Round 17 saw the tragic injury merry-go-round continue… In keeping with Sloane and Rockliff’s double-injuries this year, Ablett has been ruled out for the second time this season, for the rest of the season. This week, painfully, we discuss dealing with Ablett’s injury! ft. Faz

ROUND 17 #SCCPODCAST – Dealing With Ablett’s Injury
If you do not have Patrick Dangerfield or Scott Pendlebury, are they ‘must-haves’?
Dan Hannebery, Matt Priddis & David Mundy are all averaging around 115, and in the top 8 midfielders. Who is our best bet with six rounds to go?

For those coaches looking to use some of that Ablett money to upgrade elsewhere, who are the best value midfielders that leave us with cash in bank?
We look at Rory Sloane, Jordan Lewis, Joel Selwood, Scott Thompson, Tom Rockliff and Steele Sidebottom.
The question gets posed: is there any sense to trading Ablett to a DEF/MID or a MID/FWD DPP?
@supercoachcoach GAJ > Bartel (via Deledio switch to mids)? Creates new DPP link and frees up cash to upgrade bench (Steele > Bennell/Bont).

We take a look at Luke Hodge, Jimmy Bartel, Harley Bennell and Brett Deledio.
We also look at whether you should trade Ablett yet if you have only the ONE trade left!
After Ablett talk, Faz gives us a rookie rundown on Alex Browne, Hugh Goddard and Jayden Laverde.
Finally, we discuss Tom Mitchell who was relegated to the starting sub position against the Eagles.
