I reckon he is. Ross clearly sounded off early this week and confirmed today he'd been unwell. Something getting around a few in the group it seems.Is Cerra really ill? Obviously sore and or being managed. He back in Perth? Must’ve spent a bit of time in Melbourne
He'll most likely fill Cerra's current role on the Half Forward line with occasional stints in the middle.I really, really hope S.Hill is actually ready and we aren't rushing him back. Darcy back in is nice and I hope Logue gets an extended run at it. I've always seen him as more of a KPD than a 3rd defender so he's probably set up for it well.
I was surprised with Ports changes too, but I guess they are looking at the big picture, plus the weather will be poor on Saturday - it could destroy their season if a few reinjured in that game..We’re saved by Hinkley’s stubbornness and non desperation in that he leaves Dixon and Wines in Adelaide.
Liking our chances. Logue on Howard. Hamling gets Ryder/Lycett.
Dumb coach Hinkley.
Lol, far from it.Are Port considered quick starters?
Please dial down the paranoia! It's flu season so there is every chance he has it. Far more likely that he has caught a lurgy than any other slightly paranoid expecatation.Is Cerra really ill? Obviously sore and or being managed. He back in Perth? Must’ve spent a bit of time in Melbourne
Agree. The one thing working for us this year is that Port are also off the bye.Just hope we improve on our post bye form of the last two years where we’ve been diabolical.
I suppose the difference is , if they are copping it too hard, or have a little niggle or some doubts as to how they feel they can have a rest or put the cue in the rack so to speak , without the high stakes or the scrutinyWhat the heck does "easing back in through the wafl" even mean? Like because it's less rough? BS. They hit bloody hard in the state leagues. They almost target injured AFL players... Subiaco were sure as hell going for Harley last weekend in that second half.
IF he plays at all, it should be at Optus stadium this weekend. Stephen Hill could walk onto the field and outclass 40 other blokes and I'd rather it be against Port than bloody South Freo.
No difference whether he's playing for WAFL of AFL if you're implying he won't be able to run after his grandchildren if he plays AFLOn Harley, at no stage has Fremantle ever given an indication that they would be anything but conservative.
The fans and the media have requested on multiple occasions that they need to roll the dice - but the club has never demonstrated they would enforce this.
Maybe in the interests of player welfare, it's better for Harley to have the opportunity to run after his grandchildren in 30 years from now then it is to roll the dice in saving his AFL career. Just a thought.
