Category - 2012 – Round 20
Chris Knights – 141
Tom Lynch – 98
Jarryd Lyons – 94
Brad Symes – 92
Mitch Grigg – 90
Chris Knights was in fine form on Sunday in Woodville West-Torrens 92 points win over North Adelaide. He was named fourth best for the Eagles having picked up 32 touches, nine marks and 3.1. His last four SANFL games have been punctuated by AFL appearances, but he has scored four tons in a row for the Eagles.
Tom Lynch was once again good for Glenelg to be named second best playing a bit further up the ground between the arcs. He had 24 touches, 11 marks and has averaged 110.7 in his last three SANFL games.
Some will be interested to hear about Mitch Grigg’s progress, as he was a name getting bandied around a bit in the pre-season. He’s actually spent most of the year in Norwood’s reserves team and it was only his third game in the seniors for 2012 on the weekend. He did well though and scored 90 points for his 20 possessions, six marks and 1.1.
Brisbane reserves had a bye.
David Ellard – 153
Kane Lucas – 91
Jordan Russell – 90
Paul Bower – 85
The Northern Blues went down to Williamstown in very boggy conditions, only managing six goals for the day. Those sort of conditions suited David Ellard to a tee. He was a beast around stoppages and racked up 29 touches, five marks, ten tackles, not to mention about half of their score with three goals.
Kane Lucas added two goals himself from his 15 touches, which included seven tackles. Jordan Russell and Paul Bower were good in the back half with 21 and 18 possessions respectively, while Nick Duigan was named in the best players with 15 touches and five tackles.
Jarrod Witts – 89
Brent Macaffer – 81
Ben Johnson – 79
Andrew Krakouer – 71
Collingwood reserves were defeated handsomely by Sandringham on Sunday. For the Pies, it was more about the guys on the comeback trail, because there weren’t a whole heap of standout individual performances.
Jarrod Witts was very impressive up forward and in the ruck. The big man had 19 touches, seven marks, 17 hitouts and kicked a goal. Physically he’s already well developed, but with another pre-season under his belt he should be unleashed at some stage in 2013 and is one to keep an eye on.
Ben Johnson played his first game back since having shoulder surgery mid year and he wasn’t too bad with 19 touches and four marks. His precision kicking was on show on a few occasions, but the small ground at Sandy didn’t suit him too well. It was a good hit out for him though.
Brent Macaffer and Andrew Krakouer were in their second game back from their knee reconstructions. Macaffer was quite impressive across half back, picking up 20 touches and eight marks. He’s sporting a rocking beard too. Krakouer was only lively in small patches and the early signs are that he’ll be pushing it to get back into the AFL team this year. He had 16 touches and kicked a goal.
Bendigo had a bye.
Nick Lower – 131
Jay van Berlo – 120
Zac Clarke – 95
Nick Lower was fantastic in a BOG performance for Perth in their comeback victory against East Perth. He scored 131 AFL Dream Team points from his 34 touches, six marks, four tackles and 1.1.
Zac Clark just snuck into the best players for East Perth playing as a ruck and forward for 16 touches and 15 hitouts, however unfortunately for the big man Aaron Sandilands is on the verge of a return.
Jay van Berlo worked hard for his 18 touches, ten tackles and 2.1 for West Perth, while rookie listed Sam Menegola scored 89 DT points in his role as a roaming forward for East Freo.
George Burbury – 110
George Horlin-Smith – 94
Shannon Byrnes – 88
Mitch Brown – 87
Ryan Bathie – 85
In Geelong’s come from behind win against ladder leading Casey Scorpions, rookie listed George Burbury had another good game off wing and half forward, picking up 26 touches, five marks, seven tackles and kicking 0.3. His second half to the year has been pretty good and sees him as a likely retention.
George Horlin-Smith is one who has been blooded for some AFL games this year and his VFL form has been good. On the weekend he had 20 touches, five marks and seven tackles to keep his name in the selection frame.
Mitch Brown continues his development, but played a bit more forward on the weekend with 17 touches and seven marks. He also snuck forward for a goal. Tom Gillies game was not as statistically good, but he won the plaudits of the coaches for his role in defence.
Shane Kersten was deadly up forward, making the most of his nine touches and six marks by kicking 5.0 for 74 DT points, while former middle distance runner Mark Blicavs (Blitz-arvs for those wondering) in only his third game for the club kicked 3.1 from 12 possessions. Obviously he’s very raw having only recently converted to AFL, but he showed some good signs. Fellow convert, though this one from basketball Ryan Bathie had his best game for the season in defence with 20 touches and eight marks.
Shannon Byrnes was lively, shipping in with two goals and 88 DT points.
Andrew McQualter – 140
Alik Magin – 128
Piers Flanagan – 123
Michael Coad – 111
Josh Fraser – 77
It wasn’t all winning for Gold Coast at Metricon Stadium on Saturday. The reserves went down by a goal to GWS in the curtain raiser. With both sides heavily injury affected they agreed to play 16 a side, with Gold Coast having 20 players overall to GWS’ 19.
Alik Magin drew huge praise from coach Shaun Hart for his effort in the midfield and up forward, where he kicked two goals from 24 touches. He was named BOG and after being one of the emergencies on the weekend he’ll be in the frame for a recall this week.
Josh Fraser was dominant up forward with five goals, but Guy McKenna all but confirmed he had played his last AFL game with the Suns last week, as priority will be given to developing youngsters Tom Hickey and Tom Nicholls, who incidentally both played well.
Andrew McQualter racked up 28 touches, 12 marks and six tackles, while youngster Piers Flanagan had a game high 32 touches and nine marks.
Dom Tyson – 115
Nathan Wilson – 86
Gerald Ugle – 74
As mentioned above, GWS beat Gold Coast reserves in a 16 a side match. The Giants fielded 12 listed players, with a number of them on return from injury. Liam Sumner (11 touches) and Rhys Cooyou (seven touches, two goals) played their first games after long lay offs. Sumner had been missing since Round 7 when he developed stress fractures in his foot, while Cooyou hadn’t played since Round 1 with a groin injury.
Dom Tyson played his second game back from an eight week shin injury and was named in the best players with two goals from his 25 touches, which included five tackles. Nathan Wilson was in good form with 18 touches, four tackles and two goals to push his case for a senior recall, but mind you there’s at least five changes most weeks at GWS so it’s a bit of a lotto.
Tom Murphy – 115
Tom Schneider – 107
Tom Murphy played a bit more up the ground and picked up 26 touches and 11 marks in Box Hill’s narrow loss to powerhouses Port Melbourne. Tom Schneider played an outside role on the weekend and still managed to find plenty of the ball, with 24 touches, seven marks and four tackles.
Overall it wasn’t a huge day for numbers from Hawthorn’s crew down at Box Hill, but Derrick Wanganeen returned with 15 touches and eight marks, while Brad Hill excited with some of his run, collecting 20 touches and seven marks for 75 AFL Dream Team points.
Jack Fitzpatrick – 132
Tom Couch – 105
Michael Evans – 90
Jordan Gysberts – 89
Casey Scorpions blew a solid half time lead against Geelong to go down by 14 points, but young ruck/forward Jack Fitzpatrick showed plenty of promise with 13 touches, three marks, 22 hitouts and 5.2. He was mostly used up forward and moved into the middle to relieve in the ruck.
Tom Couch was industrious with 27 touches, seven tackles and eight clearances. Jordan Gysberts was also good in the middle with 23 touches, five tackles and two goals.
Jai Sheahan had his best game of the season by far. More often seen in the VFL Reserves he took this opportunity in defence and was named fourth best with 20 touches and five marks.
In his first game back, Liam Jurrah struggled, only picking up five touches.
Levi Greenwood – 117
Ben McKinley – 101
Majak Daw – 101
Cam Pedersen – 94
Cam Richardson – 93
In the battle of North Melbourne’s partial alignment, Werribee absolutely smashed North Ballarat. The Roosters are having a real down season and only managed to score two goals for the whole day – one of those to Aaron Edwards, but I’m not about to heap praise on his game.
For Werribee, Levi Greenwood was the dominant player on the stats sheet with 36 disposals, four marks and four tackles to be named third best. Ben McKinley had a fantastic game if it wasn’t for his wayward goal kicking. The medium forward had 20 touches from seven marks and kicked a very wobbly 2.7. Nine shots is nine shots and he was named second best, but he obviously could’ve done much more with that.
Cam Pedersen and Majak Daw were both good spending a bit of time in the ruck. Pedersen played down back for the most part and had it 23 times, along with four marks, four tackles and 13 hitouts, while Daw had 16 touches, 19 hitouts and kicked 1.1.
On the other side, there wasn’t much for the Roosters to ‘crow’ about. Cam Richardson was their top ball winner with 22 touches, seven marks and five tackles on the wing.
Steven Salopek – 81
Aaron Young – 70
Usually the above is a list of the best fantasy scorers of a weekend for each club. In this instance it is the entire list of Port players in the SANFL. Obviously they’ve been hit pretty hard by injury and on the weekend they only had two in the SANFL Seniors and three in SANFL Reserves.
Steven Salopek had 22 touches and six marks for Port Magpies, while Aaron Young was named BOG for a North Adelaide side that was thrashed by 92 points for his 25 touches and five clearances.
Mitch Banner and Simon Phillips performed well at Reserves level, both scoring over a ton, but that’s a long way from the AFL…
Kelvin Moore – 91
Matthew Dea – 80
Seriously guys, what the hell?! Frankston have won four games in the past three seasons – all of them against Coburg. They are literally the only side Frankston have beaten since the Beijing Olympics.
To really drive the point home, Coburg only kicked three goals for the day in a horribly low scoring affair. As you can imagine there were not a lot of stand out players for Richmond, but Kelvin Moore was the top ball winner of their AFL listed players with 20 touches and nine marks in defence. Matt Dea and Addam Maric had 19 touches each.
Tom Curren – 130
Arryn Siposs – 114
Cameron Shenton – 89
Clint Jones – 84
Rookie listed Tom Curren was super impressive playing wing and half forward in Sandringham’s big win over Collingwood. He collected 32 possessions, along with eight marks and two goals. Typically he likes the bigger grounds, being a predominantly outside player, but he was in very good touch.
Arryn Siposs was the danger man up forward and kicked 4.2 from his 22 touches and eight marks, including a couple from long range.
Cam Shenton hasn’t settled too well over in Melbourne, but he had arguably his best game for the season. He came over from Norwood in the SANFL as a medium forward, but has switched to defence and was one of Sandy’s better players with 23 touches, four tackles, as well as sneaking forward for a goal.
Clint Jones was a tactical late out for the Saints and he lined up for Sandy later that weekend, collecting 23 touches, five marks and four tackles. Jack Newnes sat out the last quarter, presumably to be in the selection mix for this Friday night (five day turn around) and he had 16 touches, six marks and five tackles in his limited TOG. Jason Blake returned from a couple of months off with an ankle injury.
Mitch Morton – 167
Tommy Walsh – 147
Matt Spangher – 137
Jed Lamb – 125
Jarred Moore – 124
Jesse White – 115
Brett Meredith – 113
Mitch Morton, Tommy Walsh and Matt Spangher dominated up forward with six, six and five goals respectively in Sydney’s routine 20 goal win. They’ve been in good touch of late, however Sam Reid is closing in on a return, so the opportunities for those guys would most likely come while he is out.
Mind you, with the forward line not functioning well in the seniors last week there is a chance for one of them this week. Jesse White was also named second best with 22 touches and 48 hit outs if they decide to take an extra tall in this week.
Jed Lamb was named BOG with his 31 touches, five tackles and two goals. He was particularly good through the midfield with his strength around the clearances. The ever consistent Jarred Moore had 38 touches and five tackles.
Bradd Dalziell – 87
Koby Stevens – 87
Lewis Stevenson – 81
East Fremantle duo Bradd Dalziell and Koby Stevens were the top scorers for West Coast listed players, each scoring 87 points. Dalziell picked up 26 touches and kicked a goal from the midfield, while Stevens playing predominantly as a forward had 17 disposals, five marks, four tackles and also kicked a goal.
Lewis Stevenson has been pushing for selection lately and was handy for Claremont with 20 touches and five marks.
Ayce Cordy – 115
Easton Wood – 70
In a game more notable for it’s tackle count than anything on the glamourous side, Williamstown beat the Northern Blues by four goals in a low scoring affair. The Bulldogs only had eight listed players lining up.
Ayce Cordy was impressive with 14 touches, five tackles, four marks, 36 hitouts and a goal to be named BOG, which is the same three letters that could be used to describe the ground it was played on.
Easton Wood made his return from injury and was amongst the best players with 20 disposals and five marks. Patrick Veszpremi made a move to the forward line, where he made his name early in his career at Sydney and had 16 touches, five marks and kicked 2.3 to end with 68 AFL Dream Team points.
Lukas Markovic returned from his hamstring injury. While padding the stats sheet isn’t his main area, he had seven touches and it was good to see him back.
Well the first week of league finals are done and dusted. How did you fair? I think Dan will be pretty happy with himself having finally overtaken KP in the rankings!
Share your weekend Winners & Wieners and let us know where you’re currently sitting overall!
So here we are at the annual, “what do I do with my Collingwood player who has received a club suspension on the eve of fantasy finals?” Unfortunately, this one is far reaching because Dane Swan is an integral member of 90,000 AFL Dream Team and 80,000 SuperCoach teams.
There’s two main schools of thought, from a philosophical point of view and I’m on each side of the fence in each competition, so allow me to think out loud as I present my thoughts in article format to hopefully help our readers – and of course, give you the opportunity to leave comments to help my own thought process. No, this isn’t a selfish way of getting everyone to help me out…but I’ll take whatever I can get right now!
PLAYING FOR A LEAGUE WIN
If you’re playing for your league win you’ve hopefully left yourself with a few trades up your sleeve, as is the general tactic for that plan. What it really comes down to is your position in the finals. Are you in the Top 4 and holding a double chance? Or are you in a sudden death 5th-8th battle?
I’M IN A SUDDEN DEATH FINAL, FFS SWANNY!
Obviously everyone will have a different situation based on how many trades you have, or if you’ve been hit badly by other Buddy, Stanton, Porplyzia type issues. With that said, if you’re in a 5th-8th position and you’re holding Swan I really believe trading is the way to go. To advance you’re going to have to do it without Swanny TWICE. Unless you’re bleeding in other positions on the ground the priority should go to replacing your gun midfielder. It will be tough going in the last two weeks without him, but it’s a pretty decent risk to try and knock off two opponents (one who will have finished in the Top 4 of your league) without him.
Granted, if Sam Gibson is your coverage he makes for an interesting decision. By all means, if you feel Gibson can score as much as a potential elite replacement then roll the dice with him. I know Gibson’s numbers have been fantastic, but I would personally feel uneasy going into a do or die final with a bloke in his 9th AFL game filling in for one of the games elite players in hot form.
Gibson is the only rookie coverage you should consider having fill in for Swanny if you choose not to trade him, but it’s a pretty big call to back him in. It’s a gutsy call, but when it comes to sudden death personally I’d rather be bringing in someone of Pendlebury, Thompson or Watson ilk to get my team over the line.
I HAVE A DOUBLE CHANCE
If you have finished in the Top 4 of your main league, first of all, congratulations. This is where you can get a bit more analytical, because you only need to get one win without Swanny to advance to the Prelims where your team will be reunited with the great man. Can you get that win this week against your opposition? Ideally you’ll be a red hot crack to do it without Swanny, which will allow you to save yourself a trade. It’s a reasonably bold move, but if you have good coverage I would be comfortable with the safety net of a double chance.
All is not lost if you don’t get through this week and you did keep Swanny. You can make the same choice the following week to keep or not to keep Swanny for your sudden death semi final. It might seem excessive to trade him out just for one week, but it’s a new situation to assess – and one you could even explore this week. Have a look at your cross over finals and see how the two teams playing for the right to play the loser of your match are shaping up.
If you’re pessimistic about how your next two opponents (well, three if you consider this weeks opponent and the fact you have TWO potential opponents next week) then you could look to trade Swanny.
Personally, in my main SuperCoach league (this is the one I’m focussing on league win) I’m looking at my opposition and he also has Swan and I feel I have him covered as our teams currently stand. I also feel I have him covered if he trades Swan to another gun. He knows about this site, but I hope he doesn’t read this article, because after lunch I’m going to try and suss out what he’s doing with his trades this week. Do what you can to find out what your opponent is doing?! If that involves getting sneaky and offering a mate a few of the same beverages that created this whole predicament I’d do it. Explore every avenue to get that info – how many trades they have left, cash in the bank and even better what they’re planning to do. It’s not the honourable thing to do, but honour can go and get stuffed where league glory and gloating to your friends, family or work colleagues is concerned!
PLAYING FOR OVERALL RANK
I am a little nervous starting this section of the article because I don’t want to give our loyal reader Dartanian a bum steer. He is currently sitting in 8th overall in SuperCoach, so this is a crucial decision. Good luck mate! We all want to be in your position, but I certainly don’t envy the stress and anxiety your ranking creates (or so I can imagine).
In AFL Dream Team I’m not really interested in how my leagues look. In fact, I can honestly say I haven’t looked to see if I have qualified for finals in any of them. Those who watch the show will know that Kristian and I have been in a pretty tight battle for the second half of this year and despite him having led every week, I’m ready to pounce, only nine points behind him.
My thinking on this one is to trade. Unfortunately I have Swan and Stanton, so while Gibson can be viewed as solid coverage I am less enthused about getting Baguley’s score. In an ideal world Stanton would be moving on, so my cash situation doesn’t allow him to go to anyone worthwhile.
Ultimately an aggressive approach and the right call will be the best thing for your overall ranking. Ignoring my situation, and this is similar to the philosophy you’d use if you were in a sudden death final, I wouldn’t sit on my hands and take Gibson’s score, or whoever you might have covering, UNLESS you have traded your way into seven gun mids ie. Priddis or Murphy as a 7th mid when they were dirt cheap.
The reason I’d take an aggressive approach for overall ranking is that the points are too crucial and with so few weeks left there is a bit less margin for error. We all know the end of the season throws us some curve balls with team selection, and I’m sure Swanny isn’t the last one, but if you’ve established good coverage I think Swanny missing half of the rest of the season is an opportunity to make points on those who choose to play their back up.
I’m going to consider Ablett a given, but if you don’t have him, you can use this opportunity to grab him. Aside from that, I’m keen on Scott Thompson, who plays Freo (AS), Brisbane (Gabba), Melbourne (MCG) and Gold Coast (AS) in his last four games. That is a golden run home if I’ve ever seen one. Admittedly, Freo and Crowley is a bit of a worry. Earlier this year when they met Crowley kept him to a 65 in AFL Dream Team and 58 in SuperCoach (his second worst DT score and worst SC of 2012). However, his last two before that against Freo were a 143 and 154 in AFL Dream Team and a 140 and 152 in SuperCoach. Furthermore, despite Crowley on Thompson working last time, it’s possible that Dangerfield’s form is too good to ignore.
The reason I’m strong on Thompson over the field (apart from Ablett and maybe Pendlebury) is that I reckon he is a genuine chance to outscore Swan in the last two weeks anyway. You could, for example, take Gibson, Gibson, Swan, Swan for your last four or Thompson x 4 and personally I’d rather the latter.
Anyway, my views are in no way definitive and this should be a good discussion point for the rest of the day. So hit us with your scenario, because there will be so many unique situations in dealing with Swanny this week.
