I am pretty sure they have been pumping adverts for reserved seating for this game since the start of the year. It isn't their fault people leave it to the last minute.

Last minute....go on and look at the rows of seats they have opened up in 4 hours, all unsold; they are attempting to extract the $$$ out of us again to sit on Level 1 for $65...and the Member link is still broken and wont process.

Think I will wait for the usual Wednesday afternoon email $15 upgrade fire sale

When you go in and look there are Rows here there and every where...if the Club(s) were keen on a Sell Out these should have been open and not have you Tweeting them with a dumbo reply that we will make available more seats!

Sam Wright? Bring back Bailey Scott! My Supercoach team demands it.

Oh yeah, and make sure you flog Essington. It's no fun when the campaigners win.
Next to Kyron Hayden there's nobody else who comes that close to being a like-for-like replacement playing Marley Williams' role.

I don't think Sam Wright can cover that, Bailey Scott might, Kyron Hayden is close but still a raw prospect.

Hall and Polec are going to be so important against the scum this week. Last year we got annihilated on the outside by them. We have them covered on the inside, but it's for games like this that those two in particular were recruited.
Thought it was more you guys being uncharacteristically poor on the inside that let you down. Cunnington was the only one putting up a fight and he slowed after half time. I remember we had something like 10 extra clearances and Z.Merrett got was allowed to do what he liked getting 10 plus clearances.

You are correct last year your midfield destroyed ours that ultimately decided the game.

Out: TT & McDonald

In: Scott & Wright.

Desperately need extra run in the forward line against the bummers. I’d back in Scott to play as a forward pocket but get up the ground, provide pressure and get back to be at Brown’s feet when he has a contest. He is a little terrier and will love the opportunity to get inside 50.

Wright is the only like for like for McDonald. Deserves a crack because he found some form in the VFL.

Murphy before Wright
And I doubt McDonald cops the week. Nothing in it

Not sure if Sammy Wright can keep up defensively against Essendons speed, granted we won't be looking to play that way but when the rebounds on, I can't see him sticking a tackle and keeping pace.
We'll be right down back.

HF: Parish, Clarke, Tipungwuti
HB: Pittard, Thompson, Atley

F: Stringer, Brown, Baguley
B: Wright, Tarrant, MacMillan

It the mids and half backs that are a concern.
