I need to trade in a Centre, so that I can shift Niu into NPR as dual cover.
I have $566k to spend (oh how I'd like to just grab Tino and sure up my MID with $5k spend - must resist...)
So, hopefully this also helps anyone else deciding on drafting a Centre.Peachey $544k
(pretty much empties the bank with $22k left)
Should average ~45, so pretty much priced at his average, but unlikely to drop below $500k.
Has a great injury-free record.
I'll probably want him for R13 anyway.
Always a risk to cover in-game injuries in the backline.Bird $365k
(leaves $201k to play with another week)
Down on Tackles, TBs, with limited Attacking stats so far, while up on MTs.
He's actually getting the ball more than he did in 2019 where he averaged 43.
So should average 40ish? but will be more up & down
Terrible injury record, but so far so good.
Higher risk, but could gain money or become close enough to Keeper level.
Also plays R13 (assuming he's fit to play)C Graham $472k
One of last years gun-centres, now $108k cheaper.
Averaged 44 last year, but needs tries to get there
Souths don't have the easiest upcoming draw, and also look like they prefer going down Gagai's edge at the moment.
I'm not especially keen on Momirovski or Opacic.
My gut is leaning towards Bird, but my brain says the less exciting Peachey option makes more sense.
