Mercury 2019: Round 05 - Team Selections 6 days 12 hours ago #1

Mercury
Round 5 commences this Thursday (sigh) evening at 7.35pm at the Gabba. This means that your team has to be submitted to this thread by 5:25pm Thursday.

With Round 5 upon us, let’s start having a look at the strengths and weaknesses in the various DuFFLe franchises and first up are FD1016’s Rashers.

FD is an experienced player. She hasn’t rattled up heaps on wins in the past couple of years but was in the running for the premiership prior. The 2019 Rashers, how do they stack up? Are they a contender? In short; yes.

In the ruck, McEvoy is pulling in solid 20s. There is no obvious replacement for the big Hawk but if McEvoy stays fit he gives the Rashers a solid point-scoring base each week. And in the backline, FD has excellent service from any of Jason Johannisen, Travis Boak and James Sicily. Quality.

Looking to the midfield, quality abounds there as well with Johannisen, Boak, Bomtepelli and Dangerfield. Nic Newman and Zac Fisher also provide some depth.

It is in the forward line that FD has her biggest challenge each week. Who to choose from: Jack Ziebell, Connor Rozee, Jamie Elliott and Cam Raynor. All should kick a couple of goals with no-one standing out as a truly dominant forward.

FD has a really solid team. Injury to McEvoy is her only real weakness but her weekly challenge is picking the best blend of backs and midfields from her quality utility players. I did say her forwards were the biggest challenge but, on reflection, it isn’t. She could pick any two and they would do the job the the Rashers.

FD1016 as the premiership coach of 2019? Absolutely a good chance.

Funny, I remember that win fondly - I don't think I've ever had so much fun for a week following that game. That was like living in a world of fun flowers. Ah, the memories.

Im so glad I get to do it all over again - bet your house and investments on a Polly win.

Press play and then read



This is it people ,the invasion will soon begin, Polly's Poonce's are at the front of my stadium readying for battle, the kind of battle that builds with intensity every minute until it's GO TIME.

With the kind of blood pumping battle you get when you take on your arch NEMESIS.

All jokes are out (apart from Polly) and it's time to knuckle down with hard work and a laser beam like focus on the mission at hand (defeat polly at all costs)
