AFL Supercoach Round 2 Wrap

Here’s all you need to know about who performed and who flopped in round two.

Round two saw some key forwards get in on the Herald Sun supercoach action, with Josh Kennedy topping the scorers this week with 178 points thanks to his 10 goal haul against the Blues. Kangaroos forward Jarrad Waite is only in 0.6% of Supercoach teams but his 177 might tempt a few more coaches this week. However, don’t bet on him backing it up as inconsistency was his middle name at Carlton.

Nat Fyfe was huge against the Cats scoring 162 supercoach points and was in 44% of teams. Some big bargain buys were a letdown however, with Mitch Clark scoring 32 points, despite being in a whopping 71% of teams. Sydney young gun Isaac Heeney failed to back up his outstanding performance last week with only 65 points this week. Richmond young gun McIntosh scored 68 points after his 120 on debut last week. Despite Heeny and McIntosh not having a big week, they’ll be sure to rise in price quite significantly. Prices start to change after this round, so this is the last chance to get on board the youngsters while they’re cheap.

Other youngsters to consider are Saints forward Josh Bruce, who scored 145 points this week. Tory Dickson from the Bulldogs notched up 119, while Oxley from the Magpies finished with 116.

Adelaide veteran Nathan Van Berlo is also a good bargain buy. After a long injury layoff, his price is only $215,600 and he finished with 103 points this week to follow up from his 82 in round one.

Gary Ablett scored 87 points, which everything considered is not bad, but supercoaches will have to weigh up whether it’s time to trade the little master out or keep him until he fully recovers from his shoulder injury. Trading him out is probably the better option if you’ve still got him as his price tag is too great to be churning out scores under 100.
