Yeah reckon it could be Wagner.
I'd be going in like:

B – Hore, O Mac, Lewis
HB – Hibberd, Frost, Salem
C – Brayshaw, Oliver, Jones
HF – Petracca, T Mac, Hunt
F – Garlett, Preuss, Melksham
Foll – Gawn, Viney, Harmes
Int – Fritsch, Lockhart, Stretch, ANB

Ditto. Hoping we can win this comfortably.

It could maybe be Stretch who makes way with Viney back into the guts pushing Jones back to the wing again.
Yeah that's a good point. Jones did play more inside last week so with Viney back in, you'd think Jones would be playing primarily on the wing this week so perhaps Stretch will be pushed out of the side.

Fritsch's first half was diabolical, although I love him as a player and he lifted in the 2nd half, I hope we don't stuff his confidence around too much making him play out of position in the back half, I feel like we should get him kicking inside 50 which might allow Melksham more time on ball which we seem to be pursuing

ANB has been ordinary all year so not fussed there. Have to admit it's odd that our number 1 tackler from last week gets dropped though.

Going to be a disaster if Viney isn't 100%

Does Keilty really provide more than Preuss?

Thought Preuss would come into the side. Anyway, I don't mind that we're going in with just the one change and it'll be good to see Keilty get another game. ANB I think is a bit stiff but with Viney available someone had to make way.

ANB was much better last week. I just understand that omission. My only reasoning is that they see ANB as more inside so its a like for like or they just need to drop someone to get Viney in.

It should have been Wagner that was dropped. Seriously. Dumb dumb change.

Drop a defender for a midfielder?

Melbourne would drop everyone for a midfielder if given the chance.

I hoped Viney would play steady as he goes and give himself another week - just so that I don’t have to look at half a dozen heads over each ball and not one prick outside waiting for the receive again this year.
