FreovCarl

Firstly – my apologies

I had a big day down at Moorabbin yesterday which extended a little further into the evening than I’d first anticipated. By the time I got home to lodge this report I’d lost my trousers, had a tat of Phil Narkle inked on the arse, and thought it best I get a reasonable nights sleep.

So I’ve watched the replay early this morning and have plucked out the most SuperCoach significant performances I observed.

Remember also friends, CoachKings play at home is on like bloody Donkey Kong tomorrow, get on board here!

SundaySession

FREMANTLE

Nat Fyfe | MID | $573500

38 disposals, half of them contested. 86% disposal efficiency, 7 marks, 6 tackles. 176 Supercoach points. Lips plump. Hair flowing like a manicured Lion. Pity Freo play Geelong round one, takes him out of the captaincy loophole mix for those with Danger. Lock him in harder that you’ve ever locked before.

Lachie Neale | MID | $612800

Showed little sign of the knee trouble that hampered him earlier this preseason. Prolific with 37 possessions, a game-high 7 clearances and 121 Supercoach points. Stay disciplined, not at this price with a limited preseason regime.

Aaron Sandilands | RUC | $308200

Don’t be concerned by the 68 Supercoach points. The massive prick just continues to prove me wrong. Just the 65% game time, sat out for almost all the final quarter to rest the limbs. His 40% JLT hitout to advantage rate together with the relative ease he appears to be getting around the park remains arousing.

Cam McCarthy | FWD | $203600

His is by far and away the #1 ranking moustache in the AFL as it stands. Extremely impressive. He rolls with the muzz, the undercut, the pony tail and the ink.. what a package. 6 goals on his way to 86 Supercoach points from 88% game time.

 


Griffin Logue | DEF| $180300

Did enough with his half a game to suggest we have something to throw in the mix at some stage. 8 kicks and 3 handballs at 82% efficiency and streamed forward with the long frizzy locks for an impressive sausage in the last term. 56 Supercoach points.. not bad from the 18 year old given his TOG

CARLTON

Sam Docherty | DEF | $591600

Yes, 116 Supercoach points but nothing to write home about last night. Did most of his damage when the game was cooked.

Patrick Cripps | MID | $585500

Came out of the blocks strongly before being managed (65% game time) to end with 69 Supercoach points. 4 kicks and 22 handballs! Would have tempted many to overlook a severely stuffed preseason. No doubts this bloke will be a Supercoach beast for many years to come, however I strongly suggest you leave him out of your starting squads. Its not the handball factor, he can deliver without a high a kick to handball ratio, its all about the nackered preseason.

Marc Murphy | MID | $432500

27 disposals at a low 63% efficiency for 64 Supercoach points. Solid time on ground as well (80%) and did nothing to suggest that he’ll return to anything near his best anytime soon. Nup.

Caleb Marchbank | DEF | $236100

Is it wise to lock Caleb into your SuperCoach bank this early in March? You see, his name is Marchbank. Therefore to suggest we should bank on him in March I believe is quite humorous and a clever use of our language. He’s grown as a footballer over summer. Great smarts. Has an impressive footy brain on his shoulders and he knows how to work the angles. 22 touches, 7 marks, 4 R50’s and plenty of valuable intercept action. Now needs to be considered. 85 SuperCoach points.

Billie Smedts | MID/FWD | $217100

Just don’t think we’ll ever see Billie get a solid run at it, even at Carlton. 67 Supercoach points but decision making questionable at times and round 1 selection far from assured.

Jarrod Pickett | MID/FWD  | $123900

Thank Christ. GOOD BOY. Locked himself into the Carlton best 22 last night and did some very good things. Started out slow, but built in confidence as the game wore on for 86 Supercoach points, 3 impressive goals all from just 60% game time. Back in my squad after last night.

Thoughts folks?

Jock

Fyfe is Lyfe. Thank christ a rookie (Pickett) actually did something!

Damon · 11/03/2017 at 11:42

What about Kade Simpson Jock? 32 disposals, 17 of them kicks! Been heavily overlooked this season, battling with Shaw at D1 for me.

    Zee888 · 11/03/2017 at 11:49

    I'v got him. Lock.

    BrownlowBoy · 11/03/2017 at 11:53

    Im running Simmo, Shaw and Laird

      Tophawk · 11/03/2017 at 11:58

      Running with those 3 blokes as well. Managed to squeeze Marchbank in at D4. That kid looks the goods.

    The Bont · 11/03/2017 at 11:53

    In my side at the moment , in less than 5% of teams and no chance of getting the dreaded tag like docherty or heater might be . Like him as a pod

    Kev · 11/03/2017 at 12:01

    Shaw for ceiling, Simmo for consistency. 90% TOG for Simpson

Luskin Star · 11/03/2017 at 11:56

Didnt see the game Jock, did McCarthey play purely as a fwd?

    John · 11/03/2017 at 13:34

    Yes he did

Kev · 11/03/2017 at 11:59

Considering Marchbank very strongly. 84%, 85%, 86% TOG over his 3 JLT games for SC returns of 76, 86, 85 respectively.

Averaged 19 disposals @80, 7 marks

    INPieman · 11/03/2017 at 12:26

    Looks like there is value to be had there Kev

    Bandaid solutions · 11/03/2017 at 12:38

    If he keeps that output for most of the first half of the season anyone know what his price rise would be roughly?

      INPieman · 11/03/2017 at 12:42

      An 80 Av wound take him to 411k at max price

    Cr0magn0n · 11/03/2017 at 15:15

    Lock him in your team and throw away the key

INPieman · 11/03/2017 at 12:03

Mr Pickett welcome to my bench. For every 80 your going to give me a 27. Park your butt on the pine your not moving from there

    leedy · 11/03/2017 at 22:58

    At the game last night Pieman. Pickett was everywhere he should have been. Impressed indeed.

Canny the Manny · 11/03/2017 at 12:03

Went through 3 whole tissue boxes watching Nat Fyfe play last night. 1 of them was for the tears of joy that were shed when seeing the great man back playing God-like football, and the other 2, well, were used for the same purpose most guys use tissues…

    OldOcker · 11/03/2017 at 15:58

    Yeah I have never blown my nose so much.

    Phildev · 11/03/2017 at 17:43

    Nice review Manny

    Derek · 11/03/2017 at 20:32

    I hate seeing people put up their team and show Fyfe at M5. Put him where he belongs, M1.

    Thankyou

Rivo · 11/03/2017 at 12:04

Thanks Jock for the post under duress. I'm sure there are many stories to tell from the Moorabbin pilgrimage last night…

Seen enough from this game to lock in these 4:

Doc D1, Marchbank D4, Fyfe M4, Sandi locked in R2. Pickett maybe back in depending on how Miles and Galluci go.

    Tyruddanaut · 11/03/2017 at 16:11

    I'd trust him over galluci

Zach · 11/03/2017 at 12:16

Shaw, laird, Adams
Marchbank, Hampton, EVW
(Stewart, Guthrie)

Danger, Pendles, Jpk, Martin
Fyfe, t.mitchell, o'meara, Powell- pepper
(Barrett, Pickett, Hibberd)

Nankilands
(Strandica)

Dalhaus, McRae, Roughead
McCarthy, turner, Bowes
(Eddy, black)

Finished top 2000 last 3 years!
Comfortable with this team and have 130k left over I'm going to leave aside for an early upgrade for one of the ruckman but could use it somewhere else

Any thoughts cheers guys

    Rivo · 11/03/2017 at 12:27

    R2 Zach?

      Rivo · 11/03/2017 at 12:32

      Scrap that! I see it now – Sandi/Nank.
      Team looks solid though F4-6 has a little too much risk. Better to swing Nank into Fwd line and go with a more solid R1. Consider Taranto too.

Spiro · 11/03/2017 at 12:22

is anyone considering Sam Jacobs?

    INPieman · 11/03/2017 at 12:28

    Seems to be better options around

    Bandaid solutions · 11/03/2017 at 12:40

    It's an emotional ride with him, if he could improve his HTA he'd be worth a look!

MarkV · 11/03/2017 at 12:22

Simpson Vs Docherty for D1. Both played 22 last year, both look like they will end up in the top 5 defenders for the year again. What does the community think?

    Luskin Star · 11/03/2017 at 12:25

    Docherty for mine. Younger so has the potential to improve

Aaron · 11/03/2017 at 12:24

Any thoughts guys ?

    Rivo · 11/03/2017 at 12:35

    3 Crows in Def line some risk re byes. Not sure if Smith will play too. Otherwise very solid team. Any room for Taranto over Bowes?

      BlakeyP · 11/03/2017 at 14:24

      2 of the crows are rookies. Would be traded by the time their bye comes around

Dac Zawson · 11/03/2017 at 12:25

As a rule of thumb I only select premos that I believe will be Top 8 (DEF/FWD) or Top 10 (MID).
As it stands at the moment, who do people see the top 10 mids to be by seasons end?
Personally I'd say Dangerfield, Fyfe, Pendles, JPK, Hannebery, Treloar are the 6 most likely but the next 4 spots are up for grabs

    INPieman · 11/03/2017 at 12:33

    Throw a blanket over the next 20 blokes

    Cr0magn0n · 11/03/2017 at 17:17

    1. Danger
    2. Fyfe
    3. Hannebery
    4. Treloar
    5. JPK
    6. Pendles
    7. Jelwood
    8. Dusty
    9. Neale
    10. Bont

      Top 200,000 player · 11/03/2017 at 19:51

      Kinda crazy how far out of the collective mind Luke Parker is right now… He could burst into the 110-120 range if his rise continues as it should based on his talent, age, experience and history… Could be a MASSIVE POD this season. Food for thought…

        Carl · 11/03/2017 at 22:59

        Limited preseason I thought?

Northernsoul74 · 11/03/2017 at 12:32

Scharenberg out it pies team today. Another to likely scratch for round 1.

    INPieman · 11/03/2017 at 12:40

    And josh Thomas & didn't see lachie Keefe on the team sheet either

      Northernsoul74 · 11/03/2017 at 13:33

      Or Pendles.

    SCaddict · 11/03/2017 at 12:49

    Scharenberg –> Marchbank … anyone?? 😉

      Burndog · 11/03/2017 at 13:33

      I just made that exact change. I don't see Scharenberg hitting the park regularly enough.

      Blaknight · 11/03/2017 at 13:47

      Exactly what I did.

Spiro · 11/03/2017 at 12:40

Defenders
Rance, Adams, Laird, Tuohy, Hampton, VIckers-Willis, (Stewart, Ryan)

Midfielders
Dangerfield, Pendles, Coniglio, Fyfe, Beams, Omeara, Swallow, Taranto, (powell-pepper, Freeman, Wigg

$31,400 Salary
Thoughts?

    Tyruddanaut · 11/03/2017 at 16:15

    Heavy with the midpricers

    Lazza · 11/03/2017 at 22:09

    Rance has an Achilles issue …. is sure and steady but won't get you ceilidh Ng scores … Heater is a better option.

Clokey · 11/03/2017 at 13:13

I thought Kruezer looked very good Jock. He jumped over the top of Sandi a few times for a paltry 15 hitouts BUT ALSO, EIGHT clearances, 7 Tackles, 12 kicks, 5HB, and a goal from 79% TOG. His 12 contested pozzies last night was, more than all 3 Freo rucks combined, a team high for the blues and only surpassed on the night by Fyfe and Neale.

He's only 30k more than Nanky and he aved around 90 most of his career except l/y which was his 2nd worst SC year ever. If Nank is a genuine option Kruez is a genuine POD

    Mike · 11/03/2017 at 13:16

    Absolutely not going to happen

    Clokey · 11/03/2017 at 13:19

    Kruezer is up against Nank round 1 and could easily pumpout 130+. He knocked out an easy 147 against big Max in Max's breakout year and has a lot of 110+ scores in his short career. He's more of a Ruck/Mid/Fwd.

      leedy · 11/03/2017 at 13:50

      Kreuzer is a worthy consideration however his durability is my concern. Strung together 20 odd games last year but generally just too injury prone for mine. Mind you, if he puts together a full season you could be on a POD winner. Too risky?

    wombatsfc · 11/03/2017 at 16:00

    I wouldn't do it Clokey, maybe if he had dpp like nank but not as a pure ruck

      Tyruddanaut · 11/03/2017 at 16:17

      DPP can distract people from who's good or who fits in their team

    Cr0magn0n · 11/03/2017 at 17:19

    Don't do it

      Paul · 12/03/2017 at 22:09

      Phillips is out injured for a while and Gorringe is a spud that won't get a game. Kreuzer will ruck 80-90% of games with support from Rowe or Casboult. He doesn't get heaps of taps but his ground work is as good as any ruck in the game. If you select him in your team you won't be disappointed by his points output.

Winter · 11/03/2017 at 13:32

O'Meara & Shoenmakers
OR
Swallow & McCarthy or Taranto

    Blaknight · 11/03/2017 at 13:50

    O'Meara & Taranto?

      Winter · 11/03/2017 at 17:28

      Can't afford Blaknight

    Tyruddanaut · 11/03/2017 at 16:17

    Shoemakers won't play. The hawthorn line is just too strong

      Derek · 11/03/2017 at 21:31

      He is in best 22

The BONT · 11/03/2017 at 14:42

Treloar has been the first person i put im my side and it won't change the way he is playing at the Moment

    INPieman · 11/03/2017 at 15:59

    I'm surprised your first pick wasn't yourself Bont

      The BONT · 11/03/2017 at 16:07

      Sorry he was my second

The BONT · 11/03/2017 at 14:43

Is T.Adams a better option than Rance

    Holty · 11/03/2017 at 15:08

    He should average more but with rance he is set and forget. Doesnt miss many games.
    There are big injury risks with Adams but he will score very well when on the park

    Lazza · 11/03/2017 at 22:19

    Rance has injury issues too.. the risk is the same … Adams will score much higher this year,

Supercoach Spud · 11/03/2017 at 16:22

My current midfield is Danger,Pendles,JPK,Fyfe,Heppel,Shuey who should i get rid of and get in with 50k in bank

    Winter · 11/03/2017 at 17:27

    Upgrade shuey surely

    Lazza · 11/03/2017 at 22:27

    Heppell out. Any one of 15 players to choose from who will do better.

    Phillips worth a look?

      Lazza · 11/03/2017 at 22:34

      DPP, impressive JLT, natural progression since drafted. Definitely worth a look as a FWD.

      Troy · 12/03/2017 at 05:29

      As Admiral Akbar would say, 'It's a trap!'

Jack · 11/03/2017 at 21:34

Marchbank at D4 with curtly d5 too risky
