OK lets start with the blokes who are dragging the chain:
Tom Scully ($179,200, 42.00) – ok I admit this could be a little controversial considering he’s only ever played 2 games of league football but his peers are all averaging over 50 and he was the #1 draft pick! He costs more than any other rookie – when you pay that kind of coin you expect a better output.
Andrew Walker ($268,700, 54.50) – The #2 pick of 2003 (behind A Cooney) looked shredded in the pre-season after training away from the main group for disciplinary reasons but while Coon has won a Chas and is dominating, Walks is plodding along with a 54 average. Pull your finger out, Walks!! The Blues need you!!
Justin Sherman ($483,300, 57.00) – Motts talked the Sherminator up pre-season and I’m sure he’ll come good eventually. Maybe a bit of Motts shaming is what he needs to turn it around.
Dishonourable mentions: Luke Ball (you guys woulda been onto me if I hadn’t at least mentioned him), Chris Masten, Dom Cassisi, and Bernie Vince (I told you he’d start slow!)
And those that have picked it up and are running with it:
Michael Barlow ($111,400, 145.00) – no-one has a better average. I think its fair to say we’ve all developed a bit of Man Love for Mr Barlow.
Travis Boak ($439,700, 126.00) – yes there are blokes with better averages than him but nearly all of them are $100k dearer. Has started the year in scintillating form.
Patrick Dangerfield ($332,700, 95.50) – feeling a little dopey right now for picking Ziebell over him. Great average for a great price. Wonder if his numbers will be affected as injured players start coming back.
Special mentions must go out to Kane Cornes (as much as it irks me), The Coon, Jason Davenport, and Jordie McKenzie (who? Look him up!)
OK I’m sure I haven’t got a complete list. Let us all know who I’ve missed.
