Essendon V St Kilda

Written by Duck on March 4 2011

St Kilda are looking the goods this year after a good hit out against Geelong, i haven’t seen much of Essendon yet this year but they must be doing half reasonable to be in the final 4.

I’ll be watching tonight’s game as will many of my fellow coaches but here’s he all important question …. Who’s on your radar?

  1. Essendon- A.Browne, Hibberd, Heppell, Hurley(not in my team at the moment), Watson.

    STK- Ledger, ST Nick, Fisher, Gilbert, Dal Santo, Goddard


  2. Hepell, Hurley for the bombers. Heppel is almost a lock whereas Hurley I’m not sure about just yet. As for the saints, I’m wondering whether to take a “Gamble”


  3. angus monfies ,brent stanton ,patrick ryder,stewart crameri , dyson heppell , and micheal hibberd have had a good start for 2011..


  4. McKernan might be a nice pick up now after both Tippett and Henderson went down injured in Adelaide vs Carlton hitout.


  5. hey motts just wondering if the blues left any crows standing after the match today ??
    and just wondering what you’re thourghts are on Byron, Schammer
    as i am looking for a 6th mid swapping off the bench
    i have 226k left at the moment
    cheers mate and go the BLUES!!


  6. Shhhh Motts might have received a few tips at the horse sales this week.

    Moonee Vally (last night)
    Race 1 – Plain Lucky (it won)

    Race 1 – Testawan
    Race 7 – On The Rocks

    Race 3 – Psychologist
    Race 6 – Under the Eiffel

    Eagle Farm
    Race 7 – Dalzar

    Motts gambles responsibly and encourages everybody to do likewise.


  7. Power v Geelong – Friday, 4th March at AAMI Stadium

    My handful that are worthy of consideration for super coachers.


    1) Travis Boak (Midfield $471,300) – Clearly best on ground racking up 28 possies and will be cherry ripe come Round 1. Showed no signs of uninterupted pre-season, looks set for a big year.

    2) Jackson Trengove (Defender/Ruck $255,800) – With Chaplin and Carlile taking the key forwards, young Jackson was able to gather 23 touches pulling in 8 marks to provide some spark of half back for Port.

    3) Daniel Stewart (Forward $250,800). Most will be considering Vezpremi, Krakoeur & Petrie (when available) as cheap forwards, but do not discount this bloke. Showed some very good sides when relieving for Brogan and along with possibly Westhoff will be the ruck combination. Managed 15 touches including 3 goals.

    4) Jarrod Irons (Midfield $91,700) ROOKIE – With Adelaide’s Callinan being injured, this opens up the opportunity to perhaps snaffle this bloke up as a bargain. They say big wraps on the kid, and the 2 games that I’ve seen, certainly hasn’t disappointed. Roamed between the wing & forward area and produced 22 possies kicking a goal as well. Mail says he’ll get upgraded because Lobbe is on the long term injury list and given a crack round 1. Looked right at home.

    Jaspar Pittard (full game) and Cameron O’Shea (half game) both playing in defence did ok, but thought Jaspar played better in Rnd 1 of NAB cup. Not confident either will play Round 1.

    Highlight – Seeing David Rodan back after second LARS surgery on knee to collect 19 touches. Not bad for first game back.


    1) James Kelly (Midfield $482,200) – Captained the side on the night and clearly the Cat’s best racking up 24 touches.

    2) Matthew Stokes (Forward $333,100) – Played alot of the match in the middle and had about 20 possies, but how much time he’ll spend in the middle, will depend on all the guns coming back in, is anyone’s guess but just keep in mind.

    3) Taylor Hunt (Defender $264,800) – Thought Taylor went ok, gathered 20 touches and was one of the go to men when coming out of defence and spent some time in the middle as well.

    4) Trent West (Ruck $243,300) – IMO went ok against Brogan. 8 or so touches and booted a goal and I guess when looking for a cheap ruck, considering Blake didn’t fill me with much confidence last night, might be a go.

    Josh Cowan looks like a smaller version of Matthew Scarlett with the black moppy hair showed some signs, that he may get a game throughout the season and a possible bench pickup. Cat fan’s probably know more than me if rookie or already on senior list. Motlop was another interested to have a look at but sustained a foot injury and had little input.

    Hope this info helps – might have bored some readers, but if it helps you out then good luck to you – BK
