VonCrow_smallHowdy Folks, welcome to our Round 12 Supercoach Scouting Report!

It was a funny ‘ol week was Round 11, with the likes of Travis Cloke and Dayne Zorko producing some very quality scores, something we haven’t seen from them as of late, as well as Taylor Walker putting up his best game post ACL surgery, with a terrific score of 146. We also had a barn burner at the MCG with Hawthorn narrowly managing to defeat Hawthorn, but with GWS getting the win in Supercoach (3 players with 100+ points for Hawthorn VS 6 for GWS).

Also, remember to look out for the red and green Supercoach scores, RED = bad, GREEN = good which may help you out when it comes to picking your captains for the week.

Round 11 is now in the bank however, so we must continue to look forward, now we’ll be moving to Round 12. But first, one final glimpse of what last week produced, with our Top 10 Scorers in Supercoach for Round 11.

1. Tom Rockliff – 182 Supercoach Points (10 points)
2. Travis Cloke – 164 Supercoach Points (9 points)
3. Marc Murphy – 156 Supercoach Points (8 points)
4. Ben Howlett – 150 Supercoach Points (7 points)
5. Taylor Walker – 146 Supercoach Points (6 points)
6. Nick Malceski – 144 Supercoach Points (5 points)
7. Callan Ward – 142 Supercoach Points (4 points)
8. Devon Smith – 139 Supercoach Points (3 points)
9. Craig Bird – 137 Supercoach Points (2 points)
10. Rory Sloane – 136 Supercoach Points (1 point)

And that will bring our overall rankings too…

1. Gary Ablett – 51 Points (7 appearances)
2. Tom Liberatore – 25 Points (4 appearances)
3. Marc Murphy (3 appearances) / Joel Selwood (4 appearances) – 22 Points
4. Travis Boak / Leigh Montagna – 21 Points (3 appearances each)
5. Scott Pendlebury – 20 Points (3 appearances)
6. Tom Rockliff (3 appearances) / Steve Johnson (4 appearances) – 19 Points

8. Josh P Kennedy (3 appearances) / Jobe Watson (2 appearances) – 17 Points
9. Shane Mumford – 15 Points (2 appearances)

Marc Murphy from Carlton has now slid into equal 3rd with another terrific effort on the weekend. Also entering the Top 10 again is Tom Rockliff who put out an incredible score of 182 points! Not making the list for the 2nd week in a row was Gary Ablett, but he still put up a score of 130, which was a Top 15 score for the week, as well as another absent member of the Top 10 list in recent months, Adam Treloar with a Top 20 score for the week.

@ Etihad Stadium Averages: 95.39 Supercoach Points, High Score of 151

Captain Pick(s):

It’s hard to ignore Marc Muprhy’s recent form, and his decent averages against Geelong. Joel Selwood has been quiet as of late, but the week you write him off is likely the week he’ll come back and put up a big Supercoach score that’ll bite you in the bum. Both will be options this week, along with Steven Johnson (Jock has banished the Stevie J name) being a choice as well, albeit an unpredictable one.

@ Aurora Stadium Averages: 140.67 Supercoach Points, High Score of 173

Captain Pick(s):

Matthew Priddis is like a bloody stealth bomber in Supercoach. It seems every year he flies under the radar, quietly going about his business, while not many people notice, or have him in their teams (only owned in 1.89% of teams), and then BAM, you take a look and see the damage he’s done, sitting on a nice average of 108 for the year, with scores of 120, 144 and a 132 next to his name over his last 3 games. He’s got a ripping average at Aurora, and I’m not all that enamoured with Hawthorn in Supercoach at the moment, so he’s my pick here.

@ Adelaide Oval Averages: N/A

Captain Pick(s):

The new Adelaide Oval seems to agree very well with Travis Boak, with a fantastic average of 120 at the ground for the year, so take him here if you have him. We could also see a nice game from the likes of Steven or Montagna for the Sainters too. Riewoldt has been very quiet since Round 5 and I’m not sure if this’ll be the week he takes off again.

@ Etihad Stadium Averages: N/A

Captain Pick(s):

Rocky also had a score of 147 in the Lions/Bullies Rd 13 game in 2012, so 3 out of 4 scores above 120 is a very solid effort, along with his massive score last week means I think there will be a ton of people who look to him this week. Don’t forgot Tom Liberatore either, he’s a fantastic choice here as well.

Captain Pick(s):

An absolute of a stinker of a game last time these two player (in Supercoach terms at least), with barely 6 players scoring 100+. Watson has been on his bike since Round 8, with a 3 round average of 134.33, hard to ignore form like that, so I’d take him here.

Captain Pick(s):

Hard to keep Ablett down, Sam Kerridge did everything in his power to stop him last week and could only “restrict” him to 130 Supercoach points. He’s our set and forget Captain for a reason, but if you don’t have him in your side, then JPK or Jarrad McVeigh are valid picks here too. If you’re feeling really frisky, then you could take a punt on Lance Franklin, who has looked much better now that the Swans are fully healthy with Goodes, Tippett and Reid back in the squad.

@ Patersons Stadium Averages: 103.83 Supercoach Points, High Score of 178

Captain Pick(s):

I’m sure people will be seeing the Crowley job Ryan Griffen got last week and will be fearing for Dangerfield here. Danger had him in their Round 10 matchup, where he kept him down to 21 touches, but couldn’t stop him from kicking 3 goals, which lead to the 125 score. Danger missed in Round 18, but Crowley went to Richie Douglas in that game, which may be a good sign for those who own Rory Sloane! Anyway, depending on how Sam Jacobs pulls up, I may take a chance on Aaron Sandilands here, if Sauce misses, he’ll either be going against Angus Graham (that scream you just heard was from tens of thousands of Richmond fans as they remember the years when he was their #1 ruck) or Shaun McKernan (who has been terrible in the Reserves this year) or if the Crows go with the single ruckman, Josh Jenkins (who isn’t a good ruckman at all), with Andy Otten as the backup (and a 20cm height difference).

Captain Pick(s):

Much like Hawthorn, I haven’t been all that please with Richmond’s Supercoach output over the past few weeks., so I wouldn’t be near them this week. Petrie has been garbage this year in Supercoach, but he’s got a very impressive history against Richmond. You might even use this as his “make or break” game for the year, he’s put up big tallies against the Tiges before, if he can’t do it this year, he may just be a lost cause for 2014. Nicky Dal is a very solid VC pick most weeks, and I think he’ll be fine again here as well.

Captain Pick(s):

Could be a coin flip between Swan and Pendlebury based on previous form against Melbourne (provided Swan is fully fit) in this one. Still, the difference between the 2012-13 Melbourne and the 2014 Melbourne is night and day really, so what Swan and Pendles have scored against Melbourne in the past could be completely irrelevant when faced with Paul Roo’s Demons. Anyway, for those who are feeling slightly skittish with Ablett, this could be a nicely scheduled game as it’ll allow you to take a sneak peak at Ablett’s score, before deciding to lock it in or not, while still having the luxury of a consistent Scott Pendlebury still to come.

BARRON VON CROW’S CAPTAIN SELECTION(S):

I’m feeling pretty gung-ho about Tom Rockliff this week, so I’m locking him down as my VC, with Ablett as my Captain. I am also very tempted by the above suggestion of taking Ablett with the VC and going with Pendlebury as my Captain.

Which VC/C combo are you guys thinking about this week? Let us know in the comments below, or hit us up on the Twiter @BarronVonCrow

    is there anything i can do with my team? 14 trades left 11k in the bank.
    def: simpson, bartel, mcveigh, hibberd, enright, hurn. (georgio, clurey)
    mid: ablett, pendles, beams, selwood, libba, sloane, tyson, k mitchell (crouch, acres)
    ruck: sandi, mcevo (derickx, thurlow)
    fwd: zorko, roughy, dangerfield, gray, fasolo, higgins (shenton, lloyd)
    thoughts?

    • Derek says:

      I would look at either upgrading Derrickx to Nic Nat and use the Ruck loophole, or downgrading Derrickx to get the cash and upgrade tyson to a premium

  2. Captain joc says:

    Great write up Barron

    Some of your breakevens are wrong

  3. Cyril says:

    What are your thoughts on mcevoy and enright Henry. I’ve got them both two and I’m feeling the burn

  4. BCHawks says:

    V Libba C Ablett also thought about putting the V on Ablett and the C on Dependlebury

  5. crabb says:

    Hawthorn narrowly beating Hawthorn was quite astonishing ;P

  6. Kev says:

    I like the Sandi option if Sauce doesn't pull up this week. Otherwise it will be Rocky/Libba VC into Gaz. I really rate Cross as a tagged and he could go to Pendles

    • The Garbo says:

      Cross gets sent to tag lesser mids that are easier to nullify but still rack up a lot of the ball like MaCrae and Polec. Doubt he'll go to pendles

  7. Brandon2416 says:

    Hi community,
    Going for the league win and am in 1st place by a win.
    My team is :
    Def: Swallow,Simpson,Bartel,Burgoyne,Enright, Mcveigh (Gardiner, Vandeleur)
    Mid: Ablett, Pendles, Beams, Selwood, Watson, Dal Santo, Murphy, Taylor ( Hartung, Roberston)
    Ruck: Sandi, Jacobs (Derickx, Currie)
    Fwd: Dangerfield, Parker, Martin,Zorko,Dahlhaus,Shenton (Ambrose, Llyod)
    12 trades and 354k in the bank.

    OPTION 1: Roberston OUT(via mcveigh DPP) Hibberd IN. Would leave me with 92k in the bank and only 1 fwd premo to have a full premo team.

    OPTION 2 : Enright OUT Hibberd IN
    If you have any other trade options please comment
    Thanks

    • Captain joc says:

      Hey mate you could upgrade Taylor

      Otherwise have a look at who you are playing this week if you think you can beat them then I’d say just hold your trades unless you upgrade Taylor to a fwd or mid premo via shenton

    • The Garbo says:

      ripper team

    • The Filth says:

      Upgrade Taylor.
      Your back line is complete. Points wise you are better off with a midfield premium instead of having McVeigh taking up a valuable midfield slot. If you really want Hibberd consider upgrading Enright once your team has reached full premium status.

    • scano says:

      Option 1! You could even downgrade Robertson or Taylor to Obrien although cash is not a problem!

  8. Tommy says:

    Best premium defender to get in? Already have Simpson, Bartel, Swallow and Mcveigh

  9. Jordan says:

    What is everyone’s thoughts on Langdon?

    Is it time to upgrade him?

    • scano says:

      High BE so probably time to go
      Although nick spud maxwell is out so that could help him score big

    • The Garbo says:

      can only see him getting another 80 this round. but with a BE of 109. So I would not hold him past this week

  10. Tim says:

    Thoughts of Tex Walker? Is he worth a trade in if you’ve got a full premo fwd line

  11. scano says:

    Is a back line consisting of McVeigh Bartel Johnson Walker Hurn Jaensch any good or does it need obe more SILKY defender?

  12. Davo says:

    Does keeping Higgins make any sense?

    • Josh says:

      If you said that at the start of the year I'd think your crazy but now I am considering the same.

      • julz says:

        Yes same here, glad to see I'm not the only one thinking along these lines.
        I keep waiting for Higgins to BURN me but he has been very useful, made lots of $$$ and is performing well. With forwards all over the shop this year think I will keep him for time being and will upgrade him towards end of year if needed and trades permitting

  13. throttlefinger says:

    Excellent as always, BVC! Sure this is the SC fiber I need to shit out a decent score.

    Leaning Selwood VC and Pendles C. But may go Jobe VC and McV C just to give myself an extra tickle this round.

    • Captain joc says:

      I’m tempted to go libba into Ablett or jobe into Ablett or Ablett into the one of the pies boys

      • throttlefinger says:

        Went Pendles/Jobe last week so maybe reverse dat shit this week.

        • Captain joc says:

          I’m really thinking libba against the lions think he might go bananas!!! Might be time to try something different then the usual pendles into gaz (it’s getting boring ) in supercoach terms I was kinda hoping for gazza to get rubbed out the other week as it would have made everything more interesting

  14. The Filth says:

    Midfield upgrade – Rockliff or Kennedy?

    • Nathan says:

      Both are top 8 SC mids IMO, so just go with your gut – u can’t really go wrong

    • throttlefinger says:

      For sure toss up. Plus fro JPK is that he's on a winning side so chances he goes sub 90 is low. Rockliff is on a struggling team yet that hasn't stopped him. Only Rocky has stopped Rocky (well, that and a flu bug).

  15. MightyDonsFC says:

    Can't decide between Libba and Rocky, any suggestions?

  16. Eagler says:

    Very happy to be able to whack the VC on Ablett for the first time this year.

  17. Dutch Life says:

    Joel Selwood or Steve Johnson in to Gaz.?
    Or
    Gaz into Pendulbery.?

  18. northerner says:

    Thoughts on a trade down option in defence? I either take cheapest and then open up rookie loophole or thinking Clay Cameron at $168k may be a cheap spend on the bench who has reasonable job security as backup for DEF injuries. Litherland is the other option and will appreciate, but I don't rate his longer term job security. Likewise question how long Bews will stay in 22. At this stage of season prefer security over cash generation to save trades.

    Anyone with ideas as to a cheap bench rookie with prospects of playing in the near future? Other thoughts?

    It's Polec out this week, moving Bartel to MID to open up defence swing. I am full premo except for 1 rookie in FWDs with 10 trades after this week.

  19. Donavan says:

    Community, after your valued opinons.

    Def – Bartel, Swallow, Enright, Firrito, Schoenmakers, Kolodjashnij, Langford, Tippett
    Mid – Ablett, Pendlebury, Beams, Priddis, Goddard, Cotchin, Langdon, Shenton, Hartung, Acres
    Ruck – Sandiands, Naitanui, Derickx, Lobb
    Fwd – Martin, Dahlhaus, Franklin, Roughead, Dangerfield, L.Taylor, S.Lloyd, Ambrose

    13 Trades – Bank = $539.6k

    Thinking this week (Rd 12)-
    Kolodjashnij to Malceski
    L.Taylor to R.Gray
    Leaving 11 trades & $153.1k

    Round 13
    Firrito to either M.Johnson or Hibberd
    Langdon to Zorko
    Leaving 9 trades & approx $10k

    Then wait for-
    Def – S.Mitchell (3-4 weeks after return)
    Mid – S.Johnson (Rd 14-15)
    Value to increase on – Lloyd, Ambrose, Shenton, Hartung, Acres, Tippet

    With some fence painting to get the final 2 premium positions filled.

    Appreciate thoughts on this strategy, and players involved, perhaps alternate sequencing of trades.

    Thanks.

    • Captain joc says:

      Why not get rid of Langford instead of kk kk has better JS so would be a good D7

      • Derek says:

        Langford was omitted last week, got a late call

        • Captain joc says:

          I know thTs why I said trade Langford instead of kk

        • Donavan says:

          Thanks guys, was thinking KK to trade first, because his value will drop, whereas Langford will accumulate value for 2 more weeks (if he plays).

          Langford has also played 9 out of the 10 games. I sense that the Hawks may have been resting him against the GWS as they felt they didn't need to tag any GWS players. Although perhaps it is as simple as Sewell is getting his job back (and this leaves Langford as a back-up).

          Appreciate some more opinion. Is Langford now in the Hawks best 22?

          • Captain joc says:

            I’m not sure they had a new coach at the panel last week and I’m guessing that’s why he dropped him as Langford came in for Lewis which they must have rested I just think kk is better to have at d7 then langford

  20. Azmataz says:

    Cheers Baron, good write up. I am thinking of going Rocky into Gaz at this stage, and using Lloyd (providing he isn't named) as the loop hole if Rocky goes nuts.

  21. WombatsFC says:

    Whats the story on Litherland? JS, role competitors,etc.
    input from Hawks fans greatly appreciated

    • Donavan says:

      Wombat,

      Poor JS for Litherland, the Hawks have about 7-8 players missing from their best 22 at this time. Litherland is still developing, but wouldnt be in the best 25 at this time. The Hawks will reconfigure their line-up to include their best players, they have that degree of versatily.

      I see Litherland playing 2-3 more games, as the Hawks have many top players coming back in the next 3-4 weeks – McEvoy, Lewis, Gibson, Lake, Stratton, Rioli & Mitchell (maybe 5-6 weeks).

      • Garglesnarf FC says:

        Litherland is a mobile, tall key defender, who did a fantastic job on Jeremy Cameron last week. He competes with Gibson (torn pec out until rnd 20 at least) Schoey, Spangher and Lake rather than Mitchell and Rioli. At 21 he was drafted in 2010 so he is a little older than your average rookie, and has been a long time breaking into the team.

        As a key defender I think he is more likely to score around 40-60 rather than 100+, however given the age of Hawthorns list they would be keen to get some games into such a promising player. While his position will come under threat when Lake returns, I can still see him playing as the third tall defender behind Lake & Schoey for much of the season when selectors feel that the match up works.

        If I had more than 9 trades left I would swap him in for Tippett, but instead I will hold fire and wait for McDonald and Langford to finish fattening, before moving to a full premium defence.

    • Derek says:

      Until last week, even Spranger was ahead of him. Spranger is also injured. He played well enough to get another game if Stratton out this week, if Stratton back he won’t.

  22. Wattsieesq says:

    Great stuff BVC. Still deciding whether to use the vc on Jellwood and C on Gaz or go Gaz into Pendles. Your article has given me something to mull over. Cheers

    • throttlefinger says:

      Hey Wattise, my man! Definitely Gaz/Pendles is the safer call. Yet that = most will do the same. Jelwood could produce some magic. Right now going back and forth with him or Jobe for VC.

      • Wattsieesq says:

        Hey TF, how are ya buddy? I've gone Gaz/Pendles for most of the year and they are my two highest scoring players. I worry about Jellwood being tagged by Curnow so I probably will go with Pendles. I was going to bring in Jobe when he bottomed out at $513k but decided I had other areas to attend to. I wish I had brought him in as his last month has been immense.

        • throttlefinger says:

          Very true about Jelwood. Plus he's not packing as strong of an SC punch than as he was beginning of year. Jobe/Pendles it is for TF.

          Gaz/Pendles is pretty unbeatable. Definitely should've built team around both. Ahhhh, lessons we learn as a growing SC player…

  23. Steve says:

    How do you feel about Hanley?

    • throttlefinger says:

      Hmmm. I feel he's not earned the label "premium". Think we're all in love with the potential of Hanley yet his numbers have not been repaying in kind.

      That said, his form may be turning. "May" the key word. If he can put together a couple 90+ rounds, he may be worth slotting in.

      Until then, he's name comes with a huge sign that reads "BUYER BEWARE".

    • Bruce says:

      Brisbane have a good draw for a few rounds. Hanley in the centre could put out some solid scores, and the def/mid swing works also.

    • Derek says:

      In Round 2 he scored 138 against Cats, and Round 3 he scored 119 against Suns. At that stage he was $525k and in my team. Was injured in round 4 and scored 35 and was supposed to be out for 5-6 weeks (traded him to Birchell). He only missed 1 week! Has taken him a few weeks to get back to best and his 98 against carlton last week was more like his usual output. His 35 in round 4 has moved through his average so his price will rise again, but at only $425k he is a classic "fallen premium". he is back in my team.

  24. Bruce says:

    Thought about M Thomas to Pendles (1trade) but will go to McV. Then next week Tyson and McDonough to Ablett and Spina for loophole plus another swing. Will leave full premo with 9 trades. Thoughts?

    • Donavan says:

      Sounds like your sorted. Adding Pendles and Ablett is risk free. and a full premo team at round 13 with 9 trades left is a good place to be.

      Well done.

    • Jottie says:

      Yeh mate do it if you can!

  25. Donavan says:

    Is Langford in Hawthorns best 22?

    Was he going to be rested last week. because they weren't going to tag any GWS players, or is it as simple as Sewell taking his job back?

    • Derek says:

      If they had a full list to choose from I don't think so. He was omitted last week but got a game when Lewis was a late withdrawal. I would think that Hallahan is more likely to play than Langford.

      Hawks have Mitchell, Rioli, Stratten, Lake, Gibson, McElroy, Whitecross (Lewis missed just the one week) to come back into the best 22.

    • MaxiMayhem says:

      looking at the return times of the hawks players, I reckon Langers has a little more time… add to this the intensity he's shown and he will secure a role each week i think… later in the season this may be as a sub though.

    • The Garbo says:

      I Always assumed he was just minding sewells spot

  26. MaxiMayhem says:

    thoughts on Cotchin vs Tyson & Hanley vs Langdon

    Who would you keep?

  27. steve says:

    my final strategy…decisions decisions – over 2 weeks i can and want to bring in Simpson, Parker, Kennedy, and Zorko back…but which two first all other spots filled…?? cant do the dream parker / kennedy this week has to be split… i am leaning to parker / simpson then kennedy / franklyn or zorko. thoughts? out will go wines / langdon , cunnigham and then finally tex…?

  28. Billy says:

    Hi Community, just after some thoughts on my team and next moves..
    9 trades, $378,500

    Def: Swallow, Bartel, McVeigh, Burguoyne, Hurn, McDOnald (Georgiou, Tippett)
    Mid: Ablett, Beams, JSelwood, Dal Santo, Wines, Polec, Vince, Shenton (Hallahan, Acres)
    Ruck: Sandilands, Jacobs (Derickx, Currie)
    Fwd: Dangerfield, Martin, Breust, Zorko, Wingard, Taylor (Ambrose, Cameron)

    Was thinking this week Taylor > Tex or Acres > Tex via Taylor
    then next week Polec or Hallahan > Stevie J

    also thinking i need to get rid of one of Georgiou and Tippett at some stage

    Thoughts much appreciated!

  29. Gab says:

    who do i start on the field, L. Taylor or Ambrose?
    they both play on saturday night so cant loop hole them

    • Jottie says:

      Flip a coin mate both on par, Essendon are playing G.W.S tho so maybe Ambrose

      • Jottie says:

        sorry mate that was for above question, looks like Dixon may be a POD, had a good couple of games, is he filling in the ruck with Nicholls out? are you looking at a ruckman or a forward? if you are looking for a ruckman Goldstein, Nic Nat are around the mark if a forward Buddy, Bird and Tex are also around the mark. remember that .Dixon is a KPP normally so his scores can fluctuate greatly, is injury prone but may have gotten that out of the way if he has shouldered the ruck he may well average 90 from here on out.

  30. Frankie says:

    Thoughts on trading in Tex Walker or Franklin?

  31. Peter says:

    Thought on Charlie Dixon?

  32. scano says:

    G'DAY COMMUNITY! need some help !

    Should I go
    Langford to bews
    Wright to Zorko

    OR

    collarjazzknee (thumper) to Hurn/Mackie
    Wright to Zorko

  33. TigerTuff says:

    Would it be worth it going Higgins/Wingard to LeCras?
    Trades are not a problem

    • scano says:

      Id hold wingard and if i was going to trade higgins it would be for a premium

      • TigerTuff says:

        I honestly see LeCras as an undercover premium this year, he would have an average of 119 take out his affected score of 20 which is why he is so cheap at the moment.
        Am still looking to get Parker but in the coming weeks.
        Just think this is the time to jump on LeCras ar a F5/6

    • The Garbo says:

      keep higgins. Wingard – seems to be a lot of excitement surrounding him as a F6. Though I dont like him.
      BUT I wouldnt be looking to trade him until all other spots have been fielded either

    • GarglesnarfFC says:

      No. Parker yes

  34. TigerTuff says:

    I honestly see LeCras as an undercover premium this year, he would have an average of 119 take out his affected score of 20 which is why he is so cheap at the moment.
    Am still looking to get Parker but in the coming weeks.
    Just think this is the time to jump on LeCras ar a F5/6

    • The Garbo says:

      Made the move a few days ago. Risky with his glass body though

    • GarglesnarfFC says:

      He may well be, but he's not a risk I'm willing to take. Poor team, injury prone płayerj. Tex is a better option just from a Way cheaper price perspective.

  35. Mozz says:

    Have to field two of Taylor, Ambrose and Shenton. Which two do people think will score the highest?
    thanks

  36. Wattsieesq says:

    Cyril named. Delicious.

  37. Wattsieesq says:

    Langford out. Time to upgrade to a premo.

  38. The Filth says:

    A: Langford to M Johnson
    or
    B: Langford to Hanley and save $71k?

    • The Garbo says:

      Both good picks but I like Hanley

    • scano says:

      Johnson is very consistent but doesnt have a high ceiling. If hanley gets back to his best it could really pay off

      depends if you want to take a gamble or play it safe ;)

    • GarglesnarfFC says:

      Phuk. I already have Hanley, so I suppose I would pick him first. I am tossing up wether to do Langford > Docherty and upgrade Polec to Barlow, or just do Langford to Johnson.

      Phuk

    • Danners16 says:

      A, P.Hanley too much of a risk

    • RooBoy says:

      Have been considering Hanley myself.
      Would it be significant that he has been named on ball this week instead of half back?
      More on ball time = higher scores.

      One thing turning me off is Brisbane's tough opponents during SC finals.

  39. Jimbo Jones says:

    Hey legends. Which defender would be an ideal inclusion this week? Bartel? Simpson? Hurn? Hanley?
    I already have McVeigh, Swallow, Burgoyne, Birchall. I think I'll be trading Langdon out.

    • The Garbo says:

      Hanley would be my pick purely because of value. Bartel and simpson is a bit too pricey for my liking.

  40. The Garbo says:

    Stefan Martin named as ruck.
    bit pricey (nearly 250k). Good JS for awhile. Had a pretty decent year in 2011 with Melbourne when he played his last full season. Avg 86 sc.
    Definitely on my watch list over the next couple games.

  41. Danners16 says:

    Hi guys, thoughts on which midfielder I should get? Or is it too early yer
    At the moment it looks like
    G.Ablett, D.Beams, J.Selwood, M.Murphy, R.Griffen, N.Jones, L.Shuey, T.Langdon (B.Hartung, B.Acres)
    I planning to upgrade Langdon since he has a breakeven over 100
    Also thoughts on S.Docherty?
    I can get anyone
    Thanks

    • scano says:

      If you can get anyone trade langdon to JPK, Pendlebury, Libba or someone a bit cheaper and get Goddard/Barlow for shuey

    • Nathan says:

      But if you trade Langdon for a Mid you'll lose you MID/DEF swing… a gold option for later in the year when injuries/list management issues arise. So u should consider moving a McVeigh/Bartel type from DEF to your MID and then upgrade Langdon to a premo defender.

  42. Tom says:

    Polec to selwood or priddis as a pod?

  43. scano says:

    Should I go
    Langford to bews
    Wright to Zorko

    OR

    collarjazzknee (thumper) to Hurn/Mackie
    Wright to Zorko

    cheers

  44. john snow says:

    Hi all, this weeks trades so far are

    Polect OUT, swap Bartel into mids and trade in Malceski

    Langford OUT, Birchal IN. Was going to go Jaensch but hes named on extended bench now. Hanley is another option

    thoughts?

  45. Brad says:

    Who is the best defender for me?
    I have swallow mcveigh Burgoyne jaensch Langdon and looking to get rid of Langford, cannot afford to get Simpson or Bartel this week so anyone else?

  46. Lisa says:

    Hi guys,

    Is anyone with mcevoy going to natanui this week?

    I’ve had sandilands, mcevoy and macintosh all year and I want to keep 3 reliable rucks.

    Is it worth going mcevoy to nick nat?

    Archie smith is my 4th ruck so I’m hoping Brisbane will give him a shot in the coming weeks with all their ruck injuries.

    Would love everyone’s advise :)

    • wat says:

      Naitnui looked like he was back to form last week pulling out a ton so it could be a very good move

      I'm pretty sure Brisbane have gone with Stef Martin instead of Archie Smith

    • GarglesnarfFC says:

      Save money and go Martin from Brisbane. $260k and he gets the No 1 ruck gig for the rest of the year, cheap r3 if you want a regular scorer and 120k less than NN.

    • Nathan says:

      How many trades do you have left? Do you have other holes to fill? I would always sure up all other lines before the rucks. But if you are in that enviable position of being full premo, then NicNat is the clear standout at his price. Then you could actually hope Archie Smith does NOT play so you can use the loophole each(/most) week

      • Lisa says:

        Hey guys,
        Thanks heaps for the feedback!
        Yeah Nathan, I went with archie smith at the start season for that reason but I hope he gets a game now!
        backs: Swallow, Simpson, Bartel, McVeigh, Enright, Langdon emg: langford and gardnier
        mids: Gaz, Pendles, JPK, Beams, Selwood, Dangerfield, Boak, Cotchin emg: taylor and hallahan
        rucks: sandilands, mcintosh emg:mcevoy and smith
        fwds: parker, martin, zorko, higgins, shenton, ambrose emg: lennon and lloyd

        I've got my eyes on Nat Fyfe in 2 weeks time to take my last midfield spot and move danger back to my fwd line. 13 trades left. Im thinking I will hold. Mcevoy isn't going to bleed anymore cash this weekend, see how martin goes in the ruck and save myself $120k next week hopefully!
        Thanks everyone :)

  47. Cam says:

    Struggling on my VC pick this week. Probably end up slapping the c on gaz so Pendlebury and Beams are out of contention which leaves me with Murphy, Selwood, JPK, Libba and Rockliff. Libba and rocky are the two I’m liking and both are playing at the same time. Libba has a projected score of 158 which is appealing but will rocky just monster the doggies midfield and produce another ridiculous number? Surely jelwood is due for a big one too… Tough decision…

    • Captain joc says:

      I’m going libba into gaz

    • Nathan says:

      Im going Rocky into GAJ. But Libba or Rocky are the two standout VC options this week IMO, so either are a great option

    • Mozz says:

      I'm in the same position as you (we have the exact same midfield lol). I'm thinking of going Rockliff as my VC. Libba is a consistent 110-120ish player, but I think rockliff will outscore him this week.

      • Captain joc says:

        I would only bring in bartel if you are looking to get rid of suckling in the next couple of weeks I reckon they will both go 130+ this week

  48. Buddy says:

    14 Trades Left – Team Stands as below with 100k in bank

    Swallow, Simpson, Bartel, McVeigh, Hibberb, Kolodashnji,
    Bews, Aylett,
    Ablett, Pendle, Beams, Selwood, Murphy, Mundy, Cotchin, Ellis,
    Hartung, Acres
    Sandilands, McIntosh,
    Currie, Thurlow
    Dangerfield, Martin, Riewoldt, HIggins, Roughead, Lloyd,
    Impey, Cameron

    Playing for league win not total score..

    this week i was thinking ellis > O'brian then Lloyd to Buddy or Walker

    .. Kolodjashnij i will hold on to until sam mitchell comes back with price drop..

    Can anyone recommend what i should be doing at this stage.. should i do the upgrade as ive mentioned above.. buddy or walker?
    anything else i should do instead..? Mcintosh > Mumford after price drop

    to trade or to wait..

    help help help.. thanks!

  49. Billy says:

    DEF: Swallow, Bartel, McVeigh,
    Johnson,Langdon, McDonald
    Bench: Georgiou, Bews

    MID: Ablett, Pendlbury, Kennedy, Beams,
    Selwood, Libba, Priddis, Goddard
    Bench: Hallahan, Acres

    RUCK: Sandilands, Nic Nat
    Bench: Derickx, Thurlow

    FWD: Danger, Zorko, Pavlich,
    Higgins, Franklin, Fasolo,
    Bench: Lloyd, Cameron

    I only have 10 trades left and I am contemplating cashing in Hallahan and Lloyd for Zac O'Brien and someone else. I already have 75k in the bank. Any suggestions? should i just make no trades this week?

  50. Nathan says:

    HOLD! O'Brien is still a week away from being on the bubble, dont make a rookie error and potentially blow a trade this week only to have something untoward happen! 10 trades is not a lot at this stage of the season, so treat each one like gold from here on in.

  51. Max Payne says:

    You guys have a nice page guard. :)

  52. Max Payne says:

    i wanna have sex

  53. Michael says:

    Contemplating the following trades (have only 8 trades left & $160K in bank – looking for best result overall but am I mad?):

    Sam Lloyd out, Luke Parker in
    Mitch Hallahan out, Zac O'Brien in

    Leaves me with $52K in bank, 6 trades and the following team:

    DEF: Swallow, Simpson, Bartel, McVeigh, Hibberd, Enright (Schoenmakers, Bews)
    MID: GAJ, Pendles, JPK, Beams, Jelwood, Murph, Fyfe, O'Brien (Shenton, Acres)
    RUC: Sandy, Sauce (Derickx, King)
    FWD: Danger, Parker, Dusty, Zorko, Pav, Ambrose (Taylor, Cameron)

    Thoughts? I know it's a risk getting O'Brien in based on 1 game but needed the cash to get Parker.
    1 mid & 1 fwd premo to go!

    • Nathan says:

      Unfortunately, with 8 trades left u really should be at full premo and holding those last 8. I know the temptation is to keep trading until u r at full premo but 8 trades is the minimum I believe you need at the moment. I would encourage u to hold this week and wait until o’brien is on the bubble to ensure he actually avoids injury/suspension/dropped

      • Kev says:

        Agree with Nathan here, mate. Say you go through with your trade plans this week, you've still got O'Brien and Ambrose to upgrade, so that's four trades (2 down, 2 up) leaving 2 trades to cover injuries/suspensions/rest/form drops. Not nearly enough if you're chasing overall

  54. Lewis says:

    I have 11 trades left and am trading out polec and either hampson (360k) or Derickx (293k). Who should i get in out of pendles, goddard, ward and priddis? And who should i get in out of Nic Nat or Martin from Brisbane? Have 330k in the bank.

    • Nathan says:

      If u can afford pendles, get him! Don’t go Martin. He is not SC relevant IMO. Nic Nat is your man

      • Kev says:

        Hampson is cooked. Big Ivan will get more match fitness over the coming weeks. Hampson is not a true fwd target imo

  55. Troy says:

    Got a difficult decision, help would be grateful…

    Langdon into Bartel this week

    Or wait for price drop of Fyfe next week.

    • Mozz says:

      Langdon going pretty well tbh averaging 85+ each week, don't think he is due to be upgraded just yet.
      Fyfe could be rested come the end of the season, there are better options for you to go with, What does your midfield look like?

      • Troy says:

        Def: McVeigh, Swallow, Burgoyne, Suckling, Walker, Hurn (Bews, Georgiou)

        Mids: Ablett, Pendles, Beams, Selwood, Goddard, Murphy, Langdon, Shenton. (Hallahan, Taylor)

        Ruck: Sandi, Mummy

        Fwds: Danger, Martin, Higgins, Zorko, Buddy, Fasolo (Lennon, Impey)

        200k in the bank.

  56. Gary rohan the spud says:

    wtf is happening at sydney, tom mitchell has a record breaking 64 disposals and 4 goals and isnt even on their fu%king extended bench. are they the most retarded Fu5cks in the AFL. i mean bloody heall Gary rohan is on the extended bench but tom mitchell isnt last year he was an absolute shining light for em. jake loyd, lewis jetta, and harry cunningham all are named wtf

    • Jottie says:

      I think it has something to do with his attitude, the bloods culture is strong and if you don't become a part of it it doesn't matter how many disposals you get. 64 disposals seems pretty selfish doesn't it ?

  57. Steve says:

    Anybody class libba as a premo , better than swan as a keeper…. Ahead of Kennedy or both?

  58. Padio says:

    $23,400 in the bank with 15 trades left
    Backline is: Bartel, Swallow, McVeigh, Hibberd, Burgoyne, Langdon (Cutler, Clurey)

    I can either save a trade and do a straight swap trading out Langdon for Jaencsh/Hanley

    Or I can use 2 trades by trading out Lloyd for O'Brien (moving Shenton forward via DPP) and trading Langdon for Malceski.
    Though hopefully Tyson will get upgraded for my last position next week and saving the Lloyd to O'Brien trade may make it a lot easier for me to turn Tyson into Fyfe/JPK and it would also give me one more week to have a look at O'Brien and one more week to see if Lloyd can get a game next week.
