This is the round I consider the ‘culling round’ – as it’s the round that many of the rookies that we got in Round 1 will be maxing out. This means that their break-even is approaching their average. It’s around the time we should see a transformation in our teams as we prepare for bye-rounds and we trade out the rookies in our starting line-ups.

Defenders

Lachie Whitfield has dropped out of the list – not because I don’t see him as a Top 6 Defender (by years end). But simply because he hasn’t played in the last 2 rounds. He has been replaced with James Sicily.

Jack Macrae has fallen out of the mid-fielders after another sub-100 round, along with Matt Crouch after his injury-affected 53. In are Clayton Oliver and Mitch Duncan who have both been on fire in recent rounds.

Forwards

Jeremy Cameron’s 47 (after soreness from being pushed into the fence) sees him dropping out, and replaced with the now in-form Josh Dunkley. Mitch Robinson has continued his recent good form and is a real point-of-difference with only 1% of other coaches having him.
