Toby Greene ruled out for 3 weeks thankfully

Not doubting you but I thought the reports said Greene could miss at little as 2 matches.

I missed the last bit of the interview but maybe it was was Davis who said he was ruled out for 3. Sorry didnt get it all, we'll know by end of the day I suppose mate.

The GWS rehab report from a couple of days ago said 2-3 weeks. Perhaps MSF heard an update.

Greene has had a horrible season injury wise. Probably worse than Jack Viney.

Was watching the Davis interview on AFL Tonight and he clearly said 2-3 weeks. 

Since then its been clarified he won't play until 1st week of finals.

Giants run home isn’t that easy either. Adelaide is playing ok at the moment and are a sneaky chance to beat them this week imo. 

Could they miss if they lose all 3?

I’ve never watched AFL tonight, the interview I heard was on TripleM yesterday afternoon so what I heard was right if he’s not back until finals

On my god. Just did ladder prediction. 

I had us beating swans - then losing to eagles and giants. 

We would finish 9th!!!

potentially the last game v Giants may decide who finishes 4th or 9th  (winner gets 4th  loser gets 9th!!!!) 

We have to win 2 of the last 3 games  If we do, we can finish 4th

That selection of Petty over Frost against the Saints and also not selecting Frost against Port is looking great now, isn't it?

Frost should have played 22 games for us this year. He's a criminally underrated footballer, and is particularly good for us given our weaknesses. Not because of his footballing skills mind you but because of his athleticism.

When he plays his role as a lockdown player, he's great for us and is exactly what we need with our high pressing backline. Should always be our last man back, as Garlett should always be our deepest forward.

I agree with this half way!

I thunk his athleticism is perfect for our game plan.  His ability to close a gap quickly and pressure a player when the ball is coming in fast is a perfect attribute for that position.

BUT his turnovers with back in hand, often in simple situations,  due to both skill errors and poor decision making leaves us very vulnerable to a counter attack because of the way we set up. 

This is why we like player Hibberd, Salem, and Lewis down back, plus Jetta and OMac are reliable decision makers. 

Interestingly early in the year we potted Lever's performance but his defensive game was fine it was his disposal that made him look bad. 

Frosts other issue is that he doesn't track back to position well.  So once he gets involved in the attacking party,  he loses his place in the structure and struggles to get back in. That too is catastrophic to our game plan.

 

Hopefully he can improve those elements, because I'd love him to cement a place in the team.

Along with not moving him to Hawkins much earlier in the Geelong game.
