The Abusement Park is ready for 2018

What are we going to do here?

Birchall seemed the obvious option for most coaches as he has the runs on the board and looked like he was set for a full preseason. Now we have found out that he won't be running for the next couple of weeks. He now 'faces a race to be ready for round one' and that is enough for me to put a line through him for now anyways.

Going a 5 rookie backline would now be the ideal option but again at this stage I am not ready to lock that in as I don't see that many viable options down back. There is a real chance that only 1 or 2 of the top crop of draft picks start round 1 with none of Coffield, Naughton, O'shea, O'brien, Brander, Ling and Richards certainties. Doedee, Goddard, Morgan, Keefe and Murray are all a chance as well but do we see 5 being a genuine option? I don't think so.

Then we could go for a premium in that 450-500k range that we are thinking could take it too the next level but does anyone really want too spend that much money on there backline? I don't think so.

looks like a speculative pick of Brayshaw, McGrath, Mills, Wilson etc. might be the way to go for my team but I would like to hear everyone elses thoughts.

My original structure was always to run a 3/0/5 setup in defence. This is dependant on there being enough rookies that will play, If not then you need to adjust your team by downgrading on a stronger rookie line to upgrade D4.

Same thinking. Don’t want to spend too much on defence.
Depends on rookies available. So the question will remain as to who will fill D4 and won’t know the answer till R1 is about to start.

I looked at the rookie points in Def vs Mid vs Fwd and while you get more points from a Mid Rookie overall, the variance in points from Def prem to Def Rookie is smaller.
If you get unlucky and have a few low scoring mid rookies like last year and the def rookies were scoring more consistently. Could go the other way and see mid rookies as better this year. No one yet knows.

ATM D.4  is C Byrne of Carlton. Waiting to see how O'Meara, Lobb and CHristensen go as one of them could become a rookie and D.4  could go Laird or Williams with a little juggling. Very hard atm without knowing IF there'll be a line that is well endowed with rookies. Life would become very interesting indeed if this was the year where very few rookies got up to start Rd.1    Cheers.

Could this be Jackson Thurlow's year to break out???

2015 averaged 70 from 19 games
2016 didn't play
2017 averaged 55 from 10 games

Could he not only get back to his 2017 form but improve and push a 75 average?

Would that even be enough to consider starting him?

Or around the same price bracket + $18,200    Angus Brayshaw.    What could, would, he average IF injury free ??

Hit the nail on the head here fellas. It's all guess work here until Round 1 comes around. 3/0/5 is ideal and what I want to roll with, but whether we have that luxury is a complete unknown for another 2 months.

Seedsman at 300k is tempting. Will get loads of opportunity across half back and wing with Brodie Smith out for the year

Guess that was aimed at my post ha ha I could have been clearer MS was keen to have a 5 rookie set up they were just 3 players that could get a gig actually I'm optimistic there could be enough Norf has had a massive clean out there is bound to be some new faces there but of course you don't want 5 rookies if they are all scoring crap so it's a wait and see  ;)

Thought the same a couple of years ago at a slightly higher price about 320K and he was terribly frustrating has a great 1st or 2nd 1/4 then just disappears totally and it happened quite a lot and that was off the wing so am a bit wary of him
