This index will definitely come in handy as the season goes on, well done!

Community, I’m trying to gauge what a good score for round 1 was, I got 1925 but with the right players on the field from my bench it would have become 2082. Is this a good score compared to others? I was disappointed with many of my players, including Higgins, Shaw, Newnes, Griffen, Selwood, Hallahan, Cripps, Maric, Bartel, Salem and Dusty. I believe that all these players have another level of scoring to go up to, and only hope they do sooner rather than later.

Lastly, what are peoples trade strategies? Any trades this week?


theres nothing you really need to trade unless your carrying injuries with your players


I believe 2110 was the cut off for top 10,000. So that's probably your par score this week. Your premiums in that lot will come good, stick by them. It wasn't the best round for high scores.

The rookies are there to make you money. If they spud up again and you believe there is a better option, look at trading them. Agree with Ethan for trading this week only if you have an injury (Rockliff)


I missed out by 9 points


The reason I got into the Jock Reynolds community was to improve my Supercoach. One thing I have learnt is that it is all about structures. Yet after a poor round for most punters, I am surprised at the panic and keenness to trade after last week's scores. I got a good score (2217) which puts me in top 1,000 and while I was disappointed with some individual scores, I am just focusing on my structure and how I can trade my way through the year to having the best performing premiums at the end of the year. I won't achieve that if they consider trading some of my keepers based on one poor round. You should only trade your keepers if they are injured/suspended. If they lose value it doesn't matter if you intend to keep them.


Exactly! Well said Dingo.


Agree with you Dingo. The only trades people should be looking at after round 1 is Rocky, Sidebum and maybe rookies that may have caught your eyes. Have faith in your selections community and dont chase last rounds scores.


Spot on. Couldn’t agree more


Shitful first round community! A couple I banked on went missing, and not selecting my captain and sort my bench properly really cost me so,only ended up with a score of 1875. think I could have pulled in an easy 2000 though had I been a bit smarter.

Lookin forward to round 2, and seeing more of these rookies tear it a new one…


Given the bad start to 2015, and for some of us a write-off already, maybe it is already time to turn our attention to 2016. In fact, the pre-season speculation can be more fun than the real thing. For 2016, we are already spoiled for choice: Def Smith, Shaw, McKenzie, M Brown Rook Rook Mid: Fyfe, Parker, Wines, Liberatore, O'Meara, Petracca, Rook Rook Ruck: Premo, Kreuzer
Fwd: Ablett, Rockliff, Gray, Dangerfield, Ruck/Fwd DPP, Rook

Already we are faced with the dilemma of how to fit them all in! Can we really have Libba at M4 and O'Meara at M5?
With the coaches playing our guns forward, we will be drooling over the DPP of our favourite guns. Is 4 premo's already too heavy?


We may have to leave Danger out. Chris Scott has already turned an A grade small forward in Stokes into a B Grade midfielder. Maybe he will turn Danger into a half back to take the place of Kelly, Enright and Mackie (all retired). He will be earning the combined salary of the three, so why not? Lock him in our backline for 2017!

I had to leave out Pendles. New Collingwood Coach Eddie McG has said – why would I risk the only decent player I have in the midfield where he might get hurt? Better to put him in the backline where all the action will be this year. Another lock for our backline in 2017.

Woohoo Feeling better already


don't want to trade but I have both rocky and sidebum so I need some advive on premiums


Hey rob!
Awesome name I’m a Robert too lmao
I would recommend Sloane for one
He was my main premo pod pick for this year and looked great on the weekend I think he will play consistsnt all year and played all 22 games last year so if ralitivly low risk plus has very low ownership


thanks muddiemoose it hurts to use trades on premium sideways trades in the first round


Has to be done though with both those guys out for too many weeks. You can't afford to have that cash sitting idle on the bench.


Easy mate, bring in wines from port

Sub a fwd/mid and bring in tex walker, I am guessing will bank you about 350k, makes for a 1 trade upgrade soon, so you are effectively getting 3 premo for the price of 2


already have wines but tex could be a good pod at least till the bys


Was tossing up between griffin and wines at m5 before season and I went for griffin. Seriously thinking of correcting that this week. Poor showing from griffin against saints and great effort from wines in wa. Will need to downgrade Jellwood to Lewis to finance but will pick him up again later. My basic idea is use 4 trades over next two weeks before prices change then hold until R7. Am I over reacting or did others see enough in griffins performance to suggest he may not be the keeper we thought?


Dumping Griff for Wines seems to have plenty of backers at this point but caution should still apply whenever you consider swapping perfectly healthy premos with another, especially after just a solitary game.

If you make the move and Griff busts out a 130 this weekend and Wines delivers an 85 you'll be spewing.


Very true … I will be spewin if that happens. Maybe need another day just to cool off but can’t help being drawn to a player like wines … Mostly spewin I didn’t back myself to take him first up. And it’s hard to barrack for someone who walked out on their club … We’ll see but I reckon I might pull the trigger.


As Higgo said in the podcast don't go chasing last weeks points. It will drive you mad.




To all those thinking of jumping on wines. Sloane. Lewis from griff. Pls don’t. They had a good week and I had them. Murphys law says if u all get on, they go shit. Pls stick to griff.


i reckon i will just go miller to vandenberg this week. Avoided carnage and feel for ppl with injury so early. Didnt start gaj or rocky which feels good now.

Only ‘premo’ i cant hang my hat on yet Is jack newnes. If you get off him and spuds up could be a great pod not having him. Might give him another week but is on notice!

Best supercoach site on world wide web is jockreynolds, thanks to everyone on this site.


Miller could still generate you some cash. He's a rookie with a game under his belt.

Does anyone think it would be worth having big Jonathon Giles as the bench ruckman this year?? Surely The big Belly wont be able to go it alone for Essendon the whole season! Any ideas?


Far too much cash to invest in a 'maybe' at this stage. Would need to see his role and how he performs when he's on the bubble first, if and when he gets an opportunity, assuming TBC doesn't get injured again.


I wouldn't just yet IMO. No reason to think he has to score well. Would like to see him in action for a couple games.


ch7 news had TBC an injury concern for this week, hopefully will pull up


nice try…

Ive had to trade rockliff and I now have 253k in the bank. What do I do with the cash? Im concerned about my decision to have lumumba in my side. Starting to think it was a stupid choice. Do I trade or can he actually replicate his nab challenge performances?


Gee, there really is no love for Lumumba. Lot of people wanting to jump off already. I have him and will stick with him.
Remember, his priced to average 78. He played a poor game, got tagged and still managed to score 73. I honestly think that there are more important thngs to worry about this early in the season than Lumumba at present. But that is only my opinion.


No. Everyone is getting off the gift because they realise he was no good at the pies and will be no different at dees. Have a good look in the mirror before u pick overrated nab inflated scorers. The one time you MUST listen to crouch. ” he bloody shit”


G'day community. I was wondering people's thoughts on DG maric > Bellcho (due to the new price changed and then griff to Tex, pocketing the 350k for an ug from cockatoo > Lewis. Thoughts?


*new scoring which will lead to price changes


Give him another week, it will be a better gauge to see if he can improve. If his current scores stay around the same he wont drop drastically in price after round 3. In saying that I have him too and am watching and planning if he continues to disappoint.


Chefs Arsse fc my comment was meant for you regarding lumumba.

Chefs Arsse fc

Cheers kano.


I need to trade out Rockliff & Jaksch. Who do you guys recommend to bring in?

Cyril is Delicious

I’m a massive fan of Jordan Lewis for a swap with Rocky!

Cyril is Delicious

And it would give you more money to upgrade Jaksch


This Index is a great idea, it will become quiet handy this year.
Wondering if TAT will be returning this year?


If it's tit fot TAT it's highly unlikely.
