Not sure if we want to make any, although I wouldn't be shattered if Viney wasn't in the side.

Will be interested to see how we play the McDonald omission? Weideman didn't play VFL so I assume he was in the travelling squad. Play small or bring Weideman in?

Salem reported to be icing his groin so that's a watch too, wouldn't want to take any risks. Hibberd could come in or just a bigger role for Bowey.

Yeah you'd assume no change given we whooped em'.

Weideman/M. Brown/Daw on standby for T. McDonald if he needs a week off for his back.

Jordon could come straight back in if needed.

Declase/Lockhart not far off a run if we make any changes in the coming weeks.

Think well probably swap Sparrow for Jordon and that will be it. Goody doesn't like keeping the same sub each week if can be helped.

Not concerned with the TMac injury considering the score, "managed" most likely. Probably didn't help sitting on a plane for 90 hours if you've got a sore back already.

How did Sparrow go?

If tmac injured then tempted to bring in M Brown. Takes a big mark and can kick a goal or two same as tmac.
Weideman ? Had his chances.
How the hell does Port look a big chance for the 4.
Havent beaten anyone.
Frustrating.

Whose fault is it when we miss the top 4? If we drop this game, we're missing out on top 4 based on the fixtures of port and Sydney.

Wondering if this will be moved to Monday night given the need for 7 days of quarantine pre game.

We only fly today. Fremantle are playing the Lions here on Sunday afternoon so there's no other option if the game doesn't proceed on Saturday night as per the fixture.

Eagles are normally a powerhouse over there but in 2021 they are legitimately soft. Would be a terrible result if we lose to them.
