Buy, Sell, Hold – Round 16

We are back baby! After a week to catch up with our families and friends, it’s time to get our priorities in order and say hello to SuperCoach again. The second bye week is looming which is a scary sight so today I’ll go through some targets for Round 17 and players to flick before then.


Jahrome Hughes – BUY (101 points and $3.9k gain)

Brian To’o – BUY (101 points and $64.6k gain)


Alex Johnston – BUY (31 points and $19.5k gain)


***Let me start by saying there may be a couple of duplicates from previous rounds and players who I have mentioned in past BSH articles that are Round 17 targets. ***

Grant Anderson – CTW – $175,400 – BE -54
Rating: 9/10
Normally Melbourne play the odd cheapie around the Origin period but they don’t often last in the squad to make an impact or any $$ in SuperCoach. Word on the street is that Anderson has impressed and is currently ahead of Ieremia in the pecking order and should make a round 17 appearance at this stage. With people looking to start nuffing out players, Anderson could be absolutely perfect as in theory he should provide round 17 cover, is bottom dollar and shouldn’t make his way back into the side for the SuperCoach finals run when Coates comes back.

Dylan Brown – 5/8 – $629,500 – BE 94
Rating: 8/10
A high BE Dylan Brown could be the way to go for Munster owners after Munster has been ruled out of the round 16 clash and will miss 17 and possibly 18 also. I myself am a Munster and Cody Walker owner and I will be moving Munster on for Brown and then hopefully using Walker to get Munster back later. Brown is having a career year and averaged a cool 72.6 for the season including 79.3 for his last 3 matches. Not a desperate trade in but should be a season long hold at this stage and has one of the highest floors for a half so rarely has a bad scoring game.

Jahrome Hughes – HFB – $637,000 – BE 51
Rating: 8/10
Someone I mentioned last week was Hughes, one I almost pulled the trigger on but chicken out last second regrettably. A big 101 score and quietly averages only 0.2 less for the year than Dylan Brown. Mr Reliable who can deliver big scores and has only scored under 50 three times (none since Round 6). Is owned by 11% so almost considered a POD option but still a strong buy regardless.


Euan Aitken – CTW/2RF – $511,600 – BE 84
RATING: 7/10
Now I understand that him moving to the centres very much hurts his base, but the idea of selling a warrior in their backline in the big return game that they’ve been waiting 2 years for. If that’s not enough to convince you to hold him for just this game then flick next round, he’s going up against the absolutely basket case of a club the West Tigers. Hold for just the one round and hope they thump Wests and he bags a pie or two.

Izack Tago – 2RF/CTW – $512,600 – BE 74
RATING: 8/10
I’ve been saying since the start of the season that Tago is a season long hold. I’ve held strong with that but now I can see the understanding behind selling towards the back end of the season if it means you get a round 17 gun. However selling this round doesn’t make sense as he’s obviously playing and the rumours are that Manu will move the 6 jersey and Tago will be running at “defensively-renowned” centre Paul Momirovski. Tago could go nuts this game!


Reuben Cotter – HOK/2RF – $598,500 – BE 79
Rating: 9/10
A true QLDer has been struck yet again by a sniper pre-game and is out until at least round 19/20 with a hamstring injury. Given Cotter’s injury history, I can’t see the Cowboys throwing him in the deep end when he returns as he will be vital to a strong finals run.

At this stage there are not many big sells that I can confidently put up. Next week there will be a number more as the prospects for round 17 and the season end narrow.

Good article with a bit of cheek in there mate haha

TU – Dylbags
TD – Hughes


i went TU just because like most i aim to finish with hynes and cleary in 7 with papy and teddy at fullback so leaves no room for hughes


I think Munster is a sell. Most of us are carrying Mam as back up 7. can slide to 6 and either bring in a 7 or move Hynes to 7 and basically with the duals this year you can purchase anyone. Munster back in round 20 for warriors is juice
