[Apologies for the delay in release - we had some audio problems which required extra editing! Unfortunately meant that we weren't able to include all the recorded content but there's still a lot already!]

We thought last week was bad but Rd 20 is a whole new beast with injuries, suspensions and a shortage of trades - the 'perfect storm' if you would. Catfish is joined by former champion Rob Bruns (@nearlythegoat) to preview the Round 20 games and highlight key points arising from teamlists, with a detailed consideration of numerous players and the match-ups. We also go again with this week's Swysh SuperCoach Star of the Round!

Strategy-wise, we consider how to handle "the business end" for both classic and head-to-head formats; some broader advice for those in contention for overall glory from how to use those last few trades, how 'POD' should you go, and other ways to navigate the last few weeks; and some seriously deep planning and mid-round trickery to get the edge on head-to-head opponents as you jostle for a finals spot and also during the finals itself.
