    Genuine forget, Salem has probably been our best player the last 2 weeks. Actually a better clearance player than I ever thought he could be.

    I was back on the lewy bandwagon against north but im off again

    Dunn/Pedo dropped because of their birth certificate while Lewis keeps getting games due to his 4x premierships. Selection hypocrisy

    Jack Graham, that is.

    Anyway, good luck and hope you bring it. What a fixture our teams have created.

    And we each get 2/3 of a day extra rest than our opponents in round six. Bonzer.

    I hope we bring it just for the pure fact that if this game is a belter for a while then there's no reason it can't average 80k for a long time into the future..

    Harmes should be dropped but I feel sympathy for him. Whoever thought he could play ruck and still play well was a ******* idiot and it's no surprise that our 2 back up rucks in Harmes and Trac were poor.

    Harmes, Bugg, Wagner out

    Tyson, Pederson and Hunt in

    Wouldn't mind seeing Lewis dropped but I just don't think it will happen.

    Have you seen how he tries to play? Guarentee he asked to do it. he needs to realise he aint that great and just do the basics well not try run through players or trying the dont argue at every turn or tryna take a screamer everytime ball is near him. bloke thinks hes a harlem globetrotter

    It’s 6 and yes I’d rather give Weideman a crack.
    At a key moment in the third Bugg had a set shot at goal that Hannan would’ve nailed. It was a set shot that could’ve helped stem the bleeding, instead it became a deflating moment. A valid criticism of Hannan is that he doesn’t get it enough. To be honest, I’d rather Hannan does 5 nice things than 5 of Bugg’s turnovers/misses.
    I agree that Lewis has been poor but I believe that he can bring more in a big game than the others I’ve dropped. Vince has been ok after a shocker against Geelong. The pair of them generally use the ball better than the players I’ve dropped.

    Wouldn't be the first player to ask to play somewhere, it's up to the coach to put him where he plays best.

    He's out of form, so are 20 other blokes but playing him in the ruck ain't bloody helping him.

    I have been of the opinion that we should only play one of Vince and Lewis. And until the weekend they were playing decent enough each week. Personally can’t see them dropping Lewis he’s seen as a leader and on field coach. Plus as we saw against north he still had some really good footy in him.
    Part of me thinks though that we won’t drop either just yet.

    I think they'd both be fine in the midfield, but they're not our most talented options there so we're letting them just **** around at half back. My patience is definitely starting to run quite thin.

    Had this discussion with a bloke yesterday and I completely agree.
    Need experienced heads don't get me wrong but it didn't seem to help last week so yeah, the backline just looks bloody slow with those two in it.
    Lewis was great against North and Bernie pretty good the first 3.
    In - Hunt, Tyson, Pedo, Hannan
    Out - Wagner, Harmes, Lewis, Melksham/Bugg

    I'm not going to say this is a blessing in disguise but...

    Also Nev should be fine to play.

    The Lewis injury should make things easier. I see Jetta actually copped an injury in the game, but is listed a test. Because he's been quiet anyway, I wouldn't be against giving him a week off.

    Injuries are terrible...but of all the players, this was the only way Lewis was going to get dropped I feel.

    No way, we desperately need him for those Tiger smalls.

    IN: Tyson, Pedo, Hunt

    FB: Hibberd O McDonald Jetta
    HB: Jones Lever Wagner
    C: Brayshaw Petracca Salem
    HF: Fritsch Hogan Bugg

    Lewis was good in the North game. Not saying i wasn't critical of his performance Sunday, but after breaking his hand in the 2nd quarter and playing out the rest of the game, makes me half excuse him

    This is getting a bit closer to our best 22, actually, I feel. Viney and TMac come in for Wagner and Pedersen. Lewis for Bugg, maybe. I like Wagner now though - reckon there's a spot for him and Stretch when Vince and Lewis **** off, and eventually you'd want him to even take over from Jetta.

    He's had an ordinary year thus far though. Same with Lever.

    Unless someone's banging down the door though he keeps his spot.
