Rd.10 Review - Tragic Round

Very interesting round of footy with the new ‘forceful’ high tackle and sin bin rules being introduced. It makes for some very interesting fantasy implications and, let's face it, some more blowout scores for certain teams. With the controversial round did come a shining beacon of light from the heavens with Cleary topping his previous highest fantasy score on a whopping 144. Could have got 148 though so should clean up his game for next week. linktr.ee/footybrainspod
