TEAM REVEAL: Barron Von Crow
My team has been like a science experiment over the pre-season. I’ve tinkered, I’ve experimented, I’ve done all sorts of crazy things just because I could do them, and out of all that, this is the end result.
This is my team, I hope you like it.
My backline isn’t anything out of the ordinary here with Laird being an always reliable pick, Houston being highly selected due to the promise of midfield minutes and Docherty being Docherty. Cumming performed well over the Marsh Series games, so gets an early nod at D4, while Zerk, Williams, McAsey and Gould are all speculative at this stage and could still be moved on, pending Round 1 selections.
I’ve taken a chance on Kelly staying healthy this year as my M1, while Cripps, Dunkley and Danger select themselves. I’ve always been a big fan of Elliot Yeo, but never gone with him as a starting selection, so I’ve decided to take the plunge this year with him. People will ask about his scores going down with the addition of Tim Kelly, obviously I’ve selected him believing that won’t happen, with talk that Kelly may be spending time forward and the likes of the Western Bulldogs as an example of a team being able to have multiple high scoring midfielders.
Can’t beat Grundy/Gawn!
The riskiest line I have with 3 midprice speculations on Wingard, Brayshaw and Smith. It’s probably a make-or-break for my side, if they fail then there’s a lot of work to be done in fixing this line, but risks are all part of picking your Supercoach team. This has led me to pick Dustin Martin as my F1, a stabilising pick who will keep his value at worst. Crocker has been busy for the Crows and I like his job security slightly more then Ben Davis’ who I think will also be available to select for Round 1. Brander is in on the promise of a wing role, which may or may not eventuate.
So that’s my side for now, as with all our sides it’s totally dependent on what the teams look like for Round 1, but at this stage it’ll be changes around the edges, rather than a total overhaul on any changes from here.
