I don’t think this will happen. However, I was looking at McEvoy at a few centre bounces and thinking how old and rugged he is starting to look. He also still had a smoldering look in his eyes and was completely up for the contest, so I doubt he’s going out.In. Patton
Out. McEvoy ( managed)
Scully had his best game for a while in the wider spaces of Optus. With Henderson injured, the Hawks won't be dropping Scully any time soon.OUT: Burgoyne if injured, Scully i would omit
IN: theres plenty of talent we have yet to have a good look at, Walker, Greaves or Maginness could easily get opportunities
Lewis we saw at the back end of last year makes the team better. Unfortunately we may have to wait until next year for him to find that form again (I hope)Confident because we play wider grounds aka Optus Stadium and MCG really well generally.
TOB stays despite his frustrating dropped marks.
Honestly don't think bringing Patton or Lewis into the team makes us better. Keep a smaller, faster lineup.
Burgoyne extremely likely to be managed which opens to door up for either Minch/Morris probably. Wouldn't be overly surprised to see cousins/jones get another gig either.
It’s technically a bye for us but our game is on Monday which is in 8 days time so it not really a proper bye. We really just have and extra couple of days off on our normal break.Just checked the replays to confirm my details.
By 3 quarter time, he had a slight swelling already. After the hit in the 4th is when it ballooned up to Abasi's screenshots within about 10-15 seconds. If it is just swelling, then he should be right to play especially as we don't have a game next week.
I'll also add that the commentators didn't say it was soft or should have been holding the ball, they said it was lucky. However, their reaction pretty much said the former.
Ohh you are right - my apologies. 8 days is still a bit of a break but not a two week break. Hopefully it is enough time for him to recover (and anyone else who is sore). I’d like us to go in unchanged against Freo.It’s technically a bye for us but our game is on Monday which is in 8 days time so it not really a proper bye.

Possibility of young Damon Greeves playing against Freo in front of his family and matesClarko isn't going to drop anyone from that side.
Only changes if injuries...Silk's hammy and the hard Optus Stadium surface might see him miss
