Published by Barron Von Crow on

Hello community and welcome to another week of Around the Grounds. Round 17 is now done and dusted and we’re one week closer to Supercoach Finals. For some they’ll be gunning for overall rankings while others may be looking at their league matchups as their priority. Whatever way you’re playing I’m sure we’ll have something on offer for you here to help you this week. So, let’s go look at what happened in Round 17.

Victoria

Collingwood

Collingwood were challenged, but a 5.5 to 0.2 final quarter gave Collingwood an 88-81 win over North Melbourne. Nick Daicos (DEF/MID, $506,500, BE 53) continued his great form and had 21 disposals, 4 marks, 3 tackles and a goal for 99 SCPoints.

A solid score for him, though he’ll potentially be one like Maurice Rioli has been where if he doesn’t get a few goals he’ll score in the 40-type range.

You can call it the Jase and Josh show this week with the pair being the clear favourites among players on who to bring in this week (and with good reason!). Midfield upgrades look to be on tap this week with Mills, Brayshaw, Steele, and Laird all on the top 10 list of most traded in players. Gawn is also being brough back into a few sides with Luke Jackson being moved out while Daniel Rioli and Tim Taranto popular MID/FWD swings being brought in.

And that’ll be it for me this week, as usual you can reach me on the Twitter @BarronVonCrow or you can leave a question/comment in the section below. See you all next week!

Lots of good info again, thanks Barron. Unfortunately, didn’t see Hamilton or Clarke’s name mentioned again so doesn’t look like either will get a recall
