Changes vs Hawthorn

I know, I know. We've just won and should savour it longer but just like the team we need to look ahead.

Out: JKH, ANB

In: Trengove, Kennedy

All will depend on if Hogan wishes to play, but I'll go with him not playing.

Out: JKH, Bugg

In: Trengove, Weideman

I think Gorgoroth is correct in that I think Hogan will need another week, which is totally understandable.

To me we make just the one change:

In:  Kennedy

Out:  JKH

I know others will look at ANB as someone who needs to be dropped, but he deserves another game as his 5 prior to today have been excellent.  No doubt he went missing for large parts of the game but there is no need to make too many changes to a winning side.

We would be way too slow with Trengove in the team.  Would need to drop Tyson for balance , which isnt happening.

This is outrageous I thought Bugg did some fantastic work today and I reackon we are a better team with his no nonsenec approach in it 

Trengove , Look I dont care how many touches he gets and a very substandard VFL! The game has passed him by, he is too slow!

Two Changes

In Hogan, White

Out Neal Bullen, jkh 

Weeds needs to build some confidence for a week or two kicking a few goals at Casey. Another question , why call it Casey why not Cranbourne coz after all thats where it is!!?

And conversely, you couldn't care less how many touches Mitch White has in the 'sub-standard' VFL, he's your boy and you want him in.

I don't disagree PF but isn't White just as slow as Trenners? Can't remember much of him, just thought he was slow.

The only in I want to see is Kent. He brings a big leg, some pace and agro. Haven't seen the VFL report but hoping he went well.

Not sure who's out but I struggle with JKH so most likely him

ANB has not been excellent.

going at an average of mid 50% DE makes him a liability regardless of his other work.

JKH is the one obvious out for mine, possibly ANB. There may be more, there may not.

Jesse will need more than a week to be ready mentally.

As for Weideman, he needs to have a good month at Casey before being allowed back into the team. He needs to work on his agility and pressure, as he is a liability once the ball hits the deck. He needs to be banging down 2 doors worth, before he returns. He needs to get angry.

I may have misheard but I got the impression from Jack Watt's post match interview that Hogan would be back next week

If that's the case then he comes in for JKH, with Petracca to play higher.

All the other changes in this thread are just tinkering around the edges in my opinion.

Hasn't he?  Excellent may have been a strong choice of word, but his improvement and intensity around the contest have been very good all year.  There is no one worth replacing him with anyway.

I'd agree. JKH just seems "something" short of AFL standard.

Tyson is our 22nd best player at the minute considering he is still playing.

Another average game both by foot and in his inability to consistently impact throughout the game. 

We're carrying him atm.

i don't know if we're carrying him....

He just finished off today with 29 disposals, 9 marks and 9 inside 50's

I think Jones has been making some average passes as well as the rest of the team. I do agree his disposal needs some work as do many others on this team.

Like i said in a previous post his ability to run the outside and receive the ball from an inside mid (Viney/Oliver) and release it into fwd 50 is really valuable.

Not sure why Tyson is the current whipping boy as much as he is at the moment.

Yeah chook I think Stretch is the most obvious in. Probably just needed a rest today.

24 posts and not one person calling for Melksham to be dropped.  Its a miracle.
