Supercoach Rd 13 : Rookie Scout Report

Published by Barron Von Crow on


Howdy folks, I’m Barron Von Crow and welcome to this weeks Supercoach Scout Report. We’ve got one more week of these bye rounds to go, by which time we’ll all probably be looking to finalize our squad with premium players and start to hold on to our trades for the final 4 weeks of the year when Supercoach Finals start.

Last week was probably the easiest in terms of rookies and bye rounds, with Geelong, North, Richmond and West Coast having the week off, with none of those sides offering a heck of a lot on the rookie side of things. This week will be a bit more difficult with Adelaide, Collingwood, Essendon, Fremantle, Hawthorn and GWS with the week off, but I’m sure we’ll all manage to battle our way through it. So let’s go take a look at how our players went last week and maybe see what lies ahead for them in the future.

Sydney VS Western Bulldogs

Nic Newman

DEF | SC Price: $420,500

Round 12 Stats: 18 disposals, 7 marks, 3 tackles, 89 SCPoints, 84 CKPoints

Lewis Melican

DEF | SC Price: $228,500

Round 12 Stats: 14 disposals, 4 marks, 2 tackles, 71 SCPoints, 58 CKPoints

Will Hayward

FWD | SC Price: $230,300

Round 12 Stats: 11 disposals, 6 marks, 3 tackles, 53 SCPoints, 64 CKPoints

Tim English

RUC | SC Price: $130,800

Round 12 Stats: 7 disposals, 1 mark, 3 tackles, 8 hitouts, 33 SCPoints, 37 CKPoints


Nic Newman had another solid game, putting up enough points to have another minor price rise of $4,500. His season average is now sitting at 90 SCPoints, while his BE is 86, so he’s probably hit his peak price now. He’s still scoring decently however, so I wouldn’t put him as a #1 upgrade priority at this stage. Unless he’s literally the worst player on your team, in which case you’re probably having a very good year!

Tim English is on the bubble this week, with a BE of 7 already. There aren’t a lot of backup ruck options available at the moment, but his job security would be a major concern at this stage.

Adelaide VS St Kilda

Jake Kelly

DEF | SC Price: $308,900

Round 12 Stats: 18 disposals, 4 marks, 53 SCPoints, 55 CKPoints

Hugh Greenwood

MID/FWD | SC Price: $240,000

Round 12 Stats: 17 disposals, 1 mark, 3 tackles, 68 SCPoints, 49 CKPoints

Jonathon Beech

FWD | SC Price: $117,300

Round 12 Stats: 15 disposals, 4 marks, 4 tackles, 1 goal, 57 SCPoints, 72 CKPoints

Riley Knight

FWD | SC Price: $272,200

Round 12 Stats: 12 disposals, 3 marks, 3 tackles, 32 SCPoints, 45 CKPoints

Andy Otten

DEF | SC Price: $375,500

Round 12 Stats: 9 disposals, 4 marks, 1 goal, 62 SCPoints, 48 CKPoints


Adelaide are on their bye, which probably puts Andy Otten in our sights this week. His BE is a massive 122 and he also spent more time in defense against the Saints than in previous weeks. The return of Mitch McGovern (booted 4.2 in the SANFL on the weekend) puts a question on the job security of both Otten and Jonathon Beech. One obviously should come out for him, the question will be does Don Pyke want the key position versatility of Otten, or the running forward/midfielder options that Beech provide. Otten is a definite trade out target regardless, but the Crows having the bye this week may work in our favour when it comes to potentially trading in for Beech. Worst case scenario is probably Gov misses the Hawthorn clash in Round 14 and returns in Round 15, if Beech makes the cut then, his JS might be high enough to be worth a trade in, while also still being on the bubble.

Hawthorn VS Gold Coast

Ryan Burton

DEF | SC Price: $394,500

Round 12 Stats: 19 disposals, 1 mark, 4 tackles, 63 SCPoints, 62 CKPoints

James Cousins

MID | SC Price: $148,300

Round 12 Stats: 13 disposals, 1 mark, 1 tackle, 40 SCPoints, 38 CKPoints

Blake Hardwick

FWD | SC Price: $271,600

Round 12 Stats: 10 disposals, 4 marks, 7 tackles, 47 SCPoints, 68 CKPoints

Ben Ainsworth

MID/FWD | SC Price: $242,900

Round 12 Stats: 18 disposals, 2 marks, 4 tackles, 1 goal, 73 SCPoints, 73 CKPoints

Jarrod Witts

RUC | SC Price: $478,600

Round 12 Stats: 17 disposals, 5 marks, 4 tackles, 46 hitouts, 107 SCPoints, 115 CKPoints

Mackenzie Willis

DEF/MID | SC Price: $214,000

Round 12 Stats: 12 disposals, 4 marks, 3 tackles, 46 SCPoints, 52 CKPoints


Not a whole lot to unpack from this game. Mackenzie Willis played his first game for the year, but didn’t exactly set the world on fire (and certainly not for his price), while Jarrod Witts has been this year’s best value for money selection. James Cousins is still at a price that we could look at trading him in, although the Hawks do have the bye this week and his scoring potential doesn’t look massive.

Brisbane VS Fremantle

Jake Barrett

MID | SC Price: $336,400

Round 12 Stats: 24 disposals, 5 marks, 3 tackles, 2 goals, 97 SCPoints, 102 CKPoints

Hugh McCluggage

MID/FWD | SC Price: $242,100

Round 12 Stats: 16 disposals, 1 mark, 2 tackles, 1 goal, 64 SCPoints, 59 CKPoints

Jarrod Berry

DEF/MID | SC Price: $291,400

Round 12 Stats: 15 disposals, 4 marks, 5 tackles, 1 goal, 84 SCPoints, 73 CKPoints

Luke Ryan

DEF | SC Price: $117,300

Round 12 Stats: 13 disposals, 4 marks, 6 tackles, 87 SCPoints, 72 CKPoints

Cam McCarthy

FWD | SC Price: $279,300

Round 12 Stats: 5 disposals, 2 marks, 1 goal, 21 SCPoints, 32 CKPoints


It was a good week for Jake Barret, Jarrod Berry and Luke Ryan to show up! All 3 put up quality scores in a round where we were probably missing a few gun players. The good news about Ryan though, he scored 87 SCPoints, which is good, but he did it off just 13 disposals, which included 9 kicks, 7 contested possessions, 7 intercept possessions, 3 rebound 50’s and 0 turnovers, with 6 tackles and 4 one percenters in there too. The problem may be that sort of score isn’t sustainable from just 13 disposals a game (he had just 7 in his first game) and he goes back to scoring in the 50 range unless he plays a perfect game. Still, beggars can’t be choosers sometimes.

Essendon VS Port Adelaide

James Stewart

FWD | SC Price: $244,200

Round 12 Stats: 21 disposals, 6 marks, 2 goals, 105 SCPoints, 85 CKPoints

Andrew McGrath

DEF/MID | SC Price: $368,700

Round 12 Stats: 21 disposals, 6 marks, 1 tackle, 61 SCPoints, 73 CKPoints

David Myers

MID | SC Price: $217,200

Round 12 Stats: 14 disposals, 1 mark, 1 tackle, 41 SCPoints, 39 CKPoints

Sam Powell-Pepper

MID | SC Price: $330,700

Round 12 Stats: 16 disposals, 3 marks, 1 goal, 6 tackles, 60 SCPoints, 76 CKPoints


David Myers only had 69% ToG (lowest for the Dons) and has only been averaging 70% for the year, which is his lowest career total and well down on his peak of 88% ToG from 2011 and the 79% he averaged in his last full year, which was 2014. That probably explains his lack of Supercoach success, also with an average of 16 disposals a game, with 11 of them being uncontested. Andrew McGrath has a BE of 100 this week (also on the bye), so like Andy Otten, it’s probably time to send him away for the year and bring in a premo defender in his place.

James Stewart would have made the 11.2% of Supercoachers who own him very happy with a career high effort of 105 SCPoints (also the first time he’s ever scored in triple digits), with that score pushing his BE down to just 3. With that in his rolling average for the next two games, if he can put up a couple more strong games (Essendon have Sydney, Brisbane and Collingwood over their next 3 games), he should pop over the 300K mark.

Sam Powell-Pepper didn’t have the greatest game, but his BE is still at a manageable 46 SCPoints, but he has probably nearly peaked. He is playing Brisbane this week, who he scored 97 SCPoints against in Round 6 though.

Carlton VS GWS

David Cuningham

MID | SC Price: $283,000

Round 12 Stats: 19 disposals, 5 marks, 2 goals, 82 SCPoints, 74 CKPoints

Caleb Marchbank

DEF | SC Price: $369,900

Round 12 Stats: 18 disposals, 7 marks, 4 tackles, 95 SCPoints, 87 CKPoints

Zac Fisher

MID | SC Price: $216,000

Round 12 Stats: 12 disposals, 2 marks, 1 tackle, 55 SCPoints, 40 CKPoints

Tom Williamson

DEF | SC Price: $246,800

Round 12 Stats: 10 disposals, 2 marks, 1 tackle, 32 SCPoints, 33 CKPoints

Tim Taranto

MID/FWD | SC Price: $362,000

Round 12 Stats: 9 disposals, 1 mark, 4 tackles, 1 goal, 45 SCPoints, 45 CKPoints

Harry Perryman

DEF/MID | SC Price: $178,400

Round 12 Stats: 7 disposals, 3 marks, 3 tackles, 48 SCPoints, 38 CKPoints


Tim Taranto didn’t have the best score (understandable since he only had 9 touches) and with a BE of 82 and the Giants on the bye, this is probably the week to cut him loose. Caleb Marchbank got back to what we saw from him earlier in the year after a run of 3 games where he averaged just 64 SCPoints. His BE is down to 52, so should keep for another week or two.

Melbourne VS Collingwood

Mitchell Hannan

FWD | SC Price: $282,200

Round 12 Stats: 15 disposals, 1 mark, 1 goal, 3 tackles, 51 SCPoints, 56 CKPoints

Tim Broomhead

FWD | SC Price: $296,400

Round 12 Stats: 23 disposals, 2 marks, 5 tackles, 80 SCPoints, 84 CKPoints

Matthew Scharenberg

DEF | SC Price: $201,400

Round 12 Stats: 19 disposals, 6 marks, 69 SCPoints, 68 CKPoints

Will Hoskin-Elliot

FWD | SC Price: $374,200

Round 12 Stats: 18 disposals, 6 marks, 2 tackles, 62 SCPoints, 71 CKPoints

Callum Brown

MID/FWD | SC Price: $117,300

Round 12 Stats: 16 disposals, 1 mark, 2 tackles, 56 SCPoints, 47 CKPoints


The Pies have the bye this week, which probably removes the option of potentially downgrading to Callum Brown, who had 13 handballs among his 16 disposals.  Will Hoskin-Elliot is another trade out option having the bye this week, his BE is slightly lower than some at 67, which sits below his season average of 79, but the potential price gain is probably minimal at this point.

Rick Grimes

Brilliant, as usual. Wigg must be knocking on the door.


Let's hope he's held out, would love him as a starting rookie for cheap next year!!


Knocking? The thing must be off its hinges by now


Who was/is unluckier? 'Ellis-Yolman last year or poor Wiggy?


Fyfe to Oliver will leave me with 17,800 in bank.
Next week will be hoping Parsons and Berry generate enough cash so I can trade in Callum Brown and Lloyd. Should I trade in Cotchin instead this week so it's a sure thing or hope Parsons and Berry generate at least 20k between them? (This is all assuming Lloyd drops to 410kish)

Rick Grimes

A bird in hand is worth two in the bush. Whatever that means. I'd go Cotch and be sure. Both playing well with consistent output, nothing under 89 for either. Oliver bigger ceiling but is a second year player, not that it shows. Cotch prob more of a POD. That is all.


Anyone know how T.Miles is travelling for Box Hill, any chance on coming into the Hawks soon?


has had two games back after his knee injury. First game back was pretty average, last week was alot better. I think we will see him soon.


Given Birchall is about to return from injury and he didn't come in last week when Breust and Hodge weren't available, I'm not sure he'll get another look in soon.


what is Jake Lloyds BE this week


No footywire.. His breakeven will still be high due to 4 still being in the 3 round cycle.

He was predicted to drop to 437,900 and he dropped to 437,500 off the back of his 92.

His 2 round prediction (from rd 11) was 405k. I think it's safe to say he is on track to be 405 – 420k next week due to the fact that he is not known for huge scores, just normally plods along scoring about 100.


What's going on with footywire? BE's haven't updated yet


I am having same problem


yup been like that since this morning – no idea why


Love your work, Barron. I've got stuff all cash generation options left, with Stewart, Barrett and Hannan my only fattened cows left with two spots to fill (and then Tex Walker to upgrade…)


A story of the Grasshopper. He trades and trades and culls non-playing rookies and watches players like Newman and Barrett make money after culling them. He cries. He looks back at Eddy, Mountford, Hibbard jnr, Pickett and smiles sadly knowing that picking dud rookies sucks. He looks at Harbrow now having his 3rd bye week off and feels rage. Starts a protest and a riot. His team is now full premo + (Scooter), with 4 trades left.

Defense (6)
UP: Doc, Adams
P: Hibb, Howe, Tuohy, Harbrow
R: EVW, Perryman (m/d)

Mids (9)
UP: Danger, Pendles, Rocky, Dusty, Titch, JPK, Beams
P: Fyfe, Scooter
R: FD (m/d), FD (m/f)

Ruck (2)
UP: Kreuzer
P: Witts
R: FD (r/f)

Forwards (6)
P: Dahl, Yeo, Nank, TJL, Higgins, Steele
R: Greenwood (m/f), Parsons

4 trades left. Next week he doesn't stop trading, despite knowing he needs to save his trades, EVW + Greenwood to Lloyd + FD
2nd last trade, Witts to Gawn.

1 trade left.

Grasshopper dies happily knowing he tired to jump as high as he could, but ultimately ran out of trades with a season ending injury to Danger in rnd 16 forcing him to buy some Macrae and be left with 150k sitting in the bank and no way to spend it for the rest of the season.

Good luck to all, I hoped you used your trades better than me.

Your sincerely, president no trades left committee


Gold. Really enjoyed the read. I have more trades, but you have a better team. Reflecting on who had the more fun. Right now I don't like the answer. Almost need some disasters to justify my conservatism. Then that would make my fun a bit perverse. Good luck for the rest of the season. Genuinely.


Thanks KBC, will need all the luck I can scrape together. There is plenty of perverse fun left in this season. A quarter of the comp sold Beams. How many sold Hanners and cripps? Or is that Fyfe by another name….
Remember that ant and grasshopper meet the same fate and are reincarnated in 2018 for another glorious year of SC.
Win your cash leagues and enjoy the spoils! Cheers


How did Jay Kennedy-Harris back up his performance this week?


Only played a half…


love the honesty, wonder how many have between 7-12 trades left, that would be me , 2 off full prem,


I've got 11 pre-trading this week


Well that puts you at full premo rnd 14ish, very respectable, especially if you've sailed the bye successfully, ie donut free! If you're full premo with Gawn and 7 trades at rnd 15 then I take my hat off to you!


Massive shout out to Caleb Marchbank! His great score confirmed I can trade him up to Laird for a straight swap after the Adelaide bye. Good boy Caleb!
Stewart to Luke Ryan also looks a great option to free up cash and finish our sides. Hoping big Fawn comes back this week and I can bring him in for Jake Barrett via greenwood to the mids and Nank forward. Barrett to Gawn, never thought I'd be making that trade this year!


Should I bring in Yeo or Macrae?


Bit of a toss up. Macre more consistent while Yeo has got higher ceiling and so far has slightly higher average. I would look at who they are playing for the rest of the season and go from there. Bulldogs probably have a slightly nicer run but its close, neither should be a bad choice.


I'm sick and tired of ollie wines. My midfield has got other premiums of Heppell and Beams that are also annoying, as Heppell just not quite being proper premium and Rockliff back so Beams might drop off. With this considered, I want to go SPP to C.Brown to get some cash and then Wines to Danger. Ignoring bye, defense and mids are full premo on field, ruck is goldy and witts, and forward is one away but also has JJK. Would have 9 trades after making those two trades. Good decision to get Danger?


You miss the games this week mate? Heppel 114, his best since round 5 and Beams 146, equal best in the league for the week? They were both underpriced fallen premo's when you bought them, what more do you want?

You did the right thing not starting danger and could have snatched him a few weeks ago for an absolute steal, now its likely too late to bring in a 660k player. Look to cheaper options so you have the cash to upgrade those questionable premos (Steele, Newman, Heppel,etc.) when you can, JPK is cheap as chips at the moment and come home crazy every year, Shuey has a great record at home and has 7 games there coming up.
Thats my opinion.


Started with Beams and Heppell. Wary of the pair, especially Beams because Rockliff is back. Don't have Steele or Newman.
Wasn't able to get Danger few weeks ago and think he is a must, better getting him now than when he is $700.
Like I say, only got 1 on field player to upgrade, two if you count Witts.
Still have cash generating with Greenwood, Ainsworth (if plays), Stewart, Scharenberg, Bolton and Barrett (if plays).
After these two trades still have 9 trades and $249 in bank.


Mate youre flying, great job. I'd be very careful trading in 660k player.


Lol. Why do you think I'm flying.
And i just dont want to be stuck with 3 borderline premo mids. I would have to get rid of wines at some stage right??


Wines played much better the back half of last season, and averages much more at AO where Port are playin more games than on front half of the year. I reckon he can av 110 from here.


He only got above 110 four times in the back half of 2016, 3 of them not at adelaide oval. : /


I am seriously considering bringing the Bont in this week or next as it seems even if he does have a poor game, he still seems to score well somehow which i like the look of.
BUT……. with all these unhappy Supercoachers around directing their disgust towards Champion Data (who inturn put out their reasonings why Bonts and JPK scored what they did), I wonder if the Bont will continue to be favoured or start being scored more harshly?


Bont is not being favoured at all.
The way he plays is just supercoach friendly. High number of tackles every game plus spoils and tap on's. All adds up.


Fair enough. Either way, he scores well even in bad games so welcome to my team Bonts.


And ridiculously good ball use, most recent game aside.

Top Gun

He scores well because like Pendlebury he is silky smooth and has good disposal efficiency.

bob the builder

Yeo or Heeney??


I like Yeo


I'd say Yeo.
Heeney has a lot of premo mids at Sydney to contend with, Yeo has 7 of the last 11 games at Domain Stadium including 4 of the next 5.


Heeney has a lower floor for mine. West Coast still not settled and Yeo does pick up the odd shut down role and more likely to have low output the odd week.


Fyfe to Bont this week or wait a week and grab Neale or Merrett?
Have 18 playing this week before the fyfe trade


Get the bont, had a stinker and still scored 92, merrett has has had 2 below 90 games with 32 and 33 disposals. If bont gets 32 he might score 700.


Hope Alex Witherden gets a look in soon. Cheap & mid/def dpp. Awesome as always BVC


So do I Pie. Or even Joe Atley from Port


The lack of injuries has robbed Atley & Drew a chance


I have 15 trades before making any this week
Should I look at trading Fyfe? I currently have 17 onfield before making any trades and if I trade Fyfe to Jpk it will help get me to 18.


Not the worst option. You've got excess trades so consider holding Fyfe if you can and maybe even bringing in Ryan and a Premo for a couple of your Rd 13 rookies, e.g Taranto/Myers/Otten etc.


Just do it mate. Having 15 trades left is a luxury.

Trade as many premo's as you need to make your team full promo ASAP


Reports are coming out today that Nat Fyfe has been experiencing "agonising pain" due to an upper chest injury that he has been carrying for weeks.



Bye should do him the world of good!


I get the same pain when I think as to why I haven't traded him out yet.


Too much work on the peck deck while waiting for broken leg to heal


i am ranked 1300th overall, been climbing up the ranks the past 5 weeks from 29000th in round 7.
i scored 1801 and 1895 in the first 2 bye rounds however look to struggle this week.
i have 17 scoring players (16 premium – 1 tom stewart). i also have mutimer and picket as playing players however doubt either will get a game. should i make a trade to have atleast 18 players scoring.

i will be full premo next week with the plan of bringing in jake lloyd into defence.


Yes Gary you should try & have 18 players if you're going for rank.
That being said it's basically impossible to realistically have a chance at winning the SC overall when you're ranked 1300 however that being said my goal over the past 4 years has been to score as low in the ranks as I possibly can. As I don't care about league games.

I'm currently ranked 1156 and also have SFA chance at winning overall because the vast majority of the top 5% teams have most of the same premium players.
The reason those that are a lot better positioned is because they had the high scoring rookies & midfielders playing at the right time, while others such as myself had predominantly the high scoring rookies sitting on the bench, it's been this way ever since Supercoach had forums helping everyone.

Good luck mate.


Great Work Barron.

Wigg and Atley (Port) must be close to a game.


Gr8 stuff again Barron
What more can wigg do to get a game?
Got me by 1 point in the happy place.
Gr8 battle flying Howe got u over the line


Pikey barely made a change last year and was/am afraid this year would be more of the same.

A lot of talent going to waste in the reserves atm…


15 Trades, $260,000 in bank

3 away from full premo. with barret, Ssellwood and greenwood hopefully turning into Sloane, dusty and yeo by the end of the season. However not sure I want to finish the season with shaw, fyfe and Sandilands, which could end up being luxury trades to the likes of hibbered, mumford etc. My dilemma being that barrett, greenwood and S.selwood all have money left to generate and im not quite sure where to go with trades this week, potentially thinking of using luxury trades now as ive still got afew trades, going fyfe to J.selwood and sandi to mumford, however this may be abit risky as id still have to upgrade 3 players with only 88K and not much cash generation happening on the bench.

DEF: Doc, Laird, Roberton, Adams, Simpson, Shaw (Scharenberg, O’connor)

MID: T.mitchell, Danger, Pendles, Trealor, M.crouch, Fyfe, S.selwood, Barret ( Cousines, miles, hibbered)

Ruck: Grundy, Sandi (Strandica)

Forward: Macrae, buddy, dahl, nankeveris, heeney, greenwood (eddy, j.jones)


Lads, my shark move to claim a cheap jack steven as a POD is failing spectacularly.

Am I best to hold him or scooter as a M9 loophole/emergency.


Get to full team, then worry about bench cover


I'd worry about getting the rest of your team sorted first. Most people have a couple of players who are frustrating them at the moment.


Am almost full premo.

If I axe steven will be at full premo after next weeks 2 trades (zerret and Lloyd in; sselwood at M9).

If I keep steven for M9 will take another week, and would probably wait to get more value from Selwood.


Thoughts on mid to bring in for fyfe? Got about 568k to use. Thinking JPK. Maybe Bont??

Got Titchell, Pendles, Danger, Jelwood, Dusty, Scooter.

Boner Contention

Whitfield or Barlow Stinga. Have a good look


Who are the best r13 playing downgrade targets. Just brown and Ryan it seems who have the bye
