Supercoach Cheat sheet | Pre-round 9

Well community, I’ve for a confession to make. I’ve got to admit, I’m really struggling this year and I can’t seem to get back to a reasonable score.

Heroes  Josh P Kennedy (116) – JPK had a big game for the Swans in the thriller, but could’ve pushed his score north of 130 if he kicked his two goal attempts. He hasn’t been a top player this year, but he’s an old reliable player who’s capable of some decent scores.  Zach Merrett (129) – […]

SuperCoach Panic Room: Round 8
