Changes vs Western Bulldogs

Recommended Posts

Solid win vs Freo.  Another must win next Saturday, and we are back on the MCG vs the Doggies.

The conditioning staff will have their most important week of the season, as recovery is paramount after playing in tropical conditions.

Smith has to go. So far away from it.

Goodwin will stick with ANB, but perhaps shouldn't.

makes sense except one plays back the other forward.

Could the versatile Pederson get a game down back? ... Frankly I' think Bernie will return

I didnt see him either. Hannan did well given the conditions.

Joel Smith spent most of the night getting in Hogan’s way tonight.

If Smith was surplus to our defensive needs this week then no point playing him next week, so I expect him to be dropped. Not sure who gets his spot, but I think a running player over a tall.

Would love to drop Lewis and ANB but don’t see an obvious replacement.

I'm a Nibbler fan, but he has to go for mine.  In Bernie.

What was wrong with Lewis other than the stray elbow?

Melksham has to be looked at. Last 4 weeks dreadful.

I thought Smith, Spargo and ANB were our least effective tonight. Lewis also did some

Smith played most of the game forward so not sure there is a role for him. 

Not sure there is anyone really demanding a promotion though.

Since Queens Birthday our glaring weaknesses have been leg speed and defensive pressure.

Frost ,Garlett and Smith are pretty quick.

I thought Smith had a fair first half.

VDB got 16 tackles in the reserves.

Spargo goes alright but he has limitations.

Lewis had another mistake riddled game.

If Vince and Lewis aren't getting pushed out we are not moving forward.

I assumed Smith in the forward line was in response to the way Fremantle occupied our forward line, rather than our idea per se. It wasn’t going to be OMac, Frost, Hibberd or Jetta, so he’s th logical next choice. I can’t think of any other reason for it because he definitely did not look a natural forward.

ANB lucky to keep his spot, hes in his 2nd bad patch of form for the season after his slow start.
