Eagling’s LoEC2 Preview – R5

Written by Motts on April 30 2015

It was one of the most devastating weekends in living memory for my Supercoach team, as boom recruits Rory Sloane and Brodie Smith failed to fire. I lost 90% of league matches and scraped to a below 2000 point finish. Is the only way up?   Only time will tell.

Round 5 Preview

teamcustard (9) v Jetz (2)

PODS: Goodes, Johnson, Kelly, Newton, Neale, Kennedy, Gibbs, Read, Lamb, McGrath v Brown, Smith, Hodge, Fyfe, Pendlebury, van Berlo, Cox, Lonie, Gray, Krakouer

Jetz to continue its good form and go 4-0 to begin the season.

Mack Attack (16) v Bring Back Ratts (13)

PODS: Gibson, van Berlo, Newton, Watson, Kennedy, Boak, Maric, Naitanui, Lonie, Goddard v Smith, Miller, Pendlebury, Anderson, Sloane, Cockatoo, Goldstein, Bellchambers, Minson, Bontempelli

I’m going for a home win here – under 50 points the margin.

500Miles (18) v Small Victories (14)

PODS: Newnes, Lumumba, Goodes, Lewis, Kennedy, Cockatoo, Rich, Goldstein, Maric, Bontempelli, Lonie, McGrath, Saad v Brown, Smith, Ibbotson, Miller, Pendlebury, Selwood, Beams, Newton, Naitanui, Bellchambers, Hogan, Lamb, Franklin

Small Victories should get a pretty big one this weekend.

Tankers (7) v 2 Boyds, 1 Cup (4)

PODS: Lumumba, Gibson, Brown, Murphy, van Berlo, Dangerfield, Wines, Swallow, Naitanui, Swan, Lamb, Franklin v Shaw, Hibberd, Simpson, Docherty, Selwood, Anderson, Sloane, Rich, Maric, Hogan, Gray, Krakouer

I reckon the away side has just that little bit extra and should come away with the 4 points.

wobblesbegone (8) v Sean’s Mob (11)

PODS: Smith, Kelly, Sheppard, Selwood, van Berlo, Griffen, Sloane, Bellchambers, O’Brien, Bontempelli, Gray, Krakouer v Gibson, Hibberd, Murphy, Beams, Newton, Sheed, Parker, Read, Goldstein, Lonie, Bartel, Riewoldt

I’m predicting a win to the home side, even if Gray doesn’t play. It should be a close game in any case.

Armchair Sportsman (17) v RELIEABLES (10)

PODS: Brown, Goodes, Pearce, Newton, Griffen, Lewis, Maric, Cox, Gray, Lamb v Oxley, Goddard, Langdon, Pendlebury, Lambert, Steven, Read, Jacobs, Zorko, Lycett

On the overall points ladder, RELIEABLES are sitting pretty at 2nd, whilst the Armchair Sportsman languishes in 17th place. I’m relying on the RELIEABLES TO cruise to victory here.

The Convict (15) v LI’L Sebastian (3)

PODS: Gibson, Johnson, Goddard, Yarran, Newton, Griffen, Neale, Lewis, Jong, Steele, Coniglio, Cox, Bontempelli, Goddard, Walker v Newnes, Shaw, Hibberd, McKenzie, Cripps, Heeney, Selwood, Beams, Anderson, Dangerfield, Watson, Read, Goldstein, Gray, Krakouer

The home side sits on the bottom of the points ladder, however I think the game will be closer than the positions of the teams might suggest. The away side by under 100 points.

Demons of Darch (12) v The Brown Shorts (1)

PODS: Hibberd, Simpson, van Berlo, Sloane, Sheed, Goldstein, Lamb, Bennell v Johnson, Docherty, Anderson, Griffen, Hannebery, Maric, Salem, Gray

I’m going to go for the home side to halt TBH’s unbeaten run at 3.

MaxPowerExperience (5) v Holyhead Harpies (6)

PODS: Shaw, Johnson, Selwood, Anderson, Griffen, Dangerfield, Read, Lonie, McGrath, Goddard v Smith, Birchall, van Berlo, Sloane, Wines, Nelson, Cox, Gray, Lamb, Higgins

The home side sits 8 places above the away side on the points ladder. I reckon it should have enough to win here.

  1. Good write up again Eagling, don’t like dropping players but Lycett is gone out of the RELIEABLES side. Watched him closely last week and he might be dropped from the real stuff.
