    I don't like the idea of Patton in the ruck with his knees but he certainly has more experience in there than Tommo.

    Id rather stick with the structure we have. If Lobb is out then maybe Dawson needs to play or somebody else comes in to play Lobb's role. Not a fan of messing with something that is working and Tommo to defence has been a huge win so far. We were very lucky last year with injuries, looks like its run out.

    I find the notion the club would make Clinical decisions on a players behalf disturbing. If you mean the Club medical staff in consultation with the player then I'm fine with it though.
    I think the club made an error in the way Treloar's surgery while still on the list was handled. He had an obligation to inform but any notion of requiring permission to seek medical treatment is wrong.
    The players undoubtedly receive the best of medical care, far better than the rest of us, and that's appropriate when they take great risks of injury, and permanent damage to their body. Every clubs states publicly player welfare is the priority, stll got to be careful to walk the walk.

    You know what im interested to see.

    If they are going to open up the top level of all stands for the rain, even though the crowd will be bad, im thinking it will look heaps better on TV. Instead of the cameras facing the one stand that is never open. Making it look like no one is there

    Forecast for the rest of Saturday
    Summary
    [​IMG]
    Max 21
    Rain clearing in the morning.
    Chance of any rain: 70% [​IMG]
    Sydney area
    Cloudy. High (70%) chance of rain at times in the morning. Winds northerly 15 to 20 km/h becoming light in the morning then becoming northerly 15 to 20 km/h in the evening.

    Surf conditions in the morning may be more powerful than they appear and are expected to be hazardous for coastal activities such as rock fishing and swimming.


    It gets better, I'm close and it hasn't rained since dawn.

    :eek: I sincerely hope none of our guys are rock fishing or surfing though.

    I'm hoping that they're all tucked up in cotton wool right at the moment. Tough when it comes to warm up & game time though, probably need to let 'em out!

    So, it looks like it might be fine weather for the game, but how much rain has Sydney had - how sodden is the ground going to be? The rain will reduce GWS normal advantage from its running ability and delivery to the talls, increasing fumbles and bring Richmond right back into the game.

    Pathetic joke
    Everywhere I look there's half a dozen Richmond players and only one of ours

    Just a horrible horrible effort.

    Actually it's not horrible - in order for an effort to be horrible, first you must have an effort.

    All too much for us I think. Boys feeling the pressure and losing poise early. We could be eight goals down. Know it is early, but we just have to limit the damage here.
