LMurphy a handy in for me! Can look at his score and see if I need to trade if Simmo and JSmith are both out
Yep, this is my situation too with the three same players. Although I almost certainly won’t be trading even if Murphy posts a crap score.

Regarding the Poll "Who is most likely to challenge Richmond for the flag?"
If 'No Team' was a choice, I would have picked that one, as I still (one-eyed) think the Pies will win, I've would have been a lot more confident if Dunn and Treloar were playing.

Surely with Menzel & Buzza in... means danger will play a full game in the guts?
Worth some thought! I've given up selecting Danger for Capt, maybe he might score well at his old home ground, hmmm.

Tad surprised North Melbourne isn't listed in the poll, they only lost by 10 points in round 8.
Fair call. I’d created the poll based off flag odds and north and gws were paying $51. Hawks at $23.

Might be worth a fiver if you reckon your boys are a show..or more :p

Well if we make finals treloar is a chance to be back rd22 or 23 so that is ok and with Dunn, hopefully the sneaky chance Goldsack thinks he is comes to fruition and he can fill that void. What’s your thoughts on Darcy Moore. Believe he should be let play fwd. saw him play a ripper v west coast I think it was was jumping at everything and went off injured at half time. Has never shown anything since. Needs to build the confidence back up. We still have Aish, reidy, wells and Elliott to come back who I believe are all best 22 could be interesting if they can get all these guys fit and keep them on the park.

Who to select out of rookies Narkle and siers? Narkle looks a live wire but Siers potentially more solidified role whilst Treloar is out in the midfield. Thoughts?

Treloar will be good back for the finals, Dunn out hurts, as he was so solid in Defence. Goldsack back will help, I hope he spent a lot of time in the Gym though. Cox up forward seems to be doing the job now, so Reid or Moore could swap between forward and back. The injured players coming back, especially Elliott, would be great, but the boys are doing a good job at the moment, hmmm. Good depth, that's important to win a grand final. Richmond, at the moment, looks certain to be playing in the grand final and if the Pies will be there, then Dunn won't be missed as much. I wonder how venerable Richmond would be if they lost Rance or Riewold? Go Pies!!!

Brought in Webster for Austin this week as my D7 with my last trade and would greatly appreciate any advice/feedback on who I should loop for the D6 spot.

My defence is: R Laird, J Sicily, K Simpson, E Yeo, A Brayshaw, M Hurley and J Webster.

These are the players I'm considering to loop for D6

R Laird: Avg VS Geel since 2015: 75 from 4 (low of 59 and a high of 87)
K Simpson: Returning from injury
J Webster: Carlton concede the most 120+'s, concede the 2nd most points and score the least amount
M Hurley: Gold Coast concede the 2nd most 120+'s, concede the most points
A Brayshaw

Hopefully have a def/fwd dpp in fwd line

You didnt say who your d8 is, timing is helpful for free option.

Webster plays early, think him and Hurley. Whilst bulldogs mids are good, brayshaw does well against easier sides in my view.

Re conceding points, think teams give up big scores in different lines. Thompson though did go large vs GC last week.

Good point, I actually think Goldsack is an excellent matchup against Riewoldt in terms of both size and speed. Losing Dunn will certainly make it much more difficult for us to get to the grand final, but not sure how well he would've done against Jack.

Treloar is instrumental though, our midfielder has looked highly exposable after his injury, consistently losing clearances (especially centre ones). I imagine against Richmond we would get absolutely smashed in the middle, with all of our midfielders being better at boundary stoppages.

Regardless, looking at our team, we simply cannot be a legitimate threat to Richmond if we're still carrying blokes like Langdon, Crocker, Appleby, Maynard, Mihocek, Greenwood, Sier...

However, if our injured players all return as planned,

FB: Brayden Maynard ~ Darcy Moore ~ Tyson Goldsack
HB: Jack Crisp ~ Matthew Scharenberg ~ Jeremy Howe
C: Steele Sidebottom ~ Scott Pendlebury ~ Tom Phillips
HF: Jaidyn Stephenson ~ Jordan De Goey ~ Will Hoskin-Elliot
FF: Jamie Elliot ~ Mason Cox ~ Alex Fasolo
R: Brodie Grundy ~ Adam Treloar ~ Taylor Adams
Int: Josh Thomas, James Aish, Chris Mayne, Josh Daicos

Could beat Richmond quite convincingly...

Yeah, I like that team. Dunn would have been useful when playing against gorillas like Hawkins.
