Outs

Naish ... Eggmolessed .......... too soft and no urgency.

Ross ... Close to being Eggmolessed,

Hugo ... Had a go but gets caught watching rather than going he's not ready but will be a player in the future.

Possibly would go a fourth change also.
 

toothless

Don't push me 'cos I'm close to the edge...

Ins: Cotchin, Bolton, Edwards & Prestia (Lambert 2 weeks away, RD 12 V Ess Dreamtime)
Outs: Naish, Ralphsmith, Ross & Collier Dawkins (thought Riley was the best out of the 4), but he needs to kick more, 13 HB and 5 Kicks)

Jake Aarts very impressive but Rioli & Castagna seriously should be on notice, They do not work hard enough, bordering on invisible.

On Mansell, he's a beauty I like him but don't think we'll make 5 changes, think he'll play seconds.

Just on Astbury starting to become a liability, bordering on zero pressure and is too slow. Compare to Balta and you really see the difference..
Dimma needs to stop this lunacy of Astbury going in the ruck., bring in CCJ

Gotta bring in a relief ruck, preferably CCJ. Enough of seeing Astbury or Marlion, battling away. And Nank really needs more relief.

Heading to the VFL game today. Will get a look at how much stock is in the cupboard.

I'm hoping to see another 5 goals for CCJ, 10 tackles and 2 goals for MRJ and 25 touches in the midfield for Stack.

How is Graham escaping scrutiny? He has been average for a couple of weeks during a period where he should be stepping up. If I was Dimma I would be all over Graham.

So easy to be critical after a bad loss and even though the obvious guns will return I’m still thinking we need to tweak a set up a bit , yes CJ pace is not great as a forward , however I want to see him tried to help both Lynch and Nank . One thing I’ve noticed over the past month , im happy to be proven wrong , however the only constant bloke front and centre to crumb inside 50 is Aarts , slightly different roles but where is the CHF George, wheres Rioli ? Where’s Lambo ;) Seriously it’s time to up scoreboard pressure not just defensive pressure , enter Syd or MJ into the deep 50 , I’m also going Dow in even with the guns back, we MUST ad 2 way runners that back half is having to work way too much overtime.

Ralphsmith for me is one who will benefit from having the odd AFL game this season, however get some ball at VFL level will do him no harm either in his development.

RCDs form is very encouraging, however he’s workrate when he dosent have the ball is poor imho, I think that’s the simple reason he hasn’t played earlier, has the talent , now just needs to lift that workrate, we can’t have 2 mids who only run one way

Pity it’s telecast otherwise I could have given you some tips on doing a report BT :cool: .

ill be really interested to know how Biggy goes , I think we may need him to improve pretty quickly for us to remain at the top

yeah Agree. Love the way he has come on. Hunger is there. Hope he stays in the team.
Castagna a lot better than previous weeks.
Rioli, his patches of being MIA are too big. A lot of chasing, but no influence. Unsure if he is carrying a small niggling foot injury. Just seems a bit of the pace

If there's no match up for Astbury then CCJ should come in for him.
