Mercury 2021: Round 07 - Team Selections 2 weeks 1 day ago #1

Mercury
The AFL's Round 7 bouncedown occurs at 5:50pm WA time this Friday when the beleaguered Richmond face the in-form Western Bulldogs at the MCG. That should be a great game to watch, just remember to have your team submitted to this thread by 5:40pm WA time.


Two games catch the eye this week: Straddo v MattyT and CaptDazza v Ooslumbird. Let's look at them.

Straddo's Souls have the advantage in the ruck over MattyT with Adelaide's O'Brien performing well and The West's perennial front page, NicNat, showing less enthusiasm for the contest this year. In the midfield, Straddo also has the edge with Miller, Lyons, Cripps and Gaff to choose from whereas MattyT just has Travis Boak and Tom Liberatore. But in the forward line, El Primero can counter with Stringer, Finlayson and Mihocek; Straddo really only has Max King. Lastly, looking at the backline the teams appear well-matched - Lucosius, McGovern and Duggan versus Gaff (if he isn't in the midfield), Membrey and Langdon. Judgement: The Souls by ten points.

Oos smashes The Captain in the ruck contest; Maxy Gawn is the only one in this competition. It is much tighter in the midfield, however, with Oos's Knights selecting Rory Laird, Jaeger O'Meara and Marcus Bontempelli and the Jokers matching them with Tom Mitchell, Jack Steele and Edward Curnow. The Captain's Jokers take a major advantage into the game with Josh Bruce in the forward line; he hits the goals regularly and is the wildcard in the forward pack. Looking to the defenders both teams seem on par and this is mirrored by the contest between Tom Barrass (CaptDazza) and Oleg Markov (Ooslumbird). So it comes down to this: can the forward line of the Jokers make up for their deficiency in thr ruck? Judgement: The Knights by 15 points.

Just a heads up Merc, word on the street is Ben Brown is about to make his debut for the Buccaneers and the Dees.
Oh and they are playing the Roos, just incase you want to review your predictions.

Still waiting for Paddy Ryder to debut and maybe that might be this week as well.

Bizkit 2021: Round 07 - Team Selections 1 week 6 days ago #13

Bizkit
We somehow fell over the line last week but sent Lachie Neale to go join Matt Crouch on the sidelines for an extended period. The wheels are falling off here and we're in danger of spiraling out of control.

However we come up against the crazy cat lady this week who we have a handy record against. Normally we select our side against Polly and wait for the win to roll in but these Dooley's are a formidable unit in 2021. They've been pumping out some huge scores and that's without getting their best team in the right spots. Their midfield is good for 100pts and if she gets her forwards and backman in the right spots, we could be toast.

B: Jiath (hawk), Ridley (druggie)
M: Cunnington (roo), Parker (swan), Houston (port)
F: T Lynch (tiger), Daniher (lion)

Nathan: When did you get balls?

Nathan: That's the gayest thing I've ever heard.
