I'd like to see

OUT - Blakey, Gray, L. Taylor, Bell

IN - McLean, Wicks, Foot, Brand (if fit - or Maibaum)

Throw Wicks in midfield, see what he can do.

I didn't mind L Taylor...think he might hold his spot. Do we know exactly who is in Brisbane, is it the whole squad? I think we see Wicks this week as well. Would love to see Sinclair get a rest (not sure his contract status but feel like this is his last year ) and try Amartey. Its basically now or never for him surely. Otherwise I think Aliir might be best served as ruck and resting forward. His defensive play not up to usual standard right now for mine. That brings Gould or Maibaum to the selection table. Dawson is the other one for me who seems really lost at the moment. Dosent seem to have a role and doesn't seem to be able to create one on the go. He has been in no mans land a number of times this year. Maybe with his kick we need to play him across half-forward or a high half forward and deliver the ball inside fifty or go for goal, he at least has options there.

We could have done with a midseason draft this year.

I really am not too bothered as long as we keep rotating players through. We need to find players who can sustain the new methods. Like for like probably goes out the window a little bit.

OUT - Blakey, Gray, Sinclair
IN - Amartey, Wicks, Brand (assuming fit)

Agree on all fronts.

I wouldn't even mind Amartey & McLean coming in as two young rucks to share rucking duties. Sinclair is no good.

Needs to play. Learn the nuances of forward play. Won't learn that twidling his thumb being dropped.
Reckon he needs a rest in order to help him, putting him out there at the moment is not teaching him anything, other than maybe have him thinking he is not up to the level.

He at least had chances on Saturday, another week he kicks those and all of a sudden it's a good day. We don't have an alternative that would be better.
