It’s TIME, community, we’ve begun rolling out our Rate My Team threads across the site and now we want to see yours! It’s been a long preseason, with a lot of confusion, a lot of tribulation about the ruck line, the back line, the new rules and of course… the dreaded forward line.

So spill forth your teams in all their glory! Who have you locked in? Who are you still tearing your hair out over? Who’s your pick to take season 2019 by storm?

Categories: Supercoach


TommyC99 · 17/03/2019 at 19:46

Hey community, 25k left over. Thoughts appreciated! I would love Macrae and he will be tough to get in later in the season, but just can't squeeze him in atm. Also not sold on Neale after his overhandballing in JLT 2

Def: Hurn, Crisp, Williams, Collins, Scrimshaw, Clark (Burgess, hore)
Mid: Cripps, Oliver, Neale, Dusty, M Crouch, Walsh, Butters, Constable (Drew, Scott, Atkins)
Ruc: Grundy, Gawn (Sweet)
Fwd: Danger, Heeney, Mundy, Moore, Setterfield, Petrucelle (Balta*, Parker

    SC god · 17/03/2019 at 19:53

    Solid team personally wouldn’t go crisp and maybe consider Dunkley instead of Mundy?

    CJ47 · 17/03/2019 at 20:23

    Fairly similar team to mine. I squeezed in Macrae over Oliver somehow lol
    Forward line exactly the same (for now atleast) other than Mundy for Mitch Robinson

    Looking for numbers in 1 of my leagues: 310708

      bremobademo · 21/03/2019 at 19:33

      Rookie league lol 339833

    Northerner · 17/03/2019 at 21:11

    Dimma said today he’s not playing Balta with Lynch and Reiwoldt.

    NoLanguage96 · 17/03/2019 at 21:27

    Same M1-5 I've gone Libba instead of Walsh. Really like the Crisp pick but I would go Kelly or Greene over Mundy personally

      TommyC99 · 18/03/2019 at 01:33

      Yeah I was keen on Mundy early but starting to go a little cold. Kelly does look the goods but got an eye on bye structure and having 3 with the same bye on the same line is an issue for me

        JEL · 18/03/2019 at 11:22

        So long as you have 18, it doesn't matter if there are multiple on one line for the byes.

Feedback would be appreciated. $159,700 in bank.

Def: Lloyd, Williams, Smith, Scrimshaw, Clark, Duursma (Watson, Hore)

Fwd: Danger, Heeney, Kelly, Greene, Vandenberg, Setterfield (Petrucelle, Parker)

    Boris_Baconbeer · 17/03/2019 at 20:54

    Wow you don't mind risk. prolly run out of trades in the end I reckon.

    nankthetank · 17/03/2019 at 21:05

    Mid needs to be changed, I love a mid pricer as much as the next guy but you can't only start 2 premos in the midfield

    Tyruddanaut · 17/03/2019 at 21:43

    Too many midpricers!

    About 5-6 is the max you should have, but you have 8-11, depending on what you class Walsh, Cousins and Dusty as.
    Maybe downgrade Vandenberg, who is completely unproven, to Atkins, Gibbons etc. with rearrangements. Then upgrade Rocky, Sheed or Libba to a premium. Make sure you have the players who you think will do the best in their positions and not just the ones that present value.

    Bossarello14 · 17/03/2019 at 21:44

    Vanderberg is an error.
    Can only take 2of4 out of Rocky, Libba, bCrouch & Sheed to limit risk exposure-grab others if a premo flunks in 1st two weeks
    Consider Burgess over Watson

    bremobademo · 21/03/2019 at 19:34

    Not sure about Greene.. last time i had him was 2017
    Join my league 339833

Krups · 17/03/2019 at 20:24

In my view, way to much risk in the midfield mate.

    Stretch Marks · 17/03/2019 at 21:39

    I have the same fwd line. F3 is the only part of my team I’m worried about.

    Bossarello14 · 17/03/2019 at 21:47

    Switch cousins for a genuine rookie, then use the cash to get a 4th def premo

    Patch · 18/03/2019 at 12:02

    Double Crouch! Solid mate, not risking much with rookies onfield, I like it.

    Super_Crouch · 20/03/2019 at 10:52

    My only consideration is that with 6k in the kitty, you’re incredibly reliant on perfect 1 up/1 down trades

Engo · 17/03/2019 at 20:27

Would appreciate your feedback community.

Def: Laird, Whitfield, Williams, Smith, Scrimshaw, Clark (Duursma, Hore)

    Bossarello14 · 17/03/2019 at 22:01

    Consider switching Walsh and Butters for cheap rookies available, then use the cash to upgrade bCouch to a genuine premo mid

      Brn · 18/03/2019 at 09:23

      Walsh and butters are guns. Wish i could clone them

    Consider switching Walsh and Butters for cheap rookies Then use cash to upgrade Collins to B Smith

      Patch · 18/03/2019 at 12:03

      I wouldn't be dropping Butters in a hurry, he looks like a must-have

    Patch · 18/03/2019 at 12:04

    Not sure on Witherden at all mate, but aside from that and Tobias Greene, who I don't like but is admittedly value, I can't fault it. How much cash do you have left? Are you able to upgrade Witherden?

Lochie · 17/03/2019 at 20:33

Making a few changes here and there everyday but currently:

Def: Sicily, Crisp, Williams, Smith, Scrimshaw, Clark. (Duursma, Hore)

Mids: Macrae, Cripps, Oliver, Coniglio, B. Crouch, Cousins, Walsh, Butters. (Constable, Scott, Gibbons)

Rucks: Grundy, Goldstein. (Bines)

    Bossarello14 · 17/03/2019 at 22:04

    Not sold on cousins but the rest looks solid mate 👍

    oldmategav · 18/03/2019 at 18:13

    Id take kelly and laird over Sicily and Smith but the rest looks good!

      bremobademo · 21/03/2019 at 19:37

      What about Simpson? Already got Laird

gghsamazingrace · 17/03/2019 at 20:34

F: Dangerfield, Heeney, T. Kelly, Setterfield, Drew, Parker + Burgess, Petruccelle

$108,900 left.

    Tyruddanaut · 17/03/2019 at 21:44

    Probably just an upgrade of one of the midpricers, using your extra money, but otherwise it's looking good.

      Patch · 18/03/2019 at 12:38

      Tend to agree, I reckon there's room for only one of Brad Crouch or Libba in the midfield

    Crouch_Surfing · 20/03/2019 at 10:54

    Liking that you’ve got a fair chunk of change left over, but I reckon it would be worth spending an extra 50-60k to upgrade one of the mid pricers

Alferton · 17/03/2019 at 20:38

Hi community. Would love feedback on my team.

Def: Lloyd, Whitfield, Williams, Smith, Collins, Clarke.
( Durrsma, Burgesses).

Mid: Cripps, Oliver, Martin, M. Crouch, Rocky, Libba, Walsh, Butters. ( Constable, Hind, Gibbons).

Rucks: Grundy, Goldy ( Bines).

Fwds: Danger, Heeney, Greene, Moore, Setterfield, Drew. (Petrucelle, Parker).

$68,300 in the bank. Thank you.

    Bossarello14 · 17/03/2019 at 22:13

    Little too much risk exposure with Whitfield (uncertainty around role change), Greene, Rocky and Libba in same team.
    Also gotta think long and hard about not starting with Gawn!

Jono · 17/03/2019 at 20:39

My side is as follows …. any changes would be appreciated… I have 17.5k in the bank

Laird,Whitfield, Hurn,Smith,Collins and Clark. (Hore and Watson)

Macrae,Fyfe,Kelly,Martin,M.Crouch, Walsh,Butters and Atkins. (Scott,Wicks and Gibbons)

Grundy and Goldy (Bines)

Drew,Parker. (Balta and Wilkinson

Cheers Jono

    Bossarello14 · 17/03/2019 at 22:18

    U need Gawn!
    Look for cheaper rookies than Walsh and Butters to achieve this.
    Duursma better option than Collins
    Petruccelle better option than Balta

      Locked and Loaded · 18/03/2019 at 12:55

      Bro post above you say that that team must consider starting without Gawn then the team reveal right under that you say he needs Gawn lol which one is it mate??

      Locked and Loaded · 18/03/2019 at 12:56

      Lol my bad I read that wrong apologies… just hear so many contradicting pieces of advice

    Patch · 18/03/2019 at 12:40

    DARLING! YES! Someone's picked him! I really rate that forward line, which is a tough thing to achieve this year. I reckon the lack of Cripps and Oliver/Neale might hurt, would you consider downgrading Walsh to Constable to upgrade one of Fyfe or Kelly?

      Jono · 18/03/2019 at 13:22

      Sorry that isn't meant to say Kelly there it's suppossed to say Conigilio!!

    bremobademo · 21/03/2019 at 19:38

    Oliver over Fyfe
    Coniglio over Martin

Dallas Byars · 17/03/2019 at 20:49

$15,900 in the kitty remaining.

    Bossarello14 · 17/03/2019 at 22:20

    U need Gawn
    Too many mid pricers in midfield
    Balta a no for me

Xman · 17/03/2019 at 20:54


-both have same bye round…

    Northerner · 17/03/2019 at 21:14

    Both good. Crouch more consistent. Dusty has high and low patches. I feel Dusty more likely to be able to grab cheaper than Crouch over the season

    Stretch Marks · 17/03/2019 at 21:44

    I’ve gone Merrett, who I am rating just ahead if M Crouch and just ahead of Martin

    Bossarello14 · 17/03/2019 at 22:21

    Dusty struggled with mental health last year, explained a lot for me. Got the feeling he’s about to tear the comp a new one as per 2017.

    COREYSC · 18/03/2019 at 10:19

    On Consistency I would take M.Crouch

    Patch · 18/03/2019 at 12:42

    I'll tell you in three weeks 😛

    I'm going Crouch at the moment but as Bossa said, Dusty's admission this week he's been struggling (which is a huge thing to admit to in the public sphere and we wish him all the best) is a big part of 2018's dip in scores

    Crouch_Surfing · 20/03/2019 at 10:56

    I’ve gone M.Crouch – but it’s always hard to keep out Dusty with Carlton as game one – he always seems to go big in those ones!

    bremobademo · 21/03/2019 at 19:39

    Bossarello14 · 17/03/2019 at 23:20

    I reckon expensive rookies are leaving u a lil underdone down back (Collins) and up forward (Dahlhaus)

      Russty_ · 17/03/2019 at 23:25

      Collins isn't a rookie, and agree on Dahlhaus, better options there.
      Wouldn't trust Balta would get a game for long if at all Damo.
      And Walsh is an expensive rookie worth keeping Damo, maybe Butters too..maybe ditch Hately for Gibbons.

Vin · 17/03/2019 at 20:56

Hello everyone,
Would really appreciate help – this below is only what’s required to be sorted to complete my team:

Option 1 – Whitfield (D1) , B. Crouch (M6) & T.Green (F3) OR
Option 2 – Lloyd (D1) , Walsh (M6) & J.Dunkley (F3)

Thanks very much!!

    Northerner · 17/03/2019 at 21:15

    Second. More guns and rookies which is the golden rule in this game.

    Bossarello14 · 17/03/2019 at 22:23

    2nd for sure, more potent

    Patch · 18/03/2019 at 12:42

    The one without Toby Greene in it please

      Vin · 18/03/2019 at 13:05

      Thanks very much guys!!

Eric_the_Red · 17/03/2019 at 21:00

Aiming for a POD defence. Thoughts on the following?

Option 1
Hurn and Crisp

Option 2
Simpson and Savage

Option 3
Any of the above and Williams (not quite so POD)

    Northerner · 17/03/2019 at 21:16

    Hurn and Williams by the length of the straight. Whitfield??

    Tyruddanaut · 17/03/2019 at 21:45

    Hurn and Williams I'm thinking. Crisp could be sneaky, but way too much risk. At least with Williams you know he will maintain value

    Bossarello14 · 17/03/2019 at 22:25

    Option 1 will be fairly unique and is still potent. Crisp just needs a lil more consistency but I’d back him for that this year

    bremobademo · 21/03/2019 at 19:41

    Simpson, Laird, Crisp
    Rest rookies for Defence
    (Collins, Hore, Clark Scrim)

Nathan Mancusi · 17/03/2019 at 21:00

Hey Guys, going for League Win here.

$274k in bank

F: Dangerfield, Smith, Heeney, Setterfield, Drew, Petruccelle (Balta, Parker)

Thanks in advance!

    Bossarello14 · 17/03/2019 at 22:29

    I’d change crisp & mills to Sicily & Laird
    Taranto bCrouch and Libba is mid price madness
    Take cheaper mid rookies and use cash to upgrade those mid-priced mids
    Brave/Silly to start without Grundy
    Switch Balta for another rookie

    Patch · 18/03/2019 at 12:44


    I'm thinking you might need a few more guns in the midfield – I'd spend the cash and part ways with one of Libba, Brad Crouch or Taranto and turn them into a Macrae or Cripps. I know it robs the team of a bit of PODness, but I worry you'll just struggle score-wise without them. I'd rather be starting keepers in the midfield if I can

    Crouch_Surfing · 20/03/2019 at 10:57

    Huge amount left in the bank! I’d be concerned carrying Taranto, Crouch and Libba… maybe worth upgrading one of them now, rather than burning a trade once we get into the real stuff

Zach · 17/03/2019 at 21:15

Looking for feedback. Playing for overall.

Lloyd Laird Smit
Scrimshaw Clark Burgess

Macrae Cripps Oliver Neale
Dusty Walsh Constable Hind

Grundy Gawn

Danger Smith Heeney
Setterfield Drew Parker


    NoLanguage96 · 17/03/2019 at 21:23

    I'd trade Devon for Kelly or Dunkley up fwd

    Bossarello14 · 17/03/2019 at 22:33

    U can do better than Hind
    Neale handballs too much for mine, maybe grab a cheaper option to enable u to get Simpson or Sicily in def

    Holty01 · 18/03/2019 at 03:56

    Like it Zach. You have done well to fit all this in to the salary cap. Neale is a gun. Averaged 110 last 3 years being predominantly handball friendly. He wins the contested ball so doesn’t matter if he handballs a lot imo.
    My only worry would be the forward line. Not a lot of rookies this year shouting out pick me so having 3 on field might cause some headaches. Agree with Boss on Hind. Don’t start him onfield

    bremobademo · 21/03/2019 at 19:48

    Kelly over smith
    Coniglio over Martin
    Crisp over Lloyd
    Simpson over Smith
    Heeney over Neale
    Butters over Constable or sit Constable on the bench
    Not sure about Hind but you should consider Cousins or Setterfield as starters
    Goldstein over Gawn (save some cash) or sacrifice Grundy for Goldstein and Gawn (pre-season not that convincing)

    This is just my judgement

nankthetank · 17/03/2019 at 21:15

G'day community,
If you had to pick, would you go Macrae and Whitfield or Neale and Lloyd?

    Sharkmove_King · 17/03/2019 at 21:23

    Macrae and Whitfield quite easily

    Holty01 · 18/03/2019 at 07:34

    all Keepers. Macrae however is the only one you would happily have the C on week in week out.

    Nice_Person · 18/03/2019 at 08:19

    Neale will go another level, macrea is a beast. Try fit them both in

    Lloyd probably a touch overpriced, and whitfeild can drop the odd 60 both could be great early upgrades

    bremobademo · 21/03/2019 at 19:51

    Macrae and Neale if i had to from the 4.
    Heeney and Coniglio is a must for me

derek · 17/03/2019 at 21:20


ive set up a new division.

Div 5 Code: 142422

We still have too many in Div 1 and Div 3. Can a few people move across to Div 5

I'll have to boot a few out in a couple of days to even the divisions

remember it is a Group, not a league.

    nankthetank · 17/03/2019 at 21:24

    You sure that's the right code derek?

      derek · 17/03/2019 at 21:52

      it is a GROUP code, not a league

      i want to limit it to 20

M – Cripps, Oliver, Neale, Dusty, M Crouch, Libba, Butters, Scott (Bewley, Atkins, Gibbons)
R – Gawn, Goldy (Sweet)
F – Danger, Heeney, Greene, McCarthy/Moore, Setterfield, Drew (Burgess, Parker)

$23k left

Sweet as rolling donut. Salem as a POD down back and Greene and McCarthy for value up front, could swap McCarthy for Moore though. Swapped Grundy for Gawn yday and still torn between Oliver and Brayshaw but can't bring myself to pick both. Is it worth saving $100k or do I just leave Clarry in there and throw away the key?

Also considering Short instead of Salem but Salem's last month last year looked really promising (104 ave).

    Stretch Marks · 17/03/2019 at 21:55

    I like the team a lot. Not convinced about Dusty

      NoLanguage96 · 17/03/2019 at 22:20

      Thanks mate, I think Lynch in the F50 and the new rules will suit Martin. Time will tell!

      Bossarello14 · 17/03/2019 at 22:36

      Read today Dusty struggled with depression and anxiety last year, doing great now. Could 2017 Dusty be back when the real stuff starts? I say yes.

        Russty_ · 17/03/2019 at 22:43

        Maybe Boss, I'm not convinced, I've been through the same and it makes one lose confidence, motivation and ability to make decisions, I hope he's back to his best for anyone who has him but those thoughts don't just go away easily.

    Russty_ · 17/03/2019 at 22:37

    Stick with Salem if you like him mate, could go Dusty to Brayshaw?…wouldn't touch McCarthy with a bargepole, most of his 7 seasons have been wrecked by injuries, Moore's solid compared to him.
    I reckon if you're gonna have Moore, stick Burgess up the other end.

      NoLanguage96 · 17/03/2019 at 22:52

      Cheers Russty, which rookie takes Burgess' place up fwd?

      Could put Burgess down back for Clark and then replace him with Petrucelle or Balta up fwd but not sure on either of them…

        Russty_ · 17/03/2019 at 23:02

        Petrucelle mate, Balta might not see a game.

    JohnDJ59 · 17/03/2019 at 22:51

    I don't usually like to have more than one player from a team on each line, so I understand your dilemma, but I myself have gone against my bias and picked both Oliver and Brayshaw.

      Russty_ · 17/03/2019 at 23:37

      That's the way Johnny…back the home team mate, Dees for flag this year.

      NoLanguage96 · 18/03/2019 at 14:57

      Its tearing me up inside. Its Dusty V Brayshaw

Mttw · 17/03/2019 at 21:23

Would love some feedback lads.

Def: Lloyd, Hurn, Williams, B Smith, Ridley, Clark (Duursma, Hore)

Mid: Cripps, Oliver, Coniglio, M Crouch, B Crouch, Cousins, Walsh, Butters (Constable, B Scott, Atkins)

Ruc: Gawn, Goldy (Sweet)

Fwd: Danger, Heeney, Billings, Moore, Setterfield, Drew (Parker, Petrucelle)

Unsure about Ridley v Scrimshaw. I don’t like Billings but I feel like the punt on Greene at f3 is too big. Would love to squeeze Grundy in.

    Bossarello14 · 17/03/2019 at 22:41

    BCouch, Cousins, Ridley, Walsh and Butters aren’t gun/rookie strategy and therefore not an elite team imho
    No Grundy? C’mon man!
    Greene is a risk but with huge upside/ceiling – he just needs to last the first 8 weeks without injury or belting someone. I’m scarred by Billing’s from last year. No, no and NO!

    Russty_ · 17/03/2019 at 22:48

    You could dump Lloyd for Collins and get Grundy and a decent forward other than spud Billings in a spud side.
    Collins will play every week and will probably end up doing good things once he starts owning his job description.
    He'll get plenty of chances at it at the mould coast 🙂
    Greene said he's fine mate, and he's teaching himself to be less of a flog and not go studs up marking, I'm trusting Toby will be a good starter.

    bremobademo · 21/03/2019 at 19:55

    Why is Lloyd so common over Crisp and Simpson? And why is Hurn so common over Laird?

    magic mullet · 17/03/2019 at 21:43

    yeah like it, love the PODS and the crouch duo, my only concern is Fyfe if he isn't healthy id go Oliver instead but if he is who knows

      Russty_ · 17/03/2019 at 22:53

      Fyfe's declared himself 100% with his elbow, he's in my side Neale out.

    Bossarello14 · 17/03/2019 at 22:46

    Collins too expensive as a rookie for mine, hore a better option
    Risk exposure a bit high with Hanley, bCrouch and Greene in the one team, consider losing Hanley at least.
    Not sure about the expensive mid rookies, will cheaper ones score as well? – probably
    Darling may be inconsistent, look for a midcwith fwd eligibility

      Russty_ · 17/03/2019 at 22:57

      Collins isn't a rookie, he's played 14 games, and he's ready to go in a side that will have the ball down back plenty.
      But yeah I'd get Hore in for Burgess, and get rid of Hanley, that's just asking for trouble, Maybe consider Ridley for Hanley, Foxy?

Tyruddanaut · 17/03/2019 at 21:38

Alright, community, we only have 4 more sleeps until season proper and my team is not finished yet. I want every last brutal insult about my structure, choice of players, life choices and supercoach potential!

Lloyd, Laird, Hurn, Smith, Scrimshaw Clark (Duursma, Hore)
Macrae, Cripps, Oliver, J Selwood, Brayshaw ($0.1k off upgrading to Crouch), Walsh, Butters, Constable, (Scott, Atkins, Gibbons)
Grundy, Peirce (Clarke)
Dangerfield, Heeney, Walters, moore, Setterfield, Drew (Petrucelle, Parker)

Very guns n rookies inspired, with 5 midpricers, 1 of which I am considering an expensive rookie (Pierce) and the other three I am expecting to go top 10 in their respective positions (Brayshaw, Smith, Walters). Moore is mo(o)re of a point generation tool that I could grab with my extra money.
Most players, Qith the exception of Laird, Grundy and Lloyd had very good JLTs
Rookies have what I believe to be the highest JS in their positions while maintaining point generation.

Lack of ruck depth: pierce will be St Kildas #1 without doubt, but I would rather an R3 with JS. The only things I could do would be Moore to rookie, Brayshaw to B Crouch or Laird to Mills to make the extra cash, but that affects point generation.
Expensive rookies: Scrimshw, Clark, Duursma, Walsh, Butters, Clarke, Moore, Setterfield, Pierce

So what do you guys think, community?

    derek · 17/03/2019 at 22:00

    way way too much spend in defense. go at least 1 of Laid or Lloyd to Williams and spend the extra $200k elsewhere

    Russty_ · 17/03/2019 at 22:32

    Hey Ty, I don't mind this, except for the Pierce part..could drop 50's, I like the Selwood pick and I reckon Brayshaw will take it to another level this year.
    I'd like the overall look better if you had Lycett as. F3 instead of Walters..then you could have a cheapo r3 Bines or schlongknob
    McKernan could be backup ruck over Clarke, I read somewhere.

    Bossarello14 · 17/03/2019 at 22:52

    Expensive rookies is a stupid mistake if u r an experienced coach, snap out of it!
    Not taking Gawn borders on the imbecilic
    Speechless at the Walters selection

    The Brayshaw pick is somewhat redemptive

    Patch · 18/03/2019 at 12:48

    Walters a very sneaky POD for anyone looking at his PPM in the JLT and the sneaky holes in Freo's midfield. Lewis Pearce and the lack of Williams the big talking points here.

    I don't like Pearce as R2, he'll fluctuate in price which will make it hard to turn him into Gawn, but if you've got a plan, you've got a plan. Why no on Williams?

      Tyruddanaut · 18/03/2019 at 21:21

      Will he average 100+? I don’t think so. I do, however, think that Hurn, Laird and Lloyd all have the potential to go 100+.

      Williams is unproven to put it simply and I’m not keen on taking risks (apart from pierce)

      Shake_n_bake · 19/03/2019 at 18:30


magic mullet · 17/03/2019 at 21:41

Fwd: danger, Heeney, t kelly, billings, Setterfield, drew (petrucelle, parker)

rip in boys!

    derek · 17/03/2019 at 22:08

    pretty good.

    I want to pick Rocky as well, but then i look at his numbers, except for that one massive year that will never be repeated again, he isn't a premium anymore, he won't make you enough cash

    i like BCrouch more than Rocky because he can be a premium, could be the Coniglio of last year. He is an injury risk for me, so i'm passing at that price, libba is a better price.

      magic mullet · 17/03/2019 at 23:31

      should i go rocky & b crouch to cousins & omeara

        Mick · 18/03/2019 at 20:39

        No, do you think O’Meara will be a genuine top 10 mid this year. 115+???

    Bossarello14 · 17/03/2019 at 23:14

    Lose the expensive rookies to enable u to get Grundy
    Billing’s makes me shudder, can’t see any consistency even if he scores ok overall
    bCrouch and Rocky r risky, consider switching to Atkins or another cheap rookies and get another premo in that backline

    Holty01 · 18/03/2019 at 04:15

    Like it and that’s with not having Grundy. I think not starting Grundy though means you won’t get him until it’s too late. Are you happy with that?
    I love the Rocky pick. First time in years he has his body right. I tend to agree with Derek that he won’t have that monster year again but if he can push 105 average, I’ll be happy.

      Derek · 18/03/2019 at 08:51

      Thinking ahead, rookies are hard to find now, they could be even harder to find when we look to cull.

      The Rocky, Greene, Billings, Bcrouch, BSmith, Williams, Petracca selections are worth looking at. These players might have to stay in teams very late, maybe all season because of lack of cash generation. Value like this might not present itself later in the year.

      They can also generate some cash as well, and shouldn’t lose any.

      They will make it very easy to jump on an Uber if there is a quick price drop in a Macrae, Fyfe, Kelly, Lloyd, Laird, Sicily etc instead of having to build a war chest

      I’m seriously looking at Greene and BCrouch

Scoops_McYoung · 17/03/2019 at 22:19

The current draft:

75k remaining in the bank.

Def: Laird, Whitfield, Smith, Scrimshaw, Clark, Duursma (Burgess, Hore)
Mid: Macrae, Cripps, Neale, Coniglio, M Crouch, Liberatore, Butters, Constable (Hind, Atkins, Gibbons)
Ruck: Grundy, Gawn (Sweet)
Fwd: Dangerfield, Heeney, Greene, Moore, Setterfield, Drew (Petrucelle, Parker)

– Don't like taking uber rookies so Walsh is ruled out.
– Could potentially drop Libba to another rookie who gets named (Bewley possibly) and upgrade a defender to Z Williams.

Let me know your thoughts community!

    silkyboy · 17/03/2019 at 22:27

    greene and moore nah mate not a rater

      Scoops_McYoung · 17/03/2019 at 22:31

      Interested to hear why mate!

      Russty_ · 17/03/2019 at 23:08

      I beg to differ sir, i think they could both be decent picks this year, barring any un-forseen injuries.

        Scoops_McYoung · 18/03/2019 at 14:56

        Thanks Russty_ Appreciate the comment!

Andy · 17/03/2019 at 22:22

Thoughts on my team?

DEF:Laird, Williams, Smith, Scrimshaw, Clark, Duursma (Burgess, Hore)
MID: Cripps, Oliver, Crouch, Brayshaw, Crouch, Libba, Walsh, Butters (Atkins, Scott, Gibbons)
RUCK: Grundy, Gawn (Sweet)
FWD: Danger, Heeney, Mundy, Kelly, Settlefield, Drew (Petrucelle, Parker)

Not sure whether or not to downgrade Grundy to Goldstein, which would enable me to go Brayshaw to Macrae?

    nankthetank · 17/03/2019 at 22:32

    Goldy averaged just under 111 after round 9 last year, grundy will still average more than that but how much more and is that much more worth $150k?

      Russty_ · 17/03/2019 at 23:07

      I think this year Nank, Grundy could average 120 and Goldy 110, that's why I'm picking Goldy, I'm hoping for a 10 point loss for 160k

        nankthetank · 18/03/2019 at 13:05

        Good call russty, I'm still undecided what I'll be doing and it'll probably be a thursday arvo decision!

    Not sold on McGrath and Dahl maybe go McGrath to Ridley and upgrade Dahl?

    NoLanguage96 · 18/03/2019 at 22:54

    Very solid mate, looked similar to one of my variations I was tossing up, but I’m currently locking in a lot more risky side going into round one as I’m trying something different this year

Bossarello14 · 17/03/2019 at 22:53

AND not taking Williams down back?…tsk tsk

    Sam_01 · 17/03/2019 at 23:00

    Yeah not sold on your ruck combo, your guaranteeing two trades there and no cash gen from it! Especially with Archie smith hanging around at brissy! I’d flick gray down to a Moore/Billings/Greene use the cash to grab a top ruck! Or if your sold on gray even flick heeny, I think he will be around the same price all year!

Sam_01 · 17/03/2019 at 23:01

Gee I’m scared to not be starting macrae surely he will drop to 600k?

    Russty_ · 17/03/2019 at 23:12

    I'm scared too Sam, haha yes he will have a few games when Libba Dunkley and Hunter take all his points and he drops 60k in one week, that's the plan anyway.

    Holty01 · 18/03/2019 at 04:31

    Hey guys. Just food for thought, if this happens (same as Grundy) how do you plan on getting him in? It’s hard enough finding 500k sometimes to get a fallen premo. 600k is obviously harder. IMO, if you don’t start him, you will need to sacrifice a lot to try and get him in.

      Derek · 18/03/2019 at 08:40

      Build a warchest with fat cows. Don’t have to paint the fence everytime

        Sam_01 · 18/03/2019 at 08:45

        Gonna be looking to do an upgrade from brad crouch at this point in time or libba haha whoever I can cash in when the time comes

    NoLanguage96 · 18/03/2019 at 23:02

    The grand plan is Libba to Mac. Fingers crossed the cows fatten enough

      Russty_ · 18/03/2019 at 23:12

      That's my plan too NL, Libba to Mac with some fancy trading shenanigans.

    Derek · 18/03/2019 at 08:35

    Don’t think JJK will play round 1

    Way too much spent on expensive defenders

    NoLanguage96 · 18/03/2019 at 23:00

    Wouldn't be spending the cash on Sicily with his role up in the air. Get Butters in your mids for one of McHenry or Hately and JJK is a no for me, maybe Brown or Lynch if you're after a KPP

      Bossarello14 · 19/03/2019 at 01:43

      Yep, I’ve culled Sicily and JKK

    Russty_ · 18/03/2019 at 23:16

    Think you need to get rid of those expensive rookies Bossarello…Clark, Duursma, Hately and Setterfield 🙂
    Not sure if the other expensive rookie, McHenry starts either.
    Actually, scrap that…just take whoever's named for round 1 lol

      Bossarello14 · 19/03/2019 at 01:46

      Lol u got my number! Looks like Butters and Walsh r a must. I need to see R1 teams already!! Great feedback 👍

    Russty_ · 17/03/2019 at 23:32

    Hi Josh I like your deep fwd line, but think 4 rooks in the mids could be too many, maybe consider leaving Sicily out until you know how his role change this year affects his scoring, you could go Ridley for him saving you bulk dollerioos…or Scrimshaw and whack Collins on-field.
    Could allow you to get Libba in the mids or Gawn in the rucks…or both.

      Josh · 17/03/2019 at 23:43

      Cheers mate!

      So out of my mid rookies, who do you suggest I get rid of?

      I've brought in Ridley and have $361k left.

        Russty_ · 17/03/2019 at 23:58

        Hey Josh, I'd probs turf Butters, one good hit and he's toast, he's still skinny as hell…reminds me of Bonner from last year who didn't work out after a good JLT.
        Is Stack a floating donut?…maybe get rid of him…or put Drew there as a swingset fwd, and get a new fwd.

      COREYSC · 17/03/2019 at 23:48

      Hey Russty, do ya reckon 1 premium, 2 mid pricers 3 rookies is the best structure in defence just like this side or 2 premium 2 Midprice and 2 rookies there seems to be some good rookies in defence this season

        Russty_ · 18/03/2019 at 00:00

        Hey COREY yeah I like that def structure this year, I'm going Laird, Williams, Smith, Collins, Duursma, Clark – Hore, Burgess
        This year, going deep in the fwds and what I think is solid in the mids, but I do have Goldy instead of Grundy.

COREYSC · 17/03/2019 at 23:36

1st option M5 B.Crouch R2 Gawn
2nd option M5 M.Crouch R2 Goldy

    Russty_ · 18/03/2019 at 00:02

    B.Crouch and Gawn mate, take the ride! if he stays in one piece could end up outscoring his lil brother.

      COREYSC · 18/03/2019 at 10:19

      Cheers Russty

Matt F · 17/03/2019 at 23:45

Here is my team, Community.

Laird, Williams, Smith (Clark)
Ridley, Collins, Scrimshaw (Hore)

Macrae, Cripps, Oliver (Constable)
Neale, Coniglio, Martin (Scott)
Butters, Duursma (Atkins)

Grundy, Smith (Clarke)

Dangerfield, Heeney, Kelly (Burgess)
Moore, Setterfield, Drew (Parker)

My remaining salary sits at $7,800.

Taking a big risk with Archie Smith as R2, if he's not named round one then I'll have to reshuffle a premium to a rookie and slot in a Goldstein or a Gawn. Unsure at this stage, would love Smith to play.

If you think you can do it better than me, come challenge me in my league: 573548

Keen to see @Lekdog there!

    Ewoks8Stormtroopers · 18/03/2019 at 00:05

    Yeah, the Archie Smith thing is a mighty big gamble for sure!

    Nice looking team when you've got that flight of fancy all sorted though.

    Russty_ · 18/03/2019 at 00:32

    Shouldn't be too hard to do if Smith doesn't work out Matty…you could afford to go down to someone like Libba or Walsh in the mids..unless you're determined to run 6 premos.
    Vardy could be another option, played well in the GF last year..not sure if Clarke will get a game.
    Drew could be in the mids with Petrucelle in the fwds maybe?

    Holty01 · 18/03/2019 at 04:43

    Agree with Russty Matt. If the Smith thing fails, shouldbe able to correct it easily. But that midfield is the bomb mate

Hello all.
My team had a big shuffle after the JLT and now I’ve put quite a few back in.
Also the rookies will be finislided when teams announced.
Whitfield, Hurn, B Smith, Ridley, Clark, Wilkie ( Duursma, Hore)

Cripps, Oliver, Coniglio, seleood, B Crouch, libba, butters, Constable (Drew, Scott, Gibbons)

Gawn, Goldy (Fort)

Danger, Heeney, Darling, Billings, setterfield, Burgess (Petruccelle Balta)

    Ewoks8Stormtroopers · 18/03/2019 at 00:25

    I've toyed with the idea of Hurn, the kick-in rules are in his favour, but for a bloke that's been in the league 13 years and has never been a SC performer, I just think he's a gamble.

    I don't mind the Selwood idea though – a consistent performer, but just not sure he'll be a top 10 mid come season's end. M Couch or Brayshaw might though?

    Probably look to save $15k by putting in a zero rookie in Fort's place – I liked the idea of him too, but it turns out that (unfortunately) he's just not that good at footy and probably won't play.

Who’s the better F3?
Dunkley, Mundy, Walters, Darling, Lycett

Tim Kelly is also an option but don’t like having 3 from the same bye

    Holty01 · 18/03/2019 at 04:39

    Ive gone Dunkley from that lot if that helps.

      TommyC99 · 18/03/2019 at 04:46

      You aren’t worried about the amount of mid/fwds the doggies have?

I knew I couldn’t leave my team alone.

It looks pretty safe, so I thought I would risk it up if Greene is named Round 1.

Mundy > Greene F4
Moore > BCrouch M6
Clarke > Wilkie

      KeenButClueless · 18/03/2019 at 12:31

      To be honest Derek, I liked your other team better.

      Having to put Burgess Hore or Wilkie onfield will claw back some if not all the points you gained by having Crouch on it I really think they will be 10-20 points less than Clark. They are also three slow burning cash generators.

      You have lost both your swing sets

      Drew at F6 worries me. I seem to be of a different opinion to the rest of the community here, because I think that he will be the one to go in Round 2 when Wines is back. If I am right, what’s the play? You either need to bring in another forward rookie (Maybe Dylan Moore or Balta play, but they definitely look vulnerable after a round). Or you bring Burgess down. Then you have a real slow burn rookie at D6 and F6.

      You have also ended up with a risky F3 against a solid F3. 503k is a lot for a homesick second year player.

      If you do go down this line, have you thought about Mills instead of B Crouch?

      In my humble opinion, your other side was better. If you do want to bring in Greene over Kelly, perhaps use the money to upgrade Merrett.

        Derek · 18/03/2019 at 12:58

        yeah, i had another look this morning, don't like it, prefer 4 deep premiums in forwards. i actually like Libba at M6, had him there most of the preseason

          FearTheBeard · 18/03/2019 at 15:02

          Derek who are your 4 deep premium forwards?

      Shake_n_bake · 19/03/2019 at 18:42

      Greene has a tough first 4 rds. Ess Eagles away Tigers and Cats away.

MidPrice · 18/03/2019 at 08:22


Strong midfield and rucks at the expense of forward and back lines, but I figure you need to use your trades somewhere.

I think its pretty set, not convinced on the Libba/B Crouch/Sheed/Rockcliff in the guts so. Think I can get more value out of a rookie. Gone with the big guns except Lloyd, can always trade down from there if something goes wrong. Plenty of value in defence to start a bit light I think.

Any thoughts or tips on the above?

Would love some suggestions on this team, I feel I have too many top and rookies and not enough middle.

DEF: Sicily, Savage, Z Williams, C Rozee, J Clarke, M Hore (I Quaynor, C Burgess)
MID: Macrae, Cripps, Neale, Coniglio, O'Meara, A McGrath, S Walsh, Z Butters (J Cousins, L Davies-Uniacke, C Constable)
RUCK: T English, N Vardy (D Cameron)
FWD: P Dangerfield, D Smith, C Petracca, J Worpel, A Vandenberg, W Setterfield (W Drew M Parker).

Any suggestions would be great.

    John · 18/03/2019 at 10:12

    Hey Rusty!

    For defence, get Duursma and Collins in as they'll be playing. Quaynor needs time in the VFL and Rozee is 50/50 to play. Savage is a risky pick and it may be better to invest in Brodie Smith as he is cheaper and a proven scorer

    For mid, downgrade McGrath to Libba and swap Davies-Uniacke to Bailey Scott

    For the ruck, I highly recommend having at least one of Brodie Grundy or Max Gawn, it'll be too hard to get them later in the year

    For forwards, drop Vandenberg down to Darcy Moore or a cheap rookie (e.g. Balta) and use some cash to get Isaac Heeney in

    Just my opinion personally but there are some nice POD selections in your team. Good luck!

    Josh Berry · 18/03/2019 at 10:18

    I think you should hit clear team and start again buddy

Hey guys! First time poster on this blog, it's been great reading all the content here, you guys are great. I'd like some feedback on my team! This is my first year playing SuperCoach so probably a bit of an odd side, but would appreciate any advice.

Remaining Salary: $1,400

DEF: J. Silcily, C. Mills, Z. Williams, A. McGrath, B. Smith, X. Duursma (J. Clark, T. Watson)
MID: L. Neale, S. Coniglio, S. Sidebottom, A. Brayshaw, T. Rockliff, D. Sheed, T. Liberatore, S. Walsh (Z. Butters, W. Drew, M. Gibbons)
RUCK: S. Martin, T. Goldstein (D. Fort)
FWD: J. Dunkley, T. Kelly, J. De Goey, A. vandenBerg, W. Setterfield, N. Balta (J. Petruccelle, B. Cavarra)

Thanks again!

    John · 18/03/2019 at 12:43

    Just personal thoughts

    For defence, downgrade Mills and McGrath to Collins and Scrimshaw, swap Watson to Hore. Defence is the best line for rookies and midpricers so it'll save you coin for everywhere else

    For midfield, you'll need some genuine 110+ every week guns. Get Brayshaw and Rockliff up to Cripps/Fyfe/Oliver. Sheeds a nice POD pick. Move Drew forward for Cavarra (injured) and replace Drews mid spot with Atkins or Bailey Scott.

    For rucks, you need one of Grundy or Gawn. Move on Martin as Archie Smith may drop his scoring input.

    For forward, get Dangerfield in as he's a must have. Swap Vandenberg for Toby Greene (more reliable) or Darcy Moore (lower price, high potential). Balta is risky being in a top tier side, Parker from St Kilda is a safe rookie option

    Good luck with the Season!

sas028 · 18/03/2019 at 10:56

Hey guys. First time on this page really has helped with my team. Would love some feedback.

Remaining salary: $19,200

RUCK: S. Martin, T. Goldstein (J. Sweet)
FWD: P. Dangerfield, D. Smith, I. Heeney, W. Drew, W. Setterfield, J. Petruccelle (M. Parker, B. Cavarra)

Was considering swapping out D. Smith or I. Heeney for J. Dunkley. Thoughts?

    John · 18/03/2019 at 12:47

    Solid side! I do recommend getting Xavier Duursma in though. Get rid of Cavarra (injured) and shift Burgess down forward so you can put Duursma in defence

    Maybe swap Whitfield or Witherden to Brodie Smith and use the spare cash to upgrade Goldy to Gawn (need at least one of Grundy or Gawn)

      Paul · 18/03/2019 at 20:43

      Also look at removing smith and brining in someone cheaper like Biklings, Darling, Boak.

    Dusty · 18/03/2019 at 20:43

    Team looks solid but upgrade Martin and think there’s better premo’s than Witherden and Smith will just let you down IMO. Good structure though.

    Matt · 18/03/2019 at 12:52

    Good side! All I'd recommend is trade out Darling, move Setterfield forward and bring in another good midfielder

The mongrel punt · 18/03/2019 at 11:09

In light of Al Clarkson's comments regarding Scrimshaw and he's lack of match fitness. I'd be very nervous if I had him at D4 like so many teams I've seen here

    No gawn, interesting

    Russty_ · 18/03/2019 at 21:14

    Hey GD, I'd swap Grundy for Gawn, get rid of Hately for Atkins and Treloar should be ok, he's a gun.
    You should have 4 keepers in the mids.
    Reckon you could strengthen your fwd line though with another premo or at least a midpricer.

      GloryDays94 · 18/03/2019 at 23:04

      Why would you go Gawn over Grundy? Not sure I can bring myself to play a MID Price player FWD… Moore and Greene just have a huge ? About how they will go…

        Russty_ · 18/03/2019 at 23:11

        I just think he'll do better this year, But they're really 50-50 for who's better.
        Moore has more of a ? rather then Greene, who can average 90+ , I'd rather gamble on him than Drew or Petrucelle keeping their jobs or scoring ok.

          GloryDays94 · 18/03/2019 at 23:14

          I would have to drop Steele from my midfield probably down to Libba to get Greene in?

            Russty_ · 18/03/2019 at 23:22

            Could consider Brayshaw or B.Crouch?…I think Lloyd's your real money sucker in your backline, he doesn't need to be there yet.
            Could Keep Steele and upgrade the fwd line…if you like, even your rucks.

              GloryDays94 · 18/03/2019 at 23:33

              Nah there is no way of having Greene and Steele in the team. I would have to go 4 MID premos and a MID Price player like Libba to have Greene

                Russty_ · 19/03/2019 at 00:06

                Not if you went Lloyd to Ridley or Collins, they'll probably both hold their own. That's what I said before, Lloyd isn't necessary yet, your backline's good enough without him.

    Ninja · 18/03/2019 at 13:04

    You can free up plenty of cash in defence. Swap Hurn, move Duursma to defence and bring in another premo mid.
    For forwards, Toby Greene is a high risk, potential high reward option so you could free even more cash by downgrading Menegola.

    Use the spare midfield slot to get a Fyfe/Oliver/Neale. Upgrade Brad Crouch to another one of Fyfe/Oliver/Neale

Stompers · 18/03/2019 at 12:10

Hi everyone,

Let me know what you think, probs will change yet again lol, my defence is mostly a lock depending on rookie starters.

Gone for a few mid priced mids, def value there, if all goes well they have the upside to match the uber mids and go up in value, big IF! Maybe

catch a few fallen Pemos along the way.

Whitfield, Hurn, Mills, Williams, Scrimshaw, Duursma R+R

Cripps, Oliver, B Crouch, Rockcliff, Sheed, , Walsh, butters, constable, R+R+R

Grundy, Gawn Sweet

Not sure yet on Dunkley, he could change, Darling had a good season last and play well in the JLT, has positives there and the teams playing well.

        It's a hard one since the middle bye has so many good premos. From your team the only ones I'd consider swapping are treloar and tim kelly. Lots of possible similar swaps with different byes in that range. Some I'd consider: Mids- mcrouch, zorko, zmerett, dusty. Fwds – grey, dunkley, dev smith

      Not confident in williams at all to be honest, also like the idea of leaving him out considering hes such a popular pick,
      Not completely sold on witherden, could easily become lloyd and also don't mind another risky option in Newman

      Rookies are looking shaky this year so mid prices in defence seems to look ok

Gaz · 18/03/2019 at 12:47

I’ve seen a lot of Bullish chat and team inclusion around B Crouch but when comparing Rockliff, there seems to be plenty of scepticism? To me both represent the same level of risk with Crouch perhaps being slightly the more riskier option given his injury history.

I’ve had teams where one or both have been in but as of today, find myself looking at excluding the both!

Out of the entire squad selection headaches, I see this being the biggest motivation toward taking 3 Advil and having a lay down!!

Thoughts community?

    Derek · 18/03/2019 at 13:08

    i agree. this morning woke up and put Greene and BCrouch in my team. worried i miss out. but too much risk for not much reward

    by lunch time they are both gone.

      Sam_01 · 18/03/2019 at 15:40

      What do you mean not much reward!!!! If B crouch can average 100-110 based of JLT hell even average 90-95 he will go up 100-200k it’s basically like having a rookie hanging out 100s for you! Same goes for tobias but he will be more the 90-95 range at the lower starting price

If some of the rookie are missing come round 1, I'll look to downgrade Scrimshaw to a 123K rook and upgrade a mid rookie to Walsh, otherwise I'm locked

Would love some feedback

MikeLowrey · 18/03/2019 at 12:53

Going for a POD lineup to make SC a bit interesting:

Def: Laird Williams Smith Scrimshaw Clark Burgess (Duursma Hore)
Mid: Cripps Oliver Fyfe Marin Brayshaw B.Crouch Butters Constable (Hind Scott Atkins)
Ruck Grundy Goldy (Bines)
Fwd Danger Kelly De Goey Greene Setterfield Drew (Petruclle Parker)

113k in the bank

Tossing up between going an extra in defence

A) Burgess – Fyfe
B) Whitfield – Libba

Also tossing up between Walters & De Goey as F3

Thanks fellas

    Carleton · 20/03/2019 at 08:23

    Go Whitfield and Liberatore. A lot of people aren't picking Liberatore because they've already picked two other midfielders: Macrae and Dunkley. You, however, have picked neither, so you should go ahead and pick option B.

Jeff · 18/03/2019 at 12:55

Not sure if I downgrade a DEF or FWD and upgrade a MID to Premo.

    Sam_01 · 18/03/2019 at 13:43

    Why the Dahlhaus pick? I reckon you may have gone a touch to fat in the mids plenty of decent rookies to be picked up in there and you wanna exploit them all for the cash gen, id maybe drop a midpricer like viney/libba/rocky use the cash to upgrade fwd/mids
    Love the backline though and don’t mind the English pick

      Rusty · 18/03/2019 at 14:57

      Thanks Sam, I thought he had value in the cats team and should score ok.
      I'll look at downgrading a mid, who would you have in mind?

        Harrison · 18/03/2019 at 16:02

        Get rid of viney mate.
        Injury riddled and not a huge pre-season, also many contested ball mids in Melbourne side.

          Rusty · 18/03/2019 at 17:41

          Thanks Harrison

    Russty_ · 18/03/2019 at 17:48

    Hey Rusty, it's me Russty…lol, yeah I reckon Viney to maybe B.Crouch and Dahlhaus to a Dunkley, Kelly type.
    I'd put Sweet in for Fort too, could get early games.

    Westy · 19/03/2019 at 07:52

    Very interesting team.
    Gone deep in def.
    Nice to see Sloane in a team. A lot of 'mid price madness' and pricey rookies in the mids.
    Ruck depth has suffered because you've gone deep in the mids and def. Seriously courageous structure – if this works out, well done!
    Dahlhaus at F3 is a POD. Hope he has a bumper year and that works out for you.

    Spifflicator · 19/03/2019 at 10:32

    I really like this concept by taking a punt on a different Ruck path. Not so keen on Viney and Dalhaus, I reckon theres better options, such as BCrouch or Rioli (WC version).

    Great work

      Rusty · 19/03/2019 at 11:01

      Thanks for the guidance all.

      Viney is out for B Crouch I'm not 100% on Dalh but def a POD.

Sam_01 · 18/03/2019 at 13:40

What defensive rookies are going to make the most cash, tossing up whether to try squeeze another in to get macrae or just roll with libba instead, currently have
1. Scrimshaw
2. Clarke
I honestly see libba going up 150-200k is there any other rookie that can rival that cash gen? Collins maybe but it’s a push

    NoLanguage96 · 18/03/2019 at 22:44

    I reckon Ridley could pocket 150k Sam. 230k and looked real solid for the Bombers down back

    Spifflicator · 19/03/2019 at 11:37

    There will always be rookies that go up 200k because they only need to average 65 plus have have one 80+ to push them past $350k. Libba has to average 95 to go up 200k. Thats why so few midpricers pay off, as its way harder to jump up to that level. Libba has done it before so I agree he's worth a punt, but not for me this year.

    I will punt on mid pricers down back and up fwd, the mids are pure GnR.

Aaron summergreene · 18/03/2019 at 13:41

Hey guys. Interested to hear your thoughts on this. Team hasn’t changed much since I opened

Def. Lloyd Hurn Williams b.smith Clark duursma

Thanks guys

    Westy · 19/03/2019 at 07:45

    Looks like a good mix of prems, mids and rooks (but you didn't list an R3). How much left over $? Greene would be my only concern in case he does something floggish or injures himself.
    If something happens to Crouch early, there's Rockliff, Sheed or Libba who can pump out the points without downgrading too far.

      Aaron Summergreene · 19/03/2019 at 19:12

      hey mate ive got that 102k bulldogs player for loophole and i also have 61k in the bank

TommyC99 · 18/03/2019 at 13:44

Greene F4 and Brodie Smith D3


Hurn D1 (williams D3) and Moore F4

    Sam_01 · 18/03/2019 at 13:51

    Flip a coin mate depends how the rest of your team structures up! I’ve gone risky with my mid pricers this year
    Lock smith in! Not sold on Greene even though I have him, and Moore I have aswell just seems good value in the fwd at his price!

Team choice · 18/03/2019 at 13:59

FearTheBeard · 18/03/2019 at 14:02

Lads B Crouch & Greene


Libba & T. Kelly?

Stumped… Final piece.

    Sam_01 · 18/03/2019 at 14:25

    I’d say libba and T kelly is the safer bet, probably looking at the same cash gen from either option aswell depends on the rest of your structure and fielded rookies/byes I guess

    Lobbe Wan Kenobi · 18/03/2019 at 14:27

    Think I would be leaning towards Libba/Kelly out of those choices.

      FearTheBeard · 18/03/2019 at 14:33

      Thanks guys.

      I could go another option.

      Rocky & Greene?

      At the moment I have Kelly & Libba locked after posting lol.

      Just felt Kelly should be safer then Greene at least and Libba/Rocky/Crouch is all a gamble but Libba is the least expensive.

Kevin · 18/03/2019 at 14:06

DEF: Hurn, Crisp, Williams, Smith, Clark, Duursma (Burgess, Hore)

RUC: Grundy, Gawn
FWD: Dangerfield, Heeney, Billings, Moore, Setterfield, Parker (Petruccelle, Balta)

Pretty happy with the structure of the side, only changes will probably be rookies. 69.2k left, thoughts?

FearTheBeard · 18/03/2019 at 14:06

Also on the above this is the current set up :

Laird, Williams, Smith, Scrimshaw, Clark, Duursma, Burgess, Hore

Macrae, Cripps, Cogs, Dusty, Brayshaw, B. Crouch, Walsh, Butters, Constable, Scott, Atkins

Grundy, Gawn, Bines

Danger, Heeney, Greene, Moore, Setterfield, Drew, Petrucelle, Parker

Obviously B Crouch would swap with Libba & Greene would swap with T Kelly if I went the other way?

    Sam_01 · 18/03/2019 at 14:26

    Probably like the current set up a bit more

Thoughts appreciated thanks

    Harrison · 18/03/2019 at 16:06

    I would be suspect with having Drew and Petrucelle on the field in forward line, it is most definitely the weakest rookie player line.
    Probablly swap out a defender to a rookie then upgrade a forward rookie.

    magic mullet · 18/03/2019 at 16:37

    cavarra is injured and wont get a game

      Murray · 18/03/2019 at 18:48

FearTheBeard · 18/03/2019 at 14:22

M Crouch or Brayshaw?

    FearTheBeard · 18/03/2019 at 14:34

    Even wider question.

    M Crouch, Brayshaw, Beams?

    8UP · 18/03/2019 at 14:35

    M Crouch

    Sam_01 · 18/03/2019 at 14:58

    M crouch is a safe value lock, Brayshaw bit more of a smoky

Lobbe Wan Kenobi · 18/03/2019 at 14:26

Which M3/F3 combination would you guys rate better out of:

1. Neale & Tim Kelly
2. Treloar & Josh Dunkley

Personally I am leaning more towards option 2 but would be interested in the communities thoughts. Cheers

    FearTheBeard · 18/03/2019 at 14:39

    I'd go Kelly with Trealor probz. Not a huge fan of Neale and Dunkley has to many q's for me.

    Murray · 18/03/2019 at 14:40

    no 1

    Jambo · 20/03/2019 at 18:15

    Neale! I didn’t like Tim Kelly’s postseason attitude about the non-trade. I reckon we could see a role change.

RoyWetard · 18/03/2019 at 14:33

Cripps and Mills, Macrae and Newman or Cripps and Newman?

$163,200 left over.

I'll say it straight out. I'm not comfortable with Moore.
I am comfortable with Dunkley. He tackles and I'm pretty sure he will score well despite an average JLT.
Oliver and Brayshaw in the same midfield. Not completely sold on that.
Like all, I would love to sueeze Gawn in.
Crouch is a risk with his injury history, but sometimes you have to take a risk.

    Lekdog · 19/03/2019 at 09:45

    Isn't $163K enough to get Gawn?

      comonyouspurs · 19/03/2019 at 11:01

      I think it was just short.
      Once again I've changed the whole set up.
      I moved Drew to the midfield so I could have a FWD in the midfield. Got rid of Gibbons and picked Cavarra. I know he won't play early, but there's not much else there.

    If you’re playing for overall you might have too many premo players with the Round 14 bye, I count 8, otherwise it’s really good. I’m sticking to no Gawn personally as I feel Preuss is still very much a threat in the long run

    Mystic_Mac · 18/03/2019 at 16:09

    Like the Steele pick!
    Don't think it's a must, Greene has a fair bit of risk attached.

David · 18/03/2019 at 15:51

Why isnt anyone looking at sloane? He is only 524k and he had a great JLT. Is it because people prefer the crouch brothers?

    Mystic_Mac · 18/03/2019 at 16:15

    He's in my side. I feel the Crouch brothers may draw some attention away from him.
    Sloane has averaged 114 (2014), 108 (2016) and 110 (2017) when Crouch brothers all on the park. Will definitely be a big POD, just hope he can deal with the tag when it comes..

      David · 18/03/2019 at 16:18

      Yea true the tag is his big problem, though I think the 6-6-6 rule will discourage taggers because you can only have a limited number of midfielders so teams might want to make sure their midfield is stacked with only ball winners to win the clearance.

    Russty_ · 18/03/2019 at 17:25

    He's good value but I'm going with Brayshaw instead, plus I've already got 2 Crows in my side.

    Sam_01 · 18/03/2019 at 21:49

    Yeah I love the bloke he can go massive! Was in my side for quite a while but I’ve gone both the crouchs and my team has to much mid price madness so didn’t wanna push further risks

    he Is my M5

      RussellRow3 · 21/03/2019 at 10:55

      I have all of M.Crouch, Sloane and Brayshaw, Sloane has been so dependable in the past and I think he is a top pick!

    David · 18/03/2019 at 16:21

    Depends on the risk profile of the rest of you team. If the rest of your team is cookie cutter than you can consider crouch rockliff because they will likely outscore the kelly walsh combo, though you wont have the cash generation that will walsh will provide. Id personally go with kelly walsh because it is the safer pick, and would like to take greater risk in other lines, such as the forward line where there is a lack of true premo quality players other than dangerfield.

Chris_Judd · 18/03/2019 at 16:52

Who do I pick out of Brayshaw and Steele? Really leaning towards Steele as his round 12 bye suits me well however I feel like Brayshaw is more likely to make the jump to premium status

    7UP · 18/03/2019 at 16:59

    Steele good POD

    Russty_ · 18/03/2019 at 20:05

    Listen to your gut then Juddy, (in regards to Brayshaw) Steele is in a crap team that will get hammered.

      Sam_01 · 18/03/2019 at 21:58

      People are picking Steele based off his ending to the year and jlt form

    Probably keep Whitfield. 70k pre round 1 might be handy with alot of uncertainty around rookies.

    But 1 thing I might suggest is ditching Sweet for Bines. You have Westhoff @R2, so unless if Sweet plays and generates enough coin to downgrade to Bines, you're gonna regret that later.

    Greg · 19/03/2019 at 18:09

    I just heard from a not so reliable source that Whitfield may be used as a swingman when the Giants are in need of a goal.
    Also Whitfield was quoted on saying he was working on forward running patterns.
    Take it as you will.

Hey all, first season playing classic and looking for someone to critique my side a bit. Spent ages tossing up Conigs and M Crouch, and B Crouch + Libba over Dusty/Fyfe + another rookie. Only got the 10k spare.

Sharkmove_King · 18/03/2019 at 17:13

Every year I can remember playing this game I've been torched by Carlton & Richmond players straight up. Last year it was Kreuzer.

I still remember Benny Cousins hamstring going ping, Andy Raines, Chris Yarran tagged, the list goes on and on. Who could forget some of the disaster rookies. Pickett, Garlett, Relton Roberts, Menapoo!!!

So this year I'm not getting sucked in. I'm making a call on all Carlton Richmond players right now and sticking with it. I'm only going safe players, any 50/50 player is out!

Dusty, Cripps, Setterfield and Walsh welcome to my team. Balta, Newman & Gibbons have a red line through their name and anyone else who comes from nowhere!

Bbq Treloar

gator59 · 18/03/2019 at 17:27

Pick 2 out f these 4, Cogs, Dusty, M.Crouch and Trealor

    Russty_ · 18/03/2019 at 17:29

    Hi Gator, the 2 C's for me. I consider Cogs about equal with Treloar though.

      gator59 · 18/03/2019 at 18:03

      Hi Russty Trealor @ 7% ownership I really like… We all know he can butcher it from time to time But also can huge too

        Russty_ · 18/03/2019 at 18:20

        Yeah he loves getting hold of the ball, even when his d/e suffers he's still thereabouts of 100 ish

          gator59 · 18/03/2019 at 18:45

          Plus the BIG G knocking it down his throat may help to

            Sam_01 · 18/03/2019 at 19:41

            I’ve gone treloar and crouch, conigs if a definite lock tho I’d pick him ahead of crouch if I could afford it

    JohnDJ59 · 18/03/2019 at 20:25

    Cogs and M.Crouch.

    Danners · 18/03/2019 at 21:15

    Cogs and Treloar, bit bias but most consistent over the years

THE G TRAIN · 18/03/2019 at 17:33







    Bob Butter · 18/03/2019 at 18:12

    like it, not sure if swap scrimshaw for collins who has greater job security imo

    Russty_ · 18/03/2019 at 22:21

    Stop Yelling at meeee!…lol, well your team looks ok to me, but i've looked at so many teams the last few days, I've gone numb in the brain, but your team is pretty solid…
    Don't worry too much about getting B.Crouch in for Libba, they could average the same,.and either of them could break in half at any moment. Smith will be a good pick I'm sure,
    Stop yelling at meeeee !!!! 🙂

KSinny · 18/03/2019 at 17:39

Here's my team, not sure about Moore but pretty happy with everything else.

DEF: Whitfield, Williams, Smith, Collins, Scrimshaw, Clark (Burgess, Hore)

MID: Macrae, Cripps, Cogs, Dusty, M. Crouch, Libba, Walsh,Duursma (Constable, Scott, Atkins)

RUC: Grundy, Gawn (Schlensog)

FWD: Danger, Heeney, Kelly , Moore, Setterfield, Drew (Petruccelle, Parker)

    Russty_ · 18/03/2019 at 17:51

    Hi Sinny, I reckon Morre will score ok if he doesn't break, being the intercept backman who kicks in could be right up his alley.
    Think a lot of people are really underrating Collins, I reckon he's a good pick., they're thinking of him as an expensive rookie but he's not a rookie.
    Good side I like it 🙂

      KSinny · 18/03/2019 at 18:23

      Cheers mate really appreciate it! Do you think Butters is a must have in the midfield? I had him but had to trade him to make money for Moore.

        Russty_ · 18/03/2019 at 18:43

        No I don't think he is, he's not in my side, all those Port rookies could lose their jobs when 7 guys come back, Bonner was like him last year, started well and then turned to shite.
        No rookies are really essential except the ones playing round 1, I think Collins is cause his job is secure..and Walsh is a gun who we could hang onto for half the season or more.

TommyC99 · 18/03/2019 at 18:41

Hey guys, Treloar, fyfe or Neale? As a pies man i'd love treloar but we have a toughish start and plenty of midfielders potentially taking points off him. Although i feel he is the least likely to get shifted out of the midfield for stints compared to the likes of Pendles, sidey and beama.

    Russty_ · 18/03/2019 at 18:48

    I'm going with Fyfe out of those 3 Tommy, had Neale for awhile but Fyfe has declared his elbow 100%

D: Lloyd Williams Collins Scrimshaw Clark Duursma (Burgess, Hore)
M: Macrae Cripps Oliver Congilio Taranto Walsh Butters Constable (Scott Atkins Gibbons)
R: Grundy Gawn (Bines)
F: Danger Menegola Heeney Mundy Setters Drew (Parker Petrucelle)

Thoughts? It seems this is a year to take premos away from the defence and stack the forward lines, and menegola and mundy are pretty safe bets. If taranto fires this will be huge for my team, and I see him poised to follow the likes of Kelly and Olover in their breakout years

(Really want Sheed, BSmith and the Hoff but not sure how they fit into this team)

    Russty_ · 18/03/2019 at 18:55

    Do you want Sheed for his 79 average from last year or his 83 average from the year before?…JLT doesn't really matter because it's not a reflection of what they're gonna do.

    JohnDJ59 · 18/03/2019 at 20:28

    You need B.Smith in defence, I think three rookies would be alright, but not four.

      Russty_ · 18/03/2019 at 20:48

      Agree John, as much as I like Collins, Smith needs to be there.

Gaz · 18/03/2019 at 19:37

Ok the team is set (stc of course) and I was doing the final analytics in terms of ownership…This one’s for the numbers fanatics.

I have 4 on field players with an ownership of less than 10% and 2 more with an ownership of less than 20%!

At this time I’m actually pleased with these numbers and even more pleased at the fact the picks in these categories aren’t in any dumb!

What happens come completion of the first few rounds remains to be seen, I could well be found rocking backward and forward at some point!

Anyways, anyone want to navel gaze and share some of their ownership percentages?

Good luck everyone btw

    Boris_Baconbeer · 18/03/2019 at 19:52

    8 at 10% or lower 4 at 20% or lower for me. 😀

Boof · 18/03/2019 at 19:40

Thoughts on running The Hoff as R2 ??

    Crowmagnon · 18/03/2019 at 19:55

    I've been weighing it up since sc opened.
    If you think he is going to be a top 6 forward, go for it.

    Russty_ · 18/03/2019 at 20:02

    May as well go Lycett, he's more likely to be number 1 Ruck and will save you money too.

      Boof · 18/03/2019 at 20:55

      The issue is I don't rate Lycett at all. At least with the Hoff you know what you're going to get, whether it up up forward or in the ruck. The extra cash would be nice, but points-wise I reckon it would be a sacrifice.

        Russty_ · 18/03/2019 at 21:11

        Fair enough Boof but you're writing him off before he's played a full season in a new club in a new role.
        He's a gamble for sure but Westhoff is 32, if Lycett ends up averaging 100 you're laughing…means he'll get to 550 k or so.

    Hart_attack · 18/03/2019 at 21:14

    My initial plan was to run lycett in r2 then move him fwd before the byes for cover.
    Still might

      JohnDJ59 · 18/03/2019 at 21:36

      That's what I've gone with.

        Crowmagnon · 18/03/2019 at 22:05

        Thinking Westhoff R2 until I get enough ca$h together to move him fwd and get the top ruck I didn't start.
        Only questions are:
        1 is the hoff going to finish top 6 fwd again?
        2 which ruck to leave out?

          Sam_01 · 18/03/2019 at 22:20

          If you have the sac you can start mummy and use Hoff swing till he is back

        Yeah you're right Shake, but the way my draft team turned out, he was the only one in the fwd line not a complete spud haha

Finally have a first draft full team on Monday evening, ready to go… except…
…have at it! Rip into it. Tell me my follies, let me know my good ideas, etc…. I think there are one or two eyebrow raisers in here, and you folk might convince me I'm onto something maybe, or I'm just fair dinkum dumb! Have at it!

Lloyd, Williams, Smith (Burgess)
Ridley, Scrimshaw, Duursma (Hore)
Macrae, Cripps, Martin, (Constable)
M Crouch, Sloane (Scott)
Liberatore, Walsh, Butters (Atkins)
Grundy, Gawn (Bines)
Dangerfield, Heeney, Lycett (Pretuccelle)
Moore, Setterfield, Drew (Parker)

From the start, not sure on Hore, not convinced having two mid rookies from Geelong at once, not sold on Parker!
Sloane was Merrett for a little while, but I try to steer clear of my own team so I can just enjoy their games (as much as I can enjoy Essendon these last ten years! 🙂 ), and Heeney has been T Kelly at times as well.
Is Lycett worth a gamble in the forward line and a backup ruck?

Have at it!

$16,700 in the kitty, about $40k if Heeney is Kelly.

Northerner · 18/03/2019 at 21:55

A couple of pods in the forwards I’m considering.

Darling in only 3%. If you take out his 2 injury effected games he would have averaged 97 last year. Well priced. His ceiling is massive, but will be KPF ride.

A more consistent option is Boak. Lower ceiling, but more likely a floor at 75/80 with some 120s thrown in if he does stay in the midfield. He’s a more natural midfielder and Ebert a better fit for the HFF.

Boak better for my bye structure as Darling is bloody round 13.

WinnerzRGrinnerz · 18/03/2019 at 23:39

Is anyone else really concerned about the backline rookies and job security. I really am thinking of running quite deep down back to avoid early trades/donuts come round 3/4. The likes of Clark, scrimshaw, duursma and Hore I feel could play the first two games and then easily be out.

I see a lot of teams running two of these guys and sometimes even three on field which seems like madness to me but maybe I’m missing something?

I’m actually opting to go for value in the midfield and take a risk at R2 to avoid wasteful early trades to counter the lack of backline and forward rookie depth. Keen on everyone else’s thoughts on the defensive rookies.


    KeenButClueless · 19/03/2019 at 00:11

    I am probably more concerned about the forward rookies. I am running one – Setterfield. I see many running two or three and just wonder. Truth be told, every year is like this for me. I back against the rookies and every year they come through.

    So, in relation to your defensive rookies, I see the risk. Scrimshaw perhaps underdone,Clark loses his spot to Tuohy and Duursma loses his spot to Hartlett. I am hoping Clark can stay ahead of O’Connor for that role, and maybe Duursma has Polec’s spot.

    I am playing Moore at F5 with the Burgess swing at D7, which is mitigating. I am also keeping enough cash to go up to Collins in an emergency. A couple of the StKilda boys might emerge. Tyler Brown, Francis Watson and Harry Jones might not be too far away. Not seeing the same light forward.

    Overall, GnR has stood the test of time. I will probably still buck it a little. One day I will be right, but not so far.

      Northerner · 19/03/2019 at 05:56

      You have to back the rookies in. And corrective trades in the rookies is something you should plan for. Because firstly it allows you to go to uber premium keepers – top 10 rather than top 15 – and it’s where all your cash generation comes from. Mid pricers only work if there are no rookies in a line or you pick a Oliver style winner from 2017 and they become top 10.

      So to use your example, Clark may get dropped, but chances are there will be another rookie you missed or one that emerges that you can trade for.

        WinnerzRGrinnerz · 19/03/2019 at 12:00

        Cheers Northerner. I’m with you and I always roll with a GnR approach but I think this year could be the exception. For me the mid pricers are real value this year as they’re mostly proven scorers with just durability the question mark, which is a whole lot different to taking a punt on a mid price breakout player.

        In the event a mid pricer goes wrong and a rookie emerges that I didn’t have already it’s an easy trade that also puts some cash in the pocket to spend elsewhere. I feel I’d rather do that than waste a trade rookie to rookie with no added cash flow from it.

        Man just need the season to start so I can stop changing my team 20 times a day! Aha

        Cheers, all the best for the season.

      WinnerzRGrinnerz · 19/03/2019 at 11:50

      Cheers Keen. Agree that forward rookies aren’t much chop either but I feel whilst their scoring potential isn’t anything to get excited about, the job security in the likes of Setterfield, Parker, pretucelle, Drew, Etc is far higher.

      As a cats fan I love the look of Clarke but can see him getting a couple of games in before being squeezed out by the likes of Tuohy, Kolo and Bews.

      I too am rolling with the Moore/Burgess swing as a safety net either way.

      All the best for the year!

GOODO71 · 19/03/2019 at 00:27

Okay, I think I've narrowed it down to this to finish my team :

Hi folks,

Comments welcome.
D – Simpson, Williams, B Smith, Ridley, Collins, Clark (Duursma, Hore)
M – Macrae, Cripps, Neale, Coniglio, B Crouch, Butters, Constable, Hately (Atkins, B Scott, Hind)
R – Grundy, Goldstein (Clarke)
F – Dangerfield, Heeney, Gray, Billings, Setterfield, Drew (Petrucelle, Parker)

(Most recent changes – brought Gray into the forward line for Burgess and brought Clark into the backline for Whitfield – thought my FWDs were too light on.)
Thoughts – D1-D2.5, M1-4.5, R1-2, F1-3.5 are keepers – I'm hoping Smith, Crouch and Billings can do enough to stay. I'm hoping to get enough cash out of D4-D8 to upgrade to keeper DEFs – provided the byes work out. Similarly, hoping F4-F8 can provide enough cash for bringing in 3 of the top 6-7 fwds. Hoping Crouch can work his way up to a top 12 mid and enough other $ can be generated through M6-M11 to upgrade M6-M8)

83.6k left over – all depends on what comes through the team lists.

Greene will be traded if he fails first few rounds but I think he is a jet. I have 45k left to upgrade someone. Not sure if I should go Taranto or B.Couch..

TelescopicCox · 19/03/2019 at 10:03

Is Walsh a must have? I'm 10K short of going a $117k rookie up to him. Only way to get him is to go Butters > Walsh, or drop Scrimshaw to a cheaper defender (already have Burgess, Hore & Duursma)

    Spifflicator · 19/03/2019 at 10:35

    Yes he is in my opinion. I can see him cracking the $450k barrier so ignore at your peril.

      GOODO71 · 19/03/2019 at 13:14

      Agree on Walsh. I usually avoid those higher price rookies due to lower cash generation, but I can't ignore his potential, especially in a team crying out for some quality to support Cripps in the middle.
      Although I do see the dilemma as Butters looks like a rookie you want/need to have as well (Hinkley has confirmed he will be named rd.1)

wlharris11 · 19/03/2019 at 10:35

Gday Lads, would love some feedback! Bit of an unusual structure but I believe its a good year for that!

145K in the bank.

DEF: Simpson, Williams, Moore, Collins, Scrimshaw, Clark (Duursma, Hore)
MID: Macrae, Cripps, Oliver, Fyfe, Neale, Walsh, Butters, Scott (Constable, Bewley Atkins)
RUCK: Gawn, Grundy (O'Brien)
FWD: Danger, Heeney, Dunkley, Setterfield, Drew, Petrucelle (Burgess, Balta)

Get dissecting!

Spifflicator · 19/03/2019 at 10:45

Alright lets have a crack at this. Going for a cash league win.

D: Laird Hurn Williams Smith Scrimshaw Clark – Duursma Burgess
M: McRae Cripps Coniglio MCrouch Brayshaw Walsh Butters Constable – Bewley Scott Gibbons
R: Gawn English – Bines
F: Danger Heeney Kelly WRioli DMoore Setterfield – Drew Parker

I am banking on the rucks NOT being the predictable pairing everyone has gone with, so this is a calculated gamble but English did everything I needed to see from him in JLT2, so I am hoping for 85+ avg out him before trading up around the byes.

I have gone for Rioli and Moore up forward to back up the solid first 3 picks due to the lack of reliable rookie options. Should things change in this regard then either or both may find themselves out for rookies or a rookie/premo option.

Rookies subject to selection.

(PS – does anyone know why 'Intense debate' login automatically self likes every post? I would really like to turn it off!

    GOODO71 · 19/03/2019 at 13:22

    Good mix of solid selections and a few ballsy PODs. I haven't looked at either English or Rioli at any stage myself, but I can see that these are well considered selections for you, so good luck for the season mate.

      Spifflicator · 19/03/2019 at 13:32

      Thanks Goodo,

      Rioli has been touted by the coaches as moving into a midfield role this season, and he played this position in JLT2 and looked pretty damn good, so i'm hoping for decent breakout to somewhere around 90. Darcy is rookie priced so anything 70+ is acceptable in light of how hard fwd rookies are to find, the other bonus is that he can swing with Burgess in defence.

      That said I would rather start another rookie and move Rioli up to a $450k premo, but I am very doubtful that we will be able to start 2 rookies on field given how poor our options are.

        The Ranger · 19/03/2019 at 17:29

        Been considering the English at R2 selection throughout the preseason Splifficator, glad to see I'm not the only one who thinks it might come off.

      Cheers mate!

    Spifflicator · 19/03/2019 at 13:40

    Hi Ando, my concern here is trying to start with 3 rookies on field in forward line.

    Sure Setterfield is solid, and Drew should be acceptable (if he plays, and remember Wines is due back round 2 or 3, and take his spot) but Balta, Parker and Petrucelle will be lucky to score 30pts IF they play at all.

    You may have to consider bringing in a half decent F4 at the expense of someone like Neale, and putting a BCrouch in there at M5, depending on who gets picked thursday?

      Ando · 19/03/2019 at 14:31

      Thanks mate! Something I'll have to consider.

      Can you get to Gawn? I'd also look at dropping Fort to Bines (loophole) or up to Clark as a possible cash cow. Don't think Fort will play too many games

        SAM · 19/03/2019 at 15:17

        upgraded to Gawn with $79k left still. Possibly looking at downgrading a premium mid to a cash cow of some kind and replacing a rook on the bench with someone like Brayshaw

Brayshaw or M Crouch? Much in it?

    Doc · 19/03/2019 at 16:12

    Both great selections, I've gone with both, Crouch wins on consistency and proved performance but of course is slightly pricier, I'd say not much in it.

Murray · 19/03/2019 at 15:52

Issue 1: Are coach's losing interest in Whitfield??? I dont see him in many teams.

A lot of teams I see are going with one of the big two (Lloyd or Laird) then Williams and Smith, making only 3 defenders & rookies
This can be achieveable because there are enough good rookies in the back line this year.

Issue 2: The big problem is the forwards, very few decent rookie picks on this line, so it might be better to go 3 defenders and 4 premo fwds along with 2 onfield rookies.

What do you think about these 2 issues??

    Doc · 19/03/2019 at 16:11

    1. Poor JLT meant a lot of coaches lost faith in him, but he'll still be a good selection. A lot of coaches deciding to save some $$$ and go Zac Williams at F3 instead, as that money can be used to upgrade the large amount of expensive rookies. He'll be good, just a poor JLT and a lot of options just above or below his price.

    2. Forward Line looking relatively thin this year in all respects, most coaches gone with 4 premos, maybe 1 of those a mid-price risk, plus two rookies, generally Setterfield and Drew

    Sharkmove_King · 19/03/2019 at 16:26

    1.He was All-Australian last year and averaged 100, so some would probably wonder if he can go better than that
    2.Shiel (who was often tagged) has left the club so some would be wondering what effect that will have

    3.GWS have a hard start to the year.

    FWIW I have him on my team and I reckon he can go 105

I want to start with Tom McDonald at F3 but im second guessing myself since i haven't seen him in a lot of teams ~ 2%. Going off 2018 he only scored below 80 twice and has shown he can pump out some big scores when he is on, can someone talk me out of this or is he a good POD?

Rookies subject to change – might swing burgess down back and e.g Hore to Parker depending on rd 1 squads.
Cant go past Grawndy and spending money on proven mids.
Gone light in def and fwds – i think the rookies will provide enough to cover these deficiencies early on.

Let me know your thoughts. Cheers.

Trying something a little different. Notice that the defence rookie depth is far greater than the forward equivalent so changed up the structure to a 2/5/2/5 (On the assumption Williams & Greene are keepers).

Gone with Westhoff in the ruck as an option to swing forward if I’m able to grab Grundy at a lower price.
Cheaper backline as I’ve picked guys who are likely to (at minimum) hold their price, and waiting to nab Lloyd and/or Sicily when they inevitably drop.
Lots of swing players to assist with movements, however plenty of risk with Billings, Moore, and both Crouches..

DavidC · 20/03/2019 at 10:49

Brodie Smith is in 36% of teams. It'll be a bit of a POD move to leave him out. Awkward price and don't see him being a keeper, has value but that's all.

    Ian · 20/03/2019 at 23:07

    Therefore Brodie Smith is NOT in 64% of teams – POD is more to have him than not.

Tkelly and Collins vs Laird and Drew?

Why is nobody picking Witts?

Goaled Fingers · 20/03/2019 at 14:53

I’ve never posted a team publicly before, but here we go!

I only have $15,100 left in the bank, which is significantly less than I like to go with.

Def: Laird, Williams, Smith, Collins, Clark, Duursma (Burgess, Hore)

Mid: Macrae, Cripps, Neale, Coniglio, M.Crouch, Walsh, Butters, Scott (Constable, Bewley, Atkins)

Ruck: Gawn, Goldstein (Bines)

Fwd: Danger, Heeney, Dunkley, Darling, Setterfield, Drew (Petruccelle, Parker)

Rookies subject to change. Gone top heavy in the forwards due to lack of rookie options.

All critiques welcome!

    NudeWombat · 21/03/2019 at 16:22

    Crouch and Coniglio are nice PODs (when compared to most other teams), and seem solid picks.

    What's the thinking behind Darling? Probably won't lose cash on him but not enough upside for mine. You could roll with a Guns n Rookies FWD line and drop Darling for a rookie, thus leaving yourself up with some extra cash if a panic trade needs to happen early season.

    Another idea to free up some cash could be to give in to the Darcy Moore (or J.Elliott) spell instead of Darling to have less cash risk and well… more cash.

    I like it though. If you can back Darling in for a good season, could be worth the risk of having him in, regardless you should compete pretty comfortably.

It’s Jambo and I’m BAAACKK for another year.
Here’s my team:
D: J Lloyd, Laird, K Simpson, Z Williams, J Clark, Hore (S Collins, X Duursma)
M: Cripps, Neale, M Crouch, Viney, Sheed, S Walsh, Butters, Satterfield (Bewley, Gibbons, Ross)
R: Nank, Lycett (Fort)
F: Menegola, D Smith, Mundy, Dunkley, McHenry, Cottrell (Mozzie, M Parker)
With $67,500 remaining. Probably will drop my forward premos to 3 and make either Viney or Sheed another premium. No Dangerfield till midseason. I think it’ll take him a few weeks to warm up to uber primo scores.
I’ll be interested to read your thoughts. Good luck, comrades!

    NudeWombat · 21/03/2019 at 16:25

    Interesting tactics here. Could probably also investigate your option for a 3 premo backline as well as FWD to try and free up some cash for an upgrade. Must be fun playing with all that money you're saving in the Rucks

davo · 20/03/2019 at 20:47

which M6/F3 combo?

1. Rocky and Greene
2. Libba and billings

    Bogdan Rotaru · 21/03/2019 at 00:52


    Greene is too much of an injury/suspension risk. Billings has burned me before though …

Bogdan Rotaru · 21/03/2019 at 00:51

Skinny in defense and fat in the fwd line. Just don't see much value in the fwd line bar the 4 rookies

Def : Lloyd — Z Williams — B Smith — Scrimshaw — Clark — Duursma (Burgess — Hore)
Mid : Macrea — Cripps — Oliver — Neale — Taranto — Walsh — Butters — Constable (Scott — Atkins — Gibbons)
Ruck : Grundy — Goldy (Sweet)
Fwd : Danger — Heeney — Dunkley — T Kelly — Settlerfield — Drew (Balta — Petruccelle)

27k in the bank, Scrimshaw JS is a warry

dcappa · 21/03/2019 at 09:14

DEF- Lloyd, Williams, Smith, Ridley, Duursma, Scrimshaw, (Clark, Hore)

MID- Macrae, Cripps, Treloar, Coniglio, Brayshaw, O’ Meara, Walsh, Butters,
(Constable, Scott, Gibbons)

RUCK- Gawn, Grundy, (Bines)

FWD- Dangerfield, Heeney, Moore, Setterfield, Drew, Petrucecelle, (Balta, Burgess)

RussellRow3 · 21/03/2019 at 10:51

Backline- Laird, Whitfield, Williams, Clark, Scrimshaw, Duursma (Hore, Watson)

Mid- Crippa, Fyfe, Dusty, M.Crouch, Sloane, Brayshaw Walsh, Butters (Constable, Scott, Gibbons)

Ruckmen – Gawn, Goldy

Forward – Danger, Heeney, Billings, Setterfield, Balta, Drew (Petrucelle, Parker)

Gone for value in the midfield. Would love an opinion on Dusty, have 36k in the bank. Dunno whether I should sideways him to a Selwood or Coniglio, or I should change him for a defensive premo, so I can make room for another solid midfield rookie and get rid of one of the dodgy defensive ones. I don't like Billings, either. Cheers

The Rocks · 21/03/2019 at 12:25

The Rocks with $109k left

D: Laird – McGrath – Smith – Milera – Duursma – Clark, Hore, McLennon (could play early and use for VC loop)
M: Macrae – Cripps – Brayshaw – Kelly – Rocky – Libba – Walsh – Butters, Scott, Atkins, Gibbons
R: Gawn – Sauce, Fort
F: Danger – Heeney – Billings – Greene – Setterfield – Drew, Petrucelli, Balta

Hi a couple of quick questions

1. would you prefer Jordan Ridley or Darcy Moore?
2. Libba and Toby Greene or Matt crouch/rocky and Darcy Moore?


    NudeWombat · 21/03/2019 at 16:32

    Moore hogging kick-ins should be a reliable point booster, Ridley just looks… good.

    Make of that what you will. My lack of willpower and restraint has lead to both making their way into my team. fml.

      Marvin · 22/03/2019 at 09:29

      Thanks looks like I might have to get both in. Love the Roy and Hg reference!

Jmac · 21/03/2019 at 13:44

Hey community! My side seems to be forever changing but whats everyones thoughts on this? Went heavier on the fwd line as it seems its going to be harder to find FWD downgrade options throughout the year. Few pods in, but not to out there, also got $106,900 banked for the future of getting gawn in and moving the hoff into my fwd line at some stage. thoughts?

DEF: J.Lloyd, L.Ryan, B.Smith, S.Collins, J.Scrimshaw, X.Duursma (M.Hore, C.Burgess)

MID: J.Macrae, P.Cripps, N.Fyfe, D.Martin, R.Sloane, S.Walsh, Z.Butters, M.Gibbons (C.Constable, B.Scott, T.Atkins)

RUC: B.Grundy, J.Westhoff (J.Sweet)

FWD: P.Dangerfield, I.Heeney, J.Darling, T.Greene, W.Setterfield, J.Petruccelle (W.Drew, M.Parker)

Fritzzzy · 21/03/2019 at 14:41

Would love a few thoughts on my side. The Inner West Earwigs are looking for cup glory this year. We require some assistant coaching flair.

D: Lloyd, Laird, Williams, Smith, Clark, Duursma, Burgess, Hore
M: Macrae, Cripps, Oliver, Brayshaw, B. Crouch, Liberatore, Walsh, Gibbons, Constable, B. Scott, T. Atkins
R: Grundy, Gawn, Bines
F: Dangerfield, Heeney, Moore, Setterfield, Drew, Petruccelle, Balta, Parker

Be brutal.

NudeWombat · 21/03/2019 at 16:15

Every time I login it seems an OK team and then I feel the need to mess with it. This is my current team as it stands but gee wiz I can't seem to stick with just one tactic (my ultimate annual downfall)
