Coming back from his injury in the preseason (in an interview on channel eagle last night) he said he's just glad to be able to even run again, little more than actually playing. I don't recall him running fluidly in any of the games i've seen him play this year. He racked up the most kms for Freo last weekend, so hopefully a combination of everything they're just double checking?

If any training watchers see any match sims which may give an indication of our forward line this week, it would be greatly appreciated if that info could be passed on.

Moving "like a gazelle" says afl.com's Travis King
You actually forget how powerful Sandi can be. There was a period when they were practicing centre clearances, and Hugh Dixon turned on the spot and ricocheted off Sandi's chest about a metre. Took him a while to get up and collect himself. Sandi kept running and handballed to another player.

Reminded me of that time he cleared out a Hawks player chasing Morabito on the 2010 elimination final.

You'd say McCarthy will definitely play this week, hoping he provides something special up forward. Hopefully Sandilands can get up for the derby and start his little farewell tour for the end of the season.

Sandi/Darcy rucking and have Lobb up forward.
No confident with Lobb full time forward. Is that too tall and immobile?

He’s more mobile than Cox imo and would immediately take his spot. One would imagine the selectors will probably wait for Darcy to play a stinker before swapping him with Sandi. He’s been pretty solid his last two outings.

When Hogan is injury free, he’s a straight swap for McCarthy.

HFF: Walters Hogan Cerra
FF: Matera Lobb Switta
Ruck: Sandi

He'd get 2 weeks for that these days even though he had eyes on the ball the whole time.
Would love to see Nic Ratinui backing backunder the ball with Sandi going for a big mark knees up for ultimate revenge.
(Unfortunately the Rat has never had the courage to take that kind of mark)

Nicnat has knees made of paper mache now, he won't be jumping or kneeing anyone in the back again.;)
