Calvin's Captains

Calvin’s Captains – Rd. 15

All the premium guns are back and Calvin is super-confident with this list. Who you going with?

All the big guns are back, which make my job a little easier. 9 games are on offer this week and there are some juicy matches that should suit the needs of all. We have some BIG names playing early as well which makes life a lot easier when allocating that VC. For the record, English was sitting at #4 against the ruckless hawks but we all know how this has ended.

1. Clayton Oliver

@ MCG
THURS 7:20pm
2x140+ scores in his last four. Coming off 146His form is elite and only plays the 5th easiest team to score against. Had 102, 86, 156, 111 and 125 in his last five on the Lions.
2. Jack Macrae

@ Marvel
FRI 7:00pm
#1 man on form averaging 126 in his last threeHawks are still #1 easiest this year and Macrae has dominated them in the past with 128, 112, 124, 116 and 126.
3. Lachie Neale

@ MCG
THURS 7:20pm
140, 71, 128 and 122 his last four against the DemonsTicks all the boxes in this one against a team that gives up plenty. Averaging 125 in his last three, Neale is a super VC option.
4. Andrew Brayshaw

@ Marvel
SAT 1:45pm
141 and 131 in his last two games is too hard too ignore.Brayshaw has scored 116 and 124 in his last two games against the Blues and he should be great again.
5. Callum Mills

@ SCG
SAT 7:25pm
Elite form with 116, 126, 101, 112 and 156 in his last five.Back home but his record on the Saints is poor with 0x100+ in his career six games against them. Won't matter... back him in!
6. Rory laird

@ Blundstone
SUN 1:10pm
140, 90, 100, 115 and 138 are his last five on the Roos.North are easy, but last time they played they used Turner as a tagger on Kelly (95). Could happen again, otherwise Laird would be much higher.
7. Jordan Dawson


@ Blundstone
SUN 1:10pm
118 last week and this will be easy as for defenders/wingers.North v GWS, defenders went nuts. Himmelberg (16m, 161), Whitfield (14m, 130) and Cumming (10m, 128) all didn't struggle.
8. Josh kelly

@ MCG
SUN 3:20pm
Collingwood #1 easiest for MIDs in last five weeksHis form is down but he has been tagged and had to play the Bulldogs. He bounces back here and scored 75, 115, 111, 118 and 162 in his recent games v the Pies.
9. Sam Walsh

@ Marvel
SAT 1:45pm
Gone 109+ in four of his last five.His form is up their with the best and against the Dockers, Walsh has scored 128 and 116 in his last two. Can't see him dropping under 115 here.
10 Cam Guthrie

@ MCG
SAT 4:35pm
126, 98, 126 and 114 in his last four, he's firing nowGuthrie produced the goods last week and hasn't put a foot wrong recently. He even had 117 and 139 on the Tigers last year.

      OOo that sounds like a nice POD cap pick, tempting to throw the vc on him

        Actually nvm he plays on the last day haha

      The mason cox factor last game is too much to consider Cameron a smokey

    Vc on Neale.. if he spuds it, then Macrae capitano

  5. BestowedMisery

    June 22, 2022 at 10:23 pm

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Trac lights it up tomorrow.
    He’s been a spud for a few weeks now..
    Surely he has some pride regarding his performances?

    • Anthony

      June 23, 2022 at 12:02 pm

      that was my thinking on the queens birthday… he probably will fire this week tho.

  6. MAC

    June 23, 2022 at 4:33 pm

    Merrett vs WCE… 143pts.

    • Jay1

      June 24, 2022 at 2:23 pm

      Let’s hope so. That would be nice. But hoping that Macrae gets the job done tonight as VC, so I don’t have to think about captains for the weekend.

    Calvin off to a typical cracking start after one game in captains. lol

    #1 Oliver. Fail
    #3 Neale. Fail

    • Pendles4Brownlow

      VC on Oliver. Should have taken it, but didn’t think Macca would be worse. No doubt, Laird will now smash the Northern Witches Hats.

    • Pendles4Brownlow

      June 25, 2022 at 9:41 am

      Not Calvin’s best week, especially knowing it’s really only the top few that count.

    • Death Adders22

      Well put Jay1. Cal is your typical AFL Nuffie and he tells everyone that he is never wrong LOL

  8. Mark

    June 25, 2022 at 9:06 am

    I have two teams, I put a C on Oliver in one and Macrae in the other!

  9. Death Adders22

    June 25, 2022 at 12:54 pm

    See how I go because I asked on Thursday why didn’t the NUFFIE add Coniglio to the Captain choices. He goes off the players scores from last time they played WRONG. The worst thing about it is he thinks he is right. Expert LOL. Give it up Calvin these young kids are meant to be looking up to experts and your far from an expert. And these 3 travel interstate and get payed just to hear there Bullshit
