#1. Scott Pendlebury (v Essendon: 93, 124, 105, 136, 125; Form: 107, 126, 113) It’ll be once in a blue moon that Pendles doesn’t make this list. This is not one of those occasions. Pendles doesn’t mind stepping up on ANZAC Day, with his numbers emphatically suggesting he’s the number one captaincy choice this week: 124, 136, 140, 130, 130, 170, 167, 102. The least you could do is whack the VC on him, playing on Saturday arvo.
#2. Rory Sloane (v Western Bulldogs: 123, 102, 146, 97, 63, 90; Form: 140, 135, 145) The Sloane Ranger has jumped the barrier exceptionally well in 2015. The extent to which he has performed has probably surprised even those who were bullish about his prospects this year. As the number one player after three rounds, he’s already 35 points ahead of the 2nd placed Fyfe with a massive average of 139.67. Playing in the last match of the round against a Bulldog midfield that has seen many of it’s stars succumb to injury, he’s very unlucky to miss out on the #1 billing this week.
#3. Nat Fyfe (v Sydney: 109, 111, 92, 138, 43; Form: 107, 162, 112) Fyfe is always a good captain at the best of times, but especially when he’s playing in Perth. In the West he’s tonned up in the last 15 straight matches, with an average of 124 over that time. You just can’t argue with those stats! He’s now soared in popularity to be the most owned premium in the game. Playing on Saturday night he could be loopholed with Sloane if you’ve got a non-player on Sunday.
#4. Joel Selwood (v North Melbourne: 148, 113, 103, 140, 140; Form: 154, 110, 69) Sit back and marvel at that recent history against the Roos. Three scores in the 140 range is ridiculous. Playing on Sunday, he’s a likely candidate to bring it home for your side if Pendles or Fyfe don’t do the business for you. A 154 last week makes him a walk up start to the top 5 once again. Dear Joel, I’m sorry I dropped you from the top 5 last week. Yours sincerely, MJ.
#5. Dane Swan (v Essendon: 68, 143, 108, 127, 175; Form: 150, 99, 111) Anyone who has been playing SuperCoach for a while will know that Swanny loves playing ANZAC Day as much as he loves a session at the tattoo parlour. His last series of matches on ANZAC Day read: 143, 127, 180, 106, 78, 123, 125. I can distinctly remember his four goals last season, including a ridiculous snap on the run in the pocket at the Punt Road end. You’d easily take five of those seven scores as captain. Granted he’s still a risk, so I’d rather use the VC on him in case last weekend’s 150 was a complete anomaly.
Stepping out of the top 5: Josh P. Kennedy stunk up the joint with a 61 on the weekend, after sucking us in with a 127 and 130 in the two weeks prior. He’s unlikely to toss up another poor one for a while, but I can’t include him on that form. Jordan Lewis is stiff to be dropped, being the 5th best scorer in SuperCoach thus far, but the lure of a big one from Dane Swan was enough to snatch the #5 position.Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
