Listening to Kenny’s selection presser from yesterday it really does sound like Ken’s jury is out on Frampton.
He was pretty effusive in his praise of Garner and other players but his comments on Billy were telling.
Sounds like he is almost challenging Billy to prove him wrong ( sadly most likely Billy will be a late withdrawal due to rain, have missed 2 weeks a row of match practices in the seconds, and be sent back to prove himself again)

Billy has one job, if h stays in ( most unlikely) he needs to put his selection beyond doubt, don’t give Kenny any excuse to drop him, and eventually become a formidable tandem with Marshall as Dixon’s ability to regain his best is a corncern.

Nah if it's a wet slop fest he just needs to hit the packs with vigour like we know he can and just cause some spill, if Ken judges him purely on goals kicked he's a bigger dh than we suspect.

Really happy to see Frampton in, really unhappy to see another tall go out on account of Westhoff being selected as tall forward.

Hoff will be playing in the ruck. At least that's what my Ultimate Footy opponent this week seems to think - they have Hoff as their ruckman, with Brodie Grundy on their bench :oops:

If we drop Marshall and don't play Billy, I'll burn Ken's ******* office down.

I’m not at all convinced Frampton will play.

I think Hinkley will push Howard forward and plug the defensive holes from those listed on the bench, Westhoff floating back to help out.

Frampton has been thrown into the extended squad to shut us up for a couple of days.

If Frampton can't take any contested marks then we are in trouble for a while. Good to see he's getting a shot.

Hopefully some stick in his hands so we don't have to do "repeat forward 50 entries".

He has to take a few grabs but if he doesn't and straightens us up so our small forwards can crumb and get the ball in dangerous spots so they can kick goals.

He just needs to contest and look dangerous. I'd be happy with a poor man's Dixon.

I'd like to think that will be enough but it wasn't for Butcher.

Frampton has to kick a couple. It's the only thing that will keep him in the side.
