AFL Round 17 My Team of Surprise Packets

This team consists of players that achieved more than I thought they would in the AFL in round 17.

B: Heath Shaw (Giants), Dane Rampe (Swans), Shannon Hurn (Eagles)
HB: Wayne Milera (Crows), Aliir Aliir (Swans), Jayden Short (Tigers)
C: Rory Atkins (Crows), Zac Fisher (Blues), Cameron Rayner (Lions)
HF: Jack Billings (Saints), Tom Lynch (Crows), Josh Dunkley (Bulldogs)
FF: Willie Rioli (Eagles), Tom Hawkins (Cats), Alex Neal-Bullen (Demons)
Foll: Scott Lycett (Eagles), Jarrod Berry (Lions), Kyle Langford (Bombers)
Int: Rowan Marshall (Saints), Josh Walker (Lions), Luke Dunstan (Saints), Kyle Cheney (Crows)

Backs: Heath Shaw played a quality game as he accumulate thirty possessions. Dane Rampe, Shannon Hurn, Wayne Milera, Aliir Aliir and Jayden Short all created run out of defense. Aliir and Short managed to go forward and hit the scoreboard as well.

Midfielders: Rory Atkins proved that he deserved his spot in the Crows team with a good performance. Zac Fisher kicked a good goal and played a reasonable game for the Blues. Cameron Rayner played a reasonable game for the Lions.

Forwards: Jack Billings collected the most disposals he has for the season with an impressive thirty and hit the scoreboard on two occasions. Tom Lynch showed why he is an important player structurally for the Crows. Josh Dunkley played a good game for the Bulldogs winning plenty of the ball. Willie Rioli kicked three important goals for the Eagles. Tom Hawkins nailed four goals for the Cats. Alex Neal-Bullen was probably the biggest surprise packet for the round with two goals.

Followers: Scott Lycett went it alone in the ruck for much of the game due to an injury to the Eagles number one ruckman Nic Naitainui suffering an injury to his knee. Jarrod Berry played his role well for the team. Kyle Langford produced his best performance statistically for the season.

Interchange: Rowan Marshall hit the scoreboard on a couple of occasions against the Blues. Josh Walker took some important marks for the Lions. Luke Dunstan played possibly his best game for the season. Kyle Cheney may become a regular part of the Crows team if he continues to play the way he did in round 17.
