Agreed. Structure is more or less the same. Maybe a little bit more dynamic/rebounding with Cordy -> Williams, which I'm in favour of.I love a good selection melt and as a board this week's performance has been pretty solid, but I don't really get the oft repeated view that we've substantially changed our structure this week.
We've made 3 changes to our 22.
The 1 unforced change was dropping a defensive winger, Roarke,r and replacing him with the most obvious Footscray player for the role, Butler
Then we made 2 forced changes;
- A KPD ,Keath, for a guy who has been playing KPD at the club we recruited him from, presumably to play the same role.
At 193 some say he's not a genuine KPD, but he's strong enough to play Ruck minutes, so he seems as equipped as any of the options I can see available to us this week
- Then a 3rd tall/hybrid type defender in Cordy for whom we chose Williams as the replacement.
Now maybe we could've selected slightly differently, maybe Khamis fitted the role slightly better, but Keath and Cordy are both experienced options and TOB and Williams are similarly experienced.
Cordy v Williams is not that major a change for mine.
I just don't get why people see these particular changes as being some kind of major change to our structures.
With Soldo out, Richmonds ruck structure most likely will be Nank doing the vast majority with Lynch or Balta doing the balance.
