The original and the best. Your #1 resource for daily AFL SuperCoach tips and analysis.
My team is changing daily and think I’m getting closer to locking it in for RD 1. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Lloyd, Ryan, Ridkey, Whitfield, Gibcus, McCartin (SDK, Loop)
Steele, Satan, Macrae, Neale, Rowell, Berry, JHF, Daicos (Soligo, MacDonald, McComb)
Gawn, Grundy (Dixon)
Butters, Dunks, Cogs, Brodie, Baldwin, McCentee (Hayes + Essendon 102k)
Rachele or Brodie? That’s my big dilemma.
TU- Rayner and midfield rookie
TD- Berry and fwd rookie
seems pretty unanimous to me
This is my team this year. Its about my fifth year of SuperCoach and i had a ripper year last season, some things im not keen on is the 3 hawk rookies on the bench and the weak foward line. I have been switching and swapping players in the past few weeks so If you lads have any feedback it would be much appicated.
Ridley, J. Short, Whitfield, Hewett, Sinn, P. McCartin. (Gibcus, S de Koning)
Macrae, Steele, T. Miller, Neale, Rowell, J. Berry, JHF, N. Daicos. (J. Ward, C. MacDonald, Long)
Gawn, Grundy. (J. Hayes)
Dunkley, Butters, Coniglio, Xerri, Rachele, C. Durdin. (N. Martin, H. Dixon)
Of course some rookies i have may not get a game so ill have to wait for the teams to make a final decision. Im happy for any feed back and suggetions.
Nice team, very structurally sound. I’ve pretty much got the exact same thing – not much to add lol.
Honestly, I’d sit on that till teamsheets.
Best of luck!
Spiller? Great team mate, very similar to mine
Crisp, Ridley, Short, Whitfield, Hewitt, Chapman (McCartin, Uwland)
Macrae, Touk, Neale, Cripps, Rowell, Berry, Daicos, Ward (MacDonald, Hough, Long)
Grundy, English (Hayes)
Dunkley, Butters, Coniglio, Brodie, Rachele, De Koning (Martin, Dixon)
Love the team but am a bit concerned about forward line as is a bit weak. I think that defence has to be very strong because of lack of rookies. Any idea how to make team better or is this good?
Hewett to rookie and then I can get a 200-300k forward and extra cash to beef rookies?
Thoughts please – on field
T/U Hewitt and Martin
T/D Chapman and Ralphsmith
Naish seems like he will have a pretty good role on the wing for the Eagles, especially with all the injuries they have. Personally, I would pick him, but could go either way
I think they both have decent job security. Naish has better role security . Hugo could be moved out of defence with Vlastuin back in. Hugo could still work. I just think now with Kelly ( Covid) now missing makes Naish look even better.
The game needs more variance for team creation.
Something along the lines of smaller strategies.
Eg, select two fwd from the same team and they both get 2 goals in a game you get +50pts. Or two mids from the same team get 25+disposals get bonus points, 2 def get 4 intetcep marks bonus points.
3 players or 5-6 players do a similar achievement get bonus points.
Something to make teams a bit different other than 4 or so players.
The only way I could see more variation in team selection is lowering the salary cap. That way you are forced into the mid-pricers in order to field enough consitient scoring players each week.
I have degrees in nuclear physics, quantum mechanics, relativity theorems, and several other phd’s such as mathematical algorithms derived from pi, but I dont think I could develop a scoring model for this !!
And a black belt in origami?
Not a good idea for smoker !!
Which Im not
With how consistently you think the Dons will win the flag, you’re smokin’ something Wighty!
T/U- Cripps and McCartin
T/D – Rowell and Chapman
Lloyd , Ryan , Ridley , Hewett, Gibcus, McCartin
Macrea, Miller , Oliver , Neale , Rowell, Berry ,
Horne Francis , Daicos , Ward , Macdonald , Cox
Grundy, English Hayes
Dunkley , Butters ,Coniglio, Mcgovern , Xerri , Rachelle , Baldwin , Dixon.
Running two teams and I am so split between them! Would absolutely love some feedback here…
DEF: crisp short Ridley Whitfield Sinn McCartin (O’Driscoll de koning)
MID: Macrae Miller Neale Rowell Berry JHF Daicos Ward (MacDonald DStephens soligo)
RUCK: Gawn Grundy (Hayes)
FWD: Dunkley heeney Butters Cogs xerri Rachele (Martin Dixon)
DEF: crisp short Whitfield Hewett sinn McCartin (O’Driscoll de koning)
MID: Macrae Steele Miller Neale Rowell JHF Daicos (ward macdonald Soligo)
RUCK: Gawn English (Hayes)
FWD: Dunkley Butters Cogs xerri McGovern Rachele (Martin Dixon)
It’s basically Steele, English, McGovern and Hewett VS ward, Grundy, Heeney and Ridley.
I hate losing an uber in the midfield but it really strengthens my side down forward, back and ruck….. English FYI would eventually swing forward he’s not my season R2 just gives me a chance to weigh up Grundy and Darcy
Or I can axe Ridley in TU and go Hewett D4 and Chapman D5 to bat a bit deeper I don’t trust hinge gibcus or Sinn onfield to be reliable week to week. Let us know ya thoughts
Have played around with different structures but have landed here, any quick suggestions would be much appreciated cheers.
Backs: Ridley, Short, Hewitt, Chapman, Gibcus, Mccartin (de Koning, o’Driscoll)
Mids: McCrae, Miller, Brayshaw, Neale, Rowell, Berry, JHF, Daicos (Ward, D.Stephens, Cmac)
Rucks: Gawn, Grundy (Dixon)
Forwards: Dunkley, Dusty, Butters, Cogs, Rachele, Baldwin ( Hayes, Hollands)
Obviously back line is my weakest line at this point but I’m backing Hewitt in to score close to premo points early doors and I think my midfield depth will make enough money early to upgrade down back asap. Have toyed with losing dusty to upgrade other spots but my gut feel is that he’s in for a big year and I’m backing him in.
TU: Ridley D2 & Hinge D5
TD: Hewett D4 & Chapman D5
Defence line as it stands
Crisp short Whitfield McCartin – Sinn de koning
DEF; Crisp, Short, Whitfield, Sicily, Sinn, McCartin (O’driscoll, De Koning)
MID; Macrae, Miller, Oliver, Neale, Rowell, JHF, Daicos, Ward (Hollands, Soligo, Macdonald)
RUCK; Gawn & Grundy (Dixon)
FWD; Dunkley, Butters, Coniglio, Brodie, Ralphsmith, Rachele (McEntee, Hayes)
Been changing this around a fair bit. Not massively keen on the Sicily pick however I don’t have the funds to go upto Lloyd at this stage. Please don’t suggest hewett as I don’t rate that pick. Need to try and come up with funds to have on hand in case Sinn isn’t named also.
Currently have $11,900 ITB.
Would downgrade Grundy to a Primo ruck in the 500k range for extra funds. RoB (Adelaide) or Hickey (Swans) seem a good pickup and have a friendly bye (rd13)
TU: Hewitt at D4, Ward starting in Mid
TD: Chapman at D4, Upgrade Stephens to Berry
Hey guys, quick question regarding round 1 teams.
When will all the lineups for round 1 come out? because for my team the rookies that are selected drastically change how my structure will look, however, I wont be able to make those changes if the teams come out on thursday night, after the melbourne vs dogs game, So i am hoping all the teams will come out on wednesday night.
Melbourne v Bulldogs are posted Tuesday.
Carlton v Richmond – Wednesday
The rest of the teams on Thursday
damn that sucks for me. I was waiting to see if sinn was playing. If he was I would probably end up taking out English, however, wont be able to do that unless port say he is debuting before the teams are released
Port Adelaide are the best at naming their teams early, especially debutantes.
Correct CT. With rolling lockout, it shouldn’t be that difficult to manage. Only prob would be going for Sunday rookies named in extended lists only for them not to play. We all start equal in this problem. And you are also right…most teams announce starting rookies early for the pr, especially r1.
TU; Sicily d4, Ward m8, NO berry
TD; Chapman d4, Berry m6, Ward bench cover
TU- Hewett, Berry and fwd rookie
TD- Blakely, JHF and Xerri
Going back and forth with this one.
T/U Hewett but no Rowell.
T/D Chapman with Rowell.
Trying to fit in both Berry/Rowell with bench cover across all lines is proving stressful and the season hasn’t even started yet. Cheers
Hey guys, have been playing around a bit but would love to hear thoughts on this.
B: Lloyd, Crisp, Ridley, Whitfield, Sinn, W. Kelly (De Koning, Voss)
M: Macrae, Steele, Neale, Cripps, Berry, JHF, Daicos, J. Ward (Stephens, Uwland, Tsitas)
R: Darcy, Grundy (Hayes)
F: Dunkley, De Goey, Heeney, Cogs, Rachele, McCartin (Hollands, Martin)
I would look to strengthen the back line as you potentially have two non-playing rookies on field.
This is a team I am toying with in case the backline rookies I am counting on don’t come up.
I know my midfield is light on, however I see that as the place to get the best cash generation with reliable rookies/midpricers.
DEF: Lloyd, Crisp, Short, Whitfield, Sicily, Gibcus (DeKoning, Uwland LOOP).
MID: Steele, Petracca, Neale, Rowell, Berry, JHF, Daicos, Ward (D.Stephens, C.Stephens, MacDonald).
RUC: Grundy, Darcy (Dixon).
FWD: Dunkley, Butters, Cogs, Brodie, Xerri, Rachele (Martin, McCartin).
T/U: 3 mid premos and Gibcus (miss out on Rowell and field 2 def rookies)
T/D: 2 mid premos, Rowell and Sicily +50k cash (miss out on Steele or Miller, only field one defensive rookie, but only 2 of JHF, Daicos and Ward)
TU – Crisp, McDonald, McGovern
TD – Ridley, Berry, Durdin
Which Zac is better at F2?
Feel like I need an upgrade somewhere but need help working out where. $47,800 ITB
B: Lloyd, Crisp, Whitfield, Chapman, Gibcus, Sinn (de Koning, O’Driscoll)
M: Macrae, Steele, Neale, Cripps, Rowell, Berry, JHF, Daicos ( Ward, Tsitas, Uwland)
F: Dunkley, Butters, Heeney, Coniglio, Rachele, McCartin (Hollands, Martin)
Nice structure, especially 3 premium forwards. Not sure about Sinn as a starter though.
Backs need fixing
Still a bit rough but this will do until team lists

Not too worried by the rookies atm
Can you go three uber deep in the midfield and be okay this year? Macrae Steele & Neale with Rowell and berry ..
TU: completely fine it’s a backward year
TD: no ya crazy you need 4 uber deep mid

Gibcus probably more likely starter than Hinge and McCartin? Dusty nice POD.
In a team that almost changes daily here it is at time of report.
J Loyd, L Whitfield, J Sicily, J McInnery, S DeKoning, N O’Driscoll, J Sinn, C Dean.

B Grundy, S Darcy, J Hayes
J Dunkley, A Treloar, I Heeney, Z Butters, C Rayner, S Cognilio, E Hollands, H Dixon
No doubt it will change in the next week but any advice would be appreciated
Remove Dean and Clark their both injured and won’t play for the first half of the season. Recommend going Paddy McCartin/Josh Gibcus and Dylan Stephens.
Excited for another year of Supercoach, so here’s my team so far.
DEF: Lloyd, Crisp. Whitfield, Hewett, Hinge, McCartin (Sinn, O’Driscoll)
MID: Macrae, Steele, Oliver, Neale, J.Berry, JHF, N.Daicos, Ward (D.Stephens, Hollands, MacDonald)

FWD: Dunkley, Butters. Cogs, Brodie, Rachele, Durdin (SDK, N.Martin)
$31,500 in the bank
Any advice or feedback is greatly appreciated!!
Nice Team, Super Strong mids and decent def but I’d go Sinn to Gibcus if you can get there
Last bench place. If both named:
Similar numbers in the preseason game. Encouraged by WCE comments on debuts. Currently have Stephens (If I had the cash I would go D.Stephens but can’t get there)
Is Gibcus a must have?
I have Hinge and considering going to Gibcus (My team can be seen a couple above this one)
TU – Yes must have, get in your team
TD – Hinge is better option
Hey guys need help with this one
T/U Whitfield (D3), Chapman (D4), Grundy (R2)
T/D Short (D3), Whitfield (D4), Witts (R2)
Think I am going around in circles here. New team for the VI thread. Gone from having stronger def, then strong mids, then strong fwd back to strong Def. Less guesswork in Def.
Not sold on JHF, Heeney, Whitfield, Xerri. Currently have Xerri which is more a wait and see. If JHF smashes it and Xerri fails can be an easy swap at the same price point sub Maginness to fwds.
Would love to have Touk but don’t want Touk and Rowell in the same starting side. Would love Steele especially for the easy start Saints have but can’t fit him in. Think Cripps can get back to form with an improving Carlton side and will easily be M7 or 8 (more so than Rowell). Fwds are mostly value picks as I can see replacing the whole lot except Dunkley.
Def – Lloyd, Crisp, Ridley, Short, Gibcus, Mccartin (De Koning, Akuei)
Mid – Macrae, Oliver, Neale, Cripps, Rowell, Berry, Daicos, Ward (C.Stephens, MacDonald, Maginness)

After weeks of restarting and changing I think I’m set..
Pick it apart lads . What needs to change
Only two days left for this thread
T/U You beauty
T/D How sad
TU: D. Stephens & S. Darcy
TD: N. O’Driscoll & M. Gawn
Bearing in mind that Stephens/O’Driscoll will start the year on the bench for me
TU – Ridley D2 & Brodie F4
TD – Heeney/Treloar F2 & chapman D5
Tossing around between the following combinations in my side to finalise my structure. Which is the better?
TU; Champman/ Steele/ Berry
TD; Lloyd/ Cripps/ Ward
hey boys, anyone have any thoughts on TK. He may be in for a big year with injuries to Sheed, Yeo, Shuey uncertain, etc. Let me know your thoughts. Cheers.
Maybe, but he will not be playing round 1.
In isolation due to health and safety protocols.
TU – Brayshaw + Berry
TD – Cripps and Serong
This is my final draft before The First Defenestration (copyright Father Dougal):
Crisp, Short, Whitfield, Sicily, Hewett, McCartin (Gibcus, De Koning)
Macrae, Oliver, Neale, Rowell, Berry, JHF, Daicos, Ward (DStephens, MacDonald, Hough)
Gawn, Marshall (Hayes)
Dunkley, Heeney, Butters, Coniglio, Rachele, Baldwin (Durdin, NMartin)
I remain thoroughly unconvinced in several areas, most notably leaving out Jack Steele after nominating him as my first picked just a few weeks ago! The lack of rookie defenders has forced my hand there unfortunately.
Hello Chillo !
I have had looked at this kind of structure and I just can’t do it. I need at least 3 big mids and Neale. Even if Rowell holds on to M8, recruiting 4 other midfielders is going to be tough. They are all likely $580K+ Thats a heap of cash to find in a rookie dry year. I also want the option of recruiting at least 2 of the Defenders I don’t start. Guys like Lloyd , Dawson , Stewart. There are also guys like Pendles and McGrath that may get Defender status at R6. I really think you limit yourself starting Sicliy and Hewett. I actually prefer Hewett as he can at least swing with Daicos ( hopefully ) after R6 . I’m confident Sinn gets named. If he’s not he’s playing early, I’m temped to start him on my bench anyway as an early loop.
I’m trying to say I think there will be enough rookies in defence to run 2 on field
You may know better than me, you were here when I started ! I’m just not sure that the Defenstration you predict is that dire.I have decided to sacrificed an effigy to the SuperCoach gods, so that Kemp and Hinge may appear healthy and ready to play 😉
Maybe I’m just in denial ?
Actually don’t change it , you’re probably right, and I will eat my words. I haven’t really been helpful have I ?
Good luck Chillo !
Haha thanks mate! No you are exactly right, and I have been switching between Sicily and Hewett all pre-season. The lack of def rooks forced me to put both in and sacrifice the mid premo you mentioned.
Of course, should Hinge and/or Kemp and/or Sinn beat my expectations and be named for round 1, then I’ll have to do some rearranging. The hard choice then will be Steele or Miller?
Fun times coming up!
I’ve actually got Miller now ( my team still says Steele oops )
The Saints look like sliders this year and although the stricter interoperation of the holding the ball rule should help his game. I just feel he may lack the support to repeat last year, at least early. I’m clutching at straws really.I will still try to get him in as early as possible . I do like Miller. He does look to have better support from a fit Rowell and resurgent Witts ( he didn’t have a tap ruck man all last year ) Anderson takes Greenwoods role. This is shaping as a competitive midfield.
Miller also has more Sunday games so is great as a fall back Captain.
Miller for me, just.
Best of luck in 2022.
Nice side chillo I think this is the structure to start DEF down to f5 plus rookies Mids 4 plus Rowell and rookies Fwds 2/3 FWDs plus all the playing cheapies GOOD LUCK
My team is pretty basic and I would like to find ways to improve so comment ideas, please.
Def- lloyd, ridley, short, whitfield, gibcus, mccartin (W.Kelly,SDK)
Mid- Macrae, steele, miller, neale, J.Berry, N.Daicos, Ward, Stephens (Macdonald, hough, long)
Ruc- Gawn, Grundy (Hayes)
Fwd- Dunkley, Duncan, Coniglio, Brodie, Rachele, N.Martin (C.Durdin, Dixon)
Overall this team leaves me with $47,400 to spend
Duncan is struggling to be ready for round 1, even if he is, you don’t want one of your high priced premos with an injury cloud.
other than that is looks like a good team
Not sure where to put this question and may be an obvious answer and probably asked a thousand times however; can you use the new trade boost during bye rounds giving you 4 trades?
TD D.Stephens and cash
If I drink enough Red Bull there will be zero sleeps until round 1 starts! Solid plan!!
Crisp Short Whitfield
Hewett Chapman McCartin

Crisp, Short, Whitfield and Hewett is who I’m going with Tim.
Think this is it. Pretty happy with the team but please go ahead and completely tear it apart.

FWD: Josh Dunkley (FWD/MID), Zac Butters, Stephen Cognilio (FWD/MID), Will Brodie (FWD/MID), Tristan Xerri, Josh Rachele (FWD/MID), (Elijah Hollands (FWD/MID)(E), Jack Hayes (FWD/RUC)
Please please please tear it apart as much as you can. Rip it to pieces. Thank you so much.
Might need another cheap defender as backup maybe swap Kelly into the forwards for Holland’s and use the money for Hinge,Gibcus and change Comben too Dixon
Hello AJ .
I like the Premo’s, I just think you need to replace a few rookies .
Wormer, Hollands and your defensive bench won’t play. look at getting in some warm bodies.
You’ve saved 50K so you should be able to make a few work. If you swap Hayes for Comben (not likely )and get Martin ( Ess) Forward. McEntee and Baldwin are other forwards that are likely to play.
In defence we need to spend up . Gibcus or Sinn and McCartin need to come in as warm bodies so you can Bench SDK I’m unsure Kelly plays. This may require re jigging your midfield. Its worth it, you need playing rookies.
Thanks G’Dog and FT, much appreciated.
I was looking through some of the teams on this site and they all seem to be quite low on mids and have quite a few premo defenders. Can anyone explain to me why that is?
Hi Anonymous Jude,
Because of the expected dearth of defensive rookies. Many have insulated themselves from the chaos of non playing rookies by fortifying their backline by having more premo’s and/or cow like objects.
The midfield seems to have a plethora of potential playing rookies.
After all, having playing cash cows is the goal to enable us to improve our teams.
Good luck for 2022.
Hi after much deliberation l think that I’ve settled on my team, maybe
Def: Crisp,Ryan,Ridley, Whitfield, Hinge, McCartin( DeKoning, O’Driscoll)
Mid: Steele, Oliver, Neale,Cripps,Serong,JHF,Daicos,Ward(D Stephens,Macdonald,Hough)
Fwd: Dunkley,Heeney,Butters,Cog,Curnow,Rachele(Kelly, Hayes)
Hopefully have enough cover and have taken into account dual position upgrades
Any feedback is welcome
I love Serong as a player but in SC he’s just too awkwardly priced .He still has managed minutes and although a breakout candidate , he’s very unlikely to go 105
Get in Rowell or Berry they should average similar, Rowell maybe more.They are both significantly cheaper, and therefore will make $$. I’m sure you will find a creative solution for the extra cash.
Maybe upgrade Witts ?
Thinking the same, just not sure yet to do with the extra cash, will probably keep Witts at the moment but not totally sold on him, thanks very much for the feedback , have swapped Serong to Rowell,had( Berry early but concerned Brisbane has so many midfield options,) which makes Witts even more valuable? Leaves me $117,200 mmmmmm what too do with the extra cash
Swing Mccartin Forward and get in my boy Chapman. Curnow is made of glass. 😉
Or you just go Curnow to the Gov.
Both good options thanks, really appreciate it
TD – Oliver
Alright quick rebuild.
DEF: J Lloyd, L Whitfield, J Sicily, G Hewett, J Sinn, J Gibcus (SDK, [Insert player])
MID: J Macrae, J Steele, L Neale, P Cripps, M Rowell, JHF, N Daicos, J Ward, (D Stephens, B Uwland, [Insert Player])
RUC: B Grundy, S Darcy (H Dixon)
FWD: J Dunkley, Z Butters, S Cognilio, W Brodie, T Xerri, J Rachele, (P McCartin, [Insert Player])
Just redid my team. 3 spots I am undecided on. With about 600k I can get 2 rookies and a 300k player. Please give ideas.
Am thinking Hinge and McEntee/N Martin, and then a mid range mid
And if I do go with this option
Sure up your Def. Go Chapman as your mid pricer
Is 4 players from 1 team too many? or does it not matter, if they are good, shouldn’t matter what team. dont want to name the players either.
TU: too many
TD: its fine
would love to hear some thoughts too, dont want to name the players, just want to
Main worry is if there is a COVID outbreak (ref: Eagles), it’s going to really knock your team around
T/U – Cripps + Chapman
T/D – Ridley + D.Stephens
Get clicking team, thanks 🙂
TU – Ridley
TD – Short
Thank you Coaches.
posted full team to get an idea of full structure 🙂 but in summary it’s:
TU – Steele, Sinn, gibcus & McGovern
TD- ward, Hewett, chapman & heeney
I have TU probably giving me 310 pts a week and TD giving me 330 but miss jack Steele.
Defence – crisp short Whitfield hinge Sinn McCartin (gibcus de koning)
Midfield – Macrae Steele Miller Neale Rowell Berry JHF Daicos (ward Stephens MacDonald)
Ruck – gawn Grundy (Dixon)
Forwards – dunks butters Cogs McGovern xerri rachele (Martin Hayes)
Defence – crisp short Whitfield Hewett chapman hinge (McCartin de koning)
Midfield – Macrae Miller Neale Rowell Berry JHF Daicos ward (soligo Stephens MacDonald)
Ruck – gawn Grundy (Dixon)
Forwards – dunks heeney butters Cogs xerri rachele (Martin Hayes)
Final selection for my team.
TU: Ridley & McGovern
TD: Heeney & Hewett
It looks like the below …
DEF: crisp Ridley short Whitfield chapman hinge (McCartin de koning)
FWD: Dunkley butters cogs McGovern xeri Rachele (Martin Hayes)
DEF: crisp short Whitfield Hewett chapman hinge (McCartin de koning)
FWD: Dunkley Heeney butters cogs xeri Rachele (Martin Hayes)
McComb the Hunter replacement???
TU – Oliver and Sinn

Can afford two of the three. Please like the two I should get
TU – Xerri
TU – Brodie
Garryowen Version V
DEF: Lloyd, Short, Whitfield, Sicily, Hewett, McCartin (Sinn / Wilmot)
MID: Macrae, Neale, Cripps, Neale, Rowell, Berry, JHF, Daicos, Ward (D Stephens / MacDonald / Hough
RUCK: Darcy & Grundy (Dixon)
FWD: Dunks, Heeney, Buters, Coniglio, Brodie, Rachele (Durdin, Martin)
$35k in the bank
The big structure change here is going super lean in the mids. No Touk OR Steele. Just feel we have 3 x mid prices that are just too much value to ignore & 3 x rooks that MUST be on field. That only leaves 2 spots for Macrae & Neale.
Absolute best case scenario, I could have 15 keepers here. Clearly relying on Cripps & Rowell to average 100 each but i’d prefer to rely on them, than Chapman, McGovern, Hinge etc that most other s are hoping hit pay dirt (albeit to a lesser extent).
Also seeing soooooo many teams out there that have 2 or 3 def rookies selected that are highly unlikely to play. I know having cheap rooks son the bench looks good and frees up cash but rookies don’t generate cash or provide cover if they ain’t playing. I know I have Wilmot but am backing him to find a way into that Brisbane side in the next couple of weeks with Coleman out.
Am I crazy? Keen to hear your thoughts.
You have some real midprice madness here.
If you think Cripps is a fallen keeper premium who will play all season then your midfield is excellent and you got a jump on everyone else (just like the people who got Arron Hall at 400k last year)
Biggest issue is only 10 real keepers. Id only want 2 of of Heeney/Butters/Sicily/Hewett. Turn one into a mid pricer (value is in the forwards) and then turn 1 or 2 of the defenders into real 500k premos.
what do you think??…
(mids) Macrae.., Steele..,J.Kelly., McInerney..,
Rowell., J.Berry.., N.Daicos.., Ward……[Ralph-Smith.., Macdonald.., Roberts]
(rucks) Grundy.., Marshall……[H.Dixon]
(fwd`s) Dunkley..,Z.Bailey..,Butters.., Cogniglio..
W.Brodie.., Rachelle ……[McCartin.., J.Hayes]….
TU – Sicily
TD – Hewett
TU crisp & Stephens
TD Ridley & JHF
Which option gets more points?
T/U: Grundy, NMartin (F8), Def loop
T/D: Witts, Rayner (McGov/Ralphsmith), Hinge
120 50 = 170
90 75 65 = 230
On paper, you’d go Option #2.
However Option #1 has far less risk, a guaranteed keeper, an occasional C option and loophole flexibility. Option #2 consists of 2x players returning from ACLs and another with a thrice popped shoulder, all have limited ceilings and gives your side a massive injury profile.
I’d go Option #1.
All – as we have started to see here in the AFL news – players already being left out with catching COVID
I also play NRL SC – after this first week of games, starting to hear news now of players being stood down today catching COVID … after just playing … which is good chance team mates infected and opposition infected …
SO – word of warning – this is the main reason we have the extra 5 trades and the trade boost function. Make sure you select as many DPP players across lines that you can … think it will be key this year to having team on park, saving trades and scoring …
Something to consider …
This is as close to guns & rookies as I could make it

Gawn, Grundy (Hayes)
Dunkley, Taranto, Coniglio, Rachelle, McCartin, Baldwin (Martin, Dixon)
I don’t need to explain why I’m picking any player. they are all just good.
TU: English, Cripps & Brodie
TD: Grundy, ward & heeney
Is Cripps back for good or a trap?
TU: an absolute steal start him at M4 with Rowell M5
Ready for the pineapple…
Hotel that is. Good spot to get on the beers and watch a game.
Lloyd Crisp Short Whitfield Gibcus McCartin (Boyd, De Konig)
Macrae Miller Neale Rowell Berry Horne-Francis Daicos Ward (Stephens, MacDonald, Hough)
Grundy Marshall (Hayes)
Dunkley Heeney Butters Coniglio Brodie Xerri (Rachele, Dixon)
Tu- darcy and brodie
Td- witts and treloar/english
i believe witts will average 90-95 and darcy around 120. will the differential with treloar or english be 30 points greater than brodie
Two days out, I’m thinking this will be my side on Wednesday bar a couple of rookies (* indicating that spot won’t be solidified until the teams come out).
DEF: Lloyd, Crisp, Short, Chapman, Gibcus, McCartin (Sinn, *Boyd)
MID: Macrae, Miller, Oliver, Neale, Rowell, JHF, Daicos, Ward (D. Stephens, Hough, Parker
RUC: Gawn, Grundy (Dixon)
FWD: Dunkley, Butters, Coniglio, Brodie, Ralphsmith, Rachele (De Koning, Martin*)
In the backline, Chapman is pretty much my only gamble, but I’m set on playing him. If I had someone else at D4, it would probably be Sicily. But I’d have to downgrade Oliver, Brodie, Ralphsmith or one of my premo rucks to do that, and I’m not wanting to part with any of them. Boyd will obviously depend on if he gets selected, or if a cheaper back rookie gets selected for Rd.1.
Mids are completely set to the bench. Parker will be my loophole+DPP option if I need it.
In the rucks for most of the pre-season, I was set on Nic Nat and Darcy until the last week or so. Nic wasn’t at training today, and Darcy has had a thumb issue I believe (plus I think Freo are looking to share some of the ruck duties between him and Meek). So in the end I’ve gone for the Grawndy combo. It’s the safe pick, and they definitely looked to be the best performing rucks over the pre-season (yet again).
Forwards are mostly set. I really do like the look of Brodie, and I don’t think his scores will be heavily affected once Fyfe returns. Either way, he’ll still make quite a bit of cash I think. I’ve decided to stick with Ralphsmith over Xerri too, I think his scoring has a safer bet to be more consistent. I don’t know if Xerri has the main ruck role over Goldstein, and that’s the part that makes me unsure of his consistency potential. Martin’s spot on the bench will be out of him, Hayes or Baldwin. Whichever of those guys gets the nod this week.
Hey mate I have a very similar set up. Taking a punt on Chapman at d4 also! Instead of Lloyd and ward I have gone Whitfield and free’d up extra cash to get berry in too. All the best this season!!

MID; Macrae, Miller, Neale, Cripps, Rowell, JHF, Daicos, Ward (Stephens, Hough, Macdonald)
DEF; Crisp, Short, Whitfield, Chapman, Hinge, McCartin (O’driscoll, De Koning)

(Stephens, Hough, Macdonald)
Lloyd, Dawson, Ridley, Whitfield, Chapman, Bowey (McCartin, De Koning)
Macrae, Miller, Neale, Berry, JHF, Daicos, Ward, Stephens (Rachele, Sinn, MacDonald)
Gawn, Darcy (J.Hayes)
Dunkley, Butters, Coniglio, McGovern, Brodie, Xerri (Durdin, N.Martin)
Rip into it…
I’d look at getting rid of either Xerri / Brodie / McGovern and swinging Rachelle forward. Then swapping one of Bowey / Chapman to Sinn (via dpp) / Hinge / Gibcus and using the funds to try grab Rowell.
Midfield too light as it stands, along with too many midpricers in the DEF / FWD lines IMO.
Team has been changing regularly but getting close to being confident obviously depending on team selection this week.
Any feedback would be fantastic!
Remaining cash: $65,400.
DEF: Lloyd, Ridley, Short, Whitfield, Hinge, Sinn (W.Kelly, Uwland)
MID: Miller, Oliver, Neale, Cripps, Berry, JHF, N.Daicos, Ward (MacDonald, Tsitas, Soligo)
RUCK: Gawn, Grundy (Hayes)
FWD: Dunkley, Heeney, Butters, Coniglio, P.Mcartin, Rachele (S.De Koning, N.Martin)
Heeney or Butters down to Xerri/McGovern/Brodie
Then Cripps up to uber premium. Cripps will not be a keeper, nor will he make enough money
TU Berry & Xerri
TD Ward & McGovern
I would go TU but if you are able to (through DPP switches), get the two mids in Berry and Ward.
Lloyd, Crisp, Short, Chapman, Gibcus, Mccartin
( Sdk, Kelly )
Macrae, Satan, Parish, Neale, Berry, JHF, Daicos, Ward ( C. Stephens, Macdonald, Hough )
Darcy, Grundy ( Comben )
Dunks, Dusty, Heeney, Cogs, Rachele, Maginness ( Martin, J. Hayes )
Super keen on fielding this team. All comes down to if my playing rookies are being selected to play, just like everyone else.
Gibcus has been confirmed as starting round 1 by Damien Hardwick,
Hinge has concern about shoulder so need to wait for team sheets.
I’ve flirted with two structures . An English/Steele and a gawn lineup…
TU: Steele English Sinn & McGovern
TD: NLong gawn Hewett & Heeney.
My gut wants TU for Steele to go deeper in the midfield and English to finish forward eventually and get a look at my R2 and get a discount on gawn . But head says TD
Fresh RMT up. For those who have posted recently on this one, feel free to re-post under the new RMT for more traction.
