Here's where I'm at:Without knowing the rest of your team, I'd say that it looks great.
Yeah go neale if the b/es make sense and you can then get hurn next week.Here's where I'm at:

There's two things on my shopping list: Neale and Hurn
Whilst my midfield is "finished" so I could prioritise finishing the defence, this week looks to be the last when Neale will be affordable. But it does leave me looping rookies at D6 for another week or two.
So current plan is Logue -> Quaynor, Sprayshaw -> Neale.
That's midfield very complete, with Gray (or one other M/F) provided bench cover. Hurn's price isn't going TOO far, so I can make 3 trades over next fortnight to get him and get M/F link in the forward line so Gray can cover both lines.
Alternate would be Sprayshaw down to a rook, Logue straight to Hurn, backline done. Dunno if I'd ever get Neale in that case, though.
Which way to go? Get on the Neale train, or finish backline?
Edit: hmm, in writing it out, it seems idiotic NOT to fix the backline first. Get Thunder Thighs this week, deal with getting punished by Neale for the next month wishing I had him.
4 premos remaining away from a full team. Plus I might have the J. Kelly issue, but I think I wanna hold it out like I did with Whitfield.nice POD even if he is priced at his peak. i didnt realise his average was so good. 5 game average is elite.
how have you got so much cash and trades. how close are you to finishing your team?
I tend to hold injuries longer than most as well. Ordinarily I’d hold Kelly but I want to make a run at the top 100 and have trades in hand so I’ll be trading Kelly.4 premos remaining away from a full team. Plus I might have the J. Kelly issue, but I think I wanna hold it out like I did with Whitfield.
I've been much more conservative than I have in previous years.
Probably partly due to how rubbish rookies have been this year, and how annoying clubs have been with not playing their rookies and stuff.
If you are considering a non-playing donut in the future, then Weller could be decent. He'd be d6 now, but with the trades you've got he could be a floating m9/d7. Or if this won't happen, I'd probably go Crisp.Was planning on going Hore and Kelly to Sicily and Bont but because of Ross Bloody Lyon, I have to deal with the Louge situation.
So I'm thinking Hore to Sicily and Logue to either Crisp, Houli or Weller. Who would you take out of those three?
Unfortunately with leave Kelly on my bench and means I have to play Clark and Setterfield, but thats better than a donut.
This leaves me with 9 trades so I can fix that issue next week.

Hill from GWS @$117k getting a go this week apparently. Otherwise maybe look at one of the $102k guys that'll never play a game (Owies, Wicks, off the top of my head), just to flip flip back and forth with your actual M/F bench cover.Looking for good M/F rookie/cheap options.
Most likely trades will be to cash in on ROB, swing Bines into R3.
That cash will turn Hore into Hurn (Logue to D7).
Then looking for that M/F link so that after next week's trades i can utilise Heeney as a M/F bench cover.
Alternatively, Logue and Hore to Hurn leaves me with about 120k for a Def Rookie. Not sure there's many options there?
I'm leaning towards Crisp since he is pretty reliable.If you are considering a non-playing donut in the future, then Weller could be decent. He'd be d6 now, but with the trades you've got he could be a floating m9/d7. Or if this won't happen, I'd probably go Crisp.
Yeah initially was thinking Owies. If i could get someone who 'might' play, could be beneficial. But then again, with $$$ a bit tight, that extra $15k to just get a floating donut could be a goerHill from GWS @$117k getting a go this week apparently.

I'm looking for something similar in the next week or two so Gray, Heeney, etc can provide flexible cover across midfield and forward.
