  1. Hanley vs Malceski? I reckon Hanley can average 90+ and has that R11 bye, which could come in handy, but we all know what Malceski’s capable of when fit. #supercoach

  6. Sorry for repeat question, I asked this previously but can’t find where I posted it.

    Is the partial lock out double captain tactic available this week, and is anyone trying it? (say with Mumford)

  8. Anyone else considering Mohr over Bugg? Will play every game and should avoid the vest, pretty safe pick with only slightly lower scoring potential. Thoughts?

  9. He has been in and out and in and out of my team for a long time…
    Tell me, please, is Coniglio worth it?

    Thumbs up, best rookie mid, have to have him.

    Thumbs down, not worth the extra 90k.

  10. Cannot seem to log back into league website so I can remove my team from your league. Could whomever runs it and logged in remove my Pink Panthers teams. I think in some league of yours with no4 or 6

  11. Thoughts on Josh Caddy? Worth the extra cash?

    If not which other Rookie should I look at – already have Sheil, Smith Pfieffer, Kennedy, Ledger, Magner

  12. We need one more team for SCTTL3 or we’ll have one none uniform team automatically entered into our league. Please read the rules first, it will be great fun!

  18. Maybe the site crashing is good as it’ll avoid me making some stupid swaps of my rookies. I’ve spent the time on this over the last two months, just gotta back my judgements now.

  21. Relly impressive 1st 1.4 from GWS. Lots of run. Lots of teamwork. Geez they’ll be scary in a couple of years.

    I’ve got Shiel, Congilio, Giles, Bugg, Smith, Kennedy and i’m really happy with what i’m seeing from all of them.

  22. …….and Live HQ live scores……..is down from day one. Probably the safest bet all pre-season that one. I said I would happily pay the weekly cost if they were going to give us good genuine contact and service. Not a good start!

  26. Shiel vested. Thought it would happen so I’m glad I went with Old Mac on field instead.

    Not so happy I went with Smith ahead of Kennedy though. Kids had a blinder SC wise but it funny, I’ve hardly spotted him for some reason.

  27. My POD Parker subbed out.
    Shiel subbed out.
    Captain Goodes with a fairly showerty score.
    Kennedy killing it on my bench.
    Bugg killing it on my bench.

    Good start to the year.

  28. 1st mistake – change my mind on 103 that I’ve had all ps and bring in Mummy;
    2nd mistake – last minute put Shiel on the field and JMac off.
    At least I’m happy I stuck with Mohr.

  32. Suprised but happy with Kennedy, Mohr, Giles, Old Mc and Bugg. Devon & Shiel were ok too. Expected more from Goodsy and Mummy but I think they will improve.

  34. 362 from my 5 Rookie GWS guys, no Swans… happy with that for sure.

    Is there a problem with having a better scoring player on the bench in the first 2 rounds? Doesn’t it only really matter in head to head from round 3?

  35. hey guys, new to supercoach, can you guys give me a rough idea of what an excellent, good, average and bad round 1 score would be? thanks

  36. Eski 83, OldMac 99, Smith 54 and on the bench A.Kennedy 103, Bugg 87, Giles 87. Not bad, but good scores on the bench dissappointing.

  37. Postives for Dazza’s Allstars
    1. Tim Mohr Got him in my side as soon as i heard darley wasnt named
    2..Tom Bugg was very impresive i can see him being a good cash cow.
    3.Toby Greene looked alright outthere
    4.Devin Smith was good early he will get better
    5.Allweek i had the “C” on Mummy and 2 hours before lockout i took it off and its on GAJ atm.
    Negatives
    1.Tim Mohr played well but i left him on the bench
    2.Mummy and Goodes LIFTFORF#CKSAKE
    3.I had Kennedy in my side but swapped him for Wilson who i have on the ground.

  38. Impressed by GWS, lets just say that they did better than Gold Coast in their first game.
    If this round is anything to go by, I’d say I picked the right rookies..
    Bugg, Smith, Shiel, Giles & Kennedy
    Must say though, having dealt with GC last year, I was a bit more prepared for this.

  39. I couldn’t be happier with my start to the season. Mummy as VC loophole, Conigs, Sheil and D. Smith all on the ground and Bugg and Kennedy as my emergencies. Friggin awesome! Thank f*ck it’s not H2H.

  42. 300/4/GAJ

    Mummy, Goodes, Coniglio, D Smith

    Both rookies looked good although didn’t score well so no panic.

    Giles,Bugg,A Kennedy on the bench not great decisions but no H2H and all scored excellent meaning great milking potential ahead

    Overall very pleased to be honest with only slight regret not picking up
    oldmcdonald….he looked good but might get two from the mrp

  43. 568/GAJ/7
    Bugg, McD, Shiel, Mumford, Goodes, D.Smith, Kennedy
    Bench: Giles, Cameron.

    Traded out malceski and Parker @ last minute so quite happy first up. Hope old mc doesn’t get rubbed out though. Only regret so far was having Shiel on field when it was a fair chance he’d be subbed. Also, who said Mohr wouldn’t score well?!

  44. woke up this morning to 443 on field from mummy, old mac, kennedy, bugg and d smith….very happy indeed! was hoping mummy got more involved, but all in all a great start from my rooks!

  45. 617/8/GAJ
    Mumford; Parker; Goodes; Adam Kennedy; Shiel; Bugg; Giles; Devon Smith,
    not a bad start to the round, thought Goodsy and Mummy may have scored better

  46. 298/4/GAJ, Bugg, Coniglio, Smith and Mummy with Shiel , Giles and Old Mac (E) on the bench, just a bit impressed with the way the Giants went about playing, coz there would have been a shite load of nerves and they made the swans look a bit ordinary at times, except on the scoreboard. Who said they wont win a game this year? Lookout Port, Melb, Lions and Suns!

  47. Coniglio, D Shiel, A Kennedy, Bugg, D Smith, Giles and Goodes.

    reasonably happy with how the youngsters went. not all of them scored well but showed the talent that will suggest bigger scores in the future. very happy.

  48. 319/4/GAJ
    Had Mummy, Coniglio, Smith and Kennedy on the field and Bugg, Giles and Shiel on the pine. Not too bad considering and it at least means that the cows will be ready for milking in no time. Here’s hoping that Old Mac gets a couple of weeks so that he can be a downgrade target in round 5. The biggest unknown is who will make way when the older GWS blokes come back. Power, Scully, Brogan and Setanta.

  49. 236/4/NDS

    Pissed off I left Kennedy on the bench. Other than that I feel ok. Had Bugg, Coniglio, Shiel and Devon Smith on field. If cripps doesn’t play I’ll get Kennedy’s as I had him as an emergency player.

  50. 4/341 on field. I’ll take that.

    Does hurt having 4/314 on the bench though. Went with Clarke and Ellis ahead of Bugg so that will probably cost me a few points with at least one of them. Got Pffffr and Smedts in my forward line atm so if one of them doesn’t get named then I’ve got a big call to make to possibly take Kennedy’s ton.

  51. Superb blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?

    There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Many thanks!
