    I think so.

    Who are people looking at for their R3 spot?

    I really don't know yet, I don't want to roll with a donut straight off the bat this season. Want cash, so will see who pops up over the Marsh series.

    No decisions yet. Maybe Xerri at this stage. If there's a rookie named round 1 I'll probably take them.

    I am open to having Naismith at R3 if cash allows...

    I was playing around with my side today and putting in all these guys I've publicly said "I'm taking"..... well guess what, I can't afford them all! I honestly think a 251k R3 is impossible.

    I did similar a few years ago with Witts.

    It really depends on the rookies. I'll pick them and fill the rest from there. Rookies, then R1/2 with rookie R3, then fill the remaining mid slots, then the must-have FWD and DEF. If there's enough rookies and discounted picks, sometimes there's more than $100k left which might allow it to work. Might be a better use rather than cash on the bench.

    Thinking of going Gawn as R1 instead of Grundy.

    Gawn in 26% of team. Grundy in 67%. Gawn slight POD and $6k cheaper. With Gawn as captain I think he'll be pushing hard.

    I know $6k isn't much but I in a season where cash will be scarce every $ could count.

    Other interesting observation is that the stats suggest that 7% of teams don't have either Grundy or Gawn !!!

    I can't not start with Grundy. Way too consistent and permanent C/VC option.

    I currently have Nicnat at R2. Still toying with Naismith at R2 and having 240k in bank to go early on a rookie price spike, latching onto a form premo before they get too expensive (eg Roberton/Noble up to a 480-500k def).

    So much uncertainty this season!

    Absolutely! I see the final teams - no Ash (GWS DEF rook) or Roberston (MRL MID rook). Aaahhh!

    I was watching the pre-amble to the game tonight and realised Grundy was up against Tim English. Locked in Grundy with 5 mins to go and banged the VC on him. Gotta be happy with that!!!

    How many here are starting Naismith over Gawn in R2?

    I think so. Simply because I have more faith in Naismith scoring 70 than the rookies I’ll be playing on field otherwise. Mind you I will feel sick every time Gawn plays.
