Great POD choice for VC/C could potentially be Z Merrett.

Z Merrett:
Avg VS Freo since 2016: 122.5 from 6 (low of 95 and a high of 135, 1/6 below 100, 5/6 120+)
Last 3 VS Freo: 113 from 3 (low of 95 and a high of 123, 1/3 below 100, 2/3 120+)
2018 Interstate Avg: 103.33 from 6 (2/6 below 100, 1/6 120+)
2019 Interstate Avg: 101.6 from 5 (2/5 below 100, 2/5 120+)
2018 Wins Avg: 103.58 from 12 (2/12 below 100, 3/12 120+)
2019 Wins Avg: 110.91 from 11 (4/11 below 100, 6/11 120+)
2018 Losses Avg: 96.5 from 10 (5/10 below 100, 1/10 120+)
2019 Losses Avg: 102.44 from 9 (4/9 below 100)

The only score below 120 against the Dockers since the start of his premium scoring history occurred last season in Rd2 (suffered a concussion affected 17 in RD1 2018 in the match prior).

@Connoisseur

I know it's the wrong thread for this but I'm forward planning ATM and would also be interested in Gawn v Goldy for next week if I'm not being too over burdening. The difference between the two this week is like $100 and might shape my trade plans ...
T Goldstein:
Avg VS Melb since 2011: 134.63 from 8 (low of 57 and a high of 172, 1/8 below 100, 6/8 120+)
Last 3 VS Melb: 121.33 from 3 (low of 57 and a high of 172, 1/3 below 100, 2/3 120+)

M Gawn:
Avg VS NM since 2015: 120 from 4 (low of 80 and a high of 172, 1/4 below 100, 1/4 120+)
Last 3 VS NM: 133.33 from 3 (low of 111 and a high of 172, 1/3 120+)

Jesus I have a Gawn or Grundy v Goldy matchup coming up next week in my GF. That’s not looking appealing...

Surprised he scores that well against Melbourne. Is that huge game in Launceston where they both scored 160-170 odd a fair booster?

B Grundy for RD23:
Avg VS Ess since 2016: 101.67 from 6 (low of 54 and a high of 155, 3/6 below 100, 2/6 120+)
Last 3 VS Ess: 134 from 3 (low of 113 and a high of 155, 2/3 120+)

All 3 key rucks are averaging 120+ in their last 3 encounters with Goldy boasting the highest vs avg across their premium scoring history (95+).

Anybody think that Jacobs and O'Brien can limit Grundy's output ? Lycett and Ryder did, Lycett and Vardy last year didn't and Mumford and Simpson didn't this year.

O'Brien and Jacobs are probably better as a ruck duo than the eagles and giants combos and are close to the Lycett and Ryder combo in quality.

Might be boring going Gawn Vc today vs Alir Alir, everyone will take his score, so no actual advantage vs your league opponent. Might go Danger into Fyfe.

It's only an advantage if your alternative VC does better. No point trying to be different in this situation I don't think. Perfect conditions tonight for Gawn to go 150+.

Gambling on a PoD in Zorko after Gawn's slightly under par 119.

This is calculated as when Zorko scores 117 every other option I have is going to 160+ to make me regret picking Zorko, but it's worth the trade-off as otherwise they'd just go 115.

Was Gawn into Grundy but given the lateness of the season and my inability to be at the game today am letting heart rule head and going over to the supercoach site to make Cripps my C in his milestone game, also have just read the article in todays HS about how he felt the week Bolts was sacked and hope that he rises to the occasion again.

Need a big win to get back some % after Sydneys big win last night in the probably vain attempt to move Adelaides pick from us to number 4

Without double checking I think this is my 1st time giving the captaincy duties to P Cripps. Hopefully he can arrest his run since RD8 of following a ton with a score below 100 otherwise it will be my 1st captain this season to score under 100.

Not worried about Jack Steele on Cripps?
