Agreed, Hunt saved at least three goals with just desperate pressure acts and his speed made a huge difference on offense.

Hunt should stay for all those reasons and more. On Sunday he was the third demon into the melee and he disappeared in a sea of bodies. No hesitation, no regard for self presevation...... just flying the flags for his mates. The players milling around on the fringes of the melee was instructive (Pederson excused because he was ushering Hogan away) That's the type of player I want in a Melbourne jumper. More Hunt, thats what we need, not less.

I'm betting Trenners is much closer than people think, next week against the gold coast is a good chance imo

Not convinced he gets in the side at all right now I cant take anyone out for him. Oliver, Trac, ANB, M Jones all infront in the queue for me and nobody in the team realy deserves to be dropped. Brayshaw will likely make for now but he still had an influence. I would give Trenners at least half the year dominating at casey to get his confidence sky high if he comes in later.

Not to mention that they may earmark Hunt for Billings.

I understand what you're saying, I just don't think it's worth worrying about such things.

Injury occurs from things like fatigue, completely random/innocuous and unlucky situations, an imbalance in the physiology of an individual etc.

There are risks involved in all of them. And in all of life. 

You may as well be closing your eyes and crossing your fingers every time he dons the Casey jumper, trains, is in the weights room, fornicates etc.

He'll be fine Stu.

Play on.

 

NO NO NO cant let him do that. Far too risky !!!! Back groin neck spinal issues   Too damn risky

Lots of posters (myself included) suggesting that Gus may make way for Clarry against the Saints.  

Gus certainly hasn't hit the ground running like he did in his first season, and it got me thinking about the following comments from Roosy in this years edition of Heartbeat:  "One of the things we're working on with Angus is his training habits.  They've certainly improved and he's got more consistency in his training after Christmas".  If Gus's training habits were below par before Christmas, and he subsequently lost several weeks as a result of his pre-season injury, it suggests that he might still be a bit underdone.  If this is the case, playing predominantly through the midfield at Casey might be the best way to get miles into his legs.

On the "saintsational" website they have forum called the animal enclosure for 18 year olds and above only. St Kilda supporters are lower scum than even Collingwood supporters.

Trying to keep schoolgirls out of it.

Most of the players who are currently in the 2nds will get their chance sooner rather then later .

The reality is that we are just one bad lose and a few injuries/reports to have 3 ins.

trenners, Trac, Oliver, m jones, ANB and stretch will all play before round 10. 

even injured Dawes and Vanders will get a shot.

Assuming there are no changes to the senior side, this could be the Casey side to run out against Essendon on Sunday.

Terlich O McDonald White  
Stretch Garland Smith  
Grimes Trengove M Jones  
Newton Dawes Petracca  
Hullett Weideman Neal-Bullen  
Max King Oliver Michie  
Munro Huchins McInerney T Smith

I think you'll find Jake Spencer will have his first game back - and likely opposed to Mark Jamar!

Going on Justin Plapp's report if anyone is going to be promoted it will be the very deserving Jack Trengove. Won't that be something to see? Petracca is still not staying with the game plan by the sound of his report. Both will be in the ones before too long but I think JT will get there first.

Despite the fact he's clearly underdone, Gus still did some handy things on the weekend and against Collingwood as well. I still think he needs a good month at Casey to get some fitness and form back. I heard somewhere that Salem was on the bench for a good portion of the last quarter with ice on his upper part of his hamstring. 

At this stage

In: Oliver, Petracca

Out: Brayshaw, Salem (only if injured)

I think JT will be an emergency for Saturday night.  I still think the Role Brayshaw is playing at the moment is best suited to Petracca.  I thought JT would get back in before Petracca but seeing the inside mids we have playing well at the moment and really there are 2 roles up for grab 6th Forward and back up ruck forward, although Pederson and Frost are doing Ok be great if we had one player that was a combination of both.

Someone should certainly be dropped if they don't fit in to the intended match ups. It is about putting the best team on the park to beat the other team. It depends on their strengths and weaknesses.

My only concern about tracca is his tank. I saw Casey on Saturday night, and he was a long way from the best afield (that was Tenners by some distance in a very ordinary display by Casey). I suspect though he is a big occasion player given his underage record, but he did not have a complete pre season, and that is why the selectors are holding him back IMHO.

Nevertheless, I suspect he will play in the seniors this week.

I agree.  I reckon Trenners should be next cab off the rank.  Good grab for his size.  Finds the ball and generally kicks goals.

Interesting.

That's one forced change but still doesn't give us any indication of who will come in.

A number of guys could play half-back.

Tmac, Dunn, Lumumba, Wagner, Hunt, Jetta, Vince

The defence is pretty well covered by this group of 7.

I reckon it gives Petracca every opportunity if they manage Brayshaw

Out: Brayshaw, Salem

In: Oliver, Petracca

So, if we look at it purely on form, Brayshaw will make way.

They won't want to upset the winning balance, so it will be someone who can play the HFF/Mid rotation like gus has been playing.

Ins: Trac

Out: Gus

------------------------------------------------

FB: Jetta - Dunn - H

HB: Salem - McD - Wags

C: Vince - N.Jones - Harmes

HF: Kent - Hogan - Kennedy

FF: Garlett - Pedo - Watts

R: Gawn - Tyson - Viney

I: Trac - Frost - Hunt - Bugg

E: ANB - Trenners - Oliver

-----------------------------------------------

Match-ups:

T-MAC - Nick

Dunn - Bruce

Wags - McCartin

No Oliver?  He's had a nice rest...deserves to stay in the team.  He was in the winning balance last week after all...

    HORSING AROUND by George On The Outer

    Before the match it was claimed that Collingwood were a “one trick pony” side.  Well that one trick worked very well against Melbourne, as they extended their winning streak to 11 for the season. Meanwhile, the Demons continued to horse around with structures which simply haven’t been working. The one tall forward option with resting rucks failed yet again, in an almost identical manner to the game against the Bulldogs recently.  93 more possessions, 65 inside 50 entries 24 more than the op

    THE BUBBLE by The Oracle

    "I feel like we've got more than enough experience in close games. It'd be nice to win one by five or six goals and have that pulse lower a little bit late in games, but that's not our story." — Scott Pendlebury on the eve of his team’s forthcoming Round 21 game against Melbourne. When you read words such as these, you know it’s time for Melbourne fans to be humble. The old enemy is up and about while our mantle of invincibility has vanished into thin air.

    ANCHORS AWEIGH! by George on the Outer

    So came the cry from the Dockers as the S.S. Fremantle set sail with the hopes of all of their supporters on board on the mighty ship. Their task was to do nothing more than to defeat the Melbourne side and a top four position on the ladder was assured. The problem for them was that their leaky boat came up against the mighty battleship - Team Demon and it didn’t take long after they left port for their vessel to develop a multitude of leaks. The first salvo was fired by First Officer

    SWEET SIXTEEN by KC from Casey

    The game was an uneven match up from the very beginning. The Casey Demons, representing an alignment between the reigning premiers Melbourne and the outer southeastern expansion area centred around a sprawling Cranbourne with its rapid population growth and the stand alone Northern Bullants from the inner north who sit at the foot of the VFL table. With 14 AFL listed players and a couple more having experience at the elite level opening with the breeze at their backs, the result was inevitable.

    THE HUNGER GAME by Whispering Jack

    The game may well have taken place a day short of ten weeks ago but the atmospherics surrounding Friday night’s match between Melbourne (then Narrm) and Fremantle are light years apart from those that prevailed when the teams last faced off the MCG in late autumn. On one hand, the Demons were in the midst of a 17 game winning spree that included a drought breaking premiership victory. On the other, the Dockers were coming off a six goal thrashing at Optus Stadium in teeming rain against a then s

    DOG-TIED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were extended early against rivals Footscray VFL in their matchup played in wet and greasy conditions at VU Whitten Oval on Saturday but, after establishing their authority in the second quarter, they were able to tie up their opponents at the end to maintain their undefeated run which now stands at 15.  The game began under grey threatening skies and the wet conditions turned the game into a tight slog with scoring kept down to a minimum. The Demons were held goalless agai

    DOG DAY by George On The Outer

    It is said that every dog has its day and that was certainly the case when the Western Bulldogs defeated Melbourne under the roof at the Docklands on Saturday night.   While the Dogs were certainly at the very top of their game, the same couldn’t be said of the Demons. All around the ground, dismal individual performances and dismal team performances were the order of the day.  Fans should have been worried right from the start as the game turned into a goal-fest. This is not their team’

    RAINING CATS & DOGS by Whispering Jack

    Despite winning their game in the Red Centre at the weekend, the consensus among the pundits is that Melbourne’s days in the sun are over. Ten rounds into the season, they were the competition’s top dogs and regarded virtually unbeatable but their recent form (three wins from the last seven games) has put them well below par, perilously clinging onto second spot on the ladder with storm clouds on the horizon. The air of invincibility that once surrounded them is gone and the Demons face a t

    THE KOZZY SHOW by George On The Outer

    Q: Melbourne is playing Port Adelaide at Traeger Park, Alice Springs and once again, it doesn’t have a properly functioning forward line — so from where were the goals going to come?   A: Kysaiah Pickett.     In a one man show in front of his adoring fans, he racked up six majors to give the Demons the edge in the game and to finally run out winners by 14 points.     The result could well have been very different without his efforts with Melbourne failing to score a major

    SWITCHING ON by The Oracle

    We can’t take anything for granted, can we? After all, the Melbourne that took Port Adelaide for a long ride around the Adelaide Oval in early April of this year and switched off late in the game is finding it difficult of late to switch back on. Apart from a stellar display against the Brisbane Lions a fortnight ago, the Demons have laboured during the middle part of the season and, with a tough draw ahead of them, have reached a critical stage of the season after their first flag in decad

    STORIES by KC from Casey

    There were more than a few stories about Friday night’s game between the Casey Demons and Geelong at GMHBA Stadium. The first was one of complete domination in the first quarter (six goals to nil), ascendency in the last (five to two) and the second was about the void in between (zero to seven). The third was about how, in the end, the Demons retained their unbeaten record despite the hell of a scare they had on the rainswept spaces of the Cattery. However, the story that folk might be

    NIPPED by George on the Outer

    Melbourne’s twenty eight point loss to Geelong down at Taxpayer Funded Park provided plenty of cat-nip for the Geelong fans and their team.  After all, the Cats go away thinking they have now got the Demons sorted after the embarrassments heaped upon them last season and their taste of this cat-nip will get even stronger in the coming weeks, courtesy of the AFL draw which gives them three more home games at the same venue in the six remaining rounds.  Yet Melbourne, despite this loss
