Changes v Gold Coast Suns

Recommended Posts

I know the cupboard is pretty bare in terms of depth so limited changes this week. However Fritsch and Lewis are both a mile off. Hore is slow and so we will struggle with both him and Lewis in the backline together.

I'm in QLD next week, and potential to get to Metricon

I've made no arrangements but what's the go with getting in? Assume you just roll up and walk through an unattended gate and take one of the many vacant seats??

Pretty much.... The parking is horrible and the public transport to the ground is pretty bad. Either you park at a close school which usually has a shuttle bus service to the ground or you get the train and then a bus in. If you're staying close enough ie Broadbeach I recommend just getting a cab.

The ticketing is pretty much behind the goals or level 2 general admission other seats are reserved seating you can pre purchase but level two is actually a very good viewing point at metricon. 

See you there :)

Changes...

Omac out Preuss in... 

keilty down back. And can rotate into the ruck if need be.

It'll get pretty duey once the sun goes down probably around 3 QT so I wouldn't imagine that would play a massive factor

No changes at this stage. Let’s see how they go up North then look to change it up on the 6 day break leading into the Perth trip. I’d like to see Preuss return for Eagles.

In: Pruess (only if really ready)

out: OMac.     Keilty takes OMacs place in defense.  If they only have one tall forward, then there are several possibilities

Fritsch didn't have his best game but that is the first time he has been below par. He always looks a level above those around him in terms of skill. As for Lewis, Goody has made his feelings on the subject very clear: His value as an organiser is worth the occasional clanger. Until May, Lever and Jetta come back I can't see him being dropped.

Only make changes if we have a best 22 player come back in. Preuss for keilty, although he probably should get a second look. Can't believe the calls for omac to go out on the back of 2 plays, O'Brien and Lewis kicked 1 goal between them and that was the direct result of Frost getting lost again, if he plays like that omac will only go out when may and lever are back

Seemed omac was out marked by Gunston a few times.

Can any locals shed light on the best PT options coming from Palm Beach/Currumbin for the day?

Unfortunately the GC train line only goes as far as varsity... So you will likely need to get a bus to varsity then a train to Nerang then a bus to metricon

No change other than for injury.

Saturday saw an improved effort and a win. Reward the team. 

Keilty to remain. Needs to build confidence and feel that he belongs. Same for Stretch.

Oscar?  Another chance and to be told to take the game on. 

We need to maintain core stability until we get some players back.

How many tall forwards do the Suns have?  if we can get away with playing just Frost down there with T Mac as an emergency tall defender , the change is an easy one

 

In   -   Preuss

Out - O McDonald

The spring of Keilty to help counter 2 metre Peter?

I like Preuss but Keilty was good, would prefer to give Preuss another week to recover.

Bring both Preuss and Keilty in ... drop OMac immediately ....

"Another chance". Really? How many 'chances' does this bloke get? What u see is what u get. He has reached his potential.Will never have the required physicality and attack on the ball required. Gifted more games than any other. Keilty goes to defence, Preuss in. Please!!

Would like to hope that Weid can force his way in.

He'll need 4 or five this afternoon with some solid relief rucking

That is worth a second of thought. Keilty must replace OMac; his one exposure showed enough to suggest quite strongly that with a ripper game or two under his belt, he will be an enormous asset. He learned, during the game against the Hawks and also teamed well. He's on the road to something interesting.

Totally agree. Keilty will make a marque and cement his role in the Team. Preuss - if ready to play - will be an asset in many ways.

Rather a trade for the Weed. He is not fully switched on, at best. Another OMac, I'm afraid.

I’m staggered that anybody could suggest that Declan Keilty should be dropped next week ahead of Oscar MacDonald.

After those pathetic efforts of Oscar that cost us 2 goals in the last quarter, I’m done with him.  The Club burnt Lynden Dunn to get games into Oscar and he looks like being a C Grader at best. 

Absolutely. A wasted jumper, week in, week out, year long, two years long, every time he plays, for that matter. Occupies enormous defensive resources to back up his predictable errors, flaws, weakness, lack of endeavour and snail's pace. ABSOLUTELY.

I would like to think we could beat WCE and Collingwood in coming weeks but I think there is about the same chance of the Weid filling your hope DJ.

    SAME STORY, DIFFERENT SONG by George on the Outer

    Melbourne was still suffering from the same old story - a lack of AFL capable players from which to choose at the selection table - and the Western Bulldogs got to sing their song again. But wait, that wasn’t the Doggie’s song we’ve been hearing for the last 30 years, it was some other concoction and no-one knew the words to it but whatever it was, they got to mumble it with gusto after a huge 8 point win! The sad thing is that the Bulldogs (or Footscray or whatever they choose to call

    DOGGED by KC from Casey

    On Sunday, the Casey Demons met the Footscray VFL under the roof at the same venue where their nemesis took them down in the 2017 grand final and the result left them with the same feeling of disappointment - this time with a seven point defeat that ended the club’s four game winning streak and made things a lot harder in terms of playing in this year’s final series.   And, as has so often happened this year, the Demons let the game get away from them with but failing to take advantage of th

    BARKING MAD by The Oracle

    There was so much hype proliferating about Melbourne’s prospects for season 2019 a mere four months ago, that one could be forgiven for thinking anyone contemplating the prospect of a bottom four finish for the Demons at the time was barking mad. That however, is the prospect that they face at the moment and a loss to the Bulldogs on Sunday would make it a virtual certainty.  The club’s downward spiral after several years of moving steadily on an upward trajectory has been well documented i

    THE MELBOURNE WAY by George on the Outer

    Much has been made by the coaching staff of playing a “Melbourne way” style of play. The nail-biting finish by the Demons in the dying minute of the game could not have been any more the case in point.   Leading by a game-high 38 points late in the third quarter, and by five goals at the final change, this should have been the catalyst for a romp home to an easy win.   But that is not the “Melbourne way” and the supporters, especially those with a severe case of MFCSS (aka intense inse

    PINK AND BLUE CAN’T KICK TRUE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took on the Northern Blues at home on Saturday  in a game that was crucial in terms of their hopes for September and they took away the valuable four points on offer after some worrying moments. Most of those worries were self-inflicted as a result of some shocking inaccuracy in front of goal, sloppiness in play and a little bit of indiscipline that all combined to make the game a lot closer than it should have been. The final scoreboard showed the Demons winning the P

    GO FIGURE by Sam the Stats Man

    In May last year, a rampant Melbourne side demolished Carlton by 109 points at the MCG. The Demons did as they pleased and ran rings against a young, abysmal Blues combination. The Dees led in virtually every key performance indicator, notably entering the inside 50 metre mark 63 times to 33 and the superiority of their attack was highlighted by a 74% shooting accuracy rate (to 47%).  A little more than a year later the two sides face each other for the first time since that rout and the ta

    GORN AT THE GABBA by George on The Outer

    With Melbourne leading the Brisbane Lions in the second term, and the game in the balance, a Max Gawn ankle injury signalled that the Demons were as good as gorrnnn for the match. Without a suitable 2nd ruck and (once again) forced to use either Tom McDonald, Tim Smith or Sam Weidemann in the ruck the Demons found themselves without a forward line that could kick a winning score. Not that anything really changed, as the forward line has been completely dysfunctional all season and one

    GAMBIT by KC from Casey

    The opening gambit of Saturday afternoon’s game told us everything about who would be its main players and who would come out on top. The Casey Demons were eager to turn the tables on the Box Hill Hawks who beat them in last year’s grand final and then gave them a first up mauling at City Oval, Box Hill. Kicking with the aid of a strong breeze in the opening term, Braydon Preuss’ first hit out went straight to the diminutive Jay Kennedy Harris who pounced with a 70 metre shot at goal that sailed

    MURDER BY NUMBERS by Sam the Stats Man

    The respective ladder positions of this week’s combatants tell the story of one side on the rise and the other in steep decline. Since their most recent meeting which took place early last year, the Dees and the Lions have changed positions. They are opposed to each again on the former’s home turf with the locals in fine fettle after blowing St Kilda off the park at Marvel Stadium.  The Lions’ home ground advantage has been a major consideration so far this year. They have won five out of s

    MUD HEAP by KC from Casey

    In the opening round of the 2018 VFL season, the Casey Demons enjoyed an emphatic 107 point victory over Coburg at Piranha Park. The team was loaded with Melbourne listed players (half a dozen of them were in the team that beat Fremantle on Saturday) and the side was in its way to a grand final appearance. A season and a half later, the club returned to the same venue in the hope of kick starting a season that had gone somewhat awry under new coach Sam Radford and while they tasted victory (as y

    PRETENDERS SENT PACKING by George on the Outer

    Fremantle, the Perth pretenders at sixth on the premiership table should have easily accounted for the Demons, sitting barely a game off the bottom of the ladder.   And for the majority of the game, it certainly looked that would be the case, until the final quarter, when the Demons stopped giving the Dockers easy chances, or making plain, dumb decisions. Not that their situation was helped by some simply appalling umpiring during the match, that kept gifting Fremantle easy scores.  Th

    ORWELLIAN by Whispering Jack

    Please permit me to begin this rather tragic pathetic preview of Melbourne’s forthcoming game against Fremantle with some personal reflections.   Two years ago, we had visitors staying with us who are all sports fans so we arranged tickets for the entire family for the Melbourne vs Fremantle game at the MCG. The Dockers were struggling at the time while the Demons were on the up and up so I was fairly confident about the outcome. Naturally, we all left the ground bitterly disappointed.
