I know Neale is all class but I feel that perhaps it could be a mistake to play an undone Neale over Mathieson who really delivered against the tigers

Very sad for matho deserved his spot , he gives us that edge , Neale is a great player , would I rest him before the bye ? Mmmm maybe

I think Madden's a bit green but has performed admirably and stiff to miss out to Froggy who is in for structural reasons. Plus they love Froggy.

Personally I wouldn't have made this change but there really isn't much in it either way . I still think we've looked better with that extra dash out of the backline.

Lol. For real?

We're dropping a three game rookie due to popularity bias and structural reasons?

Lester is probably the right guy for now plenty of experience and a rock down back. Madden will certainly be best 22 though eventually

Hope not he seems to have come on a bit with a few games in the seniors. Gives us an aggressive edge as others have said and could take over Robbos role in a couple of years
I must have missed where Matho has developed any sort of running ability to play a wing position.

If Mathieson is still playing regularly in a couple years time then I’d have concerns for our team.

At best he is a depth inside midfielder and comes in due to injury here and there

Dees play 3 talls above 195cm so we basically had to bring in Froggy. Plus he is clear best 22.

If Jimmy had played maybe 10 more games I might say we should drop Ah Chee isntead, but hard to do so when he's played 3. Rate his development and he will get his chance in the future.
