Thursday Footy Frenzy – Round 17
It’s now round 17! All our players have niggling injuries! I don’t know what day it is! Have Essendon crumpled again? I have no idea!!
We do have an enthralling clash between *checks notes* West Coast and St Kilda? tonight, which is a meaningful match which will actually impact finals. That’s despite it being played on a… is it Thursday? TIME IS MEANINGLESS.
Anyway, here’s the regular programming of Stuff:
West Coast v St Kilda, 7.10pm
There are literally no interesting low breakevens, although Hamish Brayshaw is set to make his debut for the Eagles.
189 – Nic Nat
160 – Andrew Gaff
127 – Jeremy McGovern
124 – Josh J Kennedy
119 – Jack Steele
If ya got Jack Steele, you may as well throw the VC on him. Averaging 143 over his last three starts and scored 167 and 151 against packed Brisbane and Melbourne midfields, he’s a chance to score similar here.
Nic Nat is the other option fresh off a rest and without Bailey Williams in the side. He’d be worth a shout as VC if you want to see if he can recapture his four-week stretch of 146, 129, 153 and 146. Likes playing the Saints, too.
Hamish Brayshaw. He’ll have a few games. Bring in him maybe? I dunno, I’m not your mum.
ALSO – on an important note, today is R U OK Day. We’ve been vocal about it through the year that this is just a rubbish, awful, no good, very bad time for a lot of people. If you’re having a rough trot of it, please do reach out to someone.
