Well, he'll be named in the back pocket. Marchbank isn't playing a key defender role to allow Weitering to play loose. I want Marchbank to play, how he fits is another question, but it won't be as a FB/CHB and it won't be taking Plowman's utilitarian lockdown role. Marchbank is an intercept defender with top shelf running ability.Ahead of Marchbank, SPS & Saad..
Marchy plays on the 2nd tall to allow Weiters to swoop.. SPS or Saad lockdown the small forward and the other provides the run..
I reckon we can probably pencil this in as the starting back 6, could swap SPS and Doc but I think we'll see SPS play more HBF than BP and Doc often plays the sweeper role.
Plowman Jones Docherty
SPS Weitering Saad
The 7th defender is going to come from Newman, Marchbank, Williamson, and maybe Stocker.
