Get Off The Bench: Rd 5 Early Edition

Just a short update here for the first game of the week. I thought I would give you a bit of analysis here for the game on Thurs night between the Lions and Saints and then once I know the actual teams for the weekend games from Thursday Night’s team lists I will put up my full article with all teams considered.

Just a short update here for the first game of the week.  I thought I would give you a bit of analysis here for the game on Thurs night between the Lions and Saints and then once I know the actual teams for the weekend games from Thursday Night’s team lists I will put up my full article with all teams considered, and you will have time to change things on Friday since we only have a partial lockout and the teams will be able to be edited up until the start of the Power v Gold Coast game on Sat Avo.

Brisbane:

Rohan Bewick has been great with 68, 73 and a sub affected 49 in his last start.  I would consider him for a spot on the ground, however, if you have Swallow or Harris I would put them ahead of Rohan this week.  Brock McCauley has been named…. but no.  Ryan Lester isn’t in, so don’t use him either!  Jesse O’Brien has been fantastic and has 82 and 78 in his last two so I would start him with confidence whether you have him either forward or back.  Jared Polec played his first game last week and got a tidy 67.  Keep an eye on him but I think there are better options.

St Kilda:

The Saints have a couple of guys who played their first games last week for the year, Alistair Smith and Rhys Stanley did ok with 63 and 75 respectively, but I don’t think too many people would have them currently and I want to see another game out of them before I would play them.  Ryan Gamble is the only other player that people may have here but he has been dropped and isn’t even an emergency.

So that is the wrap on the Lions and Saints players, I will be back on Friday morning with a wrap on the other guys that you should be considering to cover those players with the byes this week.
