The Run Home – Part TWO

Written by Schwarzwalder on August 9 2018

Over the last three weeks of the Supercoach season, it’s worth an effort to look at the remaining fixtures.  If you need to bring in an extra player or two, it can be worth the gamble if your new recruit is playing a couple of lower-ladder sides.

So which clubs have an easy run home?  Which players could be the difference between a Premiership Cup & a Runners-Up Ribbon?  Let’s look at the next six clubs (in alphabetical order):

 

GEELONG: HAW (A), FRE (H), GCS (H)

Looking at their last two games in particular at Kardinia Park, one or two Cats midfielders look essential to winning a Premiership in your League matches.  Most of us already have Dangerfield so I’d be looking to get Joel Selwood or Mitch Duncan (maybe even Menegola) into the team at a bit of value.  Each has a high ceiling and could be a masssive POD in the weeks to come.

 

GOLD COAST: RIC (H), BRL (H), GEE (A)

The Q-Clash looks to be the  Suns’ last shot at a victory for 2018.  Not many of the Suns players have hit the century lately, so it’s really hard to recommend any of them over the last three weeks of Supercoach.

 

GWS: ADE (H), SYD (H), MEL (A)

In great form of late but they come up against some fellow Finals contenders shortly, won’t be easy.  After his double-century last week, Josh Kelly is the form player you need to get on.  Could Toby Greene find some form again before Finals?

 

HAWTHORN: GEE (H), STK (A), SYD (A)

After a reasonably favorable draw after the Bye Rounds, the Hawks have a couple tricky match-ups if they are to cement their spot in the Top8.  No surprise to see Tom Mitchell as the recommendation here, highest Supercoach scorer for the year.  Just continues to rack up the disposals…….

 

MELBOURNE: SYD (H), WCE (A), GWS (H)

While the Dees are a capable side, they still have an uphill battle if they are to play Finals this year.  No easy games over the last three weeks, and I’m extremely curious to see how the season finishes for Melbourne.  Angus Brayshaw is finishing the season well and should break the ton a few more times…..

 

NORTH: WBD (H), ADE (A), STK (A)

If they’re good enough, the Kangas can take out all three of their opponents on the way to a Finals berth.  Ben Cunnington has a knack of finding the contested ball and could be a decent POD over the last three (winnable) games.

 

How do you see it, Coaches?  Do you agree with my assessment of these six clubs?  Anyone you’re looking at trading in on the strength of their late fixture?

  1. Thinking not Grundy vs 3 name ruckman yes he will still score well thinking Goldstein with no competition all the way home cheaper and shouldn’t give up too many to grundy
