Sorry. Should have put the word VITAL in capitals.
We shuffle the team around and drop the weakest link.
Ross will run with the big bodies and Graham plays the high half forward. Both brutal around the contest
Weakest link? Let me think. I will let you know Short ly.

J.R. Fridge. Cotch. Dusty. Shedda. Meatball. Lamblett. Bolts. Stacka all rotating n rummaging around the mid at times during games. can't think of anything this mob lacks, pace, skill, grunt, smarts. There's enough there to give oppo coaches a massive brain fart.

Serious question, do we have space for both of them with Dusty and Cotch back?
Absolutely.
Both must play if Richmond is to win the flag
Graham really hitting his straps and for all his hard grunt work. And Ross is just what the midfield needs, a tenacious in and under midfielder who gives his all at the bottom of a pack.

Who goes out though? It's going to be a genuine dilemma for our next few years. Such a first world club problem.
Doesn't have to be a like for like. As an example, Cotchin comes in, Bolton spends more time forward instead of mid, Stacky goes back and Short is dropped. You look at your bottom end players and go backwards from there. Many midfielders can play other positions just as well if not better than the peripheral players but they play midfield because they are the best. I see our currently selected bottom end players currently arguably as guys like Short, Ellis, Caddy, Baker, Chol. You'd play Cotchin ahead of these any day of the week.

Absolutely agree. This is the dilemma I was suggesting. There are so many benefits with having a really strong squad.

The injury may have been a good thing for ross, as a first year player he may have been tiring about now like Stack is.

With 11 weeks off Ross will be well rested and ready to hit finals.

Ross is a certainty for the remainder of the season.
Will be strutting his stuff on the G on the last Saturday in September.
And we will be very thankful for that.
