I see that Dean Kent is an inclusion for St Kilda in what will be his 100th game.

Genuinely forgot that he was still on a senior list.  I wonder if the 100th is a farewell gesture.

Yeah he's out of contract which surely won't get renewed. Hope he gets a farewell game.

Interesting, may well be? Out of contract I believe.

Will be watching Harmes energy levels and ability to run out a full game closely. Surprised he played an entire VFL game 5 days earlier. 

 

Agree Jimmy, it's a concern but sports science and what not these days, they must have a gauge on it to some extent

Tough on JJ but has been obviously hampered by his knee recently. Hopefully can recover full fitness for finals. Sparrow's spot is vulnerable so every chance he can get back into the side

No surprise in the selections at all. Jordan gets the ball a lot but is too predictable in movement and speed. Opposition can read him properly. Harmes has been bought in to be a parasite up Neals [censored].

I'm not unhappy with the change but you have to feel for JJ. Spent most of last year as the sub, including the GF, manages to play in the 22 most games this year and now, on the eve of the finals, it looks like he might be warming the bench again

Just like in the GF...really horrific

Looks a little like Roman concrete - tough enough, readying and settling for the weeks ahead. Get ya game plans ready boys, we are depending on you in so many ways.

Not stiff. He’s been fading out of games for a month.

Yeah “stiff” was the wrong choice of word. “Unlucky” more apt. I do think he’s playing pretty sore at the moment, and the timing is tough.

It's a case of horses for courses. If Harmes can mininise Neale's influence the change will be justified, however unlucky Jordon is entitled to feel. Bit worried about Spargo, though. His impact in recent games has been minimal.

After such a long run in the team, I still doubt whether Spargo has had his role carefully defined; he just does not get the opportunities to excel with his skillset terribly often. He is one of our best feeders; he does not lack courage, he will tackle when necessary - but he runs around in circles looking for a receive himself, often landing with a much larger opponent at which point his role is abruptly impossible.

Sparrow very lucky thought he was worse recently than JJ but it's a good problem to have. Harmes had to come in for Neale.

Hopefully he's picked on form, we need them to put up a good performance against the Swans

What does Dean Kent got do with Teams R23 team v Brisbane ?  Get on the St.Kilda website you people . 

News report we are adding grunt to our team by including Harmes. Have I missed something we didn't need grunt because Harmes played for Casey !!!! This team is more vanilla than vanilla (poor comparison I suppose ) , we don't have any aces up or sleeve i.e Joel Smith  or JVR . We will get done . Maybe we should offer Hird a an assistant coach position, actually Hird has more of a footy brain than Goody.

With the injury to Tmac this side is about as good as it gets. We should be able to get a win in QLD. 

….and maybe, just maybe TMac may just be an outside chance in a few weeks.  Not sure if this is wishful thinking on my part, but I live in hope.  GO DEES!

Great continuity, minimal changes again, wow, what pressure for spots. No-one can really under perform the roles at this stage, so expecting a very hardened, and pressured approach to our game.

I thought Harmes played with desperation at VFL level last week. He worked hard, to get the call up 

With the dry days up there, I'd expect a little less dew on the ground. Marking and clean ball use will be needed, get it done BBB and Dogga.

Brissy will be ready for us, but I think we are playing on the front foot this season. We really ask the opposition to stick to us, as we don't give much in the first half and quite often they fold. It still remains a problem for us in the third, but with so much on the line I expect we will roll on till the end.

[Good to see Kenty as a possible in, (kick a few for us) St.kilda has a few out this week, including M.Wood who looked strong in their last one. Hoping they can do Sydney and give us a MCG game (so long as we win).]

I can see the players enjoying the VFL game in Moreton oval if we do Brissy. Plenty of sunshine, then off to watch the Sydney game on Sunday.  Good preparation but probably not. Maybe only Goody and few select leaders to the Sydney game.

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.

    DAISY DOES IT by Whispering Jack

    The Gold Coast has been treated to a feast of womens football over the past couple of days. On Friday night, the Brisbane Lions claimed flag favouritism when they knocked the Adelaide Crows off their second placed perch at Metricon Stadium. Then on Saturday evening at the same venue, the Melbourne Demons consolidated their hold on that vacated second spot when, they ruthlessly smashed a finals contender in consecutive weeks, this time the home town favourites, the Suns.    It was a case
