Cumming thumbs up

Lukosius thumbs down

    Patch · 11/03/2020 at 22:25

    No thumbs down on JR, Dukes – all about the positives here πŸ˜›

    I'm pro Cumming

      Patch · 11/03/2020 at 22:25

      that was not how I should have phrased this. this is family website oh dear

NoLanguage96 · 10/03/2020 at 23:08

Coniglio or Shuey? It's one of them for M5

    Mick · 11/03/2020 at 10:02

    Cogs. By 100 miles

      NoLanguage96 · 11/03/2020 at 10:05

      He is in there at the moment. Will be hard to shift

    TommyC99 · 11/03/2020 at 17:28

    Cogs by the length of flemington straight

    Lekdog · 12/03/2020 at 08:33


GreendaleFC · 10/03/2020 at 23:09

Right now my team has 7 players between 150k and 400k and I don't like it. These rookies better start appearing soon.

DEF: Lloyd, Houston, Docherty, Roberton, Cumming, Zerk-Thatcher, (Starcevic, Gould)

MID: Macrae, Dunkley, Whitfield, Oliver, Smith, Rowell, Green, Pickett, (McHenry, Robertson, Budarick)

RUCK: Grundy, Gawn, (Cameron)

FOR: Martin, MacPherson, Petracca, Steven, Brander, Rankine, (Taylor, King)

    Tibor · 11/03/2020 at 09:23

    A lack of rookies is not necessarily a bad thing. If it makes the mid prices relevantly again then that’s surely good, makes things a bit more interesting.

    I really like what you have here. Nice little bonus getting both Gawn and Grundy.

      Browncow · 11/03/2020 at 12:01

      I agree – like this team. Some ubers, some breakouts and making the most of what is available this year.

    Patch · 11/03/2020 at 22:26

    Don't hate it Greeny! That Dev Smith in the middle?

      GreendaleFC · 12/03/2020 at 21:09

      Yep, team has changed a little now to be a bit more bye friendly. Sucks that Grundy and Gawn share the same bye again.

NoLanguage96 · 10/03/2020 at 23:34

Team as it stands guys would love some feedback.

B – Daniel, Hurn, Houston, Doc, Young, Brander (Gould, O'Connor)
M – Neale, Fyfe, Cripps, Bont, Cogs/Shuey, Rowell, Pickett, Budarick (Bianco, McGuinness, Mead)
R – Grundy, O'Brien (Cameron)
F – Whitfield, Dusty, Steven, Smith, Georgiadis, Taylor (King, Mahony)

$19k left

    GreendaleFC · 10/03/2020 at 23:47

    Personally not a fan of Hurn. Last year was his best ever season, and I think he can only be on the way down considering that he is 32 years old and that he had some hamstring issues late last year. I think the likes of Lloyd and Sicily are safer.

    I think Patch is right in saying that Gawn is a must-have.

    Also I'd expect those rookies to change a lot. You might need to upgrade some of them to the more expensive rookies. We'll wait and see.

      NoLanguage96 · 11/03/2020 at 10:06

      Thanks mate! I see your point RE age but also his game is perfectly suited to SC, few things to think about might end up swapping him to Lloyd. Disagree on Gawn too many risks for 700k but we'll see. Rooks are subject to change

      Patch · 11/03/2020 at 22:28

      A fellow Gawn-lover! There are dozens of us! Although I don't hate Hurn – he's overpriced but barring long-term injury will be in the top eight for points scored by season's end.

      Don't love the rookies in this side above but the bones of it are excellent

    TommyC99 · 11/03/2020 at 17:43

    Yup i also don't really like Hurn. I was lucky enough to start with him last year and he was amazing, but hes scores drifted off after round 10 as well as missing 3 games through injury. I think he should be top 8 defender again but at 560k you're probably paying overs.

    Lekdog · 12/03/2020 at 08:35

    Not sure How you’ve afforded everyone but I like this side!

      NoLanguage96 · 12/03/2020 at 15:39

      Thx Lek!

      I actually just made a few changes interested to hear your thoughts. Hurn and Steven out for Lloyd and two pricier rooks (Zerk and Green) and went O'Brien to English.

      B – Lloyd, Daniel, Houston, Doc, Zerk, Brander (Gould, O'Çonnor)
      M – Neale, Fyfe, Cripps, Bont, Cogs, Rowell, Green, Pickett (Starcevich, Robertson, Budarick)
      R – Grundy, English (Cameron)
      F – Whitfield, Dusty, Smith, Georgiades, Rankine, Taylor (Xerri, King)


Billioux · 11/03/2020 at 00:42

Nice work guys. Cheers.

    Patch · 11/03/2020 at 22:28

    Thanks mate! <3

    Lekdog · 12/03/2020 at 08:35

    Cheers mate

Dayz · 11/03/2020 at 01:15

G'day guys, after a lot of reading, thought and changes, I think I have crafted (or at least think I have) a decent team. Open for opinions and suggestions so feel free to comment. Here it is as it stands at the moment:

DEF: Laird, Sicily, Docherty, Ash, BZT, Starcevich (Williams, Gould)
MID: Neale, Fyfe, Kelly, Bont, McCluggage, Rowell, Green, Pickett (McHenry, Robertson, Budarick)
RUC: Grundy, Goldy (Xerri)
FWD: Martin, Greene, MacPherson, A. Brayshaw, Brander, Rankine (Cameron, Taylor)

Now just a few things. In DEFENCE, I like Laird and he has been a staple of my team for years, and his preseason says he will continue with that form. Sicily and Docherty are guns who will work into the season and be quite consistent. Not much the say about the rookies, pretty stock standard, although almost went Cumming instead of Ash, but feel a few $$ short.

In the MIDFIELD, I really like Neale, reckon he will be in Brownlow contention this year. As for Fyfe and Bont, both locks for me given their high ceilings and ability to break tags. Kelly I was unsure about but have always been huge on him, when he's fit. I was unsure about him, but then saw him in the State of Origin game and boy did he look good.Now, McCluggage.Been building over the pat couple of seasons, and ended last year very well. Can easily see him averaging 105+ this season, and like him a lot as a POD. I actually knew Rowell for years as I did Athletics with him and we were pretty good mates, so obviously have to chuck him in along with every man and his dog. Other rookies and again standard.

RUCKS. I don't like Gawn's lack of fitness. Prefer to go to Goldy as R2 and then upgrade if necessary, as Goldy will likely ruck alone and looks in good nick. Grundy needs no explanation.

FORWARDS. Despite not having Whitfield, I really like him and am trying to work a way to squeeze him in, so no need to lecture me on not having him. Dusty looks in good form and hopefully will start the season well. Really like Greene. Played well in both preseason and State of Origin, and when not suspended and injured is an ABSOLUTE GUN, so lock for me. MacPherson, like McCluggage, is probably going to have a breakout season. Looking at his preseason form, along with last year's finish, he should easily average 100+ and end up in the top 10 forwards. I went Brayshaw over Smith, just because Brayshaw is younger and is still improving a lot. Got 94 from 60% TOG and 100+ in preseason. If both were full games, that's two 100+ for a $390k player. And finally, the rookies are again a mixed bag, but just going for job security and those likely to play round 1.

    Derek · 11/03/2020 at 11:34

    Team looks pretty good

    Mcluggage ave 105 isn’t good enough for a prime midfield position

    I like the Toby pick. GWS are going to be good this year and he will kick bags

    Have you thought about Jacobs instead of Goldy? Cash saved will get you Whitfield

      Dayz · 14/03/2020 at 23:32

      Actually put Jacobs in there just today, which allowed me to get Whitfield in. Whilst it is a risk, his scoring potential is just too good to leave out.

    Patch · 11/03/2020 at 22:30

    I rate a lot of these selections, Dayz, and love the Truck over Steven pick.

    Don't love Goldy over Gawn but at least it's set and forget

    Mighty Chungus · 12/03/2020 at 08:17

    Solid πŸ‘Œ

    Lekdog · 12/03/2020 at 08:38

    I really like this side. MccLuggage also in my current team. Is a 105 breakout enough? Cogs averages 108 (outside of his 0) last year and is only slightly more expensive…

      Dayz · 14/03/2020 at 23:31

      Yeah I reckon 105 is a worst case scenario. Could easily be pushing 110. Cogs is also quite injury prone so just overall consistency as well.

Russty_ · 11/03/2020 at 02:44

Cheers guys, I was going to have a very risky silly forward line, but have come to my senses somewhat now.

    Lekdog · 12/03/2020 at 08:39

    Can’t wait to see it

    Lazza · 13/03/2020 at 11:14

    How ya going Russty.. I see you’re having a change to your approach this year πŸ˜›
    Look fwd to seeing your fwd make up ..
    I’m still rolling the tumblers… I actually came up with a team that left me with zero $$… didn’t take byes into account .. just fell that way.. sure to change by the season start.. whenever that will be..

      Russty_ · 13/03/2020 at 23:01

      Hey Laz going good mate, getting ready to grab the neighbour's dog so I can wipe my butt though lol, here's my fwd line at the moment, it changes a lot , it's doing my head in actually…..
      Whitfield, Macpherson, Steven, Smith, Brander, Taylor —Davis Rankine

      At one stage I had this as my fwd line
      Parish, Macpherson, Steven, Smith, Brayshaw 1 rookie haha midprice overkill there!

      P.S you know you've milked max points out of your choices if you have zero bucks left I guess πŸ™‚

Adam · 11/03/2020 at 06:28

Ryan. Houston. Doc. Ash. Starcevich. Thatcher
Gould. O’Connor
Neale. Fyfe. Cripps. T Kelly. Coniglio.
Rowell. Green. Pickett. Robertson. Valente. Budarick
Grundy. Nic Nat. Xerri
Whitfield. Walters. Greene. Smith. Brander. Rankine
King. Cameron
Fairly happy. Thoughts ?
115k in the bank

    Derek · 11/03/2020 at 11:37

    First team I’ve seen with Walters. Thought he had a great 2019 and might to be able to repeat in 2020

    I read today Mundy will be back in first month, how does that effect Walters (and Brayshaw)

      Adam · 11/03/2020 at 12:03

      I don’t think it’ll affect Walters

    Lekdog · 12/03/2020 at 08:40

    I’d all your rookies are named if use the cash to upgrade Cogs, other than that love it

      Adam · 13/03/2020 at 05:27

      Bloody cheers LekDog

Andy · 11/03/2020 at 07:17

Great work people!!

Also (not sure if I'm allowed to post this here) I have a a super competitive cash league with 2 spots left. Details are:

Cost: $100

Weekly top scorer (excluding bye rounds): $20

Top points scorer for the season (end rnd 23): $350

Premiership winner: $700

Runner up: $350

If anyone keen drop a number or email and I can get in touch, but as I said only 2 spots left so will be first in best dressed!

    SC GOAT · 11/03/2020 at 10:18

Sam · 11/03/2020 at 09:27

Thoughts on my side guys

Lloyd, Laird, Docherty ( Gould )
Ash, Zerk- thatcher, Brander ( Watson )

McRae, Fyfe, Cripps, Neale
Kelly, Rowell, green, Pickett
( Robertson, budarick, sharp)

Grundy, Gawn
( comben )

Whitfield, Martin, Steven ( Cameron )
Rankine, Taylor, georgeiades ( king )

Any help with improving would be great

    Derek · 11/03/2020 at 11:45

    That is a solid starting team.

    When I was building my team, started with all those (12) premiums as the core

    I do think Coniglio is too much value to ignore and Lloyd is on the expensive side.

    Have a think about a Kelly to Cogs and Lloyd to Houston, will save nearly $200k.

    Otherwise, very good

      Sam · 11/03/2020 at 12:23

      Then do what with the 200k I think people forget how much The swans like the ball in Lloyds hands and probably should be top 3 by seasons end. Money shouldn’t be and issue but u like the cogs selection

    BradNied · 11/03/2020 at 12:29

    Fantastic team! Very similar to my own

    Def: Lloyd Laird Doc 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 Budarick (Rankine King)

Tbag86 · 11/03/2020 at 09:32


Is having 3 Bulldogs in the MIDs too heavy / putting eggs all in one basket??

As it stands, my MIDs are:
MACRAE, Neale, BONT, DUNKLEY, Conigliog, Rowell, Greene, Pickett (Robertson, Mahony, Hibberd)

The alternative is going Bont to Cripps, but the trade off is that I'd be left with a $102 k rookie on my bench compared to a playing rookie.

Streaker · 11/03/2020 at 10:28

Is is Brayshaw burn Lekdog?

    Derek · 11/03/2020 at 11:46

    Mundy back within first month

    Patch · 11/03/2020 at 22:31

    Yes but I might pick him anyway

    Lekdog · 12/03/2020 at 08:41

    Yes but at his price might still sneak into my side

    JockReynolds · 13/03/2020 at 10:01

    Listen to Derek on this one Streaker the clowns are only here to destroy your chances and my good name

TelescopicCox · 11/03/2020 at 10:46

Good to be back. I've flirted with mid pricers but have gone back to GnR, pending rookie selections. Last year I was shot in the foot with poor cash gen and never reaching full premo, so I might end up back with some mid pricers for value.

Love some feedback on my team below:

DEF – Ryan, Houston, Doc, Zerk-Thatcher, Brander, Watson (Gould, Williams)
MID – Macrae, J.Kelly, Cripps, Dunkley, Bont, Green, Rowell, Picket (Budarick, Stacevich,Roberton)
R – Gawn, Grundy (Xerri)
FWD – Whitfield, Martin, D.Smith, Lukosius, Rankine, Taylor (Cameron, King)

20K bank

Considering Houston to Laird/Sicily given the R11 bye.

If i'm short on funds given R1 rookies, I'm looking at is dropping Dusty to MacPherson, Bont/Dunks to Oliver and upgrading Luko to Brayshaw.

    Lekdog · 12/03/2020 at 08:42

    Like it!

    Marv · 12/03/2020 at 22:18

    Hi Jon, last year you were in a startup SC keeper draft league, just wondering if you were keen to Claim your team and go around again? Please let us know ASAP if you are.

      TelescopicCox · 13/03/2020 at 07:40

      YYep count me in Marv

        Marv · 13/03/2020 at 14:43

        Good stuff mate. I have resent the invite so if you can hit that when you can please. So hopefully you can get in no problems. Once in keep an eye on the chat function. Cheers

          TelescopicCox · 13/03/2020 at 18:51

          I’ve got a new email. Can you let me know the league code?

            Marv · 14/03/2020 at 08:48

            The league code is 450618. I have a feeling it won’t work but fingers crossed.

              TelescopicCox · 14/03/2020 at 08:52

              No luck unfortunately. Is it because it’s a keeper league?

                Marv · 14/03/2020 at 10:12

                No unfortunately it’s because the people that designed and made the draft system are completely useless.

                Are you able to let us know your email or hit up support directly to sort it out?

                  TelescopicCox · 14/03/2020 at 10:48

                  Do you have Twitter? You can DM me @RealGreekMamba

                    Marv · 14/03/2020 at 11:17

                    Yep just followed you. Assume you need to follow back to DM?

Northerner · 11/03/2020 at 11:08

Thanks for podcast guys.

I’m very bullish on Rankine playing. With Sexton out they will need him. His preseason has been very good from all accounts, so he’s straight in without a game prior I think. If Sexton was there they may have eased him back into through the NEAFL

I think Tobe Watson plays as well. Freo tall defensive stocks are all injured so I can’t see they have many other options other than to play him.

There’s 2 cheap rookies hopefully.

Anyone heard news on Mitch Hibberd? Injury listed as a test and everyone knows they need a big bodied mid to balance that group. Could he get a Rd 1 call up?

    Patch · 11/03/2020 at 22:32

    Think they've said Rankine will play. Not sure how long or how many points we'll get out of Tobe but we'll have to see.

    Reckon Hibberd will need to brute force his way in via the VFL, mate.

    Lekdog · 12/03/2020 at 08:42

    I pray for those rookies

Dac Zawson · 11/03/2020 at 11:56

What are the community's thoughts on Zerk-Thatcher vs Dylan Stephens?

    Derek · 11/03/2020 at 13:36

    Zerk for sure. He's locked into the bombers for the first couple months with no Ambrose or hooker. You won't have to worry about JS unlike Stephens.

      Patch · 11/03/2020 at 22:32

      Agreed. B-Zerk a lock

nankthetank · 11/03/2020 at 13:25

Made a new league,hop in fellas: 104957

Derek · 11/03/2020 at 13:27

Hello community.
I'm the fool who threw Lekdawg the Naismith idea a month ago so I've gotta stick to it.

Sicily Crisp Docherty Noble Bzerk Brander (Gould Greaves)

Macrae Fyfe Cripps Danger Oliver Coniglio Rowell Pickett (Green Robertson Rivers)

Grundy Naismith (Xerri)

Dusty Macpherson Petrappa Smith Taylor Budarick (Cameron King)

And just again on Naismith, in his first few seasons he wasn't setting the world on fire but was showing a lot more potential than his then team mate, Nank the tank. So Sydney moved nank on to tigers. Since then Naismith has never had a smooth preseason until this one. He has showed his potential (in a preseason game admittedly) had a full preseason and is at prime age for a ruckman. Sinclair will be playing forward – you can't really call him a ruckman. If Nank can have a break out season and be a top 4 ruckman Naismith can for sure. He's already locked into number 1 ruck at Sydney. I think he can average 90 and he's 250k. This way you can get premos where there are limited rookies in other parts of the ground as well. I've chosen to go 6 deep in the mid.

    Patch · 11/03/2020 at 22:34

    IT WAS YOU! I'll start this off by expressing my love for people with different, zany and cool ideas and also by apologising for what I'm about to say next but you led my beloved Lekdog astray and I'll never forgive you for it. He was such a good boy and on the straight and narrow and here you are off dealing mid-priced ruckmen in back alleys like some thugs. If you need a hit, get some high quality, class A ruckmen. I won't have my boy dabbling in synthetic rubbish thank you and GOODNIGHT


      Patch · 11/03/2020 at 22:35

      (Also I'm six deep in the mids with Gawn, so it can be done!)

    Lekdog · 12/03/2020 at 08:45

    Derek is my saviour.

Noah · 11/03/2020 at 14:06

G'day community,

I thought I'd share my team and appreciate any advice.

Def: Hurn Sicily Daniel BZK Gould McLennan (Starcevich, Watson)
Mid: Macrae Neale Oliver Dunkley Cripps Rowell Picket T.Green (Sharp Robertson Dow)
Ruc: Gawn Grundy ( Xerri)
Fwd: Whitfield Dusty Steven Brander King Taylor ( Davis Budarick)


    Lekdog · 12/03/2020 at 08:46

    Solid! I prefer Smith over Steven but other than that I like it!

Jess · 11/03/2020 at 14:46

I cant pick between these two def/fwd set ups. Its driving me crazy so any suggestions would be most welcome.

A) DEF: Lloyd, Docherty, Roberton, Noble, Zerk, Brander (rookies)
FWD: Whitfield,Martin, Steven, Smith, Rankine, Taylor (rookies)

B) DEF: Laird, Sicily, Docherty, Roberton, Zerk, Brander (rookies)
FWD: Whitfield, Martin, Smith, Cameron, Rankine, Taylor (rookies)

Basically it is between
Lloyd, Noble and Steven
Laird, Sicily, and a basement priced F4 (eg Rankine/Cameron)

Any thoughts would absolutely make my day πŸ™‚

    Jess · 11/03/2020 at 14:52

    Even more basically, it comes down to:
    Steven and 150k


      Jess · 11/03/2020 at 15:28

      I'm leaning towards option B which would leave my defence bare, in the hopes that Steven can return to 95+ and therefore be more of value pick than Sicily. The fwd line always has trouble generating rookie points, and I see a lot of value in the DEF rookies who usually score better (Noble, Z. Thatcher, even Tobe Watson.)

      If Steven averages within 10 points of Sicily, the $150 saving – whether it is spent rather poorly or not – would have to be the better option, right?

    Lekdog · 12/03/2020 at 08:47

    B nets you more points I think

Teague Train · 11/03/2020 at 15:23

Boltons Blues is gone, all about the TeagueTrain now

Lloyd, Laird, Docherty, Ash, Bzerk, Gould (Brander, Watson)
Macrae, Fyfe, Cripps, Danger, TKelly, Rowell, Pickett, Roberston (McHenry, Schoenberg, Mead)
Grundy, Sauce (Conroy)
Whitfield, Dusty, Steven, Smith, Rankine, Taylor (McAdam, King)
242k left over

Gawn injury has me concerned, hopefully Jacobs gets the nod over Mumford and can fly up in price and the other way happens with Gawn and starts below average for an easy trade up

Starting Steven and Smith has me worried too, injury prone and is Steven 100% mentally fit for a full season, who knows

    Lekdog · 12/03/2020 at 08:48

    This is a really solid Gawnless team, like it

Hannah · 11/03/2020 at 15:47

Great podcast! Would love some feedback on the team as it stands. $57.6k in the bank. TIA

D: J Sicily, D Houston, S Docherty, F Mcasey, H Young, M Ling (T Bianco, W Gould)
M: J Macrae, P Cripps, C Oliver, T Kelly, D Prestia, M Rowell, A Bonar, D Stephens (N McHenry, M Pickett, F Maginess)
R: B Grundy, M Gawn (C Comben)
F: D Martin, J Dawson, D MacPherson, D Smith, M Georgiades, M King, D Cameron, I Rankine

    Jess · 11/03/2020 at 16:00

    Only problem would be to research rookies better.

    Ling,bianco, maginess etc likely wont play.

    Stephens, Bonar,Mcasey etc could be better spent

    Question marks on dawson, prestia and kelly given other premiums

    Lekdog · 12/03/2020 at 08:49

    Two sub $600k midfielders, what do you expect from Kelly and Prestia?

      Hannah · 12/03/2020 at 12:57

      I had hoped that Prestia still had room for improvement, but after looking at his age I’ve taken him out and I took out Kelly as well. I’ve shuffled some rookies around as well to make room for some upgrades. Is this starting to look a bit better? I’ve only got $7.2k left though

      D: J Sicily, D Houston, S Docherty, H Young, D Greaves, M Ling (T Bianco, W Gould)
      M: J Macrae, L Neale, P Cripps, M Bontempelli, C Oliver, M Rowell, A Bonar, D Stephens (N McHenry, M Pickett, B Close)
      R: B Grundy, M Gawn (C Comben)
      F: D Martin, D MacPherson, J Ceglar, D Smith, M Georgiades, M King, D Cameron, I Rankine

      Obviously the rookies will change depending on who is named for round 1, but please let me know what you think πŸ™‚

        Russty_ · 12/03/2020 at 13:10

        Hi Hannah, I don't reckon you need Bonar or Stephens in your mids when Green and Pickett could fill those spots and for much cheaper.
        Get Budarick in the mids if you want a dual position player there and maybe Robertson for Close
        Young, Greaves, Ling, Gould and Bianco might not start, Brander, Williams, Zerk Thatcher, Noble, Ash might..have to wait and see.
        I'd try and get rid of Ceglar too, and swap Georgiades out for Curtis Taylor..reckon he has better scoring potential than Georgiades and King. Good luck for the year.

          Hannah · 12/03/2020 at 15:57

          Thanks heaps mate, the advice is much appreciated. I had to have a year off from doing SuperCoach last year and it’s hard trying to get back into it. It’s like I’ve forgotten everything! But the community here has definitely made it easier so thank you πŸ™‚

            Russty_ · 12/03/2020 at 16:57

            Hey no worries, you must be one of those people who has a life lol, hope you have an enjoyable SC season.

              Hannah · 12/03/2020 at 17:23

              Haha I wish I had a life! I had the hell that was year 12 instead πŸ™ anyway good luck this year!

    Am interested if those couple spots don't end up getting filled up

    Patch · 11/03/2020 at 22:36

    Aw jeez I've absolutely lost that email, I reckon, considering Supercoach goes to my junk mail email address. I'll have a poke around, Trigga, wouldn't be Supercoach without the Happy Place!

Ewoks8Stormtroopers · 11/03/2020 at 17:20

Love some feedback. Haven't made a change in about a day and a half … so that's gotta mean something!

DEF: Z Williams, B Smith, S Docherty, J Noble, Z Guthrie, Zerk (Starcevich, Brander)

MID: Fyfe, Kelly, Cripps, Bont, Coniglio, Rowell, Bonar, Green (Pickett, McHenry, Robertson)

RUCK: Grundy, English (Cameron)

FWD: Whitfield, MacPherson, J Steven, D Smith, Rankine, King (Taylor, Budarick)

$113k left in the bank.


Also, anyone got an invite code for a solid league?

    Lekdog · 12/03/2020 at 08:50

    A few pods, I’d probably upgrade Smith in defence

Jorg Ancrath · 11/03/2020 at 17:58

Patch, you've guilted me into Gawn. Side I'm running with, for now:

Laird, Ryan, Noble, Ash, Zerk-T, Brander (Williams, Gould)

Macrae, Neale, Cripps, Oliver, Cogs, Rowell, Green, Pickett (Rivers, Robertson, Budarick)

Grundy, Gawn (Cmeron)

Whitfield, Dusty, Macpherson, Devon, Schultz, Taylor (King, Rankine)

Not feeling 100% confident, structure scares me. But you've got yo before you lo (or some such).

    Derek · 11/03/2020 at 20:30

    WTF. How can you even afford this line up?? Surely this is over 10mil.

      Russty_ · 11/03/2020 at 20:42

      He's starting 9 rookies mate that's how πŸ™‚

    Patch · 11/03/2020 at 22:37

    YES! A PHYRRIC VICTORY AT LAST! Don't be scared of the backline rookies, Jorg, embrace the fear

Ewoks8Stormtroopers · 11/03/2020 at 19:05

Got a league going, looking for those that want to play 'til the siren blows.

673085 Fighting Monkeys – get on it!

Fearthebeard · 11/03/2020 at 21:14

Lads what ya reckon :

Laird, Houson (can go Sic), Docherty, BZT, Brander, Gould, Greaves/Keane, had to take 102k as im 3k short of a 117 player lol to make this squad work only annoying thing.

Neale, Cripps, Bont, Cogs, Brayshaw, Rowell, Greene, Pickett, Robertson, Mahony, Budarick

Grundy, Gawn, Cameron

Whitfield, Dusty, MacPherson, Steven, D Smith, Taylor, Rankine, King.

Pretty happy besides that d8 that I can't get a rookie likely to get a go.

Tossing up not starting gawn for jacobs and then 300k into another mid premium but brayshaw could be worth it to lock the key on Grundy&Gawn.

Only other option was maybe Bont down to Oliver to allow that d8 to become starvic


    Derek · 11/03/2020 at 23:58

    I’m starting to go away from Houston.

    I didn’t like how he was doing a lock down role on the weekend.

    What happens when Wines is back?

    Sicily for me

    Lekdog · 12/03/2020 at 08:52

    Really solid, no suggestions

    Russty_ · 12/03/2020 at 12:40

    Hi Beard, solid team…the 3 rooks down back maybe not getting a game would worry me though, maybe your plan of Bont down to Oliver is good to get Starcevich, that Watson guy could be a chance too.
    Mids look a bit weak with Brayshaw in there, I assume it's Andrew and not Angus?..you could always swap him fwd for Whit, Dusty or MacPherson so it looks better lol
    It's better than my team! πŸ™‚

TommyC99 · 11/03/2020 at 21:53

Hey guys, got a dilemma.

Fyfe, Cogs or Danger?

Fyfes obviously the more consistent out of the 3. Off a brownlow medal winning year hes still definitely in prime scoring form. But durability is always a factor with him, as well as the murmurs of more time up forward. Cogs is insane value, new captain role this year so expecting an increase in level, but at the same time, i cant see myself without danger in my side. Supercoach loves him and i feel like hes easily top 10 mids this year. I think i'm scared of not owning danger when he has those 60pt quarters where CD froff him from doing stuff all lol.
Who would you guys pick?

    Patch · 11/03/2020 at 22:38

    I'm pro Danger but I currently have none of them

    Russty_ · 11/03/2020 at 22:51

    Cogs for the value I reckon Tommy…The other 2 could be picked up later maybe if they drop in price a bit.

    Derek · 11/03/2020 at 23:53

    There was a great article put up a few weeks ago talking about the Uber Premiums scoring and their age.

    Made me do some research on it myself.

    Found a serious drop in both scoring average and number of game played per year after the age of 28.

    Nearly every Uber I looked into showed the same decline.

    It is real

    Made me put a line through Danger and Fyfe

    I was all for Danger all pre season, Kelly was definitely taking points from him and he might bounce back this year, or age might catch up to him this year.

KingTone · 11/03/2020 at 22:12

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?

jimmy_raiders · 12/03/2020 at 02:32

Thoughts on my team please?

Def: Lloyd, BZT, Starcevich, Brander, Watson, Williams (Rivers, Gould)
Mid: Macrae, Neale, Fyfe, Kelly, Cripps, Dunkley, Mitchell, Danger (Pickett, Robertson, Close)
Ruck: Grundy, Gawn (Nyuon)
Fwd: Whitfield, Georgiades, Davis, Rankine, Taylor, King (Budarick, 102k rookie)

    Russty_ · 12/03/2020 at 03:37

    Hey Jimmy, no offence mate but the best midfield in the world won't make up for the loss of points in your Back and Forward lines..even if those 10 rookies all play.
    Think it's a tad unbalanced..what was your score prediction btw?

      TommyC99 · 12/03/2020 at 08:10

      Yeah im with russty, think you need at minimum 2 premos in the fwds and def. Dont think you can relying on 5 rookies on both lines to get picked week in week out

      jimmy_raiders · 12/03/2020 at 10:48

      Projected score was only 1870

        Russty_ · 12/03/2020 at 12:30

        That's not bad Jimmy, hey don't let me discourage you, if you wanna run with your structure go for it mate, at least you'll know if it's viable or not.

          derek · 12/03/2020 at 21:26

          do it

Dingo · 12/03/2020 at 07:57

Am I the only one with T.Kelly in my side?

    Lekdog · 12/03/2020 at 08:53

    Has recently fallen out of mine, a few comments here have him

    Russty_ · 12/03/2020 at 12:33

    There's been recent talk from Simpson of Kelly plugging the forward gap they have at the moment by him spending a bit more time down there, much the same as he did at the Cats, does that mean he stays around the 100 or so mark with the points though?

Westy · 12/03/2020 at 08:04

Any thoughts on this line up?

D Daniel, Stewart, Docherty, Roberton, Noble, Brander (Greaves, Gould)
M Macrae, Neale, Cripps, Oliver, Smith, Rowell, Green, Pickett (Robertson, Mead, Hibberd)
R Grundy, Jacobs (Cameron)
F Whitfield, Martin, Greene, MacPherson, Schultz, Rankine (Budarick, Taylor)
60K left over

EndoftheWorld · 12/03/2020 at 12:25

Jacobs and Naismith – Locked in.

    Russty_ · 12/03/2020 at 12:35

    Why not?…you only live once! πŸ™‚

Jack · 12/03/2020 at 14:30

Late to the party this year fellas, would appreciate any feedback on my teams first iteration!

J.Lloyd, S.Docherty, I.Cumming, J.Noble, B.Zerk-Thatcher, J.Brander (T.Watson, W.Gould)

J.Macrae, L.Neale, P.Cripps, C.Oliver, J.Hately, M.Rowell, T.Green, M.Pickett (D.Robertson, T.Rivers, C.Budarick)

B.Grundy, M.Gawn (M.Conroy)

L.Whitfield, D.Martin, D.MacPherson, A.Brayshaw, D.Smith, C.Taylor (I.Rankine, M.King)

Possibly looking to downgrade Brayshaw and upgrade Hately, but am not convinced with any of the forward rookies. Any help would be appreciated, cheers!

    Jess · 13/03/2020 at 14:16

    Still not a fan of too many Midpricers.
    5 or 6 is too many, as there is a high risk of having to upgrade most of them.

    Everyone is crying about the lack of rookies, but there are actually a lot of good ones who will be named round 1. Dont believe me just watch.

    We must remember that premos are in your team all year, so their points do count for more. Its fine to have a few stepping stones to allow for ultra premo selections, but it ends up being much better selecting guns and rookies and ultimately upgrading the rookies to more guns and having a team full of guns – no question marks. As long as there are rookies with a somewhat decent job security, its not worth the hassle of predicting breakouts that may or may not happen

      Jack · 13/03/2020 at 21:16

      Cheers!! Agreed year after year rookies always show themselves eventually, will have to wait for the round 1 lineups. What can I say I'm a sucker for a good mid pricer!! Started Macrae in his breakout year and led me to my best season. But have to agree I've gone too heavy this year

    SC_2020 · 13/03/2020 at 16:17

    How much cash left? If I were you I'd go 5 deep in the mids and one less in the fwd. I'd swap Brayshaw for Cameron (ruck/fwd) and upgrade Hately to an uber mid. Back line is ballsy but ok.

      Jack · 13/03/2020 at 21:28

      Thanks for getting back to me! I've got $64,000 left, am definitely leaning towards dropping Brayshaw for Cameron and then Hately up to T.Kelly. Although I would have just enough to go Gould to Howe who I think is seriously underpriced and if all goes right could end up with a 95ish average, but am not totally convinced

DEE · 12/03/2020 at 20:32

anyone know C. Serong and S. Sturt’s TOG on the weekend? Thank you in advance…

    Russty_ · 12/03/2020 at 23:30

    Serong 56% for 60 points
    Sturt 76% for 39 points
    You can see on Fanfooty DEE

      DEE · 13/03/2020 at 01:27

      Russty thanks, forgot about that site… you legend.

        hedski · 13/03/2020 at 11:34

        Maybe that was the week before?
        I just looked, Sturt 29 from 77% and Serong 16 from 20%

          Russty_ · 13/03/2020 at 22:56

          Oops right you are Hedski, sorry about that DEE..mine was from the first weeks match.

derek · 12/03/2020 at 21:22


This is the Ultimate test of supercoach skill.

Outsuper, Outcoach, Outlast.

Rules are pretty much same as last year:

We will start with groups of 22 (number of groups will depend on popularity. We will start with 5 groups and see how it goes, we can add more groups later)

To start the season nice and easy, no-one is eliminated in Week 1, however, The team with the highest score from each group in Week 1 will have the IMMUNITY NECKLACE for Week 2 and therefore can not be eliminated in week 2.

This will continue each week, the team with the highest score for the week in their group will have immunity the following week.

In Week 2, the team with the lowest score for that week (and that week only, nothing to do with overall score or rank, just the one week's score) will be eliminated from the group. Fire snuffed out, gone! Unless that team has immunity. If that is the case, the team with the second lowest score will be eliminated.

In the case of a tie, the team with the lowest overall rank of the tied teams will be eliminated.

The same will happen in Week 3, the lowest score for that week will be eliminated (unless they have immunity)

Week 4 to Week 11 we step it up. TWO teams will be eliminated each week until there is 4 teams left in each group.

We don't play during the byes. This is to much of a big deal to be stuffed up with bye rounds.

After Week 14, the surviving teams from the divisions, will go into the Champion of Champions Group, and battle it out to find out who will be the ULTIMATE SURVIVOR.

Same rules will apply in the Champion of Champions Group (exact details will depend on the final numbers)


I have set up a number of "JR Survivor Divisions" in GROUPS.

Not to be confused with LEAGUES (which i'm sure most people have already filled to their max 10)

JR Survivor Division 1 – FULL

JR Survivor Division 2 – FULL

JR Survivor Division 3 – FULL

JR Survivor Division 4 – FULL

JR Survivor Division 5 – FULL

JR Survivor Division 6 – 894861

JR Survivor Division 7 – 118872

You can join any group, but you can only join ONE.

If i see anyone in more than one group, they will be eliminated from all the groups they are in.

IF there is already 22 people in the group, DON'T JOIN IT, join the next group. Once these initial groups are filled, i will add more groups if needed.

Anyone who was involved last year will know how it all works, and hopefully had some fun.

Let me know if there are any questions.

thanks Fellas.

    DEE · 12/03/2020 at 21:42

    Hey Derek, tried joining Division 6 and 7, league code not found apparently… perhaps it’s full?

      hedski · 12/03/2020 at 22:06

      It's in groups not leagues Dee

    hedski · 12/03/2020 at 22:11

    Is that 22 + the bunnies or 21 + the bunnies Derek?
    I'm in div 1 and there is 22 + bunnies.

      Derek · 13/03/2020 at 00:17

      I’m not playing. So 22 plus me

        hedski · 13/03/2020 at 10:29

      Jess · 13/03/2020 at 14:08

      Yeah good point. I expect people have maxed out, or at least close yo being maxed out, otherwise they would/or should say.

      It is important though

    Great name by the way haha

      Fat Nyfe · 13/03/2020 at 22:19

      Haha thanks Rusty!! Yeah I wasn’t sold on Jackson…was wanting a cheap duck so I can trade in Gawn/English later in the year once I work out their form. But I like the idea, thanks πŸ™‚

        Russty_ · 13/03/2020 at 22:53

        You could go Naismith Fatty…251k I believe, he'll play, could average 80 to 90 ish maybe?

    Thanks Westy, I'm in mate, I started SC NRL before AFL, a lot different imo

Steve · 13/03/2020 at 07:14

Keen to hear the community's opinion on the below options.

1) Whitfield and Zerk-Thatcher 35k left OR
2) MacPherson/Petracca and J Steven 25k left

Traditionally I would prefer to go with option 1, but the potential value being presented in option 2 is becoming harder to pass up.

    Russty_ · 13/03/2020 at 23:04

    Tough one Steve, I like Whitfield and Thatcher, also like Darcy Mac and Steven, not so much Petracca, I think B-Zerk will grab his opportunity with both hands and could be a great player in future…also, he looks like a young Nick Cave when he was in the Birthday Party lol

Maverick_ · 13/03/2020 at 08:57

Option A – Gawn coniglio Budarick & 5k

Option B – Jacobs Cripps noble & 175k

    hedski · 13/03/2020 at 10:30

    A for me Mav

    Maverick_ · 13/03/2020 at 11:38

    I think your right hedski, thanks.
    I just have this annoying little voice saying take Jacobs & the cash..

      Derek · 14/03/2020 at 09:44

      My voice isn’t that annoying

    Mason · 13/03/2020 at 12:33

    Option A, save a trade later

      Maverick_ · 13/03/2020 at 13:25

      fair point thanks mason.

    The Ranger · 14/03/2020 at 17:50

    I've played around with a "serviceable" R2 a few times Mav and it's never gone well for me.
    A for mine.

Yeet · 13/03/2020 at 10:37

Naismith a viable option at R3 to generate cash and as Grundy/Gawn cover?

    Russty_ · 13/03/2020 at 23:02

    Not really as R3, but R2 if you strengthen everywhere else and Sinclair doesn't steal too many points off him.

COREYSC · 13/03/2020 at 11:39

If you make a draft SuperCoach league can the draft day go longer then one day if you have unlimited time limit on selections?

    derek · 13/03/2020 at 18:32

    yes. i have heard of a draft going for a whole week

      COREYSC · 13/03/2020 at 20:17

      Beautiful, been struggling to organise a time for the lads to meet up now I can set one in motion and it will eventually be completed haha

Jess · 13/03/2020 at 13:27

Annnd it looks like the AFL season and therefore SC will be delayed due to toilet paper virus thing.

Moe said it best:

    hedski · 13/03/2020 at 14:03

    Biggest beat up of the century, no worse than a normal flu season.

      Didn't know you were an epidemiologist mate.

    SC_2020 · 13/03/2020 at 16:09

    What!?!! wtf are we going to do now? This dunny role fiasco is giving me the shiites, it's gone too fart

    Daz · 13/03/2020 at 16:52

    No fans at the footy, what's next a corona sub

Daz · 13/03/2020 at 13:39

Anyone concerned of the lack of premos with rd 12 bye? or am I missing something?

    derek · 13/03/2020 at 18:31

    there are only 4 teams with R12 bye

Matt · 13/03/2020 at 13:41

a) Houston & gaff

b) ryan & cogs

I know it’s a tight one but I have this man love for gaff he is doing something special this year…
But would prefer Ryan over Houston just…..


    Maverick_ · 13/03/2020 at 13:59

    I have that dreaded R11 bye in mind when it comes to houston which atm is putting me off him… we may have a decent rookie to cover him but we cant be certain and i don't want a 30 or worse a donut… so Probably Ryan & cogs for me

    SC_2020 · 13/03/2020 at 16:32

    b) easy

    kinglear009 · 15/03/2020 at 19:35

    Have to say that Ryan looks to be in great shape this season, and cogs should be engine room elite with Taranto out of the side. Option B.

SC_2020 · 13/03/2020 at 16:29

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

    Russty_ · 13/03/2020 at 22:54

    I would but I'm all Leagued up SC, thanks anyway.

TommyC99 · 13/03/2020 at 17:00

Hey guys, which options looks better?

1.Houston and 229k for a rookie/s (rookie would be F3)
2. Roberton or a fwd under 454k (means Doch and Robbo are D2/D3 and Dev Smith is F4)

    EndoftheWorld · 13/03/2020 at 23:36


    Derek · 14/03/2020 at 09:41

    I was very interested in Houston, with midfield time. But I didn’t like the lockdown role he played on Bont in Marsh 2.

    Coach has said he may have different roles this year. Turned me off.

    Wines will be back plus the R11 bye.

    The Ranger · 14/03/2020 at 17:51

    1 for mine. Houston should get a 90av at least and I just can't trust Roberton

Darc · 13/03/2020 at 17:17

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..

    Derek · 14/03/2020 at 09:36

    Coniglio is a 110 player, close to top 10.

    I’d slip Rivers onto your Midfield bench to give you a DPP swing with Starcevich.

    Rivers will play early enough, but until he does you will need a rookie loophole that you can swing across two lines. Melbourne have a lot of later games early in season.

    Rookie loophole will let you have a double chance with your rookie scores. Always happens we have an early 100 from a rookie on our bench. Depending on who plays early etc.

    Rivers covers defenders and midfield rookies

    Bit like Berry a couple of years back. Save a trade and get him early

NutSack · 14/03/2020 at 04:08

dont get too excited fellas. we will be lucky if 4 rounds are played before the season is cancelled. Its already been decided if only ONE player gets CV then the season will be cancelled. Friends in the med field say that will be within 2-4weeks. And they also said the first possible likely time fans will be able to attend matches will be early September IF the season is played out.

    DEE · 14/03/2020 at 09:03

    thumbs down… I hope they don’t cancel the season.

    Derek · 14/03/2020 at 09:29

    Maybe they should put cardboard cut outs in the stadium seats, or green screen the fans, make it feel like a game. Will become dull without the cheering

    The Ranger · 14/03/2020 at 17:52

    Gonna be a strange season Nutsack, no doubt about that!

DEE · 14/03/2020 at 09:02

Thoughts on my team please community…






BANK: $49,400

    Derek · 14/03/2020 at 09:25

    Like the Jacob pick.

    Not sure about Naismith at R3, seems like a luxury. Nice move if you are playing for leagues, but if rank, the more cash on bench the less points in field.

    Not a big fan of the expensive defender rookies. Can you find a few dollars ( no Naismith) and get Robertson instead?

    Townsend will be s great pick if he gets midfield time. Marsh 2 he was deep forward all day and touched it 8 times. Lucky he kicked 3 goals to score ok. With the Naismith cash, I’d think about mr Tackle machine Devon.

      DEE · 15/03/2020 at 03:50

      Thanks heaps for the advice Derek… you’ve given me something to think about now. What about Naismith as R2 and D. Cameron at R3 and dump Jacobs? Appreciate the time spent helping me Derek…. Good lad you are. All the best for 2020!

        DEE · 15/03/2020 at 03:53

        You mean Roberton from St. Kilda right Derek?

LHMORWOOD · 14/03/2020 at 10:28

Thought of my team Community!?

Lloyd, Laird, Docherty
Noble, BZT, Watson

(Williams, Gould)

Neale, Fyfe, Cripps
Dangerfield, Bontempelli, Rowell
Green, Pickett

(T.Brown, Robertson, Sharp)

Grundy, Gawn


Whitfield, Martin, Smith
Brander, Taylor, King

(Rankine, Budarick)

Bank: $21,300

    Derek · 14/03/2020 at 10:47

    Solid team.

    11 Uber’s
    2 midpricers
    9 rookies onfield

    The 9 rookies is a bit of a worry.

    Coniglio and Oliver offer very good value, frees up some cash to look at Robertson and Steven instead of Zerk and Noble (brander to defender)

      LHMORWOOD · 14/03/2020 at 12:46

      I potentially don't see Coniglio and Oliver being top 8 mids so no point having them in the side which will in the long term save trades.
      Robertson is a complete no go! been talk of him being a good mid price for past 2-3 years and has never lived up to the potential so why consider him now? Whats he done to make him a good option? Would rather risk it on a rookie in order to generate cash throughout the season and have cash to use elsewhere.
      Jack Steven is an option but really don't quiet know his role in the Geelong side given Duncan and Selwood still need to come back and Chris Scott looking more likely to play the younger players such as Narkle and Atkins through the middle more.

      I am considering maybe downgrading Lloyd to Houston which might let me look at another midprice or premo in the FWD such as MacPherson.

      Thanks for the Advice Derek.

        Derek · 14/03/2020 at 15:46

        Robertson from Saints. Last full year was 2017, didn’t miss a game and averaged 93 with 8 scores over 100…. that Robertson. (His 2015 season wasn’t too shabby either, 22 games at 91 average). He has the ability and an ok risk at $260k I think.

        Derek · 14/03/2020 at 15:51

        Fyfe and Dangerfield both on the wrong side of 28. Usual to see Uber players start to drop away in score and games played once turned 28.

        Coniglio and Oliver just coming into their prime. Could save $140k

Jeff · 14/03/2020 at 13:53

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


    Derek · 14/03/2020 at 15:33

    Is that the one I’m already in Jeff?

Whitey · 14/03/2020 at 15:27

Ok, Ok, please just someone tell me their thoughts, my side is just changing too much.

I can either run Stevens at M5, with Devon and Ceglar (F3 and F4) in the forward line (like it because I have ruck cover but is it too much mid-price madness…


Danger/Oliver/Bont at M5 with Devon (F3) and a rookie (Brander) in the fwd line.

Thanks in advance to peoples opinions.

Cheers everyone

    Derek · 14/03/2020 at 15:53

    Second option. Any option that doesn’t include Ceglar

      The Ranger · 14/03/2020 at 17:30

      Yeah I'm with Derek. Can't see Ceglar being SC relevant.

The Ranger · 14/03/2020 at 17:23

Still umming and aaahing but this is where I'm sitting today…

Lloyd, Houston, Doc + rooks
Macrae, Neale, Bont, Cogs, Rowell + rooks
Dusty, McPherson, Stevens, D.Smith, Rankine + rooks


    The Ranger · 14/03/2020 at 17:28

    Sorry, missed out Oliver in the mids

    hedski · 14/03/2020 at 17:57

    Same structure as me Ranger but I only have 2 mid pricers fwd (Stevens/Smith).
    6 different premos tho.

      The Ranger · 14/03/2020 at 18:41

      Trying to avoid the 30’s and 40’s from fwd rookies mate, at one point I had Tracca in there as well!

        hedski · 14/03/2020 at 18:55

        Yeah same, he didn't last long.
        How I am now.
        Laird, Sicily, Doc + rooks.
        Neale, Cripps, Dunks, Danger, Cogs, Rowell + rooks.
        Whitfield, Dusty, Stevens, Smith + rooks.
        Won't be changing til teams come out now unless someone gets injured/batflu.

          The Ranger · 15/03/2020 at 10:15

          Looks good Hedski.
          Not running a No Flog policy this year?

            hedski · 15/03/2020 at 11:19

            Na, will probably end up with Knobhead in there later in the year, I reckon he'll have a good season.

              Russty_ · 15/03/2020 at 12:13

              knobhead…is he any relation to dipshit ?

                Tibor · 15/03/2020 at 13:05

                Don’t think so, curious to know what is the rehab time frame on a flog. Brendan Goddard never recovered, Jack Riewoldt did but it took awhile, Sicily might recover but Toby looks like a terminal case to me…

                hedski · 15/03/2020 at 13:07

                Second cousin I think Russty.
                Toby had a good end to the year (playing more in the guts) but can still score well playing fwd.

          kinglear009 · 15/03/2020 at 13:50

          I have to say I am liking the Danger pick lots. We talk so much about midfield entries, but not about exits, and both Kelly and even Selwood are departing that midfield. I foresee big things from Dangerfield this year.

            hedski · 15/03/2020 at 14:02

            Spot on your majesty, especially with a fit Esava and possibly Jenkins up forward, more time on the ball for Danger.

Maverick_ · 14/03/2020 at 19:39

Have had this sudden urge all of a sudden start Naismith or Jacobs at R2…
It makes my overrall side look a hell of a lot better and I'd only need naismith to avg 80-85 to justify the selection and jacobs probably 90-95 only worry is both there durability but I would probably start ceglar at F3/4 for cover. Last year I did not start Grundy I ran ROB from Rnd 5 onward at R2 and it was a fantastic ride and got Grundy in the week of SC finals and won most of my leagues including my big cash league..

anyone else considering running naismith/jacobs?

    Russty_ · 14/03/2020 at 20:02

    Hey Mav I understand the temptation, I had English signed up for ages, that was after I started with a Jacobs side, it looked great with all the extra options I had, hardly had to have any fwd rookies, 6 deep in the mids if I wanted, an extra premo back…it's very tempting but I have Gawn now, not sure if I won't succumb to the temptation of Jacobs or English again cause it makes the whole side look more interesting and 2 or 3 less rookies onfield.

      Maverick_ · 14/03/2020 at 20:13

      hey mate yeah I think a big part of my decision will be rookie availability when the teams drop I'm not sure I want too field blokes like king & rankine I cant even be sure blokes like ash & green are locked in Rnd 1 with hately and cumming sniffing round…
      Alot of rookies should have an extra month too prove themselves now though! can't see the AFL going ahead with the season on thursday night unfortunately… Playing in empty stadiums isn't going to make the AFL $$$ and we know how money hungry Gil is… too much money lost in ticket sales, merch, food/bevs & would still be paying overheads.

        Russty_ · 14/03/2020 at 20:43

        Yeah it's not a good situation …it will suck if there's no season at all.
        I also wouldn't want to field King or Georgiades, just for the low scores they'll probably knock out..and Rankine injured for so long, he'll take awhile to get in the groove, at least if Ash doesn't get a game, there's Noble or Roberton, Zerk and Starcevich, forward Taylor and Davis maybe starting.

    Derek · 14/03/2020 at 21:55

    I’m on Jacobs

      Maverick_ · 14/03/2020 at 22:21

      I think I’ll be with you Derek

    Whitey · 15/03/2020 at 21:49

    I had the same thoughts last year and started with English, then had ROB. Took so much time, money and treades to end up with Gawn and lost a lot of points on the way. Was a problem also because the mid-pricer I was able to afford because of the move failed, so its important that you use the extra money wisely. Good luck, hope it works.

dontblushbaby · 14/03/2020 at 19:58

Yep, started with Nic Nac early then went Jacobs, my thinking is Jacobs with increase by aprox 100k with Gawn to drop a 100k , plan is to make the trade in R14 ( who knows what will happen though )

Note : I watched Jacobs last week in Wagga and he was very mobile and the players were looking for him, he took 9 marks of all were around the ground

    Maverick_ · 14/03/2020 at 20:22

    yeah I'm not sure gawn will drop that much maybe 50k and I'd hope jacobs can make the byes with an average of 95 or so making approximately 170k I think would be about right. It'll all depend on the rookies being named I think but atm the cupboards very bare with reliable onfield options

    Tibor · 15/03/2020 at 12:59

    Sounds like a good plan but you can’t call Wagga Wagga Wagga

Marv · 14/03/2020 at 20:31

Anyone interested in taking over a team in a draft keeper league? Have one more spot to fill from someone who isn’t returning for the second year. Couldn’t tell you the state of the team.

But looking for someone who would be committed and active, and as a keeper it’s a year to year commitment not just one year.

We will start drafting tomorrow so you need to be ready when it’s your turn. Also you would need to join a messenger group so I can coordinate next years draft

Anyway if you’re keen please drop your email below. Looking to get someone in ASAP

    Lear · 15/03/2020 at 13:43

    [email protected] – always into a draft scenario, so no issues staying on. Hope the team's in good nick

      Marv · 15/03/2020 at 14:31

      Sorry, got someone already. Cheers anyway

Maverick_ · 15/03/2020 at 07:25

superfooty had an interview with zorko on youtube and asked who would you be picking in SC from the lions and he said Lyons for premium and Zac Bailey and starcevich for value should both average 60+ and looking very good.
That's reassuring for those looking too start starcevich

    Russty_ · 15/03/2020 at 12:15

    nice mav

Tibor · 15/03/2020 at 08:01

Thoughts welcome,

Backs. Laird. Sicily. Houston. Docherty. Zerk. Starcevich
Williamson. Brander

Mids. Cripps. Bont. Whitfield. Oliver. Angus Brayshaw. Dev Smith. Rowell. Pickett
Ash. Tom Green. Budarick

Rucks. Grundy. Jacobs

Fwds. Martin. Petracca. Brayshaw. Rowbottom. Rankine. Taylor
Georgiades. Max King

Rookies subject to selection of course. 8 k. In the bank

    Derek · 15/03/2020 at 13:42

    3 Uber midfielders just seems light on for points early (Whitfield is really a forward) Macrea and Neale and Fyfe’s and Kelly types could be pumping out big scores, where Rowbottoms, Petraccas and The Brayshaws you’ll be happy if they don’t stuff up.

    Neale, Fyfe and Cripps did it last year, 150+ everywhere to start the year

      Moustachio · 16/03/2020 at 09:22

      The more top shelf midfielders you start, the less your total expected points will be (assuming same captains).

      a) breakouts are better value
      b) magic number causes 6-7% price inflation to start each season

      Also, this strategy can be worth doing when you are worried that rooks who you might usually assume will average 50-60 are going to serve up 20-30 aka Balta style.

        Derek · 16/03/2020 at 09:27

        Very wise words

        Derek · 16/03/2020 at 09:30

        Moustachio, are you starting with Whitfield?

      Tibor · 16/03/2020 at 10:30

      Thanks Derek. Looking at it. I’m a huge Fyfe fan. Not 100% sold on Neale staying at last years level but he is an upgrade target for me. Went the Bont over Marcea. Not keen on Kelly due to the dodgy resilience and see better options, you can’t have them all and passing on Kelly sits ok with me. Trying to find my way from Whitfield to Fyfe seems best option, thanks again

      Tibor · 16/03/2020 at 10:40

      Derek your thoughts on dumping Rowbottom for Lukosius which provides cash to go Whitfield to Fyfe

    kinglear009 · 15/03/2020 at 13:49

    There's money spread everywhere in this team – and if no good rookies emerge, that might be wise. But you're betting big on Houston and Doch and Jacobs and Tracca (god he is built like Zeus) and both Brayshaws and Smith!!!

    That's a lot of unknowns…

    Would love to see either Whitfield or Devon Smith make it into the forward line so expensive rookies like Ash or Green can take the field!

      Tibor · 16/03/2020 at 10:47

      Jacobs is a stepping stone to get both Gawn and Grundy ASAP. A bit of over reliance on some DPP to avoid forced injury trades and prioritise this move. If those expensive rookies do play Round one I’ll be doing close to what you’ve said here. More than happy to back Tracca in this year. Of course I do say that every year so I figure I’ll be right eventually

    hedski · 15/03/2020 at 14:07

    By God did I get burnt by Angus last year.
    Not saying he might not end up a good pick but I can't do it.

      Tibor · 16/03/2020 at 10:23

      Angus was a bit of a last minute inclusion. I had Jack Steven in and then looked at similar price options. Gambling that Angus bounces back to something like 2018 form and his present price is a bargain.

SC_2020 · 15/03/2020 at 09:21

Lloooooooydd or Whitfield, who is more important? I can't fit both unless I go Jacobs or English.

    hedski · 15/03/2020 at 11:23

    Both seem a step above the next best on their lines, Lloyd seems more likely to drop in price, Whitfield more likely to miss games.
    I'm starting Whitfield though, less certainty in the fwds.

      SC_2020 · 15/03/2020 at 17:04

      of the two I can't let Whitfield go, so it's about Lloyd I guess, I think?

    Derek · 15/03/2020 at 14:05

    I didn’t have either last year and they both started so well.

    Lloyd pumped out 3x 130+ in the first 3 rounds and Whitfield was smashing out lazy 150’s in the first 4 rounds.

    Lloyd will do what he usually does, but there has been a big change of personal at the swans defence, so that does have me slightly worried.

    Swans defence will see plenty of the ball this year.

    Whitfield’s position is still unclear, which should have us worried. I’ve seen his running ability and his position is ‘the field’. GWS does have a lot of talent, and rarely last year did they have them all together, maybe there isn’t enough points to go around?

    Whitfield’s 111 average last year was his first time over 100 (99.9 in 2018), so he hasn’t been there as often as Lloyd. I’m sure it wasn’t a one off. Lloyd has done 110+ for a couple of years.

    Lloyd has missed 3 games in 5 years……. wait, I rest my case.

    ….. on the other hand, genuine Uber’s in the forward line very hard to find, and Whitfield will be in your team at some stage, where you could easy go the year without Lloyd and there are others to have.

    Right now I have Whitfield, he hasn’t left my team all preseason. Lloyd has been in and out as I’ve needed cash. If I don’t start Lloyd, I doubt I’ll have a chance to get him in, so I’m hoping Houston, Sicily, Laird, Docherty types will do the job.

      Great info thanks Derek. You've definitely put a case for Lloyd to be a starter. Whitfield could be anything if he stays fit, got to have him. A bit like J Kelly but we can't have them all yet.

      kinglear009 · 15/03/2020 at 20:31

      Loving all of this – and feel much the same. Whitfield hasn't left the side, and Lloyd just can't enter it right now.

        Derek · 15/03/2020 at 21:58

        ive always said, Pay the Price for the top player on each line. They are there for a reason.

        I don’t know if Lloyd is far enough ahead of the rest to be essential, but Whitfield is.

        Whitfield might drop in price, but the cost of a trade isn’t worth the saving.

Thanks to the wonders of DPP, there's one central issue that remains for my team:

I've got to choose between having Luke Ryan as a keeper in defence and McCluggage as a hopeful breakout in the midfield. Which would you take?

    Russty_ · 15/03/2020 at 21:25

    I'm taking McCluggage as a keeper king..I think he'll do it this year and if he's disappointing and only in the low 90's or something again, could always offload then.
    I'm going Laird, Sicily, Doch this year….haven't even thought about Ryan.

Tibor · 16/03/2020 at 10:53

I’m not knocking Mcluggage but is he really a breakout if he already costs $510k. Don’t expect all breakouts to be like Oliver who started a season low 300 k. But if a player is already over 500 maybe the ship has sailed?

    Holty01 · 16/03/2020 at 11:30

    I feel the same way Tibor. Why risk it when you only need to spend and extra 100k and you get a guaranteed premium. Same with Macpherson for me. Would rather spend the extra and start Martin.

      TelescopicCox · 16/03/2020 at 12:19

      I've gone MacPherson over Dusty as a value play. I personally feel the difference between Macpherson and Dusty is a lot less than say going McLuggage over Oliver. It's a safer ris. I'm hoping for a slow start from Dusty, to pick him up at a 50-75k discount

        Holty01 · 16/03/2020 at 17:49

        Fair enough. I always look for a potential breakout player. Normally I go by how players finish the season the year before. That’s why Houston is currently in my team. MacPherson although seems to be going to spend more time in the mids, and has had a good preseason, the way he finished last year doesn’t excite me. Plus being in a side who I doubt will win more then 6 games puts to much doubt in my mind

    derek · 16/03/2020 at 18:26

    that is exactly what i have been thinking. He is less than $40k less than Coniglio

    Russty_ · 17/03/2020 at 13:12

    Hi Tibor, I'm not considering McBags to be a breakout player, more of a cheaper premo who should deliver solid scores this season, and hopefully averages well over 100…aka consistency. You must be hoping for the same from Brayshaw having Angus in your mids.

TelescopicCox · 16/03/2020 at 12:23

Final team ready to go, so long as the season gets started. Any feedback? Subject to rookies but I have some contingencies in place if I need to pay up for rookies:

D – Ryan, Howe, Doc, Noble, Zerk-Thatcher, Brander (Watson, Williams)
M – Macrae, Cripps, J.Kelly, Bont, Dunkley, Rowell, Pickett, Green (Budarick, Robertson, Mahony)
R – Grundy, Gawn (Xerri)
F – Whitfield, MacPherson, D.Smith, Lukosius, Rankine, King (Taylor, Cameron)

108K bank

I want to keep my bank for a Macpherson or Lukosius correction trade. Bringing in Howe was my last big structure change for 2 reasons:
1. I'm a biased Pies supporter
2. I believe he's under priced given how we like to play from the back half. The other option was Houston but I've been put off by the R11 bye.

Thanks community!

    SC_2020 · 16/03/2020 at 16:47

    I'm not sold on MacPherson but who am I to judge? He's in a below average team so will struggle to get good consistent scores imo. I prefer others at this stage.

    I like the Howe pick, we all know he can produce good scores if fully fit. He showed a bit in the Marsh series so go for it.

    Love M1-M5, awesome!

Jimmy · 16/03/2020 at 13:42

MID from M6-M8 Walsh Rowell Pickett
FWD F3-F6 Steven Dev Taylor Budarick

MID from M6-M8 Rowell Green Pickett
FWD F3-F6 Petracca Steven Dev Taylor

I think walsh presents huge value for an M6 he could do an oliver a late season upgrade i think but comes at the price of having too run steven at F3 instead of tracca, risky? look over the options carefully & let me know πŸ™‚

Nick · 16/03/2020 at 13:42

What are your thoughts on the below team? I have added 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

    SC_2020 · 16/03/2020 at 16:33

    Hey Nick, I don't think it's a bad move when you have Whitfield in your side, no matter where you have him. I would move Steven to the fwd line and get Pickett on field (move Mahony to the mid bench). Just my opinion, good luck mate.

Praise, criticism or general comment appreciated:





$111k leftover.


    SC_2020 · 16/03/2020 at 16:41

    G'day B-Mac. I'm not a fan of NicNat for Supercoach 2020. His TOG is making him almost irrelevant although who knows what will happen this season. Simmo might increase his TOG without notice.

    Hurley is an interesting one that I have definitely had my eye on. His game vs the Cats was outstanding! Nice POD. And his teammate McGrath could have a breakout season. With more mid time he should increase his average substantially.

    Good luck.

Cakewalk · 16/03/2020 at 18:33

So what happens when all the premos we pick are rested in round 3 because they have to play multiple games a week?

Suddenly Grawndy isn't looking a great option…

    Russty_ · 17/03/2020 at 13:13

    I think if that happens, we're all in the same boat
