Calvin is BACK and his captains have been dominating. Who tops the list this week and who is your VC?

BANG! I’m back after a poor round 3. It’s important that we keep an eye on these taggers, an area I cover in the video. Games are spread out starting at 4:20pm Friday and it’s more important than ever ti make sure your VC and Captain is set with a plan up your sleeve.


  • Found my hat
  • Brag about last week
  • Cover my top-10
  • Cover who else I TICK off
  • Look at who missed the cut and why
  • My plan

1. Jack Steele

@ Marvel
SAT 1:45pm
Coming off 130, Jack is back and had 136 on Suns last yearThe Suns are the #2 easiest at the moment for MIDs and in recent weeks, Hewett (115), Taranto (126), Green (114) and Cogs (114) all cashed in.
2. Touk Miller

@ Marvel
SAT 1:45pm
No tag coming this week after scores of 83 and 68.Touk scored 119 on the Saints last year and more importantly he will run free here. Loves Marvel, a place he averaged 130 at last season.
3. Josh Dunkley

@ Marvel
FRI 4:20pm
129, 132 and 112 is some hot form. Great VC option too.Dunkley scored 110 on the Roos last year and doesn't need CBAs to fill his stats. Reliable and plays nice and early as MY... VC option.
4. Ben Keays

@ Adelaide
SAT 4:35pm
BANG! 3x130+ scores in his first four games. Elite and unique.Keays averaged 108 last year and has started the season on fire. He had 129 on the Tigers last year and is the Crows main CBA with 26 last week.
5. Max Gawn

SAT 7:25pm
140 last week and he is finally marking the ball. WIN WIN.Rucks v Flynn have scored 85 (Nank) and 98 (Hickey) this year. He should sit higher on the list but he has only had one good game.
6. Andrew Brayshaw

@ Marvel
SUN 4:40pm
Shook a tough tagger and still managed 110 last week.Averaging 127, Brayshaw is on fire and only meets the Bombers who Keays (134) and Laird (123) dominated last week.
7. Lachie Neale

THURS 7:35pm
Great VC option coming off tagged games of 98 and 86.Pies don't tag and last time they played Neale had 120 and 103 in his last two games against them. Loves playing at home and could be massive.
8. Jack Macrae

@ Marvel
FRI 4:20pm
Coming off 130 and had the most CBAs (19) of the Bulldog MIDs.Sitting at 8 appears low for Macrae. Last year he only scored 94 and 103 on the Roos and at the end of the day... Bevo is too random but a great VC option.
9. Jarryd Lyons

THURS 7:35pm
139 and 142 on the Pies last year. This match-up is juicy as.Lyons is warming up with scores of 100 and 122 in his last two games and should find his feet again with this match-up.
10. Mitch Duncan

SUN 3:20pm
130 last year and Hawks are #1 easiest by a mile. Feast-time coming.Duncan only had 88 last week but did take 10 marks. Hawks have given up 15x100+ scores and 7x120+ to MIDs this year alone. Watch-out!
