Next 2 games we have no chance (Freo in Perth and Dees) but surely we win one in the stretch after that:
  • Pies at Marvel
  • Hawks in Launceston
  • * at Marvel
  • Saints at Marvel
  • Giants in Hobart
  • Lions at Marvel
  • Suns in Hobart
In which of those games do you realistically see a winning score being kicked from our side?

The tassie games represent our best opportunities.

Yes l did...and while Spicer might be well of whats wrong with having him as a sub to climatize him to the Afl level of football...same goes for Ford. We are in a transition period with not much chance of winning a lot of game anyway so as our vfl team is not showing much why not let him play...
Bringing in a player who hasn’t shown any semblance of a trait that would be effective in the top league is foolhardy. If he was a fringe top grader then yeah, why not but at least wait until he is close to ready. We don’t need more passengers

OUT: Hall (inj), Lazzaro (rest), Mahony (omit), Campbell (omit)

Walker is pretty lucky there's not another fit KPD on the list too imo.

If this wasn't in Perth I'd give us a chance.
Looks like Z would be back in. So maybe five changes with Phillips rested.

Hawks and Dons are our best shots imo. Three weeks is enough time for Pies to get players back, even though they'll have to battle to get over the top of us.

Suns game style causes real issues for us for some reason. Hobart helps.

The rest, their squads are too mature, they'll do us in.

Campbell is average but I think he it is a positive influence on the young blokes having him out there, drives effort.

#bigpicture
Exactly the changes I’d have, Xerri the only other possibility but will assume the club know best on his timing.
