Watching the Fantasy Pig Tom Rockliff go about his business at University of Tasmania Stadium on Saturday afternoon pleased The Traders.
That was until the last three minutes of the game.
â€˜Rockyâ€™ dislocated his shoulder after racking up an impressive 130 Fantasy points. While the results of his scans are yet to be known, it would be safe to assume he will miss this week and not out of the question that he misses the following week before the Lionsâ€™ bye. Sadly it looks like he needs to be traded.
The positive is that the most expensive and highest averaging player in the competition has an understudy or two.
Tom Mitchell scored 132 in Launceston to take his average to 126 as his pig-like tendencies have increased since joining the Hawks. Later that evening at the MCG, Zach Merrett gathered 33 disposals and 12 tackles for 150 points.
One of the â€˜pigletsâ€™ is the best option to trade the King Pig to, but if you already have the duo, there are plenty of suitable player to bring in to help improve your side as the bye rounds approach.
