Zurhaar in if fit
Further to above Apparently noble now mentioned Zurhaar should be back next week

Comben is the other who could come in after his 3 game in a row, the tigers defence still missing balta and broad so could get a nice matchup

Bonar has also played 3 games in a row now so should be in contention too

Bonar looked above the level today, would like to see him get a call up.

Happy for Comben to keep building with VFL games towards next year.

Pretty sure we've got Richmond covered, as weird as that may sound. I suspect they've thrown the towel in for 2021.

Hopefully the knock LDU copped to his knee is nothing, as I thought he probably laboured a little after that once he came back on.

TT and Zurhaar back will help, but I'm not too fazed if they sit out another week.

Mate . You do don’t know what your talking about . I’m sorry.

He has been good this year and his toughness and experience is needed down back at the moment.

I wouldn’t be hanging my hat on the formula used claiming he is elite.

Half his possessions are from kick out. He has cost us many goals from poor kicks or bad decisions this year.

So overall he has had a good year but nothing spectacular.

Player rankings has Nic Nat as the number one player in the AFL at the moment, and I’m fairly certain only Eagles supporters would agree with that.

Is Thomas even clear for this game?

Fairly certain it’s 14 days from the diagnosis, which was on the Monday?

Which would rule him out.

I think you’ve nailed the team 👍
Except for Kayne Turner. Up to this year I would’ve said yes “fair enough “ he should be out of the side .
But this year Noble has found an improvement & important role for him as a lock down small defender.
You must admit , he’s had a few very impressive scalps !👍
