SuperCoach Panic Room: Round 11

SuperCoach Panic Room: Round 11

It’s here, folks! Round 11 marks exactly ONE (1) week to go before the dreaded 3 week period known as the apocalypse / bye rounds hit and proceed to decimate our sides. In my view, there’s only one solution – we all start a new life under the sea. In all seriousness, community. These next […]

Good morning JR Community, great to be back thinking about SC again … who am I kidding? It never stops does it? So just one more week until the byes and hopefully you all have you plans worked out. Every trade from now should be focused on where you want to be at the end […]

Who’s Your Captain? – Round 11

Who’s Your Captain? – Round 11

This week creates one of the biggest issues that we’ve had this season. Brodie Grundy and Josh Kelly, arguably the two best captaincy options this week, play at the same time. So uh, thanks for that Gill. There’s also not a lot of options this week as opposed to last week. A lot of players […]

As we head into Round 11, we have a new array of rookies to look out for thanks to the reintroduction of the mid-season draft. Some teams went in with the idea that they will use these players pretty much straight away, some teams went in basically using it as a head start on the […]

PODCAST | The Season’s Hinge

The byes are coming, THE BYES ARE COMING! Batten down the hatches because we’ve only got one more week of a full roster of players to select from before the Supercoach gods come down off their perch and smite us real good. But while it’s a time of fear, it is also a time of […]

Around the Grounds – Round 10

Round 10 is in the books and it was a high scoring round for many, though not necessarily from our rookies. With Round 10 now completed, we’re almost at the start of the bye rounds, which begin in Round 12, so many will be looking to trade their way through that period, starting from this […]

Heroes, Villains and the Damned | Round 10

Heroes Brodie Grundy (165) – Brodie Grundy, have my children. This man was a beast on Friday. Only had 18 touches, but 64 hit outs really boosted his score. He was a popular VC option and he certainly delivered. Another day in the office for Scott Pendlebury (146) . He had 29 touches and nine […]

SuperCoach Panic Room: Round 10

To paraphrase our Lord and saviour and also Patch’s favourite band from the 90’s (and also currently his favourite band), Smash Mouth, ‘the disasters start coming and they don’t stop coming,’ which is how I feel this week. I’ve been waffling on in the last few weeks in the Panic Room about upgrade season, but […]

Supercoach Cheat sheet | Pre-round 10

Lots of movement this week, JR Community. Injuries, rookies maturing and premos hitting bottom of their cycle. Not long until the frenzy of “3 trade bye weeks” hits. There are a lot more options to be had than I can list here this week. In terms of trading a mature rookie out, remember if their […]

Top VICE CAPTAIN Options Brodie Grundy Friday Night vs Sydney – AVG vs Team: 103.6 With a score of 167 last time Grundy came up against the Swans, and 103.6 average over his career, Grundy has to be seriously considered. Most weeks you can put the C or VC on Grundy and this week is […]

PODCAST | But Where Have All The Rookies Gone?

To paraphrase Patch “Noah Batla is the single greatest Supercoach selection to have ever lived. He’s the greatest Supercoacher to have ever Supercoached bar NONE.” And if it wasn’t for the great man we wouldn’t have a single field-worthy rookie (O’Brien excluded) to discuss. The news doesn’t get better for coaches looking for downgrade options […]
