Schon’s Skippers – Round 8

Welcome SuperCoaches, for another round. Hopefully you avoided a majority of the carnage and moved up in the rankings.
My top three from the weekend were fairly good: Joel Selwood got 89, Sam Jacobs 130 and Nat Fyfe a powerful 146.
It takes my season average up to 112 per pick and my last two rounds averaging 123.
Another I was thrilled to even mention last week was Matt Priddis – he was always going to thump the weak Suns and delivered with a mammoth 196, this season’s highest score.

Joel Selwood
The Cats’ skipper had a good time against the Blues’ in 2014, with two games at a 116 point average. Despite this, his current form is too poor ignore, he won’t have my VC this week.

Matt Priddis
A sheep pick perhaps, but I had him last week too. Averages 123 against the Saints since 2013, so you can’t go wrong with Mr Brownlow.


Patrick Dangerfield
His record against the Giants is exceptional. Thumped out 192 last year against them and averages 122 over five matches. I feel like he’s just hitting form and he’s due for a biggie.

Scott Pendlebury
We know what a class act Pendles is and doesn’t play two bad games in a row. He wasn’t even that bad last week, the standard is just so high. We saw what Priddis did to the Suns’ midfield last week, and Scotty P has never scored below 95 against them.

Josh P Kennedy
We all know the story. Traded from Hawthorn, dominates them every time. His scores against them include 173, 153 and 143, for a 120 point average. Great choice.

Dan Hannebery
I’ve been impressed by the maturity of Hanners this year, scoring consistently including three 130s or more already. In Round 8 last year he managed 159 against the Hawks, so has form too.

Nat Fyfe
He’s the comp’s best easily right right with GAJ out. His past two against the Roos read 134 and 131. An he averages 122 at Domain Stadium this year, BELOW his season average.

Jobe Watson
The son of gun has an exceptional record against the Lions, almost God-like numbers of late. A 109 career average against Brisbane, and an average of 145 from his last three against them. I hate saying it but he’s due in 2015 too.

Robbie Gray
He’s almost as safe a pick as there is these days. Averages a lean 73 against the Tigers, so tread with caution this week.

Tom McDonald
Pretty well the most consistent player in the competition, incredible as that is. His record against the Bulldogs is nothing to speak of, as before this year he’d never really hit a hundred. But form says he’ll score another triple figure score.

TOP 3:
3. Josh P Kennedy
2. Jobe Watson
1. Nat Fyfe
