Pardon the intrusion, what’s going on with Preuss? Why isn’t he being picked? (Yes it’s a fantasy question)
Flynn's looked good although not perfect as a solo ruck and it gives them more flexibility in the lineup with Flynn's ability to go foward with Sproule being fine enough as a chop out option. Preuss will get another go at some point but Flynn's playing really well atm and the interchangability of Flynn/Sproule gives more flexibility when picking a team.

Don't really know. He's being picked in the emergencies so presumably is OK to play, or at least 90% (2 weeks ago was aftermath of illness, so possibly was given more time to recover). I would play both him and Flynn against Norths and Brisbane ... maybe with his recent illness the selectors don't think he can play as the solo ruck for a whole game but don't want to play 2 rucks hence choosing Flynn.

Thanks guys. Strange one as he’s looked really good in the games I’ve seen him in (and he was dominating for my draft fantasy team). Hopefully he gets another crack.

Hoping we come out with a renewed level of enthusiasm and appreciation of the revised gameplan.

Would hope that (a) we score well from a running gameplan & (b) our defence holds Norths' score down.

Any thoughts on where Himmelberg and Ash will play? I’m assuming both will play in the backline alongside Taylor, Idun, Keeffe, Ward and Cumming which means Kennedy and Whitfield play Half forward/wing

At a guess, Himmelberg KPD alongside Taylor & Keeffe. Without Haynes, Taylor & HH will do more intercepting.

Ward seems to play off half-back these days. I'd guess Ash will play more midfield, adding some zip there. Kennedy off half back, and Whitfield half forward flank where he played last game.

care to elaborate further?
im thinking cogs might go to the middle ? riccardi/peatling to half forward?
Yes, for starters.

Probably HH to KPD as he's played the last 3 weeks, Perryman to the midfield (although somewhat of a utility), and de Boer probably not in the centre but more forward.

Great quarter. Playing as a team. Something like 80% kicking efficiency. Go Giants!!!
