    Can any of the training watchers give us an update on Hilly (the original). Proppy and strapped up for the end of the game, has he been TTHD, rehab group, walking or unsighted???

    Cheers

    Started training with a bandage above his knee, but then it came off. Looked fine to me.

    I am glad that ross has chosen tucker to replace balic. It would have been a backwards move by going back to d pearce or Sutcliffe at this stage.

    And hopefully darcy improves on the things which got him sent back to peel a couple weeks back. He looked good at the back end of last year. And being in a team with more confidence then 3 weeks ago should help.

    They were tall when they had Waite, Petrie, and Daw running around with Brown

    Hope both of teams have exciting game without any injury.

    but my prediction is Freo wins by 40+.
    I reckon north young players don't know how to manage to play in DS with their stamina. blow up on last quarter.

    have fan anyway.

    Anywhere. Any time.
    I think that despite not being named emergency he was actually closer to being picked in the best 22 (outside of a surprise late withdrawal) than D.Pearce. For his development though it's better for him to play for Peel than watch Freo from the stands. If we'd had a home game where Peel played after Freo I think the emergency would've been different. I'd prefer the gameday emergency in most scenarios to be one of our older guys tbh as I'd rather have our youngsters outside the best 22 playing for Peel than not at all.

    I think this goes both ways as North don't have a stand out second option either now that Preuss is not playing. There best option would probably be Ben Brown and even that is a bit of a risk with his injury record.

    As long as Nathan Thompson (Edit- Scott Thompson) stays out of there I'll be happy. He is a human wrecking ball that willfully and knowingly creates as much havoc as he can by falling into/onto opposition players and has done for a while.

    One of those hard men in defense you wouldn't expect to leave a note if he dinged your car.

    I sure am. I had Hawthorn players traded out on my mind after visiting the Whitfield thread.

    At 193cm, with no leap to speak of, and 3 career hitouts i'd be very surprised if he rucked.

    Total spud now too. They should just bite the bullet and drop him for Durdin permanently.

    Drop him this week.

    He's playing back pocket with a torn hammy... won't kick, handball or tackle.

    This is a job for Kersten / Mccarthy, both have sharpened their knees.

    Scott Thompson's actually one of a very few players I actively dislike. Watching him sometimes you just get the impression he really likes to hurt people, rather than causing hurt as a by-product of the game. I'm surprised he hasn't caused more damage than he has, over the years.
    Not my cup of tea really.
