There wasn’t much time between Round 1 and 2 but we were hoping to put one of these out between each round.

Hopefully you all went OK without one.

Stars have a double in Round 3, and Strikers are now on bye.

Which Stars do you need in your team?

Adam Zampa ($141,500 BWL)
Zampa has started the season with modest scores of 17 and 31 in the Stars’ first two games, but Zamps is a guy who can go on a run and take multiple wickets.

Glenn Maxwell ($164,000 BAT/BWL)
Just when Maxi was about the get going at the crease, he was dismissed. I can feel a big game in one of the Stars two games this round. He’s taken a wicket in both Stars games too, so it would be safe to assume he’ll roll the arm over and get multiple opportunities to score. The must have for this week, and one to seriously consider putting the captaincy on.

Marcus Stoinis ($150,700 BAT/BWL)
Stoinis missed the first game with a side strain issue, but returned in game two for a frustrating score of 13. Stoinis may not bowl if the side is still causing him issues but he’s the kind of player who could go for 80 runs off 25 balls and that kind of batting power is one we can’t miss out on. Like Chris Lynn in round 1, it’s a damned if you do, damned if you don’t kind of selection.

Nathan Coulter-Nile ($190,000 BWL)
An expensive player to get in, and NCN has a history of being managed regularly but his bowling talent can’t be questioned. Returned to the Stars line-up against the Thunder and finished with a score of 73 thanks to two wickets and a healthy economy rate. If you can afford him, he may be worth his price even if he only lines up in one game.

Andre Russell ($165,700 BAT/BWL)
Those who didn’t pick him up last week when he was added will now get a slight discount. Dre Russ didn’t quite get into the rhythm in his first game, but he doesn’t need a lot of opportunity to go absolutely mental with bat and ball. His dual position, and the fact that he’ll likely bat top 5, and bowl 3 overs makes him probably one of the must haves for this week.

Hilton Cartwright ($110,900 BAT)
Hilton has quietly been one of the better Bat only selections in SuperCoach this year with scores of 30 and 58 in his first two games. Not scores that blow you out of the water, but solid scores nevertheless. The fact that he rolled the arm over against the Thunder too, is encouraging but I don’t expect it to be a regular thing.

Qais Ahmad ($120,500 BWL)
Scored 30 in his first game for the Stars, and you could probably lock in at least 6 overs over the Stars two games this round.

who else could you bring in?

Mitch Marsh ($132,700 BAT/BWL)
Adam Voges has said that Mitch Marsh will return for the Scorchers game in Hobart after his Aus A duties. Recently scored 60 off 27 balls and took a wicket from 4 overs only conceding 15 runs. It wasn’t a T20 game, so the bowling numbers probably aren’t as impressive it would be from a T20 point of view, but the batting numbers are very good. May be one you bring in early to prepare for the Scorchers double game week in Round 4.

Matthew Wade ($162,000 BAT/WKP)
Matty Wade was seeing them like beach balls against the Sixers in their second meeting of the season with a massive SuperCoach score of 128 capitulated by hitting 93 off 46 balls. Scored an admiral 45 in the game before that too. If you dare to ignore the double game week, Matthew Wade should be a player who you seriously consider.

Andrew Tye ($149,000 BWL)
If you don’t get Tye this week, you’ll want him next week for the Scorchers DGW. Just a matter of how you prioritise which Scorchers to bring in and when. Scored 57 against the Heat in round 1 and 90 against the Strikers in round 2. Off to a flyer to begin BBL11 and is shaping as someone who you need in your team.

Mohammad Nabi ($129,100 BAT/BWL)
Has stepped into the Renegades captaincy role with Nic Maddinson on Aus A duties, and he’s had some good scores to begin the season with 23 and 59.

D’Arcy Short ($169,600 BAT/BWL)
About 10k cheaper than he was to start the season, and picked up where Wade left off to hit 73 off 51. A player who you’ll likely want in your team after all this early DGW business is over, just a matter of when you bring him in.

Kane Richardson ($166,300 BWL)
Has had a roaring start the BBL11 campaign with scores of 56 and 107 to start the year. The Renegades come up against the Brisbane Heat at Metricon Stadium where he could have a big impact with the ball. Averages 86 against the Heat, and 47 at Metricon Stadium.

Thoughts on Xavier Bartlett or Tymal Mills. I went with Matt Kuhnemann initially and got burned, so I need to get him out my side.


already have Maxwell.

the obvious is Stoinis & Zampa to make 3 Stars, don’t need anymore with their bye straight after

Looking at Marsh as my 3rd trade, ready for their DGW the following


Marsh may bat too far down for mine but I don’t mind the scorcher pick Munro for me Had him all last year love him Toss up whether I go Larkin or Munro


Munro & Tye will be in my team for tonight, only have Maxwell & Russell from Stars , all teams play once in Round 5 so will load up on Scorchers for next week then plan for Hurricanes & Heat who have dual games in Round 6 ,


I think Marshy goes ok NDD. Will be first picked rd 4 for me to form part of my scorching scorchers.


Bloody great ton from Mitchy boy the other night 🙂


Just goes to show my knowledge of this form mate. It is so easy to make rookie mistakes I have made a big one in both rounds costing me 300 pts . Got mixed up with vc and c and missed THE SHOW and forgot to check final teams and missed Abbott Thems the breaks I guess good to hear from you Trigg and Russty Working on the real stuff and liking Pruess but will mummy come back cheers lads NDD


I didn’t pick Marsh this week. went for Joe Clarke instead. What was i thinking?

Stuffed up my C selection this week as well, thought i had it on Max. Thankfully Phillipee came through ok.


Don’t think Mummy will come back mate, too old and sore now, plus there’s Flynn and Briggs there now as backup, it’ll all depend on the announcements I guess, whether Preuss gets named as the main man.


Hi lads, can we still have an AFL Supercoach thread?…Team Picker isn’t far away from opening and there’s plenty of discussion to be had about the new crop of rooks etc, cheers fellas.


Who is your first picked this year Russty?
What price will Sicily be?

Zac butters first picked value there.


Derek I am thinking seriously about MCEVOY COUPLED WITH jackson no Gawn What is your opinion as a hawk? In the finals Jackson really came of age 3rd year and oozes talent. Wouldn.t surprise to see him share the ruck evenly which kills Gawn as a pick cheers


Big Boy is RUC/FWD will be an option. No Ceglar this year will give Ned Reeves a decent crack as the #1 ruck. Hawks like the two ruck setup.

I thought Witts would be a good option, but at $380k isn’t the value i was hoping.

btw, did you see how many RUC listed players there are at Gold Coast?

Gawn will still be good, but Jackson will get more and more ruck time, so its a no from me.

Still keen on Grundy. I see he has trimmed down and is ready for a big preseason


i just noticed the Team Picker is avaliable.

Had a chance to pick my first team. So much fun.

First thoughts:

Forward line looks the easiest to pick, with 3 or 4 standout premiums – Dunkley, Taranto, Treloar & Anderson worth a thought. Add Rayner & Coniglio at $278k & 261k and a couple of rookies.

I will be very temped (again) by Witts & Preuss at R1 & R2. Was hoping Witts would have been a bit cheaper than $380k, so might go with Grundy at R1

Midfield will be pick 5 big boys (Steele, Macrae, Oliver, Walsh, Neale, Miller, Bont, Lyons…. so many to choose from. I’ll be looking at reliability and possible early season fixtures and the byes to choose which ones.

Caldwell at $266k looks value and Horne-Francis, Daicos & Hollands as the rookies.

Defence is where i’ll be looking for value. Whitfield at $502k & Sicily at $448k look the value of the premiums. Milera looks good value along with many other mid-pricers to fill up the defence.

Nice to see AFL Supercoach back. BBL can be very frustrating


Hi mate, ooh how excoiting!…team picker is back!, yes mate plenty of value around this year, Sicily will be tempting for sure, I’m gonna see how he goes in the pre-season before I lock him in, gonna go have a play with the picker now, yeah BBL can really shaft you on some games, I wish I had more time to give that another go but just don’t unfortunately.
Is this the year you start Mills in your lineup Derek? 😉


Just had a go at a team run out of $ after 20 players. 🤣 me thinks needs a rework.


Butters yeah for sure…I managed to get a half decent looking team together, have no idea who the main rookies will be though yet.


Butters for me too. Like a wee bit of vegemite as well.probably just pipped TRIGG on that one. Interested to see some team names particulaly Trigg,has to be a dee somewhere,and Gator ,SAINTS SUCK sounds about right for the old fella and what about RUSSTY’S REVENGE Russty and myself had a battle for 33k spot so he will come on strong I hope Demons delight with no attachments this year though @JR soungs good NDD


Maybe more like Russty’s rabble mate haha, I think I’ll keep my goals modest this year and aim for top 10,000


Russtys Return ?


Duncan Russty or is he not a forward


Yeah dpp this year, he’s turning 31 next year so… he’s a wait and see for me, Dunks will start in my side though.


this year, i’m looking at reliability and age.
