Australian, The – EVERY SuperCoach decision this week carries the weight of a season of sweat and tears.
- Many teams have a non-playing rookie on the bench (such as Tim Smith up forward or Logan Austin in defence) that allows you to put the emergency on an inconsistent scorer who plays early in the round.
- The same principle can be used in other positions with the likes of Paul Ahern, Tom Rockliff and Tom Doedee (it also keeps your opponent guessing when they are trying to follow live league scores).
- Will it matter or does it open the door for Patrick Dangerfield (average 127 over his past five games) or Joel Selwood (159 last week)?
- Dustin Martin is looking a lot more like the 2017 Dusty and comes up against the rudderless Suns who have conceded cricket scores to midfielders in the past fortnight (Patrick Cripps 173, Marc Murphy 152, Clayton Oliver 147).
