AFL Teams 2017: Round 5

Aidyn Johnson (Fwd $150,000)

5:00 pm Friday 20/04/2017

Sunday extended benches are in. Aaron Black (Fwd $150,000) is a confirmed in for the cats. As is George Horlin-Smith (Mid $262,000)
Also some news on those Monday and Tuesday games, where pre teamsheet announcements have never been so important.
Michael Hibberd (Def $428,000) and Jesse Hogan (Fwd $508,000) are confirmed to play for dees.
We don’t know teamsheets for Dons or Pies, but we do have the teamsheets for their VFL lineups which could be useful for determining who can be selected… Collingwood seconds list is here, and Dons seconds list is here.
Still some concern about Dustin Martin (Mid $652,000) being a late withdraw chance. I’d make sure you have bench cover.
Some reports that Jay Kennedy-Harris (Fwd $150,000) could be named for the dees, which would put Mitch Hannan (Fwd $242,000) at risk for being omitted.

Friday Updates

6:25 pm Thursday 20/04/2017

Teams are in for MOST but not all games this weekend. Well to a complete shock to me (And likely you all as well) it seems both Monday and Tuesday game teamsheets will not be named until Saturday…which is after lockout. Ouch is all I have to say about that.
On top of this there is a bit of carnage. Rookies Robbie Fox (Knee), Nic Newman (Omitted), Oliver Florent (Omitted), Braydon Preuss (Rested), Harley Balic (Hip), Tim Taranto (Managed)James Parsons (Suspension) are all out as well as mid premo Sam Mitchell is out with his ankle injury.
Ed Vickers-Willis (Def $150,000) and Lewis Melican (Def $150,000) are making their debuts, and we finally get to see Isaac Heeney (Fwd $442,000) who is back after having Glandular Fever.

5:00 pm Thursday 20/04/2017

Full teams from ~6:15pm tonight. Be aware there is a Monday and Tuesday game this week. This means unfortunately there are 2 games where we won’t know extended bench selections before lockout. (Apparently full teamsheets!)

Some early News, Matthew Kreuzer (Ruck $502,000) has been ruled out with Soreness. We will see another Blues rookie debut with Cameron Polson (Fwd $150,000). This is the Blues sixth for the season.
Daniel Wells (Mid $531,000) is set to debut for the pies. It will be very interesting to see what sort of role they will play with him.
And for those who thought Allen Christensen (Fwd $405,000) could have been a potential POD, unfortunately he is out for the season. Ben McNiece (Def $150,000) has been upgraded from the rookie list an is a chance of debut for the dons.

True vintage piggery from Tom Rockliff (Mid $709,000) with 157. All preseason doubts surely well and truly dismissed. Get him in.

Shags’ Watchlist

gaz
Is the little master Gary Ablett (Mid $604,000) back? After a woeful second round and a lot of media attention, he has smashed out 138 and 118. He has spend a fair bit of time up forward (We can only dream). ALthough Hes definitely a player I’d look to get if his form still good after his Bye round 8.

Shags’ Watchlist

heeney
Isaac Heeney (Fwd $442,000) was a very popular pick preseason, but then we had the news he was very unlucky and suffering Glandular Fever. This kids a gun. Glandular fever is pretty nasty so its possible he may have a slow return, but watch his form closely.

Shags’ Watchlist

EV
Ed Vickers-Willis (Def $150,000) was another popular selection preseason who just didnt get named week 1. Well now he finally gets his chance. 50 72 and 38 over JLT shows he can score ok. Hwever with North rookies in an out like yo yos this year, Im somewhat wary.
