Yep, Dunstan didn't get 30 possies so he's out for Viney

Lever ....... must come in

Yep. I thought Dunstan was fine, even good, but that’s the pecking order.

I thought Smith was okay too other than that one Very Joel Smith moment that we won’t talk about any further.

Would like not to see Smith play ever again if he dishes that up. Honestly, as bad as Frost as far as giving away goals and shots on goal. 

A few down tonight. Rivers won't want to play like that again with Hibberd and Salem not too far off. 

Weid keeps his spot and so does Brown. They made the most of what was horrendous ball coming in. 

Dunstan and Smith out for you know who. 

Amazing we can win a game like that against that oppo having been so off offensively

The MC should have an easier task this week:  Vines for Dunstan;  Lever for Smith.

Out: Dunstan, Smith

In: Viney, Lever

Correct. 
Smith was not bad but he’s not and never will be Lever. 
Open to making Dunstan the sub. Bedford didn’t play today so they probably want to get game time into him.

Harsh on Dunstan as it can take time to establish oneself in the team. However, unless he gets high 20s or more in possessions, he is going out for Viney.

Same deal with Smith. He has improved out of sight this year, but Lever's ability to organize our back six and play the intercept role makes him indispensible.

It is very harsh but when you are premiers it can be harsh if you’re on the edge of the 22.

With Casey having played today, I feel Bedford will get a run in the VFL next week and Dunstan will be our sub.

I'd like to get 'Bill' Laurie in as sub if we are looking to ease some young talent in. Thought he had some very good moments today.

Harmes clearly wasn’t right in the second half.

Maysy is nursing something. I get the feeling if Petty and Lever get settled they’ll very much consider giving May a week off.

A couple to watch.

If Harmes needs a week off it could be Gus back to a wing, Lever down back. Or Dunstan stays in and Sparrow does more wing and less on ball.

Thought Dunstan was good tonight. Viney in, he's playing some of his best football right now.

 

Lever for Smith.

 

IN: Kicking accuracy please, I wasn't concerned at any stage of the game, but those kicks for goal gave me the [censored].

absolutely no way a player should make their 'debut' as a sub

hate that when other clubs do it and wouldn't want to see us do it either

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
