Round 17 – Last Minute Captain

Hey Guys, Baker here with your hot tips for captain in Round 17. This round is gonna be bloody. The top eight are playing each other in a blockbuster weekend. Cats vs Bombers Friday, Pies vs Hawks Saturday and Eagles vs Crows the cream of the crop. This round has it all and gives us a wide choice on who may be a great pick for the big C this week.


Below is a list of my top five possible candidates:

  1. D. Swan – Hawks
  2. J. Watson – Cats
  3. G. Ablett – Lions
  4. M. Boyd – Blues
  5. S. Thompson – Eagles

You could go either one of these guns this week. I reckon it’s gonna be a big weekend of individual scores. No team will want to drop points this week and let the others jump ahead in the race for the flag.


If you were ever going to make a rookie your captain, this could be the only week you could do it. Dane Zorko has had an unbelievable first season and has the biggest increase from $104,200 to currently sitting on $439,100 with a breakeven of 44. He could have a monster this week with the Lions taking on the Suns at Metricon Stadium in Q Clash 4. With all the “argi bargi” in the media about the Daniel Rich graffiti on the Suns website, I think there’s going to be some fireworks.


This week I’m going with Swan. He should run free against the Hawks and he is always capable of a big score.


Good luck with your choice coaches!
