Also got a question for you, with Essendon’s 84 point win over the Dogs then a 71 point loss to the Saints the biggest turnaround in a week of football? 155 points is pretty big, just wondering if there is a bigger margin.

Adelaide Crows

Who’s Hot: Vince (126), Thompson (110), Wright (121), Porplyzia (100) and Jacobs (122) were all amazing and dominated the young giants and Sam Shaw provided great cover with 84 even after coping a falcon from Izzy Folau.
Who’s Cold: Patty Dangerfield had a sub par game with just 76 and so did Rory Sloane he only had the 77 they both failed to capitalize

Interesting breakevens for the week.

Thompson 134
Sloane 101
Dangerfield 109
Van Berlo 36
Tippett 108
Shaw -15
Porplyzia 64
Jacobs 34


Brisbane Lions

Who’s Hot: Dayne Zorko again was amazing 113 this week and now averaging 100 points this season. Jack Redden and Tom Rockliff had respectable scores with 89 and 81 respectively.

Who’s Cold: Jed Adcock had another disappointing game with only 63 points. While Josh Drummond had a shocker and only mustered up 44 points and Jonathon Brown only had 51 and only kicked the 1 goal.

Drummond 70
Redden 157

Carlton Blues

Who’s Hot:. Chris Judd had an amazing game and ended up with a whopping 147 points. Carrazzo (123) Robinson (112) and Murphy returned after a long absence and had a nice 105.

Who’s Not:Chris Judd had a great game, but will now likely miss a few weeks after a disgusting act against Leigh Adams. We thought Matty Kruezer was back but he had another dirty night only scoring 40 and Andrew Walker’s 4 points before being subbed in the first quarter killed the coaches who have him.

Interesting breakevens for the week:

Judd 144
Carrazzo 59
Gibbs 88
Robinson 81
Bootsma 73
Kruezer 80
Murphy 144


Collingwood Magpies

Who’s Hot: Dayne Beams had a huge game which resulted in a whopping 137. Scott Pendlebury welcome back! 117 after a long layout was great for the coaches that kept him myself included. Swan (116) and Shaw (99) both had great games as well.
Who’s Cold: Travis Cloke again he had another stinker 1 goal and only 9 disposals lead to 41 points while Marty Clarke had a sub affected 30 but looked much better than he did the week before.

Interesting breakevens for the week:
Pendlebury 144
Shaw 78
Sidebottom 129
Beams 131
Clarke 75
Elliot 82
Swan 182

Essendon Bombers

Who’s Hot: Jobe Watson again was huge especially in the last quarter finishing with 124 and Dyson Heppell returned to form with a 98 after spending more time in the midfield and rookie Mark Baguley had a great first game with 81 but you will have to wonder about job security with so many players to come back for the dons.
Who’s Cold: Courtaney Dempsey didn’t have a great game with only 63 and those relying on Cory Dell’Olio for bench cover would be slightly disappointed he played a good game but only scored 52 points.

Watson 135
Stanton 153
Heppell 78
Dell’Olio 10
Dempsey 112

Harvey 69
Adams 125

: Colin Sylvia (98) continued his resurgence and Jack Grimes had a great game with 105 even though he was hampered by a rolled ankle. While much talked about rookie Tom Couch had a solid 70 in his first game

Who’s Not: Those who have Mark Jamar will be tearing their hair out after only 10 and being subbed after a reoccurrence of his calf injury and now looking like missing more time with this injury and Nathan Jones was quiet only scoring 66.

Redden 27
Ebert 113
Pffeifer 25


Richmond Tigers
Who’s Hot:
Brett Deledio (141) and Trent Cotchin (137) were absolutely incredible on the weekend and Jack Riewoldt was huge with 5 goals and 112. Those relying on Brandon Ellis for bench cover (myself included) would be ecstatic after he scored 103

Who’s Cold: Those who traded in Tom Derickx would be unhappy with his 19 points and Chris Newman only had 45 and he also copped a kick to the head and got his hand stomped on to add to his troubles.

Tuck 132
