You are probably right - I just hope you are not!I think they will be a touch nervous leaving Selwood, Hawkins out, with Stewart and possibly Danger missing but they really need a rest.
So very likely we will see Higgins and Esava, not Neale and Dempsey.
Out: Hawkins, Selwood, Stewart
In: Esava, Higgins, Stephens
I think Rohan will need a VFL run, he has not had much football.
I posted about this aboout a month ago but could not find the specifics to it.... do you recall what they did for uis?
I know they were instrumental in our survival... but dont recall the important bits
I only consider Ratugolea because I know the club rates him more highly than I do and they’ll want to have him “in play” as we head into finals.Ratugolea surely reprises his role in the 2s. Higgins instead of Stephens is a possibility.
I'm going with
Rohan, Neale, Dangerfield in with the same outs
Edit: had forgotten Dangerfield existed
Calling north the tassie Roos is complete s**t stirring.
Actually, it’s pathetic.
You should be better than this but you obviously aren’t.
Change the effing heading!
I would like Sav brought in and Hawkins rested
Re Sav - i dont think he will make it as a ruckman - and i dont think he will make it as a CHF - hasnt got the football smarts - and has got an awkward ball drop
However he is a very good overhead mark - his one hope of making it in the AFL - is at FF - play him from the goal square - thats how id like him to play against Nth Melb - i think he is a chance to make it at FF
Hawkins who is 34 was deadset hopeless against Rich - played from behind - so i dont think it would be unfair to say next year may be his final year . And Geel have to make a decision on Sav - and Full forward is his only chance - so thats why id like him in this Sat - with an eye to the future
My multi really doesn’t want Cameron to miss these types of gamesI wouldn't mind rest either Cameron or Hawkins...
Especially Cameron as his history in injurys
People need to go away with SavHow about this…
Rest Hawkins. Not because he had a quiet one against Tigers, but because it’s the “safest” opportunity to do so.
Ratagolea comes in as FF and chop out ruck in the F50. Or Neale if MC/CS wanna go that way. If they don’t play Ratagolea, it would be danger signs for his future at the Cats but I think he’s next in line after Hawk and Jezza.
Stewart out, Henry goes to defence and Rohan comes in.
If they choose to rest Sel, then it’s Cooper Stephen’s, surely? If not, perhaps Higgins against his old mob? If they don’t, rest him against Port in 4 weeks.
So in closing:
Out: Stewart, Hawkins
In: Rohan, Ratagolea

Sav as stay at home foward, for me means, 5 dropped marks, 3 taken and 0.3 kicked. Adds nothing. Neale stonger, more footy smarts, will hold marks and will be able to convert. Sav has to be sacrificed to try and keep Neale longer termSav is the replacement player for Hawk if Hawk needs a rest. The reason Sav struggles is because he needs to play as the stay at home key forward and can't because Hawk does that. They're too similar.
Kolo is not going out and nor should he.This is quite possibly the best chance to give any of our guys who are sore a game off leading into a 5 day break and Melbourne.
Out: Stewart (susp) Hawkins (Sore) Selwood(managed) Kolo (Omit)
In: Rohan Neale Stephens Dempsey
Kolo is not going out and nor should he.
If Danger is right to go then you have to trust that the fitness/medical guys have signed off in it and are OK with the 5 day break after North.
So for me it is:
In: Danger, Rohan, Neale
Out: Stewart, Hawkins (rested), Selwood (managed).
Hawkins looked sore I wonder whether his back might have restricted him.
And why wouldn't he be.
He was single handedley responsible for at least Richmond Goals on the Weekend and doesn't have a match up against north
Larkey - SDK
Zurhar - Henry
Stephenson - Bews
Thomas - Touhy
Curtis - Z. Guthrie
So where does he play
