Can guarantee you in a season such as this, no team will want to tank. I think thats the beauty of the 17 round season this year, and with Covid going around, teams want wins to build and get confidence and keep fans happy in dreary times. Who knows what will go on in 2021. There is no guarantee next years draft will be a good draft.The selections are intriguing for both teams.
Norths ins are all either big distance coverers (e.g. Brown) or fast / agile (Walker / Hosie) or pure outsiders (Polec).
Assuming North are not tanking (and I'm still dubious about that) then it seems they are planning to do as you suggest and run the Cats off their feet.
Every team will have some changes this round, mostly for managed reasons.
OUT C.Taylor (knee), K.Hayden, N.Larkey, L.Davies-Uniacke (all managed)
With regards to Melbourne, they looked exhausted against Brisbane last Thursday, still think that extra 2 day gap will mean something and as most of the posters here mentioned, that will be an advantage of some sort. Crows I think had 8 changes mostly managed as well. IN T.Doedee, N.McHenry, F.McAsey, T.Walker, D.Mackay, H.Schoenberg, D.Fogarty, L.Sholl
They are good ins for Adelaide but they will rely on these fresh legs to beat Melbourne tomorrow night.
