Looking forward to Answerth on Rozee.
I assume Oscar will be up there 70% of the time?Don't like our big forwards: McStay and Adams. Its time for McStay to reward all the patience we have had with him.
Not sure who I would bring in but it seems to me we need another key forward.
Probably because they don't do back to back either but also they don't appear to have much faith in their coach or their senior players to win the must win games.Gee, the Port fans are not confident at all. I know we beat GWS at their home ground but still, odds are they win this game.
We have shown we get a bit spooked once the crowd gets going, a couple of outs and back to back road trips. Plus we are due for a let down.
Smart money is well and truely with Port, if at the Gabba a totally different story.
It's not that I am not hopeful and confident (not bullish like before GWS) - none the less, I am surprised at their pessimism.
Fagan has given the indication wants to give Andrews a game up forward. I doubt this is the game he's going to try it. Fagan may lean towards debuting Payne when Hodge is present in defence to guide him. Still, we don't know if Fagan wants to pull a few tricks out of his bag. He's a Coach with a very flexible list at his disposal & he's admitted he's not yet sure what our best line up is. All this is very exciting for us Lions fans.Could be time for the much awaited Harris forward move with Payne/walker going back.
It was Bundy's first game back against the Saints that he was excellent. Kicked a couple of goals, including one cracker and was a man possessed with his defensive forward pressure and tackling and pinning much bigger opponents.Mmmm! Goes to show it's in the eyes of the beholder, I thought the exact opposite.
Edit- I'm confused now, I thought Bundy had been back for 2 games, I just had a look it's 3, Saints, Demons and Giants, can't recall now if the Saints or Demons game was excellent.
Adams is not a tall at 192cms. It's almost midfield height in this day and age so classifying Adams as a tall be it forward or back is wrong. Walker is 197cms. That's a tall & could slot into the forward line as such while Adams can go back.Adams, McInerney & McStay
He plays tall, and would be considered a third tall in the team this week!Adams is not a tall at 192cms.

Disagree. He is a strong man no doubt, but that doesn't make him play as a tall. Most players at 192-193cms can take strong marks (Bezza for example) but that doesn't mean he plays tall. Happy to be proven wrong.He plays tall, and would be considered a third tall in the team this week!
He has the capacity to take a good strong mark and can run and jump.
