From the Freako:

Hi and welcome to the pre-season edition of the Fantasy Freako’s rave for 2018. With the JLT Community Series done and dusted, our attention now turns to the H&A rounds as we frantically put the finishing touches to our starting side. Like every year, there will be a host of names without a match under their belt led by Tom Rockliff and Gary Ablett this year.

Looking ahead to the season opener, the ruck department is always a hot topic of discussion and this will form the nucleus of the feature. I’ll dissect the pre-season numbers and nominate my starting rucks for the year.

Also, as an added bonus, I’ve included some key numbers across several statistical measures to provide further evidence of the form players.

Enjoy the pre-season edition and best of luck for the opening round of the season.
