KFC SuperCoach will go ahead this weekend with modified rules to factor in changes to the AFL fixture for Round 11.
The AFL announced late on Wednesday that the Hawthorn v Gold Coast match scheduled for Saturday night won’t go ahead due to Victoria’s new COVID-19 crisis.
The Hawks and Suns will now have a bye this weekend.
As a result KFC SuperCoach will revert to best 18 scoring for Round 11.
During a hectic 2020 season the same rule was adopted any time there is fewer than nine games played in a round.
Under Best 18 rules only a team’s highest 18 scores count towards your tally for the round. These scores must come from active players — bench scores don’t count unless they are emergencies covering for a zero on the field.
There are no extra trades at this stage.
Hawthorn and Gold Coast were scheduled to have a bye in Round 12 but the AFL is yet to confirm when the teams will make up for this week’s missed contest.
The decision means popular KFC SuperCoach players including Jarman Impey, Tom Mitchell and Jacob Koschitzke won’t play.
Their prices won’t change this weekend and all non-playing players can be used for loopholes and traded and substituted until the final lockout of the round at 4.40pm AEST on Sunday when the ball is bounced for Port Adelaide v Fremantle.
KFC SuperCoach will remain agile with possible further fixture changes and we will keep everyone informed with any new developments.
