    My strategy has always been to ignore rucks and load up on mids.

    Rucks are kind of useless in category scoring; would be different if this were fantasy based though.

    Have to disagree, it's 1 category out of 9 and 1/22 positions so rucks certainly aren't useless. In fact due to there only being 1 you could argue your ruck is your most important player, though a good goalkicking mid who you can captain is more important. I've overvalued rucks in the 1st few years of this. You could argue I still do since I just took Witts at 29. :p

    If you get one of the top 3 or 4, sure. But mids give you coverage on more stats.

    Do we normally only have 18 on the field and 28 in total? What was the structure we use to go in with was it 5751? Guess it was 18, it looks kind of weird with the new setup.

    You got the long wait, probably more like 36 hours

    Used to be 5-7-1-5, yeah. I adjusted it to 28 total due to the shift to utilities which added one extra reserve.

    It's literally the same number of players onfield with a touch more flexibility so teams are less likely to be crippled by a positional injury crisis.

    Oh don't get me wrong I like the utilities add. I think I'm just use to dynasty with 22 on the field so the smaller set up feels a bit weird.

    Fair. Yeah, you wouldn't want 22 in a 16-man league - there's just way too many variables.

    Not enough depth either really, would be pretty thin.
