So I guess we have Cox as an undersized KPD and then a backline full of flankers...half of who don't really enjoy defending.

Beauty.

This might be good for NOD, Leno and Walker as they will all get to play Peel and NOD might even get a look in the midfield.

Be interesting to see if Valente stays or goes. I think he should play for Peel.

Have you seen our injury list the only thing we’re getting out of this hub life are two floggings.
Maybe. It at least gives us time to see who can drop back as an extra tall defender. I’d train Lobb down there and bring in Meek to ruck with Darcy.

Lobb on Daniher ( just do it freo, make him accountable and get him involved)

Logue on Hipwood

Cox on Mcstay or whoever else is the 3rd tall.
Inclined to think Daniher would slaughter Lobb unless Brissy decide to take a leaf out of Freo's book and kick it on top of his head all day.

I did forget Griff though. Another game for Watson too so some silver linings.

Either way if we get out of this with a 5 goal defeat I'll be pretty happy.

Daniher is way too smooth to be manned by Lobb. He'll get in front and Lobb will be left trailing. Lobb will smash him if they stand still but Daniher doesn't like to do that.

Besides the injuries, we're not travelling that bad.

I for one expected a derby loss so i didn't get down about it post game. Eagles were always going to respond, it's unfortunately in their nature. We tend to go into our shells against them.

It will be different this weekend. Might not win, but i can guarantee it will be a 4 Quarter effort. Heard we're going over earlier than usual, which is a good thing.

Either Meek or Treacy has to come in, easy to say in hindsight but it was a mistake to lose the height in our forward line. Won't happen but I wouldn't mind both in with Lobb out.

May as well play Treacy, Valente, Henry and Giro!
Lose two from injuries, and play Aish back.
Put Giro on a wing, and god knows who takes Hughes spot.
Lobb maybe.
OMG being a Freo supporter is harder than making a living!

I feel like Lobb could play that interceptor role Ryan so good at.

He's got long arms and is a good mark. I'd trial it for a couple of games.

afl.com.au rightfully going after our defensive effort today with a well below average pressure rating, good.

Call them out. Watch them burn themselves out to send a message back this week.
Before half time it was well above the Eagles.

That's great, but the 3rd quarter is the Premiership quarter.
I think our mids are tired, Mundy sore, Fyfe & Brayshaw walking today.
They have started well, but they need some help.
Tucker and Valente could help with that
