I would not play May. No change except Billings as sub with Woey in for a complete run,

Even though we won, we had some quiet players, but, with a 5 day break, we need to see how the boys pull up and who is available before we worry about form changes. I didn’t think there was anyone tonight who was so bad that they should be dropped.

As good as Windsor has been I’d give the kid a spell especially with the five day break

Give Woey a full game, Billings the sub & fit May in if fit😀

There'll be some sore bodies after that one.

Impossible to pick a team as I'm sure there could be some niggles that might force some changes.

Does anyone know how big the squad is that went over? Is it just tonights team plus the emergencies?

Windsor doesn’t look as though he needs a rest. At his rate of improvement he’ll probably be in our best 6 at the club after next week. I haven’t seen a player come at our club come do what Windsor has. We’re a top 4 level club, and this kid comes in first year and improves the side drastically. Unless he gets injured he’ll be winning the rising star.

Might look at Hore and the suggestion of swapping Billings is a good one. Four day break is tough after such a gruelling game. 

I would give Billings a full game. Look at last week's game where he was nearly BOG. As for May, I would give it another week.

Billings as a wing rotation and his foot skills are important to us.  Ha stays in, no one in our reserves has the polish he does.  Also gives Langdon and Windsor a chop out and keeps our run fresh through the game

No change for me. Woey was a great injection of speed, but I think we’d need Billing’s clean disposals / fwd 50 entries for this game.

Milera out is a big loss for Adelaide, so I think we should have some forward advantage over their depleted backline.

 

TMac should go to Tex to leave Leaver as the intercept.

I feel for Max. ROB is a tough opponent, so after a 5 day break I wouldn’t mind if we shared some of the rucking duties around.

Adelaide has uncharacteristically poor disposal efficiencies at the moment. Keep the midfield pressure on. Leave Crouch alone as he doesn’t always take the best options and man up on Dawson who should be their best player. Laird is elite so not much we can do there.

Please make training a very light one.

The Afl must be taking the Fizz.

Two away games against SA teams in a row.

Throw in a five day break.

I hope we crush the Crows.

It is an absolute shocking draw. I mean you couldn’t disadvantage a team anymore. 
 

Glad the team has made a mini holiday out of it for the club - it may actually end up working in our favour.

Crows form has been genuinely putrid. They have to turn the corner soon and won't be surprised if its on Thursday. I expect a stern challenge from them.

BB is super important for us. Gotta manage him though the season. Given the ridicoulous 5-day break perhaps Fullarton comes in for him. he'll provide a chop out for Maxy as well.

billings was quiet but we should persevere. It'll be a hot contest again so he'll need to front up better otherwise Woey will take his place.

We could look back on this week in Adelaide as providing the platform for our flag tilt. Back-to-back wins in SA will work wonders for belief and confidence.

Meanwhile Port has 3 consecutive home games, but they lost the first one 😁.

At least the Crows only have one extra day, but with a trip back from Perth. So both are disadvantaged in a way. 
 

It sounds like the club are turning this fixture debacle into a positive and setting up a mini hub for the week. The last time we were in a hub we won a flag.

Winning this game and being 4-1 after three interstate games would be amazing. It leaves just four interstate games (excl. Alice Springs) for the remaining 18 rounds and one of those is against WCE 😊

On Steven May please give him the extra week to recover please medical department.

No need for him against the Crows.

Get him right for the Lions at the G so we can finish their season.

Hubs are good for our group, we respond well to them.

Win against the Crows and we are a lock for top 2.

Has to get the ball though.

If there is no change to the squad I would probably swap Woey for Billings.

If May comes in then Billings out, Hore as the sub.

    TROUBLE by The Oracle

    Situated roughly in Australia's geographic centre, Alice Springs has for many years been a troubled town suffering from intermittent crime waves, particularly among its younger residents. There was a time a little while ago when things were so bad that some even doubted the annual AFL game in the town would proceed.  Now, the hope is that this Sunday’s Melbourne vs Fremantle encounter will bring joy to the residents of the town and that through the sport and the example of the participants,

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
