The Scout Report – Round 15

Published by Jock on

Barron Von CrowWOOHOO! One more week of byes to go.

Just one more week and we’ll be back to having every single one of our players back available to us and no more of this Best 18 nonsense going on. Howdy folks, I’m Barron Von Crow and this is the Round 15 Rookie Scout Report.


Its Thursday people and it’s a bye week, so that means we’ve got another Thursday night game in the works to make our planning all the more annoying and it also means two things. Firstly, it means that the lockout occurs after team announcements on Thursday, so you won’t be able to reverse any trades, so you’ll need to get them locked in early. Secondly and even more excitingly, since it is Thursday night football it also means CoachKings is open to play right at home from the comfort of your living room…or bedroom…or toilet. Basically, wherever you enjoy watching your footy from in your house, you can play CoachKings from there on Thursday! So make sure you enter your team and are in the running for some great cash prizes.

Now, let’s get into it.


Tom Phillips

SC Price: $117,300 | AF Price: $179,000 | CoachKings Price: $4,200

FEATURED COACHKINGS CONTEST: Saturday, Carlton VS Collingwood.

Round 14 Stats: 19 disposals, 6 marks, 6 inside 50’s, 3 tackles, 1 goal 3 behinds, 87 SCPoints, 92 AFPoints, 109 CKPoints

Phillips is a MID/FWD and on the bubble this week, so I imagine every fantasy football player in the country will be looking at bringing him in. He was fantastic getting the ball forwards for the Pies and if it wasn’t for some inaccuracy in front of goals he probably would have had a triple digit score. Perfect downgrade option this week (for Barlow?) and an easy pick for CoachKings this Saturday.


Jade Gresham

SC Price: $273,700 | AF Price: $296,000 | CoachKings Price: $5,000

Round 14 Stats: 16 disposals, 3 marks, 8 Inside 50’s, 1 goal, 82 SCPoints, 67 AFPoints, 102 CKPoints

The Round 14 Rising Star nominee, Gresham also kicked one of the goals of the year to help the Sainters get over the line against the Cats. He was very quiet early in the year, but has improved his scoring just a tad over the last month or so, going from scores in the 40-50 range to scores in the 60-70 range.



Mitch McGovern

SC Price: $305,100 | AF Price: $300,000 | CoachKings Price: $6,600


Round 14 Stats: 13 disposals, 7 marks, 5 tackles, 1 goal, 85 SCPoints, 81 AFPoints, 90 CKPoints

A career best game for McGovern, fantasy footy wise, as he eclipsed his previous best in Supercoach of 73, which he had against both Gold Coast and Hawthorn. His forward line marking, particularly his ability to take a contest mark is what is making him stand out a bit in a very talented frontline for the Crows. He’s down to being in 4.7% of sides, but has a BE of 49, which he should break, but it’s at the pointy end of the season now where you’ll need to seriously think about upgrades if you still have blokes like this playing post the bye rounds.


Connor Menadue

SC Price: $257,700 | AF Price: $259,000 | CoachKings Price: $4,000

FEATURED COACHKINGS CONTEST: Friday, Port Adelaide VS Richmond

Round 14 Stats: 19 disposals, 7 marks, 6 tackles, 2 goals, 130 SCPoints, 103 AFPoints, 122 CKPoints

Connor ManWasHeDue….for a good game finally produced for us! Ha! Did you see that? I made a joke out of his name and tied it into his performance on the weekend… OK, now that you’re all recovered from the bouts of laughter you know doubt went through, Menadue was absolutely fantastic against the Lions, producing a round saving score for a lot of teams with a big 130 SCPoints and statistical highs in most categories.  Still lots of handballs and uncontested stuff in there, but he made every one of them stick, which is a bit of a problem he has had previously. BE is -19 for the moment, so ride him for the next few weeks and hope he can pop above 300K.


Sam Kerridge

SC Price: $440,200 | AF Price: $449,000 | CoachKings Price: $7,000

FEATURED COACHKINGS CONTEST: Saturday, Carlton VS Collingwood

Round 14 Stats: 22 disposals, 3 tackles, 81 SCPoints, 69 AFPoints, 74 CKPoints

Hello Sam, my old friend. Your time in my Supercoach side may be at an end. He again scored 81 SCPoints from 22 possessions (17 handballs though) and as good as he has been for us this year, he’s just short of being a premo player and with Leigh Montagna just sitting a short hop away, it just makes too much sense. I love ya Sammy, you’ve served me well, but it may be time to send you on your way.



Jacob Weitering

SC Price: $347,500 | AF Price: $316,000 | CoachKings Price: $6,500

FEATURED COACHKINGS CONTEST: Saturday, Carlton VS Collingwood

Round 14 Stats: 11 disposals, 4 marks, 3 tackles, 70 SCPoints, 51 AFPoints, 69 CKPoints

An OK game from Weitering, with the 70 SCPoints, which apart from his big 121 score in Round 11 is actually his highest score since Round 5. His BE is now up to 83, which he can beat, we’ve seen him do it, but it might be the end of the road for Weitering in 2016 with the need to upgrading him becoming apparent.


Tom Ruggles

SC Price: $305,200 | AF Price: $299,000 | CoachKings Price: $5,100

Round 14 Stats: 21 disposals, 9 marks, 3 tackles, 91 SCPoints, 96 AFPoints, 75 CKPoints

Has been on a good run over his last 3 games, averaging 81 SCPoints. His BE is just 23, but the Cats are on the bye this week, so his price won’t move up until Round 16 is done and dusted.


Sam Collins

SC Price: $254,900 | AF Price: $258,000 | CoachKings Price: $6,700

Round 14 Stats: 18 disposals, 6 marks, 4 tackles, 8 1%ers, 126 SCPoints, 81 AFPoints, 145 CKPoints

The Bye Round Saviour! An absolutely fantastic game for Collins, one that the 30.3% of teams that own him would love to have seen, especially at this time of the year. He went at 94% efficiency with his 18 touches and he has now produced 2 scores of 100+ in his first five games. His BE is pushed way down to -30 now, so after Fremantle have their bye he is going to make some serious cash.



Mason Cox

SC Price: $278,700 | AF Price: $260,000 | CoachKings Price: $6,500

FEATURED COACHKINGS CONTEST: Saturday, Carlton VS Collingwood

Round 14 Stats: 10 disposals, 3 marks, 4 tackles, 7 hitouts, 2 goals, 72 SCPoints, 60 AFPoints, 89 CKPoints

Just the third time in his career he’s been in double digit disposals, with all 3 times being 10 disposals. Those 72 SCPoints would have been a very welcome addition to a lot of SCers forward/ruck lines however. His BE is 48 this week, so I would probably hold on to him for another week and get the byes out of the way first before moving him, unless you have a nice upgrade trade in mind.



Jacob Hopper – Hurt his back and will be out for 6 weeks. Likely means the end of AFL footy for him for 2016 as I expect he’d play out the rest of the year in the NEAFL.

Corey Wagner – Just his second game and it was slightly better than the first, but still nothing outstanding from him, apart from his tackling, which was a highlight against the Crows. He had just 9 disposals with the 9 tackles, for 49 SCPoints and 60 AFPoints. On the bubble, which is a rare thing these days, but North have the bye this week, so he’ll keep another week.

Darcy Tucker – The second quiet game in a row for Tucker, having less than 10 disposals in his last two games for 45 and 46 SCPoints. Just simple really, needs to find more of the pill if he’s to score better.

Josh Smith – Probably one of the best games he’s played for the Pies, he had 25 disposals and 4 tackles for 93 SCPoints and 96 AFPoints. He had had a quiet few weeks prior to that, so it’s good to see him get some nice scores back on. His disposal numbers were never the problem, his career low is 17, just had lots of uncontested handballs in there. He evened up the kick/handball ratio a bit better on the weekend too.

Ben Keays – It was probably a good result for Keays to get 42 SCPoints from just 6 disposals considering he scored 39 from 13 disposals in Round 13. BE is 51, which he’ll probably struggle to make, but Brisbane have the bye this week. Could maybe downgrade him for Phillips, but you won’t make a ton of cash doing that.

Eric Hipwood – The Lions were probably very happy with young Hipwoods game on the weekend. He had just the 7 disposals, but kicked 3.2 in there too, so for a team with goal kicking problems, that’s a good result. Just the 57 SCPoints from that, which is probably his ceiling as a fantasy footballer at the moment.

Josh Schache – Only 8 disposals, 4 marks and a goal, but had 75 SCPoints from it, which is a very good result for him.

Matthew Hammelmann – Only 10 disposals and 5 marks, though he did take a couple of contested ones in there. Had 3 clangers too, so his score was pretty bad at just 29 SCPoints. Remember though, at this point of the year, if you’re downgrading you’re probably just looking for bench cover and not cash generation, so he might have his uses if he sticks around.

Jarrad Jansen –His second solid game in a row, with 16 disposals and a goal for 64 SCPoints. He can do better, as evidenced by his 98 upon debut, but it’s certainly better than the 35 he scored in his second game.

Rhys Mathieson – Big game for him, having 24 disposals, 3 marks and 7 tackles for 89 SCPoints. Had scored in the 50’s his previous two games, so is it just a big game for the youngster, or a new trend for him? He had his first price rise, so he’s only up to 174K, which is still enough to maybe consider trading him in, but Phillips is there at a cheaper price and has also had his bye.

Jayden Short – Has been better since his recall, again topping the 10+ disposal mark with 12. Had 58 SCPoints, which isn’t great, but better than what he was producing before.

Liam Sumner – Not a total surprise of a score from Sumner with just 39 SCPoints from 11 disposals. He’s scored in that range plenty of times before and will probably keep doing it for the rest of the season.

Ciaran Byrne – A better result for Byrne, who had scores of 48 and 49 in his Round 11 and 12 games prior to the bye. He had 15 disposals, 8 tackles and 64 SCPoints, but fared better in AFL Fantasy where he had 82 AFPoints. Like his teammate Weitering, it’s time to move him out if you have him.

Matthew Kennedy – What I said I feared would happen last week did end up happening. Kennedy scored 67 on debut, but had 3 goals in there and just 11 disposals. Last week, Kennedy had just 6 disposals, no goals and scored 35 SCPoints. It’s only his first year, so that’ll happen with youngsters and the Giants are probably just giving him a small taste as a reward for some hard work in the seconds.

Lincoln McCarthy – Did a fairly good job to get involved, helping the Cats get back into the game with 3 3rd quarter goals. He also had 18 disposals and 5 marks for 69 SCPoints and 85 AFPoints, but a massive 7 clangers killed his chances a bit.

Peter Wright – Had one of his higher scores of the year with 70 SCPoints from 9 disposals, 4 marks and a goal. Should continue to hold his place in the side, even with the Suns having some blokes returning from injury.

Ryan Davis – His streak of good games came to an end, producing his lowest score of the year last week with just 32 SCPoints. Definitely the time to get rid of him if you still have him in your side.

Kaiden Brand – Back into the side after a 5 week layoff and he was OK, with 13 disposals and 7 marks for 60 SCPoints. JS will still be questionable though.

Tom Doedee – Continues to improve as the year progresses, gaining a season high 23 disposals and 8 marks across half back.

Joshua Deluca – He had 21 disposals, 5 marks and 4 tackles as the Peel Thunder lost to the Swan Districts 118-79.

Sam Reid – Back to the NEAFL for Reid, who had 29 disposals, 7 marks and kicked 2 goals.

Gavin · 30/06/2016 at 10:02

BVC Reid has a bye as well.

Rick Grimes · 30/06/2016 at 10:09

I'm still shaking my head with disbelief at Connor Menaduds score. He's been sitting on my bench since week 1. I imagine a lot of people quite rightly traded him out weeks ago. Another ton this week could make him the ultimate pod!

    Gavin · 30/06/2016 at 10:12

    Dreaming if you think he will ton up again. That was absolute luck and they did play the lions. He will go back to his 20 -40 scoring output.

      Rick Grimes · 30/06/2016 at 11:52

      You're almost certainly right Gavin. But stranger things have happened this year. Menadue suddenly becoming SC relevant would be right up there tho.

        Lachy · 30/06/2016 at 15:19

        then why are you talking about him

          Rick Grimes · 30/06/2016 at 19:21

          Why not. Are you the SC police?

        nuts · 30/06/2016 at 19:25

        Go the Poo

    pod · 30/06/2016 at 11:06

    I'm with you Rick, obviously Hardwick likes the boy, until last week no one new why. Menadue can play just needs to believe in himself. He didn't get much of the pill last week but was so effective / good sign he can play. Go the POO..

Kev · 30/06/2016 at 10:10

Kerridge out for me this week. Can get Merrett or go for value in Buddy or pod in NRoo?

Chill · 30/06/2016 at 10:25

Thoughts on taking Nick Riewoldt instead of Deledio? I have been slammed these bye rounds due to injuries, need to do something different now.

    Clarky99 · 30/06/2016 at 10:36

    I am contemplating the same thing. Ill probably take Lids as he should be more consistent from here on out, but Roo is a very interesting selection. He has Tonned up in 8 of the 12 matches he has played, but what's turning me off is the stinkers he has also produced, 2 scores under 50.

      Dice · 30/06/2016 at 16:44

      I'm wanting nick riewoldt but im bloody $1000 short. Those 4 game he hasn't reached 100, 3 he had been injured and the other was first game of the year

    pod · 30/06/2016 at 10:57

    YES why is it such a dilemma? Big Nick is a legend of the game, the Saints are firing, heaps of games at ES, and the bloke can play with a bullet in his guts..

    Rick Grimes · 30/06/2016 at 11:57

    Do it. He gets enough touches to rack up the big scores, even when not kicking goals . Such a big motor on the bloke. What's the ownership like? I have Lids but would equally pump for Saint Nick.

AnthonyC · 30/06/2016 at 10:34

Love the Sound of Silence reference you snuck in there!

    HOLLA · 01/07/2016 at 00:18

    Thats good

Gibbs · 30/06/2016 at 10:55

Get in as my last fwd Montanga or Buddy?

    pod · 30/06/2016 at 10:58

    I reckon Buds about to go off, Joey safe (soft) choice

    milesdeutscher · 30/06/2016 at 11:07

    Montagna any day. More reliable and owned by less (this week anyway).

Alex · 30/06/2016 at 10:55

Hi community

Who do we think will be best out of ZMerrett and Montagna for the rest of the season? I have Wells and Barlow but I think I will just swap Barlow out and hope for the best with Wells.


    Clarky99 · 30/06/2016 at 10:59

    Joey is probably the Safer option. Merrett has been really good but he may just fade out a bit, he has had a heavy load.

    milesdeutscher · 30/06/2016 at 11:04

    I'm trading out both Wells and Barlow this week. We always planned to trade Wells out, and i can't afford to have Barlow sitting on my bench for a month. Personally, i'd go for Montagna. I don't trust any Essendon players and Joey is a reliable scorer who should average 105+ here on out.

      Rick Grimes · 30/06/2016 at 12:00

      I'm not sure why you would trade Wells. If he's fit again, he's a top 5 forward. I also planned on shipping him out at some stage. But I hadn't factored on him being so good. If injured, by all means. But a fit Wells is going about as good as anyone.

        Alex · 30/06/2016 at 13:04

        Cheers guys. I agree, Wells has had great output this season. What is everyone's thoughts on Boyd now?

      Lachy · 30/06/2016 at 15:23

      no.. we didnt always have a plan to trade wells out..

Clarky99 · 30/06/2016 at 11:00

Should we actually be getting rid of Wells??? His scores don't lie, but i can see why there is doubt on keeping him.

    Rick Grimes · 30/06/2016 at 12:01

    Injury concern would be the only reason I can see for the trade. His scores make him a premium in my book.

    pod · 30/06/2016 at 12:44

    Hold him unless critical. I traded him out when first injured, BAD move, I'm not into re-buying players but this season Wells could change all that, very tempted to grab him again

Mick · 30/06/2016 at 11:01

Do I get in Sloane or Ablett?
Sloane has a smooth run home against teams outside the top 8.

    pod · 30/06/2016 at 11:01

    ha ha

      Mick · 30/06/2016 at 11:08

      shut it pod

        pod · 30/06/2016 at 11:09

        no you shut it Mick, this is a forum, you put it out there, I laughed at the suggestion, get over it.

          Rick Grimes · 30/06/2016 at 12:01

          One is the Son of the God. The other is a very good footballer.

    Grahame Lebroy · 30/06/2016 at 14:25

    Funny stuff from you two

milesdeutscher · 30/06/2016 at 11:01

Thoughts on Treloar community? Undervalued and back with a 119 last week however Collingwood's draw worries me. Need to fill my last midfield spot.

    Rick Grimes · 30/06/2016 at 12:02

    I almost took him last week, then backed out. He looked like he'd spud early on – then went bang. I reckon he's a great option and I'll pull the trigger this time. A 115+ average from here on out I reckon

    hedski · 30/06/2016 at 12:37

    Getting him in for Libba this week

      milesdeutscher · 30/06/2016 at 14:18

      Yep i'm with you guys. Full premo now bar Hall (who i think will find his form back in the mid). Decided on Wells > Sloane. I got trades so might as well use em!

Big G · 30/06/2016 at 11:12

Jesse Joyce or Mitch Brown from WCE as a downgrade option? Buddy or Zac Merett?

Dean · 30/06/2016 at 11:14

I would go Menadue. He can only get better !

One Touch Wonder · 30/06/2016 at 11:19

Just giving everyone the heads up. I'm looking into the possibility of trading Barlow to JKennedy (WCE) this week and sticking the VC on him tonight. Everyone knows that he is a Flat-track Bully and scores big at home and against weaker teams. I read that WCE have won 26 of their last 27 against teams outside the top 8. In most of those games kennedy will kick a fair few.

His next 6 games. 4 are at home! Home games are against Essendon, Kangas, Melbourne & Fremantle.

His two away games in that time are against Carlton & Collingwood.

You know what i'm seeing here community! Is it SHARK MOVE number 3!

    pod · 30/06/2016 at 11:29

    like it, like it alot, and your description of JK is accurate to the tee

    MY TWO CENTS · 30/06/2016 at 11:32

    Not really a shark move as a shark move is to trade out someone who is blitzing and is still playing.
    Barlow is injured so it is a good trade.

      One Touch Wonder · 30/06/2016 at 12:02

      Like Wells to Walker?

    The Master · 30/06/2016 at 12:39

    Solid choice and POD. I have other trades this week but I have put JK on my watchlist for next week if Wells is still out.

      One Touch Wonder · 30/06/2016 at 15:25

      Get him now and stick the VC on him tonight!

        The Master · 30/06/2016 at 15:44

        Love your work One touch Wonder, I am tempted, a nice POD and could go beserk tonight. I will consider how it effect my other plans and make a decision. I am trying to conserve trades.

    mickthefish · 30/06/2016 at 16:31

    Brought in Kennedy a few weeks ago for this very reason. Had him as captain when he scored about 160 and was happy. Not so much with his 49. Vice captain tonight, I think we might get over 200 from him.

    Derek · 30/06/2016 at 16:57

    Did you ever see Shark-nado?

    they were good, 1, 2 & 3!

TRIGGER HAPPY · 30/06/2016 at 11:28

Top notch as usual BVC.
Manwashedue – straight out of the top draw – cue brucey "clever" and "oh that's special".

    One Touch Wonder · 30/06/2016 at 15:25


Cam_H · 30/06/2016 at 11:57

Great column as always!
Just for your lists, Sam J. Reid has dpp status (Fwd/Mid) and has the bye this week.

GoHawks · 30/06/2016 at 12:23

Who to VC this week?

Im thinking Josh Kennedy (WCE) or Priddis.

Thoughts please.

    pod · 30/06/2016 at 12:37

    Josh K if weather good

    The Master · 30/06/2016 at 12:42

    I'm going VC Ablett into C Hannebery

tom · 30/06/2016 at 12:27

Is Kerridge and Keays to Montagna and Joyce good trades?

    GoHawks · 30/06/2016 at 12:58

    Yes, sound trades

ethan · 30/06/2016 at 12:31

Thoughts community
Libba out for Hannebery
Grimley (bench) out for Montagna
Keays out for Phillips

    I N Pieman · 30/06/2016 at 13:31

    Tick Tick Tick

hedski · 30/06/2016 at 12:38

Good trades

Chill · 30/06/2016 at 12:45

Dahl still 2-3 weeks away which means round 18. That's is well into the ass end of the season for SC. I'm struggling to get 18 on the park this week, should I sell?

    milesdeutscher · 30/06/2016 at 15:15

    Hold i reckon. He's a gun. I'm trading him sideways for Green/ Hall depending who's worse in a couple weeks. As long as you have cover this week you should be fine. Heard he's making a speedy recovery.

Beagz · 30/06/2016 at 12:50

Unbelievable that nobody is mentioning Nankervis. Number 1 ruck at Sydney for at least the next 6 or 7 games. Averaging 78 and looking at home playing AFL level. Cox –> Nankervis gives you 100k and a better scoring player.

    Moustachio · 30/06/2016 at 13:22

    $278,700 – $226,600 = $52,100

Alex · 30/06/2016 at 13:08

What does everyone think about Boyd? Indefinite suspension and 5K is big for a drunken biff. He must have been bad.

    Bolton's Blues · 30/06/2016 at 13:09

    Hes getting paid millions, lets face it, 5k isnt exactly going to burn a hole in his pocket.

    milesdeutscher · 30/06/2016 at 15:14

    When i read Boyd i sh*t my pants but luckily you're talking about Tom! Phew!

GoHawks · 30/06/2016 at 13:08

Can Coachkings be played on an IPad from home?

My phone is too dumb to play (not a smart phone)

Stevo · 30/06/2016 at 13:09

Worth shifting Wells to finish off MID with Ablett? I believe Wells is a top 5 FWD, but have no other way of generating sufficient cash to nab Ablett this week.
The fear is that with quite a low b/e for Rd15 – Ablett will only get more expensive…

    Beagz · 30/06/2016 at 13:19

    Who will you be upgrading/Downgrading to do the trade?

      Stevo · 30/06/2016 at 13:29

      Hey Beagz,
      It'll be: Wells & Keays > T. Phillips & Ablett

        GoHawks · 30/06/2016 at 13:45

        I like the trades.

        Well's body is a concern for the remainder of the season, but his form is very good. Ablett has just got his body right, and he is killing it again (the Gary of old).

        Keays to Phillips is a great trade, more points, and more cash to spend.

        Beagz · 30/06/2016 at 15:01

        Do it

          Stevo · 30/06/2016 at 16:46

          Thanks guys. Much appreciated!

    smart as s · 30/06/2016 at 20:06

    Ablett will explode this week imo, we can all see this coming!

      smart as s · 30/06/2016 at 20:08

      watch out for sc record pts 🙂

Tommy · 30/06/2016 at 13:17

Which 3 to get rid of out of Davis, Kerridge, Wells, Greene?

Roger · 30/06/2016 at 13:28

Would downgrading hall to Phillips be a smart move or dumb move? I'm thinking if hall is going to go big much from here on outl that making 380k from it could be good for upgrading to a premium off another rookie.
Yeah or nah?

    Derek · 30/06/2016 at 17:40

    i've got him on my watchlist as a possible F7 pickup next week if i see him getting any decent midfield time.

FWD carnage · 30/06/2016 at 13:37

Hey team,

I have Barlow, Dalhaus & Wells all in my lineup. Which one goes out & who for? I'm thinking Montagna with the run home (already have Dusty).

Chuboi · 30/06/2016 at 13:40

Relevant fwd line premo options. I have hall, lids, deledio, montagna, barlow, wells (trading barlow)

    Clarky99 · 30/06/2016 at 13:48

    Nick Riewoldt or Zorko (Next week)

    GoHawks · 30/06/2016 at 13:49

    Dusty, Buddy or Josh Kennedy.

    I have all 3, but Dusty would be the best.

GoHawks · 30/06/2016 at 13:46

Davis is the first to go.

Im thinking Wells becuase of the ??'s over his body, and Kerridge (has done his job, never a keeper).

GWS have a very good run till the end of the season, and Greene tends to cash in when GWS get wins.

Ryan · 30/06/2016 at 14:03

Bring in McVeigh for B. Smith or wait for JJ?

    Grahame Lebroy · 30/06/2016 at 14:10

    McVeigh is a solid option, JJ carries alot of risk for mine

      I N Pieman · 30/06/2016 at 15:11

      I'm super keen on grabbing JJ. But I think I want to see a game from him first

    Moustachio · 30/06/2016 at 15:33

    If JJ named, he go BANG BANG.

    First bang is his boot connecting with the ball, second is the hammy.

Grahame Lebroy · 30/06/2016 at 14:09

Anyone think Yeo can come good second half of this year? Or is he average at best??

    I N Pieman · 30/06/2016 at 14:17

    Will probably give you some good scores & just as many bad ones. Not in my calculations

johnny_z · 30/06/2016 at 14:30

Is Boyd worth the pod move over Simpson?
Notice that most top 100 teams have Simpson over Boyd…

Ben · 30/06/2016 at 14:31

Hi. Team is:

Shaw, Docherty, Simpson, Rance, Bartel, Laird, (collins, brand)

Dangerfield, Ablett, Hannebery, Selwood, Rockliff, T. Mitchell, Priddis, R. Gray (Jansen, Trengrove, Gresham)

Gawn, Goldstein (Whyatt)

Martin, Zorko, Lids, Wells, Merrett, Montagna (Phillips, Cox)

7 trades left. At that stage where I could do one more luxury upgrade or just hold. If anyone could share their thoughts of what they'd do, I'd be very greatful. Thanks

    matt · 30/06/2016 at 17:21

    U can't afford luxury trades with 7 left. Hold.

      Craig · 01/07/2016 at 13:27

      Robbie Gray to Pendlebury would be a valid trade. Your team looks great!

    The Master · 01/07/2016 at 13:31

    Definately hold, team looks great and you have some backup. now wait for trouble.

Banga · 30/06/2016 at 14:37

In what order should i be getting rid of these 4: Davis Kerridge, Greene, Wells

    Ben · 30/06/2016 at 14:44

    In the order that you mentioned i reckon.

    Its abit of a toss-up between Kerridge and Greene though. Wells is a keeper, and Greene still has a shot at being a keeeper imo

Tom · 30/06/2016 at 14:39

Trade in treloar or Sloane this week or Neale next week after his bye?? (Will have petracca play this week if I get Neale next week)

Clarky99 · 30/06/2016 at 14:49

I am now convinced on taking N Riewoldt over Lids.
Look at Lids run home compared to Riewoldt. Lids plays 5 top 8 teams including Cats, Hawks, Dogs plus GWS and Sydney away.
Nick only plays 3 top 8 teams which are Sydney, Dogs and North, all at Etihad. Good opportunity for him to cash in there.
Anything i am missing here?

    Moppieface · 30/06/2016 at 15:06

    Yes, Delidio is a better SUpercoacher.

      Multi · 30/06/2016 at 21:33

      Gotta say thats a damn good answer

Hoot · 30/06/2016 at 14:51

i read the comments.. "Kerridge to X & Libba to Y..

Wouldn't it be a better option to keep as many players on the field this week (22 ideally) so your best 18 scores as high as possible?*

* assuming an overall contender

What about blowing everyone away with the Wells and Barlow trade this week to secure 2 extra 100's for rd 15?

Ethan · 30/06/2016 at 14:51

Struggling to decide who to get rid of between Kerridge and Tippa

Kerridge probably will score more
but tippa allows me to have freedom by swinging suckling between my defence and forward

which one should i get rid of?

    Hubba · 01/07/2016 at 00:43

    Get rid of both

Tommy · 30/06/2016 at 14:55

Get rid of Greene or Wells this week?

    In the Nick of time. · 30/06/2016 at 15:47

    Are they the least of your worries? No rookies to cull?

      Tommy · 30/06/2016 at 17:21

      After these trades, Tracca will be my only one on field, in which i plan to trade him for Hannebery next week.

        Bobby Singh · 30/06/2016 at 18:38

        Keep both.

liam · 30/06/2016 at 15:27

6 TRADES help would be appreciated
MID-Ablett,R Gray,Pendlebury,Danger,Hannebery,Ward,Neale,Sloane,(Jansen,Trengove,Stewart)

Broad likely to play this week?

John · 30/06/2016 at 15:39

Guys need some help with my team. I've already done two trades, going Davis to Phillips and Kerridge to Lids. Need help with the third trade. Don't want to get rid of wright at the moment because he will still rise in price. Some help would be great cheers.

Def: Shaw, Laird, Simpson, Rich, Rance, Collins (Hipwood, Ruggles)

Mid: Danger, Parker, Selwood, Libba, Neale, Sam Mitchell, Pendlebury, Ablett (Snadden, Phillips, Mathiseon)

Ruck: Gawn, Goldy (Grimley)

Fwd: zorko, Deledio, wells, Martin , Matthew wright, petracca (rose, cox)

Grantc · 30/06/2016 at 15:49

Hi have 10 trades left thinking of getting rid of Kerridge, Barlow & Davis for Phillips, Sloane & Delidio do they sound like good options or is their something better out there that I maybe missing.

    James · 30/06/2016 at 16:04

    I've done Kerridge to Deledio and Davis to Phillips too. They seem to be really good options. The Barlow to Sloane trade also sounds good as Sloane is a POD.

    Derek · 30/06/2016 at 16:49

    arousing stuff. nice trades

pod · 30/06/2016 at 15:59

Another cat amongst the pigeons.. Maric returns (514K) B/E is 208, projected to lose -$50k this round. Could be an awesome inclusion in 2-3 weeks. Any ideas or thoughts?

    Grahame Lebroy · 30/06/2016 at 16:32

    He might be decent value when he drops in a few weeks. But don't reckon he will score as big as the elite rucks. Martin would be as good value and he can score big. Or u can be boring like me and sideways Nic Nat to Goldy in a week or two

liam · 30/06/2016 at 16:10

any one i can get for 491 in fwd other then Montangna

    pod · 30/06/2016 at 16:12

    JJK, Put the VC on him, instant gratification for tonight. Bang bang welcome.

Youngy · 30/06/2016 at 16:48

Great write up Barron!

Community thought on these trades…

Barlow to Pend (via Dusty Dpp)
Davis to Treloar
Kerridge to Merret
Leaving me with a nice 20 on field
Leaving me with full premo… including the stinkers rich and smith in D

hedski · 30/06/2016 at 17:01

I'm holding Barlow for now.
Trades are B.Smith to Doch
Libba to Treloar and Kedge to Skinner (def/fwd).
Will flip Sucklingpig down fwd next week and use Barlow to loop Suckers and Petracca and Skinner in def to loop Rug and Collins until Barlows back or I move him on.

    Moustachio · 30/06/2016 at 17:30

    Ueber is cheaper than Skinner. Would not drop Kedge during bye round, wait til you don't need his score. At 127 BE Treloar is not going to run away from you.

      hedski · 30/06/2016 at 22:34

      Na tash can't loop with Collins.
      Bris got heapsa late games.
      Kedge gone.

    Nick · 30/06/2016 at 18:59

    Jump on Silvagni?

      Tim · 30/06/2016 at 19:20

Decided to escape to Phuket to see out the bye rounds with total focus. Working a treat, although just tried a shark move (more a bomb really) on a Japanese tourist…. Works better in SC!! Good luck to all, another great read BVC.

Steeeve · 30/06/2016 at 17:32

Still thinking about trading Wingard out for Montagna. I have 13 trades left and plan to go into finals with seven (this trade would leave me with six).

Shake n bake · 30/06/2016 at 17:37

So how many players do we have playing this week?
I should have 20 with tucker to be traded.

    pod · 30/06/2016 at 17:42


    Steeeve · 30/06/2016 at 18:08

    Bloody 17.

    Unless I pull Higgos danger maneuver

    Derek · 30/06/2016 at 18:19

    loaded up with 20 this week before trades. hoping for a big week.

    Only trade will be to bring in Phillips, not sure which of the rookies to get culled though. petracca, Trengove, Menadue, McGovern, Lee or Gresham?

      Shake n bake · 30/06/2016 at 19:11

      Went a week early on Phillips Derek thought he's js was pretty good so tucker to Doch this week. Lee was named for saints.

    hedski · 30/06/2016 at 22:35


Terry · 30/06/2016 at 17:42

Having a tough one this week. Struggling to field more than 16 blokes.

MID:Pendles, Gaz, DANGER, SELWOOD, Gray, Steven, Libba, Trengove, (WARD, STEWART, MATHIESON)
RUCK: Gawn, GOLDY, (Loersch)
FWD: Joey, Kerridge, Hall, Wingard, Petracca, ZORKO, (BARLOW, WYATT)

Wanting to prioritise Phillips this week so Barlow will probably get the chop for him. That gives me 16 players. This is where I hit the roadblock. I cant justify trading players like Libba, Kerridge or Adams, because they are all playing this week. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated community.

    Terry · 30/06/2016 at 17:47

    Sitting on 12 trades with 129k as well.

    pod · 30/06/2016 at 17:50

    Start with Barlow to Phillips, then Brand to McVeigh and maybe one more depends on how much cash your holding & how many trades left

      pod · 30/06/2016 at 17:53

      Mathieson to ??

      Terry · 30/06/2016 at 17:59

      Im probably going to jump on Docherty instead of McVeigh. Would still have 190k after these two trades and I could potentially trade Libba to Hanners or Kerridge to Dusty.

        Tim · 30/06/2016 at 18:08

        Stewart to Philips and then Barlow to Merret me thinks

          Terry · 30/06/2016 at 18:32

          Gonna go with Brand over Stewart purely based off my assumption that Brand will be out next week

Nathan Broad or Jack Silvagni? Taking into consideration job security and possible scoring output.

    Broad. No idea what Silvagni's scoring output will be

TomasR · 30/06/2016 at 18:26

Who to trade out this week out of Wells and Greene. Wells is the better player but there are concerns over job security, and Greene has a very good run home, which he usually scores very well in. Thoughts?

    TomasR · 30/06/2016 at 18:47

    Meant to say concerns over staying on the park*

James · 30/06/2016 at 18:27

Guys need some help with my team have one trade left to use this week who should I use it on? please really need help.

Def: Shaw, Laird, Simpson, Rich, Rance, Collins (Hipwood, Ruggles)
Mid: Danger, Parker, Selwood, Libba, Neale, Sam Mitchell, Pendlebury, Ablett (Snadden, Phillips, Mathiseon)

    Grahame Lebroy · 30/06/2016 at 19:47

    U don't really need to use it. Unless Collins, Wright or Tracca have high BE (don't know) I would sit tight for now. Libba could be upgraded soon. How many trades and cash u got?

    nuts · 30/06/2016 at 20:05

    Snadden, with a name like that he's got a go

      James · 02/07/2016 at 09:34

      Lol well I've got 7 trades left

        James · 02/07/2016 at 09:35

        With around 240k cash

Murray · 30/06/2016 at 18:31

Thoughts please community. Have 12 trades up my sleeve
Trade options are

Sit and hold as I have 20 players available this week, do have an easy game in my cash league. OR

Trade Libba for dusty Martin, Barlow for Docherty and kerridge for McVeigh, 3 trades. This would just put me off full premo.

OR Trade Barlow for dusty Martin and Adams for McVeigh, 2 trades

Which option? 1, 2 or 3?

    James · 30/06/2016 at 18:47

    Up to you but with 12 trades in hand i wouldnt be getting mcveigh, i would trade barlow to dusty, and adams to docherty. with 12 trades you can afford to downgrade a rookie this week if you cant afford him. Then upgrade kerridge and libba for ward and pendles next week

      Murray · 30/06/2016 at 19:30

      Hi James thanks, why wouldn't you consider mcveigh

    Tim · 30/06/2016 at 18:48

    Kered · 30/06/2016 at 18:56


      Gavin · 30/06/2016 at 18:58

      Kerridge BE is 102

        how much do you think he will lose

          Andrew · 30/06/2016 at 19:25

          Max 10-15

        I'm trying to decide to VC Priddis to Abs C or VC Abs to Pendles?

        Hoot · 30/06/2016 at 19:37


        Davonaise · 30/06/2016 at 20:34

        Wow when was I rude to you? Seeing as you know what I was saying anyway how is this at all a problem for you? Nice name btw your missing the ' otherwise known as your dick in the word don't.

        You know that little pecker of yours you call Blush and insert it into Baby

          Dont Blush Baby · 30/06/2016 at 20:56

          Tried to read that ,not sure if its your intellect,drugs or alcohol cos it doesn't make sense ? But if your a Bomber supporter it must be drugs

Gavin · 30/06/2016 at 19:23

VC Priddis to Abs or VC Abs to Pendles? Help?

Clark · 30/06/2016 at 19:25

Joey Montagna or Nick Riewoldt?

Ricky · 30/06/2016 at 19:28

Is Daniel Wells to Nick Riewoldt a stupid trade? Might potentially be going from one injury prone player to another.

    Southern S · 30/06/2016 at 19:41

    Seems a little nuts considering Wells should be back after his bye this week and he's averaging 106. That saying if he keeps missing games………….

James · 30/06/2016 at 19:33

Guys should I upgrade wells or not

    Hoot · 30/06/2016 at 19:36

    Extra player on field this week if you do

    Multi · 30/06/2016 at 21:44

    Depends how many trades you have and how many others still need to be upgraded.
    I will be keeping at this stage

@HeiroDAB · 30/06/2016 at 19:33

Still talking ROOKIES……

Nathan Broad? no mention, even though posted a reasonable 66 for a rookie and has got the nod again? whats his JS like? is he a worthy pick up, and I know you will say….. give him another week……….. but what if i cant??? Would ya?

    @HeiroDAB · 30/06/2016 at 19:35

    also speaking of Nods…….. old silva got the Nod? whats his JS going to be like going forward. is he going to play FWD like in the #2's? god almighty the blues need a decent FWD.

      The Beard · 30/06/2016 at 19:37

      It's thrown a spanner in the works hasn't it. I was just thinking then I could pull the trigger on AMT to Broad or now maybe Silva and upgrade Hall & Kerrige to Lids & Merrett…

      Spose I can always wait a couple weeks.

    Kev · 01/07/2016 at 11:30

    Rookie rule still applies for me, wait till they're on the bubble. Having cover at full premo is still important

Tom · 30/06/2016 at 19:39

Should i really be getting rid of Wells this week or next??? Whats stopping me is how good his scoring has been.

    @HeiroDAB · 30/06/2016 at 19:46

    why would ya? last 3 weeks AVE 129. 106 AVE overall?

    hes one of the most consistent in the game. who you guna bring in who's in better form??? if he drops in coming weeks i would pose the question…… but NO. big fat NO.

      Gavin · 30/06/2016 at 20:01

      Not only that he's had almost 24 days off by the time he plays next week

Hoot · 30/06/2016 at 19:40

Who dropped DANGERFIELD?

    Gavin · 30/06/2016 at 19:44

    I did……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….NOT!

    @HeiroDAB · 30/06/2016 at 19:47

    Traded him for Menadue…….

      Gavin · 30/06/2016 at 20:01


    Hoot · 30/06/2016 at 20:08

    Same hehe

      nuts · 30/06/2016 at 20:09

      who did you bring in?

        Dean · 30/06/2016 at 20:19

        Father Chistmas

    Moustachio · 30/06/2016 at 22:48

    I did, pretty sure someone around here said it was a SHARK MOVE

Dean · 30/06/2016 at 19:42

The only one trade I am certain about is Adams to Docherty this week.

Im not sure whether to go:- Barlow to Merrett or Barlow to Montagna & Hall to Franklin

Dasha · 30/06/2016 at 19:44

great write up barron, lids or montagna?

Bobby · 30/06/2016 at 19:46

Is 4 trades left after next week scarily low if i am full premo?

    marcus · 30/06/2016 at 19:50

    I'm in the same boat bobby it is low but with a bit of luck we wont run out at the end of the season

      Dean · 30/06/2016 at 20:21

      Your in deep shit. Start looking forward to 2017

John · 30/06/2016 at 19:55

Rich to docherty?

    nuts · 30/06/2016 at 20:01

    Cmon really?

Nick · 30/06/2016 at 20:15

Could someone please tell me if you can add and delete players from your watch list whilst using the SC app.

Thanks Nick

    Kev · 30/06/2016 at 20:42

    In the players section, swipe right on the player and tap the gold star.

    To remove a player go to the watchlist and do the same thing. Exit the screen and come back to it, the player will be gone

Derek · 30/06/2016 at 20:51

Wow. Without NicNat, Priddis doesn't look like getting near the ball. He looks uninterested.

    Dont Blush Baby · 30/06/2016 at 20:59

    Why did I put the VC on him ?

      Derek · 30/06/2016 at 21:09

      I did to. He is playing better second quarter

        Millicent · 30/06/2016 at 21:23

        Derek, I thought you would know better. He really misses NitNat, however he is now on 50 SC points at half time . He may get about 125 points. Surely Abba is the best VC this round?

          Millicent · 30/06/2016 at 22:09

          Well Derek, 92 at 3/4 time. Looks like you have selected a good VC. May end up with 140+, especially as Essendon tire.

            Derek · 30/06/2016 at 22:36

            Won't be enough

        Derek · 30/06/2016 at 21:29

        51 pt second quarter for Pridids.

      Dont Blush Baby · 30/06/2016 at 21:09

      He's alive, a goal helps I suppose

        Dont Blush Baby · 30/06/2016 at 21:24

        62 at 1/2 time , with a bye round I will take 130'sh

          Derek · 30/06/2016 at 23:12

          122 is a half decent score, but probably go with Ablett

            Shake n bake · 30/06/2016 at 23:15

            I put vc on him to, is it enough??

              Dasha · 30/06/2016 at 23:37

              id expect ablett and pendles to probably get more, especially gaz, dusty is in good form also so could be worth the risk

hedski · 30/06/2016 at 22:39

Ok so I've got $120k in the bank and Zaha is LOPPED AT THE NECK nek week.
He's gonna lose cash tonight! !

    Moustachio · 30/06/2016 at 22:47

    Yeahhh I made that call the first time he scored 50-ish. So disappointing.

      hedski · 30/06/2016 at 23:35

      Started well.

Westy · 30/06/2016 at 22:49

Have I stuffed up this week.
Brought in Kennedy to take on the Bombers but didn't bring him onto the field. He's sitting on the pine with an E on him. (Kind of like Ben Cousins only different.).
Am I going to be able to get his score? (I have Zorko on the field.)

    Derek · 30/06/2016 at 23:10


      Westy · 01/07/2016 at 06:31

      What a relief, he stunk it up more than AMT! Not. 🙁

johnny_z · 30/06/2016 at 23:13

Interesting seeing the SuperCoach leaders article in the herald sun, "talking flags". His got 7 trades before making any this round and will be trading out Barlow. So he'll be left with 6 for the rest of the year.

Starting to think my rank of 223 (620 points off) with 8 trades after this round still gives me a good chance.. Think people in the top 1000 or so losing hope, better keep pushing. Looks as though the guys up the top have burnt most their trades.

Good luck!

    Moustachio · 01/07/2016 at 06:12

    He started without Libba 😮 I am prettier than this man.

Gavin · 01/07/2016 at 01:07

Is Hall a keeper? Ride him out like I would my old lady or find something new that's more enjoyable and toss him to the curb?

    Steeeve · 01/07/2016 at 11:59

    Misread your question, yes you should leave your wife.

fan · 01/07/2016 at 04:03

Bring in Martin or Hannebery now or wait a week and get Neale?

Tom · 01/07/2016 at 06:04

Should I trade Daniel rich?

    Westy · 01/07/2016 at 06:30

    In or out?

    Who to?

    I N Pieman · 01/07/2016 at 10:02

    If your going to Shaw Doch or Simmo then do it. If not don't bother

tophawk · 01/07/2016 at 09:28

Wacked the VC on Priddis last night. A score of 122 is a frustrating one. An extra 10-15 points would have made this decision easy. Do I bank the 244 points on offer here and run, or go with Ablett as captain?
If I go with Priddis and Gaz gets 150 I will end up with 394 points combined. If I went with Gazza (C) it would be 422. For the sake of a modest 30-50 additional points IF Gazza fires, it makes me lean towards grabbing Pridda's score. The downside risk is greater than the upside reward IMO.
Talk me out of it!

    Gazpron · 01/07/2016 at 09:50

    I have taken Priddis' score.
    One influencer may be number of players vs your league opponent…if you have less, possibly need to take the higher risk strategy and roll the dice

    hedski · 01/07/2016 at 09:55

    Go gaz toppa.
    I'm vcing dusty into gaz.

johnno2908 · 01/07/2016 at 10:21

I have traded out Daniel Rich many times, only to reverse trade every week. Is it really that bad to have him? He is the 16th highest scoring defender for the year and 21st highest average for the year. If you already have Shaw, Docherty, Simpson, I do not think there is a consistent enough defender to replace him with? I also have McVeigh and Laird as my other Defenders with Ruggles and Collins on the bench. I would go to Boyd, but JJ back worries me. I am tempted to take the risk and go JJ this week as I have a couple of rookies he should outscore, and I would rather have JJ than a Rance type.

    Kev · 01/07/2016 at 11:27

    An 84 average isn't the worst, especially in defence where Shaw, Doch, and Simmo aside, there is a lot of variation week to week.

    I'd keep him for now.

      Derek · 01/07/2016 at 11:43

      the big thing going for Rich is that he is a genuine midfielder who has Defense status. Playing in the midfield there are days when the ball will follow him and he will go 100+.

Millicent · 01/07/2016 at 10:22

I need help with the emergency loophole community particularly from someone who has successfully utilised the emergency loophole. I have never tried it before and I am a little nervous about it.
In my forward line I have Martin and Deledio playing tonight. After that game I have the following players who have been selected – Hall, Montagna, Phillips, Petracca, and McGovern (Ade) with Wells not playing this round. I read an explanation last week but still unsure. From my list, I realise I would put Wells on the field but who do I put on my bench as my emergency? Surely both Martin and Deledio who are playing tonight will score well. If McGovern or Phillips (Coll) were playing early perhaps I would bench one of them but they are playing late. With my scenario, is it simply that it is not going to work for me this round? I would be very grateful for your help to stay near the top of my league.

    johnno2908 · 01/07/2016 at 10:29

    Phillips and McGovern would probably be the 2 you want to loophole from those. McGovern plays last game of the round, so stick him on ground with Phillips on the bench with the E on him. If Phillips scores well, sub McGovern and Wells to get Phillips points. Alternatively if Phillips spuds up, leave McGovern on ground.

      Millicent · 01/07/2016 at 11:07

      Thanks Jonno, much appreciated. I hope it works but still nervous.

Chubby McChubby · 01/07/2016 at 11:45

Sloane this week or Hanners next. Not concerned by overall just league

    Derek · 01/07/2016 at 12:23

    i'm same. should have got Sloane last week but stuffed around and missed the thursday night cut-off. Of course he has a blinder!

    Sloane's price going up, hanners price coming down. I don't know now.

The Master · 01/07/2016 at 11:54

I try to put the VC on the player I think will go the highest, this week Ablett, with the back up plan on the C, this week Hannaberry.
That way I dont have the delema of getting a pretty good score like Priddis last night and still thinking what if Ablett goes huge.
However if Priddis went huge, I would be still confident in my first choice. Doent always work out, but has this year for me.

    Derek · 01/07/2016 at 12:12

    i like that strategy as well.

    Always an odd feeling though when you have your VC on a player and your opponents have their C on same (they already done their VC), you sort of want that player to have a poor score.

      The Master · 01/07/2016 at 12:29

      I know what you mean Derek, That is the case this week for me and if Ablett has a poor game at least I will have a second chance. I still want Ablett to go well though for overall score.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 01/07/2016 at 12:57

    Yeah this has been my strategy the last couple of weeks.

    Danger into bald jeebus last week worked a treat.
    So this week bald jeebus will be by into? Hoping won't need a C this week.

      The Master · 01/07/2016 at 13:25

      Yep, cant ask for better than Danger into Ablett, this week a bit trickier if Ablett does not fire. I am not certain my choice of backup, hanneberry against dogs is any guarantee but the best I have. Gawn or Simpson are only other options for me to follow Ablett.

Derek · 01/07/2016 at 12:02

looking at only making one trade this week. Have 21 playing this week.

want to get Phillips, but not sure who to trade out.

Lee (BE 9), Petracca (BE 51), Gresham (BE 35), McGovern (BE 49), Menadue (BE -19).

all of them are playing.

my preference is probably Gresham, as he is in the midfield and will give me another DPP swingset, he does have a bit of cash still to make, especially as saints play Suns & Essendon the next two games.

an alternative is to trade out Barlow to Phillips and build a big warchest (still have 11 trades). was going to wait this week and get more news on his injury and see how long he will be out for.

Either way, Phillips will be on the bench this week.

    Millicent · 01/07/2016 at 12:56

    Yep, go the former to have the DPP swing set . Unfortunately I currently do not have DPP mid yet six of my forwards are.

    Cozza · 01/07/2016 at 13:40

    I like the swing set as well. I'm using Phillips as my swing set with Kerridge as bench cover, so can swing him between both lines depending on need. Have Trengove and Rose and cover on those two lines as well. Gresham all the way.

Millicent · 01/07/2016 at 12:52

jonno, just to get it clear in my head re my forward loophole. Wells stays off the ground because he isn't playing. I put McGovern on the ground and make Phillips my emergency. If Phillips, who plays before McGovern gets (say) at least 70 points, I put Wells on the ground and McGovern on the bench. Correct?

    Ben · 01/07/2016 at 13:03


    johnno2908 · 01/07/2016 at 13:33

    Yep, will definitely work

      Millicent · 01/07/2016 at 16:11

      Thank you Jonno and Ben

TRIGGER HAPPY · 01/07/2016 at 13:38

SoSoS finally gets his chance.
Big stage against the pies.

Cozza · 01/07/2016 at 13:43

Stuck on who to bring in as my last defender. Tossing up between Rance and Williams. Will be trading out Adams, so have $547,800 to play with and already have Docherty, Simpson, Bartel, Laird and Shaw in the backs. Is it worth bringing one of these guys in (and if so, who would be best??) or waiting a week to see how Johannisen goes?

This will complete my team, although with only 6 trades left.

Team is
Def: Docherty, Simpson, Bartel, Shaw, Laird (trade in option) – Tucker and Collins on bench
Mid: Danger, Pendles, Ablett, Selwood, Stevens, Parker, TMitch, Rockliff – Phillips, Trengove and Stewart on bench
Ruck: Gawn, Martin – King on bench
Fwd: Dusty, Zorko, Deledio, Montagne, Wells, Hall – Kerridge and Rose on bench

Any help greatly appreciated!!

    The Master · 01/07/2016 at 13:59

    I think I would wait a week on JJ due to his high ceiling. Otherwise I would take Rance as I think he will see the ball coming into the backline quite a bit on the run home.

Mitch · 01/07/2016 at 14:35

Is Lids a worthy pick? something is telling me not to pick him up as hes playing predominately forward this year

Dickin Cider · 01/07/2016 at 14:42

Team is

shaw bartel laird simpson docherty adams collins joyce
danger pendles ablett parker ward sloane libba kerridge trengove stewart d.cuningham
goldy gawn cox
martin barlow hall zorko montagna petracca menadue phillips

1 trades and 342k in bank

Should i go bang bang this week or just upgrade Petracca/Kerridge. Was gonna wait for Hanners price drop but also like Kennedy as i think he could come home with a bang and is a POD option.
Adams can wait as I want to see how JJ goes for his first game back.

Thanks community
