I know, I know, "Bonner?" You might be wondering as you clicked on onto this post confusion. But let me assure you that he is Marchbank 2.0 for the 2018 season or maybe even better.

1. No Birchall.
We all (well most) had Birchall in our time ready to lock and load or defence without a worry but then we found out he had knee surgery and may be in doubt for round 1. He was the key to making our 4th upgrade in defence so easy for all of us. But maybe the SC Gods had other plans for us (don't get me wrong injury or surgery for a player is NEVER a good thing). Bonner comes in about 20k cheaper than Birchall without the need for compromise within your structure, for example fining 40 odd k for a Brayshaw or something.

2. Consistency.
In all the games that he had played (albeit 4 games) he has not scored below 70 points. A player priced at about a 40 average with the potential to score 30+ more points than that? Insanity. One of the games was an elimination final where he did not place a single clanger disposal for the entire game when the rest of his teammates couldn't kick straight to save their lives. So obviously we can see he is good under pressure.

3. The aging list.
With the port list starting to age, they will be looking to inject some youth into the squad (disregard whatever Koch said, he knows as much about AFL as I know about Thermal Dynamics) and with Bonner entering his 3rd season at the ripe age of 20 years old, he will be looking to cement his place in the best 22 of Port (shamelessly stole part of that line from The Phantom).

Keep a close watch during the JLT and if he is named Round 1 (which is very likely I think) lock him into your teams.

Only a small sample size with 3 games last year and 1 the year before. Excellent foot skills, and had a great year at SANFL level, but is that enough? He is only $257K with an average of 76!

Bonner has a big future, think he might be the surprise packet of 2018. Rebounders tend to click in their third year. If Birch is out then he'd be worth a punt. Very similar players too.

if he plays and averages 70 (which seems like a goodish chance) can anyone work out how much money he would have made by round 10 as that is when I would aim to trade him out by.

thanks :)

Currently have Brayshaw but his injury history is concerning.

On tooserious.net it's roughly about 100k if he averages 70 from rd.1 to rd.10 so puts him about 350k or thereabouts

I am a massive fan of Bonner for the long term, as most XV coaches will know. As a Port man though, I'm not too sure that Broadbent's injury just magically guarantees him uninterrupted gametime early this year as some have suggested. We already have Pittard, Houston, & Hartlett playing the same role even before Broadbent's injury. It might see him handed an opportunity early in the season along with Cannon McKenzie, but he's very likely to still be on the fringes regardless of the injury to Broadbent.

By all means though, if he's persisted with throughout the JLT and named Round 1, he's a very very tempting option if we get some assurance regarding his job security.

Food for thought.

Will stick with Brayshaw but will defintely watch.

Prefer Brayshaw, but will be monitoring him through the JLT.

I see you read The Phantom's article. Ill be more than happy for people to take Bonner as I see no benefit in it over a rookie option or 4th premium..

Rookie type JS,
Solid scoring, but unlikely to make enough to be a cash cow, nor enough to be a stepping stone. Would need to average 83 up to the bye playing every game to make it worthwhile. For every game he misses he wold need to average 2.6 points more to cover.
Early bye - If he misses a few games or has a few not scoring well and you will be worse off when you get to the bye.
