Has King, though? Kingy is the modern day kiss of death.
Nah reckon it’s Johnson and Barrett for us. Both tipped against us in every final last year. Barrett even tipped against us in the round 23 game against Brisbane at the G.

Tailia took Chol previous week free up Jack to.Andrews now has a choice go on Jack who is smart or if he doesn't and stays loose needs to man up on Chol or Nank.Martin will be playing forward you can see that.

Anyway it doesn’t really matter who plays. Brad Johnson has tipped against us again; just like every final last year.

We’re set!
Haha, I heard him on RSN this morning and when Harf asked for his tips, I knew who he was tipping in our game! Bob Murphy is the same. He followed us as a kid, but tips against us in almost every big game.

Won't be surprised if Lions play Lester or Birchall on Chol. If I were coaching I know I would. Andrews & Gardiner to take Riewoldt & Martin

I may well be in a minority but I think it is a mistake playing Chol in this QF although I know it is for overall balance. I fully accept he has moments of brilliance in tight and open play and has a good shot at goal but just have doubts on his mindset for a really big game. That said I hope he proves me wrong and turns it on bigtime. The inclusion seem obvious even though the two losing their place haven't done anything wrong

Simply has to perform, although I’m sure he realises that he will be replaced by Lynch next week.

Re: Mabior Chol [merged]
Must improve: Mabior Chol


Chol was given a great opportunity to push his case for finals selection but didn’t quite grasp it. With Tom Lynch and Ivan Soldo both out injured, Chol needed to step up as a forward/ruck but was unable to impact the game as he would have liked. He kicked a goal after a lovely mark on Daniel Talia but finished with just three touches and two hit-outs. If Lynch is fit for the Qualifying Final, then Chol will be the one to make way. He has a huge amount of ability but until he becomes more physical, he will find himself in and out of the team on a needs basis.

Chol can chop Nank out. For that, saved him over Caddy I think.

Only in the first half. Chol was so ineffective in the first half he was moved much higher up the ground in the second half. Personally I think he's better there. I agree, I think Dusty will be spending much more time forward tomorrow.

Last chance for Chol he puts in another @#$%#^ one like last game he's done, there aint no 3rd chance in Finals.

I'd rather concede the ruck for 5 minutes a quarter and have an extra runner.

Yet blokes like Broad and Caddy who've never let the side down on the big stage watch on.

Caddy probably not 100% fit anyway for this game.

Aarts will want to put in a good one cos he's next on the chopping block ...unfortunately for him.
