Is this the perfect SuperCoach team?

Published by Trigger Happy on

Happy new Supercoach peeps! 

Yep SC is open for 2020. 

BBL helped to partially fill the void but is a poor second cousin compared to the real thing. 

Not sure how many of you have been playing along at home but the Phantom has completed a review of every team over summer and has listed each player accordingly in a Supercoach form guide in order of significance for 2020. 

So I thought it would be a bit of fun to see what a team would look like if you took each selection made by the Phantom for each team in order of SC significance.  

Refer below for the top 3 for each team.  

So here we go. 

I have called the team the Phantom Menace

If we pick up the phantom’s first selection for each team this is what it looks like. The only exception is I have not put in Todd Goldstein as Brodie Grundy and Max Gawn are on field so it would be waste to have Todd sitting at R3 on the bench. So I moved down to the next selection for North which is Aiden Bonar. 

I know a couple of guys are under an injury cloud but in this exercise they form part of the team purely based on supercoach significance for 2020. As you can see the top pick from each team uses $8.2M of the $10M salary cap. But powerful ruck and midfield and value picks in the forward line and defence with the ruck and forward line already filled on field. 

Not a bad looking team huh? 

Good way to get around the byes with is a selction from the 18 teams? 

Now it gets a little tricky as we only have $1.8M to play with and have 12 spots to fill. 

So I have added any cheaper options with the Phantoms second pick for each team as to add Cripps or Danger in the midfield for example would blow the salary cap. 

So out of second selections there are 3 spots in defence so in comes Dylan Roberson and Stephen Hill. 1 spot left on ground in the midfield which is filled by Matt Rowell and Miles Bergan takes the first bench spot in the forward line. 

This now leave one spot in defence and the benches with just over $1M remaining. 

So now we apply the same principle as above based on the Phantom’s 3rd pick for each team. Selecting players who can fit in the remaining salary cap. 

The final spot on field is filled by Hayden Young with Will Gould filling one of the spots on the bench. Hibberd and Cockatoo fill two of the midfield bench spots with cockatoo creating a DPP with the forward line and Pickett fills the final spot on the forward bench. 

This leaves 3 bench spots but only $330k remaining salary cap. As rookies are at least $118k this doesn’t leave enough cash to realistically fill the remaining spots. 

So I have swapped Pickett to Max King to fill the rest of the team. These rookies may change depending on selection for Round 1. 

So behold the finished product with a lazy $4,900 left! 

So after all that you have a pretty impressive looking team there Mr Phantom! 

I may even run with this one myself to see how it pans out over the season though Titch is looking unlikely to play round 1.  

What do you reckon community should I run with the team above? 

Give us a shout out in the comments 😊 

Gone to my happy place be back in a few ….

Is Chayce Jones really an option? Kelly and Roberton wouldn't be popular.Roberton just needs one heart episode to be out for the year.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/01/2020 at 20:19

    Phantom rates him. He was a first rd pick and a gun jnr in the mids. Been training with the midfield as adelaide a bit one paced. Clean with his hands and disposal. If starts in midfield great value, touted as potential break out.

    Maybe ask BVC his take on the kid.

    I hope kelly and robbo aren't popular be gr8 pods!

    Robbo bit of wait and see but if plays proven point scorer.
    #2 at the saints according to the phantom. πŸ˜‰

      JohnDJ59 · 29/01/2020 at 20:36

      I'm thinking about C.Jones at F4, instead of Steven or D.Smith, to save a bit of cash.

        TRIGGA HAPPY · 29/01/2020 at 21:08

        I think he could be Mr breakout.

          JohnDJ59 · 30/01/2020 at 10:45

          Sure hope so Trigga, could solve a few problems in the fwd line.

Seeker · 23/01/2020 at 18:26

Swap out Titch for Dunkley, the Dogs 2nd pick and you go an exceptional team

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/01/2020 at 20:21

    Was amazed how the team started to form based on the form guide!

    Yeah reckon Titch will be under done so dunks, Cripps or Danger are options.

SC_Kev7 · 23/01/2020 at 19:02

Good areas, Trig. Interesting exercise. We all have our thoughts on players but structure wise there’s plenty we can take away from this.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/01/2020 at 20:27

    Cheers Kev.

    I thought would blow the salary cap as thought the phantom would select all the excy players in the form guide.

    But with rooks like mead, Rankine, Pickett as #1 in the form guide for their team allowed me to pick 18 with cash to spare.

    Team picked itself only had 3 picks at the end which were at my discretion on the bench.

    Really like it and will probably be my rd 1 team if some of the rooks perform in Marsh series. <img draggable="false" role="img" class="emoji" alt="😁" src=""&gt;

The Ranger · 23/01/2020 at 19:54

Love ya work Trigga,
Ballsy team to start with.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/01/2020 at 20:30

    Cheers mate.

    Virtually formed itself.

    Thanks Mr Phantom. πŸ™Š

Shake n bake · 23/01/2020 at 20:07

To all that sent me invitations to join their league, I’ll definitely get on to it hopefully in the coming days as im up north. I’ll also hope the teams included in up there cazaly will save a spot as l will also get that up and running next week.

    BrownlowBoy · 23/01/2020 at 20:26

    Love that league

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/01/2020 at 20:30


    hedski · 23/01/2020 at 23:13

    Yes Shaker, yes πŸ‘

    JohnDJ59 · 25/01/2020 at 15:15

    Hi Shake, I'm afraid Holy Grail filled up fairly quickly, since I put it up, so a lot of players that were in it last year and received invitations on Wednesday at 8.15pm missed out if they weren't quick enough. I have one spare spot in TheSonsOfAnarchy League 474982 to make up for you missing out if you are interested.

      Shake n bake · 25/01/2020 at 22:34

      Only got home tonight John I’ll have a look tomorrow. To all the other invites l just jumped in πŸ€—

        JohnDJ59 · 25/01/2020 at 23:09

        Very good Shake, one spot left, I'll keep it open for you for now, but there are still a few from last year that haven't joined and if one of them take the final spot, I can't really kick them out.

    Shake n bake · 25/01/2020 at 22:36

    hey Neil code for A Graders didn’t work??

      Shake n bake · 26/01/2020 at 12:37

      Worked now Neil πŸ‘Œ

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/01/2020 at 20:29

Amazing how it all come together using the selections.πŸ˜‰

That's two votes for Dunks firming for a starting position. πŸ‘

Patch · 23/01/2020 at 20:29

This team is way too heavy in defence. Needs one fewer premo πŸ˜›

This is stellar stuff mate.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/01/2020 at 20:39

    Doesn't lloyd count for 2? πŸ™Š

      Interesting that happen to you Trigga, I've had a few turn up in my junk mail, as have some that I sent invites to. Could be a reason for some of my leagues are low on turn out if they don't check the junk mail.

      Shake n bake · 26/01/2020 at 18:21

      Hey Trigga did u get my code 145829? Love to have u back.

Hi Trigga, I wondered who The Phantom Menace was in my leagues, now I know, that was a very interesting exercise and came up with some players I hadn't considered.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 26/01/2020 at 21:51

    Thanks Jd.

Players that are joining TheSonsOfAnarchy, please don't since it is an invite only league and the remaining spots are for players from last year that have an invite. Players joining Rogue Traders could you let me know on one of my threads who you are, or ask if you can join first. Players that join uninvited will be booted out.

    Chop Buster · 02/02/2020 at 18:01

    Stop posting your codes in a public space ya spud

John mate, Why don't you just send out invites to who you want in your league ?, Thanks Trig I got your email / invite ,I'm in again

    JohnDJ59 · 27/01/2020 at 22:54

    Hi dbb, I noticed you missed out on Holy Grail, did you get the invite, I sent them out 8.15pm last Wednesday. At least you managed to get into the sons league. I also put invites out on this forum and named the people I was inviting. I don't mind people asking if they can join, in fact I like that. It's the ones that jump in because they see the code, that give me the [email protected]#%s, those ones are now getting turfed as soon as I see them.

      Shake n bake · 28/01/2020 at 19:42
