Just a short, sharp one this week to wrap it all up especially since breakeven and future prices don’t matter…
Jayden Short (Rich), $426.4k, average 86.2 – Going on a hot streak over rounds 10 to 18, Short averaged 100 points with scores between 86 and 114. Given the consistency, he’s remained at a very nice price all season but scores of 63 and 68 in rounds 19 and 20 have forced his price down but he’s bounced back the last fortnight to hit some hot form with 101 and 94 at the right time of year. Will be one to seriously consider next year for our starting teams if some of our current targets don’t get the discounts we want given his average and potential but is great value this week for those looking for a direct Witherden replacement.
Zac Tuohy (Geel), $420.1k, average 84.6 – He was suppose to break out and reach the heights of 90+ in SuperCoach in 2018 but it appears the departures of Mackie and Lonergan have made him more accountable. That said, he very much likes Kardinia Park/Simonds/Skilled or whatever the hell the going name is this year averaging just a notch of 93 points there. Up against the Gold Coast this week at his favourite oval, look for decent final returns.
Taylor Adams (Coll), $526.1k, average 96.2 – As a Fremantle supporter, I’m scared. If Sandilands doesn’t play, Grundy is going to absolutely destroy Darcy and Adams will be at his feet all day being force fed clearances. Averaging over 107 points last year, Adams average in 2018 is down due to injuries but with a 5 round average of 114, he is in form and is ready to help Collingwood boost their percentage in the last game of the season. Adams scored 117 back in round 11 when he last faced Fremantle if that helps his case.
Rory Sloane (Adel), $482.9k, average 96.6 – The Sloaneranger has finally got his body right and has scored 111, 109 and 110 in his last 3 starts. Up against Carlton, who haven’t tagged in the last half of the season and have allowed some huge scores to opposition midfielders in recent weeks, expect Sloane to cash in giving his owners a very nice score on Saturday night.
Jarrad Waite (NM), $419.8k, average 87.6 – You must think I’m crazy. Well, maybe I am, but I love a sense of occasion and in Waites final game, he could be set for a big one. He has never had a solid run with a suspension and injury riddled career but when he’s on, he’s on and as averaged 126 over a 6 week period in the past and has numerous 160+ scores next to his name. He’s played 12 games this season and has registered 5 tonnes, including 125 against St Kilda who he faces this weekend. He showed no signs of ageing last week scoring 119 against Adelaide courtesy of 15 disposals, 10 marks, 3 tackles and 3 goals. As Titus O’Reily said, it wouldn’t be a farewell game for him without kicking a bag of goals…. and get suspended…. and get injured….
