A few comments on the conditions in Cairns. Having played at Cazalys the surface is immaculate but hard under foot. The usual scoring end is to the right of your screen. ( I won the toss and went against the wind and we were down by 7 goals at qtr time great captaincy) It has been fine and clear with low humidity The last 2 days. Hopefully stays like that
a friends brother who plays there regularly says the winds a problem in the late afternoon/evening.

Ha, now I can find out whether you captain Melbourne or Fremantle by seeing who won the toss!

Modern medicine.

You could have your leg amputated and the nurses would drag you out of bed the next day and make you hop around on one leg
True. I had a left medial knee replacement in February. The physio came to see me day one and two days later it was “Up you get Mr. KZ! Here’s your crutches, time for a walk.”

Gee you're a sook 3KZ, you should have walked out of the operating theatre and went for a 3km run.

Not entirely sure what we will do here!
Birch for Starc (wouldn’t be surprised if Hinge got a run though)
CEY for Bez. Just due to the fact he can be handy up forward like Berry.
Linc is a tricky one though. Do we go Tom Berry or give dev a run!
I’m very interested to see what we do!

Whoever they bring in now, this close to finals, has to be about winning now and not development for future.

whoever it is has to be a possibility of playing during the finals, so if you wouldn’t debut someone in a finals game, don’t bring them in this week.Bring unknown qualities preferably already experienced at Afl intensity.

Yep, my "let's debut more" is along these lines as well. Until 3 weeks ago we did not know how Fullarton would've gone this year, we learnt something. 2 games ago same with Keidean. Last game Payne looked alright and holding his own. We are changing our mix with team members who are actually adding more to the overall first 22 rather than be too rigid and stick to the same preferred playing list.

This in my view is the key to beating Richmond or Geelong, along with taking our chances and kicking goals.

Some interesting emergencies

Would've preferred an extra mid but we've stacked the backline with some good kicks

Yes interesting.. 3 of the 4 OOC
You say Eagles in as backup in case a tall goes down.
I was hoping one of the younger guys got a chance.. Although no NEAFL on youtube have no idea how any going

Yes is that the first time Christensen has made the emergencies list for a long time.
At least he must be playing/training well so nice backup in case we get some other issues
Can play multiple roles

McCarthy replaced by Hinge essentially so Ah Chee to play forward most likely.

Would've liked to see Robertson (or Smith) come in, but I guess CEY has the best shot at having the biggest impact for us in the short term (i.e. this season) so it makes sense.
