  1. for the life of me i don’t know how Ryan Byrnes (dragons) keeps getting overlooked for these teams
    along with Trent Bianco(chargers) they were the top two rated players last week with 39 and 40 touches and made the TAC team of the week
    If you had seen Ryans games lately you’d be scratching your head too
    Also Corey Watts (dragons)full back all season and yet to be beaten

    1. Unfortunately not, Russ. But we will be tweeting through AFL Draft Central and provide match reports and scouting notes tomorrow.
