South Australian State of Origin Team Round 2 2015

Here is the rolling South Australian SOO team after Round 2 in the AFL.

 

Every week during the duration of the AFL season this article will provide the best 22 players in each position for the Croweaters during the week. Another three, on top of the 22, will be picked as reserves.

The following rules apply for every week of selection.

1. They must play in the AFL round and not be injured.

2. They must come from South Australia, represent the state in previous lower level competitions, and play in the AFL. (This rules out Taylor Walker – who played for NSW in the Under 18’s)

At the middle of the season, and at the end of the season, I will provide a team of the year update as to those who would play for SA if State of Origin existed.

There will be plenty of arguments about the team from week to week so let the games begin.

At the bottom of the article is all the stats involving each South Australian in the AFL for the round in question.

 

Here is the team for Round 2:

ROUND 2

EXPLANATION OF THE SQUAD –

DEFENDERS –

* Matt Jaensch and Brodie Smith got the most disposals amongst the defenders for the Crows. Smith in particular was the best player for Adelaide against Collingwood.

* Tom Jonas got plenty of touches and took 7 marks as Port were disappointing against the Swans.

* Heath Grundy kept Jay Schulz to just one goal.

* Shaun Burgoyne just keeps getting disposals for the Hawks.

MIDFIELD –

* Brad Ebert got the second most disposals by a South Australian over the weekend. He once again led the way for the Power.

* Jack Redden had the most disposals by a South Australian and was the best Lion on the field as they got smashed by the Kangaroos.

* Kane Cornes stats were good enough to beat the other contenders for his position. He had 15 kicks and 10 handballs.

* Lachie Neale was one of Fremantle’s best as they defeated the Cats.

* Bryce Gibbs will be leading the Carlton best and fairest after two rounds. He is the only thing going for that club at the moment.

* Sam Jacobs was mega for the Crows. Plenty of disposals and the most hit outs by a South Australian.

ATTACK –

* Paul Puopolo and Lindsay Thomas both kicked two goal for their respective clubs over the weekend.

* Matthew Pavlich was great again for Fremantle.

* Port trio, Justin Westhoff, Chad Wingard, and Angus Monfries, all had over twenty disposals and kicked one goal in their loss to Sydney.

The other 7 players – 4 interchange and 3 emergencies – were the best of the rest for SA. The interchange is comprised of a ruckman, a defender, a forward, and a backman.

Here is a list of all the players eligible for SA. 59/110 played over the weekend. 1 was the subs for their team.
