I noticed that some teams sizzled, and other teams burned. I'm unhappy to say my side wasn't just burnt at the end, but tortured, cremated and thrown into the ocean.
Nevertheless, with two games down, we now know who is the real deal and who were the pre-season phonies.
Which players let the coaches down this week? Round 2's coaching disappointments are as follows:
=4. Matthew Pavlich - 66
=4. Tom Rockliff - 61
3. Jed Adcock - 60
2. Will Minson - 53
1. Jamie Cripps - 28
Those who gambled on Will Minson haven't been fully repaid - yet. 84 and 53 isn't good enough for someone priced at $450k. Pavlich and Rockliff were stuck in the forward-line for a majority of their matches, and just couldn't get into the action. After pumping up Jed Adock's 140 last week, he limped to only 60 this week. But an average of 100? I think you'd take that.
And Jamie Cripps? I've got him, but why? I keep asking myself this question. I heard a rumour that with Jason Gram out he might get a go off half-back. Not even remotely true. Don't worry though, he won't live to see his third week in my side.
Now for the players who every SuperCoach loves. They mightn't be the highest scorer, but they provide excellent value for money or just play a ripping match - like Mick Barlow's 70 last week after coming on as a sub. After performances that makes us want to give them a huge, sloppy kiss, we have as our coaching pleasers:
5. Jon Giles - 100 SC points (53% of teams)
4. Brett Deledio - 145 (43.3%)
3. Terry Milera - 86 (2.3%)
2. Brendan Whitecross - 133 (0.7%)
1. Scott Selwood - 155 (1.3%)
Everyone has Jonny Giles, so if you were swift enough to replace Mumford with Giles, or brave enough to go for the rookie ruck strategy, then Giles has done you proud! What more should we expect from 'Lids'? Milera is shaping as the most traded in player this week, with two scores in the eighties. It could be Whitecross' break-out year, and costing less than $400k, scoring two terrific scores against quality sides and being available as a forward, Whitecross is suddenly very, very tempting. The same can be said for Scott Selwood - obviously he comes from awesome pedigree and he's no longer a tagger...
Star of the Week - To win our prestigious Golden Whiteboard, the player has to be within the top few on the field, and make plenty of coaches happy across the country.
Therefore, it will come as no surprise to hear that Brendon Goddard takes it home this week, with a super 147 points.
To make him an absolute shoo-in this week, many coaches made him captain (coming up against the Gold Coast), and he delivered. His stats read: 33 disposals, 9 marks, 5 tackles and 1 goal.
Who was your Star of the Week? Did your captain deliver, like Goddard? Maybe we missed someone under the disappointments? Tell us below!
