Nah sat back and watched too many times last week. Good decision
Well that's on Jonas and Hartlett to show leadership and let him know. Absolutely fuming Hartlett is still in. Was quietly hoping his corky was worse the other week and he was forced out. Not sure what else McKenzie or Lienert have to do to get a game.

I think in a showdown where it is likely to get physical and experience counts Hartlett is still a good choice.

We have had too many outside types in recent weeks IMO.

Farrell better be ready to go when it's his turn.
I want to believe HH will provide what he's provided in the past with aggression. However, the constant turn overs and dumb frees outweigh the 'aggression' he might bring

Is there enough minutes to go around for Farrell to get good enough minutes in the midfield??
Hes not a hff. Spp plays that role well when not in the midfield.

So now we only have to squeeze the following in the midfield....

SPP
Houston
Gray
Boak
Bergman
Amon
Wines
Rozee
Farrell
Drew
Motlop

Fredericks probably isn't best 28 at the moment. If the finals were tomorrow, even with our current injury list, he wouldn't be picked. He got his taste, did reasonably well, now needs to go back and play solidly. His chance will come, just not this year.
I feel Frederick is incredibly stiff to miss out this week given that the majority of the team were passengers last week. His performance in his debut would suggest that he is well and truly in our best 28. I think Frederick deserved the opportunity that Woodcock, Farrell, Marshall, Bergman have been given in terms of a 4-5 game block to prove their worth in the first team.

Surely they couldn't roll Mayes out as the sub once again. He's going to need some games at some stage. I mean it is nice to use older depth players that are never going to be part of the future in that sort of role as all the good players and kids get the chance to develop with a full SANFL game, but still, 3 or 4 weeks in a row as sub would be a lot.

NUFC, YES.

Marshall should get games until the sun burns out, or until he’s superseded by a superior tall.
