  1. My thoughts ...

    Tommo in. 

    Smith back to being sub. He's a classic impact player. (Ted Hopkins says hi!)

    Clarry in, of course. Harmes out.

    Not sure where this leaves Hibbo. Obviously if Bowey is injured, he (Hibbo) takes his place in the 22.

     

  2. I'm in the 'rest Jack Viney' camp. His body could do with a rest! His attack on the ball/opponent is the most relentness I've seen since Paul Kelly (Swans). I confess to not being a great fan of his in the past. I now hang my head in shame. His 2023 season has been brilliant.

    I suspect Norf will play 2 rucks ... Goldstein and Xerri presumably. So, I think we should play 2 rucks, to give Max something of a break during the match, and to give Grundy a run.

    I think that Sparrow is a good replacement for Viney. Not convinced about Dunstan.

    Perhaps Hibbo in for Jordon or Harmes or Woewodin? Harmes' first half v Richmond was terrible, but he did at least improve in the second half. Woewodin isn't getting many possessions, but I think that long term he will be fine. Poor old JJ ... I think his form has pretty much peaked. 

    I don't think we can afford to rest May, but I agree that he is looking a bit tired/old. 

    Excuse my ramblings, but it is past my usual bedtime.

    But I thought Balta put the ball on the ground while he was being tackled.

    is’nt that  incorrect disposal?( even though he didn’t dispose of it…..it’s like bouncing it when someone has hold of your jumper…. a free)

    I agree.  I thought the same.

    At one point in the last, after yet another huge cry for ball after one of our players, rivers I think, actually KICKED the ball, I yelled out at the top of my voice (and that is pretty loud - particularly in the perfect acoustics at the top of the Ponsford!):

    'WOULD YOU ALL STOP YELLING BALL!!!!!!!!!!! - LEARN THE BLOODY RULE!!!!'

    Not witty. Not clever. 

    But very cathartic.

    I similarly disgraced myself ... in MCC members. 

    At that incident I yelled out "shut up ... he kicked it". (Should that have been in capitals?)

    The only times I yelled out "ball", the umpire was clearly in agreement with me, and duly paid the free kick.
