For the second night in a row, the AFL was back at Marvel Stadium. This time, it’s with the premiership chasing Western Bulldogs having their last competitive hitout of the preseason against another potential flag contender in Brisbane. Here’s MJ’s take of who stood out for fantasy coaches and who it might be time to fade out on.
It’s not often a player scores over 200 so when one does we watch in awe and ride the wave. A big congratulations to those 31.8% of coaches who have him in their team, and even more so if you had him as captain or played the VC loophole. As it happens, the last time we saw a score of 200+ was round 10 last year. It also happened to be Clayton Oliver. And it also happened to be against Adelaide. We all know what to lock in for next year!
As Monty Python’s “The Life Brian” reminds us, we’ve always got to look on the bright side of life. For despite another round of carnage for many coaches there were plenty of positives to take away from this weekend’s games. Let’s at least name some of these before moving to the more critical issues many have to deal with.
