    Charlie Curnow vs Rory Lobb. Any Carlton fans able to work out why he had such a huge uptick in scores?

    Michael Barlow Vs Mitch Wallis

    2 guys with brittle legs. If they were horses, they’d be shot. Barlow is back full training apparently, which is obviously a great thing. Should be thereabouts in the Top 6 fwds, and priced quite tasty. Mitch Wallis, who im a big fan of, has a lot of scope for improvement i think. Combined ave of 90 last 3yrs. Incl a 98 in 2015.

    I’m not convinced either, and doesn’t get the same RUC/FWD benefit that Nank had last year, which offset the risk because he could cover an injury via DPP. I’d say Nank was a success still, given his early form.

    Would you be happy with a forward that you paid 396k for if they averaged 88?

    I agree with JS, Nank worked cos of the R/F so good sides could've pushed him to F7/R3. Lobb needs to hit 95 to be a good pick. Could do it as Witts did. At this stage unlikely for me, but I'll jump on if Lobb has a Nank like preseason.

    I think at the start of the season I probably would be happy with 88 at a cost of $396k, especially if it meant I could play one less Fwd rookie on field. I find that the Fwd rookies can be quite unreliable, so replacing one with a player averaging 88 would probably be a win. Having said that, he would probably have to play at F5 for that to be most effective.

    Nank was definitely a good pick last year with his F/R eligibility, but Lobb could still be ok if he starts well. My concern is that he might only average between 70-80.

    Perhaps you could look at it this way. Here is the list of rucks that ave between 70-80 and played at least 5 games in 2017

    Darcy (first season), Sinclair, Longer, Berger, Stanley, Hickey, Griffin, Howard, Roughead and Campbell.

    So do you think Lobb, if playing no 1 ruck would be better that those names? If not you are probably right to think he is risk in the 70-80 range. If you think he can do a lot better than them then maybe he is worth a punt.

    For interest In 2016 the 70-80 list was

    Z Smith, Campbell, Nank, Lobb (75), Kruezer, Hampson, Stanley, Sandi (inj 5 games only), Roughead, Daw and Naismith.

    Lobb’s 75 in 2016 was while Tippett, Nank, and Naismth were all at some time in the ruck.
    There are no shortcuts to anywhere that is worth going to.

    Neither. Both are on the edge of their team's best 22, and both are injury prone. Wallis if you had to choose, due to his age.

    Disagree. Both will be walk up starters in their respective 22.

    As a carlton fan Its taking everything ive got to not drink the cool-aid on this one, but I think the price is just too high. Also worth noting he suffered from glandular fever in his first year so that may have something to do with it taking a while to get going last year.

    Bulldogs have great depth. Don't forget Wallis got dropped last year. If fit and firing, he's a lock in their side, but they have plenty of other inside mids if he's not playing well (Libba, Dahlhaus, Mclean, Bont, Macrae a bit and Lin Jong when he's fit again).

    As for Barlow, Gold Coast will be clean to blood youngsters, so he might not be a certainty, especially coming back from injury.

    Wallis due to his bye round and age. If Barlow has played 10 games averaging above 90 come his bye, you can get him before the 3 main bye rounds, saving you a premium donut.

    There are some interesting options in the $600k range. Please rank the following in your order of preference:

    Oliver $612.8k - does he continue to significantly improve, or drop back this year?
    Zorko $608.9k - I feel this is about his level, but with Rocky leaving is there room to improve?
    M.Crouch $608.3k - any further upside?
    Z.Merrett $600.6k - any further upside?

    All of these guy's played either 21 or 22 games last season
    If it wasn't for his damn R14 BYE, then Crouch would be my choice, marginally ahead of Merrett. However, we really can't afford any more R14 BYE players in our teams, so Merrett it is.

    I'll only be taking Birch if i must play a safer D5 and have money left over after all other things are considered.

    His scores were trending down by 2 every year for 3 years previous to his injury.
    So we have an older player who is injury prone and was trending towards 82, and 2013 was the last time he put 3-4 scores of 100+ together in a row,
    so little chance that he goes on a mini spree of say 3 100 type games and boost cash generation.
