Best 18 applies for round three
The Herald Sun has announced this week’s Supercoach round will use the scores from the best 18 players on the field for round three following the rescheduling of Essendon and Melbourne’s game.
The Essendon and Melbourne game will be played as part of the next block of games, meaning the two clubs will play five games when the AFL releases the next fixture.
The round Essendon and Melbourne play a second game in will count both games as part of the rounds scores, similar to double game weeks in Supercoach BBL.
Players who are listed as emergencies in your side will come onto the field if there is a donut to cover, but if you have Marc Pittonet on the bench with Grundy and Goldstein onfield, you will NOT get his score as there is no donut on the line to cover.
Using the top 18 scorers follows the precedent set by the AFL following the death of Phil Walsh.
