You have a sound team. Only possible change I would look at and it depends on your thinking for Hall is Hall to Millera (Millera looks the goods and on the verge of a huge price rise)

Cheers Ringo & G.D., I hear ya' mate and was contemplating that move, however, it would require two trades as I only have $5900 in the bank...

Goddard, Broughton, Deledio, Shaw, Clarke, Bugg, Ellis (Morris, Allen)

Ablett, Pendlebury, Murphy, Selwood, Magner, Shiel (Treloar, McDonald)

Kreuzer, Giles (Redden, Stephenson)

Franklin, Fyfe, Martin, Sidebottom, Porplyzia, Goodes, Smith (Dickson, Hall)


$5900

Traded Ledger for Treloar. Dickson can wait, (I guess???)
Want to trade Fyfe, but I can't decide on moving him into the midfield to do so and for who...

Would love "Boomer" but cannot afford him, and I take it Fyfe is going to drop a lot? Maybe Barlow, Chapman, Lewis, Selwood, etc.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated...

They're talking about Fyfe playing - will you hold if he does?

Fyfe's named, so I'd sit tight Donnie.
You're not copping any zero's this week, unlike alot of other people (including myself   :-[ )
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Ringo on April 20, 2012, 05:21:46 PM
I would sit No use trading unless improving team and i can not see an advantageous trade for Fyfe with the cash you have. Unless you want to use Treloar DPP move Fyfe to mids and trade in Barlow but not 100% sold on this.
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Donnie Brasco on April 20, 2012, 05:41:24 PM

I thought about that Ringo and have also been contemplating Shaw to Carrots...

Carnage out there from a few late withdrawals.

I hope you went Fyfe to Boomer!

Post by: Donnie Brasco on April 21, 2012, 11:27:30 AM
Didn't have enough cash, thought I'd keep him, have a look.

Went Shaw to Carazzo. Thinking possibly Fyfe to Barlow next week...

Kreuzer, Giles (Redden, Stephenson)

Franklin, Lewis, Martin, Sidebottom, Porplyzia, Goodes, Treloar (Dickson, Hall)


$37,900

20 trades left


After hearing about his scare at training, I finally bit the bullet on Fyfe this week and traded him for Lewis. My non-playing rookies are worrying me, something I should have taken care of weeks ago!


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated... thanks guys!
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: bomberboy0618 on May 01, 2012, 06:53:00 PM
Lewis makes me jumpy...
I like the rest of your team though! A possibility is Malceski and Clarke to a premium defender and a rookie but wouldnt.
Cant really suggest anything that is a worry at the moment. Just have a look and see if instead of Lewis you can get Harvey for the byes.
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Ringo on May 01, 2012, 07:50:07 PM
I would wait for this weeks teams as well with doubts about Porps as well. If Porps is out for any length of time may be able to downgrade and get some cash for other upgrades as well.

Lewis also worries me a little in that will he continue to score well. Harvey and Dangerfield are other options for Fyfe.




Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Donnie Brasco on May 01, 2012, 08:05:13 PM
Thanks for the advice guys!

Regarding the premium defender I've gone Shaw to Carrazo to Malceski, so haven't had much luck ha ha...

Regarding Lewis, I hear what you're saying, but by the same token, it seems Boomer's getting old and can Dangerfield keep it up?

Whats the deal with Allen? 

Would consider a double upgrade.

Shiel/Magner > Zaha/SJ/Chapman/Beams
Porplyzia > Zaha/SJ/Chapman/Beams
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Donnie Brasco on May 16, 2012, 09:56:50 PM
Cheers Charlie!

I forgot to mention that I'm not too fussed about the byes as I'm going for league win and am 5-0...

I have no idea about Allen, have you heard anything mate?
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: charliesheen on May 16, 2012, 10:17:47 PM
In that case you probably won't need Bugg/Ellis.  You could upgrade one of them to a premium defender like Birchall, and grab another forward through Shiel/Magner to open MPP.

Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Donnie Brasco on May 17, 2012, 02:14:26 PM
Should I even consider downgrading Bugg/Ellis to Spurr or would that be ridiculous considering the money I have in the bank?

Then Shiel/Magner to Zaharakis...
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: charliesheen on May 17, 2012, 02:29:09 PM
Double upgrade for sure.  I would probably lean towards

Ellis > Birchall/Scotland/etc.
Shiel > Zaharackis/SJ/Chapman

Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Donnie Brasco on May 17, 2012, 02:35:07 PM
Thanks again Charlie, much appreciated!

I'm leaning towards keeping Magner, but as for the other two, I'm not too sure... please correct me if I'm wrong, but as far as I know Ellis has quite a bit of money to make and he should be able to do that, however Bugg is pretty much cooked? Is he a keeper? What would you do mate?
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Donnie Brasco on May 17, 2012, 02:40:55 PM
Ha ha... sorry mate, you pretty much answered my question as I was typing.

I'm a Richmond man, so that doesn't help my decision!

Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: charliesheen on May 17, 2012, 02:51:47 PM
You know what...

Can you afford to go Allen > Lake and Shiel > Zaharackis

Would get rid of dead weight and would set up your team perfectly for the byes (even though going for league)
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...

Hmmm.... now what to do with Murphy, Bugg, Magner, etc... considering the little gun, Cotch (carn the tiges') and Dal Santo.
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: charliesheen on May 21, 2012, 08:21:26 PM
Thats a good score considering you had Murphy.

Adams/Treloar/Smith (whoever is not named) > Zorko
Murphy > NDS/Mitchell

Use remaining cash to grab R12 premium forward the following week.
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Donnie Brasco on May 21, 2012, 09:49:47 PM
Thanks again for your expertise Charlie!

I forgot to mention that I'm still unbeaten and on top of my league and have a kind draw ahead, playing the two bottom teams...

Does that change your thoughts mate?
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: mmark on May 21, 2012, 10:31:39 PM
Adams/Treloar/Smith (whoever is not named) > Zorko
Murphy > NDS/Mitchell

Use remaining cash to grab R12 premium forward the following week.

+1

Agree with this but I'd also add Cotchin as an upgrade option. He gets to every contest, has great efficiency and likes to kick the ball alot (2.3:1 kick:handball ratio in 2011!)
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Donnie Brasco on May 22, 2012, 11:42:42 AM
Cheers guys! Yeah, being a Richmond supporter, I'm definately considering CotchGUN! He's becoming an elite player, if not already, and I'm sure he will become a champion of the club and game.

Don't worry about Bugg at the moment???
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: charliesheen on May 22, 2012, 12:10:42 PM
Keep Bugg for byes or trade him for Darley the following week.  See if they can fit into same team, not sure yet.
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Donnie Brasco on May 25, 2012, 05:13:25 PM
Who makes way for Zorko... I have been pondering this for the past day and a half, my brain really hurts ha ha!
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: charliesheen on May 25, 2012, 05:15:28 PM
Whoever you don't think will make it through the byes (R12, R13).  Coin toss.
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: charliesheen on May 25, 2012, 05:17:43 PM
Could also sell Hall if you think his finished.

No point having R13 rookie if he doesn't play.
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Donnie Brasco on May 25, 2012, 05:53:11 PM
Thanks again Charlie, I'm leaning towards Smith, purely on average and value.

After that trade, I'll have $683,300. I know Mitchell is superb value, but I'm very tempted to go Scotty Tee, Jobe, etc... as always, would love to get your thoughts mate!
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Donnie Brasco on May 28, 2012, 05:03:13 PM
2,111... stinker!


Thinking Bugg/Morris to Darley which then allows me to go Treloar to Beams... what do you guys think?
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: charliesheen on May 28, 2012, 05:29:41 PM

Yeah think its worth taking a stab at Darley if Kennedy not named.

Lets see which GWS rookies are named, but reckon Treloar position looks safe atm.

Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Ringo on May 31, 2012, 09:17:40 PM
Bugg to Darley is fine but I would upgrade Porps rather than Treloar who has a negative B/e and more cash to make.
 Anyone of Beams, Chappie or Stevie J would be ok for your team.
Any reason why Zaha in mids? Swap with Zorko.
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Donnie Brasco on May 31, 2012, 09:34:05 PM

I just assumed Porps would make a handy 7th forward? Who would you select first out of those three mate...
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Ringo on June 01, 2012, 05:48:54 AM
Up to you whether you keep porps or not but personally I think he is at his ceiling. May be proven wrong and that is the joy of SC.  I would rate the three in this order Beams, Chappie and Stevie I but just my opinion others may rate differently. 

This poll may help you but includes Zaha

Thanks again Ringo. Regarding Porps, I wasn't having a go at you at all mate, you gave me a completely different point of view that I hadn't really considered.

With the other three, I like your way of thinking, that's how I see it. Just wanted to check with an expert ha ha...
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Ringo on June 01, 2012, 09:50:00 AM
No worries did not think you were having a go at me at all so no offence. Just gave my opinion on Porps for you to consider and I am no expert as can be seen if you check my own SC rating.
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: charliesheen on June 01, 2012, 02:13:55 PM
Ya

Bugg > Darley
Porps > Zaha/SJ/Chapman/Beams/Robbo/Nroo

I would go Beams personally.  Basically Sidebottom, but with some durability issues.
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Donnie Brasco on June 04, 2012, 08:46:46 AM
Another stinker, courtesy of Kreuzer, Thomo, Lake, Horsely and Pendles as captain! Just made it over 2000.

I really want to get Priddis in after his bye, but I'm not quite how I'm going to achieve that with only $61,400... nothing like first world problems to keep you up at night. 12 trades remaining...


Goddard, Broughton, Deledio, Clarke, Lake, Ellis, Morris (Malceski, Darley)

Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Ringo on June 04, 2012, 09:17:04 PM
A suggested trades for you but your decision and go with gut. Dependent on Rookies named as well so may need to adjust.
This week.
McDonald to Sexton
Horsley/Treloar to Dal Santo
Round 12
Morris to S Shaw
Magner to Priddis
Completes your mids - Ablett, Pendles, Thompson, Selwood, Dalsanto and Priddis.
Only 8 trades left though
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: charliesheen on June 04, 2012, 09:59:57 PM
Probably selling both Adams & McDonald desirable.  Reckon Treloar will hold spot in byes.

Wouldn't worry too much about Horse/Magner BE's assuming they are named.

Zaharakis???
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: charliesheen on June 13, 2012, 09:23:54 PM
Maybe look at Zaha > S.Gibson.

and do a set of upgrades the week after.  I would also look at Kreuzer > Griffin in week 13.
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Donnie Brasco on June 14, 2012, 03:29:55 PM
Thanks Charlie.

Am I right in saying, that you think that I should scrap both of those trades and only downgrade Zaharakis, upgrades next week...


Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: charliesheen on June 14, 2012, 04:34:02 PM
Ya.  Only take Priddis if you need to look for value due to terrible trade situation.  If you think you have enough trades, take the R12 premiums in R13.

To free up even more funds for R13, you can even go

Zaha > Gibson
Eski > S.Shaw

Post by: Donnie Brasco on June 14, 2012, 04:43:36 PM
Thanks mate, very interesting... I just assumed that getting Priddis was a given, hadn't thought otherwise.

As it stands, I have 10 trades left, is that ok?
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: charliesheen on June 14, 2012, 04:44:33 PM
you probably want about ~5, assuming you have completed your team before R14.
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: charliesheen on June 14, 2012, 04:45:44 PM
you could grab Kreuzer>Naitanui this week, unless you wanna gamble on the Griffin in R13.
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: charliesheen on June 14, 2012, 04:48:35 PM
anyway don't do any trades until Friday.

I say skip Priddis better options.
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Donnie Brasco on June 14, 2012, 04:53:49 PM
Hmmm... I'm not overly happy with my team, it feels a bit scrappy ha ha!

I was at the game, Griffin was very impressive against BIG IVAN, but as you say quite risky...
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: charliesheen on June 14, 2012, 05:34:17 PM
Grabbing Naitanui this week, will potentially allow you triple upgrades next week.

If you grab Griffin next week, you probably limited to the 2.  Griffin does open up a differential that noone has though whether positive or negative.

Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: My Chumps on June 14, 2012, 06:33:13 PM
I recommend Nic Nat, but I guess it kinda depends on how you're travelling in your leagues.
If you're doing well, I'd go Nic Nat, but if you're doing poorly and need a POD, Griffin could be a masterstroke for you.
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Donnie Brasco on June 14, 2012, 09:08:47 PM
At the very last minute I went...

Malceski > Shaw
Kreuzer > Naitanui

Would it be completely stupid if I also brought in Gibson for Zaharakis?
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: charliesheen on June 14, 2012, 10:21:28 PM
Naitanui :)

With Giles out probably should have done GIles > Naitanui, but nothing can do about it now.

Oh no, I didn't realise Giles was out! Oh well, Kreuzer has been a nightmare, but wouldn't you know it, he finally got a half decent score...

Charlie, do you think I should make another move today?

Reckon you can afford to bench Zaha in your leagues for 1 month?

You probably want Swannie this round.  Maybe Gibson downgrade.

Not sure mate... I've only had a couple of losses, these past two weeks, as luck would have it!

I'm all ears Charlie, what are you suggesting?
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: charliesheen on June 18, 2012, 06:51:17 PM
Did you lose this week even with Naitanui?

I dunno, definitely get Swan this week, not sure on whether you should just cut your losses on Zaha.  A lot depends on how confident you are in your leagues.

Cloke is a cheap option.

Horsley > Swan
Treloar > Cloke

anyway to do it with magner and horsley?

Post by: Donnie Brasco on June 18, 2012, 07:35:35 PM
Yeah thanks Charlie, I was just looking at...

Magner > Gibson
Horsley > Swan
Treloar > Cloke

Would you believe I'm $4000 short, might have to look at Horse to Watson? What do think mate...
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...

Would you consider Hawkins?
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: charliesheen on June 18, 2012, 07:46:35 PM
nah rather take cloke over hawkins.

Cloke has North in R21.  could potentially smash them during finals.
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Donnie Brasco on June 18, 2012, 07:53:20 PM
Fair call Charlie.

I guess it's Watson compared with Swan, likewise Crozier and Gibson...
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: charliesheen on June 18, 2012, 08:10:48 PM
Bombers have Carlton R21.  Bit scared of Carrots tag :)

Sydney vs WB could be worth it.  Josh Kennedy could beast it.  Inside player, don't think Picken will affect him.

Ha ha... I've got no idea! Thinking I might hold off on Cloke then in order to get Swanny...
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: charliesheen on June 18, 2012, 08:23:07 PM
your going to need Cloke, if your keeping Zaha for 1 month.

Can't afford to play both Zorko and Treloar on field at same time.  Zorko is good for F7 for year.
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Donnie Brasco on June 19, 2012, 08:15:46 AM
Thank you, once again, for your time and effort Charlie, much appreciated!

I've been pondering this all night and came up with this...

Switch Zaharakis and Sexton, then trade Zaharakis > Gibson/Crozier
                                                            Horsley > Swan/Watson/Kennedy
                                                            Treloar > Chapman/Stevie J/Walker/Pavlich


Team would look like this...



Goddard, Deledio, Lake, Broughton, Clarke, Darley, S.Shaw (Ellis, Morris)

Ablett, Thompson, Dal Santo, Swan/Watson/Kennedy, Selwood, Pendlebury (Magner, Gibson/Crozier)

Natanui, Giles (Redden, Stephenson)

Franklin, Dangerfield, Martin, Sidebottom, Beams, Chappy/Stevie/Pav/Walker/Roughy, Zorko (Sexton, Hall)



Would leave me with 5 trades and around $40,000.




Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Donnie Brasco on June 19, 2012, 09:31:23 AM
Or (ha ha!)...


Zaharakis > Gibson
Horsley > Swan
Hall > Roughead


Would really love some advice from you too Ringo (another expert!)

Post by: charliesheen on June 19, 2012, 10:12:34 AM
If you get rid of Treloar means you have Sexton & Hall as fwd bench.  Not sure I want that.
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: charliesheen on June 19, 2012, 10:20:36 AM
Think just KISS

Hall > Gibson/Crozier
Horsley > JPK
Zaha > Cloke

Gives you have a bench of Magner & Treloar in case of late outs.

How much cash left over if you do this?
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Donnie Brasco on June 19, 2012, 10:26:32 AM
Yeah Charlie, I hear you mate. Thanks!


Zaha > Gibson
Horsley > Swan
Hall > Any forward under $503,000...

O'Keefe, Petrie, Johnson, Roughead, Walker, Pav, Rioli, Bennell, Tippett, Robinson, etc...????


Do you think keeping Magner is a worry?

Keep Magner.  Cover for injuries in midfield.

Post by: Donnie Brasco on June 19, 2012, 10:59:06 AM
If I do...


Hall > Crozier
Horsley > JPK
Zaha > Cloke


I'll have $163,000 & 5 trades remaining. JPK over Swan...
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: charliesheen on June 19, 2012, 11:33:03 AM
JPK is going to beast it with Goodes & Mumford back.  He is pretty much matching Selwood right now.

Sydney always peak about this time.

Extra cash = upgrade to Carrazzo in back line maybe...

No trades this week (although I'm open to suggestions!) Carrazzo the following...
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Ringo on June 27, 2012, 05:16:32 PM
maybe tempted to go Clarke to Suckling but your decision - Clarke with a high B/e and Suckling a lowish one may maximise trade and cash.
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Donnie Brasco on June 27, 2012, 07:25:54 PM
Cheers Ringo, I like it! Makes sense... I'm just paranoid about only having 5 trades, so haven't really been considering much lately.

I'm assuming that means forgetting Carrazzo altogether...
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Ringo on June 28, 2012, 05:12:03 PM
It was only a suggestion mate to consider.  Both options are good but with trades you could only do the one but it is a matter of when maximise both this week  or hope that Clarke does not drop as much as Carazzo. Decisions!!
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: charliesheen on June 28, 2012, 05:39:04 PM
I think there are 2 options.

A) 3 trades remaining: pick 2 X ~400K defenders, Darley as D7

B) 2 trades remaining: downgrade and pick 2 X defenders you want, Clarke as D7
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Donnie Brasco on June 28, 2012, 06:24:59 PM
Thanks again guys! This week maybe...

Clarke > Heppell
Morris > Golby/ Thompson

Probably the best combination possible in my situation, Charlie, if I look at using 'A', as Suckling would leave me just short of being able to afford Thompson, therefore only slim pickings would remain, the likes of Goldsack, etc...
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: charliesheen on June 28, 2012, 11:32:06 PM
I would personally just risk it and go down to 2 trades,

Magner > Docherty (yeah they are not named but will be in future)
Ellis/Morris > Rance/Birchall/Hurn/Suckling/etc.
Rookie > Carrazzo

Push Clarke to F7, he should be back next week.  Could keep one of Ellis/Morris for long term coverage just in case.
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: Ringo on June 29, 2012, 05:50:25 AM
Just a little concerned with Docherty CS for him.  Main reason this week was the perfect opportunity for him to be named with Maguires injury but it would appear both Yeo and Crisp are ahead of him.  Would he be better to go Yeo than Docherty.
Title: Re: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right...
Post by: charliesheen on June 29, 2012, 12:57:47 PM
Pretty confident Docherty will get games towards end of season.  Only matter of time before Drummond goes down.

Post by: Donnie Brasco on August 06, 2012, 05:53:18 PM
Finished 2nd & 4th in my leagues and like everybody, my past couple of weeks have been great. Still, only ranked an embarrassing mid 13,000 though!

Anyway, 2 trades and around $8,000 left...


Deledio, Goddard, Suckling, Lake, Carrazzo, Ellis, S. Shaw (Broughton, M. Clarke)

Ablett, Kennedy, J. Selwood, Pendlebury, Thompson, Dal Santo (Yeo, Crozier)

Naitanui, Giles (Redden, Stephenson)

Dangerfield, Beams, Sidebottom, Franklin, Cloke, Martin, Zorko (Treloar, Sexton)


Any ideas greatly appreciated, thanks guys!

Post by: Ringo on August 07, 2012, 10:40:31 AM
With only 2 trades and seemingly not needing to trade aas you have the second chance would sit on 2 trades.  Will be handy in the next couple of weeks.

If you get defeated then next week look at your opponents team and trade to cover your weak area.

Ablett, Kennedy, J. Selwood, Pendlebury, Thompson, Dal Santo (Yeo, Crozier)

Naitanui, Giles (Redden, Stephenson)

Dangerfield, Beams, Sidebottom, Franklin, Cloke, Martin, Zorko (Treloar, Sexton)

Def - Ellis, Broughton and Clarke are out so this needs work. Broughton $369700.

Yarran or Suckling?

Then Selwood out for whoever?
