In theory I like the changes, Stone is very risky but Bruhn and Hill are fairly safe. Wouldn't have picked Mummy to go around again hopefully he's a late out tommorow and they roll with Briggs

I’ve seen Bruhn play but can you tell me a bit about Stone? What position will he play?
Hey mate. He is a quality player, I just worry about him running out the game with the fitness and step up in intensity

May the sub I reckon

Hill has improved his defensive efforts enormously.
Playing a final in front of family and friends will hopefully add to his x-factor.

I predict Cumming will be a late out and Buntine in.

Peatling the sub.

God this team has the ability to rack up injuries...

It's the fittest team we could select, although Mumford ahead of Briggs is surprising.

XOH, Kennedy and Daniels would have been handy, but not to be. The important thing is the midfield is intact.

But I'm worried about JC and what he might do tomorrow night.

One of the few times in his tenure where you can see a clear plan ( spread and run on a big deck)to win and the 22 has been selected accordingly. The old Leon would have had Buntine, Riccardi and Davis jammed in instead oh hill, Bruhn and stone abs we would have had a terribly
unbalanced side.

If they want to play Jezza, hawk, sav in the one forward good luck to them. Our backs will counter attack from D50 all night. Taylor, Stein, Idun, Haynes and cumming are a good mix to cover the talls plus Rohan

Red hot chance

Geelong playing pretty tall in defence think out smalls are a real chance to have an impact

Really love the mix of small and mid sized forwards they've got in there especially with Geelong playing pretty tall in the backline we could give them some real problems with our smalls

Geelong tall at both ends .... we’ve got a nice mix in the forward line and an excellent defense .... and we should beat them in the guts ...., points yo a win in my eyes

Can anyone explain why Davis is not selected? I would have thought he is still best 22, especially with all the injuries.
Phil's body has really started to show signs of breaking down in the back half of the year, I think Port was his last full game and he looked off the pace then and when Stein came in to replace him he hasn't looked out of place at all and this backline has done a remarkable job considering the absured volume they've had to defend against. Stein also quite a good athlete that can really run with the mobile tall forwards that Phil can't anymore.

If Davis isn’t a late in this week (which I think is a chance he might be) the question has to be asked if he has pulled the pin on footy .... he was quite shaken by the concussion against port but he should be right by now

I would have thought he might be carrying something else. It's been a month since the concussion hasn't he? The rehab report suggested he got through the 12 day concussion protocol fine, but hasn't played since.
