Motts Movers R2 – The Forwards

Written by Motts on April 9 2010

Rounding out this week’s edition of the Movers is the frontline. First up are the fellas who have had their colours lowered over the last fortnight.

Kurt Tippett ($425,900, 39.50) – Kurt was unceremoniously dumped from The Maulers this morning after his appalling start to the season. Word from the club is that he has knee tendonitis. Why didn’t I hear about this in the preseason when I drafted him in? Should be a super player one day but just doesn’t seem ready yet.

Brendan Fevola ($495,700, 51.00) – We knew it would take time for Fev to settle into the forward structure at Brisbane but while Jono has gone about business as usual, Fev has managed only 3 goals in both games he’s played and not much more.

Brent Harvey ($499,300, 60.50) – Its tough putting Boomer in here because he’s only played one bad game (last week’s output of 11 against the Saints) but when you’ve only got 2 weeks to work off, thems the breaks. Have no doubt: he’ll bounce back and the only time you’ll see him mentioned in this column from now on will be on the other side of the ledger.

Dishonourable mentions: Barry Hall, Mark Williams, Warren Tredrea and Travis Cloke.

And the blokes you’d love to have in your team right now (if you didn’t already have them):

Nick Riewoldt ($600,500, 163.50) – I try to only highlight the extraordinary performances in these posts and we’ve come to expect those from Roo but a 163 average is beyond expectations even for him. Can you imagine the Saints in the Top 4 without him? Me neither.

Jonathon Brown ($525,400, 150.50) – Had his Maulers guernsey presentation dinner last night where a lot of fun was had by all. As Aker said on The Footy Show last night: he’s in a good place at the moment with a wife and a young child and its showing in his footy. You know you’re doing alright when they’re comparing you to one of the greatest players of all time, Wayne Carey.

Ryan Houlihan ($419,300, 109.50) – Gotta give props to Houla and to a lesser extent his brother –in-exile, Eddie Betts (happy 100th game this week, Eddie!). He’s always delivered it on a dime so he’s a very good SC player to have because his efficiency is right up there. I’m just hoping for the sake of the Blues that he kicks a few for us along the journey which so far he hasn’t done.

Other honourable mentions: Ryan O’Keefe, Brett Ebert, Robert Murphy, and Luke McPharlin.

Who else in the forward lines has inspired emotions (either positive or negative) in you these last 2 weeks?

  1. Patty Dangerfield deserves a mention as he has been the Crows only shining light in the past couple of weeks (Did you see those contested marks against C. Bolton on the weekend?). I have finally lost patience with Robbie Gray and used a trade I didnt want to, but with Dangerfield set for a healthy price rise I just couldnt resist. Free’s up some cash in the bank which will allow me to get one C. Judd in the weeks to come.

    Tippett > Brown
    Clark > Seaby??

  3. Who would people play as their 7th back: Maguire, Waters, or Silvagni? They all seem to be doing well at the minute, makes it a tough pick. Thoughts.

  4. what is tippett expected to drop by if he gets another sub 50 point score?

    i’m backing him at this moment, but if he’s going to free-fall i may reconsider.

  5. Abit off the topic but what do you guys think Pods will score this weekend?
    Would it be wise to put him on the ground instead of LeCras or Medhurst..?

  6. Pending any last minute injury news my trades are all but done…
    Clark > Seaby
    Tippett > Brown
    Pretty popular one I think, but I’ve thought about it for a while and have finally made the decision: leaves me with a handy ~ $115 000 in the bank.
    18 trades remaining. When Gray returns, the forward line looks very potent:
    Riewoldt, O’Keefe, Brown, Franklin, Gray, Hall, Medhurst
    subs: Hitchcock, Gumbleton
    happy with that!

  8. I’ve done my trades. Tippett > Seaby; Hall > Ballantyne.
    $241k in the bank and my Gablett acquisition plans are going a lot faster than Guy McKenna’s.
