Surely Trew comes in? O'Neill is so underwhelming every time he plays. Never has any impact at all.

What I'd like to see:

Out - Vardy, O'Neill , Langdon or Cripps (if Cameron is available)
In - Jones, Trew, Cameron (if fit)

Probably what will happen:

Out - Vardy
In - Jones

If Kennedy is fit he plays. Cripps won't be dropped as he's a structure man, had 7 tackles tonight. Petra isn't on our injury list so I assume he would be available? O'Neill is 50/50 after a underwhelming performance tonight, if we shine in the 2nds then he might miss too.

In: Petreculle, Trew

Out: Vardy, Cole (inj)

In my opinion, we should hold off judgment for changes until tomorrow when the Beagles play.
Yeah this. How can we possibly judge who should come in?

Having said this, I’d strongly consider dropping Vardy, resting/managing Kennedy, leaving Duggan in the backline and moving Nelson back to replace Cole. So that’d leave three spots up for grabs for the boys to fight over tomorrow.

I would consider resting JK. He looked slow and sore tonight. We will gain from keeping him fresh

Langdon will be lucky to stay. Any peep of Petrucelle being available and he goes back to WAFL

Not sure on Cole - looked like a load of blood but hopefully no concussion

Let’s hope they play Jones in the WAFL tomorrow

Bailey - don’t rush him but I really want him to get some WAFL form. Oscar is too good to be pinch hitting

Richmond and Collingwood.
Out: Vardy (near useless), Langdon, Cole (concussion), Williams (if fit and if we rest JK).
In: Petch, Ryan if fit or Jones if Ryan's not fit yet, Foley (if we go for a medium defender) or Trew (if we go for a mid), JK (should we rest him).

We're literally a man down with Vardy in the side, one mark and two disposals, near useless. He has to go so we can play smaller. Either Jones or Trew has to come in. For Cole as been average at best but he's out with concussion so Foley has to come in should we play an defender or Trew comes in as that extra mid, moving Duggan back to his natural HBF. Our forward pressure was good but I didn't see Langdon provide any so Ryan has to comeback in if he's fit but Jones should take his place if we somehow retain near useless Vardy otherwise as he provides more pressure than Langdon does.

Personally, if Bunga is back and fit again I'd play him in place of Cole. That way we have extra rebounders with Witherden in the side and Bunga can defend as well. Reminds me of 2018 and 2019 with Bunga and Jetta together.

Allen needs to stay out the ruck even at the risk of playing Vardy (if not Williams).
Probably too tall with 2 rucks + Allen, so Waterman plays some WAFL to find form.
O'Neill deserves another week.

Would rather Harry Edwards playing second fiddle in the ruck.
You know that at least he is going to have some impact around the ground.

Out Cole and Vardy (hopefully no more surprise injuries late in the week).

In... whoever isn't injured I suppose. JJ and Ah Chee maybe. Duggo can go back if required. Ah Chee can surely do a better back up ruck role than Vardy.

Not many possessions ol' Vards, but he did have some super tap outs to advantage.
