Schon’s Skippers – Round 9

Welcome SuperCoaches. Leaders of men. Visionaries. Here is where I, @joshschon look at the best captain options for the round. Last week wasn’t as good as my form has been, I had Fyfe (128), JPK (104) and Jobe (70). Let’s get a better result this round.

Luke Parker
The Parker we got used to last season is back, with three solid weeks in a row. His last three average is 130 and he comes up against the dilapidated Blues on Friday.

Lance Franklin
Buddy is in a massive 22% of sides, and went goalless last week in a disappointing display. However, we know he’ll hit back against a weak Carlton this week. Averages 120 in his past three against the Blues.

Sam Mitchell
Midfielders have scored strongly against the Suns in the last few weeks including Matt Priddis (196) and Scott Pendlebury (135), and I expect Mitchell to be that man this week. His GC record is excellent, averaging 132 against them in his last three.


Robbie Gray
Expect a Gray field-day against the Dees. Even before he moved into the midfield, he scored well against them, highlighted by his 114 in 2011. Last year he delivered 134 and 109 against Melbourne.

Shane Mumford
The big Mummy is in fine form, averaging 122 in his last three. He hits a Doggies side with a distinct weakness in the ruck, so expect a big one from the big fella.

Brendon Goddard
BJ scored only 78 last week but meets one of his favourite opponents this week, the Tigers. Averages 111 over his career against Richmond including a high of 188. A big Dream Time coming up for Goddard.


Nat Fyfe
It’s Nat Fyfe. He’ll towel Adelaide up this week.

Tom Rockliff
Rocky is going to start to come back into calculations for captaincy once more. He scored a season high 120 last week and plays the Saints this week who lack midfield depth.

Scott Pendlebury
Pendles loves North he’s my pick of the week. In his last three against the Roos he averages a mammoth 148. Looked as smooth as ever in his 200th last week.

Top three of the week:
3. Scott Pendlebury
2. Nat Fyfe
1. Sam Mitchell
