Brady walks into Noble's office and plonks himself down on the chair opposite the coach. Under his arm wedged into left arm pit, is a piece of paper titled Team Lineup vs Carlton. With out uttering a word, his right hand wips the piece of paper from his left armpit and then slams it on the desk right in front of Nobel.

Nobel frozen for a few seconds after Rawlings' auspicious entrance peers down and picks up the paper. Rawlings tells him to read it out loud so they both had a common understanding of what is about to be read out with any questions dealt with if they arose.

Noble proceeds to read out the team

"Outs, Cunnington, Goldstein, Thomas, LDU, Larkey, Zurhaar, at this point Noble stopped reading and peered over the paper and looked at Rawlings. "Keep reading" was Rawlings response. "McKay and Anderson all out due to Covid" continued Noble. "Have they got Covid?" "no" was Rawlings' quick stoic reply.

At this point Noble thought it would be wise to actually not ask any questions as he stared at Rawlings picking his teeth with a Damascus Steel Hunting Knife.

Yep & look how Bard Scott treated him …. Paul Ahern ring a bell ? Or How about Ryan Bastinac perhaps?
Personal opinion but Ahern seemed like he didn't want it enough with his work effort. I was a fan of Basti but he really didn't set the world on fire in Brissy either.

Some players might be talented but just aren't desperate enough.

Hate to say it but these 2 players would have been stars at clubs like the swans , Hawks (at the time) etc ..
they have a track record of making average into gold

Interesting to see Nick Larkey has a Carlton doormat. Hopefully he'll wipe his feet on the real Carlton Football Club this weekend

Sure for the McKay twin match up which would have been fun.

But we're now missing McKay/Charlie Curnow/Casboult/McGovern and back ups O MCDonald and Pittonet (ruck but would release De Koning forward). Even Marchbank who is a defender but could go forward or release Jones or Weitering forward.

Crazy that we have 7 talls injured, including our best 4 tall forwards.
Oh you have injuries.

Aiden Corr, or is it Aidan, obviously walked near Brother Mckay. You know how contagious these toe things are. Carlton Dr just confirmed Harry out for 2 weeks. :cool:

Damn. Carlton supporting mate and I have been anticipating the 'McKay Showdown' for the past 5 years. Carlton is the biggest game on my Footy Calendar, and we still can't go the footy together.

Surely the AFL schedules it at the MCG for 2022 when we can finally go? We were supposed to play Carlton there last year

Yes, confidence is fickle but in this case Laz is a fringe best 22 player and not even if all the team was fit.

He’s a first year player who has shown all the traits that he’ll work hard to become regular best 22. For mine, it’s that simple.

If I had a pick a player where confidence is probably shot, I suspect Will Walker.

yes, cut him, i don't think he has adapted to the afl circuit hence he is constantly injured and out of form.

Don't even get me started on the MCG debacle. I was pumped last year when I saw we had like 4 games at the G. I believe we were supposed to play Carlton, *, Ninthmond and the Dawks. Of course the Lockdowns changed everything.
