Sauce. Tobasco bloody sauce. On fire
What a great rebound season from Sam ’Sauce’ Jacobs. After what can only be described as a below par season 2013, Sauce bounced back big time. I, myself, backed him in from the very beginning and was extremely happy with his efforts during the season pumping out some great scores.
He is an All Australian big man and was a part of an Adelaide team, that by their own admission, was not up to scrap last season. With some new coaching staff and the security of holding on to Dangerfield next season, I think both the Adelaide Crows and Big Sammy Jacobs are due for a big season.

There is no denying that Sam Jacobs had a bloody brilliant 2014 in regards to Supercoach scores and I will thank Jock for his insight in the preseason for taking the chance on him. Jacobs has actually been in my team for the last three seasons for one reason, he is the number one big man down there and that is undisputed.
It’s tough to give him risks considering his 2014 season but I guess the main risk is injury. It has been known in the past that when ruckmen go down, the often go down for long periods of time. In saying that, Jacobs didn’t miss a game in 2014 an, touch wood, I hope he won’t again in 2015
If you were considering bringing Sam Jacobs into your team it would be with the intention to ‘set and forget’. He has a pretty hefty price tag attached to him but with price comes value. His averages over the last four seasons are: 92, 102, 85, 115.
- Didn’t miss a game last season
- Can go large, is a possible Captain choice on th occasion
- Is the main big man down at Adelaide
- Has the likes of Dangerfield and Sloane at his feet. Champions
- Price…. Will cost an arm and a leg
If you were looking for a ruckman that will punch out huge numbers and be very reliable, this is your guy. But for some reason I just can’t get 2013 out of my mind and with a huge price tag I am going to struggle to find a spot on my team for Sauce. At this stage I am going to say….
What are your thoughts on Sam jacobs?
