Geelong v Essendon Supercoach

WOOD IS GOOD

It was a tale of two halves out at Bendigo. The Bombers led by as much as 48 points in the 1st half, but ended up 22 points to the negative at the final siren.

Enough about that though, this game was so Supercoach relevant it practically had me dripping from the privates. Speaking of privates, Joel Pant-Wood was the man of the night with 32 touches, 2 Dagwood Dogs and 145 SC Pasties. Tantalising to say the least considering that he currently sits in only 4.6% of teams.

The JLT is finished for these clubs which means the plums are ripe for the fondling, without further ado, let’s dive crotch-first into the meat of this thing:

ESSENDON

ANDREW MCGRATH | ESS | $211,800 | DEF/MID

Came on for his first run in the 2nd term and didn’t do much sadly. Only gathered 7 touches and you’d have to be striking him off your shortlist for Round 1 after today.

JOBE WATSON| ESS | $453,300 | DEF

Jobulous the third put in a performance reminiscent of his efforts at the Siege of Leningrad. 27 Disposals and 5 Clearances showed that he’s still got it…55% disposal efficiency held him back from a monster score though (84 SC).

ZACH MERRETT | ESS | $606,400 | MID

The kid is a star, plain and simple. 24 touches, 7 tackles, 1.0 but only went at 58% which limited him. Plenty of other star players at a similar price so you’ve probably got a lot of faith if you’re picking him.

JOSHUA BEGLEY | ESS | $117,300 | FWD

Entered the fray in Q2, quiet start with only 2 handballs but he got better as the game wore on finishing with 9 disposals and 2 tackles. Might be worth a look at F8 but there are better options I’d say.

MICHAEL HURLEY | ESS | $464,200 | DEF

Hurley loomed as a very good defensive smoky at one stage, he was very quiet today though. He manned Tom Hawkins for the day and didn’t get as much opportunity to rebound. I still feel he will average over 90 for the season but expect a KPD score every now and then.

DYSON HEPPELL | ESS | $513,300 | MID

Didn’t set the world alight with 24 disposals and 5 tackles. I maintain that he is a bit of a nothing pick considering that he:
a) Can’t be selected to generate cash
b) Won’t finish as a Top 10 Midfielder.

Move on.

JAMES KELLY | ESS | $523,400 | MID/DEF

The former Cat was pretty quiet with just 14 disposals playing as the loose defender. But to be honest, he is SC irrelevant regardless.

GEELONG

ZACH TUOHY | GEEL | $443,200 | DEF

THE POTATO MAN! This guy has Irish Whipped his way into plenty of teams since the JLT series began. He played his usual role behind the ball and was constantly looked for by his team-mates. His decision-making was a bit iffy at times and he only finished with 76 SC but its clear he will play a very crucial role in the back half for Geelong. I still feel that he will get more attention once the real stuff starts and given his limited score sources its important to be ultra-careful in picking him. It should boil down to this question: Do you think he will finish as a Top 10 Defender?

ZAC SMITH | | GEEL | $421,500 | RUC

Cross him off your list, shared ruck with Stanley and didn’t do much around the ground.

MITCH DUNCAN | GEEL | $502,200 | MID

Put in a good game with 21 disposals and 4 tackles but is a Crouching’s Rum-Can-Snake away from being picked for our sides. As the proverb goes: ‘Carpe Diem’ which roughly translates into ‘Don’t pick oddly priced morons in your Supercoach side’.

PATRICK DANGERFIELD | GEEL | $716,900 | MID

38 Disposals, 9 Clearances, 7 Marks, 5 Tackles. You either pick him or you don’t. Simple.

TOM STEWART | GEEL | $117,300 | DEF  

Started up the ground and moved back into defense later. Had minimal impact and didn’t trouble the fine penguins at Champion Data either, only 45 SC. Still worth a bench spot in our defences though.

JACKSON THURLOW | GEEL | $267,700 | DEF

Started very slowly but worked his way into the game sublimely. Finished with 17 Disposals @100%!!! Scored 87SC which means he has three JLT scores of 80+, very awkward price and you’d have to have some transition plan in place if you pick him, but he has definitely proven that he’s got the fruits for the caper.

JOEL SELWOOD | GEEL | $606,600 | DEF

BOG-Wood. Was absolutely exceptional after a quiet JLT2, very viable substitute to Dangerfield …$100k cheaper too! He almost always drops in price mid-way through the year though so patience might pay off too.

BRANDAN PARFITT| GEEL | $117,300 | MID

I really rate this kid, I’ve been watching him since JLT1 and it’s safe to say that Stephen Wells has pulled another gem out of the depths of his wazoo. Had 18 disposals @77% along with 7 Inside 50’s and 2 Goal Assists. Looks great across half-forward and he’d look even better on your mid bench.

A big night for all concerned. I hope everyone is nearing the completed core chromosomic nucleotide of your respective teams.

Make sure you listen to the podcast (Have a jumbo box of Kleenex’s ready along with some lotion).

    Fuzzy · 12/03/2017 at 21:00

    I like the look of Chad Fletcher.

      Northerner · 12/03/2017 at 21:46

      I thought he died in Las Vegas?

        Northerner · 12/03/2017 at 21:47

        That's right he did but they brought him back.

    BrownlowBoy · 12/03/2017 at 21:06

    Mate you ask this on every thread.

    Derek · 12/03/2017 at 21:24

    I don't care for either. Not sure why you need a WCE mid, they don't have a ruckman

    Russ in W.A · 13/03/2017 at 05:23

    Ben Cousins 🙂

Fuzzy · 12/03/2017 at 20:57

Watson a defender? I'm sold 😮

    Dean · 13/03/2017 at 16:20

    Well picked Fuzzy, If only id be all over him too as a defender.

      BOG · 14/03/2017 at 12:06

      And Jelwood too?

NickMacMan · 12/03/2017 at 20:58

Thoughts?

B: Adams, Laird, Johannisen, J.Hunt, Marchbank, Hampton
(Vickers-Willis, Stewart)

M: Hannebery, Treloar, Bont, Fyfe, Titch, O'Meara, SPP, Hibberd
(Freeman, Barret, Picket)

R: Gawn, Santi (sterndica)

F: Dahlhaus, Caddy, Roughead, J.Elliot, McCarthy, Black
(Eddy, Cameron)

Also have $284,900 left

also don't know if i should trade bont and manners for danger and beams

Cheers.

    Eric_the_Red · 12/03/2017 at 21:01

    Bont to Danger.

    Fuzzy · 12/03/2017 at 21:03

    I feel as if J. Hunt and J. Elliot are way too risky as picks.

    I think there is a little bit of doubt over whether Elliot will be fit for round one? I'll need to double check.

    Jon · 12/03/2017 at 21:07

    1 word Danger

    Shake n bake · 12/03/2017 at 21:25

    Im not sold on caddy.

    Tyruddanaut · 13/03/2017 at 20:54

    Bont and treloar for danger and beams

Dusty's Neck Tatts · 12/03/2017 at 21:03

How would everyone rate Parfitt's chances of getting a game in round 1?

    BrownlowBoy · 12/03/2017 at 21:08

    Not likely I would say. If Scooter Selwood doesn't get up he is a chance but I wouldn't think he would line up round 1. Cockatoo and a couple of others may be in front of him for a round 1 birth and they would be coming into the team as they didn't play last season.

Tommo09 · 12/03/2017 at 21:05

Thoughts on my team?
Rookies will change subject to R1 teams

Def: Doch, Laird, Tuohy??, Hampton, Vickers-Willis, Stewart (Ryan, Guthrie)
Mid: Danger, Gaz??, Bont, Fyfe, TMitch, Steele, O'Meara??, SPP (Barrett, Wigg, Freeman)
Ruc: Gawn, Sandi (Cameron)
Fwd: Dahl, Lynch, Ryder??, Rough??, Miles, Parfitt (Butler, Eddy)

Not sure about Gaz. Might swap for Selwood
Tuohy, Omeara, Ryder and Rough I am not sure of

$226.7k left for upgrades but don't know what to use it on

Thoughts?

    Carl · 12/03/2017 at 21:16

    Few picks I wouldn't have – Gaz, Steele (in the fwd's if you're going to pick him) Ryder (will ave 80ish). Freeman and Ryan havnt been seen all JLT

      Tommo09 · 12/03/2017 at 21:18

      Didn't realise Steele was DPP
      In fwd for Ryder
      Selwood in mids

    Fuzzy · 12/03/2017 at 21:16

    I would advise against Steele. However, his JLT form has admittedly been good so if you are sticking with him, he should be in your forward line.

    Personally, I think selecting Ryder just as back-up for Sandi is a poor option unless you think Ryder can average 90+.

    Fuzzy · 12/03/2017 at 21:17

    Also, be careful selecting Gaz and Lynch – Suns have round 9 bye.

      Tommo09 · 12/03/2017 at 21:26

      who should I trade Gaz for? Am a bit unsure

        Fuzzy · 12/03/2017 at 21:31

        I would go JPK. However, you can't go wrong with Selwood or Hannebery either.

          Tommo09 · 12/03/2017 at 21:51

          Am a Swans fan so have never been a fan of starting with a swans premo mid
          Too many players sharing the points

            Holty · 12/03/2017 at 22:33

            Dont get sucked in tommo with all this sharing points business at Sydney. There big 3 were in the top 7 mids last year. If you started with all of them you would have been pushing for a top 1000 finish

            Kev · 12/03/2017 at 22:36

            Hanners, JPK, Parker all averaged 110+ last year

            Baps · 12/03/2017 at 22:38

            And yet both JPK and Hanners both finished with a 114 average, Titch also with 105…

              Holty · 12/03/2017 at 22:55

              Dont forget Parker Baps.

      FotherMucker · 12/03/2017 at 23:24

      Why is the round 9 bye so significant ?

        Scott · 13/03/2017 at 03:18

        Not sure, but a defo reason is that you may want to trade those guys out, but who t0 as so many players are yet to have their bye. Seems to make sense…another reason could be some more $$ appreciation before upgrading with the later byes

    Holty · 12/03/2017 at 21:21

    Lots of money to spend on so many you are unsure about. You would be better off swapping them for 2 keepers and 2 rookies if you are that uncertain.

    Wood · 12/03/2017 at 21:41

    Ryan is injured. Won't play for a little while yet.

    Tommo09 · 13/03/2017 at 07:56

    Updated team

    Def: Doch, Laird, Tuohy, Hampton, Vickers-Willis, Stewart (Melican, Guthrie)
    Mid: Danger, JPK, Selwood, Bont, Fyfe, TMitch, Omeara, SPP (Barrett, Wigg, Hibberd)
    Ruc: Gawn, Sandi (Cameron)
    Fwd: Dahl, Lynch, Rough, Steele, Mile, Butler (Eddy, Parfitt)

    Tyruddanaut · 13/03/2017 at 20:55

    Ditch Gaz but otherwise good team
    \

Richy · 12/03/2017 at 21:09

Thurlow or Marchbank?
Both priced very awkwardly but just wanted to get some thoughts from the community

    NickMacMan · 12/03/2017 at 21:16

    considering the ball will be in the blues backline a lot i reckon marchbank will get plenty of it

    Phil · 12/03/2017 at 21:48

    Marchbank because;
    Very highly rated
    Cheaper
    Not coming back from ACL

JungleChampSwanny · 12/03/2017 at 21:16

Watson and Selwood should be listed as MIDs not defenders. Other than that, quality write up

Lopez · 12/03/2017 at 21:17

Who do I bench outta Jy Simpkin, Brett Eddy, Jarrod Pickett?

    Kev · 12/03/2017 at 22:38

    Ask that again when round 1 comes along

    Russ in W.A · 13/03/2017 at 05:28

    Eddy has to start I'd say, 5 goals yesterday.

      Kev · 13/03/2017 at 09:13

      Won't do that every week. 7 touches, 1 goal, 40SC against the Tigers last week

Finnius123 · 12/03/2017 at 21:24

Tuohy looks like he is going to be the cats man down back this year. At only 440 could be a steal as he doesn't have simpson/doch stealing ball of him down back, but he may also receive more attention as he is the only real ball user for the cats in the back bit of the ground. Could provide great value and free up 80 odd thousand as a substitute for vince/johanissen. The question is whether he can lift on his previous supercoach sores by at least 10-15 pts on average, and that is a big ask in order for him to become a top 10 defender. In saying that he is in my team at the moment, but I really want to know what everyone else thinks. Thoughts?

    johnno2908 · 12/03/2017 at 21:51

    Was at the game. They are clearly looking for him, looked really good in the first half. Couple of dodgy handballs, but great kick! Also took a fair few kick ins.

      Tank · 12/03/2017 at 22:04

      Has the stink of Harry O'Brien all over it. Preseason bolter when he's getting no attention because no one cares but when the real stuff starts he'll get shut down and burn you. Worth a risk at his price but not for me.

      Northernsoul74 · 12/03/2017 at 22:35

      He's so easy to shut down when it gets real.

    Baps · 12/03/2017 at 22:41

    He's a 'wait and see' for me. If he does lift his game to the next level, we'll only be paying an extra 60k on top of his starting price. I'd much rather pay that later on than risk starting him and having him sitting in no-mans land at D6 forever.

    Cr0magn0n · 13/03/2017 at 19:28

    I'm agonising over this too. I'm not sure what to think. Sorry, I know that didn't help!

    Tim Smith · 12/03/2017 at 21:49

    one two many premium in ya midfield, you'd want pepper to play at M8, your defence is weak so i'd pick up another premium there seeing newman ain't gunna start round 1 most likely! Your rucks are very risky as well having no real premium, forwards are good but i'd maybe try upgrade Nank to a premium ruck by downgrading that mid premium to a defence premium then downgrade mccarthy as well to Butler/Houston

      Holty · 12/03/2017 at 22:17

      Hi Tim. Before you say his midfield is too strong, name 4 midfield rookies who are likely to play rd1 because im sure a lot in this community would be interested in ur answer. People are going extra strong in their mids this year because at present we dont have much of a choice with lack of rookie options. I do agree with what you have said but you must have 4 rookie options if you start spp at m8.

        Northerner · 12/03/2017 at 22:28

        With Preuss likely for Rd 1 I'm going with my loophole in the mids this year. That's an option you could consider. I'm going with O Junker. Great name for a loophole.

        Northerner · 12/03/2017 at 22:34

        We'd all be stuffed if SPP goes down. Not a lot of options and little point scoring bench cover. Just need to hope more emerge at the right time once we get going.

        Tim Smith · 12/03/2017 at 23:07

        Pepper, Barrett, Picket, Hibberd, Parfitt, Miles…….. theres plenty and before you say it there is enough other forward and backman rookies to pick these DPP in the mid

          Holty · 13/03/2017 at 00:16

          If all these get named round 1 Tim, the whole community will be absolutely delirious with excitement. Fingers crossed

    Abel · 13/03/2017 at 00:26

    Great team. Stick with it. Def a good place to be light this year.

    Tyruddanaut · 13/03/2017 at 20:56

    Tooo many premo mids and weak backline

Holty · 12/03/2017 at 21:40

I think i certainly went one year early on Steeles breakout year. He is certainly matching it with that strong Sydney midfield

    BrownlowBoy · 12/03/2017 at 21:46

    He looks good. Would he be a better option than Roughy?

      Holty · 12/03/2017 at 22:23

      No most certainly not. Roughy is proven and is just using jlt for warm up. Steele could possibly average 90+ this year but he never has before so still uncertainty there.

    Lots of similarities to my team. Have a look at Taranto as a fwd for Butler with your extra cash. I think he'll produce decent on field scoring.

    Kev · 12/03/2017 at 22:49

    Looks good BONT. Black being left out is a worry, do they really need him week in week out?

    Snowsky · 13/03/2017 at 10:08

    Looks very safe, good structure. Gawn has some downside risk but is bloody expensive to get if that downfall doesnt allow the shark move….

Damian · 12/03/2017 at 21:55

G'Day community
Been really temted by the nankilands combo and looking at SC b/e and projections it seems a no brainer
Nankervis Sandilands
R1 75 projected 67 break even R1 74 57
R2 75 52 R2 73 22
R3 78 56 R3 80 26
R4 75 59 R4 64 34
R5 78 62 R5 67 51
R6 74 67 R6 65 68

My feeling is that both will average 95+ in these 6 rounds
Lots of points to be had
The extra cash meaning stacking the midfield and forward line to cover the points maybe lost to say a gawn/grundy
I love this site and rarely comment but the insight of all of you is amazing and only makes me want to be better at this game
Jock i have never donate to the site and it makes me sick to my guts love to contibute to make this site better (can't see how that is possible)

Lets make a new rule – you no longer have to say 'rookies will change based on Round 1 Teams' or any other such derivative of this term when listing your teams. We ALL know this. 100% of us are in that same predicament. Now that there is going to be a massive uploading of teams for the next 10 days (daze!?), I'm happy to just call it right here that we are all in the same boat RE rookies. Ps. I love Jock.

Ryder, sandy (Stnadica)
Dahlhaus, Higgins, Roughead, Nankervis, Taranto, Black (Eddy, Cameron)
Good good in midfield and defence. Rucks are weak but have back ups in forward line.

Dac Zawson · 12/03/2017 at 23:37

What are the pros and cons for taking Docherty, Simpson and Shaw?
I'll only start with one, so I'm curious to see who people personally choose.

    Nick · 12/03/2017 at 23:45

    I have Simpson and shaw, both have proven to be good. Docherty could fit in. Can't go wrong with any of them though.

    Randomcliche2 · 14/03/2017 at 00:55

    I'm not locking in any. My gut is least confident about not having Shaw.

Jeremy · 12/03/2017 at 23:39

Is this the year to go misprinted madness… I can't remember a year in recent memory where there have been so many viable picks. My team currently has Beams, Nankervis, Sandilands, Roughy and Steele. Am I crazy?

    Nick · 12/03/2017 at 23:46

    Nope I have all except Steele. Not sure how much he is but already have roughy and Nankervis in there.

      Bomber56 · 12/03/2017 at 23:58

      I have them as well, but swap Steele for O'Meara plus Swallow. Mid price madness, but if they can all hang in for 6 to 9 rounds will be a huge uplift.

    MrGrumpy · 13/03/2017 at 12:53

    I currently have 9 players 250k-500k… a real lack of rookies this year!

    Randomcliche2 · 14/03/2017 at 00:58

    There are plenty more viable ones as well. I too have had upto 9 misprints (lols) in mine

Jake · 13/03/2017 at 00:09

Thoughts on my team please? 32k left

DEF: H. Shaw, T. Adams, R. Laird, C. Hampton, M. Hibberd, T. Stewart
(A. Otten, E. Vickers-Willis)

MID: P. Dangerfield, S. Pendulbury, A. Treloar, N. Fyfe, T. Mitchell, D. Beams, J. O'Meara, D. Swallow
(S. Powell-Pepper, J. Barrett, J. Pickett)

RUCK: A. Sandilands, J. Witts
(D. Cameron)

FWD: N. Riewoldt, L. Dahlhaus, J. Macrae, T. Nankervis, T. Taranto, A. Black
(D. Butler, B. Eddy)

    Dac Zawson · 13/03/2017 at 00:23

    Nankervis, Witts, Sandilands, Swallow, O'Meara, Beams, Fyfe, Adams all have risks associated with them.
    That's more than a third of your starting lineup.
    Try reduce that amount of risks by at least 1 or 2.
    Team has potential to be very decent if you can make a few good switches

      Jake · 13/03/2017 at 00:32

      I'll concede the whole ruck brigade, including Nank is the biggest risk, I hardly want to pick him.
      However, it seems the only way I can fit the blokes I want.
      Ideally I'd go Gawn + Sandi but that has risks of its own and I would still want a Nank/Ryder F4 cover for Sandi anyway.

        Derek · 13/03/2017 at 08:41

        My #1 take away from last year was; don't start with players who have ANY injury risk.

        #2 was starting mid pricer MUST be fallen premiums.

        Yet I have Sandilands and Mills in my team…..

          Sana · 13/03/2017 at 17:09

          I'm breaking rule 1 for Fyfe

          Dean · 13/03/2017 at 20:57

          Derek are you saying Sandi is your only player that has injury risk & Mills is your only mid priced player?

          That would mean you don't have injury risk players such as: Fyfe, Beams, O'Meara, Swallow or Otten
          Or mid-priced players such as: Tuohy, Roughead or Marchbank just to name a few of the most popular players most have.

          This would mean you must have a TON of rookies in a season with very few rookies available.
          I'm almost positive you have at least a few of those I mentioned.

Juzzy · 13/03/2017 at 00:11

Poser question community ,

After the JLT who were the premiums/ midpricers you dropped.

I got rid of Goldstien and Hartlett.

    Derek · 13/03/2017 at 08:32

    ADAMS >> Shaw

    Tommo09 · 13/03/2017 at 08:40

    Swallow

    Kev · 13/03/2017 at 09:09

    Biggest casualty was Gawn. With a bunch of question marks over the ruck setup at the Dees 645k was too much to part with

      Damien · 13/03/2017 at 10:43

      I'm just hoping Stefan Martin is named lone wolf ruck round 1.

    Randomcliche2 · 14/03/2017 at 01:04

    Gawn Harlett Pendlebury Touhy* Buddy Caddy
    *might return.

Bird of Prey · 13/03/2017 at 00:18

Aaron Black is in a ton of our teams but did not get a gig today… What's the G-O is he not best 22!? At $137k this could be something to pay attention to. Job security might not be as tight as we are all hoping…

    Matze · 13/03/2017 at 08:52

    He played in the VFL practice match on Saturday and kicked 2. As a cats fan I don't think he's best 22 yet and we keep on shoving Taylor up forward then I don't think Black will get too much of a look in. Ideally I'd like to see us drop a ruckman and bring black in and potentially have three tall forwards which has worked in the past. Based on how poorly the experiment has gone so far I think they need Black in there. But who knows with Chris Scott..

      Noirlust · 14/03/2017 at 11:06

      Our tall timber is quite quiet extensive and so is our forward players atm. Wont get a game for a while id imagine.
      Unless harry goes back to D

Nick · 13/03/2017 at 00:42

Looks good. Had Priddis last year, not again though. T Mitchell is your man there. He came form the best mid in the comp and now at Hawks his going to have a big year. Forward line is the problem this year I went for a lot of players mid average also. Dahlhaus is a must there and that's about all. I went a strong mid and defence. Rucks is where money can be made, so went cheaper there also.

Nick · 13/03/2017 at 00:48

What you all think of my team
Simpson, Shaw, Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, Stewart, (Otten, Guthrie)
Danger, Jpk, treloar, Fyfe, T Mitchell, Beams, O Meara, Swallow. ( SPP, Pickett, M Hibberd)
Ryder, sandy (Stnadica)
Dahlhaus, Higgins, Roughead, Nankervis, Taranto, Black (Eddy, Cameron)
Good good in midfield and defence. Rucks are weak but have back ups in forward line.

    Russ in W.A · 13/03/2017 at 05:32

    If it were my team I'd ditch Swallow for a Rook and upgrade Ryder to Goldy and Higgins to…anyone else, and Nankervis to Jack Steele.

macca · 13/03/2017 at 00:59

Titch or BOnt
huge question

    Carl · 13/03/2017 at 01:41

    Both

      Lachie plowman · 13/03/2017 at 05:32

      Lachie plowman is an absolute lock

    Kev · 13/03/2017 at 09:10

    Titch

Krups · 13/03/2017 at 08:38

After looking at the jock mag, there are a lot of team internet teams going around. Thinking a lone wolf team may be better

Rivo · 13/03/2017 at 08:42

This is looking a little cookie cutter now. Worth getting Beams or Steele here, or leave as is? And what about Caddy to Macrae?

Doc, Shaw, Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, Otten (Melican, Stewart)

Danger, Pendles, JPK, Fyfe, M.Crouch, JOM, Swallow, SPP (Barrett, Miles, Hibberd)

Gawn, Sandi (Strnad)

Dahl, Caddy, Rough, Nank, Taranto, Black (Picket, Eddy)

    Rivo · 13/03/2017 at 08:45

    And only $7k left.

      Kev · 13/03/2017 at 09:06

      Beams in 33% of teams, Steele 15%. Eddy a better rookie priced KPF than Black, who may not be best 22 anyway.

        Rivo · 13/03/2017 at 09:12

        Thanks Kev. So who takes F6? Eddy on field, Black to bench, or replace Black?

ekcjoe · 13/03/2017 at 08:48

I think the proverb is actually "caveat emptor".

    Tibor · 13/03/2017 at 12:24

    Could be right there, I think carpe diem means something about picking Sam Day from the suns. "Seize the Day". ???? He has a bad injury so that would be foolish

TigerMan · 13/03/2017 at 08:54

T.Adams and Nick Riewoldt
Or
Docherty and caddy?

    Kev · 13/03/2017 at 08:57

    Adams and Roo

ado · 13/03/2017 at 09:21

thurlow or marchbank????????

cheers community

    TigerMan · 13/03/2017 at 09:45

    Marchbank, the ball will be in Carltons back half a lot this season

    jet · 13/03/2017 at 10:16

    Or bonner?

    Danners · 13/03/2017 at 10:18

    Thurlow, he hasn't scored under 80 the whole JLT and isn't a KPP

    SCDamien · 13/03/2017 at 11:17

    Marchbanks disposal efficiency coupled with his intercept marking, and the fact that the ball will be the Blues defence more than attack puts him in good stead to get some good cash generation. Potentially rising to 411k as his peak price point if he averages what he averaged in the JLT series.

Tim · 13/03/2017 at 09:55

Is it risky starting your team with Laird, Hampton, Heath Shaw and otten and Luke Ryan ( otten and ryan on the bench) because all of them have the round 13 bye. Or is it early days and we will have upgraded most of them by then?

    Dac Zawson · 13/03/2017 at 12:00

    Otten and Hampton should be upgraded by then
    Also Luke Ryan won't play round 1 so it'd be a better idea to trade him in after he eventually plays
    So my answer to your question is no, it is not too risky

JamBak · 13/03/2017 at 10:12

Does anyone know when the Sydney vs saints significance report will be posted?

    Scotty · 13/03/2017 at 21:19

    Definitely waiting to see that crucial document…:)

BrownlowBoy · 13/03/2017 at 10:16

Derek I know you are keen on Mills (or were keen), have you changed Mills to Lloyd?

Danners · 13/03/2017 at 10:17

Not too much to take away from this game. I'm feeling more comfortable running Dangerwood after their 283 combined. Thurlow could look like one of the better defensive midpricers, Tuohy could also be the same as it seems he's going to fill the void of Enright. I had a feeling from draft day that Parfitt would be getting early games with Geelong similar to how Gregson, Murdoch and co have in their first years. Should be a safe rookie pick

    BrownlowBoy · 13/03/2017 at 10:25

    You reckon Parfitt will get early games? I'm unsure as Cocky, Lang, GHS, Murdoch will all be pushing for games. Out of the best 22 last year Geelong lose Enright, Bartel, Caddy and Kersten (if you count him in best 22), So they will either play Black in Kerstens role or just roll with Hawkins, Taylor and Stanley/Smith resting down there. Tuohy replaces Enright. Thurlow comes in off the half back flank. Then you have blokes like Cocky, Lang, GHS, Murdoch, Ruggles, Kolo, Bews, Parfitt all fighting for a couple of spots in the best 22.

      Noirlust · 14/03/2017 at 11:12

      Horlin smith will be in that list and if he is in the best 22 has to be a locked cow

Geronimo · 13/03/2017 at 11:38

Like many of Jock's community I have altered my team every couple of days.
Currently I have an 11-4-15 structure if I go with O'Meara instead of Ward which gives me a $145K kitty for adjustments. My mid 8 are Danger, Hanners, Treloar, Gray, Fyfe, Beams, O'Meara and SPP.
What is best – Ward 12-3-15 structure or O'Meara 11-4-15?

    Randomcliche2 · 14/03/2017 at 01:16

    It's about scoring points. You'll score more points and save a trade versus a slightly quicker upgrade…but with that slightly quicker upgrade you are still starting from behind….

rob · 13/03/2017 at 12:17

Would you rather

T Mitchell (or any mid under 575K besides Fyfe) at M6 and Brodie at M7

Or

Beams at M6 and at Jaeger M7

Thanks community

    Geronimo · 13/03/2017 at 13:12

    Similar to my question above Rob. Do you go with a premium or two mid pricers. I am not sure. Perhaps the riskier second option.
    Steele, who did well again, poses another mid priced fwd option

    Jake · 13/03/2017 at 22:07

    I'd go the second option, but I'm picking Titch too.

    Randomcliche2 · 14/03/2017 at 01:18

    Beams sells himself. Equal value to titch.

BrownlowBoy · 13/03/2017 at 12:50

Coniglio out for 6 weeks. Opens up a spot for Taranto.

    Rick Grimes · 13/03/2017 at 14:17

    Sitting as F6 for me.

    Nogoflo · 13/03/2017 at 18:22

    I will be replacing Coniglio with a premium.

      BrownlowBoy · 13/03/2017 at 18:25

      Yes but Taranto is a chance to play round 1 now, as it stands not many rookies are locked in for round 1.

Horsesforcourses · 13/03/2017 at 13:18

Steele is a must have after another good game.

    Nostradamus · 13/03/2017 at 21:08

    What Steele has done during the JLT serious means nothing once the season proper starts, I don't see Steele averaging over 70

    I take what goes on in the pre-season games with a grain of salt, they are only good to watch a few rookies and even that this season means very little due to the lack of rookies.

Moonshine · 13/03/2017 at 13:44

Dear Jock.
Three weeks ago I followed the prompts and paid for my Jock Reynolds magazine. Three things:
1. The cost (including excessive posting charge) has been deducted from my account.
2. I haven't received the magazine yet, and
3. I haven't received a receipt.
Can you please find the time to explain why this is so. Apparently it is important reading before the start of SC and if it is not received in the next couple of days, I wish to cancel my order.
Thank you.

Not really fussed about bench, and will probably change in heeney for Higgins when he comes back. Also thinking about putting rance in for Docherty or Tuohy.
Thoughts?
Cheers.
