Hore > Burgess (for linkage with Keira)

Obviously I like this as it's pretty close to my own set up. (Not a fan of Walters TBH)

The only thing I'm having second thoughts about is going in without a legit top3 Def as potentially we could well have to upgrade all 6 defenders.

I would consider Mills > Whitfield & Walters > Greene if Punchy is named for Rd1.

Don’t think he improves this year much?

I think he will improve, and hopefully stays injury free.

You look at him sometimes and think, he is going to be unbelieve, but then you don't see him for a quarter.

I think he'll be a impact player, playing mostly forward and despite a flash of brilliance here and there, he won't be a 85+ Sc scorer.

yeah i know defense is super skinny but i just cant bring myself to pick Punchy.
i've still got $52.5k in the kitty though so Scrim to Burgess, and Walters to Lycett gives me just enough to go Mills > Whitfield.
and it gives me a back up ruckman.

downgrading Cousins to a $123k rook also a money making option. I'm not convinced that either Scrimshaw or Cousins are guaranteed round 1 starters anyway.

Really like the Lycett pick. Has been in and out of my F4 several times this week.

definitely considering this if Scrimshaw doesnt make round 1 even if it does break my no Gold Coast players rule.

Cousins to a 123K rookie and Scrimshaw > Hanely also works but it feels a bit like robbing Peter to pay Paul.
**** peter hes a campaigner

How long is Ryder out for?

6 weeks? :think:
This article from Adelaide Now 4 days ago makes it sound like he might not miss any weeks...

"PORT Adelaide is not putting a timeline on Paddy Ryder’s return to football after the ruckman had surgery for a depressed cheekbone.
Ryder suffered the injury in an accidental head clash with teammate Robbie Gray in the final quarter of Saturday’s JLT Series win over North Melbourne at Alberton Oval.

While coach Ken Hinkley was bullish his star big man would be available to play Melbourne at the MCG on March 23, the Power did not detail his expected recovery time in its injury update on Monday.

In a statement the club said Ryder had undergone successful surgery and was enjoying four days off training like the rest of his teammates."

First thing I've been doing looking at sides this year, is looking at the number of on-field rookies ......you've got 6 ATM, same as me

You've also got 2 on-field in DEF .....same as me ....except I'm not happy with 2 onfield DEF Rookies & having Ridley would make me even more nervous

I'd have Moore in DEF with a fWD DPP bench player.....My problem is I already have Moore in DEF as my D4 .....so I have to find a D5 having, like you, so many DEF Mid-pricers

I would feel nervous with Steele .....although Saints have a good 4 game start ....but I think M.Crouch would be the better option IMO
