Changes v Brisbane

Recommended Posts

Tyson or Brayshaw in for Maynard.

Wagner was good in the second half.

Garletts workrate was poor and playing Melksham permanently forward for 4qrts may be a better option, if they wish to pull trigger then Brayshaw comes in to play off HB and rotate through the middle.

Hunts decision making is woeful as is his disposal by hand and by foot. Menzals sitter he missed came from a lazy handball from Hunt to Maynard when we had free men down the line and streaming forward. Maynard was forced to track back and this allowed Geelong to get to the contest and eventually turn it over. When Hunt picked up the ball Clarrie was beside him and at the time I thought let the better user take the ball but he didn't

Tyson and Brayshaw must come in, unless we want to go with no midfield depth again and start the season 0-2.

A few are on thin ice, but no more than a couple of changes will be made.  I think Wagner survives but Maynard may get the chop.  I don't think they'll leave Tyson out for another week.

Brayshaw may get a look in as well for someone like Hannan.

Maynard, Lewis and Garlett all out.  One not up to it yet and the other two for not putting in the required effort. 

Tyson, Brayshaw and someone to come in.  It may be worth bringing Frost in so Lever can do his third tall routine rather than having to shut out a tall opponent.  Otherwise it may be Dion Time.

I would bring in Frost to allow Lever to play his intercept game (ala the crows).

In: Frost  Gus and Tyson 

Out: Wagner Maynard and Gartlett  (was poor today)

Brisbane’s only strength is it’s midfield and there are some very good players in there. Strengthen the midfield with Tyson and Brayshaw.  I was surprised on Thursday night when the team was announced and I’m still scratching my head.

IN: Tyson, Brayshaw

OUT: Maynard, Wagner

No VFL matches makes it hard for Spargo to get a gig (one practice game I think ?).

I think we could do worse than consider Bugg for someone ... perhaps Hannan

Brayshaw has to come in.

Frost is seeming to have his papers marked like Dunn and Garland before him.

Love him or loathe him, we are a better team with Buggy playing.

I was disappointed in the games of Garlett, Melksham and to a lesser extent ANB as well as Pedo after half time.   With no VFL this week it's hard to know who they will bring in if indeed they make any changes at all.

Frost has to play until Tom McDonald comes in. Lever is NOT a one on one defender.I said this on another post during the week. We basically took him away from his natural game. Awful selections. 

 

Tyson and Brayshaw for Maynard and Tyson for anyone , but probably Garlett. He could not have given and stuff about being out there today.

Wagner out. Brayshaw in to play HBF and rotate through midfield.
Maynard out. Tyson in to play midfield.

Frost to potentially come in to play FB, purely so Lever can play roaming CHB as third defender where he excels. Would then mean one of Hibberd or Hunt could push up the ground more. Not sure who would be dropped for Frost to bring that balance though.

Hannan and Garlett on a warning. If either have another down game next week then they are replaced by Bugg.

Will give Salem the benefit of the doubt after the big fall when he was tunnelled. 12 touches for a midfielder isn't good enough, so he needs to show some decent form next week.

Agree 100% with the ins and outs here. Wagner under no circumstances should play next week.

If we are going to play Lewis, get him out of the back half and push him forward of the ball.

At least his handballs to teammates under pressure won't be as dangerous there.

I'm at a complete loss with the changes. How are we going to play?

I'm going to presume we continue with man on man all over the field and not drop a 7th defender back for the full game like we did after half time. If that's the case Lewis has to play half back and play on an opponent. He can't play wing. It just doesn't work. ANB needs a chance to play wing and use his running power. So if Lewis goes back then Wagner comes out.

I'm going to give Lever the benefit of the doubt as a key defender for 1 more week. But only 1. Otherwise it's Frost time. But who comes out of that backline? Lewis? Vince? 

Harmes and Petracca need to split midfield/forward time. Much like Caddy and Martin. Then we need another midfielder to cover the spot created by Lewis and I'd go with Brayshaw over Tyson.

Not sure what to make of Maynard. Did a lot right. Limited Gaz's influence. His athleticism is a plus. Think I'd keep him.

Out: Wagner, Garlett
In: Brayshaw, Bugg

FB: Jetta  Oscar  Hibberd
HB: Lewis  Lever  Hunt
C:  ANB   Oliver   Jones
HF: Melksham  Hogan  Bugg
FF: Hannan  Pedersen  Fritsch
Foll: Gawn  Petracca  Salem
Int: Harmes Vince  Maynard  Brayshaw

His kicking was costly.

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt

    PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons have named a star studded line up in it’s final practice match before the season proper. They take on the emerging Brisbane Lions out at Casey which is the second of three matches at the ground on Saturday. Many of the Dees best 22 have been recalled including Vice Captains Max Gawn and Neville Jetta whilst Captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney will play restricted minutes in the VFL curtain raiser. Former Gold Coast co-captain Steven May will play his first official game for Melb

    HIT OUT by Paddy Gosch

    As far as preseason hit outs go, the Demons’ first JLT Community Series fixture against the Tigers in the blistering heat at Shepparton, was instructive of a number of things but not really conclusive as to how each team will fare in the regular season against the competition's big guns (which includes against each other). That’s the way these practice match hit outs go. Neither of the teams was at full strength, particularly Melbourne but if you were looking for the reason for the 12 point

    HOT OUT OF THE CITY by Paddy Gosch

    The Dees travel out of the city for game one of two JLT Community Series practice matches before the season proper. Our first match takes us to the floodplains of the Goldburn River in Northern Victoria to the city of Shepparton. We take on the Tigers for the first of at least 3 encounters with the 2017 Premiers this year. The game will be played in scorching temperatures so expect plenty of rotations, ice vests, fans running overtime and extra water carriers. The Demons are coming off a wi

    GAME, SET & SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    I always believe in starting off any report by accentuating the positive and in that regard, as at the time of writing, the Demons have not reported any injuries so that’s my major positive from today’s practice game v the Magpies (albeit that we know the club is somewhat lax in reporting these things so my best wishes go out if any of today’s participants are in intensive care at the Alfred).  Another positive was that Razor Ray performed his umpiring duties admirably which is more than I

    SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons are set to take on the old enemy Collingwood in a good old fashioned Scratch Match on Friday Morning. It is unknown what form the match will take, how many quarters there will be, their length, the amount of rotations or even whether they'll keep score. One thing we do know for sure is that both coaching staffs will be keeping their cards close to their chests to ensure neither will glean too much from their competition. The Dees will likely be without some of their stars as Tom

    IMAGINE by Whispering Jack

    The Demons made their official return to the training track for 2019 on a sunny Saturday morning at Goschs Paddock with most of the interest initially centred on a small patch of ground in one of the pockets where the rehab group was going through the paces. Some good pieces of news on that score. The  rehab group is considerably smaller than it was prior to the Christmas break with Christian Petracca (knee), James Harmes (shoulder), Jayden Hunt (shoulder), Neville Jetta (shoulder), Oscar M

    THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne atoned for the heartbreak of its frustrating finish to the 2017 season by, at long last, making the finals and then disposed of two highly credentialed and experienced teams in Geelong and Hawthorn before it capitulated meekly to eventual premier West Coast in the Preliminary Final in Perth. The club’s progression has been forward and upward since it finished 2013 with two wins and appointed Paul Roos as coach. The number has increased to four, seven, 10, 12, and now 14 games. The

    DRAFT STORY: THE BYSTANDERS by Whispering Jack

    It was an eerie feeling, like floating on air high above the events taking place on the ground below. This was the New Draft, a two day festival of little importance to Melbourne supporters on the first night and seemingly, of little consequence on the following day. It was as if we were the bystanders of the 2018 AFL National Draft. From the time the Demons traded away their first round selection in this year’s event as part of the deal to secure Jake Lever more than 12 months ago, it was
