Hey guys, as some of you may know, I now do a bit of writing for the site SuperCoachHQ. Right now I am doing some of the season reviews, so I thought I might as well share them on here. If you want to see the rest of the reviews, head over to

To start with, here is Sydney.

Best First Year Player
Tom MITCHELL - 12 matches, 1034 points at 86.17. Increased $231,000
Father-son pick from a few years back that took until now to debut, and he showed why he was such a highly rated youngster around the Swans. Mitchell was an absolute god-send, debuting in round 10, and turned out to be a very good mid-season downgrade option. He also provided very good on ground cover in his first 8 games, averaging a tick under 100. He looks to be another very good Swans midfielder coming through.

Most Improved Player
Luke PARKER  22 matches, 1912 points at 86.91. Decreased $8,300
Wow, the Swans just know how to develop midfielders, don't they? We saw the emergence of another young gun this year in Luke Parker. Managed to lift his average by over 16 PPG to 86, and played every game for the year. While there are still much better Sydney midfielders out there at the moment for your SuperCoach team, this guy could be sneaking up into contention as a nice POD in the coming years. Averaged 94 from his first 13 games, before finishing the season a bit slower, so he is definitely one to monitor in the future.

Best Buy
Kieren JACK  22 matches, 2404 points at 109.27. Decreased $118,700
It was another big year for this Sydney star, which culminated in All-Australian honours this week. While he wasn't the most consistent player, dropping below 100 points 8 times, he had a big ceiling, scoring over 130 points on 5 occasions. Being picked up by only 10% of teams, he was the 9th best scorer for the competition, so hopefully you picked him up as a nice POD. Expect more of the same from him in the future.

Worst Buy
Adam Goodes  12 matches, 1011 points at 84.25. Decreased $22,700
Sad to put such a legend of the game in this category, but it just hasn't been a Goodes year (HA!). But on a serious note, he had a bad year affected by injury, and hopefully we will see him back nice and cheap next year. He did show what he is capable of, scoring a big 169 against Collingwood in round 9, but apart from that he really struggled, with only 1 other game over 100. Hopefully he wasnt in your team this year.

2014 Prospects
Alex Johnson
Johnson was a key part of the 2012 premiership, and unfortunately ruptured his ACL before the season started. He developed into a very good key defender, and averaged high 60s before his injury. I expect him to average mid 70s next year, and priced quite cheap, could be a good option at the start of the year to make a few quick, guaranteed dollars.

Nick Malceski
Malceski has just come off a very good year, being the 4th highest scoring defender, so by his history, next year he should only play a handful of games and be injured for most of the season. I'm backing him to buck this trend next year and make it a few good seasons in a row to finish his career. His run off half back was both key for the Swans and very SuperCoach friendly, so if there is no injury news pre-season, make sure you get on him.

Gary Rohan
Rohan was priced at $235,600 this year and played 3 games in the Home and Away season, so I would expect his price to probably go down to somewhere around the $160k mark. If it does, he makes a good F6 player. After finally finishing a lengthy recovery from that broken foot back in 2012, he seems to have lost none of his line-breaking pace and poise. He is also a good finisher in the forward line, so an all round quality player.

Most Prolific

1.  Kieran Jack (MID)  2404 @ 109.27
2.  Jarrad McVeigh (MID)  2335 @ 106.14
3.  Josh P. Kennedy (MID)  2319 @ 105.41
4.  Ryan O'Keefe (MID)  2225 @ 101.14
5.  Daniel Hannebery (MID)  2002 @ 95.33
6.  Nick Malceski (DEF)  1997 @ 90.77
8.  Mike Pyke (RUC)  1904 @ 86.55
11. Jude Bolton (FWD)  1476 @ 70.29

By the way this copy and paste issue on here is a killer. Needs to be fixed.

Let me know what you think of the reviews everyone!

Loving these BB. Reckon Goodes could be a good buy next year with Sydney landing Buddy? Would get a 3rd/4th defender

Yeah, quality stuff BB!

Who would've thought McVeigh was going to be the second highest scorer for us at the start of the season :o

Cheers guys! Goodes will be an interesting one. Depends what he is priced at. If he doesn't get a discount then I won't start with him, I just don't know what role he is going to get with two dominant key forwards now present. Maybe with Mummy going he goes back into the ruck and can ruck with Pyke? I think he will probably play a high half forward role rotating through the middle. Probably a good upgrade target.

What about Buddy? 90avg This year when he looked disinterested a lot of the time.

Avg 100+ at the SCG compared to 90 vs the Swans, so he likes the ground!

Parker should go to the next level as well next year IMO.

Yeah Buddy is an interesting one! Still hope Tippett wins the Coleman next year even though Buddy is there.

Will see how Buddy goes pre-season, you would be crazy not to consider him at his price and in his new team.
