    Why you’d pick Honeychurch over Greene at this point is quite bewildering to me.

    Would have preferred Greene over honeychurch

    Last chance for Roughead to get a new contract

    Surely we wouldn’t have many players left bar the 4 emergencies

    No point playing Roughy against Gawn, either play Trengove in the ruck or legit just let Gawn ruck on his own all day & play someone smaller & faster to get around the ground.

    I can understand we are struggling for numbers & whilst I don’t agree with tanking as I don’t think we are intending to lose, look to the future & play youth!

    That team wouldn't beat many VFL sides .. it is a pretty obvious tank

    According to the bulldogs website 'Saturday’s match will mark the Dogs’ first outing at MCG this year, with the team winning its past six games at the venue'.
    There won't be a 7th.

    So we managed to get another two random injuries during the week it seems? Cant see Boyd or Crazier being dropped on form.

    Boyd was getting plenty of massages when he came off the ground last week. So the news that he is out doesn't surprise me.

    Yep, it keeps getting crazier each week...

    Club website says Boyd (back) and Crozier (hamstring tightness). Two surprise injuries a week is just about par. :rolleyes:

    I'm tipping we'll use all four emergencies this week:
    Young to replace Morris (bionic arms need servicing)
    Roberts to replace Adams (so top heavy he fell over and couldn't get back up)
    Greene to replace McLean (severe neck bruising)
    Campbell to replace Daniel (helmet rash)​

    Not ideal to have those three players injured. Biggs will swap down back you'd think in his spot, Honeychurch to have another go at it and Roughie to show us what he is made of. I don't see this as a tank really, more a matter of the cupboard being bare (outside of the listed side and emergencies, the only fit players we have are Collins, Porter, Mullenger-McHugh, English and Webb we literally only have 9 spare players at the moment).

    As for Greene, whilst I agree it would be nice to see him get a game, he did only have 2 handballs in two and a bit quarters of football last week. He also has another year to show us what he has so there isn't a real need to rush him.

    No sense throwing Greene to the wolves when we have a weak team in. Better to play him when we are a chance of getting a few kicks being directed in his area.

    I get a massage down at the local ethnicity-not-mentioned massage parlour every week and it's got nothing to do with hamstring tightness

    Not sure we lose that much with those changes. Having said that tough to to see us getting within 5 goals.

    Strange calls. Given Honeychurch practically does nothing should we have just gone with Campbell instead and played the extra tall? Or does Trengove go into the ruck with this set-up? Either way it looks scary with Roughy v Gawn.

    Unless Melbourne place a flag pole inside 50 I’m struggling to see a matchup for Trengove.

    Brendan Goddard had similar post season ‘treatment’ in Thailand several seasons ago as many know. Let’s just say it was dark, mistakes were made......and he never came back the same player.

    If we get within 5 goals, I will give ScragCity a ‘Goddard’ massage....

    All the semantics boys - we are going to get flogged. Why did not we try something different: Debut Caesar in the back pocket?

    I reckon Boyd doesn't have the body yet for full-time rucking so he's probably been pulling up really sore after games.

    Tom Campbell is an emergency this week, he is either getting real close
    to selection or we are down to twenty six fit players. :devil:
