Around the Grounds – Round 11

Published by Barron Von Crow on

Welcome to the bye rounds everyone! Hello all, we’re here for another week of Around the Grounds and we’ve now hit that dreaded part of the year. The bye rounds. It’s now a best of 18 with 3 trades available to us, it can be both a curse and a gift. The extra trade can really give you an opportunity to fix up some areas of your team, but missing players can also squeeze you for numbers, which can send you tumbling down the rankings if you can’t field a full-team. No matter what scenario you’ve faced with though there’s one thing you can do to help yourself, which is arm yourself with as much information as possible, hopefully we can help you with that a bit here! There won’t be any VFL coverage this week due to COVID restrictions in Victoria, but we’ll still have some state league info from SA and WA on tap. So let’s go take a look at last week and see how we’re looking for rookie selections this week.



The first 3 quarters weren’t much to look at, but the Pies came home strong enough to challenge the Cats, but in the end fell just short, losing 61-51 to Geelong. Trent Bianco (DEF/MID, $123,900, BE -32) made his AFL debut and had a quality game with 19 disposals, 3 marks and 3 tackles for 83 SCPoints. Caleb Poulter (MID/FWD, $261,400, BE 11) had 15 disposals, 5 marks and 3 tackles for 66 SCPoints. He’s now running on a 3 round average of 70.7 SCPoints which is pretty good at this time of year. Nathan Murphy (DEF, $185,500, BE 11) had 10 disposals, 5 marks and 4 tackles for 48 SCPoints, Tom Wilson (FWD, $136,100, BE -1) had 11 disposals, 4 marks and 38 SCPoints while Finlay Macrae (MID/FWD, $130,400, BE 40) had just 2 disposals and 2 marks for 6 SCPoints.


It was a close one all through the game, but Carlton couldn’t run out the game the same way the Swans did, losing 100-78. Liam Stocker (DEF, $224,400, BE 28) had 11 disposals, 2 marks and 2 tackles for 50 SCPoints and Matthew Owies (FWD, $216,200, BE 26) had 9 disposals, 3 marks and 5 tackles for 45 SCPoints.


A quality win by the Bombers, one that leaves them knocking on the door of the top 8 after defeating West Coast 87-71. Harrison Jones (FWD, $263,100, BE 28) had a solid game with 10 disposals, 5 marks and a goal for 78 SCPoints. Maybe slightly above what you’d expect from that sort of stat line. Archie Perkins (MID/FWD, $252,800, BE 38) had 16 disposals, 3 marks and 7 inside 50’s for 65 SCPoints, Alec Waterman (FWD, $179,900, BE 6) had 11 disposals, 4 marks, 3 tackles and a goal for 54 SCPoints and Nikolas Cox (DEF/FWD, $263,300, BE 29) had 9 disposals, 4 marks and a goal for 40 SCPoints. All are sitting there with achievable BE’s, so no players majorly sticking out that are must trades value wise at this point.


Geelong moved into the top 4 on the AFL ladder after their 61-51 win over Collingwood. Max Holmes (MID/FWD, $121,800, BE -40) had 15 disposals, 4 marks and 2 tackles for 60 SCPoints. Not too bad for him and he’s on the bubble this week, but his job security would be questionable at this point. Zach Guthrie (DEF/MID, $212,700, BE 55) had 9 disposals, 3 marks and 2 tackles for 28 SCPoints.


The Hawks remain in the bottom 2 of the ladder after their 113-76 loss to the Gold Coast. Ned Reeves (RUC, $123,900, BE -98) is looking like a popular trade in this week, he had 7 disposals, 3 marks, 4 tackles a goal and 35 hitouts for 90 SCPoints. Jacob Koschitzke (DEF, $270,600, BE 81) had 6 disposals, 2 marks and 2 tackles for 29 SCPoints. He’s looking like his time is up for 2021 in our Supercoach sides. Lastly, Josh Morris (FWD, $145,100, BE 39) had 3 disposals, 1 mark and 4 tackles for 21 SCPoints.


Melbourne kept their spot atop the AFL ladder after a 87-59 win over the Western Bulldogs. James Jordon (MID, $369,900, BE 90) continued on his merry way, finishing with 14 disposals, 2 marks and 6 tackles for 85 SCPoints. His BE is 90 and his 5 round average is currently 80.8 SCPoints, so he might lose a bit of cash in the short term, but he’s worth holding on to until the Demons have their bye in Round 14.

North Melbourne

They made a run in the last quarter kicking 5 goals to 1 but were just too far behind to make up the gap, with the Roos losing to St Kilda 88-68. Tom Powell (MID, $322,000, BE 93) had 18 disposals (14 handballs), 2 marks and 5 tackles for 51 SCPoints. He’s running on a 3 round average of 48.3 SCPoints and with the Roos having the bye this week you’re probably looking at the best time to trade him either this or next week. Connor Menadue (DEF, $283,800, BE 52) had 14 disposals and 5 marks for  52 SCPoints and Tom Campbell (RUC/FWD, $333,100, BE 86) 12 disposals, 4 marks and 13 hitouts with 7 clangers for 41 SCPoints.


The Crows couldn’t handle the Tigers pressure or tall forwards, with Richmond defeating Adelaide 111-83. Callum Coleman-Jones (RUC/FWD, $161,200, BE -45) had a big day in front of the goals, booting 4 with 18 disposals for 112 SCPoints. He’ll be in plenty of more sides this week. Riley Collier-Dawkins (MID, $243,100, BE 40) had 18, 4 marks and 4 clearances for 56 SCPoints and Hugo Ralphsmith (MID/FWD, $134,300, BE 15) had 7 disposals, 2 marks and 2 goals for 42 SCPoints.

St Kilda

It wasn’t the prettiest game for them, but the Saints got back in the winners circle after defeating North Melbourne 88-68. Mason Wood (FWD, $243,300, BE 11) had a well-rounded game with 18 disposals, 8 marks, 4 tackles and 3 goals for 113 SCPoints. Ryan Byrnes (MID, $225,200, BE -10) finished with 12 disposals, 4 marks, 4 tackles and a goal for 73 SCPoints. Oscar Clavarino (DEF, $123,900, BE 14) had 7 disposals and 3 marks for 37 SCPoints while Thomas Highmore (DEF, $193,700, BE 33) had 11 disposals, 6 marks and 2 tackles for 36 SCPoints.

Western Bulldogs

The Western Bulldogs has their 2nd loss of the year after a 87-59 defeat at the hands of Melbourne on Friday night. Cody Weightman (FWD, $227,300, BE -15) couldn’t quite capture the points he had in his first two weeks, but still finished with 10 disposals, 2 marks, 2 tackles and a goal for 53 SCPoints. Due to his higher initial starting price he’s probably a bit out of the price range for most people now, even though he still will make money from here. Jordon Sweet (RUC, $226,000, BE 21) had 3 disposals, 1 mark and 17 hitouts for 39 SCPoints, Lachlan McNeil (MID, $239,900, BE 69) finished with 9 disposals and 3 marks for 31 SCPoints. His BE of 69 is achievable, but he’s running on a 3-round average of just 40.3 SCPoints. Louis Butler (DEF, $191,800, BE 49) had 10 disposals and 5 marks for 30 SCpoints and Riley Garcia (MID, $123,900, BE 44) made his AFL debut, but was unfortunately subbed off early due to concussion on just 7 SCPoints.

South Australia


They had a hot first quarter, but struggled after that, with the Crows eventually going down to Richmond 111-83. Ned McHenry (FWD, $224,600, BE -10) was solid with 19 disposals, 4 marks and 4 tackles with 5 clangers for 64 SCPoints. Riley Thilthorpe (RUC/FWD, $263,600, BE 47) had 10 disposals, 1 mark and a goal for 62 SCPoints, James Rowe (FWD, $307,100, BE 59) was down slightly on recent form with 13 disposals, 3 tackles and a goal for 54 SCPoints. His 5 round average is 64.4 SCPoints, so can probably keep until Adelaide’s bye round. Nicholas Murray (DEF, $181,000, BE 0) had 7 disposals and 2 marks with 4 rebound 50’s for 48 SCPoints. Sam Berry (MID, $240,000, BE 51) was subbed out at half time on 7 disposals and a goal for 42 SCPoints. He’s in the concussion protocol this week, so will miss the game against Collingwood and then with a game against St Kilda in Round 13 he may get 1 more game in before the Crows bye round. Jordon Butts (DEF, $307,900, BE 98) had 10 disposals, 4 marks and 4 clangers for 39 SCPoints, Chayce Jones (MID, $232,400, BE 46) had 9 disposals, 1 mark and 3 round 50’s for 34 SCPoints and Will Hamill (DEF, $193,600, BE 59) came on as medical sub and had 5 disposals and 2 clangers for 7 SCPoints.

Over in the SANFL the Crows fell to the undefeated Glenelg 134-45. Andrew McPherson (DEF, $248,500) had 34 disposals and 8 matrks, Ronin O’Connor (MID, $123,900) had 23 disposals, 8 marks and 7 tackles, Josh Worrell (DEF/FWD, $123,900) had 20 disposals and 9 marks and Tariek Newchurch (MID,FWD, $102,400) kicked 2 goals with 10 disposals and 5 marks.

Port Adelaide

Port Adelaide had no issue with the Dockers, defeating Fremantle 115-69. Lachlan Jones (DEF, $220,300, BE 4) had 18 disposals, 6 marks and 3 tackles for 80 SCPoints and Miles Bergman (FWD, $259,300, BE 88) had 2 disposals, 1 mark and a goal for 15 SCPoints.

The Port Adelaide Magpies moved into the top 5 in the SANFL after defeating West Adelaide 81-52. Joel Garner (DEF, $189,900) had 20 disposals and 8 marks, Dylan Williams (MID/FWD, $123,900) had 17 disposals, 6 marks and kicked 2.1 and Taj Schofield (MID, $102,400) had 15 disposals, 5 marks and 2 tackles.

Western Australia


They were wasteful in front of goal in the first quarter and never really challenged from there, with the Dockers losing 115-69 to Port Adelaide. Liam Henry (FWD, $194,700, BE 32) had 9 disposals, 2 marks and 1 goal for 42 SCPoints and Josh Treacy (RUC/FWD, $123,400, BE 1) had 7 disposals, 2 marks and 3 hitouts for 40 SCPoints.

In the WAFL the Peel Thunder lost to Subiaco 83-39. Nathan O’Driscoll (MID, $117,300) had 22 disposals, 4 marks and 2 tackles and Lloyd Meek (RUC, $213,000) had 14 disposals, 2 marks, 3 tackles and 31 hitouts

West Coast

The Eagles were looking solid at half-time, but could only manage 2 more goals for the rest of the game and eventually went down to Essendon 87-71. Jack Petruccelle (FWD, $295,700, BE 38) finished with 15 disposals, 3 marks and a goal for 58 SCPoints, Bailey J. Williams (RUC/FWD, $217,200, BE 33) had 4 disposals, 1 mark and 11 hitouts for 45 SCPoints and Jamaine Jones (FWD, $308,500, BE 96) had 6 disposals, 1 mark and 3 tackles for 35 SCPoints.

West Coast remained winless in the WAFL after their 127-61 loss to South Fremantle. Xavier O’Neill (MID/FWD, $223,000) had 25 disposals, 2 marks and 6 tackles, Zane Trew (MID, $102,400) had 21 disposals and 5 tackles and Luke Foley (DEF, $127,900) had 16 disposals and 7 marks.

New South Wales


The Giants were never really in this one, losing 129-65 to Brisbane. Matt Flynn (RUC, $367,700, BE 75) was sharing ruck duties with Shane Mumford and it hit his scores, recording 10 disposals, 2 marks, 1 goal and 17 hitouts for 51 SCPoints. GWS are on the bye for Round 12, so Flynn unfortunately won’t be much help to replace Grundy and if he’s going to be sharing ruck duties his upside will be limited in that scenario. Connor Idun (DEF, $325,400, BE 60) had 12 disposals and 7 marks for 68 SCPoints, Sam J. Reid (DEF, $206,500, BE 57) finished with 8 disposal for 37 SCPoints, Zach Sproule (FWD, $185,300, BE 10) had 6 disposals and a goal for 32 SCPoints and Matt Buntine (DEF/FWD, $201,800, BE 32) had 8 disposals, 2 marks and 4 tackles for 20 SCPoints.


The Swans put the pedal to the floor in the 4th quarter, booting 4 goals to 1 on their way to a 100-78 win over Carlton. Kaiden Brand (DEF, $245,000, BE 17) had 13 disposals and 5 marks for 65 SCPoints while Chad Warner (FWD, $311,800, BE 65) had 15 disposals and 4 marks and 4 tackles for 63 SCPoints. Warner has games against St Kilda and Hawthorn in the next two weeks, so should keep his price relatively stable with scores in the 60’s, with his current 3 and 5 round average being 60 and 60.4 SCPoints.



Brisbane didn’t have much issue taking out the Giants, winning 129-65. Deven Robertson (MID/FWD, $309,800, BE 35) finished with 19 disposals, 5 marks and 4 tackles for 85 SCPoints. He’s now running on a 3 round average of 73.0 SCPoints. James Madden (DEF/FWD, $176,100, BE -40) had 15 disposals and 5 marks for 68 SCPoints. He’s now played his 3rd game for the year and is running with a 64.3 SCPoint average. Still gettable for this week, though Brisbane will have the bye in Round 13. Lastly, Jaxon Prior (DEF, $246,600, BE 64) finished with 16 disposals, 5 marks and a goal for 59 SCPoints.

Gold Coast

The Suns were over in Sydney for this one, defeating Hawthorn 113-76. Sam Flanders (FWD, $260,300, BE 26) had 19 disposals, 5 marks and 5 tackles with 5 clearances for 76 SCPoints. Zac Smith (RUC, $216,000, BE -15) had 9 disposals, 1 mark and 23 hitouts for 68 SCPoints, Malcolm Rosas (FWD, $123,900, BE 5) finished with 11 disposals, 2 marks and 2 tackles for 48 SCPoints. Chris Burgess (DEF, $219,700, BE 49) had 9 disposals, 4 marks, 5 hitouts and a goal for 40 SCPoints and Jy Farrar (FWD, $236,900, BE 77) managed just 7 disposals and 3 marks with 5 clangers for 14 SCPoints. Not the greatest day out on the park for him.

Well we have hit the byes and the fire sale team is firing on all cylinders.
For the third week in a row the ol gal has pumped out a score over 2,300 posting a round 11 score of 2,366.

This gives the fire sale team a total points scored for the year of 23,908 which now puts this team only 6 points adrift of my team’s total score and ranks the team at around 5,500.

Normally I don’t pay much attention to the byes but it wasn’t until the Wiley ol demon NDD said have you looked at your byes? I thought I would humour him and had a look. Good thing I did! Look at the outs in the midfield in Rd 13! For this team it is Rd 13 that is the killer not Rd 14.

So after making this discovery it would have been lunacy to bring in another Rd 13 bye player in Ridley. So had to pass on Ridley and brought in another under valued star around the same price in Whitfield.
As Clarke is out with a groin had to trade him instead of CJ. Also traded Campbell to Madden for the cash and a warm body during the byes.

Got a nice little stash of cash sitting ready to go at the moment.

As Zorko played early he again wore the VC armband. After saluting with a 162 JOM wore the captains armband this week.

Shoutout to ROB who scored a bewdiful 147.

Team is below:

Def: Moore, Doch, Lukosius, Rich, Whitfield, CJ. (Fredrick, Highmore)
Mid: Tarranto, Kelly, Parish, McGrath, Walsh, Bolton, Smith, Jordon. (JOM, Sharp, Poulter)
Ruck: ROB, Flynn. (Hickey)
Fwd: Buddy, Zorko, Heeney, Hind, Ziebell, Impey. (Rowe, Madden)

Trades/Moves this week.

Not sure.

Maybe nothing if Hickey is named
Anyone heard anything?
Last time traded him out as he was meant to be out for 8 weeks, was back in 2.

If not named maybe up to Nic Nat or Gawn.

CJ to Mills is also an option.

Both of these can be done with 1 trade.

Pretty happy with the team don’t think there will be much happening during byes, just let the players have their byes and roll into Rd 15.

Need to replace CJ either this week or next week, Impey probably to Danger once price drops.

The experiment continues ……

David C

Madden has been dropped


So cold body eh? 🙄


Teams going well Trtg Yes mate byes are important after all they make up over 11% of the total CJ and Impey surely next and Danger makes sense Give us the cup and bring on The Happy Ending NDD


Big game tonight mate. Best two teams for 2021 going head to head! Looking forward to it. Should be a belta.


Too right Trac Go Dees NDD


How has this only been published on a Thursday afternoon? I haven’t been back on this page in a while but wowee has this entire page dropped off.

I used to love Jock Reynolds.. lift guys cmon!!!

Rick Grimes

Get real. The guys do a fantastic job.


Will, fuck off.


Ah that’s too harsh, but seriously the boys put their heart into this thing for free, and do it around their jobs and families. So get over the self entitlement about when content drops please.


Hey mate, as mentioned I only follow this page pretty loosely these days but from my understanding your a key figure on this page?
Despite any type of reasoning I think it’s a fair comment to make that the page has dropped off from the old days. So settle.
I always loved this page and it’s pretty clear in my comment it’s more of an encouragement to lift the standard back to where it was because I’d sure rather Jock Reynolds than anything else purely because it brings back good memories.


I don’t think anyone thought your comment was encouraging

Teague Train

Might just do the 1 trade this week, no point trading out warm bodies when it isnt needed and trades are light on as it is.

Derailing the Highmore train, swinging Laird back and going early on Bianco, Collingwood is in a rebuild, he wont get dropped baring injury

That completes my defenders unless i have a spare trade where i can trade my start of season POD in Saad to Lloyd/Mills, but otherwise ill be sticking with Laird, Ryan, Stewart, Ridley, May and Saad


My fellow supercoach community.
Any of the regs who show some love and can spare a minute for my sanity lol.
The wife had an op (all good nothingbad) this week so not been round and not thinking clearly as dealing with work/kids. Appreciate you!
I have been ruined this year by injuries(don’t even start me)
Anyway Grundy…. I have more than likely decided he has to go. I seem to be cursed this year with them. I am thinking Grundy out and bringing in CCJ.
This allows me to upgrade Berry to Bont and Robertson to Lloyd.
It would allow me def line finished. Mids would be left with 1 slot (Poulter on field)
Gawn with a rookie.
Forwards have 1 rookie in Weightman on field.
Would have 150k in bank so can potentially sell weightman/poulter next week or so and swing players round to fit reaves if named. Gives me enough their to get maybe Shai Bolton as my last forward or 500kish for a mid maybe go for steele?
Would leave me struggling to upgrade my ruck again and need 1 mid still or forward still.
I can drop from Bont/Lloyd to Steele/Whitfield or Moore or something and have another 100k-200+ banked but kinda feel Bont/Lloyd worth paying for?
Current squad is
Mills, Laird, Stewart, Short, Ridley, Madden, Highmore, Murphy
Oliver, Macrae, Walsh, Titch, ZMerrett, Brayshaw, Robertson, Poulter, Berry ,Lazzaro, Sharp
Grundy, Gawn, Colina
Zorko,Ziebell, Dusty, Impey, Tex, Weightman, Brockman, Macrae…
Thoughts please lads?

Mitch is back

Think your right to move Grundy on for CCJ.
I would go Bont & Moore, which gives you a bit more $ to upgrade in future rounds.
I like Reeves next week as a cash generator. The right downgrades are going to be as important now as the right upgrades.


Thanks for your time Mitch.
Moore worth banking 100k over Lloyd? My only fear with Moore is if he is moved again 😐


If Moore gets moved again Bucks loses his job, I reckon he’s safe ind efence


Hey Lekdog, thanks again as always. How ya been? Hope all well. Do you think Moore over Lloyd is valid move. I had a side thought that I could potentially move Laird down as my last mid so I could always go for Lloyd as my last 550kish player instead of trying to find a mid.


Lloyd I’d rather pay for than Bont just because of the price difference, I think finding value is important if you want to finish your team.

If you can still finish things off in the ruck by taking Lloyd over Moor, I would do that


Looking at it right now. I can trade Moore & Heeney in right now and keep Grundy. Would leave me with Murphy as my last defender needing upgrading (or moving Laird back up and pass on Lloyd) Poulter as my last mid (or another if Laird goes back a second mid needed to complete).
Forward line complete. Gawn/Grundy inruck too.
Would be Weightman, Poulter that gotta be upgraded to get my last 2 prem mids that way(or 1 prem mid/defender).
If I cut grundy it would be 515k in the bank. Meaning I could then go for Lloyd for Poulter for 300k and have 215k for Weightman to become Bolton/Steele maybe shortly. Would leave me with Gawn, CCJ, Reeves though.
So torn. Still feel like Bont was a must if your cutting Grundy.

Sorryfor such a wall lol lack of sleep isn’t helping thought process.

Option 1 – IN – Heeney/Bolton, Ccj, Moore (515k bank or 415k if I take Bolton. LOSE GRUNDY. 3 prem slots to fill)
Option 2 – IN – Moore/Llloyd, CCj, Bont (248k bank or 148k bank if I take Lloyd. LOSE GRUNDY, 3 prem slots to fill)
Option 3 – IN Moore, Heeney – KEEP GRUNDY (49K bank, 2 Slots till full prem)


Pick number 3 m’lord


At this stage I’ve kept Grundy by doing this.

IN – CCJ, Bianco, Moore

OUT – Robertson, Berry, Highmore

Leaves me a bank of 355k.

Thought process is this.

Can see next week report on Grundy. If gone sell for Reeves. Bank 500k. 855k banked. Upgrade Poulter to Bont. Upgrade Weightman to Bolton.

Would leave me 230kish to go upgrade 1 last mid (which is capped at a 500-550k purchase with me culling 1 more cow)

Other side is I could go straight to Nic nat or swing CCJ.

IF Grundy is all good I got 355k to upgrade. 3 slots to fill with Weightman, Poulter fattening.

Thoughts? I wanna jump on Heeney but hes burnt me so many times I’m very gun shy with him? Over cautious? Worth the jump now and get Bianco/CCJ next week?


I don’t mind the Heeney risk, don’t love going early on two rookies, especially when we don’t know what is happening with Richmond’s next game


Hit reverse.

Heeney & Moore in.

Berry & Robertson out.

49K in bank.

Hold off going early on both Bianco & CCJ?

Next week if all 3 look good grab them + reeves?


I reckon you could still grab Bianco if it helps you utilise next week’s three trades better but like Heeney and Moore in


Been busy and just got in. I did Bianco for Highmore before reading this. It feels like it was fate 😛

Heeney, Moore, Bianco – IN
Robertson, Berry, Highmore – OUT

119K banked.

Clear shot at Grundys update next week. Bad he goes for Reeves.

Bont & Lloyd would be coming in for Weightman & Poulter. I would then be basically saying 1 of Reaves/CCJ is my R2 for the year but everywhere else complete.

Grundy cleared or good news. Bolton will find his way in for Poulter with me waiting for a last upgrade.

Rick Grimes

FTB, I’m doing the Grundy to CCJ move. Getting in Heeney and Steele with the cash. Still carrying Flynn, so may get Grundy back in a few weeks if he’s looking likely. Should get him for $50-$100k cheaper. Just have a feeling he’s not gonna be back in the 3 weeks people are thinking, so gives me flexibility.


Can we trust Heeney?I want to go that road too mate but I just can’t feel like I trust Heeney he has burnt me SO MANY YEARS.

It would help alot as the 80k on Bont/Steele & Heeney would be 100k less than Bolton… Could also go Moore over Lloyd freeing another 100k+. Theres 300k roughly id have to upgrade my last mid…

Though then I say well Lloyd, Bont, Bolton vs Moore, Steele, Heeney is a no contest and spend the 300k….

The Lost Boys

Are the rumors that Richmond want their bye moved from 13 to 14 so they can stay interstate and play 2 weeks in a row then fly home true? If so anyone reckon that’s a possibility?
Just concerned as thinking now of leaving CCJ for after their bye, but if they do end up playing in r13 I won’t be able to get him before he rises in price (will be getting Reeves, Whitfield and Kelly that round). I would need to bring CCJ in this week then.


That is worrying and something the AFL would spring on us


Ptckett is an absolute star better than jurrah. What a great win
