So if I didn’t have to get rid of Stew last minute was getting Prestia who would have gone on that pub crawl within 24 hours of being in my team. This season..

These last 4 weeks have been nothing but a disaster for me.

Rnd 19 projected 2470 into the last game, scored 2270
Rnd 20 projected 2430 into the last game, scored 2250
Rnd 21 Had to field 4 rookies
Rnd 22 Had to field 5 rookies with 1 of them a donut

Only had 1 rookie on the field in Rnd 17 but I've been belted from pillar to post since.

So as I stagger (drunkenly as well) into Rnd 23 I'm left with the faint hope that after trading Stewart > Steele and Reeves > Comben that my team can come together and deliver one last hurrah for 2021. The added inclusions of Lloyd-Brayshaw-Greene might, in some forlorn way, help too.

Best of luck to those Muchachos who are in GF's (Grand Finals too)



My injuries have me at 2 injured/ not named flogs for 2 named flogs.

Hate to see how they'd go if they ever got any bloody injuries....

Love ya mate, but you're way off on this one.

We've been smashed by injury this year. Barely anyone has played a full season - think it's just Hawkins, Bews and Blicavs from memory.

All of Cameron, Danger, Duncan, Guthrie, Stewart, Menegola, O'Connor, Tuohy, Ratugolea, Rohan, Henderson, Dahlhaus, Higgins, Miers, Atkins and Simpson, have all missed 2-10 Weeks+ for the season, with a ton of our seconds players copping injuries too. We've managed well, but people forget that at the start of the year, our forward line was decimated. Then our midfield got decimated, now our backline is copping it.

It's been probably our worst year for injuries, as it has been for a lot of clubs (yours included) - but we're definitely not exempt. Only Melbourne and Sydney have had a decent time of it.

Not sure about those TT outs. He had the Greene role last week; he won't with Greene back. Which hopefully means back into the midfield but who knows with Leon, maybe he'll play back pocket.

Anyway, planning
Ziebell -> Zorko
Bramble -> Burton

Bramble's been doing good but this does provide the satisfaction of a complete team and alliterative changes are always nice.

Accurate. Brilliant. Unlikely.

And there's a chance that Cogs comes back and slots into the forward line this week too. Surely that sees TT return to his on ball role... 🤷‍♂️

Hunter to Zorko imo.
5 of his last 7 weeks have been pretty disgusting.

So my dilemma is Zorko vs Parish basically. I'm leaning Zorko as Parish clogs up my midfield, Zorko allows me to loop Newcombe, Reeves (hoping he plays) and Peatling (if he plays). I need to field 2 rookies between those 3 plus Macrae and Strachan who I'm also bringing in as I think he can pump a 70. Parish in means Newcombe cannot be fielded and he has the most potential out of my rookies.

Don't like going in with rookies, but loopholing two reliable ones has been working out.....until this week.

Newcombe and Sharp playing at the same time!! Thanks, AFL.

I think the right decision is Zorko just on form. Parish could outscore him by 30 but I think you'd be unlucky in that scenario.

The good thing about this is every side in the 8 apart from probably Sydney (Can still finish 5th) has something to play for so resting might not be as bad as we think. But it’s bound to happen no doubt
