Clarke dropped? ☹
It's a possibility. I think he should stay in but if Daniher, Hooker and McKenna all come in you either:

1. Drop one of Gleeson, Redman or Guelfi from defence and play him back, all of whom had great games on the weekend
2. Drop a midfielder and push either Guelfi onto a wing if he plays back or push Snelling more permanently onto a wing if he plays forward
3. Drop a forward and play him forward.

Our midfield was quite comfortably our weakest area against Richmond, so option 2 seems like the most likely IMO

Hawthorn gain Gunston, but lose Burgoyne, Stratton and Impey.

We really should be beating them comfortably. They'll have a weakened team.

My only question is who goes in the ruck when Phillips has a rest?
Has to be Stewart or maybe follow Richmond’s lead and use Langford (we have previously). Use Joey and I’ll all but assume he’s gone seasons end cause no surer way to end his career than getting him to play ruck with zero preparation.
