Weekly wrap: Round 19 studs, duds, injuries

Check out our Round 19 AFL SuperCoach wrap, including the stars and strugglers, injured brigade, and suspensions.

AFL

A round that started with a draw, finished with a goal after the siren, and had multiple games decided by last minute sealers sprinkled in between, there was really not much more we could ask for.

How good is footy?

Answer: SO GOOD.

SuperCoach wise, it could’ve been better, I guess.

This week I scored 2321, which while it has a nice ring to it, ultimately brought me down 154 spots to 7,243rd.

George Hewett as a late out hurt me dearly, and now I’m hearing things that he’s no certainty to come back this week.

Oh well, it was an exciting weekend for sure, let’s get into the wrap!

Richmond v Fremantle

A DRAW!!

My heart goes out to third gamer, and now off the bubble, Noah Cumberland (72), who played on with just a couple seconds left. If you’re looking for a rookie, I’ve got him second on my list of blokes to pick up.

Nick Vlastuin (118) continues to score well, but Jayden Short (76) remains as a shadow of his former self.

Hayden Young (139) and Luke Ryan (128) were sensational in defence, taking a massive 25 marks between them.

Will Brodie (95) was good again, and with Nat Fyfe probably out for the next couple weeks, he should continue to score well if his tank holds up.

Andrew Brayshaw (79) was my VC over the weekend, and ultimately flopped. He still had 28 touches and 7 tackles, so expect him to bounce back this week.

Injuries – Ben Miller (unknown), Nat Fyfe (hamstring)

Reports – nil.

North Melbourne v Hawthorn

Three in a row for my Hawks!! #2023finals?

Aaron Hall (119 was a late inclusion for the Roos and he absolutely dominated.

Luke Davies-Uniacke (104) tonned up for the fourth game in a row, and Jack Zieball (88) got some cheap footy toward the end.

Jy Simpkin (26) looked worse than I did on Sunday morning.

In consecutive weeks, two of Hawthorns old boys have turned back the clock and kicked a bag of goals! This time, it was Jack Gunston (136) who kicked 5.4.

Jai Newcombe (124) and Tom Mitchell (125) racked up 30 and 32 disposals respectively, while Dylan Moore (124) continues to develop as a midfielder.

Injuries – nil.

Reports – nil.

Sydney v Adelaide

Another spirited three-quarter effort by the Crows, but the Swans were just too good in the end.

Callum Mills (97) and Luke Parker (98) were solid, but Chad Warner (110) continues to take his game to another level week in, week out. This was his fourth ton in a row.

Dylan Stephens (115) was monumental, but Tom Papley (127) was arguably best on thanks to 22 touches and two goals.

Isaac Heeney (106) also had a large impact on the game, with two goals and 10 tackles.

The midfield trio of Rory Laird (140), Sam Berry (140), and Ben Keays (110) is slowly starting to become one of the best in terms of SuperCoach scoring. Particularly Laird, who has an unheard of five-round average of 141. Since Round 11, he hasn’t dropped under 114, all while grabbing six 125+ games.

Jordan Dawson (93) got off to a slow start but thankfully managed to pick it up later into the game.

Injuries – Shane McAdam (corkie)

Reports – nil.

Port Adelaide v Geelong

Oh Port, Port, Port… So close… So far. I hope you have a lovely early holiday!

Karl Amon (94) was monstrous with 25 touches, 13 marks, and a goal.

Travis Boak (103) was solid once again, but Ollie Wines (66) struggled yet again. The only positive to come out of Wines’ season is that next year, he should be cheapy cheap.

Zac Butters (106) and Connor Rozee (91) kept their good form going.

The two Tom’s had an unbelievable night, with Tom Atkins (117) and Tom Hawkins (141) going bananas; particularly the Tomahawk who kicked the sealer from outside 50.

Cameron Guthrie (83) is putting his hand up for the worst trade in of the decade, thanks Cammy ya legend!!

Joel Selwood (49) and Patrick Dangerfield (24) were relatively non-existent.

Injuries –Dan Houston (concussion), Rhys Stanley (knee)

Reports – nil.

Brisbane v Gold Coast

The Q-Clash sure delivered, with Brisbane likely shutting the door on the Suns’ finals chances.

Charlie Cameron (98) was at the heart of it with three goals, while Hugh McCluggage (106), Lachie Neale (123), and Jarryd Lyons (98) dominated the midfield.

Dayne Zorko (103) was solid and showed no signs of his hammy that was seemingly hanging on by a thread, but Daniel Rich (71) left the field early after getting concussed.

Jarrod Witts (86) absolutely murdered his counterpart in the ruck, but a 50% disposal efficiency saw his score heavily impacted.

Touk Miller (157) was for lack of a better word, ridiculous… 34 touches + 7 tackles = PIG.

Alongside Touk, Noah Anderson (135) racked up 31 touches and his third 130+ score in his last four games.

Elijah Hollands (64) made his long awaited debut and certainly delivered in his first game, kicking two goals and surely doing enough to keep his spot for next week.

Injuries – Daniel Rich (concussion), Charlie Ballard (knee)

Reports – nil.

Western Bulldogs v Melbourne

DOGGIES DOGGIES DOGGIES! BARK BARK BARK!

What. A. Win.

Marcus Bontempelli (161), take a bow you absolute star. 26 touches, 9 tackles, 1.2, and 10 clearances on his way to second massive score in a row.

Tim English (122) was back to his best in the ruck, as was Bailey Smith (113) in the middle.

Bailey Dale (105) was great, while Jack Macrae (95), Adam Treloar (95), and Tom Liberatore (92) were all ok, however Josh Dunkley (67) was atrocious yet again.

Jamarrah Ugle-Hagan (93) played the best game of his career, kicking five goals, and ultimately the sealer from outside 50 in the pocket.

Max Gawn (147) is BACK! It looked like he was well and truly the #1 ruck on the day, exemplified by his 40 hit-outs, compared to Jackson’s measly 11.

Angus Brayshaw (122) was great off halfback, Clayton Oliver (96) and Christian Petracca (81) struggled.

Steven May (109) continues to tick along if you’re looking for a safe option down back.

Injuries – Adam Treloar (calf)

Reports – nil.

Carlton v GWS

Patrick Cripps (118) lead his team to a hugeeee win, and this was his first ton in six games!! Is he back?? I’m not sure… I can’t trust him anymore.

Adam Saad (136) and Sam Docherty (73) were both great, as they combined for 22 marks.

Matthew Kennedy (120) and Sam Walsh (111) had 27 and 31 touches respectively, while Charlie Curnow (112) booted four goals.

Tim Taranto (113) was brilliant all day long, as was his midfield counterpart, Stephen Coniglio (106).

Brayden Preuss (85) was back in the ruck and dominated poor little Tom De Koning.

Harry Himmelberg (130) was sensational once again and is for sure making a case for trade in of the season. @camguthrie, THAT’S how you should reward your coaches.

Jacob Wehr (65) provided some serviceable cover for George Hewett owners

Injuries – nil.

Reports – nil.

Collingwood v Essendon

JAMIE ELLIOT FROM DOWN TOWNNNNNNNNN!!

What a crazy, crazy game.  The Pies came from absolutely nowhere with 10 minutes to go to steal the win from the Bombers and poor Harrison Jones (CHOKE).

Collingwood were pretty much SuperCoach irrelevant in this game, with not one single player tonning up.

Nick Daicos (79) was solid in a tough game for the youngster, as was Taylor Adams (86) and Scott Pendlebury (79).

Jack Crisp (81) was disappointing yet again, and now looms as one of my highest trade out priorities.

Josh Daicos (90) decided to stop playing footy for 30 seconds, and instead took up basketball to produce a certain Goal of the Year contender.

Zach Merrett (133) was amazing but is also making me cry myself to sleep every night for choosing Cam Guthrie over him.

Dyson Heppell (114) was solid on the wing, as was Mason Redman (49) at half back up until he got absolutely killed in a marking contest. With him likely to miss this week, it paves the way for a Massimooooo D’Ambrosioooooo return.

Injuries – Brayden Maynard (shoulder), Mason Redman (soreness)

Suspensions – nil.

West Coast v St Kilda

All in all, a totally irrelevant game here, but the Saints managed to keep their top-8 chances alive with a crucial win at Optus Stadium.

I don’t think there’s a whole lot of point talking about the Eagles in any great depth, so I’ll make this quick.

Jack Redden (96) was good, Liam Duggan (89) looked great, Tom Barrass (132) was monstrous for the second game in a row, Jai Culley (76) was solid in his second game and is definitely the #1 rookie option.

Tim Kelly (11) was also completely and utterly shut DOWN.

Nice!

Jack Steele (143) probably played one of the best games of his career, with 40 touches, 10 marks, 8 tackles, and 11 clearances.

Many rightfully though that the man above would have a detrimental effect on Brad Crouch (147), but wowee nope!!

Rowan Marshall (88) was alright, but I’m sure his owners were hoping for more. If you’ve got Darcy Cameron, a straight swap to Rowan is a no-brainer.

Jack Sinclair (117) continues to impress, as does Marcus Windhager (74) who managed to restrict Tim Kelly to just four touches.

Injuries – Jade Gresham (knee), Jack Billings (back)

Reports – nil.
