Dogs v Bombers
Pies v Crows
Eagles v Lions
Toby McLean (FWD, $8,100) Averaging 103 in his last five games with a low score of 88 in that time makes him hard to ignore. Before his move to the midfield, he was averaging just 16 possessions, but since the move he is up to 21 while enjoying laying a few more tackles to go with it.
Tom Bellchambers (RUC, $6,800) provides a value pick on the back of some good form and a friendly matchup. The Bombers are the hardest team to score against in the ruck, while the Dogs are ranked the 5th easiest and when you factor in the Belly is averaging 87 in his last three, he picks himself for that price..
Rory Sloane (MID, $8,800) looks great value coming off an impressive performance against the Cats. The key to that was the Cats got pretty and didn’t tag him but I don’t think the Pies will make the same mistake and send Greenwood straight to him. This year when tagged he averages 70 compared to 130 untagged, so if you think he will run free, it’s a bargain, but I would steer clear.
Jack Crisp (MID, $8,200) With Pendles out, someone was going to get the opportunity to step up in the midfield and Crisp grabbed it with both hands. He has been in good form over the last month following a move to half back, but even that had nothing on his 121 from 33 touches. He deserves another crack at it with the assumption he is back in the guts.
Alex Witherden (MID, $5,700) Once again he is the must have pick of the day. The young defender has been phenomenal since making his debut and a mark of consistency, reinforced by the fact he is the only Lion to score 80+ in every game over the last month.
My shout team!
Shannon Hurn (DEF, $6,700) It’s a rough one here but something is going on with Hurn’s role the last two weeks which might provide us with some value. In 214 games, he has only gone over 115 on just four occasions but in games 215 and 216 he has pumped out 117 and a thumping 137 while taking 24 marks. That price makes it a risk worth taking, especially at home to the Lions.
