Following the conclusion of the AFL Draft 2021 at the end of November, some teams are placing a lot of hope in their new recruits and hoping to change their fortunes after disappointing seasons in 2021.

As the bottom team on the ladder in 2021, North Melbourne Kangaroos had the first pick in the 2021 draft and they selected Jason Horne-Francis with their number one pick. Horne-Francis is an all-Australian and his state’s MVP at under-16s level just two years ago.

North Melbourne will have high hopes for Horne-Francis and with two years of senior football under his belt, it is hoped he can change the fortunes of the struggling Kangaroos who finished rock-bottom in 2021, picking up just four wins across the 22 game season.

The 2021 draft was perhaps the hardest for a number of years due to the lack of playing time for a lot of the prospects over the past 18 months. This meant that this year’s recruits were the most under-viewed for decades, however, that doesn’t diminish from their talent and there were some huge prospects up for selection in the draft.

Let’s take a look at five of the biggest prospects for 2022:

Jason Horne-Francis - North Melbourne Kangaroos
We’ve already talked about the impact the Kangaroos will be hoping Horne-Francis can make in 2022 and they will be looking at his ball-winning ability in the middle of the park to help them to improve on their woeful defensive record from 2021.

Horne-Francis averaged 16.5 disposals (8.8 contested), 4.2 tackles and 3.2 clearances in 20 games at senior level this year as well as representing both Australia at Under-18s level and South Australia at Under-19s level.

The Kangaroos have a big job on their hands and they are already the favourites with Betway to...
SSP's are added, stats are rolled, DT is added and the season is good to go!

Good luck all!
Take a look over the break where we preview the three grand finals and other notable games.

Also, we have two TS NBA Supercoach leagues. One currently has 11 in it and the other has 7. It would be great to fill at least one of them, so join this league if you are keen, and the 7 in the smaller one should move over as well. Our TS NBA SC league finished in the top 20 leagues once a few years ago.

Good luck to all!
The first bounce of the new season is tomorrow, and its time to make sure all of your leagues are full.

We have started a TS Group which can be joined HERE: https://supercoach.heraldsun.com.au/afl/classic/?action=join-group&code=187988

Other TS league codes are listed over the break.
Good evening peeps. The site is now officially rolled over for the 2022 season.

As always, let me know if anything is a little skewiff! Other than that, good luck y'all!
SuperCoach is open, and there’s some new rules/features.

KFC SUPERCOACH GAME CHANGES FOR 2022

TRADE BOOST

– Every coach now has 35 trades over 23 rounds with a maximum of two per round and three during the byes (Rounds 12-14), unless you use a trade boost.

– New trade boost! Up to five trade boosts can be used in any round to gain an extra trade for that round, up to a maximum of three per round or four during the byes. These bonus trades come out of your total of 35, and you can choose to use some, all or none of your five available trade boosts.

PLAYER POSITION UPDATES

At regular intervals during the season Champion Data will reassess player positions and assign dual-position status to players if their on-field role changes. For example, in 2021 Jack Ziebell was listed as a forward in KFC SuperCoach but spent the entire season at full-back – under the new rule he could become a FWD-DEF player mid-season.
We have reached the point in the season where all teams have played each other once each. For the remaining five weeks, we now play the teams in our own conference for a second time, before we move on to the playoffs. The conferences are seeded at the beginning of the season based on the draft order.

For those that don't know, we have been posting an update each week in the forum, outlining the top scoring teams of the week, as well as the coveted 'highest scoring loser' of the week!

Check it out here: http://tooserious.net/forum/threads/21-22-nba-chatter.91014/

So far, across 11 rounds, we have had eight different coaches be the highest scoring loser in any given week. Three of those have achieved the feat on two occasions! That's @Lethal , @smokinjoemisiti & @The Royals - tough luck guys!

@Sparks is the only one of us to go through the first 11 matchups undefeated. Well done!

@Rev has scored the most points of all of us, and incredibly he has used just four acquisitions so far!! Those moves were: Oct 20, added Aaron Gordon; Oct 26, added Raul Neto; Oct 27, dropped Neto, added Jalen Brunson; Oct 27, dropped Brunson, added Dennis Schroder... and that's it!

@crossy has made the most moves with 52 acquisitions! Interestingly, the top-five are all from the Premier League; and five of the six with the least moves are all from Div2.

All three leagues are really close at the moment, and the makeup of the playoffs, promotions and relegations will be decided in the coming weeks. Good luck to everyone!

Here is a table to show the story thus far for all coaches across the three leagues.
All three leagues drafted last night and we're ready for the new season starting in a couple of days.

We have a table in this thread showing where all players were drafted in each league, ranked by their average draft position.

Here are links to the three leagues on ESPN:
Premier
Division 1
Division 2

I like the look of lots of teams, and its really difficult to separate them, but special shoutouts to the following three teams from each league:
@Mick Webb , @jmulldihno & @Rad_E_Cool in Premier
@karlos , @Steve & @Esther from Div1
@KAT4MVP , @The Royals & @Daniel Sprigg in Div2

Cant wait to watch some games now!
