So this is what I'd go with:

In: Chandler, McDonald, Viney, Lever

Out: Pickett, Jackson, Sparrow, Smith

I think they'll go for Bedford over Chandler and Dunstan gets another game.

I wouldn't have Chandler any where  near  it .

Bedford for me

What about Majak Daw as second ruckman.

Max can cover their Jnr fella this week and forecast looks likely to be wet & greasy.  Maybe a bit of minor pinch hitting in the middle (and occasionally in the F50) from either Weid and/or Plugger Mac.

The wet weather would be better suited to Macca or Melk coming in.  Daw is no doubt a handy ruck foil and intercept mark a kick behind the play or occasionally resting forward but that's it IMV.  Once the ball hits the deck or is in motion he really struggles and he's a pretty dodgy set shot for goal.

Doubt there's any chance the MC would play him in the wet and we would have to be very low on stocks before he'd be anywhere near the picture for a senior call up under even the finest conditions.  Unless, Lucifer forbid, both Max & Dogga were both out at the same time.

I don't often agree with your selections W but that feels about right ...subject to no further outs!

I still think McEvoy out for the Hawks hurts them more than our outs. Our wet weather footy was pretty good last year, could live with a smaller runner, ground is not going to be heavy it is the G after all, give Bedford a go.

I’m excited for Bedford. I think he deserves a shot at it. From all reports he’s doing a lot right.

If the ins are Lever, Viney and Bedford we still need a ruck back up. Weed has been doing a bit at Casey. Let’s hope he steps up. The weather suggests a lot of ground ball so Dunstan might be in his element. 

Opportunities abound for guys keen to prove their worth.

Magic Daw is ready. Let him loose!

And Melk's time is now. Both fit & firing

Joel Smith made one mistake otherwise he played a good game - May made a similar mistake in the last qtr - pretty tough call to drop him over that 

 

Jack Riewoldt's poster in the second (?) was a direct result of Smith getting his positioning completely wrong. He did a couple of nice things and a couple of ordinary things. Our defenders these days rarely do ordinary things, so it sticks out.

May's handball was cut off on the wing, which ended up rebounding to Riewoldt. Smith simply handballed under little pressure to Lynch, who turned around and kicked a goal. Not really the same thing IMV.

I wouldn't have either of them. Bit we do need to bring in a pressure forward and it shouldn't be Melksham.

Damn this is really going to test our depth, was going to happen eventually though so bring on the challenge. 

Bedford for Kozzie

Majak for LJ maybe? Or does TMac come in and Weid second rucks?

Viney back for Sparrow

Lever back and Smith makes way

Well, this is more interesting than the normal ins and outs thread, in a worrying sort of way.

Can I ask if a player has Covid does that mean a longer stint on the sidelines than the normal H&S ?  Also what worries me is the flow on effect plus the fact a player's body would be weakened by this B.....y Covid.

so......"it depends"

Would love to see a surprise selection… a chance to give woewodin a go?

Taj went off injured late in the game with a head knock and it wasn't his best game.

    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

    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
