SuperCoach is edging towards the business end of the season
so it’s time to do everything you can to get your team in order asap.
Personally I like the idea of checking the player stats
section and eyeing off any guys you want in your team moving forward.
That is essentially any of the guns you don’t have and you
think you need. This will give you an idea of how close you are to your ideal
From there it is a matter of some downgrades for cash
generation if you need it, or for teams like myself it’s time to downgrade to
nuffs or upgrade guys like Luai, mid-range forwards and backs and get myself
into a position to come home on fire!
Unfortunately, as has been the case all year injuries make
it difficult to do this. Just know that lots of us are in the same boat so you
can only do what’s best for your side on each given week.
I’ve taken a look below at a few key issues/thoughts heading into this weekend.
He has been named to start but does he play and therefore is he a hold or sell?
This will entirely depend on the rest of your squad. If you’re
like me and you don’t have anyone overly good to flip Matterson to on Sunday arvo
if he is ruled out then I think selling Matto is a good option.
It’ll save the stress and potential disappointment of a late
scratching and allow you to bring in another gun.
This also leaves the option of buying Matto back in a couple
of weeks at a cheaper price and once you can be sure his concussion isn’t
If you can cover him though then it could be a nice move to hold. If he plays you are cheering and you won’t have to worry too much about the price drops because (barring another knock) he will score well to compensate. It’s a big decision, but personally I am selling.
I’ve discussed Sivo all year and this is the week I wanted
him in. So, barring anything drastic he will be joining the Spy’s squad down at
captain’s run on Saturday.
There is some risk that he can go low, but I also like the
chances of a big 100+ game or two over the next month.
There’s a bit of risk for potential reward here before a possible sell pre Melbourne in four weeks.
The same could be said about Sione Katoa at the Sharks who
could have some big weeks again. Just don’t expect it against Parra and Penrith
in two and four weeks respectively who will be more difficult.
Hopefully his base can get him out of any major trouble in
these games and if he can score you are cheering because he could do anything
against Brisbane and the Titans if the Sharks can keep their momentum going. It’s
Sivo for me though in a split decision.
That’s all I have time for this week troops. It’s a busy day ahead, good luck for Thursday night footy and the games to follow!
