Round 8 was not a moving round but it did give Kyle of Team Tyrannosaurus Tex an opportunity to enter the Top 6 of the competition. Kyle currently sits in 2nd spot overall in Super Coach and smashed out a score of 2443, and is only 57 points from the number 1 mantle. $ Ricky sits #12 overall but failed to gain any Koel points yet again.

In the AFL Dream Team format Daniel of Prestia Worldwide snagged the 10 Koel points with a handy score of 2368, whilst our group leaders overall are Narcissist FC/Damon #2 overall and Cashcows/Mick #6, both continuing to hold their spots as we slowly approach the moving bye rounds.

In AFL Fantasy it was Jomel Warrican/Charles who bagged the 10 Koel points with a 2392. The group leaders in this format are The Almighty Swans/Daniel and Didsbury FC/Matthew who sit overall in 21st and 36th spots respectively.

So it’s James of JayRox FC continuing to lead the 2017 Coaches Panel Nobel Koel Coach of the Year Award, 3 ahead of Apache Cats with Sun’s Guns 5 points off the lead in 3rd place. Keep giving your best as this competition can turn around very quickly for the astute coach out there that nails their trading strategies and comes home with a wet sail, all the very best for Round 9 coaches.
