Do you enjoy throwing your money away?

I’d say I’d be one of DV’s biggest fans on here - but not even I’d do that!
I’d love him to get 20-25, he’d be BOG I think. Hes not an accumulator but things happen when he gets it most times.

Hickey has been pulled out of todays game. Late call up?
Perhaps, or maybe he’s still not quite right. Still less than 3 weeks since he was injured. Maybe he pulled up sorer than anticipated.

I’d be inclined to think we have a late change, though.

Thursday games really throw out planning. We have to sacrifice a few on the off chance one wakes up tomorrow not well or has a late injury. Not ideal for player continuity.

It's been a while since we've seen some genuine "silly buggers" with selection. Melbourne didn't name Preuss in their 22 but he still flew over. We didn't name Hickey but he's not playing WAFL tonight.

IMO if Preuss is a late in WC will bring in Hickey and drop Allen.

A team is allowed to change their side once submitted right?

Is anyone else worried about Rioli being on limited minutes in the firsts? He should come back through WAFL if he's not up to a full game IMO. The comp is too even to play half-fit players. If we get an early injury our rotations are going to be screwed.

I'm thinking there must be some injury doubt on Allen. Simpson said that hickey couldn't #1 ruck this week as he CV is on limited minutes, may as well pick someone else if vardy was questionable. So has to be allen in doubt.

Loving the balance of this team now. A late change Hickey in for Allen would be betterer.

But really now to get us best 22 is Nic Nat in for Allen and Barrass for Schofield.
I'm thinking that Willi is a late out for Masten
Hickey is a late in for Allen.
Smith and Waterman are both playing WAFL
Who knows?

no - limited time for Willi is worth more that full time for our likely replacements

My concern isn't with the relative value of his contribution. The minutes he doesn't play have to be covered by other players. If we have an early injury then suddenly we have a lot of bench minutes for Willie + injured player that have to be covered by others.
