We are playing a pretty inexperienced side without Steele against a side who are pretty good on ball. I'll just be happy with a win at this stage.
I’d happily take a win as well, but without Sloane, Seedsman and M Crouch, their midfield drops off an absolute cliff in the middle after Keays and Laird.

Their next two in there are averaging 18 and 16 touches and they’re also likely to get slaughtered in the ruck, with Strachan and Thilthorp having played 19 games between them.

Probably Crouch to Keays and Seb to Laird and then you’ve got Gresh and Jones against Hately and Berry.

Only question remains is who will be the medi-sub. I'm tipping NWM or Wood.

Loving the look of the weather forecast and their backline full of Tyrion Lannisters.

Final question perhaps, whether to entertain a punt on the Saints over 39.

Go for the % lads!!
The sub comes from the emergencies

I don't see this side as being any less balanced than it was without NWM. Inside/outside balance is all relative to positions. The structure will stay the same. Billings roles into an attacking forward role. NWM takes Billings spot on the wing. Windhager becomes the fifth midfielder, though I expect he will still spend most of the game as a high half forward flanker. Gresham, Ross, Jones and Crouch probably all have a marginally higher percentage of the game as starting mids. Obviously the quality is lower with no Steele, but I don't see it as being too outside or lacking in balance.

They are both picked in the 22

It will be one of the emergencies

I'm nervous though. I hope we don't lose it. For some reason the ones that we should win are the ones I feel like we'll drop. Definitely not a bad idea to get game into the youth though.
Losing these games is hardly ever because of the young players you bring in, rather it's the vets that don't show up and perform as they're supposed to.

Really glad we haven’t rushed Butler back in. If his achilles has been giving him trouble for weeks (or all year as someone suggested) and was so bad against Melbourne that he wasn’t able to push off, it’s not going to magically be all better after missing just one week.

We need him as close to 100% as possible.
It's going to be interesting next week when Higgins , Clark and Butler are ready to comeback into the 22.

Jeez good luck to the selectors next week. Normally you’d go the first year players as the easy outs but they keep on keeping on. I don’t even think the coaches have a clue what our best 22 is yet. Great problems to have.

Very surprised with selection. Thought Nas would have some VFL time and that we would downsize the forward line but I guess not. Sharman is pretty athletic which helps I suppose but will be interesting to see how it goes on a bigger ground.

That forward line has an average age of about 22 years old. Good sign for the future.

If he was having a good one he wouldn't have been subbed off
You suspicious man, you….
( If they actually did that, they’d be taking a leaf out of the Port book, don’t mind it myself 🤣)

Seriously, I thought they said he’d had achilles problems for a while. In which case he’ll be out a few weeks, you don’t take chances with achilles.
