Lol he’s not playing you spud.

I saw that! Common sense prevails.

There’s still time though. Remember when got delisted? He’s the master of resurrection. He’s on that emergency list so he’s always a chance.

…. And Corr might still be the sub 😉

Absolutely love the selection table this year under our new coaches / staff.

Obviously they’re are a few questionable ins and outs but of course injuries etc

We seem to be giving a player like Hall and Tucker a decent chance or run but still have the guts to drop them when they aren’t performing at the AFL level. Need to be consistent.

Bergman was clumsy and had a bad game last week, and he’s been dropped already! Watch him go back and get even better.

Can we have Cooper as the sub?

Hall and Bergman had to come out. Both were poor. Sheez and/or Shiels might have to play defence
Curtis and Spicer lucky to stay in but Cooper, Hansen Jnr and Curtis Taylor didn't set the world on fire in the VFL.
Howe probably a bit too slow to do that role.

Reckon Shiels goes out to a wing, replaced by Greenwood as defensive mid. TT or Powell to replace Hall at HBF.
Backline will be corr, griff and McKay taking their 3 talls
Ziebell seagulling in defence
McDonald and Sheezel hbf

That’s the back 6.
Then agree one of TT or Powell rotate in short spurts back there as the 7th defender when one of the back 6 goes off

Wouldn’t mind Powell getting a run on Macrae as well now that he’s playing Half Forward, get to understand elite running patterns to find the footy. Macrae the sort of player Powell could become at the absolute peak.

Hasn't been perfect, but general approach seems a vast improvement on years gone by.

We need mids and runners against the Dogs, and they drop Bergman and Tucker??

Tucker I can swallow because he hasn't done much in recent weeks, but we need Bergman's dash. Sure he made some blues last week, but unless he's injured, he should be given a decent run of games to get some rhythm and consistency going.

Port selected their mid season draftee and he plays well.

Our bloke doesn't even have a head yet?

Against the tallest forward line in history. They are all needed.
It's really only JUH, Naughton and Lobb. Three tall defenders is enough, especially as two of those three forwards can move and will kill our lads agility wise

And we are playing three tall(ish) defenders. Ziebell is a walk up start playing his floating role as always

Essentially just 4 players off the best 22 (LDU, Xerri, Goater and 1 of Bergman/tucker/Perez) which we should rectify most of those immediately after the bye

LDU back after The bye for greenwood pls
Xerri for goldy
Perez for ziebell
Goodbye to the 3 30 plus year olds

Shiels can stay

Bergman or tucker in for spicer

Goater back in vfl after the bye then in for tucker/Bergman/Perez to give us our best team 2 weeks after the bye

It’s starting to all come together
