DAVID ARMITAGE: Supercoach Spotlight 2018

DAVID ARMITAGE: Supercoach Spotlight 2018

David Armitage missed all but 2 games in 2017 with a groin injury (rumour has it he was injured filming a remake of the Simpsons classic “Man Getting Hit by Football”). The disappointments of 2017 could be the opposite in 2018… I can’t think of an exact opposite for word disappointment. CS Lewis used to […]

ALEX WITHERDEN – 2018 Supercoach Spotlight

By Ben Madden (Patch is still chasing the boffins around trying to fix the ‘Patch posts everything’ bug.) Can Alex Wither-TON avoid the second year blues?

CHARLIE CURNOW – 2018 Supercoach Spotlight

Charlie Curnow has been spoken about as a breakout contender since the second Supercoach closed in 2017.
