Soldo, Nank, Chol and Balta are all fit and ready to play. Hardwick just said Nank is a probable starter. Do we need two rucks or one? Can Soldo and Nank play in the same side considering they haven't played together this year?
I think it's likely 2 of these 4 will play. I don't think we will play Soldo and Nank together but it's possible.
I think they'll they'll pick Soldo and Chol .

Dimma more or less said in his presser that Balta, Chol and CCJ are behind the other two.
I expect we'll play Nank + Soldo.
They haven't played together that I know of. It would leave us short of a mobile player. I can't see it happening myself. Nank is underdone.

The Tank is a walkup start and ready to rumble, no question. Plus he’s better than Marbs and Balta around the ground anyway. In Soldo, we’ve seen the benefits of a decent tap ruckman in the second half of this year. Clearly we were in denial about that last season. We’d be silly to give that up now.

Nank and Soldo, can’t wait!

I think Balta has a corkie, otherwise l would’ve just played the same team.
Would be too risky to play the two talls. But I’d like to see the big boys in, we need speed though and lots of it.

Are we going to have the resting ruck in the forward line with Lynch and Riewoldt? How many talls is too many?
That’s the million dollar question. Do you change a winning formula? l think Balta will make way for chol. Dimma is very excited about nank coming in so who knows. I say speed and mobility is the key to winning the game.

Can't see too much time when they're on the ground together with 70% game time each, means about 30%. Guess it will be needs based ie; if they have momentum then Nank down back, if we have momentum then Soldo forward. I don't think it will be as simple as that, but along those lines.

Not what i think they will do but id do it.

Nankervis against Martin. Chol in a fwd pocket with plenty of time on ball and Balta at the least on the bench.If their tall fwds get away from us or we are looking to stretch em fwd Balta gives us that flexability'. It would be nice also if we gave him more than a half of a game.

Im really hoping we give up on this nonsense of him playing as a back up ruck, ffs lets give him a specific role and develop him where he should be developed and thats as a KPP either fwd or back but lets develop him in the one role for starters.

We play so many of our youngsters out of their best roles and after they have shown they are up to their best roles at the level are given other roles. i reckon its us catering to the older players to some degree.

In the Finals against Brisbane its Nank & Soldo for me, up against two big boys like Martin & McInerney seems a no brainer, keep it same duo if we lose and face-off against GWS & Mumford next week. I'd only make a change against the Bulldogs with the more mobile Tim English, then I'd swap Soldo for Chol
