All the more reason to just chuck Menzel in and move Cameron to the midfield full time

Interrupted pre-season can often set players back, where they can't train properly for a significant time.
Brouch is back running, so fitness levels should be much better than this time last year, but doubt he will be up to full fitness by round 1. His main issue is continuity. Ie. He doesn't breakdown again just when he gets going again.
I reckon you could see Douglass have a go in the mid and if he performs will remain there which is fair enough if he gets the runs on the board
Wish I shared your confidence with Menzel as a mid, I'm not seeing it personally.
It's been a while since we had a really stupid injury (i.e. Brad Symes falling off the back of a ute or VB's sled clanger). Sloaney's face seems to break really easily - he must be made of porcelain lol.
Brad Crouch '' hopefully he is ready first couple of rounds''
Getting pushed out more and more
...that's what i heard
Wow. Where did you hear that?
The positive about no Sloane, Brouch & Thommo in the JLT series, is that we can trial nearly all our other midfield options for our vacancies. Ie. Plenty of midfield time for Mrouch, Hampton, Knight, Atkins, CEY, Milera, Smith, Laird, Greenwood, Wigg, Gallucci, Polholke, etc.
Hopefully from opportunity we unearth players who take step it up another level & they book themselves a spot in our midfield for the season.
Cameron as a mid, Menzel as a forward.
Think this year Menzel will mainly be a forward, with bursts in the midfield.
Birdman might know his shit but far out he's not a great speaker. Hard to listen to at times.
JLT 1 Lineup:
B: Brown, Talia, Keath
HB: Doedee, Hartigan, Laird
C: Cameron, Mrouch, Atkins
HF: Milera, Dear, Lynch
F: Menzel, Jenkins, McGovern
R: ROB, CEY, Douglas
I/C: Knight, Hampton, Greenwood, Gallucci, Poholke, Otten, Wigg
EDIT: Forgot Greenwood
Taking Charlie's spot, who'll take a full mid spot then?
All jokes aside, I wonder if this will give Greenwood an opportunity
We have heaps of midfielders to choose from, I think some of them can step up to become A grade midfielders especially Cameron, Gallucci and Hampton.
no mention of Talia broken nose for the second time this preseason.
Lyons, Douglas & Cameron all played considerable time as forwards.
No Lyons & expect the other 2 will spend more time in the midfield this year, so can easily find a forward spot for Menzel.
no reason not to play him in the preseason IMO, why wait.
This is great to get a look at some young guys in JLT in midfield
Not concerned re Lever . Usually start jogging with hammy strains after 5-7 days and right in 21 days
Sloaney will get up for round 1
Still think Brad is only one in major doubt for round 1
No need to wet the bed , will be a match off to see who deserves a spot in mid for round 1
Good chance for some newbies or fringe players to step up. I hope they get first crack at it.
Those players would benefit through having a champ in the midfield with them to ensure they get plenty of footy, without that class you may not see them shine
