Sorry $50k winning team has arrived. Well maybe top 50k.

I’ve been settle with this team for a week now, just waiting on playing rookies next week.

DEF: Lloyd, Laird, Docherty, Noble, Zerk, Starcevich (Gould, Watson)

MID: Macrea, Cripps, Dunkley, Danger, Oliver, Rowell, Green, Pickett (Brown, McHenry, Robertson)

RUCK: Grundy, Gawn (Comben)

FWD: Whitfield, Martin, Smith, Brander, Rankine, Taylor (King, Budarick)

Thoughts on this side?


Beautiful structure

11 genuine premos plus 2 fallen premos.

Bye structure is slightly off. Changing Danger to a round 14 premo levels it off nicely. Personally I think his scores will go down this year, not only with his advancing age and declining output, but also as Geelong potentially decline. Looking at the ages of your squad, it’s really only him and Martin looking a little past their prime. Martin is probably still going to be top 6 forwards, so is a more certain selection than a breakout, but is possibly overs. Danger maybe not top 10 mid, and again overs.

Forward rookies are concerning and would be the only other weak spot if this team. Having said that, almost every preseason I feel like that but mostly it works out. You can sacrifice a great premo structure by going a little bit more mid price – will make the rookie side look a little less flimsy, but may never get full premium.

I have gone a little more mid priced, but when I look at such a good side like yours, I might need to rethink.

Good job.


Cheers for the feedback KBC.
You’re right with Danger. He’s still 50/50 at this stage.
If I find a cheaper rookie, I’ll bump Danger up to another mid with a better bye structure with the extra $$$$.
Nearly every year I gamble one or two mid pricers and make full premo by years end. Now that I said that I’ll get injuries this year. Lol.


Love the team, very similar to my own. Will obviously change due to rookies not being selected but here goes

DEF: Lloyd, Laird, Docherty, Ash, BZT, Gould (Greaves, Rivers)

MID: Macrae, Neale, Fyfe, Cripps, Oliver, Rowell, Green, Pickett (Starcevich, Robertson, Close)

RUC: Grundy, Gawn (Xerri)

FWD: Whitfield, Martin, Smith, Brander, Cameron, Rankine (Budarick, King)

$2,300 remaining so not much wiggle room at all. Not happy with the B.Close selection however he is a mid/fwd so that helps but unfortunately couldn’t get any other rookies in. Hoping Geelong does what they always do and plays a lot of young kids early


Yes similar there.
Let’s wait till next weeks rookies reveal!


Martin past his prime at 28 ??.. Don’t think so.. IMO this year will be better than his last.. granted it maybe not be as good as 2017..


I am basing this on the analysis that showed that most players prime scoring years are up to 26. After that they tend to decline. When I look at Martin go 2017 117, 2018 103 and 2019 100, I see the same trend observed here. You may be right – he will probably defy the trend and head up again, but you can’t pick em all, so you need something to apply as a filter.

King Arthur

You obviously biased against Collingwood who may well be premiers and your midfield a bit dicey!!Have a result think!!

King Tone

Which other Pie player would you rate to start with?

King Arthur

A fit Treloar, and the reliable and underrated Crisp and maybe Elliott.
Try these and U won't be disappointed.


I would've thought maybe Degoey rather than Elliott due to Elliott being a bit of an injury magnet and Degoey maybe playing 50-50 midfield fwd this year? Reckon Degoey could maybe average in the 90's if that's the case..what do you think Arthur?

King Arthur

Elliott hot to trot!
Get on him!!!!


I've had him in my draft sides in the past, he's great for a week or 2 until he gets injured

King Arthur

Don't live in the past Russty
believe me Elliott will be the reliable go to ball Magpie Magnet on forward line in 2020.Great value and will top 90 pts per game.


Neither of you kings were previously under the name king Lear were you?


Nah mate


Like it. I've got something pretty similar. Structure is nice – I've erred away from Gawn and gone for English (hopefully as a keeper – I reckon he'll be at least top 4 ruck by seasons end). I'm not sold on Danger at the price, but who could be blamed for picking Danger.
Damn man, the more I look, the more I like. Go get 'em.


A few tweaks to go and definately a gamble or two but I'm feeling happy with the structure. Currently –

DEF: LLLLOOOYD, Hurn, Laird, Noble, Starcevich, Brander (Gould, McQuillan)

MID: Neale, Cripps, Titchell, Bont, Cogs, Rowell, Pickett, Robertson ( McHenry, McInerney, Buderick)

RUC: Grawndy (Comben)

FWD: Dusty, Rozee, Brayshaw, Smith, Rankine, King (Taylor, Cameron)

I'm still 50/50 on Titch. I could upgrade to Fyfe or Macrae if I sub Noble with BZT. I like Nobles JS better so….
McQuillan is a tactical donut.


I had Titch in my side up until a few days ago, he went well in the Marsh games even though not out of 2nd gear but in an interview the other day he said himself that he might not be back to his best until later in the season or even next year, to me that meant that he's not completely healed/confident in his leg.

King Arthur

Marsh games are Mickey Mouse games
Avoid them as a guide!!!!


They're all we've got to go on, he hasn't played a game for a year before that, what the Marsh games showed is that he can still play, not how much pain he's in or fragile his leg still feels.
The interview was the main info I needed to not pick him until maybe later in the season.

Shake n bake

I also feel his 111 from 23 touches 14 handballs at 73% was way overs when you see Danger got 116 from 33 touches 17 kicks at 76% both 1goal.


I think I'm pretty settled on this team. The F2 spot has changed all pre-season, taking a risk with Greene, but could change in a couple of days. 54k left in the bank. Thoughts?

DEF: Laird, Houston, Docherty, Noble, Zerk-Thatcher, Brander (Williams, Gould)

MID: Neale, Cripps, Dunkley, Oliver, Coniglio, Rowell, Green, Pickett (Starcevich, Robertson, Budarick)

RUC: Grundy, Gawn (Xerri)

FWD: Dusty, Greene, Steven, Smith, Georgiades, Taylor (King, Rankine)


Solid side Kevdog, much more so than mine haha, only thing I'd probably do would be to swap Georgiades out for Cameron, cause I believe having both him and King in the fwd line means not much scoring and cash growth from both, if Cameron plays, he's gonna do better than both of those two.


I've got a question lads. Which combo is best? Brayshaw and Steven or Dusty and a Rookie?


I'm hoping Brayshaw and Steven is best for me, Dusty is getting older and has started slowly in the past, Taylor might be the rook who scores well but consistency from rookies is the problem.


The GWS injury list is missing Zac Williams. Hopefully we see him named and then know clearly whether Ash is in their best 22


Cumming really stepped up in the Marsh also, he must be in the equation for selection.


I hope so, I've put him in my team!


DEF Laird Doch Witherden Noble BZT Mclennan (Starcevich, Gould)

MID Macare Neale Cripps Titchell Bonte Hately Rowell Green (Pickett Roberston Sharp)

FWD Whitfield TGreene JSteven DSmith Brander Georgiades (Rakine Taylor)
5.7k left in the bank

Was tossing up between Witherden or Roberton –
Swapped Houston out for Witherden and replaced Andrew Brayshaw for Toby Greene
Thoughts for team please Thanks!


Sorry forgot about the ruck*
DEF Laird Doch Witherden Noble BZT Mclennan (Starcevich, Gould)

MID Macare Neale Cripps Titchell Bonte Hately Rowell Green (Pickett Roberston Sharp)

RUC: Grundy & English (Comben)

FWD Whitfield TGreene JSteven DSmith Brander Georgiades (Rakine Taylor)
5.7k left in the bank

Was tossing up between Witherden or Roberton –
Swapped Houston out for Witherden and replaced Andrew Brayshaw for Toby Greene
Thoughts for team please Thanks!


Hi Sam, I think you'd be better off without Witherden there, maybe Ash or Robbo as you said, Withers has gone backwards since his first year and is a fairly mediocre scorer now.
Not sure McLennan plays either, maybe Williams from WCE instead?
Hately's a risky pick for 300K, reckon you could make him a rookie and upgrade English to Gawn if you wanted to, or turn Witherden into a 3 premo backline..just my thoughts mate, good luck for the season.


Good reasoning mate


DEF Lloyd, Houston, Docherty, Noble, Zerk-Thatcher, Brander (Starcevich, Gould)
MID Neale, Kelly, Cripps, Yeo, McCluggage, Rowell, Green, Pickett (Brown, Robertson, Mead)
RUC Gawn, Jacobs (Xerri)
FWD Whitfield, Martin, Brayshaw, Steven, Smith, Taylor (M. King, Budarick)

Tossing up whether to have gawn or grundy (still have 50k spare). And not sure if I'm completely convinced on brayshaw especially considering how stacked my fwd line is with mid prices.


Also Kelly I'm still contemplating, but confident about yeo, think he'll have a big year


Love some feedback. $115k left

Ryan. Houston. Doc. Ash. Zerk. Star. Gould. O’Connor

Neale. Fyfe. Cripps. T Kelly. Coniglio
Rowell. Green. Pickett. Budarick. Robertson. Valente

Grundy. Nic Nat. Xerri

Whitfield. Walters. Greene. Smith. Brander. Rankine
Cameron. King

King Arthur

Looks a good team, but maybe consider the two reliable Magpies, Elliott and Crisp


Yep, you can always count on Elliott to miss at least 6 games per season, when he's not missing every second season.


Hi community,
Am l going crazy and thinking Hurley wld be a good POD? Has scored well in the Marsh series and has been a decent scorer in past years in SC??


I'm tempted but not game atm. Could he be back? He looked good vs Geelong.


I have a good feeling but know if l have the guts to do it


I'd stick with the youth Nick, Zerky Jerky thatcher


Already talking delays on R1 holty…
I doubt the afl could afford to play in empty stadiums either like they are saying.. the money they & clubs would lose on ticket sales food merch etc would be massive & still have to pay officials and what ever other overheads


I'm already recruiting some of the cast of the Walking Dead into my team Holty for when the zombie apocalypse starts, but we'll all be fighting off zombies with unwiped dirty bums lol


Still not 100% settled but I'm getting closer:

DEF: Laird, Doch, Roberton, Noble, Ash, Zerk (Brander, Gould)
MID: Macrae, Neale, Cripps, Oliver, T.Kelly, Rowell, Green, Pickett (McHenry, Robertson, Budarick)
RUC: Grundy, Gawn (Comben)
FWD: Whitfield, Martin, Steven, Smith, Shultz, Taylor (Rankine, King)



Can people please put how much cash they have left in the bank when they post their teams. Hard to give any feedback without it


How about I post my money but not my team?….$84800 πŸ˜‰


Spend the lot. That’s another 40 points


Yeah you're probs right, if I didn't have money left over then I couldn't knee jerk trade the guy I picked out who doesn't perform well the first 2 weeks.


DEF: laird Ryan docherty Nobel zerk Starcevich ( Bwilliams WATSON)

MID: Macrae JKelly Cripps Dunkley Oliver Rowell Green Pickett ( bytel McHenry Robertson)

RUCK: grundy Jacobs (Cameron)

FWD: Whitfield Martin Brayshaw Smith brander Taylor ( king Budarick)

150k bank πŸ™‚
Unsure whether to upgrade brayshaw or go Jacobs up too English… but with English not set to definitely breakout this season they may average the same anyway. Thanks


Maybe trust your gut Darcy and stick with your choices and see how it goes?…you have a good decent starting team.


George Horlin-Smith priced @ $221K? Should have good JS if fit and surely ahead of Ash and Noble for a few more dollars…. Thoughts community, appreciate it.


DPP as well…


Not sure Dee, he's been bangin around the traps for years and never really been close to a good SC pick, I think Ash can be, not sure about Noble yet plus he's a bit expensive.


Where did this Noble fella come from

$215k, more expensive than Rowell. not going to be making much cash


Played 3 games last year as a fill in I think, 52, 54 and 64 and now he's 215K, averages 76 in 2 marsh games..not worth it I feel, I'd rather go with Ash, Zerky and Brander.
Rowell will probably knock out regular tons too, like Walsh last year, don't reckon Noble will.


Hey guys any tips or pointers on my team i think it may be well balanced but would love some opinions

Def: Llyod Crisp
Cerra Cummings
Noble BTZ
BENCH Greaves Gould

Mid: Neale Cripps Bont
Whitfield Martin cog
Rowel Pickett
BENCH green north h Brayshaw

Ruck: Grundy Nic Nat
Bench m Conroy

Forward Degoey Petracca d Smith
Rayner m king brander
BENCH d Cameroon rankie


Hi Fitzy, you need to get Whitfield and Martin into the Fwd line to start with. Lose Rayner for maybe Stevens and free up some cash by going only 5 premium midfielders. Just my opinion.


All thoughts appreciated…

Def – Crisp, Doc, Houston, Roberton, Cumming, BZT (Greaves, Williams)

Mid – Kelly, Macrae, Dunkley, Oliver, Cogs, Rowell, Starc, Pickett (Bytel, Roberston, Sharp)

Ruck – Grundy, Gawn (Xerri)

Fwd – Whitfield, Dusty, MacPherson, Brander, Taylor, King (Budarick, Cameron)

$18,000 Left


Contemplating Grundy to Jacobs the King to Brayshaw, that leaves me $93k in bank.


I love it apart from Crisp. Can you up him to Williams and it would be excellent. IMO.


Any leagues need topping up


Option A – Gawn coniglio Budarick & 5k

Option B – Jacobs Cripps noble & 175k


The top one easy.


rooks subject to change……

DEF: Laird, Houston, Cumming, Noble, Zerk,Brander (Starcevich, Gould)

MID: Macrae, Neale, Cripps, Fyfe, Dunkley, Rowell, Green, Pickett (Bianco, Robertson, Budarick)

RUC: Grundy, Gawn (Comben)

FWD: Whitfield, Martin, Steven, Smith, Rankine, Taylor (Cameron, King)

Shake n bake

I have a feeling no crowds at the footy.


that is what is happening overseas

Shake n bake

Maybe no footy at all!


I see footy happening with no crowds until players catch it, then it's all over until it's not threatening anymore.


Will be interesting to see how they handle it.
There isn't much wriggle room wrt to the schedule, as the T20 World cup starts mid Oct so if they want to play in the major stadiums ie MCG they have to finish early Oct.


New league created for JR crew. Only join if you're a fair dinkum Supercoach tragic, and will stay involved till the end. Cheers.
League code 464954


Thanks. Just joined. Sick league.




DEF: laird Ryan docherty zerk Starcevich brander ( Bwilliams WATSON)

MID: Macrae JKelly Dunkley Oliver Coniglio Rowell Green Pickett ( bytel McHenry Robertson)

RUCK: grundy Gawn ( Xerri)

FWD: Whitfield Martin Brayshaw Smith Budarick Taylor ( king Cameron )

5k bank

I’m not sold coniglio actually gone quiet cold on him drops too many 60-80s but don’t know how to fix it..


i think most good players will have a few bad games. Coniglio has gone under 70 3x in last two years, can't see it being a habit. His last time he gave away 2 50m frees, thats probably 20pts just there.

That was offset by a 207, 130 and a 158 in his last 5 games.

This year he is clearly under valued. his average last year was 101 from 15 games, but he scored ZERO in his last injury game. If you take that away his average last year was 108.4, about where Oliver's average was and his price is $593k. Coniglio is at a $45k discount. He looks like a 110+ average player and that puts him the top 10 midfielders, all priced over $600k.


This is a great team, but will be a popular option. Stick with Cogs. Ryan is a good POD. Brayshaw worries me but it's not meant to be easy. I'm going Butler(St.k) as my mid priced fwd, I think he'll see more ball at the Saints. IMO.


You could try McCluggage instead of Cogs, could be a big year for him…at worst 100 ave I reckon.


You should keep Cogs, sell Kelly and buy McCluggage. Spare change can up a rookie or a mid- pricer. I've got them both and am sticking with them. I was Dunc.


Time to play Devils Avacado.

The argument for not going set and forget Rucks

Im going back to my usual ways, going with a risky R2

I’ve had TBC, Lobbe, Lycett, Sandilands in previous seasons before going the set and forget Gawn last year. The TBC year I had top 1000 finish and the Lobbe year a 56th place finish. Last year, not so good.

Nothing against Gawn, but I just don’t like having no flexibility in a whole line. Can always get Gawn later, probably will, but might not if someone else emerges or is a better option. We don’t know with the big fellas, rule changes etc

You wouldn’t lock in your 8 midfielders at the start of the year? on paper they are easy to pick, but there is usually an emerging star we didn’t see. Need flexibility to get them in, but if no room can’t.

Same in the rucks. Good chance it will be Grundy and Gawn, but it might not be. NicNat might start playing 85% TOG, Sauce has a decent midfield at his feet, English breaks out a year early, Naismith is 6’9 and can actually play

Even if Gawn ends up R2, there is simple economics to think about. Gawn has one bad game, efffects his price for 3 weeks, get him cheaper.

I could have gone Gawn over Grundy, but the % ownership of Grundy would mean a greater risk if I didn’t have him.

English, NicNat and Jacobs all interest me for R2. Ultimately it is Sauce that will get the nod based on his price. $350k cheaper than Gawn

Money saved will get Sicily instead of a overpriced rookie, points gain straight away (Sicily will our score a rookie by more than Gawn will outscore Jacobs) plus potential for Jacobs to gsin $150k+ in value, much better than an expensive rookie

What do you reckon fellas, thanks fellas.


My Non-Gawn Team

Lloyd, Laird, Docherty, Sicily, Starcevic, Brander (Watson, Gould)

Macrame, Neale, Cripps, Oliver, Coniglio, Rowell, Pickett, Robertson (Rivers, Mahoney, Sharp)

Grundy, Jacobs (Conroy)

Whitfield, Martin, Devon, Steven, Rankine, Taylor (King, Budarick)

$28k left

11 Uber’s including the most expensive from each line. All low injury risk an old fellas.

4 midpricers. All Fallen Premiums. Breakout players are just too hard to predict. Always had good success with fallen premium midpricers, Brodie and Williams perfect examples last year.

I never owned Docherty, have now. Will finish year as top 3 defender, no question

7 on field rookies, Rowell only non-cheapie.

Rookies job is to make cash, expensive rookies don’t. It is just simple maths.

My break-glass is Lloyd down to Houston if I need cash.


Hi mate, the main diff I can see is an extra defender from most Gawn having teams, if Sicily averages 90's ish, maybe a bit higher, and someone like Zerky Thatcher averages 75-85 and Jacobs averages 85-95 and Gawn is 120 ish.
What I mean is, I'm not sure if there's enough points gained to warrant choosing Sauce when Gawn has been known to go freakin nuts (140+ scores)..Sauce can't do that, I think Zerk, Noble or Ash could get closer to Siciflog's average than Sauce could to Gawny's…hope you can see what I Gawn is a weekly captain's option too.


Not sure Zerky averages 75-85. If he does he has the Rising Star all sewn up. Walsh averaged 86 last year. McGrath and Mills were lucky to average low 70’s in their rookie years. Naughton averaged 57 his first year.

The rookies might have a few 75-85 games, and the 25-35’s are quickly forgotten about. They need to be pretty special to be near 70.

Zerky will average 55 maybe.

Let’s say we average Gawn and Sicily’s last 2 seasons to come to their expected score this year. Gawn is 127 and Sicily is 99.

Jacobs won’t get back to his 2014 and 2015 days, but is average of 2 years ago of 97 is achievable but I’ll take 92

127 + 55 = 182
99 + 92= 191

Let’s say they average the above over first 7 rounds.

Zerky would have increased $119k
Jacobs would have increased $165k
Gawn decreased $38k
Sicily increased $12k


Fair enough mate, it's a gain I guess, have you looked into how much Mumford still playing might affect Sauce's scores? I do think Ash could probs average more than Thatcher…his disposal efficiency in his 2 Marsh games was pretty impressive, not sure exactly what it was but it was fairly good.


I’ll look at cheap rookies first. They make more cash. The games all about making cash and getting around $13mil team value by the byes.

Even st $13mil (allow $1.2 for bench) only averages $559k per player. Seeing we will have a few hopefully over $600k, we just run out of money to make those final premium upgrades.

Easier to make cash earlier while there are still plenty of rookie places in team. As they are replaced by keepers, less rookies to earn cash

The expensive rookies don’t give you anywhere near the same Return on investment as a cheapie.

Defence seems short on cheap rookies this year, that’s why I’ve gone 4 premiums deep in defence, get rookies on the other lines


The Starcevich DPP with Rivers in midfield will be very handy this year. Gives rookie loopholes across two lines to get the best out of our rookies this year. Melb got quite a few late games


I see where you're coming from, it's either cheaper rooks who make some money and an extra premium, or more expensive rooks who hopefully score better than cheap rooks but might only average 55 to 60 ish, these guys make us less money and could get stuck with them cause they're not scoring well or making dosh.
There is the other thing you didn't mention though…the cheap rookies who appear during the year, assuming there is a year?…lol
Jumping on the right ones of those rooks can be a nice moneymaker and keep things turning over.
I do see your point though and might change my strategy now to only one expensive rook in the backline…cheers Derek.


We can only pick those who are playing. If they are more expensive, so be. But I’d be finding an extra $60k (Lloyd to Laird type) and getting Robertson instead of Zerk, Noble etc

With so few rookies, the ones that play will all have very high ownership


I think there will be plenty rookies coming during the year.

Our preseason we had fellas like Mead, Hibberd, Goddard, Bianco, McHenrey, Cavarra, McAdam, Maguinnis, Schoenberg


Mummy won’t play. Too much talent at GWS to fit him in


No difference in trades as Sicily a keeper

The other big difference if Gawn or Jacobs get injured. If Jacobs, easy trade up to Gawn, upgrade done.

If Gawn goes down, Goldy? And stuck with him all year. Déjà vu

John posted what they thought Rd1 teams “might” be, if their right it appears we’ll all be spending up for our starting rookies. Here are the rookies…

D: Noble, Ash, BZT, McAsey, Starcevich, Brander, Williams
M: Rowell, Anderson, Serong, Green, Pickett,
R: CCJ, Jackson
F: Davis, Rankine, King, Georgiades, Taylor, Pickett, Sturt

E: Robertson, Watson, Budarick, Sparrow, Bonar, Stephens, Crocker, Frampton, Cameron, Brown, Weightman, Williamson, RCD,


Great info.

I thought I say Budarick was going to be playing


Yes I saw that Tweet as well about Rankine and Budarick, like I said these are just mock Rd1 teams have come up with, so I’d suggest probably scrapping some of the Gould/Rivers/Bianco/McHenry types for now and making our teams a little more realistic, at least then Rd1 announcements won’t hit as hard-always easier to downgrade than scratching around for cash.


Everyone will have the same rookies this year.

The skill will come from the premiums.

Last year it was Neale, Fyfe, Lloyd, Dunkley who started well. I had Merret, Crouch, Laird and Mundy


Have a Draft league $20 entry, winner takes all. One spot left, draft tonight at 7pm EST (Sat 14/3). Email [email protected] to join


Almost there. $1100. Appreciate any comments. Laird Sicily Docherty Brander Noble Zerk-Thatcher Starcevich Watson Neale Mitchell Bontempelli Oliver Coniglio Rowell Green Pickett Robertson Brown Budarick Grundy Jacobs Xerri Whitfield Martin Rozee Steven Smith Taylor Rankine King Good luck all.Cheers.


Solid team. I worry about Sicily with McEvoy playing his new defensive role another year smarter. One Fwd off 'set and forget' if the mid Pricer's work out. Mitchell early?? IMO.


Thanks for the comments, SCglory. Must admit immediately after posting the above I changed Mitchell and Noble to T Kelly and Roberton plus 25K. Think they might be safer bets and score similarly. The cash could be handy as well. Sicily was down a bit last year. I expect him to go 100+ this year and be a top six defender. Don't expect McEvoy will lower Sicily's output. Cheers.


Hi guys thoughts on Darcy Macpherson having a break out season and being a POD played very well during Marsh and had a decent 80+ from 22 games last season…


I'm banking on it Johnny, you never know though with these things, breakout predictions are notoriously difficult to call.


Yes 80 at the GCS is like 90 anywhere else. I liked him after last year. I was spewing when he played so well in the Marsh. In 9% of teams, so still a POD.


Suns need to be better than last year. If they are, yes he will improve as they improve.

I’m not that sure they will.

They have a very young list and they will be looking for roles for all of them. Weller has to fit in the guts as well as the other new boys.

He might find himself playing a different role later in the year


Big gamble as he's playing in a below average team. I prefer others ahead of him for a breakout season.


The Krak3nKatsfor 2020 if the season goes ahead
DEF : LL cool J , Laird, Sicily, Docherty, BZ-T, H.Young. Bench: Watson and Williams

MID: Neale, Cripps, Oliver, Pendels, Cogs, Rowell, Green, Pickett. Bench: Brown, Robertson, Budarick

RUC: Grundy, Sauce. Bench: Comben

FWD: Whitfield, Martin, Brayshaw, Brander, Rankine, Taylor E. ,Bench: Cameron, King

Lots of thoughts went into this but the Fridge was convincing any feed back welcomed

Coin Remaining a lazy $146,200
PS Pendles LL Cool J and Taylor up front are not locks


Tricky team to comment on. IMO, put Brander back for Young and Sicily to Houston which will free up more cash to squeeze Smith into your Fwd line for balance. Pendles is a POD. Ross and Worpel will probably avg the same as him this year for $36000 less though??


Thanks for the comments mate, Word from the West is Brander will be in top 22 and H. Young will play intercept role due to Hills injury.
Sicily is there as place holder atm, I will look at the trades you suggested. Pendles became Fyfe since I posted team. Coin Left $54,500


Which Smith? Baily Smith (WB) $415,500 or Devon Smith (ESS) $336,800


Devon sorry.


Pendles has been self isolating for 3 days now. Probably won't make R1.


This question seems too easy;

Lloyd & Starcrvich


Houston & Robertson


Otherwise known as Dylan Roberton with a T and not an S…lol, and Houston I'd choose, You'll be able to pick up Lloyd for cheaper no doubt, and Starcevich might not average too big, 60-ish maybe. I reckon Robbo could get back to 80-90 average if all goes well and his Heart machine doesn't stuff up.
You said you were concerned about Houston's lockdown role though, you'd have to think if he averaged 89 last year and is pure mid this year, and not a tagger, he could go 95 or more maybe.


Marsh 2 was odd. He played half a game apparently as planned, but spent most of the time chasing the Bont around

I think the midfield time is genuine, I don’t think Ebert or Gray will be taking much away and Rozee will be running around the wings. Maybe when Wines is back could change, but a defender playing full time in the guts should be SC gold

I didn’t start Lloyd last year and still feel the pain

Robo was a near premium a couple of years ago. Anyone who can average 95 and play 22 games is welcome in my team


Yeah it is a bit painful not starting with Lloyd, I've done that most years and it always stings, speaking of defenders playing fulltime guts this year, Brodie Smith is doing that, will make him and Laird score more I reckon, I don't have the guts to pick both though.
Wonder if Doedee coming back soon might also affect Laird's scores, I'm hoping Laird averages 100 + this year.
I'm going with Robbo too, can't go wrong for that price really unless he has another health issue.
Are you definitely going with Jacobs?..I was looking at his scores from a few years back, he was pretty good ..lots of tons.


Derek's thought process on Sauce Jacobs convinced me that's why I put him in team above Gwan.

I have been out of SC for 4 years due to living in an NRL town very little AFL coverage and match timings on Hi light reply.


You should try living in Sutherland shire in 2016.


Yeah mate. Got Sauce locked in at R2.

For me it isn’t about the cash, $350k is a nice warchest. And although there is between $150k to $200k to be saved by starting Jacobs and switching to Gawn later, for me it’s about the flexibility.

What if Gawn isn’t R2? Jackson May demand ruck time and they share the job. By locking in your whole line early there is no option but to hold.

As you know, big fellas can get injured. If Gawn goes early, only option is to trade, to who? Goldy? Then you stuck with Goldy. Happened to me last year when he was injured round 15 and missed round 16, traded to Goldy.

If Jacob get injured, oh well, time to upgrade to Gawn.

Jacobs isn’t my favourite player, even when he was at his peak. But you have to recognise value when you see it. Priced cheaper than Brayshaw and about the same as Devon, if you got a 90+ out of either you would be happy, Sauce should give you that easy (as long as Mummy stays away). In a perfect plan, he will give us 95 ave.

It wasn’t until Marsh 2 and there was no sign of Mummy, I was happy to go with him. Mummy is a break glass in case this year.

Worse case, starting Jacobs will let us see what other cheap rucks appear. Williams, Naismith, Cameron, and there might be a downgrade option instead, ie ROB last year


I think I'm getting on the Sauce train Derek, team looks too good with all that extra money spent elsewhere, it just allows for so many other options and fewer rookies on field.


Btw it could be Grundy missing out and Gawn at R1

But the % ownership of Grundy will really hurt if I’m wrong

Loose Man

Structure is right, I think BUT can Danger go around again? How many forward mid-pricers become keepers? How many defence rookies actually play?

Def: Sicily Doherty Roberton Ash BZT Brander (Watson Williams)
Mid: Neale Cripps Dunk Danger Cog R/G/P (Robertson Sharp Budarick)
Rucks: Grundy Gawn (Conroy)
Fwd: Whitfield Martin Lynch Steven Smith Rankine (Taylor O’Connor)

Loose Man

Apologies to Doch for the missing c


I like it, but I think Lynch is one too many forward midpricers

Danger will do ok. No Kelly to take points. I’m not with Danger, Oliver is better value.


I'm with Derek. Take out Lynch for Cameron? and get a semi premo Def for better balance. IMO.


What are your thoughts on the below team? I have add whitefiled n steven in my mids to swing them fwd once my rookies fatten up in price…Good or bad move?

Def: Laird, Doc, Roberton, nobile, Zerk Brander. Bench: Gould and Towey
Mid:Neale J kelly Bont, whitefiled, cogs steven rowell gree. Bench Pickette, Robertson sharp
Rucks: Grundy n Gawn
FWD: dusty green MaPherson, Smith Rankie Taylor Bench: Mahony and Cameron


i like the Grundy pick


I like the Macrae, Whitfield picks.


Two quality comments. Any wonder there's stuff all teams posted anymore. Thanks kevwal.


Hi Community, with the bye rounds looking likely to be axed, why not have a quick comp to see who can get the highest Projected Rd1 score, I have managed to get it to 1920pts (with Grundy as captain). Anything better out there?


Think I've gone higher before Kev , you'd need to Put guys like Snelling and Watts in though.
I'm actually sitting on a 1932 prediction with my regular starting team, and no silly ones brought in.


Why can it all they need to do is have unlimited trades and three trades per round.
14 team leagues,play 13 games and four rounds for finals. Six team final.upper and lower finals.
Simple really.
I feel this would be interesting as it changes it up.


Hi Guys if you are a high finishing player this might be of interest to you

The below AFL FANTASY league has just been created for players that have finished in the top 3000 in Supercoach or AFL Fantasy.

League of Gentleman

I have finished top 1000 over the last couple years and am looking for players of similar playing ability and experience


Last minute to join league!
League code: 267277

Stupid Coach

Greetings all.

Thank you for all the work that has been done over the summer. It has been awesome reading.

My current team (depending of whether Round 1 actually goes ahead and rookies to be named) is as follows:

B: Lloyd, Williams, Stewart, Doch, Zerk, Towey, Gould, Watson
M: Macrae, Neale, Fyfe, Cripps, Bont, Rowell, Starcevich, Pickett, Robertson, Rivers, Close
R: Grundy, Sauce, Cameron
F: Whitfield, Martin, D Smith, Georgiadies, King, Combden, Budarick, O'Connor

I am generally happy with my team (which is a first!!) and have $51K in the bank. However, not sure whether to stick with Williams/Stewart or swap one of them for Hurn. Probably will be easier if Williams is not named in Round 1.

In relation to the midfield, should I stick with Macrae, Neale, Fyfe, Cripps and Bont or should i replace one of them with Tim Kelly (still spewing that he is only a midfielder this year).

Appreciate any comments/feedback as always and looking forward to the season, if it starts tomorrow night


I think your fwd line is your weakest link. I'd trade out Z Williams bring in Noble, trade out Georgiadiieaidisisisios replace with Heeney. There's doubt over Z Williams fitness and with his injury history, he's off limits for me.

Your midfield premo's are good, not sure I would have two def/mid rookies on the one line (Starcevich & Rivers). Green from GWS is a likely starter round 1, maybe do some shuffling to get him in.

Good luck with Sauce, if it works you and everyone that selected him will be ahead of the pack.



I have a few spots available in my league if you would like to join. Its a top 200 league as well so very competitive. League code is 813696
