Lids is 12 days younger than me. I certainly wouldn’t want to play against Bont or his brigade of early 20s beasts

Some are very underdone also. They know their second tier players aren’t good enough so they’re going all in with a group that may not be 100%.
Will work in our favour

Im preparing my post game melt template blaming it on Beveridge's selections.

Ballsy selections from beveridge.

Cannot say i am going into this game as confident as i was in 2016.

Youngest side in the comp in round 23 and going in unchanged is certainly ballsy to say the least, must be one of the youngest finals sides in a while. Would love to see some stats on that.

The no changes suggests to me that Bev and the club wanted to make the top 8 to get a finals game into some young players Smith, Young, West, Lipinski, Naughton, etc

Very inexperienced side for a home and away game let alone a finals.

Jesusss i would’ve thought dicko would be a definite in.
His avg of 3 goals per final is insanely good, as unlucky as it gets

Query our undersized backline and no Trengove support vs Mumford.

But about West? WooHoo! Doesn't get a game for most of the year, now playing in an AFL final!

Beveridge is so unusual with his team selections. Not in a negative way at all, but he drops West after his first game which was solid. But then keeps him in over Dickson in an elimination final, when Dickson is always one of his first picked. Choosing to keep Young in the team over Trengove when he left him in the VFL all year takes some huge stones.

I love it because it's great for future development etc and the match committee know a hell of a lot more than me, but just so unusual compared to what most other coaches would do. I've given up trying to guess the changes at this point haha
I reckon we’ve kept West in for a bit of campaigner

Sydney Saturday forecast: 11 - 20 degrees. Partly cloudy. Winds westerly 35 to 50 km/h.

Those strong winds will be blowing across the ground. Will that help us? The advantage of their superior foot skills may be reduced. More chaos balls for us?

That is not Bevs style, he will picking the side he thinks is the best chance at winning and making a run for it.

Interesting that for a team that doesn’t have great defensive pressure, GWS have chosen 8 talls in comparison to our 5. It’s a fair discrepancy.

Cameron, Himmelburg, Finlayson, Taylor, Mumford, Davis, Haynes, Corr

Naughton, Schache, English, Young, Cordy.

Quite a few
Bit nervous about this one TBH. Obviously big placement of faith from Bevo in the kids with going in unchanged.

Also worried about dickhead Greene. God I hope he gets an aboslute bath
