What is the record for the most hit outs in a game I think Nic Nac is about to break it. Schache in for Naughton I hope we do not get a Schachelacking it will kill our percentage.
NN's record is 50 in a match but this year he is averaging under 70% game time so he is unlikely to beat that.One ruck against NN would see us get destroyed.
If thats the case then Bev is slipping back into bad habits. Surely Sweet is on that flight.
I don't think either of those wwere on the plane..Hannan out JUH in.
Get them to play the same role. Continue to be kicking to grass like we did versus Geelong & JUH would absolutely love that. This tactic with JUH to take advantage, will change how defences have to play against us.
Crozier out Sweet in.
Crozier is one of my favourites…. BUT he needs to go back to the twos to get some confidence. We really need Sweet to play this week and I think Williams is the ideal player to play 3rd tall.
I would like Wood to return, perhaps for Cordy…. but I am not making that call this week.
Very few competitive teams have had a #1 pick let alone a KPP. Along with the fact he played no footy last year it's not really that surprising but I understand the angst to see him in the seniors.If Richards pays this week this will only leave JUH, Hayes and Benendo who has not played a game this season. I am pretty certain none us predicted this with JUH but watching him play for Footscray he is not ready.
He should play at half back where he breaks line!Are people forgetting how disappointing Richards has been over the last two seasons? He struggles to win the ball and is prone to butchering it by foot.
Wallis should stay in for Hannan who just hasn't done enough and has had a much better go this year than Wallis.
If Martin isn't playing it's because his shoulder is no good. He didn't play VFL last week. Sweet got absolutely towelled up by Gawn. NicNat would have eaten him alive. If we're destined to get dominated in the ruck (which we are without Martin) then why bring in Sweet who gives us nothing around the ground?No Sweet or Martin is amateur hour.
Worst case this week we had to protect %.
If Nic Nat fires we will get flogged
Because at the very least it pushes English into the forward/ruck position which is his best position. Instead he's going to get pounded into all day by NicNat.If Martin isn't playing it's because his shoulder is no good. He didn't play VFL last week. Sweet got absolutely fowelled up by Gawn.

We just lost a game because we went with one ruckman and nowe are doing against a top 3 ruck one out again.Because at the very least it pushes English into the forward/ruck position which is his best position. Instead he's going to get pounded into all day by NicNat.
My question is how does Martin go from into the 22 to being managed to then not being able to get up the next week. Unless Bev is playing silly mind games it makes no sense.
Wouldnt be a shocker to see bev playing tricks though.
If Sweet plays instead of Hannan we win the Geelong game. No doubt in my mind Tom Stewart and the Geelong defence are more accountable with English also lurking down there.
I was part of the "tank" crowd because I feared this would happen. One ruck dooms us.We just lost a game because we went with one ruckman and no w we are doing against a top 3 ruck one out again.
Some people suggested we tank this game and we basically are with this selection.
