I would've made Short come back via the VFL we are not missing him specifically as we have been missing others.

Baker stiff to get omitted.

Hail Mary stuff.

We need to put some work into Gresham. He usually dominates against us. They way we've been going lately if we let him do so again it could result in a loss for us.
This.

Bruce and Membry are the two we need to curb.

They are capable of taking many grabs and pretty good at kicking for goal.

All the omitted guys will be given very specific things to work on and sharpen up in the magoos. Can those of you attending the VFL match please look very closely to identify precisely what these guys are doing, and how well they are executing their roles? It's a very interesting week for the club, and makes the VFL match fascinating to follow. We look forward to your reports.

Bakes stiff but I'm generally happy with the changes. Surprised a bit too that Shorty isn't coming through the VFL but the side looks a hell of a lot stronger now than it has for weeks.

Baker desperately unlucky.

Done nothing wrong to get dropped for mine.

Short, comes in like he is a A grader., rather kept Baker in
Lambert. Good inclusion. Missed him
Edwards. Good inclusion
Astbury. Carthwaite or Astbury. It’s like choosing between Manton or Leys.
Bolton. Worthy of a game, Needs the same period that a Higgins gets in the side
Soldo. A cardboard cutout of Johnny Ironmonger would play the same. Totally useless.

Very underwhelming inclusions besides Lambert & Edwards

We will get the % boost we need. I sense a mammoth victory and Richo to be sacked by Monday - lock it in

Don't bank on it! Seven back after injury with no VFL time so expect them to run out of steam. Then again remember 2017 when we steamrollered just about everybody and expected and easy 4 points against the Saints and we know what happened. We were also expected to run through the Dogs a few weeks ago and that didn't go well either so beware of a wounded prey.

What we've been missing is Edwards AA quality and creativity further up the ground. Let's look for his magic in the way he connects with other mids and forwards. Would love to see some all-star indigenous run and carry: Stack to Edwards to Rioli to Bolton – goal! (x5)

Brilliant ins,it's becoming obvious just how much depth we have when guys like naish and baker are demoted,with almost 3 weekends of not playing the big ins are not revelant as normal ,it's exciting to get back what looks like our team,add nank, Ross,Pickett and who knows what's going to happen, Go Tigers.

Too many underdone players , a real recipe for disaster..
Short coming straight back in is a joke , if Graham or Baker miss out for him an even bigger joke..
No not underdone, almost could of played against crows,have trained heaps and played match practice.
