I looked - but found no thread!!!!

Can I assume we all agree that there will be no changes against Demons?

Perhaps bring in a ruck to help Nank (v Gawn?)

I would bring in CCJ as we need more in the ruck and Nank needs a break.

Not sure who to leave out though, maybe an unlucky Aarts?

Surely KMac comes back in; probably at the expense of Aarts - who would likely be the sub (Could be Ross again as he did play VFL).

I think CCJ will get his chance (probably when we give Nank a rest in 2-3 weeks).

On a side note: Not sure Mansell has got the kudos he deserves - a damn good 2nd game - fits into our side perfectly.

In - Coleman-Jones
Out - Mansell

Mansell did nothing wrong but we need to pick a team to negate the Demon's height advantage. CCJ to give Nank the chop out. Can't play Marlion in the ruck this week and we need to keep Balta and Astbury in defence.

This for me. Kid is unlucky but we need the extra ruck this week.

Who plays on K Pickett, if Nigel is replaced by CJ
That is a good point Taz. Maybe Bakes? But Nigel would seem more suited.

I'm concerned about overloading Nank. I do think he will need a chop out against Gawn and the time seems right for CCJ to have a crack. But who makes way if not Nigel? Maybe Aarts?

I think CJ plays, I also think the Skip might be rested

Playing Nigel allows Bakes to play up the ground & its a thing of beauty that he does

Yes Gawn is dominating, but if Dusty is dominating and the opposition selects an inexperienced kid just because of Dusty, would you worry?

No change.

Looking forward to CCJ sometime this season though.

Yes agree on Nigel and Bakes. I hope the skipper plays though; we need him against the Melbourne midfield.

Good position to be in.

With the decent break from the Saints game, no need to rest anyone.

As previously posted, Ruck could be an issue.

Gawn and Jackson had 46 Hit Outs against McEvoy (17) on the weekend

Nank had 20 against McEvoy and Ceglar (25 Combined) in Round 2

Nank will need a chop out at some stage, Marlion Grigg may not be able to have any impact as the wildcard, nor would I want to risk Astbury.

All roads may lead to a CJ inclusion who would no doubt want to work his @ss off after last year.

So who goes out if we look at the 2nd Ruck? Mansel would be pretty stiff but likely candidate.

Jack Ross medical sub to come on at 3/4 time.
