Def: 2 of - Gibsus, SDK, Daicos. Can loop via Ridley (McCartin could switch back and put SDK forward)
Mid: 1 of Mcomb, Clark, Long, N. Martin (Loop via Hamilton)
Fwd: Rioli, McCartin, Long - SDK, N. Martin.
Going to have to a closer look at the game sequencing. Back in a minute.
So I think:
Def: Gibcus (onfeild), loop: McCartin, Daicos.
Forward: Loop, SDK (if SDK scores well, leave Hamilton fwd as donut - if not I can either play Rioli, Long or Martin fwd)
Mid: loop: McComb (if he scores more than SDK, play one of Martin, Rioli, Long, Martin. fwd. in mids, or swinging fwd)
All too hard. There's opening up looping options and then there's having almost way to many permutations. Will be helpful in the buys.
Nick Martin - 4/9 scores higher than 85 in 2022
Zak Butters - 5/9 scores higher than 85 in 2022
Darcy Cameron - 100% of scores higher than 85 since taking over #1 ruck role, but the Cox inclusion is a different threat than Begg has been.
Finding this a tough decision, but my gut is suggesting that Butters might have a tough day against Geelong at GMHBA.
I think so. What do we expect Martin and Clark to score?
They've scored well, but expecting much more from 80 from any rookie, especially when the second half of the season hits they often taper off -and the opposition has more intel on them - not that this seems to matter against Essendon or West Coast much. Might get a few more points from one or the other, but could easily get a 30 or 40.
I'd like to know others thoughts on what we expect from Martin vs Clark, as I can either field one or both, moving Martin forward.
Other loop options being - McComb, Rioli, SDK and Long. Will put the E on SDK and go from there. Are Martin and Clark the best options out of that lot?
