Very strange change. Don’t get it. Drop a forward but bring in a defender. Egg seemed well down the pecking order. How he gets a game ahead of the likes of Ross is bewildering to say the least.

Hmmm - not too keen on the change. Out goes a takling machine for somebody who seems to shirk a lot of contested stuff...

They want Ross in the VFL for full minutes.

Egg might play as a small pressure forward without Daniel we become slower.

Bit perplexing that one.

Daniel will probably be the sub to give him a bit of a shake up.

Might plan on slipping Cadds forward to replace Sausage. don't mind Eggsy into the back half, with the new open n low contact game in place now. You want serious run, carry n ball use coming out of the back half. Marlion back up to the wing with Pinjarra for the two way run n hurt factor.

Ross could play full minutes in AFL team. Geez can’t see Egg as a pressure forward. His inability to apply pressure is probably the biggest knock on his game. He did not play well in hot games.

Bizarre selection. Interested to see what they’re thinking. Reckon Ross has a right to feel slighted.

Ross's manager might start fielding calls from other clubs in the next few weeks.

He impacted well against the Blues should've played in the starting 22 last week.

Stiff he is.

Yep, apparently Egg has come back stronger and fitter and performed very well in the VFL. Straight to the backline imo.

Sorry but that’s a horrible move. Structurally horrible. Regardless of what propel think of Rioli he still is critical to how we set up. If they want to drop him that’s fine. But bring someone in who is a like for like.

Wont mind the changes if Caddy plays forward, Pickett back to the wing and Egg down back.

Egg in because of Easter. C'mon Tiges, April Fool's Day was yesterday.

Disappointed seeing Rio out, but then again he's not sparking enough.

Just do the job over these kids and get the 4 points. At least Buddy's out.

The 23rd man will bring the averages down, but the selected team is Richmond's third-oldest v Sydney and 12th-oldest ever.

No matter how many *smile* kicks Marlion does he won't get dropped cos he nails 3 brutal tackles straight after.
