Player Prev: 2015 PO RI ST

Player Previews for Port Adelaide, Richmond & St Kilda

Updated 26 Mar 2015 (the last update for these players for 2015)

The table below gives significant information on each player’s 2014 PS, 2014 season and 2015 PS.  Blanks usually mean nothing of great interest to report.  This data will help you do the research necessary to “pick your right team” and will also be a useful guide to early season tipping

You can get all the NAB SC numbers from the SCPaige website.

Fantasy Freako can email you the Dream team points.
