Fremantle vs Collingwood: JLT Review

Fremantle vs Collingwood: JLT Review

With Fremantle missing most of their first choice midfield unit, it was always going to be a tough task for them against Collingwood. The Dockers came out firing though, taking a 26 point lead at the first break in hot and blustery conditions. Collingwood came back to be a goal up at half time, and […]

Brisbane vs Hawthorn: JLT Review

Brisbane vs Hawthorn: JLT Review

A nearly full strength Brisbane side up against a very young Hawthorn side that provided us some rookies to think about. The weather was doing all sorts of things, the heat policy was enacted and then it started pouring with rain, and then it was fine when the broadcast commenced and the heat policy still […]

GWS vs Sydney: JLT Review

Patch has flicked me the keys to the company chopper and I’ve made the 4,000km journey from Leederville Oval over to Blacktown to have a gander at GWS v Sydney this evening. Few big names out for both sides means we probably shouldn’t get too excited over this game, nonetheless, Patch pays my wages in […]

North Melbourne vs St Kilda: JLT Review

North Melbourne vs St Kilda: JLT Review

North Melbourne up against the St Kilda Jacks in Werribee. The Saints took control in the second quarter after struggling early, and gee some of the Jack’s looked good. Let’s dive in. I like stats so here’s an interesting one: The Saints (sorry, the Jacks) had almost 100 less disposals than North Melbourne, so they […]

West Coast vs Geelong: JLT Review

Before I begin, big shout out to the Kayo sports app for streaming the game on a full sized screen. Unlike the bloody AFL app which refuses to enlarge beyond postage stamp size. I fear I have irreversible eye damage from squinting at that thing. But I digress, onwards we go! Game two of the […]

SuperCoach 2019 – Player reviews: Dylan Shiel

Shiel moved to Essendon in a blockbuster that strengthened their case as a favourite to shoot up the ladder. He has eye-catching skills, he can rack up disposals and can kick goals out of midfield. So why has he never averaged more than 103 in a season with perennial finalists GWS? THE GOOD Dylan Shiel […]

SuperCoach 2019 – Player reviews: Jack Viney

The Demons’ co-captain had a year he’d probably rather forget for a multitude of reasons. The main reason though would be that he couldn’t stay on the park, an issue that hasn’t been much of a problem until last year. His foot was playing silly buggers and he had a few false starts as a […]

SuperCoach 2019 – Player Reviews: Jimmy Webster

Jimmy Webster looked well on his way to a true breakout season in 2018, until he was derailed by a hip/groin issue that killed his momentum and expansive role. His body remains a question mark, but with an apparent move up the wing on the cards, the prospect of someone with Jimmy’s rare disposal ability […]

SuperCoach 2019 – Player reviews: Josh Dunkley

SuperCoach 2019 – Player reviews: Josh Dunkley

Coach Luke Beveridge shuffled a few magnets in 2018 that resulted in Josh Dunkley having a good ol’ fashioned third year breakout in 2018. He increased his average by 35 to 95.1SC on the back of 22 disposals (8 contested), 5 marks, and 6 tackles per game. It was a season of two halves for […]

SuperCoach 2019 – Player reviews: Dayne Zorko

The Lions captain provides an interesting conundrum: his ability to find the football vs his inability to break a tag. There is no doubt that Zorko can go big, but there are a few other things that means he doesn’t do it as consistently as we SuperCoaches would like. THE GOOD He has no issue […]

SuperCoach 2019 – Player reviews: Anthony Miles

Despite playing 41 of a possible 44 games over the 2015/16 seasons (and averaging a handy 93.4), Anthony Miles just couldn’t break into a strong Richmond midfield over the past two years, only playing 6 games. In my research, I stumbled on this little factoid that sent blood rushing to the nether regions: “According to […]

SuperCoach 2019 – Player reviews: Jayden Short I think it was the famous 19th century philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche that uttered this famous quote. It could have been Socrates. I’m not too sure, community. History isn’t my area. Anyway, the quote is thus: Go Shorty, it’s ya birthday /  We gonna party like it’s your birthday […]
