We should be used to it but we definitely don’t like it.
Who knows.And how many missed tackles?
It's not like Hawthorn have the tall forwards to stretch us. We've got options for Gunston if it comes to that.Out: Gov, Masten,
In: Rotham, Rioli, NN
Initially was worried about going in with too many forwards, but NN will have limited time on ground and Hickey doesn't rest forward anyway. So we'll have 7 forwards as per normal.
I reckon we won't risk Barrass.
with Masten gone that isMajority on here seem to be hoping he keeps his spot.
Reality is that small forwards has gone from our biggest weakness to our biggest strength and we have too many:
(With Venables also to come back from concussion injury).
That is a lot of high quality small forwards and now MC has some big decisions ahead.
I'm not sure if any team has ever fielded 5 small forwards but personally I would love if an effective system could be found that managed all 5 of those players, possibly it could be done with some sort of midfield rotation.
