BRAYSHAW v Roos
- L3 v Roos: 75, 86, 112 (91 av.)
- L3 @ OS: 104, 95, 96 (98 av.)
The Roos in Perth doesn’t require much commentary. Brayshaw a 135+ with ease.
MILLER v Swans
- L3 v Swans: 148, 146, 102 (132 av.)
- L3 @ SCG: 153, 102, 62 (105 av.)
After a poor month of SC scores, Miller returned to Top 8 royalty with a 160 against the Pies; 36 touches, 17 contested, 6 tackles, 10 clearances and a goal. Hit 140s against the Swans in both outings last season, should be solid for another 140.
NEALE v Eagles
- L3 v Eagles: 133, 166, 127 (142 av.)
- L3 @ G: 117, 105, 140 (121 av.)
Absolutely electric last week (and of course I took the C off him and gave it to Macrae last minute) with nearly another double ton and 26/37 contested. Eagles come as cruisy midfield match-up with Neale should savage for 150. There’s the off chance we give him some attention with O’Neil or another one of the kids, but should still be serviceable.
SATAN v Saints
- L3 v Saints: 133, 134, 108 (125 av.)
- L3 @ MCG: 119, 168, 118 (135 av.)
Tailed off from what looked like a 160 trajectory last week but still in excellent form. Great match-up stats, a lock for 130.
GAWN v Saints
- L3 v Saints: 137, 135, 126 (132 av.)
- L3 @ MCG: 172, 123, 130 (142 av.)
Even with the potential of RoMo returning to aid Ryder, Maxxy’s accumulating and score involvement capacity outside of the HO contest is quite simply on another level. 125 at a minimum as the Dees give the Saints a dose of reality.
CRIPPS v Crows
- L3 v Crows: 65, 98, 152 (105 av.)
- L3 @ MRVL: 138, 162, 57 (119 av.)
Cripps was raring to go last week and didn’t miss a beat with 35 touches, 18 contested and 3 shots at goal. Should have no problem putting the screws to the Crows at home for 130.
PARISH v Hawks
- L3 v Hawks: 115, 99, 91 (102 av.)
- L3 @ MRVL: 111, 113, 121 (115 av.)
A propensity to handball over kicking, a forward line that presents poorly and the Dons non-damaging over-using playstyle has really inhibited his ceiling. Hawks also deploying defensive attention where necessary. Probably another low-ton.
SHORT v Pies
- L3 v Pies: 129, 78, 91 (99 av.)
- L3 @ MCG: 111, 111, 136 (119 av.)
A move to the midfield out of nowhere last week saw Short pump a 152, albeit against poor/non-existent opposition. Short retained his penchant for long kicks even on ball, resulting in nearly 800 MG, 80% DE and 27 kicks to 4 HBs – which more than make up for his CP deficiencies. Assuming he stays OB he’ll not only be a must have DEF but potentially worth a look against the Pies this weekend – another side without a #1 ruck that leak MID points. 130+ on the cards.
It’ll be Brayshaw into Neale on my end. However for those still with Owens (STK) languishing at M11, the ideal set up this week would be Neale VC into any of the Sunday options.
