What do we gain by Shiels, TOB and Burgoyne playing this weekend? Time for the new guard to see the season out.

DGB out hurts. Hopefully he's not injured.
He has actually battled a bit the past 2-3 weeks. Time for a breather.

DGB will have to do a huge amount of work on his fitness base in the summer if he needs to be rested on a 7 day break after only 5 games of league footy.

Very strong possibilty knowing Hawthorn.
his body is very slight for the role he's been playing, and more importantly, the way he's been playing. he plays like he's clinically insane

he's probably sore as fu**. it also gives us an opportunity to take a look at Morris off HB or something similar, (i think most are already at least 80% sure DGB will be in our best 18 come next year) so i think its fine

Can't wait until he's 22/23 and starts to really hurt some opposition forwards.

Feels like he could be a good candidate in future when forwards are asked 'who do you hate to play on the most?'

I really hope Morris is selected. His form in the VFL as a defender has been very impressive.
Agreed, really keen to see him tested at AFL level now. He's named on the extended bench so I will be watching the update with interest.

Collingwood play short up forward. Perfect week for one of our tall defenders to miss and certainly a good time to give DGB a spell.

Earlier this season a lot of us probably thought we wouldn't see him at all this season.

Now he can win the rising star next season too!

Hanrahan getting a shot and Morrison back in makes me happy. Same with Kosi.

Won't say anything about Ceglar being in for Reeves. Far out.

No Reeves WTFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF
The club can’t win.

Win the game and the “That shitty meaningless win has cost us a couple of spots in the draft order” brigade, are outraged.

Don’t win a game and the “We are sh*t” brigade, have a field day.

I do agree with you though, I have no idea why Ned is not playing.

But I do giggle at some that get outraged by someone not playing and then getting pissed off when we win and put our top 2 or 3 draft pick at risk.
