At least with a key forward you can understand it. He's the best in that position for them by a long way. Bellchambers is barely better than Phillips at all (he's probably worse in my books) and Philips is match fit and ready to go.
Yeah I can’t understand why they didn’t go with Phillips, he looked to cover the ground very well and made smart decision in link up play. Bellchambers is going to be so cooked from rucking I cant see him being out bail out target down the line, so that leave us with Laverde? We could be in some trouble tomorrow if we are playing from defense.

Truly is stupid when you think about it.

Can't be any worse than telling the players not to celebrate goals with each other.

Like it makes a difference after they've been sweating all over each other for more than 1hr playing contact sport.

We're playing because we have no corona. It's not going to materialize out of nothing.

All these measures really highlight is that we shouldn't be playing.

It is the AFL, though, so image is what the AFL says it is, not what the AFL does because there is no one to stop/compete with the AFL.

who comes out?
Snelling maybe?

I kind of agree that Phillips will come in. If we play an underdone Bellchambers as the only ruck without Mckernan or Hooker to back him up I’d be shocked.

Your thoughts Dapper? Who do you think will come out IF we add Phillips?

yeah I'd hope its Snelling out and Phillips in...just plonk Bellcho down in a forward pocket as whilst he cant run he can take a grab and kick a goal.
