If Reid is out who brings the forward pressure? I agree he should go out but for who? Allen agree probably has a bad corky and will be doubtful to be fit by Thursday, Williams in

Out: XON (unlucky) Allen (if requiring a rest) Nelson (If shoulder pulls up sore)
In: Redden (Should be good) Williams Jetta (only if Nelson goes out)

Backs are doing too well for Jetta to get a look right now and only comes in for injured backs.

I cant see Xon going out for Hutch. He played a great 1st game tonight and dropping him for Hutch who has not actually pushed a case is bad management of a kid. If Redden is right then sure,.he knows he was his replacement but he was selected ahead of Hutch and did nothing wrong for Hutch to come in at his expense.

I guess but the Richmond midfield have a few people Hutchings could tag. Agreed that Xon played well however it is hard in a scrimmage to put your case forward as a tagger. Depends on if they want to have the defensive option or not.

Think we go one less forward for this and play Hutchings as the extra mid rotation. Reid isn’t really impacting and Cameron isn’t a 100%. Also Nelson and Allen looked sore and can’t see them backing it up with a short turn around.

In: Bailey, Jetta,Hutchings.
Out: Allen, Nelson, Ried

I agree that Hutch may be useful- the turning point in the Tigers game last year was when Hutch was injured and suddenly Dusty became a factor. Big ask for him to do a job on Dusty 1st game back. If he does come in but I reckon we need the extra mid rotation so Reid makes way. Hutch can cover a forward defensive role too.

Do we do the calculated tank. Play the remaining kids and throw them into the fire? Likely drop this game but have the squad mostly fresh for the next couple weeks?
You are getting very annoying.
Wait? I thought you guys were the same person.....

And NO we can NOT tank against Richmond.

Tanking against Richmond will spell the end for our flag hopes this year and send a terrible message to the playing group. We will fight it out, win, lose or draw.
