North are absolutely woeful.

Do we take the opportunity to debut some kids in the easiest game of the year or go unchanged so someone like Lynch can paper over some cracks?

Surely Worrell needs to make a debut. He looked white hot in the trial game.

I also would not be against switching Frampton for Thilthorpe. Had a dirty game, but our SANFL team is going to be really bad whilst we have the injury list we have. Whereas, our AFL team side is on at the moment. Not exactly a form pick per se, more parachuting a kid out of a bad situation and into a good one whilst we have a good situation to offer.

I’m not changing Frampton. Not a fan. But don’t mess with what’s working for Tex. Don’t mess with what’s working in the forward line in general.

Feel like this North game comes at the worst possible time. We switched off in the first. Hopefully this game doesn’t have us get too carried away too soon.

No changes. Including Crouch.

Frampton :( has hands like concrete --- OUT --- not to be re-selected until:
--- he can mark
--- he learns how to kick.

I'm not against Frampton going out, but I don't really mind if he's still in the side either

Either way, I would LOVE to see Worrell next week, but I don't know who comes out
I'd consider "resting" Luke Brown to bring in Worrell

Kelly saved himself although ultimately is not a long term player

Frampton - good depth, not first choice, Tilthorpe I reckon.

Murphy / Rowe - need more from both of them; wouldn't mind seeing Newchurch, probably Murphy goes out, give Rowe some more time.

Lynch - would consider for Fogarty.

Really want to see Jones in the side, and given an easy money type role; but him on the wing and tell him to focus on attacking. We need to get this kid up and running.

I'd actually like to see more of Frampton in the ruck, he had some nice taps in the middle which we really lacked. Was disappointed we didn't give him a crack in the 4th.

Newchurch is along way from playing a game.

As much as I'd love to see Thilthorpe come in for Frampton, can't see it happening. I think we will go in unchanged.

I really want to see Fog play in this team. Has had 2 good showings as a big bodied mid/forward in a row at SANFL level and you just feel that he's the kind of player who will feed off the energy of this young, hungry side.

Give him a run in Lynch's role, he looks cooked.

Would love to see Worrell but not sure who goes out maybe ther sub but dont like idea of .
McHenry was terrible until last qtr where did a couple of things to get another game.
Frampton is competing well and as nobody putting their hand up so get another game.

Soft spot for Brisbane
After a win like that, it seems silly to suggest that someone should be dropped.

MAYBE Murphy to sub, Murray to SANFL and Worrall into the 22. Berry is doing a lot of Murphy's pressure work already, so that could work.

But they're not going to want to deflate this momentum through unneeded changes.
