The Dogs are doing well so picking a team with a number of raw kids could really bite us but with a number of our stars not functioning we may have no choice when it looks like Martin and Lambert out injured and Aarts and Riloi have gone missing on the field

It won’t matter we’ll get flogged. Dimma‘s game plan will be picked apart by the Dogs

I'm still a believer in the threepeat, but there is no doubt the Tigers have lost their mojo.
Dimma and the players need to find a way to overcome this malaise.
Perhaps it's time to inject some enthusiasm into the team, generate some new energy.
Irrespective of introducing a few new players against the Doggies I would like to see some new faces who might have been pushing close.
On tonight's effort and the number of players who are simply out of form, the Doggies would be pretty odds-on to take the points against us next Friday.
It's going to be a long MC meeting this week.
Time to be bold and make some decisive moves.

Great opportunity coming in as the wounded underdog

Martin, Lambert are obviously out , I’m going to omit Aarts , I’m throwing MJ in under the big lights, I still think we need class up forward.

ins MJ, CJ i want Balta locked in down back and we need another marking option forward and somebody to give Nank a breather , on today’s form I don’t believe RCD deserves a gig, however hes shown previously he had ear to a chance, we need mids so debut the boy, Naish found plenty of it again, may as well have another look .

Go Tiges

Did Grimes get injured as well?
He looked to be injured and if he and Flossy are out, we are in big trouble.

I think Aarts and Rioli need to go and our Forwards coach needs to start again. It’s just not working!

Maybe we should copy the Dees entries, but this would require our forwards leading out to the ball and some accurate kickI guess. Can’t just rely on freak marks from Bolton or maybe Jaaack. Opposition teams do their homework on us and we must improve our forward entries.

Who is our Forwards coach? Has some work to do with big Tom!

Spot on, Happy T
Our forward entries have been woeful. The 'bombing' into the 50 just allows opposition defenders to turn the contest into at least a 50-50 situation, which are good odds down back. The Tigers' forward line doesn't seem to be that oriented to making leads or drawing offenders away to create space.
Hope the coaching group can get this sorted pretty soon. If it can't/doesn't then players like Lynch will become more a liability than he currently seems to be.

I don't quite get the obsession with RCD? the first question Dimma gets is

'will Collier-Dawkins play next week?'

don't they watch the 2nds?

the 2nds worried me a bit today - made our depth look shallow.

Out: martin, lambert, grimes

In: Ross, CJ, stack

3 forced changes is a bitter pill.
