Nine games of the AAMI Community Series are in the can and while we have quite a few answers … there are still plenty of questions as we approach the last week before lockout. We run through who stood out (and who didn’t) from the dress rehearsal before the 2022 season commences! Let’s do this!
2:35 – Carlton v Melbourne
5:00 – Eight tackles for Patrick Cripps gives him a big tick.
8:50 – Max Gawn showed us why set-and-forget is the way to go.
10:00 – Western Bulldogs v Brisbane Lions
13:00 – Could you consider Tim English with his RUC/FWD dual-position status?
14:20 – Calvin has finally bitten the bullet and slotted Lachie Neale in his team.
17:30 – Hawthorn v Richmond
20:20 – Roy says James Sicily has done enough.
24:00 – Daniel Rioli and Hugo Ralphsmith are worth considering with their half-back roles.
26:40 – Adelaide v Port Adelaide
29:00 – 31 disposals was a positive sign for Matt Crouch.
31:30 – Lock in Zak Butters.
34:00 – Essendon v St Kilda
36:10 – Warnie thinks a couple of Bombers rookies could be a chance to play.
38:15 – If Patrick Ryder remains out, Rowan Marshall is a real option.
40:45 – GWS Giants v Collingwood
43:50 – Tim Taranto played forward, but scored well.
47:00 – Lock in Nick Daicos for the whole season.
51:50 – Sydney v North Melbourne
52:30 – Calvin has crossed Isaac Heeney off the list.
55:00 – Justin McInerney has a delicious role.
59:10 – The top scoring player under $300k was Tristain Xerri.
1:02: 00 – Roy says there’s not enough “Hollywood time” for Tarryn Thomas.
1:04:05 – Fremantle v West Coast Eagles
1:06:00 – The role for Will Brodie looked great, but Fyfe needs to return.
1:08:40 – Looks like Tim Kelly has a lot of work to do for the Eagles and his Fantasy numbers should increase off the back of it.
1:10:20 – Eagles rookies, including new SSPs, could save us.
1:12:00 – Gold Coast v Geelong
1:14:25 – Where do you fit Matt Rowell in? M4 or M5?
