Cannot drop Wicks. He has not put a foot wrong. Love his determination.What is the prognosis for Naismith?
With Hickey out I expect Sinclair will ruck in the interim.
Which leads me to ins and out for Gold Coast, there being no preview thread.
Gold Coast have 5 pages already and the latest post is that Papley is in doubt. Does anyone know anything about this?
OUT: Franklin Hickey
IN: Maclean Sinclair.
That bit is easy. The next bit ain't.
OUT: Wicks ?
Can't drop McDonald as Reid will be helping in the ruck, and as we saw in the first rounds, having McDonald and Maclean providing tall targets worked well.
That leaves Wicks for a rest. It's tough on Wicks but I can't think who else. Parker forward. Rowbottom in the mids.
And what about Stephens? He didn't set the world alight last week but to be fair he was notionally replacing a ruckman. Also it is hard to come on late in the game, with no senior footy since last year. If he comes in, probably Blakey out.
That then becomes four changes, so I doubt it.
