If there was any week to go with more runners, I would think this is the week.Bevo just continuing to see how few he can have in a team. Every time he gets one out he can add another flanker.
Richmond struggle to run out 4 quarters. If were even close at 3/4 time we should run over the top of them. Harsh on Roarke but Butler has been playing a pure wing role at VFL level and my faith in Hunter is shaky so we just have to give VFL performers their opportunity.
I would have tried to get McNeill into the side though - yeah he kicked 5 goals, but 9(!) tackles is outstanding for a mid, let alone a forward.
Williams only played half a game last week so should be fresh too. Riewoldt is possibly underdone and is slowing down - good opportunity to run off him at every opportunity.
Balta is the concern. Gardner has to go to Lynch who is a monster, so we've got a debuting O'Brien on perhaps the best pure athlete in the competition. O'Brien is a much better player when he doesn't have to fill in as a pure KPD.
