The Giants are yet to beat the Eagles but this may be their best chance yet. The Saints have a glimmer of hope to play finals with a win against the Swans. Port and Melbourne close it out which looks to be a very intriguing contest. Top 4 and top 8 are nowhere near set, there’s a lot to play for and clubs will be putting there bodies on the line this weekend.

Hammer – Jack Gunston (Haw) $8,700
Gunston has been in good form all year and is a key part to why the Hawks are top of the ladder. Booting 44 goals this season and also averaging 16 touches, 7 marks and 3 tackles and fantasy form of 108.7. His last month has been consistent with scores of 99, 96, 131, 125. With Thompson out for the Roos, Gunston may be a chance for a big haul.
Biscuit – Isaac Heeney (Syd) $6,400
Finally bacon favour with he coach and back in form scoring 106 fp, averaging 15 touches, 4 marks, and 4 tackles not to mention kicking 23 goals. Last week Heeney managed to rack up 2.2, 25 touches, 8 marks, and 5 tackles scoring 135 after coming off 111 fp the week before.
ATM – Max Gawn (Melb) $9,700
The Beard is my banker this week, form of 127, avg 111, 14 touches, 4 marks, 4 tackles and 43 hit outs. Last week notching up 1.2, 16 disposals, 11 marks, 5 tackles and 41 H/O scoring 159. Against Trengove, Gawn will look to dominate this game in the ruck and around the ground.
Hammer – Dan Hannebery (Syd) $9,200
Back to some good from, scoring 119 fp. Hannebery has also been averaging 31 touches, 3 marks and 5 tackles. Last week in the wet he managed 36 touches, 5 marks and 4 tackles scoring 134 fp, backing up from 143 fp the week before. with attention now going to Parker and Kennedy, He may find himself free and open more often.
Hammer – Patrick Cripps (Carl) $8,800
In great form of 121 fp. Also averaging 26 touches, 3 marks and 6 tackles, His month has been second to none, scoring 131, 98, 134, 120 and last week nothing up 2.2, 34 touches, 6 marks and 6 tackles. With a struggling lions midfield, Cripps can have a filed day.
Biscuit – David Armitage (Stk) $7,200
Avg 85 this season, has been quiet of late after a sensational start to the year. Avg 21 touches, 3 marks and 6 tackles and been underrated amongst option teams. last week scoring 1.0, 18 touches, 4 marks, and 7 tackles scoring 91 fp. I think he’s due for a big game, the solid body will suit his game against the contestant Swans, Steven tone tagged more than likely by Mitchell. Worth a crack i think.
Hammer – Sam Docherty (Carl) $9,400
Docherty has been a shinning light for the Blues this year. Helping you Simpson extremely with his run out the back and marking in packs. Averaging 24 touches, 8 marks and 3 tackles with form of 117 fp and avg 106 fp. Last week having 30 touches, 8 marks and 4 tackles scoring 124 fp. He’s playing his old teams and will want to prove his worth for sure. High price tag but does deliver.
Biscuit – Aliir Aliir (Syd) $4,500
This young defender has taken the role of Teddy Richards and has done amazingly, form of 71 fp, averaging 14 touches, 4 marks, and 2 tackles in juts a handful of games. Last week having one of his better games of his career with 18 touches, 3 marks and 2 tackles scoring 60fp, coming off 80 fp the week before. Cheap option down back who can score reasonably.
