Happy with the changes, would have liked to see Phillips out as well but that will come when We start to put together our best 22.
Going to be some interesting position changes on Saturday I reckon... looking forward to seeing how we line up.
Moore to stay down back and play on Cameron.
Dunn to line up on Patton.
Sidebottom needs to play forward for mine.
I like Brown in the middle - he looks a natural mid rather than a forward so would like to see him start there.
How about someone like WHE at full forward?
How I would like to see us line up:
B - Howe Dunn Sharenberg
HB - Murray Moore Crisp
C - Treloar Pendlebury Maynard
HF - Thomas Reid Sidebottom
F - Varcoe WHE Crocker
R - Grundy Adams Brown
INT - Langdon Stephenson Aish Phillips
Ah jmac70 you like stirring the pot. I wish Berg well this week and hope he blossoms from here.
I was one of the posters you discussed this with. You have even quoted my "well outside the best 22" comment which was made in reference to him starting well outside the best 22 for the start of the season. At the time you jumped on my comment and claimed he was clearly carrying an injury although you couldn't substantiate the claim and there has never been any reference to that and Berg seemed to play practice matches and train from the get go this pre season.
You may also recall me clarifying my remarks to you saying he would start the season well outside the 22 with these comments
"Will start VFL for the season and have to make a move from there."
"Doesn't mean he won't fight his way back in soon enough."
"This seems more plausible than the idea he is carrying an injury that keeps him out of the seniors but isn't bad enough to preclude the VFL."
So how did it play out?
Berg started the season well outside the 22 as evidenced by his non selection in the 22 or 4 emergencies despite 6 other best 22 players being MIA for round 1. He starts in the VFL last week, reportedly "looked at home at half back" in a match report on our site putting him among the standouts. Injuries and suspensions occur in the AFL side from round 1 and he fights his way back into the 22 soon enough. No signs he was ever carrying the mystery injury.
My conclusion - GC nailed it
Moral of the post - Self praise and use of the 3rd person is worthless and can make you look like a tool poster but it sure is dependable.
I’m not sure you did nail it GC. From memory I said Schazz probably has a niggle and is building up to match fitness. That may well have still been the case. Regardless, he’s back in the best 22 by round 2, which indicates he is still very much part of plans this season.
We certainly can agree on the hope that he has a great game tomorrow.
