Witherden is fast becoming Docherty 2.0 and I reckon Brisbane will be hoping to retain this one this time. He now joins a short list of people (7) to collect 20+ disposals in their first 6 AFL/VFL games with another standout performance across half back with 28 disposals (18 kicks) at 75% DE. He registered his second SuperCoach tonne with his 103 points also coming from 5 marks and 4 tackles. If he can pull his overall average above 90 this weekend I will graduate him to the senior list as with a 3 round average of 99.3 he is well and truly holding down D4-6 for some. Do me proud.

Ryan responded well from his post derby cheeky alcoholic beverage axing to take charge from Freo’s backline with 25 disposals (19 kicks!) at 88% DE to go with a game high 8 rebound 50s, game high 14 marks and game high 6 tackles on his was to a game high 136 points. Not bad cover for those Lloyd owners 😉

Scharenberg seems to be playing a game of hokey pokey and this time he was IN for his best game of the season to date. Registering a game high 11 marks, he went on to post 86 points courtesy of 24 disposals (12 kicks) at 67% DE with a tackle and a couple of 1%ers. The third decent rookie who was welcomed on field in defence to cover late outs. Will he feature next week on the rookie review? Tune in Thursday!

The Glass was half empty this week scoring just 43 points in comparison to his debut score of 84. Collected 11 disposals (7 kicks) and was very clean with the ball failing to miss a target all night but his score was held back due to only having the 2 contested possessions and almost no other stat with just 3 marks and 1 tackle. Not a bad downgrade option, even if not named given DPP, low cost but with questionable scoring potential and JS, he is not one you want to be counting on this time of the year.

Skinner made his debut and was able to kick a couple of goals (yes, listed as a defender) to finish up on 62 points. He also collected 9 disposals (4 kicks) at 78% DE to go with 3 tackles. Kicking 33% of their goals on the weekend, he would be stiff to lose his spot.

Keath had a few more touches this week with 10 disposals (7 kicks) but only went at 70% DE to go with 5 clangers and 7 1%ers (5 less than last week) which when all combined together, dropped his score from last week to 47. On the bubble but shaky JS with Lever still to come back and will more than likely make way this week or the next.

Scrimshaw got a second crack at it to post 64 points from 12 disposals (6 kicks) at a third team high DE of 92%. He was pretty quite regardless with only 4 marks, 1 tackle and 1 1%er so relied heavily on hitting the target to boost his score. On the bubble but being rather expensive is quite irrelevant which is indicated by the 41 people trading him in last round only 21 this week to date.

Allison debuted against West Coast and collected 20 disposals at 75% DE but only scored the 53 points as he was very handball happy with 14 but also only had the 3 contested possessions. Apart from 5 tackles, he was rather quite with just 1 tackle, 1 bounce and 1 behind to round out his stats.

The Perryman can be paid his fare and moved on after another low score of 42 points from 11 disposals (8 kicks) at 73% DE and 7 marks. He has now played 8 games and with only 2 of those being greater than his BE of 78, he is a good chance to bleed some cash first week of finals.

Cox was the second Docker returning for the post derby drinking but didn’t quite step up on return scoring about his average with 50 from 11 disposals (7 kicks) at 82% DE, 6 marks ad 3 tackles. His BE of 35 should hover around this mark for the remainder of the season and with 6 scores between 30-61 he has done most of cash rises. Not one to be relying on for much longer he’s one who can be said goodbye to.

Spencer made his debut and collected 12 disposals (6 kicks) at 67% DE to go with 6 marks and 5 1%ers for 47 points. Basement price but not much else going on for him this time of year.

Goodbye for now: Perryman, Cox and Keath

MyersEss$297.3k (+$22.0k)725831
MountfordNM$259.4k (+$6.7k)6356.630

Oh Myers, why are you doing this to us? Knocking up a 72 to keep his average above 70 since coming back, he had 19 disposals (7 kicks) at 68% DE with an equal team second high 10 contested possessions he also had 3 tackles and a goal assist. It’s taken him 10 games but he’s finally pushed his price up over $150k!

Partington was yet another rookie to make his debut over the last fortnight as coaches start blooding the rookies and ruining their 2018 prices. Partington has been pushing since before the byes with best on ground performances in the WAFL before the byes but was finally let loose against Brisbane. He joins the club of players kicking a goal in their AFL debut to go with 16 disposals (8 kicks) at 69% DE, 3 marks and 3 tackles but 4 clangers pulled his score slightly down to 58 points.

Mountford saw plenty of the ball with 16 disposals (7 kicks) at 69% DE. He finished up on a decent rookie score with 63 due to 7 contested possessions but a very uncharacteristic tackle count of 1 really held back his score this week. As mentioned, the 41 has now dropped from his price cycle dropping his BE to 30 which should see his price steadily grow for the rest of the season but really only has one more semi-decent rise.

Setterfield wasn’t able to back up his flashy debut collecting just 6 disposals to go with 4 tackles, 2 marks and 3 clangers for 26 points. On the bubble, can definitely be passed on.

Goodbye for now: Setterfield

DarcyFrem$299.4k (+$23.0k)647329

Darcy was set to have a mammoth task against Mumford this week but with him being injured, Simpson got the call up for his first AFL game since 2015. Simpson is still no easy task and won the ruck ruck dual over Darcy with 44-30 hitouts. Simpson finished up on 91 points as he was helped with 9 disposals, 4 marks, 5 tackles and a behind compared to Darcy’s 64 courtesy of also 9 disposals, 5 tackles but with just the 2 marks.

Greenwood (MID)Adel$386.5k (-$4.4k)5183.678
SchoenmakersHaw$296.8k (+$6.4k)4665.468
YoungWB$172.0k (+$54.7k)4864.7-24
White (MID)Port$268.4k (-$9.2k)3560.384
Bolton (MID)Rich$208.0k (+$9.0k)384948

This was the week for Greenwood to shine. Many SuperCoaches relying on Greenwood and with Sloane set to cop the Levi tag, Brad Crouch out injured and Pyke saying he would get more midfield time, you were alicking your lips. Unfortunately, Grundy and pies midfield negated this as he posted his lowest score for the season, 51 points, from 15 disposals (7 kicks) at 73% DE and 2 marks but just the 3 tackles for him this week which meant his missed a decent chunk of potential points. Hopefully he can bounce back after losing some cash value in Rd19 to fill some of the void Dangerfield will leave.

Schoenmakers had his lowest score for the season with 46 despite kicking 2 goals/1 behind, having 10 disposals (7 kicks) at 60% DE and 6 marks (2 contested). With that though, his BE has jumped to 68 and I give him about 20% chance of not losing money so not a bad time to say goodbye.

Young welcomed his 10,000 new owners with his lowest score of his first 3 games, 48 points. He just had the 8 disposals (6 kicks) at 88% DE to go with 4 marks, 1 tackle and a 1%er.

White lost just under $10k scoring 35 points. With two price drops in a row and a BE of 84, it’s time to move him on.

McKay only collected the 4 disposals (3 kicks) but was able to kick both an early and a late goal but given a 10 goal defeat, his chances were well and truly limited. On the bubble, but with Carlton on the up, it looks like he could have been a decent starting rookie next year.

Bolton finally got a recall after kicking a bag of 5 a fortnight ago in the VFL but failed to impact in the 33 point win with just 5 disposals (3 kicks), 2 marks and 2 tackles to post 38 points. Dropping his average down to 49 with a BE of 48, goodbye Bolton.

Goodbye for now: WhiteSchoenmakers and Bolton

With the regular SuperCoach season behind us, the rookie relevance has significantly decreased for the remaining round and with that, the coming weeks will just feature the stats tables.

Goodluck in the finals coaches and in particular, forum regulars Bearded Burblers (in 2 leagues!), JimmyDee (in 2 leagues!), Alex and AndyBull who I have match up with this week. Thankfully I have a double chance in all 😉
