Hi Rowsus, unsure if you’re still responding to questions, understand if not. In case you are, here’s mine.
5 trades left, 3035 placed. Top 8 in all cash leagues. Have complete team plus English on the bench. Big deficiency is no Oliver. Only be trade option. Brayshaw (Freo) to Oliver, by way of Clark to Bazzo. Closes the negative POD, and gives me a D/F link to Voss. BUT leaves me 3 trades. Gotta be now or never as Bazzo is a good downgrade option if he keeps playing. Would appreciate your thoughts if possible. Thank you, DS.
Edit- I could also trade English and keep Brayshaw and have Boak at M9, but no flexibility other than possible loopholes. Keeping English feels smarter.
Hi d1ck,
long time no see!
I'd try and keep English.
I'm not sure about Bazzo's JS, but there's not many downgrade options with good JS floating around!
Brayshaw is a bit over-rated as a SC commodity (imo, I have him too). Draw a line through his season at any point after Rnd 2, and he averages around 105 after that point. His average is really being propped up by the first two Rounds!!!
I reckon Oliver could be a 15-20/Round upgrade on Brayshaw. Oliver does meet Port and the Bullies in Rnds 18 +19. and they both seem to be able to blunt good Mid scores against them, so you do have that to get through, but aside from that, his Draw looks pretty good! He also adds a C option to your list, and I don't know about you, but I'd never risk the C on Brayshaw, unless it was against North (maybe, but he doesn't play them again!).
I think I'd do it.
Good luck!

Legendary advice, thanks so much! Good to hear from you. I’ve been lurking plenty, not posting much! Take care!

WHo's your Brownlow tip Rowsus?
Pity the days of fleecing the bookies seem over...I can't find anything of value worth having a good old fashioned crack at...

I haven't followed as closely as I used to.
I'm thinking Neale will be leading Oliver coming into the last game, but Oliver will out-poll Neale in that game, and it will end in a Neale/Oliver tie!!!
