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

    PJ8 · 05/03/2015 at 16:50

    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.

      DSDS · 05/03/2015 at 16:54

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

        PJ8 · 05/03/2015 at 16:58

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

    @Da_Mad_Irishman · 05/03/2015 at 16:56

    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 · 05/03/2015 at 19:01

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

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 · 05/03/2015 at 16:52

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

      PJ8 · 05/03/2015 at 16:57

      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.

        TheLiamNeesons · 05/03/2015 at 17:53

        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.

    @Da_Mad_Irishman · 05/03/2015 at 17:02

    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

      PJ8 · 05/03/2015 at 17:07

      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

    Alister14 · 05/03/2015 at 21:45

    Nice team

    fatboyfat7 · 06/03/2015 at 10:10

    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….

      PJ8 · 07/03/2015 at 10:36

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

James · 05/03/2015 at 16:46

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)

    James · 05/03/2015 at 16:47

    *how to improve it not how to improvement

    @Da_Mad_Irishman · 05/03/2015 at 17:07

    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 · 05/03/2015 at 18:47

    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!!)

Aaron · 05/03/2015 at 16:47

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)

    @Da_Mad_Irishman · 05/03/2015 at 17:16


    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

      Aaron · 05/03/2015 at 20:54

      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!

    PJ8 · 05/03/2015 at 17:03

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

    @Da_Mad_Irishman · 05/03/2015 at 17:23


    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

    Matthew · 05/03/2015 at 17:37

    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.

      PreviouslyOnLost · 05/03/2015 at 22:30

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

Ryan · 05/03/2015 at 16:53

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?

    vcloophole · 05/03/2015 at 17:01

    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.

      Ryan · 05/03/2015 at 17:03

      How do I fix that up VC?

        vcloophole · 05/03/2015 at 17:07

        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.

    vcloophole · 05/03/2015 at 17:09

    Damo, don't count on Whitecross playing early unfortunately

      DamonG · 05/03/2015 at 17:12

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

        vcloophole · 05/03/2015 at 18:05

        Walters to either Hogan or Mitch Clark..

          DamonG · 05/03/2015 at 18:20

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

            vcloophole · 05/03/2015 at 18:30

            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

              DamonG · 05/03/2015 at 18:47

              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!

                vcloophole · 06/03/2015 at 15:07

                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!

    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!

    Love the Adcock pick, currently in my team.

      King Menace · 05/03/2015 at 17:11

      Is Adcock worth a go?

    @RagingBulls34 · 05/03/2015 at 17:12

    Where's your 8th defender?

    I N Pieman · 05/03/2015 at 17:36

    Maggie. How did you fit all those into the salary cap. Or is that why your missing a defender. If the numbers add up your onto something big.

      maggie · 06/03/2015 at 15:02

      oops,i forgot to add a defender ,reshuffled the rookie mids took out bokhurst and cockatoo for heeney and vandenberg and added mckenzie to the backline

    Rawkus11 · 05/03/2015 at 20:00

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

Bacon · 05/03/2015 at 17:08

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

    PJ8 · 05/03/2015 at 17:19

    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!

      vcloophole · 05/03/2015 at 17:41

      I plan on doing exactly the same PJ8

        PJ8 · 06/03/2015 at 08:24

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

    vcloophole · 05/03/2015 at 17:29

    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

      Bacon · 05/03/2015 at 17:54

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

        Hazey1977 · 05/03/2015 at 19:05

        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.

          Northerner · 05/03/2015 at 21:37

          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.

            t_woof · 07/03/2015 at 02:03

            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 · 08/03/2015 at 02:45

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

      Escape · 24/03/2015 at 23:02

      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….

        vcloophole · 25/03/2015 at 12:04

        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?

NateCrows · 05/03/2015 at 17:11

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 · 05/03/2015 at 17:41

    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.

      NateCrows · 05/03/2015 at 19:09

      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)


        Donavan · 05/03/2015 at 21:34

        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.

    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

jesseSPANNER · 05/03/2015 at 17:12

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)


    keenbutclueless · 05/03/2015 at 18:19

    Moore is out injured for a while

@Da_Mad_Irishman · 05/03/2015 at 17:14


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

HFerg · 05/03/2015 at 17:15

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…

    keenbutclueless · 05/03/2015 at 18:23

    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

@emhoy · 05/03/2015 at 17:18

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 · 05/03/2015 at 17:42

    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

      @emhoy · 05/03/2015 at 18:09

      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 · 05/03/2015 at 17:18

    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

    a lot of mid pricers to bargain on

      bennnno · 06/03/2015 at 17:07

      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 πŸ™‚ also rookies too..

    I N Pieman · 05/03/2015 at 17:55

    The cost associated with your first 4 defenders would make you want them to finish in the top 10. One of them will I’m sure. Maybe 2-3. But not all of them will. Over capitalisation IMO. Other than that your team looks pretty good to me. If you chopped some cost in defence you could make your other & more important lines even better.

    keenbutclueless · 05/03/2015 at 18:28

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

Any feedback welcome

    I N Pieman · 05/03/2015 at 18:04

    Begin with the end in mind Deso. I can’t see enough players here you’d want to have in round 23. And that means you’ll run out of trades quickly. 2 premo mids is not enough. Have a look though the other teams posted Deso & you’ll see a pattern. 4-6 very strong mids is a minimum requirement.

    keenbutclueless · 05/03/2015 at 18:33

    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

    t_woof · 07/03/2015 at 02:12

    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.

Killender · 05/03/2015 at 17:21

DEFENCE – Malceski, Shaw, Newnes, Seedsman, McMillan, Whitecross

    keenbutclueless · 05/03/2015 at 18:36

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

    General Soreness · 18/03/2015 at 17:05

    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.

TheLiamNeesons · 05/03/2015 at 17:22

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.

    keenbutclueless · 05/03/2015 at 17:31

    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?

      TheLiamNeesons · 05/03/2015 at 18:30

      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!

keenbutclueless · 05/03/2015 at 17:23

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

    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

    Donavan · 05/03/2015 at 22:13

    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.

    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.

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

      fatboyfat7 · 08/03/2015 at 12:12

      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.

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?

      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.

    keenbutclueless · 05/03/2015 at 18:03

    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?

    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.

    keenbutclueless · 05/03/2015 at 18:51

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

Jarryd · 05/03/2015 at 17:42

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)


    keenbutclueless · 05/03/2015 at 17:56

    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.

    Avzmo · 05/03/2015 at 18:04

    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.

Travis · 05/03/2015 at 17:44

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.

    Travis · 05/03/2015 at 17:46

    Luke McDonald in backline

    Avzmo · 05/03/2015 at 18:00

    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.

John Stuart · 05/03/2015 at 17:48

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

Ablett, Pendlebury, Selwood, Wines, Swallow, van berlo, Laverde, Freeman (Heeney, boekhorst, vanderberg)

Mumford, naitanui (naverskis)

gray, Swan, Mitchell, Bellchambers, Salem, Karnezis (Daniel, krakouer)

Cheers guys

    Avzmo · 05/03/2015 at 17:56

    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!!!

    JoeWoolcock · 05/03/2015 at 17:59

    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 · 06/03/2015 at 11:25

    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.


    Danners16 · 05/03/2015 at 20:50

    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)

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

Still unsure over Deledio v Dangerfield for M5…

      Ultimae Wingman · 06/03/2015 at 11:19

      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?

    Roscoe · 06/03/2015 at 17:53

    LIds b4 Danger – gives u DPP …

Avzmo · 05/03/2015 at 17:54

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?

    keenbutclueless · 05/03/2015 at 19:15

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

      Ultimate Wingman · 05/03/2015 at 20:53

      Thx jimmy7. It’s a game full of risk!

    Donavan · 05/03/2015 at 22:42

    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.

Davo · 05/03/2015 at 17:57

DEF: Burgoyne, Kelly, Newnes, Higgins, Ibbotson, Dick (Goddard, Saad)
MID: Ablett, Pendlebury, Selwood, Beams, Swallow, Van Berlo, Anderson, Boekhurst (Vandenberg, Freeman, Krakouer)
RUC: Maric, Naitanui (Cox)
FWD: Bartel, Goddard, Swan, Salem, Clark, Karnezis (Hogan, Lambert)

$58,400 rem.

    MarcoPolo · 05/03/2015 at 21:59

    pretty good.

    Donavan · 05/03/2015 at 22:48


    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.

Jack · 05/03/2015 at 17:58

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?

    Jack · 05/03/2015 at 17:58

    Any suggestions for replacements would be helpful too

    keenbutclueless · 05/03/2015 at 19:17

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

      Jack · 06/03/2015 at 12:59

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

    Donavan · 05/03/2015 at 22:53

    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.

      Jack · 06/03/2015 at 12:59

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

Ultimate Wingman · 05/03/2015 at 18:21

Any feedback appreciated

Chenzo_89_ · 05/03/2015 at 18:22

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?

    Danners16 · 05/03/2015 at 20:52

    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

    MarcoPolo · 05/03/2015 at 21:57

    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.

Jaiden Greenfield · 05/03/2015 at 18:24

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

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

    PreviouslyOnLost · 05/03/2015 at 22:33

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

    Danners16 · 05/03/2015 at 20:56

    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

Zac · 05/03/2015 at 18:33

Hi everyone would love your thoughts

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

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

    t_woof · 07/03/2015 at 02:34

    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.

Pitch · 05/03/2015 at 18:37

Gday all, here is my initial starting lineup,

Simpson , Hibberd , newnes – Goddard

Ibbo , Buckley , rohon – dick

Ablett , Barlow , Goddard, wines -brayshaw

Steven , van berlo , Biggs , Jed Anderson. – heeney

– boekhorst

Goldy , nik Nat – read

Dusty , swanny , Motlop – krakour

Mitchell , hogon , Daniel. – lambert

    t_woof · 07/03/2015 at 02:43

    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!!).

scano · 05/03/2015 at 18:54

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

deledio, martin, swan, knights, salem, hogan (steele, krakouer)

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


    t_woof · 07/03/2015 at 02:51

    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.

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?

    Jimi · 05/03/2015 at 20:34

    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.

      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.

    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!!

      Benjamin · 07/03/2015 at 19:19

      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.

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

    Dean · 05/03/2015 at 19:22

    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.

Jimmy Joe · 05/03/2015 at 19:59

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.

    Danners16 · 05/03/2015 at 20:43


    Scott · 05/03/2015 at 20:55

    I like them both but would go Mitchell, I think he will have a breakout season this year.
    I also had Delidio but took him out when I heard he was carrying a sore achillies, something to keep an eye on.

    t_woof · 07/03/2015 at 03:06

    Very tough question Jimmy. I have both on my short list of forwards……..i still haven't decided either yet mate.

    I do think Motlop has the "ability/potential" to go a fraction higher than Tom Mitchell…..but yeah, splitting hairs.

    t_mitch · 07/03/2015 at 10:05

    i dont like either, i have j.martin personally, alot like bellchambers there even though we wont get to see him untill round one at the earliest, ive also considered 3 onfield rookies which i dont think is a bad thing either depending on what structure you want/have

Def: Risky I know, many of those picks are still pending NAB form, I just took Wombat's advice and picked a backline that could potentially score 470 per week, and earn a little coin, until the premo defenders are settled and I can trade them in.
Mids: Just a straight up guns and rookies stet up.
Rucks: Should be set and forget (famous last words).
Fwds: Pretty happy with the balance there at this stage.

    t_woof · 07/03/2015 at 03:11

    Hey Damon,

    I think Smith is too expensive for a defender off the back of one season. Do like D2 to D4. Whitecross, lets hope he surfaces sooner rather than later.

    Midfield looks good, and runs deep. Wasn't sold on Boekhorst and Freeman after NAB 1…..monitor them closely in NAB 2.

    Ballsy selection with Bellchambers considering we won't get to see him in the NAB Series. Has an injury riddled history. Quite the risk for mine.

    Forward line looks really good. Bontempelli at F4, like it!!

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

    Avzmo · 05/03/2015 at 22:25

    Hallahan is to awkwardly priced for me. I think you've picked it right to trade him down and pick up hendo in defence or something. I can see Hendo being top 20 in defence this year, a lot more then i can see hallahan doing it. Are you putting him in your team to keep him? If so very interesting POD. If not I think you can get better value for money and more cash generation elsewhere.

      tom · 06/03/2015 at 08:59

      Yeah I think youre right with a lot of that Avzmo. I was going to use Hallahan as a stepping stone player but good point about value.
      Thanks for the help mate!

    Jimmy Joe · 05/03/2015 at 21:48

    Bont at Fwd 3 seems a bit risky. I'd forgive at Fwd 4 though. I kind of feel like a Tom Mitchell or even a Motlop might assist your FWD line. Duffield might be injured so keep an eye on that. I like your mids, especially the Lewis pick. Not sold on Leuy I'm afraid. Good luck!

      Avzmo · 05/03/2015 at 22:22

      Second Jimmy Joe on this one. Your forward line isn't strong enough, especially with so many options this year.

      Also keep your eyes on a replacement for WhiteX cos I don't think he'll make the 22.

jimmy7 · 05/03/2015 at 21:29

hey to everyone just some pivital decisions:
Shaw or jaench
savage or geary or mcdonald
sandy or goldy
keen for anyone interested to help?!

    Jimmy Joe · 05/03/2015 at 21:44

    I have Shaw.
    I'd take Savage (if his injury isn't too bad).

    Avzmo · 05/03/2015 at 22:21

    I'm not sure why you are attached to these particular players, as there seem to be better players around the same price. But I'll play the game…

    Shaw, Savage, Goldy.

      jimmy7 · 05/03/2015 at 23:10

      who else??

    @t_woof · 07/03/2015 at 03:21


    Savage has got injured, so rules him out. I'd have to say Geary out of those three. McDonald will be a player, but 70's will see him out in 2015.

    Splitting hairs, both valid selections…..Smallest of leans to Goldstein in the durability department.

Will · 05/03/2015 at 21:32

Is McCartin worth looking at if he has a solid pre season? or is he awkwardly priced

    Avzmo · 05/03/2015 at 22:20

    Awkwardly priced, so many other cheaper options around.

    PJ8 · 06/03/2015 at 08:18

    NO! Horrible price and KPP

@Seekersupacoach · 05/03/2015 at 21:33

My first ever post in the community, anyway…

Ruck: Naitanui, Bellchambers (Read T)

Fwd: Gray R, Deludio, Swan, Mitchell, Hogan, Salem (Steele, Lambert)

I know that my defence is crawling with rookies and I'll have to downgrade my mids to get in some defensive strength. I'm also not sure who to replace Bellchambers with if and when ASADA takes affect.

    Jimmy Joe · 05/03/2015 at 21:46

    I quite like this team mate, but I can't help but think you've over spent in the guts. I know most of us are going lighter in defence but if I was to make a suggestion it'd be to beef up the likes of Whitecross, or if you want to keep him, upgrade a rookie. You may have to find your cash from the mids so perhaps downgrading Rich to a rook or or choosing one of Griff or Swallow to downgrade to a Cripps or Biggs might allow you to add a bit more certainty back in defence. Just my two cents. Good luck mate.

    jimmy7 · 05/03/2015 at 21:50

    not to bad. other ways to get money into the backline is by taking gray down to a goddard or someone, unless your real keen on him cause his a beast, also rich could be changed with Van berlo or a rookie, that's all i've got?

    Avzmo · 05/03/2015 at 22:19

    I can see what your going for. Your midfield will get lots of points early. You Beaut!!!

    However, you have no cash generation in that side, there are very few rookies with massive potential to upgrade your side, and you will pay for it from the bye rounds onwards. You have to think about running 5 or so <250k players in the midfield so that you can generate some good money.

    By sacrificing Griffen or Swallow as well as Rich or Hallahan, you can make back around 400k. You can use that to get two midpricers in defence or one premo, either way…. future you will thank you for it.

    @Seekersupacoach · 06/03/2015 at 00:06

    I've taken your advices. I've removed Swallow and Hallahan brought in Sexton and Newton in the mids, C Pearce and MacMillan in the backline for starters. Might also lose Griffen and maybe T Mitchell

      fatboyfat7 · 08/03/2015 at 12:41

      After those changes our teams are extremely similar. I'm keeping TM though but have been weighing up swapping Griffen for J Steven

    Swap Cox to Read on your Ruck bench. More loophole options as Read has more late weekend games.

      Okay, thanks for the help

    Avzmo · 05/03/2015 at 22:15

    Laverde won't get a run in my opinion. Move Lambert or Krakeour down for another mid rookie.

Hi fellow supercoaches
Here is my team, got $21,000 left in the bank
DEF: B.Smith, M.Hibberd, J.Newnes, G.Ibbo, B.Whitecross, H.Goddard (Rainbow, McKenzie)
MID: G.Ablett, S.Pendlebury, N.Fyfe, P.Danger, O.Wines, J.Steven, B.Boekhorst, N.Freeman (Laverde, Steele, Lambert)
RUC: Nic Nat, Bellchambers (Cox)
FOR: Deledio, Bartel, Swan, Bontempelli, Salem, Hogan (Daniel, Krakouer)

thinking of upgrading Whitecross because not 100% sure if he will play. but love all my players and dont know who to cut. thinking either Wines or Steven but strongly beleive bothe will average over 95. also Bontempelli will spend alot more time in midfield now that Libba has gone down.
what are your thoughts? please comment

    keenbutclueless · 06/03/2015 at 19:30

    Your top 3 mids are all out in Rd 12 bye. Whitecross is a bit of an unknown atm. Is he playing or not? no NAB appearances so far is concerning. I am less convinced on Steven because of his interrupted pre-season. Love the Bont selection. Risk in the rucks with 2 injury prone guys with no cover. Comes off, will be a mater-stroke

OUS · 05/03/2015 at 22:08

Def: Jaensch, Newnes, R Shaw, Lumumba, Henderson Whitecross (Lever, Goddard)

Forwards: Swan, Mitchell, Thomas, Taylor, Clark, Hogan (Membrey, Krakouer)

Huge call on Judd I know, hoping Steven and Swallow step up.
Stacked with midpricers still thinking of going premium forward / midfield structure with a skinny defence.

    PreviouslyOnLost · 05/03/2015 at 22:41

    Massive call on Judd. Hope it pays off! Lot of risk with Swallow, Steven, Judd and Biggs. Only a suggestion, but maybe down grade one to a rookie and upgrade one to an ultra premium in Fyfe, Rockliff etc?

      OUS · 05/03/2015 at 23:49

      Maybe Priddis? Don't want to be over exposed at bye rounds.

    pauly walnuts · 06/03/2015 at 10:13

    OUS – Are you a Carlton supporter ? Judd & Thomas ?? Hope they work for you could be a huge POD

      OUS · 06/03/2015 at 17:00

      Lions supporter man, if these two deliver 95+ I will be a rich man.

    Matthew · 17/03/2015 at 12:55

    you are so fkn dumb, what a shithouse team

      tommykmoore · 17/03/2015 at 14:23

      Matthew your comment add's no value whatsoever to this discussion and its not what this community is about!! check yourself!!

      OUS – this year especially teams will need to have some POD's, however; you may have selected 3 – 5 too many. Look to find replacements for Shaw, Thomas, Judd or Steven (think you should only pick one of these guys) and Taylor, Lumamba or Hendo.

      just my thoughts!

    James · 18/03/2015 at 14:15

    OUS firstly love the clackers on you to go such a different team although I believe it may be too optimistic. Juddy is a gun although I think he may only play around 10-15 games this year big call but at his age and history you don't just lose those injuries and niggles in one good pre season. I like Steven he could easily average 100+ this year Swallow is a gun but I think if you don't want him at years end dont take the punt.

    Bellchambers another huge risk and for me Nic Nat looking like more of a risk every day. Much to think about pal and surely you have to agree that you can't go into round 1 with that many risks

Rich · 05/03/2015 at 22:17

DEF: Brodie Smith, Hibberd, Newnes, Clancee Pearce, Gary Rohan, Goddard (Maynard, Saad)

    Top 3 mids all out in Rd 12 bye. Don't mind the Rohan selection, controversial and a gamble, but could pay off. Maybe reconsider if he doesn't get the Malceski role.

      keenbutclueless · 06/03/2015 at 21:31

      can I take that back after he has spudded it up big time in the NAB Cup game! Get him out, if you haven't already

        Rich · 07/03/2015 at 10:28

        Haha already out, traded to Vlastuin

Cyril is Delicious · 05/03/2015 at 22:20

Would love any thought on my team, cheers community!

DEF: Shaw, Kelly, Newnes, Henderson, Edwards, H.Goddard (Vijo, Maynard)

RUCKS: Nic Nat, Leuy (Read)

FWDS: B.Goddard, Martin, Swan, T.Mitchell, Salem, Hogan (Laverde, Daniel)

Also have $38,300 in the bank. Would love any thoughts, ideas, or opinions. Cheers community!

    keenbutclueless · 06/03/2015 at 19:33

    Huge midfield – a real jaw-dropper. Envious man. Top 3 cop the rd 12 bye, but I guess Selwood and Sloane make up for that a bit.

Trent · 05/03/2015 at 22:21

Here is my team so far with $9,700 to spare

DEF- M.Hibberd, M.Jaensch, J.Newnes, D.Rampe, G.Ibbotson, H.Goddard, Bench- B.Whitecross, D,Voijo-Rainbow

MID- S.Pendlebury, P.Dangerfield, O.Wines, R.Griffen, A.Swallow, J.Steven, N.van Berlo, N.Freeman, Bench- J.Anderson, I.Heeney, B.Boekhorst

    keenbutclueless · 06/03/2015 at 19:35

    For a team with no Ablett thought you would run deeper in the midfield. Surprised you have so little cash leftover

MarcoPolo · 05/03/2015 at 22:22

Backs: Shaw, Newnes, Langdon, Pearce, Kolodjashnij, Goddard (Hamling, Saad)

112 k in the bank. Trying to factor in the bye rounds and when and who i want to trade…. am i over-complicating this?

    keenbutclueless · 06/03/2015 at 19:38

    solid team. Sexton a POD. Risk on the 2 rooks in defence

PreviouslyOnLost · 05/03/2015 at 22:39

Hey Community, current team is:
DEF: Hibberd, Newnes, Langdon, C Pearce, Whitecross, Goddard (Saad, Dick)
MID: Ablett, Rockliff, Pendlebury, Fyfe, Dangerfield, Macrae, Boekhorst, Laverde (Anderson, Freeman, Krakouer)
RUCK: Naitanui, Bellchambers (McLaren)
FWD: Deledio, Martin D, Swan, Mitchell, Saad, Hogan, (Daniel, Lambert)

Obviously rookies will change and impact team, but aiming for similar structure. Would love to swap pearce or langdon for a rookie, but it seems unlikely. Ruck is the only line that is set in stone (barring rookie). Players that have been constantly in and out my team include:
Def – Shaw
MId -Beams/Greene/Wines/Crouch
Fwd -Goddard

No Mitch Clark. No Mid price mids

    fatboyfat7 · 06/03/2015 at 10:23

    I'd say Macrae could be better on but otherwise I like it.Saad up forward though? I'd hold back for a better look, he's been out awhile…

      PreviouslyOnLost · 06/03/2015 at 14:58

      Cheers for the feedback. I think Saad is best 22 and will be wanting to cement himself with an 80-85 ave… but if other cheaper rookies look solid, I might change.

Fraser · 05/03/2015 at 22:50

Evening community,

Wondering who everyone is sold on rookies wise? Who are you 100% on in that <$200K bracket? Who is looking the goods to start the 2015 season in your side? Goddard, Freeman, Daniel, Edwards? Who is it for you?

    PJ8 · 06/03/2015 at 08:04

    Goddard should play, named for NAB 2 so will be good to have a look at him. Currently in my team.

    Freeman should be a lock, battled a little NAB 1 but sure he will be fine. In my team.

    Daniel wasn't named NAB 1 in a very young WB squad which is a worry. Not in my team.

    Edwards could be great depending on ASADA result. Not sure if he will play if they are all cleared. Not in my team.

    Others I currently have are:
    Hamling, Boekhurst, Krackour, Steele, Hogan, Clark.
    Saad (GC), Vandenberg and Lambert, all need to be elevated but looked the goods NAB 1

Mitch · 05/03/2015 at 23:16

    Birchall is out injured.

    keenbutclueless · 06/03/2015 at 19:40

    Birchall is injured. Not sold on Smedts – monitor his NAB form. C Beams also draws mixed opinion in the SC community!

Sam CIARAVOLO · 05/03/2015 at 23:18

Think Treloar will be a POD starting (finished 2014 strongly).

Like other teams, C.pearce had been on my priority watch list, and after tonight think he has to become almost a lock consideringhis price, dockers injuries, as well as the lack of backline rookie options this year.

      keenbutclueless · 06/03/2015 at 19:01

      actually I like it. I can accept the logic that there are no standout def premiums or def rookies, so a mid=price strategy is justified. Might just prove to be a winning mind-set this year

        Mick · 07/03/2015 at 21:01

    consider moving H Goddard to def. Reckon he's a better chance at playing than Saad. Then consider Krakour or Lambert for the fwd line. looks good!

fatboyfat7 · 06/03/2015 at 10:21

Only 2nd year playing and to be honest last year I was pretty clueless on strategy. Considered it my practice run for this year. Hopefully can give it a better crack…

Def: B Smith, Newnes, Pearce, Whitecross, MacMillan, Z Jones (Hamling, Saad)

Mids: Ablett, Pendles, Fyfe, Crouch, Newton, Cripps, Anderson, Freeman, (Vandenberg, I. Heeney, K. Lambert)

Rucks: Goldy, Berger (Read)

Forwards: Swan, Bartel, Deledio, Martin, T. Mitchell, J. Hogan (M. Clark, J Steele)

$321,800 left over at present. Still monitoring rookies.

My concern really is over my structure. I feel I'm not really falling into one catagory. Front line is pretty much loaded but the back line could probably use improvement.

Thoughts ?


    OUS · 06/03/2015 at 17:35

    Need to spend that $300,000 firstly, think you should get maybe a midpricer mid player such as Wines or Swallow or upgrade to a more solid d3

    keenbutclueless · 06/03/2015 at 18:49

    your top 3 mids all out in RD 12 bye. Consider upgrade a 200k rook to Crouch/Swallow

    fatboyfat7 · 07/03/2015 at 13:56

    Ok, thanks for the comments. Will toss up between Wines or Swallow I think…

John · 06/03/2015 at 10:31

hey guys here is my team, just after some advice on where i could improve?

Def: Simpson, Shaw, Newnes, Langdon, Edwards, Goddard (Saad, McKenzie)

Mid: Ablett, Pendlebury, Selwood, Beams, Kennedy, Van Berlo, Heeney, Vandenberg (Boekhurst, Freeman, Krakouer)

Ruck: Naitinui, Luenberger (Read)

Fwd: Goddard, Martin, Swan, Mitchell, Salem, Hogan (Clark, Lambert)

Some rookies likely to change but the core is pretty settled.
I have 91k left, just wondering where i should use it?
im looking at either defence or ruck because of luenberger and the lack of defencive options?
advice would be much appreciated!

    keenbutclueless · 06/03/2015 at 18:48

    looks strong. Your rucks are both a little injury prone and you don't have cover. Many teams are punting on no cover – understandably. Maybe you could consider downgrading Beams or Kennedy to a Griffen/Wines and use the cash to upgrade Salem to TBC? just a suggestion.

      John · 08/03/2015 at 07:26

      Thanks for that mate, yeah rucks are my only kind of worry at the moment.
      Didn’t think of the salem up grade gives another way of looking at things!
      Bit to think about now lol

    keenbutclueless · 06/03/2015 at 18:43

    like the Ryder/Lycett cover. not seen too often. Maybe one premium midfielder short. Consider only having 1 200k rook in the middle and upgrade either Griffen or Wines to a super-premium. (Unless you are absolutely convinced both will be top 10 by year end)

    probably needs one more super-premium mid. question marks over Gray and Malceski at those prices for mine. Think keeping both is costing you the extra mid depth you need. maybe consider downgrading one of those to add to your mid.

Hey guys,

Here is the current version of my team, I am looking for any advice that you have about anything to do with my team. Rookies are subject to change.

    Hey Naughts,

    Smith is too expensive for a premium defender off the back of one good season. Prefer the likes of Hodge, Hibberd, Shaw in front of him.

    Rohan only had 5 disposals v Brisbane this evening…..concerning. Watch him closely to see if he can improve his output in NAB2.

    Midfield looks good. Plenty of people drinking wine this season.

    Rucks also look good.

    Forward line also. F1 to F3 provens. Then hopefully enough rooks to fill F4-F6. Hogan is a definite lock.

    personally I think Rich is F6 or F7, but not F4. Reckon F4 and F5 can only be one trade from a super-premo, or one that you think will be a premo. Not sure how you get to Griffin/Wines type here. 2 x 200k rooks – maybe downgrade one of them and start Boekhurst.

    just not sure about Whitecross and VJ in the defence. Not sure either will play

    @t_woof · 07/03/2015 at 03:40

    Hey Seb,

    Perhaps a touch too much spend across D1 to D3 has exposed D5 & D6?

    I'd look at downgrading one of Simpson or Smith (I'd go Smith) to a Ibbotson or Clancee Pearce. Then injecting some cash into D5, therefore only exposing one rookie defender at D6. Rookie defenders are looking thin.

    At the moment, i do like the defensive set up of: Premium/Premium/Newnes/Ibbotson/Pearce/Rookie.

    Remainder of your team is looking good!! Couple unique's in Murphy & Nicholls…..always got to have a couple of unique's to separate your team from the masses.

    Good work mate!!

    with your mids – JPK, Sidebottom and Priddis are consistent, but all rarely deliver a massive score. This means GAJ is always your captain, and you probably wont be able to exploit the captains loophole as often.

    not sure on Taylor Adams – maybe Greenwood has that spot in the Collingwood lineup for now. Maybe drop him for a rook (reckon there are better choices in the fwd line than the backline), and upgrade one of your rooks in defence

I really don't trust the rookie defenders, especially now that Whitecross and D.McKenzie haven't got a game. So I've gone for a really strong backline, and I reckon you can argue that all of the top 5 there will be top 10 defenders.
Although I have missed out on the forward premiums on offer, I feel the volume of quality forward rookies (I could comortably pick 2-3 more) means they have to be picked heavily IMO.
Other than this, I've gone for a fairly stock standard midfield and rucks.
What's the thoughts on this?

    keenbutclueless · 06/03/2015 at 18:17

    if you are confident in the fwd rooks, then maybe it is better to have one more there rather than 2 x 200k rooks in the middle. Take Mtchell out of the fwd line, and upgrade to Crouch or Swallow

      @SeanySamp · 06/03/2015 at 20:12

      Alright I'll look into it. Cheers

Thoughts guys? All rookies suspect to NAB form… Structure seem okay? J.Martin the wild card in there… O'Meara to go bang with no more tendonitis issues and an actual training regime $$

    I’d say a bit light on for premium mids, I’d downgrade 1 or 2 of your 500k defenders to give you the cash to turn sidebottom or wines into Pendlebury or Selwood or Fyfe

The RoughNuts · 07/03/2015 at 00:19

Would appreciate feedback – Have decided to go a mid price strategy in back line, then Guns & Rookies across the other lines.

Backs – Hibberd, Newnes, Langdon, Pearce, Whitey, H Goddard, Edwards, Saad
Mids – Ablett, Pendles, Fyfe, Beams, T Greene, Wines, Heeney, D Lang, Anderson, Freeman, Boekhorst

Observations from the Show Us Your Team Thread…..

Plenty coaches wanting to drink the wine in 2015. Many more than i expected. Could be a POD by not drinking the wine.

Gas Chambers is still quite popular considering we won't get to see him in the NAB games, and he has an injury riddled history. If he scored points for his off field accolades, then he'd be a lock.

Not many teams with Rocky in it. Seems as those the 700K price tag has scared a vast majority away. He does have a better average than Gaz over the past 25 games. If Gaz wasn't around, wonder how many sides Rocky would be in then……

Plenty like me, still have Leuenberger in their sides…..and may need to implement mission 'abort'.

The Could of Been 'Dynamic Duo' of Mitch Clark & Jesse Hogan is still very much a popular F5 & F6 combination.

Not a lot of coaches want to fork out the mullah for Robbie Gray.

A handful of the community must reside in Western Sydney and been attending GWS training, as they have selected Turnover Tobe's. Must be hitting targets by foot this pre season, or will he handball everything to Griffen?

Langdon bobbing up in quite a few sides. Can't decide if this is a trap or a very astute selection.

Oh where's Wombats and Dools? No more @WombatsFC on twitter. Hope they're both keeping well.

Doc2Drej · 07/03/2015 at 07:48

My team as it stands:
D: Taylor, Newnes, Langdon, Gearry, Jaksch, Dick (Goddard, Saad)
M:Ablett, Rockliff, Pendlebury, Selwood, Rich, Hallahan, NVB, Anderson (Boekhorst, Freeman, Lambert)
R: Goldstein, Naitanui (Nankervis)
F:Deledio, Goddard, Swan, Martin, Salem, Clark (Hogan, Krakouer)

Not set in stone, could still make lots of changes before round 1

Could swap:

Jaksch with Pearce

Taylor with another defender 400-450k

NVB with Cripps/Newton/Biggs

1 or both of Deledio/Goddard with one or both of Bartel/Dusty

J Martin for Garlett

Could also downgrade Salem to a rookie for extra cash, as I reckon Hogan could be an adequate F6

    Doc2Drej · 07/03/2015 at 10:40

    Swap karnezis for Mitch Clark to start off with. Then, I’d downgrade one of your premium mids to griffen or swallow or rich or hallahan, as it isn’t a great idea to have the 5 most expensive players in the same midfield. Take the money you save there to upgrade one of your playing rookies in the back line to someone like Kristian Jaksch, as I reckon 2 playing rookies is too much in defence

    Doc2Drej · 07/03/2015 at 10:43

    Also I wouldn’t trust Leuey with his body, along with the fact that Martin is arguably brissys number 1 ruck and will take a lot of points off of Leuey

    t_mitch · 07/03/2015 at 11:14

    love the mids, i think you must start with 5 of the top 10 mids but you have just gone bang and got the top 5 i think its great. id be worried about mitchell, purely personal as i think he is very over rated and dont think he fits in with longmires game plans, as proven last year. and im scared off bellchambers as we wont even get a look until round 1 at the earliest. overall i like it

I have $8,800 left. Any suggestions?

Hello boys and girls, I present you. My team

Defence: Simspon, Shaw, Enright, Lumumba, Lever, Goddard/ Kolodshnij, Saad

Mid: Ablett, Pendlebury, Priddis, Watson, S. Mitchell, Newton, Biggs, Rookie/ Freeman, Lambert, Vandanberg

Ruck:: Nicnat, Leuenberger

Forward: Deledio, Goddard, Ryder, Swan, Clark, Hogan/ Caleb, Lamb

Notes: I have 20 k left over so I could swap lumumba for newns, but I have a massive growing hunch that lumumba will shred it.
Leuenberger: I dont care what people say about him. His nab cup scores dont worry me. I just look back at his 2013 and 2011 when he was fit and averaging 100. I am looking to trade him out by the bye rounds. Ryder is meant to give me flexibility in the ruck plus I think he will thrive at port.

All suggestions welcome

    t_mitch · 07/03/2015 at 11:01

    luenberger scored that as a clear number 1 ruck with nobody close to him as r2 now he has been clearly replaced my martin as number 1 at the club, wont get near the numbers he once had. so i have not even considered him this year, but i may be wrong as ALOT of supercoaches still have him in their plans so best of luck to him but a clear no for me

Jimmy Batel

PRO: Proven SC player in a good team
CON: Old and Geelong might manage minutes


PRO: Still in the tail end of his footy prime, scores big and often
CON: Shit bloke, shit team. ASADA saga looms and I don't like him.

Ryder (help my weak ruck)

PRO: Helps me out as R3 in the forward line, good scorer in a better team
CON: Lobbe is still in the best 22 as the number 1 ruckman, always seen ryder as a better mobile bigman up forward but for the price tag not banking on him making his moneys worth up there.


PRO: Consistent for a big man, capable of huge scores and is now second year at the swans.
CON: Still above all a key position player and I think i can nab him in an upgrade when his price dips


PRO: He is decently priced and has scored well in the past, has a spot for him in the best team in the comp and is said to be over injury troubles and ready to go into the mid more without twanging a hammy
CON: Injury prone and if put up forward can be average


PRO: Breakout contender that can play through the middle or up forward and score alright.
CON: Riskiest pick here, doggies are shit and libba is down.

Need help on this last F and defensive rookies

    jmy77777 · 07/03/2015 at 13:17

    i dont know about you, all your team looks good, apart from your ruck, i wouldnt feel confortable sleeping with grundy and tbc, even if your did get ryder to help

Lycett allows ruck cover, hoping Zorko gets some consistency and WhiteX gets a game. What do others think? Is there better choices than Ibbotson?

Predicted score

Guru's – either from the Higgonator or the SC Site… what sort of predic ted score are you looking for at this stage… I was thinking around 2000 given rookies are minimal??


Braedyn · 07/03/2015 at 15:33

Thoughts on clancee Pearce?

Ryan · 07/03/2015 at 17:16

Big Risks, Big Rewards
Rookies are not set, will change before round one.
I really want fyfe in but cant fit in him, he will be the first player to upgrade to.
L.Neale's price will rise $120 000, A big pod, Fyfe, Hill and Mundy will be tagged, neale is a loose man, same with greene, Greene's price will rise 100 grand, Ward and Griffen will have taggers on to them. Both are guns.

Defenders are little weak, no surprise there but mid prices and rookies will average the same anyways, that happens every year.

Rucks: Set and Forget. If one of them goes down, no problems, 30 trades, plenty of trades left, not concerned about that.

Forwards are little weak, not worried about that.

Def: B. Smith, H.Shaw, J.Newnes, C.Pearce, B.Whitecross, H. Goddard, M.Marteit, A.Saad

Mid: G.Ablett, S.Pendlebury, J.Selwood, T.Greene, A.Swallow, L.Neale, N.Van Berlo, B, Newton, J.Anderson, N.Freeman, A.Vandenberg

Rucks: T.Goldstein, N.Naitauni, T.Nankervis

Fwds: L.Franklin, D.Martin, D.Swan, M.Clark, J.Hogan, C.Daniel K.Lambert, N.Krakouer,

I would love to have any suggestions πŸ™‚ cheers coaches.

    Donkey on the Edge · 20/03/2015 at 15:23


    Pearce will suffer as a result of the Crowley suspension, Whitecross isnt a given for round 1 and maybe Gibbo is a better option than Shaw.

    GAJ….. difficult call maybe look at his output from Rd1 and 2 given the shoulder concerns.
    It will take a lot for Greene to improve by the numbers your looking at and I think there is better value elsewhere
    Not convinced on NVB – maybe look at Cripps instead.
    Will Freeman get a geurnsey?

    Big money on the rucks….. Maric may be better value than Goldy but only time will tell , watch Nic Nat this weekend and have a back up strategy there as all the noises recently were that he was struggling again.

    Franklin and Swan…… on their day awesome just not sure if their day is done. Franklin has had a great pre season so maybe gets the benefit of the doubt . Swan however is a different matter. Happy to be corrected or shouted down but IMO he is on his way out. I think the pies will rest him significantly this season and that cant be good for his return.

    I think maybe you should trim a premo mid (premo includes Neale but i suggest Greene) and re invest in upgrading Pearce and Swan.

    Good Luck

      Ryan · 20/03/2015 at 23:59

      hey donkey on the edge, this was last week, after hearing from ross lyon about pearce, he was kicked out of the team, and may look into bewick from lions, whitecross is out of the team as well, wont play early games,

      About ablett, i know, but ill hold onto him until last minute, not too worried about that yet

      Swan had one bad year, after amazing years, but tell me which players are better than him at that price? not many, ill stick with swan, no they wouldnt rest him, collingwood will struggle to make in the eight.

      Big money on rucks, yes, set and forget is the best option, ill see how nic nat goes,

DEF: Hibberd, Newnes, Nick Haynes (for now), Vlastuin, Pearce, Goddard (Saad, Maynard)
MID: Pendlebury, Fyfe, D.Beams, Sloan, Ward, Van Berlo, Newton, Heeney (Boekhorst, Vandenberg, Freeman)
RUC: Naitanui, Bellchambers
FWD: Robbie Grey, Martin, Bennell, Swan, Salem, Clark (Hogan, Lambert)

Gone a little cheaper in the back line as I reckon 2 of Haynes, Vlastuin and Pearce can probably crack an 80 average whereas some of the 'Defensive Premiums' might end up averaging 90… not worth the $500-$600k for me to upgrade those three blokes into premiums.

Not starting with Gaz was a decision based on Fyfe, Pendles and Gaz all having the same bye round. I also am still a little concerned about his shoulder. If he averages 110 in his first 3 weeks, his price will come down significantly. If he averages 125, I don't see it being much higher than Pendles and Fyfe who will probably be up around the 115 range. If he averages 135, he will be even more of a modern day marvel and I'll tip my cap that I was wrong on that one. I used the Gaz money to get an additional premium both in the midfield (Ward) and forward (Robbie Gray) so I kinda feel like it was money well spent.

    If GAJ is fit you have to pick him,take a look at this early season scores you won't be able to afford him later.

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.

    Feeling like not enough POD to give me an edge. Should I drop Martin for Franklin maybe?

      Lucas · 08/03/2015 at 13:38

      I Wouldn't recommend changing to a POD for the sake of it. Only if you see them being a keeper (change of role or team)

        Weary · 08/03/2015 at 19:24

        Yeah. Good advice. Goes against what I would usually do. Too much time to fiddle with my team!

    Dools · 08/03/2015 at 14:49

    Hi Weary,
    WhiteX is not IMO in Hawks best 22 so put a line through him… Kelly needs to be lucky to get a call up .Really like the MacMillan Pick mate. shows you to be a student of this game.
    Like the Rucks and Fwd line but we have only 2 players in common Swan and one other LOL (not Richmond boys either)
    Your a Nth Melbourne supporter eh??

      Weary · 08/03/2015 at 19:22

      Hahaha, yeah I am. Usually don’t pick Nth players as there is two reasons for them to
      pi$$ me off then. Do see value in Wells and MacMillan tho. Yeah, Whitecross has to go. Just gotta find some cash. Cheers Doors!

Going with weak backline. Backline lacking premiums this year with solid durability and consistancy so taking the most risk here. Set and forget rucks with bellchambers as backup in forward line. Midfield premiums i see as keepers. Forward line Guns N Rooks.

      dmcleod87 · 08/03/2015 at 18:21

      thanks yeah i was going for value and the possibility to make some $$ off players like van berlo/clarke….bit of a risk vs reward strategy. team is likely to change a few more times depending on NAB cup form

Walters or Wingard as F4?

    both can be very inconsistent, do you have swan and mitchell already if not look at them.
    i wouldnt have any in my team but if any i would take wingard but he can have really low games.

    Too thin in the back line even considering how poor it is this year. With the extra $163, might be worth upping Whitecross to Ibbotson, Geary, potentially Vlastuin…

    Whitecross could see the vest a little this season and is expensive for the limited potential updside.

    Mozz · 09/03/2015 at 18:11

    Looks like a pretty solid team! Good job with playing this game all the way from Brazil too.
    I think your MID is pretty solid, wouldn't make any changes to that.

    I think that in the DEF, you should get rid of Geary. He may be a solid 70-80 point scorer, but you have 3 St,Kilda players in the one position. If St.Kilda have a shocking game (and i'm sure they will have a few this year), their players will score lower. Swap him to a rookie and you'll have enough for a corrective trade after round 1 πŸ™‚

      LETSGETTROPICAL · 09/03/2015 at 18:35

      What kind of coin are you left with?

      Budstar · 10/03/2015 at 00:45

      Cheers Mozz, played last year in the US and did alright hoping the same this year in Brazil as well. Good idea having cash set aside for corrective trades for first couple of rounds, just not convinced with the rookies down back. Was hoping for an avg of 80 by Geary Langdon and Pearce and upgrade them around bye rounds. Was after around 450 initially down back. Go hard or go home in the Mids need to go deep, good rookie options there and in the forward line. Not convinced with Luey in the ruck but a cheaper option there to go deeper else where initially, would prefer Nic Nat and Goldie in rucks.

    Mozz · 09/03/2015 at 17:36

    Not sold on Lobbe. With the addition of Ryder to the Port side, they now have 2 rucks. Ruck roles would be shared between them which = less points for both

@TheNoLanguage · 09/03/2015 at 16:01

Hi community, what a wonderful time of year. Here is my team as of yesterday would love to get any thoughts..
B – Simpson, Shaw, Newnes, C.Pearce, S.Edwards, H.Goddard (Beasley, Saad)
M – GAJ, Beams, Heppell, Boak, Swallow, Wells, NVB, Heeney (Cripps, Anderson, Lambert)
R – Goldy, Nic Nat (Wright)
F – Lids, Goddard, Swan, Salem Clark, Hogan (Daniel, Krakouer)
145k in the bank
Am very torn on whether or not to upgrade Pearce to Gibson in defence with him going loose and the likelihood of that continuing. Also is Heppells knee injury enough for to go with a Pendlebury/Priddis instead?
Any feedback would be sensational guys πŸ™‚

    Mozz · 09/03/2015 at 17:30

    Leave C.Pearce in your side for the moment and see how he goes in the final NAB challange matches. Priced at that price, you would want him to score around 70-80 a week, which i think he can do quite comfortably.

    I would also upgrade Heppell. Who you go with is up to you, I always choose GAJ #1 & Pendles #2 in my mid, however Priddis is my M3 this either choice is valid. Priddis will step it up this year after winnning the brownlow.
    You want at least 3 players that you can be assured will score 115+ each week and for that reason, upgrade Heppell.

    Mozz · 09/03/2015 at 17:24

    Personally i wouldn't go with Lumumba, he has never really been a SC scorer. Downgrade him to a rookie and then you can upgrade somewhere else or just keep the money. I always like to leave at least 100k in the bank at the start of round 1 so that you can have a corrective trade up when someone in your team spunks it up.

Thommohawk · 09/03/2015 at 17:36

    Nice team plenty of cash in the bank still, good call. Your team is fairly similiar too mine. I like Brodie Smith down back gun, not sure about 2 rookies onfield this year down back. Nathan Brown will never score much more than 50 and is a Supercoach Spud but he's in the Pies best 22 and will get games maybe extra cover down there? Great team all the best this year πŸ™‚

    Looks great Mids, Forwards and Rucks, but the Backs not strong enough 3 of your rookies will be lucky to get a game, Whitecross not in Hawks teams best 22 anymore, Henderson is a great Pod but competing against Smith and Jaensh both had big years for the crows!! You may need to take a premo from forward line and put premo down back. Better rookie forward options than down back. Also Gaz Pendles and Fyfe same bye round something to consider. All the best with your team and 2015

Hey guys, I’m pretty new here and I’m looking for a little team validation. Been mucking around with ideas and haven’t quite settled on one yet, but here’s what I currently have:

I’m still undecided about a few of them and would really appreciate a few critical comments/ideas for improvement from any and all as I’m so goddamn indecisive. May upgrade Jones – Whitecross and change Nic Nat (If he's busted) to Giles.

At this point of year obviously the rooks are subject to change.

Cheers community!!

    Hi mate,

    I like it, some brave calls that could make all the difference.

    Pearce concerns me now that it looks like Crowley will be out. I reckon he’s gonna become their #1 tagger now. Whether that effects his scores, we will have to wait and see. Edwards is a nice POD.

    Like the mids, 5 premiums is bang on the momey IMO.

    Rucks the same as mine (different bench) so obviously I rate that line. πŸ™‚

    And finally, any forward line with swan at F4 is pretty damn strong

    I finished mid 1600s last year, looking to improve again- I misht have to watch out for you taking my spot in the top 500! My team is down the page a bit.


DRM1974 · 15/03/2015 at 12:47

hey fella's going to spend the day working out my side here it is so far
Shaw Houli Newnes Langdon Clurey Goddard H Kolo J Saad
Alblett Selwood Jack Swan Rich NVB Lang Anderson Cockatoo Krakouer Lambert
Mummy Smith Read
Gray Franklin Martin Daisy Clark Salem Langford Daniel

Still holes all over the shop but that what today is for any thoughts or comments would be appreciated

    Nathan · 17/03/2015 at 10:49

    I'd drop Franklin, move Swan forward, add then find another midfield option… ie Wines/Neale etc.

Mitchell Newton · 15/03/2015 at 21:19

Def: Shaw, Hibberd, Newnes, Kolodjashnij, Goddard, Saad (Mckenzie, Maynard)

Mid: Ablett, Pendlebury, Fyfe, Dangerfield, A.Swallow, Rich, Heeney, Boekurst (Laverde, Vandenberg, Freeman)

Ruck: Naitanui, Bellchambers (Nankervis)

Forward: Gray, Goddard, Martin, Swan, Salem, Clark (Krakouer, Lambert)

Stickman · 16/03/2015 at 22:34

Feel like I'm almost there. Thoughts?
Shaw, Newnes, Adcock, Ibbotson, Whitecross, Edwards (Goddard, Viojo-Rainbow)

Deledio, Goddard, Swan, Mitchell, Clark, Hogan (Lamb, Lambert)
Thankyou all feedback is welcome.

    jimmo · 16/03/2015 at 22:48

    Maybe a Geary/Hunt/Seedsman pick for WhiteX – wont play round 1/2, might play 3, depends what happens down at box hill.
    I'm not too sure..
    Up to you I guess.
    Pretty strong team otherwise/

      Stickman · 16/03/2015 at 22:58

      Thanks jimmo only have 25k in the bank, who would I downgrade to free up cash?

        jimmo · 16/03/2015 at 23:11

        Very tough question actually. Not alot of places that are not worth investing in..
        If your happy with that team – Back yourself!

    dognino · 16/03/2015 at 23:34

    Don't know about Alcock, I think there might be a few others a bit cheaper for similar output, all risky tho, and who knows who will continue they're form into the season proper . If you're keen to go the mid price risks, Bewick is scoring better than Alcock and 80k cheaper, or maybe geary, then you can upgrade whitecross to a jakcsh or Simon white. And might need to move on rainbow to maybe saad. Depends who plays R1 tho
    Also I'm not keen on nankervis or Naismith getting regular games with the swans to warrant a bench spot, again if they are named R1 you probly need to pick one, but you could save yourself another 10k downgrading to read if it's going to be a dead position anyway

      Stickman · 16/03/2015 at 23:53

      Thanks for the feedback, selected Adcock as he averaged 90 in wins last year and was hoping he would take Hanley's role at half back in the first half of the season. Will now definitely look into bewick and simon white, would like to see how White goes against Geelong first. Make a good point on the rookies at the moment. Have nankervis and viojo as I believe it easier to downgrade to the likes of Saad and Read, rather than getting caught with a lack of a spare cash to upgrade to rookies who play rd 1 who might be more expensive.

white_line_fever · 17/03/2015 at 01:46

Hi all, rejigged the team for the 100th time.. thoughts on the defensive line (no rookies on field). Mids going deep with proven yet undervalued premos. Plus Neale who is set for a ripper year.
Naitanui to go back after a big preseason, niggles are just that, will be cherry ripe round 1.. TBC in super cheap, rise in price then upgrade asap.
And forwards, little unsure of salem after the dockers game, but was accumulating against WB. Unsure of steele also, but was a magnet as a junior and score have been at a good rate thus far in NAB… Appreciate feed back πŸ™‚ cheers, good luck for the season punters

Burgoyne, Yarran, Newnes, Haynes, Ibbotson, McMillan, (Saad, Goddard)

Ablett, Kennedy, Wines, Griffin, Swallow, Neale, Newton, Cripps (Anderson, Heeney, Freeman)

Naitanui, Bellchambers (Read)

Gray, D.Martin, Swan, Salem, M Clark, Steele (Krakouer, Lambert)

    Keg · 17/03/2015 at 10:01

    Not too bad I reckon. Though I think you could free up some cash in your M8 and spend it elsewhere to strengthen that line (eg I think you need one more decent midpriced forward and push Salem back to F5. Also I’m not sold on belchambers, but he will probably prove me wrong)

    I just reckon there’s money to be made quicker and easier with midfield rookies than anywhere else this year. And- you need to leave some room for a smokie who kills it and you just HAVE to get in

    My side is listed below yours a bit, feel free to pick mine apart in return!

    bennnno · 17/03/2015 at 19:47

    rockliff / fyfe/ pendles in for ablett. in doubt for rd1…

spud · 17/03/2015 at 09:27

Current team – like to fit Fyfe in and upgrade the backs but not that keen on the premo backs to be honest, 2 melbourne forwards might be too much. Rookies obviously aren't set. Thoughts?

BACK || Shaw, Taylor, Higgins, Savage, Edwards, Goddard (McKenzie, Saad)

MID || Ablett, Pendlebury, Selwood, Griffen, ASwallow, Judd, Newton, Heeney (Ellis-Yolmen, Vandenberg, Krakour)

RUCK || Maric, NicNat (Read)

FORWARD || Gray, Bartel, Swan, Salem, Clark, Hogan (Daniel, Lambert)

Keg · 17/03/2015 at 09:55

This is about my 1000th version, but slowly getting closer to happy with it

Backs- jeansch, Johnson, newnes, lumumba, hamling, Goddard (saad, n brown)

Mids- gaz, pendles, Selwood, priddis, Neale, Newton, Anderson, heeney (miller, Steele, lambert)

Rucks- goldy, Nic Nat (cox)

Forwards- Gray, Martin, swan, Higgins, Salem, Clarke (lonie, krakoueur)

My rookies will swap on or off the ground depending on who gets a gig round 1.

I’ve gone Higgins (reluctantly) because of the DPP flexibility he gives me with Goddard.

My defensive rookies really worry me, just hoping someone gets a game for me or its bck to the drawing board and maybe a complete restructure!


    white_line_fever · 17/03/2015 at 13:03

    thanks for the feed back.

    Your side is looking good. Liking your mids. And have the same premo forwards. Defence is going to be the make or break situation.. have had hamling in my side numerous times, but scoring ability is a worry. If you are sold on nic nat (like i am), then maybe goldy to Maric to free cash up.. I am not locking anything in till after NAB3 and team announcements, apparently ablett is unsure of round 1 :/

    All in all you've got a good side. Have a good year

      Keg · 17/03/2015 at 13:50

      Cheers mate

      Tempted to downgrade Neale to rich so I can upgrade hamling to a Jaksch type and solidify the backs a bit. Will wait and see I guess.

      Thanks for your input

James · 17/03/2015 at 10:29

Tear this team apart if need be fellas otherwise sing my praises haha.

Backs: Simpson, M. Johnson, Newnes, Rampe, Jaksch, H.Goddard (Edwards, Saad)

Mids: Ablett, Rockliff, Fyfe, Selwood, Cripps, Newton, Anderson, Cockatoo (Heeney, Ellis-Yolmen, Lambert)

Rucks: Goldstein, Nic Nat (Bellchambers)

Forwards: Gray, Martin, Swan, Salem, Clark, Hogan (Daniel, Lamb)

Taken a couple of punts down back with Rampe (believe he is the most suited to Malceski role) Jaksch (Carlton love him and if he averages 75 or there abouts he could be a great stepping stone to a gun).
Bellchambers at R3 is great cover if Nic Nats groin/ lower back wants to give way.

33k left in the bank

    Keg · 17/03/2015 at 12:06

    Personally I would lose hogan and push bell forward, his points are wasted on the bench. Use cox as ruck bench (still has DPP) and can be swapped with bel if nick Nat does go down

      James · 17/03/2015 at 12:17

      Keg do you believe Hogan will not score very well? I'm also a little hesitant in having Bellchambers start on the field with ASADA and all.

        Keg · 17/03/2015 at 12:43

        I reckon hogan will have some good games here and there, but I usually steer well clear of KPP’s, especially young ones.
        I agree the whole ASADA thing is a worry, but hopefully it’s all resolved by round 1 so you know whether to go with bel or not

John · 17/03/2015 at 11:24

Hey Guys
thoughts on my team would be much appreciated,
is it too risky to hope defence rookies play?
is kelly a valid pick? more midfield time? could take anyone under 485k instead of him.
downgrade Hogan to a cheaper rookie to allow more cash to be used on other rookies? Brown in def?

DEF: Simpson, Shaw, Kelly, Newnes, Goddard, Saad (Edwards, Mckenzie)

MID: Ablett, Pendlebury, Fyfe, Selwood, Kennedy, Newton, Heeney, Vandenberg (Ellis-Yolmen, Steel, Lambert)

RUCK: Mumford, Naitinui (Read)

FWD: Bartel, Martin, Swan, Salem, Clark, Hogan (Daniel, Krakouer)

Gmoney · 17/03/2015 at 11:28

Hi guys,

just need a little advice on my team structure and whether its a good fit?

DEF: Shaw, Hibberd, Newnes, Ibbotson, N Brown, S Edwards (Goddard, Saad)
MID: Ablett, Pendlebury, Selwood, Dangerfield, Mitchell, Neale, Newton, Ellis-Yolmen (Boekherst, Steele, Krakour)
RUC: Goldstein, Nic Nat (Read)
FWD: Gray, Martin, Swan, Salem, Clark, Daniel (Hogan, Lambert)

Obviously the rookies are subject to change but how is the balance of my team? Any advice?


James · 17/03/2015 at 12:18

Guys opinions on either Hogan or Membrey?

    Redgumwon · 17/03/2015 at 13:49

    Neither go for a cheap running type forward who might score more than a key position player in average scoring sides

Benjemima · 17/03/2015 at 13:24

.DEF: H.Shaw, J.Newnes, G.Ibbotson, T.Langdon, J.Geary, S.Edwards. (J.Hamling, A.Saad)

    Marco_Polo94 · 18/03/2015 at 18:24

    Not a fan of rich but i like the midfield other than that. good in the rucks. forward line looks similar to what a lot of people have who are going to F4. Mid priced defence pretty standard too this season. all in all solid team.

JimiH · 17/03/2015 at 13:37

Would appreciate some feedback. I have tried something different this time ’round due to the lack of any solid defensive rookies. There are a few risky selections but I reckon all are under valued and should atleast make some coin (channelling a bit of Impromptu)

Backs: Simpson, Shaw, Fisher, Newnes, Adcock, Ibbotson. Subs: Goddard, Hamling.

Mids: Ablett, Dependlebury, Griffen, A.Swallow, Anderson, Heeney, Lambert, Krakouer. Subs: Boekhorst, Steele, Saad.

Rucks: Minson, Nic Nat. Subs: Read.

Forwards: Deledio, Goddard, Martin, Swan, Salem, Clark. Subs: Lonie, Daniel.

Thoughts please….

    Marco_Polo94 · 18/03/2015 at 18:26

    D6 being a $300k+ player is just a waste of coin imo. there will be rookies that emerge, we still have 2 weeks until the season starts. Going to M4 is way too shallow. Anderson, Heeney, Lambert and Krakouer might not even start, and if they do high vest candidates. Rucks look good. Forwards look very strong! but one of those premiums may have to make way to improve your midfield.

tommykmoore · 17/03/2015 at 14:02

Hi community, loving all the chat in hear at this exciting time of year.

here is my latest attempt, would love your feedback please!!

back: H Shaw, J Gibson, Newnes, K Kolodashni, Smedts, Goddard (Dalgiesh, Hamling)

mids: GAJ, Beams, Priddis, Parker, Griffen, Newton, Cripps, Ellis-Yolmen (Heeney, Lambert, Steele)

Rucks: Sandi, Nic nat (Read)

Fwds: Grey, Boomer, Bartel, Salem, Clarke, Hogan, (Lamb, Krakour).

going from some consistent performers as PODS and aiming to take advantage of some well priced rooks in the fwd line for quick growth. As much as there is speculation in the rooks at the moment (all over the ground), there is a lot of speculation about who will end up in the top 10 performing mids.

Im excited community, hit me with your thoughts!!!


    Marco_Polo94 · 18/03/2015 at 18:27

    Defence looks solid
    Mids look solid
    Rucks look solid
    Forwards look solid

    Good team.

    vinnymac · 24/03/2015 at 00:42

Hi community,

Long time reader first time poster.

Just want a bit of an assessment of my team, any feedback by those who know more than me would be appreciated.

DEF: Shaw, H. Taylor, Newnes, Higgins, Whitecross, Goddard.. Bench: Dalgleish, Saad

MID: Ablett, Rockliff, Sloane, Ward, Judd, Newton, Cripps, Heeney. BENCH: Vandenberg, Elis-Yolmen, Steele

RUCK: Mummy, Nic Nat BENCH: Cox (Waitng for good rookie option to appear)

FWD: Zorko, Bennel, Swan, Bellchambers, Clark, Hogan BENCH: Daniel, Krakouer

Have $24700 left in the bank.
Trying to find an alternative for whitecross, not super enthused about his postion in the team.
Any thoughts?

    Mozz · 17/03/2015 at 21:05

    I'm not sold on Whitecross either, would rather someone who i could trust.
    One option you could do is to trade down one of your FWD premos and trade them for a rookie (because there are so many fwd rookies this year). With all this extra cash, I would consider looking at Langdon from collingwood. With Lumumba leaving collingwood, there's a massive hole to fill up in their defense and Langdon fits in perfectly.

    Another option is L.McDonald from North, i think he will score well this year but i won't be picking him because i'm unsure how his role will change with the addition of Higgins

    vinnymac · 24/03/2015 at 00:52

    Trade Whitecross for S. Edwards or Joel Hambling. Reckon they'll get games

Jonathan · 17/03/2015 at 20:09

Defence: Shaw, Adcock, Lumumba, Ibbotson, Geary, Brown (Edwards, Saad)
Midfield: Ablett, Selwood, Sloane, Parker, Neale, Rich, Newton, Anderson (Steele, Boekhurst, Freeman)
Ruck: Mumford, Naitanui (Cox)
Forward: Bennell, Smith, Swan, Clark, Salem, Karnezis (Lonie, Lambert)

Thoughts would be nice I'll take any feedback

    Mozz · 17/03/2015 at 21:01

    What is your reasoning behind Bennell? It's a big risk not going with Deledio or Martin

shaun · 17/03/2015 at 20:16

hi all have made a few changes would like you to give me your oppinion

DEF: Shaw, Newnes, Kolodjashnij, Geary, Hamling, Saad (Edwards, Goddard)
MID: Ablett, Pendlebury, Lewis, Dangerfield, Griffen, Neale, Boekhorst, Freeman (Ellis-Yolmen, Steele, Krakouer)
RUCK: Jacobs, Naitanui (Cox)
FWDS: Gray, Martin, Swan, Mitchell, Clark, Hogan (Daniel, Lambert)

Still have $11800 in the bank.

    Mozz · 17/03/2015 at 21:00

    what is your reasoning behind Kolodjashnij & Hamling?

    This year the DEF position is extremely tough & i don't know if taking risks back there is a good idea.

richardnguyen94 · 17/03/2015 at 20:41

hi all, would love to hear feedback on my mob!

DEF: H. Shaw, J. Newnes, G. Ibbotson, J. Macmillan, N. Brown, H. Goddard (B. Maynard, A. Saad)
MID: GAJ, Pendles, Beams, Dangerfield, Griffen, Swallow, I. Heeney, B. Boekhorst (N. Freeman, T. Miller, N. Krakouer)
RUCK: Goldy, Nic Nat (Read)
FWDS: R. Gray, D. Martin, Swanny, Bellchambers, C. Salem, M. Clark (J. Hogan, K. Lambert)

77.3k in the bank

Obviously having brown as my D5 is far from ideal but i feel like this year having 6 premo mids (even if swallow doesn't become a top 8 mid there's little doubt he'll be a stepping stone to an ultra-premo) is preferable to having another 'premo' defender given how sketchy the situation is. I'd rather have another mid who i know will pump out 110+ scores weekly as opposed to a defender who i'm not confident will hit 90 on a regular basis let alone 100. would love to hear everyone's thoughts on that. Thanks!

    Mozz · 17/03/2015 at 20:57

    I'm not sold on Ibbotson or Macmillan. Maybe a good idea would be to downgraed TBC to another fwd rookie, and then you can upgrade one of your defenders (maybe even Brown) to another premo

    many people are leaving dangerfield as an upgrade target because he has his bye in round 11. Historically danger has started slowly (remember last year everyone jumped off him) and then ended the year strongly.
    i'm not saying that you shouldn't go in with danger, but that's just a thought. Who are you looking to trade up in round 12 after the first bye round?

    otherwise a really good team πŸ™‚

      richardnguyen94 · 17/03/2015 at 21:26

      Cheers Mozz!

      yeah plenty of red flags with ibbo and jmac but if healthy both will play every game and play in roles that are sc friendly so i thought it was worth the punt given how little on offer there is in the backline.

      fair call about danger, definitely going to consider that; although even if he should start slow again could you see getting him under 600k? After the first bye i was looking to trade to rockliff/sloane/cotchin (just whoever is the in form premo from the first bye)

      TBC is insurance for if nic nat is no good since i can swing read forward so im keen to hold on to him! i guess i could downgrade danger to a p.cripps then upgrade browny to j. kelly(if he's back in the mid again)/b. smith/hibberd and then look to upgrade to him after the bye, what are your thoughts on that?

I have currently got Geary and whitecross in my back line.
Any suggestions who can I replace them with? Do I replace them at all?



    Marco_Polo94 · 18/03/2015 at 18:33

    Geary could come off. Whitecross doesn't seem to be in the hawks picture atm. either upgrade to a mid pricer or downgrade to rookie depending on structures.

Forwards: Gray, Dusty, Swan, Jack Martin, Salem, Clark

(Daniel, Karakouer)

For me it’s either Pendles/ Heath Shaw combo OR Rockliff/ Rampe combo?

    BomberSam · 18/03/2015 at 12:43

    The Pendles/Shaw combo by a mile. Reliability.

    You have spent big on somewhat unproven midfield rookies- Cripps, Newton and Cockatoo. I recommend downgrading 1-2 of them to search for better value. Be mindful that Cockatoo is a high vest candidate.

    There is so much value in forward rookies this year, no reason to go to F4. I suggest downgrading Jack Martin to a rookie.

    With all the cash restored through downgrades, you could strengthen your midfield to M5- the optimal structure in my opinion.

      James · 18/03/2015 at 13:14

      Thanks for the advice Bomber Sam and may I add you support a great club!!
      Points taken although who would you ook at for M5 even with the downgrades I'd rather upgrade Nic Nat to a Maric not sure on Nic Nat durability. Newton and Cripps I feel would be more valuable come bye time than a mid priced M5 like Rich for example?

        BomberSam · 18/03/2015 at 14:26

        Your current ruck combination is perfect. Obviously it's a hard game to predict whether ruckmen can hold up for a season… most will miss 2-3 games. Goldstein and Nic Nat is very safe, lock them in.

        By starting 5 premium mids, you eliminate the risk of falling behind the eight ball early in the season, and you will save precious trades later on. Newton and Cripps are likely to become good stepping stones, and will generate far more cash than a mid-pricer like Rich. I would be looking to upgrade Newton, as I see more upside in Cripps based on NAB challenge form. Cripps is averaging 22.5 points more than Newton, from 9% less time on ground.

        SC Ave: 92
        Disposals: 16
        DE: 74%
        TOG: 69%

        SC Ave: 69.5
        Disposals: 16
        DE: 65.5%
        TOG: 78%

          James · 18/03/2015 at 15:37

          Great analysis. Tell me though if you have a 4 premium mid with for example GAJ, Pendles, Fyfe, Rockliff and then set and forget rucks like Goldy, Jacobs you should still make up for that M5 spot. The reason i'm finding it hard to fit in an M5 is because I cant afford a premium and don't want to fall into the trap of a midpricer who is a risk? For me others will be wasting trades later in the year trying to get those prem mids in where a team with those 4 already locked in can save a trade having to fork out for them. Thoughts?

            General Soreness · 18/03/2015 at 16:53

            Go Martin to Rookie, Newton or other Rookie up to Swallow or better.

            BomberSam · 18/03/2015 at 18:22

            I feel that Goldstein and Jacobs would be overspending in a position that offers value further down. Also, note that due to the scoring changes in the ruck, it is predicted that almost all ruckmen will depreciate in value. Stop fretting over Nic Nat, he is value personified this season.

            You can make it work with a bit of chopping and changing. The obvious one is to downgrade Jack Martin to a rookie, freeing you up around $180k. You could consider Robbie Gray as an upgrade target rather than a starter and downgrade to Bartel, Goddard or Franklin. Have a play with your defence, I feel like there is better value than Simpson. Consider the likes of Hibberd, James Kelly, Lumumba and Shaun Higgins.

            Where there is a will, there is a way.

    Spifflicator · 20/03/2015 at 06:43

    I like the rucks and defence James. I would however echo others views that you need to go deeper in the mids, to either M5 or even M6 with a BCrouch or Swallow type. I also worry about your cash generating ability due to having so few sub $150 rookies. Expensive rookies need to average 80+ to make you $200k, while a a cheaper rookie only has to go 65 for a similar return. I would look at downgrading Cockatoo and Jack Martin and using the cash at M5.

BomberSam · 18/03/2015 at 12:34

DEF: Shaw, Hibberd, Hurn, Newnes, Lumumba, Saad (Oxley, Goddard)

MID: Pendlebury, Selwood, Sloane, JPK, Griffen, Cripps, Boekhorst, Lambert (Vandenberg, Ellis-Yolmen, Steele)

RUCK: Maric, Naitanui (Read)

FWD: Goddard, Martin, Swan, Salem, Clark, Daniel (Lamb, Hogan)

Cash left: $59.8k

    James · 18/03/2015 at 13:44

    Not bad mate I did hear Hurn say on radio last night he won't be spending as much energy pushing up the ground this year and spent most time back as they have been a little depleted down back with Glass and McKenzie now gone.

    Naitanui scares me a bit don't know how he is holding up. You conient in him?

      BomberSam · 18/03/2015 at 14:56

      Thank you for that information James. I hope he plays NAB3 so I can get a look at him. If I think it will affect his SC output, who would you recommend I put in his place?

      For me, Naitanui looms as perhaps the value pick of the year. He is the undisputed number one ruckman at West Coast now that Cox has retired, and the coaches believe he is one game away from peak condition. I can see him averaging 105-115 points, set and forget.

        James · 19/03/2015 at 10:34

        If you decide to stay away from Hurn I do like Johnson. Freo go through him as much as possible and not to mention his intercept marking and rebounding

Marc · 18/03/2015 at 13:45

would like some thoughts on my current team…i feel DEF is the weakest, so open to all options..

DEF: Hurn, Newnes, Seedsman, Pearce, N Brown, Whitecross (Goddard, Saad)

MID: Ablett, Pendlebury, JPK, Griffen, B Crouch, Rich, Newton, Heeney (Boekhorst, Vandenburg, Freeman)

RUCK: Naitanui, Giles (Read)

FWD: Gray, Goddard, Martin, Swan, Clarke, Hogan (Krakouer, Lambert)

cash left: $109.6 k


    Marco_Polo94 · 18/03/2015 at 18:35

    Pearce will most likely tag, Whitecross isn't even in the fray atm and seedsman is coming back from injury. backline needs to be shuffled.

    Not a big fan of rich, but if thats the ilk you're after midfield looks fine.

    Giles is a very risky pick and i doubt he will be number 1 ruck man at essendon.

    Forward line is very strong.

    Spifflicator · 20/03/2015 at 06:50

    You're right your defence is almost non existent. Consider downgrading Goddard to Steele, and using that cash to upgrade Seedsman and Pearce to more reliable options such Gibsob or Sheppard etc.

Phelpos · 18/03/2015 at 13:45

Hey guys, team as follows:
Def: Yarran, Newnes, J Kelly, Hibberd, Ibbotson Saad (Edwards, Goddard)
Mids: Ablett, Pendelbury, Selwood, Dangerfield, Swallow, Anderon, Heeney, EY, (Freeman, Vandenberg, Lambert)
ruck: Nicnat, Maric (O'Brien)
Forwards: Swan, Gray, Deledio, Bellchambers, Clark, Hogan (Lamb, Krakouer)

Rookies subject to change and Round 1. Obviously Hibberd will too depending on ASADA. Appreciate the feedback.

    Marco_Polo94 · 18/03/2015 at 18:36

    Downgrade defender, upgrade midfield.

Brownie91 · 18/03/2015 at 14:21

Hey guys this is my team would love some feed back on if I need any changes cheers

Going to chnage around abit before round 1

    Marc · 18/03/2015 at 14:36

    only real concern would be Leuey for mine…..will his body hold up?/ I'm expecting Martin to have another big yr and Leuey will be playing 2nd fiddle if he's fit enough. Another similar price option could be Giles?
    FWD line is pretty much the same as mine and looks strong. I like the inclusion of Hannebury

      Brownie91 · 18/03/2015 at 14:50

      ok thanks marc yeah not keen on leuey either i only put him in my side cause his cheap but was always trade him out for someone and giles would be good option i have $384.400 k left and dont really want to trade or downgrade any of my players so do you recommend any other ruckman thats around this price ?

      Brownie91 · 18/03/2015 at 14:57

      Or What player should I trade out then trade another in so i could then afford Giles ?

        Marc · 18/03/2015 at 15:15

        I would maybe suggest going Burgoyne > M Johnson or something similar, that will save you about $38k
        Johnson is a solid DEF and has scored well in the first 2 NAB games.

Knyvett · 18/03/2015 at 15:21

With the Ablett news I have had to juggle my team around quite a bit with the hopes of him starting poor and dropping in price so that I can pick him up later. Here is what I have settled on at the moment, Please give me any advice or opinions about any or all of my players.

DEF: Shaw, Newnes, Lumumba, Langdon, Jaksch, Goddard, (Rainbow, Saad)
MID: Pendlebury, Selwood, Beames, Sloane, Griffen, Neale, Newton, Heeney, (Boekhurst, Vandenberg, Steele)
RUCK: Mumford, Zac Smith, (Read)
FWD: Bartel, Martin, Swan, Salem, Clark, Lambert, (Hogan, Krakouer)

Cash Left: $12,800

    General Soreness · 18/03/2015 at 16:56

    Ballsy ruck with Smith there Knyvett, will either be genius or madness, I do not have the plums. Nothing wrong with your other lines, personally do not like the Gift but I can see why people are picking him.

      Knyvett · 18/03/2015 at 17:15

      Yeah, I had TBC as R2, but wasn't comfortable with him, not sold on Smith either, hoping he steps up this weekend. I had some cash left over from ablett's downgrade and I wanted to upgrade the rucks, Ideally I would like Maric or someone similar to pair with Mummy, or even as R1 and someone like goldy as R2, but Mumford can be a huge gamechanger and with no Ablett I like that.

      Any suggestions on a not too expensive solution to my R2 troubles?

      As far as The Gift goes, I'm gonna assume that is Lumumba. I'm a Melbourne supporter and may be slightly biassed in my expectations of him, but I am going with a midprice defence strategy and I look at him as someone who wouldn't need to do too much in order to become a keeper. He just needs to be more accurate with his disposal.

$267K in the bank


    General Soreness · 18/03/2015 at 16:51

    Nice work Promise, you should spend some of that coin in the bank, it is a lot to have. Very strong rucks, for me Jacobs underdone = risk, downgrade will free up coin to go Newton up to a Premo or at a minimum Swallow, Crouch type.

Bmonster87 · 18/03/2015 at 17:15

SC leauge to join 313665 + a first look at my team 2015. Feels good!

Def – H.Shaw, Newnes, Mumumba, KK, Jakcsh, H.Goddard (A.Saad, Dick)
Mid – Rocky, Beams, Sidebottom, Crouch, Neale, NVB, Cripps, Newton (Heeney, Yollmen, Lambert)
Ruck – Naitanui, Berger (Cox)
Fwd – Gray, Bartel, D.Martin, D.Swan, Salem, Clark, (Hogan, Krakouer)

Best rookies are the mids….so have made way for them and loaded up on as many keepers in the FWD line, most back men are stepping stones as well due to the lack of Def options.


    Marco_Polo94 · 18/03/2015 at 18:21

    i see what you're saying, however i think you'll lose out on a lot of points with the tail end of your mids having 3 rookies and a mid pricer. Very deep forward line, could easily downgrade to improve midfield and rucks. I like the defence. Luey has to go, not convinced from what I've seen so far.

hungrylion23 · 18/03/2015 at 18:26

Cotch or Murph?

Both my boys, can only have 1.. :O

    Mozz · 18/03/2015 at 21:02


Hoops · 18/03/2015 at 18:50

What do you think??

Def – Simpson, Shaw, Newnes, Merrett, Brown, H Goddard, Whitecross, Saad

Mid- Gaz, Pendles, Fyfe, Selwood, Sloane, Murphy, Cockatoo, Heeney, Freeman, Krakouer, Lambert

Ruck – Jacobs, Bellchambers, Nankervis

Fwd – Gray, Swan, Mitchell, Clark, Hogan, Daniel, Lonie, Lamb

    Mozz · 18/03/2015 at 21:09

    Risky pick going with Merrett, but could pay off. Watch out for whitecross too, if he is not named in round 1, do not pick him

    Very nice midfield, i like the pick of murphy, that's a real POD! Also cockatoo is someone that many people don't have. People are jumping off freeman, might want to change to another rookie

    Nothing to complain about in rucks and fwds, they are good picks πŸ™‚
    please comment on my team too! thanks

matt · 18/03/2015 at 20:22

best 3 mid pricers out of bewick, rampe, newnes and kade kolidashni or how wever you spell it

@mustiD69 · 18/03/2015 at 20:38

Defenders: Newnes, Lumumba, Kolodjashnij, Sheppard, Henderson, Goddard – Saad, Maynard

Rucks: Nic Nat, Bellchambers – Phillips
Forwards: R. Gray, Franklin, Swan, M Clark, Hogan, C Daniel – T. Lamb, Lambert

I know I have alot of midpricers in the backline, but premiums aren't worth it at this point of the season. Once everyone gets a move on, upgrades would be alot easier from mid pricers to fallen premiums.
That's my theory.

Thoughts guys?

    @mustiD69 · 18/03/2015 at 20:55

    Alternative are Dangerfield for Sloane, and Goddard for Swan

    Mozz · 18/03/2015 at 21:02

    Lumumba is a great pick! Love him
    Not sold on Kolo – what is your reasoning behind picking him?
    Not sold on Sidebottom – what is your reasoning behind him?
    Barlow & Lewis are great POD options! No one has them
    Starting with Gray could prove costly, many people are keeping him for an upgrade target after round 11 bye, so that's a risky move but could pay off!!

    I like your team πŸ™‚ it could stand out from the rest! I wouldn't go with Goddard for swan or Dangerfield over sloane. Keep sloane and swan
    please comment on my team too

$259k in the bank

I'm essentially having troubles in every single line. It's so easy to go with a cookie-cutter team and just pick who everyone else has, but this year i'm not just going for league wins, I want to win that 50k! So i've picked a few PoD's to hopefully set me out from the rest of the pack.

Goodes – with the loss of libba, Boyd will no longer be the running half back and will be injected into the midfield, leaving Goodes with the running half back role. Is actually pretty cheap for a player that's going to have this big role

N.Jones – Gets the job done week in and week out. Was skeptical at the start of the season with the added midfielders in the Melbourne team, but it just seems that they will help Jones post bigger scores. I can see Melbourne winning more games this season, which means more of the 3,300 points going to melbourne players = more to Jones

Please leave any advice/criticisms πŸ™‚ would love to hear from others

    Marco_Polo94 · 19/03/2015 at 13:50

    I prefer Tyson over Jones. I like the Goodes pick if he is named. Apart from that pretty standard solid team. With that money I'd look at either upgrading your D5 or upgrading an on-field rookie in the mids to a Newton or something.

hungrylion23 · 18/03/2015 at 21:16

    Marco_Polo94 · 19/03/2015 at 12:51

    not certain on Jakcsh. feel like you may as well go a rookie over him. couple of nice PODs in the middle tho i'd upgrade NVB. Get rid of Berger. Heavy forward line, careful how much money you pour into there considering how many rookies up forward this season.

Thebighix · 19/03/2015 at 07:46

Would love some feedback, looks alright to me but I feel there's something not quite right here.

Def – B.Smith, J.Newnes, B.Sheppard, C.Pearce, K.Jaksch, B.Whitecross (S.Edwards, H.Goddard)
Mid – S.Pendlebury, J.Selwood, J.Kennedy, R.Griffen, D.Rich, M.Hallahan, B.Newton, I.Heeney (J.Anderson, N.Freeman, K.Lambert)
Rucks – S.Mumford, N.Naitanui (M.Cox)
Fwd – J.Bartel, D.Martin, D.Swan, T.Bellchambers, C.Salem, M.Clark (J.Hogan, J.Steele)

Have $228k sitting in the bank waiting to be spent.
Running with the theory of 2-3 premiums (waiting for G.Ablett to drop before including) but trying to cash in on as many mid price/bargain buys as possible, worked out well last year.

Any comments welcome, cheers

    Mozz · 19/03/2015 at 07:50

    you definitely need more money injected into the midfield, you don't have enough premos in the mid to score you enough points. I would donwgrade one of your fwds to K.Lambert, then upgrade Hallahan for a premo like Fyfe, Priddis etc.

      Thebighix · 19/03/2015 at 07:54

      Cheers for the feedback, was thinking the midfield was a little light on, but seemed to work with the bye rounds.
      Will do some shuffling!!

    BomberSam · 19/03/2015 at 11:38

    You have enough money just sitting there to go an extra mid deeper by upgrading Rich. I would definitely recommend starting 5 premium mids.

    I feel your defence is a little light on too, you must get it right this season. Whitecross probably won't play round 1, and either will Edwards, providing we don't get slapped with bans (I'm an Essendon supporter). You can always fix your rookies prior to round 1. Clancee Pearce will more than likely tag now that Crowley won't be playing. I would recommend upgrading him. To do this, you should downgrade one of your forwards, because there is enough value there this year to safely start with 3 non-rookies. Your rucks department is strong enough so that you shouldn't need coverage too early in the season, so you could downgrade Bellchambers to a rookie. I also think that Sheppard is a bit of a risk, but I haven't done my research here, you would probably know better than me.

      Thebighix · 20/03/2015 at 07:23

      Went with Mozz's feedback; downgraded Bellchambers for Caleb Daniel, moved Jack Steele into F6 and upgraded Hallahan for Rory Sloane. Had to try and tie it in with the bye rounds!!

      Whitecross is my big issue, if he doesn't line up round 1 he'll be out, but quietly hoping he does. Took what you said with Edwards and downgraded him for Saad, leaves with with $130k in the bank. Assuming Whitecross doesn't play, will use some of the cash to move him on. Jaksch is a risk I'll admit, but hoping he's a bit of a POD. Sheppard I'm hoping comes up alright, especially with Waters retiring plus McKenzie being out, but will watch carefully over the next couple of weeks.

      Cheers for your feedback, greatly appreciated!

        BomberSam · 20/03/2015 at 09:10

        Good stuff mate, sounds like you have quite a solid team now! Really like the Sloane selection, hard to believe he is only in just over 5% of teams. Shhh!

        Yep, you have plenty of money to make a few little tweaks, or in the case of Whitecross not lining up round 1. Jaksch is looking very good in NAB, definitely watch him. West Coast will need a bit of help back there, Sheppard should come up well.

      recon upgrading ellis-yolmen to hallahan?

        Marco_Polo94 · 19/03/2015 at 17:36

        Yolemen will accrue more value than NVB i reckon. I'd upgrade NVB, hallahan would be a big POD, looked good in NAB 1

        Marco_Polo94 · 19/03/2015 at 17:37

        Wait who are your rucks?

          Wombat_stew · 19/03/2015 at 20:08

          Big will minson and nic nat

Zed · 19/03/2015 at 16:57

This is more or less the teamI'll role with round one. Issue for me is solid rookies in defence. Not sure about people who have selected Ibotson, my concern is that Ross Lyon could give him a shut down role and therefore see low scores from him.

i think I'll wait for the dust to settle in the defence and look to make two early side way trades at the end of round 2.

I'll use the Hallanh and Newton to upgrade to Ablett, figures crossed his slow start to the season will see his price come down a little, also no certain start for round 1.

Looking for some help with my rucks, a little thrown off with the new scoring and how this will affect the pricing of the premium rucks.

Team is as below

    mick · 19/03/2015 at 18:31

    4 gun backs 4 gunmids 2 rucks 3 fwds gives 13 keepers is this about right

      Marco_Polo94 · 19/03/2015 at 19:48

      I think the big question mark there is "4 gun backs". No one really knows who the big scoring backmen are going to be this season, which is why people are going for mid pricer stepping stones. 4 gun mids is a little light imo. 13 keepers is about right tho

mick · 19/03/2015 at 18:40

13 keepers is that about right 3 backs or 4 4 or5 mids 2 rucks 3 fwds whats the communitys thoughts

    Don't mind this one Lucus, I personally wouldn't run with all three of Whitecross, Rich and NVB due to injury concerns, but it's a high risk/high reward option.

Suggestions appreciated

    Spifflicator · 20/03/2015 at 06:54

    The only two I don't really like are Luey and Boyd. Boyd is way too expensive and is going to spend a lot of time with ball nowhere near him, IMO downgrade him to a cheap rookie and spend it on Luey who I think will struggle to average 60.

JJFYZZ · 20/03/2015 at 13:16

Hello Team Jock,

It's that time of the year again. It's time to get aroused!!

Here's where I'm at currently with my team. What do you think? I like the structures but obviously the rookies are all over the shop inc Clarke!

Thoughts welcomed πŸ™‚

    keep an eye on sheppard as he's inconsistent. Ibbo is a better choice despite the injury risk.

This is my first year in supercoach – I'm not sure if I've got a decent team or if I'm way off!

DEFENSE: H. Shaw; L. Hodge; M. Jaensch; J. Newnes; N. Brown; H. Goddard (C. Delaney; A. Saad)
MIDFIELD: G. Ablett; S. Pendlebury; r. Gray; A. Swallow; L. Neale; B. Newton; I. Heeney; B. Boekhorst (J. Anderson; A. Vandenberg; N. Freeman)
RUCK: T. Goldstein; N. Naitanui (T. Read)
FORWARD: J. Bartel; D. Martin; D. Swan; T. Walker; C. Salem; M. Clark (T. Lamb; J. Steele)

I only have $1,800 left in my budget.

    very nice team there mate!

        Dion · 21/03/2015 at 13:18

        Thanks guys! What about the rest of the team? Enough premiums? Too many rookies and POD?

rob · 20/03/2015 at 20:52

hey guys just want to hear everyones thoughts on these two players
Gary Ablett: i read that hes unlikely to be fit for round 1 are people holding him or tarding him out?
and Jamie Mcmillian: ive seen a few teams with him was interested on the reasons why they have, him solid js?

    Jack · 21/03/2015 at 14:04

    Hey rob
    im not too sure im curious on these players too?

    Seaford Scouse · 24/03/2015 at 07:39

    Unfortunately Rob there seems to be a lot of smoke around Ablett, reports have this week as the crucial week for him to prove himself, concern is he is unable/unwilling to test the shoulder out either in overhead marking or physical simulation. I would plan for a team without him, and as much as this pained me initially it feels quite liberating once you’ve done it (my ruck and forward lines have both thanked me!) The key is to also make sure you have a plan to get him in fairly quickly, this led me to add a couple of mid-pricers to the mid line which I didn’t have previously but there’s other options to do it also.

    As for Jamie Mc, I admit I’m not a big fan SC wise and feel there’s better options available to us now but his js should be ok for the first 6-8 weeks I reckon as long as he doesn’t totally spud it up, injuries at North seem to have given him an opportunity so good luck with him I think a few will go him.

Hi All,

First time poster here, love the site and grateful for all the help provided in articles and comments. My team is currently as follows:

DEF: Malceski, Simpson, Kelly, Newnes, Saad, McIntosh [Hamling, Oxley]
MID: Rockliff, Pendlebury, Gray, Lewis, Griffen, Heeney, Boekhorst, Vandenberg [Ellis-Yolmen, Krakouer, Lambert]
RUC: Goldstein, Maric [O'Brien]
FWD: Bartel, Franklin, Swan, Clark, Hogan, Daniel [Karnezis, Lonie]

Left over: $275k

No Ablett as not convinced he will be playing in the early rounds based on recent news and too much cash to be sitting on the bench.

Any thoughts welcomed, I can't decide where to spend the extra cash!

Also, does anybody have any information on Oxley? I note that he has played both NAB games and seems to have scored half decent, but doesn't seem to be on anybody's radar?

    Worm · 21/03/2015 at 12:03

    I think Oxley is some chance to start the season, but may lose his spot when Seedsman is fit. Has been on 'Pies list a while so assume they see a future there.

    Jimmy Joe · 21/03/2015 at 21:55

    Your defence runs quite deep and I'm not entirely convinced we'll be starved of cheap options come round one. Perhaps you could downgrade Lumumba (or another def) to someone like Hamling or even Dalgleish to free up some coin. Then you could consider upgrading one of Cripps or Newton to bolster your mids, or upgrade Smith in the Rucks to a more reliable option. Just my thoughts but obviously they mean diddly squat at this stage of the year!!

    Not worth it to have Goddard in midfield, put him forward if your structures permit. For around the same coin you can have someone like Wines who is likely to exceed his value come season's end.

    not bad, if it were me, with strong rookies in the forward mabye downgrade higgans to a rookie, then put him in the backline instead of lumumber or suckling, this will get you money to go elsewhere, and gets out a little bit of risk, there only my thoughs

    Backline is a bit risky with a couple of second year players in Langdon and KK. Seedsman is still injured as far as I'm aware.Midfield lacking some quality. You might want to think about downgrading Hallahan and using the cash to upgrade 2-3 of Wells, Neale, Mitchell or Swallow. That's far too many risks to take into the season.

Gentlemen, ladies. Been slaving over this for so long, its my first attempt at supercoach after converting from fantasy and would greatly appreciate some feed back. Have cut some favourites over the journey. Put some less favoured in. Put the favs back in. And repeated that process till you see what i have here..

    Sarah · 23/03/2015 at 12:17

    Be careful with Lumumba. His SC history is not great! Love the midfield. JPK, Sidey and Lewis should all be great POD picks!

      white_line_fever · 23/03/2015 at 21:40

      thoughts on replacements then? higgins? also a burnman i know. adcock one i had in there previously.. Defense is so tough

        Sarah · 24/03/2015 at 07:18

        Depends how much money you have. To free some up I'd personally downgrade Saad in the forward line to Lambert (he was elevated to the senior list yesterday and likely to play early and through the midfield at the tigers). In the backline I like Kelly, or I hate to say this Jock, but I'd take Higgins over Lumumba. Alternatively you could try to pick a breakout player in that spot such as Kolodjashnij or Langdon. Good Luck!

    Marco_Polo94 · 23/03/2015 at 12:00

    Ooooo like the sheed PoD. Gone far stronger in defence than I have. It's a little light in midfield for my liking, might lose out on some points? Then again you'll probably make up for those points in your extra premiums elsewhere. Solid.

      Sarah · 23/03/2015 at 12:16

      Thanks Marco! I'm not scared about going lighter in the midfield. I only started with Gaz, Selwood, Watson and Beams plus rookies last year and finished just outside the top 1000. I'm happy with picking more rookies there cos not only do the rookies score more points than rookies on other lines, but they also make more money!! The midfield will be where I do my first upgrades.

      Thanks for your comments.

        Marco_Polo94 · 23/03/2015 at 12:19

        Funnily enough I've just looked at my team and I've only got 5 mids as well Ahaha. My team structures have been changing constantly this weekend! II'm either going to M6 with Gray Bartel Martin. Or M5 with Gray to swan in forwards..

          Sarah · 23/03/2015 at 12:23

          Same. For me Martin is sometimes Wines in the midfield! Round 1 rookie selections will ultimately decide my starting structure. Looks like a lot of people have given up on starting with Gaz! That shoulder ain't looking good!

            Marco_Polo94 · 23/03/2015 at 12:34

            He's not starting for me even if named, see him posting some low scores while he gets back to it (low for Gaz which will be like 100 still aha). Wines looks the goods, I actually like him over griffen. More so because most will go with griffen.

              Sarah · 23/03/2015 at 12:43

              Everyone has their preferences don't they! I prefer Griffin over Wines because of his experience and GWS's easier starting draw compared to Port.
              I see Gaz as a massive 'red vest' risk if he's named round 1. You don't know which Dees will show up, the average or the very bad, and so if the suns are able to wrap the game up early he'd be likely to be put in cotton wool given he hasn't played yet. Even if he isn't, I forsee him spending more time forward early in the season while he eases into it.

    Marco_Polo94 · 23/03/2015 at 12:23

    Pretty good mate. Risks are gift, Mitchell, Nat and Neale but all capable of coming off.

Mitch · 23/03/2015 at 12:26

Def – simpson, burgoyne,, higgins, s.edwards, h.goddard, d.mckenzie, a.saad
Mid – pendles, selwood, parker, heppell, dangerfield, van berlo, cockatoo, heeney, boekhorst, ellis-yolman, freeman
Rucks – goldstein, witts, nankeris
Forwards – gray, d.martin, swan, t.mitchell, m.clark, j.hogan, j.steele, c.daniel
47.3k left in bank
Would appreciate any help
My obvious concerns are where higgins will hold up. Tossing up between him and Newnes
Also in the midfield this year I decided to spread out cash instead of getting a ablett or rockliff
Other concern is Witts in the ruck. He is a risk but I do see him as Collingwoods No.1 ruckman. Problem is do you reckon he can hold up a 70+ average for the year
And the other is t.mitchell.. Is he in Sydneys best 22?


Marco_Polo94 · 23/03/2015 at 12:29

Keep chopping and changing from M5-M6 And F3-F4 respectively.

Anyhoo atm team is

Shaw, Kelly, Newnes, Goodes, rookies
Pendles, Fyfe, Selwood, Parker, Neale, Cripps, rookies
Mummy, Goldy
Gray, Bartel, Martin, Swan, Salem, Clark, rookies

Cheers. Think that's solid? Or should I either downgrade swan/mummy to upgrade Neale to a proven premo, or maybe an infield mid rookie to a Newton?

    James · 23/03/2015 at 13:11

    Quite light at the back for this year I think. Fyfe and Neale together could affect bye period unless you have a plan to counter that. I also think thats a lot spent in the ruck. Get Nic Nat in there and look at getting one more proven defender. Just my opinion your structure is a little different to mine. Good luck

      Marco · 23/03/2015 at 13:38

      Cheers mate. Yeh I’m backing in my rookies this season still. I prefer this structure than trying to guess who the best mid price defenders will be because there’s so many contenders. I’m definitely tossing up Mumford downgrade to upgrade goodes tho. Could then upgrade Neale to wines. I’m in two minds with mummy. Easy early fixtures and sky high ceiling means he could go BANG! However the other side of the coin is his scoring might be restricted due to the new ruck rules.

        James · 23/03/2015 at 14:27

        Yeah spot on can't see many benefits of over spending for rucks this year. Back in your rookies pal if it pays off you'll have more cash than most of us

        Sarah · 23/03/2015 at 14:39

        Upgrade Neale to Wines??? They're pretty much the same type of selection, both are breakout types… plus he has the last bye. If you're going to upgrade Neale at bye time you need to select a proven gun who's just had their bye.

          Marco_Polo94 · 23/03/2015 at 17:59

          Yeh I've gone mumford to Maric. Neale to Wines. Cheers guys!

    James · 23/03/2015 at 13:08

    Other thing is to replace Bartel with Swan and move Danger to Selwood?

    Marco · 23/03/2015 at 13:49

    I like the downgrade to swan to upgrade danger. Tho in saying that danger offers a nice PoD. Could downgrade to Bennell too as another option and upgrade to a Lewis. Not a fan of starting Rockliff. 1, high B/E, 2, round 11 bye, 3, beams seems to be outperforming him. Backs are solid for a D5 structure. Solid all round.

      James · 23/03/2015 at 14:33

      Rockliff is a gun and I honestly believe Beams won't effect him when the real stuff begins just as Pendles still killed it with Beams at the Pies. Rockliff will get his own ball he's never relied on others getting it for him thats why I believe once season proper starts we'll see the same Rockliff as last year

Evening all – first post re my side for the year. What do you think?

DEF : Simpson, Gibson, Newnes, Clurey, Hamling, Goddard (Saad, McIntosh)

MID : Pendles, Fyfe, Sloane, JPK, Gray, Griffin, Anderson, Heeney (Vandenberg, Ellis-Yolmen, Freeman)

RUC : Goldy, Maric (Read)

FWD : Martin, Zorko, Swan, Salem, Clark, Daniel (Lamb, Lambert)

$165,000 in the bank.

Appreciate any and all thoughts. Cheers!

    derek · 24/03/2015 at 13:39

    Clurey might be a dead weight like last year (I had him on my bench the whole year waiting for him to play a second game).

    I see you have Gray listed in MIDS, but I assume you will swing him to fwd depending on how the rookies perform.

    Team is fairly similar to mine, except I have Ablett instead of Slone.

    the rucks are locked!

      stevemorris67 · 24/03/2015 at 19:49

      Thanks Derek – Clurey's on my 'to be decided list' and I'll be looking to send Gray forward.

    throttlefinger · 24/03/2015 at 07:42

    Hey Sum. Welcome!

    Think you have a lot of strong choices. Too many midpricers for my liking. Hunt, Goodes, Daisy, Jono, Jetta and Hale are a little too much. That's a little too much madness.

    Also, you should try to get more rooks in your back, mid and forward lines. They will generate the cash. Whitecross won't make Hawks 22. N Brown will make the Pies 22. Cockatoo is pricey. Would try to get Cripps in there. Cam Ellis-Yomen too. And Lambert has been elevated so that's a cheap DPP you can have in your forward line.

    Biggest area of concern are your rucks. My opinion is the combo of Giles and Gawn will hurt your team. Just not proven or consistent. At least get Goldie, Maric or NicNat in one of those lines. Of two of them if possible. Think you should have the money if you replace 3-4 of your midpricers with rookies.

    Hope this helps.

      sumyunguys · 24/03/2015 at 12:55

      Thanks for the input. Couldnt agree more…Rucks were a concern… and my fwd line is heavy in mids. Cockatoo may be pricey but will he be in ports starting 22?.

Rock-MAN · 24/03/2015 at 09:55

First time poster, long time reader:

Barlow, Jelwood, Priddis, Johnson, Pendles, JPK, Parker, or N.Jones?

Need 1:
Please assist.

    Omen · 24/03/2015 at 10:48

    You need 3 or 4 of them IMO.
    If I had to rank them in order of preference, I'd go…
    Pendles, Selwood, Parker, JPK, Priddis, Barlow
    Johnson – not in MID
    N Jones – pass

    derek · 24/03/2015 at 13:48

    Toss the coin between Selwood and Pendlebury, maybe Pendlebury slightly ahead as Selwood can get affect by the tag a lot more than pendlebury does.

      Rock-MAN · 24/03/2015 at 20:49

      I've got Sidey, GAZ, Lewis and Rocky.. Then 3 rooks.
      I can afford anybody. in MIDS

Sam · 24/03/2015 at 11:38

Ruck – Nic Nat, Leuenberger (Cox)

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated πŸ™‚

    derek · 24/03/2015 at 13:52

    Birchell I believe will play round 1, but he is a bit under-done, plus the Hawks play the Cats first up and they will lock him down for sure. he will be an upgrade option.

    Whitecross won't play round 1 and will be a good downgrade option later.

    I would put Crisp ahead of NVB at the moment.

    Nice forward line, but weak R2.

gatorman · 24/03/2015 at 13:05

hey guys would love to hear thoughts about my team

backs… newnes,, higgins,, vlaustin,,( oxley)
whitecross,, edwards,, goddard,, (saad)

mids… ablett,, rockliff,, pendlebury,, fyfe,, (vandenberg,, steele,, krakouer)
selwood,, rich,, cockatoo,, heeney

rucks… goldstein,, maric (cox)

fwds… gray,, martin,, swan….(daniel)
mitchell,, hogan,, lonie..(lambert)

please let me know what you think

    derek · 24/03/2015 at 13:45

    Vlaustin was in my original team, but I have watched him close over the NAB and I can't see him doing any better than 70-75 which means he is fully priced. Whitecross won't play round 1, but he should get a game fairly soon, I expect we will see him after round 5. You might want to have him as a downgrade option later.

    You don't have any recognised premiums in Defence, but you have certainly made up for it in the Mids & rucks. You have gone for gold-plated Rolls-Royce Midfield.

    I had T Mitchell on my radar early, but he hasn't impressed at all, I would consider him a risk.

    overall a good team, lots of points will come from midfield and rucks, just hope that your defence can do the job early on before you can get them upgraded.

    Avzmo · 25/03/2015 at 10:16

    It looks like you made this team a month ago, and are only now asking the question.

    I'd put a line through the following players.

    Whitecross, Ablett (you cant have that much cash sitting on the bench if hes not playing), Vandenberg (not elevated to senior list), Krakouer (same reason)

    Also not a fan of rocky, his price will drop, you get more bang for your buck with Beams, Cockatoo I think there are better options around his price, but if you want a rookie POD, go for it, Mitchell has underperformed early, I might target him as an upgrade target later should he perform.

Supercoack Kid · 24/03/2015 at 13:40

i think thats it, only concern is higgins, been burnt before by him

    derek · 24/03/2015 at 14:39

    the Bont instead of Swan…massive call

Benchwarmers · 24/03/2015 at 15:04

Just throwing this out there, but what does everyone think of Sam Naismith as the R3? Did alright in last NAB game backing Pyke up, could do that again depending how Tippett is coming along re injury. Currently have the Goldie/Maric combo, and with Naismith I cover all byes (11,12,13). Understand he costs a bit more than someone like Read ($150,000 to $110,000), but a scoring ruck on the bench generate enough cash??

    Avzmo · 25/03/2015 at 10:11

    I think the consensus for most people is to have two premium ruckmen to start the year, the third ruckman simply won't be playing. If one of the two ruckmen gets injured then you do a like for like trade, the minimal points and cash that the likes of a Naismith might make really won't help you in the long run.

    The cash generation that you have mentioned really only matters if your going to plan on trading him down later on, and is the lets just spitball and say $100-150k cash your gonna generate (and I think thats being overly positive), really going to be worth burning a trade on?

Tom · 24/03/2015 at 15:05

G'day lads, team is as follows…
Backs: Burgoyne. Shaw. Newnes. Higgins. Hamling. Saad (bench) Brown. Dalgleish
Mids: Fyfe. JPK. Dangerfield. Swallow. Neale. Wells. Cripps. Ellis-Yolman (bench) Heeney. Vandenberg. Miller
Rucks: Mumford. Goldstein (bench) brookesby (use for captains loophole)
Forwards: Gray. Martin. Swan. Salem. Clark. Krakouer (bench) Daniel. Lambert
Remaining cash: $190,000…thinking of using this to obtain Ablett when he drops in price but not sure…any thoughts?

    Ricco · 27/03/2015 at 23:46

    I would use the 190 to up atleast one of the premiums (Swallow, Neale) to another super prem to go alongside Fyfe, maybe Pendles or Selwood. Im not too keen on Burgoyne, i think there are better options at his price. Ablett will drop in price early too i think, it may take a few games to reach his form of last year. You should be able to trade him for another super prem even with little money in your bank by that stage.

Teddy_Ruxpin · 24/03/2015 at 15:26

Need some thoughts.
I feel like with the rookie choices in the mid I may need to downgrade van Berlo and upgrade one of the kids down back.

DEF: Shaw, Hibberd, Newnes, Brown, McIntosh, Goddard (Hamling, Saad)
MID: Ablett, Pendles, Fyfe, Selwood, Van Berlo, Cockatoo, Anderson, Heeney, Ellis-Yolmen (Vandenberg, Krakouer)
RUCK: Goldy, Naitanui (Read)
FWD: Deledio, Goddard, Swan, Mitchell, Clark (Salem, Lambert)

$101K in the bank

    Avzmo · 25/03/2015 at 10:06

    TO be honest I think the backs at around the 200k price range aren't going to offer any more than the ones at the 100-130k price range. I think though that you have a problem that when you only have 4 premo mids and one isnt going to be playing, you are going to have problems early, get rid of one, cos 3 premo mids playing in the early rounds just won't cut it.

      Teddy_Ruxpin · 25/03/2015 at 11:12

      Thanks for the feedback Avzmo – Time to do some research on these backs a little more and get some money for an upgrade.

Would like to sneak Gray for Bennell and Mumford for Maric but only have 2k in the bank and not sure where to make sacrifices. Could drop Kelly to Kolodjashnij or Newton to a cheaper rook but not certain. Please help.

    Avzmo · 25/03/2015 at 09:59

    Vandenberg and Krakouer haven't been elevated the the senior list so scrap them for a start.

    Unfortunately you can't have everything, you've got a midfield where Cripps is your M8, your really not going to be able to afford those other options. In my mind get rid of a midfielder, maybe Wallis, to upgrade your two others. Gives you more opportunities to get midfield rookies into your side.

      JoeWoolcock · 25/03/2015 at 17:12

      Thanks mate, not sure why but like Jock I've had a gut feel that Wallis could be something special. But it is a risk and he is unproven so downgrading is probably smart. I'm dropping him to Heeney to get that spare cash

    Josh · 25/03/2015 at 12:51

    I really like this team…

    as far as freeing up cash to get Gray in your team…. I would downgrade Newton to Anderson, should score similarly and frees up money…

    might also look to downgrade kelly to a cheaper option then use that money for Gray and swapping Wallis to Wells or Rich

Looking to shed about 50k to get WhiteX up to B.Goodes as I dont trust back rookies.. preferrably without losing GAJ!

    Josh · 25/03/2015 at 12:41

    I would look at downgrading WhiteX to N.Brown as he is locked for round 1 and WhiteX still may not be named…

    Also look to downgrade Bont to Swan or someone potentially a little cheaper that will likely be more consistent

    and instead of Ibbo & B. Goodes you can look at players like C. Pearce, J. Macmillan or T. Hunt all for similar prices that should score roughly the same

      Tristan · 25/03/2015 at 13:03

      Downgrade bont to swan? Swan is priced higher than Bont???

Thoughts on Higgins to the backline and Edwards out and bring in a FWD rookie?

    Mozz · 25/03/2015 at 15:09

    Definitely put higgins to the backline and edwards out!! There are many more fwd rookies that will score well

      AdamK · 25/03/2015 at 15:33

      Moved Higgins Back
      Took Edwards Out
      Added Hogan Forward

    JoeWoolcock · 29/03/2015 at 13:03

    Gutsy pick in Roughead there Haydos, a risk but I like it. I'd take out Boekhorst as it looks like he's been pipped for a starting berth and put CEY on the field. Brayshaw and Whitecross won't play round 1 either.

    Redgumwon · 26/03/2015 at 14:08

    My defence is pretty similar to yours. I think move on Brown out of your defence. He won't score that well to make you much money. Punt on a rookie like Edwards (Ess) Delgleish (Ess) Goddard (St Kil) McIntosh (Rich) or maybe Dick (Carl)

    Move Bennel and Newton out and upgrade to a Pendle's (Coll) or premium and another cheaper rookie maybe?

    Like the structure Sam, and good to see that there's someone going without Gray, Bartel or Martin! Stacked backline looks good, watch for vests on Heeney and Anderson if you're starting them. Bellchambers unproven this preseason so I won't touch him but with Naitanui in you might need backup.

Hey all, first time poster, long time lover of Jock (man, does that sound wrong)

Def : Shaw, Johnson, Newnes, Higgins, Kolodjashnij, Hamling, (Edwards, Saad)
Mid : Ablett, Pendlebury, Fyfe, Parker, Griffen, Cripps, Andersen, Ellis-Yolman (Heeney, Vandenburg, Lambert)
Ruck : Goldy, Minson (Cox)
Fwd : Gray, Martin, Bontompelli, Salem, Clark, Hogan (Goddard, Lamb)

Absolutely stuff all in the bank ($6700)
Thinking of downgrading Kolodjashnij and upgrading Vandenburg to Wells.
Reasonably happy, all rookies likely to be moved dependent on Rnd1 teams.
Tried to maintain a small amount of DPP (eg. Goddard in fwd, Lambert in mid) but not a massive focus.

    James · 27/03/2015 at 13:30

    Rate the midfield highly in fact have gone for the same structure in the mids. My advice would be with some late emerging value down back downgrade Hibberd (ASADA) and upgrade Bellchambers (ASADA) lol. Other than that good team I reckon

      Cliffy · 27/03/2015 at 16:03

      Cheers James,

    Ben · 27/03/2015 at 14:43

    Some risky picks there … I think B Goodes still needs to be elevated from the rookie list so watch out there. C Pearce will likely get tag duties with Crowley out = risk. L Brown (crows?) probably will not score highly and there are probably better options available. Other selections are ok, although overall I think your Defense is a bit skinny. Keep an eye on those rookies and make sure they are named rd 1.

    You should try use Dual position players like Gray and D Martin up forward, probably better options than KPPs like Westhoff.

    Rucks are better – Goldy is a solid pick, Bellchambers is a bit riskier but there are plenty of worse options.

    Hope this helps a bit – I'm no SC veteran!

      Ben · 27/03/2015 at 14:56

      B Goodes just got elevated, so good pick πŸ™‚

Dan · 27/03/2015 at 15:14

help me out here which combo would you go with
rich, bontempelli, newton, sandilands
neale swan, minson, miller
neale swan maric, miller

the other conundrum is macrae griffen or bennel and griffen or macrae bennel risky but big POD

    Frank · 27/03/2015 at 16:52

    Neale, Swan, Maric, (Touk?) Miller and Griffen and bennel, Macrae may get tagged while Bennel won't, with Prestia still in and Gaz on the verge of returning

James · 27/03/2015 at 15:14

Treloar OR Wines? Seriously cannot decide. GWS have an easier start to the season which has me leaning towards Treloar although Wines is nealy 40k cheaper??

    Frank · 27/03/2015 at 16:50

    Wines is gonna have a breakout season

    JoeWoolcock · 27/03/2015 at 20:58

    Mate I'm tempted by Treloar too. He'd certainly be the POD of the pair and if he can still find the pill with Griffen there he's actually the better buy in my opinion.

      James · 29/03/2015 at 21:25

      Interesting you say that I believe with Griffen getting the tag most of the time Treloar will still get plenty of the ball although so will Ward, Shiel, Greene and even Coniglio WOW what a midfield they have

NoGoddardsClub · 27/03/2015 at 16:38

Hey Community, Would love to hear your throughts on this team:

Def: Shaw, Newnes, Lumumba, Goodes, McIntosh, Saad (Hamling Goddard)

Rucks: Goldstein, Maric (read)
Fwd: Gray, Bartel, Martin, Swan, Salam, Clarke (Hogan, Byrne)

$195 in the bank

saving some coin in the bank to turn swan into ablett depending on how Swan goes in the first 5 or so games
I know Vandenburg isnt upgraded yet but I'm hoping he will soon
I think Priddas is a must, he barely fluctuates in price with his consistency and WILL be a top ten mid this year once again
Not too happy with lumumba/Goodes in the backline and it is pretty light on overall

Would love to hear your thoughts

Still not sure about labumba , nab scores have been impressive, will be a last minute call, also liking t mcdonald in that position. Potential breakout, and not a Wayne ker.
Also still tossing up on starting God. Obviously all my cash has gone into this team, only 12k left, if there are enough backline rookies named R1 then Goodes could be downgraded to then turn JPK into ablett. It's all going to come down to team selections, and where certain players are named as to the final structure.

As for a plan to get Gaz if I don't start with him. 3 years in a row I have lost a premium mid to LTI or suspension within the first 6 rounds. There's my plan. Plan for the worst , sideways trade my downed mid to GAJ if he's lokking ok, otherwise pick another.

Had to edit, I wrote shaw when it's actually Kelly. That's also on the cards if I downgrade Goodes to an on field rookie, I turn labumba into shaw

Team with $65k left in the kitty…

Def: H Shaw, J Gibson, Lumumba, B Goodes, Adam Saad, Hamling, (N Brown, K McIntosh)
Mid: Fyfe, Selwood, Griffen, Bennell, Swan, Rich, Cripps, Ellis-Yolmen, (Anderson, Heeney, Touk)
Ruc: Goldstein, Leuenberger (Cox)
Fwd: R Gray, Bartel, D Martin, Bontempelli, J Cameron, M Clark, (Salem, Lambert)

Toyed with Ablett but think a slow start into the season may allow me to get him cheaper. Relying on some guns returning to form in Rich/Swan, Cameron/Clark bouncing back and Bontempelli/Bennell stepping up to consistent stars.

Thinking Leuenberger for Bellchambers perhaps depending on Tuesday's outcome.

Not fully sure on Bontempelli at the moment in case he battles with a tag and Brown/Goodes still looks a bit shaky to me but am stumped for options here.


    dognino · 28/03/2015 at 17:23

    Imo way too many smokies for 1 team. I limited myself to 1 in each line in labumba, Griffen and swan , and even that's too many so I got rid of labumba . Your banking on too many PODs to perform consistently

Was helping (or hindering) the kids with their team yesterday and came up with this… just thought I would post it as I haven't seen another like it (probably for good reason)

Shaw, Gibson, Birchall, Newnes, Higgins, Goodes (McIntosh, Saad)
Ablett, Wells, Rich, Wallis, NVB, Cripps, CEY (Heeney, Miller, Lambert)
Goldstein, Maric (Lucey)
Gray, Bartel, Franklin, Martin, Swan, Clark (Hogan, Steele)

Think it is probably better than it first looks, with most of the best expected cash cows included and hopefully enough keepers.
Criticism welcome (and expected)!

    Stickman · 29/03/2015 at 14:00

    You backline, ruck and forward line are impeccable and you definitely have enough keepers, but your midfield is very weak. Midfield premiums are the most consistent from year to year and you need a few more premiums there. Maybe downgrade a defender and a forward to let you to upgrade two of Wells, Rich, Wallis, NVB and Cripps.

eDdIeG98 · 29/03/2015 at 13:22

Def: Shaw, Gibson, Newnes, K Kolodjashnij, Goodes, Saad (McIntosh, Goddard)
Mids: Pendlebury, Fyfe, Selwood, Dangerfield, Wines, Rich, Cripps, Heeney (Vandenberg, Ellis-Yolmen, Miller)
Ruck: Minson, Nic Nat (Read)
Fwds: Gray, Martin, Zorko, Salem, Clark, Hogan (Lamb, Lambert)

Not sure whether I should upgrade the Rucks

terry · 29/03/2015 at 13:58

Righto people, would like to have your thoughts on my team as is sits now.

DEF – Simpson, Shaw, Hibberd, Houli, Ibbotson, Saad, Brown, Dalgleish,
MID – Ablett, Watson, Gaff, Wells, Rich, van Berlo, Newton, Miller, Freeman, Krakouer, Lambert,
RUCKS – Mumford, Naitanui, Bellchambers,
FOR – Harvey, Goddard, Swan, Tom Mitchell, Clark, Hogan, Steele, Daniel, C

    Worm · 30/03/2015 at 09:11

    If you are going to start with Bellchambers as back-up ruck, I would swing him forward and put Cox, Read etc on the bench. Too expensive to have not scoring at the start of the season.

    Charlesy · 30/03/2015 at 12:12

    I agree with Worm mate and I also think you are too light on for premium mids. But your defence is set so this team may work. Good luck

@Seekersupacoach · 29/03/2015 at 17:32

DEF: Gibson Taylor* Newnes B Goodes Dalgleish Saad (Oxley McIntosh)
MID: Ablett^ Fyfe Parker Griffen Neale** Sheed Cripps (Vandenberg^^ Miller Lambert)
RUC Mumford Goldstein (O'Reilly)
FWD Deludio Bartel Martin Swan Salem Clark (Hogan Steele)

*D2 I am still tossing up if I go with Murphy or Johnson (need to downgrade Dalgleish to do so, too)
^Ablett…urrrrggh the Ablett dilemma! He's currently in but could come out and be replaced by J Selwood, JPK OR Pendles
** Neale could still be replaced by Rich, Wallis or even Jong for some cash generation.
^^I'm quite confident that Vandenberg will be upgraded from the rookie list and if so will play more ground time than Heeney or Anderson. If he isn't I'll replace him with Heeney.

Finally I will be looking to trade in R Gray at about Rd 5 at hopefully a cheaper price than what he's starting with.

I'd love any feedback, thanks

James · 29/03/2015 at 21:27

Thoughts on Sam Mayes guys?? With Rich fit and playing across half back Mayes should slot back into half forward where Brisbane will need someone to step up and this guy has the class to do so!

Beerz09 · 30/03/2015 at 13:26

Leading into the first lockout i would love some feedback on my current team:

DEF: H. Shaw, J. Newnes, K. Kolodjashnij, R. Henderson, A. Oxley, J. Hamling, (K. McIntosh, A. Saad)
MID: G. Ablett, N. Fyfe, J. Selwood, D. Beams, L. Parker, C. Judd, P. Cripps, I. Heeney (A. Vandenberg, C. Ellis-Yolmen, T. Miller)
RUC: W. Minson, I. Maric (T. Read)
FWD: R. Gray, D. Martin, D. Swan, C. Salem, M. Clark, J. Hogan (T. Lamb, K. Lambert)

If Ablett doesn’t play: Pendles in for Ablett – upgrade Minson or Maric to Goldstein ($12,100) ???

ryanros_ · 30/03/2015 at 18:28

Hey guys, would really appreciate any feedback

DEF – Hibberd, Taylor, Newnes, Higgins, McDonald, McIntosh (Dalgleish, Goddard)
MID – Fyfe, Lewis, Treloar, Boak, Steven, Lumumba, Cripps, Ellis-Yomen (Anderson, Heeney, Miller)
RUCK – Goldstein, Nicnat (Read)
FWD – Martin, Swan, Adams, White, Salem, Clark (Hogan, Byrne)

Dalgleish or Saad?
Should I take out Treloar/Boak/Steven/Lumumba and use the cash on a better FWD than White/Salem?
Also I'm not convinced by any of the rucks…


Stickman · 30/03/2015 at 23:04

Shaw, Newnes, Adcock, Geary, Brown, Hamling (Goddard, Saad)
