AFL Teams 2022: Round 8

Teamsheets are in for round 8. Check them out here!

Thursday 28th April – Early news

No early Thursday or late Monday games this week, but we have another weird Friday night double header.

Already some early carnage with poor Eagles side hit by Covid protocols again, including gun rookie Greg Clark and Alex Witherden. Freo are missing a couple as well in Acres, Colyer and Lobb, but are expecting Heath Chapman and Hayden Young back. DOns have had a setback with Stringer now out for about 1 month, and Dangerfeld is expected to be available for the cats. Billings and Zac Zones are looking likely at Saints which is trouble for players such as Windhager. Also a big inclusion coming for Tigers, with Dustin Martin coming back from his time out.

Important times to remember:

Weekend Teamsheets ~6:20pm EST Thurs 05/05/22

Sunday games Extended bench selection ~5:00pm EST Friday 06/05/2022


GAME 1: Friday May 6, Power vs Dogs

INS INS Anthony Scott,Buku Khamis
OUTS Xavier Duursma (Omitted) OUTS Josh Schache (Medi-Sub),Marcus Bontempelli (Managed),Mitch Wallis (Injured)

Unlikely anyone has him but Marcus Bontempelli has been dropped. Could Buku Khamis be the bargain basement def rookie we need? Hes been going great in the seconds, but as a replacement for the Bont you’d think his Job Security is poor.

7:30pm EST Adelaide Oval


Full Back: [3] Ryan Burton, [21] Aliir Aliir, [17] Tom Clurey

GAME 2: Friday May 6, Dockers vs Roos

A bit of covid carnage here for Freo, but luckily not much in terms of DT relevance. PODS Young and Chapman are back if anyone held. We also have a new forward rookie in Jye Amiss, but is too expensive and too much a Key Position player for my liking. The off team had Miller Bergman as a rookie, after a unlucky score of 3 hes out with an injury. Pretty big in for Roos with Jed Anderson, who is super pricey premo and risky, but Ive added to my watchlist.

8:40pm EST Optus Stadium

OUTS Jack Ross (Omitted),Riley Collier-Dawkins (Omitted),Sydney Stack (Omitted) OUTS Callum L. Brown (Omitted),Jack Madgen (Omitted),Reef McInnes (Medi-Sub)

Already announced is the comeback of superstar Dustin Martin. Those who have him, like me, Reef McInnes dropped from palying, to an unused medisub, to a complete omission this week.

INS Logan McDonald,Paddy McCartin INS Rory Thompson,Wil Powell
OUTS Harry Cunningham (Injured),James Bell (Medi-Sub),Sam Reid (Omitted) OUTS Alex Davies (Omitted),Darcy Macpherson (Omitted),Jeremy Sharp (Injured)

Paddy McCartin is back in for any coach who was unable to trade him out, but nothing else DT relevant here.

GAME 5: Saturday May 7, Giants vs Cats

INS INS Cooper Stephens,Francis Evans,Patrick Dangerfield,Quinton Narkle
OUTS Matt de Boer (Medi-Sub) OUTS Joel Selwood (Injured),Luke Dahlhaus (Medi-Sub),Max Holmes (Injured),Oliver Dempsey (Omitted),Shaun Higgins (Injured)

The name that pops out here is cats mid rookie Cooper Stephens who has impressive numbers in the 2nds and was on everyones watchlist preseason. Job Security is clearly shakey, so it likeky depends on injuries to Joel Selwood, and of course, his form this week. Dangerfield is back in, but sadly hes not very DT relevent this year.

4:35pm EST Manuka Oval

OUTS Jake Stringer (Injured),Kaine Baldwin (Omitted),Nik Cox (Injured) OUTS Connor Macdonald (Managed),Conor Nash (Managed),Daniel Howe (Medi-Sub),Liam Shiels (Managed)

Hawks rookieJosh Ward is back in if you still have him, but out is Connor MacDonald if you also still have him. The odd team had Grainger-Barrass, who is also back.

Please check Friday at 5pm for extended bench selections. Luke Jackson looks like he’ll be back in. Zak Jones is in for Saints, but no Billings yet, and Rowan Marshall is back as well for the odd team that may have him. With those ins Windhagers position in the 22 is shakey.

INS Jesse Motlop,Jordan Boyd,Paddy Dow,Zac Williams INS Ben Davis,Jake Soligo,James Rowe,Luke Pedlar,Mitchell Hinge,Will Hamill
OUTS Liam Stocker (Suspension) OUTS Brodie Smith (Injured),Matt Crouch (Omitted),Ned McHenry (Injured)

Who’d have thought a corked calf would be worse than Cripps hamstring injury, but Hewett isnt named if you, like I did, held. Massive shock with Matt Crouch being dropped. Looks like owners now have an excuse to trade. A couple of rookie priced options here into the extended bench, so check Friday extended bench selections at 5pm.
