Out: Jones, Mackay, Kelly, Crocker, Hamill (injured)
In: Smith, McAdam, McPherson, Stengle, Worrell

Hamill very unfortunate
Jones needs a spell to reset. Completely void of confidence

Mackay, Crocker and Kelly aren't good enough for AFL
I'd probably rather O'Connor instead of Worrell.

I want to see Worrell, but I would rather see us play another midfielder.

Crocker was last in, will be first out.

Rest looks good.

2 concussions in just over a month for Hamill is a HUGE concern.

Can basically close the thread with this.

So...

Mackay for Smith.
Kelly for McPherson.
Crocker for McAdam.

Jones could use a spell. Shuffle things around so he goes out for Stengle?

Hamill injured. Could use this to play another kid, but might also provide a reprieve for Kelly or Mackay.

Hartigan is the big one. He's 'managed' so you assume he comes back, even though he really shouldn't.

Now, I don't want to drop McAsey, but three talls down back is excessive and you cannot play him, Tex, Lynch, Fog and Berg in the same forward line.

Berg competed well, and we're wedded to the tall forward/2nd ruck structure, but I can't see them dropping Tex (even if he was pretty insipid tonight) or Lynch, and Fog needs to play for the sake of the future, so... ???

It's hardly worth discussing when the cattle isn't there. The hard part is most of minimal stats came from our young blokes. We can't afford too much youth. Our list management is too unbalanced now. Combination of cooked older guys and too much inexperience.

It's simple.

Pick the senior players who deserve to be, which isn't many.

Then take the hits by playing kids.

As I watched Jones, he seemed to be chasing and reactive. Rarely saw him making his own metres. Not sure.
