Mercury 2021: Round 08 - Team Selections 1 week 2 days ago #1

Mercury
As the first ALF game for round eight commences with, yet another, early night-time game for Richmond on Friday 7 May at 5:50pm, your team needs to be submitted to this thread by 5:40pm WA time on Friday.
Round 08
The Redemption Round

A chance for redemption; that's the hope that is keeping up the spirits in a few DuFFLe franchises. Let's have a look at three games: Straddo v Bizkit, MattyT v The Colonel and Alvin v FD1016.

  • The Souls look stronger than the Stars in the ruck, midfield and backs, but if Bizkit's forwards can kick a bundle - and they could - the match could swing his way. It won't though. Souls by 15 points.
  • El Primero have a slim ruck advantage over the Commandos and they are also marginally better in the backline. The Colonel, however, has a decided advantage in the middle and his forwards are also a touch better. This will be close. I think the Colonel may rise up the DuFFLe ladder and Matty's expense.
  • Alvin and FD1016 are well-matched in the ruck division - nothing between them. But the Buccaneers are dominant in the forward line and they need to be. The Piglets have the edge across the midfield and backline so the Buccaneers will need to kick a bundle to defeat FD's Piglets this week. There's hope and there is hubris. It's hubris for Alvin; FD1016 to win by an even dozen.

In the other matchups, Moppy will be too strong for Polly - if he remembers to get his team in on time. The Passes should have a great contest against the Jokers and I am leaning towards the Captain taking home the Iced Vovos. Blocker should be too good for Ooslumbird and the Ingredients will have too much firepower for PK's Kats.

Jolly Jokers, up against the G2G Passes and Merc's K.O.D

Backs: S May Mel, T Barrass WC
Mids: T Mitchell Haw, J Steele StK, J Simpkin NM
Fwds: JJ Kennedy WC, J Darling WC
Ruck: R Marshall StK
I/C: S Martin WB, J Bruce WB, E Curnow Car, S Ross StK

Not sure whether Barrass will play - he didn't play last week, but seems he is the most likely out of Barrass, Ryan and Howe.

"Barrass trained well on Tuesday during a skills session, showing no sign of any issues taking overhead marks, and could be back against the Hawks after missing the RAC Derby victory.
“Tom’s shoulder is tracking ahead of probably where we thought it might be,” General Manager Football Craig Vozzo told westcoasteagles.com.au.
“He’s got main training later this week and we’re hopeful he’ll be available but he needs to get through training.”

I'll try and look for an update tomorrow arvo.

Good luck all.
Iced Vovos...yum,yum!

I've hung on until the last day just to see if Rampe makes it back - who knows, I'll name him anyway and plunk Short on the pine just in case.

With Mercury's KOD on my side here's the team to meet Moptop's top of the table side:

HOOLEY-DOOLEYS
Round 8 v Mop's Mob

BACKS: 2xAliir; Rampe.
MIDS: Fyfe; Walsh; Wino.
FWDS: Hipwood; Mikey (gotta back him in).

This is our chance to go evens with Mop - all the best Fuzztop and everyone else.

Go Freo.
