Im assuming both are back in and then its just a question of who is out. All of Matho/Dev/Madden/Coleman/Ah Chee would be hard done by to drop out. Would hate it but I would probably go Matho and Coleman.

I would like him to come through the seconds. Give him a couple of games to earn his spot in the seniors. No gifting games anymore.

Is there a level below the VFL team? I really feel Lachie should have to earn his spot in the seconds

Hope not. I think Matho is the perfect finals type player, and this is a finals type game. He brings aggression to the club and gives us an edge that not many other players bring. Would be a real shame to lose him on Friday night

His problem is that he brings average to below average skills and below average running ability to the side as well.

Matho is ideal for games like this and the one V Tigers where his aggression is an asset.

like others believe
Neal and Lester are the ins

Would appear Madden and Matho out. Shame really with club going well in the absence of Neal, might have been more beneficial with missing this game and then the extra weeks break with the bye, but Neal and club would know best and he is the BM so if 100% fit should play.

Disagree. With the bye next week, Lachie's return for this game is ideal and then gives him an additional week off to recover. He is our best player and if selected he is 100% fit to play by the medical staff.

Valleys. Chelsea.
The boys will stir Lachie up at training next week if he comes back in and they lose(all in good fun of course), IIRC in 2019 Harris was out for 4-5 games and we won all those games and he came back in and we lost.

I can’t remember any player ever really getting into Petracca or Oliver’s face and I reckon Matho could do that, and I would like to see it, put them off their game type of thing, however it’s his disposal that always worries me, I’m always clenching my jaw when he gets the ball hoping he’ll hit a target.

I thought madden would have been a good option to play on Pickett and free up starcevich … but I back the coaching staff. I feel for both. Hopefully both can play more senior footy without injury to others. Especially after seeing the matho interview on afl.com.au
