Gets one-match ban
MEssendon Bombers
June 28, 2020
Merrett has accepted a one-match suspension for a strike against Jack Silvagni during Saturday's game against Carlton.
Merrett will miss Friday's crucial tilt against Collingwood as a result of his suspension. The Bombers toyed with the idea of contesting the charge before ultimately acquiescing to the league's judgement. Merrett's strike against Jack Silvagni left the Carlton forward with a bruised lung and a fractured rib.
Pivotal in victory
MEssendon Bombers
June 14, 2020
Merrett totaled 29 disposals (14 kicks, 15 handballs), four tackles, four marks, one goal and one behind in Sunday's 79-73 victory over the Swans.
Merrett paced the Bombers with 29 disposals, adding three clearances in the six-point victory. The win has the Bombers as one of only three undefeated teams after two rounds of the competition. Despite being on the wrong end of a 25-13 free-kick count, the Bombers were able to dig in late to hold on for a nail-biting victory. Merrett has been one of the more consistent performers in recent times and should continue to flirt with elite fantasy value moving forward.
