  • Podcast Tonight @ 8:30pm


Clint Bizkit

Changes v North Melbourne

Recommended Posts

Out: Bugg, Harmes, Wagner, Lewis

No idea who comes in at this stage, our depth being good is a myth.

Bugg was diabolical.

Harmes has been completely ineffectual.

Wagner wasn't so bad later in the game but we need probably Frost to take one of Brown or Waite to free up Lever.

Lewis has become a liability.

Lewis second half was very good last week.

Wont argue he didn't have a great game tonight.

Agree someone like frost needs to come.in to free up Lever

Bugg couldn’t hit anything other than an opponent off the ball

Lewis has far too many brain fades - cost us big time last week.

I didn’t think Wagner was particularly bad. 

(Won’t be dropped, but what exactly is Lever’s role?)

We won’t drop the VC Lewis but he wasn’t great. Looked like an old man being on the ground all night. 

Bugg might need a week to get back into but didn’t inspire. With Kent firing again the pressure is on which is great.

I think Frost will come in for Wagner although Hunt needs a kick up the backside!!

Except for the one or two classy things he does a game, I really don’t share the love of Salem. Hardly noticed him. Very over rated imo.

Probably out Wagner for Frost for the talls.

Thin ice = Salem, Hunt, Bugg

I love it, Clint.  Drop 4 blokes after a win yet you have no idea who to bring in for them.  Clearly you've thought it through.

I can see possibly Frost getting a run, but the rest are probably okay.  Bugg offered more than Hannan, Lewis is no chance at this stage of being dropped and apart from one howler Wagner continues to build his confidence.

If anything, Salem and Hunt are on the shakier ground.  Hunt had just 6 touches while Salem, apart from a few good kicks forward, had little influence for the second week in a row.

I didn't see the Casey practice game, I've only seen the match report so hard to say with great confidence who deserves to come back in.

Definitely agree salem tobe dropped

I'd move him back to the backline to replace Lewis with Jones back in the middle.

Our backline is all out of wack.

Hunt needs to be at half back where he can break the lines and run forward. Rotating 3 old fellas in that spot is not a winning play. 

Lever needs a big body near him to free him up from the unprotected barage he has to cope with.

Bring in Frost for god's sake just tell him to lower his eyes when kicking.  

Bugg is what he is. For those that forgot, tonight you were reminded. 

Harmes has has no impact as many have said and Salo is not a mid. Maybe Gus comes in for one of them. 

We have much to worry about with North.

The Casey practice game was against Frankston who are just  a scratch team this year. Nothing really can be read into that game.

If Kennedy plays well against Coburg next week and Bugg fails against Norf then I think you might be right in calling for  a change.

I'll be shocked if Bugg gets a second chance.

Frost in is a must for Ben Brown, maybe Kielty as a left field bolter. Wagner is the obvious casualty however the coaching staff clearly see something in him.

Lewis (and Vince) are not contributing what their role is meant to be - which is consistently great decisions and rarely make mistakes which compensates for lack of atheleticism. As the season progresses I think only one will be in the team but too early to drop one.

I’d drop Lewis if I had my way and bring in Frost and toy with Bugg out for whoever is in form - maybe Kent for the foot speed and ability to hit the scoreboard. What I would say for Bugg is he does run hard forward. He was often alone in the goal square as a goal sailed through but Harmes when pushing forward does the same and is more versatile than Bugg.

Don't change a winning team for no reason.

IN: Frost (team balance…Brown is a lanky beast and we need someone to go with him)
OUT: Wagner (two poor games in a row, plus he's a defender)

Our depth is actually quite bad. We can barely field an AFL-level best 22 with Viney and McDonald out.

Salem on thin ice. Hunt was good last week and has the points in the bank to stay in. Got to bring in Frost to take Waite, frees up Lever

Salem won’t be dropped. I was surprised at the lack of ball he had, but he was 2nd leading pressure acts in the game. He blocks rather than taking the ball. He’s fine.

Smashed in the middle really a young group who looked better with Hogan up around the contest last week . 

With tmac out do we try Lever as an onballer who pushes fowrard for 5 mins a quarter .

Big Cam  could switch back 

Try Frost over Wagner . 

if Hunt isnt injured (I suspect he is ) get him moving on ball of half back or forward- no doubt teams are playing dee on a defender . 

 North defend well in the air we can counter that with some run deep In defence ourselves and ‘halve the contest’ Frost is our man. Lever loose in defence against the kangas could  work also 

.Bugg needs time Hanann is another who could come in if someones sore - . 

Go dees . in Goodwin we trust.

Harmes is a headless chook.

Lewis is not a backman.

Bugg is horrible by foot.

Jetta is not half the player he was last season.

A fit and firing Kent who

kicks on his opposite foot when required would be awesome .

Agree..north are being touted as some massive threat..did anyone watch their first half vs Saints. They were bloody awful. Saints barely beat lions the week before and if not for some key misses from Brisbane would have lost. I'd be bringing in Frost for Wags. That's it. Maybe Brayshaw..Lions were on the their home deck..got iffy frees in front of goal to score about 4 goals. We didn't play that bad. The conditions were slippery as f. Settle down.
