Might see both Menzel and Buddy in the side next week. That is quite a nice addition to our forward line.
I doubt Menzel will play next week. He's been out for too long and has had repeated set-backs, they'll give him another week at 2's level to fully prepare I suspect.

Actually just checked and we have a NEAFL bye next week, so might be a few more weeks yet.

I think it mostly depends on game time. If he can get through most of the NEAFL match then I don't see the harm in playing him in the AFL as he is no more likely to get injured in the AFL than he is in the NEAFL. It is all down to fitness and how sore he is. If he is too sore after today then I agree with you completely.

Not sure what to make of Zac Foot so far. He's done okay but done nothing too impressive across the first 6 rounds.
What do you make of Sam Wicks and Joel Amartey?

Every time I watch them I like their play a lot but do you think they both can legitimately play seniors footy?

I think Wicks has a better chance of playing seniors. They can find a role for him as a pressure small forward with his workrate and tackling skills. Amartey has always looked impressive with his athleticism but I still have questions about his footy nous e.g. leading to the right spots

Not sure we can play Menzel without dropping one of Reid, McCartin or Blakey, especially if Buddy is also playing. Blakey can play a bit of wing I suppose but the other 4 can't play midfield and that will reduce our rotations.
Reid went off in the dying minutes yesterday due to injury. There is a good chance he won't be playing next week.
