I won’t take too much of your time up with an introduction, but I would like to point out that I have a very good strike rate with my Smokey options. Just sayin.
Anyway, here’s captains.
Top VICE-CAPTAINCY Options:
Friday Night vs Hawthorn – AVG vs Team: 93.5
Surprisingly hasn’t had a great run against the Hawks with 116 his highest ever score against Clarko’s boys, but Grundy has been playing like a man possessed lately and wouldn’t surprise me to see him hit a new personal best score against the Hawks.
Saturday Night vs Geelong – AVG vs Team: 73.3
Didn’t get a chance to test himself against the Geelong midfield last year thanks to the hamstring injury he suffered mid season, but he gets his chance now. Geelong haven’t traditionally tagged this year, but that may change with the Dogs engine room a cut above as of late.
Saturday Night vs West Coast – AVG vs Team: 109.4
No Mark Hutchings to worry about, and playing in front of his home crowd. Tick and tick. Fyfe hasn’t scored less than 125 at home this year, couple that with no tag to worry about, fire in the belly from a stinging loss last week and a Derby in front of the home crowd and you’ll get SuperFyfe™.
Saturday vs Richmond – AVG vs Team: —
Up against his old side and will want to prove they gave him up too easily. Has been on fire scoring 118 in consecutive weeks. Could he go bigger than that against his old mates on the Suns home deck?
Top CAPTAINCY Options:
Sunday vs St Kilda – AVG vs Team: 93.1
Cunners is actually playing the team he had his best previous average, so with his new found ceiling, who knows how far he’ll go. The Saints aren’t exactly humming at the moment, and since Rhyce Shaw took over the Kangaroos they’ve been one hungry team. Ben Cunnington scored 108 last time he plays the Saints.
Sunday vs Brisbane – AVG vs Team: 101.8
Scored a 149 last time Kelly played the Lions, and averages a massive 121.3 at Giants home ground. Brisbane only seem to be running with players this year, and most teams look to shut down Kelly’s teammates rather than Kelly himself. Probably my favourite of the Captain’s this week.
Sunday vs GWS – AVG vs Team: 113.9
No Matt de Boer to worry about, and looks to have bounced back into some good form. Has never played at the Giants home ground so no data to support how well he does / doesn’t go at the ground, but positively this year Neale has only scored under 120 twice against Top 8 sides this year.
Sunday vs St Kilda – AVG vs Team: 106.2
Not that Rowan Marshall hasn’t been good, but at Blundstone Arena the Kangaroos usually grow a leg or two and it’s usually in some part thanks to this bloke. The ageing Kangaroo warrior has been quietly going about his business this year only going below 95 three times. Has scored 123 or better in his last three games against the Saints, too.
