  1. Would love for McKay to do enough to hold his spot so he becomes an okay bench option. If drew can do enough to warrant an onfield start it would make me quite happy


  2. Im going to take it that Goldy as an emergency means they only want to play 1 ruck and not the dual ruck setup. Last week they played both but only 1 was on the field at a time. Surely a long shot, but if Goldy has a bad game, Campbell could take over his spot as the #1 ruck which would be a nightmare


  3. For sure Bailey Scott will be worth considering for M10 or M11 as Leigh Tudor said before the game that he is likely to line up for the Roos Round 1.


  4. 14 goals total in the first quarter and North only laid four tackles. Hmmm not sure we can take much away from this game so far…


  5. Campbell being dominated in the ruck winning 4 hitouts vs Port’s 15. He is alternating with Larkey but Larkey is only going to be on for 15-20% of the match. Not going to sit a ruck forward


  6. Rockliff looking enticing for some of you. 11 possies, 2 goals, 3 marks at 82% efficiency. He has done nothing to us coaches right???????


    1. This is JLT, and North’s defence is non existant. Dont get carried away. Remember what happened last week when Rocky faced a good side??


  7. I said here in a thread a while back that Gray should be a good choice as surely he’s chucked back in the midfield after losing so much depth there in the off-season.

    Well I was wrong on that front, but my thinking was on the right track, as it would seem Boak is back as a full-time mid. Could he be an option for that pesky F3 spot? Will comfortably average 90-95 if he does play pure mid.


    1. Boaks is playing more as a mid in the JLT and with Polec and Wingard having left the team so they need more mids, so the rookies are coming in but he is experience. Wines is currently out with injury expected to return after 1-2 rounds.
      Boak has 18 disposals, 6 marks, 2 clearances and 7 inside 50’s at half time. He had 81 points last week and only missed 3 games in 6 seasons he isn’t a bad chance. If he could get into his 2013-15 form of averages of 99+ he’d be great. However in the last 3 years he’s averaged under 91.5.


      1. Boak? You have to see his ceiling. I had him last year and even though he is consistant, he wont offer much more. Had only one ton after the byes. I will wait until he has one or 2 bad games and pick him up knowing you’ll get around 80 each week..


        1. Boak played forward last year though. I actually considered Boak a few weeks ago when it was said he will be playing more midfield. Glad to see im not the only one i whos mentioned him i thought i was crazy!

          Still couldn’t bring myself to start him but his an option to consider.


          1. I haven’t considered him at all until actually seeing this game. I don’t want to change my line-up all because of a single JLT game. Plus, i don’t think he has had the best SC score or made an impact in the 3rd


      1. sorry – my bad – for some reason I saw Rocky … and then confused the posts with him and Gray / Boak!! – site wont allow deletion for some reason or edit function doesn’t work …


        1. I’ve found a work-around for those having trouble with editing/deleting comments, if you right click on the either “edit” or “delete” and then open them in a new tab, they work fine. Odd that it doesn’t work as normal right now, but it’s a work-around in the meantime.


  8. For the rookies i am concerned about Duursma’s Rd 1 chances as he is only getting about 55% game time whereas the rookies of Rozee, Butters, Drew are getting 75%+. Of those rookies he has very similar stats on less time. 8 possies, 7 are kicks, 3 marks and then some little extras like R50 and I50


  9. Uh-Oh! A little pig that has all but been forgotten has poked his little head up and said….”Remember Me?”


  10. How many people are going to jump on the Rocky Bandwagon? He came in with a lazy 42 disposals, with 30 being kicks but only 11 contested. 17 marks, 9 clearances and 6 center clearances! Then 2 goals, only real downside is the 1 tackle and lack of contested possession.

    Many will be jumping on it for sure at 184 Fantasy points (unsure on SC at this stage)


    1. He came in with 170 SC points after having a disposal and mark taken off him.

      For centre bounces attended the top 3 were, SPP with 23, Rockliff 22 and Boak 18. This shows that Boak is a fair chance to play as a midfielder this year and move out from the forward line.

      1. Great performance from Rocky and also today was his highest TOG% for Port Adelaide (87% TOG) with a previous high of 80%.

        I’m not considering him for classic but ecstatic that I managed to select him in our recent SCT Supercoach Draft at Pick 156 for my 4th spot in the midfield.


  11. At $441,200 Lycett’s not looking like a bad option, especially if you want swinging cover.


    1. Only problem is that he possess one of the worst HTA rates in the competition.

      In the past 4 seasons he has played 49 matches for 949 hitouts with 237 to advantage for a HTA of 24.97%.


      1. Hmm… assuming his role is what it was today (i.e. first ruck, with support from Ryder), what do you think he could average?

    1. B Scott $117k could be worth a mid bench spot.

      Duursma may need a tall to go down before he gets a serious run at it.

      Lets see who turns up R1.
