Round 2 is upon us which means we need to do our trades (or none if you’re that lucky). I’ll go into an analysis of my team trades below:
Brian Kelly (out) for Jayden Brailey (in)
Why: Kelly has a fractured hand and will miss 3 weeks which is the perfect opportunity to trade him and thanks to Brandon Smith and Ben Trbojevic, put in Jayden Brailey.
With 50 points in base and an array of attacking stats, Brailey looks to be the Koroisau of 2020! 350k HOK who becomes a keeper? Yes, please.
Jake Averillo (out) for Brian To’o (in)
Why: had heaps of cash leftover and whilst I could have easily spent that on Fergo or Mead, To’o was immense against the cowboys and versus the Dogs this Saturday!
He had 51 points in base and base attack which combined for an immense floor!
He’s a must-own at some stage so why not bite the bullet now! Averillo is a sell after watching the dogs play.
Flanagan is going to DEMAND the ball and he deserves it too, he will score a lot of the Dogs points this year.
Averillo had 1 run in 80 mins. He’s a sell and who better to get than To’o!
