Lefty’s In-Vestments – Round 5 part 2

LeftysInvestmentsWelcome to Lefty’s In-Vestments, where I will have a crack at picking the dreaded green vests for each weeks games. Last week I was pretty happy with 9 of my first or second vest picks being correct – 50% is a pretty fair average for this sort of thing I reckon?

Good luck all – wish me luck on my wedding tomorrow




  • Good luck on your wedding tomorrow! Congratulations. Thanks for the article!

  • Cheers Jax – had to rush a bit to get it out so look for a bigger article next week.
    Hope i get a few of the greenies right.
    Decided to start mayes over dwyer – he bloody better not kermit up!

    • I started both on field this week with rowe and macaffer on bench.
      Getting the rookies right seems to be 15% research and 85% luck :p

  • Thanks Lefty and all the best for the big day tomorrow. Certainly a dilemma here per your article as I currently have O’Meara and Stevens on the field in my mids with Neade on the bench via DPP. Crouch & Viney certainly threw a spanner in the works!

  • So ya don’t think Vlastuin will cop the vest?

  • Dan – He just doesn’t seem the right option to have an impact late for mine. Be worried about the red vest though….

    • I have Pittard, Terlich and Vlastuin and must play 2 of them this week as Stevenson is out. I’m thinking of going Terlich and Vlastuin due to Pittard’s hit and miss scores, Terlich playing Brisbane and Vlastuin possibly spending time in the midfield. But I will wait to hear the final teams tonight just in case Vlastuin does get the vest.

  • expect gray to get the green vest.

  • It is not too late to run away

  • You found time to write this when your getting married tomorrow! An extra thank you this week!

    Anyone have any thoughts on who to leave on the bench out of O’Meara, Jones, and Whitfield? I was thinking Whitfield, but am a little scared of vests for the other two. It’s always a bit scary when heaps of guys come in and go straight into the 18 (3/3 at GC and 2/3 at Melbourne) leaving my rooks on the I/C.
