I suspect it is not physical DAG.

You'd reckon Hunt is an out so maybe Gus or Stretch or ANB there.

Hogan if available in. I'd see Weed back out. He's improving but still has a way to go

A nice strong message to those at Casey.  Lets see who belts the door down for selection.  It would be great if each week there are 26 guys that all deserve to be in the firsts, and we select teams from a place of strength, instead of shuffling deck chairs and trying to remove 'weakness' from our game.  After the performance in Adelaide, we may be starting to change to a strengths-based selection model (not including the ruck, of course...)

Personally, the only player that couldn't get into the game consistently last night was Hannan.

Out: Hannan

In: Hogan if fit, or Stretch, ANB

If Hunt is fine unless Hogan is right I suggest it will be no change. Hannan for Stretch is the only one I could consider (with Bugg playing Hannan's half forward role).

Hunt is buying chocolate milk as we speak. Hopefully that means he's right next week. 

Only change is if Hogan is fit I think Weids goes back to the VFL to continue his development. He was good last night but he's not ready for AFL.

Should we be worried that you know this Jaded?

Hogan in for Weed makes sense as outstanding as his tackling was.

Only other change you can really see happening is if Hunt is out for a week recovering from concussion, and then it will be determined in terms of who is fit and firing at Casey today as to who comes in.

I personally have an expectation that he'll get a week's rest.

Would send Bernie straight to Ziebell next week.

Out: Hannan, Weideman (liked his tackling, brought effort. Stiff to be dropped)

In: Stretch, Hogan.

Hannan didn't get a lot of it, but he chased and harassed brilliantly, in particularly in the second half. If Hogan's fit (or ready) then if be happy to swap, but both Hannan and weid put great pressure on without kicking goals, which I think will be a great step in their team play development

We probably need to talk about Wagner. I can't comment on his defensive efforts off the ball, but his disposal really hasn't been up to scratch since his return. Which I find odd, because I thought it was one of his stronger points last season. I would be happy to persist, as I think he has a future, but with Melksham waiting in the wings I can foresee an unforced change.

Hannan was instrumental at ground level in the Clarry miracle goal, but I think he'll make way if Hogan plays.  I'd like to persist with Weid.  No change to the forward line if Hogan isn't good to go.

Stretch in for Hunt if he doesn't come up.

Hannan was vital in keeping that forward pressure especially in the second half, I really like how well he competes in the air, launches are every marking contest with purpose. He created a lot of opportunities and explosive around stoppages at times. His team low 8 possessions were very important.

I very much doubt he is dropped this week.

Who for Hogan, if he's available then?

Melksham is his competition, but I can't see it happening this week.  Melksham was poor prior to being dropped and then got rubbed out in the VFL, so he's not playing footy at the moment.  Suspect he'll need to play at least one strong VFL game before he becomes in to consideration.  

Besides, I thought Wagner was pretty good.  He's not the cleanest of ball users, but I wouldn't describe him as poor, and he attacks very hard.  I'd prefer him to Melksham at this point.

Only listened on SEN but kept hearing about Wagner's dashes forward. 

After Hunt's demise so no confusion.

Weed. Yes his tackling and pressure were first class. And as Goody noted he was important from a structural perspective. But whilst he flys well for marks which creates opportunities for small forwards (and Pederson)  he simply does not mark the ball enough. He'll get there though. He has the class.

Instagram is a magical place! 

I think I'm too old to be a groupie these days. Hunt is like borderline illegal!  🤔

Really liked Weeds competitiveness around the ground. Thought he played a very important role especially leading up the ground where we were really lacking last week.

I actually think they will look to keep Weed in even if Hogan comes back. North are a tall, great marking side. Can see us needing the extra tall options to free up Watts to move up the ground more.

Forgot about Melksham's holiday.

Not so much for my SC team. Had to bring him off the bench for Hogan.
