PREGAME: Rd 21 vs North Melbourne

Recommended Posts

Give Oliver another week off to be extra cautious. 

It's North.

Sparrow comes in for Woewodin. 

Woey has had 4 games at AFL level and played in some big games. He'll use this as a great sounding board heading into pre season in what it takes to play 4 quarters of footy.

Happy with his development and think he'll be a classy player.

This may sound dumb to some people but I would give Max a rest for the week and play Grundy. Just keep him interested. Also after todays game max almost deserves a break.

If Oliver fit along with Sparrow then Harmes and JJ out.

North making West Coast look good at the moment, they better not pull a game out of their [censored] next week.

I mean, rebounds happen and all that, but there's only so far you can stretch the elastic.

Very much agree. It's an obvious move and one we complained about when not made last year.

A harder decision would be resting May and playing Tomlinson and Smith down back.

I'd give Schache a go as sub simply because he covers back and forward and ruck (not fantastically well perhaps)

Harmes, Hibberd, Spargo Jordon Woewodin... I'll leave to the selection committee

I say bring him in because is it North. A soft opponent so we won't be compromising our chance of winning the game by easing him back in against them.

Hibberd for Woewodin as well.

I was amazed Hibberd wasn't brought in to play on Dusty today. Dusty destroyed us for 3+ quarters and Hibberd has kept him quiet in the past. Hibberd had 32 disposals playing for Casey earlier today.

If we avoid injuries from now on we’re completely unstoppable.

Love to see Dunstan get rewarded, would be an upgrade on Jordon.

Would only be an upgrade if he played on ball full time, which means Harmes would play half forward full time.

At this stage Harmes and JJ are at least maximising their tanks and minimising their many mistakes (to a large but not overwhelming level) by rotating heavily.

Having watched Casey today, have no qualms bringing in Hibberd.

Ultimate team man that does team first things all day long.

Even at 3/4 time huddle was giving his two cents worth.

Woey to have a spell, or Jordon.

Hibbo probably should’ve played but his Casey game last week was prolific without being clean and in control. Haven’t seen his game this week but I wouldn’t be surprised if he was still short of a run. He had a serious injury and he needs to be at his peak to perform.

4.3 to 1 point in the final quarter and still losing to the abjectly bad last placed team.

Gonna be a long flight home across the Nullabor for the Kangaroos.

Now I'm trying to figure out if percentage could matter at the bottom of the ladder.

Hmm... West Coast have scored 150 fewer points than North and conceded almost 300 more. It would take a few almighty beltings for North to drop that much.

I for one endorse the Demon's heading down to Launceston and making the wooden spoon race interesting.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    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.
