If JDG is not 100%, leave him out and give him a chance to recover. We should have enough depth forward - Stevo, Reid, WHE, JT, Mihocek, Varcoe (if selected) and even Brown to cover and the midfield should be strengthened by Beams returning. I know he will be a big out, but it is a long season and we need him cherry ripe around the end of the season. Let's not take any chances.
Give some other players the opportunity to stake a claim and/or get some game time into them. Players like Wills, IQ, Sier, Crock (??)
