Supercoach Rd 11 : Rookie Scout Report

Published by Barron Von Crow on



Well, that time is upon us, the dreaded bye rounds are here *insert dramatic music here*.

Howdy folks, I’m Barron Von Crow and welcome to the Supercoach Scouting Report. Yes, it’s that time where all your careful planning is thrown out the window when some coach (thankfully Ross Lyon doesn’t have any rookies he can drop to screw with us), drops some bloke you expected to be playing and you suddenly start having to make trades just to field a full side. Chaos will reign everywhere, human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria! You guys know the drill.

Anyway, hopefully we can provide you with a bit of guidance through these rounds and help steer you towards a path where dogs and cats aren’t living together and the only hysteria is the cheers you scream when your team scores well. Now onto the scout report!


Geelong VS Port Adelaide

Jordan Cunico

FWD | SC Price: $123,900

Round 10 Stats: 12 disposals, 3 marks, 49 SCPoints, 42 CKPoints

Tom Stewart

DEF| SC Price: $274,400

Round 10 Stats: 19 disposals, 4 marks, 4 tackles, 91 SCPoints, 74 CKPoints

James Parsons

FWD | SC Price: $182,500

Round 10 Stats: 9 disposals, 1 goal, 1 tackle, 42 SCPoints, 27 CKPoints

Sam Powell-Pepper

MID | SC Price: $312,600

Round 10 Stats: 15 disposals, 1 mark, 4 tackles, 55 SCPoints, 54 CKPoints


Tom Stewart was probably on most people’s benches this week, but pump out a career high 91 SCPoints against the Power. It’s probably a bit much to expect that this week, though I imagine he’ll be heavily started with the bye rounds in full effect this week. Same goes for James Parsons unfortunately, who again put up another middling performance. You take what you can get sometimes though.

Sam Powell-Pepper has a BE of 59, which is just below his season average of 66, but he does have the advantage of playing through all the bye rounds.

Sydney VS Hawthorn

Nic Newman

DEF | SC Price: $416,000

Round 10 Stats: 18 disposals, 4 marks, 4 tackles, 72 SCPoints, 78 CKPoints

Lewis Melican

DEF | SC Price: $209,100

Round 10 Stats: 13 disposals, 2 marks, 1 tackle, 55 SCPoints, 43 CKPoints

Will Hayward

FWD | SC Price: $224,200

Round 10 Stats: 9 disposals, 3 marks, 28 SCPoints, 40 CKPoints

Oliver Florent

MID/FWD | SC Price: $202,800

Round 10 Stats: 7 disposals, 4 tackles, 1 goal, 47 SCPoints, 36 CKPoints

Ryan Burton

DEF/FWD | SC Price: $420,800

Round 10 Stats: 20 disposals, 9 marks, 57 SCPoints, 77 CKPoints

Blake Hardwick

FWD | SC Price: $260,700

Round 10 Stats: 15 disposals, 8 marks, 65 SCPoints, 64 CKPoints

James Cousins

MID | SC Price: $102,400  

Round 10 Stats: 14 disposals, 4 marks, 1 goal, 67 SCPoints, 66 CKPoints


Sydney will be on the bye this week, but we saw another solid performance from Nic Newman, but his rapid rise has finally caught up to him, with his BE sitting at 80. I wouldn’t be massively concerned about that for the next few weeks, he should be a solid guy to have through the bye rounds after this week and can probably be put as the last guy you can worry about upgrading.

Ryan Burton on the other hand does look likely to lose some cash this week with a BE of 116. The Hawks do have the Round 13 bye, so if you don’t mind him potentially losing a bit of cash, keep him for the next fortnight and then look to move him on when the bye hits.

James Cousins could also be worth a look when he’s on the bubble, but you’ll only get Round 12 out of him with the Round 13 bye. That can still fit into your bye rounds, especially if you do an upgrade of someone who has a Round 13 bye like Andy Otten, Andrew McGrath or Tim Taranto.

Western Bulldogs VS St Kilda

Timothy English

RUC | SC Price: $130,800

Round 10 Stats: 7 disposals, 1 mark, 3 tackles, 3 hitouts, 37 SCPoints, 33 CKPoints


Tim English played his first AFL game and didn’t exactly set the world on fire, but that’s to be expected. His job security probably isn’t massively high, so I don’t think there will be a ton of value here.

Melbourne VS Gold Coast

Mitch Hannan

FWD | SC Price: $248,200

Round 10 Stats: 18 disposals, 4 marks, 3 goals, 88 SCPoints, 82 CKPoints

Will Brodie

MID | SC Price: $175,800

Round 10 Stats: 9 disposals, 1 mark, 5 tackles, 32 SCPoints, 42 CKPoints

Jarrod Witts

RUC | SC Price: $457,000

Round 10 Stats: 13 disposals, 3 marks, 51 hitouts, 98 SCPoints, 97 CKPoints

Brad Scheer

MID | SC Price: $138,300

Round 10 Stats: 10 disposals, 3 marks, 3 tackles, 44 SCPoints, 47 CKPoints


Mitch Hannan has worked his way back into some players good books, with scores of 85 and 88 over his past two games. That’s pushed his break even all the way into negative territory again, though you won’t get to see him this week with Melbourne having a bye. Hopefully he makes some cash in Round 12 and 13 and you can move him out there. Will Brodie played his first AFL game, but didn’t rack up the possessions. His advantage is he won’t have a week off due to byes, but you’ll also lessen your potential cash gain since he costs $175K to buy.

Adelaide VS Fremantle

Andy Otten

DEF | SC Price: $372,200

Round 10 Stats: 17 disposals, 8 marks, 4 goals, 121 SCPoints, 107 CKPoints

Jake Kelly

DEF | SC Price: $304,400

Round 10 Stats: 17 disposals, 3 marks, 8 tackles, 73 SCPoints, 85 CKPoints

Hugh Greenwood

MID/FWD | SC Price: $117,300

Round 10 Stats: 11 disposals, 1 mark, 6 tackles, 72 SCPoints, 55 CKPoints

Cam McCarthy

FWD | SC Price: $326,800

Round 10 Stats: 10 disposals, 1 mark, 1 goal, 43 SCPoints, 41 CKPoints


Andy Otten did some good work in the wet, particularly in front of goal, and that big score works perfectly for us, especially with Adelaide having a Round 13 bye. He’ll have that score of 121 SCPoints for two more weeks in his rolling average, which gives him time to pump up his price tag a bit more and make him a nice fat cash cow we can send to market in his bye week. Hugh Greenwood is on the bubble this week and will be a popular trade in. He only saw the pill 11 times, but his contested work and tackling still saw him put up a decent score. Looks like one who hits a lot of those Supercoach friendly targets, but he will have a real test on Friday against Geelong.

Richmond VS Essendon

Shai Bolton

MID/FWD | SC Price: $117,300

Round 10 Stats: 8 disposals, 1 mark, 5 tackles, 43 SCPoints, 42 CKPoints

Andrew McGrath

DEF/MID | SC Price: $369,700

Round 10 Stats: 26 disposals, 4 marks, 2 tackles, 101 SCPoints, 85 CKPoints

David Myers

MID | SC Price: $199,500

Round 10 Stats: 15 disposals, 1 mark, 4 tackles, 45 SCPoints, 53 CKPoints

James Stewart

FWD | SC Price: $210,900

Round 10 Stats: 14 disposals, 2 marks, 1 goal, 50 SCPoints, 56 CKPoints


Andrew McGrath looked to hit the same targets as Andy Otten did above. With the Round 13 bye and a big triple digit score this week, he has a chance to still earn some more cash over the next fortnight and then be sent off for a premium upgrade when his week off comes.

Shai Bolton is on the bubble this week, but still hasn’t cracked double digits in disposals. That may severely limit his Supercoach potential and he could still lose his spot if Dan Butler returns. There’s cash to be made from a downgrade, but you’ll also likely have to field him this week and in Round 13 too.

Collingwood VS Brisbane

Matthew Scharenberg

DEF | SC Price: $164,000

Round 10 Stats: 16 disposals, 7 marks, 65 SCPoints, 67 CKPoints

Will Hoskin-Elliot

FWD | SC Price: $374,700

Round 10 Stats: 17 disposals, 4 marks, 3 tackles, 64 SCPoints, 66 CKPoints

Tim Broomhead

FWD | SC Price: $284,400

Round 10 Stats: 17 disposals, 3 marks, 1 goal, 3 tackles, 60 SCPoints, 74 CKPoints

Hugh McCluggage

MID/FWD | SC Price: $231,200

Round 10 Stats: 19 disposals, 5 marks, 56 SCPoints, 66 CKPoints

Jake Barrett

MID | SC Price: $297,800

Round 10 Stats: 18 disposals, 3 marks, 7 tackles, 1 goal, 77 SCPoints, 87 CKPoints

Matthew Hammelmann

DEF | SC Price: $221,900

Round 10 Stats: 8 disposals, 1 mark, 1 goal, 33 SCPoints, 33 CKPoints

Jarrod Berry

DEF/MID| SC Price: $269,500

Round 10 Stats: 6 disposals, 1 mark, 1 goal, 5 tackles, 48 SCPoints, 43 CKPoints


Matt Scharenberg finally earned his AFL recall after putting up oodles of stats in the VFL and he managed OK. We’ve still got another week to look at him before he is on the bubble, so I would definitely wait, especially since he costs slightly more than the average bear.

Will Hoskin-Elliot has a BE of 85, which might mean he loses a bit more cash from here, but he could be a decent option to keep since he has a Round 13 bye. You may need to crunch some numbers from here to see if you’ll still need him to field a full side or not before deciding to move him on this week.

Jake Barrett has a low BE, but Brisbane have the week off this round, but he and Jarrod Berry should be good enough to keep through the rest of the bye rounds.

West Coast VS GWS

Malcolm Karpany

MID/FWD | SC Price: $185,000

Round 10 Stats: 11 disposals, 2 marks, 3 tackles, 1 goal, 49 SCPoints, 54 CKPoints

Nathan Vardy

RUC | SC Price: $302,100

Round 10 Stats: 6 disposals, 2 goals, 5 tackles, 32 hitouts, 78 SCPoints, 81 CKPoints

Tim Taranto

MID/FWD | SC Price: $355,700

Round 10 Stats: 18 disposals, 2 marks, 4 tackles, 1 goal, 72 SCPoints, 72 CKPoints

Tim Mohr

DEF | SC Price: $171,400

Round 10 Stats: 9 disposals, 4 marks, 50 SCPoints, 41 CKPoints

Daniel Lloyd

MID | SC Price: $155,200

Round 10 Stats: 12 disposals, 4 marks, 1 goal, 53 SCPoints, 59 CKPoints

Harry Perryman

DEF/MID | SC Price: $153,300

Round 10 Stats: 10 disposals, 1 mark, 32 SCPoints, 25 CKPoints


Tim Taranto can go into the Round 13 bucket with Andy Otten and Andrew McGrath after another solid game. His 5 round average is now sitting at 77 SCPoints, which is very good for a rookie player. Harry Perryman is on the bubble this week, but hasn’t looked like he’d be worth a trade in yet, while Tim Mohr played his first AFL game since Round 9 of 2016, but he’s had plenty of injury issues, missing about 35 games over the previous 3 years due to injuries. Not sure if his scoring potential is worth the risk, but it may be a case of there’s no other options available.

Carlton VS North Melbourne

Caleb Marchbank

DEF | SC Price: $364,400

Round 10 Stats: 14 disposals, 9 marks, 5 tackles, 70 SCPoints, 87 CKPoints

Harrison Macreadie

DEF | SC Price: $171,400

Round 10 Stats: 10 disposals, 3 marks, 38 SCPoints, 32 CKPoints

Zac Fisher

MID | SC Price: $200,000

Round 10 Stats: 9 disposals, 4 tackles, 35 SCPoints, 40 CKPoints

Tom Williamson

DEF| SC Price: $252,100

Round 10 Stats: 8 disposals, 2 marks, 6 tackles, 40 SCPoints, 54 CKPoints

Sam Petrevski-Seton

MID | SC Price: $347,700

Round 10 Stats: 7 disposals, 1 mark, 5 tackles, 26 SCPoints, 43 CKPoints

Kayne Turner

FWD | SC Price: $345,800

Round 10 Stats: 12 disposals, 5 marks, 2 goals, 5 tackles, 80 SCPoints, 77 CKPoints

Ed Vickers-Willis

DEF | SC Price: $257,500

Round 10 Stats: 8 disposals, 2 marks, 5 tackles, 50 SCPoints, 47 CKPoints


Carlton have the bye this week, although Caleb Marchbank may be on the chopping block with a breakeven of 83. He has hit that score before, but he might be worth an upgrade next week for someone who is also missing this week like Michael Hibberd or Dylan Roberton. The same applies to Sam Petrevski-Seton who has a massive BE and could start bleeding massive amounts of cash soon if his poor scores continue.

Kayne Turner continues to quietly be one of the best picks you could have made to start your year, his 5 round average now stands at 77 SCPoints and his BE is 36. Play him this week and maybe think about upgrading him when North have the bye in Round 12.

Great stuff Barron! Always appreciate the time you put into this

Chances of Eddy getting a game any time soon?

Also had Hibberd from NM sitting on the bench since the start. Useful loopholer but with the byes should he be moved on? Has been carving it up in the 2's but doesn't seem to be able to break back in.


Be tough to drop one of Dixon or Westhoff. Trengove back up ruck. Can't see where he fits, Richo. Needs an injury to force his way in


Thanks Kev, time to go then


211 disposals from Keiran Collins (Bulldogs). Thats gotta be a record!


Nah, quiet one by his standards.


Only 1 mark. He must be sore from bending down 210 times to grab the pill


A bit of back and forth handballing. Easiest way to rack up the possies

Papa Smurf

and only one mark not a contested beast, needs to have a long hard look at himself and get the hard ball


SPP and hibberd (nm) for greenwood and s Selwood or SPP and Barrett greenwood and Jelwood?


Option 2


Hold SPP for byes and just go Hibberd to Greenwood.


Brilliant BVC. Nice numbers from Darcy Cameron. Wonder if they kick Kurt Shittett to the curb for him. Also nice numbers from Brett Eddy but he's no doubt a depth option now


Backed up his 55 hitouts from last week. He'll get an opportunity at some point

Daniel Z

I've been saying (hoping) for that all year…


Love your work Barron!! Carn the Crows!

these next 2 weeks its time to paint paint paint the fence with the delicious prospect of cheap bont/mcrae/neale coming up!


Nice one BVC.
The brodie didn't really light it up like I expected put him into that hmmmmm territory.
Maybe first game nerves give him another week see how he goes.
Be gr8 if Eddy gets a gig this week of the byes. Not counting on it though. Just be nice. In two minds to trade him or keep. As not much on bubble this week what the hell what's another week with him sitting on the pine.


what is the general strategy going into the first bye round, Do you trade or keep your powder dry?

I have a few rookies ie fraser, Pickett, barrett not playing in R11 but with still low BE's and will make cash after the bye. Do I keep them for now? as they will be warm bodies after their bye. Any thoughts appreciated


I am keeping them because my round 13 is stuffed. It is situational


Yes same here DM, I think I only have about 12 on the field for R13


also hannan and newman so makes 5 rookies with this weeks bye

The Ranger

I think it depends on your cash situation Murray, ideally you'd be upgrading after Rd.11 to premos that have just had their bye and then doing the same after Rd.12 and Rd.13 so that come Rd.14 (if all is going to plan) you're at full premo.
If you've got a decent bank then you can afford to hold but if not then you might be forced to trade earlier than you'd like.


thanks Ranger, only 34k in bank but I really want to get Greenwood and S Selwood this week. I could trade out Newman or Roughead (haw) to get me the cash I need

The Ranger

Picket to Greenwood is a no brainer.
Not sold on Scooter, too injury prone for my liking.
You could go early on Newman and get a decent defender this week or bank the cash for upgrades next week.
Not many good rookie options this week so it's making these decisions tough.
Personally I'm holding Newman at D6 until my other lines are finished.


best strategy is to downgrade the fat rookies who have the round 11 bye, and then go wooshka the following week on premiums who had the round 11 bye.

this year there is the added option of getting Port or Suns players this week. But there isn't too much in the keeper basket i'm interested in from either team.

I was looking at doing two or even 3 downgrades (if preuss isn't named), but that would put $800k in my bank. I'm thinking maybe to go early on Sloane and Pendles as their BE is quite low. I've got plenty of cover for round 13.


Thanks Derek, enjoy your analysis. I could trade newman, picket and even sandi id he is not named. I need to get greenwood at a minimum but would seriously consider s Selwood. I am also considering wines as he has had bye and the only player averaging 103 at 469k. He will surely go up in value and is considered a premo now


I would hold onto Pickett. Non playing DPP players can be surprisingly handy to have in the run home. Plus he should play again.

Newman out is easy.

Greenwood in is easy

SSelwood will be a case of after the byes, you'll say, why do I have SSelwood?

Wines is a good pick. Will play next 3 games, big tick. Next game is against the Hawks, they give up a lot of contested ball. He is good value and might be the purchase you need to make to save cash for a premium elsewhere.


Derek, would you keep Haw Roughhead or trade


Have 19 trades at the moment, Balic to Greenwood is just about a certainty, is it worth going Pickett to Bolton on top?

I'm pretty cooked this week, think I only have 13 playing.


wait on selection


Probably worth doing the trade, seems Bolton's JS is higher than Pickett's at the moment


13 playing……how did that happen?


Probably didn't plan ahead for the bye rounds. In saying that i can only field 17 with JJK going down, Eddy, Lil Hibberd and Balic uncertain if they'll ever play again. Rd 12 and Rd 13 looking good for me though.


I'm mainly playing for league wins so was prepared to tank one of the bye rounds despite still going ok overall – haven't been helped by non-playing rookies as well, or the ones that have been worth holding/trading in (Berry, Barrett) have also got the Rd 11 bye.


fair enough. I'm bringing in Greenwood, Pendlebury and Sloane this week and that will put 22 on my field, including a rookie on my midfield bench. I have 23 for following week and 17 for round 13 but that will change before then.

Pickett and Preuss my only non-playing rookies.


Overall ranking will plummet dramatically after this round if you only have 13 onfield. You'll drop by 40K in ranking.


I feel it in my waters. This is the week that Uncle Ross finally unveils Luke Ryan into our supercoach pastures!


Would be perfect timing.

Give us a chance to watch him a couple of times before his bye and make sure Ross doesn't drop him before his price rise.


Surely not when he has to compete with Zac Dawson…..


i think Zac will be thrown straight into the midfield when he comes back


How did Karmicheal Hunt go?


I had to look this up to see what game he is playing. He must be going ok though, because he was just named in the Wallabies squad.


Not as good as israel folau i bet.

Great work again here Baron. Was at the MCG to see the Scharenberg debut. (As well as the Zorkfest.) He looks the goods if a little rusty and undecided at times. Expect him to rack up a few big scores as he gets better fed on the outside as they get used to him. 16 disposals and 8 marks would be a minimum base line from what I saw on Sunday.
PS. That pies mid rotation is amazing. Still junking it up but amazing to behold.

Di the pie

Thanks mate. That's helped my decision between McInnes and Berger plus it appears Kennedy will be back sooner rather than later which doesn't help Maccas JS.


Never a question mark on his talent, just needs a few miles on those legs of his


Todd banfield a good downgrade option??


Aren't you and your mate Josh getting bored yet ?


Just because were beating you, as your name implies your quite "russty" at supercoach




Thank you LoganJosh7 you are a cross between Lindsay thomas, josh green and josh bootsma, someone who is a waste of oxygen


Add "ass" to your name


Love the banter


Thank you davidSucksAss


I see what you did there, you used the S and the A from David SA's name and turned it into sucks ass….brilliant!


Hahah but are you beating me Jack?…cause I think you probably spend most of your time jacking off…to internet porn ..correct me if I'm wrong.


Hmmm russty_ you are probably a 30 year old drop kick with a ugs Gf AND spend all your time on supercoach as you have no job 😉


Don't waste your time David, they're probably 12 years old, you might make em cry 🙂

Top Gun

Balls will drop one day…


I broke my own rule hahah


Hmmmm Russty_ a 30 year old man who has no job and still lives at home with his parents using all of their Internet to play Supercoach and troll on jock reynolds but in fact a score of 1500 for you is about par….


If you had to chose out of Heeney and Greene who would you pick ?




i hate to say it…. but i think greene is a better option


Definatly the year of the young guns. By way of example …

Two weeks ago I traded in Priddis (as a well priced premo POD) and Shaw (as an absolute bargain).
They have bled a combined $100,000 in just 2 weeks.

This week I may trade in Petrie, Watson and Thompson and then apply to supercoach for some sort of "long in the tooth" subsidy to be added to my salary cap..


i stuck with the old guard this year and it has hurt.

i only have 6 out of the top 30 highest averaging players this year.


Next year Oliver, Kelly (especially if he goes to Kanga's), T.Mitchell and Danger the top 8 mids for next 3 years easy


I'm fairly set on Balic-Greenwood, Taranto to Greene but should I trade SPP to Scooter or Cousins? If I go with Cousins can do Berry to Hibberd next week.


Don't trade SPP unless it is to a port/god player




Which option please?

1) Sharanberg / S Selwood & Wallis (next week)


2) non playing defender rookie / pendles / greenwood


you have to get greenwood and pendles


Agree with Derek option 2 without a doubt.


Greenwood is a must! Look at his BE

Top Gun

Not convinced about Wallis yet. Only played a couple of games.

The Ranger

Can any Blues fans tell me what the JS of David Cunningham looks like?


Will Newman hit his BE of 80 Or trade him




No, trade.


Risky having Adams, Treloar and Pendles in the same side?


K. Collins had a few


Massive day. Gotta get a game

Top Gun

No not at all.


Bolton has the round 12 bye making him worth a look


No thats wrong, Brendan Bolton has the bye this round


I stand corrected. He indeed does lol


D.Lloyd or J.Cousins? Can't decide who to bring in.

neil Demons Delight

hawks have a future beast in cousins.Seen a few tapes and this kid can play similar to mitch..They do it every year


G'day community!

As always, a ripper podcast by Jock, Higgo, and Crouching one.

Rules are made to be broken.

I am not buying into this triple downgrade stuff this week. There is only ONE must have rookie this week. Hugh Greenwood.

Sorry Higgo, but I am not trading out Barrett or Berry this week. Their BE's are 12 and 36 respectively. Warm bodies, great job security, and more cash to be made after their rest this week. There is no real urgency on Cousins and Scharenberg. Not yet on the bubble. WATCH this week.

Bolton and Perryman are not must have rooks IMO. Bolton has the bye next week and Perryman has not shown enough to justify a trade.

As such, I am going ONE down and 1 UP this week.

Hugh Greenwood and Ollie Wines are coming into my side this week.

(Subject to no unexpected selections/omissions/late withdrawals)


Currently considering the exact same trades. The more I think about it, the more I reckon it's better to keep the powder dry on Cousins and Scharenberg. We've seen what happens when you go early on rooks!

Ferlatt Lining

Is anyone looking at SPP to Robbie Gray? Is there enough upside to use a transfer?


I was thinking of Ben Nason to Dustin Martin ?


Trade out Newman or shaw this week.. one stays a keeper!


Big G

will shai Bolton generate much cash?


Who did Scharenberg come in for? Will he stay gone? How likely is Sch to retain his spot?

I'm thinking to bring him in for Melican – I'll only make about 45k on the deal but am looking for a bench keeper that may score 70ish or so and basically cover my bases for ST injury. (Shame Melican didn't score higher last week, had a great game).


Thoughts on moving Steele this week?
I am considering the following:
Out: Steele and Pickett
In: Dusty and Greenwood
Full premo in midfield.
Leaves me with 18 players this round, 20 (Rnd 12) and 17 (Rnd 13) before making any other trades.


I would definitely do the Pickett to Greenwood trade. Don't know how much cash you would have left but seriously consider J.P Kennedy.


"Kieran Collins – Collins had 211 disposals, 1 mark and 2 tackles."

Boy oh boy wowee!!!!
