Our thanks to SCT regular, Big Bad Bustling Barry Kraft for this match report from last night.

Power v Geelong – Friday, 4th March at AAMI Stadium

My handful that are worthy of consideration for super coachers.


1) Travis Boak (Midfield $471,300) – Clearly best on ground racking up 28 possies and will be cherry ripe come Round 1. Showed no signs of uninterupted pre-season, looks set for a big year.

2) Jackson Trengove (Defender/Ruck $255,800) – With Chaplin and Carlile taking the key forwards, young Jackson was able to gather 23 touches pulling in 8 marks to provide some spark of half back for Port.

The Rucking Dilemma

Written by Big Sexy on 6:00 am, March 2 2011

First off, I need to say my theory seems to be different to that of most when it comes to the Ruck Bench. I have always been an advocate of not putting too much cash in your ruck area…… in particular the bench. However, this season is different:
1. You now have a bye that will impact your R1 and R2 at some stage. So you need backup and can’t afford a zero.
2. You now have an extra bench spot for you Fwd, Mid and Back, but not your Ruck.
