    He's also our most logical match up for Wright

    I highly doubt they will drop Ambrose despite the height difference with Wright.
    Hurley rested is the only way Hartley plays.

    He kicked a nice goal and did some nice things in 3rd qtr. He had 4 disposals to half time and was spent late in the game when they rammed on 3+ goals.

    Time to throw to a few youngsters and bring in some excitement. Some passengers have had too long and Watson deserves to play out the year. Hartley I would have brought in but not for Gold Coasts forward line.

    Baguley Ambrose Gleeson
    McKenna Hurley McGrath
    Goddard Merrett Zaharakis
    Laverde Daniher Stewart

    He played the game out. Not sure if there might've been a corkie at some point.

    Zach Merrett; really missed his quarterback role giving that option and kick to get the ball out of defense.
    Bird: Extra grunt and experience in the midfield.
    Begley: Has been held out of the team for too long - while others fumble and have little impact on the game.

    edit: forgot Baugley


    Out:
    Colyer; I've been calling for him to go to the VFL since before the bye. As has been said (BPB maybe) he plays like a second ruck - where even players like Stewart are better below the knees.
    Howlett: tries hard but doesn't impact the game enough.
    Green: Is the Howlett of the forward line.

    Leuenberger did a pretty effective job on Jacobs last night with many pointing out today that the latter struggled to have an impact. Leuy stays in.

    Tempted to leave Luey in if TBell is anything less than 100%

    Colyer should be dropped but will probably stay if Walla is injured.

    Jobe and Howlett should make way for Merrett and Mutch.

    Begley for Laverde.

    Begley must come in for Colyer. The token one goal per game is worthless if for every fumble below the kness or ineffective disposal we miss out on a goal or get one scored against us. Enough is enough. Have a massive pre-season, Travis.

    Mutch for Watson: I like the idea of resting Watto. If we win, great, Watson could come in fresh for Freo. If we lose we don't play finals and Watson against Freo for a final game is a dead cert.

    Hartley needs to match up with one of the bigger GC forwards and distributes better than Dea.
    Merrett for Howlett.

    I'd like Laverde in through midfield... not sure who makes way though, so maybe not.

    After this season we will be playing youngsters unfortunately the club had it's hand tied by the players bans guys like Howlet,Hocking,Stanton etc wouldn't be on our list otherwise.

    I don't think so as Hocking, Stanton and Howlett have barely got a look in. Selection is way too conservative. Do we really gain anything playing Howlett over Begley, Mutch?

    I agree but it would have been disrespectful to show them the door after what the club put them through had to take them back imo.

    Watson will only be rested if Watson wants to be rested.

    Reckon we would be improved with the following changes. And show respect to the guys that went through all that ASADA crap.

    Hocking for Watson (rested)
    Stanton for Colyer
    Z Merrett for Howlett
    Begley for Laverde
    TBC for Luey
    Baguley for Dea

    Wouldn't surprise me much if that was the case. I would question Hocking and Stanton coming in before we're out of the finals race though; Hocking will be a million miles off the pace and we could do better than Stanton for Colyer if we need to drop Colyer. They'd be likely enough changes in round 23 if we lose to GC next weekend though.
