No change. Just what we all wanted.
I'm not sure (Shaw?) there was a whole lot of option here.

It's only an issue if there's under performance which is then back up by lack of action at selection committee.

For mine he gets 3 rounds. We should have settled after this week. Clearly last week was highly emotional.
Next round it'll be put up or shut up.
The next round he either stamps his authority as coach or doesn't.

This of course is on the proviso that our inconsistency is maintained.


Interesting
You implying Shaw's lack of changes validates Brad's years of selection table inaction.

Should be trying to kick the ball and maintain possession this week. If we try and flick it around we'll play right into their pressure trap and get done by 10 goals.

Fine with no change for the moment, as long as I don't see the exact same hapless, crumbling-under-pressure, handball-happy gameplan of the last decade. I understand Rhyce is a caretaker and not a full-time senior coach, but hopefully with his newfound authority he'll make some tweaks to the gameplan in order to adjust better when the opposition brings the heat. Not expecting a win, but would really like to see some small changes in how the boys go about it

Last chance saloon for a few tomorrow night

I also heard that Hall is a likely in for LDU
Who would you say is in that last chance saloon? And what will we find out about them that we don't already know?

At some point, we have to make a conscious decision to bring a few more of the young players in to give them experience and see what they have.

We won by 4 goals last week, and the same 22 are all fit. I suspect that's the reason for no change. Pretty easy to justify, really.
Yes it is although it is worth noting that Richmond also won by 4 goals, the same 22 are all fit from the game and they have decided to bring 3 new players in - including one to replace a gun in Rioli.

Mate?

C'mon. Do you need to watch the vision from his last game showing how easily he got brushed aside or how little impact he made?
Wouldn't you rather see Taylor or Hayden instead?
You know I would rather see Taylor or Hayden in, but let the guys set his own line to be crossed and then they all know what the deal is. Don't worry you'll here from me if history repeats itself.

I like the way there is no bullshit with how the team will line-up. Everyone is named in their actual position, perhaps I'm being overly pedantic but I hated the Scott way of naming the selected side.
