Much respect to Coach Rids on his no 1 year in RDT - he has gone hard so I don't know if he can have any trades left to have the team he has. I have followed his trading and he has not been afraid to sideways premium players through the byes - a luxury of building to a strong team so quickly i guess.

Last week i think he traded Goldy and Duncan to O'Brien and Taranto. I guess we will see if he moves Grundy on this week!

It will be interesting to hear the coaches panel at the end of the year to reflect on the season of some of their podcast crew

4th for the round (cannot believe it!) and shot up to 7th overall.

Now facing Ridley United for a shot in the eliminator grand final. Kudos to Rids, he appears to have sealed first overall - albeit, I will still provide everyone live trade updates!!
Good Luck Mate!!

Awesome mate. Poor round for me. Got hit pretty badly with the injuries/ poor scorers of the week. 1494. Drop from 2nd to 3rd.

I have had a further look into my match against Rids (in red). No trades have been pulled so at this stage it comes down to:

Def: Haynes & Houston + (Docherty) vs Crisp & Ridley + (Docherty)
Mid: Crouch, Merrett & Serong + (Coniglio) vs Taranto, Dangerfield & Gaff + (Coniglio)
Fwd: Greenwood & (Simpkin) vs Brayshaw & D. Smith

Rids definitely in the box seat after Gaff's 110 so trades will play a factor for the rest of the round. Rids presently has BZT & Close covering Docherty & Coniglio. Will wait until teams to reassess.

What a round! In the end, fielding Rivers over Docherty has put me through to the eliminator final! Thrilled
Wow mate, eliminator final! That’s probably a bigger achievement than winning the overall prize given how one bad week can kill you! Congrats mate and all the best.

Thank you all for the kind words. A lot of credit has to go to the knowledge and expertise of the users on this site which significantly helped me nail a strong starting side. Simply enjoying the ride from here, hopefully the luck continues to swing my way!

Never noticed this before , in Game Day Live Docherty is showing on my defenders bench along with my other 2 bench players.

Doch to Kade Simpson with my final trade likely for me for one last hurrah!
And done!

Final team
Lloyd, Maynard, Crisp, Ridley, Haynes, Simpson (McAsey, Ling)
Macrae, Oliver, Zerrett, JKelly, Titch, Duncan, Cripps, Gaff (Schoenberg, Bytel, ZFoot)
Gawn, Grundy (Conroy)
Whitfield, Dusty, Simpkin, Trac, ABrayshaw, DSmith (Riccardi, Woodcock)

A full premo team was achieved in Round 17 when I got Maynard for Rivers (didn’t gain me any points though!)
