Ladies and gentleman, Jack Darling has arrived as a legitimate SuperCoach forward premium option.

Who would of thought we would ever make that statement?

Darling’s emergence in 2018 has been stunning, with some experts even likening his performances to those of the great Wayne Carey.

The West Coast spearhead’s last month has been irresistible, slamming home scores of 112, 132, 125 and finally a monster 181 on Saturday.

His current price of $561K is expensive, but if he continues to cement his status as a top six forward he will prove too difficult to ignore.

The Heroes

Jack Darling (181 SC) was in supreme form in West Coast’s demolition of Richmond on Sunday finishing with 20 kicks, 15 marks and six goals in a herculean effort. There’s a real presence and aura about the man at the moment. Apart from an ordinary 42 against Carlton in Round 5, Darling’s two other lowest scores have been 89 and 90 this season and he has hit three figures in his other six matches. He’s currently the highest averaging forward with 111 points per match.

The stunning numbers of Bulldogs revelation Jack McRae (177 SC) have been an absolute blessing for his owners. In the wet in Adelaide he produced another midfield masterclass racking up 36 possessions, 25 of them contested, 13 tackles and 10 clearances.

The knock on Swans defender Jake Lloyd (173 SC) has always been his ceiling but he completely dispelled that myth with one of the best matches of his AFL career to date. He finished with 41 possessions, 15 marks and one goal at 85% disposal efficiency.

Tom Mitchell (155 SC) did Tom Mitchell things for the Hawks on Sunday, despite their shock loss. He had it 46 times, along with 26 contested possessions and 10 clearances. Fellow inside king Patrick Cripps (152 SC) has been sensational this season after his 2017 campaign was cruelled by injury. He finished with 31 touches, 23 contested possessions, eight marks, nine tackles and 10 clearances.

Max Gawn (121 SC) continues to be the standout option in the ruck, while resurgent Lion Dayne Zorko (121 SC) is still only $515K and is coming off 164, 121 and 121 in his last three.

Other significant scores: Jake Melksham (160 SC), Aaron Hall (137 SC), Jarrod Witts (129 SC), Jarrad Waite (129 SC), Sam Powell-Pepper (128 SC), Ben Brown (128 SC), Jarrod Harbrow (127 SC),Touk Miller (127 SC), Travis Boak (125 SC),Jeremy McGovern (123 SC), Zach Tuohy (122 SC), Luke Ryan (121 SC), Jeremy Howe (121 SC), Tom Phillips (121 SC).

The Villains

The role Robbie Gray (67 SC) played on the weekend should have his owners a little concerned. With the likes of Tom Rockliff finding form and Sam Powell-Pepper back in the Power’s midfield, Gray spent more time up forward, resulting in a poor score.

In-form Hawks firebrand James Sicily (77 SC) couldn’t live up to the hype on the weekend, while Geelong guns Gary Ablett (55 SC) and Sam Menegola (57 SC) were both ordinary in Geelong’s surprise loss to Essendon.

Adam Treloar (73 SC) butchered the pill yet again with five clangers hurting his score while the old man Kade Simpson (72 SC) endured probably his worst game so far in 2018. Blues teammate Matthew Kreuzer (60 SC) remains a little underdone after coming back from injury.

A recent run of good form from Tiger Kane Lambert (64 SC) came crashing to a halt on Sunday, while Brisbane ruckman Stef Martin (79 SC) couldn’t quite get the job done for his owners.

The Redeemers

Marcus Bontempelli (120 SC) has come good for the Dogs after an indifferent start to the season. An impressive 18 of his 28 possessions were contested, and he also had nine clearances to be his side’s best midfielder along with McRae. Lance Franklin (114 SC) is slowly working back to his best form after missing four matches due to heel soreness. He finished with three snags and should further improve next week.

After missing the first five matches of the season due to injury, the form of Melbourne bookend Tom McDonald (118 SC) has been exciting to watch. Playing a forward role he finished with four goals and is averaging 106 so far in 2018. Teammate Angus Brayshaw (105 SC) also enjoyed a better week after a slow start to the season and looks to building his confidence with his second ton in three weeks.

The Prodigies

To those who held Nick Holman (122 SC), bravo. The young Sun ensured he still has some cash growth left in him with a big score over in China. Unfortunately many of his owners have jumped off after a string of mediocre scores.

Tom Doedee (91 SC) was solid as a rock for Adelaide on Friday night in the wet and should remain your last defensive rookie to be upgraded. Hawks defender David Mirra (89 SC) was excellent for his side on Sunday, while Bayley Fritsch (87 SC) has been equally as impressive since breaking back into Melbourne’s side.

Melbourne big man Tim Smith (91 SC) emerged for his first match of 2018 with a decent outing. He played a forward role and also provided a chop out for big Maxy in the ruck. He’s a 123K forward, so it might be worth jumping on next week if he produces another good score.

Collingwood forward Jaidyn Stephenson (81 SC) continues to provide his owners with decent output while Swan Ben Ronke (71 SC) produced a solid score to back up his 122 the previous week.

On the bubble: Ed Phillips (49 SC), Tom McCartin (41 SC), Isaac Cumming (19 SC).

First game for 2018: Tim Smith (91 SC), Jordan Ridley (76 SC), Bailey Rice (55 SC), Jacob Heron (54 SC), Mitch Lewis (39 SC), Dylan Clarke (34 SC), Patrick Kerr (23 SC).

Other rookie scores: Hunter Clarke (82 SC),Oscar McInerny (65 SC),Willie Rioli (64 SC), Tom Cole (62 SC), Jeremy Finlayson (62 SC), Matt Guelfi (61 SC), Myles Polholke (61 SC),Charlie Spargo (60 SC), Zac Giles-Langdon (59 SC), Jordan Gallucci (57 SC), Ed Richards (57 SC), Bailey Banfield (56 SC), Sam Murray (56 SC), Jack Henry (56 SC), Cam Rayner (55 SC), Harry McKay (54 SC), Jake Waterman (52 SC), Paddy Dowe (51 SC), Lachlan Murphy (51 SC),Flynn Appleby (51 SC), Adam Cerra (49 SC), Andrew Brayshaw (49 SC), Tim Kelly (48 SC), Zac Bailey (47 SC), Nic Coffield (47 SC),Matt Eagles (46 SC), Billy Gowers (45 SC), Darcy Fogarty (45 SC), Lachie Keefe (42 SC), Brad Scheer (39 SC), James Worpel (32 SC), Brayden Crossley (30 SC), Lochie O’Brien (30 SC), Jarrod Garlett (27 SC), Mitch Crowden (21 SC), Cam O’Shea (18 SC), Charlie Ballard (12 SC).

The Damned

Owners of Sam Jacobs (47 SC) need to jump off now. It’s been a struggle for poor old Sauce, ever since the SuperCoach ruck rules changed to favour hit outs to advantage.

It’s almost a dead heat between Michael Hibberd (48 SC) and Jack Billings (57 SC) for the worst premium recruit of the season. The pair have both been nothing short of horrific. Billings just isn’t finding enough of the footy and is clearly down on confidence, while Hibberd’s role appears to have been hi-jacked by the likes of Lewis, Vince and co meaning he is getting much less of the pill.

Dusty $492,700 b.e. 131 ave is 85 to 87 over the last 3-5 games. If he scores his ave this week he'll drop another 20k.
Is it time to swap Cogs or Kelly to Dusty?
Or should those lucky enough to not have him keep not having him as a POD?

I didn't thank the author of this article because I have no Idea who provided it

Cogs has been very ordinary for the last 5-weeks Ahmad. a 5-round ave of 92 doesn't identify him as a potential keeper to me. He looks stressed and sore I wont be suprised to see him have a couple of weeks off at the earliest opportunity

Hi Bob,

I am punting Kelly this week for Dusty. Kelly with a BE of 120 is in Danger of losing serious cash. A BE of 131 for Dusty is highish, but for an extra 60K you can switch a rookie to a brownlow medallist. And knowing Dusty, he might just chomp his BE this week. Don't be surprised that the same switch next week will cost you $90K+. For me it is a done deal.

Cheers mate.

Henry-T.Smith and Hibberd-Lloyd this week, could go darling but the Lloyd pick allows me to trade Doedee straight to Jonas/Boak next week who are both great Port PODS who will help me through the byes and (touch wood) provide premo output throughout the year.
Also thinking about Kelly-Rockliff but will re assess after the cats v blues game. Should i stick with my plan or trade in darling and paint the fence again next week (ridley looks decent) to get in jonas/boak (wont be able to get rockliff, so will hold kelly)?

Tyruddanaut
Guest
Tyruddanaut

Don’t jump on Smith. He scored 90 as a forward in an 100 point win whilst scoring 150ish points as a team. Don’t bring players in just because they are PODs. I brought in Zorko, Lobb, Savage, Kreuzer,

BlueBaggerJosh

boak and jonas have been consistent all year unlike all of the players you mentioned above. Agree with your T.Smith statement but dont have any other option really, already have phillips

Didn’t have many heroes or villains this week. Had a lot of scores 80-120 including the rookies. Still came up with a below par score of 2204 and won 9/10 league games.

Henry’s 115 is out of his formula. Goodbye, mate.
Murray doesn’t seem to be scoring the same he was at the start of the year. Goodbye also.

Franklin is due a big game against a shocking team. Welcome my team.
Phillips is the only good rookie this week. 117,300 and scoring more than his break even. *coughs* Cummings *coughs*

JohnDJ59

Happy to say I don't have any of the Villains and traded out Billings in round 4 and Hibbo round 6. Bont is looking the real deal this year and could be my last upgrade in the mids.

When will people learn? How about an an updated article on 'Blacklisted Supercoach Players'.
WARNING – select the following players at your own risk, these players may/will cause undue stress, hair loss, insanity, anxiety, depression and many other unwanted conditions.

Rockliff are people serious?
Not worth the headache, guys like him and Wingard, Hall, Shaw, Ablett (injuries) etc should be blacklisted forever – they are who they are. How did Deledio work out?

Mate Kelly down to rockcliff is looking the goods for me I reckon Kelly will just about hit his break even vsing Carlton can them down/upgrade him to rocky pocket the 50k and watch rocky rise another 100k odd it’s a tantalising move. A lot of risk attached but looking at my money situation I might just go it to reach full premo that little bit quicker

Swans2012

Yeah I know, but there is something about rocky that draws me in, and at 370 odd k I'm on, can't help it

SC_Sixty6

SC_Sixty6

Rocky played 20 games last year. Despite his bad SC output due to being a tagger for strange reasons it doesn't mean you should disregard him as an option. I expect him to come home real strong. Recent years his late charge on back half of season isn't to be ignored.

Huge ceiling. Plus being an M9 who cares if he gets injured…..

And if it goes bad he is 375k. Not much above fattened up rookie price, not 550k sitting on your bench

Guest

My midfield is finished and it does not have Macrae but that's alright for now.
Danger, Titch, Dusty, Fyfe, Cripps, Oliver, Crouch and Coniglio.
The exact top 8 I wanted from the start except Cogs instead of Josh Kelly who is MIA. To achieve that before the byes is all you can ask for, and hope they perform.

Now to sort out the rest of my team…

Sam_01
Guest
Sam_01

Solid midfield you got there, similar to mine but I have treloar for crouch! I’ll be looking at Tom mitchel after his bye to complete mine, pretty sure we have all missed the boat on McRae and can watch our rank disappear because of it haha

Steeeve
Guest
Steeeve

Macrae is on a run for the ages but history shows this kind of form cannot be maintained. I'm far happier saving $200k and bringing in Dusty.

KingWinter7
Guest
KingWinter7

Exact same midfield as mine except Cripps who's my next mid upgrade target after his bye

What are you doing with Coniglio, I picked him at the start of the year as a stepping stone to Kelly but started off with premium output and thought he was a keeper. Last 3 weeks haven't been as flash. Might save him to the very last upgrade of my team if I've got the trades

Steeeve
Guest
Steeeve

Same plan here. Kelly back in will only help him. If we need to step off someone averaging better will be cheap at the time, guaranteed.

TOPHAWK1

Hi Community, Tom Rockliff……….YES, "Rocky"………Can he be the "go to guy" during the byes? He burnt me to a crisp in recent years. One season (2015 from memory) I started him, he got injured, traded him out, came back, traded him back in, and then got injured yet again for me to trade him out for the last time. My season was farked up after that. So why I am I thinking about Rocky? Because he is a bloody gun when fit! At $373K, I am seriously thinking of bringing him in after round 10. He is producing tonnes again… Read more »

Sam_01
Guest
Sam_01

Agree hawk all aboard the burn express!!! In all honesty rocky when fit is a better mid than gray and it’s just better for port having gray forward because he is a gun up there, just not always for SuperCoach. Does beg the question though is Robbie going to be a viable trade in target now? Will throw out shockers and big ones if he remains there, leaning to a no from me.

TOPHAWK1
Guest
TOPHAWK1

I am not touching Robbie Gray from a SC perspective now. He is a gun in the midfield, but he is not a key forward type like Jack Darling. If Rocky can get me through the byes unscathed (3 bloody rounds, that's all) he would have done his job generating me SC points and made good cash at the same time.

His risk is worth it IMO.

KingWinter7
Guest
KingWinter7

Rocky is worth the risk at that price cause providing he stays fit can still be a potential M9 if his scores aren't premium output

HumanBob
Guest

I've already put the trade in the spreadsheet TopHawk, Former BossBoar at the points trough for under 400k who covers all byes. Not getting him in these circumstances is a bit like giving ladyluck a smack in the mouth and will surely burn

Oliver the same, macrae gr8 start but can he keep it up? Anyway went dusty – the rest is history. Worked out that one decision has cost me over 300 points which would put me top 100 infact top 70.

This week Mcrae is VC no matter what!!!

Hear hear Trigga! Gotta stay happy. You can still make top 100 without Macrae or even win this caper.

Pre round 1 I took Billings over Greene, not sure if it’s a win since I’ve been dumb enough to hold Billings, whereas I would’ve ditched Greene long ago.

Anyway I’ll be taking the punt on Rocky. Not having Macrae means I’ll need to take a risk and go for some value plays. If If rocky pumps out 100s through the byes he’s done his job and is a solid M9.

100% he is the goat burnman. Looking back now I wish I dumped him earlier. Another trade I’ve regretted is not going Walters > Macrae at 600k. I was looking to conserve trades!! The smart play was to be aggressive and trade Walters back sub 400k.

Here’s hoping saving our trades works out for us in the long run Rocksta

I'm interested to know who people are looking to have as their top 6 def and top 8 mids. I'm looking to have def: Laird, Yeo, Lloyd, Simmo, Hurley, Ryan. Mids: Titch, Fyfe, Danger, Oliver, Dusty, Bont, Cogs, ?. This is not who we think will be the top players, just who we think we will end up with.

Defying_Madness
Guest
Defying_Madness

Def: Laird, Yeo, Simpson, Sicily, Hurley, Ryan

Midfield: danger, dusty, Titch, Fyfe, Merrett, Coniglio, Cripps, Oliver

Not sure if Coniglio will be a keeper though at this point in time. Could move Sicily forward as well and get another defender but I think he is better down back for now, will depend on who drops in price.

Morzaaa
Guest

My back 6 will be identical to yours wow hahaha! Turns out I wasnt the only one who started Ryan.

My mids should end up being: Macrae, Danger, Titch, Dusty, Merrett, Cripps, Duncan and Coniglio.

Same as you, not sure if Cogs will finish in my team. I will reassess how he is going and how many trades I have left after i get to full premo. Same with Duncan as well, but been reasonably happy with him so far.

redherringfc
Guest
redherringfc

My backs will be the same, but I’ll probably hang on to Savage so won’t be getting Lloyd or Simpson. I might end up with Sicily back there, ruling both out.

First 6 mids are the same, but Merrett and J Kelly instead of Bont and Coniglio. Will have an un-injured Rockliff at m9 for loopholing.

Sam_01

Def: laird Hurley yeo simmo (sicily/fwd) d6 toss up Webster howe Lloyd. I will finnish with Hurley yeo laird simmo howe and savage
Mids: danger titch Fyfe Martin Oliver cripps treloar coggs will be my finishing mids. Missing titch at the moment.
Will be happy with thOes finishing lines may luxury trade out cogs and savage later if trades allow although I don’t think they will.

Kelly to Danger just. Finlayson against the Bombers at home could have a decent game

Do you have Tom McDonald?

Why do you think he cant do that. If opposition put a tag on him he heads further up the ground and is more in the play. If an opposition wants to put all the effort into them do they just leave Hogan to do what ever he wants. While they are both there and fit and getting good supply and help from team mates they will score big. If he loses key team mates to injury that can change but that's the same for anyone. At present a very safe bet and his break even says get him now… Read more »

CRIPPS OR DANGER?! HALP

Danger is a must at his current price.
Every year people start without certain premos and just hope they will pick them up cheap. Then when they are available for cheap people worry about their form. You can't have it both ways. Jump on.

Averages 5 points less than Cripps and has another gear to give? Or simply when Dangerwoodlett is present as a combo not all three can pump out 120+ each week…..
Or do i go someone like an oliver?

danger is at his lowest while MacRae is about 150k more expensive and counting

B. Fritsch FWD $338,100 N. Coffield DEFMID $250,100 (Out)

T. McDonald DEFFWD $500,200 E. Phillips MID $123,900 (in)

Do not trade out Fritsch when he's gone 87+ in 3/4 – seems like a total point-chasing mission. McDonald has beat up some bad teams recently, wait til he proves himself against real competition

Plenty of upside still on Fritsch. Can you use another player?

I predict Rocky to go upto 17% ownership before the byes. Biggest move being next week. No brainer really. Basically straight swap.

Of course this is all speculation till the teams drop on Thursday. While Finlayson and Henry are also… Read more »

downgrade Naughton and then upgrade doedee or Murray

for backs you can do: howe, McDonald, Lloyd, Webster, ETC

for forwards (through Keeffe swing) you can do: darling, gray, Westhoff, boak, ETC

could go for some POD's if you want though

hope this helped
