The byes have returned to ruin all our lives. SuperCoach reverts to the best 18 format this week but you should have no problems fielding a pretty strong lineup this week with only Lachie Neale (owned by 56%) the major casualty. Rory Laird (24%) owners may also feel the pinch with backline rookies scarce and those that took a punt on the Big O alongside Sam Draper will be cursing their luck with Draper managed this week against Hawthorn.
Three changes each for the Hawks and Bombers this afternoon, headlined by Joe Daniher playing his first game in over a year. Andrew Phillips returns with Sam Draper (managed) and Tom Bellchambers (injured) both out. Jono Ceglar and Jack Gunston return for the Hawks, Shaun Burgoyne is amongst the outs.
Richmond take on West Coast tonight at Metricon and both sides have made two changes. Thomson Dow makes his debut and Toby Nankervis returns to take on the inform Nic Nat. Mabior Chol gets a rest. West Coast are also unveiling a debutante in Bailey Williams. Mark Hutchings also returns for a probable shutdown role on Dusty Martin.
Teams news for tonights game between the Western Bulldogs and Geelong shouldn’t raise any concerns. The Dogs have replaced Ben Cavarra and Pat Lipinski with Tory Dickson and Will Hayes. Geelong gain some experienced heads in the form of Harry Taylor and Zach Tuohy. Esava Ratugolea and Jordan Clark are the ones to make way.
These players come with a free Frogurt (that’s good)
These players come with Potassium Benzoate (that’s bad)
That’s all from me today. I’ll be back over the weekend as more team news drops.
