do you think with the young boys pushing for selection traecy and sturt. maybe tabs will get pushed out due to consistency?
He’s our leading goal kicker with 5. All with a bad back. He’s about as important to the structure of the team then Fyfe is.

Sturt probably pushes out a Colyer or Giro. Treacy, Tabs, Darcy/Lobb can coexist

Sturt is a totally different player so he won’t bother Tabs position but re Treacy, not this year or next you wouldn’t think, but he will need to stay fit and healthy and maintain form. Good to have pressure on spots.
Lobb comes in for Meek, as Darcy builds his form and fitness. Treacy and Tabs with Lobb would be a mare. Add Sturt as a fourth forward with Walters. Plus Switta and Schulz. Holy moly

Fyfe Treacy Lobb Tabs Sturt and Meek/Darcy will be hard to fit in one side. Fyfe would have to go back as a full time mid for a start. Jlo loves defensive pressure so would be surprised to see all the above named if available.
Was impressed with Sturt pressure at ground level last night though.

If Logan McDonald was on the Fremantle list would he be playing this weekend for us if so, who would you drop for him?
He's not Logan McDonald though.

Let alone the possible difference in talent, McDonald has spent an entire season playing and excelling against men. Treacy has basically missed 12 months of footy.

I think I would prefer Henry getting minutes on the wing rather than forward. Switta and Shultz are better than him forward atm.
Switta and Schulz have to stay in. Their pressure and goalkicking is as important around the talls. Walters doesn’t provide any pressure. He can be used up the ground, midfield. Henry shouldn’t play this year, build his fitness for Peel and up against if bodies.

Switta, Lobb, Schulz
Treacy, Tabs, Sturt.

Fyfe and Walters rotate through

Hope we have thrown out the zone defence and have been furiously practicing man to man defence all week

Agree. Averaging 2.5 goals, 3 contested marks, 12.5 Disposals. Someone has to look likely to beat that first before we talk dropping Taberner.

Btw very, very decent stats when he really carries something.
Using him properly, finally. He literally injured himself to breaking with his 12 k games with 20 disposals and 10 marks on the wing, with only a goal to show for it.
One on one, rarely loses.

And all that while having below average games. How will he look if he has a good game...
