Yeah I agree, he really is a good contested mark. Although the forward line would be relatively immobile, an attack with Nankervis, Riewoldt and Lynch would be great in the air. If we hit up leads with those three players in there, then I think our forward line could have a good day.

Not sure if we will employ such a tactic if it is wet though
If Nank plays CHF i would drop JR...

Be worse in the dry. West Coast would just waltz it out. Jack is nowhere near the player that he was before his injury. Struggling to cover the ground, his greatest asset. Chol at least puts the heat on at ground level and cover the ground when setting up our zone like forward press as good as a small. We are plenty tall enough with Lynch in the form he is. Crashing packs and taking marks. If you want to make McGovern accountable, make Chol tag him up forward, he will have the pace and it will lead to lots of spillages, something WC are not used to, and we love.

With Cotch ruled out, I would not be dropping Jack. Yes he is struggling at the moment but we need his leadership. I would much rather play Balta than Chloe. He is in better form and a much harder match up for McGovern. I would also like to play Menadue (or Markov or Naish) to tag Gaff. We need options come finals time.

Surely Ellis can tag Gaff. After all he is a defensive winger, or is he too important down back. I'd like the Balta swap also, also as insurance for an off the leash Darling.

Players of that quality, what a headache it would cause, then throw in the smalls in the mix - Wow. I'd say better to play Nank at CHF. And roam defence when we need him .

I do like the idea of Chol making McGovern accountable and when he goes into the ruck and Nank is on the bench, I'd move Caddy on to him and Castgna/Rioli/Stack up on the wing.

They play a very similar game to us in one way and completely the opposite in another. Like us, they like to sling shot from the backline and drive it quickly down the wing and into the forwardline. Unlike us, they like to use their talls to link up and frequently use the wings to drive the ball forward. Like us they have talls and smalls in their forwardline that can cause havoc, unlike us their rely upon clean entries.

The key to the game will be at the bookends. Stop their defense and we stop their attack. Stop their wingers and marks down the line and we break down their link up play.

If it keeps raining like this it’ll be 2014-2015 all over again, cooked before finals even start! :(

STAHP RAINING!!!! :( :( :(
Don’t stress, there are some important differences.

Week off between home and away and finals and apart from the Dees game we’ve controlled all our matches by HT since Saints. We’ve been saving ourselves in 2nd halves.

2014 that run home were close games often with both teams fighting tooth and nail for finals.
