Prefer Rory in defence, he excels there..With all this talk about wanting Day to play more time as a forward rather than chopping out in the ruck, I wonder if we will see Rory float forward again today and play the resting ruck role?
That leaves May and Warnock to handle Dawes and Frawley.
Forward line of Lynch, Day and Thompson with only Thompson shifting around.
There is a huge difference between Fremantle and Melbourne as far as defensive pressure and structures. It takes a couple of Melbourne to lose a bit of concentration, and some space will open up for Day and Lynch to run into. Matera needs to spend most of his time forward at the feet of the big lads.I think we saw what happened last night when a team that relies on mids and defence Essendon comes up against a committed team (St Kilda) that has a focal point up forward and is decent across the ground.
I fear opposition teams will just continue to flood into our 50 knowing we don't have too many forward options because we give them so much time with our chipping tactics
Paul Roos vs Bluey today
Their forward line monstered Carlton last week and looks very good with Frawley and Dawes.We should win this surely? They have the worst forward in the game by a fair margin so I am expecting a big game from the cannon running the ball out of the defensive 50 with ease. Can't see how the GOAT won't have a 40 possession, 3 goal game. Suns by 60 with Day getting his first 5 goal haul.
