Most teams scored heavily as Hawthorn had the bye and the Hawks aren't popular in SC this year, meaning lots of teams were at full-strength. The same should be expected this week, with Port Adelaide having their final bye and the Power being one of the worst SC teams in the league.
One team that rarely gets a Schon's Shout is North Melbourne, and in the final game of the round on the weekend they had Petrie, Wells, Swallow, Harvey and Ziebell spit out some massive scores.
Speaking of Jack Ziebell, it seems the hugely talented youngster has had his breakthrough game, with 41 possessions against the Bulldogs. A credit to him I reckon, considering he has broken his leg twice. I'll definately consider him next year, and if like me, you are already preparing for SC2012, put him on your list as well.
And speaking of next year; the AFL fixture will revert back to 22 rounds and no byes - fantasy football heaven!
As for the pre-season competition, you can work that one out for yourself.
I just hope you had some luck with the whole Heath Shaw incident last week; my cousin traded him in and then an hour later the press comference was called. Daylight robbery. Dave's Rave is about the unfortunate issue this week, and he'll give you some trade options on Shaw tomorrow in Trade Winds.
Best of luck for the eighteenth round of season 2011, and keep shouting!
