Sunday extended benches have been selected. No late changes to Crows vs Hawks. Lockout at 7:50pm GOOD LUCK.

afl anzac

No late changes Crows vs Hawks.

LATE NEWS: Caleb Daniel is out.

Sunday Extended Benches ARE OUT! Some handy late news for Monday game, Mason Cox (Ruck/Fwd.) is confirmed to Debut for the pies. Reminder we won’t know other rookies for pies/bombers match so it isnt worth taking the risk.
No Christian Petracca, but what is this! Freo have named a rookie! Darcy Tucker (Def. $158,000, AF. $121,300 DT) to debut.

So Rocky is back!!! Also great news for Stefan Martin (Ruck) owners, he isn’t omitted, (although there may be a chance of a late withdraw). Alas, the DT Gods are shining with Daniel Currie (Ruck. $125,000 AF $128,200 DT) debuting as a solo ruck for suns, and Mason Cox (Ruck/Mid. $125,000 AF $121,300 DT) a strong possibility.
Josh Gibson (Def.) is back from 1 week rest and raring to go. Brett Deledio (Fwd/Mid.) is a huge in for the Tigers, and gives us a solid forward premium option.
Christian Petracca (Fwd/Mid. $238,000, 43 be AF. $128,200 DT) is finally listed, but will he make the sunday cut. George Hewett (Mid. $218,000, 16 be AF. $182,800, 10 be DT)  has snuck back into the team for the few out there that still has him sitting on their benches.
Rookie omission pain for many teams with Ryan Davis, Clayton Oliver, Wayne Milera, Matt Jones, and infamous Daniel Howe out. I swear Howe must be Patrick Karnezis in disguise.

Its Round 5, ANZAC round, Lest we forget. All of Australia will stop in the morning on Monday to commemorate those who went to fight for the country in World War I over 100 years ago, and all AFL teams will pay their respects. The Monday ANZAC Pies vs Dons game, means unfortunately we wont know bench selections before lockout. Particularly annoying when their are indications that Mason Cox (Ruck/Mid. $125,000 AF $121,300 DT) and Rupert Wills (Mid. $125,000 AF $121,300 DT) could debut. Ruck benches are further bolstered with Daniel Currie (Ruck. $125,000 AF $128,200 DT) confirmed to debut for the Suns. Popular Defender Jason Johannisen (Def.) is unfortunately out for 10 weeks with a serious hamstring injury. Good news if you held Lincoln McCarthy (Fwd. $204,000, -6 be AF. $ 188,200, -20 be DT) or Corey Enright (Def.) who are confirmed to play bar unforeseen circumstances, with Cats confirming that McCarthy was being managed for foot problems. Those who had David Mundy (Mid.) as a POD, unfortunately he is confirmed to not be an inclusion this week. WCE have confirmed Sharrod Wellingham (Def), Matt Priddis (Mid.) and Andrew Gaff (Mid.) are certain starters.

Shag’s Pick

Tom Lee (Def. $152,000 AF $ 128,200 DT) made the list after a very handy 85. Yet another Def rookie option, however he does have some experience under his belt being a veteran rookie.

Liam sumner (Fwd/Mid. $141,000, 10 be $ 128,200 DT)

Shag’s Pick

Just what we needed right, another defender rookie? Couldn’t they have waited a few more matches for the others to become plump? Darcy Tucker (Def. $158,000, AF. $121,300 DT) had great NAB form, and only the fact Freo not playing rookies as a reason he hasnt played yet. Good news is once you make the squad at freo, you tend to stay.

Sam Frost (Fwd/Ruck. $174,000 AF $217,900 DT)
Josh Wagner (Def. $166,000 AF $125,300 DT)

Everything too expensive to consider.

Shag’s Pick

I heard Kevin Bartlet on the radio say no Brett Deledio (Fwd/Mid. $530,000 AF $ 554,800 DT) no Tigers. He could be right. As a fwd he is very DT relevent, and he could become as vital as a top 6 fwd as he is to the Tigers team. I would wait 1 week to see how injury affected he is, but definitely keep a close eye on his return game.

Sam Grimley

Shag’s Pick

Although extended benches won’t be known for Monday Mason Cox (Ruck/Mid. $125,000 AF $121,300 DT) has been reported as Debuting for the pies, so its pretty safe to assume he makes the team (named on field as well). Yet another ruck rookie playing this week! Don’t expect a huge score, he is a ruck rookie afterall.

Tim O’Brien (Fwd. $140,000 AF $128,200 DT)

Mitch McGovern (Fwd $224,000 AF $220,000 DT)

Shag’s Pick

No new rookies to grab in this game, so I have decided to go with Josh Gibson (Def. $520,000 be 65 AF $525,800 BE 36 DT) who has been rested and should come back firing. We an average of 113 and a ceiling of 157, and very low BE with so many defenders failing you have to consider him, as we all know Hawks have a very DT friendly game.

 George Hewett (Mid. $218,000, 16 be AF. $182,800, 10 be DT) 


Shag’s Pick

Dan Hannebery (Mid. $555,000 be 90 AF $600,400 be 98 DT) showed us what he can do when he isnt knocked out scoring a 132. You could wait 1 week, but many would argue he has bottomed out, and this week would be a good week to grab him at a cheaper price. If he keeps scoring high tonnes, he wont get any cheaper.

Daniel Currie (Ruck. $125,000 AF $128,200 DT)
Peter Wright (Fwd. $146,000 AF $193,200 DT)


Shag’s Pick

Well isnt this a blessing from the DT gods. Daniel Currie (Ruck. $125,000 AF $128,200 DT) is set to debut, and with Nicholls out he is the main ruck too. With so few ruck rookies around, it could be worth a sneaky luxury trade in AF from what ever non playing spud you may have on your bench. Also nice for S.Martin owners to know there is backup for a late withdrawl.

Shag’s Pick

Tom Rockliff (Mid. $538,000 be 155 AF $606,900 be 201 ) is fantasy Royalty. Scoring a measly 24 and a in an injury set game he is set to lose a lot of value, so this week probably isnt the week to trade him in. For those who held, its great to see him back. Watch this space!

Lincoln McCarthy (Fwd. $204,000, -6 be AF. $ 188,200, -20 be DT)

Shag’s Pick

Yet another defender rookie to look at, Darcy Byrne-Jones (Def. $169,000, be -20 AF. $128,200 be -61 DT)
not much fanfare after his 1st game with 48, followed up with a solid 84, and looks to be a good rookie option. With Cats, Tiges, Lions, Blues coming up, so long as he gets a game you would think he should score well. On the bubble in RDT so this is the week to grab.
