Impey out? Besides not conceding one today the the bombers have Colyer/winderlich.Trengove out is the first thing we have to deal with it. At first glance you'd think Clurey is the guy to come into him, but when you think about it a bit that's probably not the best option. We still have Carlile, Hombsch and Jonas in defence, but Trengove out makes Westhoff the second ruck, and that means we're down to one key forward when Lobbe needs a rest. That's bad against any team, but it's damn near suicidal against a team with Cale Hooker, Jake Carlisle and Dustin Fletcher in their back 6. So I think we need to replace Trengove with a tall forward, not a defender. Butch has kicked 1 goal in the last two weeks, and Shaw has kicked 12 goals in the last 3 weeks. That makes me lean towards giving Mason a surprise debut.
Sam Gray out for Young. No deep tactical reason for that, Young is just a better player. Kern will probably bring in Cassisi but I rate Young higher, especially since he can go forward. I think Mitchell did enough to keep his spot with 12 disposals, 6 tackles and a goal (technically the goal went to Polec but Mitchell did all the work), but he should stay as sub and Young should get a full game.
I'd also consider Impey out for O'Shea. The Bombers don't really have the sort of player who requires somebody like Impey, and Trengove out means that the extra height down back wouldn't hurt.

Out: Trengove (inj), S. Gray, Impey
Colyer is a poor man's Kane Mitchell who will probably get the sub vest, and Winderlich is about 4 years past it. Much more worried about their talls getting away from us, and we've still got Jasper back there who isn't exactly a plodder. O'Shea's strength was going in as the third man up, and we'll need that against the 200cm Daniher who will be playing on guys 7-8 cm's shorter than him. It would hopefully also free up Jonas a bit to take Paul Chapman.Impey out? Besides not conceding one today the the bombers have Colyer/winderlich.
Its time to give Shaw a chance. Adelaide played well, but we shouldn't be losing games like this - its happened twice this year and considering the opportunity before us (ie: A premiership) that is simply unacceptable.First thing's first is to remove the SANFL guys who expose us at AFL level, sorry SGray and Mitchell.
Now let's not play injured players, Trengove.
Let's bring in the guy who actually has an impact at AFL level, Aaron Young.
Now our structure is kind of a mess, we are missing a backup ruck and are one tall short. Bring in Mason Shaw. And let's reward someone playing well in the 2s.
OUT: Gray, Mitchell, Trengove
IN: Young, Logan, Shaw
What did Logan do wrong last week?We made a huge mistake not playing Young today.
He deserves to have a full game next week against Essendon.
In: Young, Shaw (if Trengove is out injured)
Out: Mitchell, Trengove
