A return to the traditional Friday night fixture to begin round 6 with the Giants hosting the Sainters at Manuka Oval! I look forward to braving the brisk conditions to watch these two sides in action. Despite no Thursday game, there are still plenty of great early vice-captain options!

Quickfire Captains

Others to consider: Andrew Brayshaw, Jack Macrae, Ben Keays, Josh Dunkley

Final Thoughts

Five rounds down, 18 to go! Chances are you’ll be running with several red dots and a forced trade or two… but you know what they say – adversity brings opportunity. Right about now is generally when I have one eye on the byes… after this week we will have 10 trades prior to round 12 – use them wisely! Make sure you keep an eye out for final team announcements across the weekend at: https://www.afl.com.au/matches/team-lineups?GameWeeks=6

Cheers legends and bring on round 6!
