#1 Gary Ablett (v St. Kilda: 184, 90, 178, 64, 143) Why waste my breath on the Little Master this week? He’s playing the Saints, whom many regard, the weakest team in the competition. Not only that, but GAJ often goes massive against them. The Suns will be desperate to make amends after their loss to the Dees last week. He’s had his warm-up and still strolled to 119 points.
#2 Scott Pendlebury (v Adelaide: 110, 128, 153, 118, 124) Scotty P very rarely has a bad game against the Crows. Then again, he very rarely has a bad game against anyone. 113 last week might have been underwhelming for the lofty price tag, but I’d expect a 120+ from him this week and he’ll be getting my VC on Saturday.
#3 Nat Fyfe (v Geelong: 118, 104, 68, 109, 49) Witnessing how well Jordan Lewis did against the Cats last week gives Fyfe every chance of replicating that 154 point performance. I’ll back him in as skipper if Pendlebury fails to deliver on Saturday.
#4 Joel Selwood (v Fremantle: 128, 140, 54, 116, 110) There’s no Creepy Crowley for the men in purple anymore. Selwood will want to stand up for the sub-par 21-disposal game that included just 6 kicks in their thumping to the hands of Hawthorn. It’s no secret that he loves playing football at Kardinia Park, dropping under 100 just three times in THIRTY games!
#5 Adam Treloar (v Melbourne: 94, 176, 98, 106, 99) This young kid has played just the five games against the Dees in his career for a low of 94 and high of 176. Coming off a ridiculous 157 last week, I wouldn’t hesitate sapping the VC on him this week if you’re clever enough to have picked him, as he plays on Saturday afternoon. He’s a true underground option that could pay off handsomely.
Dropped from the top 5: Tom Rockliff (Rib/Lung) – All the best for your recovery Tom. Loved your work on AFL360 the other day as well – a true champion indeed.
Consider: Matt Priddis for VC on Friday night. He’s scored 119, 104, 131 & 120 in his last four against the Blues. Rory Sloane and Jordan Lewis are both coming off monster games, but didn’t play well against their upcoming opposition in their latest match with 78 and 68 respectively in 2014. Patrick Dangerfield did well against the Pies last year with a 117 and 152. A strong alternative to Pendles, but it’s tough to snatch the mantle off Dependlebury.Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
