LLOYD v Dons
- L3 v Dons: 145, 122, 83 (117 av.)
- L3 @ SCG: 124, 157, 111 (131 av.)
Yet to flex his seagull ceiling this year but got a good record v Dons and @ the SCG, should be solid for 120. Ridley also an option for those looking for a Thursday night VC.
BONTEMPELLI v Lions
- L3 v Lions: 138, 166, 99 (134 av.)
- L3 @ MAR: N/A
Copped some defensive attention from Anderson but still managed to scrape to 80~ last week. Dogs love to play at down at Ballarat, pencil Bont in for 125 with the Dogs MIDs getting the drop on an ailing Lions midfield.
MACRAE v Lions
- L3 v Lions: 183, 155, 135 (158 av.)
- L3 @ MAR: 189 (189 av.)
Same deal as Bont pretty much, but Macrae’s also got a tremendous record v the Lions in particular and has been the Dogs #1 CB attendee in the opening rounds. 130 at a minimum, with a chance to go large. Dunkley also viable if you don’t have Bont or Macrae.
GRUNDY v Giants
- L3 v GWS: 135, 157, 139 (144 av.)
- L3 @ MCG: 135, 70, 151 (119 av.)
Carves it up in Melbourne, starting to look real sharp and coming up against an inexperienced ruckman in Flynn surrounded by a GWS midfield on the decline. A lock for 135 this week.
GAWN v Cats
- L3 v Cats: 141, 116, 139 (132 av.)
- L3 @ MCG: 93, 163, 141 (132 av.)
Cats running Blicavs, Stanley and Hawkins as rucks currently, who Gawn will lay waste to. Also out of the rigid 30% FWD role and having more of an impact across the ground. On that, and his great ceiling at the G, back him in for 140.
MITCHELL v Freo
- L3 v Freo: 102, 150, 126 (126 av.)
- L3 @ OS: 132, 102, 164 (133 av.)
Copped O’Connor last week, but otherwise ticking along nicely. Blues starting to falter and leak points and Titch got a chance to hone his skills in the Perth hub last season. A lock for 125.
SATAN v Cats
- L3 v Cats: 111, 141, 123 (125 av.)
- L3 @ MCG: 122, 96, 111 (110 av.)
De Boer was straight to him last week and expect O’Connor, now the Cats’ designated tagger, to do the same. Sub-ton unfortunately incoming, steer clear.
LAIRD v Roos
- L3 v Roos: 93, 106, 117 (105 av.)
- L3 @ MRVL: 124, 138, 105 (122 av.)
Roos just absolutely bleeding SC points and letting 3-4 opposition MIDs get 30 toucheseach week. Perfect game for Laird to accumulate and sail to 125 provided he corrects his sloppy DE of late.
Assuming Koschitzke is dropped and not the medical sub, I’ll be able to go Grundy into Gawn. If Kos holds or potentially the sub, it’ll be Macrae into Gawn. Either way, G&G have to be in your calculations this week.
