JLT Players Of Interest: Sydney Vs GWS Giants

The Battle of the Bridge was on in Blacktown, with Buddy, McVeigh, Grundy, JKelly, Hopper, Greene and Haynes all missing the action. For the majority of the game GWS controlled the game with precise kicking and plenty of polish and looked good with their ball movement, but this was JLT-1, so we need to be careful.

Stephen Coniglio

Started with an early goal and finished with game-high points, game-high ten tackles and looked the complete package, needs to be considered if he hasn’t already made your fantasy team

Tim Taranto

He may have been good last year, but every chance of taking another big step in 2019 filling the Shiel shoes, was right in the thick of things again

Zac Williams

A lazy 14 disposals in the first term before a minor injury scare halfway through the 2nd saw his night shortened by half with an ankle scare.

Jeremy Cameron

Looked terrific tonight, lead and moved well, covering plenty of ground, didn’t hit the scoreboard but gee he looked fit, more a draft prospect.

Heath Shaw

Was one of 5 GIants to go at 100% efficiency, 23 of 28 by foot with 12 marks, might be getting older but looks primed Lachie Whitfield: squeezed out onto a forward flank for most of the night to enable younger talent a shot

Jye Caldwell

Looked smooth and adjusted well, seems a genuine star, will be fighting for a best 22 spot, on his form tonight he probably gets a bench spot.

Jackson Hately

Like Caldwell, didn’t do his chances of getting an early game in the season proper, tonned up in SuperCoach.

Issac Heeney

Thrown forward for significant minutes due to the missing Buddy, very busy, looked great with five clearances and five tackles, still sits firmly at F2 behind Danger for me.

Jake Lloyd

Did what Jake Lloyd usually does, a gun, pick him!

Luke Parker

Played plenty of forward time early, don’t look too much into his mere 80 points tonight

Callum Mills

Goes under the radar a bit but don’t write him off for 2019, will be a pod and rightly deserves to be talked up more as a midfielder

Harry Cunningham

Defender draft alert, goes ok.

Jackson Thurlow

Crowned the ratio king tonight with a spread of 16:1.

Ryan Clarke

Won’t last very long under Horse if he backs up with another 55% efficiency in the backline next JLT.

Nick Blakely

Not a whole lot to see tonight, the kid is good but will be better in a stronger Swannie lineup.
