AFL Teams for Round 18, 2010

So we are 5 weeks out from finals but next week sees the start of DreamTeam and SuperCoach finals. The big worry from those coaches is will the top teams start to rest players. I think you can almost guarntee that the Cats will rest some players (that or the General Soreness (wonder if he works for Corporal Punishment)) in the next few weeks and the Saints rested players last year as well. Collingwood don’t have a history of resting players but nor have they been in a position to do so either. The Bulldogs have a sort of tricky run and if they slip the Hawks & Dockers are ready to pounce. The Hawks are still a chance of going out of the bottom of the the 8 if things go south so you can hardly see them resting players.

That leaves the Dockers! I don’t think they are in a position to rest players with them trying to deal with a number of injuries, not least Michael Barlow’s but the word from the media that have seen them play is that Pav and 211 (aka Aaron Sandilands) is that they both look like they need a rest. You couldn’t see it this week but I have a strange feeling that the Dockers, before things went a stray, may have been eyeing off the Round 21 match against the Hawks as the game to rest Sandilands.  It will be interesting to see how that develops.

The other interesting selection for Fantasy Players (in my mind anyway) is the jPod at Geelong. There is talk that he is struggling physically and maybe rested this week. If that happens, don’t be suprised if the fantasy coaches pile onto Nick Riewoldt in a big way!

Anyway, I guess now we wait till 5pm for the announcement of the teams!

UPDATE:

Friday 5pm: Sunday final teams in.

Friday 4:25pm: Presti out of the Collingwood side replaced by Nathan Brown. Neil Craig also reported that Phil Davis will not come in this week.

Thursday 5pm: All teams in now! Who are you missing from your Dream Team/SuperCoach sides?

Thursday 4:54pm: Also reported that Bartel out as well. Rested possibly? 😎

Thursday 4:50pm: First team in is the Bombers with David Hille back. Bad news out of Geelong is, as mentioned above, jPod out for this weeks game.
