Changes for next week v Geelong

Recommended Posts

Frost needs to be back in this team, preferably at the expense of Oscar "Turning Circle of Matthew Bate" McDonald but that seems unlikely.

Who kicked goals on Oscar today? How many goals was he directly responsible for with turnovers?

If Lewis out, Vince in. 

If Hogan out, Spencer in.

 

If Lewis not out, Vince then in for Brayshaw or ANB.

It's not about that, Frost is just a better footballer. I like having better players in the team.

No reason they can't be int he same team, I just would prefer only T. McDonald and Frost, especially against Geelong who don't have many tall forwards.

Depends on suspensions.

If none then Vince, Kent and Frost in for Brayshaw, ANB and Melksham.

Melksham was good imo. ANB, Hannan and Gus were quiet today. Harmes came into the game as it went on and was a big reason we ran over them in the last.

Oscar Mac : most 1 % ( but then he could take 14 contested marks, kick 6 goals and have 25 bounces and xome p[eople would criticise him if he missed a set shot from 80 m out

Angus : Opportunity did not come as much as last week

Melksham for Vince only because Vince is an auto.

Yeah I think Harmes can play the floating rebounder / zone defender role as well as Melksham but offered more zip and greater tackling pressure.

Hannan holds his spot due to repeat half forward effort and aerial ability, plus has a bit of toe about him too.

All changes will be dependent upon Hogan and Lewis MRP - I'm half expecting they'll get a week each.

Melksham hits targets. Will play all year if his form is as per the first two rounds.

Agree. Harmes doesn't have the ceiling of Melksham but overall he provides more grunt and spirit. Neither are great back flankers but give me the one who tackle and win the pill over the one who floats around.

Hannan's not going anywhere. Bit of a dirty day 2nd up but hardly a surprise the half forward's struggled on a day when the backs and mids moved the ball around in circles all day. Credit to the way Hannan, Braysh and ANB at least stopped Docherty and Simpson carving us up on the rebound. Hannan's first game was top shelf, if you didn't rate it as a very good game then you've got rocks in your head. A quiet effort in his 2nd game isn't a reason to drop him, especially given when the game was on the line he went out and did something about it, very good last quarter.

Brayshaw needs some time at Casey.

Oscar has had no goals kicked on him for 2 weeks in a row. He's going well- we would be stuffed without Tom.

Well Vince has to come in. Still think we need a back up ruckman instead of sending Watts in there. But I'm not confident with Spencer. 

So next week 2 teams play at a ground that is neither there home ground.

The combination of Lewis, Brayshaw and Salem gave us far better balance and quality around the stoppages than Dom - holding the ball/turnover Tyson. Don't get fooled by his stats. He blasted to no one repeatedly, is slow to defend at the stoppages and his field kicking is disgusting. He had a big last quarter but he needed to because he'd cost us about 5 goals by that time.

Nope. The team balance is better without him especially on the quick Etihad deck and his kicking was horrendous.

5 clangers to Harmes' 1. 

0 contested possessions, 1 tackle. We can do far better than him. He's bruise free.
