  1. Heeney has received an ankle injury 30 seconds into the game. May not play any further part for precautionary reasons.


  2. Mills not starting in the midfield… are we thinking he may not be a mid in the regular season or is this just JLT experimentation?


    1. I wonder if it has anything to do with Lloyd out for the game? Still getting the ball though with 8 disposals and 4 contested


  3. On the thought of Mills, I’ve been at Ryan Clarke. He has come from North and is a 355K defender. I have seen him standing on outside of the centre square and i have seen him around the contest in the forward line. He seems to be playing more of the wing. With about 5 minutes left in the 2nd he is sitting on top for AF points with 13 possessions and 5 tackles.

    I also have to add Papley is getting a number of centre bounce appearances, so i am wondering if Mills is not going to get the midfield time


    1. He had a good game against GWS when Sydney got flogged, but in their first game against GWS he barely made his breakeven. At this stage I cannot see him being worth the risk. If he confirms his success, then maybe as an upgrade target.

      But there are enough Midprice Defenders worth a look already. Williams, Smith, Houli, Roberton just for example that I cannot see Mills being a worthwhile risk. He’s also above all of their scores, and all of them have previous history at higher averages than Mills has ever achieved in his AFL career.


  4. Collins stats are quite ordinary and he’s not picking up many AFL fantasy points (though I don’t think intercept defenders score that well in fantasy)

    Will be interesting what he scores in SC, been really surprised how high his ownership is with that elevated price tag


    1. Well, he was in the 90’s in the last match. But you also need to consider job security.

      He’s one of the few rookie defenders you can be confident will actually be on the field for round 1.

      You can’t be certain of that with Clark, Scrimshaw, Hore, Duursma, McKay etc.

      Sometimes you have to pay a bit extra for that security.


  5. Heeney is off for the last quarter with ice on his ankle. Considering he still played 3 quarters, I assume there is nothing serious about this.


          1. Remember, “Rookies availability determines your team structure”. Everyone will be in the same boat so the choice of mid pricers could make or break you.

    1. Cannot wear a tag either.

      He’s also been out a long time. Could potentially be cheap, at his prime he was a pretty good player and he’s far from “too old” yet.

      It’d be what we call here a “ballsy pick” but it could well pay off.

      So where are this year’s “ballsy picks”?
