Who’s Your Captain? – Round *checks notes* 13
I can’t believe I’m saying this but thank god we have been able to breathe for the these last 3 days. The Festival is over….for now, and we can finally actually properly think about everything to do with our SuperCoach team.
One of the easier things to do during the chaos was decide on your captain, but that’s not going to stop me from telling you who to go for.
Last 3 vs Gold Coast: 169, 73, 115
Last 3 at TIO Stadium: nil
Plays the Gold Coast on Friday night in Darwin. Hasn’t reached his usual heights this year but loves a game against the Suns where he scored massively last time they met.
Last 3 vs Melbourne: 93, 128, 90
Last 3 at Metricon: 199, 96, 87
Had a monster game against the Crows but is unlikely to get the same freedom against the Dees. Positively, he hasn’t gone below 114 in his last 3 games now, appears to be getting on a roll.
Last 3 vs Melbourne: 120, 105, 131
Last 3 at Metricon: 118, 162, 169
My pick of the Bulldogs players given his history both at Metricon and against the Demons. Had an acceptable game against the Crows last week but was clearly playing second fiddle to Smith and Bontempelli, hopefully this week he has a more driving role in that stacked Dogs midfield.
Last 3 vs Western Bulldogs: 75, 125, 136
Last 3 at Metricon: 177, 175, 83
Like Macrae, Oliver also scores well both at Metricon and against his opposition, but Oliver doesn’t have as good of a record against the Demons and at Metricon compared to Macrae. Still a great option.
Last 3 vs Swans: 101, 115, 145
Last 3 at Optus Stadium: 112, 130, 121
Dockers saw last week what happens when you leave their best midfielder up forward for too long. While I don’t think his forward stints have disappeared, I’d be surprised if he didn’t spend more time in the midfield against the Swans.
Last 3 vs Dockers: 121, 173, 82
Last 3 at Optus Stadium: 137, 121, 119
The Dockers like to bomb the ball into their 50, and Jake Lloyd loves to intercept. It’s a better love story than Eddie McGuire and Dermott Brereton on Friday Night Footy.
Last 3 vs Adelaide: 128, 83, 158
Last 3 at Adelaide Oval: 141, 128, 158
Dangerfield is going to walk all over the Crows, he usually does. It doesn’t matter where they are on the ladder it’s pretty much a given that Dangerfield will usually score well, and big.
Last 3 vs St Kilda: 79, 118, 117
Last 3 at Gabba: 167, 130, 147
Lachie will likely find himself with Jack Steele following him around. May not score well, but also has every chance of laughing his way to a 130+ score. Still worth putting the C on, but I’d seriously consider switching if your VC fails.
Last 3 vs North Melbourne: 133, 113, 114
Last 3 at the Gabba: 148, 147, 100
He has had two scores above 145 in his last three games, and has a reasonably good history both at the Gabba and against the Kangaroos. He’s returning to the form we all know and love.
What’s your VC/C combination this week, Community?
