I'd switch the top 2. Bombers board full of Watts jokes - all obviously hilarious.

Screw that. Watts - 6 goals :D
They won't have anyone that can go with Hogan IMO. He will eat them for breakfast if we can get a few one on one like we did Q4 vs the GWS

Haven't read the whole thread but I hope we don't drop Frost. I actually think he straightens us up a bit and provides another tall target to kick to. The more games he plays the better he'll get at moving to the right spots.

I'm in two minds on Frost this week. He does offer a bit, particularly when I rewatched the game, his pressure work is great, the bloke is just so quick.

But we have to drop a tall for the sake of our forward structure, and I'm not sure if his pressure acts are enough to make up for the fact he doesn't get too many touches, and is a pretty ordinary shot for goal.

Lumumba and Brayshaw in for Frost, OMac

Must be something up with Dunny.

Well the one thing I said I hoped wouldn't happen did happen, but I'm okay with it because I was more sentimental about Frost than anything. Excited to see Gus again; and let's hope H has a good one. I'd love to see him kick a couple.

Roosy pretty much confirmed in Roos speak that he wouldn't be picked this week.

It's becoming an intriguing one. I wouldn't like this to be the start of him being phased out of the side. O Mac isn't nearly ready to take up his mantle yet.

Gus back is a big plus. Will tear the bummers a new bumhole.

He clunks his marks i'll give him that.

Did we get rid of one tall too many?

Not really liking the idea of Lumumblehoodoovoodoo being back in the team.

Possibly, but it wasn't OMac making us look slow, it was Frost & Pedo & Watts & Hogan all forward.

I don't mind it. Hogan and Watts forward, TMac and Judy back, Pedo swing and Max ruck.

I did forget about Garland and then had a look at their forward line, not so much of a problem after looking and Pedo should be better back up in the ruck than McKernan/Daniher/Ambrose whichever one the Bombers go for.

Still don't like Lumumba being in, although perhaps he will surprise if we get the ball moving quickly.
