    Currently 69th in RDT heading into the MBR
    1410 with Ward, Ellis and Riewoldt to play
    Should reach 1600 (39 is currently the score to be dropped)

    Considering this will be my worst round, I’m happy

    Looking around my leagues (All top 30) I’m around par so I should be top 100 still, exciting times.

    Josh Kennedy is dominating with 7 goals, but can anyone really say honestly that they have him in their team?

    Being a West Coast supporter, I strongly believe that the Official AFL Website has made a huge mistake. It’s saying West Coast kicked 30.8, 30 goals and 8 points. I believe it’s meant to be 8.30, 8 goals and 30 points.

    Also a MASSIVE thank you to Ellis (29) and Lamb (43) for your massive scores that just throws salt in my wound. I know Ellis didn’t have much game time at all, but I’m talking more about Lamb. He came on in the first quarter so 43 is pretty damn shit and just unacceptable.

    I’ve got 1657 from 17 with Simpson, Billings & Dunstan to go – thankfully none of these 3 has the vest. Hoping to drop Merrett’s 37 (he’s out as soon as lockout is over) & Gunstan’s 47. If tonight’s 3 each score their average I’ll get well over 1800.

    OMFG. Was not expecting a combined score of 233 from Simpson (145) and Longer (88).

    When I went to check the fantasy scores from the game I instantly scrolled down to the bottom to look for Longers score. Then when I couldn’t see him and was scrolling up I thought I must of been blind. Then when I seen his score at the top end of the fantasy scores I still thought I must of been blind.
