The focus of your SuperCoach team this week should be to write the wrongs of any missed rookie selections.

Back in premiums that underperformed, like Nathan Fyfe (MID, $597,900), Dayne Zorko (MID, $608,900) and Michael Hibberd (DEF, $545,200). Remember, it is just one game and you would be kicking yourself if you trade them out and they dominate.

However, if you did not like the role of one of your premiums, for example, Tom Rockliff (MID, $529,400), who was primarily used up forward, do not hesitate to trade them out. Trust your eyes.

It is important to select the gun rookies while they are still cheap and have low break evens, as these players will generate the necessary cash flow to improve your side.

Of the defenders, Adelaide’s Tom Doedee (DEF, $123,900) and Collingwood’s Sam Murray (DEF, $123,900) look like the best picks, scoring 86 and 72 respectively. You could play either on your field but beware that Dodee is a key defender and may post the occasional dud score.

Jeremy Finalyson (DEF/MID, $123,900) also performed really strongly in his debut for GWS, scoring 87 points.

In the midfield, Geelong’s Tim Kelly ($117,300) looked like the pick of all the rookies, fitting seamlessly into the Cats’ on ball brigade with a debut score of 118.

Gold Coast’s Nick Hollman (MID, $102,400) laid a game-high 13 tackles on his way to 96 points. Both Kelly and Hollman are mature age players and should be priorities to get in your team.

Geelong’s Lachlan Fogarty (MID, $117,300) was also solid with his 82 points and looked like he belonged at AFL level. Consider that some of the Cats’ midfielders may find their roles decrease with Patrick Dangerfield (MID, $749,800) primed to return.

In the ruck, coaches who paid up for Western Bulldogs ruck/forward Tim English (RUC/FWD, $134,700) were rewarded with an 83-point outing. English was the Bulldogs’ most active forward against the Giants and looks set to have a key role moving forward.

Up forward, we are scraping the barrel. There was not much to like apart from Melbourne’s Bayley Fritsch (FWD, $117,300) and Carlton’s Jarrod Garlett (MID/FWD, $117,300), scoring 60 and 61 respectively. These blokes both showed a bit and Fritsch particularly should be solid enough moving forward.

Collingwood’s Jaidyn Stephenson ($MID/FWD, $180,300) looked lively for his 62 points, but may not be worth the extra dollars, especially with a spread of important forwards set to return for the Pies in the next few weeks.

West Coast’s Jake Waterman (FWD, $123,900) put in a respectful 51 points and looks to have a key role to play so long as Josh Kennedy (FWD, $514,200) is out.

GWS youngster Zac Giles-Langdon (MID, $117,300) looked okay, but you have to question his job security given the strength of the Giants team and with midfielders Tom Scully (MID, $484,600) and Jacob Hopper (MID, $339,200) set to return.

Some coaches were left in a daze after Bomber Zach Merrett (MID, $600,600) went down in the first quarter with concussion. Hold onto Merrett as he is a star and if he misses time it will only be one week.

Power ruckman Paddy Ryder (RUC, $566,500) is set to miss an lengthy period after injuring his achilles injury and owners must offload him.

Coaches who do not own Stefan Martin (RUC, $540,000), Jarrod Wiits (RUC, $518,300) or Max Gawn (RUC, $503,700) should go to one of these three, with Gawn being the obvious choice.

Alternatively, Nic Naitanu (RUC, $465,900) was outstanding in his return for 113 points and  going down to him would fund you some extra dollars. This is a high risk, high reward option, as his durability is of concern.

If you do not have much else to correct, grabbing the before mentioned rookies should be a priority to ensure the long-term improvement of your best 22.
