Captaincy Candidates – Round 15

Written by Gunboat Diplomacy on June 22 2023

Vice-Captaincy Candidates


  • L3 v Cats: 91, 85, 146 (107 av.)
  • L3 @ GMHBA: 91, 85, 83 (86 av.)

Going to be a one man band again with Satan not getting up. Cats midfield alright to crash into right now, so he should be solid for 120.

DUNKLEY v Saints

  • L3 v Saints: 80, 131, 127 (113 av.)
  • L3 @ MRVL: 149, 108, 90 (116 av.)

Windhager goes to him or Neale but his experience at Marvel, form and early game mean he’s still a decent candidate this week. Goes 130 if left alone against a struggling Saints side.

GULDEN v Eagles

  • L3 v Eagles: 84, 90 (87 av.)
  • L3 @ SCG: 62, 93, 156 (104 av.)

Had a quiet month but he and the Swans should relish a soft kill in the Eagles. Comfortably tons with obvious scope to go large.

Captaincy Candidates


  • L3 v Dons: 77, 73 (75 av.)
  • L3 @ OS: 108, 135, 105 (116 av.)

His numbers weren’t actually that bad last week – just dragged down but heinous DE. The Dons are by no means a good midfield match-up but it’s ride or die for Freo at the moment. Fires on all cylinders for 125. Same deal for Zerrett despite being away from home.

LAIRD v Pies

  • L3 v Pies: 100, 154, 144 (133 av.)
  • L3 @ MCG: 105, 98, 84 (96 av.)

Much prefer him and Dawson at home but it’s slim pickings this week and the Pies are not the same side Baird used to beat up on but it should be a high stoppage, heavily contested affair. On for 120.


  • L3 v Pies: 150, 92, 99 (114 av.)
  • L3 @ MCG: 99, 112, 104 (105 av.)

Hasn’t had a C worthy score in a while but, again, there isn’t much on offer. Dawson a true flyer this week as the Pies at the G is a true inversion of his preferred low stakes at AO. Purely a call on him rising to the occasion to go 130.

Steer Clear

DAICOS v Crows

  • L3 v Crows: 72, 163, 53 (96 av.)
  • L3 @ MCG: 118, 100, 125 (114 av.)

The Crows took the Pies to the edge in Round 7, in part due to a tag on Daicos. Keays got the job last time. Can see Crows pressure boxing him into a flat-ton either way.

Smoky Pick


  • L3 v Hawks: 93, 78, 79 (83 av.)
  • L3 @ HBS: 189, 89, 71 (116 av.)

Should relish a return to Metricon after 5 weeks on the road. Hawks like to open things up. Anderson solid for 115+ if you’re in need of a late fall back.


  • Round 1: Green 132
  • Round 2: Baird 147
  • Round 3: Satan 156
  • Round 4: Tingles 145
  • Round 5: Tingles 137
  • Round 6: Miller 40
  • Round 7: Satan 134
  • Round 8: Satan 136
  • Round 9: Tingles 88
  • Round 10: RoMo 126
  • Round 11: Baird 115
  • Round 12: Daicos 123
  • Round 13: Daicos 118
  • Round 14: Dunkley 137


Think I’ll still sweat Dunkley into the Saints and Windhager just given the upside he has at Marvel. Laird then penciled in as C, with Gulden as a dice roll if I want to spice up the weekend.

  1. Always a must read GD thanks for all your hard work.

    Going with Stewart tonight coz he should see a lot of it hopefully into the reliable Laird.

    So long bye rounds you shan’t be missed


    1. Yeah, I just didn’t like how much economy Duncan took off him last week.

      Playing at home might help him overcome that. Gooduck, FBS.


    1. Eh, some good numbers against them but that was in a solo/75:25 split. Playing with Grundy has cooked his ceiling.

      I wouldn’t bother.


  2. I really want to put the VC on my new recruit Petracca but I believe that with Oliver out and Stanley back in that it will mean Blicavs will not be required to ruck and so will probably be assigned to Petracca.

    Therefore the VC is going on Brayshaw. The C will go on someone from the Coll v Adel game. Not sure if it will be Laird/Dawson since I also have as another new recruit T.Mitchell. who should get more time in the guts with DeGooey still suspended.


    1. They usually delete these posts, but they have filters for words that come up as spam. I’ve tried typing out sentences using Tan-ner and Plan-ner (without the hyphen) but it wouldn’t post due to it coming up as spam.


  3. Gday,
    If I want to take petracca’ vc score can I just put the captain straight on a bye player like English or do u I need to do it the traditional way by subbing Marshall off and captaining madden
