Mailing It In | Round 14
This week the boys have decided to give the mics a rest.
Your questions will not go unanswered though! Questions will be asked, and they shall be answered.
See what we had to ponder below…
Dude. It all seemed way too good to be true! And then about 25 minutes before the game started the great Pete Jank of Virtual Sports confirmed the loophole. At a guess, nobody had been game enough to try it, and those that knew chose to keep a secret until the panic ensued when Ned Reeves was a late out.
Don’t get us started, forward line is a rabble! You could probably throw a blanket over the top 30 at this point, and this run home will decide the top 6. At a guess, in no particular order, Ziebell, Hall, Zorko, Langford, Dale, Hawkins – plus Dangerfield, Greene, Martin and McDonald will be closing in as well. Dustin Martin has a knack for coming home strong.
As long as Josh Kelly keeps doing what he’s doing, then he’s the best option out of the four you have mentioned by a long way. Tom Mitchell’s 4 contested possessions in that North Melbourne game looks more and more like a strange anomaly, and Aaron Hall, well, is doing things we didn’t know he was capable of. Nothing against Toby Greene and every chance to be a top 6-8 forward, but think I’d prefer the bigger scores from Josh Kelly. Final answer: Josh Kelly if you want a mid. Aaron Hall if you want a forward.
It will probably affect Ziebell more than Hall, but both players will likely take a hit. Jack Ziebell moved up onto the wing with also some forward minutes late in the game versus the Giants, so we may also see an unfriendly role change for Ziebell as a result of McDonald’s inclusion. Positively though McDonald is replacing Lachie Young who was playing a little higher, almost like a 7th midfielder who swept the defensive 50 arc.
