TrooRoo has asked whether Angus Brayshaw now enters our calculations as an M8 option. All the evidence right now points to Gus reclaiming an inside MID role: in rounds 10, 11 and 12 he notched up either second or team high CBAs with 15, 19 and 19 translating into scores of 91, 113 and 131 respectively.
While these numbers are undoubtedly appealing, consider the following variables:
1) Will the idiot savant Goodwin keep him on the ball?
2) Brayshaw only played inside and popped off against three of the leagues weakest teams right now in Adelaide, North Melbourne and Collingwood. Was he just feasting on the dominance of the Dees and the SC points that followed?
3) Does a returning Max Gawn perhaps have greater synergy with the trio of Satan Oliver, Petracca and Viney?
4) Might it be more prudent to cap off your MID line with Fyfe or a discounted Eagle instead? Or is coin king at the moment with the dried of river of cash generation?
Consider these questions and tell us, coaches:
