Why is Watts missing? Injured? Ditto Frost.
Watts I'd imagine is structure. Hogan, Weideman and both Gawn and Spencer playing, meaning one will probably spend time forward, so too many talls.

Frost out for Garland I suppose? Dogs with generally a smaller forward line ... If thats the case ... we're going for a win.

only maybe wagner is the only "defender" you have left

I like Joel Smith on a wing/high forward
I feel Vince and Hunt would switch, while Vince isn't as athletic he seems likely to suck Stringer into the contest.

Honestly though, as much as i don't like Wagner, i'd rather him play on jong rather than Vince. We'd get exposed far to much with Vince

true but who ever is playing on stringer needs to have a good workrate since he will be pushing really high this year. Same goes to Crameri.

Yes, teams will be allowed to have eight players on the bench with unlimited rotations.

So with 28 named, and a 26 man squad, two to be omitted at some stage. Trengove and Garland. But its JLT round 1 so I'm not going to melt if that's not how it plays out.
I really hope Trengove plays ... need to see if he's still got it in the JLT, rather than find it out in the season proper when there is something on the line.

Some interesting History, The last time Melbourne played at the Western Oval was back in 1996, and Footscray wasn't the opponent. Not only was the it our last clash at the venue, but it was also the last time we'd play Fitzroy as an opponent

Also Jordan Lewis's first opposition in demon colours is the same as his last at Hawthorn.
