Going to get slaughtered. Shouldn't really be playing Cordy unless absolute break glass now. surely wilks, battle and shoey were enough tall cover. Same goes with jones, he is not apart of the future, play Garcia.
Who the hell is gonna play on lohman and Cameron? We have not 1 defensive minded back man in the side..
 
Jones hey, I hope he is the sub - it's a really strange choice when Garcia is available. I know we need to support Saints players but I'm not a fan of Jones. I like Seb, he's been a warrior but again, what can he do that Hugo cannot?

Agree but no real harm in giving Jones a chance to save his career. Hugo’s developing nicely whether at VFL or AFL level.

This kind of screams Wilkie on Cameron...

Battle doesn't have the agility.
Cordy wasn't brought in for that.
Shoey is so new it'd be a great way to burn confidence.
Wilkie is the gap stopper in that D50 to man Cameron.

Fair to say, I hate it.

He was omitted, its pretty much just a fancy way of saying he was dropped. Tell you what though, I'll state it empirically if Tim feels slighted by some harmless text.
Of course he’s was dropped, and it’s ok to say that, but that was a pretty crass way of saying it, especially in light of his MH issues.
 
On a more positive note, it's nice to see Sharman being properly awarded for his recent good form. Hope he stays forward and does well.
Arie getting a game is also great to see. Well deserved.
I don't mind losing just as long as there are some signs of development amongst the younger group.
100% - Membery I hate to say is finished , time to give Sharman a good work out in his position and Arie has been outstanding in the 2s so great they are giving him a crack.

We all know our season is all but over so bring in the guys that will be our future , I rate Sharman and if given a fixed position as a forward he has the talent to surprise.
 
Zak f****** Jones. This club just isn't fair dinkum. How many more times do we have to watch that bloke play. For gods sake

Maybe Jones will be the sub. The 3 Emergencies are all not kids either.

But development wise this means the kids not in the 22 will get good development time playing full games with Sandy who are playing well at present, rather than being spectators in Qld.

Disagree, this way Superboot comes in to be the player we give the ball to so that he uses his kicking, plus he can go for intercepts marks.

He would be wasted as a lock down tall defender, a role he has little experience in, does not yet have the body for and would probably go badly in.

Lets develop the kid, not give him a soul crushing mission.

$6 bucks - in a two horse race between the teams sitting 13th and 14th on the ladder - I'm in!!
I say it every week......POS..........it's a 2 horse race......you just never know.

My optimism is high.....until it's ummm....not.

Despite some optimism. . .with our selected side,it's very very difficult seeing us jag a win.

Brissy would have to have an extremely off night and we pull one out of the bag!!!!

Last year's Lions, this year they have been very poor. Less poor than us though.
 
Who the f*ck is going to stop Charlie Cameron from kicking a bag on top of the Twin Towers killing our undersized backline?
Seen Charlie play lately? He has been horrific
 
If I was Lyon for the first few behind kick outs I would be getting Arie to launch as long and as far as he can .... past the center .... do it for the first 3 or 4 or 5 times

That will get Brions on the backfoot clearing space in their 50 as the majority of their players will advance back to the center line anticipating this gameplay especially if it works a few times in our favour .... after this Arie may go a bit shorter which will put the Brions in 2 minds on how to set up and where to go

That boot is not only a weapon but we can use it to get the game on our terms and make the Brions reactive

Right up the middle 🤣
 
The team is wrong but the story is correct.
It was against Freo.


Well for a guy who "never recovered" and who played the week after Freo he sure stunk it up (not) the next game after he was dropped which was for Sandy.

And then seems to have had a pretty decent VFL Career ever since.



I think it is more that he is quite a decent player, but not good enough for AFL Level. Very good intercept marker, not so good defensively, and only a so so kick.

He was worth a crack, but did not make it, and there is no disgrace in that.

We could well get slaughtered but we are coming up against a team with 2 tall forwards and only having Battle and Wilkie really doesn't give us anyone to look after there other marking forwards like Rayner , Morris and Lohmann.

Cordy is by far our best option for attempting to control Daniher and Jones could well be in the team to play defense against the Cameron types - who knows , but Lyon will have his defensive plan and like most weeks it turns the game into a low scoring scrum.

I'm no fan of Cordy or Jones , but used as role players can do a job and the reason they have been brought back into the team - Jones may well be finished but we know he will not take a backwards step.
 
How is it that Brisbane can come up against 2 teams consecutively that have not had a rest via bye while they have had two.
Really Kane and Dillon are absolutely incompetent and should immediately be dismissed.
The FIXture is an absolute dogs breakfast and the bias towards these AFL booster clubs is bordering on corrupt.

midfield the key - Windhager tagged Neale before and totally beat him , our only worry is getting on top of Dunkley and there other mids.

We could well win if a few of our guys play to there best - guys like Henry , Owens , Butler , Higgins can all kick goals and they will need to be doing it this game with King and Sharman.

If we can kick a score around the 90 point mark we could easily win , but we have only been averaging around 70 so we will need more guys scoring and not points.
