SCT Cup: Quarter Final Match-Ups

Quarter Finals time. This is where things start to really heat up. This is when you need all 22 firing. This is when you need the loopholes working to their optimum. This is where you need to nail the VC or have a sturdy C to bring things home. This is the real stuff.


This week I’ve focussed on the PODs in each match up. This is based on the 22 players who’s scores counted so this doesn’t include failed loopholes nor does it include players missing last week (Selwood, Greene, Williams, etc…). There’s some real unique options in the eight teams, Andrew Gaff standing out as someone I wasn’t expecting to see.


1 – Power rangers (282) Doch, TMitch, Merrett, Oliver, Macrae, Roberton, Hibberd, Witts, Nank, Steele, Tuohy, SPP


8 – Merky’s Premiers (2110) Dusty, Zorko, Rocky, Harbrow, Grundy, Ryder, Howe, Rance, Buddy, Newman, Greenwood, Mountford

There’s clearly more than one way to skin a cat with 12 PODs in this battle of the two hot teams in the comp. Last fortnight they were the #1 and #2 scoring teams. Both teams will be looking to upgrade their 22nd man to increase their scoring potential.


2 – Griggsy FC (329) TMitch, Bont, Rocky, Adams, Laird, Hibberd, Shaw, Ryan


7 – Rockliff_Nroll@SCT (2066) Zorko, Oliver, Wines, Howe, Simpson, Buddy, Newman, Tuohy

Assuming Ryan was played as a loophole or as injury cover otherwise I’m baffled how Griggsy is ranked so high in the overall. Rockliff_Nroll looks full premo but might need a few of Griggy’s super elite to have a down fortnight to notch the win.


3 – Bunchakhuuunts (985) Oliver, Roberton, Ryder, Gray, Lynch, Shaw


6 – MaccasMaulersSCT (1689) Pendles, Martin, Adams, Nank, Newman, Greene

Two very similar teams in this H2H. Macca’s PODs look much stronger than Buncha’s but Lynch is such a yo-yo scorer that if he were to have two big weeks it could be the difference.


4 – Bustling Barrys (1013) GAJ, Treloar, Heeney, Gaff, Roberton, Hibberd, Buddy, White


5 – The Phat Side @SCT (1599) Dusty, Merrett, JPK, Goldy, Ryder, Simpson, Shaw, SPP

Seems like there’s a groundswell of support for the people’s champ, Yiorgakis who is coming home strong. I like his PODs more than Barry’s although I’d hope Yiorgakis has the trades to upgrade SPP and maybe ditch Shaw.

  1. I reckon Ablett being out will hurt Barry this week as Greene will slow down Macca a tad. If Buddy can go large against the Suns, then RockliffNRoll is in with a big chance against Griggsy………


    1. Sad face here … last few weeks have been terribly disappointing for me after a pretty (IMO) good year for me with smart trades etc (Sloane now not counted as one of those smart trades!!)

      The greene trade from last week continues to haunt me … as did the ablett trade from a few weeks before that … now hurting in the CUP and the OA rankings …


  2. adams and pendles going puss for me and Shaw picks this week to pick his game up for Bunchakk … in trouble in the cup now!!
