Worst case scenario:

Out: Naughton, Wallis

In: Dale, Cavarra or Lloyd.

Lets hope it doesn't come to that though...
Can't see suckling coming in off a hammy straight into a final, would be a big risk.
Don't think we'll bring Schache in either. Rather go with Bruce and Cordy as forwards.

Worst case scenario planning.

Naught 😭, Wally 😭

Trengrove, Cavarra

Would choose a second ruck to combat west coast/saints ruck combos. And more speed and pressure forward.

Hopefully both are ok.

I did not like the Crozier forward experiment and think our defense works best with two talls and then Wood and Crozier which it ended up being in the second half. Keath is obviously going to be one of the talls as he is clearly the best so think we can only play one of Gardner and Cordy. Gardner has better form, Cordy has more runs on the board.

Out: Cordy
In: Dale

B: Wood - Keath - Crozier
HB: Daniel - Gardner - Duryea

R: English - Liberatore - Bontempelli
C: Johannisen - Macrae - Hunter

HF: Dunkley - Bruce - Richards
F: Wallis - Naughton - Dale

I: Williams - B. Smith - Lipinski - R. Smith

If Naughton doesn’t get up, Schache comes in.
If Wallis doesn’t get up, Cavarra comes in.

Praying for both to get up but didn’t look promising

Out: Naughton, Wallis

In: Gowers, Green

We need some more marking presence if we lose Naughton and reports from the scratch matches have Gowers as our best player over the last couple of weeks. Also, they specifically mention that his aerial game has been quite good. Likewise Green seems to be kicking a few here and there and is a similar type of player to Mitch - medium marking type. Good like-for-like replacements. Would be the first finals experience for both of them.

If Naughton is out, Dale in
If Wallis is out, Cavarra in

If we play West Coast and McGovern is still out, I wouldn't be surprised if we picked another small-mid sized player like Hayes instead of Dale and just swung Cordy

Until we find out when we are playing and the severity of Wallis and Naughton's there is no one not in the team that is not injured who should be in the team can't see any point in nominating changes.

If they both come up no change and the only player I would consider is Vandemeer if fit. No one else who is fit would improve what we had in tonight

Bevo said Wally would be ok and Naughton has a cheekbone and depending how high up it was he is a good chance to play. Also said Easton and Josh's wife are heavily pregnant so a trip to Perth would not be ideal.
