Its nigh on impossible to predict the final 22 for the North game as we do not know which players will do their hammies between now and then.

But I will give it a shot.

Ryan - Hamling - Hughes
Wilson - Pearce - Cerra
Bhill - Fyfe - Langdon
Banfield - Hogan - McCarthy
Ballantine - Lobb - Walters

Darcy - Conca - Brayshaw

Giro - Mundy - Tucker - Dumin

Assuming that all of Cox, Sandi, Blakely, Taberner, Dixon, Shill, Valente and Logue are still unfit and Matera is suspended.

Looks close but there would have to be another half dozen hammies before I would put McCarthy in..

God we ll lose. Hogan and Lobb together with McCarthy. Ha. Would rather play Jones ahead of McCarthy at this point in time.

looks about right but I would guess that Tabs will be playing instead of Dardy and yesterday was just a precaution from tightness/cramping post-40 degree JLT1 6 days earlier

Regardless of whether you want matera playing or not, there's obviously a very different interpretation of what a strike is when it comes from a Fremantle player going off the footage they played on channel 7.
Looked pretty clear cut to me. Raised forearm to the head. He’s lucky it wasn’t rough conduct with medium impact.

You should all definitely go and read the Norf board now. It is hilarious. My personal favourite is this one:

From someone semi sensible who realises they just lost to St Kilda and Port Adelaide in the JLT:

From our favourite hissing fan boi:


Hmmm... So West Coast just won a premiership... and North just lost to St Kilda and Port Adelaide in JLT. Yep almost the same really :oops:

So much over confidence from them. Love it. Many would assume it couldn't get more crappy than we were today... clearly you did not watch North's JLT games. The most likely scenario might be a nil all draw come round 1. It will be a battle of which turd is less stinky.

We had no backline what so ever and never played Cunnington which is our equivalent of Richmond not playing Martin Geelong not playing danger or you guys without Fyfe he’s our clearance and contested bull, holds the record for contested possessions if I’m not mistaken? if tarrants fit by rd 1 him and cunners will be the difference but beyond all the bullshit I hope it’s a close match and both our sides have an okay year being underdogs and all 👍

Cunnington a certain starter?

Players missing didn't stop your mob having a crack at us playing against last year's two grand final teams. We were missing at least half a dozen key players in JLT - including 4 of our starting midfield. Cox and BHill also injured early in the game, Mundy and Walters were both managed after niggles early on as well. Fyfe will definitely play. Is Cunnington a certain starter? Latest I heard, he was 50/50. Rushing Tarrant back in seems very risky. Your backline won't be back for Rd 1 (JMac and Williams are injured now as well aren't they?) and neither will the rest of our midfield (nor Cox or Matera).

Like I said it will be a battle of which turd is best. Neither team will be anything close to full strength and both seem very underdone coming into round 1. I personally think you guys are still slight favourites but I don't get why supporters of either team would be gloating about how much better they are - that is what I found hilarious. Both teams were rubbish in JLT - I strongly doubt Fyfe or Cunners coming back in is going to turn either team into rolled gold instantly.

PS Cunners in the same league as Martin, Danger and Fyfe? Seriously? Um, no. More in the Lachie Neale category - good ball winner but nowhere near as impactful as those other three.

In regard to importance to their team is clearly what he is pointing to, which is a valid argument.

Tbh his post didn't make a lot of sense at all given the post of mine he was responding to. I just wanted to use it as an opportunity make fun of that 'Hogans not playing' guy again given he's lurking.

So from best 22 we will be without Hill, Blakley, Sandi (?), Cox, Matera, Logue (?).

Whose going to be missing from Norths best?
Thompson, Tarrant, Daw. Anyone else? Tarrant a certainty to miss?
Jacobs won't play and he's absolutely best 22. Taylor Garner too but he's been injured so long and so often we've kind of moved on without him. Questions over Macmillan and Williams it seems.

I'm pretty sure Taz will be right though.

Both Freo and North had shit JLT and injury list so far, I reckon.
I cannot be positive about North with tall player's absence and their improvement at the moment.
Like odds shows, I think Freo is a bit advantage about this game.
we need Tarrant, Anderson, Wiilium, Jmac and Cunnington back.
