Festival of Fantasy | Day 10
Is it day 10 of this festival? I don’t know. Time is meaningless and an illusion, and I have no clue what day it is. Who’s playing today? What round is it? What’s going on? I have no answers for you.
Actually I lie, I have some answers. It’s Thursday, which means St Kilda and Gold Coast play tonight after Collingwood will towel up Sydney. It’s still round 10 – a round which finishes tomorrow night.
Also – this isn’t relevant to today’s footy but this is just a Clayton Oliver appreciation sentence. What a man.
Collingwood vs Sydney – 5.40pm
Brodie Grundy – the Swans don’t really have a ruck. I mean Callum Sinclair’s okay, but Grundy will eat him alive. The Swans don’t really have a midfield either. Enough said.
Both Adam Treloar and Taylor Adams should get a decent run at it through the middle this week if you feel lucky and want to throw caution to the winds.
Don’t captain anyone from Sydney, for the love of god.
Trey Ruscoe had the best “telling mum he’s debuting” video of all time, let’s hope he can score Supercoach points as well. Small forward Sam Wicks will debut for the Swans.
St Kilda vs Gold Coast
If you captain anyone other than Jack Steele from this game, you’re an idiot. Hopefully you captained one of Clarry, Neale or Macrae and have taken that, but if you’re desperate for a late-round captain and don’t have Giants midfielder who’ll eat the Bombers alive, I guess Jack Steele will do? He’s good at football this year?
As much as I love Touk Miller, no-one else from this game should be your captain.
We finally get a look at Jeremy Sharp! The Suns moved picks around to get Sharp in, and you’d bloody hope he’ll be good considering they moved their concessions on to get him. $117,300 midfielder – one to watch.
