What the Ruck?
The big question here is… who are your starting two rucks for 2011? Of course there are many different options this year and Calvin’s takes a look at (what he believes) are the 6 most common combinations. But which one are you?
Mr. Big Spender: Sandilands + Ryder = $762,600
This coach has recently been impressed with old Patty Ryder and teamed him up with the giant from Freo. With rumours of Ryder playing a ‘roaming/wingman’ role this year, paying the big bucks here might pay off.
Mr. Boring: Sandilands + Cox = $758,300
This coach has gone for the old school approach of picking the gun of 2010, with the old gun from the past. Great selection either way! Cox is massively underpriced and has been in wicked form and pairing up with the best ruck of 2010 is a good call… but boring!
Mr. Toey: Cox + Ryder = $707,900
This coach probably has some deep dark secrets that they would probably like to leave alone in a dark closet somewhere, but expresses their hidden emotions with the names of their rucks. They have gone for a bargain along with the guy who is pushing to be in the top 2 rucks by the end of 2011. Ryder just may be there in the top 2 by the end of 2011 – look out.
Mr. Morning Glory: Jolly + Cox = $682,900
You wake up in the morning with a jollycox, oh and with a combined total of 200+ on the board and you’re a happy man. Jolly and Cox will be a dynamic duo this year and will be pushing a combined average of 200 easy I reckon!
Mr. Rich ‘n’ Poor : Sandilands + Petrie = $616,200
This is a confused coach. They bought Sandilands in as the guy who got the job done in 2010 and then felt guilty they spent so much money so they added old broken legged Petrie to the line up. Good call and if that makes you feel better, do it… but do you know that Petrie is also a forward? Oh no – now they are really confused. Seriously, not a bad combo through… cause Petrie will certainly rise in value and maybe a keeper, if not… you trade him with the money you’ve made and he turns to the 2nd best guy! It’s not even a gamble, but a calculated strategy. I like it.
Mr. Pissonatree: Cox + Petrie = $561,500
You get it?? Cox… Pee Tree?? Oh well…I’ll explain it to you later Warnie. This coach has gone for two bargain dudes and a call that will certainly pay off. Both will go up in value and it’s a great call. This is a very cheap option and one that is low risk based on their price. Unless Pee Tree breaks another foot or leg, which he won’t.
Which combo have you gone for in 2011?
Sadly at this stage we are experiencing problems with the ‘poll’, so please just leave comments with your combo.
