After several weeks of rises, the Cooma Stallions took a tumble with what was a mixed round of SuperCoach scoring.
Plenty of big guns went large early in the round, before several faltered later on in the piece.
I scored a miserly 413 points to drop 600 places to 2,246th overall.
I’d like to acknowledge early that I played Aaron Hardie (1) over AJ Tye (127) last round, I also brought in Daniel Sams and captained him only to be concussed and not bowl his overs, condolences are welcome…
It was a nasty drop, but the nature of SuperCoach BBL is that it’s near impossible to go well every week.
The scoring fluctuates so heavily and the difference between a duck and quick half century is immense, so it’s not worth sulking about.
Let’s look ahead to Round 8 and try to reverse this minor slide, with the Sydney Thunder and Brisbane Heat on the double.
There’s wet weather around, so it’s strongly advised to leave trades until as late as possible, in particular Heat players who entirely lose their appeal if tonight’s game on the Gold Coast is rain affected.
You’ll want him in your team later on, so is it worth burning through two trades?
Joe Burns and Usman Khawaja are also in line to join the Stallions. I don’t particularly like Burns, but at $86,500 he frees up vital cash to spend elsewhere and with a breakeven of 5 he should make some decent money, so it looks a safe enough bet.
Again, if the radar if is wet tonight I’ll bypass him.
Khawaja has made several starts without going on with a knock. I think he’s due to go big and at $112k he looks a nice price.
If you’re in a position to do so, Marcus Stoinis looks a great buy this week with a breakeven of 19, a looming double game week, and the chance of him bowling again after appearing to roll the arm over in the nets during the week.
