Certainly looked out of sorts, Jackson had way more time in ruck than usual. He did cop a solid forearm to the scone in the 1Q, but I also wonder if he got Nanked last week and was just a bit sore in general?He’s injured. Didn’t even jump off the ground at ruck contests. Just stayed down.
You'll bounce back mate.Nightmare round for me, scored 1901 dropped from 868 > 2101. Got distracted by family stuff and missed taking the C off Gawn yesterday and missed banking Grundy's 144 VC score. Started FMacrae on-field over McCreery at the last minute. 100 points gone begging and unnecessary 1k drop just from those 2 f'ups. Did manage to raise my bank balance to 350k through so will at least be able to make 2 upgrades this week.
All good. It's not my first or last sh*t round mate. GnR can be very up and down once the Rd1 rookies start to tire as you'd know. Got to get them off the field asap. Cash gen also a huge problem with the benchies for the second year in a row, but everyone's in the same boat with that.You'll bounce back mate.
sh*t luck right there.
Chapman killed us this week.All good. It's not my first or last sh*t round mate. GnR can be very up and down once the Rd1 rookies start to tire as you'd know. Got to get them off the field asap.

It's going to get even harder to get funds together after next round since our remaining benchies have f'all $ value. Might end up having to cash in Flynn a week or two before he's ready to cull.Chapman killed us this week.
Plus having to play Rowe over Dusty.
I have 7 rookies on ground atm but Chappy is the worst then Warner, Scott and SP Bergman at F4-F6.
Powell and Jordan the studs at M7 and M8 aren't going anywhere anytime soon.
I just can't seem to upgrade my D5 and D6 quick enough. I now have to go Chappy > Fredrick so now Kosi at D5 and Fredrick at D6.
Plan is to upgrade Kosi > May!\Ridley next week, just have to get the funds together. $180k in the kitty now.
I'm going to trade Rowe > Dawkins via F.Macrae next week to make some cash and then use my other trade to go Kosi > May\Ridley.It's going to get even harder to get funds together after next round since our remaining benchies have f'all $ value.

Yeah it sucks balls. Ruins trade plans, brings up loophole or donut concerns, also have to spend more time looking for team news. I'm lucky that I work in front of a computer and I don't have kids, so I have that extra time, but I've still missed a heap of Saturday night team announcements being out at dinners/events. I've traded early a few times, thankfully it hasn't screwed me over yet.Been playing for a decade but since they have changed the team announcements until the day before, including Saturday, I have completely lost interest this year.
Thursday was the day, tidied up the team at 6 on Friday, then lockdown.
Has anyone else felt the same this year? Just have no interest in spending three plus days updating/checking.
How good is his site? So accurate, absolute marvel.
Really did finish 2nd on the round
Second time finishing second, always the bridesmaid...
Absolutely rapt (but a fair bit is random variance - landing in the top 10-100 over the season is orders of magnitude tougher tbh- have essentially won lotto twice. Rare, but it happens.)
