Motts Movers R6 – The Forwards

Written by Motts on May 3 2010

Bit of a change up this week. Firstly I’m going to highlight the performances of players that haven’t yet played 3 games because I figure you want to know about them BEFORE their price changes. Secondly, lets celebrate the good before we rubbish the mediocre.

So lets kick it off with the great forward efforts from R6:

C Dawes ($260,300, 82.50) – Has only played 2 games so far but from what I saw of him against my boys at the G yesterday he’s going to be a handful for a lot of sides. If he could kick as straight as Jack Anthony, Anthony would never get another game. Had a 76 against us and an 89 against Essendon the week before. Don’t say I didn’t tell you about him.

T Varcoe ($370,400, 108.00) – Has only played the one game so far but racked up a ton in it. Gave a hell of a lot of scoring assists before finally kicking his own goal late in the game. Admittedly he played Richmond so his score is likely to look a little inflated but if he can keep that kind of scoring up you’d have to consider him.

D Bradshaw ($486,900, $+49,600 ($+71,200), 95.00) – Was there anyone else out there that was hoping he’d go to town on Brisbane on Saturday night? Has kicked 6,6, and 4 goals over the last 3 weeks to give him an average of 126 over that period. Seems to be fitting in quite nicely into the Swannies forward line. Back after R3 you could’ve gotten on him for $390k.

At the other end of the spectrum were these blokes:

J Roughead ($350,700, $-31,800 ($-70,900), 69.67) – Kicked 11 goals in the first 3 games and tickled 100 in R2 against Geelong with a 97 but since then has gone AWOL – no goals against the Dons and only 1 in each of the 2 games prior to that. Must be traded out now.

C Rioli ($386,500, $-43,900 ($-31,200), 76.20) – Why have you forsaken us, Cyril? So many showed faith by trading him in in R3 after a spectacular 4 goal, 140 point effort against the Dogs to see him score 77, 35 and 47 since then. If his groin is a problem can someone please give it a massage? 54,849 coaches would very much appreciate it.

L Davis ($439,300, $-43,300 ($-152,400), 74.17) – The problem with this guy was illustrated to all and sundry yesterday at the G. He snaffled the ball from a pack about 35 out from goal on a slight angle. Without another thought he turned blind and put it on the boot…only for it to sail across the face and go out on the full. ‘His radar’s off” said Grimmo sitting next to me. It sure is. Hasn’t kicked a goal over the last 2 weeks.

Feel free to add to either list.

  2. Every man and he’s dog was bagging Hargrave last week then he comes out and scores a 96, this week every wants him in their side. The same thing will happen to Murphs mark my words, he is too good of a player to be is such poor form, he’ll be notching up 100’s in no time.

  4. Anyone think Tippett may be a good option now at 280K.
    They have Richmond this week at AAMI and his goal kicking seems to have improved in the last couple of games.

  6. Just reed the HS article about Ottens, but there could bad some bad news for all you GAJ owners out there.

    thompson also said that star Gary Ablett was no certainty to play this Sunday against the Swans at Skilled Stadium after missing last week with hamstring soreness.

    He also said that Ablett fronted the leadership group to explain why he was out late at the Logies on Sunday night.

  7. Here is the report from the Geelong Advertiser. It has a different slant to the HS article.

    “Thompson also said that star Gary Ablett was likely, but no certainty, to play this Sunday against the Swans at Skilled Stadium after missing last week with hamstring soreness.
    Full back Matthew Scarlett must also complete the team’s main training session this week before being cleared to return from a back injury.
    He also said that Ablett explained to the leadership group why he was out late at the Logies on Sunday night.”

  9. Considering trading Seaby to Mumford who averages a respectable 75 and will be given more responsibility now. I’ve always liked the idea of my second ruck being a Swan. Hmmm…..

  12. Roberton didn’t look convincing and will struggle to get a regular game imo. Matty Knights hinted that Howlett will return this week after smashing ’em in the VFL.
