A must and should win game against a struggling Blues side.

I can't see there being any changes except for injury.

Outs(if injured)- Jarrod Berry, Oscar McInerney.

Ins- Ely Smith, Connor Ballenden.

If Oscar is out and Archie is fit, I would think we would without a doubt bring Archie in as the only other mature ruck on our list. My gut feel is that Tom Berry would probably be first in line for Jarrod too, especially after making a good impact last night (and considering his last game at Marvel was pretty good).

Would like TBerry to tag Saad. Hind could’ve done a lot more damage on the weekend with some support

next week Berry Snr if injured out for Dev
Also maybe Lester out for Berry Jnr.. Still think too slow.
Hopefully no one wanting Linc out this week. Like McStay he had great weeks and others not many touches although does team things.

If Oscar out is it worth just using Joe/McStay and not replacing him with Fullarton. Joe did well yesterday.
Archie seems injured again.

I think it really comes down to needs. Do we want a pressure high half forward in Berry or an inside midfielder such as Matho or Dev. Personally, I think it would be a great chance to give Ely Smith a shot - he showed in the VFL his pressure game has improved dramatically, as has his work ethic. He can rotate inside, play on the wing or start up forward, so fits JB's role quite well. It's a must win though so it really comes down to whether or not we want to risk a debutant in a game like this.

That's true, although he still feels somewhat down the pecking order going off recent weeks. Dev being the emergency rested at half time of the VFL and Tom Berry being the medical sub suggest to me they are seen as further up the queue at present, and with how Dev played compared to Ely in that first half I feel like that's probably a pretty fair reflection of their form. Ely was an emergency yesterday though so clearly is close.
