AFL Teams – Round 8, 2011 – Thanks Ump Round

Teams

Round 8, 2011 sees the AFL launch “Thanks Ump Round” and even as a one-eyed Hawks support, I have to say that the Umps do an amazing job considering the pressures that they are under (even if they still hate Buddy).

But what about the teams. There will be interesting selection decisions both forced through injury and suspension and via poor performance. The most public place for injury and possibly suspension is at Melbourne. The most public is the fact that Jack Trengove (at time of writting) is facing the prospect of missing the next 3 weeks due to suspension. He is appealing his suspension and will be named tonight as the appeal won’t be finished before the appeal is heard. If he isn’t successful, Melbourne will have until midday Friday to update their team with a replacement. If he stays suspended, this will mean they will be missing their two 1st picks from the 2009 draft (as Scully is still injured). On top of this, they announced during the week that they will be missing their All-Australian Ruckman, Mark Jamar for a month and the options to replace him could be limited!  Jake Spencer (knee), Jack Fitzpatrick (foot) and Stefan Martin (ribs) were all in line to replace him but are injured, although Martin could overcome his to play. Ex-Hawk Premiership ruckman/rookie lister Rob Campbell is still making his way back from injury and is unlikely to be considered. Giant Max Gawn is a left field chance to be thrown to the fire. The other major injury was the loss of Jack Grimes for the season with a serious foot injury.

The big game of the round is Friday night Footy when the two undefeated teams, Geelong and Collingwood face each other. Collingwood look like to still be missing Darren Jolly but the Cats look likely to get back captain Cameron Ling and x-factor up forward Steve Johnson. Crows injury list that is already long welcomes Scott Thompson and Patty Dangerfield to its list. Both will face a test inorder to play this week. In the near future, they could welcome back fantasy favorite, Ian Callinan, who is ahead of schedule and could make his debut shortly.

There are more players in the mix, but we are really waiting on the teams to be named. The initial teams will be up today at 5pm and the Sunday squads will be trimmed down on Friday at 5pm. I will also bring you any updates I hear over the course of the weekend starting from the second I hit publish. So come back soon and remember that you can get back to the Teams area of the sites just by remembering the following URL: http://bit.ly/aflteams! Who are you interested in and why?
