Just a quick post so we’ve something to look at lunchtime on a Friday …

WCE: Elliott YEO, Andrew GAFF, Jeremy McGOVERN, Jack DARLING and Brad SHEPPARD
ESS: Dyson HEPPELL, TBC, Adam SAAD, Cale HOOKER and Jake STRINGER
Match Stats Analysis (ranked by $/PPM)
I have no idea how Harrison JONES scored SO many SuperCoach points with those stats, but I thought he looked great for a 70kg future prospect. May even get a few games depending on when Stringer is back and whether they play Hooker front or back; showed real promise.
Bailey WILLIAMS (DEF/RUC) looked very good and according to one of our fave SCTers Matteo, he is pushing for the #2 ruck spot ahead of both Vardy and Hickey. Could well earn it, if he puts in another polished performance in MS2 for the Eagles.
Last year’s mid-season draft Will SNELLING continues to impress, but can’t help feeling he’s a trap given his role as a small FWD and his horrible starting price. Still, he delivered the numbers last season and the fact that he has that uncanny knack of ‘right place, right time’, I think we should watch him again in MS2.
Francis WATSON is another who impresses me and has been in my team as a placeholder for months (those who follow me on the Twitter will know that). I know he’s a bit of a cult hero with Eagles fans but have no idea about his JS. Is nicely priced if he gets a solid run.
There are plenty to watch in game2 for ESS. BerZerk and Townsend as cheapies and Devon SMITH as an ‘underpricer’ for a better steer on his role. He was permanent half-forward in the first half (yuk), before switching to both inside and outside in the second half (better).
I got burned by Jordan RIDLEY last year after his impressive JLT numbers duped me, so am not gonna mention him.
Oops, you just did
Yeah well, I think that’s all for now. What did everyone else think? Have I missed anybody (apart from Parish and McGrath)? Until Heppell plays, I’m not gonna have an informed opinion on either, so I’ll just say nothing.
