The last line of the team at first glance…….the forward line…….or as it will be known in 2019: Danger-Plus-Five 😉
Patrick Dangerfield (GEE) $661k – Is the obvious #1 choice for the FWD line. Will be in every team but for good reason. Had an ‘ordinary’ season in 2018 and still avgd 121. A proven uber-elite who was already covered extensively by Thommo during his 12 Days Of Christmas series.
Tom Lynch (RIC) $426k – Perhaps I’m just an excited Tigers fan but surely Lynch will see an increase in his SC-output this season? He should see some better delivery of the ball and more importantly, more often! Whether it’s enough to crack the Top10 FWDs is another question. (Very excited to see how he goes in the yellow ‘n black!) 😉
Luke Dahlhaus (GEE) $418k – He’s been a regular pick up forward in Supercoach for the last couple of seasons and I’m still quite flummaxed as to why he needed to leave the Bulldogs. His spot in the midfield seemed to be taken over by the likes of Dunkley and McLean maybe? Still just 26 years of age so there is still plenty to offer his new team. Perhaps a change of luck will come with a change of team. Would be nice to see him rotating through the middle with Ablett. Averaged 91, 96, 104 & 91 between 2014 & 2017.
Rory Lobb (FRE) $412k – He was in many Coaches’ calculations this time last year before injuring his knee during the pre-season. With Sandi getting on, he’s sure to see plenty of ruck time and improve on his 75avg. Very handy acquisition with the duso.
JJK (WCE) $398k – Had little luck with injury last year. Still the #1 target at the Eagles and they constantly look for him when moving forward. You can be sure the Eagles will have some big wins against some of the weaker teams at Home. His numbers will improve sharply if his body is right.
Toby Greene (GWS) $355k – Top6 FWD if his body is right. Will be a popular choice.
And how does your Danger-Plus-Five-Line look at this stage? Do you agree with my initial observations?
Thank you for reading through my First Glance series! Tomorrow we start with our Team Previews for 2019……enjoy!
