As requested by Yiorgiakis…………
There’s no denying it, the Byrnes boys are going to be very popular in trading this week. With the job security of Tom Ruggles shaking like a polaroid picture, the Byrneseses (I was saying Boo-urns) seem like safe downgrade options.
Darcy Byrne-Jones (PTA, $123 900): 61 & 97 SC pts in his first two appearances. 21 disposals and a goal on Sunday against the Giants from 80% Time On Ground. His spot looks fairly secure in this under-performing Port line-up. Break Even of -85, projected BEs of -60 & -6. Next five opponents: GEE, RICH, BRL, CARL, WCE.
Ciaran Byrne (CARL, $123 900): 67 & 67 SC pts from his first two games in 2016. Collected fifteen touches (ten contested) but had seven clangers against the Dogs on Saturday night. Had his face rearranged during the 3rd qtr but came back on to finish the game. I see no reason why he wouldn’t get a regular game at the Blues over the next 3-4 weeks (at least). BE of -61, projected BEs of -12 & 24. Next five opponents: FREO, ESS, COLL, PORT, NTH.
Can we afford a double downgrade this week? With all the latest injuries and suspensions? Or do we have to split the two? Let us know in the poll & comments below………..
