Pleasing returns from TDK & Newman in the reserves from long term injuries today, but they need at least a couple of more reserves games IMO. I wouldn’t be considering them this week.

Disappointing about McGovern (hamstring) - I thought he played pretty well. Let’s hope he doesn’t miss more than 2-3 weeks. SOJ seems like his obvious replacement. If SOJ is unavailable too, it probably becomes a choice between Kennedy, Setterfield or Honey.

If Dow is OK, do both he & SPS hold their places? If so, I guess Gibbons becomes the medical sub.

And if both Dow & Williams are fit, it will be interesting... I’m sure I’ll get shouted down for suggesting it, but in that event I would put SPS in the starting 22, Gibbons as medical sub, drop Stocker and play Williams as a defender/midfielder.

In - SOJ, SPS, Williams
Out - McGovern (inj), Gibbons (sub), Stocker.

If Dow isn’t right, then Stocker holds his place and Williams plays as a midfielder.

Hopefully we give Murph all the time he needs to get right. Don't rush him in, just make sure he is 100% please :wink:

Great idea , stocker starting to find his feet , his handballs , tackling and toughness was excellent and now you want to drop him !!

Casboult , pittonent and gibbons were the liabilities yesterday

Stocker run over your cat? You've done nothing but take ridiculous pot shots at him all season. He has more afl qualities than most of the players you have chosen ahead of him.

Its not going to be easy we are going to get mauled in the ruck and Dogs midfield will have first use for most of the game.

Their backline is highly suspect and should feast on them.

They dont turn the ball over like Essendon* though and need to try minimise Bonts and Macraes influence easier said than done. Not without a chance if we play to our best and get some players back but the lads sure need to train the house down this week.

“Ridiculous pot shots”? I have no idea what you’re talking about. I’ve said that he might come good but I am not sold on him yet. He might hold his place next week, but if Dow, SPS, SOJ, Williams are all going to play someone has to come out.

We’re going places when guys like Stocker have to fight and scrap to keep their spot in the team.

Great idea , stocker starting to find his feet , his handballs , tackling and toughness was excellent and now you want to drop him !!

Casboult , pittonent and gibbons were the liabilities yesterday


We literally have nobody who can replace Casboult & Pittonet until TDK is match fit and I have said we ought to demote Gibbons to medical sub. I’m in no hurry to drop Stocker but someone will need to come out if Dow, SPS, SOJ & Williams are all to play. Driving high standards with our young guys is not a bad thing.

If we are talking about high standards then plowman and Docherty need to be dropped !!

And Murphy not to return ...

If you think Stocker offers more (at this point of his career) than Doc & Plowman.....well, I give up.

Yep. Hate the prick but his inside work and hands are elite. Often wins the hardball in tight and dishes to their plethora of mids.

Huge challenge for our mids. Especially if Pitt continues to struggle.

They have a massive advantage in the midfield on us, but their backline is their weakness.

First use of the ball is absolutely crucial.
