VonCrow_small“Unless your name is Nathan Fyfe or Joel Selwood, you can get stuffed!”

I’m sure that’s what a lot of Supercoachers would be saying to themselves this week after some of the performances produced in Round 19! Howdy folks, its Barron Von Crow here and we’re here we are once again with our Supercoach Scouting Report. It’s Round 20, which means we’ve hit League Finals, and our premo players are certainly making it difficult for us post Ablett, with another week of sub-par scores, with Pendlebury (108), Rockliff (113, although that was to be expected when playing Melbourne), JPK (100), Liberatore (113) and Stevie J (61 and almost suspended! Back to being called Steven Johnson for you) all letting our Supercoach sides down. But it wasn’t all doom and gloom with Nathan Fyfe and Joel Sewlood picking up the slack and if you picked them as your Captain last week then I’m sure you’ll be pleased as punch with the scores they produced, so they can avoid the timeout corner this week.

Anyway, as we said earlier it’s Round 20, so I’m sure there’s more than a few of you who will be playing for league wins (and league bragging rights!) and will be looking to nail your Captain down, especially if you’re in an elimination final. We’ll do our best to help that happen, so let’s get cracking and take a look at what Round 20 has in store for us!

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

First up, our Top 10 scorers from Round 19

Image 1

Nathan Fyfe was absolutely terrific in Freos win against the Blues, producing a season high 171 Supercoach Points. Lenny Hayes showed that class doesn’t wear down with age as he also produced a season high in Supercoach with 155. Joel Selwood continues his red-hot form with 148 Supercoach Points and his 3rd game in a row (and 4th out of his last 5) in the Top 10 list. Dayne Beams looks to have swapped places with his teammate Pendlebury, scoring 141 Supercoach Points and making the Top 10 list for the 2nd week in a row as well.

We must also consider Captain worthy scores in these Ablett-less times from Sanidlands (137), Callan Ward (136), Todd Goldstein and Nic Nat (133), Brett Deledio (132) and Steele Sidebottom, Ben McGlyn and Liam Shiels (130)

And that will leave our season Top 10 Rankings sitting at

Image 2

Joel Selwood inches closer to Tom Rockliff for 2nd place and Nathan Fyfe’s big weekend now sees him enter the Top 10 for the first time this year sitting equal 9th with Leigh Montagna. The rest of the list remains static for this week.

And now onto the games!

@ MCG Averages: 83.1 Supercoach Points, High Score of 154

Captain Pick(s):

This might be a Friday night to avoid for many with Cotchin going back to his pedestrian scores again and Goddard struggling also with a 3 round average of 81. Brandon Ellis was fantastic last week and has a good name to his game against the Bombers last year, but I fear too few teams will have him in their sides for many to be considering him an option. Dyson Heppell looks to be the Bombers midfielder in the best form with a 3 round average of 114, but he has only produced Captain worthy scores in Round 4 (133), Round 8 (129) and Round 18 (129 again), so there doesn’t seem to be enough upside for mine to warrant picking him as a VC here.

@ StarTrack Oval Averages: N/A

Captain Pick(s):

Ward continues to put up some solid and “safe” Captain scores, with a 3 round average of 131 to his name and 11 of his 18 games being scores 120 or more. Todd Goldstein has the equal 2nd best post GAJ injury average at 143.3 with scores of 166, 131 and 133 in his last 3 games. Going up against Mumford might be a tough game for him, but he’s in form so placing the VC on him isn’t out of the question. Brent Harvey is also a capable VC selection most weeks too.

@ Etihad Stadium Averages: 94.2 Supercoach Points, High Score of 126

Captain Pick(s):

The Suns youngsters have been struggling a tad since the lost of Gary Ablett and they’ll be facing a Blues midfield full of seasoned veterans such as Murphy, Gibbs, Judd, McLean etc. They don’t have a particularly good average while playing at Etihad either. The Blues scores seem to have followed a bit of a trend, with most scoring well in their 2011 clash, but then poorly in the 2012 clash then back to average in their game last year. Murphy has had some good scores this year and he might be able to overpower the young Suns midfielders here.

@ MCG Averages:73.5 Supercoach Points, High Score of 138

Captain Pick(s):

For the first time this year Jarryd Roughead has had back to back games of 100+ with scores of 120 and 125 to his name. Could be a risky chance to beat that again this week, although he’s only had 2 really good scores to his name this year, a 137 VS St Kilda in Round 7 and a 184 VS West Coast in Round 12. He’s never scored higher than 101 against the Dees though, so that may be a concern and with no Gunston he could find himself double teamed. Melbourne games are starting to become the worst for picking Supercoach Captains however, so I’d most likely avoid this game here.

@ Adelaide Oval Averages: 130.0 Supercoach Points, High Score of 130

Captain Pick(s):

The Port team that faced Sydney in Round 13 is looking vastly different than the team that will be facing them in Round 20. Franklin could be the man for this one; he absolutely destroyed Port in the last quarter in their Round 13 clash on the way to 146 Supercoach Points. Port just got back Alipate Carlile and should have Jackson Trengove back, but if they’re struggling for form and/or fitness after their injury layoffs then the Sydney bigs in Franklin and Tippett and others such as Goodes and Reid could have a field day out there. JPK has been down in form over the past month or so, with a 5 round average at 109 and his last two scores of 105 and 100 are well down on his year average. Still, he’s capable of a big one, so you can’t rule him out completely.

From Port’s perspective, I’m sure people will just be wanting players such as Wingard and Robbie Gray to put up some decent scores, let alone worrying about putting a VC/C on them.

@ Simonds Stadium Averages: 61.0 Supercoach Points, High Score of 66

Captain Pick(s):

We originally feared for Joel Selwoods score after Steven Johnson was suspended for 1 game on Monday, but luckily Geelong have had that MRP ruling overturned, so he’ll be free to play here. As you can see from his scores, he’s been the main one to cop the Crowley tags in recent times. You can see that when Johnson missed in 2013 that the Crowley tag went straight to Selwood and he could only produce a score of 54 Supercoach Points.

This will be THE game for a lot of people and it’ll likely be down to Joel Selwood or Nathan Fyfe. Selwood has an AFL high 3 round average of 146, as well as being in the Top 10 scorers for Supercoach in 4 out of his last 5 games. Fyfe has a 3 round average of 133, but since Round 14 has had scores of 143, 158 and 171 to his name.

Captain Pick(s):

I have a feeling in the waters that both Rockliff and Hanley have a very good chance to go LARGE in this one. Rockliff, along with Joel Selwood has been the best Supercoach player since Ablett went down with an injury with a 3 round average of 143 and a 5 round average of 142.6. Hanley we all know about, he scored 160 last time these teams played, and in his last 5 games he’s had scores of 160 and 191 to his name, so I’d consider him as well, could be a big score on the cards for him.

Dangerfield looked downright terrible at times against West Coast and is still obviously playing injured, as well as Scott Thompson. I’d skip both this week, although I think every time I’ve said “Skip Dangerfield because he’s hurt” he’s come back and produced a big score.

Captain Pick(s):

Can Lenny Hayes continue his great form as he edges closer to retirement? He has a 3 round average of 132, but I think it may be another case of too few having him to make him a useful VC/C pick. Libba has hit a cold streak again (something he suffered at the start of the year), so hopefully for our sakes he can turn it around and he could be a pick if you wish to take a bit of a POD risk for your selection, although seeing those averages and scores he has against St Kilda in his previous games would be likely to scare away more than a few when you take into account his current form as well.

Captain Pick(s):

I’m sure every Scott Pendlebury owner wouldn’t mind a score in the 150’s again in this matchup with the Eagles like he’s done twice in their previous 3 encounters. Like Libba, he’s hit a cold streak at the worst possible time, with his 3 round average sitting at 103, which is well down from the 129.5 he was averaging between Rounds 1-16. For those who own Dayne Beams though, the good news is he seems to have been picking up the slack from Pendles with his 3 round average sitting at a very healthy 136. For those that’d usually pick Pendlebury as their “safe” Captain pick, i’m sure there will be a few that transfer that over to Beams. It’s hard to believe that this slump will continue for much longer for Pendlebury though and I am still very tempted to leave the Captain on him this week.

BARRON VON CROWS CAPTAIN SELECTION(S):

Fyfe, Selwood and Rockliff stand out as the biggest 3 for me, with Selwoods scoring potential up in the air due to the potential of a Crowley tag. For that very reason I’ll likely be staying away from him with my C selection, but I’ll whack the VC on him since he’s in red hot form and that’ll likely continue if Crowley goes to Stevie J or someone else. As for my Captain selection, I’ll be skipping Pendlebury this week (who’s been my Captain pick the last 3 weeks) and will be putting it on Tom Rockliff up against the Crows in Brisbane. I really like Hanley’s potential against the Crows too, but since I don’t have him in my side, I won’t be picking him, but he could be a very nice pick this week.

So who will you guys be taking as your VC and C selections this week? Playing it safe now that we’ve hit Finals time, or going for broke and taking some left field picks? Let us know in the comments below, or hit us up on the Twitters @BarronVonCrow

    HI Community
    Here is an interesting option I could choose – VC on Selwood, C on NRoo.
    Thoughts?

    • jockreynolds says:

      Left fielder there Wes! Im a bit conservative old mate but I reckon it might be a bit of a stretch to rely on St Nick for the captaincy. Just the 3 110+ scores for the season so a bit too much of a risk I reckon mate

      • wes says:

        that is the rookie in me… i got them round the wrong way. And of course that is not really possible if I want to use loophole. You are right.
        better see what others are doing

    • Garglesnarf FC says:

      I am thinking of JCarlisle as VC, and Rocky as C. I am thinking that minus Vickery and Conca, big Jake might kick 10.

  2. big aggots says:

    One 100+ score since round 6 for NRoo & can't see the Saints winning anymore games by 10 goals to get him a 179. If you wanted to gamble on him, then maybe as a VC into Pendlebury/Beams. Do you risk a Selwood 125-130 though?

  3. LJB says:

    Some help would be great.

    I have both Langford and docherty in my def bench. Have 4 trades left and looking for league win. Is this too much cash sitting on the bench? Should I get rid of one? have 100k in war chest

    Also should mention have a full team this week so don’t need to use any other trades to cover doughnuts.

    • Derek says:

      No worries for you. If you were wanting to be careful, you could downgrade one of them and put more cash in bank just in case something happens and two premos go down, it will allow you to go bang bang

    • Joey Jo Jo says:

      Yes! Drop one of the them (probably Langford) to Luke Thompson or even a non playing cheap defender and upgrade one of your on field so-so players to a superstar. Its finals – no time to sit on the fence!

  4. BCHawks says:

    V Selwood C Pendles

    • LJB says:

      I'll be doing the same, playing it fairly safe in the finals and looking for my opponent to make the mistake

  5. Porcelain says:

    If you are confident in your D1 to D6, then at Finals time I would be looking to have the Bench as 1 x good and 1 x cheap.

    I have been making my 1 x cheap a Def/Mid – so that I can swap a Mid premo in case a Def premo is injured.

  6. Brandon2416 says:

    thoughts in dal santo as vc against GWS??

  7. Matt says:

    My team is:
    McVeigh, Bartel, Simpson, Birchall, Jaensch, Mitchell (Bews, Jones)
    Selwood, Beams, Sloane, Murphy, Johnson, Griffen, D.Thomas, Dunstan (Taylor, J.Martin)
    Sandilands, Ryder (Ceglar, Brown)
    Dangerfield, Parker, D.Martin, Zorko, Roughead, Wingard (Ambrose, Cameron)
    I have 3 trades and $73,700 in the bank.
    I am 6th and 3rd in leagues and only outside the top 20,000 overall.
    Not sure whether to save trades as safe for the week in a league or try to stay in both.
    Any thoughts?

    • WombatsFC says:

      I'd trade Ceglar for King and get Rocky or Fyffe for Thomas,Dunstan or Griffen. Or maybe Wingard for S.Martin.

  8. Philthy says:

    I'll be whacking the VC on Boomer, the last time he scored 74……… the week later he turned out a 169!!!

    • jockreynolds says:

      Gday there Philthy. I'm more worried that he may taper out.. he went 57 round 4, 84 week after, 100 odd then back to 94 again RD7. When his form drops it sometimes hangs around for a bit

  9. throttlefinger says:

    Hanley VC, NicNat C. Rollin' dem dice.

    • PkMn Trainer Jimmy says:

      I reckon that will pay off. I'm tempted to put the C on Nic Nat… but can't bring myself to do it in case he has a stinker

      • throttlefinger says:

        Selwood is a temptation given how well he has been playing…and usually plays late season.

  10. WombatsFC says:

    VC on Goldy reckon he'll go 160+ or 105-
    if he goes sub 130 I'll put the C Rocky

    • throttlefinger says:

      Big match Womby. Goldie is a wild card but an superb VC choice. Good luck, my man. May the forces of Malcolm and Angus power you.

  11. Jim says:

    I have three trades going into finals, finished second and sixth. I am 1 player from full premo. When should I use these trades?
    I don't to have to contend with a last minute injury in the Grand Final, but I want to make the Grand Final.

    • Donavan says:

      If you can get to full premo with 1 trade then do it this week, to give yourself the best chance of winning, most teams are full premo now.

      If it takes 2 trades to get to full premo, cover injuries, suspensions this week if need be, and get to full premo next week.

    • julz says:

      Hi Jim, I am grappling with this question also, as I am in pretty much the same boat as you with 3 trade left also. Depends who your non-premo player is. Mine is Miles who up to last week has been good. Do you think you can win against your opponent even with your non-premo. For example, I played Langdon last week to cover HIbberd as thought he might get a reasonable score and he did. Although I agree with Donovan in that if you can swap your non premo to a gun with one trade I would do it!
      In my case I will need to do 2 trades to swap Miles to anyone decent so not sure if this is the way to go. I am thinking of cashing in Shenton and Hallahan who I still have on the bench to a non player and Sam Mitchell, that way I can loophole Mitchell against Miles and use Mitchell for coverage in defence as I have the Hibberd debacle.
      Or not sure if I just ditch Hibberd with one trade and hope for the best with Miles! Or upgrade Miles to a Fyfe or Rocky neither of whom I have
      Thoughts would be appreciated.

      • big aggots says:

        Miles is an issue. Out of the blue he ran a hard tag on Treloar. Is this a one-off? I'm not prepared to take another risk with the finals here. Miles to Murphy v Suns for me.

  12. MightyDonsFC says:

    Selwood into Rocky again for me

  13. Gold Rush says:

    Got the C on Broomhead, cleanest player I've ever seen!

  14. The Garbo says:

    Rocky VC pendles C for me

  15. The Garbo says:

    Need some advice lads,

    I’ve moved hooker onto Bartel

    Now am looking at one more trade with both LeCras and Goddard on the block.

    Goddard to Ward

    Or

    LeCras to gray/parker/Harvey

    Would leave me with two trade and anywhere between 170k-250ishk

    • Donavan says:

      I like LeCras to Harvey or Parker.

      Think Goddard will score well against the Tigers this week.

    • Garglesnarf FC says:

      Beware of trading out Bombers players this week. Last time they played Richmond it’s was a Bombers point fest. Boomer is likely to cop the Bugg tag this week while Sydneys run home is very cushy, I like Parker or McGlynn, or the Bombers Chpman if you want a POD.

    • The Garbo says:

      Cheers guys

  16. dave2008 says:

    Thinking VC on Fyfe and if Im happy with his score leave the C on Acres if not switch the C to Rockcliff.
    Also will bring Fyfe in this week as my opponent Robbo has him and he also has Hanley so maybe Swallow to Hanley?

    I have 6 trades with 227 k in the bank and the double chance.
    Team

    D McVeigh Bartel MItchell Bitchall Swallow Enright (Laidler Clurey)
    M Pendles Rocky Kennedy Selwood Delsanto Beams Murphy Zorko (Honeychurch Acres)
    R Sandi JAcobs (Thurlow Clurie)
    F Danger D Martin Dalihaus Gray Parker Roughy ( S Martin Kerstin)

    Any thoughts would be most appreciated and let me know what you are thinking this week and I can help you too.

    • TOM says:

      Maybe upgrade enright or birchall

    • Garglesnarf FC says:

      Fyfe owner here, and not expecting him to go especially big this week, 90-105 range I reckon. Steele Sidebum is THE man if you want a mid premium trade in this week, but I can see having 3 pies in the mids is possibly an overload.

      Dollhouse to Chappy to perhaps? I reckon the bombers will go nuts against the Tiges this week.

  17. David D says:

    Sneaky option if your on the pulse and close to a computer.

    Put VC Rockliff, potential to go huge, I am too tempted to see his score. (Early Sunday Game)

    Put your captain on Beams or Pendles (late sunday game)

    If Rockliffe Goes huge, immediatley after the game throw Acres/Shenton into midfield for Pendles or Beams. So the captaincy is transferred to Acres, and the emergency is thrown on to your collingwood player.

    Its all gonna happen on a Sunday and would be very easy to do if your near a computer and tempted to see Rockliffs score.

    Selwood could very well be tagged Sat.

  18. Crowmagnon says:

    As I'm not using the VC on Friday night, I plan to wait on my final VC/C choices until I've had a look at what my opposition is up to.

  19. Chris says:

    should i get rid of swallow?

  20. Paddy says:

    Team is complete and I have 4 trades left $165k in the bank. Biggest issue is having both Wingard and Pavlich in my forward line. Need to get rid of 1 of them (Pavlich or Wingard will end up being potential cover/loophole)

    I will name my ruck and forward line as my ruck line is also part of my forwards with a swingman: I've had Pyke from the start of the season, and I have had to stick with him.

    Ruck – Sandliands, Pyke (B.Brown, King)

    Forward – Harvey, Parker, Dangerfield, D.Martin, Pavlich, S.Martin (Wingard, Cameron)

    I'm thinking of bringing in Franklin, Gray or McGlynn.

    If I trade out Wingard, I can't afford Franklin, if he is my guy to choose. If I trade out Pavlich, I can afford anyone else.

    Who would you trade out and bring in?

  21. PkMn Trainer Jimmy says:

    VC on Dusty. Has a huge ceiling and is due to pump out a big one.
    C on Ward. I think the Giants will push roos and maybe upset them, expecting Ward to continue the 125+ trend of late.
