    I saw that Fullarton is listed as 'new' - stupid question - but does that mean he is in?

    No, it does not mean that he is in.

    He is just on the extended bench and I can tell you he will not be in the final 23 for this round.

  2. OUT: Lever (inj), Brown

    IN: JVR, Langdon

    B: McVee, May, Howes

    HB: Rivers, McDonald, Bowey

    C: Langdon, Petracca, Windsor

    HF: ANB, Fritsch, McAdam

    F: Pickett, JVR, Chandler

    R: Gawn, Oliver, Viney

    I: Salem, Billings, Sparrow, Petty, Woewodin

    Petty can swing forward or back as required.

    I wouldn't mind Salo coming in and taking some of Trac's midfield minutes allowing him more time I50. But assuming BBB is coming in other moves would also be necessary...Woey out (stiff), Windsor sub?

    In: BBB, McAdam, Salem 

    Out: Turner, JVR, Woey 

    Petty would be rucking I'd assume... 

    If no in game injuries I think McAdam and Salem would be chances to be subbed out, similar to Bowey last week.

    These are the changes I’m anticipating. If one of the returning players isn’t starting sub then I think Billings is the most likely candidate.

    With McAdam in the squad, does Salo have a week in the 2s? Assume the other in either BBB/Fullarton



    I don’t think McAdam playing has any relevance to whether Salem is in this week. If he’s fit, he plays. Probably at the expense of Woewodin.

    The sub has to come from the 5 players named as interchange. That is Ben Brown cannot be named as sub.

    The sub has to come from Windsor, Hore, McDonald, Petty or Oliver.

    I think Petty.


    This is not correct. Tsatas was named on the wing but sub for the Bombers last round. Essendon have a tendency to play funny buggers though so no surprise they did that. 

    Every other team has named the sub from the bench and I expect our sub to come from the bench again this round but just wanted to clarify it doesn’t necessarily have to.

  6. Fantastic news for Windsor, Howes and Billings. 

    Let’s hope that Howes, Laurie and Chandler play out of their skin as one will very likely make way for Pickett the following week. (Salem to a HB flank if Howes were to miss).

    Hopefully Schache plays well too as Fullarton was preferred until his hammy setback and will be breathing down his neck.

    This Sunday’s match isn’t an official practice match. It’s a scratch match. The official practice match is at Ikon vs Carlton on Wednesday, February 28. 

    Yes, the match against Richmond is not an intraclub though which I believe the original poster was referring to when they wrote ‘official’.

    I was going for my afternoon walk to Ghoshs Paddock and saw Mark Williams conducting what looked like a goal kicking drill with several players. The players included Gawn, Trac, Brayshaw, Spargo, and Laurie. Some ladies from Korea were watching and all the players had a photo taken with the ladies after the drill finished. Mark Williams was then had a good talk with the Korean ladies.

    Is he purely a wingman or can he play in other positions?  Because we have the wingman positions covered for 2024

    Thankfully when the recruiting team draft players, they aren’t just looking towards the following year where it’s likely the draftee will play a handful of games at AFL level if they’re lucky.

    He may start on the wing or even on a back or forward flank but I think in time he has the attributes of running through the midfield in mostly an outside role.
