AFL 2017 Round 10 - Adelaide v Fremantle

Rory Sloane

A memorable performance in the rain on Saturday has seen Rory Sloane become AFL Fantasy’s leading scorer for Round 10.

Lining up against Fremantle’s Nat Fyfe (80) in a hotly contested duel, it was Sloane that left the victor, nearly doubling Fyfe’s score with a round-high 157 points.

The hard-nosed Crow was dominant around the contest, recording 30 disposals (17 contested), 13 tackles and two goals.

Rory Atkins followed, collecting a career-high 130 points alongside a game-high 37 disposals.

Priced at $462,000, the ‘Rat’ now averages 90 points per game and could be a valuable addition for Fantasy owners looking to add some midfield class.

Sloane and Atkins were joined by six others in the 100 club, with eight Adelaide players reaching triple figures against the Dockers.

The Crouch brothers were electric, bringing a sense of urgency to Adelaide’s engine room in difficult conditions.

Matt (118) and Brad (100) were instrumental, combining for a sizzling 65 disposals. The brothers had a memorable first quarter, with 12 touches apiece as torrential rain flooded Adelaide Oval in the opening term.

Josh Jenkins (113) made his return from the SANFL known, contributing up the ground with eight marks and six tackles to go with his three goals.

Jake Lever (111) was efficient across half-back, the importance of his defensive role highlighted by 11 marks and eight one percenters.

Fantasy love was all around, with Andy Otten (107) setting a career-high score of his own.

Otten continues to blossom up forward, his outstanding form set to give Don Pyke a selection headache once Mitch McGovern returns from a hamstring injury.

The utility had eight marks, four tackles and slotted four goals in what was his best performance of the year.

Sam Jacobs (104) had his fifth Fantasy ton for the season. The ruckman proved consistent, collecting 40 hit-outs and five marks. A dribble kick turned goal now a highlight for Sauce to remember.
