So do people think Lynch will play rnd 1? Im hearing hes firming for a rnd 1 gig. Full training this past week, chance to get some gametime this week in vfl game, so will have had 3 full weeks of training. Ease him into jlt 3 in round 1 and hes ready for the season

We have a pretty tough start other than Carlton so playing an under done lynch could cause issues how ever if we don’t play him early he’s playing catch up all year

Personally I’d play him with balta giving nank a chop out

If he’s not ready nank/soldo ruck balta fwd

Personally i think he will play, He has been held back and will be allowed to participate in the match simulation this week for probably a half and will play limited minutes in Round 1.

Nothing to gain by playing him in the VFL or making him wait any longer

Two Cotchins would be handy

not sure about the Weller logic. He has never at any stage shown himself to be a prolific mid and the side is choc full of small players who can go fwd.
Give me a genuine mid who will give us plenty of contests and run and get his hands on the ball enough.

Same with Short if he is not down back then give me a genuine mid who will provide a contest with some run and delivery.

Does anyone know what is actually going on with Lynch and Caddy. The site says no but it seems Hardwick and Leppa think they will be a good chance
Yeah, I take your point on Weller. Ross might be the better pick for Carlton, with an eye on the future. Not sure I'd want to see any 18 y.o. kid playing the Pies the week after though.

We'll have to agree to disagree on Short. I reckon he'd be better on the wing - and I don't see that as a "mid" position. His defending isn't great when the balls in the air. His not much better when the balls on the ground. His strengths are keeping wide from the contest, run, carry and boot it long. Great for a winger playing predominantly in the forward half - like Grigg does.

Different positions. Markov backline. Menadue in the middle. Selectors have Markov ahead I reckon. But neither in the 22. Mind you Short better flick the switch ON or Markov will be taking his place

how much time do u lads expect dusty to play forward compared to last year
depends on the game situation IMO.
I think we could start him in the goal square and clear the other 5 forwards right up to the 50m arc to take advantage of him being a beast 1-1

Yep. Menadues 5th season this year and Markovs 4th. They'd be getting regular games in the seniors if they were up to it.
I was hoping that 30 year old Houli would drift out of the side this year. And Markov take his place. Markov is good depth for the backline. Menadue has more players ahead of him for wing position. He has the most style but does not get his hands on the ball enough

Markov and Menadue are fringe players.
Back-up players.
F Butler Martin Higgins
HF Rioli Riewoldt Weller
C KMc Lambert Graham
HB Houli Vlaustin Short
FB Astbury Rance Grimes
Foll Nankervis Cotchin Prestia
inter Balta Broad, Ross* Soldo
Balta is only 19, still young, I would include Soldo to support Nankervis in ruck duties.
Ross is extra.
I would regard the 21 as essential.
Caddy, Castagna, Lynch injuries.
Caddy replaces Weller, Castagna replaces Ross, Lynch replaces Balta.

Everybody has Graham as a lock in there lineups but I’m unsure. I’d love to see him win more of the footy

Most seem to have Butler in their team. I thought he was poor in both jlt games and very ordinary in a lot of games when he was fit last yr.

He had a few fumbles but he also often found himself in the right spot, I'd have him in. For now.
Do we really need him the way he has gone. Lambert, Edwards, Higgins, Rioli Martin, Graham can all play fwd.That aside id rather give a game to Bolton or Stack and just say to butler your spot is not guaranteed you need to lift if you want a senior game.
