You could be right. Apart from all the other factors involved in getting a win away from home, it'll be very interesting to see how this structure shapes up, and how it all pans out on the day.The team sheet says Chris Masten (omitted). It doesn’t say rested or soreness or any specific injury. Other than the tweet from Travis King that Masten was walking laps at Monday training there’s no suggestion that there’s any injury involved in his omission.
He was dropped
I think it’s a somewhat belated acknowledgment from the match committee that our midfield mix hasn’t been working and they’ve removed the poorest performer from that group
We’ve brought in our best performing forward to redress a structural issue that has been discussed on this board regularly in recent weeks
Mallen can consider himself unlucky but he’s not better than any of the remaining mids and he’s not been playing as a forward so Waterman was preferred
