Pickett probably needs a spell. Very close but not enough, we need more legitimate output. Not sure who takes his spot, ANB is back from suspension I think... Bedford...

I would drop Melksham for Fritsch but it'll never happen.

AVB doesn't offer much either.

Pickett might need a spell, but we need pace. Not just keeping Pickett in, but also adding more pace. At present, Pickett isn't a liability. We have many of those, but he isn't one. We need to lose Jones, OMAC, and Hannan. Hibberd may also be out with that ankle, but Harmes could replace him without too much damage being done. We need some leg speed. Bennell for skill and class will be welcome, as well as some serious leg speed, possibly Bedford or Baker (if both available).

Dunno who for ins. Let's say:

Tmac in defence, Fritsch, Baker, Bedford, Bennel, (Lockhart) or Harmes for a bit more grunt.

Dunno if Swans warrant another tall defender so maybe no Tmac. We have Tomlinson in case so maybe bring in lockhart only?

I feel like multiple changes this year isn't that bad when there aren't proper 2's. Plahers come in pretty hungry.

Jones' mistake was terrible but he came back reasonably well in the 2nd half and was another cool head deep in defence. Was interesting seeing him almost play back pocket.

Bedford, Bennell and Fritsch in for Kozzy, Hannan and VDB would be my changes. Maybe TMac in for OMac if we throw the towel in and try him in defence. He better stay out of May's way though.

If Hibbo is sore then bring in Lockhart

If Hibberd's injury means he misses, bring in Hunt to play half back.

Warney's IPL team!
Fritsch for Hannan

Pickett probably needs a spell but don't know who for
Wagner earned his spot.
Omac take a long walk off a short plank

Jones goes out aswell
before the game on Foxtel they showed top for pressure inside 50, think kossie was number 4.

this isn’t justifying his spot just an FYI

Kozzie is a 1st year small forward. Gonna be a lot of quiet games, but I reckon he was still covering the ground and putting on pressure well. Needs to dial back the razzle dazzle a bit and just do simple things. He is a smart player and can pick good options when he actually takes the ball, so a few less of these tap one and actual disposals would be nice
