CoachKings Preview: Collingwood v Western Bulldogs
Another Coachkings season has begun community and some of the rules have changed
..good news for me because I struggled last year although I had a hell of a lot of fun playing.
This year we have more cash to splash, more players to rotate and best of all a schmick new scoring system which will balance out midfielders and the tall timber at both ends of the ground.
For more details we’ve got the CoachKings season guide here.
I recommend you give it the once over because if you don’t (like me last year) you’ll struggle to win all the cash that’s up for grabs.
My Mrs. actually beat me in all the preseason play at home games just by picking blokes with funny last names.. I would recommend the strategies outlined in the season guide. Also find your nearest CoachKings venue for tonight right here.
I’ll be talking you through my team for Friday night’s game between reigning premiers the Western Bulldog’s and Collingwood’s “football” team.
As you can see Lekdog’s Puppies will be running with both Scott Pendlebury and Adam Treloar tonight
Treloar had 66 disposals in his two games against the Bulldog’s in 2016 and I fully expect him to carry that form into 2017. He’s a no-brainer for the rev up at half time. Pendlebury is another obvious selection as he averages 28 disposals against the Western Bulldog’s across 13 matches. And I mustn’t forget that Brody Grundy will be hitting the ball down to this strong duo all day long, in the words of Crouching “he bloody lock”.
In an attempt to save some coin I’ve selected Henry Schade, he might not be great but he should be up and about for his first game for Collingwood. Helping out in defence is Tyson Goldsack who is reasonably affordable and I expect him to have a decent year, especially for CoachKings.
Tom Phillips and Tom Liberatore are my midfield wild cards. Libba should rack up a few points now that tackles are worth 4 points per, double the 2016 Coach Kings value. Phillips is always in my Coach Kings sides because he can pop up and kick a few as well as tackle around the ground.
Finally my forward line is going to feature Will Hoskin-Elliot who is just too cheap to ignore and Jake ‘The Package’ Stringer…mostly so I can stand BT yelling package at me through the TV.
I’m looking forward to another big year of Coach Kings and I’m looking forward to seeing you guys at some games, we need to organize some community meet ups!
