Robbie Gray (v Haw: 107, 118, 83, 63, 64; Form: 131, 90, 113) Since missing a game in R4, this man has kicked at least one goal in every match. He’s an undoubted gun and if anyone is to give the Power a chance at toppling the Premiership favourites, it’s this man. He’s worth a shout for your Friday night VC.
If you decide to go with Hodge, just be aware that he’s only averaged 81 in his last 7 against the men in teal.
Dane Swan (v Rich: 130, 116, 168, 100, 163; Form: 127, 168, 116) We’ve been seeing the Dane Swan of old in recent weeks, with 41 and 39 touches in his last two to go with a handful of goals. There’s no harm at all slapping the VC on him and seeing how he goes. A healthy record v Richmond is also a significant plus.
Pendlebury, Deledio, Martin, Kennedy, Hannebery, and even the in-form Heath Shaw are all competing for captain responsibilities in this time slot. They’re all averaging at least 107.
Patrick Dangerfield (v Bris: 114, 87, 107, 134, 67; Form: 157, 145, 73) He’s got to come under consideration for a VC nomination against the Lions. With massive efforts of 157 and 145 in the last fortnight, the Dangerman is in some seriously hot form.
Sloane pushed out a 145 and 124 in his last two efforts, while Sauce Jacobs has hit 140 twice in a row and has inked a fresh contract until 2019. Rockliff and Selwood could be good PODs over the higher averaging Dangerfield, with three round averages of 131 and 143 respectively.
Nat Fyfe (v North: 128, 134, 131, 94, 120; Form: 119, 128, 92) You were expecting to see big Goldstein here weren’t you? Well, instead I’m going with Fyfe as the best Sunday option. Why? Goldy has struggled against Sandilands in the past (44, 69 and 27 in three of his last four) with hitouts not coming as easily. Young Nat on the other hand, has a terrific form guide against the Roos and I’ll back him yet again here for the big C. This could be the split decision that either wins/loses you place in a Grand Final.
