SuperCoach Team Reveal v3.0

Published by Jock on

SuperCoach 2017 Team RevealTime to perv on each others current SuperCoach teams!

Will be very interested to roll the eye over these, especially keen to see which way most are heading with ruck structure as discussed in this weeks podcast.

The latest word is that Sandiballs may lumber his way onto the park for some JLT Series action – great news for many!

Midfield rookies.. are they THIN on the ground or what!? Myers is out now – leaving young Sammy PP as the only existing MID only lockable rookie. And we haven’t even had a good look at the kid yet!

How are you dealing with the MID rookie situation? Which way are you going in the ruck? How many midpricers sucked a few in over the weekend?!

I bloody love this caper, look forward to losing myself in the commenting significance below.ย 

(PS.. I’ll be posting JR Brumby FC up here in the week before lockout)

gawn sandiballs
dahlhouse, heeney, caddy ryder, pickette, black

thaughts please
gone lots of mids in forwards but some too good to past options


love coniglio pick, great POD
def is lacking depth i reckon but looks like most are going with 3 on field rookies
risky fwd with caddy and heeney but overall solid team


No danger, kick in balls.

Luskin Star

No danger, good to see. way overpriced




get spellcheck

neil Demons Delight

Risky without Danger coniglio solid pod sandy risky too but still good team


Simpson, Adams, Laird, Newman, Vickers-Willis, Hibberd, Ryan, Stewart
Dangerfield, Treloar, Hanners, Jelwood, Fyfe, Swallow, SPP, Miles, Freeman, Graham, Bolton
Gawn, Grundy, Strnadica
Dahlhaus, Gunston, Caddy, Roughead, McCluggage, Bowes, Smith, Eddy


Solid as a rock, plenty of wriggle room John.

Luskin Star

Dont know about Jelwood. Reach the stage where he wont improve and you have left out a few guys who matched his effort last year and should improve


Who do you suggest Luskin?

Luskin Star

Cripps or Bont. See below for reasons


Why not Selwood? He is as consistent and durable as they come. A very safe pick

Luskin Star

Dont get me wrong Selwood is a safe pick. He averaged 112 last year and will probably do so again. At his age though there isnt much chance that he will improve on that. Cripps and Bont averaged 108 last year and havent psaked yet so there is a chance they will outscore him this year and are both cheaper.


Whilst I agree with Bont and Cripps Luskin, don't forget Selwood didn't have a preseason last year..


I have Cripps and Bont and will be picking them for the next 10 years

neil Demons Delight

Sorry L S totally disagree Danger no 1 cat Jelwood no 2 then space to 3


Sorry Luskin Star but I'll take Selwood who has had a full pre season over Cripps who has had an interrupted pre season and Bont who I believe has an ankle niggle.

cooper clarke

me myself I wouldn't go any key forwards, so id say no gunston for me. if I was to go a key forward though id go lynch (gc) he had a great sc year last year, in practically the worst team in the comp. and with some key mids coming into the side he will be licking. I'm backing him to go big this year will have a stand out year, top 4 forwards!!


Docherty, Adams, Laird, Scharenberg, Vickers Willis, Newman (Ryan, Stewart)

Dangerfield, Pendlebury, Hannebery, Kennedy, Fyfe, Swallow, Gallucci, SPP ( Graham, Hibbered, Bolton)

Gawn, Sandilands (Stranadica)

Riewoldt, Dahlhaus, Caddy, Ryder, McCluggage, Black (Pickett, Smith)


Thoughts much appreciated uncle Jock!

Luskin Star

Maybe move gallucci to fwds. Whatever he scores will be of more value there


Who would I then get in the midfield? And take out of the forward line?

Luskin Star

Im not a good one to ask about rookies because i know nothing about any of the ones we havent seen. My point is though that if he averages 65, a 65 from your f6 is better than a 65 from your m7 or 8.


Ryder out for Eddy and Gallucci out for T Mitchell


Doc, Laird, Mills, Vickers, Newman, Stewart (ryan, long)
Danger, Pendles, Hanners, Robbie Gray, Fyfe,,Tom Mitch, pepper, Myers (yes, I need to trade him) (miles, brown, graham)
Gawn, Stef Martin (stern dick)
Dahl, Gunston, Ryder, Roughy, Aaron Black, Balic (smith, eddy)

18k in the bank

Of course, rookies are subject to change.

Mills may not pay off but I see fire in the young bull's eyes

Luskin Star

Mills wont let you down. Will be a good pod


Adams, Laird, JJ, Hibberd, vickers Ellis, Ryan, Stewart, Newman

Dangers, Pendles, Hannebery, Fyfe, O'Meara, Swallow, McCluggage, Powell Pepper, barret, Pickett, Miles

Gawn, Goldstein, Cameron

Dahlhaus, Heeney, Ryder, Roughead, Bowes, Black, LeBois, Eddy

What do you think, Uncle Jock?

Luskin Star

Mcbags would be better placed in fwds whatever he scores there will be of more value


Like it!


DEF: Adams, Laird, JJ, KK, Scharenberg, Ryan (Hibberd, Vickers-Willis)

MID: Danger, Hanners, Treloar, Rockliff, Fyfe, Swallow, SPP, Pickett (Wigg, Freeman, Graham)

RUCK: Gawn, Sandi (Strndica)

FWD: Dahlhaus, Macrae, Ryder, Roughad, McClugage, D.Cameron (Bolton, Eddy)

*Rookies obviously subject to change and not sure if it is worth sacrificing a mid to get a reliable ruck instead of sandi


You can get Grundy but it will do a bit of rearranging. You would need to get rid of sandi, swallow, and SPP For Grundy, Zac Guthrie and maybe J. Cousins in mid. It's a risk, but so is sandi

Luskin Star

love the kk pick

Luskin Star

Backed billings in last year and he let me down. May not take much to convince me to give him another go. why are you so keen?


spent Friday night with the Stkilda football club for a function, I had Jack steven and the ruck coach on my table. Steven said he think Jack will have a Brownlow year coming the form he has shown over the pre season. Not sure if you saw him in the intra club match, but he absolutely dominated. Best on by far.
Also, the Ruck coach told me that he is one of the hardest workers hes dealt with, always does more than required and that is rare. Full pre season under his belt, a lot of expectations but a lot of reward if it pays off!

Luskin Star

Comment about being a hard worker doesnt sway me unless of course it is a change from the past. Steven's comment is telling though. I already have 4 fwds between 300 and 400k with the possibility of a 5th if bennell gets on field. What the hell one more risk wont kill me.


Yeah he said it was a change, he said his attitude has improved immensely


I'm going billings too will have a great year


Def: Docherty, Adams, Laird, K. Kolodjashnij, Vickers-Willis, Stewart (Ryan, Smith)
Mid: Danger, Hannebery, Treloar, Rocky, Fyfe, Beams, Swallow, Powell-Pepper (Barrett, Bolton, Graham)
Ruck: Gawn, Witts (Strnadica)
Fwd: Dahl, Macrae, Lynch, Bowes, Black, Pickett (Miles, Eddy

Willing to take the risk on Witts given there's no standout rucks apart from Gawn imo.. Will hopefully hold him until his bye (expected average of 75-80) and upgrade to Goldy/Smartin/Grundy. All thoughts and opinions appreciated lads.


Very high risk team I wouldn't touch Witts IMHO far to risky plus he's not guaranteed a start at gold coast I would get a better quality ruckmen either Goldy or Grundy


If younare going with a mid price ruck then pick sandi, he will score better. He might get injured but witts migjt get dropped and thats even worse!


B: Simmo, Rance, Laird, Mills, Vickers-Willis, Newman (Ryan, Guthrie)
M: Danger, Pendles, JPK, Treloar, Rocky, Fyfe, Swallow, SPP (Barrett, Pickett, Graham)
R: Grundy, Sandi (Strnadica)
F: Dahl, Caddy, Roughy, Black, Miles, Cameron (Smith, Eddy)

Posted my team earlier this week but have tweaked the backline a bit.

Any thoughts appreciated!


I don't think it will be a good year for Simmo but don't trust me off a gut feeling


Best I have seen without Max.

Luskin Star

Heard rance has tendonitis. Not a good sign before the season even starts.


Def: Adams, Laird, Johanissen, Hurley, vickers-willis, ryan (stewart. long)
Mid: Danger, JPK, Dusty, Bont, Fyfe, Swallow, Powell-Pepper, Miles (HIbberd, Graham, Ronke)
Ruck: Gawn, Ryder (sterndicka)
Fwd: Dahlhaus, T Lynch, Wingard, Roughead, Balic, Bolton (Smith, Eddy)
$77,700 in the bank, need help.
i know fwd line is risky as hell but i believe lynch and wingard will be top 10 fwds this year, maybe roughy on the brink of that.
same thing with my defs, no doc but my d1-d4 i reckon will be top 10 def scorers.
not loving my r2 in ryder, should i downgrade hurley to rookie and get premo r2 and possible premo mid for swallow at m6.
help is very much appreciated community

Luskin Star

I wouldnt shift hurley. He was top 8 when he last played. Leave swallow until his bye when you might be able to get premo mid. I would downgrade dusty and move Ryder to fwds. Think he will be top 10 fwd.


mid would be lacking depth though with the limited rookie selections if downgrade dusty.


If you're prepared to go with Ryder and roughy then maybe consider sandiballs and Ryder for a similar spend.

Love the Lynch pick but I worry about the number of port gcs players. Wingard is the better value of the bunch but Lynch is the better season long bet IMO.

Gawn, Sandi (Strndica)
Dahlhouse, Ryder, Roughead, Elliot, Hoskin-Elliot, Mcclugage (Bowes, Black)


Hi Chris, not sure why nobody commented on your team but I'll give it a crack.

DEF: Watch Bob, coming off an ACL will be tough at his age…id consider downgrading to beef up the midfield.
MIDs: Seem a bit light on given there is no standout rookies yet. I'd rather see a rookie upgraded, even if it's to a cheap Beams/Murphy/Watson.
RUCKs: no complaints provided Sandis fit
FWDS: I'm 50/50 on Roughie being a good pick, I'm less so on Elliot. Also not convinced Hoskin Elliot and McBags will be worth the extra spend, especially since you have another on the bench (Bowes)

$104,000 in the bank to make adjustments if needed,
Strong midfield but banking on a lot of rookies getting a game, bit of a risk but hoping it could be the difference.
Please feel free to rate the side fellas ๐Ÿ™‚


I really like this team. Looking at running a similar structure myself although I'd go one less mid premium and one more forward. Good luck.

Luskin Star

Man thats a strong mid. Love zerritt and Tmac

Luskin Star

If you want berry, have him in def where his scores will count for more


there isnt too many good midfield rookies though


Well there is ado you prick of a man by the name of n freeman


Doch, Laird, Mills, Keeffe, Vickers-Willis, Hibberd (Guthrie, Stewart)
Danger, Prndles, Dannebery, Bonts, Fyfe, Heppell, Taranto, SPP (Pickett, mountford, Freeman)
Gawn, Grundy (Cameron)
Dahlhaus, Heeney, Ryder, Mccluggage, Black, Tiziani, (Eddy, Battle)

130k in bank
Any thoughts are greatly appreciated


Id use your extra cash to upgrade either heeney or ryder. No need to take two mid price risks there get a sure thing.
Not sure about taranto either. JS is poor and will have to score around 80 to make $200k
But otherwise I like it

Luskin Star

Like it


Not sure about Taranto and Gluggage mate very pricey rooks


B: Doc, Shaw, Adams, Hibberd (Melb), Newman, Ryan (Stewart, Long);
M: Danger, Pendles, JPK, Priddis, Fyfe, Swallow (GC), McCluggage, SPP (Hibberd, Graham, Bolton);
R: Gawn, Sandilands (Strnadica)
F: Dahlhaus, Caddy, Ryder, Roughy, Picket, Cameron (Smith, Eddy)

Luskin Star

Mcbags to fwds, other than that i like it


Thanks Luskin. So McBags swap for Picket should work?


Def: Docherty, Adams, Touhy, Murphy, N. Newman, T. Stewart (L. Ryan, B. Long)
Mid: Danger, Kennedy, Fyfe, Prestia, M. Crouch, Menegola, O'Meara, Powell-Pepper (M. Hibberd, B. Parfitt, J. Graham)
Ruck: Gawn, Hickey (D. Cameron)
Fwd: Dahlhaus, Gunston, Caddy, Black, Pickett, Jarman (L. Tiziani, S. Bolton)
Bank: $19.4k



Downgrade murph and upgrade 2 of crouch meng prestia to some trusted premiums. To much risk picking 3 potiential breakout mids

Luskin Star

Think prestia has a chance at averaging 115. Dont think the other 2 do.


Like the Prestia pick. Don't like the Hickey one.


My current team
Back line Adams, Laird, JJ, Newman, Vickers-Willis, Stewart. Bench Long, Ryan.

Midfield Dangerfield, Selwood, Z Merrett, Treloar, Fyfe, T Mitchell, Powell-Pepper, Wigg. Bench Hibberd, Miles, Poholke.

Rucks Gawn, Grundy. Bench Cameron.

forward line N Riewoldt, Dahlhaus, McCrae, Black, Pickett, Bolton. Bench Daicos, Eddy.

70k in the bank I'm pretty happy with my team ATM


Don't mind this team at all. Solid structure. Well done


Straight up Guns and Rooks no messing around. Not my style but clearly you have a plan and stick to it, nicely done John

neil Demons Delight

first with poh like him too


Is that kung fu panda poh Neil or do you mean Roo?


Would love some feedback from everyone
(Def) Docherty, Adams, Laird, Hartlett, Sharenberg, Stewart (Newman, Ryan)
(Mid) Dangerfield, Treloar, Bontempelli, Fyfe, Murphy, Swallow, Powell-Pepper, Mcluggage (Hibberd, Freeman, Brown)
(Ruck) Gawn, Martin (Strandica)
(Fwd) Dahlhaus, Macrae, Caddy, Bowes, Pickett, Bolton (Black, Eddy)
Am a bit cheap up forward but feel this is the way to go, should I downgrade Hartlett for a another premo in the midfield?

Luskin Star

Hartlett has a shot at top 10 IMHO so i wouldnt shift him. Move McBags to the fwds. A 70 from your f6 is better than a 70 from your m8


Hartlett played off half back in ports internal club match. Looks like he'll be playing the same role as last year, meaning less midfield minutes and the same low scoring


Will know tonight


DEF – Docherty, T.Adams, Laird, K.Kolodjashnij, Scharenberg, Ryan (Stewart, Newman)

MID – Dangerfield, Pendlebury, Rockliff, Fyfe, Murphy, Swallow, Powell-Pepper, Freeman (Pickett, Graham, Bolton)

RUCK – Gawn, Goldsteine (Strnadica)

FWD – Dahlhaus, Macrae, Caddy, Hoskin-Elliot, Bowes, Black (Eddy, Smith)


Worried about lack of midfield and forward rookies. But seem spoiled for choice down back. So a slightly unusual structure

Def. adams, Laird, Hampton, vickers-Willis, Newman, Stewart (Ryan, smith)
Mid. Danger, Hanners, Selwood, Treloar, Fyfe, Titchell, m Crouch, SPP (Barrett, mountford, Pickett)
Ruck. Gawn, Sandi (Stndicka)
Fwd. Dahl, Macrae, Caddy, Ryder, Black, Miles (Cameron , Eddy)

I am ok with the bye structure.
I really believe Doch can be bought cheaper.
Can swap M Crouch for Grundy and Sandi for Swallow as a plan b. But have a feeling Crouch could be the next beast.

Thanks in advance for your comments


Defence is way to go light in for sure. Doc will come down in price and can use maybe a swinging mid or forward mid pricer stepping stone to upgrade around round 6! I'm seeing very common midfields atm which is worrying

Luskin Star

Personally i like plan b. I think swallow will outscore crouch but opinons are like butts, everyone has one


Def: Simpson Adams Laird Keefe newman Ryan (Vickers-Willis Stewart)

Mid: Dangerfield, Pendlebury Merrett, Treleor Rockliff Fyfe Swallow Horlin Smith (SPP Hibberd Parfitt)

Ruck: Gawn Sandilands (Stramdica)

Fwd: Dahlhaus Macrae Roughhead Black Pickett Eddy (Durdin Long)

Deliberately weak in fwds…gotta be thin somewhere I guess.. If not enough fwd rookies named I will down grade on of my many premo mids


Horlin smith is interesting dominates reserves but hasnt been able to cement a spot. Too risky for mine.

Whats your plan if sandi gets injured early?


Def: Doch, Shaw, Laird, McGrath, Scharenberg, Newman (Stewart, Ryan)
Mid: Danger, Pendles, Gaz, Fyfe, Bont, Swallow, SPP, Miles (Hibberd, Freeman, Graham)
Ruc: Gawn, Sandi (Strndica)
Fwd: Dahl, Lynch, Heeney, Rough, McCluggagae, Bowes (Pickett, Eddy)

Thoughts community

The Ranger

Nice team Tommo, not sure about the 200k rookies, or having no back up ruck, or the Ablett pick but it's a ballsy team.
Put it thru Triggers risk spreadsheet.
Good luck mate.

Luskin Star

Who would have thought that Gaz would one day be a POD. Could be a masterstroke


No panic about mid rookies at this end, Jock. Lists still to be finalised, rookies will be upgraded = happy days.


Dockerty, Shaw, Laird, Scharenburg, Vickers-Willis, Stewart ( Newman, Ryan)

Danger, Pendles, Hanners, Crips, Fyfe, Swallow, McLuggage, Powell-Pepper ( Freeman, Pickett, Graham)

Gawn, Sandi (Strnadica)

DEF: Shaw, Rance, Laird, Keefe, Newman, Vickers-Willis (Ryan, Stewart)

MID: Dangerfield, Hannebery, Treloar, Gray, Fyfe, Heppell, Swallow, Powell-Pepper (Balic, Hibberd, Graham)

RUCK: Gawn, Martin (Strnadica)

FWD: Dahlhaus, Lynch, Roughead, McCluggage, Black, Pickett (Smith, Eddy)

Not sold on starting both Heppell and Swallow, but Heppel is the only decent mid I could get for what I had left in the salary cap.


Will be good to see how Prestia goes in the next few weeks, maybe a replacement for Heppell?


Yeah he's probably the only other one at that price range I would consider, but his injury history is a real concern. Only played 22 games across the last two seasons.

Bruce paperclips

Like your structure! I agree with your sentiments on Hepp can't see him breaking 105, maybe M.Crouch?


DEF: Docherty, Shaw, Burgoyne, Scharenberg, Newman, Vickers-Willis (Hibberd, Ryan)

MID: Dangerfield, Pendlebury, J P Kennedy, Cripps, Fyfe, Heppell, Beams, Powell-Pepper (Gore, Freeman, Graham)

RUC: Gawn, Witts (Strnadica)

FWD: Riewoldt, Dahlhaus, Roughead, Bowes, Black, Pickett (Bolton, Eddy)


Def – Doc, Shaw, Laird, marchbank, vickers (Ryan, Stewart)
Mid – danger, pendles, coniglio, Fyfe, swallow, SPP, picket (miles brown graham)
Ruc – Gawn, Sandi (strndica)
Fwd – Riewoldt, Kennedy, dalhaus, Ryder, black, smith (daicos, eddy)


Missed scharenberg in Def.


So have the pies….
Sry Cheetah. Looks like your mids are a bit lean too?


Correct. The lesson here is do not drink and 'coach. Mitchell is in the middle.


Nothin wrong with a glug Cheetah, TMitch I take it?






Feedback appreciated


I see people mostly taking Scharenberg, what the thoughts on thurlow and whats the highest you would put him in D4?


Docherty, Shaw, Adams, Hodge, Vickers-Willis, T. Stewart, Z. Guthrie, J. Smith
Danger, Pendles, Hanners, Fyfe, Jobe, D. Swallow, SPP, J. Barrett 3x rooks
Gawn, Sandi, D. Cameron
Dahl, Heeney, Ryder, Roughy, Black, 3 x Rooks

865.4k to pick up 3 rookies


6 rookies even


Hi Amy, get J.Smith out as I believe T.Smith is the more likely to get a game for Melb and he is a FWD.
So regarding your 6 rookies;
BCKS J.Smith OUT Newman/Ryan IN
MIDS: Pickett, Hibberd, Balic
FWDS: Bowes, Eddy, T.Smith


Would love some feedback on this

Def: Docherty, Rance, Adams, Hampton, Newman, Vickers-willis (stewart, ryan)

Mid: Danger, Hanners, Rockliff, Fyfe, J.Steven, Swallow, SPP, Hibberd (Miles, Freeman, Bolton)

Ruc: Gawn, Grundy (strnadica)

Fwd: Dahlhaus, Greene, Heeney, Roughy, McCluggage, Black (Long, Pickett)

Still a few I'm not convinced on, Roughy, Grundy, Greene in particular and rookies of course are subject to change, would love to know some thoughts!


Roughy lock


Thoughts community
Doc, shaw, Adams berry Ryan Guthrie (wills Newman)
Danger pendles hanners treloar Fyfe Bont florent Pickett (hibbered drew fox)
Gawn goldy (caremon)
Dahlaus heeney Roughead Bowes Bolton smith (black eddy)


Haven't seen Goldy for a while. Think he'll be back big time soon

Murphy's Law

Seeing alot of similar teams I've put together a team based on the lone wolf structure.

Simmo, JJ, Williams, Murphy, Phillips, EVW. (Ryan, Guthrie)
Pendles, hannas, gray, bont, titch, menegola murphy, swallow. (Bolton, Clark, Freeman)
Grundy, Martin. (Strninca)
Roo, mccrae, hoskin-elliott, hrvoat, galluci , Smith. (Eddy, Miles)


I very much like the choice of going roo you should keep him in there young man


Docherty, Adams, Laird, Newman, Stewart, Vickers-Willis
(Ryan, Watson)

Danger, Pendles, Hannebery, Fyfe, Murphy, O'Meara, Swallow, SPP
(Undecided rookies)

Gawn, Grundy (Strnac)

Dahlhaus, Tom Lynch GC, Heeney, Jack Steele, WHE, Eddy (Black, Tim Smith)


Adams, Laird, Williams, Scharenberg, Hampton, Berry (Vickers-Willis, Ryan)
Pendles, Selwood, Treloar, Rocky, Fyfe, T.Mitchell, O'Meara, Swallow (SPP, Freeman, Miles)
Gawn, Sandi (English)
Dahlhaus, Macrae, Roughy, McCluggage, Black, Eddy (Daicos, Miles)
Feel free to chuck some feedback my way!

Bruce paperclips

Going Sandi with no ruck cover is ballsy bordering on reckless other than that solid!


Obviously rookies will change quite a bit, but I'm pretty sure this will be my structure:

Def: Shaw, Laird, Adams, Scharenberg, Hampton, Newman (EVW, Ryan)
Mid: Danger, Gaz, Rocky, Fyfe, Heppel,Swallow, SPP, Barrett (Gore, Hibberd, Freeman)
Ruc: Gawnstein (Strnadica)
Fwd: Dahl, Buddy, Macrae, Roughy, Black, McKay (Daicos, Eddy)

What ya reckon?


Would love some feedback, here's the current lineup:

Def: Docherty, Adams, Laird, Pittard, Newman, Vicker-willis (Stewart, Ryan)
Mid: Hannebery, Treloar, Cripps, Fyfe, Tmitch, swallow, SPP, graham (Myers, freeman, Hibberd)
Ruc: Gawn, Grundy (strndcica)
Fwd: Kennedy, Dahlhouse, Caddy, Black, Eddy, Balic (smith, battle)

Still got $125,100 dosh in the bank
Unsure whether to bolster my deplorable forward line by going D3 down back or make an effort to squeeze in danger



I think you need to start Dangerfield even at the price he is. Too big a risk to fall behind that many points so early on.

Myers is out for a couple of months so you'll need to find another rookie mid.

Cripps has a back injury that he's coming back from. Interrupted preseason so he'll be underdone which is a risk too.

Maybe swap Myers for a cheaper rookie ($123k or less. Maybe Bolton or Miles) and swap Cripps for Dangerman.

I just don't think it's worth losing all those points in the hope he will drop a lot in price.

I like your backline but that's probably because it's very similar to mine!


Thanks mate really like your thinking.

Will definitely make that trade happen! Had no idea Cripps was underdone and not willing to take that risk


Cheers mate. Ironically there's much less risk with Danger!


Laird, Burgoyne, Thurlow, Keeffe, VW, Stewart (Ryan, Smith)

Danger, Treloar, Rocky, The Bont, Fyfe, T Mitchell, Swallow, SPP (Barrett, Pickett, Freeman)

Goldy, Ryder ( Strnadica)

Rooey, Dahl, Caddy, Roughy, Black, Miles, (Eddy, Cameron)

Roomies subject to change, Thurlow is a stepping stone who I'm hoping will score well early. Ryder will be shifted to F6 and and an R2 will be traded in once I know who…

If Sandi shows up, might change around a little…

Also toying between The Bont and Selwood…


Edit: Should be GAWN and Ryder, dunno what I was doing there!!


i wouldn't think Bont would ave more than Selwood, maybe equal. So i would go with the POD (Selwood)




Def: K Simpson, H Shaw, T Adams, B Vince, C Mills, M Scharenberg (T Stewart, L Ryan)
Mid: Pendlebury, Treloar, Coniglio, Fyfe, M Crouch, Ainsworth, SPP, J Barrett (Mitch Hibberd, Pickett, Maynard)
Ruck: Grundy, Hickey (English)
Forward: Dahlhaus, Macrae, Gunston, Black, Eddy, Daicos (T Smith, Durdin)

That's right, no Dangerfield, no Gawn… There is method to my madness. Happy for some constructive criticism though.


Ballsy team best of luck mate


Round 13 you lose Adams, Sharenberg, Pendles, Treloar, Fyfe, Crouch, Grundy, Gunston, Coniglio, plus rookies. If you're going for the 'lose that bye round and smash the others', ok. If you're thinking rank then a re-thought is needed.


good on ya i feel this year is the year to gamble.


Very deep in the backline, maybe Mills or Vince to a Rookie and upgrade Hickey/Ainsworth.


get a life mate, you waste of space you black mofo horn dog

Russ in W.A

Adams, Laird, Mills
Mcgrath, Vickers-Willis, Stewart——Newman, Ryan

Dangerfield, Kennedy, Treloar, Fyfe, Dalhaus, Menegola, O'meara, Swallow——Powell pepper, Miles, Hibberd

Gawn, Sandilands——-Strndica

Macrae, Heeney, Ryder, Roughead, Galluci, Black——-Cameron, Eddy

$37.500 in the bank, subject to change, blah blah blah lol


Docherty, Shaw, Laird, Keeffe, Ryan, Vickers-Willis, (Stewart, Newman)

Dangerfield, Pendlebury, JPK, Rockliff, Fyfe, Titchell, Swallow, McCluggage, (Powell-Pepper, Barrett, Miles)

Gawn, Sandiballs, (Strnadica)

Dahlhaus, Ryder, Roughead, Black, Pickett, Cameron, (Smith, Eddy)

It's getting there.
Feeling it is very light on in both the Def and Forward lines but just can't bring myself to change that midfield.
Cheers for any feedback community. ๐Ÿ™‚


Hi community,

Peep a sneaky gander at this bastard.

Doc – Rance – Laird – Keefe – Evw – Ryan / Guthrie – Stewart.
Danger – Pendles – Gray – Fyfe – Tmitch – Swallow – Spp – Barrett / Hibbo jnr – Balic – Picket
Gawn – Boyd (crowd gasps!) Witts
Buddy – Mccrae – Tlynch – Orangeruff – Mwhite – C Mac / Smith Black.



Am I out of my mind with the risks in the midfield? Will swap JOM and Sandi if they don't line up for R1.

Def: Docherty, Adams, Laird, Hampton, Vickers-Willis, Stewart (Newman, Ryan)

Mid: Dangerfield, JPK, Treloar, Rockliff, Bont, Fyfe, JOM, Swallow (SPP, Mountford, Graham)

Ruck: Gawn, Sandilands, (Cameron)

Fwd: Dahlhaus, Caddy, Roughead, Black, Pickett, Bolton (Smith, Eddy)


just enough risk without being over the top, rate it mate.


Cheers. Hopefully it pays off!


Like this team with the contested machines in the MID's.
Maybe 1 too many rookies in the Forward line? Although there is not much to like there anyway. Possibly have 1 of JOM/Swallow. Depending on how much cash you have left, if you go JOM down to a 117k rookie, frees up $200k to possibly get you Black up to Ryder to cover Sandi. Think Ryder will be top 10 FWD anyway.


With the lack of mid rookies, I've gone for a flimsy sort of forward line.

Def: Shaw, Rance, Laird, Vickers-Willis, Newman, Ryan (Stewart, Smith)

Mid: Dangerfield, JPK, Rockliff, Sidebottom, Fyfe, Mitchell, Viney, Powell-Pepper (Barrett, Gore, Fisher)

Ruck: Gawn, Grundy (Cameron)

Fwd: Dahlhaus, Macrae, Black, Pickett, Balic, Miles (Bolton, Eddy)

31K remaining


Rance injured mate, think you should look elsewhere. I'd try to lose some cash in the midfield and upgrade a FWD Rookie into Roughead. Otherwise looking good!


Not sold on Roughead. Fair call on Rance.


Please get rid of viney he is shocking


Hes more a place holder with his price


Best of luck to everyone and have lots of fun


I like to pick expensive rookies at this stage as they're all fluid, and when the cheapo's solidify prior to round one it's an easy downgrade, freeing up some cash and hopefully inserting another premo. My team thus far, would appreciate the community's thoughts:

DEF: S.Docherty, T.Adams, R.Laird, E.Vickers-Willis, N.Newman, C.Hampton, (L.Ryan, T.Stewart)
MID: P.Dangerfield, S.Pendlebury, T.Rockliff, R.Gray, N.Fyfe, D.Swallow, A.McGrath, S.Powell-Pepper (O.Florent, J.Barrett, M.Hibberd)
RUC: M.Gawn, A.Sandilands (D.Cameron)
FWD: L.Dahlhaus, J.Macrea, I.Heeney, J.Roughead, H.McCluggae, J.Bowes, (J.Gallucci, B.Eddy)


I like it. Just be aware no backup for Sandi if Cameron not playing, and you lose Gray, Swallow, SPP, Bowes rd 9 when all 22 score. I'm avoiding Poort/GC until after the bye, aiming for Gray then. Also 6 premos (including Heeney, Sandi and Rough), in Rds 11 & 13.


Thanks mate, all valid points. To be honest I really haven't paid attention to any byes although I probably should! The Sandi risk is the big IF going into the season. Just can't bring myself to pick Ryder as DPP swing protection. May turn into Goldy if the cheap rookies turn up.


Hi guys just playing around with a few things.
Def. Adams laird tuohy scharenberg Newman Ryan ( Evw Stewart )
Mid. Danger pendles treloar jpk rocky Fyfe Powell pepper Bolton ( Barrett hibberd graham )
Rck. Gawn sandi ( strnadica )
Fwd. Dahlhaus macrae Roughead black Pickett smith (Cameron eddy )
With that team I have 433k spare at the moment but it won't be staying like that, the extra money can turn sandi into a premo ruck or even put in a 7th premo mid if there is a shortage of mid rookies. If the mid rookies turn up I can either strengthen the def or fwds.
Any thoughts appreciated thnx.


DEF: L.Montagna, R.Laird, K.Kolodjashnij, C.Hampton, N.Newman, E.Vickers-Willis (T.Stewart, L.Ryan)

MID: P.Dangerfield, S.Pendlebury, J.Selwood, T.Rockliff, N.Fyfe, T.Adams, M.Murphy, S.Powell-Pepper (M.Hibberd, T.Miles, Z.Fisher)

FWD: L.Dahlhaus, P.Ryder, J.Roughead, J.Bowes, A.Black, J.Pickett (J.Daicos, B.Eddy)

Only $1.4k remaining so would be interested to hear where people think I can find some extra cash from……


Hey Lach, Montagna picked up a calf injury recently so I'm not sure if he's going to play any JLT games. Might be underdone…

I think Adams should be in the backline since he's a DPP.

What's the thinking behind Kolodjashnij pick? Will he have a breakout year? I think it's better to invest that money in a rookie mid (Graham/Miles/Freeman) after moving Adams into his position down back.

Will Ryder be a top 6 fwd? With the cash you free up from Kolo, you could probably upgrade him to a more likely option. I don't think you don't need him as cover since you have two premium rucks.

Just my opinion though. Really like your midfield. You've given me some stuff to think about!

I am noticing that very few backlines are considering Shaun Burgoyne. Finished 2016 really well and may get more mid time with Mitchell and Lewis moving on. Clarko likes to use him in different roles, but if he is free to roam a little more he might finish within the top handful of defenders.


Got my eye on him. Need to understand his role though.


Like you said, Clarko likes to play him in different roles. It was usually in tight games Burgoyne plays midfield. Usually scores well later in the season

Team is solid but i question the backline. You are spending big on 4 backmen who you will be hoping will be there come seasons end. Where do you think doc shaw simmo and to a slightly lesser extent, monty and boyd will fit in come seasons end? If you want these in your team at the business end of the season, leave room for them by going 3 keepers or start with at least 1 of them.


Gambled on hartlett too, glad to see someone is with me :).


Ive had a good look at Hartlett as well but just cant get past his rd9 bye. That has made my decision for me


Def: Docherty, Laird, Zac Williams, Hampton, Vickers-Willis, Newman (Ryan, Stewart)

96k left, thoughts ?


Ok here goes nothing. Bare in mind there's still a lot of water to go under the bridge for this team but overall I'm happy with the risk rating and the bye set up. Still tossing up options for F3 as well.

Def: Docherty, Adams, Tuohy, Hampton, Vickers-Willis, Ryan (Stewart, Smith)
Mids: Dangerfield, Treloar, Rockliff, Fyfe, T Mitchell, M Crouch, D Swallow, Powell-Pepper (Pickett, Mountford, Bolton)
Rucks: Gawn, Goldstein (Strnadica)
Fwds: Dahlhaus, Caddy, Miller (or Heeney or Roughead), Gallucci, Black, Miles (Cameron, Eddy)

Be kind!!


Dont mind your team Sarah. Love the set and forget ruck structure. Still undecided on Goldy due to the interrupted preseason but even a half fit Goldy is better then most. Midfield is strong although not sold on Crouch. Also having all Fyfe Rocky and Swallow in the mids is risky i feel. All have injured pasts.
Tuohy could be a great pick this year. Just continue watching him in jlt to see if his role changes. If he stays on that back flank playing that sweeping role, cant see him averaging under 90. Whether he will be a keeper or not is another story. Good luck


Thanks Holty. Matty Crouch is my breakout risk/reward player. Don't usually pick a player like this but I'm willing to take the gamble this year just cos I feel like it!! We'll see how it works out. Also Sloane and Brad Crouch are injured at the moment and someone needs to step up in that midfield. He's got all the assets just needs to increase his TOG. I'm certainly watching the JLT closely regarding Miller, Heeney, Rough, Tuohy, Swallow and of course the rookies. Really liked what I saw from Tuohy against the hawks though, plus he has a very appealing bye! I'm pretty set on the rest of my premo's.

Thanks for your comments, all valid.
Good luck to you too.


Like the MCrouch pick. Idk about Doc (value) and Goldy (llimited pre-season). Would grab an F4 (e.g. Roughy) with the cash freed up.


Hello community, would love to hear your thoughts on my team:

Backs: Doc, Shaw, T-Mac, EVW, Newman and Stewart.
Mids: Danger, Pendles, JPK, Jelwood, Treloar, Swallow, SPP and Brodie.
Rucks: Gawn and Jacobs.
Forwards: Dollhouse, Macrae, Ryder, Rough, Miles and Bolton.

$118k in the bank.

Side is obviously subject to change after some rookies eventually show their faces.

Re: backs – While it's true that Shaw can dip in price through seasons, he is surely a lock to finish top 6. Taking a risk on T-Mac on the back of his finish to 2016. Adams too injury prone for mine. Laird an option, but is very popular. McVeigh???

Re: mids – Clearly taking a low risk approach with premos – all proven and all durable. May well get Fyfe or Rocky in there at some point before the season, but I'm finding it hard to choose between them (leaning towards Rocky) and they only play 18-19 game seasons, which counterbalances their high ceilings. Two sets of two premos from the same team is a bit of a concern. One may get the chop.

Re: rucks – I am far from settled here, but at the moment I have Jacobs. Quite possible that his drop in output was rule change and Danger related, but he was also playing injured. Have read Barron's injury updates about him with interest and will watch him eagerly in the JLT. Just reckon he can't go any worse than last year (so shouldn't lose value) and is extremely durable. If he is averaging 90 odd then I will upgrade him to whoever reveals themselves as the best R2 option. Concerns about Martin not being a lone wolf and the length of Sandi's teeth as well as his fragility.

Re: forwards – at the moment I have Ryder, but if I go Jacobs over Sandi then I probably don't need him. Might then look at Billings. Billingsbreakoutyear has been very convincing.

Thanks community.

With some feedback earlier, made some slight changes. As I said earlier, flimsy forward line due to lack of mid rookie options.

Ruck: Gawn, Grundy (Cameron)

Fwd: Dahlhaus, Macrae, Florent, Black, Balic, Miles (Bolton, Eddy)

Not entirely sold on Marc Murphy, but if he is back to his best and if he gets a straight run at it could average 105+


I'm with you on Murphy. It's been years that he has been fully fit leading into a season so this is his time. No more excuses. We know his ceiling but whether he can get back to that level is the question. If he can average you 105 that would be fantastic. 170k cheaper then a premo and only averaging 5 points less is a bargain.

Any assistance would be good, noticed alot didnt go with beams and murphy, whys that?


Beams has had an interrupted last few weeks. Only just been declared fit to play. He's also said his knee with be forever stuffed, and as such he will always need to be managed.


the fallen premiums can be great, offering good point scoring for dollar spend, but they are "fallen" for a reason, high risk and for many beams is just too risky.

If you think they can get back to near what they were, great investment, but there are very few who will ever be keepers so a valuable trade will still be needed.

Let me know thoughts as per usual rookies may change. This is my preferred structure with it appearing to be thin in mids re: rookies.


pendles, treloar and Adams, that is alot of black & White. maybe look at one of the swan midfielders to spread your risk


I don't necessarily agree with that comment, although they are all pies midfielders they are also not all on the same line, look at the Sydney midfielders you mention, 3 of them sit in the top 8 mids.

Pendles is a shoe in for top 10 and i believe trelaor is also on the verge of Ultra premium, whilst adams as a defender has great upside( if he can stay on the park).

My question is if he was going in with hanners jpk and mills, would you have suggeted swapping for a pie.?? And if so, why?

neil Demons Delight

Think Derek is refering to byes mate Sydney have a different bye to Collingwood…cheers Neil

Jager Bombs

Adams was rance unitl the other day when it sounded like rance was sturggling with his hammies. Understand ur point, have not even looked at byes yet trying to settle on my structure first which i think i have now. So now i just play around with the premiums. Definately going pendles and trelor though both will be top 8 mids by the end of the year.


Def: Montagna, Adams, Hodge, Hartlett, Scharenberg, Vickers-Willis, (Stewart, Ryan)

Mid: Dangerfield, Selwood, Bontempelli, Cripps, Fyfe, T.Mitchell, Gallucci, Powell-Pepper, (Hibberd, Bolton, Graham)

Ruck: Gawn, Witts, (Cameron)

Fwd: Dahlhaus, Miller, Ryder, Roughead, Bowes, Black, (Smith, Eddy)


Love the Hodge pick.

don't like Witts at R2, but it has been discussed enough already. Would prefer to see Ryder at R2 and swing him forward once you have worked out your keeper R2.

I doubt Scharenberg will play round 1.


My plan is to have Witts or Sandi at R2 in the hope they will make money but I have given myself some room to move by having Ryder as a DPP in the fwd line and Cameron as a DPP in the rucks. Effectively if need be I could switch the two around so that Ryder becomes R2, WItts/Sandi R3 and Cameron F8.


Doc, Laird, Tuohy, Hampton, Vickers, Newman, (Stewart, Smith)

Gawn, Sandilands (Cameron)
Dahlhaus, Macrae, Heeney, Ryder, Roughie, Black (Pickett, Eddy)



you'll have a lot of trading to do Kev. Only see 8, maybe 9 keepers in your starting team.

i have Tuohy high on my watch list after JLT 1, but for $30k more you could get Hodge – tried and tested Gun


cheers, thanks for the feedback Derek. Probably the reason I run out of trades each year. Hodge is on my list of too many injuries players. Back to the drawing board. ty ๐Ÿ™‚

Rick Grimes

Simpson, Laird, Mills, KK, Vickers-Willis, Stewart (?, ?)
Danger, Hanners, Pendles, Rocky, Fyfe, Swallow, Bowes, Powell-Pepper (?,?,?)
Gawn, Sandi, Strongdicka
Dahl, Lynch, Greene, Caddy, Black, Pickett (Smith,?)

At this stage I'm going all in on the Sandi man, even if he's a giant marshmallow.

Depending on how rookies lineup round one, there's a chance I go four deep in defence with a possible punt on Hrovat. The mid premos haven't changed for a few weeks.


really like Simpson as a POD to everyone going Docherty

neil Demons Delight

Appears like you have a decent bank Rick.yeah Sandys a worry back in my team .Has the same bye as Grundy.LIKE THE LYNCH choice but greene burnman or keeper Mids similar to mine but Bowes for Taranto and def also similar Shaw 4 Simmo great team mate CHEERS NEIL

MID: Danger, Hanners, Priddis, Gray, T Mitch, D Swallow, J Gallucci, SPP (Hibberd, Graham, Jarman)
RUC: Gawn, Sandi (Strnadica)
FWD: Dahl, Caddy, Wingard, Rough, Black, Pickett (Smith, Eddy)


swallow, Gray and wingard all out round 9. (Eddy and SPP should be gone by then)

good team though. great defense.


Cheers for feedback Derek, Gray historically a strong starter so don't wanna miss those early points, Wingard value and could be harder to trade into later if he gets on a roll (he's due for his up year but still feels like my biggest gamble even at reduced price), many sides will have Ryder and will be in the same Port/round 9 bye boat to an extent, Swallow also will be heavily owned and hopefully upgraded by start of round 9.

PDPODs (Proven Durable Points of Difference) the key for me this year, premos may have lower averages but higher total points over the season with fewer sideways injury trades getting me to full premo quicker. Guys like Sandi and Rough aren't really PODs so wouldn't expect to fall too far behind the pack if they go down.


Port start the season with Syd, Freo, Crows, GWS. Robbie & Chad will have to be at the top of their games to score well..


Both love a big occasion and a clutch goal. 2-3 winnable games there. Gray's lowest score against Crows last year was 129. He also came home strong coinciding with Wines improving his defensive game and protecting the ball carrier. Could be a big year for Port midfield with Ryder back also. Got that feeling about it.


DEF: Docherty Montagna Hampton Vickers-Willis Newman Stewart (Long Z. Guthrie)
MID: Dangerfield Kennedy Treloar Zorko Fyfe T. Mitchell Heppell Powell-Pepper (Parfitt Graham Cousins)
RUCK: Gawn Mumford (Strndica)

Love the 2 defender structure.
You have 7 out in round 11. Too many IMO.
Montagna has a calf. Consider Laird or Adams
Kennedy or Zorko to Selwood or Zerrett
Buddy to Caddy
Are all options

Rooster XXX

Good news on the Sandi front:


Nice one Rooster. Great to see


are the that convinced about him though, Jonathan Griffen playing this weekend, is he getting primed for a call up

MID: Dangerfield, Hannebery, Treloar, Cripps, Fyfe, T Mitchell, Foote, Powell Pepper (Wigg, Pickett, Parfitt)
RUC: Gawn, Sandilands (Strnadica)
FWD: Dahlhaus, Gunston, Caddy, Heeney, Black, Miles (Cameron, Eddy)



I like Hartlett. Can't fit him in at the moment but would like to (currently a 3 premo defence for me and have doc, shaw, adams)


Peoples thoughts on starting gawn with both ryder and nank. Then upgrading one of ryder/nank during the season to the 2nd best ruck this will ensure you have the best 2 rucks in sc and the best rf in sc for backup


why do you need both. Ryder at R2 will work


Not a bad option Dukes


No reason it couldn't work but with the news coming out of Freo re Sandi I think you're just better off with Ryder F3/4 and Sandi R2 and a rookie ruck/fwd at R3. Then just upgrade Sandi and keep Ryder for F6/ruck backup.


Or Nankervis instead of Ryder.


Would want to see Nankervis actually cement a spot in Richmond's 22 first, and also post some relevant scores, before I went near him


i think Boyd is a better option. In Dogs best 22 and with Roughie gone down might go ok


Def: Shaw, Adams, mills (or laird let me know which one)
Vickers-Willis, thurlow, Newman (Ryan and Stewart)

Mid: danger, Selwood, treloar, gray, Mitchell, Fyfe,
Swallow, Powell pepper. (Balic, Bolton and hibberd)

Ruc: Gawn, sandi (if I go with mills, if not I go with Ryder as R2) (Strindica)

Fwd: Dahl, heeney, Ryder (mcclugage if I go with Ryder in ruck), roughy, black and miles ( eddy, smith)



I don't mind the Mills call. I think Laird is already at his ceiling, Mills could achieve that level for $100k less.


Any thoughts on this rough draft would be appreciated community,

L.Dahlhaus, J.Macrae, P.Ryder, J.Roughead, A.Black, J.Pickett (S.Bolton, B.Eddy)



Not convinced on J Kelly in defence – I think your defence looks a bit thin. Coniglio a very good player but I think you're paying top dollar and Cripps has a back injury


Yeah look im not 100% on Kelly either. I will cop the thin defence in exchange for the bolstered mids though. Cripps' back will be fine, will have a look at him this weekend though

neil Demons Delight

not so with me marc I think Kelly is a great pod ave 90 will be in top 8 def and also def except long is quite good mid is full of pods and fwd line tops /a great team Dan well done
