Pedlar was named in the SANFL but didn't play. Injured? If not maybe Tex out and he is the 2nd emergency

We have almost never gone in with a tall as the sub right? That infamous Tom Lynch sub game is about the tallest I can remember.

I bet Tigers were happy when a key mid was replaced in the first quarter by a 204cm bloke that averages 8 disposals a game. Can only imagine they had concerns that their ruckman could get through the game

Don't worry - most people not under the influence get it.

If you go in small, you can have a tall as a sub (like we have this week... though I would still use Jones).

If you go in tall, it is very unlikely you would select a tall as a sub.

We have seen talls picked as a sub plenty of times, including Soldo today for Richmond.

how did you and Mr MysteryGuest go with selecting Berg as sub?

1) I said we should, not would.

2) it’s obvious that we’re too short, having another tall would mean Murray doesn’t have to ruck, and our defence would be dominated in the air.

I don’t why trying to make a point, I’m being proven right, getting dominated in contested marks
