Rowell is a contested possession monster. All a tag is going to do is ensure all of the points he scores are those sweeter contested possy points :thumbsu:
Although I do agree in regards to Rowell 105+ ave, do you know how they judge a cp? You dont get them because you have somebody close to you.

Not specifically Rowell related, but...

Do the new rules mean less stoppages - less clearances - potentially less contested possessions?
Probably less possessions full stop given teams will want to just go...
Good news for good users who aren't necessarily known for their in and under work?
Gaff is looking better to me by the day. (Macrae, Bont...??)

You are hopefully right from a viewing perspective. I have faith in the coaches to find a way to slow it again though.

Both Lachie Neale and Patrick Dangerfield had interrupted preseason's and I would love to know are you going to upgrade to them both later on or starting one of them or starting with both them???

I was never starting him even before the groin. Can usually pick him up cheaper and everything points a slow start for him.
He said he was a month behind in preparation to where he'd like to be .....a corked calf doesn't allow him to run enough to catchup

I kept getting tempted to bring him in for Heeney ......but this report gives me comfort, that waiting is the right move

Currently in love with this set up. M1 through to M5 have been pretty durable in their careers, really only losing time to the odd serious injury as opposed to soft tissue. I'll be surprised if Taranto and Worpel don't end up averaging over 100 this year. I feel like Worps could explode. He's fending off blokes left right and centre in the Hawks match sims and can suddenly kick goals from outside 50 as evidenced against West Coast last season. Becoming a fully-rounded midfielder and about to hit his prime age bracket. Those boys with good seasons could end up as great points of difference at M7 and M8 come years end.

Neale currently an upgrade target. His starting absence facilitates a 3 premium deep defence with a mid-pricer and a 3 premium deep forward line.

I don't see Powell playing much AFL footy this year.

If LDU is a permanent mid (I don't watch a lot of North) I'll definitely see if i can get the funds to have him at M6 over a Heppel, Caldwell or Hately. What have his issues in the past been? I'm assuming injuries.

Only basing that selection off something I read today (may have been Cal Twomey but don't quote me) stating that Powell looked more likely for round 1 than Phillips. Poor information?
