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!
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
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.
