No point saying the positives because they are obvious

Negatives however personally way too many question marks. Beams, JOM and Swallow to start off with in the same team I know plenty of people have it but how many games of football have they played in the last 2 years? Along with the likes of Higgins in the forward line as another player who has those issues. I know we have 2 trades a week but if they all fall and it happens to be close to the same time it sets you back a couple of weeks. While the Pendles pick I am not a fan of at all atm, the fact he has been limited to training and playing against the dogs a tough team to score against and being under done. I expect him to play but sounds strange to say but currently there is safer picks

I don't support the 2 underpriced ruckman, the rucks are the one position where DPP changes at 6, 12 and 18 don't change who the top ruckman are going to be. Along with the Power having a bye in round 9 meaning Ryder won't be playing

On the topic of the rucks, I think if you are playing both Ryder and Nankervis you need to have at least one in your forward line to make DPP effective.

Fair calls all around, I personally think all three of JOM, Beams and Swallow are worth the risk, especially in AF. As for Higgins, he was my last picked player, I would like to turn him into someone like Gunston but will wait for teams to be announced to have a look at rookies to see if I can find the cash. Fair enough on Pendles, had the cash to go to Treloar which I have done.

Reason I've gone for Nank and Ryder in the rucks is with cash generation in AF seemingly being a lot harder than the other comps, I decided why not fill the rucks with two players who should score well and make some cash, the extra trades obviously help as well. A few questions marks over the top tier rucks as well at moment plays into the decision and Ryder will hopefully be gone by R9 as well.

Cheers guys! :)
