Bloody great show guys, love your work.

I reckon, Jock, Crouching and Higgo should post their current teams


G'day jock, how are ya? I've got 10 trades and 450k in the bank, however looking at up to three trades this week, to get muddy waters, maybe boomer Harvey, and maybe pendles if he comes back. Either him or Nicky dal. Either way, I can hold off until after next week. Got the league leader this week (I am eight points behind, equal second with four other teams…) so want to make sure I have some firepower!

Any news on pendlebury and heath Shaw? Have you given them the old scotch fillet and parsley caper?


I'd hold off Pendlebury his break-even is 167. I'd look to get him next week.


Done! Although, still looking at Nicky dal. Will score, and good POD…

Will watch the pendlebury to see how the sheep guts and rosemary is treating him. You reckon he'll have a nibble?


Looks like he is out for another two weeks anyway…


How many trades should i have?


Yeah thanks for that Jock. I'm currently sitting 2nd on the ladder but have some threats sitting 3rd and 4th. I'll try and hold off the trades this week.


Well got a respectable 2088 with 5 donuts. Listened to Jock ad brought in Harvey (against my better judgement); do glad I listened to his superlative SC wisdom. Thanks mate!


What do you guys think about Chris Yarran, his only 251k now and he is a good player when up and running or is there better options?

Asif Hedgivasheet

Hi, this is my first season in Supercoach and am quicly learning the ropes but believe too many sideways trades have cost me dearly in the run home.

Currently sitting 7th in my league with 9 trades left and $100k in the bank. i'd appreciate input into my next steps….

Current team –

Def – Deledio, Scotland, Goddard, Enright, Johnson, Lake, Bugg, Delaney and Shaw

Mid – Ablett. Swan, Pendles, Priddis, Barlow, Shiel, Old Macdonald, D Smith

Ruck – Mumford, Giles, Stephenson and Jenkins

FWD – Franklin, Sidebum, Porps, T Adams, Zorko, C Pearce, Pav, Hall & Milera.

I'm a bit lost as to next moves without burning too many trades?? Milera & Smith (though Adams and Hall could go as well) are the most likely trades but don't give me too much bang for the buck….

can some of you legends of the game assist??

The Peanut

"An Ablett stole my baby!"

Thanks boys, another corker …. I am now hooked and feel that I owe you a few beers for the pleasure I get out of your unusual, yet refreshing take on footy.


Wondering what people's thoughts are on S.Selwood, only 499,700 this week.


I've got him…..he's been a godsend!!



depends who you already have .. def good value but id still spend the extra money to get pendlebury/swan/ablet/watson/other selwood before id bring in scot .. saying that if your short of cash you could do alot worse,

id still expect a few low scores to go with those super high scores before the year is out


Thanks Vinnie & MJ. I am trying to make the best use of the money I have. There was a lot of talk about Priddis but not much about S. Selwood. I'm thinking Priddis is considered to be a cut above. I'm also looking at S.Thompson from the Crows so he might be a better option.



In a bit of a pickle mate. Looking to trade in carrazzo for hawkins by flicking johnson into the forwardline..thoughts? Also thoughts on trading out giles for goldstein..Will need to trade out a cashie and leave me with 3 trades for the year, but will leave me with only 1 rookie (zorko) thoughts?


You probably know, but wait a week…


time to upgrade my defense and will go with 3 of these 4. Not fussed in waiting a few weeks to pick them up a little cheaper

1. Waters (WCE) 528k (round 13 upgrade)

2. Johnson (Freo) 495k (round 13 upgrade)

3. Scotland (Cart) 496.6k (round 14 upgrade)

4. Carrazzo (Cart) 465k BE 147 (round 15 upgrade)

I would like your thoughts on which of these guys are must haves or what order you would put them ??

Is there any better options ?? I have lids, god broughton and Lake as my keepers. Exclude Shaw from your thoughts as I feel he isn't great value for $$$


Birchall (HAW) has been a lock for me and a worthy Rd 14- 15 upgrade also. Tipping he's drop in price since Rd 12.

Ted Richards (SYD) is great value for low $400K mark


Thanks Vinnie,

I did look at Birchall and I think he is good for a 90 average for the rest of the year but felt all the others are 100+ averages for the rest of the year .. Am I wrong ??


I'm going Waters and Carazzo out of those 4. Waters because he's had his bye and is in good form and Carazzo because he'll be a bargain. Then Scotland and Johnson in that order I reckon.


Thanks BR, I was actually leaning towards Johnson at no.1 and leaving out waters. Alot of ppl have waters and Johnson has only had one stinker all year, everything else has been over 90.

Can I ask why you have gone with Waters no.1 and Johnson no.4 .. I think both Scotland and Carrazzo are good value picks so will prob lean towards both of them leaving one spot for the other two


My order would be:

Waters av 107 – in a quality side

Scotland av 101 – there is an injury ? but has high numbers against quality opposition

Johnson av 98.7 – has averarge/high numbers against good quality sides. Has a fwd option which may help if you still have Smedts.

Carrazo av 93.2 – has very good numbers against quality sides. Has a 3 score for injury so will come down again around $30000 after Hawthorn. Worth considering too I think.

That probably didn't help too much did it!


rbat just seen this post now, thanks mate

for some reason I am just feeling johnson over waters and I think the two cartlon boys are too good value to pass up ..

might go with the gut a pick johnson – big call but i think alot of ppl are going with waters so if it pays off could make up some ground


I think you might be on to something there. I already have Waters and was thinking about Johnson for my fwd line and putting Carrazo down back in a few weeks when he bottoms out.

Mr Hully

Can Rhyce keep up his good form and is he a finals lock?


all i can say jock, is you killed me picking lee spurr, his more like lee spudd, he doesnt get a run and he kills me sitting there getting big fat donuts

Poo Bum

Anyone interested in Juddy, haven't seen any talk about him and he's bloddy cheap at the moment. Is he worth it or stay away.


Hey, i'm a bit confused with what i should be doing with my team. I am taking Higgo's advice and try and improve my defence. Here's how my team is looking right now.

Trades: 8

Bank: 121 500

Defenders: Deledio, RShaw, Lake, Dempsey, Hargrave, Mohr and (Ellis, SShaw)

Midfielders: Ablett, Pendlebury, Watson, JSelwood, Priddis, Sewell and (Williams, TAdams)

Rucks: Ryder, Giles and (Redden, Stephenson)

Forwards: Franklin, Dangerfield, Tippett, Porpylzia, Motlop, Zorko, Martin and (Black, Hall)

The trade i will make this week is

Porplyzia –> Cloke

What should i do with my team?


get rid of motlop if u can for cloke but if not then porplysia

The Svankonsberger

Hey Jock,

I have Rocky in my team and i have been BURNED so far. Should I consider trade him out for Jobey Watson. And I listened to you and got in Boomer 🙂

Thanks you son of a gun


Why have you been burned? He's averaging 108!


JOCK! and anyone else seeing this, money and trades not an issue, Beams or Sidebottom for my forward line?


Not a bad dilemma to have.. I'd say Sidebottom, just.




I had the same problem 4 weeks ago and went with Steele…

and happy I did.


Yep went side bottom in for Lewis.

Got Priddis in for the injured Hartlett, and FINALLY got rid of Magner for young S.Gibson to sit on the bench. Still with 13 trades left and sitting top 8 all 3 leagues.


and also, Priddis or Watson for midfield? im leaning towards priddis


Jobe is having a great year, but at this point Priddis is a bargain. Grab him now and spend the rest elsewhere.


Took a huge risk this week. Heath Scotland scored well but looked proppy on the weekend. (Maybe it was just the long sleeve jumper and socks up combination?) Regardless, I've burnt him for the in form Rhyce Shaw who still has a low B/E. Freed up the cash for me to get Swan for Horsely who is in scintillating form and, if last year is anything to go by, finishes seaosons with a wet sail. Only 7 trades left but my team is well and truly set when Rhyce hits his ceiling and I upgrade him. Anyone considering him?


I am at 774 overall. I have no chance at the big one, do I. 🙁 Ah well, maybe next year!!


if your team is set and you dont get any injuries you have a chance 🙂 keep the faith mate 😀


Would anyone else consider Lindsay Gilbee (400 k) as a potential upgrade towards end of season when back from injury?


steer clear champ, grab r shaw. cheaper with much bigger upside. i woudlnt be taking my chances coming into finals with a player who hasnt played all yr.


Not a chance as long as my a**hole points south….


Not sure who to get next got 9 trades left and 838,700 salary cap who do you think I should get


who have you got ??


in the midfield I have pendles, ablett, Stanton, Priddis, goddard, Marly williams,mcdonald and clay smith


backline -Deledio, heath shaw, scotland, clarke, bugg, dempsey, bootsma, ellis and sam shaw


forward – Franklin, sidebum, dangerfield, dustin martin, zorko, smith, porplyzia, pfeiffer and adams


rucks – ryder, giles, jenkins and stephenson


thinking about getting jobe watson for one on my cheap mids or get beams for devon smith


mcdonald for any of

j. selwood

s. Thompson

d. swan

j. watson

s. mitchel

m. boyd

and thats in the order id prefer – all proven guns so can't go wrong


move goddard to backline and trade out ellis for another of those midfielders

bugg for any of






again in that order for me


i wanna keep ellis because he is most likely to play all year and i will just have him on my bench and i dont have someone to move in the mid for goddard


id look at upgrading giles if you have the $$$ left over

mumford in a weeks time will be cheap cheap

everything else is very $$$ in the ruck department


Mummy will go down nicely in $$$ Reckon maybe in a few weeks time to around $475K- basically a sideways trade for Giles.

May get big scores this week though against West/Orren


Lot of talk of holding trades for run home……I'm taking the the advice of The Ancient Art of Supercoach 2012 TRADING …..holding 2 or 3 for any injuries but looking at getting team finalised by round 14…


Hey hows my team looking what should i do with it!!!!!!!


trades:4 so disappointed with myself with that

Heres my team

DEFENCE:Deledio, goddard, shaw, marty clarke, bugg,lake and ellis. bench: spurr, smedts

MIDFIELD:Ablett, pendlebury, stanton, j.selwood, priddis and shiel. Bench: wingard, kennedy

RUCK:Naitanui, Giles. bench:Redden, Stephenson

FORWARD:Franklin, Dangerfield, Sidebottom, Okeefe, riewoldt, Porplysia, Zorko. Bench: Paine, Elliot



Shiel's B/E is pretty low so he could make you some cash and you could grab a fallen premium like maybe Pendles (deoending how much he falls) or even ball magnet Carrazo who will be a bargain soon enough.


Your D5 D6 and D7 look a bit unpredictable in scores.

Your Mids look pretty much set, leave Shiel, he will be OK.

Great Ruck combo should see you get 220-250pts per week

Forwards maybe just upgrade Porps in a few weeks time for a in form player.

Backline would get my attention.


Def: H Shaw, R. Shaw, S. Shaw, Goddard, deledio, suckling, Glass, Ellis, darley

Mid: J Selwood, swan, Ebert, sidebum, Bartel, horsley, Old Mac, Pfeiffer

Ruck: cox, Giles, redden, Stephenson

Fwd: Franklin, danger field, boomer, Tippet, j. Riewolt, zorko, Porp, folau, Kennedy

Bank: 105,000


How's it look


Ahh Mr.Chris.

You SHAW have interesting backline. Need upgrade one in middle and one in forward … two trade please. ROK/JPK/NDS/CLOKE of not invisible father … many option. Please consider.



Hey guys,

Looking for anyone's input, i want to bring Cloke in this week and I'm tossing up between D.Smith or A.Kennedy to trade out, anyone's thoughts on which one?


Well Smith is playing and Kennedy isn't. So I'd trade Kennedy.


Second that…Kennedy, you want nearly all your GWS players out soon apart from maybe Shiel/Giles.


I have 14 players out this week BUT im playing the bottom team this week.He has 6 out.Im currently 6th in my comp but 1 loss away from 8th.And 1 win away from 1st.Its a tight comp with the top 9

Im thinking of trading Spurr from Freo out as i cant see him coming back??

Should i trade him out??

With the $$ in the bank i have $342k to spend on a player.

My other def are Delidio Bugg Goddard Mohr R.Hargrave Birchall Suckling Surjan.

Please can someone give me some advice.

I hooked hard this year on SuperCoach.Thanks


How many trades do you have left


10 trades left.Thanks Champ


Hayden Crozier – Anybody know if he is worth a pick? Thinking of using him as a downgrade from the horse.


dont do it .. down grade horse to gipson from North


Thanks MJ


MJ, you are a champ for all your advice! Thanks!


Hi everyone! I have 9 trades and 184k remaining after getting muddy waters in this week. Need to finish off my side in the next few weeks.

What's kreuzer's deal? Should I ditch him? If so, who for? I'm thinking dogdog (low BE, only going to go up so I want to do it this week) my other rucks are Giles, jenkins and Stephenson.

Also, is it worth jumping on Sam Shaw? I would drop the axe on spurr. Either that or go straight from Dempsey/Clarke to carazzo in r15.

Looking at getting another forward premium, at the moment I have sidebum, danger, Hawkins, josh hill, Adams, dickson, Zorko, buddy, dusty. Considering chappy or stevie j. Whaddaya reckon?


Or cloke or boomer…


cloke – boomer will stink it up again in a few fews


Haha fair enough. This week, do you think? It will be three trades this week if I do, but they are players I want anyway so it makes no difference.

Will hold off on stevie j and chappy, high BE scores. And not sure I can afford them all…

Marky mark

What's peoples opinion,

Want to get corazzo into my team

Who should I get rid for him, my backline has







Bench of S.Shaw & Smedts


simple – clarke to carrazzo 🙂

Marky mark

Good call that's what I'm thinking too…

Just wanted an opinion

Lions Den

Grimes or Broughton?

Marky mark

Broughton hands down!!!

Lions Den

Mitch Clark is in my opinion one to get, got GWS twice, Gold Coast once, Brisbane once and Port once.

I'm tossing up between him or Boomer and Gibson and Crozier.


I probably wouldn't go Clark the ball just doesn't get down there enough.. I picked up boomer last week and he ripped out 138 or so..

Dons diehard

Hi guys

Just wondering if you still recommend avoiding trades this round even if you have guys like treloar and magnet with high break evens? Got 11 trades but not much lunch money and sitting top 4 in 3 leagues and 6th in another league.

Have some great guns but have ended up with a few really skinny cows which are preventing me from taking off
