Sam Docherty SuperCoach 2017

by TRIGGER HAPPY

Indeed.

What is up Doc? What happened in 2016 to go from an average of 88 (which is pretty good for a defender) to increase that by a massive 20 points to an average of 108 (this is outstanding for a defender) to become the number 1 ranked SuperCoach defender by year end?

Or to quote bugs “hey bub, what’s all the hubbub?”

We expected this from Shaw but no one could see this one coming maybe it was simply “don’t take life too seriously you’ll never get out alive”. But there was more to it than that.

Clearly it wasn’t one thing but a number of factors that turned Doc in a SuperCoach gun but once all the ducks lined up in a row its “wabbit season, no it is duck season bang, bang, bang, bang”.

Doc was one of the infamous mummy boys go home 5 traded from Brisbane at the end of 2013. While others headed to West Coast, Port, the Pies and Saints, Doc rather than “taking a left turn at Albuquerque” made a vline for princess park and became a Blue. However at the time of his arrival the blues had a running defender called Yaz and the stalwart in Simmo who drove the ball out of the backline so he was asked to play an accountable role in the back pocket or sometimes forward. At the end of 2014 Yaz was traded to the Tiges creating a running half back role for Doc. Bang duck 1.

LISTEN: GET JOCK, CROUCHING & HIGGO’S THOUGHTS ON DOCHERTY & OUR 2017 DEFENDERS HERE

Despite now having a role that suited him at the start of 2015 the coach at the time was Mick Shitehouse who employed a game plan from the 1980’s where you would chip the ball around and only use the wings to bomb it into the fwd line. Doc wanted to run but was hamstrung by this plan? and would have loved to tear out of the backline dashing up the guts but this was strictly forbidden by the coach. The middle was sacred ground only to be used by the hawks, cats and swans. So Doc was good not great. The coach was sacked during 2015 with John Barker becoming the interim coach. Although he tried to change things you can only do so much during a season. Bang duck 2.

Brendan Bolton appointed as Carlton coach. Bang duck 3. Bolts came off the Clarko coach production line. He put his stamp on the club straight away bringing in his own support staff and a new game plan which was pretty simple really. You are accountable, work hard, don’t shirk the contest when it is your time to go you go, chase tackle and harass when you don’t have the ball, have fun but beyond all – back yourself. Doc did just that.

Bolts and the blues then addressed the list with the big one being recruitment. SOS was welcomed back with open arms and was appointed chief recruiter. Setting up a spine was his number one priority especially defence. Bang duck 4. Now Doc had some help with Weita and Plowman now holding down key posts. They can take a contested grab and then feed it out to Doc either by hand or foot to let him do his thing. And boy how he loved that and his thing was exceptional.

  • Number 14 ranked player for disposal efficiency (3rd best defender)
  • 9th for kicks per game
  • 3rd in total marks and marks per game

RISK FACTOR

Price

Nearly $600k for a defender is unheard of and a truck load of cash to splash on a player.

Some people are of the opinion that you don’t pay over $500k for a defender. Let me counter this with class is class and you get what you pay for. Doc was the 10th highest point scorer for the 2016 season including midfield!

To put that into perspective that is more points than JPK, the Bont, Dusty, Priddus, Sloane and Goldy just to name a few. Enough said.

The Tuohy Factor or rather the lack of Tuohy factor.

Zac Tuohy was used by the blues as a bit of a lock down player to help Doc and Simmo to play the running defender role. With Tuohy gone will Doc or Simmo be asked to lock down in defence therefore limiting and reducing their scoring power? Maybe but the blues did trade a 1st round pick for a kid called Marchbank who should play early and also got a bonus in the interceptor in Macreadie. Surely one of them gets a gig early and still allows the lads to run the ball out of defence. I don’t think Bolts will ask either of them to change their role as they are the best one/two combo in the AFL. Shaw and Williams may challenge for the title this year but they are the current title holders. Supercoach has recognised this and priced them accordingly in 2017.

Tag

Will teams start to lock down on Simmo and Doc in 2017? Maybe but pretty unlikely. At stages last year this tactic was employed but with limited success as if you tag one the other gets off the chain. The Blues also have a guy called Cripps who opposition coaches are sure to put more time into. Doc has proved in the past he can handle the tag using his footy smarts, he is no D Rich who goes missing if you man up on him in defense.  And besides it is the Blues. They may be sharp out of defence but they will not hurt you at the other end on the score board. This is still a work in progress.

Medical

My research has uncovered that Doc does infact suffer from a rare immune defect which he controls with medication. As long as Doc takes his meds he is fine but when he doesn’t he starts to see things. “Run for the hills folks or you’ll be up to your armpits in Martians”.

SELECTION PURPOSE

Surely after reading the above you realise he is a keeper all season long?

Either to start with or as an early upgrade but get him into your team ASAP.

THE GOOD

  • #1 SC defender 2016
  • Loves playing with the freedom under Brendan Bolton
  • #10 SC point scorer in 2016
  • One of the best intercept markers in the competition and has the ability to hit seemingly difficult targets off half back with pinpoint accuracy
  • Player every game last year. Very durable.
  • Fantastic disposal efficiency

THE BAD

  • Costly for defender
  • May be tagged more heavily
  • What impact will the loss of Zac Tuohy have on his output
  • Can he keep it up?

THE VERDICT

Lock now or ASAP depending on $$.

But don’t miss out on all those points for the sake of a few extra $$.

Reality is we have a new defensive supercoach king who missed the ton on only 6 occasions with a high kick to handball ratio, who gets plenty of the ball, can mark and is super-efficient by foot. You are either going to start him and forget about him or hope he drops in price which he will as every player does, and grab him when you feel the timing is right. But sooner or later he needs to be in your team else “you are ‘mud’ and remember mud spelt backwards is ‘dum’”.

This is the final article in our pre-season community write-ups. From all the authors we hope you enjoyed reading them as much as we enjoyed writing them. And remember “if we can make one person smile, or pee their pants a little, then our day was not wasted!”

He has been in and out of my side almost every day.

In the end it will depend on the rookies, if there are a lot of good defensive ones then he will be an upgrade target.

Eric_the_Red · 02/02/2017 at 09:48

Locked and loaded.
Thoughts on Shaw and Laird as D2 and 3 VS Laird and Williams as D2 and 3?

    Kev · 02/02/2017 at 10:30

    Shaw and Laird, Eric. Shaw is Shaw, massive ceiling and has proven he can go on high scoring runs. Laird training with the midfield group, becoming very hard to leave out

    Baps · 02/02/2017 at 10:39

    Shaw only averaged 89 in the second half of last year, due to Williams' increased role. I'd steer clear of Heater to start with.

      Kev · 02/02/2017 at 10:55

      Williams only averaged 76 himself in the second half of the year, Baps. Shaw was tagged 3 times and couldn't handle it.

        I N Pieman · 02/02/2017 at 11:19

        It does leave quite a query on both Shaw & Zac Kev. No one went near Shaw in the first half of the season. When attention came he went from a 117 AV to 89. Can't be ignored in calculations

          TRIGGER HAPPY · 02/02/2017 at 22:43

          Definitely something to consider,
          the problem is JLT will tell us nothing about shaw and a tag as he wont be tagged in the preseason
          So it will come down to backing your gut.
          R u Shaw?

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 02/02/2017 at 21:13

    I'm with you Eric Doc is locked for me.
    he has lined all his ducks up in a row and will go close to number 1 again this year.

I N Pieman · 02/02/2017 at 09:59

Fantastic article Trigger. I have 2 issues here. His bye presents an issue for my team. But most importantly he's at price that he's never been at before. That tells me one thing. He's coming down. No doubt about it & that's when I'll pick him off. Kudos again on a great pitch

    SCaddict · 02/02/2017 at 13:08

    Yes I may have to leave him out due to bye considerations and his lofty pricing too. That's one slight advantage a Taylor Adams has with his Rd13 bye.

    Not many top 8 defender candidates have a Rd12 bye other than Rance and maybe Houli.

      I N Pieman · 02/02/2017 at 15:04

      I couldn't stomach having Houli in my team. The difference between is best & worst is 100 points +

        TRIGGER HAPPY · 02/02/2017 at 21:10

        As for houli dooly he is on the never again list foe mine.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 02/02/2017 at 21:09

    Sorry lads been offline all day.
    But let's get stuck in.
    Glad you enjoyed it INP.
    Fair enough on the byes you have to work out your strategies as for price ill have a stab at that one down further.

Nick Wealands · 02/02/2017 at 10:05

Great stuff Trigger, I'll be happy to lock and load him for round 1, he's a bloody gun who'll average over 100 this season so he's a no brainer, locked away early

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 02/02/2017 at 21:14

    Thanks Nic
    Yep sit back, relax and watch the points roll in.

Kev · 02/02/2017 at 10:33

Locked him in Trigger. He was fantastic last year. Might not hit the same heights but won't be far off.

Great wrap up of writeups too. You've put in a brilliant preseason, Trig!

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 02/02/2017 at 21:18

    Thanks Kev.
    Yeah thought it was a great way to wrap up the series.
    As you know love a good theme and this one was perfect to finish.
    Don't sell yourself short your pre season has been amazing how many articles did you crank out? Must have been in the teens.

Holmes_Heroes · 02/02/2017 at 10:51

I've got him in but I've been wavering since I reckon his price will drop. Just looked at Carlton's fixture: Rich, Melb, Ess, GC, Port… you might be waiting a little bit for his price to drop by then… has got a tough few weeks before his bye tho.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 02/02/2017 at 22:00

    Wait at your peril

    Moustachio · 03/02/2017 at 00:08

    Does he score better against bottom sides?

Jack · 02/02/2017 at 11:50

Def- Laird, JJ, Houli,Hibberd, Mcgrath, Berry (Collins,Ryan)
Mid- Danger, Treloar,Bont, hepell,beams,swallow,Powell-pepper, Myers(Freeman,Witherden,Bolton)
Ruc- Gawn,Grundy(Cameron)
Fwd-MAcrae,Smith,Heeney,Rioli, Mccluggage,Bowes(pickdtt,Lamb)
Whats your thoughts got 140k left in the bank

    Tommo · 02/02/2017 at 12:45

    Berry has recently had surgery and I would have Strnadica in R3 now that Sandi his injured himself

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 02/02/2017 at 22:24

      Bugger,

      Looked a fair chance to run out rd 1.

wombatsfc · 02/02/2017 at 12:14

Will his price go down? Docherty's last years ave against his first 10 opponents this year was 113.8
Richmond 118
Melbourne 110
Bombers 76 and 102 both tagged
Gold Coast 116
Port 147
Swans 112
Pies 120 and 87
Saints 141 and 104
Freo 87
Hoppers 135

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 02/02/2017 at 21:19

    If he can emulate that start happy days.
    Lock the Doc.

    Keenbutclueless · 02/02/2017 at 22:17

    I have been in the buy him later camp. But the doubts over McGrath and Scharenburg have pushed me from a 3-0-5 Defence to a 4-0-4. When really the best D4 I could find was Pittard, I feel like I have to take him now. Especially on the back of these numbers. Forces me from JPK to Selwood to even up the bye structure but overall feels like the right thing

Tommo · 02/02/2017 at 12:29

Alright guys here is my team as it sits, would really appreciate any feedback you can give 🙂

DEF: S.Docherty, H.Shaw, R,Laird, H.Hartlett, A.McGrath, M.Scharenberg (J.Berry, L.Ryan)

MID: DePendlebury, JPK, J.Selwood, N.Fyfe, D.Heppell D.Swallow, SPP, D.Myers (C.Brown, S.Bolton, B.Jarman)

RUCK: B. Grundy, S.Martin (L.Strndica)

FWD: J.Macrea, I.Heeney, P.Ryder, J.Roughead, H.McCluggage, J.Pickett (T.Smith, B.Eddy)

I had Sandi but now that he's injured I had to get in Grundy. In order to do that I traded in Heppell for Danger and will look at upgrading SPP or Myers to Danger when he drops.

Any thoughts, tips or advice will be much appreciated

    Luke · 02/02/2017 at 12:52

    Cant afford not to Have Danger he is the best Supercoach scorer in the league even if he drops probably will you will have missed out on to many of his points

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 02/02/2017 at 21:20

      Agree need the topgun.
      Very brave or silly to start without him.

    wombatsfc · 02/02/2017 at 14:23

    Danger will outscore your next best captain option by 10-20pts every week Tommo Double that makes it 20-40 EVERY WEEK.
    Knock 15-30 points of Reg Grundys ave and pick a ruck from that price group and then get Danger back you'll still be in points positive territory

    It's unique but appears to be based on a fair bit of hope and expectation. Way too many on field rookies Luke. Have a look at the first 6 weeks aves (including missed games) from each of the best 5 rookies from each of the last 5-years. You have 7 onfield rookies, but not really a guns n rookies team too many potential guns not enough smoking barrels.

    I N Pieman · 02/02/2017 at 15:17

    Jack my opinion on Keefe is he used to get most of his points from defensive spoils. Playing as a key forward this season his opponent will be getting those defensive spoil points. I think his ordinary scoring will be worse than what it was. For me he's a last resort pick

Jack · 02/02/2017 at 13:46

Thoughts on Keefe?

    SCaddict · 02/02/2017 at 14:09

    He's probably in the Pies best 22 although some may have their doubts. So it will likely come down to role and the availability of other cheaper defensive rookies on how many coaches select him, assuming he plays Rd1 himself.

    He's certainly capable of producing 60-70ppg which would see him appreciate by $150-200K so should be on everyone's watch list at the very least.

    wombatsfc · 02/02/2017 at 14:47

      I N Pieman · 02/02/2017 at 15:08

      HAHA wombat. Nice one!

Pacca Jnr · 02/02/2017 at 16:31

Hi community – first year putting a team in (with Dads help) and keen to find out if I am crazy or not with this one, mid structure a bit left of centre. Going deep as I feel like points to be had while cash to be made at the same time in players like Scooter and Sheed – silly? Also tried to stick to choosing guns who are reliable and don't score poorly often (no Toby roller coaster like dad had last year)

DEF: Simpson, Adams, Laird, McGrath, Keefe, Berry (Collins/Ryan)
MID: Danger, Pendles, Hanners, Sloane, Fyfe, Scooter, Swallow, Sheed (SPP/ Myers/ Pickett)
RUCK: Gawn, Giles
FWD: Macrae, Ryder, Bennell, Roughie, Bowes, Bolton (Rioli/Eddy)

All advice well received 🙂

    wombatsfc · 02/02/2017 at 21:23

    A few of those blokes wont make round 1 according to the news from respective clubs, rookie status and blokes here who know. Least likely to play round 1 are Bennell, Keefe, Berry, Giles, Bowes and eddy.
    My advice would be to tell dad to ruin his own team and let you win by yourself

      Borgman · 02/02/2017 at 23:55

      Wombat,
      Bowes & Ainsworth are ready for round 1. Didnt you read the article with Rocket's quotes the other day?
      Brodie mid season & Scrimshaw towards end of season.

      Bowes locked. Will kill it off half back

      Kev · 03/02/2017 at 15:23

      Keefe is being groomed for Cloke's spot. Freo will get Bennell on the park if he's not injured for once. Giles is a shot. Nic Nat to miss most of the year, Lycett half of it. Vardy the only other ruck on their books

    Kev · 02/02/2017 at 21:27

    Not bad, mate, Woosha said in an interview today McGrath not being "overloaded" in his first season. Methinks he will get rested a lot. Not ideal at his price. Unlikely he'll earn enough cash to be a good pick. Berry had surgery on his knee and is out 4-6 weeks of preseason.

    Like the deep mids. Sheed is ballsy. Have a look at Bowes from GC in preseason games. He'll get a shot early and is a better option for more.

    Giles… Well, the risk has gotta be somewhere I guess. I assume your R3 is Str-what'shisname for coverage with Ryder. Bennell will find his way into a lot of sides if he tears up preseason

Graham · 02/02/2017 at 16:37

Would anyone agree with a 2-2-4 defence this year as there a lot of interesting mid pricers!! Hartlett, hodge, jibber, Murphy etc. I was thinking of starting the year with hodge and Hartlett and if they aren't performing to look to jump on a fallen premium (as I am sure there will be plenty). Also hodge and Hartlett have proven them selves to finish with decent averages
Thought??!

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 02/02/2017 at 21:26

    I have considered hartlett.

    Except for last year where he and port in general were anus horribulis he averaged in the 90's pushing the ton which would do for a d6
    will keep a close eye on him in JLT. There is value there..

    Kev · 02/02/2017 at 21:30

    Under 500k I'd rather Lloyd or ZacW. Mills training with the midfield group is a positive

    Jib JIb · 02/02/2017 at 21:56

    Not personally a fan of the 2-2-4 Graham but only because I'm going guns and rooks this year. I agree though there are plenty of good mid pricers across all lines if you want to take the punt on them this year.

Graham · 02/02/2017 at 16:38

OldOcker · 02/02/2017 at 16:40

WHATS UP TRIGGER HAPPY.
Great write up mate, and what a sensational series of write ups from everyone involved.

The Old fart is going to say something on this subject of Doc.
He has increased his average by 21 points in a single season, now he maybe classed as an absolute gun. (One season I get horrid thoughts of last year)
That is a hell of an increase in one season and how much can he improve his score from last year?

I am steering well clear because I believe his score will reduce enough based on his Points per Dollar value.
He may well be a certain upgrade but according to my figures which you may see soon he is priced to lift his average again by another 6 Points. He is priced to average 115.1 Last years average was 108.7. (On the plus side he did play 22 games)
I can't see that and feel he is too expensive to start with and will be cheaper after a few rounds when it is time for 1 of the first upgrades.

I did take my medication today too, Please feel free to debate.

    I N Pieman · 02/02/2017 at 16:57

    I agree with you Ocker because the pricing formula drops come season proper. How's he going to hold a price he's never been at. Raising his Av to 115 odd to hold the price is a massive ask. And very few players have ever been able to go 115+, let alone a bloke who doesn't play in the guts

      OldOcker · 02/02/2017 at 17:03

      Hey nuts, Spot on mate I know you understand how the old B/E formula works. About round 5 it normally changes for the first of about 5 times through the season. Surprising how much this can effect B/E and Price.

        I N Pieman · 02/02/2017 at 17:24

        Yep the multiplier is currently sitting at 5.44 & will drop to about 5 at that point. And that's why almost every premo drops in price even if they are having a good season. A bad game or 2 sends the price plummeting

    wombatsfc · 02/02/2017 at 21:30

    The problem with you old folks is that a diet of pet food is nutritionally deficient and as such the crazyness takes over 🙂
    It's all about the points Ocker, who cares if your the richest bloke in the league when your teams the lowest scorer.
    I hadn't even considered Doch to start this year until I saw that 113.8 ave from l/y against his first ten opponents and then today I snuck into a closed session practice game and saw him playing as a pure midfielder. Might even see another double digit ave increase LOCKED

      OldOcker · 02/02/2017 at 22:00

      Wombatsfc, It is not a case of being the richest bloke in the league and yes it is about points but Heater consistently starts the first 8 rounds better than Doc.
      I wont start with both and Heater is the better option on past years form.
      I would rather use the $ for an extra gun in the guts with my current team structure.
      Naturally jlt games might sway my mind but that is my opinion ATM. Long way off season start and reliable info starts to come in from trusted sources.
      Thanks for the info.
      I do make sure I eat well because of my health and it is certainly not pet food.
      The stroke I had does sometimes affect me but when it does I am not here commenting. I take my medication daily.

      PS: Did you update your version of Excel so that you can make sense of the data?

      I N Pieman · 02/02/2017 at 22:23

      Calm down wombat. You get invited into great leagues every year & delete your team & run for the hills just before round 1 every year. Every year. Stand up & fight for once. Put your wombat balls on the line & go into battle for once instead of being an armchair critic. "I challenge you to a duel". Have you got the guts in 2017? History says no. Prove me wrong

        wombatsfc · 03/02/2017 at 23:32

        I shouldn't have to explain myself to anybody but your incessant pestering of me because I wont pucker up is becoming Troll-like.
        For the past 2-years after creating a team and joining leagues I have become seriously ill or, planned an extended trip into remote areas of Australia to try and recover from existing illnesses.
        On both occaisions the events occured weeks before the AFL season started so I withdrew my team from any leagues that I'd joined so that nobody in the league had the advantage of playing against a zombie team if/when I was unable to edit my team due to lack of internet coverage or physical ability.
        This year my health isn't any better and I hope to be buying a property that is remote and doesn't even have water or sewerage connected, no mobile coverage and only has turnbulls rubbish excuse for 1990's internet as a method to access the game so I am resisting the urge to join leagues.
        I envy the speed of your Australian city 3rd world level internet as I work with a service no faster than my 1995 ozemail dialup connection.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 02/02/2017 at 21:52

    Thanks Ocker appreciate it.

    Let me counter with my thoughts.

    Doc will be a top defender this year for all the reasons i highlighted above
    I agree granted Doc will fall in price and you will get him cheaper but really depends who you start with and what you do with the $ saved?
    In my case i am looking at starting doc, laird and maybe adams. So if i went doc down to simmo/shaw would the $20k saved really help? $120k rookie to a $140k rook? Doc is younger than simmo so i would take doc, not 100% on shaw for reasons detailed above by the community, was tagged in the back end etc.
    if go further down to say JJ gives another $70k odd could now get a dearer rookie but are they going to score any better than a cheapy? And more importantly appreciate at a quicker rate? Ryder up leaves you in no mans land as it is not enough for a mccrae, dahl, lynch who should finish in the top fwds.
    if you go further down to williams who may/may not improve mcdonald? then it gives you enough to buy an excy rook or a key forward but are they going to score as the alternative.
    Im sure everyone has chopped and changed looking at different scenarios to get the best fit.

    For me with my team as it stands lock the doc and watch the points roll in.

    Oh and also Ock.
    Running a GnR team this year so pay the price for the best and fill the rest with rooks.
    I have taken who i consider the top pick in each position.
    Doc, danger, gawn and dahl.

      OldOcker · 02/02/2017 at 22:27

      TRIGGER, I understand exactly where you are coming from mate and I will be G&R as far as possible and appreciate that you are taking the best on each line.
      There is no doubt I will end up with Doc in my team but ATM I cant see starting with him because of my team structure.
      No doubt my team will change before lockout and the only changes I have ever made to it from my initial selections are the Rucks.
      I will certainly be watching the lad in the JLT series, you never know I might just have to start with him as Wombatsfc said.

      Hope you were not offended by my opinion mate but as it stands that is my current opinion.

        TRIGGER HAPPY · 02/02/2017 at 22:33

        Ocker its an opinion that is what we are here for.
        Why we may not always agree we respect each others opinion and form our own
        Perish the thought i would be offended, love your work. 🙂

        We are all different and have different strategies that's what makes this game so great.

Any love for Gibson or Rampe?

    hedski · 03/02/2017 at 11:03

    Please don't pick Gibbo, just don't, had him last year, no.

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 03/02/2017 at 11:41

      Told ya someone should do an article on doc 🙂

        hedski · 03/02/2017 at 12:08

        Ha ha, yes you did. All you guys (INP Kev Gaveday Bont Jambo Nikki Boi BBQs Treloar yourself and the rest of the community series writers) have done a massive job over the last few months, very much appreciated by myself and many more, big thumbs up and cheers big ears.

Hi community where can I find the points given to a player for each effective handball, kick and also the advanced stats such as1%ers and all of those
Thanks

    Kev · 02/02/2017 at 21:36

    Hey Jordan. If you Google "supercoach scoring system" you'll find how it all breaks down.

    For advanced stats I use footywire. Search for a player and you can toggle between the basic and advanced stats

Stirlsy · 02/02/2017 at 17:33

No room for him at that price, thinking he will come back to the pack a bit but still be top 3 defender at seasons end, upgrade target for me.
Nice work from Trigger and the boys for all write ups during the preseason Great stuff by all….Cheers…

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 02/02/2017 at 21:53

    Thanks mate have really enjoyed writing the articles

Kevan · 02/02/2017 at 21:32

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 02/02/2017 at 21:55

    Cheers mate

neil demons delight · 02/02/2017 at 22:05

great write up Trig deleted doc and shaw for Kelly and Williams with a view to pick both up r6. Both Kelly/Williams may well be def keepers.This enables me to pick up lynch for swallow probably another keeper thanks again trig

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 02/02/2017 at 22:17

    Thanks mate
    Ready for a big season?
    Looking forward to taking on the delights this year in a league match or two.
    Fair enough mate, you got a plan and how you will use the $ saved.

      neil · 03/02/2017 at 13:36

      your team name trig

Happy New Year Community hope all are well. This is one year I am certain huge priced defenders wont matter when you have Hurley returning and Hibberd now playing for Melbourne, I love these two plays and believe they will Average you 95+
I also like Bob Murphy however my only concern is his age and coming back from a ACL, due to his massive price drop, if he was 4 years younger he would be a definite LOCK for me irrespective of his averages in the past.

Here is my current side community.

DEF: Simpson, Hurley, Hibberd, Scharenberg, Hibberd, Newman (Ryan, Stewart)
MID: Danger, Pendles, Sloane, BONT, Fyfe, Caddy Powel-Pepper, Myers (Drew, Graham, Ronke)
RUCK: Gawn, Goldy (Strnadica)
FWD: Dahlhaus, Franklin, Gunston, Roughead, Bolton, Cameron (Lyons, Eddy)

Any feed back regardless if its Negative or Positive is welcome.
