    Well now that Hunter is a confirmed out, that means Honeychurch retains his place and the following changes should be made:
    IN: Lipinski, Webb, Cordy, Roberts
    OUT: Hunter (suspended), Naughton, Biggs, Jong

    Naughton and English will not, and should not be dropped for their first games in their home state in front of family and friends. Not like they have negative form to deserve a dropping either, so neither will be "rested"

    Just remember, Fremantle still play their games at Subiaco. ;)

    Actually I think the new system is dishing out too many fines and not suspending enough players - how Sandilands got a fine and not 3 weeks, and Grundy not rubbed out for charging Dicko in Moe, is beyond a joke. Plenty of other soft financial punishments this year too.

    I'd make 3 changes....

    Out - Redpath
    In - Boyd
    English needs help in the ruck and Dunkley/Jong/Bontempelli should not be our back up ruck, especially against the Man Mountain. Red's knee isn't allowing him to back up Tim.

    Out - Biggs
    In - Cordy
    Biggs' form has gone south in a big way and InZaine is due to return after his brain fade.

    Out - Hunter (suspension)
    In - Lipinski
    Lippy has shown a bit at VFL level and it is a good time to get some AFL experience into him. Lachie needs some lessons from Matty Scarlett on how to deal with little forward pocket pests.

    I disagree with this. Much can be gained from playing 2s, especially when young. Hawthorn are doing it with Burton at the moment, and he's clearly a gun

    Personally, I would prefer the witness account of an official (umpire) 70 centimetres from the actual incident with a unimpeded view, than the MRP - via a 2 dimensional camera angle 125 metres from the ‘vicious assault’.

    Yeh, the head is ‘sacrosanct’ but I don’t get reprimanded for brushing my hair each morning.

    Don't understand the calls for Naughton to be dropped. The guy is doing two sensational things for every error he makes and has had one of the best starts of a new recruit that i can remember, especially for a tall.

    I'd give Richards a rest. Don't play him at any level. Monitor his workload. It is a trip to Perth after all.
    Maybe Naughton as the travelling emergency to visit family as well? Still plenty of time left in the season and we don't want these kids having burnout.

    Naughton has been doing some amazing intercept work down back. Easily best 22.

    Shane Rodney Biggs may need a rest and a appointment with a barber.

    Naughton is already a valuable cog in our defence.

    Out: Jong In: Lipinski

    No idea who will come in for hunter. Maybe Boyd?

    Naughton got 4 AFLCA votes on the weekend. He won’t be dropped.

    Can’t be much worse than Gowers lining up at the back of the square in the 2nd half against Sydney :drunk:

    Richards seemed to lose his head at times during the game. You've got to stay in the moment - be mindful if you will - pretty much all game long or you will let your team down. It's almost impossible to do for 100 minutes, but it can be learned and Richards seems to need some training in this aspect of the game.

    Suggestions like this always bemuse me a little, 3NP. I just feel like we have no idea how different players have recovered after a certain game, and how ready they are for the next week. They'll probably both need a week off at some point, but that should really be guided by their bodies.

    Fair enough - we don't know about their bodies, I'll give you that, but at the same time, it's a trip to Perth

    Could Boyd come in and help Tenglish against big Sandi? Tim should smash him aerobically around the ground but could get belted at stoppages. Will allow Redpath to play permanent full forward. Just can’t see it if Taberner is the back up ruck. What we reckon?

    Saturday has 90% chance of rain, 5-10mm. Just seen the news forecast & they said it was going to be very wet, not sure what to believe

    So maybe we go small? i.e. no return for Boyd, Roughy or Trengove. Just Cordy?

    Cordy for Biggs, Boyd for Hunter. Play Dahlhaus in Hunter’s role (keeps him out of the forward line) Boyd as extra tall forward and replaces Dahlhaus forward. Hopefully straighter kick with same chances!

    Biggs, Jong and Honey were all well under their usual par this week. Any of them could be under threat for a spell.

    To come back in you'd think Cordy is a certainty. Lipinski sounds like he's in very good form at the moment. Boyd or Rough are both options if we need to go taller.

    I think we'll probably only see two changes.

    If reports are accurate and it is going to be wet, this is not the game to bring Boyd back for.

    In: Lipinski, Cordy

    Out: Hunter, Honeychurch

    Biggs very lucky to hold his spot but he needs to string some games together and find his form again. Honey has had that chance and clearly will never be up to it.
