Unless Baker gets injured I'd like him to play at least 3 games in the 1s, won't happen though. Also no idea why Preuss isn't playing but whatever, selections have never been a strong point under this match committee.
I am not sure the changes were ever going to make much difference to the result. Glad we get to see Baker have a run around and Keilty is back to the VFL. Outside of that it will be business as usual when the Eagles thump us tomorrow night
‘Sam has pulled up a bit sore in the foot after training this week, the plan is to de-load him completely over the next week. So he will be off legs until next weekend then resume normal training the week after’
WCE aren't a high scoring team, the move the ball slowly out of the backline which is to our advantage. The question will be can we kick a winning score, will WCE play quicker to try and catch our depleted backline and expose our defenders.
The tears from West Coast flogs over here about the state of the surface are beautiful. This will play like a wet weather game. Should reduce the impact of Kennedy, Darling and McGovern and suit our contested game. Attack it like Port did and our chaos style might just work this week. Strange feeling we’ll cause a huge upset .
I'd hate to play in our forward line with the delivery and disjointed ball movement we have and when we're at our best Trac is there winning 1v1s and setting other players up
I agree he's got his flaws, especially mentally which is resulting in some bizarre set shot routines, but with Melksham out he's probably one of our last remaining players that can set play up with creative/skilful play
2 years ago he couldn't miss from a set shot, we need to stick with him, he's still pretty young and just needs to mature, I don't think dropping him with our injury woes is going to help as much as playing him in 1 position, backing him in and letting him remember how to play on instinct
