MACRAE v Port
- L3 v Port: 142, 147, 51 (113 av.)
- L3 @ AO: 142, 177, 51 (123 av.)
While Port really restricted opposition MIDs last week, Macrae’s got a tremendous record down in Adelaide. Dunkley’s return might clip his ceiling, but he’ll still be solid for 125.
NEALE v Tigers
- L3 v Tigers: 190, 123, 129 (147 av.)
- L3 @ MS: 157, 152, 142 (150 av.)
The Tigers’ leak some juicy MID scores to their opposition even when giving them a pounding; it was 162 from Macrae last week and 140 at a minimum from Neale this week.
MARTIN v Lions
- L3 v Lions: 108, 141, 54 (101 av.)
- L3 @ MS: 184, 100, 78 (121 av.)
“Where the hell did that come from?!?” I said to myself after Dusty cleaned the Dogs up with a 184 last round. He stands and delivers when the Tigers need him and his services will again be required in a critical prime time clash against the Lions. Solid for 120 with a high ceiling.
GAWN v Crows
- L3 v Crows: 158, 130, 114 (134 av.)
- L3 @ AO: 140, 130, 151 (140 av.)
Gawn’s 40 hitouts last round shockingly didn’t translate into a monster SC score on account of the fact that the circle of fools (aka Dees MIDs) didn’t bother to get onto the end of his work. Expect the Dees to be more attune to his service as he strikes back with 135.
GRUNDY v Swans
- L3 v Swans: 165, 167, 105 (146 av.)
- L3 @ G: 100, 110, 114 (108 av.)
Been in poor form and looks a touch sluggish and underdone, but the weakness of Sydney’s ruck stocks makes Grundy a lock for 120 this week.
STEELE v Suns
- L3 v Saints: 115, 96, 62 (91 av.)
- L3 @ MS: 87, 96, 75 (86 av.)
Steele has taken his game to a whole other level this year, continuing to relentlessly tackle and adding elite ball use and meters gained. With cracks starting to show at the Suns, you can back the man of Steele in for 130.
BONTEMPELLI v Port
- L3 v Port: 130, 98, 129 (119 av.)
- L3 @ AO: 130, 129, 120 (126 av.)
Pains me as an owner to caution people against him, but Bont’s last month in the Queensland hub has been uninspiring: averaging only 101, spending more time FWD and attending less CBAs. With Dunkley returning, expect a low-ton.
PETRACCA v Crows
- L3 v Crows: 71, 88, 81 (80 av.)
- L3 @ AO: 62, 88, 121 (90 av.)
Despite the Dees hapless effort last round, Petracca’s role still remains conducive to big SC scoring: team high CBAs, hard ball gets and contested possessions – all the tools needed to engineer a 130~ against a weak opponent in the Crows this week.
Worried Dunkley’s return might result in an awkward VC score for Macrae, so it’s looking like Neale into Gawn for me. Although, Macrae may re-enter my calculations depending on my mood later tonight lol.
