  1. 270/3/ Cripps
    Grundy, Neale (VC) & Moore
    Solid start by my top order will look to push to 600, declare & then try snare 2 wickets before stumps

    1. So that was weird.
      I have Grundy, Neale and Moore as well. SuperCoach app locked in green scores of 266.
      Updated just now to 270
      bonus 4 points!!!!

      Smashing this round now 😉

    1. 650/7/Cripps (c)

      This score doesn’t include Petrucelle’s 100 as my fwd emergency loophole.
      Neale and Boak under par is offset by Crisp, Drew and Petrucelle outperforming my expectations. Hoping to stay at the pointy end of the overall ranks.

  2. 270/3 Neale VC / Cripps C
    Biggest concern is opponent in main league had Treloar and Crisp. Ouch.

    Who to trade out for ROB?

    TU – Butters (open up M/F swing, pocket $105k)
    TD – Balta (get rid of deadwood but FWD bench exposed)
    Comment – Gibbons (open up M/F swing, pocket $8k)

  3. Strangely enough I don’t have any players in the first two games…. so i’m going to be on zero for a while.

  4. Working through various options to find a way to loophole Petruccelle’s score of 100 that i have emergency on the bench. I currently have Setterfield in the mids, do I swing him fwd and push Danger to mids replacing atkins on field or do I trade out Parker for Stack via Setters and field atkins.
    TU: Swing Danger and Setterfield (Parker on field)
    TD: Trade out Parker for Stack via Setterfield (Stack/Atkins on field)
    Thoughts appreciated

  5. 597/6/Cripps(maybe Danger)
    Petruccelle and Drew doing me massive favours and then Zerrett in with a 137 after a 10 point 1st quarter. 2 weeks I’ve had him and has gone 155 and 137. See what Fyfe can produce to see if I did make the right trade as 1 end is holding up so far

  6. 638 / 7 / Neale -> Cripps

    Also lads after some opinions, squads looking good for moment and I’ve got 28 trades. Thinking of going Gibbons to Stack and Sweet to O’Brien for some delicious long term cash flow. Personally I think it’s worth the two trades and loss of my primary loophole option as O’Brien alone should generate enough to soon turn Constable into a premium.

    TU- Go for it!
    TD – Not worth two trades and dumping Sweet

  7. 511/5/Gawn-Cripps
    Happy with this start given only premos so far are Crisp and Merrett. Just can’t manage to get Petruccelle’s score on field, have Moore’s solid 79 instead…

  8. Appalling start and I don’t even have Darling. I somehow managed to park Moore’s score on my DEF bench, so am hoping Clark or Scrimshaw get ‘managed’ on Monday.
    Even with Pappardelle and Drew’s scores counting, I’m looking at around 2100. Neale VC, Grundy and LMcCarthy the letdowns to date.
    If Heeney’s a late OUT, I’ll be looking south of that 🙂

      1. I have Heeney with Drew as my Emergency who scored 105. I’m kinda hoping Heeney doesn’t play and I get the 105.

    projecting 2,097

    Horrible start with R.Gray killing me with 45.
    But the positive is I managed to loophole Petruccelle’s score.
    Hope I can turn it around from here.

  10. 608 / 7 / Cripps

    Happy with that as many of my guns are still too come.

    Projected is 2169.

    No bench coverage so Heeney better play!!

  11. 684/8/ P Dangerfield

    Played: B Grundy, L Neale, D Moore, Z Merrett, T Goldstein, J Darling, W Drew and X Duursma.

    Yet to play: N Fyfe, L Whitfield, Z Williams, C Oliver, M Parker, I Heeney, S Collins, S Walsh, R Laird, B Smith, R Sloane, J Scrimshaw, P Dangerfield (C) and C Constable/T Atkins.

    W Drew and Z Merrett the only players scoring more than 100 with J Darling’s woeful 9. Hopefully can muster a score over 2000 or even a respectable 2100.

  12. 688/8/ tbc
    Only premo’s to play so far are Neale and Grundy – both disappointing.
    Looped Pettruccelle
    If Heeney plays might go 2200+
    But that is a big might.
    Have Oliver

  13. TU – Balta-Stack and be able to loophole Wagner/Atkins this week
    TD – trade Balta next week (Ross) and play both Wagner/Atkins this week

  14. 509/6 which looks average, but still to post both drew and petrohead scores (thanks to mrp and you Mr Scott…no playing Constable !!), plus most of my guns. Whitfield into cripps for v/c.

    Reckon some teams coming back to the field this week. Hurn challenging Lloyd as no 1 def.

  15. 1229/14/Grundy》Cripps.
    2142 projected. Happy enough considering my own stupidity. Had a Thursday/Friday bucks and completely forgot to change my team. No E on Petrol, left vc on Grundy and missed picking up O’Rielly.
    Also copped a darling 9….

    Left the C on Bines in my tech team hahahaha whoops!

  16. 15/1330/going danger
    Still have dunkley,cripps,walsh, cousins,collins and laird plus danger.
    Only disappointment, darling,but that was a real doozy.

  17. 1302/15 (Dangerfield)

    Still have Cripps, Kelly, Dangerfield, Brad Crouch, Walsh, Smith and Scrimshaw

    Unfortunately had Baker on the bench, and had to put in Scott (41) for the rested Constable. Not happy and not disappointed with my results so far

  18. 1258 / 13 / Cripps or Danger

    Walsh, Collins and Scrimshaw the only rookies still to play.

    TU – C on Cripps
    TD – C on Danger

    1. I’m going Macrae as he is a flat track billy and scores well in wins. Should get 40 against the blues and score from 140-160, whilst Cripps is due for a quiet game and should only produce a low ton.

      1

      1. Thinking the same Troo Roo.
        A little risky as in most of my leagues
        everyone has Cripps or Danger but Macrae due for big one

        0
  19. Still struggling on who to put the C on. I’m leaning towards Danger against a very undermanned Hawks, but my matchup has Cripps as his captain, so I could just choose Cripps to neutralise the captaincy.

    TU: Cripps
    TD: Danger

    1. If your league win is important, let that decide for you if you can’t split the options any other way. Copy your opponent if you’re likely to win, or gamble on a different option if you need to pull an extra 20 points out of your arse.

      I’ll be doing the same in my cash league. Just need Libba, Crouch and Kelly to outscore Macrae and a couple of rookies by about 50 points. Like my chances, so I’ll let my opponent dictate the captaincy.

  20. 1252/14/Dangerfield
    Could have been a lot worse. Still have Libba, Cripps, MCrouch, BSmith, Walsh, Dunkley, Scrimshaw and Danger to play.
    Proj’d 2177 which I’m more than happy with after a woeful start to the Round.

  21. 1947/19 Cripps C

    Worpel, Kelly and Danger left to play.

    Was hoping for more than 45 points from Collins. I was tossing up between him and Scrimshaw for my last defensive spot.

    What’s par this week?

  23. 2028/Cripps/20

    Was annoyed by my captain choice but then realised he’s one of my highest scores with Crisp my best at 116. Only 5 sub 90 scores should give me a decent week I think unless Danger goes huge.

    1. Well Done Anthony
      Danger Should score better then my captain Macrae and Cripps today giving you another competitive store to stay in top 100

  24. Am I crazy to be considering trading out Gawn? Fairly confident I won’t do this, but with an in form ROB in my R3 and set to play the next half dozen games. I have Grundie and Gawn, and am sitting comfortably in the top 1% at 887 at the moment. However, I’m very loosely floating the idea of trading Gawn and a rookie (for example, let’s say rozee) for a pair of premiums via Bines DPP. I acknowledge I’ll only end up trading Gawn back in after his bye in round 13 (potentially earlier, although I’m bullish on ROB’s job security even when Jacobs returns, he looks really good!), but this seems like it could net a lot of extra points in the meantime.

    Just a thought, doubt I’ll pull the pin given theres plenty of players on the bubble this round.

    TU – Not as crazy as it seems…
    TD – Batshit crazy, don’t chase the points.

    13

    1. To clarify, my thinking is that I’d rather have the scores of 2 premos + ROB over the scores of Gawn + a rookie whilst watching ROB score 80+ on the bench.

    2. I wouldn’t, but yet again you need to take risks for the top spot.
      If you’re after rankings, go for it.
      If you want to win your cash leagues, then hold off.

      1

    3. I was thinking the same thing yesterday. ROB will likely score better then most my rookies, having him on the bench seems a waste. Get two premiums for one (assuming you have the extra cash) plus a better scoring rookie on field. Waste a a few trades but might pay off if your going for overall ranking.
      Only thing is I want to grab Baker this week, if he plays next game.

      2

      0
    4. I have actually done the trade. Yeah, seems batshit loonball crazy, but I reckon ROB will be one of the best point scoring & cash generating rookies of the year & so had to get him in. But then would be a waste sitting on the bench each week, so the Gawn sale allows him on field & a double upgrade next week.

  25. 1692/19

    Still to go: P Dangerfield (C), J Scrimshaw and T Atkins

    Shocking round with only 1 player scoring above 110 (Z Merrett) and 7 other tons (B Smith, S Walsh, W Drew, B Grundy, R Sloane, N Fyfe and C Oliver) but only 4 below 75 (X Duursma, J Darling, S Collins and M Parker) combining for 169.

    Need captain Danger to return to his usual scoring (i.e 120+) to ensure that I can exceed 2000.

    0
  26. 1922/20/Cripps
    Danger and Kelly to go
    Trust Gibbons to go large after trading him for ROB, though the cash makes me feel better.
    Needed Whitfield and Collins to do better.
    The Salamander has got me this round

  27. Darling really really stings.
    1725 macrae 18 played.
    Have stack to add to that if constable is out. Danger, Kelly, scrimshaw
    I am hoping for as close to 2100 as I can.
    Love SuperCoach and will keep at it, I’m pretty sure I could be 1000 points behind the leader after this round.

  28. 1790/20/danger .
    Danger as c and cousins to come.
    Couple of ordinary rookie scores don’t help,but darling’s 9 is beyond belief, hope he has a good look at himself, the hand should be shaking when he picks up this weeks paycheck.

    1. I genuinely can’t believe people have Darling. Especially those who follow the site. Bruce, or anyone else who has him, can you please explain what made you start him?

      5

      1. 2 injury affected games of -1 and 14 if excluded lifted his average to 96.94.

        Had a SC friendly role last season due to amassing 15+ disposals and 5+ marks in conjunction with several goals on a regular basis.

        Kicked multiple goals in 12 of 18 matches in which he averaged 110.58 with 2 below 90 and 4 120+.

        Assumed J Kennedy’s injury affected pre season would be beneficial for J Darling as well as assuming O Allan being named in RD1 was just filling in for J Kennedy. Whereas Allan has had a severe impact on J Darling’s performance due to the ineffective forward structure with N Vardy rotating down there as well.

        Didn’t have a hard opening/pre bye draw with several enticing games at Optus where the majority of his large scores occurred.

        Assumed West Coast would continue their great form from 2018 and maintain their spot amongst the top teams in the competition and didn’t expect them to lose many by 7 goals (both losses in 2019 have been by 7+ goals).

        Assumed J Darling’s breakout in 2018 was the new norm rather than reverting to his prior form.

        Hindsight is a wonderful thing and it would have been fantastic to start T Boak around the same price range instead which would have currently given us a 293 point advantage over J Darling.

        Still a lot of time for him to repay current owners by narrowing the differential but currently seems very unlikely.

        2. Doesn’t help that he’s playing deep forward either. Need him running bounding up and down like he was last year.

          Hoping he’ll come good.

          1

          1
      2. Really? I disagree. I generally don’t pick kpw , but I did this year as he was the number 1 fwd last year until he got injured . Adding to that he had a full pre -season this year. I believed he was thourghly worth picking at the time. Hindsight is a great thing but scoring 9 is unacceptable. He’s my first rage trade . Good riddens

    On track for 2250+, originally devastated that I didn’t loophole Sydney Stack’s bench score, but Michael Gibbons stepped up in all facets. Happy to lock his ton in.

  31. 2106/20/Cripps
    Projected 2299 with Danger and Scrim.
    One real let down this week was bringing in Marshall. Whilst I was expecting a 70 – 80 performance against Gawn, it’s still hard to cop a 50. Very happy with everyone else, only one other player under 90 in Stack and the rest have performed.

  32. Ppl complaining about KPP’s (ie Darling) shouldn’t, you know what you’re getting when selecting them. I always avoid KPP (expect for Buddy) cos of their scoring inconsistencies, it’s like you’re on a rollercoaster ride to nowhere.

    1

    2
    1. All owners are well aware of the peaks and troughs generally exhibited by KPP’s which is usually a deterrence from a starting selection but nobody ever expects their premiums to score in single figures uninjured. The situation is akin for example to a Cripps, Macrae or Lloyd scoring below 50 uninjured as due to their consistency and game style is it extremely unlucky and rare.

      The situation is further compounded by a low scoring round across the board as well as several coaches not possessing either on field or off field, some of the high scoring rookies such as Petrucelle, Hore, Gibbons. Darling’s score occurring early in the season has potentially has derailed several owners seasons or their recent good form due to his POD status.

      Also a concept that is consistently overlooked is the role that luck plays in any fantasy game. Whilst we factor in several of the risk components such as injury, role change, scoring history/consistency you don’t expect to cop it this early in the season and it can be further compounded by other injuries, poor form,etc.

      I’d rather coaches vent their frustration appropriately or listing their poor performances in this and the How Did You Go sections on a regular and consistent basis rather than only boasting when they’re going well as exhibited by a large amount of coaches as this helps to further enhance their credibility and reputation amongst the SCT community.

        1. I’m well aware of your contributions and advice offered since the site’s inception and greatly appreciate it. I never mentioned or tarnished your repuatation by placing you in the aforementioned category in the above post as the response was in relation to the sentiment presented.

          If he had scored 30 or more than I would have wholeheartedly agreed with your statement as he and other KPP’s regularly post scores in the 30-60 range. 4 times in Darling’s 163 game career (including RD5 2019) he has scored below 30 with 2 occurring last year which were both injury affected. Therefore, non injured it was only his 2nd time below 30 in his career and was the 1st time since Rd15 2013.

          The possiblility of the occurrence to him or any other “premiums” is extremely low whereas you regarded it as being expected or commonplace which was the main reason for my response.

          0
          1. Maybe I misinterpreted your last sentence in your previous post. Darling has avg around 75 for the previous 8 seasons besides last year’s which was mainly due to Josh Kennedy being injured. Can’t really defined a player as a premium for only a decent season.

            3

            1
          2. Right on, Adam. It was truly an anomaly. West Coast (unfortunately) play terribly in the wet weather and Port really turned up to play.

            Eagles and Darling will bounce back.

            1. Gd i stated on another thread darling could be my first rage trade, but I am having second thoughts, surely he will bounce back.
              A bit to think about this week.

    Happy with the overall performance of the team, with the only real let downs unfortunately being the VC (Neale) with 91 and C (Whitfield) with 86.

  34. 2200 seemingly a pretty good score this round. 2300 would be a cracker of a round for the few that can reach it!

    4

    0
    1. 2000 to 2100 will likely be around or above par with anything above 2150 or 2200 a fantastic score for this round due to the lack of high scores for popular players in conjunction with several players under-performing. With the narrow margin separating tens of thousands as mentioned by Schwarzwalder earlier in the week then expect ranking changes to be very interesting come the finish of tomorrow’s match.

  35. Thank you crows and actually dunkly.
    1818-18. Macrae.
    Danger, menegola, Clarke (possibly) and Atkins to come.
    Very slight chance of getting 2200.
    Would be happy with 2100+.
    Chances of 2200?
    Tu-come close to maby.
    Td -no.

  36. 1938 / 20 / Danger

    Switched the C off Cripps and Macrae at the last minute.

    Hope Danger goes large tomorrow and Scrimshaw backs up his performance from last round.

    It’s been weird so far. Expected higher scores from a few players based on their stats then have been disappointed to see relatively low SC scores. But then the rookie scores have been really good on the whole, with the exception of Collins today.

    Hoping for mid 2200s. If I can push 2300 I’d be ecstatic…

    Pretty average week – no disasters but no triumphs either. Need Dangermouse to go big today, would help if Atkins and/or Scrimshaw saw a bit of it too

  38. 1805 / 18 played / Dangermouse (Cripps VC)

    Some good rookie cash generation this week, spending spree coming up soon 🙂

  39. Everything I had read on darling was he has had a full huge pre season. He was a POD and a risk. Thought he could give me a good start as he has a huge ceiling, had a -1 and a 14 in his price from last season.
    Didn’t think he would be just crashing packs at full forward.
    Might have to loop him from now on as I can’t trade him, he has lost too much cash

  40. 1931 / 19/ Gawn

    Danger, Kelly and Scrimshaw to come.

    2200+ not out the question.

    Pretty happy I captained Gawn, as he is my top scorer at this stage.

    Amazing Rookie tons from Walsh (again) Drew and Pettrucelle.

    Collins my only real spud with 45.
