I’d be putting most of our currently unavailable senior players on ice this year (barring a farewell game in R18 for some). I’d also continue rotating our established senior players to give younger guys a crack.

Ins: Maginness, Koschitzke, Walker, Burgoyne
Outs: Worpel (injured), Morris (injured), Frawley (managed), Morrison (omitted)

Yes I don’t see much point in farewell games in front of an empty Queensland stadium (other than Burgoyne in final round).

OUT: Worpel (inj) Morrison (dropped) Frawley (manages)
IN: Maginness Impey Ross (give him 2 games)

Gives them some closure. Lets the family watch them out there one more time.

I'm sure depriving a young bloke a single game wont hinder their career but a farewell game might mean the world for some. Even without the fans there to thank them.

Pretty sure there’s been no mention of him hanging it up. He’ll get another year as a player mentor on the field. Plus his still pretty good.
Actually think he’s been super poor this year, round 1 he was good, then against Carlton and that’s about it. The mid season break didn’t do him any favors

he was good vs WCE and Port too from memory
4 games where he was alright out of ~12 isn’t a glowing endorsement. His Brisbane game was probably the only game where I’d consider him in the top 5 on the ground. The other good games probably not in the top 10. He’s never been a big possession winner with us, but 90% of touches were quality. Now he’s only averaging 10 disposals a game and I’d say at least half of them have been ineffectual.
