Festival of Fantasy | Day 17
We are actually kicking off a round of footy on a Thursday night, I repeat, WE ARE KICKING OFF A ROUND OF FOOTY ON A THURSDAY NIGHT. Unheard of. At least for the last 17 days.
The strangeness does not stop though with the Sydney Derby, or “Battle of the Bridge” as it is dubbed, being played at Optus Stadium in Perth. So it’s a battle of a different bridge, because I can confirm that Perth does indeed have bridges.

New round means new VC and the best Vice Captaincy options for this game are as follows:
Josh Kelly – Hasn’t scored massively against the Swans in the past with 116 being his highest ever score against them, but he does have the tendency to beat up on young and inexperienced sides.
Lachie Whitfield – Similar story to Josh Kelly. Whitfield’s highest ever against the Swans is 115.
Jake Lloyd – Not only is he projected to score 122 but his BE is also 122. Could go massive in this game and leave that projection in the dust, I imagine he’ll be seeing a lot of the ball.
Tom Hutchesson – $117,300 FWD/MID
Mature age recruit out of South Australia who averaged 62 at SANFL level in 2019. Champion Data compares him to the likes of Toby Greene.
Zac Foot – $123,900 FWD/MID
Small forward taken at Pick 51 in the 2018 draft. Compared to the likes of Sam Gray and Alex Sexton and averaged 48 in the U18s competition and 77 at TAC Cup (Now NAB League) level.
