Derek

thats a long line of rookie defenders. Jones is a good chance to play, but the rest are fairly long shots. Alot can happen in 3 weeks.

Corey

I could downgrade Steele to Walsh then use the extra money to bring in Grainger-Barras and take Laurie to Gould? but yeah your right rookie defenders are thin at this stage, so fingers crossed!

Derek

don’t think Denver will get a run round 1 either

John

Hi, just had a look at Fox’s best22 and came up with this, as it stands if Fox is right I’ll be be sticking with this set up of a stacked defence and instead of trying to find a defensive rookie I might as well have my loophole player there. Thoughts?
Lloyd Ryan Laird Whitfield Mills Williams (Highmore-Chugg)
Neale Oliver Danger Cripps Dow Powell Downie Gulden (Smith Lazzaro McNeil)
G&G (Flynn)
Ziebell Daniher Impey Campbell Jones Jones (Rowe Treacy/Waterman)
$26,800 left
12 keepers-dodgy fwd line and hoping to hell the rookies are named!

Derek

my latest team has 5 keepers in defense. It is a team that might be needed if the defense rookies don’t turn up. I have Stewart instead of Ryan and i’m not expecting Whitfield to play round 1, so happy to go with Jones who everyone will have.

I still think Heeney gives good value in the forwards. He seems to be flying at training. If Whitfield doesn’t play, you could trade down to Jones and Jones to Heeney in the forwards (that way you keep up with the Jones’s)

John

Hi Derek, yes I noticed Heeney’s been “flying” and well worthy of a F6 position, I just feel with him he doesn’t hurt you to much if you don’t have him, I’d gladly swap Whitfield if he doesn’t play to Dunkley (who can hurt you) but his position as with all bulldogs can change with a flick of a magnet! I did take your advice though and downgraded Jones2 to Waterman leaving Treacy to eventually fulfill his destiny as R3 loophole bringing Flynn out when fattened up and replacing Chugg with Jones for now.

dontblushbaby

I’m punting on Isaak Cumming @ 288k to have a breakout at D4 for GWS

John

Hi Demons, I had a bit of a play around with the money saved between Whitfield and Heeney but didn’t really feel like I’d improved my team, like I said if Whitfield doesn’t get up my personal preference is Dunkley because he’s capable of taking a season away from you within a month, where as I feel Heeney will pump out a 150 but follow with sub hundred scores within that same month therefore keeping the field in touch with you, just a personal opinion mate.

John

I was all over Zorko on the opening of SC, but the more I’ve read about him the more I see he’s destined for the fwd line with the odd cameo in the mids, Rayner might be the way to go for a Bradshaw type breakout and if Caldwell keeps up his 23 CBA’s then he won’t be far behind him, trouble is there’s so much value in the fwd line it’s hard to take a punt on the $350k+ crowd.

Derek

Waterman already in 2% of teams

Derek

$102k a gift from the Supercoach Gods

Russty_

Wonder why he only got one quarter after kicking 4 goals previously.

Derek

JR SURVIVOR is BACK

Back by popular demand is the JR SURVIVOR GROUPS

Everyone who has been involved over the last couple of years should know it works.
We start the season with a number of groups, with about 24 players in each group. Last year there was 7 groups, but this will all depend on how many want to play.

Each week TWO teams from each group will be eliminated.

The two teams eliminated will be the two lowest scores in each group for that round.
In case of a tie (yes, this has happened a few times) the team with the worst overall rank will be the one eliminated.
However, the team with the HIGHEST score in each group for the round, will be rewarded with Immunity from elimination the following week (When the numbers get small, this is massive). When immunity is used, the next lowest team will be the one eliminated.

There won’t be any eliminations in Week 1.

Every week from Round 2 onward, there will be TWO teams from each group eliminated until there are only 4 teams left in each group.

We won’t play during the byes.

After the byes, the remaining teams will MERGE into the CHAMPIONS of CHAMPIONS GROUP (this is where it gets tough).

Depending on how many teams we have in the Champions Group, we will then have another TWO teams eliminated each week until the remaining teams go head to head in the Final Round of the year.
The winner will be crowned Survivor Champion of Champions.

Here are the GROUP CODES (Remember this is a Group, not a League)

Div 1 414875
Div 2 791107
Div 3 150733
Div 4 606508
Div 5 798197

Feel free to join any division. If you join and there are already 24 teams entered, just move onto the next division. I will be adding new divisions as they fill up.

thanks fellas

Jono

G’day lads, check out the link provided and you will see my team.
https://prnt.sc/10b6yti
Any suggestions or what you like about it pls let me know.

Cheers Jono

Derek

The forward line is starting to pick itself

Heeney, Zeibell, Daniher, Impey, Dow, (Waterman, Rowe)

Feel like I need one of Danger, Dunkley or Dusty at F1

Who?

Shake n bake

I like butters to

The Ranger

Jeez, that’s a lot of mid-pricers Derek.

Dovaas

Dangerfield is the one a little underpriced. Full time MID is 5-8 pts up on last year’s MID/FWD split
There is a question on Dunkley’s role and Sidebottom is at full price/ score ave
Dusty could be underprice if he had a full year and not spend middle chunk of rounds just doing enough. 5-8 pts more if performs full year, maybe not 119 ave of 2017 but 103-8 ave of 2015/16 and 2018

JohnDJ59

My top three in the fwd line are Danger, Dunkley, Dusty.

Westy

D – Lloyd, Laird, Stewart, May, Jones, Wehr (Gould, Highmore)
M – Neale, Oliver, Cripps, Rowell, Young, Pedlar, Powell, Gulden (Valente, Berry, Downie)
R – Gawn, Grundy (Flynn)
F – Dangerfield, Sidebottom, Cameron, Impey, Macrae, Cockatoo (Treacy, Waterman)
64k left over.
For what it’s worth I think I’m short in the Mids and Fwds, but that’s the price of Set and Forget in the rucks.
Comments appreciated.

Derek

May is $507k

There is a lot of value in Williams or Lukosius and save $50-$80k.

Heeney is $130k cheaper than Sidebottom

Westy

Thanks Derek, that’s 200k + worth of savings you’ve just highlighted. May does do a high percentage of play-ons from kick outs.

Derek

So does Lukosius.

Although we might see him on the wing and in the guts a bit more this year

The AverageSCCoach

hey guys, thoughts on my team? cheers
B – Laird, Mills, Williams, Young, Jones, Laurie (Wehr, Highmore)
M – Neale, Oliver, Merrett, Cripps, Rowell, Green, Valente, Downie (Jordon, Gulden, Davies)
R – Gawn, Grundy (Flynn)
F – Dangerfield, Dunkley, Ziebell, Impey, Campbell, Bergman (Treacy,Waterman)

22k Spare

FearTheBeard

G’day community!!!

Take 3! Let me know thoughts!

Lloyd, Laird, Z Wil, I Cumming, Jones, Gould (Wehr, Highmore)

Neale, Oliver, Cripps, Rowell, Green, Dow, Campbell, Downie (Smith, Gulden, Scott)

Gawn, Grundy (Flynn)

Danger, Dusty, Heeney, Daniher, Impey, Waterman (Cockatoo, Rowe)

11.4k left.

I basically cut Stewart from D3 for I Cumming in, to upgrade a rookie to Heeney.
Thoughts?

FearTheBeard

Just thought could probably switch Heeney down to Ziebell to and get a 500k defender again? Can’t decide 😐

Derek

Do you need to start both Danger and Dusty?

You could go one of them to Ziebell and Cumming to a defender keeper like Stewart or Mills

Or keep Cummings at D5 and upgrade a rookie to Lukosius at D4

FearTheBeard

Tigers fan mate. My teams DustyGonGetYA lol.

Danger looks to good to pass. I actually had Luko instead of Cummings before but upgraded a few other spots. I could undo that but it wasn’t Danger/Dusty that went lol.

The Jinx

Agree with Derek do you really need to start both Danger & Dusty.

I would take Dusty out and get him later on when he’s at a cheaper price. Bring Dow up forward bring a rookie in the Mid to replace Dow.

Either upgrade Cummin or one of the rookie in defense to Mills or Stewart.

I think Cockatoo won’t start in Round 1 he’s listed in the injury 2 to 3 weeks.

Matt Robison

Community, tell me what you think of my team please:
B: Laird, Mills, L.McDonald, Ash, Cox, L.Jones
M: Neale, Steele, Oliver, Cripps, T.Green, J.Clark, F.Macrae, Downie
R: Grundy, O’Brien
F: Dunkley, Butters, Phillips, Caldwell, Dow, Campbell

Roughly $10k spare.

Russty_

Don’t mind it Matt, was thinking if you considered Phillips and Caldwell to Ziebell and Daniher/Impey, you could have another premo in defence or the mids….or maybe get Lloyd instead of Mills

Ralph_07

Gday community, would love some thoughts on my team 🙂

DEF – Lloyd, Laird, Williams, Jones, Gould, Wehr (Laurie, Highmore)
MID – Neale, Oliver, Merrett, Gaff, Cripps, T.Green, Powell, Valente (Durdin, Downie, Gulden)
RUC – Gawn, Grundy (Flynn)
FWD – Dangerfield, Sidebottom, Daniher, Impey, Bergman, Rowe (Treacy, Waterman)

Only $14,700 left in the bank but if there appears to be a rookie shortage and I need to get some higher priced rookies or Ziebell/Dow types in then I can get that cash through downgrading Green. Any ideas welcome, cheers

Derek

I have a few slightly different teams depending on where the rookies turn up. Basically JClark D5 vs Impey at F5

My other variation is if I decide Gawn is a must have.

The simple question comes down to;

Gawn & an onfield rookie vs Hickey & Dangerfield?

The Ranger

You love the risky R2 Derek, surely it’s option 2

Maverick

Hello community. Maverick here. Only just starting to crank my supercoach season up now. The young family has been keeping my BUSYYYYY!!

Anyways would appreciate a little bit of feedback here .

DEF: Lloyd Laird Williams Greaves Jones Highmore ( Wehr Laurie )

MID: Neale Oliver JKelly Cripps Simpkin F.MacRae Valente Downie (Bianco Collier-Dawkins Brockman)

RUCK: Gawn Grundy (Flynn)

FWD: Danger Phillips Daniher Impey Dow Rowe (Waterman Treacey)

BANK: 180k.

My own doubts atm are
1. Simpkin over rowell and Taranto. I’m even keen on A.Brayshaw!
2. Daniher? Feeling I might swap for Ziebell….
3. Not convinced on Grundy! Gawn locked in

Russty_

Hiya Mav, I was wondering when you’d show up, hey jump into JR Megaleague mate, I’ve saved a spot for ya 627486.
I was considering Phillips at one stage too but I reckon Ziebel is too cheap to ignore, I’d have Z and Daniher and also if you aren’t sure about starting Grundy, there are some other cheaper options, Draper, Hickey, McInerney, Stef Martin, then you could get Rowell and Taranto haha

Maverick

Legend russty I’m in, Thanks!

Yeah I really wanted Ziebell so I’ve gone Impey > Ziebell. Simpkin > Walsh & Williams > McDonald am reading alot about Zac playing 50/50 midfield and off a forward flank not a back flank now. That too me is a no no and starting too cool on him now.

I am very bullish on Andy Brayshaw am even considering JKelly down too Brayshaw. Can’t help feel he’s going to do something special this year.

Is everyone still around in the community russty? No big departures hopefully….

Russty_

Oh yeah right if that’s the case with Williams I might swap him out for one of my Saints boys Clark or Coffield, you could be right about Brayshaw mate, I’d trust him more to complete a whole season than J.Kelly regardless, most of the old crew still seem to be around although many haven’t posted much yet, I’m sure they’ll turn up when season proper starts soon, looking forward to the first pre-season clash tonight, that’ll help make up the mind about Williams.
No Paddy Ryder playing tonight though, they’re leaving the ruck duties with Hunter who’ll have another chance to prove himself.

Hey Mav I’ve a spot left in my league aswell 704565 will be great if you want jump in.

Maverick

Thanks very much shake I’m in!!

Yeah im keeping a close eye on Docherty tonight russty flying well under the radar and is still the general across half back at the blues. Hopefully does enough to pass the eye test yet not too much to warrant everyone selecting him haha

The Ranger

Hey Mav, welcome back mate, much as I like him as a player not sure I trust JKellys body enough to start him as a keeper.

KingM

DEF – Lloyd, Laird, Williams, Duggan, Jones, Gould…
Highmore & Kozchitzke.

MID – Neale, Oliver, Danger, Cripps, Brayshaw, Campbell, Powell, Smith… 
Bianco, Berry & Downie.

RUCKS – Gawn, Grundy…
Flynn.

FOR – Martin, Butters, Ziebell, Impey, Jones, Rowe…
Waterman & Treacy.
Thoughts?
I’m not sold on Williams yet, hard to see him stay on the park all year.
Can Rowell see out the whole season? Maybe gets tagged? So far he is not in the team. I don’t want to be trading up a 500k player, waste of a trade down the track. Trades are Gold and only 30 this year.
Most years I try find 2-3 guys who I think they will improve in scores, eg role change or more mid time. This years it Duggan, Brayshaw and Butters I want to go with. Little POD in my team.
Rucks are just set and forgot.
Forwards are little light this year, but we are spoilt with rookies here. Martin could become Dunkley. Just need to see his role in next game. Danger sitting in the mids at the moment in case forward goes to crap, easily moved then.

KingM

Cheers DD, Williams will be upgraded, just not sold on his body lasting all season. Will reassess all once this weekend games end and see where I can find the money to upgrade Williams.

The Jinx

Waterman has signed for a 1 year deal. Looks to be a certain at Round 1 starter at a bargain price $102.40

Longmuir has said Fyfe will spend more time up forward than last year. Walters will also spend majority up forward.
Serong is looking good for a breakout, played well last practice match.

Maverick

I’m getting very bullish on A.Brayshaw . Plenty of CBAs last praccy and only going too improve on last seasons AVG.

The Jinx

Really considering him Mav. If Cunners doesn’t show up in AAMI and Rd1 then Brayshaw will take his spot.

Maverick

I hope cunners doesn’t turn up for your sake.. I think Andy outscores him through the season and far more durable

The Jinx

Cunners will not be my keeper mate. Purely my stepping stone for Gundy. Like I said in my team reveal, he normally gets off the block early in the season and fades as the season progress.

Last edited 1 month ago by The Jinx
The Jinx

**Rookies are subject to change**

Lloyd, Laird, Stewart, Williams, Jones, Wehr (Fyfe, Highmore)

Neale, Oliver, Merrett, Cripps, Cunnington, Serong, Clark, Powell (Smith, Downie, Gulden)

Gawn, Martin (Flynn)

Zorko, Heeney, Ziebell, Daniher, Dow, Macrae (Traecy, Waterman)

I think I’m pretty sold to start my defense as is. A.Fyfe is my floating donut swing him with Clark between mids and defense

Cunners still my bolter for now, he normally takes off big early of the season. Had a concussion last practice match, we’ll see if plays in AAMI or gets to start in Rd1. Serong is my breakout player, with Fyfe and Walters spending more time up forward. This can only benefit Serong more time in the guts and TOG.

If going by last practice match Bevo will continue using Martin in the Ruck while English who’s so versatile who can play around ground and will do some ruck work to give Martin a rest up forward.
Flynn at R3 has a good chance of starting in R1.

Got Zorko over Dusty to start the season both will average the same end of season and may get Dusty at cheaper price later on.

Ziebell, Daniher and Dow, for what they can produce and JS almost as cheap as rookies. Along with Martin and Flynn they are all my quick cash cows to get Grundy as soon as possible soon as these guys goes up in value.

Goodluck Fellas

gator59

How many Swans players are coaches going with.. I’m looking at 5 to 6 atm

The Jinx

Got 3 atm, could be 4 or 5 the likes of Gould and Campbell if selected.

Maverick

One for me gator. LLLLLLLOOOOYYDDDDD

Would like to fit in mills has every opportunity to finish top 8 defenders, don’t quiet trust heeneys body on a iffy pre season once again and they don’t exactly have any rookies screaming “pick me”

gator59

Hi Mav, Surely the 3 rooks in Gould, Campbell and Gulden are right in the mix to debut ,, Plus Lloyd, Heeney and Mills and that’s 6. Might be to hard to ignore if they all play

Maverick

Gould was horrible in there first match still got alot of work to do, Campbell a bit pricey but if he does play may be hard to ignore with lack of options just prefer cheaper rookies for cash gen. Gulden a real chance according to reports but I feel I have other rookies ahead of him. Downie MacRae Valente powell and Bianco I feel should all go close. But he’s definitely on the radar gator. It’s all guesswork though really isn’t it. Hopefully we can nail our premiums and rookies fall into place nicely for us haha

Derek

Gator. Can you email the invite to draft league again

Russty_

Ditto , I still haven’t got my invite either.

Hi Russty for some reason it won’t let me send out emails to you and derek

Russty_

Do you have my gmail address Col or is it westnet? Did you get my email off Neil?

I don’t have your email address Russty..I sent a message to Neil but unfortunately he can’t read smoke signals..Maybe have to send it in brail to him.

Russty_

Fair enough mate it is a bit weird the other format, yeah I know what you mean about those midpricers they rarely pay off…although I don’t consider Rowell one of them, reckon he’s a Clarry type and a rapid riser. Good luck with Butters, I’m going with a rather risky pick fwd at this stage with a young Giant who could step up this year with Cameron gone.

Derek

Butters at $471k just doesn’t seem cheap enough to take the risk on him. Heeney at same price.

The Ranger

4 for me, Mills and three rookies if they’re picked.

JohnDJ59

Five all up.Lloyd D1, Heeney F2, Campbell M6, Gulden M11, Gould D7. I’m thinking about not going with Lloyd and bringing in Mills.

Russty_

How’s your team looking now John?…have you made many changes in the last week or so?…I’ve made about 12000 🙂

JohnDJ59

Hi Russty, I have three alternative teams built around who I have at R2, at the moment I am going with Grundy at R2. Def: Lloyd, Laird, Stewart, Williams, Cox, Jones, (Gould, Highmore) Mids: Neale, Oliver, Danger, Cripps, Green, Campbell, Powell, Downie, (Bianco, Jordon, Gulden) Rucks: Gawn, Grundy, (Flynn) Fwds: Dusty, Heeney, Caldwell, Dow, Smith, Rowe, (Treacy, Waterman). If I downgrade Lloyd to Mills, then Cox could become Young, or I just keep the cash gained in the bank. I’m not to worried about the rookies now, I think most of the ones that I have should be there round one, if not I can just replace them with ones that are.

Russty_

Fair enough mate, I’m trying to minimize rooks onfield this time, hence I’m going with a cheap R2, Hickey or the like.
Any particular reason you’re not going with Ziebel or Daniher mate?

JohnDJ59

I have S.Martin as my R2 in one of my alternative teams, I still might go with that one. I had Ziebel at F4 a while back, even looked at Impey, but Dow is cheaper. I then looked at Ziebel, Daniher and Impey for the F3 spot after I traded out Dunkley, due to Bevo’s comments, but it didn’t look right. I’m still not sure on Caldwell either. Trading out Dunkley has thrown my fwd line out a bit.
One thing I could do is move Danger into the fwd line in place of Caldwell, upgrade Cripps to Merrett and have an extra rookie in the mids, but four onfield rookies in there seems a bit on the risky side.

Love the Paddy Dow song Lek, should have that as your new Podcast intro song lol

Shaun

Any thoughts on my team?
Still have 316k sitting in the bank for changes which I’m a bit unsure about

DEF
Lloyd, Laird, Stewart, Young, Jones, Highmore, Bianco, Gould

MID
Neale, Oliver, Cripps, Taranto, Rowell, Powell, Valente, Berry, Collier-Dawkins, Downie, Gulden

RUC
Gawn, Grundy, Flynn

FWD
Danger, Martin, Impey, Campbell, Rowell, O.Henry, Treacy, Waterman

Gibbs

Would love anyone’s thoughts particularly on a few players I haven’t seen in many teams that maybe I’m a bit crazy for selecting…
Lloyd Laird Mills Stewart Williams Jones (Highmore, Wehr)
Neale Oliver Guthrie Cripps Taranto Bruhn Bianco Downie (E. Smith Valante Gulden)
Gawn Grundy (Flynn)
Danger, Brodie, Henry, Jones, Bergman, Waterman (Rowe, Treacy)
So Guthrie and Brodie are the two I’m unsure about. On the latter, he has obvious J/S issues but I think it will be the year the penny drops after limited interest from other clubs. If he plays he’s playing inside mid. He’s a bull and I’m banking on an 85 average. Also have the contingency plan of a sideways to a Caldwell, Ziebell, or Green via DPP if he has a poor first 2 weeks/ dropped.
Another selection query is Guthrie. Just feel with Duncan out, plenty of outside options and Danger with a sore groin potentially playing less or more fwd to get him through, Selwood older as well, Guthrie will be clear number 1 Mid and enough to improve by 5 points to around 108-110 after averaging 103 last year. Nice Pod
Would love anyone’s thoughts (and to talk me out of Brodie).

The Ranger

I don’t mind the Guthrie pick but the Cats have so many players that can go thru the middle I can’t see him improving that much. Higgins will get some time onball surely?

Russty_

Danger’s “pain free” now and should play more midfield time than last year.

Derek

JR SURVIVOR is BACK

Back by popular demand is the JR SURVIVOR GROUPS

Everyone who has been involved over the last couple of years should know it works.

Here are the GROUP CODES (Remember this is a Group, not a League)

Div 1 FULL – there are a few too many people. can some people jump into another Division
Div 2 791107
Div 3 150733
Div 4 606508
Div 5 798197
Div 6 642938 – NEW Group

Feel free to join any division. If you join and there are already 24 teams entered, just move onto the next division. I will be adding new divisions as they fill up.

thanks fellas

gator59

Lock the Doch

Russty_

Highmore should have some JS now Gat after Frawley did his hammy, I thought Highmore used it well for his 9 possies and 47 SC points, only got 57% gametime so that’s a decent return. Clark looked good after getting a high hit from Williams.

JohnDJ59

I still have Highmore at D8, so looking good.

gator59

Yes I agree Highmore is a big chance now Russty and liked what i saw from him..Raph Clark (nearly choked on my beer) sorry Hunter was very impressive with only 68% game time for a healthy 96 SC points, Definitely one to watch……. Did you get my email for the draft league mate?

Russty_

hi Gat, no I still didn’t receive it mate, jeez why do they make it so difficult to re-join a keeper league, what a crock.

The Ranger

This weeks team…
Laird, Mills, Williams + rookies
Neale, Steele, Oliver, Walsh, Rowell + rookies
Grundy, Gawn, Flynn
Dunkley, Martin, Rozee, Dow + rookies
Sticking with a structure that’s worked for me in the past but still got $123K in the bank so plenty of room for manoeuvre if the rookies don’t turn up.

Derek

How is Rozee’s foot?

The Ranger

Been keeping an eye out for news on it and it seems he’s still on track to play at the weekend and Rd1. Him and Dow might become a premo and a rookie if there’s enough rookies but I rate Rozee highly and the thinking is that Fantasias arrival means more mid time for him.

Russty_

I read somewhere recently that he’ll be “managed” through the season, not sure if that means rested for games or just playing less tog.

The Ranger

He has an ongoing plantar fascia injury which he carried thru a lot of last season, not much you can do to fix it other than surgery or rest.
I think it just means that he’s had to learn how to manage his training loads.
If it sounds like I’m trying to justify a dodgy selection it’s because I am!

Derek

Doesn’t sound great

Alex Kane

It is going to be tough with the rookies but here goes….
Backs: J.Lloyd, J.Howe S.Docherty H.Young D.Grainger -Barrass I.Chugg (J.Wehr A.Fyfe)
Mids: L.Neale L.Hunter R.Laird P.Cripps M.Rowell W.Phillips A.Perkins F.McCrae
( L.Valente S.Berry C.Durdin )
Rucks: M.Gawn B.Grundie ( M.Flynn)
Fwrds: D. Martin D.Zorko J.Ziebell J.Daniher J.Impey B. Campbell ( T. Fullarton J.Treacy)

Still have $49,600 left for modifications. The only sure thing seems to be Gawn and Grundy, but who knows who is going to play.

Daniel

Hey Everyone,
Would love some thoughts on my team below.
D – Lloyd, Laird, Williams, Webster, Clark, Wehr (Gould, Highmore)
M – Neale, Oliver, Steele, Cripps, Green, Campbell, Powell, Gulden (Valente, Smith, Downie)
R – Gawn, Grundy (Flynn)
F – Dangerfield, Dusty, Ziebell, Impey, Dow, Rowe (Treacy, Waterman)
37k left over.

Longy82

Thoughts on my team?
Here’s where I’m currently at:
DEF: Lloyd, Laird, Stewart, Cumming, Jones, Gould (Highmore, Chugg)
MID: Neale, Oliver, Cripps, Rowell, Cerra, Campbell, Powell, Smith (Macrae, Valente, Downie)
RUC: Gawndy (Flynn)
FWD: Danger, Dunkley, Ziebell, Impey, Dow, Rowe (Durdin, Treacy)
$47k in the bank
Sweating on these rookies to be named now.

gator59

Short and The Nank

JohnDJ59

So if Williams is rubbed out and doesn’t play round one, who are you looking at for the D4 spot. Clark, Harmes &Young come to mind.

gator59

Noble

JohnDJ59

HaHa, I was just about to add him to the list, had him on my watchlist from the start, but I’ve never put him in my team.

gator59

Fair swap for Steele would be Clarry and Tracca

Russty_

Clarry, Tracca and Liam Jurrah 😉

Russty_

We’ll give you Plugger and Barry Breen…bargain!

Derek

Day needs some thought. Reports from the Hawks is he is doing what he wants at half back. Will be filling the Sicily hole this year. Elite kick and future gun.

I personally like Lukisius for a few dollars less than Williams. Playing on the wing and defence. Hope he still takes the kick ins

Russty_

Hi John, thinking about Clark over Williams even if he doesn’t get rubbed out, could be the year when he becomes elite.

JohnDJ59

Yes he was pretty good last year and I had him as a rookie in 2019, the back line has a lot of good quality players to choose from, unlike the fwd line. I thought I was set on my top four in defence, but there are other alternatives.

Boxaaay

Thoughts community? Here’s what I’m toying with at the moment. Forwards are giving me real headaches… rookies are obviously placeholder
Defence:
Lloyd, Mills, Short, Webster, Jones, Highmore (Fyfe, Chugg)
Mids:
Neale, Oliver, Kelly, Laird, Walsh, Rowell, Valente, Lazzaro (Carroll, Downie, Gulden)
Rucks:
Gawn, Grundy (Flynn)
Forwards:
Martin, Caldwell, Daniher, Impey, Macrae, Waterman (Rowe, Durdin)
$30k in the bank.
13 keepers and a very shaky fwd line…

Derek

Looks good.

Change Chugg to Biancio to let you swing Laird to defence if need

Russty_

I think Webster’s a bargain, if he can average 75-80 it’s one less rookie onfield.

TelescopicCox

B – Laird, Mills, Short, McDonald, Young, Jones (Highmore, Gould)
M – Neale, Oliver, Brayshaw, Walsh, Taranto, Campbell, Powell, Berry (Downie, Gulden, Davies)
R – Gawn, Grundy (Flynn)
F – Dunkley, De Goey, Ziebell, Impey, E.Smith, Rowe (Treacy, Waterman)

Logic:
Backline: Feel confident locking in 4 premos. There is some value (Williams, Duggan, Noble/Quaynor even?) but I like the $500k+ boys too much. Howe, Stewart & Lloyd (injury?) in consideration.
Mids: Neale, Oliver & Walsh are locked. Walsh’s DE is a concern but I loved the role he had against the Saints. Brayshaw breakout 2.0 could be a thing; he and Taranto are a close watch and not locked in. Kelly, Macrae & Green the big watches for me.
Rucks – No comment
Forwards: Was rolling with Danger & Daniher instead of De Goey & Dunkley but I’m not trusting Daniher. De Goey seems destined for more midfield minutes, so I’m looking at taking a punt. Dunkley could become Dusty if Bevo is up to his old tricks in the AAMI Series. Butters a close watch and could replace De Goey

Tear it apart community!

JohnDJ59

I don’t mind it, I’m also thinking of not starting Lloyd and going with Mills instead. I prefer Stewart over McDonald though and have Green instead of Taranto. Brayshaw is an interesting one, I had him last year and was happy with his output, I currently have Danger at M4, but I’m considering moving him to the fwd line and bringing in Brayshaw.

Russty_

Stewart or even Howe over Mcdonald any day for me John, too much risk there and not enough consistency.

JohnDJ59

I couldn’t agree more Russty, McDonald only played well in the second half of last year, not sure why so many teams have him at D3.

TelescopicCox

McDonald already out for Stewart, and I’ve brought in Howe for Mills.
Seems as though defenders are benefitting most from the new rules.
Keeping an eye on Macrae as uncontested possessions seem to be increasing

TOPHAWK

Hi Community,
It is time Tophawk revealed his latest team. Here it goes:

B – Laird, Mills, Short, Cummings, Jones, Gould (Highmore, A Fyfe)
M – Neale, Steele, Oliver, Rowell, Caldwell, Sier, Powell, E Smith (Downie, Gulden, Davies)
R – Grundy, O’Brien (Flynn)
F –Dangerfield, Dunkley, Butters, Ziebell, Impey, Rowe (Treacy, Waterman)

Thoughts? Dont hold back!

Cheers, TH

Russty_

Hi TH, not bad mate, Mills over Lloyd ay?…interesting could be a masterstroke this year, Short really racked em up last night but I’m sticking with Stewart, for around the similar price I’d even consider Howe, he seems to be ok and fared well yesterday…he’s cheap cheap! I was considering Sier for awhile, could be an astute choice this year if he gets a decent go at it.
Forward line’s pretty solid mate compared to mine…and many others lol
Good luck for the season, I’m just about to watch your blokes take on North.

Russty_

You could just do what I do Neil and make 10 changes a day until it works lol

JohnDJ59

HaHaHaHa. That is one way of looking at it. I think I did that last season, changed it way to much and ended up going back to what I started with. Sometimes our first gut feeling is the right one.

Russty_

I’m having trouble not changing things too much with these pre-season happenings John, most of them are probably fool’s gold but I reckon Ziebel’s a lock, Phillips is looking solid also.

JohnDJ59

Mine hasn’t changed a lot from my first few, the main premiums have stayed pretty much the same. I’m only looking at replacing Lloyd and Williams because they might not be there round one. Marshall going down and the role of Dunkley has stuffed up my fwd line, I might have to look at Ziebel for that F3 spot now. It’s really the rookies that have ebbed and flowed, even though some of my original rookies are still there.

TOPHAWK

Thanks Russty. Watching the game too. Some decent stand out rookie efforts! Kosi with his 6 goals is a major surprise. Brockman and Tom Powel are pretty much locks for mine.

Russty_

Amazing work from Kosi mate.

Russty_

Cousins mate

Russty_

Tyler Brockman looks like a player, 3 snags at quarter time, I wonder if he starts round 1?

Russty_

Not sure about Downie, on 3 points after almost a half, think I’ll take Powell or Brockman instead.

JohnDJ59

Yes, I think we can take Downie out of our teams. Happy with Powell at the moment.

TOPHAWK

Brockman was outstanding in the previous intra club game too. He will play round one IMO. Lock. Downie a decent chance also, getting the footy but his DE today keeping his score down.

Russty_

Hopefully Brockman can keep his spot once those missing blokes come back in Hawk…at least long enough to fatten up.

JohnDJ59

A few of the regulars that were in ”Holy Grail” 790800 and ”TheSonsOfAnarchy” 510093 last year haven’t joined this season.If you are still interested there are still four to five spots left. If not, The Ranger, The Jinx, Maverick, Fear The Beard, TelescopicCox are welcome to join. TBone (The Superstarrias) I am saving you a spot in ”TheSonsOfAnarchy” since we played off in the GF last year.

tbone19

Gday DJ! Sorry haven’t had the time to get back into SuperCoach till now. Would love to join SonsofAnarchy if you still have that spot for me mate 🙂 hope you are well mate

JohnDJ59

Hey tbone, there is a spot waiting for you, get in as soon as you can. Cheers John.

FearTheBeard

Hey John,

Happy to join. How do I get in mate? Thanks 🙂

JohnDJ59

Hey FTB, what is your teams name, there is still a spot left in ”TheSonsOfAnarchy” league code 510093

FearTheBeard

Just got in. DustyGonGetYa 😉

JohnDJ59

Hey FTB, I think I just moved you out, but it was a different team name, ”Back to Back”. DustyGonGetYa isn’t there.

Russty_

Kind of an awkward price point.

TOPHAWK

Tom Powell, Brockman, Downie, and Kositschke look like locks. Kozzie a defender in SC but playing up forward for the Hawks.

Derek

Hawks don’t have much in forward line without Gunston.

I can see Kosi getting a game round 1

TOPHAWK

Has LDU arrived? His form late last season was excellent too. The 2017 number 4 draft pick has been outstanding today. Great value for money POD pick.

Russty_

Could be mate…they say the fourth year’s the one for the breakout seasons, I would still take Taranto or Cunners over him though.

TOPHAWK

I am really warming to LDU as a POD. Tom Phillips is now officially locked.

Derek

Phillips won’t get that much midfield time when Titch, O’Mera, Breust and Wingard are back

Russty_

Will he still be hanging around the wings though Derek…or maybe play as a fwd?

Derek

He will be on one wing.

It will be Titch, JOM, Shiel and Worpo, in the guts with Chad, Phillips Howe and Breust helping out

Dusty

Connor menadue? Showed promise at Richmond might relish his chance.

JohnDJ59

My Cripps > Merrett move yesterday is looking good.

Derek

Can’t you have them both?

JohnDJ59

No. M1 Neale, M2 Oliver, M3 Merrett, M4 Danger, M5 Green.

Derek

You can put Danger in the forward line

Russty_

Yeah I’d try to keep Cripps, he’s cheap as chrips.

JohnDJ59

Even if I put Danger in the fwd line, I can’t afford both.

Russty_

Maybe downgrade someone to Ziebell John?…have you tried that yet

JohnDJ59

Not yet Russty, I still have Caldwell at F3.

JohnDJ59

My current side. Def: Laird, Mills, Stewart, Short, Cox, Jones, ( Gould, Highmore) Mids: Neale, Oliver, Merrett, Dusty, Green, Clark, Powell, Berry, (Jordon, Mead, Gulden) Rucks: Gawn, Grundy, (Hunter) Fwds: Danger, Heeney, Caldwell, Smith, Rowe, Brockman, (Treacy, Waterman) I brought Clark in for Campbell at M6, that one I’m not to sure about, if Campbell does alright he will come back in and I will swap Dusty and Danger around again.

Derek

Short out for Crips (swing Clark to defence)

About same price, can’t compare

JohnDJ59

I don’t mind Short, had a look at his scoring last year, had a range of 75-126 only went under 80 a few times, fairly consistent.

Russty_

Maybe Cox out for Kosi John?…might help you get Ziebell into your fwd line. I reckon Cox is too skinny and will break.

JohnDJ59

I saw Cox was only on 15 or so at half time, so that won’t cut it. I just had him there because I thought he was going to play round one and Patch liked him. That Kosi guy did play well, I could put him on the bench.
I took Cox out, moved J.Clark to D5, Campbell back in at M6 and swapped Danger and Dusty around again, so Danger is M4 and Dusty F1.
I also went Gould to Kosi at D7.

Russty_

Cox and Jones, both seemed to be doing a bit but not scoring a lot, must be to do with their effectiveness, maybe they’re both still a bit too raw.
You know all your problems would be solved if you just got rid of Gawn or Grundy 😉

JohnDJ59

Yes, if S,Martin does alright, I might have to go down that road. Just worried about the backup at R3.

Russty_

Sounds good John, midfield’s looking better now, Campbell is one of those special rookies apparently, hopefully it’s true…worth trying ! If the Hawks don’t try Kosi as a fwd. they’re nutso, you got any dosh left for Ziebell?

JohnDJ59

Afraid not Russty, the only way I can get him at the moment is if I downgrade Caldwell for him at F3. I’m fairly happy with the rest of the team, so loath to change it too much now after changing Lloyd and Williams for Mills and Short. I also sent Dunkley packing for Caldwell so I could go Cripps to Merrett. It’s the most changes I’ve done all pre-season.

Russty_

When I saw Merrett had scored 90 at half time I thought…ok Taranto to Merrett and have 6 mid premos but then when I saw he ended up with 126 I thought, well he didn’t do much in the 2nd half and I went back to Taranto lol.
I changed out Lloyd as well, to Ridley..will have to keep an eye on how long he’s out for (Lloyd) cause he’s a must have. Caldwell looks very worthy of selection at his price, could even end up being a keeper if he builds his confidence more.
I’m still going with Hickey at R2 and Flynn at R3, will know tomorrow how much Sinclair affects Hickey’s scoring.

JohnDJ59

What do you make of Higgins, thinking of going with him over Heeney.

Russty_

I like Snags mate, he could have a breakout year for sure, he played some mid, some high half fwd and the usual small forward near the goals role, he’s a smart, quick thinker who executes pretty well. Only knock from the other day would be he kept looking to hand off goals to other guys, he could’ve kicked 4 or 5

JohnDJ59

Thanks Russty, he wasn’t one that was in any of my teams until a few weeks ago when my fwd line started to fall apart and I had to look for alternatives. My mid line is about the only one that has been constant. The back line was pretty solid until the injury scare for Lloyd and Williams probably missing round one.

JohnDJ59

I might even go Mills to Ridley.

Hunter will probs be out as soon as Marshall and Ryder are back John, Flynn would have more chance of hanging around longer.

JohnDJ59

Yes I did have Flynn, but saw they aren’t playing him as their ruck in their game coming up.

Russty_

Briggs is named as ruck but Flynn’s on the bench so they’ll probs share it.

Shake n Bake

Cripps out so is Lloyd for me

David

Tyson will feel very hard done by if he doesn’t get a game in Round 1

If cunnington is fit it will be very doubtful that any rookie North mids will start rnd 1 coz I think Tyson desrves another crack at it and north need a bit more experience on field.

McDonald gone from diamonds to zirconia’s with Ziebell down there 0.55ppm v 1.24 for Ziebell
I reckon I saw Ziebell make a dozen stupid mistakes (only pinged for 4 clangers!) and he still scored 107 imagine what he’ll score when he’s switched on tactically!

Are McKernan or Hunter likely to play rnd 1?

Russty_

I think both might, Ratts likes a 2 ruck strategy so even if Paddy is back, McKernan and Hunter can pinch hit, McKernan proved valuable as a tall fwd target as well, and with so many small mosquito fwds buzzing around, and Membrey and King being a bit sporadic in their form, a 3rd tall might be warranted…if they contribute.
Hunter and McKernan would both want to give it their all as this is literally their last chance.
I’ve never actually seen McKernan play so well…he was dominant, when he was at the bombers, he was a bit crappish, when he got a game.

I tried to answer as best I could but my comment is “awaiting for approval”…whatever the hell that means.

david

Yeah I get the same whenever I try to post a team or detailed stats

Russty_

I think they both will play, and one will go when Marshall gets back

David

No way Parish only had 3 clearances and 50% de. He was robbed. His game wasn’t as good as Merretts but 32 disposals 8mks, 3tackles, 11 contested pozzies and a dozen score involvements was worth than 89

Also Joey Buttafooko bringing up the rear in defence

Derek

What changes has everyone made because of AAMI games?

The Ranger

Rozee is def gone!
And JClark has peaked my interest.

Jon

My once certain backline has changed massively and gone deeper. Offset by the tentative forwards. And strengthened up the mids.
Def: Laird, Daniel, Stewart, Short
Mid: Neale, Steele,, Oliver, Merrett, Cripps
Ruck: Gawn, Grundy
Fwd: Butters, Phillips, Ziebell, Daniher
Dropped Lloyd, worried about injury, but more concerned that he’s overpriced and others can match him. First time he’s been out. Short new one after pre-season smashing. Like his year by year progress with injury year to make the jump.
Forwards include some breakouts. Butters had a great preseason, as did Phillips. Hawks were missing most of their mids, so Phillips score is conditional but has lots of upside if he can get the mid role rather than just wing. Unsure on Heeney. Want Danger but out of funds atm
Chartomben

Derek

Hickey wasn’t as bad as his score suggests. He had a terrible first quarter for some reason and was on -6 at the first break. Finished on about 50 when he went off at start of last quarter. But I thought he should have done better considering who he was up against. But he was clearly the first choice ruck for the swans, that’s all I wanted to see.

He is still in my team

Derek

It was good to see a couple of defence rookie options, Kosi and Briggs for the bench.

JClsrk is a bit more expensive but has found a spot at D5

The Jinx

I think you’ve just summed up Rookies available at the backline that has a good chance of getting a gig in Rnd 1. Highmore might be the other, the rest are wait and see who gets named.

jel

A few spots in the JOCK STRAPS (643406) are still available if anyone wants to join

Russty_

I took the last spot 🙂
