    A very new group for this year's lucky find with only 30 of the 75 players having played in 2017 and of those 30, only 20 played 4 or more games. Who will emerge the favourite? Will we see another rising star like McGrath and Greenwood did, or will a recycled player prove themselves like Martin or Scully? Stay tuned to find out.

    Most of the high scoring players on the bench this week, then again this is round 1 and most of the players were untested so this is to be expected. Oddly, McVeigh had a quiet game by his standards and still got a vote. In what could be his last season, it's hard not to draw Lenny Hayes comparisons.

    Great work @HOLKY
    Good to see the lucky find back again.

    I'm wondering if we need a variation on this: the "lucky bugger". This would be the most points scored for a team, by a player taken with the lowest possible pick!

    Tim Kelly already setting records with a pair of 5s to start the season, Tomlinson missed the votes last week but got the call-up this week and McVeigh showed good signs of form.

    Not much more I can say about Kelly, 3 games into his career and already amazing. Castagna was too busy winning in the Ruck to poll here.

    Castagna seems to score more when he's not trying to be a ruckman... mind you, he's a decent ruckman.

    McVeigh and Castagna in great form while Tim Kelly seems to have petered off after an early start.

    Looks to be Kelly vs McVeigh for the main chase, still early though so the others are still in it.

    It's often the little things, there was 4 points separating getting 3 votes from missing the votes and another 4 players 5 points or less behind that.

    Hmmm...with three players listed did I draft well or do I have an over reliance on the new boys? :rolleyes:

    McVeigh's 5 brings him right back in it with 1 game between himself and Kelly.
