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

Im sure many make their rating of ANB the same way they rate most others... their highlight reel

This kid will never have the flashy fend-offs, the huge pack marks, the big spoils etc etc... He just isnt that type of player.

What he does do better than most is run to contests, run to make space, run to fill space, run to block, run to present, run run run.

Every team needs players of this type, and i reckon we are very lucky to have him. Reminds me a lot of Cotchin in that regard... Not a huge highlight reel, but heaps and heaps of repeat efforts that others dont or cant provide.

Get around him.

I love Bernie but he looked terrible last week, I'd like Fritsch to play back and Kent (or maybe Hannan) for Bernie.

 

Would love to see Kent back in the side....   I wonder though if we can play all three of Kent, Garlett and Spargo.

I think not letting Sydney play a loose man in defence will go a long way to winning this game. That’s most likely a Aliir Aliir or a McVeigh! McVeigh is there kicker out of half back and needs be manned up like a rash when Sydney have the ball in there hands. 

Pederson can come in and chop out Max in the ruck but also allow either of Hogan and T Mac to push up the ground. Meaning Aliir Aliir is most likely going to have to man him up. If Pedo leads up it allows us to get over the back and expose the Swannies with Our smaller types.

If Aliir Aliir is going to play loose he needs to be manned up!

Yep, we need to make Aliir accountable as much as possible. I do think Pedo could be handy in this regard. Maybe start him up forward and then shift down back if need be.

Surely  Aliir goes to T Mac or Hogan.  Grundy is out

Hannebery the only in for the Swans.  Rohan left as emergency.

They have a very small backline, I wonder if we'll see Peds play forward, at least initially to try and stretch them or disrupt their game plan, then drop back if needed? Hogan or TMac could then try and run Alex Johnston around a lot, he played well last week but has been out for a long time.

Go Pedo! I reckon he is in to give Max a chop out, as much as to replace Smith.

Bernie may just have played his last game with Hibberd to return soon - even more so if Hunt plays well.

JKH very lucky.

So where's Pedo playing considering hes been an abject failure as the third tall forward this year?

Good selections. Hunt is playing for his spot, so i hope he grabs it. 

Pace on the MCG will be critical if we are playing in September

Not bad Pedo for smith , hunt for Vince is an upgrade on both based on last week although smith was quite good

Pedo in... that’s weird unless we are playing tmac back. Doesn’t make sense to me. Look too tall again.

Pedo in for his versatility and 'insurance' value.  I like that! 

Hunt in for his pace.  I like that too!

No idea where Pedders fits in to be honest.

Unless they think he can play the Joel Smith/Lever role.

If T Mac continues to kick like last week, he'll probably be of more use down back.

Pedo's been starring in defence so I expect him play some heavy minutes down there and then chop Max out.

Pedo has been playing back at Casey, so I assume he will playing the third tall role down back and ruck relief.

If you're JFK (and Vanders) you wouldn't want to play a poor game with Melksham and Hibberd due back next week.

I think that's what they have been trialling him back at Casey for . Gives us good flexibility to ruck swap with tmac of we get desperate

Maybe maxy is not 100% so pedo in to give him a good chop out, maxy could spend a lot of time in the goal square

Happy with the changes, much as we all love Bern he does have that look of a player approaching the end. Pedo to drop back behind the ball and give Frost a hand containing Franklin

With Pedo and Hunt in team looks stronger, JKH fortunate, Kent unlucky. Stronger next week with Hibberd  and Melksham back. Go Dees.
