No senior players to be risked this week!! Play those who Clarko is unsure if they will play round 1 ie, Simpkin, Hill,Anderson, Spang but please please no senior players. North in Cragieburn means NOTHING, Geelong at the G is a vital game.

id be inclined to play lake imo, needs that 1 more extra game of match practice i rekon, same with cyril if he is right to play. I understand there is a risk that they might get injured but we need to be looking at the bigger picture here, we dont want be playing catch up early on in the season because half our list is under prepared.

That would be a nice luxury to have, but if we don't play close to our best 22 for this game, when are we going to do it? After next Saturday all that is left are intra-club games and that is just not the same. Injuries happen whether in a match or at training. You can't wrap these guys in cotton wool.. It's time to put the best we can out there and against good opposition in North who we play in the early rounds

Totally agree!! At this stage youd have to say cats are well ahead in terms of preparation, wins on the board plus less injuries bodes well for them!! We seem to have played a mish mash of different players each week and have been unable to deliver a final blow to chalk up a win!! Play everyone who is right to play i say!! its crucial to have unity leading into round 1:thumbsu:

Play the side we are playing in round 1, get these guys ready to go, forming the systems now that they'll use in Round 1 against the Cats. We've stuffed around for the last month, lets start to get serious.

We'll play a strong side, gotta test the systems and get everyone right. We'll still have 16 days until our first game.
