AFL Teams for Round 22 of the 2011 Premiership Season
Another week and another coach give the chop. The Bulldogs biggest out will be coach Rodney Eade out, Interim coach Paul Williams in. Along with this, Adam Cooney is done for the year and will go do whatever is possible to his knee to try to get it right. The Dogs being one lose away from being totally out of the running for finals will likely send others. One that has to worry some Fantasy Coaches that may still have him in their sides is Shuan Higgins. There has been talk for sometime that he could be out to pasture as the Dogs prepare for next year. One of the things to prepare for next year is to look at the kids and they have signalled that Father-and-Son selecetion, Ayce Cordy, will make his debut in this round.
The big match for the weekend sees the 3rd place Hawks take on the 4th place Blues. The Blues have the tough choice of whether to bring back there star fullback Michael Jamison in the seniors or in the reserves. Word is that he has done everything right at training but he has missed a long period of the season and so might be better to find his touch via the VFL. They won’t get back Jarryd Waite as he suffered a setback during the week. The Hawks have a few players starting to return and push up via the VFL. Shane Savage played in a return match there on the weekend. Did set the world on fire, but could be considered. One that did play well and would be considered unlucky to lose his AFL sport is Kyle Cheeney. He is putting the pressure on those in the team. Word is that forgot hawks Ruckman, Brent Renouf, will return to the VFL after missing a big chunk of time. Jordan Lisle kicked goals on the weekend but there seems no spot for him while Hale and Buddy play up forward and Schoenmakers is preferred down back.
And the news up North is that Ablett is set to return to the AFL for the Suns. Hang on, hasn’t he played all season for the Sons? No, silly, Nathan Ablett! With Zac Smith (rested) and Thomas Lynch (injury) likely to miss this week, NAblett will get his chance to return to the AFL for the new team to play again aside his brother and now captain, Gary. Word is that he has returned from injury and played well in lower grades for the Suns. We should also note that the Suns first player to retire has happened with Daniel Harris retiring due to ongoing injuries.
