If Jack plays I want to see him start his move towards a midfield role. I don't think we need him in defence.

Agree...., although I think Jack might find the Dees mids a handful...be interesting to stick him on Lewis who isnt quick and see
if Jack can handle him because you know Lewis is going to get nasty if it aint going his way...

Maybe Viney returning will change the Dees game plan, but most of the comments posted assume Hogan is forward and that has not been the case this season. If Hogan camps inside F50 that will be the first time this season it has happened, even when he has been forward he has been more CHF than FF.

Harmes has been playing as a small leading FF in behind Hogan, a game plan very similar to the way Wet Toast use LeCras in behind Kennedy.

Of course McDonald has returned as well, so added to Viney the team balance has changed for the Dees. But Hogan up the field is working so well I doubt they would change it, Hogan's having his best season ever by some margin and it's not about playing F50!

IN: Marc Murphy, Pat Kerr, Jacob Weitering, Matt Shaw, Jack Silvagni
OUT:Ed Curnow (Suspension)

NEW: Pat Kerr, Matt Shaw

I don't like that Kreuzer has no back-up against one of the best rucks going around. We were well beaten in the taps last week, even though Kreuzer put in a great effort in getting clearances and such. That really needed addressing and we haven't.



Tapouts i'm not interested in. We won the clearances and he was brilliant around the ground. Gawn has won the tapout counts easily at times but for Melbourne to be thrashed in the clearances. Gawn's strength is around the ground too. GWS lost the tapout count 47-4 against Brisbane but won the clearances by 20.

Got much more important things to address.

Yes tapouts are a rubbish stat if they are not clearly to advantage and most are not. Jacobs is a great example of this, he can rack up 40 or 50 taps and barely have a noticeable effect, but have him take a dozen marks around the ground and he is a match winner.

Kreuizer can ruck solo provided nothing happens to Cripps, and we do have Jones who most of us would like to see get an AFL run in the ruck, not just a minute or two at the end of games.

Weird. Does he know what "maim" means? Inappropriate comment, nobody wants anybody permanently damaged in the game

An absolute dumbass statement but par for that particular course.

I guess as far as team selection is concerned, one forced change is fair enough imo.

It means that in a week where Flogland has paraded in front of us the best it has to offer, we finally have a winner, someone who is unlikely to be surpassed for years.

I assume this is from his "sliding doors" article?  All that does is use up space and ink - it serves no other purpose.  I would assume these articles are meant to be humorous.

Ignore, disregard, rip it up (covers most of the "journalism" these days)

Yes it is from Sliding Doors. A stupid concept if ever there was one.

If that's humour, well........................
