Really disappointed with the forced outs. My biggest concern is that our often questionable delivery into our F50 is probably not going to get any better, nor is our contested possession. We have to be mindful of this if our forward line struggles. Bringing in Gunners & Jeka for Jaeger & Chad is a bit like robbing Peter to pay Paul. Midfield depth is shot.

Gunners will play wing, so essentially a mid.

One would assume we are going to run a fair few guys through the midfield and one no one has mentioned yet is CJ. Would mind seeing him have a 5 or so minute burst to see how he goes.
I am salivating at the picture of CJ bolting out of the centre circle and snapping it full tilt , laces out to Kozi, Lewis, Jeka, Moore, Gunston and Bruest ! Instant six goals .

I hope Downie starts carving them up in the VFL, I can’t wait to see his raking left foot in action for the seniors.
Almost certain that both Gunston and O'Brien don't play forward, or don't play exclusively forward given our outs.

yes sounds right and I wouldn’t discount Hartley playing either.

This.

At the time of sharing it’s what I’ve been told. It may change between when I’m told and when the official team is announced.

I recall there was a time last season where Gunston was initially in but then didn’t quite come up so I let you guys know that he was out too prior to the official team announcements.

Couldn’t care less about the 1/100 dropkicks that post on here and discredit my info. Really like this board tbh, a lot better than almost all the other clubs.
I knew your info was fine when you named Jeka. The decision was made on Saturday last week.

Appreciate you sticking your neck out and offering what you know. We used to have a lot more ITKs in these parts but many don’t post as much after getting PM’d abuse every off season when a trade or FA doesn’t eventuate.

Agree. Managing both players for this game makes no sense. Maybe one. Better planning required. Saints are vulnerable and this is a winnable game.

Given Clarko has generally done every thing not to tank or play the kids over the past few years reckon the best explanation is simply chad and JOM are sore and don’t want to risk them on a hard deck with their injury histories.
Well said. Completely disagree with any talk of us ‘tanking’ and just not the way Clarko operates. The two big outs either really need the week, or Hawks medico’s hiding some bigger injury news, we have all been frustrated with lack of transparency in the weekly medical video before..

That being said, we are seeing Finn get a proper crack and Jeka debut! Hawks in a close one for mine!!

Isn’t Nash an emergency? I doubt he plays given how tall the lineup already is.
I really wish Nash well and he is obviously a very handy VFL player but I think he is the very definition of “Emergency”

It means they were probably both bruised and sore AF, with a 6 day turnaround, and playing on the hard Marvel surface. It would not have been planned for both of them to need their bodies managed at the same time.
