Leftys In-Vestments – Round 14

Here are Lefty’s Green Vest selections for this week. Who will be in the dreaded green? The selections will be updated after the teams are announced this evening. Who do you think will cop the Green Vest this round?


Welcome to Lefty’s In-Vestments for round 14, where once again I will have a crack at picking the dreaded green vests for this weeks games. I was pretty happy with my effort last week as I picked  5 of the green vesters with my first picks and  1 with my second pick (6/12). Hrovat owners would have been happy with his dodge of the green…and then filthy at both his output and his adornment of the red vest.

There were 5 late changes on the weekend, which from memory was one of the quietest this year. Bloody Puopolo being a late out and Ellis coming into the side as the sub cost me one of my picks – the Hawks had already put the team sheets in with Simpkin as starting sub – then again Crozier was a late in so I can’t really complain?

Due to tonight’s game I will post this in two parts, so part 1 will only have the Eagles and Bombers vest picks and then tonight when the rest of the team line ups are announced I will look at them and the previous green vests for each team, and try to work out the most likely starting sub candidates.

Except Gia. He will be the sub. Even if Bulldogs don’t name him in the side I am going to pick him as the sub. Daniel Green-Vest- A Curser. (ok so its only vaguely close but you get the idea)

    Why Gray over Pittard? Do you recommend playing Mayes over Dwyer considering Dwyer is your #1 pick & Mayes is your number #2 ?

      Gray has been sub 3 times this year and has the ability to really impact on the score board. I think Pittard was more of an injury management plan last week?

      Dwyer vs Mayes is a concern – personally I wouldnt want to start either. Dwyer will score more if he gets a full game IMO

      both full games = Dwyer>Mayes
      Both vested = Dwyer>Mayes
      Mayes full game vs Dwyer sub = Mayes over Dwyer
      Dwyer full game vs Mayes sub = Dwyer over Mayes

      therefore 3/4 scenarios have Dwyer on top IMO

        Dwyer makes his way out of my team this week. He’s been good but I think he has just about peaked in value for the year (with a BE in the 90’s).

        I think Gray has been eased back in enough and showed last week he can play out a full game and have a solid impact so I think he’ll avoid the green coat of shame this week.

        … of course now that I say that, Dwyer will bust out >100 and Gray will score 20 after coming on in the last quarter ;)

        Alright no worries, thanks mate. Haha it does suck a lot that I have to play these guys, but after last week my team is in all sorts with injuries! Cheers for the reply.
