I thought Melksham was good tonight. Just my opinion, but I'd be keeping him in.

With Casey having no game this weekend, I am going to say no change this week (fingers crossed the Petracca cork isn't serious).

After 2 hard games I think this will be a real danger game for us to get up for.
Chandler in for either Fritsch or Melksham.

Sparrow in; Brayshaw to Sub:... too many mistakes with the ball, almost cost us the game.
......................

Fritta is too casual when we don't have the ball. His intensity needs to become consistently good. He eases off too often.

Max was half asleep in the 1st. But responded somewhat, later in the game.

Could be unchanged, or a few changes if players are sore.

Melksham's 1 goal might unfortunately keep him in the team. Bloke really needs a spell in the 2s and a reality check though.

It's a shame that Sparrow, Chandler, Weideman can't break into the team ATM but it is what it is.

Jones for the sub to bring that game total up.

Simon says 'Petty stays in for now"
Can understand Fritsch being held by good opponent , but some of his efforts late in the game in midfield were not good enough .
Trac looked sore as fu** , but hopefully gets up.

Again thought Petty looked like a concern in the first quarter but largely didn’t notice him after that, clearly improving even if slowly. Until we lose it’s not an issue for mine, esp given there’s no ******* way TMac should be moved back and Joel Smith isn’t fit.

Doesn't matter if Smith is fit. Bringing him in would be terrible.

Probably just Melk out for Chandler. Brayshaw on notice. Stop panicking so much Gus.

Streak ends this week or we thump Carlton. Last two weeks we’ve gotten away with two pretty average performances carried by some individual efforts and our back 6. Positive is Carlton play a pretty free wheeling style so we should find scoring easier.

Given the garbage we’ve served up against Carlton in 2017, 2019 and 2020 to still come away with the win, this is the game I’m least concerned by for the rest of the year. Huge respect for E Curnow, Walsh and Weitering - if we can control them we should get the job done easily.
