Hartlett has worked into solid reserves form, the week off means he can get his quad right.

In: Garner, Hartlett
Out: DBJ, Lycett (suspended)

Charlie mentioned something about the Gold Coast rumoured at a likely ground. If we can't have the MCG that's pretty good. Hate marvel.

Fantasia for Lycett (suspension 1 week plus Port)

DBJ isn't going anywhere

Out: woodcock
In: fantapants

Lycett also won't get a week. The umpire was right there and didn't think it was anything more than a free kick. Maybe a fine at worst but low impact

The reaction on players for:
1. Having a good game for a change then they are elite; or
2. They had an unusually quite game then they should be delisted;
is astonishing.
The early clearances were terrible (loved the way Grundy chased his own taps) and it took us a while to respond.
We lol a bit too tall in the forward lines.
We look a bit too short in the back lines.
Don’t know if anybody has any stats, but overall, we do not look like a quick side, in comparison.

Surely something is up with Hartlett?

Perhaps he has committed to a trade and the club has shunned him to the Bs?

Is he suffering a mental health issue, but is not willing to go public?

Has he just lost the competitive desire?

Is he physically just not able at the moment?

Smells like option 3 but not worth speculating on.

Fantasia for Woodcock.
Clurey for Mckenzie.

If suspended, Hayes for Lycett.
Great call about Clurey. He’s starting 18. The games he played before the broken jaw showed that he was, next to AA, our most consistent and reliable backman.
It’s also unfortunate that Lienert can’t even make the 22 and will always be a perennial #23 or #24 unless there’s an injury in the back lines. It’s time they tried to reinvent Jarrod.

If Lycett misses and Mumford plays, I'll be very tempted to pick GWS.
I like Ladhams as the second ruck, but as first, Mumford is the type to destroy him.

Fantasia has missed a lot of football. You'd have tp give him a run in the 2s wouldn't you?

I really don't think Lachie Jones is best 22 this year. If a small back goes down, I'd be picking Hartlett.

Getting our talls at the back right (along with our midfield) is our biggest conundrum. Alir, as good as he's been, has seemed to disrupt our backlines cohesion.
McKenzie is good against forwards he can use his body against, but can get lost against mobile players. Him and Jonas seemed tp get completely jumbled in their match ups. Clurey for McKenzie is a neck and neck consideration.

As good as Bonner has been in the last 2 weeks I still don't trust him. His last quarter last night shows the real Bonner is never far away.

Woodcock goes out as soon as Fantasia is available. I'm just not sure it will be this week.

Bonner goes out when Gray is available. Bergmann for Lienert is the other consideration. Lienert gives us extra height, Bermann is classier.

Is there going to be a 2’s to give Fantasia a run in?
