Can Goody continue his dominance over Bevo?

In: Gawn, Baker, Lever, Jetta
Out: TMac (inj), Hore (inj), Petty, Lewis/ANB/Lockhart

Would love to drop both ANB and Lewis and bring in Jordon or Bedford but unlikely to see five changes after a win. Lockhart probably needs a spell too but I do like the cut of his jib.

Lewis probably will be suspended. Lever for hore if jetta for petty. Who replaces TMAC?

I’d keep Preuss in even if Gawn is back. Preuss and Gawn swapping forward. Assume Lever comes in for Hore. Unsure if Jetta comes straight back in.

Nev was on limited minutes so probably another week or 2 in the vfl . I guess that means Josh Wagner is back again.

Don't need that many talls in defence v the Dogs. Frost can take Naughton (really what you need is Lever going third man up to cut off Naughton's aerial supply), May can take Bontempelli when he goes forward and Lockhart can take Schache when that happens for all I care, he's a lemon.

I'm a fan of Hannan but he has done absolutely nothing since returning to the side.

Im not sure what the benefit is of brining back Lever now that the season is dead; this is on the assumption that a longer recovery can only help him in the long run.

He needs to come in and get some touch and confidence back ahead of next season. Pre-season is great, but he needs to actually be in the team and actively learning the structures.

I think the main benefit will be him and May working together and marshalling the defensive group, which they were brought in to do at great expense. Better to learn how eachother play now than next year when it'll be so important to start strongly.
