def: shaw hibberd, kelly, newnes, edwards rainbow.
mids: ablett, pendelbury, fyfe. selwood, swallow VB anderson, freeman
ruck: nicnat,, leuy
forwards:, lids, goddard, swan, mitchell, salem, hogan

not sure bout my rookies so far and ruck structure


I like your MIDS and FWDS DSDS, if you are worried about your RUCKS may i suggest downgrading Kelly to a midpricer in your back line and upgrading Berger.


ive got 92K in the bank so can upgrade luey to zac smith, have to see how smith goes next nap cup match tho


Personally, i would go higher to a more proven ruck such as Goldy


DSDS – I want to steel this team – great effort mate – I don't disagree with any of your selections in principle without them all been my preference.

Areas I would worry about – defensive rookies – will there be 4 that will play – they normally show up but not banking that will be the case this year.

Leuy is sucking a lot of people in – Not sold – his average was dismal before he got injuried last year when he was sharing Ruck duties with West – same likely now he'll share with martin

Otherwise best of luck with this awesome team

Juan Tamad

That’s a very strong team,.. you sure you have enough dough to buy your bench players?


Thoughts/ Comments please;

Hi everyone, this is the first post of my team. I have been waiting until I am confident that the majority will be there for good, obviously rookies still pending.

Shaw, Newnes, Savage, C. Pearce, Rohan, Goddard (Hamling, Wigg)

Ablett, Rockliff, Pendlebury, Fyfe, Selwood, Newton, Anderson, Freeman (Boekhurst, Laverde, Steele)

Mumford, NicNat (Read)

Goddard, Martin, Swan, Salem, Clark, Hogan (Lambert, Krackour)

Please advise, good and bad feedback.

King Menace

Gary Rohan, interesting. Do you think he will improve?


He is purely in my side if he takes Malceski's Half Back role. Have heard his name as well as others (Jetta) thrown around for it.

Come Rd 1 if he is named on the bench or fwd pocket ill trade out.


I really admire the Rohan move. I've been umming and aahing about it for ages but I decided to go with T. Hunt instead, but if Rohan does make that role at Sydney his own he could be the most improved supercoach player of the year.


PJ8 – this is the very same structure I am running with at the moment so its a big thumbs up from me. We have different players but thats more of a preference thing.

Not yet sold on Pearce or Rohan
Love the Midfield – I don't have Selwood due to Crowley tag if S. Johnson misses the first couple of games.
Massive call on Mumford but love it – nice early draw and first maneuver advantage to you
I don't know why Martin is in as many teams as I see him in. Inconsistent player who dropped to 400k last year. Lids has more upside IMO

Great work PJ8 – looking at a big year mate


Thanks Irish, sounds like i would like the look of your team as well. I see this structure being the best. Taking a punt on Mumford could pay off, fittest he has been.

Appreciate your opinion


Nice team


Liking the team but I was wondering if you think Z. Jones might fall into that free defensive position instead of Rohan? I'm a SC novice more or less so might be a stupid question….


Last I heard is Z. Jones is injured. I have know changed Rohan to Henderson


Hi Community,

Here is my team. Please tell me how to improvement.

Shaw, Enright, Newnes, Ibbotson, Whitecross, Goddard (Edwards, Viojo-Rainbow)

Ablett, Pendlebury, Fyfe, Selwood, Wines, Van Berlo, Heeney, Boekhorst (Vandenberg, Freeman, Lambert)

Natanui, Leuenberger (M. Cox)

Deledio, Goddard, Westhoff, Swan, Salem, Blease (Daniel, Krakouer)


*how to improve it not how to improvement


James nothing wrong with the structure here mate – solid team

I'd have a few different players but thats just a preference thing

Want to have a look at Ibbo before I commit
Whitecross might not get up for round 1 – if he does he's too cheap not to pick
Not convinced on VB – Newton might have a higher ceiling
Luey has me concerned but without been able to see Bellchambers I don't think there is a better option if you go Midprice in the ruck
Westhoff is a great POD selection – could be anything this year – has me tempted but don't have the big balls required to select him (for now)

Good work James, you done well here mate

Seaford Scouse

Hi James, good effort mate. If Daniel remains unsighted might be worth considering dropping and move lambert to the fwd line to give yourself another rookie mid with plenty of options to choose from. Good luck mate, (like Mick, love the Westhoff pick also!!)


DEF: Malceski, Simpson, Shaw, Newnes, Rohan, Goddard (Maynard, Saad)

MID: Ablett, Pendlebury, Sloane, Swallow, Rich, Van Berlo, Freeman, Lambert (Steele, Dumont, Boekhurst)

RUC: Nic Nat, Leunberger (Cox)

FWDS: Gray, Goddard, Martin, Swan, Clark, Hogan (Karnezis, Krakouer)



If I had one concern over structures here mate it might be an over spend in defense – Malceski, Simpson and Shaw will all be available at 450k at some poit during the year i'd say. Granted all are going to be top 6 defenders so if you go this route you need not worry about this line too much during the year.

personally i'd want a bit more beef in the middle, by downgrading one of the big defenders and getting in another gun keeper in the midfield moving Rich down to M6.

Everything else comes down to player preference – Not sold on Rohan, VB, Luey, Martin and Clark but thats not to say they are not valid picks

Best of luck for the year mate


Thanks for the feedback mate. Love your work! Who would you downgrade down back and who for? Also I've gone ibbo for rohan! Thought my mids were a bit thin! Whose another good premo that you'd go for?

Hope to hear back soon!

Midfield is very weak compared to most.
Also i don't like the selections of Bellchambers, Lumumba and Brown



If I had one concern over structures here mate it might be an understanding of your Midfield players. Are you selecting Swallow, Mitchell and Steven as season long keepers?
If so you might find yourself struggling against teams in the latter part of the year. if you are using 1 or 2 of these as stepping stones have you factored that into your trading plans? What might happen here is you get tempted to trade one of these out for a permo midfielder before the rest of you side is upgraded – this might lead to a Brown or Hogan staying around for longer than they should.

Dangerous structure if you don't have a clear trading plan.

Brown is a bad option down back – be luckly to average 45 and most likely only get up to 180k – not many options here I know but we will all struggle if Brown is the best one!

Bartel sucking a few in – not convinced

Hope this helped mate and best of luck for the year

personally i'd want a bit more beef in the middle, by downgrading one of the big defenders and getting in another gun keeper in the midfield moving Rich down to M6.

Everything else comes down to player preference – Not sold on Rohan, VB, Luey, Martin and Clark but thats not to say they are not valid picks

Best of luck for the year mate


Lumumba, really? Langdon has a better scoring output for same price. Nathan Brown will get games, but will barely move in price. Jack Steven is questionable, needs to return to 2013 form.


I don't mind the Lumumba selection… Not keen to go there myself, but I reckon it could pay off


DEF: Smith, Shaw, Newnes, Henderson, Edwards, Goddard, Viojo-Rainbow, Newman
MID: Ablett, Pendles, Selwood, Sloane, Greene, Rich, Boekhorst, Freeman, Vandenberg, Steele, Lambert
RUC: Goldy, Nic Nat, Read
MID: Goddard, Swan, Martin, Salem, Hogan, Laverde, Daniel, Krakouer

I have $213,600 remaining. Do I upgrade Henderson to someone like Hampton? Do I upgrade Rich to Wines? or Should I upgrade Greene to Fyfe? I like Greene becuase he is a POD and has a good early draw. Thoughts?


Viojo looks to down the pecking order at Carlton for young rooks. Perhaps switch him to Adam Saad (GC), who looked pretty good and has a strong ready made AFL body. Saad playing in GC next NAB match too, so that's promising.
I worry that you're very thin thru D6-8 if your rooks aren't 100% nailed.


How do I fix that up VC?


Well first up, like I said, switch Viojo to Saad. You're structure is all good then *if* Saad or Goddard are gunna play and score.
If there isn't a good rookie to pick at D6, you might have to re-structure your side a bit mate and spend some extra cash there to be sure you have 6 starting (and scoring!) defenders.


G'day community, thoughts??

DEF: Shaw, Hibberd, Newnes, Ibbotson, Whitecross, Goddard (Maynard, Saad)
MID: Ablett, Pendlebury, Selwood, Sloane, Swallow, Rich, Heeney, Boekhorst (Vandenberg, Freeman, Atkins)
RUCK: Jacobs, Naitanui (Read)
FWD: Martin, Swan, Mitchell, Walters, Salem, Lambert (Daniel, Krakour)


Damo, don't count on Whitecross playing early unfortunately


Possible replacements? Not sure where else I can downgrade to fork out the cash


Walters to either Hogan or Mitch Clark..


I'm not completely sold on KPP's, do you think starting with 3 FWD rookies could cut it this year?


Sure mate, if it means you have no obvious holes in the rest of your (backline) it makes sense to start the good rooks no matter where they are on the field


Thanks for the advice mate makes a lot of sense, I have around 420k to use on a whitecross replacement if he doesn't play, who would you recommend starting? I like what C Hampton has to offer as a potential POD, however cheaper options that spring to mind include Seedsman and Langdon. Picking either of the 2 cheaper options mentioned may leave me enough to upgrade dusty or swallow to an ultra premium (E.g Robbie Gray), Worth the punt? In the end I'll probably end up going with my gut, but I always like to see what others opinions are!


I reckon you're on the right track. I currently have Hampton, but Langdon is very much on my watchlist. Seedsman too. FWIW, I have Gray proudly sitting at F1, and it's a nice feeling! What a superstar!


Def: brodie smith, heath Shaw, Michael Hibberd, newnes, Whitecross, lever, Goddard (r), Maynard (r)

Mid: Ablett, Pendles, Fyfe, Griffen, Halla han, van Berlo, Cripps, Anderson, Laverde (r), freeman (r), lambert (r)

Ruck: NicNat, Leuenberger, nankervis (r)

Fwd: Robbie Gray, Deledio’s, Swan, T Mitchell, Salem, mitch Clark, Hogan (r), Steele (r)


Could be a winner with Hallahan as a mid-price POD Jess!
Love that FWD line.
Just be careful in your backline and be ready to re-structure your team if Whitecross isn't picked early, which is very likely!


Burgoyne, Shaw, Simpson, Newnes, Whitecross, Goddard (kelly, maynard)

King Menace

I like this team very much


Love the Adcock pick, currently in my team.

King Menace

Is Adcock worth a go?


Where's your 8th defender?


I don't see how you've got this team under the salary cap maggie??


I'm seeing a lot of teams with no ruck back up in case R1 or R2 goes down. i currently have TBC at R3 as insurance..$300,000 worth of insurance. Are there better (cheaper) options that will get a game? I originally had Ryder in my forward line so i could shift him to ruck if i got an injury, however I was advised that Ryder's scoring ability may be impacted by Lobbe playing as the number 1 ruck at Port. Would love some feedback


Seems to be the latest trend Bacon, a month ago everyone had Ryder or TBC in the fwd line with a DPP swing to back up the rucks.

At the moment i have no back up, my plan is to pick up Ryder in the fwd line at about Rd 6 when he drops (IMO he will drop).

So no back up until then but as they say, no guts no glory!


I plan on doing exactly the same PJ8


Ryder at F6 at the end of the year and I'll be happy. Hopefully the plan works out.


Bacon, first let say that you smell fantastic.
There are a number of great articles on ruck strategy on the site: I'd do a bit of digging and this tricky part of selecting our squad is made a lot clearer.
For what it's worth, the option of not starting with cover is because it's too wasteful to have $300k sitting on the pine in the early stages of the year. Money that can be utilized on the field to generate more points from the start!
IF you will sleep better by having 'insurance' in the rucks, you can hope that Bellchambers is clear to play Rnd 1, then select him as a starting forward. If you also select Cox or Read as your DPP R3, you can then swing them around so that Bellchambers can cover in the ruck if needed


thanks..for the compliment and the advise hahaha. cheers guys..


I currently have Lycett sitting in a F3/4 as back up for Nic Nat and Goldy. He scored quite well in the games where it was NicNat and himself (around 90 I think), is noted a part time forward and has an opportunity to be playing down there with the Darling injury. I will be watching closely in the NAB. Of course Sinclair from the Weagles is cheaper but probably behind Lycett for game time – anyone from the west able to confirm this?

I plan to slowly move him down the FWD rankings to F6 or even hopefully the bench all going well! Most likely I will stuff up my trades and be depressed by round 9.

I only play for league wins and lifting up that cup at the end of the year, so saving 1-3 trades if a ruck goes down could make the difference for me. I guess it would be viewed as a waste by the rankings purists.


Yes, Lycett ahead of Sinclair plus Sinclair has just picked up an injury – broken thumb I think.

I am using Lycett in similar way. Also have Nic Nat – so if he goes down Lycett likely to score bigger as will get more time in ruck.


Sinclair injured
Lycett & Naitanui ruck duties
Mackenzie out for the entire season
McGovern to play down back, covers Mackenzie
Darling out for at least the first month

There is gold amongst all of the above.

Cow Roll

I've seen Lycett play. He has high efficiency 76% and low clanger rates 1.2%. Sinclair is the opposite.


But if we select a non playing rooking ruck aren't we effectively throwing away 100k?

TBC at R3 is going to make you money, not much, but it will make some money. And also you can use the fwd line spot on a playing rookie that will make you money.

Or am I totally missing something?? The way i see it is a trade off between using your $ for points, or for making more $

Option 1:
R2 (Ryder) 540k
R3 (non playing rookie) 100k
FWD 6 (TBC) 300

Cost 940k
amount of $ scoring you points (R2 & FWD 6) = 840k
amount of $ gaining interest (FWD6) **Assume ryder/R2 isn't going to go up** = 300k

Option 2:
R2 (Jamar or McEvoy) 490k
R3 (TBC) 300k
FWD 6 (playing rookie) 150k

Cost 940K
amount of $ scoring you points (R2 & FWD 6) = 640k
amount of $ gaining interest **again assume your R2 just maintains his price** (R3 & FWD6) = 450k
+ insurance

if that makes any sense….


The idea of selecting Bellchambers for cover is based around him starting in the forward line. As he is a dual position player, you would be able to swing him into the ruck if needed by also selecting a DPP at R3 (Cox, Read).Does that make sense mate?


Hey Community,
here's the winning team!
D – Shaw, Enright, Newnes, langdon, Sheppard or Geary, whitex (Clurey, dick)
M – GAJ, Fyfe, Priddis, Dangerfield, Wines, Swallow, VB, J. Anderson (Heeney, Leverde, Lang)
R – Nic Nat, Bellend (Cox)
F – Bartel, Swan, Higgins, Knights, Hogan, Lambert (Daniel, Krak)


I N Pieman

You’d have a much better chance if you swapped Higgins to Tom Mitchell & turned Knights into a rookie then upgraded some of your mids to even bigger guns.


I have changed again Pieman! Right only my rookie selections will change and possibly whitex (not looking good , not picked again) So…..

B – Smith, Enright, Newnes, Higgins, Goodard, Hamling (long Saad)
M – GAJ, Fyfe, Priddis, Selwood, Dangerfield, Wines, Anderson, Heeney (freeman, lambert, Krark)
R – Nic Nat, Bellend (Cox)
F – Bartel, Martin, Swan, Mitchell, Karnezis, hogan (lonie Daniel)



Just to totally confuse you, I dont mind Higgins, but you need to play either him or young Goddard in the forward-line to open up that Def/Fwd swing. This will give you more flexibility throughout the season, and will almost certainly save you trades.


G'Day Community,

B: Hibberd, Newnes, Suckling, Yeo, Mayes, Dick, (Goddard, McGuinness)
M:Ablett, Rockliff, Pendlebury, Fyfe, J.Selwood, Van Berlo, Cripps, Newton, (Boekhorst, A.Saad, Freeman.)

A saint in geelong

interesting POD in suckling, problem with hawks are that they share it around so much their ceilings as so low. Full strength mid pricer team, could explode


G'day all! This team has changed 8 times today so far so any advice would be fantastic! Not sure about Heps after surgery and with the ASADA stuff. May d/g to Swallow and upgrade Smith in the ruck who I'm very on the fence about

Def- Shaw, Enright, Newnes, Ibbotson, Moore, Goddard (McKenzie, Saad)
Mids – Our Lord And Savior Gary Ablett, Beams, Sloane, Heps, Wines, Rich, anderson, heeney (boakhorst, laverde, freeman)
ruck – nic nat, smith (read)
fwd- Bartel, Goddard, Dusty, Swan, Hogan, C Daniel (lonie, lambert)



Moore is out injured for a while



If I had one concern over structures here mate it might be an over spend in defense – Malceski, Simpson and Shaw will all be available at 450k at some poit during the year i'd say.

personally i'd want a bit more beef in the middle, by downgrading one of the big defenders and getting in another gun keeper in the midfield moving Rich down to M6.

Everything else comes down to player preference – Not sold on Rohan, VB, Luey, Martin and Clark but thats not to say they are not valid picks

Best of luck for the year mate


DEF: Burgoyne, Smith, Newnes, Lever, Edwards, H. Goddard (Rainbow, Saad)
MID: Ablett, Pendles, Jelwood, Wines, Swallow, Freeman, Heeney, Lambert (Amon, Anderson, Laverde)
RUC: Martin, Goldy, (Cox)
FWD: Gray, Delido, Swan, Mitchell, J. Martin, Salem (Clark, Hogan)

$10k in the bank, rearranged because of Nic Nat and injury concerns…


Martin in the ruck is a unique choice. Personally not convinced that any 3 backline rooks can deliver value. Maybe consider converting Mitchell or Martin into a Def


I think I have finally settled on my structure , have about $27K left. Last year the forward rookies put up rubbish scores so I have decided to go cheaper down back hoping to find 3 or 4 decent rookies with some mid price options.

Enright, C , Newnes, J ,Vlastuin ,Pearce, C ,Smedts, B , Goddard, H (A, Sadd , Viojo-Rainbow, D )

Ablett, G ,Pendlebury, S ,Selwood, J ,Kennedy, J ,Parker, L ,Newton, B ,Cripps, P ,Anderson, J (Boekhorst, B ,Freeman, N ,Krakouer, N)

Maric, I , Naitanui, N ( Read, T )

Deledio, B , Martin, D , Swan, D , Mitchell, T , Salem, C , Clark, M , (Hogan, J Lambert, K)

Feedback greatly appreciated

A saint in geelong

my team is similar to yours but I spent just a little more in my mids then forwards. So the choice is do you have a crouch as M6, hit the ground running and hope the mid/forward rookies lift. Or do you go the 200k mid (newton or NVB etc.) and have a premium in F4. Interesting to see if others are having these thoughts when structuring their sides


Yep I have looked at M6 crouch but would he score more than a mitchell or a lids? I doubt it so I reckon a mid rookie will outscore a fwd rookie.

Supercoack Kid

Here is my team, advice welcome, but post reasons why/why not you dont like someone


Nice team, although it probably isn't worth having a $177,000 player in Cockatoo on the bench, save the cash and you can almost upgrade Bellchambers into Naitanui


Hi all. Would love some feedback.

DEF: BSmith, HShaw, Hibberd, Newnes, ZJones, Clurey, HGoddard, ASaad
MID: Ablett, Pendles, Fyfe, Selwood, Newton, Anderson, Heeney, Boekhurst, Freeman, Laverde, Vandenburg
RUCK: Goldstein, Nic Nat, Read
FWD: Gray, Deledio, Swan, Mitchell, Salem, Clark, Hogan, Lambert

Go to town.


I love that you have Gray in your team, i'll be going the same way. Classic SHARK move!


Yeah, can't believe he's not in more teams. Reckon he'll be the highest scoring FWD for sure.


B Smith, Shaw, Hodge (Whitecross)
Newnes, Ibbotson, Edwards, (Goddard)

Ablett, Sidebottom, Wines, O'Meara (Anderson)
Ellis, Rich, Newton, Cripps (Heeney, Freeman)

Naitanui, Bellchambers (Read)

D.Martin, Swan, Bomtempelli (Daniel)
J.Martin, Salem, Hogan (lambert)

Bigger down back as rookies meh


a lot of mid pricers to bargain on


which would you consider mid pricers? wines, o'meara, ellis, i think will hit premo status. sidebottom has talk of a tag but still sits firmly behind pendles and swanny, can also see greenwood doing damage…
Rich, Bontempelli, J martin, Ibbotson are the only ones i feel are mid rangers… however would love some suggestions on where to improve 🙂 also rookies too..


alright guys balls out, here it is

Simpson Shaw Kelly Newnes Macmillan Goddard Hamling Saad
Ablett Pendles Selwood Priddis Griffin Cripps Anderson Freeman Heeney Vandenberg Steele
Goldy NicNat Cox
Deledio Bartel Swan Salem Clark Hogan Lambert Daniel

Take your best shot, im all ears


Solid. Just not sure on Anderson and Freeman as starters. Assume you will change those after NAB Cup.


Hi all,
This is my team with 121K left
Def: Burgoyne, Harbrow, Newnes, Ibbotson, Geary and H Goddard (N Brown and D McKenzie)
Mid: Ablett, Pendles, Viney, Langford, Aish, T Adams, D Rich and Heeney (Boekhorst, Freeman and Lambert)
Ruck: Minson and Nic Nat (T Read, DPP with Ryder)
Forward: Deledio, Ryder (DDP with Read), Swanny, T Mitchell, Salem and Hogan (Karnezis and C Daniel)
Any feedback welcome


mids drop away quick after your top 2. Maybe too many mid-pricers there. Looks like only 10 keepers. Perhaps convert some mid-pricers into 2 more keepers


def: Shaw, Newnes, thompson, ibbotson, moore, goddard (vjojo, Mckenzie)

mid: Ablett, fyfe, ward, greene, swallow, rich, heeney, boekhorst (freeman, lambert, steele)

Ruck: Maric, Lycett (cox)

Forwards: deledio, westhoff, swan, mitchell, clarke, hogan (laverade, daniel)


Moore is injured


Hey Jarrod,

Interesting team, plenty of unique selections.

DEF – Looks solid. Commend the Scotty Thompson selection. If got back to his 90 > ave season, then you'll be having a huge collect there. Moore…..not sure…..No idea of his price, perhaps replace him with Clancee Pearce?

MID – M1 to M3 is superb. M4 to M6 looks a little risky for mine. I'd sleep better at night if Greene or Swallow were a super premium. I don't mind 4 x premiums/Swallow/Rich/Rook, Rook.

RUCK – Ze Mullet!!!!! Like it……he finished off 2014 nicely. Lycett, interesting….ballsy pick, but commend it. Nic Nat breaks down again, then you'll be laughing!

FWD – Pretty bloody good. The Hoff doesn't mind exploding early.


DEFENCE – Malceski, Shaw, Newnes, Seedsman, McMillan, Whitecross
MIDFIELDERS – Pendlebury, Sloane, Gibbs, Greene, Swallow, Adams, Van Berlo, Boekhorst
RUCKS – Naitanui & Wood
FORWARDS – Bennell, Swan, Edwards, Mitchell, Clarke, Karnezis
BENCH – Dick, Scharenburg, Dumont, Freeman, Lambert, Durdin, Hogan, Steele


There it is! An Ablett-less team. Thought maybe an Ablett less team would make up for it with a stronger midfield.

General Soreness

Killender, ominous name unfortunately the team not as ominous. I can only count 7-8 potential season keepers, you should be aiming for at least 10+. There are a few POD's in there but unfortunately not ones that are SC relevant i.e. Edwards, WhiteX, Wood. Scharenberg is injured wont see him until at least mid year, Durdin unlikely to play. Karnezis preseason specialist real season spud. Structurally your team looks relatively sound, Adams is an interesting pick, done nothing to suggest that he will exceed expectations but there is an air of expectation surrounding him, as I said it will be interesting. WhiteX unlikely to play regularly, didnt make their NAB 3 (strong team), Edwards is what he is cannot see where he will derive improvement from, Wood is not a keeper, nor a stepping stone, nor a cash cow, avoid. Malceski is a massive spend, downgrade here to another premo, pocket the coin or use elsewhere. Like the pick of Greene and Bennell.


DEF : Hibberd, Langdon, Savage, Ibbotson, Geary, T. Hunt , (Steinberg, Goddard)

MID : Ablett, Pendlebury, B. Crouch, A. Swallow, Newnes, Rich, Hallahan, van Berlo, (Anderson, Freeman, Mckenzie)

RUCK : Naitanui, Bellchambers, (Read)

FWD : Ryder, Deledio, Swan, Salem, Clark, Karnezis, (Hogan, C. Daniel)

Still got $200+K in the bank but could be a bit vulnerable down back as I'm gambling on some blokes coming back from injury or stepping up this year following some team changes or different roles.


like the thinking on Def. With Savage injury, maybe put Newnes back there, downgrade Steinberg a bit and put Griffen or Wines in the Mid?


First I've heard about Savage (been out of action for a few days), but if he's having hamstring trouble I'm not touching him! Really good advice, cheers mate!


going a different way

Kelly, Fisher, Newnes, KK, Macmillan, Jaksch (Hamling, Saad)
Ablett, Selwood, Danger, Greene, Wines, Martin (fwd), Swan (fwd), Wallis (Lang, Freeman, Krakouer)
Lycett, Grundy (McLaren)
Bartel, J Martin, TBC, Salem, Clark, Karnezis (Hogan, Lambert)

my thinking:
no rooks on the ground.
the best value rooks look like they are in the fwd line, therefore I put DPP in the Mid to bring them down when I trade the rooks out
no value rooks in defence, so went higher for D5 and D6 (maybe look to for Fisher/Jaksch to be 2 X 380k players, if any emerge)
went mid-price in rucks because all premos are going to fall, based on Higgo's analysis. Look to trade up when their price falls. (Wanted Nic Nat, but now scared by his injury status)
could have had Swallow or Crouch plus rook instead of J Martin and Wallis (which would fit the rule of no mid-pricers in the guts), but they are the 2 players I am really pinning my hopes on for 2015, so put them both in

welcome some comments


how much left in the till




you miss out on the rookie cash generation without getting more. think about how you can best earn money without burning trades

I like your Brave enough to go POD Tyson and Greene
Pretty sure birchill is injured

The Minotaur

Thanks Glenn, I think they both make a good POD from Wines and Crouch. If Birchall is out for R1 then Brodie Smith will get the nod with my spare $$$.


Birchall is out injured, but like the Def structure.

109.9k left to spend
would love some opinions, thanks


Maybe change Hiigns and Lever for 2X 380k Defs that you think might become premo. Would be consistent with the structure you have adopted for the rest of your team


I would keep Higgins and move Hugh Goddard to the forward line, to open up the Def/Fwd swing with Higgins. May save you trades later on.

A saint in geelong

jimmy I really like the structure. You have gone the F4 premium with 200k M6. Very valid move. Beware of the early geary, I can tell you as a saints fan the high scores wont last. Enright gives your backline a nice steady hand. Question I have for you in your mids is will your M2 to m5 be in the top 15 mids. Great use of players with great draws (Sidebottom, priddis).
Mitchell is a risk, monitor closely.


i barrack 4 saint too


your top 3 mids all out in Rd 12 bye. Otherwise extremely solid team


yeah i know, sucks


Hey community, I would love some feedback on my team, i think its fairly solid and only 2-3 players could be worked on! Also I have 72,900k left in the kitty

Not enough spend in the midfield I reckon you need one more keeper. You could downgrade Adams and then upgrade Langford. Otherwise solid team.


I reckon wait on Rocky. Thats his ceiling i think. get him at rn1 bye


Although not in my team, I think Langford is being overlooked this year, Won't be a T10 mid but I could see him definitely increasing that average significantly.


DEF: Shaw, Hibberd, Newnes, Ibbotson, H. Goddard, Viojo-Rainbow (D. McKenzie, Adam Saad)

I have $300,700 left in the bank, with an eye to making more changes. Probably upgrading one of either Swallow or Griffen (which one?). I will change one of my mid rookies to Jed Anderson, not sure which one yet though. Jarryn Geary on the watchlist, may replace Ibbotson. Thoughts community?


I think Swallow has the lower ceiling. Or you can go from Rich straight to a premo for 3/3/2 structure


Get Goldy into your rucks department. Leuy has burnt people in the past and will do so this year again

Attack of the midpricers. I think your backs will make you a little money, but your going to have to burn so many trades come year end to get full premos as I don't see any of those (except maybe Newnes) being top 15 defenders at year end.

Same with Jong, he might make you a tiny amount of cash, I know hes attempting to step into Griffin's role, but I think hes too raw and there are other players around his price range who will score better.


if your strategy is to provide ruck cover ( a strategy I agree with!), I think you must have strong bench cover. With your forward line, the only way to bring Swan back down is if one of your selections spuds it up, or if you are looking to use Mitchell or Kelly as a stepping stone to a premo mid. If it is Kelly, maybe consider Rich and bring Swan back down.

Any suggestions on Improving my side? I want to start with 12 premiums however, limited rookies in defence, means I have to find value and sacrifice a few premiums so I can avoid the doughnut in defence. Bellchambers is only there for ruck insurance and to get read on the field for the captains loophole. My Forward line feels weak. Any suggestions?

posiibly short one premium mdi. perhaps choose one of McRae Hallahan and C Beams, upgrade one to a premo and downgrade the other to a rook


your thoughts will be much appreciated thx . .DEF: Shaw, Hibberd, Johnson, Whitecross, Lever, Goddard, (McKenzie, Maynard,)

Haven't seen too many sides with Will M. this year Duff, definite POD.


Your short a forward, so not really sure what to make of it.

Also I don't like Minson, he fell off bad last year and he got beat out by Hampson convincly in the first NAB cup game. I think there are plenty of other cheaper options who will add value to your side.

Keep your eyes on WhiteX, he may not make Hawks top 22.


four of your Top 5 mids all out in Rd 12 bye. Not sure 3 def rooks can deliver value


My team!
Malceski Shaw Newnes Whitcross
Goddard Maynard (Saad Vojo)

Ablett Pendles Selwood Gray
Swallow Rich Anderson Boekhurst
(Vandenberg Ellis-Yolmen Freeman)

Mummy Natanui (Read)

Deledio Ryder Swan Mitchell
Clarke Hogan (Steele Lambert)



personally I am not sure that any 3 rooks down back can deliver much, but I do see it in a lot of teams. Not sure that Anderson and Boekhurst are walk up starts in the best 22. Vest possibilities also. May leave your midfield weak.


Your team looks pretty good, I'm not sure on the three premo's down back with no other support, expecially if Whitecross doesn't make the team. You may have to drop a ruck or mid to compensate as I think there are definetely some mid price options down back that can slot into D4 for ya. Again tho, otherwise looking pretty solid.


Defense-Newnes, McDonald, Durdin, Macmillan, Geary,Kolodjashnij (Saad and Miles)
Midfield-Ablett, Dayne Beams, Douglas, Rich, Wines, Wallis, Lang, Anderson (Van Berlo, Heeney, Lambert)
Ruck-Lycett, Bellchambers (Nankervis)
Forward- Buddy, Robbie Gray, Bonti, Kelly GWS, Swan, Dustin Martin (Karnezis and Hogan)

Yes my backline needs alot of work, too many Nth Melb players and in a few weeks it will change. Wallis probably will tag but with new coach who knows.


Luke McDonald in backline


No offence mate but I think this is a bit of a shambles, I'm all for POD's but having 20 POD's often means your rekt.

I'd say your midfield is very shallow and needs more work, not enough elites through there. Having Lycett as ruck 1 could be a fantastic idea, but could be a flop also.

Your forward line is loaded which can be a strategy especially with the DPP's this year, but your paying for it across your other three lines.

Any advice on my team guys?, Hodge, Newnes, Ibbotson, Henderson, Whitecross (Goddard, saad)

Mumford, naitanui (naverskis)

Cheers guys


Team has some good traits in my opinion, looks very solid. I'm hesitant on Gray, I just think after his breakout year he may loom as a tag option, I want to see the first few rounds as I can't see him rising in price dramatically if at all through the first few before I may consider him. Also, I doubt very highly that Laverde gets a run at the Bombers. You might find Whitecross strugles to get a gig as well. But time will tell!!!


Love the ruck combo mate. Backup good idea though with their injury history. Backs, mids look solid, only comment would really be on starting Karnezis. That said, if he starts round 1 could be a steal!

Ultimae Wingman

Strong team John. Like Henderson and Wines ad POD. Some risk on Karnezis & Mitchell though. Have you considered D.Martin as F2?

Rookies will most likely be changed prior to round 1, but I'm happy with the rest for now.



Nice team not worth wasting around $90,000 by having De Goey on the bench, could use that money to upgrade Langdon. Might not be wise going three of the best elite premiums out on the same round either in the byes (Ablett, Pendlebury, Fyfe)

Hi Jock, Crouching, Higgo, Wayno etc.

Starting team as it stands. Guns & Rookies with multiple Swing sets.

Still unsure over Deledio v Dangerfield for M5…

R: Naitanui, Leuenberger (bench – T.Read)

HF:Gray, D.Martin, Swan, Bell-Chambers, M.Clark, Hogan (bench – Lambert, C.Byrne)


risky D3 to D6

Ultimae Wingman

Hi jimmy7
Valid comment re D3-6. Ibbotson & Whitecross worth the risk, with Goddard & Maynard on the bench. Considering Lever as D6 to repace Brown. Your thoughts also on Wines v Martin as M5?


LIds b4 Danger – gives u DPP …


Here is the current team.

DEF: Shaw H, Newnes J, Higgins S, Ibbotson G, Henderson R, Lever J (Goddard H, Saad A)
MID: Ablett G, Pendlebury S, Fyfe N, Crouch B, Swallow A, Rich D, van Berlo N, Cripps P (Freeman N, Steele J, Lambert K)
RUC: Naitanui N, Bellchambers T (Read T)
FWD: Deledio B, Goddard B, Swan D, Mitchell T, Clark M, Hogan J (Karnezis P, Krakouer N)

$22.2k in the kitty.

I know I've got a decent amount of mid pricers and a few roughies (cough Higgins), but overall I think this team is looking pretty good at the moment, a few fallen premiums, still good scores across all lines. Thoughts community?


Top 3 mids all out in Rd 12 bye. Very solid

Ultimate Wingman

Thx jimmy7. It’s a game full of risk!


Like your team, with the exception of Bellchambers as R2 (and without cover)

You have both Higgins & H.Goddard in defence, both are Def/Fwd swings. I would move H.Goddard to the forward-line to enable that swing capability, particularly as our defence and forward lines are very rookie reliant at the beginning of this season.


DEF: Burgoyne, Kelly, Newnes, Higgins, Ibbotson, Dick (Goddard, Saad)
MID: Ablett, Pendlebury, Selwood, Beams, Swallow, Van Berlo, Anderson, Boekhurst (Vandenberg, Freeman, Krakouer)

$58,400 rem.


pretty good.



Good team.

Not sure about Burgoyne, his a great player, but the Hawks are so even, and rarely have top scorers.

You could also open up the Def/Fwd swing by placing H.Goddard in the forward line to swing with Higgins as required.


Hello Supercoach Family. Please let me know what your thoughts are of my draft side so far:

Backs: Heath Shaw, Jack Newnes, Taylor Duryea, Jarryn Geary, Clancee Pearce and Jamie MacMillan (Bench: Harrison Wigg and Andrew Saad)

Midfield: Gary Ablett, Scott Pendlebury, Nat Fyfe, Joel Sewood, Matt Priddis, Nathan Van Berlo, Patrick Cripps and Jed Anderson (Bench: Boekhorst, Freeman and Lambert)

Rucks: Todd Goldstein and Matthew Leuenberger (Bench: Lucey)

Forwards: Robbie Gray, Dustin Martin, Dane Swan, Christian Salem, Mitch Clarke, Patrick Karnezis (Bench: Hogan and Krakouer)

Please let me know what you think?


Any suggestions for replacements would be helpful too


Top 3 mids all out in Rd 12 bye. very solid team


Thanks Keenbutclueless. Yeah that round 12 bye is a killer for most but I will worry about that when it comes


Good team, no major holes.

Only query is on Taylor Duryea, as a Hawthorn supporter i see him as between player 20-24 in our club, not always guaranteed a game, particularly when playing teams with big forward lines, and we stack the back with height & strength with Lake, Frawley, Straton, etc.


Thanks for the feedback Donavan. Might upgrade him to a langdon from collingwood then as he is their general down back

Ultimate Wingman

Any feedback appreciated


Here is my current team:

Burgoyne, Hibberd, Newnes, Whitecross, Clurey, Goddard (Kelly, Saad)

Ablett, Pendlebury, Beams, Parker, Greene, Crouch, Newton, Cripps (Anderson, Vanderburg, Freeman)

Maric, Bellchambers (Cox)

Martin, Dalhaus, Swan, Mitchell, Salem, Hogan (Steele, Lambert)

Couldn't go past Mr Consistent Burogyne in the backline, served me well last year. I have gone for youth this year with Greene, Parker, Dalhaus, Mitchell and Crough all showing great signs this pre season. My rookies aren't finalised yet. Thoughts community?


Hey Chenzo, not really worth having the whole starting midfield $200,000 and above. As much as Parker is a good player, you could downgrade him and upgrade Clurey into a premium defender


Don't mind Parker tbh. No one is really touching him, he may be priced high but has proved he can score well and consistently.

Hi everyone just wondering what your thoughts are on my team.

Backs: newnes, harbrow, simpson, whitecross, dick, jones (pearce, j kolodjashnij)

Mids: ablett, pendlebury, sloane, greene, j selwood, rich, cripps, anderson (vandenberg, dumont)

Rucks: leunenburger, naitanui (nankervis)

Forwards: goddard, deledio, swan, mitchell, bontempelli, clark (lambert, krakouer)


Seems pretty solid mate. Hopefully those rookies play. I've got a similar structure and relying on DEF rookies to play on field.


DEF: Simpson, Shaw, Newnes, Ibbotson, Z. Jones, H. Goddard (Manteit, Saad)
MID: Ablett, Pendles, Fyfe, Joelwood, Sloane, P. Cripps, J. Anderson, Freeman (Boekhorst, Vandenberg, Lambert)
RUC: Jacobs, Naitanui (Nankervis)
FWD: B. Goddard, Swan, T. Mitchell, Salem, Clark, Hogan (Karnezis, Daniel)


Would welcome feedback on my team, obviously flexible with use of rookies.

Backs:Enright, Murphy,Newnes, Langdon, Geary, Goddard (Rainbow, McKenzie)
Mids: Ablett, Pendles, Selwood, Wines, Swallow, NVB, Anderson, Heeney (Boekhurst, Vandenberg, Laverde)
Rucks: Goldt, Nic Nat (Read)
Fwds: Bartel, Dusty Martin, Swan, J Martin, Clark, Hogan (Karnesis, Daniel)


Hi Sean, might be wise to maybe swap Wines/Swallow/Selwood to someone that has the round 11 bye as there bye falls on the same round and you will get a few more points that week and there will be less hassles. Other than that, a good team


Hi everyone would love your thoughts

Defence: Shaw, Newnes, Geary, Macmillan, Whitecross, ROOKIE(Goddard, hamling) waiting for a rookie to appear!

Mid: Gary, Pendles, Rocky, Fyfe, Greene, Cripps, Vanberlow, Heeney(Freeman, Boekhurst, Krakour)

Ruck: Nic Nat, Leuy (Read)

Forwards: Gray, Deledio, Swan, Mitchell, Salem, Hogan (Steele, Lambert)


Hey Zac,

Outside of your defence, team looks quite good. But hey, defence has been like hell this pre season.

Not 100% sold on Turnover Tobe's as M5, but he can certainly find the pill….just needs to learn how to hit a target by foot. Maybe he can handball to Griffen all year.

2 x 200K rookies in the middle is interesting….may need to end up going with 1 x 200K, then another < 150K rook. Inject that extra coin down back if Whitecross doesn't cut the mustard.

Concerned about Leuenberger after this evening. Running with the same Ruck set up myself. I'm going to restructure my team without him now. I'd advise at looking at some alternative options and structures now.

Can't knock your forward line. Looks superb.


Gday all, here is my initial starting lineup,

Backs: L Hodge, J Kelly, J Newnes, S Mayes, J Lever, H Goddard, (Hamling, Maynard)

Midfield: G.Ablett, J Selwood, M Barlow, O. Wines, A Swallow, T. Mitchell, N Van Berlo, J Anderson, (Heeney,Mckenzie,Freeman)

– boekhorst

Goldy , nik Nat – read

Dusty , swanny , Motlop – krakour

Mitchell , hogon , Daniel. – lambert


Hey Jamie,

D1 to D4 looks good to me. Not sure on Buckley and Rohan, but it is early in the NAB. Though Rohan 5 disposals tonight is concerning. I'd look at replacing one of them with Clancee Pearce.

Get Goddard out of your mid field. Waste there. Upgrade him to a ultra premium, or to Griffen/Andy Swallow at a similar price.

Mid field looks a little skinny, and lacks Captain options too. Gaz, then nothing….can't consider Barlow a captain option. I'd be wanting Rockliff, Pendles or Fyfe in there.

I like the ballsy Jack Steven selection. After tonight's game, Heeney could be a possible starting option.

Rucks look good.

Forward also look good. Motlop selection, lovely!! He's on my short list of forwards (can't decide!!).


simpson, shaw, newnes, savage, edwards, schade (goddard, saad)

Obviously rookies will change depending on NAB & R1
I can downgrade hallahan to the likes of newton and upgrade a rookie in defence but only to someone like henderson, mcdonald etc
have about 2k left



Hey Scano,

D1 to D3 looks good. Didn't mind the Savage pick until he got injured. Could be worth swapping him for Clancee Pearce, and banking some coin at the same time. Not sure re D5 and D6…..have no idea who Schade is…..hopefully some rookies present themselves and you can start them in those positions. Edwards could be lock if Dons players get banned.

Like the JPK selection. Looked as though he hadn't missed a beat tonight. Not sure going in with both Crouch and Wines. I'd be inclined to upgrade one to an ultra premium. Looks too much spend at M7 and M8 for mine. Would only want to spend 350K on those two positions at max. Heeney looked good this evening for Sydney.

Commend the balls to select Bellchambers…..i couldn't do it without seeing him in NAB series. Especially with his injury riddled history.

Forwards look good. Knights could be a nice selection. Think he will deter quite a lot with his price tag. If stays sound could hit you 75-80.

I like your overall structure and I have the exact same ruck setup and very similar forward setup. I'm also keenly watching Rampe to see if he is going to take Ceski's spot.

Personally I'd avoid mid-priced midfielders like Rich, I don't think they pay off enough to be worth it (got burnt with all of mine last year) so this year I'm purely going guns and rookies. Also considering they's only 20k difference I'd try to swap out Martin for Lids, Lids is just way more consistent.


Shaw, Newnes,Langdon, Savage, Geary, WHitecross, Goddard, Maynard
Ablett, Treloar, Griffen, Crouch, Steven, Rich, van Berlo, Heeney,Gralett J, Vandenberg, Freeman
Nic Nat,Lycett, Cox
Bartel, Smith D, Swan, Mitchell, Beams C, Hogan, Salem, Lambert

Really happy with this prior to more NAB cup info and the last minute named on ground changes that will occur.
Critical comments readily seeked and accepted


Trying to fit Vandenberg in my side atm though so many good options. Savage is injured and there are so many better options than C. Beams


Bellchambers instead of C. Beams provides some Ruck coverage


Thx Dean good point


This is the team i have now, could very much change before the start of the season though

Backs: N. Malceski, K.Simpson, L.Hodge, D. Rampe, C. Pearce, H.Goddard (B. Whitecross A. Saad)
Midfield: G. Ablett, B. Deledio, O.Wines, D.Tyson, D.Swan, T.Mitchell, N.Van Berlo, B. Boekhurst (J. Laverde, N Freeman, N. Krakouer
Rucks: P. Ryder, M. Leuenberger (M. Cox)
Forwards: R. Gray J. Bartel, M.Walters, J. Cameron, T. Membery, M. Clark (J. Hogan, K,Lambert)

i have $11,700 left in the cap, but i am looking at downgrading one or two from my back/midfield line and upgrading one or two from ruck/forward line


UPDATE: have taken out hodge for newnes and leunberger for zac smith


beware Zac smith, will be sharing rucking duties with nicholls all season. can't see either of them going big because of this. Personally i'd have the likes of swan, deledio and mitchell in my forwards as there are plenty of good options on offer in the mids.


Def, Simpson, newnes, adcock, Langdon, Goddard, Edwards. Manboob, saad

Mids, ablett, pendles, JPK , wines, Griffey, Newton, Anderson, boekhurst, Vandenburg, freeman, lambert

Ruck, goldy, Nic Nat , Read.

Fwd, bartel, dusty, swan, titch, Salem, karnezis, Daniel, Krakouer

Have $190k in the kitty. If I can field 4 rookies in the def I will use the cash to upgrade Adcock and Langdon to maybe hibberd and kelly , otherwise use the cash to field a deeper def , drop Langdon to clancee and upgrade the on field rookies to jakcsh /Henderson / Buckley/ Rohan …..whoever looking the best after nab


Feedback would be much appreciated. 🙂

B) Burgoyne, Rance, newnes,

S.edwards, j.hambling, h.goddard

R) Jacobs, Goldstein

F) Gray, lids, Bartel,

j.kennedy, Salem, hogan


I like your rucks, not too many teams have 2 premos, could be an advantage.


Hey Benjamin,

Your side is quite different to the majority…..i actually don't mind it…..if Rance could be upgraded to say a Hodge, Shaw, Hibberd…even more so!

Balance in the midfield is good. 4 proven, 1 who gets every chance to take his game even further with Liberatore out, and three starting rooks.

Gun, Gun Rucks.

That forward line is good!!! Keep JJK under the hat though (sshhhh) …..he'll explode early.

With the exception of Rance, and lets hope the def rooks play…good team mate. Nice balance of provens and some very nice uniques. Good work!!


I’ve upgraded newnes to shaw and kept Rance, Rance is a spoiling machine and can rank up the disposals. Downgraded beams to lachie Neale coz there’s to many Brisbane midfielders and they’ll all hog the ball from each other, and I took Salem out and put karneziz in. Looks a lot better. Still not keen on hambling but we’ll see

Mate, I'd love to pick Duncan but my balls are far too small. I'm a massive fan of his and reckon he'll explode. Not sold on Minson however. I'm tending towards Maric at this early stage.


Might be a biased pick, I’m a Cats fan

My Team currently:

Defence: Hibberd, Newnes, Higgins, Langdon, Kolodjashnij, Henderson (Goddard, Saad)
Midfield: Ablett, Beams, Danger, Jack, Wines, Griffen, Rich, Heeney (Vandenburg, Laverde, Freeman)
Ruck: Naitanui, Leuenberger (Read)
Forward: D Martin, Swan, J Martin, Salem, Clark, Hogan (Steele, Lambert)

I think i'm far to weak up forward
Would it be best to downgrade rich into a rookie and upgrade clark into mitchell.


look at the draw of your mid premiums and see who you could pick up in the bye rounds and invest that money in the fwd upgrading clark to a premium.


Def: Shaw, Newnes, Mayes, Ibbo, Rohan, Lever (Dick, Goddard)
Mid: gaz, Pendles, Fyfe, Danger, Griff, Swallow, Anderson, Boekhorst (Vandenberg, Atkins, Freeman)
Ruc: Sauce, Nic Nat (Nankervis)
Fwd: Lids, Swan, Mitchell, Clarke, Salem, Hogan (Daniel, Lambert)

Ok community, what are your thoughts on a Motlop vs T. Mitchell as F4? I currently have Gray, Deledio and Swan making up my top 3. Thanks in advance you legends.
