Supercoach RD10 : Rookie Scout Report

Published by Barron Von Crow on


Howdy folks and welcome to the Supercoach Scouting report for this week. I’m your host, Barron Von Crow and today we’ll be taking a wonderful journey through all things rookie related in Supercoach.  

We’re at a difficult time this week, with the BYE rounds starting next week decisions need to be made on several fronts. Do we upgrade? Do you look for bye round coverage? And do we downgrade to players knowing they may not 100% fit into our bye round strategies? All difficult questions to answer, but first we need to go look at how our players performed last week and what they’re looking like for Round 10.


Geelong VS Western Bulldogs

Mark O’Connor

DEF | SC Price: $102,400

Round 9 Stats: 12 disposals, 4 marks, 3 tackles, 35 SCPoints, 48 CKPoints

Tom Stewart

DEF| SC Price: $257,600

Round 9 Stats: 12 disposals, 4 marks, 4 tackles, 52 SCPoints, 57 CKPoints

James Parsons

FWD | SC Price: $170,500

Round 9 Stats: 14 disposals, 1 mark, 5 tackles, 47 SCPoints, 55 CKPoints

Not much on offer here, with both James Parsons and Tom Stewart looking like “in case of emergency” type players going forward. If you have the men, I’d likely keep both planted on the bench for now. Mark O’Connor is on the bubble this week, but hasn’t looked like one we’d be itching to add to our sides. Geelong have the Round 12 bye, so Parsons and Stewart might live on in a few more teams for another 2 weeks at least.

St Kilda VS Sydney

Nic Newman

DEF | SC Price: $372,900

Round 9 Stats: 30 disposals, 7 marks, 1 goal, 93 SCPoints, 113 CKPoints

Lewis Melican

DEF | SC Price: $207,300

Round 9 Stats: 9 disposals, 3 marks, 2 tackles, 40 SCPoints, 39 CKPoints


Will Hayward

FWD | SC Price: $225,300

Round 9 Stats: 14 disposals, 7 marks, 1 goal, 64 SCPoints, 71 CKPoints

It almost feels as if Nic Newman should have scored higher with a quick look at his stat sheet, but if we delve a bit deeper we can see he only had 7 contested possessions and 7 turnovers in there, which would probably explain his score being just shy of 100 SCPoints. Still, that’s a good effort for him and a great reward for anyone who held onto him after he was dropped. He may not be a season long keeper, but if he can keep pumping out these types of scores for the next 3-4 weeks he’ll rocket up in price very quickly. Sydney have the Round 11 bye, so Newman could be a very good source of points in Rounds 12 and 13.

Will Hayward produced his 2nd highest score of the year, but his 3 round average is at just 52 SCPoints. Hayward’s BE is 30, so he should be one who is good enough to survive through the bye rounds if you need him to.

GWS VS Richmond

Harry Perryman

DEF/MID | SC Price: $153,300

Round 9 Stats: 7 disposals, 3 marks, 7 tackles, 47 SCPoints, 52 CKPoints

Daniel Lloyd

MID | SC Price: $117,300

Round 9 Stats: 13 disposals, 2 marks, 47 SCPoints, 44 CKPoints

Tim Taranto

MID/FWD | SC Price: $340,100

Round 9 Stats: 19 disposals, 4 marks, 4 tackles, 1 goal, 81 SCPoints, 84 CKPoints

Shai Bolton

MID/FWD | SC Price: $117,300

Round 9 Stats: 9 disposals, 1 mark, 3 tackles, 67 SCPoints, 37 CKPoints

Ivan Soldo

RUC | SC Price: $123,900

Round 9 Stats: 5 disposals, 2 marks, 3 tackles, 6 hitouts, 32 SCPoints, 34 CKPoints

Tim Taranto continued his solid month, scoring 81 SCPoints, which puts his 4 round average at 78.7 SCPoints, while also pushing his BE down to 37. Fingers crossed he can keep the scoring up, with the bye rounds coming up, having a DPP player can be very helpful during that period.

Daniel Lloyd was OK, but his two scores have been 54 and 47, so there may be better options elsewhere, while Harry Perryman showed some good defensive work with the 7 tackles, he only had 7 disposals and 3 turnovers. We’ll probably want to see him at least double his disposal tally next week to consider bringing him in. GWS have the Round 13 bye, so Taranto should hopefully be good enough to survive the next 3 weeks and then maybe be a Round 13 upgrade to a premo pick.

Shai Bolton played his first AFL game of his career and didn’t score too badly, although it’s not every week that you’d score 67 SCPoints from just 9 disposals, but he may have been helped slightly by having 7 contested possessions and 5 score involvements.

Collingwood VS Hawthorn

Will Hoskin-Elliot

FWD | SC Price: $380,900

Round 9 Stats: 18 disposals, 3 marks, 6 tackles, 71 SCPoints, 83 CKPoints

Ryan Burton

DEF/FWD | SC Price: $427,700

Round 9 Stats: 16 disposals, 9 marks, 3 tackles, 74 SCPoints, 81 CKPoints

Blake Hardwick

FWD | SC Price: $261,400

Round 9 Stats: 16 disposals, 6 marks, 4 tackles, 55 SCPoints, 72 CKPoints

Will Hoskin-Elliot lost cash for the first time last week, losing $7,500, while his BE sits at 78, which is just above his 3 round average of 70. The Pies have the Round 13 bye though, so many might see him as an ideal guy to keep for a few more weeks yet and hope he loses a minimal amount of cash.

Ryan Burton had his 2nd lowest score of the year, but still has a quality 3 round average of 97 SCPoints. Like WHE, the Hawks also have the Round 13 bye, so Burton will serve his owners well through the first two weeks of the bye rounds. He’ll be one to re-evaluate for Round 13, if he can keep up around his current 3 round average then there may be little to gain from trading him.

Brisbane VS Adelaide

Matthew Hammelmann

DEF | SC Price: $221,900

Round 9 Stats: 8 disposals, 2 marks, 1 goal, 32 SCPoints, 36 CKPoints

Jarrod Berry

DEF/MID | SC Price: $248,000

Round 9 Stats: 16 disposals, 3 marks, 2 tackles, 75 SCPoints, 58 CKPoints

Jake Barrett

MID | SC Price: $268,800

Round 9 Stats: 13 disposals, 2 marks, 2 goals, 8 tackles, 87 SCPoints, 80 CKPoints

Hugh McCluggage

MID/FWD | SC Price: $216,000

Round 9 Stats: 15 disposals, 1 goal, 40 SCPoints, 40 CKPoints 

Jake Kelly

DEF | SC Price: $285,600

Round 9 Stats: 21 disposals, 4 marks, 3 tackles, 74 SCPoints, 74 CKPoints

Curtly Hampton

DEF | SC Price: $279,300

Round 9 Stats: 9 disposals, 2 marks, 4 tackles, 51 SCPoints, 46 CKPoints

Andy Otten

DEF | SC Price: $353,900

Round 9 Stats: 14 disposals, 1 mark, 2 goals, 72 SCPoints, 69 CKPoints

Hugh Greenwood

MID/FWD | SC Price: $117,300

Round 9 Stats: 15 disposals, 2 marks, 9 tackles, 3 goals, 104 SCPoints, 93 CKPoints

Jordan Gallucci

MID/FWD | SC Price: $148,800

Round 9 Stats: 11 disposals, 2 marks, 3 tackles, 1 goal, 57 SCPoints, 54 CKPoints

A lot to get through on this one, with Jarrod Berry continuing his solid play for the Lions, while Hugh McCluggage and Matthew Hammelmann probably did about as well as expected. Berry has moved his 3 round average up to almost 69 SCPoints, so he’s still scoring decently enough to keep in the D6 spot for now.

Andy Otten got close enough to his BE that it meant he only lost $6,500 on his price, but his BE is still at 80 for this week, which is still at probably the peak of around what he might score. Probably the same thing again for him, trade him if you have the option, but not a #1 priority if you have issues elsewhere. Curtly Hampton suffered an ankle injury, it’s not known yet as of writing if he’ll miss time, but we’ve likely rung every bit of value we can out of him by this point.

Both Hugh Greenwood and Jordan Gallucci made their AFL debuts, Greenwood with the big triple digit score and Gallucci was generally solid for his 57 SCPoints. Greenwood’s score isn’t sustainable, he won’t kick 3 goals (or play Brisbane!) every week, but at the very least if he can keep up his defensive efforts (9 tackles, 22 pressure acts) as well as his contested work (7 of his 15 possessions were contested) he should still be able to score in the 60-70 point range. We’ve still got 1 more week to take a look at both he and Gallucci to see how they do against a tougher Fremantle side though. That will be a real gauge of what they’re capable of going forward (if they play) you would think.

Essendon VS West Coast

Andrew McGrath

DEF/MID | SC Price: $364,400

Round 9 Stats: 21 disposals, 5 marks, 1 tackle, 59 SCPoints, 75 CKPoints

David Myers

MID | SC Price: $171,800

Round 9 Stats: 20 disposals, 8 marks, 2 tackles, 60 SCPoints, 83 CKPoints

James Stewart

FWD | SC Price: $169,800

Round 9 Stats: 9 disposals, 2 marks, 6 tackles, 1 goal, 51 SCPoints, 59 CKPoints

Fraser McInnes

DEF/FWD | SC Price: $155,100

Round 9 Stats: 14 disposals, 4 marks, 5 hitouts, 66 SCPoints, 53 CKPoints

Kurt Mutimer

MID | SC Price: $176,700

Round 9 Stats: 11 disposals, 3 marks, 3 tackles, 35 SCPoints, 52 CKPoints

Nathan Vardy

RUC | SC Price: $268,600

Round 9 Stats: 9 disposals, 6 marks, 2 goals, 22 hitouts, 88 SCPoints, 78 CKPoints

Andrew McGrath found plenty of the ball, but that probably didn’t translate to massive Supercoach success thanks to 18 of them being uncontested possessions. His issue is now that his BE sits at 89, which is well above his 3 round average of 71, while having a Round 13 bye, which could see him lose a bit of cash if you decide to keep him.

James Stewart had a bit of a down game, but that isn’t massively unusual, while David Myers had his highest score of the season, it still wasn’t anything to get massively excited about.

Fremantle VS Carlton

Cam McCarthy

FWD | SC Price: $340,100

Round 9 Stats: 8 disposals, 2 marks, 6 tackles, 1 goal, 61 SCPoints, 58 CKPoints

Caleb Marchbank

DEF | SC Price: $376,600

Round 9 Stats: 17 disposals, 6 marks, 3 tackles, 61 SCPoints, 66 CKPoints

Tom Williamson

DEF | SC Price: $255,900

Round 9 Stats: 17 disposals, 8 marks, 64 SCPoints, 73 CKPoints

David Cuningham

MID | SC Price: $238,300

Round 9 Stats: 13 disposals, 1 mark, 5 tackles, 66 SCPoints, 51 CKPoints

Zac Fisher

MID | SC Price: $188,300

Round 9 Stats: 13 disposals, 1 mark, 2 tackles, 1 goal, 63 SCPoints, 54 CKPoints

Sam Petrevski-Seton

MID | SC Price: $384,700

Round 9 Stats: 8 disposals, 3 marks, 10 tackles, 58 SCPoints, 67 CKPoints

Sam Petrevski-Seton faces a massive BE of 109 this week thanks to consecutive scores of 59 and 58 SCPoints. The Blues have the Round 11 bye, so some may hold onto him for 1 more week and look to upgrade him in Round 12, if he hits his season average of 72 SCPoints this week he’ll likely look to lose $15-$20K off of his current price, but you see that push up to $50K+ if his scores in the 50’s continue.

The same will likely apply to Caleb Marchbank, who has a BE of 97 and a 3 round average of 77. He may lose $10K or so off of his current price as long as he doesn’t completely bomb next week, so you can probably ride with him for 1 more week and then look to upgrade/downgrade him in Round 12.

Melbourne VS North Melbourne

Mitch Hannan

FWD | SC Price: $213,700

Round 9 Stats: 14 disposals, 5 marks, 3 goals, 85 SCPoints, 77 CKPoints

Sam Weideman

FWD | SC Price: $180,900

Round 9 Stats: 10 disposals, 5 marks, 34 SCPoints, 35 CKPoints

Ed Vickers-Willis

DEF | SC Price: $225,700

Round 9 Stats: 14 disposals, 6 tackles, 75 SCPoints, 58 CKPoints

Kayne Turner

FWD | SC Price: $324,200

Round 9 Stats: 20 disposals, 6 marks, 6 tackles, 87 SCPoints, 95 CKPoints

Mitch Hannan bought himself an extension, pumping out his first score above 55 SCPoints since he scored 96 in Round 1. That’s pushed his BE all the way down to 10 and should see him continue to make money through the bye rounds at least. Melbourne have the bye in Round 11, so he could be an OK bench option to keep for Round 12 and 13, which will also give him a chance to hopefully make a bit more cash as well.

Ed Vickers-Willis BE has been pushed down to -22 thanks to two decent scores of 79 and 75 SCPoints in the last fortnight. The Roos have the Round 12 bye, which may be a bit too soon to sell him off as he’ll still have some value, unless he totally bombs out in the next couple of weeks. The same applies to Kayne Turner who has been on a bit of a roll lately and now has a 3 round average of 81.7 SCPoints and a BE of 31.

Happy Gilmore theme.

Welcome back big boys we have missed you. Started with the top gun and his wingman putting on a clinic on Friday night and the cats going bat shite tackle happy. Over 230 in a match that is insane. Would have been some sore boys after that. It went on throughout the entire weekend some huge scores finding their way onto the scoresheet with new father pendles reminding us all he has a bit left in the tank and Titch getting leather poisoning getting the pill an amazing 50 times. It culminated on Sunday night with Walters enjoying his new role as a midfielder. Port and GC had a rest after the err game? they played in china. While we are on that what sort of display was that to the world of our great game? How to get you’re a$$ handed to you?

Ladies and gentlemen we have had our first draw in the happy place.
Rick Grimes and dontblushbaby were all tied up on Sunday night with a score of 2,264. This score appeared to be the average with some great team scores scattered throughout.

SCaddict suffered his first defeat to Mo who had to score a massive 2,305 to take the chockies but addict still remains ontop of the perch by percentage.

Top score was Swans2012 (my opponent) who scored a majestic 2,313. Treloar and Beams coming back in were great additions.

When the dust had settled the winners were:


Shake n Bake
Liam who defeated the father by 1 point!

League ranking now sits at 194.

Biggest drop in Price
Kurt “Glass” Tippett – $45.6k.

And the award goes to: (lowest scoring premo – starting price > $480k) and not injured during game
Jarrad Waite – 31 SC points

Jock has also set up a JR community Group where any team can join and compete against one another under groups:
Overall JR Group Leaders:
We have a new JR leader.
Well done David – Magpower leading all and sundry community group members with an overall rank of 35!
Hopefully one of this great community can be standing on the winner’s dais at the end of the year!

Good luck to all.



After 3 weeks of utter crap I finally started pulling my weight, 2,302, just in time to get kicked down again by the bye rounds…


What about JR leagues? Im in JR's 1%ers currently ranked 50 overall, most are pulling their weight well.


Im in that league daz, ranking nicely indeed.


You lucked out against me this week trig, beams and treloar coming back in plus the Heeney upgrade (not that he did anything!) was like a triple upgrade week for me. Swallow and witts back this week and my all star bench will be back where it should be, rookie rabble. love the report…good job!


Barron's brilliance.
Superb info yet again


Is it worth bringing in Yeo (fwd)?

His BE is around 150, but I desperately need a premo fwd.

Is he still a solid chance to be a top 5 fwd from here on?


Wingard is playing as a mid. Had his bye..


Wingard injured


Calf strain!

Just Sayin

As long as they play in WA should be fine


Who who you trade in for Hampton?



Mystic Mac

Hibberd imo


Howe then Hibberd


depending on your bye structure, they're all ok.imo.

Harbrow has had his bye
Hibberd is RD11
Howe is RD13


Harbrow every time. Easiest pick ever


Harbrow for me. He has a 7-8 ppg head start on the others if you factor in the byes


Howe then Hibbard then Harbrow.


Thanks guys for thoughts sticking with my decision on Harbrow


Good call. That bye free run really appeals.


Back your gut! I'm bringing in May.


Thanks again Barron. Another fantastic bit of research by you.


Pendles and Bolton, I feel a weight off my shoulders now I have daddy Pendles

Baggy Pants

Great write up as usual, what does Darcy Cameron have to do to get a game solid all year. Could end up being another swans ruckman that leaves for better opportunities.


Can't be far off, BP. Tippett must have a rehab table named after him at Sydney. Though he's welcome at the Tiges anytime. As is Preuss


The day Uncle Ross names Luke Ryan will be a day worthy of much celebration


The good bloke Ross is he'll name him in round 22+23 and stuff up his rookie price for next year


Freo have won 6 of the last 7. Only injuries will give Luke Ryan the opportunity to play this season. But keep slating Rossy, boys….


Had a look at him 2 weeks ago, looked almost ready, was huffing and puffing a bit at times but still looked good and followed up again this week, one more i think in the magoo's and he will be right to go.

Baggy Pants

We need to wait till Ross the Toss puts him in his supercoach team.


any chance of preuss getting a game anytime soon?/

Captain Risky

Probably, I traded him out last week…


Doubt it mate, I lost patience with him and punted him.


Any one think paddy rider can be a top 8 forward from here on ?


Big chance he'll be top 6, same as Nank.


haha love your name undy puncher, sounds like fun sailor 😉


Zac jones out 160 b/e, dpp berry to the backline and bring in dusty or j selwood just cant decide

Beady Eye

What are everyone's thoughts on NRoo?

I've been holding and hoping his scores would improve, especially with McCartin freeing him up to play on the wing more.

But the improvement hasn't come.

I have the cash to do a straight swap of NRoo and Parsons (with his underpant stain scores) to TMitch and Greenwood this week, and am having trouble talking myself out of it.


I'm in the same boat Japs.
Gotta hold him leading into the byes and reassess when he's back after a rest.
You know what he will do as soon as you trade him out!


Held this long just keep him he'll come good.


My Team:

DEF: Doc, Laird, Adams, Shaw, Newman, Hibberd. (Stewart, McNiece)
MID: Danger, Bont, Dusty, Hanners, Josh Kelly, Fyfe, Treloar, Beams. (SPP, Fisher Myers)
RUCk: Mumford, Sandi. (Strndica)
FWD: McRae, Dahl, Nank, Greene, Butler, Greenwood. (Parson, Black)

Starting to get a bit nervous about the Rd13 bye. I can see Scharenberg, Luke Ryan and Harrison Wigg pushing for a seniors call up and all are looking to be rookie 'must haves' and all with that Rd 13 bye.
If any get named this week they will go up in value Rd12 and will be less viable options after bye rounds.

Anyone else have similar concerns? Any obvious changes I should make to my team in preperation?


Same problem. Try and focus on bring no in non 13 players from now unless amazing cows. Should get through OK.

What do we think of McInnes as a downgrade option? job security doesn't look too promising


I'll take him if named this week. Decent ave, nice bye, dpp, and wins a few hitouts in the ruck.


Not sure why they missed him in the write up?


If named he's in my team.


Petrie will be named this week.
Even if he is named he could be dropped at any time.
Lycett is not far away either.


Is it worth going Greenwood to eddy if not named when Greenwood is on the bubble even tho it doesn't give me cash generation from the down grade not sure if eddy will be back soon as he did kick bags but had a down week only kicking 1. Or should it be Taranto downgraded to Greenwood? Only reason for getting rid of eddy to Greenwood is to have another warm body on bench during byes, but from that I don't get the 200k+ cash generation?


Taranto is in good form atm. I would heavily suggest against traded him


Looking at downgrading otten/marchbank for a def-mid option who has the best JS at the cheapest price


I'm looking to do the same Steve, but unfortunately not much about.

If you want someone that's going to play and score /appreciate there's Berry at 250k or perryman 150k (although not sold on JS).

If you're purely looking for the loop then take Hibbo Jnr (may play at some stage) or Junker – both have a lot of late games making them loop friendly.

I'm tossing up Berry v Junker.


Thanks Doc have berry will have a look at Junker


from left field, Scott Selwood.


Ivan Soldo also on the bubble, -21 b/e and for those looking to give Preuss the boot could be a good choice.


wouldn't be surprised if he gets dropped this week


Dawson the other good option. F


Did you watch him play on the weekend? I don't reckon he'll play for Richmond Seniors again this season, if at all.
Moves like a tortoise, and cannot play as a forward. Your classic Reserves Ruckman.


Does Daniel Lloyd have good JS?




Looks good.

Don't Blush Baby

Harbrow – is this his breakout year? looking at trading Marchbank to him? Thoughts ?


There is risk. He's never averaged anywhere near where he is averaging at the moment. Age 28/29? Not for me.


Planning on trading Stewart to Lloyd via ddp (berry) and then trading Marchbank up. Would love some recommendations on who to trade in. Current backline is Doch, Laird, Z Williams, Shaw, Marchbank, Newman (Stewart, Hibbo Jrn). I like the look and price of Hibberd but that bye is a problem for me, on the other hand Rance fits my bye structure perfect but price and output is less appealing, and conserving cash is going to be extremely important this season. Any other suggestions on players to trade in? Want to trade in Adams as my final defender down the line when his price drops so not him.

Also, I believe Lloyd has very good JS but would it be worth swapping in Greenwood instead? Been pretty busy the last few weeks and haven't kept up so i'm not too sure on his JS or his scoring history in the SANFL.

Thanks in advance for any feedback community.


Double Lloyd trade, although bad for your byes. Consider Lloyd and Rance.

Cpt Pugwash

BYES: What's Your Breakdown?

Without trades I currently have the following available on field per round:

Rnd 11 – (18)
Rnd 12 – (22)
Rnd 13 – (20)

21 Trades Remaining (Rank – 5500)
F-All In Bank


Are they all playing?

Daniel Z

I wouldn't think so.

Cpt Pugwash

They are all playing. Zero available players on the bench each week.


Thoughts on this trade

WHE down to McInnes
Hampton up to Adams
next week
Balic down to Greenwod


I know Stewart's price is high but I have a feeling his JS is better than McInnes'.

Lloyd GWS is another option in the midfield, or even go early on Greenwood if you think his JS is secure.


Hibberd or Lloyd or Rance or Roberton?


Like Rance and Lloyd for value.


Sandilands is out for a week. Those without cover might be forced to trade him out or cop the donut.


Ballic to Greenwood and
Hampton to Myers with 140K in the bank or Hampton to Scott Selwood??


Would moving Houston on for Greenwood be a bad idea I have to move The Nank into the ruck to avoid the Sandi donut I know Greenwood JS should be fine this week with a score 104 you would expect.
