Same I feel we win and win well. I also feel that this over confidence could easily haunt me.

We are still a young team, young teams have off days. Hopefully not this week. Or if we do, we still manage to find a way.
I like to think I'll be fairly understanding if we do lose this one, as long as it's not pathetic like some of our efforts last year.

Interesting ruck choices for you guys this week.

Essendon is a team that really struggles with clearances with an underdeveloped, inexperienced and skinny rookie ruck in Nick Bryan. Both Flynn and Mumford are likely to dominate against him. Makes a lot of sense to rest Mumford and utilise Flynn's mobility instead, with a win in ruck contests being a given.

Injuries now at a catastrophic level.

In: Lloyd, Bruhn, Shipley
Out: Reid, Buntine, Daniels

Perryman/Whitfield play deeper to allow Shipley to play wing. Lloyd for medical sub.

Selection next week will be interesting after another 2-3 soft tissues this week and no one slated to come back.

Mummy can't play 3+ games in a row without a rest. Surely they rest Mumford this week, give Flynn a go against barely VFL standard rucks, and have Mumford primed for matches against Richmond and Eagles with Nicnat.

No chance. Leon is obsessed with him.

In fact I predict he'll get picked up by GWS in the 2023 mid season draft after he retires

Think it is more likely they play stone for Reid.
Bruhn for Daniels.
Lloyd will probably play 2's to get some game time in, back up in 1's the week after
