Def: Stewart; Sicily; Docherty; Doedee; Mcasey; Young (Starcevich; Brander)

Mid: Macrae; Cripps; Dangerfield; Bontempelli; Oliver; Rowell; Stephens; Pickett (McHenry; Maginness; Mead)

Ruc: Grundy; Gawn (Conroy)

For: Whitfield; Martin; Bonar; Hill; Cockatoo; Rankine (King; Cahill)

Bank: 16.3K


Most will look at this and see Bonar at F3, and consider it madness. That’s okay.

I don’t have Bonar at F3 because I believe Bonar’s a good option; I have him at F3 because in my opinion it’s the least worst of five bad options.

Here’s my thinking:

A.   I have eight 140K+ Rookies (and Brander at 133K). Of these eight, six are in the 180K – 210K bracket. This is the most cash I’ve ever invested in Rookies. It would be very easy to scrape 130K – 160K from my Rookies and turn Bonar into D. Smith / J.Steven.

If I had the confidence everyone else has in Smith/Steven, I’d do it. But I don’t believe they’re going to be in people’s teams at the end of the season (Smith for scoring reasons; Steven for fitness reasons). I also don’t have confidence in this year’s crop of 117K – 123K Rookies. There are a solid 6 – 8 options, but not the dozen or so we need. I hope the Marsh series proves me wrong, so I can address this weakness at F3.

My reading is we’re going to have an excellent second wave of Rookies we can downgrade to; but that we’ll need to pay more starting out the gate if our Rookies are to be the cash cows we need them to be.

B.   Assuming the following:

Def: Premium; Premium; Docherty   
Mid: Four Ultra-Premiums
Ruc: Grundy +
For: Whitfield; Martin

The key combination is M5 + R2 + F3

I have:

Bontempelli + Gawn + Bonar

(Yes, Oliver is M5 in my team; but even if I ran with four premium mids, I’m keeping Oliver... so for me it’s Bont that falls into the equation)

If someone can tell me a better option, I’d love to hear it.
If someone can suggest something completely different, I’d welcome the feedback.

I can see:

Walsh/Houston v Gawn v Steven
Bontempelli v ROB v Steven
Heeney v Gawn v Smith (next best)

All combinations will score within 10-15 points imo, but the reason I prefer Bont–Gawn–Bonar is that this is the only combination with two rock-solid guaranteed ultra-premiums (which means less trades to complete or correct).

Nice looking side CD, and I understand your logic behind it all even though I just prefer to be a bit more even across all lines and not have a rookie at F3 :)

Our sides are quite similar actually, but I've gone with the option you mentioned of Gawn/Heeney/Dev

I prefer Laird over Stewart too - Laird is super proven and Stewart is still in rehab so probably worth keeping that in mind. Plus, although Stewart is very consistent he doesn't often put up big scores that hurt by not having him

Laird - Stewart
Roberton - Doedee
Heeney - Bont
Dev - McAsey

That's pretty much the only differences between our sides at the moment :)

I've actually got approx 25k left, but I've gone with Houston over Sicily for now but Houston to Sicily or Stephens to Anderson/Caldwell are options with that. I'd really prefer to start Lloyd, so hopefully some cheap rookies pop up so I can downgrade an expensive rookie and bring in Lloyd

Thanks for the feedback, RD.

You're swinging me around to the possibility of a different structure (which I need!)... So thank you.

I like my structure a lot, but I feel yours (Heeney-Gawn-Dev) is safer, with similar point potential, but with more flexibility when we start in-season trading (the downside being the additional trade we'll need to complete our midfield; but the merits of this structure perhaps outweighs the cons).

I also appreciate the Stewart > Laird shout out. I think you're right about that.

Thanks, mate.

4 Premium Midfield Option:

Def: Laird; Sicily; Docherty; Roberton; Mcasey; Young (Stercevich; Brander)

Mid: Macrae; Cripps; Bontempelli; Oliver; Heeney; Rowell; Stephens; Prickett (McHenry; Maginnis; Warner)

Run: Grundy; Gawn (Conroy)

For: Whitfield; Martin; mystery 230k - 280k player; Bonar; Hill; Rankine (Flanders; King)

Bank: 2.3K

Notes:
- Heeney - Bonar flips the structure.
- Could swipe a few $ to turn my mystery F3 into D. Smith

I duno who this mystery player between 230-280 is but yes I scrolled through the options and none of them are even remotely good lol. I’m assuming you gambling in your rayner suggestion a few weeks back.

Good luck

Aside from that no issue with anyone else.

Not Rayner... within spitting distance of Rayner. Literally  ;)

Seriously though... the mystery player is not essential in my line up.

Most likely, I'll downgrade mystery player to a sub 200k premium rookie, and invest the cash in my premium mids i.e. Bont to Fyfe, and Oliver to Mitchell if I have the guts.

But I'm so desperate for another mid-priced forward that isn't Smith/Steven. I can honestly see me starting with Smith simply because most experienced coaches currently have him.

The important shift in my structure is Heeney at M5. This is the only other structure I'm currently considering to my Oliver M5 / GG set-up.

Actually... it's Bewley.

Have a feeling he could be a decent cash cow.

TBH... he's no longer in my team... I downgraded him to a Rookie and put the money into my my M8 Warner, who is now Noah Anderson.

I didn't mean to make the mystery player a mystery to solve. I'd love a 250'sh player that could make 150K, but the pickings are slim. I have a feeling about Bewley, Rayner, and Townsend, but honestly... not enough to risk it.

A couple of seasons ago I took Caleb Daniel for 280K as my F7, and he motored home averaging 95 or something silly post byes. I don't believe in Smith/Steven, so it feels like Heeney or Rookie at F3. As I said, would love 250-280K at F3 and Bonar at F4. That's why I placed mystery man Bewley there  :)
