    North by 12 points. Mason wood is coming in, i think we'll be exposed down back due to lack of height and strength. Hope im wrong obviously.

    That's not bad, I think Tucker has earned another crack at it. Balic didn't look too bad this morning so hopefully it's just a precaution.

    Nice to have some competition for spots!

    Damn unlucky for Balic! Tucker deserving of the opportunity.

    D.Pearce now misses 3 weeks of football, he won't play for freo next week.

    Interesting North have rested Preuss and replaced him with Mason Wood.

    Balic has a hip complaint. I'm not sure he would've been dropped if he wasn't injured.

    Tucker needs to cement his spot now. He earned his way back now hopefully he stays and makes it his own.

    Wonder how serious Balic's hip is? He could be just a little sore. If any of the young guys are sore, rest them and let them recover. Don't want to break our young guys.

    I think all the young guys will get a weeks rest occasionally. Let one of the other newbies try to hold a spot.

    Ed Vickers-Willis in for North. I reckon there was a bloke with the same surname who played in the WAFL for Claremont, but I can't recall which era. 80's?

    North look like they might have one tall too many down back, we may see one of Hansen/Tarrant swung forward for stints during the game which could trouble us.

    One thing is for sure though, Hansen/Weller is unlikely to be a real matchup lol.

    I don't think he has a chance against either 1-on-1 but fortunately that type of isolated contest is pretty rare in the modern game. Ibbo and Hughesy will have to be on point along with our mids to force high forward entries. Centre clearances will really hurt us but luckily I think we'll dominate that area of the ground

    Can't believe it,but our front six could worry norf's back six once the ball hits the deck imo.

    I hope it doesn't rain but the chance of a storm or thunderstorm is looking more likely in and around Perth from the late afternoon on Saturday.

    I'm sure we'll rotate our defenders around a bit like last week but thinking something like:

    Johnson - Brown
    Hamling - Wood
    Spurr - Thomas
    Weller - Simpkin
    Sheridan - Turner
    Hughes - Macmillan
    Ibbo - Hansen/Tarrant (if they shift forward)

    And that's without Logue in the mix down back. I think we match up quite well.

    I think their forwards beat our backs; our midfield beats theirs, and our forwards break even with their backs. Going to be interesting - our mids have to work hard to make sure they keep the ball going our way if we want to win this.

    I'm actually more worried about this than the demons. North are 0 - 4 but they lost to WCE, Geelong, GWS and the Doggies. All are strong sides.

    I tipped our boys for dreams, I think it's going to be a nail biter.

    We should cover them easily in the midfield and that is where it is won and lost. Freo has too much pace and skill across the ground for them, I would be disappointed if we lost doubly so cos we are at home on the big ground. Ziebell, Higgins, Swallow, Cunnington, Taylor Garner (?wing)..... too slow
