I have not seen Footscray play this year or last so am in no position to question your suggestion. But based on my watching of him in senior games any sort of impact let alone physical impact has not been evident. Has he been showing something at Footscray this year?Garcia in for McNeil (need some physical impact)
Given he is just back from a long term injury, noI have not seen Footscray play this year or last so am in no position to question your suggestion. But based on my watching of him in senior games any sort of impact let alone physical impact has not been evident. Has he been showing something at Footscray this year?
Oliver Gigacz did you have an opinion on Darcy's ruckwork from the weekend?
In last year's disastrous final against Freo when Lobb and Sean Darcy were toweling English and the rest of our midfield, the best we looked during the onslaught was when Sam Darcy played minutes in there.
Just my 2c but happy to be proven wrong.
No current season stats available
Have not felt this confident in a perceived 50/50 game since the cats game and we know what happened there. Oh well at least we are not playing a Chris Scott team that we just cannot beat for some reason. Plus, the swans supporters believe we will get an armchair ride from the umps. Cannot believe they are still banging on about the 2016 Grand final. Ok we did get 12 more free kicks but I doubt that made the difference we won by 22 points in a canter at the finish.
If VDM is pushed up the ground to replace Smith, Cleary would be some sort of chance as his precise kicking would be valuable on the smaller SCG.Lobb Out (omitted) - Darcy in
Smith out (illness) - JJ / Garcia in
Gardner out (ankle) - Bruce in
I'd still try to fit Cleary in somewhere, he deserves a shot more than most, been putting together a real strong VFL season this year
They have the biggest Whinging fan base in world Sports
Don't need to preach about prolonged cold wet weather causing depression.Baz wouldn’t be dropped but might want some time off to recover from illness, whether mental or physical. Prolonged cold wet weather can cause depression or a lowering of the psyche, especially if you’re particularly prone to those issues.
I've watched the 2nds all season Cleary has been outstanding he's quick can kick nice hands decent size.In: Darcy, Cleary
Out: Lobb, Smith
Either Caleb or VDM to Smith's half forward role.
Cleary really needs to be rewarded with a game. With 3-4 of Dale, Duryea, Daniel, Richards & VDM playing, we can afford to bring in a genuine medium defender into the side. He can certainly play a role on a Hayward type.I've watched the 2nds all season Cleary has been outstanding he's quick can kick nice hands decent size.
Sweet is a great centre bounce ruck taps to advantage and has mongrel in him. Poor old Khamis can't get a look in done nothing wrong can play both ends.
Darcy is a future star of the game Sydney's little ground will suit him play him for christ sake.
So bring those 4 in that's my bloomin lot.
