I haven’t seen enough from Boyd to convince me he’s an asset. Hope he shows us that he is tomorrow.

On a positive note. I see our match is broadcast on Arabic radio.

Keeping together is progress.
Working together is success.

He's in the 21: Plowman is out ill. Setters has been added to the emergencies.

Like many, I've been disappointed with what Boyd has shown, until very recently. His last game in the VFL was a ripper. He has something going for him that is trumps in anyone's book, a terrific attitude and work ethic. Although he's delivered some howlers on field, he's also shown some encouraging glimpses. Owing to so many injuries, in some respects, he's been thrown in the deep end and not had the opportunity to develop confidence in the Magoos. Let's give the kid a chance.
Fans do not appreciate the step up it takes from VFL to AFL, the fans carry on about how much tougher and harder AFL is, but it isn't really. If you replaced all 750 odd AFL players with the next 750 down you would barely notice a difference in play after a week or two of coaching.

The big difference, and this is the thing fans do not get, is the crowd.

There is no talking to team-mates, directing traffic, calling for the footy, etc., etc., as in 95% of cases nobody can hear shizen out on The G or on Docklands. It takes lots of games for players to get acclimatised to playing footy with what is effectively their head in a bucket. It's weird, all the noise in the world, and not a thing you can hear from any more than an arms length away or so!

Some players just fit right into it, I presume they are types who don't listen to team-mates anyway, others take a while!

Cotrell looks like the medical sub. Dow, Motlop and Setterfield all in the VFL starting lineup.

Chance to go top 4 with a win and the Saints lose.

And you are 'pro-boyd' based on VFL form and then write this?

His weapon IS his kicking....and he has been extremely average by foot in the AFL, thus his '1 thing' is a thing no more. Thus, not worthy of an extended run.

He panics too much under pressure (or perceived pressure) and the step up to AFL level is just too much for him.
We cut blokes like Gibbons for a bloke like Boyd.
limited strings, but steady output
vs
one string that has broken with barely any output at all.

Look at what Dow is producing in the 2's....and he can't get a gig.
Boyd can.
Now slightly different roles, but considering both would be coming in off the bench, its much of a muchness. Play the better player!

Boyd is playing on a wing
Dow would play in the guts.
Move walsh from the guts to the wing, so dow can play in the guts and overall the team is better with Dow in it vs Boyd....even if Boyd plays more of a position of need.

Dow tearing it up in the twos...again. He'll do well at Richmond next year.

Win this and we are in the top 4, 1 game up on the rest of the top 8 (albeit with poorer %).

Must win game.
Hopefully with a % boost along the way, but i'll take a 1 point win as long as its a win.
