Supercoach Guide: Who are the bargains?

March 6th 2008 02:20

So now you have your team, and 30 blanks spots and you don't know what to do? You have looked at the cash cow topic and have outlined your bench, but before you select your guns you want some good cheap players to fill those extra spots.

These players in the guide below are players that for their price will give excellent value for your money.

Please note there may be some players who are bargains missing from this list, however they are in other guides.a


David Mundy
Price- $427,200
Will be used as a free roaming HBFer this year. He has great disposal and kicks it more then he handpasses. He has been sensational in the preseason.

Andrew Mackie
Price- $417,200
Mackie has given us just a taste of what he has to offer us last year. Used as a linkman means he kicks a lot and also takes lots of marks. Having been used as a forward in the past means Mackie knows where to find the goals.

Sam Gilbert
Price - $406,200
May not get a stack of touches, but gets a lot of contested footy and uses the ball well. A 10 touch game can easily be a 100 point round for Sam. Exactly what we need.

Mark Nicoski
Price - $236,100
Injured player who still has a lot to prove. Has shown glimpses of what he has to offer. If he stays on the park he has to be on your team. He will return well for a defender.

Ed Barlow

Price - $222,800
Has forced his way into Sydney’s 22 and won’t let go. He is a tall utility who has been compared to Adam Goodes. Kicks goals and racks up the touches, perfect for SuperCoach.


Matthew Rosa
Price - $443,400
Rosa will take a more prominent role in the West Coast midfield. Uses the ball well and kicks goals. Get on him

Joel Selwood
Price - $414,900
May be used off half back this year and will be prolific in his ball winning. Seriously good user of the ball and gets lots of contested possessions.

Brent Reilly
Price - $382,300
Dirt cheap player in an ageing Adelaide midfield. He will get lots of game time which will see his scores rise well about what he is at the moment. Also likes a goal and will always put his head over the football.

Byron Schammer
Price - $306,600
Very cheap but pretty inconsistent. Will be very good value for the price however.

Travis Johnstone
Price - $433,800
4th in line to be tagged in the brissy midfield so will be able to rack them up with ease. Look for him to improve on his demons numbers. Will be a very handy player.


Ivan Maric
Price - $284,300
Dirt cheap and will be the crows number one ruck. What more do you want?

Troy Simmonds
Price- $229,600
Coming off significant injury in 2007. However his 2006 was very very good. For his price its impossible to find another ruck with the potential to score between 80 and 100. You have to get on him.


Matthew Bate
Price - $408,600
Will become a promanent player for the dees in 2008. Has shown his ability to not only get possessions, but to also kick goals and take marks inside 50. This is a massive bonus for supercoaches. His price is low so get on him quick.

Barry Hall
Price - $424,400
Simply have to have this bloke in your team. He had a downer last year but in 2008 he has his body up and running again. He will again be the focal point for the swans so expect him to kick goals and get lots of touches. Ripper.

Stuart Dew
Price - $279,000
Alistar Clarkson used his power to get this bloke to the club so obviously they want him to play straight away. Has dropped lots of weight and has been training well. Started his first game last week and didn’t look to rusty. For the price he is worth the risk.

Nathan Thompson
Price - $248,200
The Roos number 1 forward. He will get lots of marks inside 50 and contested possesions. Has started to hit his straps in preparation for round 1. You will need to get on him early before his prices rises significantly.

Lachlan Hansen
Price - $101,900
Looks to be used on the wing this season. Gets lots of touches and uses the ball well. For a cheap option up forward or down back its hard to go past him.
