Anyone else been to the VFL website recently?
What a hot mess that is.

The fixtures, teams, new look competition details, in fact anything related to the 2021 season is nearly impossible to find.
Just over a week out and it's still setup for 2020.
It's embarassing.
I know right

I was trying to find some 2019 stuff the other day, was able to find info for matches but suddenly Geelong only had 1 player in our VFL squad that year

Hopefully it gets fixed soon

Reckon Holmes must have pulled up sore, because he definitely doesn't deserve to be omitted. Bit annoyed to also not see Dahl listed amongst the VFL squad either...guy has a golden ticket at the moment

Or he's being managed and not playing at all this week...

But if he is lining up against the Demons I'm thinking it's more likely due to lack of genuine replacement options at the moment - we're already been forced to make 2 changes, if Holmes isn't in a position to back it up this week that makes 3 changes

It's not like we have a vast array of options waiting in the wings - as others return, it'll start putting serious pressure on his spot in the side

Do we know if Zuthrie and Close are playing?
With Constable playing it’s almost certain to be Close, Menegola and Zuthrie in as the sub
Just reading through the Geelong VFL Twitter feed...

Fort, Narkle, Danger and Constable the starting mids group at the first bounce. So it looks like Charlie is omitted, with Fort and Narkle not earning a promotion.

Other prominent names in the feed include Jenkins and Kreuger, with Jarvis also rating a mention. So clearly they are not in the mix for tomorrow.

Haven't seen Zuthrie or Close come up at all. Could both be possible inclusions or emergencies.

Got belted in the second quarter and found ourselves down by two goals at half-time.

Yeah I’ve been following the vfl Twitter today
Pretty certain we know what the changes will be
And for the most part they're sensible changes

I would be keen to get a second tall/medium tall forward option into the side ahead of Cameron's return, but selections suggest the club doesn't believe they currently have the right options available
