Lockhart needs to come in for Spargo next week
I think we will start setting up for next year after the bye.

I’m not seeing either of those guys as long term options at this point - but we don’t have any other small forward options coming through.

I think we'll still be putting as close to our best team out as possible, might just be short a few guys (ie Lewis). Halfway through the season is too early to be putting the cue in the rack.

Totally agree - I’m not suggesting we’ll put the cue in the rack.

We will play strong sides and try to win as many games as possible.

I don’t think we’ll play anyone who isn’t fully fit though, and I would expect that there will be a few game day moves and structural experiments which might not have happened if we were in the finals race.

In the last month you can keep an eye out for Sparrow, Jordan and Dunkley to get a game as well.

Sparrow is 6-8 I think. He might make it back for a few games.

Chandler has only done a couple of good things unfortunately - I’m not sure if he’s looking up to it yet.

Yeah rest of the season is about getting blokes playing well together. Can't win the flag next year with a team that's never been on the park at the same time.

Especially the back 6, really hope they can get 5-6 games together.

Nothing stinks out a football club with a recent losing culture more than not trying to win at all costs.

Winning games in the back half of the year is essential. We should really be winning 7 of the last 11 if we stay injury free.

May / Lever / Salem / Hore need as much time together as possible. Jetta won't be back for a while, but he's the general down there and can slot in at will.

Have you actually watched him or are you going off stats? If assume the latter...
Ive seen him twice and the rest is from what I’ve heard from people who would know better.

One of the games I watched (on tv), we did get pantsed so maybe a bit of a harsh day to judge a young small forward/flanker.

Happy to be very wrong!..
