DacZawson · 25/07/2017 at 14:52

Just before the season finishes, I'd like to thank all the regular commenters on this page.
Your advice is almost as beneficial if not greater than the articles posted by Jock and the Crew.
You deserve recognition.

    jockreynolds · 25/07/2017 at 14:55

    Fantastic stuff Dac – couldn't agree more mate

    SC_Kev7 · 25/07/2017 at 16:08

    The mind is already drifting towards season 2018, DZ. A lot to unpack and learn from this season!

      INPieman · 25/07/2017 at 17:46

      Liam Jones is a beast weapon Kev. That's just how strange this season has been. If someone had of said that would happen in the preseason you'd put them in a nuthouse

        Derek · 25/07/2017 at 18:30

        It give hope to players like Zac Dawson. I saw he kicked a few goals in the VFL this year………

          INPieman · 25/07/2017 at 19:04

          If Zac Dawson becomes a Goliath key forward next year Derek I'll shoot my TV & take up knitting

    NovemberFoxtrotIndia · 25/07/2017 at 17:50

    Endorse the original post above. Discovered this site 80% of the way through last season and logon to see most posts now.
    Apart from a few wallies and piemans mate the majority are informative giving a different slant to my thinking…

    6 trades left
    In two leagues
    Sitting 8 and 5th..

    It's been fun..

    NutSack · 25/07/2017 at 18:11

    The Sack would like to thank Jock and the boys, Crouchings Ant hanging from roof by cotton thread childrens story still has me waking up in cold sweat and I will almost put money on it that in 2018 Higgo "Salt of the Earth" Higgonbotham will get a taste of Cathys sweet goodies. Mmmmm mmmmm I hope so. Bring on the finale

    Tyruddanaut · 25/07/2017 at 21:20

    The first time I came to this website was earlier this year and somehow after a year of not playing. I have boosted my rankings up by 50,000. It's fantastic to have all these opinions especially if you are torn and maybe they can teach you something you never thought of

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 26/07/2017 at 11:31

    That's what I love about this website.
    We all talk supercoach except for a few cockroachs and all have an opinion, mostly informed and passionate.
    In the end you make your own call but never hurts to get a second opinion.

    Whatyasmokin · 26/07/2017 at 20:05

    It's been an awesome year in the Jock Reynolds community, thank you all!

Sherring Sniffers · 25/07/2017 at 15:12

What are the chances that Lewis Young plays out the supercoach year?

    jockreynolds · 25/07/2017 at 15:16

    Extremely impressed with him Sniffo – 19 marks in his first two weeks of footy, reads it extremely well. He'd be stiff not to get a nice run at it based on what he's done

    Jake.B · 25/07/2017 at 17:30

    He will especially now morris is out and adams is still injured.

    B T · 25/07/2017 at 21:36

    Yep, he'll play. Future star.

PieingHigh · 25/07/2017 at 15:13

Trades this week:
Option 1. Pendles & Parsons > Sloane and Beams (Greenwood to fwds)
Option 2 Pendles and Sselwood > Sloane and any mid under 580k

I am thinking I will go for option 1.. The main prick I need to beat has Martin, Zerrett, Zorko etc so picking any of them won;t really give me the edge. I am set on Sloane. The only disadvantage to option 1 is that I lose my DPP link but I think Sselwood and Witherden will be good enough cover.


Team after option 1:
Def: T Adams, Laird, Roberton, Lloyd, Shaw, Hibberd (Witherden, McNiece)
Mid: Danger, Titchell, SLoane, Jelwood, Hanneberry, Treloar, Shuey, Beams (Sselwood, Perryman, Cousins)
Ruck: Martin, Ryder (Strandic)
Fwd: Macrae, Yeo, Dahlhaus, Franklin, Higgins, Heeney (Greenwood, Bolton)

2 trades remaining, $53k

    SC_Kev7 · 25/07/2017 at 16:11

    I like Dusty and Ward @570k.

    Blakely at 560k only in .5% if teams

    Tyruddanaut · 25/07/2017 at 21:22

    Don't fall for Beams. He's a trap.
    I'd get Dusty if I were you. Obvious brownlow contention for a winning side

Battling Bill · 25/07/2017 at 15:42

I always look forward to your interesting, informative and humorous Podcast Jock. Thank you.
I have 5 trades left and need to trade out Newman. I have $108K so I can get anyone but Docherty and Hurley but am loath to use two trades to get either one.
Currently my backs are Adams, Laird, Hibberd, Lloyd, Rance and Newman with Ryan and Shaz on my bench. Your suggestion(s) would be appreciated.

    SC_Kev7 · 25/07/2017 at 16:07

    JGov has been very good lately. 5 round average of 103.

    Few guys that were posting good numbers earlier in the year like Roberton, ZacW, Howe are good choices. Hurn has had a crazy two weeks but I don't feel he'll keep putting up those numbers

      Battling Bill · 25/07/2017 at 17:32

      Very good observation Kev. What do you think of Hurn. I asked below how Hurn's role has changed. Do you know? Any WCE SCers know?

    jockreynolds · 25/07/2017 at 16:08

    Thanks very much Battling!! Have you thought about Hurn? What are the communities thoughts in Hurn as a POD for the run home?

      Battling Bill · 25/07/2017 at 17:30

      Interesting Jock. He is $450 @ 88 but with a three game average of 128. His BE is -44 and is set to rise $61K and currently in 1.3% of SC teams. Home games against Bears, Crows and Crows.
      Very tempting indeed Jock but surely he cannot keep three game average up which is better than The Doc.
      Can anyone inform Jock and the community how his role has changed?

        SC_Kev7 · 25/07/2017 at 18:06

        23 uncontested marks and 14 R50 in two weeks, says to me WC are using him as a launchpad for attacks. When Yeo missed the other week Duggan and Hurn were the beneficiaries of that, when Yeo returned Duggan dropped off.

        Whether he stays in this role is up to the coach. Would hate to trade him in now looking for a high scoring PID and he goes back to scoring 70-80's

          Bustlejy · 25/07/2017 at 18:12

          Hurn scored 24 SC points against The Demons 4-5 weeks ago. Was he hurt?

            SC_Kev7 · 25/07/2017 at 18:22

            Yeah. Copped the hip of Viney and missed the next round. He was doing shite anyway, happened in the 4th quarter and only had 5 disposals to his name

          bUCKET__ · 25/07/2017 at 19:53

          He's had a lot of wayward i50 kicks to gobble up from the dockers + pies. Played v well for sure, but no role change that'll see consistently improved scoring.

          Battling Bill · 26/07/2017 at 08:38

          Well Kev. Who would you go for in my situation?

            SC_Kev7 · 26/07/2017 at 09:51

            If it was me I'd go with Gov. We know his role and he's doing it well. I've already jumped on Bont and Billings this year who have had strong form only to see them completely shit their pants.

              Battling Bill · 26/07/2017 at 14:57

              I have traded in Jeremy McGovern thanks Kev and hopefully he continues to be ok.

      Sana · 25/07/2017 at 17:40

      Agreeing with SC Kev on this one. Have a feeling Hurn may burn….

        Battling Bill · 26/07/2017 at 08:39

        Who would you get in?

joffa · 25/07/2017 at 15:56

long time listener/reader. First time poster.
Do I bring in Kreuzer or Gawn this week? Is Kreuzer a greater injury risk?

    jockreynolds · 25/07/2017 at 16:02

    Welcome joffa! Just saw on the twitter that Gawn could be in some doubt with an ankle this week joff. On form I'd go Kreuzer anyway I reckon mate

    Tyruddanaut · 25/07/2017 at 21:24

    All ruckman have almost equal injury risk. Get in any that you would think will score higher

Jimmy · 25/07/2017 at 16:03

Call me crazy but thinking of trading Rance to Glass and then starting Witherden in his place. Will leave me with 3 trades and $350k in the bank. Would allow me to upgrade Greenwood, Heppel and Nankervis.

    Jake.B · 25/07/2017 at 17:33

    With the way witherden is scoring it's definatly not crazy. Especially if you need other upgrades over the field.

    Defying_Madness · 25/07/2017 at 19:52

    Considering a similar move of moving Rance to Sloane and moving Witherden to D6. Sloane would be loopholed with Treloar and Hanners every week to avoid their frequent turds.

      Tyruddanaut · 25/07/2017 at 21:25

      Treloar and Hanners will score higher than Sloane now teams have seen what leaving a tag off will fo

    Rick Grimes · 26/07/2017 at 09:46

    I traded out Shaw a month or so ago and have used Witherden at D6 since. He's pretty consistent. Rance I also own and will hope he pulls out a massive score soon. When he collects the points they can be yuge.

A-Bro-iginal · 25/07/2017 at 16:38

G'day community, I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place, Would love some advice PLEASE!!!

I have 2 trades remaining and have SFA bench cover, main ones are Berry and Greenwood

My question is this,I have Pendles on the bench injured ,,should i trade him and Parsnip and swing Adams into midfield and swing Greewood forward,,,,, there for i can afford Witherden into the mids and Howe down back i only have 33K to play with

Good idea or bad Cheers in advance

    Bustlejy · 25/07/2017 at 18:05

    Have to trade a Pendles as we have informed that he is out for the season.

    Tyruddanaut · 25/07/2017 at 21:32

    Bad Idea. Witherden is not worth it so get someone who is. If you trade Pendles alone then you can get one of these: Gawn (With Suffickient DPP), Neale, Oliver, Parker, Ebert, Bont, Heeney (With Sufficient DPP), Witts (WSD), Jelwood, JPK, Laird (WSD) or Adams. I bet you don't have all those

Stirlsy · 25/07/2017 at 16:48

Connor Glass an African Jock? Not to many red headed Africans that I know of????

    Whatyasmokin · 25/07/2017 at 18:05

    South African?

      jez_m · 25/07/2017 at 20:33


        Stirlsy · 25/07/2017 at 20:40

        Yes, they said he was Irish tv, coach, and he sounded Irish in his interview.

Stewy_the_Swan · 25/07/2017 at 17:12

G'day all. My current team is:
Laird, Simpson, Hibberd, Howe, Roberton, Lloyd (Guthrie/Junker)
Danger, Titch, Fyfe, JPK, Bont, Hanners, Treloar, Jelwood (Witherden/Cousins/Bolton)
Kreuzer, Martin (Strnadica)
Macrae, Dahlhaus, Yeo, Buddy, Heeney, Billings (Greenwood/Brown)
5 trades and $84.9k in the bank.

Sitting 7th in my cash league and playing bottom this week so pretty much guaranteed finals.

Billings is giving me the shits…has gone south since I've bought him in. Also looking to get Adams or a POD (McGovern/Hurn/Hooker/Savage/??) into my backline to bring me home. Happy with the bench cover I have.

Option 1: No trades

Option 2: Billings -> JJK, Patton, Gunston, Daniher, Curnow (or someone else for a POD)

Option 3: Lloyd/Howe/Roberton -> Adams/POD

Option 4: Both 2 and 3 leaving 3 trades and a little bit if cash for finals.

Thoughts and comments much appreciated

    Rivo · 25/07/2017 at 18:46

    G'day Steet.
    As long as you proetect DPP status then yes go for it.

    I like Option 3 best. Personally I would go with Howe or Robertonn to Adams.

    If you wanted to go Option 2 also, I would go Billings to JJK. Another option I like is MacLean. Good luck!

      Rivo · 25/07/2017 at 18:46


    Daniel Z · 26/07/2017 at 03:54

    If you're upset about billings' consistency, none of the guys you suggested will fix that.

    Leeds17 · 26/07/2017 at 06:28

    Weird I'm thinking of trading Billings in.

Rivo · 25/07/2017 at 17:45

Another brilliant Podcast Jock & the team. Just love it.

Have 4 trades and $75k. Trying to squeeze into finals for leagues. Still holding Nank, Lynch and Greenwood on-field. Almost full premium but help needed Community…

D: Doc, Laird, Simpson, Hibberd, Shaw, Rance (Scharenberg, Ryan);
M: Danger, M.Crouch, Treloar, JPK, Jelwood, Sloane, Hanners, Greenwood (Witherden, Mountford, Cousins);
R: Gawn, Martin (Strnadica);
F: Ryder, Franklin, Heeney, Dahl, Nank, Lynch (GC), (Bolton, Eddy).

Option 1: Nank to JJK or MacLean;
Option 2: Nank & Mountford to T.Mitch & Young;
Option 3: Lynch & Mountford to Dusty & Young.
Option 4: Hold

Any advice much appreciated. And good luck to all…

    SC_Kev7 · 25/07/2017 at 19:28

    Hopefully some good news comes through soon re: Gawn's ankle. No structural damage but in some doubt. If he doesn't get up you'll need Nank.

    Dees play first Sat game so I'd hold until Gawn is a confirmed starter. If so, I like option 2. Option 3 if he's out

    Derek · 26/07/2017 at 00:14

    McCrae is almost a must have

      Rivo · 26/07/2017 at 07:32

      Thanks Derek. Can't afford Macrae in just the one trade for Nank. Not sure he is worth a 2 x trade option when Martin and T-Mitch are options.

Bells · 25/07/2017 at 18:06

Jock: "To-be, or not To-be, that is the question. – William Shattner."
Higgo: "I'd like to propose…"
Jock: [interrupts] "I do."

LOL – Keep it up Jock. Tony Hancock finally has some competition.

Jose · 25/07/2017 at 18:48

News is pendles needs more surgery and will unlikely return this season

Tommo09 · 25/07/2017 at 19:15

Who should I trade Pendles to?
Thinking Martin Merrett Kelly or Neale?

    mark · 25/07/2017 at 21:03


    Tyruddanaut · 25/07/2017 at 21:34

    If you can afford Kelly he is the 3rd best this year behind the obvious 2

Joshua · 25/07/2017 at 19:21

Holding Greene and covering with Greenwood with 5 trades left. Gonna hold Witherden with the plan being to offload him for Titch in time for finals but will leave me scarce of cash. In saying this, hold Nank, straight trade to gawn or trade Schazza for Glass and Nank for Kreuz?

    jez_m · 25/07/2017 at 20:35

    I'd wait a week before bringing in Glass. Not sure his job security is all that solid.

      Leeds17 · 25/07/2017 at 20:56

      Probably not really an issues whether he plays or not, most likely looking for the swing

      Mitchell · 25/07/2017 at 21:05

      You obviously didn't watch the game. He looked very composed. But, wait a week if you must. I am getting him this week for cash to get Doc?

        Daniel Z · 26/07/2017 at 04:06

        Agreed, he definitely did not look like a first gamer.

Winter · 25/07/2017 at 19:26

With 4 trades and 30k in the bank

Is it worth downgrading Mountford to a non playing 102k mid/def player in order to upgrade Pendles to Dusty or bring in either Bont or Ebert with 1 trade

Bringing in the swing player will make a connection with Witherden down back and leave me with 2 trades and 107k left

    SC_Kev7 · 25/07/2017 at 19:55

    Have a look at Conor Glass, Winter. 117k mid/def. 80 odd on the weekend

      Winter · 25/07/2017 at 20:11

      Didn't even notice he was a swinger, cheers mate

    Defying_Madness · 25/07/2017 at 20:30

    I would go with Ebert, Is a solid POD has a soft draw and saves you a trade.

SC_Kev7 · 25/07/2017 at 19:52

No worries, Rivo. Good luck getting into your finals mate

    Rivo · 25/07/2017 at 19:59

    Thanks Kev. Good luck with your team too.

Steve · 25/07/2017 at 20:02

Thinking of going rockliff or jack steven to either beams or cotchin(already have selwood) because rockliff just isn't producing premium scores. Thoughts?

ahmad rubas · 25/07/2017 at 20:16

when will round 23 fixtures come out?

Doc · 25/07/2017 at 20:17

Pendles, it's time to go.

Dusty or Sloane in community (or someone else)??

Other mids are Danger, Titch, Jelwood, Bont, Steven, Hanners, Zerret.

    Lazza · 25/07/2017 at 20:25

    Dusty consistently good.. will Sloane be able to hold off the tag … I'd go Dusty if cash no object, but can't ignore Sloane's price … if you have other upgrades to do .. the moneyball option says Sloane.

    Derek · 26/07/2017 at 00:08

    I'm seriously looking st Didebottom to replace Pendles. He will get a lot more midfield time. He got tagged closely last week by Hutchings but still managed 91.

      Russty_ · 26/07/2017 at 00:11

      I thought you already got him in Derek, you were talking him up all week.

        Pitch 72 · 26/07/2017 at 11:40

        St Didebottom?, is he any good?

    Tibor · 26/07/2017 at 16:30

    Dusty because when Sloane gets tagged he drops away too quickly. I still rate Fyfe a bit and JPK a lot

MateSC · 25/07/2017 at 20:24

5 trades left and 31k. Want to get in Kruezer for Nank, Glass in the mid for cover and would like to get Dusty or Titch

DEF: Doch Laird Simpson Rance Lloyd Hibberd (Ryan Witherden)
MID: Danger Zerrett Bont Oliver Jelwood Adams JPK Fyfe (Bolton Cousins Freeman)
RUCK: Martin Nank (Strnadica)
FWD: Macrae Yeo Buddy Dahl Lynch Heeney (Pickett Eddy)

Thoughts are greatly appreciated

    Russty_ · 25/07/2017 at 23:35

    Giday Mate!…if you went Bolton out for Glass and Pickett out for Young this week, that would give you the money to get Kreuzer next week if you still want to.
    Then you'd have better flexibility and cover on all lines except Ruck.

    Tibor · 26/07/2017 at 16:36

    Consider Gawn instead of Kreuzer. K man has been a star and should be this years all Australian but the man with the Beard is back up and running now, Melbourne have everything to play for and Carlton look in wind down mode I think they booked their mad Monday venue this week

JakeHill17 · 25/07/2017 at 20:40

Have 5 trades left and 31k in the bank. 1st and 3rd in the leagues I'm trying to win. Need help with this weeks trades:

Option 1: Maybe sacrifice on of your back 6 (Rance imo) and shift Adams back. Glass in but will be M8. Nank to Kruze
Option 2: Ryan to Glass. Rance out, shift Adams back. Think you'll have the cash for Titch/Dusty.

Thinking option 2 with Titch. Team below is without this weeks trades.

DEF: Doch Laird Simpson Rance Lloyd Hibberd (Ryan Witherden)
MID: Danger Zerrett Bont Oliver Jelwood Adams JPK Fyfe (Bolton Cousins Freeman)
RUCK: Martin Nank (Strnadica)
FWD: Macrae Yeo Buddy Dahl Lynch Heeney (Pickett Eddy)

Thoughts are greatly appreciated

    Tyruddanaut · 25/07/2017 at 21:36

    Option 1 fo sho

    Blakeyp · 26/07/2017 at 08:42

    I know this is not an option but just throwing it out there. How bout Rance to Beams then Nank to Gawn/Mumford. Think you have just enough cash

TOPHAWK1 · 25/07/2017 at 20:41

Great podcast gents!

Back to business.

Seriously stewing over my trade strategy this week. (4 trades in the kitty)

Nankervis has to go. End of story. Made the reasons very clear in previous posts.

However, is it worth placing Ryder at R2 with Stradnica on the bench, and Nankervis forward……..

Now, here is the conundrum……I can then trade out Nankervis for JJK. BANG! Straight switch.

I save a trade, but obviously lose that ruc forward swing flexibility.

At this time of the season, is that one saved trade worth it for that loss in Ruc/Fwd swing flexibility?

I am seriously pondering this move.

Max Gawn's BE is still around 109, and with this latest ankle problem, it makes me think to hold off another week. Not paying an inflated price to secure Kreuzer at $585K.

OUT- Nankervis


    Tyruddanaut · 25/07/2017 at 21:38

    JJK kicked 6 and didn't ton up. Be prepared for a wild ride.
    I'd Gawn plays then I'd lock him in. He can make his BE easy

      Daniel Z · 26/07/2017 at 04:12

      He's been out for what, like 5 or 6 weeks?
      He'll start getting more points off pressure acts as his fitness returns.

    Russty_ · 26/07/2017 at 00:01

    Giday Hawk, I reckon Nank to JJk could be a good move, he does have the ability to go huge and could make all the difference in your finals matches, but would you still want to trade out Martin, averaging 99 …for Gawn after that ?

    Derek · 26/07/2017 at 00:02

    I'm spewin over Nank. Didn't start with him, traded him in after 2 weeks, traded him OUT when he was suspended….. but somehow traded him back IN during the byes. Have to deal with Wingard and Pendles this week.

    Leeds17 · 26/07/2017 at 06:24

    If feeling adventurous Jesse Hogan is very cheap, 106 from only 3 goals & no contested marks, around 70K cheaper than JJK, good draw maybe a rest worry.

jez_m · 25/07/2017 at 20:41

For those looking at Conor Glass this week, bear in mind that Hawthorn haven't usually kept rookies in their side for long. Teia Miles only played a couple of games early this year, Cousins played three games and Wilsmore only played two. Don't be surprised if Glass is just given a couple of AFL games before being sent back to the VFL.

J.Lloyd · 25/07/2017 at 21:01

keep nank or Greenwood. who finishes better?

    Derek · 25/07/2017 at 23:59

    BCrouch could miss a few weeks. More TOG for Greenwood

    Swans2012 · 26/07/2017 at 10:23

    Whichever one you trade out If your lucks like mine

Surferboi69 · 25/07/2017 at 21:07

I laughed very hard during Crouchings Toby green story, well done

Joshua · 25/07/2017 at 21:08

Nank to Gawn with 5 trades remaining? Another trade will be spent next week when I bring in Titch for Witherden. Will then have 3 trades for any problems that arise during finals.

    jez_m · 26/07/2017 at 00:03

    Sounds like a good plan, Josh. Just keep an eye on the injury reports, Gawn is struggling with an ankle injury.

Jacko · 25/07/2017 at 21:08

They played 3-4 others that kept their spot. He is worth the risk.

Jimmy518 · 25/07/2017 at 21:23

Who should be the priority of getting the flick: Rocky, Nank, Newman…6 trades left, if only I could get rid of em all

    Derek · 25/07/2017 at 23:58

    Newman. Wouldn't be surprised if he got dropped soon anyway. McVeigh has taken his job

SirSamuel016 · 25/07/2017 at 21:57

I've got 4 trades left and 229.9k in the bank. I've got both greenwood and m.white in f5 and f6, but I think I'll trade white out this week, swing nank from ruck to forward and bring in gawn. I'll then trade Toby Greene and bring in JJKennedy which leaves me with 100k odd next week to upgrade Greenwood just in time for finals. Thoughts?

Sam · 25/07/2017 at 22:11

Thoughts on the following options to trade in for Rockliff and Greenwood:

A) Kreuzer (Nank goes to F7) and Sloane (M8)
B) Gawn (Nank goes to F7) and Zorko (M8)
C) Gawn (Nank goes to F7) and M.Crouch (M8)

Already have Danger, Dusty, Zerrett, Selwood, Fyfe, Mitchell and Bont.

Appreciate the feedback!

    SC_Kev7 · 26/07/2017 at 09:37

    Zorko suspended for the week.

    A – Kruze/Sloane. MCrouch in ripping form though but doubt over Gawn's ankle

Steeeve · 25/07/2017 at 22:49

Still not 100% sold on trading Nank but if I do who would you recommend to bring in?
Thinking Yeo, Heeney, M Wallis or… Nick Roo.

    jez_m · 26/07/2017 at 00:05

    Of the four you mentioned, I'd go Heeney, Yeo, Wallis and then Riewoldt a distant last. Nothing against the guy, but he's finished from a SC point of view.

      Russty_ · 26/07/2017 at 01:27

      I think he's finished…period, Jez, he should retire after this season, much as that pains me to say.

    Russty_ · 26/07/2017 at 00:14

    Remember he scored 108, 81 and 94 before the wet game, he could easily go back to averaging 90 again.

    Russty_ · 26/07/2017 at 00:40

    Yeo or Heeney, not the other 2.

    B rian · 26/07/2017 at 01:16


      Russty_ · 26/07/2017 at 01:30

      He didn't mention Ryder in his options, so I'm guessing he already has him.

        Steeeve · 26/07/2017 at 12:38

        Close, just can't afford the prick! I wish!

    Leeds17 · 26/07/2017 at 06:28

    Heeney has looked tired but still knocking out solid scores.
    Really no standouts in the forward line this season have a close look at the draw & yery and pick someone who'll have a really good 5 week patch.

    Dean · 26/07/2017 at 20:52

    Bloody hell you don't have YEO?

Jacko · 25/07/2017 at 23:56

Hi Community

I need to cement myself in my league top 4 but i am in a pickle $254,300, 3 trades and I have problem areas everywhere my rank is decent in the top 2-3% but I really want to win my league now. If I lose this round i am out of the top 4.

DEF: Doch, Laird, Lloyd, Rance, Hibberd, Witherden (Newman, McNiece)
MID: Danger, Mitchell, ZMerret, Oliver, Bont, Jelwood, Kennedy Treloar (SSelwood, Cousins, Hibberd NthMelb)
RUC:Nank, Goldy (Darcy)
FWD: Macrae, Yeo, Dahlhaus, Buddy, Lynch, Greenwood (Durdin, Strndica)

What I have been toying with is
Newman > Adams
Nank > Ryder
Nank > Gawn
Lynch > Ryder

even looking at trying to get Dusty. Does anyone know how I can beat my situation with the 3 trades and 254k to get 3 upgrades 🙂

Boosta · 26/07/2017 at 08:48

Hi. Jock. Thanks for your mighty efforts. Recently I checked to see how many of your original team is still intact and from memory you still have 13-14 players.
I have 13 which includes Newman who I am about to trade out and Strnadria.
How are the rest of the community going?

    Rick Grimes · 26/07/2017 at 09:52

    12, And that includes a couple of non-starters (or near enough).

      Boosta · 26/07/2017 at 18:13

      What. You picked two guys in round one and they haven't played a game yet? Surely not Rick.

    jez_m · 26/07/2017 at 10:53

    12 including Strnadica.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 26/07/2017 at 11:36

    Legs 11 for me including everyone's flavor of the month to start Eddy.

      Moosehead · 26/07/2017 at 18:14

      You don't play Bingo too Trigga.

    Keenbutclueless · 26/07/2017 at 12:17

    12 onfield plus Cameron at R3 and Eddy at F8.

    2 premos from original side gone – JJK to injury, and Gunston (rage trade now looking like he's finally showing form). Started 4 mid pricers, 2 gone (Roughy and Sandi). Still have Mills and Nank, both stinking badly. Too many rookie trades and not enough cash to get rid of them.

    Chance to move Nank to Gawn next week, but Mills is harder to shift.

      The Ranger · 26/07/2017 at 12:38

      12 for me including Cameron at R3.

    Whatyasmokin · 26/07/2017 at 20:18

    Only 10 including Darcy Cameron who I knew would be a bench zero/swingman.

    Also this includes Nank who is now relegated to the bench.

    So only 8 on field from my original team, shows how chaotic it's been this year trying to get it right.

Ja191 · 26/07/2017 at 09:10

witherden or scooter on field?

    Rick Grimes · 26/07/2017 at 09:53

    Tough call. Will Withers get more of it with Zorko out?

    Whatyasmokin · 26/07/2017 at 10:33

    Witherden for sure.

    Dutch · 26/07/2017 at 13:51

    I am in the same position except have Rockliff (unfortunately) to throw in the mix – and no loophole option. At this stage I have Witherden on the field over both Scooter and Rockliff. Correct choice?

Tommy · 26/07/2017 at 10:36

Dusty or Titch? In my main league, 1st and 2nd have Dusty, and 3rd has Titch.

    jez_m · 26/07/2017 at 10:51

    Massive fan of Titch. Martin probably has a higher ceiling though.

    POTS · 26/07/2017 at 10:51


    Ja191 · 26/07/2017 at 11:32

    Dusty is a more explosive player and will have big weeks/high ceiling. Titch will never score low but will not score as high. Dusty for me

POTS · 26/07/2017 at 10:39

Have Nank (R2) & Steele (M8) to upgrade. Steele and Greenwood DPP as M8/F7. Keeping Greenwood as M9/D7 as I think he much more consistent than Steel.
Have 7 trades and $800. Current MID – Danger, Titch, Fyfe, JPK, Bont, Jelwood, Parker, Greenwood
Thinking Ryan (D7) to Glass moving Witherden to D7 (losing DPP link).
Steele to any MID under $572K.

Is Dusty worth no cash in the bank? Best option under &572K?

    SC_Kev7 · 26/07/2017 at 14:35

    Glass is a def/mid, POTS. You'll keep your swing with Witherden in the mids.

    If your other rookies are a bit thin I'd suggest keeping a few bucks in the bank as you've still got a few trades up your sleeve. Neale at 529k is pretty proven. Oliver at 525k hasn't had a bad game this year

Jon-Jon · 26/07/2017 at 11:19

One trade left (consistently picking injuries this year) … Walters needs to be replaced but can sub in a mid.
Don't have Martin, Zerret but am thinking MCrouch or even Abblett.
Thoughts Community?

    Rick Grimes · 26/07/2017 at 11:24

    I wouldn't touch Ablett due to injury risk. MCrouch playing exceptionally well.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 26/07/2017 at 11:39

    If you don't want to pick another injury then don't bring in abblett.
    Go a pod. Bring in Blakely.

benjamin B · 26/07/2017 at 11:28

5 trades Left, $103 in bank
Full premo however have pendles, greene, rance and nank causing problems.

Which two should i trade out?
Thinking rance to hibberd and nank to Lewis?
i have an easy win this week and then going pendles to titch and greenwood to heeney the first week of finals?

sound good?

    Cogla13 · 26/07/2017 at 12:51

    Have to trade Pendles first after his second round of surgery. Are you going to leave Greene on the pine for 2 weeks?

    Ja191 · 26/07/2017 at 13:46

    pendles to someone like a beams to free up cash. Then nank>JJK/Gawn

KrazeeEyezK1lla · 26/07/2017 at 14:36

2 trades left, 100k in the bank, Greenwood F6 looks like a keeper. Rocky stain in the midfield. do I upgrade him to Sloane, leaving me with 1 trade and not much cash? or just keep the faith?

full premo otherwise.

    Cogla13 · 26/07/2017 at 15:41

    You'd just be trading one problem for another. Keep the faith. Bris have an easy run home.

    Pete · 26/07/2017 at 15:53

    move greenwood into the middle n trade in kennedy

Pete · 26/07/2017 at 15:52

Damn , u guys just dished up all my POD's to the whole community , my 770th rank might be in trouble this week

Juzzy · 26/07/2017 at 15:58

Silly post but …
I have read many posts regarding trading in junker. Having never heard that surname I began to assume that "junker" was new supercoach vernacular for a non-playing, late round loophole option.
Was talking to a fellow footy tragic last night ….

" I am thinking of trading Ryan to a junker" I said.
"So you are going to trade him to Junker ?"
"To any late round junker"
"So you are trading in Junker ?"
"I am trading in "a" junker" etc, etc …

After a couple of minutes of a who's on first style conversation he convinced me that Oscar Junker is a real person and that I am mildly retarded.
Living and learning ….

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 26/07/2017 at 16:41

    Hibberd (of the north variety) now injured is my junker.

    Ruddigar · 26/07/2017 at 16:44

    I think your Junker might be injured, he was struggling to get a game anyway because North have some other Cunnington playing that role……

    Moosehead · 26/07/2017 at 18:03

    I'm with you Juzzy. I enjoy SC but many are obsessed with it and have too much time on their hands.

      Don't Blush Baby · 26/07/2017 at 18:50

      Each to there own but for me who gets on average 40 emails & 30 phone calls a day ,I find SC a perfect release over the week

      Whatyasmokin · 26/07/2017 at 20:08

      Grab footy alerts mobile app that's awesome for late ins and outs, you really don't need THAT much time to do well in supercoach.

        Rocksta · 26/07/2017 at 22:53

        Thanks for the heads up. Will be invaluable come SC league Finals.

      Juzzy · 27/07/2017 at 00:47

      Not a manifesto Moose, just a funny story.

      I too love the release of SC… and Oscar Junker is a pretty effing funny name.

    Nicko · 26/07/2017 at 21:14

    is Oscar Junker Playing this season that yo know of

      Juzzy · 27/07/2017 at 00:42

      Still rookie listed as far as I know Mate.

Pete · 26/07/2017 at 17:37

Does anyone know when playing for league only, what round do the finals start?

    Pedro the swift · 26/07/2017 at 18:00

    This is the last round before the SC finals start in round 20. Good luck.

The Hoff · 26/07/2017 at 17:51

Should i bring in Connor Blakely or to risky he has scored 10 hundreds in the last 11 games the other score was a 74 or do i go a proven promo

    Don't Blush Baby · 26/07/2017 at 18:52

    IMO proven, but they have been H & C ,depends what your team looks like Hoff

    Dean · 26/07/2017 at 20:42

    Blakely will be a great POD and I think he is a great pick considering many teams have a lot of players that are the same.

Nicko · 26/07/2017 at 21:12

tom stewart for rory laird or Michael Hurley or another good defender


S Bolton for the best forward what ever it is apart from the ones i have. (i have J Macrae, E Yeo, L Franklin, I Heeney, J Cameron and J Kennedy. H Greenwood (as Bench)

NutSack · 27/07/2017 at 22:41

Can someone please tell me what Toby Greene keeps mumbling throughout the podcast? Thanks

    Sassy · 28/07/2017 at 12:53

    Nek minnit- YouTube it.

Dan · 28/07/2017 at 00:22

Option 1 – Trade Pendles for J. Selwood and downgrade J.Stewart to Lewis Young? Leaves me with 240k in the bank to upgrade Nank or Greenwood in the forward line.

Option 2 – Trade Pendles to Dusty and J.Stewart to Lewis Young. I'll have less money in the bank although I feel like having Dusty in the run home is a must.

I have 8 trades left

Andy · 28/07/2017 at 07:19

Anyone considering trading out Greenwood? I got the notorious Greene on the bench for two weeks and Greenwood taking his spot on the field. You reckon I should trade Greene or upgrade Greenwood (I have $470k to spend) and get Wallis? Thank you!

    Plugger · 28/07/2017 at 09:11

    Is Wallis enough of an upgrade for Greenwood? And will he end on your bench when Greene returns – that's a lot of value on the bench. If there is a top FWD you don't have, suggest you bring him in for Greene and use your cash at another strategic point.

Heath · 28/07/2017 at 08:51

Who should I trade Pendles to? I have $523 700 available cash, I'm thinking either Marc Murphy, Brad Ebert or Cotchin. There is also the option of Beams but after this trade I'll have 1 left so I don't want to take the risk due to his injury history.

Nicko · 28/07/2017 at 09:27

tom stewart for Michael Hibberd

Tibor · 28/07/2017 at 10:14

Toby the knob out for the yo yo and Goldy out for the big bearded master, any thoughts appreciated

Tibor · 28/07/2017 at 10:32

Thanks Crouching One there is just nowhere near enough reference to Josh Bootsma in footy discussion, how quickly people forget……

Johno · 28/07/2017 at 10:36

I have Walters, Greene, Wingard, and Zorko all in my team and it has totally screwed my structure and strategy going into finals and will most likely stop me getting full premium 🙁 stuff this great game!!
