Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 21

Recommended Posts

The one thing I really like about the next three games is that no one thinks we are a shoe in for any of them. 

We don't think that ..... do we ???

And if we beat wet coke people will say we got them when they were still reeling from the Gaff incident.

And if we beat GWS people will say it is only because of their wretched run with injuries.

Only trouble is they may be getting Rohan back, which makes their forward line that little bit more complex.

But the case is pretty clearly there for having an extra in defence to at least break even and mop up the mess. In what is likely to be a grinding game the last thing we want is for too many easy goals to slip through against us.

It is a necessity against Buddy, we do not want a repeat of Geelong and Hawkins leading into wide open spaces and slaughtering us again do we?

Hopefully Goody and his Goons are on top of this game day and the necessary plans are in place.

They've given us nothing with the teams. Extended bench because of a Sunday game, and only ANB a lock on that bench, with the other 3 from JKH, Bernie, weid, pedders, hunt, Kent and Hannan.

So we can rule out Wagner

Can't see them playing Pedo

Hunt seems not ready

Maybe Fritsch to replace Smith at HB?

I can see Pedo playing, particularly if Gawn won't - judging by the recent assessment as seen on channel 9 in how Max responded.

My guess is Kent in and Fritsch to cover Smith's injury.

The emergency will be interesting assuming they are looking to cover Gawn. Could be Weideman who if needed to play would share ruck duties with Tom Mac.

In reality however the naming of the four extra players tells you little except that Wagner is definitely not in favour.

Will the GOONS think about it?

Perhaps ANB out?  He's clocked up a power of kms- given SCG is smaller he could freshen for WC.

And JKH, it doesn't seem right to run him up to finals.

3 changes, probably too many.

I'm sceptical about what the clubs says about Gawn's injury and, to be honest, given our recent track record I think I'm justified in being sceptical.

The messaging at the time of an injury always seems to play it down and take the best case scenario approach and with Hibberd, Viney and now Melksham, each time it's been worse than the initial messaging suggested.

So I am not convinced that just because Goodwin said he'll play that Gawn will actually play.

Regardless, it's almost impossible to work out what the final team is going to be, as there are so many permutations available. I can see either of Kent or Hannan coming in to play forward and using Fritsch more defensive. I can see Pedersen or Hunt getting Smith's spot as a direct swap. I can see Kent or Hannan getting JKH's spot or Hunt/Pedersen getting Vince's spot.

I think we'll minimise the changes and I think we'll bring in either Kent or Hunt to replace Smith with no other change. If Gawn doesn't play, though, I think we'll give Pedersen the first ruck role, as a reward for his efforts at Casey.

I did notice that his Brownlow odds went out from 10/1 to 15/1 during the week. Bookmakers can get better information sometimes.

Not sure if this is relevant, but Sydney has played its last eight games on the same two grounds - the SCG and Etihad - neither of which much resemble the MCG in size.

Wallace on SEN made the point that the teams that have nullified Franklin have done so by having a mobile player on him and a marking player behind. If so this may mean Pederson gets the gig backing up Frost who will be his direct opponent.

would like to see Kent or Hunt replace Bernie or JKH.

Absolutely no chance ANB is dropped.  The bloke has been in terrific form over the last month and is one of our fittest players.  I guarantee he'll play.

He's a vital cog now, he's in career best form.

Absolutely.

The vision of him gut running down Adelaide Oval to kick the sealer is a prime example of his worth to our side.  As you say, he's a vital cog now.

The Band. Truly one the great bands. In terms of synergy few come close - from that era perhaps only the Who and early Beatles 

'Before The Flood' is one of the greatest live albums ever. B. Dylan and the Band at the height of their powers.

Basement tapes goes alright too.

The last waltz is arguably the greatest ever rock film. Well, second. Spinal tap being number 1.

The player that has played him best was Hurley who bodied him at the contest then pushed off him at every opportunity. There was no double team or drop off.
