SuperCoach RD3: The Heroes, The Villains, The Damned.

Published by Jock on

The Supercoach heroes, the villains and the DAMNED of 2018

For ruck’s sake. Get rucked. You’ve got to be rucking

kidding me.

In this very round last season, the Community sat back and marvelled as two of the game’s most powerful juggernauts, Max Gawn and Todd Goldstein, went head-to- head in an epic duel which saw both men pump out 170+ scores.

Fast forward a year and the two most prolific big men of SuperCoach 2016 returned horror totals to leave their coaches tearing their hair out.

Gawn (28 SC) did his hamstring early in the match against Geelong, while Goldstein (52 SC) didn’t even have an excuse for his deplorable performance, failing to fire a shot despite playing a full game.

Owners of Brodie Grundy (104 SC) and the Nank (107 SC) – Sandi (103 SC) – Witts (114 SC) combination would have sat back with wry smiles as they watched all of this unfolding.

The downing of Gawn ensured yours truly had another average round, returning a total of 2171 and placing me further away from the top 1000.

The Heroes

It’s been a case of no pre season, no worries for Rory Sloane (168 SC), who was been simply enormous for the Crows to start 2017, averaging 130 from his first three outings including huge tonsin the past two matches. Had a massive 24 contested touches against Port and 9 tackles.

St Kilda veterans Leigh Montagna (164 SC) and Nick Riewoldt (161 SC) both enjoyed monster performances in their win over Brissie. Leeroy is looking like a must-have premo defender while those who held onto Rooey will be giving themselves a massive pat on the back after he produced one of the great comebacks following what initially looked like a career-ending knee injury in Round 1.

Marc Murphy (158 SC) is proving to be one of the value buys of the season following a clinical exhibition in the wet during Carlton’s upset victory over Essendon, while Dustin Martin (155 SC) had 40 touches, 21 of them contested, to go with 2 goals and 15 clearances in another enormous display, which helped his side to a strong victory over West Coast. The same can be said for David Mundy (143 SC) who inspired Freo to an upset win over the reigning premiers.

Patrick Dangerfield (138 SC) and his running mate Joel Selwood (121 SC) chopped up the Demons with 73 possessions and four goals between them. Shane Mumford (137 SC) was colossal in the ruck for GWS and gathered 19 touches at 100% efficiency to go with his 33 hit outs, while Geelong big man Zac Smith (127 SC) enjoyed a sound match himself.

Marcus Bontempelli (133 SC), Brendon Goddard (131 SC), Jack Ziebell (124 SC), Andrew Gaff (123SC), Nathan Jones (123 SC) and Ollie Wines (122 SC) were arguably their side’s best players in losing teams.

Collingwood pair Scott Pendlebury (125 SC) and Taylor Adams (122 SC) continued their strong starts to 2017, as did Bulldog duo Tom Liberatore (131 SC) and Luke Dahlhaus (124 SC). If Melbourne’s Alex Neale-Bullen (127 SC) keeps displaying this sort of form we will need to sit up and take notice.

The FWD/MID, who is priced at around 317K, is currently averaging 90 SC, up from around 50 last season.

The Villains

Todd Goldstein (52 SC) owners must be getting seriously concerned after what the saw on Saturday afternoon. With Pruess in the side he split his time between ruck and forward and returned a pitiful score despite spending 88% time on ground. With Goldy’s average in losing sides unflattering and North not expected to win too many this season, there is now a realistic chance Grundy or Martin overtake him as the second best ruckman in the competition.

For about the millionth time in his career, plenty got seduced by Shaun Higgins (58 SC) only for him to turn around burn those who traded him in. At least he didn’t get injured, though. Josh J Kennedy (66 SC) and Sam Mitchell (65 SC) were both victims of a clever Richmond game plan to limit their influence and it worked to perfection.

After tonning up in the opening round, Zach Tuohy (66 SC) has been underwhelming in the two matches since and looks unlikely to finish the season as a top 8 defender. Could well be a Daniel Rich-like selection in 2017. Christian Salem (76 SC) could not back up last week’s heroics while Bernie Vince (53 SC) also had a very quiet game for the Dees.

The Redeemers

After a horror run last season, Brisbane ruckman Stefan Martin (125 SC) is reminding us all of his quality. Big Stef has enjoyed a prolific start to 2017, currently averaging 116 SC after three rounds.

Those who traded out Dan Hannebery (112 SC) might be regretting their decision after he had 31 touches and nine tackles on Friday night. He was on track for an even bigger score before a quiet last quarter.

Sydney team-mates Josh P Kennedy (107 SC) and Zak Jones (103 SC) bounced back from disappointing performances in Round 2 but it wasn’t enough to get the winless Swans over the line.

After an underwhelming outing in Round 1, Alex Rance (121 SC) has rewarded his coaches with two quality performances since to reaffirm his status as a top 8 defender candidate. Aaron Sandilands (103 SC) was instrumental in Freo’s win after a quiet outing last week, while Gary Ablett (112 SC) played a starring role in Gold Coast’s shock thrashing of Hawthorn.

Jarryd Roughead (99 SC) booted three goals for the Hawks in his best game of the season while David Swallow has atoned for missing the first round, rewarding his owners with a fine 117 SC.

The Prodigies

We are being flooded with rookies into the SuperCoach market and while many are performing like you would expect – inexperienced first-year players – there have also been some excellent little gems capable of holding down positions in our starting line ups.

Nic Newman (105 SC) tops this list and is on the bubble this week, making him an almost must-have. Newman has been compared to Heath Shaw which certainly bodes well for SC scoring and his spot in the Swans looks relatively secure after two promising performances.

After a quiet start to their AFL careers, both Sam Petrevski-Seton (114 SC) and Brandon Parfitt (99 SC) put in surprise performances, with the pair now set to make their owners some decent coin.

Adelaide’s Andy Otten (98 SC) continues to stake his claim as one of the defence rookies of the year, while Curtly Hampton (82 SC) produced his best game for the season.

Braydon Pruess (87 SC), Jake Barrett (74 SC) and Dan Houston (68 SC) are continuing to flourish, while Will Hoskin-Elliott (71 SC) was lucky he kicked the winning goal on Friday night or else he was headed for a sub-60 score, which would have been a disappointment to the thousands of coaches that traded him in.

Daniel Butler (79 SC) is providing Richmond with a real spark up forward and his owners should feel comfortable starting him on their grounds, while Sydney’s Robbie Fox (78 SC) looked a lot better in his second match and is on the bubble this week.

After excellent starts to their careers Andy McGrath (63 SC), Caleb Marchbank (56 SC), Sam Powell-Pepper (52 SC) and Will Hayward (52 SC) were quieter this week while Mitch Hannan (32 SC) has looked out of his depth after bursting on the scene with an impressive 96 in Round 1.

Debutants James Parsons (60 SC), Griffin Logue (52 SC), Todd Elton (45 SC), Sam Durdin (44 SC), Hugh McCluggage (43 SC), Harley Balic (38 SC), Jordan Dawson (32 SC), Jarrod Berry (32 SC) and Tim Smith (29 SC) will all take time to adjust to the rigors of playing at the highest level.

Kayne Turner (52 SC) and Brett Eddy (42 SC) are far too reliant on kicking goals to boost their scores, while Jack Bowles (43 SC) and Teia Miles (21 SC) continue to be underwhelming.

The Damned

Max Gawn (27 SC) is expected to out for a month minimum with a hamstring injury and needs to be traded, unless you want to be brave and play Pruess on field or swing Nankervis into the ruck.

Grundy and Stef Martin are looming as the best replacement options at this stage.

Tim Taranto (49 SC) just isn’t getting the same opportunities in a talent-stacked GWS line up that he did in the pre season and at over 200K, his owners might need to look to move him on, especially as you can be getting the same sort of output from a 123K rookie.

Josh Caddy (35 SC) either looks underdone or overweight. Whatever his issue is, you can’t be happy fleshing out 480K for a premo forward option that’s only going to gather 15 possessions from a full match. Looks the classic pre season trap at this stage.

Patience must be fast running out for Jaeger O’Meara (44 SC) owners. It was always going to take him a while to get up to speed with the modern game after two years out and he looked very ordinary against his old side.

How did you go Supercoach Round 3?

Marc Murphy must have?

Kyle

I would say no. Definately wont keep up this form an gonna drop off a lot sooner or later. Probably already played his 3 best games for the year i think. For the people who took the risk and started him it payed off big time but now i think it is more just people chasing points cause my gut says he wont finnish top 10 mid.

INPieman

Yep. 3 weeks ago

Jimmy

I think he is. Even at 510k he is cheap. Sure he may not get 158 every week but why couldn't he keep up with good form. The guy has always been a jet and injuries have kept him down. Looks fantastic and will be up over 600k in no time.

Kyle

Going gawn to nank and hibberd to newman. Leaves me with 280k in the warchest for upgrades. Figured i would move nank up forward for WHE an bring in a grundy martin or mummy depending on form closer to byes. Thoughts on this community?

Jeffreyhead

I like it mate. Keep an eye on any Melbourne mids you have too, gawn out for half the season potentialy

Donner

Not too keen on the Mummy myself, I tossed up between Grundy and Martin for a Gawn Gawn, but ended up going Martin

Craig

2311 and 2265 last 2 weeks. 17000th overall. getting in Newman and Swallow (or maybe cheaper guys) next week leaving $475000 in the bank to move on 2 premos next week. don't have gawn or any other fallen premos, your opinion. Is this a good move?

SCaddict

Newman should be a non negotiable for nearly every single coach who doesn't already have him this week. Swallow could be a very "nice to have" depending on your structures and other priorities this week. If it helps you to get an inconsistent rookie off the field then it's probably worth doing as it looks like Swallow can be counted on to score 80-100 most weeks whilst making some decent coin.

However with every midpriced acquisition there is an element of risk attached as we have seen with JOM. One spudly score and it really throws a spanner in the works for their price appreciation over the next month.

Craig

Do you think instead of Swallow straight to a premo my M8 is Priddis, M9 PowellPepper so premo back eg Adams

INPieman

Highlights from the team meeting this morning at Pieman’s firing range:
Gather round lads. Right. Shocking week fellas. I’m not impressed. I’ve got 2 bullets here but I wish I had 6 to use on you pricks:
SImmo. What the bloody hell are you doing forward of centre. You’re not Buddy Franklin. Get back down defence. Get the bloody pill & find your teammates ya prick! You’re on notice
Gary. Nice comeback mate. You grew in confidence as the game went on. But I need more from ya son. Next week I want 45 touches & 4 snags
Wittsy. Why couldn’t you do that at Collingwood. Sensational son. I’m bringing you off the pine this week
Jaegar. You were supposed to shove it right up em. What the bloody hell was that. I’ll give ya one more week. But if I had 3 bullets here today you’d be copping one
Tom Stewart. Absolute rubbish Tom! You were so shit Pickett almost had twice as many ranking points as ya. Lift
Pickett. Mate at least your consistent at being shit
Hampton Otten Barett & Parfitt & Butler. Well done fellas. You put in & delivered
Nank the Tank. You’re the bloody find of the season. Keep it up son
Steele. I need more from ya son. I’m not sure on you yet. Get your ass off the bench
Taranto. I paid a lot of money for you ya prick. I’ll give ya one more but you’re on notice
Todd Bloody Goldstein. Ya rolled your ankle 2 weeks ago & I wasn’t impressed. You left the door open for a rugby player to get a gig & now he’s taken your role & your backing him up. Todd tough decisions have to be made & I’m going to have to ask you to make your way over to that stake over there & whack that blindfold on
Pruessy welcome to the team son. You look like a beast. Keep it up. Park your ass on that bench over there
Hibbo Jnr. You were pathetic in round 1 & I haven’t seen your name mentioned since. Make your way over to Todd & whack that other blindfold on
Nick Newman. Welcome to the team. I bloody love your lazer like precision. So your first task is to take this gun & put a bullet between the eyes of those useless pricks Todd & Hibbo
Now as for the rest of ya. I’ve got a lot of cash & a lot of bullets. Lift or I’ll shoot every one of you bastards!!!

Captain Risky

Yep, Would love a few more bullets this week as well

INPieman

I reckon I'd use 4-5 if I could this week Captain

Captain Risky

And I don't have Gawn or Goldy! .. Very pleased to have started Sandiwitts with Preuss on bench and Nank Fwd.

But 4 trades would have been nice this week.
It's funny how much priorities can change week to week. The gods certainly do make this game interesting. Hibbo has been on my bench since week 2 and has to go, would also love to punt O'meara, Hannan and Taranto too but at least they are still playing and can wait another week.

Hoping a couple of rooks make a bit more of an effort this week, I don't need anymore duds!

INPieman

Those that started with Sandiwitts & Nankilands would be very pleased to see Gawn go down & Goldy become irrelevant. Parfitt & barett were surprises. Hope they can do it again

TBone

Mate if i had two bullets to use for my whole team, id probably use both on Jack Bowes

INPieman

Some really poor scoring rookies this year. And Bowes is right up there

TBone

You jumping on Swallow this week Pieman?

INPieman

I'd like him but other priorities. The bye is a turn off as well

Jeffreyhead

Funny as. Good stuff mate.
My bullets have hit marsh and bowes, in comes newman and swallow. Bloody marsh and bowes topping out after one price increase. Psh.

Rosco

Ha ha, that was funny as

T bag

Thanks for the laugh pie. Your all over this stuff, who do u think I should get for big max? Any help appreciated.

INPieman

No Worries T Bag. Safety option I'd go Nank or Grundy if you don't have them. If your looking for an opportunity to fix some other areas with a cash injection consider Preuss or Witts. They both still have money to make & can score

Mich

Kade Simpsons looked absolutely lost the last 2 weeks, he was lucky to crack the ton in round 1
He's my biggest headache at the moment, im seriously considering trading to Adams who looks very soild so far

INPieman

He was playing more as a Mid/Wing. Even saw him at centre bounces. I didn't like it. He did look lost. Anyway I'll give him another week

Mich

Yeh he had no business being up that way. With a breakeven of 181 i dont think i can afford waiting another week, even though he's playing gold coast

Danners

Gee you're on fire today Pieman! Some of the funniest stuff I've seen. This firing range reminds me of a time about 4 years ago when Jock and the boys invited some of the Supercoach greats and did exactly what you did on a podcast. Hopefully the players are reading

INPieman

That may have been the day Ryan Griffen met his fate at the firing range Danners. He got the double barrel shotgun that day, Rhys Mathieson style. I don't mind lending material for a good laugh

gator59

Great stuff pieman.. thinking i need a gattling gun for my heap of crap..

Mudguts

Nice one Pieman. Amusing and incredibly accurate.

HallyMate

Moved up from 150 to 62 this week, Taranto to Swallow for only 50k looks pretty tempting, what will Swallow's price be by his round 9 bye if he averages 95?

Kev

Around 410k

Ethan

O'Meara to witts via 2 dpp's or to hayward

Tyruddanaut

Wits isn't a keeper and is too expensive for price appreciation so Hayward

Tank

Having a serious think about holding Gawn, swinging the Nank into the ruck and playing another rookie on field in my forward line.
With the dominance from the bearded one we've seen in recent times, I'm sure many will use two trades on him trading him out and back in after his return.
Is this crazy talk or an option that all Gawn owners should be considering if they have the ability to do so?

FiL

Crazy talk. He's out for way too long.

Kyle

Its a risk but could maybe pay off. I will be trading him tho. With a 28 in his rolling average is is gonna lose a lot of coin. Hopefully he is gone for just the 4 weeks like first said and can pick him back up at the bye rounds.

Mike

Ive thought about thr same thing. Vhat to do ,vhat to ,vhat to do

jez_m

A forward rookie won't give you the same amount of scoring output as a premium ruckman. If it was only a 2-3 week injury I'd hold, but its looking like a lot longer than that so I'd be trading and looking at a ruck which will last you the whole season. Grundy or Martin for mine.

Kev

600k sitting in the pine for that long is madness

Jeffreyhead

Most likely out for over half the season, and he's not going to pull a reiwoldt. Move him on mate, too much cash on the bench for too long.

INPieman

Just been confirmed he going to miss 12 weeks. You have to get rid of him

Jonathan

Do you guys recon ollie wines will be a top 10 mid by the end of the year?

TBone

possible, but risky

Steeeve

Goldstein has to go-stein.
Option one: Straight swap to Nick Reiwoldt via Nank swing.
Option two: Drop to rookie (Cameron) and create massive war chest then pounce on fallen premo such as Hannebry the week after.

What do you think?

JibJib

1, better to generate $$$ via rookies, otherwise point generation will suffer.

jez_m

Hold. If he stinks it up again you should still be able to sideways trade next week. North play the Dogs this week who traditionally struggle in the ruck department.

Steeeve

Also traditionally hold opposition ruckmen to low scores…

Tommo09

Who to trade Gawn to? Thinking Nank at the moment. Maybe Witts?

Kyle

Nank looks like the best choice atm mate. Still cheap and looks a forward keeper

JibJib

Grundy or Nank

Youngy

Nank

Tristan

What do people think about Ryan Burton (hawks rookie)? 104 and 80 in first two games…

Craig

I really like him, had him in and out of my team before 1st lock out, it just came down to his price, if he keeps this average and spot in the team I would say he would have to be a good buy.

JibJib

What would you be getting him for? I'm assuming it's as a cash cow. If so there are much better options this week (cheaper, better scores, lower BE).

Leeds17

Cheaper yes… Better scorers not so sure, up forward or back.

Jib_Jib

You're right, he's scored slightly better than the likes of Newman and Otten, and much better than the rest of the lambs. Newman, Otten, Hayward, Houston and Butler are all cheaper and better cash cow options though. DPP is Burton's only advantage.

However If he maintains his average for the season he'll be a very handy F6/D6.

Derek

if he was $40k cheaper i would consider him.

FWD/DEF SPP are very nice to have, especially if Long was to get named this week

Randomcliche2

Actually, I'm regretting buying Marchy over him last week….is that too strong? He looks really good with the ball in hand. Good mark. He was a little sloppy defensively a few times being a bit far off his man. But, that doesn't really hurt your supercoach scoring….as far as I know #bontsballoon….

PS Long might be a good bullet if you had Burton regardless of being named….loophole until named.

SF4

Not impressed with Goldstein. I started with a ruck duo of Grundy and Goldy thinking that it was going to be a set and forget duo until seasons end. With preuss in the side and Goldy always having some sort of niggle I've decided that I'm going to go
GOLDY> NANK.
Is it worth it, over the last couple of weeks I've been harping on to not trade premos but I feel as though goldy is an exception and that trading him for nank is fair enough.
Thoughts?, Thanks everyone.

INPieman

Pruess is taking far more ruck time than Goldy. Best to get rid of him now before his price crashes

Rivo

So many stains this weekend, 2107 and only won in one league.

Who goes first? Right now, it's 2 of these…

1. Gawn
2. Hibberd
3. O'Mera
4. Taranto.

I can swing Nank into R1 with Sandi at R2, though no ruck cover with Stnadica at R3. I have Swallow at M7 & rookie cover ok for now…

Options:

1. Gawn & Hibberd to Grundy & Newman
2. Gawn & Hibberd to Murphy & Newman
3. Gawn & O'Mera to D.Martin & McGrath
4. Gawn & Taranto to D.Martin & Newman

Community feedback appreciated as always…

TBone

1 id say. Grundy is going to be top 3 ruckman and newman on the bubble. No brainer

Dildor

I feel ya, serious brain buster

JibJib

4. Martin will out score Grundy andNewman is a must have. If you get another injury in the rucks cross that bridge when you get to it.

LoganJosh7

1 or 4. ruck looks weak if you dont get a proper cover. and D.Martin will easily outscore Murph this year.

LJB

Gawn and hibberd definitely! o'mera is still playing as well as Taranto unless he's dropped this week, Newman is a must and if you don't get him this week then you've missed the boat and holding Gawn and missing a premiums points for a round isn't worth it just depends if you want grundy/nank/Martin

Rivo

Can't quiet afford Dusty & Newman with Hibberd & Gawn. However, could get there with Stewart & Gawn. Wasted trade out re Stewart? Or is it better to stick with Option 1, which leaves me around $80k.

Jake.B

I did exactly what you have for option 1.

Rivo

Thanks Jake. Agree, Option 1 is the go. Ruck cover important this time of the season, so S.Martin & Newman come in this week.

TBone

Happy I grabbed the Nank last week, even if it ment dropping roughy. Team is currently looking like

Shaw, Laird, Rance, Marchbank, Hampton, Newman (T. Stewart, Hibberd)

Danger, JPK, Treloar, Fyfe, Wines, Beams, JOM, SPP (Barrett, Parfitt, Florent)

Grundy, Sandi (Strnadica)

Dahl, Macrae, Nankervis, Petracca, Bowes, Butler (Eddy, Pickett)

1 trade remaining this week. Any thoughts or ideas lads?

Dildor

Jom to swallow?

TBone

yeah was thinking that. Looking to get rid of bowes, but guess i gotta wait till forward rookie presents itself on the bubble

LoganJosh7

wait for selection – i doubt all of bowes, eddy and pickett will get picked if any

TBone

Yeah, thats where I would love to make more than 2 trades this week. Next week Ill need to find rookies to trade down to from bowes, pickett and co… high scoring rookies where you at!?

LoganJosh7

freo have some guns – didnt score that well but i think they will iimprove each game

TBone

Heres to hoping haha. Hows your squad looking ahead of this round mate?

Northernsoul74

Not much talk about Hayward. Newman is a given this week but there aren't that many forward rookies on the horizon so would have thought more would considering Hayward.

INPieman

Think most people have and issues to deal with like Gawn/Goldy & then Newman front & centre for trade 2. But for what it's worth I think Hayward is good

SCaddict

If you were keen for a forward rookie this week then that's who you would be targeting obviously. Most coaches have ruck and defence issues to deal with right now so the thought of jumping on Hayward is way way WAY down the priority list.

Swallow, Murphy and NRoo are also beckoning the attention of other coaches before they sky rocket in price so Hayward is just getting lost in the noise this week especially with his mediocre 50 on the weekend.

Beezneez

Hayward is good – B Long (St K) and H McKay (Carl) were named as emergencies last week and could be on the horizon. Like SCAddict and INPieman stated there are more pressing issues than rookie forwards. I have Butler at F6 and can swing Parfitt down there if required. McClugage, Balic, Parsons, Durdin, Dawson and T Smith are all forward rookie options.

Elijah

Hey Lads, looking to trade Taranto OUT to bring IN Fox or Hayward, what are your thoughts on that community?

Mike

No your wasting trades

TBone

Fair call. Fox will maximise cash but I think Hayward might be better option

SCaddict

I'd only do it if TT gets dropped this week and you have no other priorities. Hayward would likely be my pick of the two but there is plenty of guesswork involved. The Swans are no too far away from getting some experienced players back (Rohan, McVeigh, Papley, Heeney) so a couple of their youngsters will probably have to make way in the next 2-3 weeks. Who that will be I have no idea but buyer beware.

AuroraBorealis?!

Gotta love DPP magic, allowing me to trade Gawn to the Bont

SCaddict

Having the Bont in your side is certainly a nice feeling especially with all that sweet loving CD give him each week. God help the rest of us when he actually has a monster statistical game like Treloar ha ha.

AuroraBorealis?!

I had him in my side most of the pre-season only to switch him to T.Mitchell last second as i thought he'd be a bit underdone, so yes it is a nice feeling getting him back

Captain Risky

Bulldogs have got quite a few early games coming up too, So makes an excellent VC option.

Luke444

How did you wrangle that mate. Please explain

hedski

At a guess he has moved Nank to the ruck when Gawn being traded, then swung a mid/fwd to the fwd line and slotted Bont in the guts.

Derek

yep. I traded Gawn to Newman

hedski

I went Witt's, Have SandiWitts Preuss and Nank fwd, Hibbo Jr to Newman no brainer. $375k in warchest for next week, Taranto up to a premo looking good.

Randomcliche2

I'm thinking the same, except it will prolly be JOM up given TT never, not once in the preseason graced my sheet.

Jack

Bloody saint Roo. Had him traded him for JJK (10weeks early from my intentions) now I want Roo back. Is the straight trade back the wrong thing here?

Kyle

Waste of a trade. JJK will still finish top 6. If you really want roo back find another way

SCaddict

Just think that trade would be tempting the wrath of the fantasy gods. What happens if NRoo stuffs his dodgy knees in the 1st qtr this weekend and JJK kicks a bag at home against the struggling Swans.

Would you even be able to live with yourself having to trade him back to JJK again?!

Jack

With GWS being so dominate, reckon trading Heater and Pickett for roo and Newman

Neverweaken

JOM is out for any premo mid this week. Now which one. Hanners or wait another week. Is murph the real deal?
Or straight to Dusty or Pendles? Thinking about Cotchin as well.

TBone

If youre gonna go ultra premo id go martin or bont, pendles not bad either

John James

Yes JOM has to go,I'm tossing up between Dusty as a premo trade or Swallow as a stepping stone to a premo,who I can have on the field with a bit of confidence.

Micky_B

Who will score most this week out of hampton, spp and omeara?

Dice

O'Meara

BF23

You would expect it to be JOM to score the most followed by SPP and then Hampton, based on what we have seen so far.

Youngy

Don't no until the game finishes but you would hope Omeara

LoganJosh7

o'meara

hedski

Hampton.

Randomcliche2

I'm with Hedski on this one…Hampton named in center again, getting better each week. JOM looks like he needs a week off, but then so did many of team mates.

Beezneez

The one with the most points at the end of the round.

sharmanism

Thoughts on Dusty, Murphy or Bont in for Gawn (using DPP)?

I'm thinking Murphy as it will leave me with more cash in the kitty for future upgrades.

Will be moving Nank from my forward line into ruck leaving me with Nanklands ruck line.

Will be bringing Newman in too. Not sure whether that will be for Pickett, Tarranto or Hibberd (although not earning $$$ DPP is handy)

John James

Dusty or Bont for Gawn,they will be keepers and I'd trade out Hibberd for Newman at least the other two are still making a little cash.

Also Carlos

I went for Murphy in for O'Meara and Witts in for Gawn – both about cash generation at this stage of the season. Although bringing in Dusty for the clash against the terrible Lions outfit and slapping the Loophole on him for Danger's game on Monday also seems very tempting!

judd0

I've gone Dusty in, Gawn out via Nank and Pickett swing.
I like it, he's expensive but there's a reason for that.

Tyler

What do I do with kade Simpson didn't go under 84 last year and two scores under that ?

Steeeve

You hold him. Will be top 8 defender.

Youngy

Agree I have him and will be holding

Derek

do what everyone did when Hanners had two sub-par scores… dump him

Moustachio

You will donate him to me for cheap in a couple of rounds, I will swap you one Tuohy

Winter

What's Robbie Fox's job security like?
Need to downgrade Hibberd to him to be able to bring in Newman for Smith.
Doing this gets rid of my loophole options though providing Pickett isn't dropped…

BF23

The only 2 at the swans that have good JS would be Newman and Florent. Swans having a shocking start and will try and bring back the guns as soon as possible. Involving Heeney, Papley, McVeigh, Rampe and Tippett. I would expect for some of the youngsters to be dropped.

Ojas Patil

Gawn to Murphy? Using a combination of dpp's involving switching nank to ruck?

BF23

Instead of bringing in Murphy try and bring in a super premo such as Pendles, Bont, JPK or the likes. Murphy may begin to cop a tag and soon his scoring or body will fail the people who trade him in this early.

nicko pryse

i reckon you HOLD gawn buddy

hedski

???? 3 months.

jez_m

Forget holding Gawn, that's just silly.

whatyasmokin

Forget Murphy.

judd0

I've brought in Dusty using the same thinking.
I don't think Murphy can keep this up, he is however still cheap. Depending on what your Mids already look like it may be a good idea.
I have to many fringe mid picks already: Fyfe, Oliver, Cripps, Treolar, O'meara (Not even fringe)
Needed to bring in a super premo.

TEM

martin or grundy for gawn?

Saundo

I'm going Grundy, only cause Martin screwed me last year !

redgumwon

Martin for me if Archie doesn't get picked

Boltons Blues

JOM gets the bullet this week, straight to Swallow and then Smith from Melbourne to Newman, leaves that stain Stewart on the bench, swing Taranto to the mid so i dont have to field another stain and that moves Butler to the field, who has done well but i think once Richmond falls off, he falls off, they should win their next 2 but its Richmond, so 9th is almost locked in already

Steeeve

Lesson learned, move on, long season yet.

Tyruddanaut

Is this the week to jump on Marc Murphy at all costs. A proven performer who by far trumps all the players on his team SC wise. As said the buy of the season, second top player off 3 games and only at 501k. Anyone who still has someone like touhy maybe lynch or other poor performers can get this raging gun for 200k less than he is scoring. Projected to go up 50k this week if he scores 120. After that he is gone to us and we have lost our chance. Will we regret not picking him up and "wasting our trades" from other premiums who should be keepers. But even the ad says for SC, loyalty is for losers. Murphy is garunteed to be in lots of the top teams this year for what he gives. I say we should get him in. One trade now, possibly two, could get us a ton of points in the long run. If we don't will we regret it?? I think so!

Captain Risky

History says it won't last….

Mog

I'm hearing you. Had the finger on the trade button last week but was talked out of it by the community. Ended up bringing in WHE and Marchbank instead. This also required me holding onto JOM and off loading Roughie. Not by best trading week based on this weeks scores. I would need to burn two trades and all cash on hand to bring in MM this week in addition to must have Newman. Will certainly consider but many still feel MM is not the keeper he currently looks to be. At this stage I will probably let him go like I did Rockcliff last year when he was a risky bargain. Hoping for a different result this year.

LoganJosh7

Man crush alert

Derek

i think you should have got him last week

Tyruddanaut

Last week got in Oliver and Nank… I think he is still good for 501

Luke444

I reckon your mad. I wouldn't be surprised if he starts getting tagged again. He struggles with a tag and will start pumping out 90''s again

whatyasmokin

Stopped reading at 'As said the buy of the season'

It's been 3 rounds.

Daizy

Stop chasing last weeks points.
Ship has sailed

Jimmy

I actually completely agree with you. Even if he let's say quietens off and scores 90 this week and 90 the following week, he will be at 600k and you could straight swap him for proven premium. If however he still keeps pumping massive scores then you are laughing. I'm bringing him in.

Jimmy

Getting rid of Roughy and O'meara for Murphy and Butler!! Sure they've gone up already but still good value. Roughy is a bit stiff but sometimes in war there are innocent casualties

whatyasmokin

I think you've missed Butler and Roughy just got a 100.

Get ready to receive the wrath of the supercoach gods.

Jimmy

I don't feel like I have missed the boat on Butler as he has gone up but he is a fwd rookie averaging 80. All these other guys are averaging 40. It was the only way I could free up money to get rid of O'Meara for someone decent. I usually wouldn't do a trade like this but cannot stand that one legged pretty boy

Danners

Missed the boat on Butler, your not alone on that one. Save the $90k and get a rookie on the bubble. With Murphy, you've missed the boat as well

Jimmy

Not sure how I've missed the boat on Murph. Sure he has already gone up but at that price he is still cheap.

Youngy

So many PRIORITIES……. only 2 Trades…..

INPieman

Can relate to that

Top Gun

Not happy with Neale averaging under 100 for plenty of coin. I know a sideways trade is a waste of a trade but am salivating to bring Dusty in. Thoughts community?

Steeeve

Chasing the car. It's a nice car. But the car you already have is nice too.

Top Gun

But a ferrari is much better than a Ford. Lol.

Moustachio

If Dusty isn't a Holden Commodore, I don't know who is.

Blaknight

He's a Datsun 180B

LoganJosh7

if not injured dont do it

BloodyFranklin

Gawn out for 3 months?

Paulie8414

Newman for marchbank or Stewart?

Touk tuk

Stewart

BF23

Stewart

Michael

I'm going Gawn to nank should I either go

Omeara/Taranto out for Newman or jake Lloyd
I have 2-0-6 defence so I think I need to strengthen it..
If I am to get Lloyd in who should I get rid of I have Taranto in the forward line or omearA

BF23

Have Goldstein and he is being moved on.
GOLDSTEIN>WITTS
PICKETT>NANK
In doing this I will be left with 27 trades and 47k in the bank with Witts as my R2 and Grundy as my R1.

How does this sound? Thanks.

BzBman8

Sounds solid to me mate.

Ja191

is Marchbank for Otten on field a good idea?

Touk tuk

No

Touk tuk

JOM out Swallow in

Stewart out Newman in

Thoughts community?

Micky_B

Im thinking very similar

Youngy

Solid trades.

I would consider holding Omeara

Swallows bye is a concern

FEARTHEBEARD

Gawn – Preuss
Smith – Newman

Witts was on bench so comes into R2.

Preuss on bench making some cash and cover…

405K in the bank. JOM gone next week for Bont/Dusty

INPieman

Doing the same thing but with Goldy. The bank is awesome & Pruess looks like a good cow now

red5

me too

Youngy

They will probably be my trades as well.

But I am concerned with the 400k in bank

whatyasmokin

You can keep Gawn if you are concerned with having cash.

Krups

Tuhoy to Adams
Omera to Otten via dpp

Micky_B

I like it

Millsy

Solid. Adams and Otten looking like 2 must haves in the back line, one as a keeper and one for cash gen.

JyeDie

Going Smith to Newman as a no brainer
and then can either go:
Gawn to Grundy
Omeara to Swallow and wait a week on trading Gawn with cover through Nank.
Don't know as want to get rid of Omeara as I haven't been liking his game whereas Swallow seems to be blasting.
Which one does anyone think?

Micky_B

Id hold omeara for 1 more week because his breakeven is 58 and he should go up in price and stay above swallow for another week. Then u can decide based on one more game. Not sure about gawn as i dont have him but if u have nank and a sandi or witts then use some dpp to get a premo elsewhere.

Daniel

Not sure I agree – if he does the O'Meara -> Swallow next week, it'll cost him an extra 40-50k.
JOM projected to go up 3k, Swallow projected to go up 45k.

Top Gun

Gawn out for 3 mths not worth covering.

INPieman

That's got to hurt

Redd

The site of TTs name on my team sheet makes me furious what a flog problem is ive also got paddy ryder probs gone for 2 no ruck cover with strndica loop hole on the bench and JOM the super spud in the middle with mr potato head himself Matt Crouch and Tom cant get a kick Stewart down back absolutely wrecked my start to the year gonna take some serious work to get out of this hole. Ive got eddy and pickett on the bench up front Parfitt Barett and Mountford in the mid and hibberd n hampton on the bench down back obviously sub hampton for stewart as i cant let him take the field again but guys i need some advice please. Downgrade Ryder to Witts but then not sure what my next move should be.

Mystic Mac

Grab a bible and pray to the gods Redd

INPieman

Post your team & cash in bank, see what the community can come up with

MRP

Oh and Ryder slapped with a one match ban, ooohhh significant folks, im flopping the plums out and going CHOP, with the round 9 bye he'll be only playing 4 out of the next 6 weeks, on ya bike mate.

dwhits

I'll be doing the same thing mate, has annoyed me ever since I picked him. Who you bringing in for him?

Top Gun

Surprised Paddy Ryder only got one week for his hit on Riley Knight. Anyone else think he would get 2 or 3 weeks?

INPieman

I thought he'd get 2 minimum

Millsy

Just watched it, very surprised considering Lewis and Hogan got 3 and 2 weeks respectively. MRP can chow down on my bag of Nobbys.

LIAM

Trade luke PARKER for the Bont, Sloane or Rockliff??

hedski

Hold.

Top Gun

Hold. He will come good when Swans get back some players soon.

Saundo

The Bont foresure

Youngy

Hold.

FCAbel

Bont in answer to your question. I have Parker and will hold. Champion. Just about to turn around form.

Liam

He's price is going down though then won't be able to afford the others

hedski

Get them later when your rookies generate cash, can't have them all straight up.

Danners

I have him as well, but HOLD. They haven't won a game yet which doesn't help

DavidSA

Plowman a worthy D8 357k @ 95 avg playing parts through the middle looking good to me
What everyone else reckon?

Top Gun

Will he make enough $$$ prior to the byes? Awkward price for SC.

INPieman

Bit expensive for a D8 I would have thought

DavidSA

Crap was thinking of midfielders when I wrote that I meant D6 sorry fella's

INPieman

Ballsy. I did like the look of him. Not something I'd entertain

FCAbel

He looks good. We should have picked him up last week. Maybe to pricey now.

Danners

Been known as a lockdown defender from my beliefs over the years. $350k is a bit too much

Trader

Anyone know what Stewarts JS is like?

Cheers

bob the builder

should still be solid they don't really have any big names to come back in

Carl from Coldstream

Will depend on how long they persist with Harry Talyor up forward. Kick a bag H!

mark

Hey guys which option is the best? Also holding goldy is not an option he is cooked
1. Goldy to stef martin
2. Goldy to nick riewolt switching nank into ruck
3. Goldy to bont via ddp (this will leave me with WHE butler and housten on field and spp on the bench)

Trader

I like #2

Millsy

I'd go #2. As much as Bont is looking like a must have, WHE Butler and Houston is very thin in the FWD line. I traded Riewoldt after his injury, now wishing I'd held on!

mark

Thanks fellas i agree

DavidSA

Plowman a worthy D6 357k @ 95 avg playing parts through the middle looking good to me
What everyone else reckon?

If he can avg 91-96 for rest of season I would think that is worthy of D6
Re-posted cause I said D8 sry

bob the builder

He won't average 91-96, enough said

DavidSA

Fair call ty mate

Rick Grimes

Think I'll move TT Boy to Swallow. Plus Newman for Spud Stewart.
