Another traditional Friday night fixture to kick off round 7 with the glorified traffic cones taking on the Tigers at Optus… I can’t see many blokes putting their hand up as an early VC option in this game but with the rolling lockout we have flexibility and are spoilt for choice!

Quickfire Captains

Others to consider: Josh Dunkley, Patrick Cripps, Jayden Short, Jack Crisp, Christian Petracca.

Team Selections – Round 7

And whaddaya know… after the early news of Grundy out for 10-12 weeks, Thursday night team selections have done nothing to soften the blow! Chances are you’ve been stitched up with some carnage with Tristan Xerri out for up to a month with a foot injury and George Hewett now confirmed out for hopefully just the 1-2 weeks after he sustained a corked calf. Combine these with rookies doing sweet FA on your bench and there is a recipe for a challenging week ahead.

Final Thoughts

Yup… we’ve got some larger than life bullets to deal with in the ruck department… however, adversity brings out the best in many of us – question is, are you and your squad up for it? Be sure to keep up to date with the final teams over at: https://www.afl.com.au/matches/team-lineups?GameWeeks=7 At least we know about Hewett now as opposed to 10 minutes before the first bounce!

Cheers legends and bring on round 7!
