Is Gawn a 100% in this week? Him and Pruess are your huge advantage against our ruck division...
We might beat you in the ruck but your mid sized HB and HF line will engulf us. No way we can stop you. On your way to the 8 I’d say.

I’m one of his bigger fans but his touch with ball in hand has been off for the past month or so. Could use a spell IMO.
His touch has been off but he's building. I don't think playing reserves will teach him anything. He's a pick and stick but he needs a defined role

Why are you so opposed to players finding form in the VFL?
Because it's not about work rate for him it's about finding touch and you can't do that if you keep being dropped after 3 games. He isn't a kid without confidence he's best 22. He will find form.
Everyone wanted Melksham and Harmes dropped last year and they worked through it.

I don't think ANB's form is the issue so much, rather he's not a particularly bright player and he has poor skills. He does try hard, though.

Edit: I still want Melksham dropped.

Think it will be Gawn and Lever in , whether Petty is omitted will depend on his concussion and if if he is over it. Would like Nev to get some more time in VFL before bringing him in . Losing T-Mac just when he decides to regain some form pretty much sums up our year , but leaving Pruess or Max down forward or both alternating is not the worst idea i have heard this year . More worried that the dogs will suck us into a battle over the ball and kill us on the outside. They were pretty good putting the Cats away, but they also have a record of losing to teams below them . fu** knows how this game will go TBO

You'll have some big ins this week and our results against sides below us on the ladder this year have been awful. Max always tears us one and young Timmy is only learning his craft.
