Team Sheets – Round 18
All the news, rumours, and team sheets for Round 18!
Not a great amount of changes this week! Darcy Cameron (RUC, 170,000) debuting is among the biggest news after averaging massive numbers in the NEAFL. The 9.7% of owners who held onto Josh Battle (FWD, 284,000) can welcome him back this week, just like the 33.3% that own Joel Smith (DEF, 265,000) and the 19.8% that held Sam Murray (DEF, 495,000). Jarrod Lienert (DEF, 170,000) is again in the extended squad, as is Brett Deledio (FWD, 591,000) after a successful NEAFL return.
David Swallow (MID, 555,000) is an exclusion I didn’t see coming, he and Jimmy Webster (DEF, 500,000) have burned POD-hunters this round, as has Matthew Kreuzer (RUC, 518,000). Michael Hibberd (DEF, 458,000), James Sicily (DEF/FWD, 645,000), and Nic Naitanui (RUC, 546,000) will all miss extended periods and are must-trades.
Finally, Robbie Gray (FWD, 492,000) and Josh P. Kennedy (MID, 607,000) have both been named.
