In. Tdk, Kennedy & Dow
Out. Jones, Lang & Fisher

Levi to defence. Tdk forward & relief ruck.

I'm glad that little pest Gresham is not playing for them. Ed to shutdown Steven.
Our best tall defender, Weiters to Membrey.

Love to beat this mob, which has a tragic history & whose supporters claim is a great club, yet have only won one flag in over 150 years, albeit, a lucky kick by Breen out of a pack, to dribble through for for a point for their only flag in over 150 years.

Let's show them a REAL club. Let's do it for Crippa and the other milestoners. Go Blues. ;)

As reported by Sarah Olle (foxsports) we did really well 2 weeks in a row to remain competitive against this years likely grand finalists.

A win this week and a competitive one against the handbaggers will be strong indications that we will climb the ladder rapidly next year and well and truely make the 8 the following year.

Not to many changes for me:

In: Kennedy & Dow
Out: Jones & Lang

Casboult goes back.
Harry, McGov, Kennedy the marking options up forward. Good balance.

TDK has been injured a lot this year, let him develop and introduce him next year.

This is a must win game, we are not just giving kids games anymore (I know tdk has been playing well for a few weeks)

Yep gotta agree with everyone else, Casboult back to cover for Jones. Goddard not up to it at the moment. Harry & Gov to be our talls with Kennedy the 3rd 'tall' fwd.

Otherwise you could bring TDK in for another taste and play him fwd/2nd ruck with Casboult still going to the backline and not 2nd ruckman.

Sad to say that Fish has been awful the last few weeks, and needs to earn his spot back or work on his forward craft over the PS.

I'd bring Lang (offered little) and Fish out, with Kennedy back and Cunningham for the last fortnight. Could bring Dow back if we want a third change, but I'd rather see O'Brien get another chance. He definitely didn't perfect in the wet.

Cuningham didn't play on he weekend did he? Wouldn't think he'd be fit enough to play AFL after on subpar game in the VFL in about 8 weeks

That is what I have been thinking as well, Casboult is a much better option back than Goddard and it gives us a chance to see what TDK can do.

Also agree on Lang out (for absolutely anyone TBH) and Dow seems the most logical.

I watched the game again last night and I didn't think Fisher was anywhere near as bad as people on here have been making out, when he was involved good things tended to happen. Strangely I would be happier to see De Luca out instead of Fisher if we want Kennedy in, De luca worked really hard but his disposals generally ended up with the Tigers and he should have ended up with 2 goals but didn't score at all.

A lot of people putting Cuningham in the Ins - do we know why he didn't play VFL last weekend?
I can't imagine him playing in either of the last two games at the minute with hardly any game time since the bye.

In - Dow, Kennedy
Out - Lang, Jones (inj)

Lang has had his chance, he's not offering much. May as well put a kid like Dow in even if he is out of position.
As others have mentioned, Casboult to float back as required. Harry, Kennedy, Gov up forward.

You can't blame them, they have monstered us in the past.
In the 00s it was 12-3, this decade it's 9-6. It's definitely evening up and it's likely you'll shoot straight past us.

Hopefully we won't be back to the old days. During the previous century we only won 30 and lost 190. 😅

I'm really looking forward to this week. It's arguable that you guys have more to play for. One more excellent effort should seal the job for Teague. And it may just sway Cogs to put pen to paper.

With Jones out I think we'll win, but i sure as hell aint confident. Finally, I'm hoping Rowe plays, it'd be nice to have a feelgood story instead of the usual negatives. It'd be fantastic to see both sets of supporters cheering a great club man.

Anyway, good luck baggers, let's hope it's a great game.

Will be a good test for where both sides are at, late in the season

Although, the result is not really an indication of what is to come for both sides.

Not disrespect to your young talent, guys like Gresham, Billings, Battle etc continue to show they can reach new levels, but I still prefer our youth moving forward

Hopefully it will be a cracker game

All good mate. The progress of Clark and Marshall this year has me seeing some light for the future. Hopefully, this time next year, both our clubs are fighting it out in the top half of the ladder.
