2013 Supercoach Player Profile: Grant Birchall

(http://www.themercury.com.au/images/uploadedfiles/editorial/pictures/2012/06/21/birchall1.jpg)

Position: B

Price: $503,000

2011 Games: 21

2011 Average: 94.0

2012 Games: 20

2012 Average: 94.7

Standard Deviation: 20.05

2013 Value Rating: B

2013 Breakout Potential Rating: B


2012: Summary
A knee injury early on kept Birchall out for his only 2 misses of the year.  2012 was virtually a carbon copy of his 2011 season, 3 120+ scores and a handful of sub 80 scores. 

2013: What to expect
Prediction:
Has Birch hit a scoring wall?  He didn't improve on 2011.  Yet that doesn't mean don't pick him: you wouldn't be disappointed if you picked him last year and there's only one way his PPG can go, up. No doubt I expect to see him in a lot of draft teams, he seems ever-reliable creating the play for Hawthorn and has truly become a bona-fide playmaker for the Hawks off half-back.  There is a concern that Suckling and Guerra etc could eat up his R50 numbers.  Yet whilst the Hawks are winning they'll eat a heap of the 3300 pie and Birch looks like he loves pie. 

PPG: 97

Have had him the last 2 years and love the fact he's Set and Forget. You always know he's going to score well. Will definately grace my field again next year.
