Yep  Our version of Jeremy Howe, for the life of me I dont see why we cant trial using him as a bash and crash Kamikaze forward who can take a grab!

I thought you were talking about Joel Smith?

Unfortunately McDonald is the only forward on our list who seems capable of it

We’re all looking for the right mix up forward and our woes up there have been much talked about (again) this season. Came across an article today about certain stats. Here’s a bit about us.

Pre-bye, the Demons were the hardest team to score against inside 50, but they ranked 13th for scoring from their own entries. Since the bye they rank fourth for scoring from their own forward 50 entries which is a crucial increase given their noticeable forward 50 woes

Just saw stumbled across this poll. 

We need to smash Collingwood tomorrow night. Not scrape in. Not win “convincingly” or even “comfortably”. We need to SMASH them. 

Even with a GF under our belt, I feel we still have seriously unfinished business with respect to the Pies (no actual respect intended). Their supporters simply don’t rate us, and they have their reasons. 

This needs to change tomorrow night. 

Let’s go, Demons.

They have beaten us the last two times. One of only 7 clubs to beat us the last two seasons. And the only club besides the Bulldogs to beat us in both years.

Of course they are going to prefer to play us.

Yeah, I’m not shocked by the poll’s results for those reasons exactly. But seeing it laid bare like that, it’s very clear that tomorrow night is our chance to shake one of our last remaining hoodoos, and considerably skew the psychological landscape of these finals. 

A loss will be more damaging than usual.

Which is the most courageous decision? Picking one KPF or two? If one, is it more courageous to pick B Brown, Weideman or van Rooyen? If two, which combination? 

Yes, perhaps 🤔

He (Joel Smith) played forward last week at Casey and trained with forwards this week. He won't get another game till Saturday week. So who knows.

Weideman will be playing, most suitable bloke for the situation I reckon.

How wonderful for his long awaited breakout game, 6 goals, to be against his late grandpa’s team. 🤔💭 🤗

We need to put those do gooders in their place. Most despised team by a fair way. For the next 48 hours I will smash anything that is black and white into a million pieces.

As much as I hope you are correct   would you be interested in a second hand bridge,  only used by old lady's to go to church....

I tend to agree.  Lets stick with the Weid for the next couple of weeks and and allow him some consistency and continuity and not take #1 defender.  Chopping and changing in and out of the team and role is not helping his cause.  If after this run he cant impact, he may be playing elsewhere next year.

In - BBB

Out - Melk

My initial reaction was no way... but it got me thinking.  Last year we had two tall forwards but this only really clicked late in the season.  If you subscribe to the loading theories, perhaps we can't afford to have the two tall forwards unless everyone is 100% fresh?  Is that why it doesn't work so well during the season?

 

If that is the case, then you may be right.

Although my gut feel is that Goody is not happy with Weid's output and so has Melksham taking the other "tall" position.  Once BBB is ready Weid will be out.

Anybody worried about the heavy strapping on both of Lever's ankles?

 

Slightly. I suspect last game he just had a bad roll of the ankle but hopefully without further damage this gets better each day.

If Ben Brown is fit he plays but van Rooyen must be the next in line. Can't play Weid after a one possession game.

 

B: Lever, May, Hibberd

HB: Hunt, Petty, Salem

C: Langdon, Brayshaw, Jordon

HF: Petracca, Gawn, Neal-Bullen

F: Fritsch, B.Brown, Pickett

FOLL: Jackson, Oliver, Viney

IC: Rivers, Sparrow, Spargo, Melksham

SUB: Harmes 

 

I appreciate that Melksham has been defensively much better of late but there is no way I would pick him over Harmesy. His 2 long bombs masquerading as a quasi pass and a shot for goal were not flash. Things like that are not on in a Premiership team. It is a bad habit that can be costly.

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.
