For the multitude of coaches who placed the VC on the safe shoulders of Nat Fyfe, the captain decision will not be a dilemma and you can rest easy going into the weekend.
For the rest, we’ll check out some of the best picks to rival Fyfe’s bumper tally this week:
#1. Patrick Dangerfield (v Bris: 87, 107, 134, 67, 44; Form: 106, 130, 188) Patty’s dropped just two scores under 100 this year and that monstrous 188 from R9 is still fresh in our memories. With the punters expecting a comfortable win for the Crows on Saturday, he should bob up with a handsome showing.
#2. Dan Hannebery (v Rich: 154, 87, 78, 89, 80; Form: 98, 126, 96) In what has been a breakout season for the 24-year-old, Hannebery has become the 4th best averaging player of those to play more than half a dozen games. His last match against the Tigers yielded a whopping 154 points, in the narrow three-point loss in R23. He racked up 33 touches and 10 tackles.
#3. Dayne Beams (v Adel: 159, 104, 88, 175, 99; Form: 105, 127, 144) As you can see, Beams played some quality matches in the Black and White against the Crows, scoring 159 in his last outing. Only Fyfe, Dangerfield and Naitanui have averaged more points in their last five games than Beams.
#4. David Armitage (v Western Bulldogs: 134, 90, 75, 119, 81; Form: 79, 101, 134) He put in just his 2nd sub-100 score for the year last week, but that’s not deterring my thoughts on his validity for R13. A serious bout of leather poisoning in R6 in the Saints’ remarkable come from behind victory v. the Dogs saw Armitage gather 45 disposals that day.
#5. Luke Parker (v Rich: 117, 121, 70, 50, 22; Form: 130, 125, 59) In his last six games, Parker has belted out five very respectable captain scores above 118. That’s definitely enough to be able to throw the VC/C on him tonight, as he seems to have shaken that slow start to the year now.Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
