They are always the talk of the town. The cheap as chips players that can help you turn a frog into a Fyfe. So which players have caught the attention of Supercoaches out there already? Let's take a look at a few now.
The Eagle is now a veteran and in the twilight of his career. Never really been a supercoach type, but at this price, he is proving very popular, even though traditionally he plays the tagger role.
Talk of the town, this ball magnet has already been locked into many sides preseason. Will have rule of the roost at a rebuilding / restabilising Kangaroo outfit, where they will be hoping to turn him into the clubs next 250 game player. Knows how to find the ball, will get opportunity on the ball, and will be handed games = perfect Supercoach Cash Cow for 2021.
In a similar boat to Phillips. Talented ball magnet who will be thrown in the guts with his training wheels on from day dot. One of those players who accumulates stats, sometimes without you even noticing. Next thing you know he has 20+ disposals.
The future of the Hawks backline, Denver will need to step up ahead of time given the injury to Sicily and the club change of Frawley. A beautifully balanced player with all the skills and reliability you want in a defender. Has a great footy brain on him, which Clarko will mould further in 2021. A good Cash Cow choice at this point in time.
The number one draft pick is often a popular supercoach selection simply due to being number one. Will have many takers, but the preseason will reveal how ready he is to stand alongside Naughton in the Dogs forward like. A watch and wait approach, especially given the premium rookie price tag.
Gold Coast will be hoping he gels with the other star studded youth brigade. Will have many supercoach suitors based on his reputation, and memorable name.
Likely to be thrown to the wolves in his first season at Adelaide. A more developed squad might see a player like Thilthorpe not see much action in his first year and developed in the twos. Not the crows - fans will want to see their man.
Into his thirties and career on the line, if Jetta can work his way back into the side then he is a great bargain. Let's see how his preseason goes, as there are several options in defence at his price.
Harry Taylor out - Guthrie in? It's seems that the younger Guthrie might finally get a good run at it in 2021. Although still needing to put on some conditioning, he has certainly built a more suitable footy frame in the past few seasons. Won't be a big scorer on a week to week basis and may even throw in some stinkers. But if by some chance he becomes loose man in defence for a game, he might plunder you some serious cash for up trading.
Another brother in the system, if he plays anything like Jackson then he will be a permalock for the next decade. No wonder so many coaches are jumping on him early. Opportunity will be the issue in an already hot Collingwood midfield.
Coaches are jumping on Pedlar simply due to the Adelaide rebuild factor. Expecting he will get games because they need to develop these young players. Simply cash cow selection policy.
Slightly mature age, Rowe has had 3 seasons being a livewire in the forward line at SANFL level. Obviously being more developed, his body is likely more ready for AFL level. Expect most squads to pick him in a forward bench slot by seasons start.
And that's the current state of the Cash Cow trends for 2021 as of mid January. Another updated review of cash cow form will be posted in a few weeks, when more reports and information becomes available.
