AFL Expectations for 2018
Let’s have a look at what has gone and what’s to come next year in terms of the AFL!
Wayne Milera Will Have a Chance to Shine
With Charlie Cameron moving to the Brisbane Lions, the door has opened for gifted youngster Wayne Milera to become a regular feature in the Adelaide Crows’ forward line.
Milera was the 11th overall pick in the NAB AFL Draft of 2015, and has shown glimpses of genius in the 24 games he has played since then. Milera has shown an ability to make something great out of nothing, locking the ball in the forward line as well as pushing up onto the wing. Look out for a breakout season from this player next year.
Allen Christensen Will Amaze the AFL
Allen Christensen is as good a player to gamble on as any you will find at the online casino NZ dollars sites available these days! Despite having missed all of last season, and half of the one before, you can confidently expect great things from this player next season, in our opinion.
Christensen has had a run of awful luck ever since he got cleaned up, albeit fairly, by Carlton’s Andrew Walker halfway through 2016. He dislocated his shoulder there, and last year he cracked the plate that was holding it all together.
The former Geelong Cat will be similar to a new recruit for Chris Fagan! Thanks to Tom Rockliff being off to Port Adelaide, Christensen will be able to get more time in the midfield in order to make use of his polished skills and ability to make brilliant decisions. This is certainly one thing that the Brisbane Lions can do with.
Christensen is fit as a fiddle, and although he has not been blessed with blinding speed, he has enough to break away when he needs to and set up his teammates as he goes. In the 33 games he has played for the Lions, Christensens average has been almost 20 disposals and goal in each game.
A Heavy Investment in Harry Mckay
The Carlton Football Club have made a huge investment in their young forward, Harry McKay, and rightly hope to reap the rewards in the near future. The Big H, as he is nicknamed, has returned to training looking a lot stronger as he seeks to make an addition to his two senior games in two seasons. While injuries have marred his AFL career, McKay has shown enough promise to suggest that he is more than capable of solving the Blues’ travails as he kicks winning scores, shows off his skills, and displays a great goal-sense.
Mason Cox Looks to the Magpies’ Line-Up
There are high hopes for Mason Cox to not only prove himself in the lineup for the Collingwood Magpies, but to become a crucial figure in what has been an attack marred by misfiring.
It is a tall task to hand the American PIe, who has been playing for only three years, and has just 20 AFL games and a total of 27 goals to his name, but we believe he will deliver. And so, seemingly, do the Magpies -as their new three-year contract with Cox signals.
