If Jack is right,

I'll go

In: Jack (10 goals)

Out: 1 of George, caddy or bellis.

I'd probably drop Caddy. we've lost too much pace with Lynch and Caddy. It comes out of our 50 really easily with these 2 in there I reckon.

Assuming none on the injured list are available - do you drop anyone from today?
Next week against GC they have Witts? Does Soldo stay in only for this reason or do we open it up to Balta/CCJ?

Hard to see us playing Lynch, Jack, Chol and Soldo. I'd prefer to see CuJo over Soldo but that again leaves us with three big lugs in the forward line . - with Jack probably underdone too.

Soldo was one of our best players against the suns last year. He must stay in. Save Jack for the giants.

Chol vs Balta; Soldo vs Nanks. Chol/Balta/CCJ get pushed around the park like a baby's pram by a first choice opposition Soldo needs to play as well as he can till Nanks is fit.

Unfortunately while I am no fan at the moment for Bellis I don't see his replacement coming from the likes of Higgins/Baker/Naish/Menadue.

So no change.

If Jack is fit he must play. Need to get as many games as possible into him before finals. Not sure who goes out, probably Ellis as between Short, Houili and Stack have him covered.

Interesting, I dont think there will be any changes, only one would be Jackmond but they might hold him back for one more.

Baker is way better than Ellis.

If Jack is available he should come in along with Baker.
I’d also bring in Balta to a key defensive role as without Rance we lack a key defender who has the potential to match it with the completions best key forwards.
(Not saying Balta is near that yet.Just that he has the potential to be that player and no one else on our list does).

B Astbury Balta Grimes
HB Edwards Valistun Houlie
C Bolton Martin Cotchin
HF Baker Chol Lambert
F Stack Lynch Riewoldt
R Soldo Graham Prestia
I/C Caddy Ellis McIntosh Rioli

Possibly the tallest we have been for a time, but we lose nothing in speed and absent Nankervis Rance and Ross, I believe it is our best 22 to prepare for a finals campaign.

Ellis was our worst. 11 disposals doesn't cut it for someone with his tank. Also watched him several times not go that extra mile to kill the contest.
Think when Jack Ross comes back can see Ellis going out.

Started the year well but the last few games has played meow!

The past few games the bad Brandon has been back.

He better be careful or he will find himself back in the VFL pretty soon

Noah is best suited as a HF , or ruck rover type for now that can just use his size and athletic power to burn the opposition once he works out what its all about.

He may become a Key Defensive Prospect down the track.

Apart from Rance and Dave, we dont really have any others, Garth is undersized and not as agile or athletic as Grimes and Broad so isnt really a 3rd tall at AFL level. Miller is not setting the world on fire with his development either.

Grimes and Broad are perfect 3rd talls that are versatile and can cover for periods in games but not play the role week in week out.

The Tigers need another true key defender with size ie 197cm 98kg+

Out: McIntosh, Soldo

In: Naish, Balta

Seen enough of Soldo. Marshall had him for breakfast today. He was useless. McIntosh same.

Save Jack for GWS
