A quarter of a million dollars is in the kitty this week for the massive Grand Final between the Geelong Cats and the Sydney Swans. It’s the game that stops the nation and will be even better if you can claim a slice of this massive kitty. The boys have worked overtime trying to find some steals to bring home the bacon for the last time in AFL Draftstars for 2022.
GEELONG v SYDNEY = $250k
First Place = $21,800
Good luck and please, gamble responsibly.
Tom Hawkins (FWD, $11,540)
Hawkins sits nearly $1,000 cheaper than Cameron who failed to fire last week even in a massive win. Cameron managed 54 whereas the Big Hawk kicked 4.3 for his second 100+ in his last three games. This man is hungry and after Tom McCartin held him to 38pts in round two, this guy has a point to prove as he hunts a flag.
James Rowbottom (MID, $13,700)
No one in this game has the form quiet like Rowbottom with previous scores of 94, 110, 104, 108, 90, 129 and 105…. And adding to that he is the sixth most expensive player. He scored 94 last week from limited touches but tackled his way to a good scoring nailing 10. This is what we like to see. If you break the bank with the likes of Mills and Parker… then your team will be dropping off rather quickly. Rowy will get the job and save you coin!
Joel Selwood (MID, $11,430)
Now… he only scored 73 last week but sat heaps when the game was done. In fact he only played 68% of the game. Last week even in the short time, he managed 57% CBAs (more than Dangerfield). He met these guys in round two for a quick fire 70 (58% TOG) and could be huge on the big stage.
Zac Guthrie (DEF, $10,130)
Zac’s first two finals have been sensational with scores of 96 and 81. He was the fourth highest scorer for the Cats last week with that 96 which came off the back of 19 touches, 7 marks and a goal. He ranks eighth on price for defenders here and should be much higher base don his finals form.
Tyson Stengle (FWD, $10,470)
He only managed 56 (3 goals) last week but leading into that game he has been on fire scoring 71, 93, 83, 64 and 76. We are taking that everyday of the week. Forwards are heard to pick in his one and we are not paying up for the likes of Gulden (13,230) as it just hurts you too much in other areas.
Mark Blicavs (RUC/MID, $12,490)
Our team is built around our rucks. Basically, you can’t have Stanley who is coming off 53, 50 and 28 and Hickey who is only marginally cheaper had a great 93 last week (v Darcy Cameron who gives up points) and let’s not forget that he had 49 in round 22 and 49 when these teams met in round two.
Blicavs is clearly the pick of the three and has form on his side as well scoring 94, 51, 100 and 120 in his last four games this year. He had that 94 last week and attended bulk CBAs, the most of any midfielder and only their ruckman (Stanley) had more.
In a nut shell – you need a ruck, and in my eyes there is ONLY one!
