If he's fine to play for Casey and isn't injured I don't think that's a reason for him not to come in over garland

He got no treatment post game for it and made no complaints.
You don't pick someone who hasn't been bashing the door down and didn't finish the game the previous week, that's a reason for him not to come in.

I didn't say he wasn't playing this week, I was responding to replacing Garland with Frost in that post.

From Plapp himself.
Injured himself is an odd way to put it. I get images of him punching himself in the nose before wrapping his arms around himself and leaping to spear his own head into the ground.

Only difference between him and O Mac is o Mac finished the game
Well that and I'd say frost has performed better at top level this year

Bit worried about the ruck. Gawn spent plenty of centre bounces off the ground last week. They have Stef (sad face) and two other players who can play ruck. We have um, no one to help Gawn. I don't think this midfield battle is going to be as easy as everyone thinks.

And why is Dunn not playing? Anyone got any inside info? Clearly not doing something the coaches are looking for that I can't see

I actually wouldn't be shocked if Watts did take a few bounces. Just needs to jump and make a contest, then gets a bit of midfield time. Around the ground, Tyson and a few others mostly going 3rd man up

Watching Watts in the ruck would be truly awful. Jack would be doing everything possible to avoid body contact while his opponent would be desperately trying to cave him in. No way this is going to happen unless Roosy hates him.

I'd imagine OMac may do some ruckwork. Watts in the ruck would reek of match fixing

We win 160-50 and we are in the 8.

Why did the Crows have to play Gold Coast? Really making getting into the 8 at the end of the round a pain in the ass recently.

Kinda because when I look at the Lions they don't appear as s**t as the ladder indicates.
Their roster as a whole, no, they've got some very good players, but what is playing today, not worried about them as much as I'm worried about us, although I'm choosing to believe the over confident lack of effort is a thing of the past after the Essendon wake up call
