The Rucking Dilemma

Written by Big Sexy on 6:00 am, March 2 2011

First off, I need to say my theory seems to be different to that of most when it comes to the Ruck Bench. I have always been an advocate of not putting too much cash in your ruck area…… in particular the bench. However, this season is different:
1. You now have a bye that will impact your R1 and R2 at some stage. So you need backup and canโ€™t afford a zero.
2. You now have an extra bench spot for you Fwd, Mid and Back, but not your Ruck.

$200,000 First Prize!

Written by Duck on 2:14 pm, March 1 2011

Don’t know about you lot but Motts, Big Sexy and Duck don’t mind a bit of a punt in footy season and i don’t mind the thought of winning 200 large either!

If you’re a punter and over 18 then get on board and have a crack at the 200k first prize, someone has to win it, and we’d like nothing more than it be a SuperCoach Talk reader.

Written by Motts on 7:23 am, March 1 2011

Looking to replace L Hodge in your midfield because of a questionable achilles and don’t know where to turn? Here’s a couple of super options: Lenny and Jimmy. They’re proven and they’re relatively cheap but be warned, there’s a couple of good reasons to give them a miss.

Pick Lenny and if you’ve already got Goddard and N Riewoldt in your team, what’s going to happen to your score when St Kilda has the bye? That’s right, with 3 guns down it’ll more than likely end up in the toilet.

Pick Jimmy and you’ll be missing a gun in Week 2 of the finals.

Well, it’s a little over 3 weeks but with only 2 weeks of NAB Cup left and some trial games you should pretty much have your team sorted with only some small changes, or are you still a long way off naming your starting 33?

Let us know what you’ve got so far, who’s still in danger of missing out and who’s locked in.

The Monday Rub

Written by Motts on 6:31 am, February 28 2011

Analysis of the weekend. Cox, Swan, Montagna and Grimes all good in the Cup. Franklin with 5 and Blues with a 157 point win in the Challenge. Rumours of a Knights soft tissue injury again (since dispelled, but it has me worried).

Anything else catch your eye on the weekend?
