Think I might have found him

Charlie Comben Ruc/Fwd Nth Melb.

Had a look at Nth's fixture and there's only 3 games till round 23 where he can't be used as a C loophole with Gawn/Grundy.
Round 9 where The Pies play at 1;10 and the Dees v Crows at 3;20 on the Sunday, so maybe non playing Crow?
Round 12 Where Pies play the Dees on the Monday
and round 19

Lockity Lock for me.
Yep, mentioned Comben as the best bench option in the second post in the topic.

My three starting rucks are locked in as soon as SC opens, wish the other three lines were so easy.

Grundy with the security of a signed 7 year contract can slack off now and average *only* 115 in the first part of the season, which will be matched by NN. When Nic misses one he'll be a straight swap to Brodie. #dreaming

No that's incorrect, his contract is performance based around his supercoach output I'm led to believe over the next 7 years.

You really need to chase these numbers - bring some consiistency in and add Neale, Cripps and we already know Dangerfield can reach those heights so unfortunatley there is a large chunk of my salary gone in the starting team.
120+'s (2018-2019):
B Grundy: 29/44 (65.91%)
M Gawn: 27/43 (62.79%)
J Macrae: 23/41 (56.10%)
P Dangerfield: 20/42 (47.62%)
N Fyfe: 19/35 (54.29%)
P Cripps: 18/42 (42.86%)
L Neale: 17/44 (38.64%)

So good to have guys like you @Connoisseur that can deliver the stats to support or debunk theories here, I'll be starting 6 also @Darkie - the challenge is if I can get 7 in there.

Neale's % no doubt will increase, Fyfe depends on games played and his fitness - I think Danger is one who might come back with some big numbers this year and that's just a gut feeling.

Thanks. Always happy to help. Any other players you're interested in regarding the 120+'s ? (as all of the above were ones you mentioned or in the tweet above by Fantasy Freako)

Josh Kelly is the obvious one, he can go big and consitantly put good numbers together but I think fitness is a concern. He's one fully fit I'd expect would be pushing 55% but due injury probably closer to 40%

Oliver maybe if he builds on his 2018 form but last year was a worry.

Bont could go another level, he knows how to go 120+

Someone from WCE might see good numbers, Yeo last season had a slow start to the season I thought becuase of injury in the pre-season but adding TKelly might shake things up.

Agree with this.. I might be biased but Yeo feels like he’s about to explode.... TK might rob him of the extra mid time he needs though

2017: 28.80%
2018: 29.45%

HTA stats currently unavailable for 2019.

From memory possess a high amount of sharked hitouts with the average HTA displayed above which means he is dependent on his work around the ground (disposals, marks, etc) which has tailed off in the past couple of seasons, to post a respectable/worthy average.

Disposals avg since 2018: 11.74
SC Avg when disposals equal/exceed 12: 96.92 from 13
SC Avg when disposals below 12: 70.57 from 14

Sorry guys, haven't been as active for afl preseason. Anyone considering Marshall again should think twice. Ratten on radio station sen1116 stated Marshall and Ryder will spend a 50/50 split between ruck and forward. Maybe Marshall can become a beast up forward whilst resting, in conjunction with Ratts game plan??

For a bloke of his size, Marshall is such a skillful overhead mark - wouldn't surprise at all to see him dominate playing forward.
