Well, Joel Smith was shaping up as a fine Rising Star candidate 20 mins into his season...

I have hopes for the Riddler, but looks like that'll be next year too.

I'd love to see Corey Wagner step up.

Round 1

Rising Star

The first rising star nomination for 2017 came out of Seoul where they're planning a #Caleb2Caleb succession plan, and it's off to a good start with Caleb Marchbank pumping out a very nice 97 to take the honours in the first week of the season.

Team of the Week

D: Rory Laird (Pacific), Jason Johannisen (Tokyo), Steven May (Moscow), Heath Shaw (Mexico City)
M: Dustin Martin [VC] (Dublin), Dyson Heppell (Moscow), Scott Pendlebury (Toronto), Marc Murphy (New Delhi)
R: Max Gawn (Berlin)
F: Josh J Kennedy [C] (New York), Elliot Yeo (Rio de Janeiro), Lance Franklin (Berlin), Jesse Hogan (Moscow)
I: Patrick Dangerfield (Seoul), Tom Rockliff (Mexico City)

Round 2

Rising Star

For the second week of the season, Tokyo gets to party as Sam Powell-Pepper produced the goods and delivered a 92 which really showed what he's capable of and it's fair to say that's scary when you consider it's only his second game!

Team of the Week

D: Christian Salem (Seoul), Sam Docherty (Moscow), Robbie Tarrant (New York), Jake Lloyd (New Delhi)
M: Robbie Gray [c] (New Delhi), Rory Sloane [vc] (Dublin), Ollie Wines (Beijing), Luke Shuey (London)
R: Brodie Grundy (Beijing)
F: Toby Green (Seoul), Jack Gunston (Dublin), Shaun Higgins (Christchurch), Will Hoskin-Elliott (Christchurch)

Round 3

Rising Star

A star has risen out of Toronto where second year player Jacob Hopper worked hard for a 90 to get the nod this week. Spare a thought for the man they call SPS from Christchurch and Brandan Parfitt of Seoul who did a fantastic job for their reserves teams, let's hope their senior coaches took notice.

Team of the Week

We're finally back! ...or at least the beloved TotW summaries are! And you know what? There's big news guys, I mean real big. I'm talking 197cm and 105kg big. Of course, I can only be talking about the one and only Shane Mumford being taking his rightful place on the TotW ruck throne! Oh and did I mention his amazing Cairo teammate Taylor Adams also features this week? Yes, that happened. In addition, a few Dubliners also did okay, including Rory Sloane who captains this week's side while Sam Docherty was unfortunate enough to suffer a loss despite a great performance but also incredibly fortunate some other coaches in the league left some even better performing individuals languishing in their reserves sides.

D: Leigh Montagna [vc] (Christchurch), Taylor Adams (Cairo), Alex Rance (Dublin), Sam Docherty (Moscow)
M: Rory Sloane [c] (Dublin), Marc Murphy (New Delhi), Dustin Martin (Dublin), David Mundy (New York)
R: Shane Mumford (Cairo)
F: Nick Riewoldt (Mexico City), Jack Martin (New Delhi), Luke Dahlhaus (Tokyo), Jack Watts (Rio)
I: Patrick Dangerfield (Seoul), Marcus Bontempelli (Pacific)

Only got the nomination last week because Petrevski-Seton's 116 was for the Weta. Not impressive. As for this week, McGrath was very impressive and must be a gun to match the other guy.

SPS couldn't even crack the seniors? Shows how much you rate him. :P

Plus Hopper has fwd status. SPS will need to average 5-10 points higher than him just to break even. Not impressive.

Round 4

Rising Star

It's true, Cairo young gun Andrew McGrath was just one of the reasons the Sands had a phenomenal week chipping in with 97 and just because someone didn't want to let ol' Pidge have his moment alone, future Christchurch perma-captain Brayden Fiorini also accomplished the same feat.

Team of the Week

We can't go on without mentioning first mention the good looking roosters that found themselves as coach(es) of the week, but now on to the team itself! Three of their finest made the team, two defensive stalwarts - Roberton and McGovern, and the best ruck in the competition Shane Mumford keeps his spot on the throne. In other news, forwards were very good this week, especially a duo from Seoul by the name of TJ Lynch and Brandon Matera while Luke Hodge and Taylor Walker were shining lights for their teams who have thus far have indifferent years.

D: Jeremy Howe (New Delhi), Dylan Roberton (Cairo), Luke Hodge (PNL), Jeremy McGovern (Cairo)
M: Tom Rockliff [c] (Mexico City), Lachie Neale (Beijing), Daniel Rich (New Delhi), Shaun Grigg (Rio)
R: Shane Mumford (Cairo)
F: Tom J Lynch [vc] (Seoul), Brandon Matera (Seoul), Eddie Betts (Mexico City), Luke Dahlhaus (Tokyo)

Round 5

Rising Star

Moscow will be pretty rapt that they've got a real promising youngster in Ryan Burton who this week gathered a nomination for the rising star with a respectable 89. More of that from him and they might actually be challenging soon enough.

Moscow will be pretty rapt that they've got a real promising youngster in Ryan Burton who this week gathered a nomination for the rising star with a respectable 89. More of that from him and they might actually be challenging soon enough.

Team of the Week

D: Rory Laird (Pacific), Marcus Adams (Buenos Aires), Dylan Roberton (Cairo), Zach Tuohy (Buenos Aires)
M: Joel Selwood [c] (New York), Adam Treloar [vc] (Dublin), Rory Sloane (Dublin), Robbie Gray (New Delhi)
R: Toby Nankervis (Cape Town)
F: Jeremy Cameron (New Delhi), Jack Riewoldt (Dublin), Luke Dahlhaus (Tokyo), Toby Greene (Seoul)
I: Tom Mitchell (Pacific), Shane Mumford (Cairo)

Forgot the summary, but the most important thing to note is a certain coach who shall not be named rested the top scoring defender this week.

I swear I didn't think he'd do that well!

Round 6

Rising Star

It's another triumph for Moscow who have their second nominee in a row. This week it is Tim Taranto with a quality 86 that managed to beat out the rest of promising youngsters around the world.

Team of the Week

Where do we even start?! The man they call GAJ does what only he can while Charlie Dixon just got himself out of next week's training session and a trip to the local brewery. Dylan Roberton continues to prove he's arguably the best defender in the world and Callum Sinclair turned up out of nowhere to show that he's no slouch at rucking. Shoutout to Ben McEvoy who helped keep up the trend of two rucks making the team of the week as well.

D: Dylan Roberton (Cairo), Sam Docherty (Moscow), Kade Simpson (Mexico City), Rory Laird (Pacific)
M: Gary Ablett Jr [c] (Rio), Scott Pendlebury (Toronto), Marcus Bontempelli (Pacific), Rory Sloane (Dublin)
R: Callum Sinclair (London)
F: Charlie Dixon [vc] (Berlin), Elliot Yeo (Rio), Josh J Kennedy (New York), Chad Wingard (PNL)
I: Ben McEvoy (Seoul), Lachie Neale (Beijing)

Coach: Levi434 (Rio)

Kreuz > Goldy.

Gun no doubt, but got to see if he can survive the season.

the story of Kreuz is every time he start too live up to being a number 1 pick he gets injured. I really hope thats not the case this time he is only 28 so he could string some great years together.

pretty happy with Goldy though, chugging along with a 5 round average of 109.

Kreuz with a very nice 115. he has a very very tough draw coming up though

Mummy
Witts
Nank
Sloane
Gawn

this will be the test.

Geez not sure the 183cm Sloane would be the greatest test for Kreuz. But you're right he hasn't really come up against anyone decent yet, his best score for the year was only against that scrub Goldstein.

I always interchange Sloane and Jacobs not sure why.

Round 11

Rising Star

This might just be the most remarkable result yet. Moscow's Wayne Milera adds to their growing list of nominees in spectacular fashion.

Round 12

Rising Star

Seoul are just having a really good year, they're even managing to get rising star nominations in the form of Charlie Curnow who contributed well with a 92 to get his name thrown into the mix for the grand prize.

3rd best this week. Back to back 95+ games. When a player scores average and then good it's called a breakout, and that's what's happening here. The new Connor Blakely.

Dime a dozen midfielder who scored 80 this week? He's alright but ruckmen are worth 20 more than their average, and Big Darcy will average 100 in no time.

If Oliver type midfielders are a dime a dozen why do you only have 1 guy close to his average.

Also add +20 to Darcy and he is still almost 20 between Oliver.

Sean Darcy for the rising star nomination soon and in the conversation for the award come seasons end.

Def and fwds are worth pretty much the same. 10 points more than mids. An 80 ave fwd or def should be worth a 90 ave mid, at least.

Rucks worth the most, I'd say another 10 points more than fwds or defs.

2nd and 3rd year players should be better than the fresh meat so the bold guys (except mature age Ryan) should get extra credit.

Slow start due to injury.

Kreuzer has been a beast, 7 week average of 130 is insane thats Goldy 2015 level.

odds are he will slow down at some point given this is his 10th season and he has never averaged over 100.

guy has talent just never been able to string it together, 90 103 in his last 2 games must be a little concerning.

2012: 20 games @ 92.3
2013: 16 games @ 97.8 (102 unsubbed)
2014: 1 game @ 69
2015: 13 games @ 89.2
2016: 21 games @ 73 (shared ruck duties with Phillips)
2017: 14 games @ 109.4***

To me it looks like he's always had the scoring ability but just hasn't had the continuity. Last year was the most games he's played in a season and that has set him up for a career best year. He's a former #1 draft pick that is only now reaching his potential and this is just the start.

he always has these purple patches then gets injured or something happens.

2013 the best example Pumped out a 124 over 6 rounds then went 72 (inj) came back for 68 82. Thats after starting the season 113 109 then getting injured.

then injured 2014

missed first half of 2015.

he has the talent no doubt.

The body is the worry.

after playing 42 of his first 44 games he then went on to only play 75 of the next 132. That would hold anyone back.

if his body holds up then he will be a gun, big if though.

As i have said before he isnt young either. He is only 11 months younger then Goldy.

Win-Win then. Couldn't be happier with Griffen and Corey Ellis to be honest.

2016: 20 @ 109 (fwd)

2017 is particularly impressive. A worthless 5 matches @ 46 vs Zorko.

And still no compo.

Pick 2 for Jobe.
Pick 12 for Jack Trengove.
Shuey for useless McVeigh and decent WHE.

Why do we even vote on trades? Atrocious.

Round 15

Rising Star

This one was a matter of when not if, so it's good to see that Alex Witherden takes out this week's honour with a 109 which also happened to be the best rookie score of the week!

Team of the Week

D: Shannon Hurn [c] (New York), Michael Hurley (Pacific), Taylor Adams (Cairo), Shane Savage (Toronto)
M: Gary Ablett [vc] (Rio), Brad Ebert (Rio), Patrick Dangerfield (Seoul), Ben Cunnington (Mexico City)
R: Matthew Kreuzer (Toronto)/Shane Mumford (Cairo)
F: Chad Wingard (PNL), Jack Macrae (Toronto), Lance Franklin (Berlin), Jack Riewoldt (Dublin)
I: Tom Mitchell (Pacific), Sam Gray (London)

Coach: RaisyDaisy and AaronKirk (New York)



Not sure we've ever had a situation where two rucks got the same score but the only spot left to fill was the actual ruck spot, so I figured both deserved to have their name listed.
