Supercoach 2014 prospect: Pearce Hanley

Published by Jock on

Pearce HanleyYou might be surprised to learn that it took me a while to learn this great game.

I’m talking 11 footy seasons from the time I first handled the pill as a 2 year old till I won my first senior premiership with the Karingal Bulls.

So when I see a bloke come to this country and take to the game so easily I sit up and take notice. And when I see a bloke come to this country, take to the game so easily and improve at the rate that Pearce Hanley has improved I become downright aroused.

This kid from the little dairy town called Ballaghaderreen in Ireland’s County Mayo is fair dinkum. And I’m telling you right now that we haven’t seen the best of what he has to offer.


2014 Price (est): Supercoach $512,200, AFL Fantasy $464,000
2014 Position: MID/DEF
2013 averages: 96 SC, 86 DT (20 games)
2012 averages: 91 SC, 82 DT (22 games)
2011 averages: 83 SC, 80 DT (22 games)
2010 averages: 61 SC, 63 DT (9 games)

We saw The Irish Bull come out at the beginning of 2013 and go nuts. By round 10 he was averaging 112 Supercoach points and those that selected him were sitting pretty. By then however the degree to which this bloke can rip shreds off a team was out in the open. Brent Macaffer gave Pearce his first dose of the heavy tag. The effects were devastating.

He would go on to average just 67 Supercoach points between rounds 10 and 14. But do you reckon this gun would have gotten this far in AFL Footy this quickly if he was the kind of bloke to shut up shop when things got tough? Pigs arse. He did what he does best.

He learnt quickly. He worked hard. He again emerged like a bloody lotus flower.

He would go on to average 95 between rounds 16 and 23 despite playing just half a game against GWS and despite copping hard tags from the likes of Taylor Hunt, Daniel Cross, and Taylor Hine.


2014 Predicted Status: Premium
Predicted Average 2014: 98-108 SC
Selection Status: Will be very close to being selected as a defender in JR Brumby FC 2014

Final Word

I believe this individual is something special. A competitive animal who time and time again demonstrates an incredible ability to learn, adapt, and grow. Have never seen anyone take to the game so naturally.

He will have consolidated what he learnt about the hard tag during the preseason and will emerge a very hard man to stop in 2014.

Now Barron Von Crow has him penciled in as a lock which is fair enough. Read his recent look at the Brisbane Lions fantasy relevant players here. But the only thing stopping Jock Reynolds from calling lock on this bloke is the fact that we have plenty of premiums available down back this season. But my word he will go close.

What’s your call?

he’s 115% locked into my backline. great writeup too mate

    SCaddict · 11/12/2013 at 20:37

    Yeah a lock for me too along with Walker as D1 and D2 in Addicts Anonymous FC.

Dools · 11/12/2013 at 20:43

Jock good to see you on the Celtic Tiger.
Like you I'm ridged in the pants with this blokes potential. I do not think that last year was it. I think he will get even better this 2014 season barring injury! but the coin, the coin will be a killer this year.
I need to find a link for the position changes to study more.

    jockreynolds · 11/12/2013 at 22:21

    I think he has at least three seasons worth of improvement left in him before father time kicks in and he finds the other end of the bell curve. I dont mind his pricing… I'd say he's a 60/40 to be in my starting team

How many premiun defenders will you start with? 3 or 4? Liking a Bartel/Danger/Mitchell swing set at the minute, with Scotty Thompson thrown in.

J-Man · 11/12/2013 at 21:27

The guy is a gun. Was close to lock just as DEF last year, now with DEF/MID is an absolute lock.

2014 will be a great year for DEF line. After the heartache throughout 2013, the knowledge that swing players like Hanley, Bartel, Mitchell and Hodge will be available flips this line almost to a set and forget.

throttlefinger · 11/12/2013 at 22:50

Yeah, even with Brisbane's rough start I think Hanley will come out strong. Not a definite lock right now but penciled in as a starter so far. Def is filled with many treasures this year.

@rjc69 · 12/12/2013 at 06:22

I had Hanley in my DT & SC sides all last season & he preformed well. I will be locking him in this season TOO!!

Lucas · 13/12/2013 at 13:48

He is the biggest flat track bully in history, and brisbane have a very very difficult draw.

Although hes an exciting player on the up, I'm gonna have to say a big NO.

Nick · 05/01/2014 at 03:59

Getting less and less certain about picking Pearce. Averaged 79 when tagged and just 86 after round 8. Would be happier with Mitchell, Hodge/Bartel, McVeigh and Dave Swallow as my 4 non rookie defenders.
