With ‘bye-free’ R11 players now available to trade to, this week is all about upgrading!
With Adam Saad & Adam Oxley‘s performances this year, most have scheduled backline upgrades for this week. Plus, we look at the R11 rucks for anyone who has Tom Bellchambers, Patrick Ryder, Brodie Grundy or Shane Mumford.
First however, a quick league update:
SuperCoachCoach #1 – 1st (0)
SuperCoachCoach QQ – 2nd (0)
SuperCoachCoach 10 – 4th (-1)
SuperCoachCoach KK – 8th (+2)
SuperCoachCoach #2 – 9th (-3)
SuperCoachCoachVIC – 13th (-8)
SuperCoachCoach AA – 17th (+10)
SuperCoachCoach JJ – 19th (-5)
SuperCoachCoach #4 – 20th (+1)
SuperCoachCoach BB – 22nd (+4)
SuperCoachCoachFBD – 23rd (+9)
With SCers starting to really run through their trades, we kick-off this week’s show by answering a general question about trade numbers:
@supercoachcoach hey many trades left would be ideal ?

Adam Oxley and Adam Saad both have surpassed expectations this year. So much so that many in the community are asking: should we be keeping or trading?
For those still going ahead with upgrading their backline, we take look at the multitude of backline options that have just completed their bye. From Luke Hodge to Rory Laird, we analyse your best options:
@supercoachcoach Is Laird a viable option or just another super coach mirage?

The almost forgotten Brodie Smith is also discussed. FBDonkey is keen for a bargain but Marcus is skeptical, having seen such poor scores from Smith in his own team:
@supercoachcoach if u dont have adel smith is it worth bringing him in now for a lumumba or is that tooo sideways trade

Then a quick look at Rory Sloane, whose breakeven is still 117. Plus a comparison of the R11 rucks: Sam Jacobs, Ivan Maric, and Stefan Martin. Max Gawn has also been turning heads with his $330k price tag and ruck/forward DPP eligibility.
