The defence looks more solid if Ambrose plays - Think Ambrose on Walker and Hooker on Jenkins should be decent match ups.
Yep - looks like both Ambrose & Heppell will get up for this game. I think they 22 will be;-

Francis Hooker McKenna
Gleeson Ambrose Saad
McGrath Merrett Parish
Brown Laverde Zakka
McKernan Stringer Tippa

Z.Clarke Shiel D.Clarke

Bench: Redman Guelfi Heppell Fantasia


We have to be some chance with that team - even in Adelaide.

I can already see us being 4 goals to ZIP down in the first 10 minutes of the game...

We will just need to start well. That is the key!

Out: Hurley, Fantasia, Langford
In: Ambrose, Snelling, Heppell

Raz’s form and movement suggests he needs a spell. Snelling appears to be ready to go. Langford will have to make way for Hep if he’s right.

With our injury list as it is I’d prefer them to play it safe. Anyone borderline right to play shouldn’t. No need to unnecessarily rest players either but if it’s touch and call, don’t play them.

Any of Hartley, BZT, Ridley, Ham, Snelling or Mynott coming in to cover incumbents (or Heppell) would be good.

Blood Bomber any idea where the SA supporters group meet up pre game?

I won't be going to the game, got daughter's basketball down at Port Adelaide so won't be back until half time :'(
I won’t be going either just can’t justify $40 to stand on the hill in the cold might as well get a better view on tv and order a pizza

Sloane is their barometer, agree in locking him down.

I imagine Gleeson takes Lynch (better aerobic capacity) and Francis takes Jenkins.

Francis - Jenkins
Gleeson - Lynch
Hooker - Walker

If Ambrose comes in then he takes Lynch (aerobic capacity) and Gleeson takes Greenwood or resting mid.

Rate that. I Don’t think we should rush Ambrose back. He will be important later on if we do get close to Finals. Hartley is playing solid footy in the seconds.
