one that has done the most rucking out of all of those so would be the most suitable IMO. Would leave Marshall and Mihocek as your on field KPFs. In case of a late withdrawal a KPP from your bench would take one of their places.

Happy to go with whatever you think is best. I was just thinking that if any one of those three goes down we need to do it all over again while I can still fill key defensive positions if I lose one or two of them.

Worth the question - Tom Langdon as hardship KPD? Lost a few of my KPDs to injury, and much like Collingwood last year, Langdon has had to step up and play KPD.

Apply for Eric Hipwood as KPD hardship if required for this week....

Also if he is needed I may be short up forward so one of Kruezer or Vardy as KPF hardship aswell whichever one you believe is more suitable

Apply again for Jeremy Finlayson to be KPF. Has played as a marking forward and kicked goals each week other than round 3. If not I'd like for him or Caddy to be a hardship KPF in the absence of Roughead and Stewart.

Finlayson approved as permanent KPF. Has enough games for evidence of a role change now.

Ok. The fears I raised over using Todd Marshall as a hardship ruckman have unfortunately become reality. My hardship replacement for my former hardship replacement now requires a hardship replacement, so let's do it all over again...

Apply for Alex Keath as hardship ruck. My only options now are key defenders and it's unlikely Keath will be dropped. He'll probably get injured this week though, but on the off chance he doesn't he seems to be the obvious choice for a hardship ruckman at this stage. I need some stability until I get an actual ruckman back in the team.

Approved as hardship.

Apply for Ben King to be a hardship KPD. Apparently he is a KPF, but according to his profile can play key forward or key back.

https://www.afl.com.au/news/2019-05-17/teams-adelaide-oval-fit-for-a-king-excricketer-to-pad-up

I should clarify that this would be from next week onwards.

Lester was a late call-up for Hodge and could slot in at CHB for this week. However Lester is every chance to not be selected next week and Plowman may be in doubt as well.
Now that the season has started I need more proof that he will be playing KPD at AFL level before granting permanent KPD status. Will grant hardship KPD status though and King should be selected as a KPD before Lester is.
