Hmm, if I find other suitable trades it might be worth holding off then, on the other hand if memory serves me right rucks haven't been going big against us/Stanley this year and Ryder/Lycett is a good combo also.
Brayshaw, Walsh and ROB are doing my head in, as are the rookies who are suddenly making a bit of cash.
The neat little MBR trade sequence has well and truly gone out the window now - 13 trades left, 4 rookies to get off the field (one on each line - including ROB and Walsh) and four mid-pricers in Libba, Brayshaw, Brodie Smith, and Worpel to think about.
Bye planning during the big bash helped me plan for the AFL byes better this year around, so I have you to thank for it . But then again I had 20 penciled in for this 2nd bye round but team selections got me down to 18. So might end up being 18 next week aswell .
Walsh to Oliver gives me a bare 18 (including Rockliff)
Probably will do BSmith to Blakely to add an extra number. Brouch earns a reprieve after showing a better ceiling of late. I remember when Mouch broke out, he finished the season on fire so it’d be great if Brouch could push 105 and play every game (I’d be happy enough with that).
Currently 19 pre trades assuming all players with the RD13 bye retain their spots from RD12 and all players involved this week retain their spot. Young returning would make 20. W Setterfield, B Smith and C Burgess are the only players on the chopping block as Duursma and Hore will be kept a while longer so I likely end up with 20-22 after trades.
Current def apart from B Smith is J Lloyd, R Laird, Z Williams, H Andrews, M Hore, X Duursma and R Gardner with J Sicily/L Ryan the main targets. 9 trades left post RD13 and pre RD14 so Goldy will likely stay for the season.
