MJ’s Captaincy Candidates – R14

Written by MJ on July 2 2015

#1. Nat Fyfe (v. Brisbane: 143, 77, 34, 125, 117; Form: 138, 151, 116) There’s no point wasting too much effort with a Fyfe write-up anymore. If the Teenwolf ever succumbs to injury or suspension, chaos will ensue to a similar degree to that of the Greece debt debacle. Playing on the last game of the round, at home in a game the Dockers are heavy favourites, all we have to do now is search for a suitable VC! I would jump straight to the only other man to be averaging 130+ in his last five, Patrick Dangerfield, but it’ll only be half time in the Crows match before Fremantle v Brisbane gets underway! The same reason can be given for another in-form midfielder, Dayne Beams.

#2. Todd Goldstein (v. GC: 101, 117, 100, 107; Form: 150, 136, 128) Goldstein in ridiculous form across his last four games, averaging 137 points. He has the chance to beat up on Tom Nicholls this week (no offence to you Tommy, but Goldy is a boss!). With three scores above 150 this season, he could be the perfect VC that many overlook.

#3. Luke Parker (v Port: 78, 120, 60, 69, 108; Form: 130, 130, 125) His form is impeccable, as Parker shows his R1 buyers what they were looking for from the get-go. Without the best record against the Power, he’s only really come into the elite category recently, so read too much into it. He’s now delivered six beautiful captain scores in his last seven matches. Daniel Hannebery and Robbie Gray will also rival for VC honours in this one, but I’ve gone with the form guide.

#4. Dustin Martin (v GWS: 86, 134, 137, 99; Form: 62, 148, 144) His poor match last week will place Dusty as a POD VC choice for R14, as many will be quick to forget his double dose of 140s the fortnight prior. With a decent record against the Giants, I’ve got a gut feeling he’s in for another big one on Saturday. Brett Deledio should also be considered on the same merits, with 132 and 119 in his two games against the Giants last season and strong recent form.

#5. Nic Naitanui (v Melb: 104, 108, 76, 50, 64; Form: 146, 147, 79) It was a massive month of footy for Nic pre-bye, posting three scores above 140! There’s no harm at all whacking the VC on him Saturday night, as he is absolutely flying. Matt Priddis also has big claims for a strong performance v The Dees.

Also consider: Scott Pendlebury, while not in blistering form, he’ll need to stand up in a tough match against the Hawks.

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

  1. Dangerfield went 116, 130 and 188 in the 3 games without Sloane this season.
    Shame game overlaps with the Perma-C!


  2. I’ve gone Cal Ward into Fyfe. Besides a Pendlebury (who hasn’t been as dominant this year) or someone from last nights game (ship has already sailed and i had JPK) its the only other game I can effectively use the loophole for.

    Lets hope he turns it on!
