Leinert doesn't have the strength to be a kpd

If he is in the team he needs to be a pure flanker in the Bonner role
Disagree, if we are aiming for a flanker role it should be Mayes to come in. lienert plays as a tall. Mckenzie and Jonas to hold the KPD posts and Lienert the 3rd tall, but as always a back 7 with everyone helping out.

Pies are not great scorers and seems their main option is the mid sized De Goey anyway, so even if you are generally concerned, I do not think it is the week to be.

We are not finals worthy if we are worried about Mason Cox. We can always have Ladhams do a lot of the ruck work and have Lycett or vice versa drift back. DeGoey is the match winner we need to control and focus our structure.
Nullifying giant forwards is our main weakness.

Magpies’ burning question: Is Collingwood a genuine premiership contender?

Given Collingwood has fallen outside the top five in 2020, are Nathan Buckley’s team the sleeping giant in the premiership race? The Magpies have been around the pointy end of finals for the last few years – and while results haven’t gone to plan this year – they have proven they are more than capable to match it with the best. If there is a clear top six in the finals race, the Pies are certainly among it, even if they will need to do it the tough way and win four finals to lift the premiership cup. If they defeat Port Adelaide in a convincing fashion, the plaudits will begin to come for a side that is hungry for success as key players return.

Power’s burning question: What would a loss mean for Port’s Grand Final hopes?

Port Adelaide is locked in to a top-two finish, but could hand over the minor premiership with a loss to the Pies. Ken Hinkley’s team couldn’t have been more impressive this year – but are they one of the clear top two seeds heading into the finals? Ask the various footy experts and Port appears to be the side snubbed the most, as they begin to name their flag predictions. While they might not be getting the credit they deserve, it would be a slip up to fall to Collingwood on the eve of finals, given it has been the club’s most impressive season for a number of years.

Fox Footy expert tipsters’ verdict: Collingwood 3 — Port Adelaide 8

Bring in Westhoff for his farewell game... if he plays well enough to maintain his spot in the team, then all well and good - if not, then he’s an easy out week 1 of the finals!

Let's be real, the most like for like replacement for Clurey is Watts.

Westhoff has only played like 1 hour as key defence in his life and he got dropped for it

Westhoff played a game or two really well end of last season in defense. Of course he is out of form this year so I would be picking Lienert.
