Round 19 Supercoach Panic Room

Published by Patch on


Here we go, community, the last week before finals.

This is where we hit the home straight and start pumping out 2400+ scores and showing the mates in the office who’s boss.

Or we would if our teams weren’t falling apart at the seams.

This week doesn’t have as much widespread carnage as last week, but there’s still plenty enough pain – and panic – to go around. Especially in everyone’s favourite line, So let’s get into it.


I told you last week North wouldn’t survive with Majak Daw flying solo in the ruck. They’d need to rush a big body back into the side to aid him and I wasn’t wrong in that regard. Where I was wrong was picking the man they’d rush back – Brayden Pruess has been named this week for North, not Todd Goldstein.

And just for added pain, many of you went from Goldstein to GWS’ real life giant, Shane Mumford. He’s going to miss with an ankle injury. Should only be a week, but at this stage of the season that’s 20% of games left. UGH.

The Nank Train is set to derail this week, with Jack Riewoldt’s absence from the side meaning Toby Nankervis has been named at centre half forward, and is likely to spend most of the day there while Ivan Soldo shoulders the ruckwork.

Dayne Zorko and Toby Greene felt the wrath of the tribunal this week, with Zorko the Magnificent given a week off, while The Butcher of Blacktown was given two. Hold Zorko, trade Greene. And never trade him back in.

Dion Prestia will miss a week or two with knee soreness, Chad “The Chad” Wingard will miss up to three with an ankle knock and Koby Stevens is injured.

The old bastards are feeling the pinch this time of year, with Nick Riewoldt and Matt Priddis both missing this week, while Joey Montagna may have played his last AFL game after tearing his hamstring.

Jarrod Berry and Hugh McLuggage have been rested, and while Hugh Greenwood is on an extended bench, I’m reasonably confident he’ll be named.

Eddie Betts had his appendix removed and won’t play this week, while Matt Brad Crouch (which is the Crouch you don’t have, if you have a Crouch. Coming from someone who also gets confused) will miss with a cheekbone fracture.

In the slim pickings of good news, Gary Ablett is back, and Max Gawn has been named. So two have Fremantle Rookies Luke Ryan and Brennan Cox.

And coaches are content to ruin 2018’s rookie picks by naming more debutants. Max “Power” Spencer, Luke “We’ll Drive Into The City And” Parkington, will debut, while we’re a chance to see Joshua “Fridge” Begley, Josh “Got Lost On Bring Your Kid To Work Day And Never Left” Daicos, Myles “Totally Not A Wildling Name” Poholke, Sam “SEYMOUR” Skinner, Jacob “Of Corn” Allison, Corey “Nice, Garry” Lyons,  Sunday teams dependant.

There are also whispers that Michael Hurley is under an injury cloud. While expected to play, keep your emergencies ready just in case.




After the last two attempts to give advice ended in Dayne Zorko and Bryce Gibbs completely falling apart (Gibbs taking out Rockliff in a double whammy), and general recommendation for Shane Mumford, I’m not going to advice on a particular player lest they fall in a manhole and never be seen again.

Instead – this is the time of year where you trade your arse off. Unless you’re firmly ensconced in your top 4 of a league, you should be trading. A player missing a week now is missing 20% of the season, leaving you with 20% less points from that bloke until the end of the year.

We absolutely cannot be holding blokes if you are in a mad scramble for the top 8, or in a mad scramble for the big dance. Especially if those blokes – *glares at Priddis and Nick Reiwoldt* – are underperforming.

If you’ve been saving your trades, the next two weeks are when you fire away, not with a week or two left. Trade while you’ve still got enough time to make a difference.


There was some great discussion in Higgo’s Draftstars article last night, but I’m most interested in the discussion surrounding the midfield. Hutchins will negate one of Beams or Rockliff, and based on last week, it won’t be Rockliff, who may again be a tagger himself.

As such, I’m avoiding him, Beams and Luke Shuey, scared off by the tag threat, and have heavy bookends and a light-weight midfield. Mathieson, despite his many flog-like qualities, has quietly been accumulating form in the midfield, and I think he’ll step into Zorko’s void this week. Barrett and Witherden should also get more midfield points, making them bargains.

This has allowed me to use Shannon Hurn and Jeremy McGovern, who should mop up across half back as Brisbane’s forward 50 entries haven’t been as efficient as they could be, hopefully resulting in more posessions. My forward line and ruck line speak for themselves. Who are you looking at, community?

Limited entries – so get in quick sticks! Click here to catch up on Higgo’s Draftstars genius so far


If you’re one for poetic meaning, The Two Kennedys could bookend your captaincy weekend. JPK plays game 200 against the Hawks, his old club and his family’s club, while JJK is playing Brisbane, which is less poetic and more “I might kick 12”.

However, being poetic won’t get you far in this game, especially when Paddy Dangerfield sits in the middle of them, playing Carlton no less. We even sent Lekdog to be our Torquay correspondent this week to look after old mate Danger.

He needs to be either a C or VC this week – but which one?

If you have Tom Mitchell, the Titch-Danger combo will be popular and sensible, with Titch surely fired up to show Horse Longmire how much he really gave away. The same could go the other way, with Buddy Franklin a chance to kick 6 or none against his old side.

Max Gawn against a Goldstein-less North side could be worth a VC shout, but not much else stands out on Saturday afternoon unless you have a GWS midfield POD, or fancy Fyfe or Neale away at Spotless.

Danger playing Carlton rules out Kreuzer and Docherty as options, while Sunday gives us the chance to plonk the C on Zach Merrett, The Bont and Sloane. However, Collingwood will certainly send Greenwood to counter Sloane’s influence, so I’d give him a miss.


Best of luck, community!

GloryDays90 · 28/07/2017 at 13:12

I think you mean Brad Crouch will miss with a fractured Cheekbone

    Patch · 28/07/2017 at 13:16

    Oh for god's sake I'm an idiot. Double checked it and still somehow got it wrong

      GloryDays90 · 28/07/2017 at 13:23

      Haha all good. I knew because i traded in M.Crouch this week as my final POD

    BigM · 28/07/2017 at 13:18

    Correct – The B Crouching one is out
    M Couching is named in the guts

INPieman · 28/07/2017 at 13:18

Gold Patch! Make sure you have defence cover this week. Taylor Adams 50/50. Last game of the round doesn't help

    hedski · 28/07/2017 at 13:52

    Damn, was gonna trade him in for Pendles since I'm the only person on earth who doesn't have him.

      INPieman · 28/07/2017 at 14:11

      You'd want to wait till final team sheets are in

hedski · 28/07/2017 at 13:19

Mummy could be out for 2 weeks, panic setting in Patch!

    Patch · 28/07/2017 at 13:41

    Have seen that now, Hedski. That's now definitely a trade if you can spare one – the rucks are an absolute nightmare this year. To think Jarrod Witts has been the best ruck pick of 2017 is bonkers

      hedski · 28/07/2017 at 13:51

      Spare trade? No. Have Pendles to deal with.

      The Ranger · 28/07/2017 at 15:57

      And to think that when he was at the Pies we used to put a rude word beginning with F in front of his name and giggle about how crap he was…

    Sppthsayer · 28/07/2017 at 14:37

    oh wow, that makes my Goldstein-Mumford combo look like two massive boobs swinging around in the chest of my team. I may have to keep Nank and bring in……geez, Ryder? Gawn? Any advice? I could trade them both out I guess.

      JohndJames · 28/07/2017 at 15:31

      Go with Ryder or Kruze or Max,if you have the trades and no other injuries like Pendles,go the double trade.

Paddy Crip · 28/07/2017 at 13:27

really need some help this week.
DEF – Doc, Adams, laird, Lloyd, hibberd, witho [perryman, Guthrie]
MID – Titch, dusty, bont, ross, Selwood, hannerz, rocky, Greenwood [mountford, bolton, cousins]
RUC – Grundy, macevoy [STrdica]
FWD – Macrae, Dalhouse, Buddy, Nank, Lynch, Heeney [eddy, parsons]

3 trades left 72k in bank. thinking parsons to young and then next week either upgrade Greenwood to a perm of a perm defender, I could trade nank this week to someone like JJK or De Goey but unsure community!!

    Paddy Crip · 28/07/2017 at 13:31


    Patch · 28/07/2017 at 13:46

    Can you go Greenwood to Dayne Beams this week for a cost of 20k? Then have a look at painting the fence next week to get a premo defender in for Nank? Feel you won't get Beams cheaper than 415k, but JJK might have a stinker (especially as I'm bringing him in). What do you reckon?

      paddy Crip · 28/07/2017 at 14:14

      will beams be worth a trade though. want A 105 AVERAGE

Hand Candy FC · 28/07/2017 at 13:29

I'm trading out LYNCH this week for JJK. Now watch Lynch go 160, and JJK dislocate his face. This is the way SC works this year.

    Patch · 28/07/2017 at 13:42

    Hand Candy no! I'm bringing JJK in! Between us he'll dislocate every joint in his body…

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/07/2017 at 14:22

      Looks like patchs poison goes to JJK this week
      Damn was thinking about bringing him in.

    Locked and Loaded · 29/07/2017 at 06:41

    HAHAHAHAH dislocate his face HAHAHAH GOLD

Beastiano · 28/07/2017 at 13:31

Spot on as always Patch. Beautiful synopsis

Nickf · 28/07/2017 at 13:34

Thanks for not cursing any of my players again this week patch!

    Patch · 28/07/2017 at 13:46

    Haha, give it time, Nick! Still plenty of daylight left for me to curse players!

Cogla13 · 28/07/2017 at 13:40

As soon as Gold Coast saw Jack wasn't named for Richmond they withdrew May because Richmond now only have 1 tall forward in Nank. I reckon Richmond will have a late change, surely Elton or Batchelor comes in now for a small.

SirSamuel016 · 28/07/2017 at 13:40

4 trades left and got some issues in Montagna, Priddis and Greene. Thinking of going Greene to JJK and Montagna to Hurn. Next week I'll trade M.White, swing Nank from ruck to f5/f6 and then bring in a good ruck. That leaves me with one trade for injury or to upgrade Greenwood. Current team is:

Def: Doch, Adams, Lloyd, Rance, Shaw, Montagna (Ryan, M.Hibberd)
Mid: Danger, TMitch, Zerret, Jelwood, Bont, Hanners, Treloar, Priddis (J.Thomas, D.Mountford, J.Cousins)
Ruck: Grundy, Nank (Strnadica)
For: Dahlhaus, Franklin, T.Greene, T.Lynch (suns), Greenwood, M.White (Durdin, Miles)

Does the plan sound good?

    Patch · 28/07/2017 at 14:14

    As General Soreness said on Twitter today, rhyming slang is not the only reason we call him Shannon Burn. Prefer Roberton or McGovern, but JJK a solid choice

      SirSamuel016 · 28/07/2017 at 14:56

      Noted. Thank you for the help Patch!

Tommy · 28/07/2017 at 13:49

Is it worth using a trade to allow me to get another swingset in Def so i can loop Witherden with Rance every week? Would mean i only have 1 trade left, but means i will have decent cover in def and fwd. Currently, my 2 bench defenders are ONE of Shaz/Ryan and Junker,. If Shaz isnt named, i could use him but he is often a late in and its risky using him as a loop.
Thoughts guys?

    Soothsayer · 28/07/2017 at 14:40

    Connor Glass is your man….

      Patch · 28/07/2017 at 14:41

      Agree, Sooth

        Tommy · 28/07/2017 at 15:26

        Cheers patch, but should I be pulling the trigger if it would mean I only have the one trade left?

      Tommy · 28/07/2017 at 15:26

      Cheers mate, but would you pull te trigger of it meant only 1 trade left?

        Swans2012 · 29/07/2017 at 09:19

        No, that trade worth more than the potential loop points….imo…at least for another round or two, plenty of time for carnage to come!

Thomas · 28/07/2017 at 13:50

Titch or Dusty for my last mid spot
Midfield currently reads: Danger, Neale, Jelwood, JPK, Treloar, Fyfe, Bont, Witherden

    Patch · 28/07/2017 at 14:42

    Dusty playing for a new contract. Every Brownlow vote is an extra few hundred thousand. Lock Dusty in

Andrew · 28/07/2017 at 13:55

Dusty or Merrett?
Merrett looks the more consistent but dusty can go bigger

    Patch · 28/07/2017 at 14:42

    As I just said above, Dusty's playing for a contract and a Brownlow. Lock him in

Joshua · 28/07/2017 at 14:16

nank to gawn or martin?

    Patch · 28/07/2017 at 14:43

    Big Maxy Gawn

Mitch · 28/07/2017 at 14:16

Have 6 trades left and looking to trade out 2 of Newman, Rockliff and Nankervis. Any suggestions and why?

    Patch · 28/07/2017 at 14:44

    Newman and Nank. Rocky a rolled gold premo, even if he doesn't look it at times. Especially this week he's been confirmed as not tagging, so he gets another week at least.

      Andrew · 28/07/2017 at 19:36

      Where was this confirmed?

Nicko · 28/07/2017 at 14:19

Need to trade out either Rocky or Roo. Considering he's rested this week I'm thinking Roo.
Who to bring in out of Yeo or JJK?

    Patch · 28/07/2017 at 14:44

    Yeo for Roo sounds like a solid move Nicko

Finnius123 · 28/07/2017 at 14:20

Goldy to Stef this week

I Steele Your Girl · 28/07/2017 at 14:24

Is anyone worried that Dusty could miss this week? I have traded him into my final mid spot but thinking maybe I should avoid him if he could be a late out

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/07/2017 at 14:37

    Yeah there r rumours floating he and hurley may miss.
    Just rumours but would prefer not to hear them.
    Make sure you have cover I guess.

    JohndJames · 28/07/2017 at 15:37

    Just reverse trade and wait just before the game to see if he's playing,then if he is bring him in,that's what I'm doing,have to replace Pendles If Dusty is out I'm trading in Merrett.

    FCAbel · 28/07/2017 at 17:49

    Up vote for great name

Corey · 28/07/2017 at 14:25

Should we hold Mumford?
Bring In Ryder for Nank?

    Soothsayer · 28/07/2017 at 14:39

    I have Mumford…..and Goldy too, thinking the same vacuous thoughts Corey, but I may have to keep Nank and trade in Ryder.

      Corey · 28/07/2017 at 15:33

      Yeah nice, My other option is Josh Kennedy for WCE

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/07/2017 at 14:31

Loved the rookie fodder
"We'll drive into the city and" parkington was my favorite -top shelf right there.

VC tonight on JPK. 200 and playing the Hawks who he loves to run rampant against think an avg of just shy of 120 over his career.

Just a heads up if you VC Danger. Make sure you have a loop you can use on Sunday else you will have to use your Capt. Most popular loops play before danger on Sat night. Beware the danger trap. Check make sure.

Teams eerily similar in Draftstars patch let's hope we are both in the money.

    Pauly Walnuts · 28/07/2017 at 14:36

    I'm putting the VC on Fyfe ,reckon they won't tag and could go large , thoughts ?

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/07/2017 at 14:40

      Hope you r right as he is in my team
      Be gr8 to see him go bezerk with mummy out not a bad plan.

    The Ranger · 28/07/2017 at 16:02

    Good advice Trig, the VC – C could be tricky this week.
    I'm going with Gawn into Danger, Maxy is due a big one.

    Swans2012 · 29/07/2017 at 09:24

    My problem exactly trig, no late loops, even considered bringing one in with one of my last 2 trades but sanity prevailed. threw the vc on buddy as realistically you need a 150 to not take danger at the moment and figured buddy would score 60 or 160 so at least no should I shouldn't I 120….

The Hoff · 28/07/2017 at 14:50

Blakely or Kelly or others

west brotherzz · 28/07/2017 at 14:52

need a fwd under 480k. like Wallis and de goey. not that keen on key fwds. really need Some help

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/07/2017 at 14:58

    With pendles out I like De goey.
    Was in everything last week might be the start of something.

    McLean from the dogs a good option avg 112 last 3 weeks playing alot more through midfield lately

      Patch · 28/07/2017 at 15:45

      McLean's in my draft side and is treating me well. Big POD, too

Soothsayer · 28/07/2017 at 15:03

In fact I'm leaning towards Gawn for Mumford, is Gawn an injury risk?

    Patch · 28/07/2017 at 15:45

    Shouldn't be, but impossible to say

POTS · 28/07/2017 at 15:03

Have 5 trades and $54K in the bank.
Deciding on one or two trades this week. Can't lose 3rd spot

Option 1 (2 trades)
Go early on Ryan to Glass (opening DPP with Withers)
Pendles to Dusty

Option 2 (1 trade only)
Pendles to Oliver/Murphy

    Patch · 28/07/2017 at 15:45

    Option 1 for mine, Pots

Dan · 28/07/2017 at 15:09

I'm interested in your thoughts. I have 5 trades left and 394K in the bank.
This week I was planning loading up my team by trading: Parsons -> JJK (shuffling Nank to the bench) and Rocky -> Dusty.

But, I'm also wondering if De Goey might be worth it (instead of JJK) with Pendles being out? Also, given the rumours about Dusty being sore should I hold off a week on trading Rocky?

    Patch · 28/07/2017 at 15:47

    I'd wait a week on Rocky considering this morning Fagan said he'd be let off the hook (no tagging). Parsons to JJK is a solid move as any – I'm going him over De Goey

Jim · 28/07/2017 at 15:35

Who should I bench out of Greenwood, Lynch and Nank? I'm leaning towards Nank but would appreciate your thoughts!

    Rivo · 28/07/2017 at 15:47

    Same dilemma for me Jim.

    I'm trading Nank provided Gawn plays. Have Ryder still at F1 for swing with Strnadica. Greenwood making cash still and Lynch has a higher ceiling than Nank. And with Jack out this week, Nank may struggle for points.

    Patch · 28/07/2017 at 15:47

    Nank for mine

    Finnius123 · 28/07/2017 at 17:25


Oscar · 28/07/2017 at 15:45

De goey, McLean,jjk or yeo

    SC_Kev7 · 28/07/2017 at 16:26

    Yeo or McLean

      Patch · 28/07/2017 at 18:14

      Agree. McLean a sneaky pod but Yeo will score more. Just

BrownlowBoy · 28/07/2017 at 15:55

Thoughts please.

50k and 8 trades.

Docherty, Simpson, Laird, Howe, Lloyd, Shaw, Ryan, Hibberd
Dangerfield, Selwood, Bontempelli, Merrett, Fyfe, Kennedy, Treloar, Adams, Witherden, Cousins, Brown
Gawn, Grundy, Strndica
Macrae, Yeo, Dahlhaus, Ryder, Lynch, Greenwood, Bolton, Eddy

Thoughts on Ryan to Lewis Young via Witherden and Botlon swings and Tom Lynch to Buddy Franklin?

Any other suggestions are much appreciated.

    The Ranger · 28/07/2017 at 19:21

    You need to start raising some cash fast if you're gonna make those trades count.
    I'd flick Lloyd, swing Adams back and grab a Beams/Rocky/Sloane type and then flick Ryan down to Glass.

Tommo · 28/07/2017 at 16:12

Nank or Greenwood out for Yeo? Already gone Pendles to Dusty and whoever I don't trade will by my f7 cover for Tom J Lynch. Cheers for your help

    Finnius123 · 28/07/2017 at 16:15


Aflking1 · 28/07/2017 at 16:16

Luke Parker VC? He's due for a big one

    Defying_Madness · 28/07/2017 at 16:17

    He is due for the Howe tag

    DacZawson · 28/07/2017 at 18:25

    Classic gamblers fallacy

    DeadBuried1 · 28/07/2017 at 18:59

    In the same boat as my only loophole VC option is Parker!

Don't Blush Baby · 28/07/2017 at 16:17

Would love to go Nank for JJK ,but keeping that Ruck insurance is always on my mind, I have Steph & Gawn ,

    Swans2012 · 29/07/2017 at 09:26

    Yep I'm on a nank hold for the ruck insurance, I see no value in trading him at the time of the year that we've held him all year for (insurance wise)

Joe T · 28/07/2017 at 16:17

TJ Lynch or Nank on field? Will loophole the other with Greenwood. Nank will be No 1 tall target with no Steven May and J. Riewoldt, but also would spend more time forward. Lynch could be anything between 50 and 150 i guess.

    Patch · 28/07/2017 at 18:14

    Lynch for mine

TheGreatBozza · 28/07/2017 at 16:25

Need a Pendles replacement:

T Mitch (1st doesn't have him)
Dusty (other top teams have him)

    GloryDays90 · 28/07/2017 at 16:27

    Consider M.Crouch also

    The Hoff · 28/07/2017 at 16:34

    Blakely Titch best option is titch

    Finnius123 · 28/07/2017 at 17:25

    Titch fa shore

    TheGreatBozza · 28/07/2017 at 17:45

    Thanks fellas I've gone Titch since I had $250k bank. I've got 6 trades and a top 4 spot heading in to finals. I'll play around with Nank, Shaw and Lynch next week

joshunt7 · 28/07/2017 at 16:29

Should I trade Nank to Kennedy. Wanted Ryder but i'm 20k off. If I make the trade i'll only have 2 trades left.Thoughts??

    The Hoff · 28/07/2017 at 16:33

    do it

The Hoff · 28/07/2017 at 16:33

Blakely or Kelly or others
for Rockliff

    joshunt7 · 28/07/2017 at 16:39

    Keep rocky. Mitch Robinson is coming back into the team with zorko going out which should mean that rockliff doesn't tag.

      The Hoff · 28/07/2017 at 16:40

      He needs to go ever since shoulder his been crap

        Finnius123 · 28/07/2017 at 17:24

        I agree. what is your budget?

      Joe T · 28/07/2017 at 17:26

      Mitch Robinson is out for the season isnt he?

        hedski · 28/07/2017 at 18:26

        Yep, its Nick Robertson.

        joshunt7 · 28/07/2017 at 18:28

        whoops, my bad

Stupid Coach · 28/07/2017 at 16:47

Top notch again Patch. Sitting on 5 trades. Which of the following trade options would you recommend?
1) Newman to Dusty/Sloane/Neale or Ebert vi Adams DPP – Dusty will only leave me with $10k for finals.
2) Nank to Ryder
3) doing both trades and leaving only 3 for finals.

Any thoughts/advice much appreciated.

    Patch · 28/07/2017 at 18:13

    Would go both, mate! Dusty>Sloane>Neale in order of preference

      Stupid Coach · 28/07/2017 at 18:48

      Thanks Patch.

The Guv'na · 28/07/2017 at 17:00

Afternoon community,

My options are

1) Hold Riewoldt and play both Nankervis and Lynch

2) Trade to Yeo/Heeney/McLean


    Finnius123 · 28/07/2017 at 17:24

    How many trades do you have left? 3+ probably go rooey to Heeney

      The Guv'na · 28/07/2017 at 17:32

      2 left unfortunately

        hedski · 28/07/2017 at 18:29

        Hold, Rooey could go out with a bang over the last month of the year/career.

James · 28/07/2017 at 17:11

Have 7 trades and $98k in the bank. My first trade will be Daniel Lloyd to Conor Glass, any suggestions for a second trade would be appreciated

    pieinghigh · 28/07/2017 at 17:20

    trade nans crevis out.

    Nans > De Goey or JJK

    Finnius123 · 28/07/2017 at 17:21

    I would go nank to JJK.

      James · 28/07/2017 at 17:38

      Should I be considering Yeo over JJK?

        James · 28/07/2017 at 17:47

        There's also the option of Ryder

helty · 28/07/2017 at 17:15

Hibberd or Hurley need you help guy!!!!!!!!!!

    Finnius123 · 28/07/2017 at 17:20

    Hurley will probably average a couple of more ppg for the rest of the year and is more of a POD. If budget isn't that important back him in.

    The Hoff · 28/07/2017 at 17:23


    Defying_Madness · 28/07/2017 at 17:28

    Wait to see if Hurley is not a late out then lock him in.

      helty · 28/07/2017 at 17:51

      thanks guys. trading out Newman to Hurley so cant see if he is a late out

Steve · 28/07/2017 at 17:22

Gawn VC into Danger C Thoughts

    FCAbel · 28/07/2017 at 17:50

    My thoughts exactly

Matty · 28/07/2017 at 17:25

Dusty, Titch or Zerrett?

    NickMacMan · 28/07/2017 at 18:08


    Patch · 28/07/2017 at 18:09


Rick Grimes · 28/07/2017 at 17:26

Might leave Nank the tank out there. Who knows, maybe he'll kick a bag. The way rucks are going, it's not really worth trading him as whoever I pick, Gawn, Martin, might spud it badly anyways.

    Patch · 28/07/2017 at 18:12

    Not a bad point, mate. Been a nightmare this year

Bec · 28/07/2017 at 17:34

Is Kruezer worth the extra $ in replacing Goldy? I have the cash and 6 trades. Or would I be better off with a value pick like Gawn or Martin?
Thank you, Bec

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/07/2017 at 17:49

    Worth the extra spend.
    May just help you Kruez to victory.

      Bec · 28/07/2017 at 17:56

      Thanks Trigga 🙂

John · 28/07/2017 at 17:54

Who do I trade Nank for? Have 6 trades and $168k:

Yeo (Leaves me with $87k)

JJK (Leaves me with $159k)

Ryder (Leaves me with $39k)


    Patch · 28/07/2017 at 18:12

    Yeo for mine

Leah · 28/07/2017 at 17:55

6 Trades, 81k – Thinking Parsons to Bayok or should I go SPP for Bayok.
Or should I be keeping SPP for a bit of cover. Need help for this week please?
Adams, Shaw, Hibberd (melb), Doch, Newman, Tuohy (Hibberd – Nth, Ryan)
Jelwood, Danger, JPK, Neale, Merrett, Fyfe, Bont, Greenwood (Pepper, Witherden, Cousins)
Gawn, Martin (Strnadica)
Dahl, Nank, Macrae, Buddy, Lynch, Ryder (Eddy, Parsons)

    Patch · 28/07/2017 at 18:11

    Paint the fence? Parsons down, SPP to Beams and Greenwood as cover?

      Leah · 28/07/2017 at 18:21

      Parsons down to Young on the Bubble?

Jack · 28/07/2017 at 18:04

heeney or franklin in for walters?

    Patch · 28/07/2017 at 18:10

    Gut says Buddy, head says Heeney. If you're feeling dangerous and dicey go Buddy

Ben · 28/07/2017 at 18:05

VC JPK or Titch tonight?

    Patch · 28/07/2017 at 18:10


Stuck · 28/07/2017 at 18:05

Any trade advice would be very much appreciated. $241.1k and 5 trades left

Doch, Laird, Hibberd (Mel), Adams, Lloyd, Rance (Ryan, Guthrie)
Danger, Titch, Dusty, JPK, Oliver, Bont, Jelwood, McCluggage (Witherden, Brodie, Atley)
Witts, Gawn (Cameron)
Ryder, Macrae, Franklin, Heeney, Wallis, Greenwood (Parsons, Eddy)

I'm thinking
McCluggage to Merrett and Parsons to L.Young this week and Greenwood to Yeo next week
Or should I save my trades and just go
McCluggage to Ross

TIA for any advice

Dane · 28/07/2017 at 18:07

Trade out Mummy or Greene?

    Patch · 28/07/2017 at 18:10


NickMacMan · 28/07/2017 at 18:08

Please help my boys!!!

1. Hannan to Beams (via dpp)

2. Hannan to Jelwood and Ryan to a loopholer

I have 4 trades left and 1 premo left in my mids, do i use 2 trades to get selwood and more cash or 1 for beams


    Patch · 28/07/2017 at 18:10

    As much as I love Beams as a pod, I can't go past Selwood

      NickMacMan · 28/07/2017 at 18:23

      well 2 trades and some cash get me through? (with greenwood and nank at m6 and m7)

BrownlowBoy · 28/07/2017 at 18:22

Buddy or JPK VC?

    NickMacMan · 28/07/2017 at 18:26

    JPK loves playing the hawks so id go him

TOPHAWK1 · 28/07/2017 at 18:24

Matty Priddis calls it quits. Has resigned from the AFL and West Coast today. He will play out the rest of this season. No fuss, no fanfare, just a top bloke and great team player. Enjoy retirement Pridda!!! Well played.

BrownlowBoy · 28/07/2017 at 18:28

Jake Lloyd is out.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/07/2017 at 18:28

It has begun

Jake lloyd a late out
Replaced by Dan the man Robertson

    Defying_Madness · 28/07/2017 at 18:34

    Anyone know why he is out?

      hedski · 28/07/2017 at 18:46

      They didn't specify, you in the graduate's yet defying? Is filling up.
      Looks like Witherden gets a gig, was gonna loop Lloyd with him.

        Defying_Madness · 28/07/2017 at 18:48

        Yeah I should be in the graduates. I am very much considering trading out Lloyd to Sloane and keeping Witherden at D6

          The Ranger · 28/07/2017 at 19:15

          I was tempted to do something similar but I can see Sloane getting a heavy Greenwood tag on Sunday

      Don't Blush Baby · 28/07/2017 at 19:22

      a Hip issue

      Russty_ · 28/07/2017 at 19:28

      A tight hip…nothing serious.

Finnius123 · 28/07/2017 at 18:31

Ryan or Schaz onfield for Lloyd?

    TOPHAWK1 · 28/07/2017 at 18:48

    Ryan. Can you flick Lloyd into the midfield, and then on the midfield bench?

Ben · 28/07/2017 at 18:41

Lynch or Greenwood onfield?

    TOPHAWK1 · 28/07/2017 at 18:50

    Greenwood. Put the E on Lynch as he plays earlier. If he has a big one, you may still be able to flick Greenwood to your midfield and use him there. Put a non playing forward on the field up forward to get Lynch's score.

      Ben · 28/07/2017 at 19:47

      nah my non playing player is strndica, so i can't. So even though i highly doubt buddy will stink it up, looping him instead.

BrownlowBoy · 28/07/2017 at 18:42

Any other suggestions? Gotta start using trades.

Defying_Madness · 28/07/2017 at 18:44

Anyone considering trading out Lloyd?

    TOPHAWK1 · 28/07/2017 at 18:52

    Nope. He can sit on the back or midfield bench this week. No problem.

      Defying_Madness · 28/07/2017 at 19:19

      Could become a problem if Adam is a late out

    DeadBuried1 · 28/07/2017 at 19:37

    Yes…..just sooner than I had wanted!

TOPHAWK1 · 28/07/2017 at 18:56

Thinking Titch VC and Danger C this week. Anyone else on the same wavelength? Danger plays pretty late this week so VC ing him this week is not very attractive. Only a few genuine premos to play after him. Only Bontempelli, Zerrett, Sloane, Adams or Treloar would be decent captain options. Dont trust any of them enough to go bigger than Titch.

    Russty_ · 28/07/2017 at 19:07

    Hey mate…yep doing the exact same here, safety first 🙂

      TOPHAWK1 · 28/07/2017 at 19:17

      Great minds think alike!! hehehe

      Hope we don't look like fools after tonight.

      Still, I like Titch against his old team. He might just show the Swannies what a gun player they let slip through their fingers. Titch could just play a BIG game tonight. Cheers

        Russty_ · 28/07/2017 at 19:34

        The hardest thing will be..if Titch knocks out a 130 do we take it or go with Danger?, good problem to have though.
        Good luck this weekend.

    Defying_Madness · 28/07/2017 at 19:13

    Yeah mate, going Titch into Danger also, however would go Danger into Zerret if I had a loophole option

    hedski · 28/07/2017 at 19:20

    Definitely TH, still tossing Buddy/Titch as vc, Danger is a no brainer tho.

      TOPHAWK1 · 28/07/2017 at 19:31

      Close one last week mate in the first to go Woo league. Just fell over the line after the usual slugfests between us.

      I need you to be a hero for me this week OK? Beat Alf Busters! Then I just have to deal with the Bluebaggers for a miraculous finals birth!


        hedski · 28/07/2017 at 19:40

        I'll have a dip Toppa.

          Russty_ · 28/07/2017 at 19:42

          Don't Dip….Dooooooooooo lol, good luck this week mate.

            hedski · 28/07/2017 at 20:14

            U2 Russ. Looking to be a cracker tonight

cattery · 28/07/2017 at 19:00

Sloane, beams or rocky for last mid position?!

    TOPHAWK1 · 28/07/2017 at 19:19

    Out of those 3? Seriously? Well OK, Sloane.

      hedski · 28/07/2017 at 19:40

      I'd look at Wines as a pod.

The Ranger · 28/07/2017 at 19:09

Jeez Supercoach just always gives you something to bloody whinge about doesn't it?
Lats week I had barely enough players to make a 22 and this week there's too many of the buggers playing and I can't find any decent loopholes!

    hedski · 28/07/2017 at 19:22

    Good position to be in Ranger, looks like I have Bolton as my only Emergency this week!

    Russty_ · 28/07/2017 at 19:44

    Maybe just whack the big C straight onto danger then Ranger?…Danger Ranger!

      The Ranger · 28/07/2017 at 20:26

      I went for more danger and bought Gawn in and whacked the VC on him.
      If he's a late out I'm gonna give SC the flick and go and live in a monastery.

        Russty_ · 28/07/2017 at 20:29

        Hahaha, pretty sure even Monks have internet these days mate, so you should still be able to play 🙂

Josh · 28/07/2017 at 19:15

With Lloyd and Greene out and Adams 50/50 I'm a bit unsure what to do with trades:
4 left and $8200 in the bank

Backs: Docherty, Laird, Adams, Lloyd, Shaw, Witherden- bench- Ryan, Guthrie
Mids: Danger, J Kelly, Merrett, Neale, Selwood, Fyfe, Kennedy, Bont- bench- Treloar, Bolton, Hibberd
Rucks: Martin, Gawn- bench- Strndica
Fwds: Macrae, Dahlhaus, Heeney, Yeo, Nankervis, Lynch- bench- Greene, Eddy

SCdonkey · 28/07/2017 at 19:16

Oh my! Lloyd is a late out. There goes the idea of doing loophole and swinging DPPs.

Just have enough players to filled 22. Will probably trade Pendle if there's anymore late out.

    TOPHAWK1 · 28/07/2017 at 19:23

    Hello Donks……You seem a little stressed….. I believe I am playing you this week in the Guns and Rookies league?

    I have Lloyd too. We are even stevens. Good luck this week mate!

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/07/2017 at 19:21

Gary Rohan anyone?
He is out as well.
Swans dropping like flies.

    INPieman · 28/07/2017 at 19:28

    After Gary Rohan scored that legendary -2 he took first place on piemans banned for life list

      TOPHAWK1 · 28/07/2017 at 19:33

      Gary Rohan is as durable as one of those plastic toys you win playing happy clowns at the circus.

Adsy · 28/07/2017 at 19:22

Gary Rohan back spasms, very late out tonight. Jordan Foote comes in.

Russty_ · 28/07/2017 at 19:40

How's everyone travelling regarding getting into your league Top 8 this week?

I'm in 10 leagues, guaranteed top 8 in 6 of them, 2 of them, snowball's chance in hell, and a bit iffy on the last 2 being in 7th and 8th.

    Tyruddanaut · 28/07/2017 at 19:42

    I'm in 4 leagues and am coming 1st in 2, 4 in one and 7 in one.

    Defying_Madness · 28/07/2017 at 19:43

    Currently top 4 in all my leagues, only in 5 though and none are cash leagues so don't mind too much.
    Will probably join some cash leagues next year so there is more to play for.

    Russty_ · 28/07/2017 at 19:47

    Good stuff guys, good luck this week.

      hedski · 28/07/2017 at 20:18

      Can't make top 8 in Piemans JR Community Cash league now but top 4/top 8 in my other 2 cashies, been a shit of a year.

    Choice · 28/07/2017 at 20:52

    Need a team to lose to make the 8 (I have to win though)
    The opposite team has put Stef C with Kelly VC, no Danger at all.
    Rigging it for the team to win i'm sure

    JohndJames · 28/07/2017 at 21:36

    Hi Russty,in 8 Leagues,top 4 in 4 of them,top 8 in 3,with one of them needing to win to guarantee a spot and the last one need to win and 7th or 8th place to lose.

      Russty_ · 28/07/2017 at 21:47

      7 out of 8's kickass John…hope you have a better week than I'm having so far hahah…bloody Sydney!…Mitchell seems to be going pretty good now.

        JohndJames · 28/07/2017 at 21:51

        I put the VC on Mitch 4min before the game,so a 120+ would be nice.

Tyruddanaut · 28/07/2017 at 19:42

Learning as I go.
Leaving my trades until tomorrow just in case Gawno is a late out

    Russty_ · 28/07/2017 at 19:48

    Good call mate, I had to punt Goldy this week so no choice there.

Ahmad Rubas · 28/07/2017 at 19:47

Lloyd out who to bring in ryan or scharenberg off ded bench or witherden from mid bench

Finnius123 · 28/07/2017 at 19:48

VC JPK or Buddy?


Russty_ · 28/07/2017 at 20:04

Jeez the ten million dollar man's being a bit of a dirty bastard with his old team-mates/ mates.

Defying_Madness · 28/07/2017 at 20:23

Got Hanners and Buddy on the bench with the emergency, welcome onfield Greenwood and Bolton.

Steeeve · 28/07/2017 at 20:23

Well as an owner of Buddy, Heeney, Hanners and Titch (vc) that was about as disappointing an opening quarter as possible. At least all the players I don't have put on an entertaining show. Lift boys!!!

    Russty_ · 28/07/2017 at 21:06

    This game alone will drop my prediction by 200 points…oh happy day!

    Defying_Madness · 28/07/2017 at 21:07

    I have Heeney, Titch, JPK, Hanners and Spuddy. Not looking good so far.

    Steeeve · 28/07/2017 at 21:31

    Tell you what Buddy has been bad but a free and goal and he only scored 7 SC?

      Russty_ · 28/07/2017 at 21:34

      Probably gave away another free in the mean-time…stupid prick.

Tyruddanaut · 28/07/2017 at 20:26

Making 18 on average this game. I thought I was safe this round

GloryDays90 · 28/07/2017 at 20:45

Spuddy is back tonight… and Kennedy is just as useless… :/

    Russty_ · 28/07/2017 at 20:47

    Not to mention Connor..Ass!

    Captain Risky · 28/07/2017 at 21:09

    Thankfully my opponent this week has Buddy as well..What a prick of a start.. Lloyd out and 3 on field flogs!!!

Russty_ · 28/07/2017 at 20:57

This is not an enjoyable game to watch at all for me…every F-WIT I have in Supercoach is playing like an absolute spud….Mitchell, Kennedy, Heeney, Buddy…FK all of you! Bring on the Cricket!

    INPieman · 28/07/2017 at 21:09

    Absolute spud fest tonight Rusty. Have Titch Hanners Buddy & Newman. All rubbish. Spuds everywhere

      Russty_ · 28/07/2017 at 21:32

      This is the last season I ever have buddy in my side…stupid, up himself spud!

    hedski · 28/07/2017 at 21:21

    Parks is doin good

    B T · 28/07/2017 at 22:36

    I know, I feel ya Russty.

    Feels like its been the same for every game this year.

      Russty_ · 28/07/2017 at 22:41

      Buddy's not worth the money B.T, even though he's not worth much money.

    Top Gun · 29/07/2017 at 20:01

    There won't be any cricket the way it's going. Lol

Finnius123 · 28/07/2017 at 21:44

JPK and Buddy both with 0 point quarters #boys

    Derek · 28/07/2017 at 21:45

    JPK has hammy problem

      Russty_ · 28/07/2017 at 21:48

      Yay!…another fkface I've gotta waste a trade on lol

        Defying_Madness · 28/07/2017 at 21:49

        What a year

Thomas · 28/07/2017 at 21:44

Titch 50pt quarter. Same cant be said for JPK and Buddy. Thank god i looped buddy!

The Ranger · 28/07/2017 at 21:50

He's not been SC relevant but I've been keeping an eye on young Georgie Hewitt all year and he's looking like a bloody good player in the making, Swans fans would be rapt. He just does all the small things well. Might be one to watch for a breakout year in 2018.

    Russty_ · 28/07/2017 at 21:57

    Yeah could do Ranger has played every game this year…been inconsistent, but this is the first year he's had the opportunity to play every game…could have a great year next season.

    Steeeve · 28/07/2017 at 22:11

    Like him too Ranger, hard, clean, good in front of goals, getting to a decent number of centre bounces.
    Lot of competition for midfield spots is the issue.

    B T · 28/07/2017 at 22:35

    I know mate. The swans youngsters have definitely kept them in it this year, with the older blokes down on their usual outputs.

    Heeney, Mills, Hewett, Papley, Melican, Newman. All future stars. Could throw in a few extras that I have probably missed.

Steeeve · 28/07/2017 at 22:21

Well I had four "premos" play for zero tons, wasted my VC, got my tip wrong and did in a few bucks on the punt.
On the plus side… life is meaningless anyway?

    Russty_ · 28/07/2017 at 22:23

    Yeah mate…it's all about short term entertainment…and if that doesn't work out, get wasted! lol

    B T · 28/07/2017 at 22:33

    I feel ya mate.

    Buddy, Hanners and Heeney all having poor scores, which has me already looking at another frustrating and poor supercoach week.

    hedski · 28/07/2017 at 22:46

    On the punt side Steeeve, did 2 multis, swans by 40+ first leg, bust. Hawks by1-39 bang.

    Swans2012 · 29/07/2017 at 10:07

    Feel your pain, also did all of the above

TOPHAWK1 · 28/07/2017 at 22:23

Hawthorn!!!! 4 more points in the kitty! Don't tell me.

    Russty_ · 28/07/2017 at 22:29

    Good win for your lads, I'll be looking for them to be a chance next year, can't keep a good team down for long.

    Derek · 28/07/2017 at 22:34

    That loss against the cats really hurts now

    Still an outside chance

    Richmond next week!

      Russty_ · 28/07/2017 at 22:44

      Good chance I'd say! lol

Northerner · 28/07/2017 at 22:27

Sometimes you get lucky. I agonised over one trade this week. It was JPK to Dusty. I had only 4 trades left, but full premo with 9 premo mids (Treloar as M9). I pulled the trigger. JPK scoring only 50 meant first leg of that trade has paid off much better than I'd hoped.

    Russty_ · 28/07/2017 at 22:30

    Prophetic trade…well done.

    Derek · 28/07/2017 at 22:32

    JPK might miss a week or two with that hammy

    INPieman · 28/07/2017 at 22:34

    Wow! Nice one Northerner. Hope that trade continues to work out. Balls out SuperCoach right there

    Captain Risky · 28/07/2017 at 22:54

    Well , I bought in JPK this week! ..& Newman out..

      Russty_ · 28/07/2017 at 23:13

      That's a bummer of major proportions captain..very unlucky mate.

      Northerner · 29/07/2017 at 07:09

      I had the similar story with Cripps the week he went down so I also know that style of pain.

DaRC · 28/07/2017 at 22:30

VC Buddy worked out great. LOL

Hanners had another cracker aswell, so called premo scoring 75 points every 2nd week. Everyone should jump on.

    Derek · 28/07/2017 at 22:31

    The Hawks were just too good

      INPieman · 28/07/2017 at 22:48

Great start to the week, not.

Gonna be fun.

    Russty_ · 28/07/2017 at 22:42

    293 from 4 for me…I'm thinking, it could've been worse really, considering how the first half went.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/07/2017 at 22:40

Kept Newman was gonna loop him tonight but with Lloyd a late out had to put him on the ground.
93 I'll take that. Lloyd out freed him up to play the sweeping half back role again.

Glass half full ….

    Russty_ · 28/07/2017 at 22:41

    Good stuff Trig, sometimes it's better to hold…and have some luck 🙂

    hedski · 28/07/2017 at 23:27

    Got ya in the a graders Trig, can't make the 8 from memory, hopefully can shape it!

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 29/07/2017 at 00:14

      OK. Let's dance!

    Leeds17 · 29/07/2017 at 07:47

    Looked good, thought he deserved a few more point for 2 holding the ball tackles in the last quarter, did turn it over a bit i suppose.

Wait a week on the Nank-Gawn trade?

    Northerner · 29/07/2017 at 07:15

    That's what I'm doing. If you decide to pull the trigger, wait till you check he makes it through the warm up because of his ankle. A normal ankle sprain would have seen him restrapped last week and back in in no time and have him looking close to normal. He was off for almost a full quarter last week and laboured when he did get back on and Ryder took advantage. Too risky this week for mine. I want to see one more ton from him.

Alby · 29/07/2017 at 06:49

My delemma this week is who to field out of The Nank, Lynch (Gold Coast) whom are playing in the same game, and Greenwood (Crows) only have the 1 position available. Since my players from last nights game spudded up this is a pretty do or die desicion. The communities thought would be much appreciated.

    Northerner · 29/07/2017 at 07:20

    I've got all 3, but can't get Greenwood to my forward bench. I'm fielding Lynch. He showed something last week. He was at 70odd points at 3/4 time last week and did not see it when the Dogs had that howling breeze in the last quarter. He's showing signs for mine, Gary is back and Tigers are short a few, and his ceiling much higher. Also, I'm not as down on Nank as others. He simply does not have the skill level to play in extremely wet conditions and his 50 last week I believe was an aberration. He wouldn't be the first ruckman to be unable to pick up a wet ball.

      Leeds17 · 29/07/2017 at 07:45

      Soldo definitely effects his scoring but what has been more concern has been his lack of contested & intercept marks, those are what was bumping his scores early from 70-80 to 100-110, I think they are playing Soldo simply to give Nank a break before finals.

    Qwert · 29/07/2017 at 09:33

    Lynch or Greenwood…lynch could go big but greenwoid has been consistent 85-100 most weeks. Ive gone greenwood over nank for f6

Shannon · 29/07/2017 at 07:42

Looking to trade out Nankervis and Suns Lynch for Ryder and Young from the Doggies currently in 4 position could drop as low as 8th if all went against me in a cash league and currently got 6 trades left should I make the trade or preserve them. My forward line consists of Franklin, Dal, Macrae, Wallis, Lynch, Greenwood, Nankervis, C. Brown.

    Jjbarea · 29/07/2017 at 09:07

    Make the trades!

    Qwert · 29/07/2017 at 09:31

    Go for it!

Qwert · 29/07/2017 at 09:28

Dusty in and Bont capt or sloane in and captain…vc is Danger

Qwert · 29/07/2017 at 09:30 into danger or danger vc into Bont/Sloane?? Aaaah help!!

Northerner · 29/07/2017 at 10:01

I urge all to ensure they watch the video of Pridda's press conference,which I watched this morning. I'll be showing it to my U14 side at Tuesday training this week. There's more Prima Donna attitude in many of the team than this champion of a bloke who also happens to have won a Brownlow. A display of selfless team first attitude, knowing your role,accepting it and working out how to be the best at it you can be, there is no better example. Simmo's comment that if there was an award for the player who has got the most from their natural abilities, he would be the greatest of all time. Hard to argue with that assessment.

    Pieman · 29/07/2017 at 10:07

    Selfless team attitude my ar$e. He's always been a selfish prima donna and always will be

Stupid Coach · 29/07/2017 at 12:23

Greetings community. A rough start. Regretting trading Newman instead of Lloyd for Dusty, however hoping it will pay off in the end. Thoughts on VC and C. Currently have the VC on Ward and C on Danger or should I put the VC on Danger and C on Zerrett or Yeo against the Lions. Also, I have Thomas, Mountford and Bolton on the bench. should I have any of these on the field. cheers

Iconic · 29/07/2017 at 16:18

Traded Higgins to JJK… got sick of him and of course he goes big

Top Gun · 29/07/2017 at 20:00

I hate barracking for StKilda 🙁

    Russty_ · 31/07/2017 at 02:01

    OMG, way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory…spuds!

Steeeve · 30/07/2017 at 00:21

Fielded Greenwood instead of Tom Lynch this week. Fml
