Nah, because he is.
Not from what I’ve seen and the coaches don’t seem to agree with you.

I actually think Guelfi will do his play all over the ground utility role and Redman will slide back after spending a lot of time on the wing against Geelong.

Me too. Honestly my only gripe is TBC and possibly Mckenna out, but understandable because he has had a strange preseason.

EDIT: and yes I don't want Guelfi in the team unless we have to.
I'd have Phillips, McKenna and Gleeson for Laverde, Snelling and Guelfi.

Who would be the 7th defender if he and Redman are off?
Wait where’s McKernan??

is that forwardline what we’re going with?
Sick

I guess 16 minute quarters helps TBell, hopefully he can last.
God help us if Zaka and Langford are on the wings.

That is the most Richmond-y forwardline I can ever remember us fielding

Probably a reason for that, I dare say...

We genuinely don’t have anyone to play relief ruck with TBell coming off injury.

This could be very bad...
Townsend plays the Grigg role?
Shortened game expect each defender to have >90% TOG with Guelfi giving players a chop out if needed.
Yeah, fair call, I hadn't factored that in.

Plenty of them will have opportunities coming up with the shortened breaks between games.
