AFL Teams for Round 23 of the 2011 Premiership Season
With finals just 2 weeks away the 8 is all but set and teams are starting to look at sending players off for surgery or for those in the 8, they are looking at if some of their guys could possibly do with a one week rest before the finals begin. The Dockers have been hammered by injuries all year and it could hit a head this week when Mark Harvey has predicted that there could be up to 7 players miss this week. The biggest of those names, and most important to all important Fantasy players (i.e. DreamTeam and SuperCoach) are Pavlich, Mundy and Broughton. Ballantyne, McPhee, Silvagni and Grover are the other 4 to join them. Pav has gone for surgery and Broughton may miss the rest of the season. You would have to think that Sandilands could be sent off to get his toe 100% right ready for preseason training. Fantasy coaches may get some join with the return of Lower who had the last weekend off.
Collingwood are flying to Perth as I write this and the feeling is that there will be some missing. Seems that Swan, Thomas and Pendlebury have all made the trip but the reporter at the airport didn’t see Travis Cloke amoungst the players boarding the plane. Chris Dawes looks likely to return this week along with Leon Davis and Andrew Krakouer. West Coast have suggested that there could be players that have niggles could be rested. Some thought to be in doubt are Daniel Kerr and Dean Cox, although the later is reported to want to continue to play.
Other minor updates below and the all important teams in at about 5pm.
- No Update at the moment but don’t forget to check out the Coaches Box AFL DreamTeam and SuperCoach podcast for this week. We discussed possible players to replace those missing.
- Thursday 2:24pm: Word is that Dean Cox is on his way to Brisbane so will play. Jacob Brennan on his way too but Jack Darling and Daniel Kerr will miss the game as they didn’t make the trip. Could be a danger game for the Eagles.
- Thursday 4:22pm: There had been talk that Nick Riewoldt might miss, but it seems he is fit and firing to go.
- Thursday 4:41pm: Hawks twitter reporting that Shane Savage will be back in this week (which will please my son no end as he has the number 21 on his jumper).
- Thurday 5pm: Full teams are in
- Friday 12:30pm: Michael Ross will replace Ricky Dyson from the Bombers selected 25 man squad.
- Friday 12:31pm: Nothing official, but if you have Sam Mitchell in your DreamTeam/SuperCoach side, I would make sure to have cover.
- Friday 5:30pm: Friday teams have been named but I would expect a number of late changes this weekend.
