Why do you pump up Tyson, Wood and Turner?

I actually don’t think any of these guys will play another senior game for us.

Turner and Tyson definitely shouldn’t, maybe Wood gets another crack.
I’ve already mentioned why
But can explain again for you, Since Jacobs has been injured we never replaced his run with role except for Hayden for 1 game.
Tyson has similar attributes to play this important role for us Hence why I want him in

Wood due to I believe the forward line structure last year of Wood Larkey and Brown was effective and should continue.

turner is a genuine small forward in a spot we lack, he’s obviously injured and won’t play fot awhile

I have a feeling Wood is going to rip some games apart this season. Last year of his contract and playing for his career. I think he is too much of figjam not to turn up this year. He just needs to stay fit.

Jacobs was an elite tagger because of his mental attributes, not his physical ones. You’re pumping Tyson up as his replacement because he... looks a bit similar? Not to say he couldn’t do it, but we’d play Dumont in that role way before Dom.

Nah Dumont is now settled on the wing you wouldn’t move him

Tyson is a clearance high possession mid, experienced body who can go with the best mids but still link up the other way

Hayden can also play that role but coming back from injury would go Dom first this week on coniglio

Bonar is another option for this but think he would thrive more playing instinctively and more offensively

Giants had their intra club today both ward and Zac Williams got through it so looks like both will come in against us

On paper their best team smacks ours on every line. The boys will have to come up with a very special effort to get close.
Yep let’s see if all this talk of us raring to go is correct for once.
Otherwise it could be a good smacking if we play like round one -first half

Really just a sh*t fixture for us. Honestly makes me look forward to the footy a little bit less because there's such a high chance we'll be denied the ball for a good part of the match.

We can’t hide behind playing rubbish teams. Let’s take on one of the better teams n the comp and see where we are at.

I reckon I have a pretty good idea where we're at already. I'm not asking for a rubbish team just not a premiere contender interstate.

Since we punted Scott, we’ve got the 6th best record in the comp. Beating a good team on their dung hill will be a big boost to get us into the top 4..

Beat GWS and we play finals.

In fact, get inside 20 points and we should play finals.

You don't think Dumont is just keeping it warm until scott is ready and after seeing the clips of fri training maybe be ready for gws.... then Dumont retain his spot as tagger?

No he doesn't. tz ruled out Bailey Scott as a 16 year old and hasn't admitted he got it wrong (hint - he did).

It's important to keep hammering home this point.

No he hasn’t and he won’t
As of 6 weeks ago he was still willing to trade Bailey to GC for a 3rd rounder in 2023
