    Round 2 Trades

    Not that I'm expecting many to make trades but figured it would be good to get a thread up to discuss those that impressed and those that failed to do so.


    Without looking closely, it seems like rucks failed to fire at all this round, at least from a DT POV with one of the best not really a ruckman and kicking a bag of 5. I'm guessing such a low scoring round didn't help as it would have meant less centre bounces and repeated contests there.

    Will admit to having a sigh of relief when I saw Goldstein finish on 95 given he was on about 45 at 1/4. Still kind of kicking myself over that due to the fact I don't have Lloyd in my side (Witherden instead) and I had to cash in on Clarke who I dare say has a decent chance to get a game for Essendon with how poor they were (McKernan in particular being one he's in competition with).

    Re: Round 2 Trades

    Iím thinking about some rookie corrections, but not sure whether to give them another week.

    Paid $208K for Sam Collinsí 21 DT points, and missed Duursma. Thatís one possible correction.

    Also missed out on Bailey Scott due to a brain fade in this format and have Burgess and Balta in the forward line.

    Premiums generally performed (other than Grundy/Gawn) and the midpricers did their job for week 1.

    Re: Round 2 Trades

    No trades this week. Set up my team to have bailout options for my midpricers, so ill wait another week to see how Ballard/Ridley and Weideman/McCarthy go.

    Most interesting part of week one is how badly all the rucks scored. Only the ones that kicked multiple goals scored well. Reminds me of a couple of years ago (might have been last year?) when it was glaringly obvious that CD had changed how the rucks scored from HtA. And all of a sudden after two rounds is mysteriously went back to normal. They have a habit of changing things each year and not saying a thing.

    Re: Round 2 Trades

    Martin to Rocky in DT- not having Rocky will kill me if he continues to go big, and Martin's role was ok but not fantastic. Having already made the trade, I expect Martin will put up 150 this week

    Re: Round 2 Trades

    Some info on Gawn
    https://www.theage.com.au/sport/afl/...25-p517en.html
    Max Gawn was hospitalised only days before his underwhelming performance in Melbourne’s season opener.

    The dual All Australian ruckman spent time in hospital to treat a skin condition late last week, only a few days before taking to the MCG for the Demons’ clash with Port Adelaide.

    The ailment was above the knee on Gawn’s left leg. He played the game with a bandage over the affected area, as well bandaging on the lower part of his right leg, which he generally protects as well.
    The Age understands Melbourne declared Gawn fit to play and that the issue was not a major concern in the lead up to the game.

    MRP News:
    8 players fined, no suspensions.


    Houli injury:
    Has had a scan on hammy today, not sure yet if anything more than cramp.


    Paddy McCartin:
    Probably won't be available for the next month at least due to another head injury.

    Taylor Adams:
    Will play in the next couple of weeks (not this week).

    Dan Hannebery:
    Unlikely to be available for AFL selection for at least another month.

    Josh Caddy:
    Should be available for VFL in a couple of weeks, with a view to getting match fitness for AFL.

    Noah Balta:
    Being considered to fill the void left by Rance's ACL as he played both back and forward last year at VFL level.

    Re: Round 2 Trades

    watching rockliff for another week, if he fires again then I'll take gawn (or grundy) down to Goldy (assuming they continue as this week) and use the extra cash to upgrade Libba to Rocky

    but really, that's assuming R1 is repeated which it probably won't be.
    TEX WALKER. that is all.

    I had a dream last night that Dom Sheed scored 191SC in round 2.

    I'm not sure Perth could handle that happening, Eagles fans and Sheed is already toxic.
