IT ALL started on Thursday night when Rowan Marshall was a late out. Carnage followed when Matt Flynn didn't get back into the Giants' line-up, Paddy Dow, Deven Robertson and Jordan Clark were omitted while injuries to key players popped up in most games.
For the 11 per cent of teams still riding with Jordan De Goey, in most cases not by choice, they would have been buoyed by him starting in the midfield. Minutes later, he broke his nose and was subbed out of the game through concussion protocols. He will now miss in round six.

He's not alone on the sidelines for the Anzac Day game. Jeremy Howe (hamstring) and Jordan Ridley (concussion) have been ruled out.
It looks like there could be a lot of popular Fantasy players out for round six.
But crisis creates opportunity.
The rollout of the 53 new dual-position players (DPPs) this week should help with trading strategy. Midfielders gaining FWD status will allow them to be moved forward and with some crafty substitution, you should be able to almost trade any player for another, regardless of position (provided you can afford them!).
