If Treacy plays next week there's no selection integrity
We have to stretch West Coast’s undermanned defence. Hurn comes in and will grab anything as usual if we just play Tabs.
Sturt is miles off AFL. Besides he more of a replacement for Crowden/Colyer then Treacy.

No way is Cox okay, there was too much interest from team mates after the siren, and you could read the frustration on his face.

Out- Cox, Treacy
In- Tucker, Watson

Treacy did draw off a defender, but he did nothing else, the team went to Tabs every time because they know Treacy is raw and Lobb can’t kick.

Send Fyfe forward more in the derby, back him to turn the shanking around.

If stretching the defence with height is important then play Meek instead - it will make more of difference both in the ruck and up forward and he was playing well in the WAFL the week before. What I said would happen with Treacy happened tonight - it isn't good for his confidence and it is not good for the team integrity to keep playing him.

Hard to defend Treacy this time. West Coast will eat him alive even without Gov.

He's probably not fit but Sturt should play.

Sturt isn’t going to provide that. A Shepherd or Hurn isn’t going to worry about him. Lobb with Meek and Darcy perhaps? Eagles play three talls. Think might play Lobb full time FF and just play Darcy and Meek in the ruck
